Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."
Cons: "Great service."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Pros: "The purser and the business class cabin attendants were amazing. Great choice of meals. Fantastic experience"
Cons: "Delayed flight for no apparent reason"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and aircraft was clean and seats comfortable!"
Cons: "I would like to have more air fresheners during the flight as there are some people who eat special food and it smells so bad in aircraft"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."
Pros: "The facilitated transfer in Doha within twenty minutes"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
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"

One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."

Pros: "Arrival and departure is on time treatment is excellent very courteous For all category of passenger"

Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"
Cons: "The boarding process was strange, with one guy directing several different zones to stand in line, people not cooperating and just overrall not very organized."

So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "The new A380 flight is very comfortable. The leg room even in economy was great."
Cons: "The in flight crew service was absolutely terrible. I was shocked to receive this kind of service by Emirates. I did not receive any assistance by the crew members even after pressing the call button and waiting for over 20 mins. Finally I had to get up and help myself. This was not just once but twice in a single flight. One of the stewards serving my area seemed very curt. The food was also terrible. My chicken dish was cold and very dry. Even the side bread was like a rock. The coffee that was served after the meal was cold. This kind of service is unacceptable on a 16hr trans Atlantic flight. Overall very disappointed with Emirates."

Pros: "Very nice service"
Cons: "Food came before alcohol :)"
Pros: "Satisfactory in all respect"
Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."
Pros: "That i landed"
Cons: "No snack and a drink when you get on the plane. Straight to lunch and the food is less than mediocre. I asked for water several times and never got it. The seats are extremely uncomfortable. The head rest is supposed to help but really you just end up sitting awkwardly with back spasms."
Cons: "Had to run across Dubai airport to make my connection. Nobody at the gate to direct passengers to their short connections under 20 mins. Horrible experience. A person without the ability to run at full clip would not have made the connection. This was an international flight from Los Angeles - Bags did not make the connection either and had to wait two days for them. If you issue tickets with short connection times, it is your responsibility to make sure passengers will have adequate time to make it to their next gate. Or airline should provide some assistance to these passengers. Making them run is unacceptable."
Cons: "Long time for boarding and staff is not clear on baggage policy"
Cons: "Layover time at the airport"
Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"
Pros: "Seats were large and comfortable. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that we had pre-booked, so they gave us an extra breakfast meal, which tasted bad and meant that we had the same meal twice (for dinner and breakfast). Additionally, our row (in the back of the plane) felt rather crammed in, and most of the overhead baggage space was taken up by blankets."
Pros: "Very friendly, courteous service. Boeing 777, spacious and quiet aircraft."
Pros: "The plane looked nice and was clean, entertainment, food is only so-so."
Cons: "Seats were too stiff (hard). Can't use my personal headphones because it doesn't support it (single plug). Food was so-so (generic and poor). Bathrooms were a mess."

Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "ON time Flight"
Cons: "Departure time"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The quality of the plane was good and the movies were good. Also the blanket and pillow was nice."
Cons: "I was really cramped and couldn’t recline because the guy behind me was too tall and it amashes his legs, so I had to be uncomfortable for the entire flight."
Cons: "They’re not too helpful in helping me get on a flight to my final destination."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Pros: "i was cold and i woke up to find an *extra* blanket on me. quickly unwrapped it and put it on and all good after that."
Cons: "ba website messed up our meal selections. luckily the staff were nice and gave us something suitable."
Cons: "Our baggage was lost and after 2 day’s of being told that the delivering agent had our baggage and it would be delivered any minute, on the third day we were told our bags had been st the Madrid airport the whole time! Between British Airways and Iberia, terrible handoff, communication and customer service."
Pros: "The seat headrest makes it easy to sleep. Good selection of movies. Didn't get hungry."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good films to watch. Arrived on time."
Cons: "The meal selections were not great. Choice between chicken and vegetarian was not much of a choice. Beef, pork, lamb, fish - all better."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "Nearly everything. BA is about 30-40% of what it used to be"
Pros: "Excellent customer service thank you"
Cons: "I did not like the food"
Cons: "very very short layover at London, had to run to the gate and almost didn’t make it. Only one of our two bags made it to Dublin. Not happy at all. Not sure if I will be booking with kayak again."
Pros: "The cabin crew went above and beyond to work around my bit allergy. They were so helpful. I loved the free cocktails and wine as well as meal service."
Pros: "That i had whole row to myself practically"
Cons: "Food. I had no gluten free breakfast practically. The lady accidently gave away my meal to someone else so they gave me the dinner i had missed. There was a problem with the jetties and so we couldnt get off plane it caused me to miss my connecting flight. Crew not helful in trying to get gate info of my connecting flight nor letting us know if our connecting flight could be held a few minutes to make sure we could get on it"
Pros: "Very smooth and fast."
Cons: "I did not like"
Pros: "Everything thank u"
Pros: "Th flight was late, we lost our connection flight, they put us on another flight which arrived two hours later in a different airport!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and really nothing important has happened - and that was good. I also liked that the British Airways wished us Merry Christmas instead Happy Holidays I've been hearing here in the US where people's correctness really sucks."
Cons: "Everything was ok thus I'm not complaining."
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Pros: "The woman at the check in desk worked patiently with us until she found us an alternate route. We werare given food and hotel vouchers to get us through the night."
Cons: "Our British Airways flight was downgraded to a smaller airplane and we were not informed of this until we were in an hour in to waiting in a very long line to check in at the airport. We were unable to check in online the night before but not told why, and then we were unable to check in at the electronic kiosk at the airport but also not told way. When we got into the very confused and long line at the check-in desk 2.5 hours before our scheduled departure, we waited for almost an hour before anybody told us what was going on. They then told us that the flight has been downgraded to a smaller airplane, and that the agents were individually looking into rerouting passengers as they came up to the desk. Yeah sure does that the flight would not leave until everything was resolved and that people who had purchased their flights earlier would have priority. We then waited another 1.5 hours before it was our turn to speak to an agent at the desk. She told us that we would definitely not be getting on the flight because we had not checked in in time, which we had been unable to do. She then worked on rerouting us and offered us what sounded like an excellent flight option direct to Amsterdam on KLM the following day, however when we went to KLM to check in for the flight they said it was overbooked and we could go standby but we would not be guaranteed seats. We went back to her again and she eventually booked us on a Delta flight through Salt Lake City leaving the following day. We are currently in Salt Lake awaiting our flight to Amsterdam. This gets us to Amsterdam 12 hours after planned, Shortening our vacation with friends and causing us to miss events that have been planned. We are very upset that there was no information provided to us earlier and that British Airways did not, as is customary, first seek volunteers to take later flights, before bumping people off due to a lack of seats on their available plane. Instead they gave priority to people that had paid more money to check in with priority. We booked our flights 3 1/2 months ahead of time and feel that we were grossly AND unnecessarily put out by the actions and lack of communication throughout the process with British Airways."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, but after I took another flight, I was notified that my flight had merely been postponed for half an hour. By this time, I'd already missed my train in Frankfurt, creating hours of extra travel time and huge inconvenience after an already long trip from the US. British Airways said the cancellation had been due to weather, but skies were clear from London to Frankfurt. I'll never fly BA again."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment Serbians beverages"
Cons: "There is no - zero - comfortable way to sit in economy on this plane. I'm a six foot tall man and getting in and out of the seats just to use the restroom (which were the smallest I've ever seen on any passenger jet), was nearly impossible. I will never fly this class on an Airbus 380 again."
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "Ease of booking flights and you get what you paid for.. excellent!"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Pros: "Nothing was bad. Take off to landing was great. Red wine was"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "The video selection was terrific."
Cons: "I was right in front of a cabinet that the stuardess used and my seat was hit at least three times. The seat bottoms were much too painful for a 10 hour flight, I even sat on my pillow the last five hours just to be somewhat comfortable. Next time I will request a second pillow."
Cons: "The hour + delay leaving LAX AND DELAY again on landing"
Cons: "luggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "Everything was fine until I ate my breakfast."
Cons: "My special kosher meal cause me to immediately have stomach cramps and estreme nausea - within 20 min of eating it. I had horrible pains and could not use the bathroom due to landing. Upon landing I ran to the use the restroom and the staff promised to keep an eye on my bags. When I exited the bathroom after being violently ill, no one was on the plane except the cleaning staff, and no one was keeping an eye on my bags. I found my purse unzipped. Luckily nothing seems to be stolen. I proceeded to vomit and have food poisoning symptoms the next few hours while waiting for my connecting flight to Rome. I vomited through the entire flight to Rome - no one seemed particularly concerned. No one asked if I needed a hospital. British Air would not take a report about the food poisoning onsite. Nothing was done to help me change my flights to avoid flying so sick or make any helpful suggestions whatsoever."
Cons: "Airplane food"
Pros: "Nice plane and good food, very nice flight!"
Cons: "smallest coach I have ever been in. very squished and I was next to my wife at 95 lb and a skinny young man who took no room at all. I am only 5'9" 170. But thats how the flights get so cheep"
Cons: "Nothing that was good."
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Cons: "The overhead luggage bins near my seat on my LAX-LHR flight were too small to accomodate my European standard carry-on, which meant that another passenger and I had to store our luggage three sections away before there was an empty bin big enough. I understand the need for different sized bins, especially since our seats were up against the galley, but I felt a little unsupported by the crew. They basically just told us, "walk down far enough and you'll find something"--this was true but not exactly helpful. It's a small thing, but I think maybe if you warned passengers sitting in seats with smaller bins ahead of time, that would help make things smoother, since another stressor was that we didn't find places for our luggage until it was almost time for takeoff."
Cons: "Since you now have to pay for additional luggage, which I have always done in the past, I find it increasing infuriating that when boarding the plane to store my carry on luggage I have not been able to store this appropriately, I am led to believe as a paying customer I should not have to store my carry on luggage by my feet because the overhead cabin is not available to me. ."
Pros: "Hello I saw charged the ticket twice !!!! Thank you"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats were so close together I could hardly move. Too close for international flight! The tall guy behind me needed me to keep my chair up some from reclined position because it hit him!"
Pros: "Nice spacious seats"
Cons: "That you checked my carry-on"
Cons: "No wifi"
