Professional and very polite.

Mar 16, 2020

Just felt I had to pay Soo much due to the coronavirus and closing of flights to Europe. Businesses should have been more compassionate. I had an award ticket several days later that was useless to get us out safely.

Should offer complementary snacks or soft drinks at the least for the 4 hours flight.

I truly appreciate the help of the British Air staff to ensure that we were able to access our tickets to fly from Chicago to Louisville. I realize the virus and travel ban are creating very challenging situations for staff to work with and the staff member who assisted us was exceptional.
