Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"
Pros: "Amazing trip Qatar airline is great"
Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."

Cons: "Better service and better food"
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: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."

Cons: "I have a layover for 12 hrs and Qatar Airways didn't offer me a hotel."
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: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
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: "...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."
Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "There are too many announcements on the screen before you can start watching entertainment. It takes about 15 minutes."
Cons: "Being offered a cup of coffee would be nice"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late, and forced a full on sprint to get to a very distant gate in Philly for layover"
Pros: "The entertainment was good with WiFi that worked well"
Cons: "The flight delay was a hassle especially considering the estimated arrival was almost 1am. No information was provided as to why it was almost an hour late but it made for a super late night. Not to mention the seat was unbearably cramped making for an impossible inflight rest... wait, I just mentioned it"
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Cons: "Ability to download premade events apple calendar and apple wallet tickets was seemingly impossible. Send me one email with each of those items as it’s one of the number one thing customers care about"
Pros: "Flight attendant Louis was great. He was very nice and friendly. Calmed me down when I was nervous about turbulent. Great staff overall!"
Pros: "Nice personnel"
Pros: "That I could watch movies"
Cons: "How complicated it was to watch movies. Look at Netflix, they know how to do it right."
Pros: "No complaints honestly. Crew was friendly, boarding was painless, and flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was old, but it didn’t really impact my flight at all."
Pros: "The plane was late but from that point everything was fine."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and welcoming. Good entertainment system too keep busy during flight. Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Seat are definitely getting smaller and not too comfortable."
Cons: "American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline, TVs didn’t work, and no WiFi available."
Pros: "The only good thing about this flight was the free plastic cup of water they gave us right before we landed. Thanks!"
Cons: "The stewardess was outright mean! I am disabled and showed up in a wheelchair. The woman had the nerve to ask me if I was really disabled or if I was using it to cut the line. It was really horrible!"
Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "- Crew was friendly and pleasant - Good movie options"
Cons: "- No updates or reason given for why BCN to JFK flight was delayed so everyone waited around confused"
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination on time."
Cons: "The one carry-on policy was silly and included personal items. I was told to repack my purse into my backpack which was already full. The boarding staff stood over me and told me to throw stuff away in my backpack and asked why I had packed certain things. I am in the process of moving back to the US from Korea after two years so everything I had was everything I owned in the world - which included some sentimental things like a stuffed animal from my mother who passed away when I was three years old. The most infuriating part of this however was realizing that there was one other bag in my overhead bin. In fact most of the overhead bins had one to two bags and plenty of room. My repacking and humiliation was unnecessary and it was only for the morbid satisfaction of the lady at boarding demanding it. At one point I heard her talking with her coworkers about “why couldn’t they freaking listen. We announced it three times.” Well I had approached the counter prior to arrival and they told me to get back in line when I tried to ask about my purse and backpack. In additional to the frustration of all of that, I received my checked in luggage with a wheel missing. I had just bought it and now I have to ship a wheel from the vendor in South Korea or buy new luggage. Thank you guys so much for letting me know which airline to never fly with again."
Cons: "No message to call with passengers with kids to board first or any military personnel boarding first."
Cons: "My check in bag it’s lost got wrong boarding pass even when I told them I had electronic boarding pass on my phone. Really disappointed with this."
Cons: "Wanted more food. Haha!!"
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."
Cons: "very nice seats."
Pros: "great stable flight"
Cons: "my connecting flight left late"
Pros: "It Was Great. Flight Attendant Rita Was Amazing. The Flight Was Quite And Relaxing."
Cons: "That It Didn’t Last Longer. It Was A Short Trip."
Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "The food was not good on this flight."
Cons: "We Departed 3 hour late because the pilot was missing. I lost my connection in Miami and I’m waiting here for almost 24 hours to take another flight. Very bad experience!"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "OK for a short flight, we were just given water and nothing else probably because of the short duration. The IES is OK but you have to bring your own WiFi device to be able to stream their media which is free"
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and i have to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "comfortable seats, pleasant crew"
Cons: "The crew came late and the boarding was delayed by about 2h and I missed my bus connection to Boston..."
Cons: "It's AA, never again"
Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."
Pros: "The flight was quite horrible in all sorts of ways. They had no in-flight entertainment for a 10 hour flight. Food service was very underwhelming in comparison to most other major airlines'. All this was still fine but it was the horrible service I received from their baggage department that made this trip the worst I've ever had. My baggage came 7 days late and I received the worst service through their baggage customer service. Must say that I'm very disappointed in American Airlines."
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Cons: "crowded, tight even in better seat, no wifi entertainment"
Pros: "The boarding agent in Jacksonville, FL was a spirited, beautiful woman. She had everyone in the terminal cheer all the soldiers on our flight. And was very helpful to me getting a seat closer to the door as I was having horrible spasms in my back. She is what AMERICAN Airlines should be to all customers. Gate B47 on 9/30."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome. Great interior and vibe. Also great entertainment choices."
Pros: "I had ample room and I really like the biscuits"
Cons: "For one of the premier air company's. They don't know what there doing. Old planes. Super hot. Dirty airplane."
Pros: "Loved the check in process, crew was friendly and flight was great"
Cons: "The seats on this plane seemed narrower than any plan I have flown on. I have never had a seat where both my hips were touching side of seat at same time"
Pros: "great gate personnel"
Cons: "late times loading and taking off"
