It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

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

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

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!"
Cons: "~"
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: "Staff were fantastic."
Cons: "Better movies please."
Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."
Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
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: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
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."
Cons: "WiFi"
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"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
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: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
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."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
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: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
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."
Pros: "nothing"
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: "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: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Pros: "Helpful friendly crew, reasonable ticket prices."
Cons: "Luggage was delayed by 24 hours, customer service desk in Johannesburg EXTREMELY helpful, in Kigali they were clueless. Transit area very crowded, humid and stuffy."

Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "The crew members are very polite and professional"
Cons: "The food is not very nice, the drink is don’t taste so great either . The airline seats are too small"

Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."

Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"
Pros: "on schedule. staff at counters and flight crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"
Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"

Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"

Overall a pleasant flight.

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Internet"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."

Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"

Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."

In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."
