Cons: "Under 2 babies did not get enough milk They should have baby food items cereals, crackers or baby foods options"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The seat was reasonably comfortable. Boarding process was very orderly and smooth."
Pros: "seats were awesome, so as the food and the occasional snacks were delightful"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working, but since I got a window seat I didn't complain. Long time for a 12 h flight without video or something to occupy myself, but at least the USB port was working..."
Pros: "Everything was good. Seat is roomy and able to stretch leg."
Cons: "toilet is smaller"
Pros: "aircraft A350 , food choices , Doha airport , Staff attitude and willingness to help ."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "Qatar beats every US based airline, hands down! The planes are clean and modern with better seats, leg room, technology, food and staff. Everything is included in the cost of a ticket, something that US airlines should learn! I cannot say enough about the experience and wood recommend to anyone traveling to destinations served by this airline."
Cons: "I cannot think of a single thing."
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "Racist flight attendant targeted only 3 black people on the flight for chairs, bags, etc... But the people right next to us on either side received no reprimand. Terrible exclusionary actions."
Cons: "It was a little bumpy. Probably nothing to be done about that."
Pros: "crew were great. free snacks with lots of variety. Great assortment of films available."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed with no real clarity when the final departure time would be."
Cons: "Tvs didn’t work on the 2nd flight I had to take because of the delay in Rochester- insult to injury..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Pros: "Seats with little fold-down head rests on each side, allowing you to sleep/nap/doze in any seat. Really good touch screens for the entertainment system, with no need to have to dig my knuckles into the screen to get it to respond. Good movie selection too. Movies are also available before take off and even after landing. Acceptable white wine (Chenin Blanc). Food was also entirely acceptable."
Cons: "No individual air/temperature controls (at least in economy), unless it was all buried in the seat-back console some how."

Pros: "The speed of bouncing back from the computer system mishap"
Cons: "The check in people' rudeness, awful food, slow service"
Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Free drinks and food when traveling overseas. Possibly cheaper flights than other airlines?"
Cons: "I got switched to American Airlines last minute, which is a sister company of British Airways, apparently. This was 1 of the 2 worst flights that I have ever been on, only second to my other booked flight for this trip home. This flight was 7+ hours long and it was nothing short of horrible. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and barely went back at all. The male flight attendant was clearly annoyed and was short with every person who would ask for anything. He would roll his eyes at every request by customers. At one point I saw him literally toss a sandwich into a customers lap because they were turned the other way and didn't hear him when he asked if they wanted one. There was no way to watch anything unless you had your own device and had downloaded it yourself prior to the flight."
Pros: "Full flight but I had two seats and a delightful Ghanaian seat mate"
Cons: "Being dumped in Phillie with canceled E.g. To Burlington Vt"
Cons: "Even relative to other economy trans-Atlantic flights, the seats on this old plane were way too close together."
Pros: "Flight crew. Entertainment."
Cons: "2 hours late. No room for 22 inch carry-on in the overhead."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I hated my seat. Last row. Seat didn’t recline. Right next to the bathroom. That should not even be a row for passengers!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."
Pros: "Flight was timely and crew was very nice - good flight!"
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
Pros: "Crew was proficient."
Cons: "Seating was compact, reminded me of the buses that run from Mexico to the US. "Let's see how many we can fit in there?" Rubbing elbows the entire time."
Cons: "Flight never happened. American Airlines saved the day. It seems to me, the issues with United are deeper than we ever thought. I was highly disappointed with their inability to rectify the situation."
Pros: "The crew was ok for the type of company they are."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrendous. Really uncomfortable. No TV, no outlet to plug in my own device. And garbage wifi."
