At Doha all staff is very helpful

Read more about Qatar Airways

At Doha all staff is very helpful

Departure gate is left overcrowded & creates a tense environment awaiting boarding. B777 business configuration or pig pens as I refer to them is clumsy, hard to access if you are large, claustrophobic & reverse facing in the alternative. If you are unlucky as we were to draw aisle 14 and reverse facing on both legs going over and returning then preferred meal choices are exhausted by time crew get to u & movie entertainment choice was exactly identical despite flights being 7 weeks apart. Crew abandoned us literally on return home leg when clear we weren’t happy. Won’t fly Qatar again if they continue using B777

Will travel again

Liked everything

Ok

The best, Qatar Airways is incompatible

It was bad experience i has booking on business class Bombay to doha but they changed airline equipment and had to fly on couch. They promised to get me voucher at get but no voucher or any email Please call me to resolve this problem. Shilu patel 281 948 1724

I liked the Crew . The food was terrible .I was starving. I couldn't eat the food.

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite.

I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."

Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Service was excellent with very polite staff."
Cons: "Front seat anchors were right in the middle of the leg space in 777 which is kind of dumb for Boeing guys."
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Pros: "The Crew The food"
Cons: "Transiting. Made to stay in the airport for over 8hours after a 9hr 35mins flight. I was not happy about it. I hope that, on the return journey, when transiting time would be over 10hours, i would be lodged in a hotel. Thank you."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight on time."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food is terrible.. why can't they offer sandwiches or bread and butter for people who don't eat Asian food"
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: "Solid movie selection, good food"
Cons: "You have to go through security again at the Qatar Airlines gate, which takes extra time"
Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."
Cons: "The new diagonal seats are good, except when trying to put my feet up. The raised foot area is very cramped, and for me sleeping wasn't possible. I left my feet on the floor."
Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
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: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Frankly nothing!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal and they didn't have one for me. The breakfast was terrible. Green beans and strawberry yoghurt!?"
Cons: "Chairs very stiff, tight smpace"

There were no distinct ques for boarding, everyone stood and waited for their group to be called and you couldn't get through crowd standing to go to boarding.

At 35000 ft from the ground its pretty darn good. Excellent experience overall and with internet facility you stay connected as well. Not sure what more people are expecting. Unless its teleporting, would be hard doing better than this experince by Emirates.

Would definitely fly with them again!! Everyone and everything was great!!

Flight was okay. Flight was fully packed and crew service was slow

Cons: "Providing hotel for connecting flights"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, and food was amazing"
Cons: "Some of the fixtures were falling off, and the side controller for the TV screen was not connected or working. It is to be expected from an Older A 380, but not a deal breaker by any means"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "My judgement will be unfair cause I love Emirates airlines"
Pros: "Good performance of ground staff in kabul"
Cons: "On time flight not delay"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was good. Seat wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Price should be a little less, comparable to that of Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Cons: "So many people were ill near me and the 14 hours of journey was crazy with such curcumstances around you.Those people should not have allowed to board"
Pros: "Seats weren’t all that comfortable."
Cons: "Service and meals were good."
Cons: "Delayed my luggage. Still waiting for Emirates to call me after 2 days"
Pros: ":("
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."
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Worried that I wouldn’t have enough on my iPad to watch, didn’t even get my iPad out of my bag so much good stuff to watch even on a 14 hour flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Not a vegan option for dinner. But the veg option was ok just some stuff I could eat."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I always love traveli ng eith Emirates. Great service. They are punctual. Good entertainment system. Comfortable flights and service overall."
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade."
Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."
Cons: "My 1 Bag was open. Lost few items. Not satisfied the luggage was handled by the crew. Overall Dissatisfied due to Bag was received in open condition. @ Amdavad Airport found issue by Crew but didn't take good care of it."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I love God Father Trilogy. And Emirates has all of it !! Just amazing. And there are also another series like Marvel & Fast/Furious etc. I want actor series like the movies that DiCaprio starrs."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the service and customer care the airlines displayed."
Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"
Pros: "Entertainment and drinks."
Cons: "My suitcase wasn't delayed by a day, despite having a 16 hour lay over and came damaged! Noone from emirates is responding to my emails!"
Pros: "We were able to switch seats to get more space -- especially leg room"
Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse - despite it being a 14 hour flight!!"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
Pros: "The AirBus A380 plane is amazing! Really great movie options too - almost too much choice."
Cons: "They randomly chose us to conduct a carryon bag search, which is fine. But they also randomly chose 100 other passengers and there wasn't enough information or staff to do this random check efficiently. Hence, we were more than an hour delayed."
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Cons: "Fantastic customer service and attentive staff"
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, comfortable flight and excellent service."
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great service and staff."
Pros: "Emirates is easily the beeeest airline out there. Their economy beats almost every other airline, and their rewards system is fantastic (truly rewarding -- I get free flights all the time for being a Skywards Silver member). The food is so much better than other airlines too. I ordered a vegan meal and their vegan meals over the past 6 years went from absolutely awful to incredibly delicious and gourmet. Their entertainment system is also the best Ive seen across all airlines. They have movies that are literally still in theaters, as well as old classics, comedies, horrors, tv shows, world movies in every language, audiobooks, meditation guides and more. The crew is totally accommodating. Happy to keep flying on Emirates for every flight !"
Cons: "I haaaate that there are no footrests. It literally makes the biggest difference. These flights are always so long and its impossible to sleep unless you have three or so seats in a row to yourself."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."
Cons: "the baby crying next to us crying thrugh much of the flight. We're still exhausted from not being able to sleep well during the flight."
Pros: "Great service and staff, best food I've had on an airline, great legroom in economy. Overall awesome, in my opinion."
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"
Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"
