Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Everything was just great in their business class."
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Cons: "Every thing is good"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Pros: "crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "food quality needs to be better food quantity needs to be increased slightly food options need to be better entertainment system was ok but content was mediocre."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "I wish to have little more room on seat for long flight."
Pros: "Long flight, not so full, yet the crew was busy. Some green/trainee types waking us up to bring seat forward while serving meal to passengers on the rear row !! One said we dont serve wine with lunch - really! She did bring the wine 30 minutes later. But they were nice overall. Kept it clean. A+."
Cons: "Nice if they offered/served drinks before meals"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."
Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the service social excellent. The Seat were so cramp, the best sales point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Pros: "Great crew, aircraft etc"
Cons: "General - King Hamad airport is brand new and yet there still aren't enough gates to comfortably service all QA aircraft."
Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."
Pros: "Flight not full, so space to move. Great service"
Pros: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "Good attention from cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Kuwait, due to poor condition for landing in Doha and we loose connection to Bucharest."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Cons: "Food was a bit dry"
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Pros: "Food, seat OK, crew excellent"
Cons: "Immigration at Doha is appalling. More than 75 minutes waiting and very understaffed."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
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."
Pros: "Check-in counter and gate staff were really accommodating and professional."
Cons: "Cabin crew lacked training. They skipped rows, didn’t apologize, forgot to bring things when requested and had to be reminded again & lacked common courtesy. 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: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "The stewards were very attractive, the entertainment was plenty of movie choices."
Cons: "The food was terrible, the seats were extremely uncomfortiable."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."
Pros: "The seats could have been a bit roomier."
Cons: "I paid $68 to pick up seats on airplane, but they didn't give us the right seat numbers that we wanted"
Pros: "The flight was 9hr each leg which is not baf of elder people. The food was fine. Entertainment was good. Austin to london flight was a little spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "You need to display gate information for connecting flight well in advance for thr elder people to get to the gate on time. We had the gate information displayed just 1 hour before departure. London to hyderabad flight was too cold. If the temperature was adjusted above 72 degrees it would have been appreciated. London to hyderabad flight was cramped up. Not at all spacious, my knees started to hurt after the flight."
Pros: "The crew at HYD airport is good people."
Pros: "Selection of films was good"
Cons: "BA business class is getting tired and very odd configuration. Ran out of choices for food and breakfast looked like there was not enough to go round. Overnight flight, but food not served for about hour and half, and breakfast served 2 hours before landing."
Pros: "The service in the Business Class section on British Airways was phenomenal"
Cons: "BA need to stop the silly practice of boarding according to status - it’s inefficent and leaves me with the impression that BA is obsessed with pseudo hierarchy."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "Good food and great crew!"
Cons: "Being 6'2" is the worst when traveling economic."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flights attendants attentiveness and friendliness. The food was surprisingly good (I enjoyed a nice curry dish); we appreciated the portions as well as snacks on our long flight. The music and video selection also made for a much more pleasant flight. The plane was newer and offered features like USB charging ports. Would definitely fly British Airways again!"
Cons: "My only complaint would be the tightness (closeness of rows) of the seats. But it’s coach, so not much can be done there. They were at least comfortable and reclined quite a bit."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our trip to Vienna from London was less appealing than the one from Montreal to London. No food, no entertainment and seat space was cramped which reminded me of my Air Transat experiences."
Pros: "The crew was kind and professional, cosy seats with enough place for the legs... Good content in entertainment system."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Food was good , very comfortable seats and the time we departed to the time we arrive I will rate it 10 out of ten I felt as if I was on a 2 hours flight . It’s was just one of those wonderful BA flight I can’t forget"
Cons: "It’s was just the hassle to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 with luggage but made it all in all"
Cons: "You get onboard and they do not even serve you water!!! You have to pay for even water!!! I was thirsty during the 2 hour long flight and really PISSED!!!"
Pros: "The crew is friendly. Relative to some other flights I've had, the Economy section is not terrible."
Cons: "If you are fairly tall, don't expect to be able to catch some sleep. The earphone socket is located right next to your leg, so expect to break your cable."
Pros: "Boarding efficient and polite"
Cons: "Old plane. If there was food they didn’t offer (said they had drinks) . When we asked they said we missed it. No WiFi or entertainment . Seats without modern headrests."
