Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

London - Cape Town Central
International
The flight staff were excellent. Food delicious. Wine selection substandard. Seat configuration not great - the herringbone doesn’t work, too cramped & you have to look behind yourself to see out the windows.

Bridgetown - Manchester
International
I have just got back home today from 18 days in the Caribbean. I flew BA out, and, for my first time ever, Virgin Atlantic back, and I am still traumatised by what V.A. found appropriate to serve us for dinner and breakfast. While knowing that of course it's industrial catering, and of course cost savings are a main factor with airlines, the "quality" was so guttingly bad that the whole mealtime exercise turns into an utter waste of resources, given that most passengers on board, at least in economy, can't but have left most if not all of it....so revolting it was. I became suspicious even before boarding since so many flight attendants in V.A. uniform were buying themselves slices of pizza at Bridgetown airport. Bring your own, whatever, anything will be better than the jail slops you'll get otherwise. BA on the way out were *worlds* away for the better.

"Food definitely needs to be better. It really is awful and uneatable. It doesn’t cost a lot just to make a nice pasta dish or seasoned food."
