Cons: "Food"

Pros: "1. All flights were on time. 2. The aircrafts were clean and tidy. 3. The choice of entertainment was plentiful. 4. Possibility to connect to internet provided on outbound leg, not on inbound."
Cons: "1. The boarding process, in general, could be improved. 2. The "official" transit time was one hour, but passengers were made to wait while the business class disembarked, reducing actual transit time to 30 mins. Considering distance to departing gate, and security checks, this was stressful."

Pros: "The service was fantastic"
Cons: "Screaming babies. But hey, great flight"

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."

Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

Cons: "As above"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "- the baggage drop off counter guy was rude, so was his supervisor, they forced us to check our carry-on luggage and made it as they're doing us a favor for not checking our backpacks - there was a problem with the flight and got delayed 90 min, we missed our connecting flight and had to stay in DOH airport overnight - the food was really bad compared to other flights by QA, my wife got food poisoning from their food"

Pros: "Plane, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Coach class is not for long haul flights"

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight on time."

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Pros: "It was a short flight, so no problems"

Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."

Pros: "Comfortable wide seats, good service"

Cons: "They cancelled the booking without telling about that And also they didn't prepare a place for staying The desk manager said the booking cancelled by your company"

Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Mashed connection"

Cons: "Plane seemed old and not upkeep. Chair in front of me leaned back to 5 inches from my face, every time he moved, the tray fell. The air seemed to be off in the front of the plane. Was sweating. But when I went to the bathroom in the back, it was cold"

Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"

Cons: "The plane was very old. On my seat, the TV screen did not work. The cabin crew was lazy. Nobody paid any attention to the Attendant light by my seat."

Pros: "Itinerary - hours of flight"
Cons: "Dinner could have been earlier"

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."

Cons: "Great food, comfortable seats, enjoyed the whole 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing really :)"

Cons: "When purchasing tickets on KAYAK be very careful to notice you often ARE NOT buying the ticket from the airline and any issues you have will be with the reseller and not the airline. KAYAK should be more clear about who the seller is and you should ABSOLUTELY stay away from resellers unless you like to gamble."

Pros: "Above expectation"

Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I was traveling with other people and we were not seated next to each other. And I got sick from the chicken."

Pros: "Nice crew, good food, good choice of movies. Good beer. :) We will fly again with Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "Great airplane. Very nice staff. Great service."

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding went smoothly. Seats not too comfy, knee room seems to be shrinking with every flight (transatlantic routes mostly)."
Cons: "I like wathcing European movies (German, French, etc.) when flying LH, but unfortunately they rarely have English subtitles."

Pros: "good flight."
Cons: "Ran a timy bit late but staff was all very nice."

Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."

Pros: "Very comfortable journey, was a pleasure to travel."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "The service was excellent along with the flight being very comfortable."
Cons: "A little more options in entertainment in the hindi language would be much better for people who do not like to watch English entertainment. Along with that free wifi would be kind of good to have for people who need to work on the flight or check out important emails."

Pros: "Friendly staff amazing boarding experience"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for food"

Cons: "As I checked in for the flight around 10 am on Saturday my ck in was "finished" because our pass ports were due to expire in April. We were not allowed to board our flight and the passport office is closed until Tuesday. As a result we lost $700 dollars to the hotel booked and Lufthansa may not reimburse us for the flights which were over $2000. Absolutely horrible service, no help. Negligent in informing us rapier when i chose seats for the flight. The flight was also delayed 2 and a half hours. We now have no vacation for which we paid $3000."

Pros: "Thanks for offering kosher!"
Cons: "Fish :("

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "Because my first flight took off late, my luggage didn't make it on this flight. It was not waiting for me at customs and I didn't get it until several days later."

Cons: "Our original flight, one day earlier, was canceled 10 minutes before boarding."

Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"

Pros: "SERVICE"

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."

Pros: "The food & service by flight attendants was phenomenal. Seating on the 747-8 in economy class was also comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I had ordered a child meal but it was not available. Also they did not have a child pack for my son."

Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"

Pros: "The check in process was fast"
Cons: "All the flight were bumping and landing felt very dangerous"

Pros: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Movie selection was great. Crew came through with drinks frequently. Overall nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Car seat was lost even though it was brought on the plane and not checked. Didn't care for the food but it was personal preference."

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "All would have been great, but the cross Atlantic had a locked seat assignment. I was assigned last row and middle seat, I could not change seat when there were other seats available at check-in. United would not let agents change either. Maybe kayak related? Expedia always allows seat changes"

Pros: "Uh, bearable seats that lean back. Back so far yourvrear neighbor could play beauty salon and wash your hair."
Cons: "Increasingly, they cause a problem and then blame you and you have to create the solution. My ticket number got disappeared in this case. I felt fine, ate beef stew from Lufthansa, threw up for an hour until it and my dignity were gone, felt fine. Frozen bread bothers me. Coffee is good."

Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "The on plane entertainment wasn't up to par. Not a lot of selection for sitcoms, if they had a sitcom it was only 1 episode. 12 hour flight I didn't have much to watch after the first 6 hours. Food was ok."

Pros: "Extremely roomy seats! So glad to have the room after a cramped flight from Europe!"

Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt was a nightmare. All the economy class was pushing and shoving and cutting in front of other people. People were standing outside the line and putting their tickets on the entry system and the attendants were doing nothing to stop them or tell them to go to the end of the line. When left from Chicago to Frankfurt they seated you by rows and this was much more efficient. All flights should board by some system vs. just everyone trying to go at once."

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Pros: "Overall the flight was mostly fine. It was a huge plane, but boarding and exiting were efficiently handled by the crew. The seats were comfortable and there was sufficient leg room. Meals were totally acceptable for an international flight, and the complimentary booze was immensely appreciated."
Cons: "My biggest gripe, however, was with the malfunctioning entertainment system directly in front of my wife's seat. The screen intermittently flickered on and off, and would go black for long streches of time. Kudos to the attentive crew for trying their best to fix the device during the flight, but their efforts did not solve the problem. It was disappointing not to have a working entertainment system for such a long international flight--it would have made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable."
