Everything was excellent. It would be nice if bigger and obese people would take two seats. The guy next to me was obese and I was squeezed into my seat. His big shoulders forced me to constantly move away from him since he spread into my space as well

Everything was excellent. It would be nice if bigger and obese people would take two seats. The guy next to me was obese and I was squeezed into my seat. His big shoulders forced me to constantly move away from him since he spread into my space as well

Pros: "The Cabin crew was amazing, the ICE entertainment has many options of movies and programs, the flight was smooth to Singapore."
Cons: "Keep the good work."
Pros: "Food is amazing, planes are good."
Cons: "The boarding crew at the gate did not say anything while weighing the carry on bag. I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Flight was on time. Seats were good per economy class"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "I am looking for something good put didn’t find Sorry"
Cons: "The departure time should be on time Our flight was delayed more than one hour"
Pros: "Interior of plane was very comfortable and entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Slow to serve food and drink. We had to wait 2 hours before being offered anything."
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick out seats and got stuck in a middle seat. No opportunity to change, even though I tried to do so a week before the flight as welll as once online check in opened."
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I did not get the seat that I booked online. This made things a little hard for me."
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: "Good entertainment. Good vegetarian selection of food. Polite and friendly crew."

Changement heure de vol et je dois attendre 9h à Aeroport de DOHA.. C'est inadmissible.. je dois réfléchir avec Qatar la prochaine réservation

Food Free wifi could be better. Its a very long flight and not a cheap flight. Free wifi is good to have. After paying $2k on economy free wifi should be part of the flight ticket cost.

Pros: "crews are ok. but they run out chicken entre. awful."
Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."
Pros: "Great crew, great customer service by phone, great food and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning took ages, but don't they always?"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."
Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."
Pros: "Comfort in long foight was amazing. Never felt tired. Upgraded movie collection. Food was great."
Cons: "Carry on baggage allowance is way too low. Only 7kgs including laptop bag is too low for international travel. TV screens were a bit old enough and had to click multiple times."
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."
