Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The tv didn’t work throughout the whole flight. Very uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Pros: "Everything alright"

Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "Crew etc excellent"
Cons: "In flight WiFi expensive and not reliable"

Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I am taking Qatar on all international travels when possible."

Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."

Pros: "Good service from cabin crew"
Cons: "Seat is quite small compared to other flight"

Pros: "The crew was friendly"

Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"

Cons: "Me"

Pros: "Latam could not issue a boarding pass at Santiago. This led to long waiting at Brazilian immigration checkpoint. Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."

Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."
Cons: "When checking in, they were quite slow and they didn't seem like they wanted to be helpful. Some crew members were not as helpful as when we were going to Brazil, and even the way they communicated the rules was not always very nice, but not rude either."

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."

Pros: "On thiime.Good Meal. Professional flight crew."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Cons: "Third time on emirates but this time it was the worst. Even worse service, seats, and food. While my kids ordered the regular meal I had ordered the Low Sodium Meal because of my health. The meal that I got was saltier than the regular meal!"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it.

Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"

Cons: "There is no entertainment on this flight."

Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with.

Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."

Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."

Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"

Pros: "1. The crew was very friendly and polite. 2. The food was good. 3. Service was good."

Pros: "I love the food❤️"
Cons: "2 hours delayed"

The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."

Pros: "They allowed me to change my flight for free because I could not get a visa to Turkey. Thanks!"

Cons: "Unrelated to your direct service, but as the largest user of the Istanbul Ataturk airport, the airline should address the lack of insfrastructure and personnel to deal efffectively and timely with x.ray inspection for the immense passenger traffic in transit. The LONG lines (crowds is a better word), makes the connection in Istanbul completely unacceptable."

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"

Cons: "the delay in the departure"

Pros: "Boarding was on time, the crew was helpful."

Pros: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."

Pros: "excellent food, service"

Pros: "I found the physical environment very comfortable, clean , a young dynamic crew who were very attentive and helpful"

Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I Like the food and movies"

Cons: "the connection in Istanbul was short (around one hour), which created the following problem: the 1st flight had to wait 20-30 minutes for the landing permission, and this made us running and rushing to the connected flight. The landing permission was delayed not because of the weather conditions, but because of a long line of aircrafts that came to Ataturk airport at the same time. Therefore, it is kind of Turkish Airlines blame."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The Kate arrival at the final destination."

Pros: "Crew is very flexible and accomodating to individual needs Food is good compared to other airlines Entertainment is programme is good"
Cons: "Toilettes were a bit messy, already after 2 hours. The screen of the entertainment programme is too busy to find things"

Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."

Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Especially if there had no chance to eat dinner before the flight."

Cons: "Luggage was not received. Now being told it will take up to 5 days! Unacceptable performance"

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "Petiole are treated spending $1000 on a trip as poor with very uncomfortable seats and mediocre food"

Cons: "Lufthansa left us stranded in Dublin"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Stop overcharge people for 1 luggage :( very disappointed"

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "On time with good service."
Cons: "Food - barely edible as usual. Economy seats seem to be getting tighter and with little leg room."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and great movie selection. They also had books and games for kids."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better."

Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."

Cons: "Airbus was warm. There were no personal vents on the plan. Made for a very long and warm/hot flight. Other than that. The flight was good."

Pros: "Entertainment is good with literally hunreds of movies. Even the screens are fairly good."
Cons: "It's nice to have digital magazines now of Lufthansa flights, but I am not sure why there are hundreds of movies but only ONE magazine to chose from."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Packed flight. LH seats are narrow and the front porch is not extensible enough. Hard to place books and newspapers. Film selection so so."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Flight was good, comfort was good. Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa flights is getting worse and worse."

Pros: "timely take off. frequent food and snack serving"
Cons: "Prolonged stop over in Frankfurt"

Pros: "On time good entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were horrible"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and polite. The airplane was clean. The boarding was quick and easy. The entertainment was varied and enjoyable."
Cons: "It wasn't an issue on my flight since there were empty seats in my row, but I don't enjoy the spacing provided for personal items on the floor under the seat in front you. For four seats there are three sections; so, you can hope that someone doesn't need any space or else you have to decide how to awkwardly split it up."

Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"

Cons: "flight crew hit my chair all the time with the troller. Bought the places with bigger space on the legs, that was true, but was dissapointed with the type of chair that is totally closed at the sides, with no scape room for the legs laterally."

Cons: "We were in the middle at the very back of the plane. It was quite bouncy for some time during the flight. The stewardess informed us that that was typical for seats at the back of the plane. It is not easy to choose your seats when you buy the ticket online, but I would prefer a calmer location. Also I was squeezed when the person in front of me leaned back in her seat. Service was excellent, however."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Cons: "Cabin Crew does not pay much attention to customer need even in business class. They need to learn lot from KLM."

Pros: "Everyone are friends"

Pros: "Best trip and crew that i ever had"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like boarding with the two kids were a breeze they put us in the plane quickly and had no issues there."

Cons: "movie selection limited"

Pros: "Excellent service....very comfortable."

Pros: "The service, room and entertainment."
Cons: "Huge delays all day caused me to miss my last flight to Honolulu even thought I was supposed to have a 4+ hour layover from LAX. I had to book a room that wasn't paid for and take a flight 24 hours later. I literally arrived home with my family a whole day later than was supposed to happen based all on Lufthansa delays."

Pros: "The staffing was adequate, the service didn't take inordinate time!"

Pros: "Faster then any other airline. Supersonic jet ..."

Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great, entertainment system top in its class."

Pros: "Great food and nice to be offered wine with dinner and after dinner drink"
Cons: "Could not have been more uncomfortable on this long flight. I am a normal size/weight person who practices yoga and if I was miserable, I can't imagine others who are larger or not in great shape. Those seats are like being in solitary confinement...but with 200 other people. Ugh."

Pros: "Crew was great and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "They walked extra miles to confote customer all the service at any leavel was best without tension."

Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
