Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

After 4 flights in one month with Qatar I opened up an account to become a member. I will not be using any other airline unless I absolutely have to.

This flight was cancelled

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."

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."

Pros: "On time and 5 star service"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."

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

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: "Nice crews"
Cons: "No headsets to hear movies"
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"
Cons: "We didnt travel on qatar airlines we travelled on airlines from chilie but the staff from qatar airlines"
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."
Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."
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."
Cons: "It was canceled while am at the airport and i rebooked"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
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: "There was no water in the flight's restrooms"

Certains passagers ne portaient pas de masque et ont ignoré les rappels des membres de l'équipage. J'aurais aimé qu'il y ait plus de respect des règles. Grand souci des membres de l'équipage de satisfaire les passagers. Peu d'espace pour les jambes.

Pros: "👍"
Cons: "👍"
Cons: "The temperature was around 18 degrees.i asked several times if they can adjust it to normal the crew kept saying we will ask to pilot etc.no improvement. While facing covid i dont want to get cold!! Secondly no one checked for covid results while boarding and/or on check-in kiosks.i asked during boarding why they are not checking the reports the answer was they thought we had been checked during check-in.totaly fiasco and no alignement.i didnt want to get in a plane people with covid!!"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines, as always, up to the mark!"
Pros: "The food and the fast and efficient customer service."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "The flight was on time , The crew was very professional ."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I was surprised at the amount of food and drink service. It was nice to have on such a long flight. Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep well which is not easy for me on planes."
Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "My Miles&Smiles were not added to the trip."
Pros: "I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best."
Cons: "The boarding was not organized. I was in Group C. We were chained behind a rope. Boarding started and when the agent nearest to us didn't get a passenger quickly he started to take Group D! I did not appreciate that. This continued throughout boarding. Also, as to be expected!, as newer people joined the the lines they went to the line moving - not their Group line. So we stood behind the rope on C while everyone else was boarding. I finally jumped to the moving line. I was tired of waiting. The kosher meals were warm, but not hot. There is no reason for this. I have been flying International for over 20 years and I know what is possible. The seats - for a 10 hour flight - were uncomfortable. Either I need more padding on my rear end or you need better seats."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly"
Cons: "Expedia has doubled charged me for this flight and do not reimburse. You can't issue two seats for only one person. It's a scam."
Pros: "The counter in Kuwait was very kindly with my because I have disabled boy"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "I wa in the restroom and the attendant opened the door on my while I"
Cons: "The plane was late, we missed our connection. Turkish Airlines also lost our baggage."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "They don't speak very well English"

Pros: "The Knowledge that I would never fly Turkish airline again"
Cons: "Cancelled flights without contacting me Delayed takeoff for 9 hours. Took off knowing they would not be able to land in Istanbul and dropped us off in Izmir Did not cover the cost of food at the hotel in Izmir. Took us to a hotel over an hour away from the airport"
Pros: "Cabin/ground crew was professional, nice."
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Pros: "Nothing, just the price"
Cons: "I had 2 flights and both were late, the plane seats is really not comfy and the plane has no entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "gerat flight,no complaints."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I had a great time during my flight from istanbul to Seoul . My seat didn't recline and cabin crew immediately helped and took me to a business class as an apology . They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."
Pros: "came home with 2 broken bags, hard to talk to anybody, emailing back and forth since then to replace them, so far offered much cheaper bags and om top of this, a lot of paper work needed to claim those 2 cheaper replacement !!!"
Cons: "very tight seats for 12+ hours across Atlantic flight, old planes, somewhat unfriendly attendants."
Cons: "I missing my bag 10 days and no any details"
Pros: "Crew nice, seats ok"
Cons: "Dirty! in seat pockets had trash on two flight in both my seat and wives seat. The tvs in the seats were filthy, hazy, smudgy. Just didn't look like they clean well in between flights"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There was no order or control when we got to the gate. Three lines were converging on one to get to the gate and no one from security or the airline was trying to have order."
Pros: "Movies selection and food was great"
Cons: "I was sitting in a row with 4 year old and her mother. It wasn't comfortable for them and for me at all, as the child was moving and talking constantly. Well, it's kid, I understand. But as I was going to use restroom I noticed that there was about 6-8 rows where there was only 1 person in 3 seats. Share and spread the space"
Pros: "the crew, meal, flight, every thing was excellent"
Cons: "It was nothing about the flight itself but the about the Istanbul terminal. If Turkish airlines wants more people to travel through Turkey should improve the following: 1- Should make free Wifi available to every one. 2- Should keep the bathrooms clean at the terminals."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"
Cons: "Didn't like my 11 year old have to sit 15 hrs with some stranger Turkish airline very nad with outing family together even you reserve in advance still they mess your sits and I seen so many family was making same complaints of family are with same last name don't take rocket science to keep them together and also veryyyyyyyyyy boarding no one in line it's like fish market"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Staff were very nice and professional. 🙏. International/domestic recheck was very confusing

Cons: "1. Delay in takeoff for more than 45 minutes 2. There is no screen to display movies"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."
Pros: "The flights were very good, friendly and professional. Planes were clean and seems to be well maintained for the passengers"
Cons: "Only issue I had was a 5 hour layover in Cairo, not long enough to explore so just sitting in the airport, and there is no wifi available in the airport, even at Starbucks nothing. Apparently an airport rule, but it sucks with a long layover."

