Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Plane quite empty so lots of space."
Cons: "Service not very attentive, had to repeatedly ask."
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Quality of food could be better Hindu meal was not as good as expected"
Cons: "Check-in for ticket took 2 hours!"
Pros: "Short 4 hour flight, full - not one open seat Yet, the crew was super nice and efficient."
Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."
Pros: "On line flight experience"
Cons: "The food has to improve especially they have to provide fresh food"
Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."
Pros: "Smooth flying regardless of the air wake turbulence, excellent treatment from flight attendants. I felt safe during the flight."
Cons: "Give more time for checking in the luggage, Cancelation my flight with 0% reimbursed on my funds, on boarding time 10 minutes delay was truly unfair."
Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."
Pros: "The crew were nice and very helpful. Vegeterian meal was great"
Cons: "It was cold almost for everyone and everyone used blanket, some people asked for second blanket."
Cons: "Cramped and full flight with no entertainment. Stewardesses were also talkin too much among themselves."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to kisumu"
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "- the baggage drop off counter guy was rude, so was his supervisor, they forced us to check our carry-on luggage and made it as they're doing us a favor for not checking our backpacks - there was a problem with the flight and got delayed 90 min, we missed our connecting flight and had to stay in DOH airport overnight - the food was really bad compared to other flights by QA, my wife got food poisoning from their food"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Plane, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Coach class is not for long haul flights"
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."
Cons: "Extra hour that takes to do this flight because we have to fly around Saudi Arabia....."
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional. There was a air host by the name of Zaid or Zain and he was from Bombay. Really nice person and very easy to talk to."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "Great food, and excellent choice of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "I like Qatar Airways very much. Ground and air personnel are all professional and courteous. I will fly Qatar every time I can."
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Pros: "Service was excellent and food was all right. I do not eat meat or dairy but there was still some food for me on this flight."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is always impressing"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "The entire Qatar crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Requested isle seat from DOHA to Houston but was issued middle seat."
Pros: "free good"
Pros: "Great crew members.. Very helpful"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow... Just one person Also lost 1 bag from Dallas to Delhi"
Pros: "Very good connection, big entertainment selection."
Cons: "The crew and the service wasn't the best. A bit slow, and unfriendly. Not what I expected! It's been very cold."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "the crew on the flight were simply amazing! Kind, caring, 5*"
Cons: "There was questionable social distancing at check-in and most definitely none from the arrival at the departure gate to using the suttles to get to the plane and boarding. While I appreciate the ever-evolving challenges the current global situation are brining, this was a failure on your behalf. Istanbul international airport = disappointment and a letdown."
Cons: "I would have expected in business class not to have to literally climb over other passengers to get out of my seat. The diagram I had looked at before picking a seat made it look like that would not be a problem but when others are laying flat there is no other choice but to climb over hoping not to fall over them or wake them up"
Cons: "Their app wouldn't let me pay for a checked bag early so I was charged almost double the cost!"
Pros: "All was good and on time"
Cons: "Just be good, they could still offer free drinks or water to passengers"
Pros: "Direct boarding from business class lounge!"
Pros: "Friendly staff that helped me change seat after I landed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Food is bad. Did not like it one bit. Entertainment too limited, expected more from BA (particularly in the music area). Feels more.like a budget airline! Maybe London airport problem, but both flights from London (at the start of holiday and at the end) were delayed. Nearly missed my connecting flight to NZ. Overall: Resent experience with BA and London Heathrow airport was to the extend that my future travel won't be with BA nor through London airport."
Cons: "Staff and crew were courteous and helpful. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Was an older plan but ok. No plugs at seats."
Pros: "Roomy for the economy seats"
Pros: "The movie selection was wonderful, as the amount of time with dim lightening"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane. It was too cold for summer clothing"
Cons: "Food quality poor.They served lunch after 7 hours of breakfast.The Food quality also not good."
Pros: "Crew did their best while sweating with the passengers especially prior to take off"
Pros: "It was a short flight so we only got drinks"
Cons: "Short flight so par for the course"
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "They upgraded me to business class"
Pros: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Cons: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE LAST MINUTE, I WAS STRANDED IN LONDON AND HAD NO COMPENSATION"
Pros: "British Airways service is unflaggingly polite and professional."
Cons: "I was charged two bob (2 pounds) for a cup of very poor coffee. No airline in my life ever made me pay for a cup of coffee."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and boarding was quick... the flight landed esrly"
Cons: "The food choice was limited not many snacks and chocolate"
Pros: "Flew BA to India. The flight was really nice. Crew was very helpful and friendly. Food was quite good. Solid selection of entertainment. All in all, one of the best trips to India."
