Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No comments."
Cons: "No comments."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Cons: "At CKG, mobile boarding passes for international are not accepted by the security screening authority, which says only boarding passes printed at the counter are acceptable. The QR counter opens approximately 3.5~4 hours ahead of the departure of the airlines only flight from CKG."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"

Cons: "More refreshments"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful for everything"

Pros: "Qsuite is the best flight experience I've ever had by a long, long way."

Pros: "The airplane and clean"
Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"

Pros: "exellent in everything"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Excellent on board staff"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Poor choice of entertainment."

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Pros: "The leg space the reclining chair the personal tv the head rest The food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good movies, Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food could be better."

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. Food was less than mediocre."

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: "Great flight with good food and crew."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"

Cons: "Flight was delayed materially with little forewarning Service was poor"

Pros: "Airport staff."
Cons: "4 hour flight wolith no entertainment system and old aircraft was a huge drop I am frequent Qatar airways customer, and this flight was the worst"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."

Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"

Pros: "Cabin cleanliness including restrooms, excellent food selections comfortable seats including head support and friendly professional attendants."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Cons: "Online check-in process. Boarding pass not available to be added to wallet. Unable to view; had to have the boarding pass emailed to me. No option to set up SMS tracking foe flight status."

Cons: "changed 2 times the departure time and I lost my train to Rapallo, having to sleep in Genova. Had to buy other ticket to Milan and loose this ticket I had bought.,..."

Cons: "All good but crew wasn't very attentive - for example i had had to put my suitcase quite a few rows back because of lack of space at the end of the flight i had to wait for most of the plane to empty out in order to be able to retrieve it - the crew member who had originally indicated i put my suitcase further back and who was standing right by the cabin where the suitcase was stored saw all of this but didn't move to help in the slightest even though he knew i was waiting for a chance to get to my suitcase - in my experience of customer service i would have gotten it for the passenger and brought it to them to reduce the wait time"

Pros: "Crews are nice n snacks are okay."
Cons: "Their online luggage fee sucks. I had to pay again at the counter when my online purchases didn’t show up on their computer. Ended up paying a higher luggage fee at the counter. Not good!"

Cons: "More variety of movies"

Pros: "Flight was smooth"

Cons: "The seats aren’t comfortable, the entertainment system is finicky, not much leg room."

Cons: "As so often with Alitalia the flight was delayed by 1 hr 20 mins"

Cons: "they must work on quality and price"

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "for sure the seats, the screens and bathrooms. the plane was so old!"

Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 hour waiting for a crew member to show up. This caused me to miss my flight to the US at DeGaulle"

Cons: "It was delayed by 4 hours"

Pros: "We traveled the same way back but with Air France instead, which was a joy. This aircraft was uncomfortable"

Pros: "good onboard service"
Cons: "the business class wasnt really so good to my expectation."

Pros: "Cheap fares and direct flight"
Cons: "Entertainment very poor. Would recommend a kruger selection of movies and preferably to be available to watch once we are on the plane waiting for take off. Economy class space limited ."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Too short time between the flights, almost lose the connecting flight."

Cons: "Initial flight from London to Rome left late, so missed connecting flight to Johannesburg. Although we were put up in a hotel and got a flight next day, missed another connecting flight, which was with another flight company and had to pay again to get another flight. No apology from the airline for the inconvenience this caused. The travel to South Africa was for an emergency and ended up getting there two days later."

Pros: "The fact that I had more legroom than I expected was surprising."
Cons: "The staff were super rude, forgot my food TWICE. Boarding took ages, and once inside the plane, they took a long time to get on the runway. Food was terrible, the bread was hard as rock. IFE has some relatively new films, but the screen is very small. The screen has terrible quality, and honestly makes the flight excruciatingly boring if you don’t have other sources of entertainment."

Cons: "Alitalia and SkyTeam still can't figure out how to check luggage through on separately ticketed flights, even if both flights are the same airline."

Pros: "Ok ok."
Cons: "Our bag out of luggage was missing and more than 24 hours there was no action. We were left helpless as due to Easter everything was closed and could not arrange any alternative."

Pros: "Being able to chose my seats for free with the Millemiglia programme. The legroom was not bad."
Cons: "No hot drinks or food available to purchase inflight. The toilets were dirty and smelly."

Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being able to purchase any food, wine or hot drinks on board. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."

Pros: "legroom, service, boarding, meals"

Pros: "They had drinks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats too cramped and close to facing seats."

