Likes: price Dislikes: Courteousness, Integrity, Safety (gate agent gave my seat away then blamed me, the security door was closed. She stated that I checked in too late although I had a boarding pass and lied that there were no more seats. Fortunately, an older gate agent was present and took action to print a ticket for me and they reopened the security door. Then they rushed me to get my stuff as I tried to meet the demand. It is clear to me that was indeed happened is that they already calculated the weight as there were additional seats. The problem was resolved and I had an enjoyable flight, but not without unneeded stress.).

I paid extra to board zone 1 they called zone 1-3 at the same time so that was pointless. Crew was unfriendly and I felt like an inconvenience. Wasn’t able to go to a gate had to take a shuttle to the gate and that process was a mess. I won’t fly sun country again unless it is an emergency.

Tried to check in online as per usual - what a nightmare. Couldn't change my seat, tried 16 times and was rejected from process at change seat screen every time. Ended up having to phone BA at 5.30 am in the UK on my mobile from the US as was automatically allocated last row non-aisle seat - the worst place on the plane. On hold with executive club for 25 mins - I'm dreading the charges. Executive club customer service also couldn't change the seat (no reason given) but could see a free seat was available and would put a note about seat change for the airport check in staff. Got to airport - told no note on system and that UK BA executive club customer service staff had 'lied' to me by check in staff at san diego End up sitting next to toilet with constant noise all night. I will not fly with BA again (other than to try and use up existing avios). Virgin are now giving way superior service on my transatlantic routes and swiss air for my short hauls. This flight was confirmation that ba no longer offers good value or service.

Smooth sailing...no delays, no cancellation. Everything went smoothly. Seating still cramped and no real food except what's available at airport vendors. Crew was efficient but not overly friendly.