Pros: "Boarding was different than told. All boarded from front. Routine short flight"
Pros: "Friendly and quick service."
Cons: "Waiting for a space at the terminal."
Cons: "Tight seating altho many open at rear so was able to move there"
Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My onboard entertainment system's headphone didnt work. I Was told there is nothing they can do about it, which is fair enough, but i dont think it was fair on me. People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."
Cons: "increasingly reducing space. person sitting next to me overweight and made it uncomfortable for me during the entire trip."
Pros: "The flight was able to board early and arrive early. Very friendly service, enjoyable flight."
Pros: "On time and staff"
Cons: "Too little space for seating!"
Pros: "The re-routed , 5 hr late, flight (to Gatwick) was comfortable but we were left to track down BA reps to get a hotel voucher at 01:30 with the airport shut down."
Cons: "Abandoned at Gatwick after midnight."
Pros: "The crew were super helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Food was not the best, the leg room was ridiculously small and the entertainment system had some issues, but all in was a nice trip"
Pros: "I made it finally to Prague."
Cons: "British Airways did not have a plane available in timely manner. They were jerking us around with the departure time. They changed the departure time over 6x. The range was zero to 3 hours late. Finally, we departed about 80 minutes late. The blame was on weather but I did not believe them. I looked from the window - weather was fine with slight drizzle and about 3000 ft overcast. Also, the flight to Prague had no food but mostly no drinks no sodas. I'm questioning their business practices when they were asking about 5 pounds for a drink. I will fly with some other airlines next time."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. The seats were cramped."
Pros: "Nonstop flight to London from Orlando"
Cons: "My special meal request was ignored on both my outbound and return flight. The plane was dirty and my seat was worn. The technology on both flights was anequated and in much need of updating."
Cons: "The BA flights I flew on were not new. Lie flat seat is not Best in the class. The movie collection is not uptodate. British airways in flight service levels are relatively inferior quality. The cabin and toilets were not spick-and-span. Toilets were not kept clean from time to time. The toileterries provided are not high in desirability quotient and can be improved in at least one leg of the international flights."
Pros: "The crew The nice and friendly staff at the airport"
Cons: "Assigning one luggage per traveller"
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Otherwise great flight"
Pros: "The food was tasty."
Cons: "flight was 1 hour and 40 minutes late. We sat on a hot plane waiting for take off and the temperature remained too high during the flight. Very little water was offered. Seating in coach was very tight."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "Quiet, adequate legroom, comfortable climate and seat."
Cons: "Food and drinks only for purchase. Would have been nice to at least have been offered a glass of water."
Cons: "During the checkin from Rome to SFO for some reason I did not received assigned seats to the flight # 285 from Heathrow to SFO. When I came to customer service - customer support said that they sold more tickets than airplane has. I was VERY disappointed. A a result they put me to the next flight 287 that was scheduled 3 hours later. They gave me money compensation. I would recommend British Airways not to work like that. From my side I will never use this airline company any more. Thanks."
Cons: "I was sleeping during meal time and when I woke up an hour later they told me that my meal was now below the temperature that they're allowed to serve it because it's dangerous. so I got bread instead. It's ridiculous either they serve me half the meal still frozen and the other half too hot too touch or it's considered unsafe."
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Again, no free wifi in the XXI century. Hello !!!"
Cons: "Due to US State Dept travel alert for US Citizen to Europe until Sept 1, I had to postpone the flight. Delta waived the $300 cancelation fee due to the terrorism alert to rebook two other ticket I had purchased. BA said they would but I can not receive confirmation of this until I rebook in the fall. Dr. David Miller Dmiller@Illinois.edu"
Cons: "Not sure if I am more unhappy with Kayak for not warning me or British Airways for charging me €75 for eached checked baggage. Even a sofa or tea cost money on this flight. Should think twice before booking this airline!"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance was not provided to both the passengers , even though it was requested during reservation. Baggage was lost and did not make it to Bangalore"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I had requested a wheelchair and never got one either way. Slowly but I walked it! Thank god I was not completely disabled."
Pros: "Service and screen tv"
Pros: "Convenience to return to Heathrow with enough time to navigate customs and security and make my connection. Fare price was good"