Cons: "SHOULD HAVE BEEN WARNED THAT THE IMMIGRATION TOOK LONGER THAN EXPECTED BECAUSE OF THE QUEUE."

Pros: "KLM Flying Blue App ( which I didn't get to use because they switch to Alitalia at check in)"
Cons: "KLM switched to Alitalia right at online check in time, which made things very confusing. Even the flight number changed. It would have helped if KLM would have let customers know this in advance."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Had problem with luggage, did not like food specifically cheese on dark bread sandwich, did not like going to gate but would need to climb stairs and get shuttle to plane"

Pros: "I had not flown overseas in so long that I had forgotten how nice flying could be. The flight attendants were especially attentive and helpful. Not only did we get a "free" meal, but it included white or red wine if desired. I felt like I was experiencing what flying used to be like in an earlier time."

Cons: "Read above."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and smooth"
Cons: "Food was substandard Leg space very crummy"

Cons: "One of the entertainment systems was in disrepair. The headphone jack was jammed and the USB charge port was broken."

Pros: "Entertainment choices, boarding efficiency, helpful staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure - then even more delayed arrival - stuck on tarmac. First row of extra leg seats are extra narrow to account for entertainment system."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You lost my luggage!!!!!! Now I'm standing in a long line with other lost luggage people. Düsseldorf is not a large airport and there was ample connection time. Not the way I wanted to start my vacation. Instead of driving south now I'll be waiting at the airport all day On the flight the seat in front of me folded back all the way to my head! How does that happen?"

Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived 35 minutes early. The flight crew was very helpful onboard."
Cons: "Tried to upgrade my elderly parents to more comfortable seats when checking in, but was told the flight was full and there were none available. It didn't appear that way after being boarded and seated."

Pros: "Not too much. Standard flight. They had ok wine I guess."
Cons: "Ancient planes. Had to use proprietary headphones, I thought they stopped doing that. No USB. Screens seemed 20 years old. It's 2017!"

Pros: "More leg space."
Cons: "No tv screen"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "No food served. No coffee. Just coca cola and water."

Cons: "staff was nice, lost my luggage, and it was 8 hours late, i paid 2x to leave earlier, and got in later than the cheapest flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late! connections no good! no information about flight changes!"

Cons: "Alitalia is a Bullshit company, we were late to our connection because of the air line, they told us the next flight is waiting for us, but they didn't... We got tickets to the next flight with no compensation and they lost our snowboard case."

Pros: "The service was very good."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Paid for upgrade comfort seats. Did not get them on the outbound flight ROM-TLV. They could not explain why we did get the seats and have not paid back the 80€ for the 2 seats. Had to fight for the comfort seats TLV-ROM. DO NOT LIKE ALITALIA!"

Pros: "The food was very good and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was an hour before take off."

Cons: "The boarding was chaos in both Munich and Rome. Apparently Al Italia had instituted a new computer system and the workers did not know how to use it. I spent hours on line getting a boarding pass in Munich, and then again another in Rome (in Munich no one was given boarding passes for connecting flights). I spend hours again in lines to get a boarding pass for a flight to Palermo, missing my connection and only getting a much later flight to Palermo. It was utter confusion. Shame on Al Italia."

Cons: "My wife and I were slightly late to our return flight to Boston. When we arrived we were told that we would not be able to board because of our need to check a bag. We have the same bag that we have flown all over the world without the need for checking. Seems like it would be wise to indicate that Alitalia does not follow industry standard for checked bags when purchasing ticket. We were forced to purchase entirely new tickets for our flight back home, this is an unacceptable business practice. The up charge on the late purchased ticket was outrageous and we were sat next to the toilets which was disgusting!! I would appreciate a phone call from a representative of Kayak or Alitalia to discuss. Thanks Jeffrey Baker 207 739 9487"

Pros: "After shuffling me between terminals, a flight attendant finally recognized I was injured and was going to miss my flight. She stepped up and got the assistance I needed."
Cons: "Check in clarification."

Pros: "The flight was short and on time. Overall the flight was okay."
Cons: "I was disappointed, because my luggage did not arrive at my destination."

Pros: "Good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Meals were small and below average."

Pros: "plane is relatively new crew were ok"
Cons: "impossible to accommodate for a kosher meal even though I have tried 48h before the flight. the ground team were rude the crew were ok but nothing more"