Pros: "they were friendly and amazing"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The plane was old, the seats were uncomfortable with no adjustable headrest or flaps to hold your head from flopping. There was no personal entertainment screens on the back of the seats, only the small community one mounted on the roof. The sound for this was terribly unclear. 8 hour boring flight."
Cons: "Delayed 16 hours and counting. 300 passengers brought to a hotel and given little to no information. Only 2 egyptair staff members for all 300+ passengers."
Cons: "3 hours delay !"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and spoke English."

None of them were welling to do ther job as the flight were delayed"
Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Long waiting time"
Cons: "My reservation was 2 pieces luggage from Cairo to Kuwait and the same from Kuwait to Cairo ... when I went to the airport Egypt air told that my flight from Kuwait to Cairo just 1 piece and that because you didn’t reserve your ticket from Egypt air directly ... and that made a problem to me Thanks"
Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."
Cons: "This flight was an hour behind schedule and I appreciate it when flights are on time."
Cons: "45 minutes to get my bag!"
Pros: "People. Food"
Cons: "The flight crew didn’t provide any kind of leadership when the passengers were causing a delay. Then we landed 20 minuets later than schedule, but the pilot failed to recognize the delay, he announced the schedule arrival time rather than the actual time. Then the freaking airport is so bad, that I decided not to come back here anymore. The luggage were delayed for an hour and half and we asked the supervisor he said that’s usually what happened, and we have to wait, he didn’t even care to provide any explanation for why all this unnecessary delay."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "we should get our laguage from borg al arab and recheck it back to cairo we waited for one and half hour and we were about to loose the next flight to cairo and again rechecked and the carryon they asked us to send it by plane for safety i mean it was very messy and stressful"
Cons: "why for transit we should pick up our bags and recollect it again why not like all other airways to automatic transfereand we get our lagugae at final distrnstion"
Cons: "Please to repair your seat. Cannot be up right position while takr off or landing. Only recline position"
Pros: "seats were little comfy handrest where not even. choice of movies were basic. clean not a bad flight. food was decent."
Cons: "the stewards were accommodating and always with a smile. Bathrooms kept clean. check in easy."
Pros: "Inexpensive fair."
Cons: "Little interaction with crew"
Pros: "The pilot is very professional . The crew is well trained"
Cons: "Beijing airport delayed the flight 75 minutes !! Too much aitting in the plane"
Pros: "We had a 10 hour lay-over in Cairo and EgyptAIr shuttled us to an excellent hotel and provided lunch and dinner - all for free. This was most excellent and so much more pleasant than sitting at the airport!"
Cons: "If EgyptAir would distribute a little English sheet how the steps are, where to get the passports back (at the EgyptAir Counter in the main hall at the airport), which lines to go to (we didn't officially immigrate, but still had to go through immigration upon return, which wasn't clear). Maybe a word on legal boundaries of the status in Egypt - EgyptAir had the passport, can we go to the pyramids or not - would be useful, too."
Pros: "Good service in flight. Better food than most"
Cons: "Airport handling"
Pros: "Flight from Kuwait to Cairo was great."
Pros: "The crew and ground service is excellent."
Cons: "Bad seats, poor selection of drinks, mediocre food."

Pros: "Overall was good"
Cons: "Boarding time is too long and the security check point is slow"
Pros: "Entertainment was better than first leg"
Cons: "Attendant woke me up several times. Bag was destroyed when I picked it up."

Surprise hour long stop in Cairo? It was the middle of the night, maybe we saw the pyramids? But otherwise a pretty rough experience.

Delayed baggages

Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Cons: "Nothing else. All was well"
Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"
Pros: "Crew is excellent"
Cons: "Delays and we had to actually run for the connected flight"
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"

Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"
Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"

Also the fare is very reasonable. Advertise more, let people know u Pls enhance and expand ur Advertisment among nigerians. Am already spreading d good news among our friends and colleagues. Ethiopian Airline is d way to go"
Cons: "It took too long for d luggages to come out. Pls improve on it"
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"
Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."

Pros: "Prior seating options, friendly air hostess, and vegan meal options."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."
Pros: "The comforts offered in business class was most standard. In other words quite good. The food was middling. Also, 12 plus hours on a plane requires a larger selection of films. Finally, add wi fi."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "."
Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely."
Cons: "The movie selected for the flight was not my preferred genre. Maybe a family film would be better."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Pros: "Tried to cancel charged anyway bad service"
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over two hours, because of shortage of aviation fule causing delay in fuelling aircraft"
Cons: "Comfort level and food."
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "The fact that I had a row of three to myself"
Cons: "I asked for an extra cup of coffee (cups very small) which didn't arrive until I reminded the stewardess several times. Flight was only half full. The food was very bad. A pink sausage and very, very dry bread, which absorbed all moisture in my mouth."
