Online Check in process was messy. Flight was uncomfortable - old school planes, eat before you fly, no leg room. Flight was rescheduled by British 3 days before departure without any option causing too a short of connection. We raced at Heathrow to reach our final destination and our luggages didn’t follow us. We had to go back to the airport to get them in the afternoon. Leaving from EWR - coming back to JFK and found out 3 days before departure… Will avoid this airline in the future…

Didn’t announce reason for delay. Staff was vague about departure time. Flight crew could have asked if we need help in figuring out the controls and adjustments. Staff needs to be more helpful
