Thumbs up Kudo's to BA!!!

I just want to make a quick comment re BA customer service.

There are many times we are quick to complain about poor treatment or poor service but, too often, not willing to share a great experience.

Today I had reason to request a refund for a BA cancelled itinerary and spoke with Todd who, I have to say, was diligent and handled the process beautifully!

Thank you Todd and thank you BA for making a difficult situation as well as could be expected...exceeded my expectations!

It's good to hear the colleague was diligent and friendly, but not so much kudos to BA in that they cancelled your flight

Sounds like Todd will go on to greater things after their time with BA.

That's always nice to hear. I must say I've had some rather good feedback to make in the last 2 weeks.

And if you want BA to know, you can even tell them here: http://ba.com/thankyou

Yes here CS agents usually get called Toad.

Glad to hear Todd sorted it out for you.

If you feel strongly enough to post this on FT, why not also fill in a well done on BA.com. The telephone agents deal with a lot of grief without getting many thanks.
I am sure it will be appreciated.

I sent in a compliment for a telephone agent who did an amazing job some years back. Never got a reply, so I hope it did get through to them!

I've also been blessed with a couple of brilliant agents recently. Took time to note their names and send a thank you.

I've sent many well done comments and also Golden Tickets. If done online, I have never had a reply.
I get a warm feeling of doing the right thing. The rest is out of my hands.

Thanks to Covid19 I have more experience in cancelling and refunding flights than I ever thought I would, and have to say BA are among the best in the industry.

Don't get me started on Swiss though - MCOL case pending.

While we are on the subject of kudos, had my first two sectors on BA since May. And, by jove, it is good to be back.

I flew last week on LH/EW and it was, frankly, woeful. BA seem, by comparison, seem to have struck the right balance. Simple but friendly “wear a mask” announcements, CC who seem relaxed and delighted to be back at work, an excellent hand sanitiser + wipe + waste bag provision upon boarding, and a surprisingly good CE meal box. T5 is alive, and the First Wing ordering system is fantastic and quick.

It’s not what it was, but it is what it is. I feel safe, but also welcomed. Well done BA. (But bring back ice ASAP...)

Yes, I suspect my enthusiasm would be lessened if I had had the same on a long haul...
