Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option.

One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Pros: "Service and crue was good"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get.

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "The food was good. The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: ".If the seats recline to just a little bit more"
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: "Scrambled eggs breakfast was more like a mousse and had no texture"
Pros: "The comfort, crew and entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding."
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?"

Pros: "Everything about it"
Cons: "Airplane to late"
Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I would like better quality in food"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment was great! Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "The cuatomer service at checkin was rude and the gate staff in dubai was also very rude i will never fly with them again."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "Some snacks between the food service"
Pros: "Food and beverage choices were excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was delayed a lot and not properly handled. I was in Business class, still there was no information about what would happen when. Onboard, the TV (ICE) and internet were struggling to keep up with user demand. Did not load or connect sometimes. Different crew members had same standard answer - try later. While sleeping in Business class, I was woken up twice by a rude crew member (Velma Ndubi). She even refused to tell me her name because she did not want me to complain. Her attitude ruined the flight for me."
Pros: "Great service! While first time, I had a great experience."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "I am pleased to travel and thanks to Emirates."
Cons: "seats are way too narrow for such a long trip."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Pros: "Overall very good"
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."
Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"
Pros: "The cabin crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The roomy seat and extra leg room are very nice. Very friendly crew, they made travelling with children a lot easier. Like them."

Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Pros: "The entire service was amazing from the flight attendants to the food, very amazing!"
Cons: "Everything was awesome!"
Pros: "Attentive service, had a special treat for me as it was my birthday."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Pros: "The team was fantastic. Always willing to help."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the announcements were not made to keep us informed. There was some chaos involved once the gates were open. This has to be addressed."
Cons: "My bag never made it with me into DMM. Even though it was a single non-stop flight, my bag didn't make into Dammam with me!! I don't know what might be the reason!!"
