Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
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"
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
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: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "its a five stars trip in its services"
Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Pros: "Solid movie selection, good food"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Cons: "Food and behaviour of hostess serving in our line I.e. Seat 34 b & 34c"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"
Pros: "Tv not working,seating not comfortable"
Cons: "Face wipes was needed"
Cons: "No entertainment at all even in business class"
Cons: "The food and in flight entertainment needs improvement."
Cons: "The remote was not working to use the TV at seat number 43E. We asked the crew staff to check but he never came back. Another thing is Baggage. It has been almost 45 minutes now but our luggage is not on the belt as well as a lot of other passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by up to 8 hours. Apparently, this was not a one-off - Air India flights from IAD to DEL have historically had delays of 3+ pretty much every day."
Pros: "5 hours delay in New Delhi"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"
Cons: "Leg room was poor. All the aisle and window seats were being sold at extra rates. Entertainment system was pre-historic with very limited choices. Food was bland and nothing appealing. The staff, for most part was invisible. They appeared during the serving of the meals and then vanished."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food! We left in time and arrived early!"
Cons: "Chair backs leaned way back making it hard for the person behind. Touch screens and options on chairback screens dodn’t work great."
Pros: "Schedule Convenience"
Cons: "My seat would NOT recline. For a 15 hour flight with non-reclining seat was painfull. I complained to the crew member and he just passed it to someone who never came and checked. When I inquired again, he told me that it was a mechanical issue with the seat and they other with same issue. He said sorry, it will be repaired once on ground. Mu back is hurting after one full day of rest at home. Just they don't have any courtesy or customer satisfaction mind set. This is why they are loss making airlines. Next time will take another airlines."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Delayed!!! We had to travel onwards to Indore and we didnt get started till 11.30pm We had to pay the cab driver extra because of this."
Pros: "Food was better, seating and TVs seemed updates."
Cons: "the web check in doesn’t work. It was a nightmare trying to check in online and get seats. We set food preferences several times and in several ways (on phone , online and even confirmed it at check in) but we were not served the meals we ordered. This is a huge problem since we had the same issue going from EWR to BOM"
Cons: "eats and arm rest not working not clean entertainment system not working no ADL kit springs poking into the back"
Cons: "Though it was crowded but passengers were not courteaous to each other. As soon as flight landed everyone were rushing to get out without caring of others"
Pros: "In flight service was simply outstanding. The crew was ever ready to assist and always smiling."
Cons: "Check in procedure was extremely slow and the person seemed rather cold. No special checked baggage allowance for First Class passenger. BA allows 3 bags. Would have been nice to see some leniency or formal change in their baggage policy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "seats are nice and bigger than most aircrafts, leg room is plenty."
Cons: "food was not good, Indian airline serving Indian food and could not get it right."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The flight is the oldest and dysfunctional everything that I ever flew and I have been flying almost every other month for over 10 years. Crappy entertainment option for a 17 hour flight and nothing works, food was mediocre too. They serve dinner/breakfast and alcohol based on India time and not based on your destination time which is odd because they serve you alcohol just before landing at sfo at 6:00 am. It’s outta control."
Pros: "Food was good and everything was on time."
Cons: "Food was good and the service is mediocre. Flight crew did not bother to check with us for anything. They did not bother to answer any questions. Their interactions were borderline rude. Three of us Travelled together and in flight entertainment was broke for all three monitors. One of the food trays was broken and it was circus trying to eat all the stuff in our lap. Flight crew didn't bother to help and neither did they give us any extra time to finish our meals."
Cons: "Old planes need maintenance"
Pros: "Easy boarding process with premium economy (or Economy Privilege, for Brussels Air). Flight wasn't so full so was easy to move to an empty row for more space and ease of sleeping on this overnight flight."
Cons: "(1) Unfortunately couldn't do web check-in because I had bought the ticket through Air India; and strangely the e-ticket receipt only mentioned one time that it was co-chaired with Brussels Air, which caused confusion at the departure terminal. (2) Food quality was poor, with a soft soggy sandwich as the first snack/meal on this overnight flight; then a breakfast with soggy egg and tough chicken. As I wasn't feeling well, I asked a flight attendant for an extra bread roll, and she grabbed one from a tray just collected from another passenger and tried to offer it to me!! Then she stopped short, seeing the packaging was open and went to get another. Needless to say, that was pretty appalling -- and also very surprising given this was a Brussels Airlines plane and staff. (3) Given above, I had a surprisingly poor experience on this flight. I have flown on Brussels Airlines before so was really surprised by the unexpectedly less-than-average quality of service and food."
Cons: "In flight service from EWR to MUMBAI was very poor. Headphones were not working, snacks were not provided and when the service light was on, air hostess never came . Overal, horrible experience. I will not fly AI again."
Pros: "Direct connectivity to destination was only perk for choosing this flight. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were down. Food served was substandard. Seats were in bad shape and duct tape work was done. No one is available in pantry area to help with water tea or any other things."