Cons: "The only negative was that the plane was an older plane. Thus, some of the features found in newer planes were lacking. For example, the video screens were lower resolution than other flights. These were all minor issues that really didn’t impact the overall experience."
Pros: "Everything was fine, food was better than expected, on time"
Cons: "This was a connecting flight and they should allow extra time when changing terminals. 2 hours was BARELY enough with 2 20 minute bus rides and a huge line at security, to top it off, 1/4 mile of moving walkway was shut down for no apparent reason. These are Heathrow issues, not really BA issues."
Pros: "The kindness of the service people."
Pros: "In flight entertainment and meals were great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Very crowded and difficult to move. Also, would have liked more water service - had to go ask for water a few times since service was not offered regularly."
Pros: "Timely and good crew."
Cons: "No jetways in Frankfurt. Had to board using stairs."
Cons: "The seats were way too close. I even paid for an upgrade. My legs were get cramped and the width of the seats were awful!"
Pros: "Loved the wide selection of movies to watch, as well as being served two meals."
Cons: "I wished the seats reclined more. The flight would have been near perfect then!"
Cons: "Took hand luggage at gate and waited an hour to get it at baggage claim"
Pros: "Plenty of choice on the inflight video. Paid extra for better seats, which allowed for some sleep during the overnight flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor weather at Heathrow, nothing can be done about that, but it meant that we did not take off until after 22:00. Drinks were served almost immediately but it was close to 23:30 before a meal was served and 00:30 before this was cleared away. Lights were then dimmed but at 05:00 breakfast was served. A cottage cheese bagel was the last thing I wanted to see and when we asked for some water, we were told that there was none available. We landed at 06:25 but then had to sit on the tarmac for 15-20 minutes as there were no vacant gates for us. (This had the effect of increasing the parking fee for the driver waiting to pick us up, as he was not aware that we were sitting on the tarmac). Please note all times are New Orleans times. Hence actual time of landing was 12:25 BST. And talking of New Orleans, I would not class this as an International Airport. It is dilapidated, inefficient and lacking facilities."
Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Not much space. Seats were too narow."
Pros: "Flight attendants and service excellent."
Cons: "Hot meals were good but pizza roll was so bad. Might as well not give anything."
Pros: "The A380 is quiet and is less suceptible to turbulence than smaller planes. Climate was comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are close together and there wasn't enough legroom for me, I'm 6'2". The seat pockets are a. It small and it was hard to fit my iPad Pro."
Cons: "for the price I paid the service did not offer complimentary food or even water or soda."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I spent e hours in the airport getting rebooked, shuffled, finding my checked luggage, and being treated like an inconvience. I will never fly British Air again."
Pros: "Efficient at boarding gate all electronically monitored, photo recognition boarding a little confusing but help was on hand."
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay for something as basic as tea and coffee!!! Very disappointed in BA, their standards have dropped, not sure if I will continue to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Great Crew, smooth operation. Efficient service."
Cons: "I will suggest a use charger on the plane"
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "You need to pay for drinks and snacks - feels like low cost airline."
Cons: "After boarding and one hour on plane in 90 degrees heat. Passengers had to leave plane with big anxiety and unsure of what was happening"
Pros: "Everything was great and I truly enjoyed this flight."
Pros: "Quick and painless"
Cons: "very crowdy with suitcases on the board"
Pros: "Good foods for common standards and booked class, Friendly crew, well organized boarding and check-in process in Heathrow"
Cons: "Old plane, with old entertainment equipment, long wait on ground in Phoenix, only one immigration officer for a 747 passenger count, not in the hand of the airline but downside on the flight, passing immigration after an 1h luggage still was not delivered to the belt, this airport needs to learn about dealing with international flights (Rating F)"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The staff is always friendly and working at it to make everyone feel welcome and happy. Thanks for the great effort! we do appreciate it."
Cons: "Peppers in the food does not make the food taste nicer, it just adds a flavor that i think does not add great value for airport food. It is the same with raw onions. Once in a container everything tastes like the onions. This has been done away with and my personal opinion is that the same should be done to the peppers. When peppers are added to food, you only taste the peppers and not the rest of the flavors of the food. Hope you find this helpful. Thanks"
Pros: "Everything was on time. The plane was kind of full but the flight attendants really tried to reseat passengers that wanted to change their seats. To me, that's above and beyond, being in the service industry myself. The entertainment was really diverse and offered many options. The food was good and the red wine was excellent. The pilot gave us regular updates about the flight and the weather in Barcelona, our destination. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Restrooms were very clean."
Cons: "Old screens and limited entertainment Some delays"
Cons: "very poor food and seats were particularly tight"
