The flights were delayed, food was below average. The aircrafts were really old and poor the flight to India specially from Doha to New Delhi was horrible. The screens were not functional, had poor space and no air conditioning. I expected better service, will not fly qatar again. I will NOT recommended qatar airways to anyone.

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."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Service was not the same, flight attendants were not attentive or very accommodating. There were very rambunctious children on the flight and they did not consider everyone else by asking the parents to calm their children down instead allowed them to run up and down he aisles screaming etc"

Cons: "The seat didn't have any inflight entertainment"
Cons: "I had 2 checked in luggage, and both TSA lock on it was cut. Since it was TSA lock, I do not understand why both locks were cut instead of being opened with the international key. it cost me 10 USD it for the locks."
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The flight heading back from Scotland was delayed due to mechanical issues and we missed connecting flights. Although that being said, they did provide vouches until we knew the status of our plane."

Air in the middle rows seemed very weak(hot temps)

Delhi airport staff is really having much attitude and they don't think about passengers at all. They just showing attitude every of the tie.

Departure times were late

All up to great standard for Economy seats. Appreciated careful approach to COVID protocols and efficient service throughout. Also minimum delays at Dubai. Will definitely consider Emirates first for next UK/Europe trip! Only improvement could be the breakfasts being too starchy - too many breads, rolls etc, otherwise good.

Malfunctioning plane made us late…annoying

One thing I noticed was that food options wise most people opted for vegetarian option and that caused some shortage of veg meal. In my opinion if there is bitter paneer as the veg option then there should be butter chkn as the non veg option. Not a completely different cuisine. AlsoThe staff was more courteous on the way to dubai from chicago than from Chicago to Dubai.

Cons: "All good"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "everything was decent"

Pros: "Excellent crew. Got on just in time. Last one on the flight but they were very understanding. Loved the airbus A380."
Cons: "It was great but food could have been better. Process to get onto the flight at DXB was much longer and complicated than it needed to be. Huge airport and big distance between connecting flights."
Cons: "My judgement will be unfair cause I love Emirates airlines"
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment selection was borderline ridiculous—nearly too many choices!"
Cons: "The plane was too hot during boarding and again right before landing. It was really hot in Dubai so I understand why it was hot initially, but unsure why it became warm before landing."

Cons: "Food, quality of the food"
Pros: "The space in the 380"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"

Cons: "Would have loved business class,but what can u do,only thing was I had to remind about my skywards miles.."
Pros: "Beautiful aircraft flight attendants speak 19 languages additional leg room fabulous entertainment"
Cons: "only had jetblue as partner and when my flight had to be changed it presented a huge problem- they need more US partnerships to provide better options"
Cons: "We already quoted vegetarian but they failed to serve vegetarian, but they arranged substitute that is happy to me."
Cons: "The layover from Karachi to Dubai is less than 2 hours. The flight from Karachi is always late n it makes me nervous that I might miss my flight for LA. It has happened to me before. You should maintain your punctuality in Karachi as well. Even the boarding process is extremely flawed, it is very frustrating. Plz maintain your reputation everywhere in the word!"
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."
Cons: "I was not let onto the flight in Entebbe because I arrived at the airport an hour before the flight departed. I was given no notice of this rule (apparently only applicable on Emirates flights) and was forced to delay my trip 2 days and pay an additional $1045 for a replacement flight home."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and good was decent"
Cons: "Seats are mediocre. I think even JetBlue has better seats than Emirates"

Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "Crew are awesome, helpful"
Cons: "Emirates pizza is not good."
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"

It was alright, just boarding was delayed.

I like the efficiency and punctuality . But all passengers were put in 1 bus for boarding and it was very crowded and no social distancing

Long drawn out boarding process with multiple delays and unnecessary security checks. No priority for business class passengers. Poor food for business class my remote stopped working mid flight and the attendant suggested I deal with it for the remainder of the flight even though they’re were multiple empty seats in the cabin. Flight crew barely spoke English which shouldn’t happen on a international flight. Overall mediocre for the money I spent. I will stick to Qatar Airways from now on for my travel needs.

Pros: "Seat not comfortable at all... no TV.... sounds bizarre from the plane.... I was scared all the time"
Pros: "very friendly crew (we were flying with two small kids) who went above and beyond to make them as comfortable and happy as possible."
Pros: "my flight never happened I am still sitting here waiting over 24hours later..."
Pros: "Crew was below average,seats was horrible"
Cons: "The plane needs to be upgraded immidiately,and crew needs to get a bit education in order to take and immidiate action to any situation during the flight"
Pros: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Cons: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."
Pros: "The flight itself was good. Turkish airlines provides some nice amenities; which I don't actually use. But they're nice."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on its scheduled day. So I had to wait an extra day to get home."
Pros: "Everything- Most enjoyable international flight ever"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The entertainment system (the movies, songs and ext) The food was good."
Cons: "The seats MUST be updated."
Pros: "In flight entertainment Bathroom focet"
Cons: "The seats were highly and unusually cramped up. To increase the space, provide leg room, not alright for an international flight w 14 hrs duration in flight. Very discomfort."
Pros: "The food was good and the staff were nice"
Cons: "The seats are very small and extremely discomfort for overseas flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats..."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight overall and good lie flat seats. All but one flight attendant were nice and helpful."

