Pros: "Keeping time"

Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Cons: "Thx crew seemed s little slow (almost 2 hours) with getting us dinner for a very late night flight (10:45 pm). It just makes for not very much time to sleep."
Pros: "the place of my seat on the plane."
Cons: "The food, seat, space, & baby Control"
Cons: "You didn’t change my ticket within 24 hours of booking and I have to loose that ticket I didn’t fly back hime"

Pros: "Business class makes the entire trip much more comfortable."
Cons: "no negatives"
Cons: "I asked for water three times, three different crew members but never got the water during the flight to Dubai, when alighting that's when i asked for the water again from a crew who was manning the business class section and got it."
Pros: "Comfort and friendly crew and the food was very delicious and not forgetting the entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."
Cons: "poor service"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Pros: "I liked that there was live TV available on this flight."

Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "The attention to my two nine year old kids. They enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The washrooms are to few for the people on the flight. We were always queuing as the toilets were always occupied"
Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food, food and food"
Pros: "Traveling internationally is grueling, but Emirates business made the trip easy. After my Nairobi to Washington DC flight, I was able to have a productive day instead of sleeping the first full day upon arrival like normal."
Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "• Food was good •The flight was comfortable and I felt saved •The crew was very nice •The flight was cheap compared with service •The entertainment was excelent but you need to add more songs from Africa ."
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Pros: "The crew, overall were very alloof and disengaged. Rarely did we hear "your welcome" after saying thank you. We were made to feel as if we were interrupting their real work."
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that how consumers feel is almost as important as price. There are other choices that for air travel. It's costs nothing to smile, or to say your welcome."
Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."
Pros: "The Crew were wonderful and tried in every way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very responsive"
Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"
Pros: "I flew from Nairobi to Dubai and then to New York. Very pleasant crew, beautiful plane inside and out, excellent food in the plane. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also the Airbus 380 is just superb. Such a big bird that one."
Cons: "I am personally opposed to entertainment. I see it as the devil and the world's substitute for true joy that is only found in God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. So it is sad for me to see all the entertainment centered culture. It shows itself very much in the plane. Everyone with a screen infront of them to keep them entertained. Headphones to cut you off from the fellow next to you. Some very rotten movies on there too."

Needs to improve

N/A

Courteous! Long lines.

The in flight services is great. However, the planes do not depart on time if they are departing from other Airports except in Doha. If you have a small window with your layover, be prepared that you might miss your connecting flight. My luggage was delayed because their departing flight from a non-Doha Airport was late to arrive. Their baggage department is beyond horrible, there is no number to call and have to use Whatsapp and a reply can take more than 3 hours. I had to track the luggage by going the Atlanta International Airport and wait 3 hours for a manager with Qatar airways to first board a flight and then to get my luggage, since they do not have anyone in baggage services. For this I will never fly Qatar Airways ever again.

Flight was delayed 2 hrs.

Disorganized and lacking courtesy in Nairobi JKIA. Business travelers counter not displayed. We paid about $5000 for return tickets because they rudely locked us out saying “you are late.” They had sent us for a new 24 hour COVID test having rejected the 72 hour we had. We did not understand their logic because passengers were still in line. We were in line from 4pm, the flight was after midnight. At PHL, being American citizens, we were not required to present a 24 hour C test! We feel robbed!

Services were excellent and given on time.

Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
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."
Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."
Pros: "Very packed and no leg space"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Extra leg room only coz I was on exit isle"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. Very few selections on black movies and music. Mostly Arabic and Indians. Food was alright"
Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"
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 crew was friendly"
Cons: "Horrible flight experience and old planes without USB plug inn and no seat entertainment"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
Pros: "Dreamliner"
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "my breakfast was nasty and when i ask the crew who served me she was rude! i didnt eat my meal !"
Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "All connecting flights to US are pretty long flights (14-16 hrs) and I personally, don't want to travel and try to avoid taking those long flights."
Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "The crew were highly welcoming and nice."
Cons: "The Oryx screens had a lot of glitches and the brightness was very poor. It wouldn't let me change the language and the controller was stuck."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
