Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "More care and warmth"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "Extraordinarily care taken On board. Very impressed with Qutar Airways. Excellent"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Entertainment very good."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The plane was new."
Cons: "There was a limited choice in movies. Boarding and deplaning took a while."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "Staff, service,"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort, very long flight"
Cons: "Unable to reserve any seats so ended up with the family split all over the plane"
Cons: "everything. see what i mentioned above. i will not book through your company again"

Cons: "No complaints great flight"
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: "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: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."
Pros: "great service from flight attendnants."
Cons: "Old aircraft for flight from Doha to Nairobi, no personal entertainment etc."
Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."
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 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 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."
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: "Crew was nice. Food was excellent."
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."
Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"
Pros: "Quick boarding, semi- spacious seats, decent snack food"
Cons: "Not much to dislike, but I still will NEVER fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Best thing is 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "Food and service in economy could be better. Nothing special about Qatar."
Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."
Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Pros: "The boarding and deplaning were well organized and handled very professionally"
Cons: "I had an aisle seat that was hard as a rock. The cabin crew repeatedly slammed into my shoulder with their hips and carts and never once excused themselves or asked if I was okay. The PA was muddy and difficult (near impossible) to understand."
Cons: "The seats were the most terrible seats I have ever experienced in all my years of flying. I'm a small person and even I couldn't get comfortable. The seats were curved in the wrong way and didn't recline enough for a 3 hour flight. The crew made the boarding and deplaning process worse by not paying attention to what was going on in the plane."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Turbulence, but other than that it was quick"
Cons: "Not sitting for an hour on the runway with no A/C."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was ok. Seats were nice"
Cons: "It was good. I’m satisfied"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "This was our second trip with United in the month of December and once again we were delayed. This time time not quite as bad as the first time ."
Cons: "Up graded seat but didn't get to board till last."
Pros: "An early departure!"
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: "Very smooth flight - not crowded - checkin was perfect!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "the crew was very friendly and the flight was smooth"

Pros: "I like still having an option at non- stop, direct flight, from Amarillo to Denver."
Cons: "Small plane. But flight is short."
Cons: "Poor customer service.Flight was delayed and the employees at the counter where not helpful at almost missed my connection if the crew in Jersey weren't waiting for our flight to arrive.Since then I try my best not using United to flight"
Cons: "Leg room! Nice staff, smooth ride and landing."
Pros: "The plane landed safely"
Cons: "The whole culture around United is aggressively unfriendly, a fitting description would be "the dark skies of united" it seems like their employees (crew,ticket agents, gate crew etc) are miserable and grudgingly go through their paces"
Pros: "Boarding, flight time"
Pros: "Good smooth flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "It's all about spending extra money. Not enough leg room for tall people unless you spend an extra 40-70 or whatever it was. Need to spend extra money for any food you want, was only offered a small bag of pretzels. Need to waste money to watch any tv or movies, so no free entertainment."
Pros: "Great experience."
Cons: "Took some time to get claim luggage."
Pros: "Flight down was without delay and comfortable"
Cons: "Flight back was delayed due to a comedy of errors with Bahama over uploading potable water."
Cons: "More legroom is needed."
Cons: "Why charge people for entertainment and snacks put it in the cost of flight , many people onboard complained about this it's 2017 how united could compete with virgin JetBlue southwest baffles me. I surely will not fly united ever again"
Pros: "Fflight was smooth"
Cons: "Missed connection due to delay rebooking took me out of way from LA to Denver and the to Seattle. Arrived 8 hrs after expected/anticipated arrival."
Cons: "No help from United airlines when landing there for connecting flight. Asked 2 people how to get from terminal c to terminal a and no offered much help. We did ask a pilot and he suggest s the air train which was a horrible idea. We had to re enter and go through security again. We almost missed the flight thank goodness the plane was late so we barely made it as they were closing the doors. It was a horrible experience. The worst by far"
Pros: "But as far as I know, nobody was beaten up by your goons. From now on, I will fly United only as a last result."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Efficient and courteous service, organized boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi could be cheaper!"
