Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"

Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."

Pros: "crew was amazing.. seat are comfortable"
Cons: "if the food includes children meal ."

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

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

Pros: "Phenomenal sericve Left my earbuds on the plane ther were returned before my next connection"
Cons: "Service service The q suite the airport and more service"

Pros: "The Service is always great, entertainment system is great and the food is even good."
Cons: "I liked everything!"

Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."

Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was normal flight"
Cons: "I have a layover for 12 hrs and Qatar Airways didn't offer me a hotel."

Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."

Pros: "Friendly service, and comfortable ride, will gladly fly again"

Pros: "Great Cabin Crew, the pilot was extremely talented and landed very well at a low speed so as to not wake everyone in Nagpur up."
Cons: "seats are a bit tight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Over all great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cramped"

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "Quick boarding, semi- spacious seats, decent snack food"
Cons: "Not much to dislike, but I still will NEVER fly Qatar again."

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."

Cons: "Food choices could be better."

Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."

Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"

Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"

Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."

Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Pros: "Great Crew, seat space was great too"
Cons: "The cabin sound proofing can be improved. Especially the clicity clack from passengers eating. The pre boarding space was very limited."

Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."

Pros: "Excellent aiways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Pros: "I like it."
Cons: "No problem"

Pros: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Economy seats were too close to others. Entertainment displays on 777 planes didn't react well to touch. Too many large roller bags allowed on plane. Arm rests on A330 and 777 wouldn't go all the way up."

Pros: "Excellent!"

Pros: "The attendants were very courteous"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rudeness of check in staff Disorganized, slow and chaotic screening process for transfer passengers (only two machines for thousands hundred passenger) Near- or semi-illiterate ground staff"

Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I think in plain should serve international food not only Indian spicy one. may some do not like spicy"

Pros: "The plane, the flight crew and food was excellent."
Cons: "I choose to fly Qatar Airway on the recommendation of a a friend who told us that lay over of more than 8 hours in Doha would be provided a hotel room to relax and reenergize. My lay over was 12.5 hours and no such accommodations were provided. Trying to take nap in noisy sleeping room was unbearable. I am not sure if this was due to the ticketing agent at Philadelphia gave us the yellow short transfer ticket holder instead of the green long transfer ticket holder. Our luggage had the green long transfer holder on them. Next time I may be flying a different airway to get to my destination sooner even-though the flight crew and the food was excellent on Qatar Airway. I would not recommend my friends to fly Qatar airway if they had the same experience I had at Doha airport because they would kill me when when they see me next time"

Cons: "Asked for water 15 mins before landing and never received it"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Emirates provides good seating even in economy class,with good entertainment so makes the 8hr flt more pleasant."

Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"

Pros: "Attendants and aircraft comfort was excellent"

Cons: "Luggage claim in chennai airport is horrible"

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."

Pros: "The overall trip was amazing"
Cons: "N/A"

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: "The pre-boarding, courtesy extended, everything was good. No complaints."
Cons: "The long hop because of my age"

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: "Staff is very good. Always smile on face."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I like it"

Cons: "Request to allot passage seat on 30th Nov"

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 crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"

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"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Boarding announcements somewhat vague - not repeated often enough"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "Attentive staff"

Cons: "Can you enforce the team NOT to throw the luggage to keep on the belt(s) as you guys don't have to."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "It was too cold and the blanket was too light"

Pros: "Space and cleanness"

Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"

Cons: "Tough to get a drink"

Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."
