Did like Aircraft seats from Atlanta to Doha. Doha-Delhi and return from Doha - Atlanta Never thought a buss class is. Been thru Delta/Klm/Turkish Buss class. I would never go in Qatar air lines again

It was good, better than most

Good service

Everything was okay

great crew - very efficient. Food was restaurant quality and good choices. Large movie selection, but a little weak with the music, games seemed OK.

Good food, comfortable seating, excellent service, affordable air fares, professional/friendly crew. This was my first Qatar airways travel. Enjoyed the travel very much. I will choose Qatar airways for my future travel and recommend to my family and friends. Thank you for making my travel enjoyable.

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

It’s good, thanks for all team members

Really I can’t think of anything that could’ve been better. Thank you for an excellent trip

❤️❤️❤️

Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.

Seats weren’t clean. Screens need to wiped correctly.

Pros: "The attendants were great."
Cons: "The food on all 4 flights was ok. Could have been more interesting recipes and dessert. The seats on all flights were consistently hard and stiff. It was impossible to get a decent rest because of that as well as the areas being pretty cramped."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing for kids. First time i have seen that no toys for kids. No tv and entertaiment for adults"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing. The Seat were the best Selling point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for the arm rest ans legs space"
Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "All"
Pros: "The leg room was huge, the food was excellent and a lot and the customer service was great not my first time to fly with Qatar and it won’t be my last, the made my trip worthwhile. Thank you"
Cons: "No complaints so far so good"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted. Pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food The cabin temperature was close to freezing on the GOi-DOH international flight. No blankets provided when asked for blankets was told by the Indian air hostess on board the Qatar Airways flight that there is a shortage of blankets and they had to give children first Flight was at 3:50 am at this early tme pls provide blankets for all specially if it is freezing"
Pros: "New Dreamliner"
Cons: "No European movies in English at all, very disappointing for someone who is not into latest Hollywood ( silly) movies and doesn’t want to watch Bollywood or Chinese ones(( The “ dinner” food was barely edible, both from Singapore to Doha and from Copenhagen to Doha."

Pros: "Service, crew, food"

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."
Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."
Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."
Cons: "Seats on this flight are awful, wonder why they have these seats for long haul flights, not yet all comfortable to sleep on these , I got back pain by the time I got out of the plane."
Pros: "Not much except the on board crew are nice."
Cons: "The first flight from KTM the TV didn't work and I didn't fit into the seat. The most uncomfortable seat in a long time. The second flight from Doh to JFK was not good. I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."
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"

Cons: "Main food amount is small compared To other long range airlines. Did not offer coffee or Tea."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"

Pros: "its a five stars trip in its services"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Cons: "Engine problem. Everybody off of aircraft after sitting in it 3 hours!. No airline representitives inside airport to help. Slept in airport with various ppl from qatar popping up and giving untrue information"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Wheel chair was not available on arrival. Had to wait 45 minutes"
Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."
Cons: "Cheap headphones will not isolate sound from airplane engine for such an expensive entertainment"
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Food from SFO to Dubai can be better. Dubai to Ahmedabad food was very good

Excellent experience I would only fly with Emirates

It was nice

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. The food was excellent.the seats was comfortable."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was lengthy and totally unnecessary with the extra steps"
Pros: "Flight was nice and on time"
Cons: "No toothbrush toothpaste and eyes shades provided"
Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
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: "All"
Cons: "To be cabin in business class"
Pros: "Emirates is the best airline I have traveled with. The Dubai Lounge and general service is just outstanding"
Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"
Cons: "On the Boeing 777 series which I flew on, the seats are UNUSUALLY CRAMPED TOGETHER. I have flown for decades internationally: this was absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."
Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was old and tatty I booked a window seat to actually get the window seat with no window. I had just come off another Emirates flight but this was old tatty plane, the seating squashed. The plane was delayed on the runway for around 40 mins but no announcement made, the stewards were unresponsive when people pressed the buzzer."
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
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: "Dinner was good, breakfast a bit ordinary"
Cons: "business class seats didn’t go flat/horizontal, which wasn’t great for a night flight. Would be good to have a fast track through customs... took about 30-40 minutes"
Pros: "Good selection of food"
Cons: "Having to listen to everything in both English and Arabic"
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"
Pros: "Love the A380 - the sheer size of it allowed for more personal space. Consequently, it was a much more comfortable flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was comprehensive. I also liked the number of options for the complimentary beverages."
Cons: "The economy seats are not as comfortable as advertised. The breakfast was good, but the chicken dinner was bland."
Cons: "Delayed and no hotel for an 11 hour layover"
Cons: "Food. And also seats. We r silver class and should have been assigned better seats."
Cons: "I could not pick my seat in advance. It wasn’t clear while booking that this was the case with emirates. I could only pick my seat when online check in was allowed."
Pros: "Service on time nice attendants clean plane modern"
Pros: "Nice airplane"
Cons: "Snub crews"
Cons: "Emirates flight took me and my mom to Milan(Italy) on issued Dubai Boarding pass."
Pros: "The in-flight service of Emirates Airlines is superb and Flight Attendants as helpful, courteous and diligent in their duties. I highly admire their professionalism and client service."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
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: "Lots of movie options"
Pros: "Easy, comfortable, no issues!"
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Cons: "Really small space. Airport crew was dismal. Boarding was more disorganized than in a poor African country and boarding is easy, I really don't understand"
Pros: "Great airline, very friendly staff, the food was pretty good considering that it's airplane food.The ICE entertainment system was great, lots of movies/TV shows to watch on the flight."
Cons: "Only negative part is that we sat right by where they stored and prepared the food so it was noisy at times."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."
Pros: "Good flight with decent amenities Entertainment can be better. Food quality is going down byt still better than most"
Pros: "good food, empty seats for snoozing and very helpful flight crew."
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
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: "Free meal. Free drinks. Not packed so it was comfortable. Great accomodating staff, they were definately amazing even in economy. Power at every seat to charge devices a great list of movies shows etc... food was great tasting and good portion. I enjoyed this flight more than american, delta or any of the big name companies. They should strive to be this good."
Cons: "Check in an hour early!"
Pros: "Very few passengers on the plane allowing to use more space than normal"
Cons: "Shaking air over India for multiple hours which wasn't too pleasant but not the fault of the airline"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised how great our travel with Emirates was. We usually fly in business class when traveling to Europe, but this time we were pleasantly surprise that the economy on our flight was as good as business on most American airlines. We are looking forward to another flight with Emirates!"
Cons: "Everything was great, I can't think of one thing that disappointed me."
Cons: "Inflight Entertainment System completely dead. Was offered a piece of chocolate from biz class. Haha."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
