Pros: "In time ,food"
Pros: "The seats have great leg room and recline nicely"
Cons: "7kg and only one carry one!?? Budget airlines do better!! Try being a professional with a laptop and a few travel essentials and you won’t get far on Qatar. How crazy. Even if you have diamond one world status (the highest) unless u fly business class there is no chance in getting more onboard for your carryon. Works best airline my a**!"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Flight schedule in time."
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"

Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"

Pros: "Overall ok. Wheel chair was.not available In Karachi and in Houston"
Cons: "Attention to special needs"
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Cons: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "Slept most of the way"
Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Pros: "Good seating and entertainment."

Pros: "The crew in this sector is ALWAYS rude, and the food is substandard."
Cons: "Better attitude from the crew, food quality needs improvement (substantial) and cleanliness"
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures too very long."

Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seat upgraded to business class. Superb service and comfort!"
Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"
Cons: "WiFi poor."
Cons: "I wasn’t aware that there is a ticket with only 15kg baggage allowance - thank God I was taken to the airport by a relative and could leave some stuff with them. Of course, I should’ve checked - but I didn’t know there was an option below 23 kg. You’re never done with learning l"
Cons: "Don’t expect any assistance with the change of a passenger name - you will be asked to buy a new ticket without reimbursement for the mistake that is by any stretch of imagination only a duplicate bookings. What will happen is that either the travel company or the airline simply will blame you."
Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"
Cons: "On the Boeing 777 series which I flew on, the seats are UNUSUALLY CRAMPED TOGETHER. I have flown for decades internationally: this was absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "I liked everything! Excellent service. Great food, entertainment, and flight. Nothing went wrong. Thank you!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. Lots of choices for entertainment. Had enough legroom in a regular seat."
Cons: "Being on FlyDubai for the first leg of the trip. We had a difficult time with our check in and our son's luggage was lost."
Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."
Cons: "The boarding was long drawn out process, done in two stages that started 2 hours before departure! Why does it have to be this painful?"

Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Pros: "Best food on a plane I have had yet"
Pros: "I liked the boarding process. And the food this time wasn't bad."
Cons: "The crews have just been ok. There were maybe 2 that went above and beyond but the others are just ok. There is nothing outstanding about the service."
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Pros: "Cabin crew, very professional"
Pros: "Spacious, great entertainment selection, crew is very attentive"
Cons: "Not all seats can lean back"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."
Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"
Pros: "Just about everything"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Pros: "The entire service was amazing from the flight attendants to the food, very amazing!"
Cons: "Everything was awesome!"
Pros: "The entertainment system, the items handed out for our comfort, the food, the attention."
Cons: "The problem which happens when the person in front of you leans back his/her seat. It makes watching something on the entertainment system very difficult!"
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Love the entertainment system and the staff is friendly and incredibly professional. Will travel Emirates whenever I can if I am traveling internationally."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."
Cons: "Piece of checked baggage was lost en-route. It took over 2 hours to get through checked baggage and customs in the middle of the night because after we had already filled out all information regarding piece of luggage with one baggage counter employee. Japanese Customs refused to let us through due to "unaccompanied baggage" since the piece was lost by the airline and had us go back to another baggage employee who couldn't grasp that we already went through the process and had no clue what to do."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Screen was not very sensitive and arrow swipes did not always work. I was constantly switching between handheld and touch screen to switch movies or make selections"
Cons: "Touch screen problems . See above comment."
Pros: "Big screen"
Cons: "I and my friend booked together but we had to sit separate. All round trip. What the hell?"
Cons: "It would be nice if at least snacks and a cup of water were provided."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and we landed early."
Cons: "British Airways should at least give out small bottles of water or cookies to soften passengers affinity towards the airline. I did not buy anytjing but was also not served anything. In comparison to low cost carriers, I felt underappreciated."
Pros: "The flight was super relaxed and comfortable. We really loved the Magnum ice cream at the end of the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to plane safety issues, but the crew fixed it and got us to London almost in time. I didn’t love that there were no vegan food options, and even if there had been, they ran out of fresh food by time we were served. Not great."
Pros: "The overall flight experience was positive."
Cons: "Our tickets were suspended before our flight to Nairobi. We can’t understand why BA would do this?"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Earphone, squashy seat, limited leg space in economy class"
Cons: "Our BA flight from Vienna to London was 30 minuets delayed and we almost missed our connection. BA crews and captain never apologized or explained the reason. They didn’t bother to check and announce the gate of major connection flights like some other airlines would do. They just said “Check the departure information board when you arrive.” We made to our AA flight only it happened to be in the same terminal."
Cons: "Seats size for business class doesn’t meet level of business class"
Cons: "They were late, once we were ready to board the plane it has been changed to another gate due to Brittish delay, so we had to do nother security review. We faced a bad attitude in the countter that was very dissapointing."
Cons: "it is ridiculous that i should have to pay 75 euro for my first bag. additionally, BA doesn't even give you free refreshments anymore!!!! When every other airline does better than BA on these fronts, why would I ever fly with them again?"
Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "Transfer at the Heathrow airport was such a hustle. Even though we had about hour and a half for transfer, take getting off board into consideration, we were on the run to our next gate for about 50 minutes without stopping, barely had a chance to use a restroom. Longer transfer period is needed most definitely. Also at least complimentary glass of water would be nice on the board."
Pros: "Your terminal is very pleasant and not the worst to have a delay. .....and I know it's beyond your control when incoming planes are delayed"
Cons: "No gate and we were bused to get on the plane the old fashioned way......no big deal for me, but this was the return leg from escorting my elderly mother home and I was very glad she wasn't with me."
Cons: "Seat cushions inadequate; back support insufficient. Food mediocre."
Pros: "It took off. It landed. No drama. 15 mins early."
Cons: "No complimentary hookers, whisky or cocaine"
Pros: "Everything was fine....."
Cons: "horrible seating"
Cons: "trapped on this plane for over 3 hours and they can't even spring for a lousy soda and bag of crisps."
Pros: "The flight was a bit too short to really judge, But the crew was pleasant and the flight was fine."
Pros: "Everything was okay! The plane was kind of empty and that why the service was excellent, the crew very friendly."
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Very informative about delays."
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"
Pros: "Nothing was bad. Take off to landing was great. Red wine was"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant & food was fine."
Cons: "The flight was late, which made us miss our next flight."
Pros: "announcements made by the pilot about weather and the flying conditions and travel time were very good."
Cons: "the plane was delayed and the check-in person gave me a different time for when the plane would leave vs what was on the boards. i was lucky that i did not listen to her or i would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Nothing - I arrived eventually."
Cons: "Undue stress, over booked flight, lost luggage. Zero customer service. Will never fly BA again."
Cons: "You got delayed I almost missed my connection flight"
Cons: "I didnt like that there was no food or water to be purchased after security."
Pros: "Better to avoid BA. At least they should serve some water. Next time I'll use some other airlines to get to London."
Pros: "The crew were very welcoming and took care to explain what was happening and why."
Cons: "The new 'pay-as-you-go' model makes this premium national carrier more like a budget-end option. For instance, with the refreshments, not only do they not accept cash, but they don't accept the full range of bank cards (from main stream European banks). It was as frustrating for the crew as for the passengers."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Cons: "It was 1.5 hours late and I didn't even get water"
Pros: "The airbus 320 was clean and well maintained"
Pros: "Good and professional services. This flight was a short one but everything went as expected."
Cons: "I don't like the LHR airport as the layout is confusing and too big. The shuttle between terminals are not easy to take."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very limited seat spacing we were very much jammed into the aircraft. Also, there was no service offered, I could not even get a cup of water"
Pros: "I was not able to get one glass of water to take my medication, without having to pay for it. British Airways has become one of the worse airlines."
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Crew ok. Flight on time"
Cons: "All food and breuvages to purchase. Not even glas of water complimentary in economy."
Pros: "The crew as ever were excellent"
Cons: "Who ever took the decision to charge for food and drink but still charge BA fares must have been a Trump Supporter!"
Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane had some technical problems so they let us go inside the plane and we had to sit there for 3 hours while they were fixing licking gas situation. Flight was ok but we got food only once."
Cons: "No Food Left. No drinks"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Not enough carry on space this distortion made by less hold luggage"
Pros: "The flight was nice and short, the few was courteous and helpful. All as expected."
Cons: "This was really a bare-bone flight. They did serve a drink and peanuts, but it was a lunch time flight so one would expect at least some food. Heathrow was busy so went into a holding pattern which added time and some passengers became worried about their connections. Upon landing they mixed up baggage pickup and we had to wait a long time running between two conveyor belts looking for it."
Pros: "The staff on all flights were pleasant and very accommodating."
Pros: "The flight on BA was nice and service was good. The food was acceptable. I liked their entertainment - lots of good movies and other things to watch."
Cons: "The connection in London - just one hour - was absolutely not enough. It takes 15 minutes or so just to empty a large plane. Then, if you have to make a connection from one terminal to the other, as we did, you rush to a bus that drives you all the way across the airport. At that point you rush to find yourself faced with going through security yet again. All this made us miss our flight and turned what should have been a 10 hour trip into a 24 hour trip. That is British Airways fault for leaving so little time to connect. When you book your flights, be sure to have an hour and a half at the very least - preferably 2 hours."
Pros: "Short flight, no complaints. I liked that coffee was served with milk."
Cons: "No real complaints."
Pros: "Service was impeccable and perfectly timed. Food was good and quantity sufficient. Flight crew was friendly and had a lovely sense of humor and warmth. Movies made a long flight bearable."
Cons: "Old airplane, no movies at all- none- grumpy service, small seats that do not recline and no food on a 6.5 hour flight"
