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!!

They did not let my uncle fly

Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change of the flight"
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: "The hospitable from the crew, the food was great, but i miss my separate connection flight, eventhough i was on time to board, they boarding desk told me my bag is behind, so they could not let me fly. I bought another ticket for my connection flight."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

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."

Cons: "Should use 380 craft"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "the flight was smooth, comfortable and a lot faster than DOHA - BOSTON."
Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."
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: "The airport did not have air conditioning, which was very annoying given the temperature outside was 30C."
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: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."
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: "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."

Cons: "The flight was 1 hour and 30 minutes late! There was confusion as to which gate to go to for the flight once it was called. They did not call passengers by sections so everyone just crowded the gate waiting to board. It was a bit chaotic and overwhelming for staff and passengers. There was no entertainment and there was no legroom and I am 5’7” so I was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "Daniella in tel Aviv awesome deserves raise very professional all flight attendants pleasant thank you plane left on time landed 15 early a true pleasure highly recommend Opposite of norwegian in every way"

Cons: "We waited about an hour lined up outside of the gate to board. Then when we finally boarded late, we sat on the runway for 2 hours! This wasn’t the first time it’s happened on this flight, either! We were thirsty and no one offered us water. The flight attendants kept skipping my friend and I when they did come around, which was not often. We were extremely thirsty the entire time and when we finally were able to get up to use the bathroom and search for water, we were told to sit back down. We got tiny cups of water about three times on a 10.5 hour flight. Lastly, the entertainment selection was very small and limited."
Pros: "The food was good"

Cons: "Traffic"
Pros: "Was very smoth"
Pros: "Bording+crew"
Cons: "Time arrive late"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too.

Pros: "Accurate time of departure and landing. Excellent and generous service. Cheap price. 62 kg weight allowed. Comfortable business class."

Cons: "Tack off was late Hand bagged (cabin baggage ) must be treated early at boarding counter not on board"

Cons: "The food was mediocre and the TV screens were terrible quality and it made the movies appear to be from the 1950's. The plane felt old and dirty."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Extra leg space. Nicer crew. Better airport and boarding experience"

