Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."

Pros: "From Doha to lax my assigned seat was 20K and some Isidore changed it before I arrived to Doha. Then I called in to get another window seat and likely got 29K. When entering the aircraft another moron changed to to 38E. I’m so definitely getting my refund for this customer service/ flight !"

Pros: "Excellent Service and most friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. But the food taste can be better"

Pros: "Qatar beats every US based airline, hands down! The planes are clean and modern with better seats, leg room, technology, food and staff. Everything is included in the cost of a ticket, something that US airlines should learn! I cannot say enough about the experience and wood recommend to anyone traveling to destinations served by this airline."
Cons: "I cannot think of a single thing."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"

Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"

Pros: "Good leg space, friendly crew, excellent plane."
Cons: "This is for ALL airlines: It takes so long to get off the plane!"

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."

Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"

Pros: "Plane was clean and modern. Staff was very courteous. An overall pleasant flight."

Pros: "All would have been good if there was no animal inside a 14hr long flight. Dog allowed to use restroom that passengers uses and it was a BIG dog in a controlled environment for a 14 hour long flight. Hugely disappointed with the pet policy of Qatar airways, especially for all the parents traveling with kids."
Cons: "HUGE DOG INSIDE A 14 HR FLIGHT FROM QATAR TO CHICAGO DISAPPOINTED WITH QATAR AIRWAYS PET POLICY"

Pros: "Excellent crew and plane. Not very crowded."

Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides."

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."

Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

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: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"

Pros: "The plane was wel kept and crew was very pleasant. Food was good and service was best I have had in economy class."
Cons: "Only complaint is crew would wake you for very frequent snacks and meals . Minor deal. Crew was great"

Cons: "A little crowded but still great service."

Pros: "Crew Service"
Cons: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Cons: "Other passengers pushing, coughing & sneezing without proper sanitary measures; dirty toilets. This reflects on the education level of passengers, not the crew, but it still makes flying into Jeddah on packed flights particularly miserable."

Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."

Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
