Overall good experience with just the JetBlue Qatar should have kept the checked in luggage at the Boston Airport while rebooking the missed connection to MSP. That made it extra hard on passengers to carry their luggage to hotel and back and check-in again.
Food is good and tasty. Service also good.
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment choices."
Cons: "It was a long flight, frequent offers of snacks and drinks would’ve been great."
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"

Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Pros: "The crew, the seat and catering"
Cons: "Qatar airways claims to have inflight wifi. But it is not true because it did not work in either of my flights. Food could have been better."
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"

Pros: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"

Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
Pros: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Good food and services"
Cons: "Boarding slow and luggage too strict"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Lovely flight, start to finish. Attentive staff (but not too much so) and seats were comfortable, even in economy. Smooth front and back end to travels as well."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "The crew who were dedicated to our row came by and introduced themselves individually. They came frequently to ask for anything I required. They prompty responded to a request call. The lavatory to passenger ratio for Business class was excellent and I never had to wait for more than a minute. The food was very good but there is room for improvement."
Cons: "Some of the bread and croissants were not really fresh. Fresh fruits were also very limited and not properly ripened."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
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: "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: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Excellent service and flight.
Cons: "Sorry the attitude to help people after a cancelled flight is sucks,"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seat space was tight"
Pros: "Impressed with food and crew!!"
Cons: "Very tight seating in the double decker near the rear particularly for a six hour flight. Food and drink were very good and check -in clerk got us on an earlier flight. Only complaint really was the lack of any leg room."
Pros: "Wonderful crew!"
Cons: "It is impossible to get comfortable in those seats."
Pros: "Seamless boarding and seat upgrade to economy premium."
Pros: "Direct boarding from business class lounge!"
Pros: "The people from British airways were incredibly helpful."
Cons: "British airways pushed the flight time which made the original connection flight from Heathrow impossible. They notified justfly the company who we used to book the flight and told them the reservation would be cancelled. Only justfly never did something about that. They did not notify us about any changes and when we arrived at the airport the lady at the counter told us we don't have a reservation even though justfly happily took our money. If it weren't for the BA staff who rebooked is through Air France we probably wouldn't have made it."
Pros: "Was just very comfortable seats and a great crew"
Pros: "I’m always impressed with the friendly and caring nature of the British Airlines staff. They always go the extra mile (or km) to make sure that you’re happy."
Cons: "The food, but who flys for the meal"
Pros: "New bedding is comfortable!"
Cons: "1. No toiletries were available for business class even on this flight. 2. There was no food choice especially if you prefer vegetarian. 3. Even if One presses a button to request for some water, no one comes to the seat; this habit of BA continues for the good part of the last decade. Reminded me why I stopped flying BA! 4. No wifi even in Business class! Someone in senior management of BA needs to fly SQ, Cathay, Qatar, Emirates and learn what can be improved. Most of these airlines have better service in economy than business on BA!"
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "Late. No other flights to Milan for 12 plus hours. Rerouted to a different airport. Rental car at Mxp so have to taxi back and forth. Missed tours etc. no apparent reason for being late. Weather was fine."

Cons: "Flight was overbooked even though we booked the flight 2 months ahead of time"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was excellent."
Pros: "Did not even fly"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled due to weather. This happens. But it was the worst customer service experience I have ever had. I spoke with four people at British Airways and five people at the booking agent. Nobody wwpuld verify anything. British Air even said at one point “you are not a customer because you booked through an agent”. That gentleman would not even transfer me to a supervisor for help. He told me “they didn’t exist”. I will never attempt to fly them again."
Pros: "6 hours, no audio port to listen to movies or music or news, poor food “Mechanical” steward service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful - much better than my experiences recently on SwissAir and TAP. That made the difference between an acceptable flight experience and a good one. Food and entertainment options were fine - nothing to write home about."
Cons: "My food tray was broken - okay to eat on but hopefully fixed soon."
Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Crew Customer sevice"
Cons: "overhead storage was inadequate. People were allowed to carry on bags to large to fit the overhead bins correctly."
Cons: "Announcement was made that flight was delayed for at least two hours and that delay might be longer or might be cancelled. Desk staff specifically said they would not help rebook until the 2 hour delay had passed. I bought a ticket on Delta amd actually flew to London."
Pros: "Nice new plane, great staff, decent comfort"
Cons: "Boarding was slow - also such a fuss made about the difference of services in each class -"
Pros: "The food on the flight was good and the wheelchair assistance was good too."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. They made sure we had timely service for all aspects of the trip. Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Food had a bit too much sodium. Not a wide enough movie selection in the entertainment."
Cons: "Had a horrible time reserving a seat ( willing to pay) because the confirmation number changed and I was not informed. Took several calls to BA, a trip to the airport and an act of god to finally mange it. Was very stressful."
Pros: "Crew members were all very nice.the flight was on time."
Cons: "The breakfast served before landing was no good,"
Cons: "Headphone jack was broken and due to an issue at baggage check in Boston I stood in line of less than 30 people for 2 hours and almost missed my flight."