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew and quality of food and beverages served"
Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Service is good as well as food."
Cons: "The space. The transatlantic leg was awful because the space was really limited. From IST to my final destination the leg room increased"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and wore smiles..."
Cons: "The food could have been better..."
Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Pros: "Great crew... and good legroom..."
Cons: "No entertainment like video etc."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful,seats comfortable."

Pros: "Good food and plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped."
Pros: "The flight was empty so got 3 seats to myself"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were not good. Its a 13 and half hour leg and when in the middle of that long journey when asked for a snack, the crew was not aware of the options that were listed on their very own menu. They ended up telling me that they must have run out of one of the options listed in the menu which they were not aware even existed 2 minutes ago."
Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."

Pros: "Turkish got everything right, and the food is exceptional. Entertainment choices were new movies and ones I wanted to see. I've never had such a great time in economy!"

I pay 2000$ for bad fly

Canceled 3x Still stuck

Lufthansa only have pasta and no options. I don’t like pasta so had a bread roll on a 9 hour flight Fold out entertainment system arm would not hold the screen up as it was loose. Generally the inside of the aircraft was in a poor state of repair. Overall the most unGerman flight

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."
Cons: "Lufthansa left us stranded in Dublin"
Pros: "Hydration station during the long flight. Leg room adequate."
Cons: "They checked my bag at the gate - despite me traveling all over the world NEVER having to check it - and would not take no for an answer, despite me having a 25 minute connection due to their one hour delay. Once boarded there was an incredible amount of empty overhead bins! Bag didn't make it"
Cons: "I was at the end of a long flight, so exhausted and feel sea sick. I cannot give good comments for this since it was short but a little bumpy flight , i almost throw up at the end."
Pros: "aaa"
Cons: "zzz"
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "Delay of more than two hours caused my booking at the hotel to be cancelled. Not only i lost all my money but have no hotel to stay What is your responsibility on that???"
Pros: "More spacious seating. Crew was happy, nice and seemed to care. Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "too many unruly kids"
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"
Pros: "Arrived/departed on time and didn’t lose luggage"
Cons: "Paid extra for reserved seat that was free a few years ago—a very uncomfortably cramped seat."
Cons: "Flight late"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, there was no TV or any other entertainment"
Pros: "Crew. Courteous, engaging and supportive, of-course with a smile."
Cons: "Nothing on this flight"
Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Pros: "Plane lwas delayed for 4 hours. The ground staff work hard to help out and give updated information. The Crew on plane worked hard, great service. Main issue: It was extremely cold in the plane, neeeddd to blankets to feel comfortable."
Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Cons: "Chaos at the gate, TV displays facing the side wall instead of the waiting area, we couldn’t see anything. Need more organization in line. Also, why there is no charger on board for cell phones? No TV entertainment or music or anything. It was clearly lacking the sophistication and class of Lufthansa."
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "Narrow, hard seats that will bring back your greatest dentist memories. Unappetizing menu choices, such that I chose not to partake. Nickel and dime add-on for wifi. Seriously? Thousands of dollars for business class, and you want another 13 Euro for wifi? Not bloody likely. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with Lufthansa, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Pros: "Lufthansa did well with handling a very difficult situation with courtesy, attention, and offering of amenities."
Cons: "Through no fault of Lufthansa, because of problems at JFK, our flight was turned around and returned to Munich after two hours of travel."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and could not recline seats"
Pros: "Flights themselves were ok with friendly crew."
Cons: "Only two passport gates for non EU passengers at Frankfurt. Four employees at EU gates sat there and laughed at the angry crowd. Lufthansa should have anticipated this mass of people and had appropriate passport checkers there from that company. "Not our fault" does not cut it. Two planes 600 people each landed at same time. I'd guess a quarter missed connection. The process of rescheduling was a comedy of lies and inefficiency and lack of concern. Worst air travel experience ever. Ruined first two days of my vacation. Oh yea forgot the worst. No air conditioner running on runway at Houston at three in afternoon. Passengers visibly sweating before a nine out overseas flight. Blamed it on a mistake."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
Cons: "Staff in Bayreuth was very good and excellent specialy miss Suzane Fakhri and mrs.Ahmad Jaber ,and the way the staff was excellent"
Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."
Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance to the boarding gate. The attendants were very helpful and courteous."
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "boarding, after preferred members and those needing help, was all one. that's a lot of people. ended up being fine since there was plenty of time, but sometimes, people in the aisles slow the process down. might be better to put the people at the back of the flight on first."
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
