Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "attentive crew. comfortable seating. good food options"
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"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Quality of food could be better Hindu meal was not as good as expected"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "The check in at Denpasar is horrible. The airport services are very inefficient."
Pros: "The crew were fab"
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: "Excellent crew and food."
Cons: "No WiFi."
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."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Best host staff"
Cons: "Passengers in front of you slamming their seats back that crushed and spilled my food all over me. Happened 3 times!!!"

Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Checking in was very lengthy and boring. More check in counters could ease the situation."
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."
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."
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."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
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: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service"
Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"
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: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
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: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."
Cons: "Seats are small and huge line for the toilet, but that is the nature of the plane and not Qatar's problem. Boarding was only good because passengers did not cooperate adn stood up when they were asked repeatedly not to."
Pros: "Amicable staff"
Cons: "Baggage was damaged. They seemed to be running low on vegetarian food (despite having selected so online) - I was compensated never the less."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Cons: "there was no flight. pay attention, kayak."
Cons: "Leave on time. Friendlier and helpful service"
Pros: "The crew was very nice throughout the flight. Very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "USB ports / charging stations , an email stating there’s free entertainment with your personal devices so that the customer is aware that he/she will need a compatible device and the United app which you’re unable to download once boarded."
Pros: "Ground crew at VPS was very helpful during a long delay."
Cons: "Delayed ( four hours) because United, or whatever regional flyer they use, did not have a first officer to fly our plane to VPS. Of course, we missed the last flight back to Amarillo. Now, I’m missing a day of work. This flight is now costing me a fortune, as well."
Cons: "Plane was dirty"
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"
Pros: "Great price — easy flight. Had an entire row to myself, so I could stretch out."
Cons: "Did not seem to be able to control the movie, to restart, or FF or REWIND."
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes were on time."
Cons: "Takeoff and first half of ORD-MCO leg was a little rough. Not the airlines fault though."
Pros: "Fast boarding good entertainment"
Cons: "Better snack choices"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "The bed, pillows and blanket, the flight attendants and the captain, who was on his final flight after 30 years."
Cons: "The dry chicken"
Pros: "The movie selection was great. I did start to feel quite ill as we were taxiing to the gate and the attendant was kind enough to open the restroom door"
Cons: "This flight was operated by United ugh!, we didn’t get the extra leg room seats we requested. The flight attendants were not very helpful"
Pros: "Departed 1 hour late, messedup plans in New York city for us."
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: "I made it safely to my destination"
Cons: "I have been flying Lufthansa for over 15 years and the service is steadily declining. It started with issues during online check-in, a delay in Frankfurt which resulted in a very tight connection. I had to leave my bags behind to make it and the ground personell was of zero help. Oh, and premier silver status is good for nothing on Lufthansa. Thanks StarAlliance."
Pros: "Liked that there were outlets"
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Cons: "Price from Duluth is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Professional, courteous flight crew. Uneventful flight. When flying at 37000 feet over an ocean, uneventful is a very good thing! :) Deboarding on arrival was quick and efficient."
Cons: "My headphone jack in the seat was broken but they offered to relocate me to a seat that worked. I stayed put and used the United app on my phone."
Pros: "Since the plane was an hour late, many with connecting flights worried about making their connections. It'd be helpful if there was a way to communicate with flights to know whether one would make the connection or not. trying to get off the plane in a hurry is stressful."
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Pros: "We flew business class and slept most of the way in very comfortable environment"
Cons: "The cabin crew insisted that we had to claim our baggage in Houston and go thru customs with it. THEY WERE WRONG! . we wasted 15 mins for luggage that we then found out did not need to be picked up as it was routed direct to Vancouver. This almost made us miss our next flight and caused us a lot of stress. We had specifically asked the crew to check as we thought it was ticketed to Vancouver but they insisted WE WERE WRONG"
Pros: "Can not think of anything"
Pros: "Passport checked twice AFTER passengers had passed main security (at the gate). Bottled water purchased AFTER passengers had passed main security (in the terminal) not permitted on the plane. Flight attendants were completely unhelpful and passengers had to find space in the overhead compartments for their carry-on luggage by themselves."
Cons: "Passport checked twice AFTER passengers had passed main security (at the gate). Bottled water purchased AFTER passengers had passed main security (in the terminal) not permitted on the plane. Flight attendants were completely unhelpful and passengers had to find space in the overhead compartments for their carry-on luggage by themselves."
