Will advise not to travel in Qatar airways find another airlines avoid this Qatar airways
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
They can improve the food, specially dessert.
A quality of airline is determined on how they handle things when something goes wrong. My 1st flight was delayed by 5 hrs and I missed my connection. This was applicable to all connecting passengers on the flight. There was no communication on what was going on. It would have been helpful if somebody made an announcement that they are working on rebooking and asking us to be patient. There was a mad dash at the rebooking counter with almost 200 passengers crowding around 3 booking agents. There was no crowd management. The message I got from them was inconsistent as well. Just a total mess. When things go well, Qatar is a great airline, but when things don't go well... they absolutely suck. I had a 14 hour layover in Doha because of Qatar's fault and they did not provide hotel stay and I was business class passenger who payed top dollar for this shitty service.
Quality of food and urgency to diabetic passengers need to be taken care of seriously
Qatar airlines denied issue of any Boarding Pass to me at the Airport Check in counter, siting the reason that pre-booking of Covid Test appointment 'on arrival' at Kolkata Airport (CCU) was a mandatory requirement, even if I was not traveling from (or through) any of the 19 (nineteen) 'AT-RISK' countries notified by Govt.of India for the purpose of International Arrival. Moreover, Air-suvidha form of Govt of India which I had pre-filled with required documents, never asked me or redirected me to any Covid test pre-appointment site 'on arrival' by the international passenger. The QA executive at the Houston (Texas, USA) air-port check in counter informed me about this about this and said it has come from their internal memo. They even denied issuing me a copy or to take any photo of the same internal note. Though as per our understanding the same is not required as per Govt of India's latest guidelines in related to international passengers arriving in any of the Indian airports (including Kolkata). My subsequent telephonic call to Qatar Airways Customer Care centre also did not help. They only could inform me to send a mail using 'feedback' link in the Qatarairways official site and ensured that it would be replied within 12 hours. Even after making a complaint (through Feedback link in QA official website), I have not yet received any reply from them even after 4 days (besides an automated acknowldgement) of my complaint. In none of their earlier communication to me, neither Qatarairways nor by 'Kayak' / Indian Eagle, this requirement (even if it was mandatory) was ever been ever communicated to me. Suffered a huge loss due to this. Very much disappointed with the Qatar airways.
The check in process was long and could have been faster if more staff was available. The line of passengers was too long and there was no one to guide the line. The boarding process was a bit better. Although several announcements were made regarding mask wearing, it was not fully enforced on the flight. This left me feeling unsafe considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and flu season.
