Constant in app glitches. Want to add your Executive Number to a booking (which should automatically be added when you've signed in and booked IN APP)? App crashes. Want to change the date on a leg of your flight? App says "invalid date format" even though you've selected it from their calendar pop up. Absolutely infuriating. Almost as bad as having to call BA customer service.

I spent about 45 minutes now trying to register, create an account, and look of a flight. I have not been able to do a single one of those three things in the 45 minutes I have wasted. I've used about a dozen other apps for other airlines and have never had a problem. I'll be uninstalling the app and avoiding BA in general moving forward as their website is equally useless for checking in.

Extremely poor experience, unworthy of the price we paid for our tickets. I could not retrieve boarding passes for my family, the app is slow and reloads every time I change to another app for a moment to do necessary things like look up passport information. Android has 70% market share at the time I am writing this review. Do better, BA, orI will reconsider my options for flying next time.
