The Doha airport is a disaster. We almost got late in boarding bcuz of the construction going on. Then, the flight experience is not that good. Seating space is tight.

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

My experience at checkin counter at Amritsar airport was not good. The lady at the desk didn’t allow me to carry 1 kg extra in carry on trolley. In 15 years of flying experience with different airlines, trolly weight was checked for first time. Looks like Qatar Airways has different rules based on the countries.

The worst people to deal with in gatar airport after I miss my flight they plam me and 5 people with me after the air plain delayed us from making to the next flight to the people off gater the forner the one you hiar to run the airport they do more damage don’t fly with gatar airlines

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "No comments."
Cons: "No comments."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
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: "Qatar is the BEST First Class airline in the world."
Cons: "Everything was amazing!"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
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"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour 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 plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "My baggage was lost!"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Pros: "Very good crew"
Cons: "8 hr layover in Doha"
Cons: "No food on board!! Staff says it got over when i have selected my food selection!!"
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "The planes were nice and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Every single flight we were on was delayed, with no explanation. The food was good on the plane, but almost every meal option I wanted was out by the time the crew got to my seat."
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: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"
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."
Pros: "all"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
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: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"
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: "Lo mejor de estos vuelos es sin dudad el servicio del personal de vuelo, son muy amables y se esmeran en mantener cómodo a todo el mundo, te dan botellitas de agua, jugo, hielo, lo que pidas."
Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston. They said I have to pick it up only at baggage claim..and I had to carry my baby with 2 hand luggages all the way through immigration until I reached baggage claim...very disappointed with this. ..Other airlines handed the baby stroller as soon as you got off from the flight.."
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: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The sandwich"
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly"

Cons: "Aircraft is worn out (Seats, interior, etc.). Could use some maintenance"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Ticketing staffs should and can be more co considerate. Average rating at best, and sometimes very rude."
Pros: "Good movies good food"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."
Pros: "Same."
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "The Airbus is such an extremely "customer oriented' airplane."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "Stewards and stewardesses were friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Food quality and robust Entertainment options"
Cons: "1. Economy seat rows too close together making seat reclines very intrusive. 2. Also, flight attendants did not request people to sit up during meals which made eating very difficult in my case. 3. Bathrooms were very dirty during the last 1/3 of the flight and remained so, including no toilet paper and paper towels. 4. No second serving for refreshment beverages during flight."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight attendants were great, food was good, flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Love how the crew always take care of you and are very nice."
Cons: "Seats can be a bit better"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "Harassment caused in providing wheel chairs for boarding Second flight to NY fm Istanbul. For two of us only one wheel chair was provided that too after making us stand for an hour as no seating arrangement s were available after landing from Mumbai."
Pros: "The only things that going for Turkish Airline is the cabin crew (lord knows they try), food and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 2 hrs, that in itself is not an issues, traffic delays do happen. However, the fact that captain choose not to run air conditioning to save fuel and main cabin, even after numerous requests, was 95 degrees for 2 hrs combined with the fact that airline did not submitted travel information to US Border Protection that also added another 1.5 hrs to clear customs is totally unacceptable... Although THY has the most direct route to/from Moldova from Houston, in the future, I'll most likely will spend more money and more time just to avoid it..."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. We were told we would make the flight which we didn't. We had to spend 12 hours at the airport to await the next plane to Batumi. We were given lunch vouchers but what it applied to was substandard"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Pros: "The lay down seats."
Cons: "Wish they came through the cabin with more beverage services. Twice I had to go back to the galley to get a drink."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Pros: "Great Planes. Good service o the air."
Cons: "Their service on ground needs a lot of work. From luggage check in to attitude of the staff is horrible. Specially in Turkey the service is so frightening that you hope you have your luggage and no need to go to find help. If you need help you are on your own. No one will take responsibility and help you."
Pros: "Airplane and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late so we missed our connection."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."
Pros: "I liked it that I was able to check in online and choose my seat."
Cons: "My trip from Zurich to Istanbul would have been okay if it weren't for the screen that was not working. It did not work and I hated not having to do anything else besides eat and sleep."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Cons: "They changed flights after booked. Went from a 1 hour lay over to 18 hour lay over in Istanbul. We cancelled and booked different flight at much higher rate. Got all tangled up in hotel changes, really created a mess. Likely not use that airline in future."
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Good service, good food!! I will use Turkish air again."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full but they packed the front of the plane. I finally moved since there was a huge man in the middle seat. First seat I move to, the woman thought she owned the entire row. Guess she bought a business class seat and the flight attendants moved her to her own row. Everyone else who had a row to themselves followed suit. I finally find a seat but it wasn't was attached correctly and was falling off. Was uncomfortable to whole 10hrs."
Pros: "I liked the movie choices"
Cons: "The second pasta dish with red sauce gave me food poisoning. I threw up on the plane, at the airport, 9' the way home, and when I was at home. I had to miss work the next day due to your food. Also, there was not enough trash collection service"
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "Crew was great, movie selections were good."
Cons: "No warning or info when we hit a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "I like Turkish Airlines. The flight was good. I thougt only food was somewhat not as good as usual. I flew with TA many times and the food offerings always had stood out from other air companies. In general it was great flight."
Pros: "The quality of service is always on top, kindness and help is always when you ask..."
Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Cons: "It felt like the flight attendant had a long day. Chairs weren't super comfortable."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Easy, fast, simple. Not crowded."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Customer service on the phone."
Cons: "Delays all day on delta. On my way out and on the return flight."
Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"
Pros: "Fly attendants were very professional"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were awful .how many can squeeze in. .horrible"
Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"

