Pros: "Everything!!!"

Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."

Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."

Cons: "Qatar airways should allocate separate seating for families. The crowd was generally composed of labour from Qatar and other middle eastern countries making the flight an unpleasant experience. It felt like going to a factory shift at 4 in the morning."

Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"

Pros: "It was exellent but long flight keep it up!"
Cons: "Everything was above avarage"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable entertainment was nice food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was great, very professional and capable."
Cons: "I am about 6'1" and 195 lbs, would love to have had a bigger seat."

Cons: "Baghdad is still an armpit. Doha is very nice. Kuwait not so nice. Qatar airlines has the best service I have ever had in 35 years of air travel."

Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"

Cons: "The electronics ban on US-bound flights was handled poorly in Doha, resulting in multiple passes through the security check for many passengers, including two in my party. It left a bad impression that lingered, unfortunately."

Pros: "Like your six seats in a business class row compared to Emirates, Air India and very awkward seats of Etihad. Qatar business class staff also tad better than others."

Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"

Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The airport has some inconvenient that thier waiting room there is no bathroom and water once you behind the security check no life access so people who has illes there is no life support like an water and bathroom i was thinking it is like usa. All the middle East airport has some inconvenient they built good airport but important is mixed and there should be protest international for travel convenient"
Cons: "There is bathroom and water access in the airport"

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "Being able to ear what you want and when you want it made my flight so much more enjoyable. You can ask for anything on the menu and the flight attendants are so attentive."
Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."

Pros: "Good service from cabin crew"
Cons: "Seat is quite small compared to other flight"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food quality - lot's of sugar in child meal. Entertainment system slow. We were forced to move the seats into upright position half an hour before landling on a night flight."

Cons: "The layover was too long"

Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

Cons: "Flight attendants raising shades so that light was in your face. Blocking aisles near bathrooms"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Pros: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."
Cons: "My first time on Qatar, I'd heard only good things. The food was surprisingly bad, tasteless or bad tasting. Sure I'd take Qatar over most other airlines, but it seems maybe there are cutting corners on their food."

Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Pros: "What they get right: The planes are comfortable and the flight attendants are attentive and kind. The price is okay, and there are plenty of flights from Doha to Manama."
Cons: "What they get wrong- Taking the Doha to Manama flight is like riding the commuter bus from New Jersey to New York City in the U.S. You get there, but that's about it. The waiting area is too small for the number of flights and quantities of people processing through. Many passengers were sitting on the floor while awaiting their flights. Not classy. The boarding process is tedious, and, inefficient, with people cutting in line, others trying to re-negotiate seating while getting their boarding cards scanned, and others not allowing room for additional passengers on the bus that takes you out to the plane. They get on, and block the doorway, so that they can be the first off when we get to the plane. It seems like no one is interested in making this quick and easy, so we can leave on time. That's the other thing. How can a local airline, named for its country, not leave on time? We were delayed about 20 minutes, waiting on people. Just leave them behind! Stick to schedule!"

Pros: "free good"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I had to pay two tickets for same flight from Islamabad to San Francisco and going from San Francisco to Islamabad it’s been cancel and I am fighting for my money back they don’t want to refund it"

Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"

Pros: "Great flight."

Pros: "So so"
Cons: "Food is junk."

Cons: "More meals during the flight would have helped. Also the snacks had limited variety(most of them chocolate) and not enough fruit available."

Cons: "They delayed the flight over entertainment system and that caused me to miss my connection"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"

Pros: "Stewardesses were great"
Cons: "It took them 1.5hours to give me my luggage. Everyone else had left. They kept making me go back and forth saying it was coming but nothing. This had never happened before and was ridiculous given it was a direct flight"

Pros: "The a380 business class was the greatest flying experience I ever had. Second to NONE! Must try and book if possible. I fly a LOT and this was just absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Nothing really! Although they do run out of food options so sit as far in the front as possible."

Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "I was specifically asked for the vegetarian food n mentioned that I am highly allergic to the eggs....in spite of that no vegetarian food was served till I asked the staff about my food...i was told that there is no vegetarian food for me....n at last I was served with very basic food .....not at all good...i could not eat that n stayed hungry n could not even sleep due to headache n acidity This FOOD experience was extremely Disappointing"

Cons: "Food, quality of the food"

Pros: "I find the A380 in the Emirates configuration to be more comfortable than other planes/configs."
Cons: "Wish we had a few more choices like carnatic music and an expanded list of movies."

Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."

Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."

Pros: "Horrible experience!!!!"
Cons: "1. Emirates has only one piece option. With Laptop bag weighing about almost 5kgs, you are left with just 2kgs which the carry bag itself would weigh. Not sure, how Emirates is getting away with this discriminatory attitude, while rest of airlines do allow -Carry on + a personal item. 2. There is no check on the carry-on weight at SFO airport. While in DXB, they entice customer to buy all duty free and then when it comes to boarding, you will be 'shocked'. No more than 10kg allowed. 3. You will be directed to read instructions before boarding. Then the corruption deal starts...read point 4 4. The man will say, remove anything in excess of 10kg or pay extra luggage, knowing very well, that people buy duty free at DXB. 5. Once you start negotiating, then the deal-making starts... 6. I managed it. More on Facebook review..."

Cons: "Seat bookings in just fly are messed up. Kayak took me to just fly for the bookings. The seats for the the 16hr+ flight on just fly we're window seats however at time of check-in I got middle seats in the center 4 seats. It was the worst flight booking experience on kayak so far."

Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "Good serevice"
Cons: "food provided is not good. All western style most passengers are from Asia"

Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, flight was very comfortable with great entertainment options. Attentive staff!"

Cons: "Seat wouldn’t recline Checked with Air hostess She said it cannot be fixed So travel 15 hrs in pain"

Pros: "Non"
Cons: "They treat you what kind a color your Skin color"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "- Seats in bad shape - Dirty bathrooms. Ran out of soap and other supplies and did not refill - Horrible food - Cabin crew was not friendly"

Cons: "The wifi wasn't working throughout the journey."

Cons: "I didn't get hotel and the staff in the airport were too strict and mean"

Cons: "restroom water not available, not so well maintained air hostess didnt come on after pressing help button seat overall bad experience and surprising from emirates"

Cons: "I requested the waiter(Asian) to serve me a non-egg breakfast if there were any remaining. He curtly told me that if I had not pre-booked the non-egg breakfast he could not provide me. Few minutes later I made the same request to another waitress and she quickly provided me the non-egg breakfast."

Pros: "Smoothness of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "i liked everything on the trip. it was great. gulalai"

Cons: "During flight from San Fransico to Delhi,flight was to changed at Dubai for Delhi.There was no information on board as new the "gate no" at Dubai for Delhi."

Pros: "Crew is friendly and good service"
Cons: "Emirates did not honer the cost of the Hotel night in Dubai. Neither Kayak, nor Emirates advised us to book the hotel within 24 hours of flight time. We called Kayak, they have Zero customer service. We called Emirates, they blamed it on Kayak. They said that they should have advise us to book the Hotel at least 24 hours before departure. We ended up paying for our Hotel and meals and it should have been coveted by the Airline. Randa"

Pros: "The entertainment systems is good a lot of choices."
Cons: "The toilet are so dirty, nobody cleaning them for the entire trip that's more than 15hours, unacceptable for the price they charged."

Cons: "The Crew was very inexperienced and had difficult time in managing the passengers. The food also below par!"

Pros: "The food Staff is superb My niece enjoyed the most. The crew clicked photos with her and made her moments memorable."

Pros: "Excellent service in flight and nice food"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was light and was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was light. Even with that the crew seemed checked out. Did not come by to offer additional drinks or snacks. I noticed some unprofessional physical contact between few Crew members."

Pros: "Very Classy all around!"

Pros: "Roomy and very comfortable A380 flight is great"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"

Cons: "this experience with emirates was super duper bad. I was travelling to India as my dad had passed away that morning on 9/11. Bad service, no attention paid to the flight attendant button, water provided after 45 min....after 2 fligh attendants came by and said they would bring water. i provided verbal feedback and they were extra nice to me then...brought me crackers , chiocolates...etc etc...but it was just to calm me down. I went and got my own food from the kitchen area as I had a splitting headache, I was traveling to india as my dad had passed away on sep 11th morning. They gave me the same dinner mushroom and peas for vegetarian snack. Then they exchanged it after I had waited for so long. IT was just ridiculous servide and"

Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and food was good."

Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."

Pros: "Excellent service, food and media."

Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"

Pros: "Fresh food, customer service"

Pros: "I could not get the barding pass to chennai at seatle itself"

"All good"

Cons: "My backpack zipper got caught in another passenger luggage in the over head holdall. The crew member tried to separate it while the owner of the other bag complained about me like I’d done it rather than it being the bags moving themselves during the flight. The flight attendant ripped my bag zipper in order to separate the bags. The other passengers bag was not damaged. He tried to fix it but dropped the zip and then pretended it was okay putting it back in the holdall. Kind of unhappy that my new back pack was damaged"

Pros: "The crew were lovely, yet efficient."
Cons: "The seat pad in World Traveler Plus is very thin, making it uncomfortable after about 30 minutes, let alone 10+ hours. Dinner was good but breakfast was sub par."

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Food trays left for 45 mins. This was premium economy Check in took forever even though I checked in 3 hours before departure. Didn't seem to be any staff near self serve check in screens to advise passengers."

Pros: "the food was really good and the service was good."
Cons: "the entertainment system for the trip from lhr to acc was a bit outdated"

Cons: "Simply everything"

Pros: "Love the A380 it’s smoothness quietness and spaciousness. The experienced mature crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"

Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"

Pros: "The crew was so incredible, the safety video was funny, the food was DELICIOUS, the accommodations were above and beyond. Comfortable, great movies, relaxing. First international flight and now I’ll always use British Air"
Cons: "Nothing. This has been the best flight experience I’ve ever had."

Cons: "BA is löst. This whole experience for a first class flight was a joke. SF no Lounge, food terrible, london lounge max BC level. LH 2x better, they need change"

Pros: "The free drinks."
Cons: "The stink of curry throughout the plane and the other choices of meal being gluten laden pasta and gluten laden crackers, muffins, and bread for breakfast. I am very glad I ate in SFO before leaving or I’d have been starving by the time e arrived in LHR."

Pros: "Boarding staff & crew were fine"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable I have ever travelled in - this plane definitely has the worst seat width, leg & reclining space that I have seen. I have been in long-range (16 hours) flights that were more comfortable than this. If anything fell on the floor, I couldn't retrieve, I couldn't sleep at all & had contorted joints & a body ache when we landed. To design such tiny seats is truly inhumane."

Pros: "That I got to London..."
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for two hours because of engine issues, and there is no air in coach in their planes. It was 90 degrees in there! For two hours! The other classes had air and we had none, it was a health violation for sure."

Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "New booking system where you cannot select seats without paying more money is outrageous. Will fly Virgin next time. Seats did not recline Flight left three hours late. Nearly missed connection. Very stressful experience"

Pros: "Getting our bags through on a tight connection - great job Staff were helpful in finding a safe place for my bassoon."
Cons: "inability to select seats without having to pay vast extra amounts of money is totally unacceptable. Ended up initially separated from my daughter and then on seats that did not recline. Flight left three hours late, nearly missed connection Next tine will fly Virgin. They look after their passengers!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "The size of the plane"
Cons: "Leg space."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We waited in the plane for 5 hours and ended with a cancelled flight. We were rebooked out of Oakland the next day. Missed an entire day in Rome for our honeymoon, lost a night at a hotel, and lost money on a tour."

Pros: "Waitied.. in the okanevdir 40 minutes! Because couldn’t get the jolly to work for the steps Had to walk steps with my elderly mother with our carry on in the pouring rain.. then miss our flight to Milan had to wait 3 hours for the next flight ... which was also delayed."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I had to throw away some very expensive facial creams/cosmetics on my connecting British Airway flight from London to MAdrid. I suddenly had to fit everything I had into a very small bag. They said it was policy, but I had been on a British Airway flight the whole time! Why was it allowed when I boarded?"

Pros: "I like that we didn't crash"
Cons: "They lost my and 5 other persons luggage! British Airways sucks!"

Pros: "Crew was nice. SFO-LHR was great entertainment."
Cons: "They lost my bag! I was waiting for this ski trip for a year, and they lost my snowboard bag. It is still in London and I'm at Avoriaz, waiting for a driver that god knows when will come."

