Basically doesn't work for most trips. Does the bare minimum badly, everything else forwards you to either call a number (which is never picked up), or a regular website. Maybe this is more a review of BA's shocking lack of service and competence in general. A specific example of a feature that didn't work was COVID documents upload, which constantly just had a greyed out submit button, as a result I wasn't able to check in online so had to arrive at the airport extra early.

The fact that I can't submit my COVID documents on any platform and will have to arrive extra early to check in is majorly annoying. I contacted customer support and their response was to try a different browser and that they had lots of reports of issues with the app, so I tried Firefox, Chrome, and Edge. It still had the same issue where I click "submit" for my COVID documents, and then nothing happens. Contacted customer support again and was told that I would have to check in at the airport.

The "upcoming" and "past" bookings are broken. If your booking has multiple flights, then the entire booking (and all contained flights) will show up as past once the first flight is completed. This will also cause all of the dates for the flights to revert to the unix start date of Jan 1 1970. Therefore, you cannot check the dates, times, and status of any other flights in a booking after the first flight is completed. This makes the app less useful than just using Google.
