Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "Seats were ok but they often were out of vege options"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade to business class but the process was problematic— had to be done at transfer desk not at gate — after i had been thru security ☹️ Discouraged ne from trying"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."

Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive especially effective helping a mother with a spoilt screaming child!"
Cons: "The food was very mediocre!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "WC size (too small) and location ( way too close to flight staff and food section)"

Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Wish there were a bit more movie selections but only because it was such a long flight"

Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Cons: "Food was awful and two out of four family members have been sick. One on each flight"

Pros: "All of it was great!"

Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Overall"

Pros: "Very nice. Everything was great."

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."

Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."

Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Pros: "Great airline with spanking new plans and top of the line service"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Cons: "The delay from Bahrain to Doha. We delayed around 30 min. On the plane before take off."

Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."
Cons: "Not much to complain about, this airlines is consistently ranked above others in surveys. From my first time flying aboard Qatar, I was not unsatisfied."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Pros: "I miss the flight beacous of the gate agent the don't now what the doing I was coming from Washington to Dubai I just need to transfer my bags to this flight and the say ohh we canot do that it was unprofessional people I'm sorry so I book another flight from Dubai to Baghdad"

Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Cons: "My bag was overweight so o checked online and it said that the charge would be $50, but when i got to the airport in Dubai the charge was $75 with no explanation about thr difference. When we arrived in LA we set on the tarmac foe about 45mins waiting for an open gate. Wasnt the best experience"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Elderly and people with kids were asked to line up. After lining up, they did not let us to board the plane for 30 mins. We were standing in line with kids for 30 minutes. Last minute gate change. Had to drag the kids @ 3:30 AM from one terminal to other. Flight attendants were not in a good mood. Not even one smiled."

Cons: "My parents came from India to U.S. They had wheelchair, but they didn't get it and they have knee problem they don't know English too. So I had very bad experience with Qatar."

Pros: "Economy seats comfortable, wonderful entertainment, current movies, great food, price very competitive and partners with two American Airlines for frequent flyer miles"
Cons: "Nothing"