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the employees of the front desk don't help anything. The service was worse."
Pros: "Flight crew friendly & helpful."
Cons: "Overbooked. No overhead storage."
Cons: "3 delays"
Pros: "I received my prepaid tickets, passed easily through the TSA checkpoint, and arrived safely on time at my final destination."
Cons: "N/A, no really, everything was enjoyable."
Pros: "Flights were fine once we got off the ground."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours, not due to weather. Really unfortunate that I had to spend an entire day of a long weekend sitting in an airport. Wasn't reimbursed at all for any of the mess, but I guess that is life!"
Pros: "We waited for 12 people that were running late from a connecting flight. It ended up being a 45 min delay and I was so impressed that they waited. I had a precious experience from a different airline that didn't wait for us, 6 of us with first class tickets, and we were only 5 min late! So, great that United waited for these passengers. And the time lost, was made up in the air."
Pros: "Crew were not very helpful in fact they were actually rude ."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I wasn't even notified."
Pros: "I had no complaint when I flew from Newark to Lima.flight attendants were nice and respectful they knew what they were doing. My travel back to the States were different. Since it was an overnight flight i expected to sleep most of the time. When I was resting suddenly one of the attendants literally scream in my ear to ask if I wanted chicken or beef??? I was like" can you see I was sleeping? To me that was rude. Also they didn't coordinate to serve drinks they took more than usual to serve. No one even ask if we want more drinks or not. Hope they do better"
Cons: "Extremely frustrated at having to wait a full hour for baggage to be delivered to baggage claim. Otherwise, fine--the typical comfortless, joyless flight that all airlines provide."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "I didn't get an email to check in (normally when I book with air canada I get an email as soon as I can check in - to check in) I like this - so I have a chance to change seat without additional cost otherwise I have to risk it when I get to the airport or I have to just accept the seat given (which is usually in the back of the plane - this time the last seat)."
Pros: "Stewardesses we're kind and helpful"
Cons: "One of the stewards spoke ill and loudly of a passenger he was irritated with as passengers were exiting the plane in Houston, which I found to be incredibly unprofessional."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Seat to myself"
Cons: "Lil bumpy but there were a lot of clouds"
Pros: "I was given TSA precheck which was great."
Cons: "I didn't get the seat I selected, rather the very last row next to the toilet. not the fault of United but hit terrible turbulence."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
Cons: "Wish I used y'all for my other flights!"
Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "That I made it home and had an open seat next to me"
Cons: "Service was unfriendly. Didn't have headphones, didn't have pillows. Seat was not much leg room. Plane had a hard landing with screeching tires, like a car that's spinning out of control. The passenger nearest me said that's the last time she's ever flying United, that she'll stick to Jawaiian from now on. I mirror her sentiments"
Pros: "TSA was quite knowledgeable and helpful being as that I hadn't flown in years the experience has changed and improved greatly."
Cons: "Airline emplyees at the boarding gate seems confused at all times, unaware of any of the circumcstances let alone the difference between a ticket, a boarding pass, a passenger, or even the actual number of seats available on the plane. The airline employees themselves were creating a paniced and hurried situation; nevertheless with both young and small children present, not exactly a comfortable, enjoyable or safe flying experience. I'm quite versed in the world of flying and travel as my father in law has held an upper level executive position with Unites Airlines for nearly 3 decades and have been actively flying as a mode of travel for well over 25 years myself. Even upon our 'delay' the demeanor of the flight crew nor the boarding agents seemed to improve or change, unless however you were in first class or were what appeared to be a fellow employee and/or family member. Furthermore I'm rather curious as to the FAA's interest in their very careless and lacking interest as to whom and passengers were boarding."
Pros: "The crew was doing their work well."
Cons: "At the boarding gate over 30 people were in line to get a seat number. I thought I had successfully selected my aisle seat online but was arbitrarily given a middle seat. I tend to use the washroom often. I had to climb over a sleeping passenger many times, without waking him up. One gentleman had some serious problems there but it was clear he was not getting any resolution. he was obviously very very frustrated. Syrupy sweet noodles?"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic despite the entertainment system wasn't working"
Cons: "The entertainment and wifi was nonfunctional for the 8 hr flight."
Cons: "Too tight. Not enough leg room. Bad service."
Pros: "Slightly more room, the person next to me was normal."
Cons: "Could not turn off screen in front of me? Didn't offer Dr. Pepper"
Cons: "We were stranded for hours and the information given to us was minimal."
