Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "It was like flying in a Four Seasons but better."
Cons: "Boring movie selections. 80% Marvel films."
Pros: "Just OK"
Cons: "Airport lounge at Ahmedabad"
Pros: "Seat more comfortable ."
Cons: "there is need to improve food & entertainment section."
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Long flight, not so full, yet the crew was busy. Some green/trainee types waking us up to bring seat forward while serving meal to passengers on the rear row !! One said we dont serve wine with lunch - really! She did bring the wine 30 minutes later. But they were nice overall. Kept it clean. A+."
Cons: "Nice if they offered/served drinks before meals"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"
Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"

Pros: "We loved everything. From the moment we walked into the plane we were blown away. Food, air hostesses,flight, you name it was great."
Cons: "We didn't like that our return flight was changed to a different airline. Cathay Pacific. My wife didn't like the service at all and keep complaining and comparing it to Qatar."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Short flight, seat pitch OK and food adequate. Good crew."
Cons: "Bus boarding always chaotic"
Pros: "The aircraft was new, the flight was empty and the flight attendants were extremely attentive! It was great. Wish I had the same experience on the previous flight."

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "baggage process could have been better, i was made to remove stuff just because was 1-2 lbs overweight in my baggage. Never had this issue with other airlines (especially when its only matter of 1-2 lbs.)"
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "The aircraft was kinda old.. There was no usp plug to charge ur phone. . This was an issue for me. . I was out of charge and i wanted to make some calls after landing"

Cons: "24H delay, no meals, no coordination, no communication."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "What I really impressed me over other airlines was the choice of movies and other entertainment"
Cons: "What I really didn't like was the food. ex. I asked for Hindu good. The choice of chicken I had was never ever cooked by Hindus. The chicken was looking something like a small hot dog served with potatoes which is never a part of Hindu meal. Also the curry was less making the passengers eat dry rice. Some passengers had pickle as choice some had some kind of butter to eat with rice and curry which could never be a combination."

Cons: "Armrest was broken on 1st flight making it difficult to get the tray table out."
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me smelled REALLY bad. Like he hadn't washed himself in weeks. Other passengers around me got a whiff too and also reacted the same. I asked the main crew member from my aisle for a seat change but he came back 10 mins later saying there was nothing else available. Later when I was walking around to stretch my legs, I saw there were AT LEAST 10 seats open in the next cabin. Why lie? The entertainment system touch-screen was not working properly and the headphones kept falling out of my ear."

Cons: "A better breakfast..."

Pros: "We arrived early and check in went smooth"

Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Cons: "No food only blueberry juice and water"
Cons: "long waiting time in the bus before the flight"
Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."

Cons: "Has to wait 14 hours in Helsinki for a 25 minute connecting flight"
Pros: "The general entertainment/informative systems ran perfectly smooth without hiccups! Cabin crews were all pleasant to everyone onboard and I didn't feel as tiring after my 10.5 hours flying time as compared with other airlines!"
Cons: "The pre-booked in-flight WIFI service can hardly say it's working as the connection speed was way too slow to perform any general tasks and that's ashamed as I paid premium charges for that and didn't expect that I couldn't use the service at last"
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Cons: "Food was too salty"
Cons: "Late change gate number. Automatic info-terminal can't read my boarding pass. Not possibility enter flight number ( AY6 - only digits, no letters) Please make WiFi low speed free. Please be atention: more than half passengers russian - there no any muvy russian audio or subtitle on TV Don't show fly with short (30min) transfering"
Pros: "In cabin crew was good. Good service"
Cons: "Crew at gate wasn't really friendly. Made some of us check in our carry ons stating that the flight was full, but I found on the plane that there was tons of overhead space after everyone had boarded. I had a connecting flight to tallin for a conference and was nervous that my checked in carry-on wouldn't make it."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern and clean plane."
Cons: "After we landed the crew diacovet d that we had parked too far from the gate and needed to move the plane. Several passengers were anxious to deplane to connect to another flight and refused to sit down which caused further delays. The crew could have been more stern about passenger conduct as to make the process more efficient."

Cons: "all the info should be listed on the web as well that the cost is half more than the website"

Pros: "There was like 5 movies to choose from and 2 shows, all the movies old and my screen kept on getting stuck"

Pros: "The service were very good. Just wish the food better selection."
Cons: "The leg room were tight."
Pros: "I like the Airbus A330 model's that AA flies from Charlotte on European destinations. They are the former USAir A330's and they are nice both in business and economy. There are no premium economy seats on this version. And Charlotte is an excellent airport to fly from/to."
Cons: "I wish there was a premium economy offering on this plane. The first row of economy is sold as such but is really nothing like prem economy apart from additional legroom."
Pros: "The crew was very much professionals, worked fast."
Pros: "I did get to move away from complaining passengers but "lost my coat" in the process. People are awful and obnoxious"
Cons: "Who doesn't turn off the plane lights at night inside the cabin? Especially when you're feeling late at night? Didn't post gate until very last minute…LHR..Then it said boarding immediately. Nowhere to get water. Hurriedly Boarded plane to find out we have the sit there an hour. Girl next to me was so childish Loud mouth complaining because she couldn't sit next to her bf."
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Pros: "Crew staff pleasant although did not particularly take the initiative to help customers."
Cons: "Boarding process at Heathrow was chaotic. Could not hear announcements and the response was a large crowd pushing towards an unclear entrance point. The seats are quite small and recline a minimal amount My biggest complaint is that four of us traveling together could not be seated in close proximity to each other, despite making that request over four months before the flight. Extremely frustrating to deal with check-in process as well--because we booked on Finnair, we could not use online system. This was an aggravation considering we were traveling. And--one of our bags was left behind in London. \"
Pros: "Punctual and very good service from friendly crew"
Cons: "They don't give you options about what kind of food you prefer like carne / pasta , there is just one menu option. Any kind of snack between the two meals in a 11 hours flight. If you get hungry you will have to buy snacks on board . No legroom"
Pros: "I've got a lot of attention to my needs with some health issues. Thank you very much."
Cons: "Crew members were almost non-existent. Saw them beginning and end of flight only and this was not even red eye flight. Food quality was very poor for premium seating. Many on board had to approach flight crew in back of cabin to get something to drink throughout he 10 hour flight."
Cons: "The meal time was a bit odd and there was no snacks served in between midnight full meal & breakfast which lasted for about 8hours"
Pros: "Overall a great flight."
Cons: "Breakfast not their best meal. No tea or coffee served, very disappointing."
Pros: "Flight was not super crowded. Crew were lovely."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment...had to endure The Charlie Brown movie, Nelson Mandela biopic and lousy boxing movie. Seats extremely small...would have been awful if plane was at full capacity. Plane very dated...no frills"

Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was all good!"
Cons: "We had the worst experience getting to our flight this airport is so badly managed it is laughable."
Cons: "Long wait after boarding waiting for bus. Bus out to plane. After boarding, horrible stench of fuel fumes inside plane. Probably very unhealthy and carcinogenic."
Pros: "This was a Finnair ticket on a BA flight. The price was excellent and BA was excellent."