Cons: "I didn’t like unpaid for a Business CLass seat and no entertainment system for half the flight. Also was 2 hours late"
Cons: "Tv was not working"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable plane. The seats are worse than economy in a US airlines plane"
Cons: "Additionally, my friend travelling with me got a business class upgrade for free which the agent did not entertain when I asked. The seat assignment was with a severely obese person and they did not change when I asked, though the flight was pretty empty and people were using 3 seats to sleep and fly all the way back."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and boarding was generally orderly."
Cons: "The boarding from Heathrow to EWR was confusing-- the monitor said "Boarding" two hours before the flight, which caused a lot of confusion for passengers. The airline was boarding a certain class of passenger, but there were no announcements to inform other passengers that they weren't doing general boarding at the time. The touch screens on the back of the seats are annoying (especially on a 7-hour flight) to the passenger in front, as they can feel the constant tapping through the seat."
Pros: "on-time....no issues. Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Less selection on english movies.... little wider, flat business class seats like other airlines have."
Pros: "Crew treatment of passengers"
Cons: "The food on the flight from SanFrancisco to Delhi on the 14th August was very spicy."
Cons: "The fruits served was bad and got spoiled. No proper response from the cabin team"
Cons: "Our AI flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai was delayed by more than 3 hrs. Though I had access to the Business Class passenger lounge, the one at the AMD airport is less than mediocre. Finally, when we reached BOM, it took the wheelchair service nearly an hour to get me and other wheelchair dependent passengers off the plane. This nearly caused us to miss our connecting flight to Newark. We also did not get to use the lounge in BOM as a result of the delay in AMD and BOM. I was travelling in Business Class due to my severely bad health condition. My husband was travelling in economy. AI ground staff was so arrogant and inconsiderate that they would not help my husband get a seat (within economy class) close to the Business Class section so he can attend to me periodically on the 16-hour long flight to Newark. In addition to the ground and flight staff being inconsiderate, the interior of the plane and the food service (in the economy class) are less than mediocre. We had choice of other airlines, but being proud indians, my wife and I decided to give AI a chance. Next time, we will find other ways to show our love for India than patronizing AI."
Pros: "The size of the plane was big."
Cons: "They combined 2 flights and boarded people going to Bangalore and did not say anything about it. The pilot acted like the plan all along was to go to Bangalore instead of Chennai. It took us 5 1/2 hours instead of 2, and many people missed their connections. We were 3 hours late to Chennai. None of the flight attendance knew what was going on either. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Hello ridiculous flight. unethical update from kayak on the flight status."
Pros: "Service good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "I enjoy the food. they had plenty of options for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians."
Cons: "The seats were small. The TV screens did not work which was frustrating."

Cons: "flight was too full"
Cons: "the entertainment did not work, bathroom were not clean,"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Property is a bit old, but in general still in good condition"
Pros: "The process of checking in and boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was profesional and looked profesional."
Cons: "As a sugestión I would encourage the crew to smile a bit more."
Cons: "Food, service"
Pros: "Clean, decent seats and good food"
Cons: "Terrible attitude from the older air hostess, flight was an hour late"
Pros: "Food tasted really good, hospitality, cleanliness"
Cons: "Inadequate toiletries in the toilet, a couple of fellow passengers were quite rude regarding an issue with keeping my bag on my allotted place."
Pros: "Cheap price I guess."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours and we had to sit on the plane for half of that. Don't give out many refreshments during the trip. Entertainment is decent but not many options to choose from for television."
Pros: "The flight was full of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was old."
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly, baggage came out quickly upon landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes. We were sitting at the gate and don't think we heard any announcements. Even boarding we just noticed people start lining up. Snack was a cheese sandwich which we couldn't eat because vegan -- would have been nice to have chips or something."
Pros: "Waited 1 hr. to check into my flight even though only 4 people were in front of me in line. Waited another hour after boarding time to get on the plane. Two of the bathrooms were broken on the flight, leaving only two bathrooms for the entire flight, so had to wait in a half-hour queue each time I had to use the bathroom. Seats were uncomfortable and staff was inattentive and didn't seem to care."
Cons: "No drinks were served at all. No juice or soda was offered. Bathrooms unusable the last 4 hrs. Very hard for all."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after sitting in the plane for three hours. Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The complete and utter unprofessionalism and inexperience from airplane crew to ground staff. The flight got cancelled after we were sitting in the plane for three hours. We were told we can go to a hotel and wait for plane to be fixed by the next day or re-book. A majority of us wanted to get to NY that day so we wanted to re-book. When we get to the Air India desk there was one sweet old Indian lady working there, completely unaware of what is going on: that our flight got cancelled, that we sat in plane for three hours, that we wanted to re-book. It took hours and many arguments with various staff of Heathrow to get us re-booked to other flights. Our flight was scheduled at 12:30pm; I finally got re-booked at 5:00pm, and left Heathrow at 10pm! Longest day ever! I have flown across the world in less time than what it took me to fly from London to NY."