Pros: "The check-in staff in South Africa were exceptionally pleasant, the food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "The seats were very narrow with little leg-room on the JHB to Abu Dhabi leg of the flight - and I'm a short person."
Pros: "The planes are comfortable and the crew are all very nice and helpful! I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Pros: "Everything was perfect...seats crew food accuracy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Crew not helpful . Same with food not enough ):"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment."
Cons: "The information desk had a terrible attitude towards me - the customer, and when I tried to explain to them how disrespectful they were being they continued to disrespect me once again. Also, the worker at the counter was lazy and wouldn't do his required job. Also, the new update towards the tv makes it harder for me to pause the movie I am watching or to finish the movie altogether."
Pros: "Loved the amount of leg room in economy class. Also impressed with the number of entertainment options, especially the movies. The things provided in each seat (blanket, pillow, socks, etc) were very generous and nice as well."
Cons: "One of the flights ran out of blankets. It was freezing in the cabin"
Cons: "Seats. Aurconditioning, entertainment"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "I have been upgraded to business class which was something cool, doesn't happen a lot. The check in was really fast , and the man giving the boarding passes was really, nice"
Cons: "The crew in the business class, were NOT up to the standards. Whenever I ask about something, they say ... I will come back, Yes they come, but after a while. When serving the food, they gave me the main course, without bringing the salad or appetizer, they didn't ask to bring or not, and I thought that it goes without mentioning to bring them. After finishing the main course, she asked if I finished, so I said yes, she took the whole tray, without asking or bringing the desert, which is again strange. before landing , I wanted to take a medicine, so asked for water, but they said to me we started to descent, and they didn't bring me water except after saying I needed this for taking medicine"
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Pros: "Service Seats Flight attendants"
Pros: "Meal was good"
Cons: "Was charged USD 350 for one overweight bag. Asked Etihad beforehand if I could use a 72 transit visa to enter china on my current itenary. They said it was fine. I was stopped at the gatein Seoul by Asians who refused to board me on the plane because my itenary was incorrect. Will never fly either of these airlines again, and am currently seeking repayment for my unintended 4 day stay in Seoul"
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived early. This is so important when we have connecting flights that are about one hour away from arrival time."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. Great service"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be new or something else happened but they ran out of food to serve, so they handed out bread rolls and soft drinks which then sat on our trays for the majority of the flight."
Pros: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Cons: "I did receive my bag, even I reserve business class."
Pros: "good food, good wine, flight on time, large and good choice on films, early boarding. having a free shuttle to and from Dubai is amazing."
Cons: "entertainement not available before take off is very frustrating. it means one hour on board without using our screen. also quite not sure why it stops working 30 mn before landing. many companies make it work throughout all stay on board."
Cons: "Better Movies and music"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Entertainment console only partially working. Toilet vacant/occupied indicator not working fully."
Pros: "Crew was amazing both the ground staff and the FA on board. Food was nice."
Cons: "No USB charge or personal video entertainment. It's an old plane that desperately needs upgrades. For the price point of the route compared other carriers, the only benefit you are getting is a direct flight."
Pros: "Business Class on the Code Share, South African Air was superb"
Pros: "The crew between Joburg and Accra were friendly and fantastic. Less so the crew from Accra to DC"
Cons: "SAA’s food quality has declined over the past 20 years. And entertainment seems to be running a bit behind compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Not on the flight"
Cons: "Connecting flight was late"
Pros: "For a flight of 1 1/2 hours, we were served a delicious hot lunch."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Put my fiancé and I in separate parts of the plane."
Pros: "All aspects of this flight were good."
Cons: "When we were waiting prior to our flight in the duty free area of terminal "A", Kayak notified me via text that the flight was scheduled for terminal "B". If I had not taken the same flight before many times, I would have been concerned with the incorrect information Kayak provided."
Cons: "The food was bland and they didn’t have enough of each option. For one meal I couldn’t get what I requested and just barely got it for the second one."
Pros: "The crew is always nice and friendly"
Cons: "Upgrade media units"
Pros: "Friendly accomodating crew. Flight was delayed but made up the time in the air."
Cons: "Its a short flight, hard to complain about anything."
Pros: "The plane was old and the seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats for domestic flights. Clean plane"
Cons: "Domestic planes not big on entertainment."
Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."
Pros: "Some of the crew were very nice, and flight left close to on time"
Cons: "Tv didn’t work, when I asked for help I got a bad attitude from 3 different flight attendants. Finally one very nice one found me a new seat with working television."
Cons: "Many seats the entertainment system didn't work. Both on our outgoing and return trips. Our seats going had one of the two systems inoperable. Coming home both were inoperable. They both were 16 hour flights!!!"
Cons: "Was delayed by and hour and given a bad seat even though I am a premier member"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Poor luggage handling."
Pros: "I like that I got an aisle seat this time, even though it was toward the rear of the plane. Because of my right knee, I requested an aisle seat on the flight from NY to Johannesburg, but somehow I didn't get one. I thought the crew was very accommodating and helpful"
