Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "Crew as very helpful"
Cons: "passenger seated next to are rude"

Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"

Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"

Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"

Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."

Pros: "Customer service and food."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."

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."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Food is good except Chicken coconut curry"

Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."
Cons: "The short flight from Doha to Nairobi was uncomfortably because of dry air in the plane."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Flat bed in business. Crew as such nothing great."

Cons: "Passengers in front of you slamming their seats back that crushed and spilled my food all over me. Happened 3 times!!!"

Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

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: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"
Cons: "Ground/baggage handling in ATL. Bags took 40-50 minutes to show up on carousel. The ground staff at ATL dropped the ball when everything else was going so smoothly"

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

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

Pros: "I would definitely travel again with quatar. Amazing trip long hours but they sure take care of the passenger. Love how they took care of my child"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."
Cons: "long layover and very tight seat conditions were my only big complaints."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

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: "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"

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."

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: "Chicken sandwich was not good"

Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and seemed very accommodating. The flight was on time to leave, or maybe even a few minutes early. The food was very good. Overall it was a very comfortable flight.Oh and the little toiletry bag was a very nice touch. I for sure used the socks in there and the toothbrush was bonus."
Cons: "I didn't have any issues on this flight. Everything was great for me."

Pros: "We got to our destination 20mins early. And this is not the first time this has happened with United Airlines"

Cons: "Smooth flight on time"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very late flight, seats bad"

Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "I researched United’s, FAA, and my car seat company website before trying to board with it. I was told by flight attendant that I could only bring the car seat on board if it had a sticker? I don’t know what sticker she was referring to and it’s tough to keep a toddler safe with just a lap belt"

Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."

Cons: "15 hours late! Terrible communication about the flight, conflicting messages, and no concern for the customers. What more CanIsay!"

Pros: "">XSS"
Cons: "">XSS"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and ensured I got what I needed even though I slept through most of the flight."

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Pros: "Nothing..."
Cons: "50 characters isn’t enough to describe the pain I went through. United airlines screwed me. Canceled flight and didn’t compensate me only with a flight to Chicago and a 15 hour wait for the next flight... no hotel or food... no transportation."

Pros: "Seats were quite comfortable. Service pretty great."
Cons: "The only issue was checking my bag at MHT. The guy at the desk had no idea what he was doing, and it made me really nervous."

Pros: "Just arriving safe, otherwise Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service is very poor"

Pros: "Ended up requesting a refund. Received zero compensation and zero empathy from anyone at United. Left the airport infuriated and drove to my destination instead."
Cons: "Ended up requesting a refund. Received zero compensation and zero empathy from anyone at United. Left the airport infuriated and drove to my destination instead."

Pros: "check in agent"
Cons: "1.5 hr delay due to aircraft issues, and crew ultimately trying punt on the “airport protocol’. beyond lame."

Pros: "Perfect service"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment. Recycling."
Cons: "Sat at ORD for 30 minutes on runway."

Pros: "comfortable and on time"

Pros: "Crew helpfull"
Cons: "Seats had less leg room Seat belts seemed to be made for someone with waist size 30."

Pros: "Was clean and nice"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "Food gave me an upset stomach. I took the cheese and spinach pie or whatever that was. Not used to paying extra for in flight entertainment... that's just ridiculous."

Pros: "I liked that the crew was nice and caring."
Cons: "I didn't like the take off or landing."

Pros: "Love the cookie! Good crew."

Pros: "Always raved about my experience. This time was not impressed. The people who initially took our bags were great, there after... not good."
Cons: "Arrived at 0750, ahead of schedule and waited until 0915 to get off the plane due to an error with the gate and then a malfunction of equipment. Now waiting for our baggage for 40 min. still nothing. Disappointing start to an already short vacay."

Cons: "I wish I knew I couldn't bring my carry on with me!!! United is always finding ways to screw the passenger's experience. I have a wedding to go to and needed my small duffle carry on with me and because I got a "basic economy" ticket, this was not possible. Some forewarning of this insanity would have been helpful! Really so annoyed!"

Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with no food or entertainment. Who does that?"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay 8 hours with short notice I had 2 take Uber 90$ 2 Boston airport"

Pros: "Quick flight."

Pros: "passengers & crew were friendly & upbeat"
Cons: "many boarding time changes & a gate change. The most extreme was from Noon to 11:45a back to 9:15a for the original 8a boarding time ... a couple of very turbulent pockets that caused some passengers to scream."

Pros: "Nothing. Never again"
Cons: "Rude and unhelpful. No empathy or concern. Erik"

Cons: "They kept delaying the flight. Finally, I decided to drive 6:30 hours."

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Overbooked as usual on a flight we had no chance to make"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and initial Customer Service Representative was not helpful at all."

Pros: "One of the friendliest flight attendants. I did not get her name but she was wonderful. The pilots took extra care and caution due to turbulence."

Pros: "I have no complaints. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Flight left right on time and we even arrived in Cleveland 30 mins early. It was a full flight and was even overbooked, I volunteered to take another flight to provide room but then it turned out I was able to take the last seat. Small but clean airplane."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"

Pros: "Heidi was nice and efficient"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by unknown amour of time. Had to be assigned to another flight. Made me miss my ride home from the SF airport."

Pros: "It was a small prop plane but the flight was amazingly smooth."

Pros: "New plane, smooth ride."
Cons: "Overbooked the flight and had to check my carry on, which took over 30 minutes to get once we landed."

Cons: "The noisy children"

Pros: "Easiest boarding process I've ever had. Terrific!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, small cramped"

Pros: "It wasn't over crowded."
Cons: "When arriving to the airport it was a bit confusing first finding where to get our connecting flight, that may have been an airport problem. But once we got to the right gate our plane was cancel or re-gated/scheduled three times. We had to walk all over the airport with less and less time to spare to make our flight out. When asking for direction or where to go we could never get a straight answer, it seem as if no one knew where to send us. I felt if I was being herded and hustled on getting a flight home, I had no choice in the matter of getting my flight out. If it wasn't for another passenger flying on the same plane we may have missed our flight all together because she was getting alerts on her phone for changes or updates. Once on the flight the air-condition was linking on one of our seat and we were first told to put a blanket over our head until take off, then we saw some empty seats so we asked to move. Once arriving at Cleveland airport we only discover our luggage had not arrived yet, not only did it not arrive we were told it had not yet left London Hethrow Airport and we would maybe get it in 24 hours. This was a problem because some of our personals we needed were in that luggage and we just had to make due and wait and see. We got our luggage the next day only for me to notice my lock was not on my luggage I do not know if this was taken off or I mistakenly left it off but I really do not think I did but I will check with the hotel to see if I left it there. I have always liked United but this really made me think on who to plan my next trip with later this year. And certainly will do my best to avoid coming through New Jersey. :("

Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "It was berry cold on the plane!"

Pros: "It was timely, and the flight attendant was wonderful!"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "No videos to watch; had to supply own due to short flight."

Pros: "The crew kept us feeling comfortable"
Cons: "Hated the security check in on the airport because of their lack of staff also hatted the flight we were delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "Both flights were delayed by 20 mins which made it hard for the connecting flights"

Pros: "The seating was surprisingly comfortable. There was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Nowhere to store one's belongings in the seat I was assigned. It was difficult to get anything needed during the flight that was stored in the overhead (3 seats back)."

Cons: "Terrible gate issues, confusing layout, flight attendant was a bit harsh, very uncomfortable !"

Pros: "Flights were on time, and arrived early at each destination"