Pros: "Two really nice flight attendants."
Cons: "You had two excellent crew members and one who was in fact a little rude- was startled because usually flight attendants are very friendly. It made me even say something to the other crew member, who herself was incredibly nice, and eased the situation. Also, it was laughable how much leg room I had. I am not sure that I will fly united again for that reason. I normally don't ever write reviews, but the amount of space given was absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "The airport employees and the flight itself were fine. We had one gentleman who came over joked with us a bit while still helping us. The flight also seemed smooth."
Cons: "The boarding seemed extra slow and then we arrived at our seats and the drunk idiot who was removed from the flight causing the ridiculous delay was in them. Our friends took unused seats and we used theirs. I told him to calm down and his friends did repeatedly as well. By the time we left the airport we were 2 hours behind."
Cons: "Maintenance delay, asked attendant to have the gate wait for a few of us to board and she seemed more worried about me being in my seat during our 30 minute wait on the runway after a 15 minute delay"
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Pros: "It was alright"
Cons: "It was united I should have used LAN"
Pros: "Food was not great. Not enough recline in economy to really get any rest."
Cons: "Awful. No crew. Horrible accommodations."
Pros: "a lot of the times the planes are freezing, would like to see pillows and blankets offered more in economy"
Pros: "Having movies is the best, followed by pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Stressed and unfriendly attendants (except 2). Didn't ask meal preference, just gave me chicken and I had to ask for switch. Would say things like "I don't have time" and "we'll do it later when the cart comes around". Only had 1 drink service, I don't think they made it all the way to my row. Very different than flight from USA to Paris."
Pros: "Short lflight"
Cons: "The customer service . Delayed flight everytjme I fly!"
Pros: "Ontime service"
Pros: "Free tv on the plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Poor communication about the flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay due to improper fuel configuration"
Cons: "After having several flights with international airlines while in Thailand for the last 2 weeks, it was quite a disappointment to spent 12 hours on this UA flight. There was a 6-8 hour period during our flight were flight attendants did not ask or even consider walking the isles and asking the passengers if they needed any water or anything else. During several flights in Thailand, the attendants were constantly catering to every passengers' needs. The difference between the flight attendants from Bangkok to Tokyo compared to Tokyo to DC was worlds apart. The Japanese attendants were as friendly as ever and took care of all the passengers needs. The flight attendants were flat out rude. There was once event on this flight that I could not believe. A child of 5-7 years old had to go to the restroom with his mother. The flight attendant was collecting trash from our meal. Even though she knew the child was behind her and needed to go to the restroom, she would not stop collecting trash, move her cart so that the boy and his mother could get to the restroom. Instead, she continued collecting trash and made the boy wait until she was done. I feel embarrassed for the foreigners who were on this flight and this was their first impression of America and Americans. The main meal that was served was a breaded chicken patty served with a slurry of questionable gravy, rice, and a roll. I received better food on multiple 1 hour flights while in Thailand. The comfort level was what you would expect from most American airlines-tight and cramped. I will never book with United for another international flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, the in cabin service was perfect, and the blanket provided was a sweet gift"
Pros: "Everything about the Casper Airport was wonderful. It was very small and passenger friendly. Ran right on time. Great flight."
Cons: "United airlines plane from SLC to SFO departed 45 minutes late due to maintenance issue. Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and welcoming. I had enough space in the plane to feel comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and you had to pay for entertainment. Also, there were no headphones in case you wanted to use them. The kiosk attendants had to be flagged down for assistance."
Pros: "I liked the service. It's good in general but, looking for better."
Cons: "I didn't like the service sometimes. Especially the hostesses, they are too old. The plane was too small when I flied from Austin to San Francisco. Thank you"
Pros: "The seat that I got"
Cons: "I would expect having a entertainment screen on my seat on a almost 6 hr flight in 2016!!! Wouldn't you????"
