Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, leg room"
Cons: "Need to serve better food in economy. There is a little more legroom in economy compared to other airlines, however, the seats are tight. They are not wide enough. Need better movie selection."
Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Pros: "First time flying on Qatar and must say that the crew was excellent. One of the best crews I have ever flown in the last 22 years of New York - India sector. Special mention for HAIFA my hostess for flight QR702 on April 12th. She was the best hostess I have ever had!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t bad but since I flew Etihad in July 2017 from New York to Abu Dhabi to Mumbai and back my memories were fresh and Egihad’s food was definitely a notch higher."
Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"

Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"
Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Cons: "Food and service and crew"
Pros: "Best host staff"
Pros: "There is a reason Qatar was ranked the best airlines last year. From service that was above and beyond, whether on the plane or in the airport and lounges. The nicest and most attentive people. Outstanding menus and comfort on the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Pros: "Much better than the flight from Mumbai to Doha. The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Pros: "They make you feel like a person"
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional."
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
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."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."

Pros: "It was a short flight, so no problems"
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "Cabin crew courtesy."
Pros: "The food and seats were very comfy."
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "Quality entertainment."
Cons: "Staff did nothing about crying children for the entire flight. Food was awful."
Cons: "Layover in the middle of the night - no sleep! Also, crew kept waking us up for meals etc, versus letting us sleep."
Pros: "The entire Qatar crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Requested isle seat from DOHA to Houston but was issued middle seat."
Pros: "The crew, the food overall experience was excellent. Special thanks to two crew members Mohammad and the other crew she was from India. I got her name unfortunately lost the paper with her name. Her name stars with G or C I think.Thank you for the excellent service."
Pros: "Some touch screen tv didn't work and some old style tv the audio didn't work. Flying 22hours like this can be difficult."
Pros: "The flights were on time"
