Conflicting information given by staff

I recently returned from a flight to the USA, I checked in 24hrs before the flight, but the app froze, after several attempts to check in, it finally gave me my seat, but said I had no checked luggage, even though I was trying to add an extra bag. At the airport they charged me for the bags but told me to contact BA customer services on my return to the UK to claim a refund of the difference. However, customer service in the UK told me they wouldn’t refund anything as it’s their policy not to do so.

As in many of the other comments, what the hell have they done with the old British Airways where customers were actually looked after? The flight was the 2nd worst flight I’ve had with any company since 1989, and there have been a lot of flights!!
It’s not customer service, it’s customer rip off..... l will definitely be looking for alternative companies for future flights, and have just used Emirates to go to Cape Town, what a wonderful flight that was! BA customer service should try them, they might actually learn something...

Really Simple Stuff ,

BA heading downwards...

I used to be a big fan of BA however so many things seem to be heading downwards and little different from the Ryan Airs type carriers. You can’t even get a cup of tea on a flight without ‘making a Marks & Spencer purchase’... The booking process offers the ability to pay to choose a seat when buying your flight. Fine. When I bought my tickets the process offered the option to choose from the remaining seats at check in 24 hours before flying. However... Mobile check-in now charges you a minimum of £13 to choose your seat during the last few hours before your flight. No free seat choice. Just extra charges extra charges. BA offered me the ability to pay £30 to check my bag before flying. I was sick so on a recent flight I paid to make the journey easier. 2 minutes later an email arrived to say the flight was full so bag check was now free for everyone. The details made you great. The details make you disappoint too. Please get better, much better BA!