Cons: "The delay because of problems with loading the baggage got us to JFK late. And that was just on the plane after we had to stand in the longest line before boarding. I also couldn't really enjoy the entertainment (e.g. movies or music) because the headset didn't fit well into the arm of the seat. I could only hear voices when I held the headset cord in one position, and it was difficulty keeping it in that position for an entire movie."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Delayed departure No priority luggage handling (not in Iohannesburg and not in Cape Town). Luggage was marked “Priority” by carrier but it came out last off both legs. Not sure that works. Seated a super sized human in middle seat; this person could not even open the tray fully. Overflow several inches into my seat. Made for a very uncomfortable last 2 hours of a long journey."
Pros: "Seat was ok, as was the amenity kit provided"
Cons: "Crew was the worst - one air stewardess in particular was aggressive and rude and treated me like dirt when I asked for water. I just felt like I was a nuisance and inconvenience to the air stewardess party in the back of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and professional. Aircraft was clean."
Pros: "Flight was great overall"
Cons: "The flight was slightly late and made me miss an expensive excursion I had to forfeit and unable to re-book. I missed the highlight of my trip."
Cons: "Inflight services were poor"
Cons: "Audio on the in fight entertainment did not work, The headphone jack was not usable."
Pros: "Excellent, kind , helpful and friendly crew on my Johannesburg to NYC flight - one of the best I have ever flown with ! Thank you !"
Pros: "Overall good as expected. The onboard crew were unfailingly charming and helpful."
Cons: "At O. R. Tambo airport in JNB the boarding/security process at the gate was chaotic, with massed passengers held on line on the boarding jetways and stairs for over an hour and no explanation given."
Pros: "The flight attendants were gracious and friendly."
Cons: "The food was not great. Flapjacks for breakfast.."
Pros: "The long layover didn't help, but having the SAA staff at the foot of the stairs to the plane taking handluggage away to be checked was not appreciated, especially considering the plane was no more than at 75% capacity. In-flight meal was simple but well-prepared and tasty."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work, the seats were bad, and the plane was way too old"
Pros: "The flight overall was really comfortable. Crew were friendly, entertainment was extensive with multiple options. Flight was empty so seating was really comfortable."
Cons: "Food was awful. We chose the Muslim meal and it was really bad. I would prefer going with a Seafood or vegetarian option. For such a long flight breakfast was really measly and no snacks were provided Bathroom were filthy. There should be a backup plan to keep bathrooms in better condition for long flights."
Cons: "My luggage was "lost" for more than half of my trip and when I finally received it all of my electronic and various other items were stolen."
Pros: "The special meal order was carried out."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work on either 15-hour flight. that made the trip very difficult."
Pros: "Nothing... We were bounced because they oversold"
Cons: "Bounced. Told us nothing. Seemed impressed that they were paying for an off airport hotel for us. Gave us a minor voucher that expires in a year and is not transferable so worthless."
Pros: "I don't remember a great deal after flying for many long hours. I do know I enjoy the vegetarian breakfasts quite a bit."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was untowards. There was a minor delay in boarding I think but that wasn't a concern to me. I like to think we are each doing our very best. The flight attendants work very long hours with a slew of people. I appreciate your inquiries."
Pros: "Bathrooms were relatively clean throughout the flight"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. The TV screens were poorly functioning/blurry and very limited in selection. No USB charger available. While 3 meal options were available, options ran out quickly. I flew two other international flights earlier this year (Qatar and United) and there was a clear difference in quality that was lacking in South Africa Airlines."
Pros: "I had two seats next to me vacant so I was able to spread out a little. :-)"
Cons: "Technology sucked. TV screens were old and none of the headphone jacks worked. Very annoying for a 16 hour flight."
Pros: "The ground crew were very efficient and kind. I felt like we were in good hands throughout the process, which included checking everyone's visas. Above all the flight crew was helpful, friendly and quick. they took very good care of us. I thought their service on the flight was exceptionally good."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The meal was very good and so was the complimentary Castle Lager. I really enjoyed conversing with my seat row mates from England!"
Cons: "The boarding gate check in was very slow and the boarding via a bus was also slow."
Pros: "Entertainment was vastly improved vs the outbound flight. Not as great though as other airlines. Has serious catching up to do on quality of flight and entertainment to other airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was messed up with wrong information on the monitors, 2 lines formed. Service was not ok considering it was business class."
Cons: "I missed it due to the delay of LH"
Pros: ".Ability of the pilot and in flight communication to passengers during thunderstorm - Excellent"
Cons: "Quality of the in flight meal-poor. Communication to passengers about storm and delays prior to bith flights"
Pros: "First leg of flight from Johannesburg to Senegal, the crew was good. Second leg from Senegal to Washington, the new crew was horrible. So much unnecessary attitude by multiple attendants."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good meals"
Cons: "On both flights, personnel did not pick up trash after serving meals or snacks. Other airlines much better. Last half of flight, unable to watch movies because kept breaking up or shutting down."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."
Cons: "The extra-legroom seats at the front lose width due to extra-wide armrests that hold a fold-out tray. The seats are not padded enough to be comfortable for a long flight or to sleep in. The food was what you think of as airline food; it was much better from JFK to Johannesburg. And they lost my luggage."
Pros: "The sleeping accommodations were roomy."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "That the flight was nonstop direct and the leg room in economy was very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system was terrible with both poor screen quality and single sided audio. You could barely understand the dialogue and needed to hold the head phones to your ears. Food was bland with poor presentation. We also received a meal at the start and end of the 15 hour flight with nothing offered in between. Seat cushions need to be replaced."
Pros: "The seats were way more comfortable than the first (and longer) leg of the trip. The staff was incredibly kind and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't activated :/"