Pros: "Great Service"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "On time. Decent legroom. Average movies -- a bit bland."
Cons: "Daytime flight, Boston to London. Fair breakfast. But instead of a decent snack and wine before landing 7pm, they gave chips and cookies and no wine."
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed uninterested in passengers. Hot food was honestly disgusting and there were no snacks other than a sugary chocolate bar"
Pros: "Timely boarding and arrival. Friendly service."
Cons: "The entertainment was not really good - very few movie options. Food was so-so, not really anything as good as it can be."
Pros: "meal was excellent, blankets were appreciated"
Cons: "Seats were way to cramped in economy. Center seating armrests did not elevate -- even tho there were no other passengers in my row, I could not spread out. I ended up with difficulty walking for 2 days afterwards due to T-band cramps. Please advise your passengers that they need to get up and walk every couple of hours. Common sense, but none that I apparently had."
Pros: "Nice in flight crew"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, very uncomfortable seats, poor entertainment . I called the customer service line to change my seat and the experience was terrible. The lady barely spoke English and put my on hold twice for 5 minutes to end up saying she couldn't help me. Overall, 25 minutes at the phone"
Pros: "Live counters for dinner Boarding directly from lounge"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, crew was nice, ride was smooth."
Cons: "I had a very tight layover and it took forever to get off of the plane, I nearly missed my next flight - it would be nice if short layover passengers got de-boarding priority."
Pros: "The staff was polite and the entertainment was good. The seats were ok."
Cons: "It was too cold, even after throwing the blanket over me. The breakfast was disappointing, just a small granola bar to eat, more like a snack then bfast. They did not distribute the hot towels or wipes after waking us up."
Pros: "The flight got us there safely."
Cons: "The security area was crowded and loud with a man shouting instructions you could barely hear. No one was helpful. No one was there to answer questions. An extremely unpleasant experience."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew got out of he way when I went to the bathroom."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, everyone ran to board and it wasn't clear who could board when, there was no wifi on the plane, the "screens in the headrest" were not functioning, and the ones that were were SO OLD that you could see the lines on the screen where you were supposed to touch, entertainment was terrible, and we sat on the runway for over three hours because "the left engine wasnt starting" only to discover two hours later that a latch was frozen which is why it didn't start, so they defrosted it and then we flew. WTF?!"
Pros: "Check-in Ticket printed by BA staff at the airport had the wrong gate number so I was sat in the wrong part of the terminal until I got suspicious and double checked the screens to find my flight had started boarding elsewhere. Entertainment system had a screen from the mobile phone you owned more than a decade ago. Breakfast was a Kellogg's chew bar. Staff onboard were excellent."
Cons: "they have removed the eye mask and toothbrush from the long-haul night life kit. Also the new seat have different headrests, that don't bend"
Cons: "The first beverage service on the flight was 30 min before landing."
Pros: "Food was OK, crew was nice. I loved having my own TV and access to movies, games, series, etc."
Cons: "What I really dod not enjoy is the seats. They are extremely small and tight. I literally was pressed between the two people sitting next to me. I didn't have space to even bend down to grab my bag.I could not sleep a wink and was extremely hot."