Cons: "Crew could have been better"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to Tsa"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't change flights on the day of travel"
Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Could not print subsequent AeroMexico flight segment boarding pass."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight attendants were courteous. There were snacks."
Pros: "Smooth quick flight."
Cons: "I had to rebook as opposed to it being done by Delta. Cancelation was due to equipment."
Pros: "Flew in First Class. Felt very pampered"
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Cons: "The airplane was freezing cold. I had on a sweater and jacket and was unbearably cold. The entire plane was miserable. There weren’t any blankets either...this is not the"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Pros: "The cookies on board were tasty."
Cons: "There was no gate agent until another passenger went all the way to another gate to retrieve one. The flight kept getting delayed, but no one made any announcements about why or even that there was a delay. Passengers just kept noticing the time change on the flight info board. On board, if you didn't buy into Delta's classist system of paying for an "extra comfort" seat (which, by the way, is a regular seat), you were seated in a tiny shoved in extra row where even my 8 year old's knees bumped the seat in front of us while seated. I will never fly Delta again, particularly with them being one of the priciest options."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."

The entertainment was nonexistent, no food, not very comfortable

We’ve been border but waited 3 hours before pushback due to technical issues. Good can be improved, especially the hot meal.

a

The flight was wonderful. The crew was polite and professional. The aircraft was clean and new.

Luggage handling. Arrived in Johannesburg without my luggage. Communication regarding lost luggage is basically non-existent.

A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.

Nice,o time,and great foods and services.

Pros: "El entretenimiento"
Cons: "Demasiadas mascotas sin posibilidad de descanso. Un gato en ej asiento del frente que no dejó de hacer ruido y dos asientos atrás un pero en la misma situación. Debería tomar más medidas para el viaje de mascotas"
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Cons: "Advertised October Pink products but did not have them for breast cancer support"
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "The Delta flight service was much better than the Air France flight I took on the previous leg."
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived early. The crew were all courteous and kind even to the man who was sitting next to me who seemed quite demanding."
Cons: "I am small but the seats seemed a bit too tight. The plane itself seemed a bit outdated."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Pros: "The entertainment has great selection. The crews were much friendier than the flight from SFO to Paris."
Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Cons: "Old plane."
Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Pros: "25 min ahead schedule!!!"
Cons: "Cabin space, too narrow rows."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Didn’t have the meal I ordered Got in 30 min early but no gate for us. We waited over 80min on tarmac to deplane I paid extra for an exit seat but there was no indication when I did that there would be walls for armrests and that made it very uncomfortable for me"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Todo muy bien Volvería a viajar con ellos."
Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."
Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Pros: "The service and food were excellent plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection, and staff all very friendly. Food was pretty mediocre - main course was nice but the breakfast especially left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Cons: "Flight was broken we had to get off. I had to book a hotel room was so tired"
Cons: "Try not to loose my luggage next time full of my family’s Christmas gifts. It was a short flight and a giant Leopard print bag. Crew was rude, didn’t wake me to let me sit up. She just shoved my seat forward"
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Not a full flight"
Cons: "Not unhappy"
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"

Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"
Pros: "Great entertainment. Ok food and drinks. Newer777."
Cons: "Long flights are pure torture in these small seats."
Cons: "Delays and more delays"
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Comfort is ok."
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Smooth flight with no issues at all"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"

Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Pros: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "BA personnel were nice on phone, but couldn't help me check in when online systems were confused by BA/AA booking. I had to check in at the AA desk at RDU. Fortunately I already had a seat assignment and allowed plenty of time."
Cons: "Difficulty checking in online."
Pros: "Previous flight was awful but this flight was good. Everything was new and felt like first class."
Cons: "Remodeling old plans if not getting new ones"

Pros: "On time. Helpful at check-in and friendly staff on board."
Pros: "Worst customer service I have ever experience"

Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Safe trip"
