you need to try and fly the first in 787 or a380 they are newer and frankly better

Crazy Cuber says:

I want to see emeries first claass i saw your instagram story

Oliver Gray says:

Will you be flying thief brand new business class on their new A350 fleet arriving in July? All seats with direct aisle access and a full privacy door!

Thomas Rayder says:

Loved this video!!! Reminds me of AA Flagship First however more modern seat.

AK Traveler says:

Love your videos! However why would you title a video “honest review”? Aren’t all of your reviews honest? Just curious and not being a jerk.

Personally I find BA to be increasingly a poor value option – but good to see that First Class is still a good product. My previous journeys in economy, premium economy and business have all been disappointing in one way or another. The service onboard is certainly nowhere near what it should be – especially in business. The seat design is what causes most of the problem in business and if you’re in a window seat you’re a) unlikely to see much of the cabin crew and b) have to perform various acrobatic acts to be able to get in and out when people are sleeping. As for economy – particularly on domestic – they are simply competing with budget airlines, which is fine so long as you know that’s what you’re getting. Premium Economy (WT+) is an ok product but often over-priced in comparison with others IMHO. As for international economy on BA – I’d avoid at all costs, it’s just terrible, especially if you’re downstairs on a A380 unless you like being rained on whilst indoors 🙂

You can take the boy out of economy, but you cant take the economy out of the boy.

Where is the window?

Mango Liang says:

BA First=Business in most skytrax 5 star airlines

John Gorrie says:

Welcome to Kuwait. I’ve b3en here a while and world traveller plus has been the most! Kuwait not the best for the card deals.

Michael Steele Aviation says:

Another solid review. BA just needs to update its old ageing product in first and business class both for long haul and intra Europe. Once they do that they will be good to go.

Mona Minakshee Manjaree Bhukta says:

Hey!! I regularly watch your videos. I must say, you have putting a lot of effort for making the video awesome. I am planning to travel from new Delhi to Zurich for a round trip. Can you please suggest me the best airline at low cost of economy class

Mohamad Bilal says:

Can you try Mea airlines business class pls

Domenico Marino says:

Thanks for the review Dan! BTW, you’re a first class guy in a first class seat. I really love your reviews.

werner van gelder says:

First class of BA looks worse than business class on the best carriers

anilr2k4 says:

how many cuts do u do???? stick to one full sentence per cut

Alan Stuart says:

Great review Dan, thank you! I flew from LAX with BA in First on their A380. It was very good indeed. I will now try it on their 747 before they phase out the 747. Thank you again!

john nguyen says:

more like business class

Matthew Unger says:

Going to be flying this product in July! Thanks for your incredibly detailed reviews, Dan. Great content.

Seasalt and Rosebuds says:

When you say about your British accent has been ruined- are you actually British, or did you live there for a bit when you grew up?? Love your vids- especially this one as my brother is a BA steward!