Pros: "Only one layover in London"
Cons: "Emirates, Etihad flights I thought were a bit newer and better in terms of comfort and entertainment with more charging ports etc"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment wasn't bad there was a pretty good option of movies and shows."
Cons: "The food was gross. The curry chicken I got looked like paste over disgusting rubber rice. The breakfast didn't taste great either. It gave me stomach pain."

Pros: "Crew were good , food was ok."
Cons: "Flight delayed again so both flights to USA and return were delayed... not a great experience . Entertainment took a cou0le of hours to sort, they had to keep resetting it"

Cons: "Fresh food"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The screen was pretty big but quality pretty bad. Looked like 80s CRT. Also bad selection. Luckily it was a red eye flight."

Pros: "Liked that my wife and I could have a two seat row to ourselves."

Pros: "I love the bins by the side of the Airbus, and for an economy seat there was a good amount of leg room."

Cons: "After taking off in San Francisco flight got re-routed to Minneapolis because of a sick passenger on board. Caused me to miss my connection in London and the subsequent flight I was put on because of the delay. Spent 10 hours overnihht at Heathrow in London because British Airways wasn't giving out hotel vouchers just £15 in meal vouchers. Disappointing."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "Storage bins next to seat in world traveller plus"
Cons: "Lack of seinking water and no toilet in the world traveller plus cabin - curtains divided off the area blocking access to any toilets!"

Cons: "Paid for seat upgrade for "twin" seats on the side. Armrest did not move up, seats were tiny, and the side storage cabin that was one of the perks of the upgraded seating was dirty. For that matter the entire plane was dirty. Food was disgusting. The entire plane was understaffed; multiple people had their call lights on at one time. It was a miserable flight."

Pros: "Checking in online 24 hours prior to departure I received up-dates thrice regarding the delay of the flight which was very convenient. I had also learned about the protections that I enjoy as a passenger checking in online. The flight caught up in terms of timing as I had to catch a connecting flight to the continent from London. I was very pleased, also with the courteous flight attendents, the food, the entertainment selection and sufficient leg room in economy class. Overall a lovely experience, indeed!"

Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."

Pros: "Easy online Check in. Nice crew."
Cons: "Very tight space on flights."

Pros: "I like the fact that was San Francisco to London just one chunk of the flight."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I did not have enough room for my legs. We were crump like sardines. The food was discusting, unedible. The quality of the air was very bad. It was hard to breath inside."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Offer more water throughout the flight"

Cons: "Could not do online checkin due to some sort of problem with their booking system, and as a result couldn't choose our seats on the long haul flight."

Cons: "My bike was checked luggage and was late coming from London. It made me miss my alitali flight and had to spend the night in room."

Pros: "Everything no complaints"
Cons: "No copmplaints"

Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"

Pros: "The seates were nice and plush. The journey wasn't bumpy at all, and the pilot was funny. He made a fun comment saying 'he had someplace to be in New York so he will get us there as quickly as possible.' :P The crew was friendly and sweet."
Cons: "There was no food ! I assumed a flight from the west coast to the east coast would atleast provide with some food ! But nada. It bugged me more because I had to catch a another flight from new York to London. Other than that, guess it was pretty okay."

Cons: "Spent $2000 on a flight SFO to London / Toulouse, expected a better seat and experience. Plane was old, seats uncomfortable, food horrible. No snacks available in between two horrible meals."

Pros: "The overall experience was very good from the angle of clean toilets, food and good leg space even in economy class."

Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."

Pros: "The new A380 seats are absolutely awful."
Cons: "The try tables are small and already falling apart. The seats fell like they're already 20 years old, yet it's a new aircraft."

Pros: "The sound levels were way low resulting in much lower stress on this aircraft. The beast flew extremely well and was amazingly huge. The BA food was the best I had ever had on an airplane, (in economy) and generous, fresh and varied. The flight crew was very professional and the landings and take-offs were for my wife who is very sensitive to such events, very nice. Fantastic assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "There was not enough water available, and I made the mistake of not buying in the terminal. There is no public area to move around in, which I kind of thought there would be for such a huge airplane. The seats and room were even less than other airplanes (in "World Traveler"--economy) which is a drag because I am a bit shy of 6'. The seat in front of me was about 10" from my face during the flight with mine reclined all the way (and the person in front of me) Pretty much impossible to sleep--ugh."

Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
