What's New in Version 5.11
- We've made some improvements to the Flight Status screens.
Better than it used to be, still needs work though
The app is much better than it used to be and has a much clearer and more sophisticated aesthetic that I'm hoping one day the desktop website will have applied to it, as that is looking pretty old now. Anyway the app is fast and tells you relevant info about upcoming flights etc, but booking a flight is still neither intuitive or particularly clear, and I don't want to be sent out of the app! Make the booking all contained within the mobile friendly layout and easier to understand. Also when are you going to make booking a flight + hotel together a feature on the app?! It is very slow going with updates but one day we'll get there.
Good but clunky
Looks good. Feels a bit clunky. Great at holding your bookings. Checking in, choosing seat and getting boarding card all easy and much better than before. Links to passbook to keep boarding cards. I've never booked a flight on it. The whole thing feels a bit slow but probably better than competitor airlines apps. Gate number for your flight? The functionality is in there but I've never seen it used. Look at the monitor in the airport for that. Same with delays. Airport monitor says "delay". BA app says "on time". Clearly BA don't use that functionality either.
The version from a few years ago is still better but this remains the best airline app out there
The previous app was the best in the industry (I should know cos I have been flying BA and other airlines almost weekly for over 20 years). Now, with the latest upgrade, I often use a paper boarding card because it is more reliable - go figure. BA, fire your IT developers and re-release the old version without the link to passbook so you don't have to swap between apps to get your boarding pass that won't update anymore if something changes!
