Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Plane quite empty so lots of space."
Cons: "Service not very attentive, had to repeatedly ask."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The plane was new."
Cons: "There was a limited choice in movies. Boarding and deplaning took a while."
Cons: "The flight is too long"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Qatar flight is no problem"
Pros: "The wider space between all seats and the selection of the food"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Cons: "Seats are way uncomfortable and small"
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."
Pros: "Nothing that i like"
Cons: "Delay, bad food, no strict rules about passenger moving seats"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
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: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Pros: "The service was great"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Pros: "The entire Qatar crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Requested isle seat from DOHA to Houston but was issued middle seat."
Pros: "The plan really comfortable evreything was great"

Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."
Cons: "My wife had a drunk passenger sitting next to her and the crew did nothing to stop the man from misbehaving.....what can I say to this inefficiency ??? I choose to not travel with ETIHAD ever again."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."
Pros: "Seats comfortable especially when plane not too crowded of course!! Blankets large and warm."
Cons: "Staff could be a bit friendlier Movie choice is ok but could be better Food can be improved drastically and could be healthier options"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness, the beautiful kind staff, and most important of all, the safe flight -- oh yeah, I loved sampling your world class music selection"
Cons: "for a tall guy you need to raise the seats a bit; the food was better than most airplane food but overcooked rice and fish was meh ... it's hard to image how an industrially prepared food could be better, but until you figure it out I'll keep packing my lunch"
Pros: "For a 15 hour flight out was fine. The food is good."
Cons: "Bathroom lines were usually long. Appears a few were not working."
Pros: "I liked everything but I still could not find out if I was getting credit on the frequent flyer sustem"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable business seating. Great choices of entertainment and great food."
Cons: "Boarding process having everyone board together is messy. Should have people that need assistance and families with very young children board first. They need extra time to settle. Then board by zones starting with business class."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "Had to board from a bus & the tarmac due to the construction at Abu Dhabi. Combined with a full flight - there was a lot of pushing as people were trying to get onboard first. We left an hour late as well"
Cons: "They moved my flight to later time on both ways."
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS NOT CANCELLED"
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS DELAYED, CONNECTING FLIGHTS WERE MISSED. SIGNIFICANT DELAYS"
Pros: "It was a great flight. I got an exit seat, and the air host, Dylan, was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."
Pros: "Staff were professional."
Cons: "Too full, busy flight with noisy travelers. Many children were constantly crying and there was too much going on. perhaps staff could suggest that travelers remain quiet or mindful of others who are trying to sleep."
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Cons: "Food choices were limited"
Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."
Pros: "On time arrival and flooding"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and top of the line service and treatment! Excellent customer service."
Cons: "This plane was quite noisy. Noise cancelling earphones helped but it was noticeably different to the next flight with air Berlin. That cabin was significantly quieter."
Pros: "The entertainment options are much appreciated. The crew was cheery and helpful. The meals were tasty."
Cons: "It's a really, really tight fit in Economy. Super hard on the knees and I'm a short person. It was even hard for my 7 year old to get into semi comfortable position to sleep. On the way over from Chicago to Abu Dhabi, the crew walked by with offers of water regularly and even snacks...we really missed this courtesy on the way back from Abu Dhabi to Chicago. Water was only offered during meals and it was hard to flag down an attendant for water."
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Cons: "Baggage ground staff behavior is very bad..Not allowed me to carry stuff which I purchased inside the airport..will never travel and will also request my company not to buy tickets through Eithad"
Cons: "Food presentation"
Pros: "good service, nice lounge in abu dhabi. wifi access. good movie selection."
Cons: "wasn't able to sit with my husband on the flight. may have preferred better food options"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable proably because I was given bassinet seats because of infant traveling with me, though recliner didn't work"
Cons: "I had lot of issues wrt handling my baby. No baby food was provided even after asking twice.No tea or coffee served in timely manner. Need to follow up to ask for tea or coffee. I wouldn't suggest this flight to anyone."
Cons: "No proper entertainment on board which would have been fine if the cost of the flight was less.. but considering other airlines provide better entertainment for the same route and less expensive tickets makes its not ok."
Pros: "Good nice flight feel like you sitting in bussiness class"
Cons: "Not enough servings of water. Tiny planes with little legroom"
Pros: "I enjoyed all aspects of the flight except the food."
Cons: "I did not likeep the food. It was oily and didn't have a good taste."

Cons: "No space for overhead luggage. Seats are not great."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Cons: "Last two flights with Virgin Australia (not Etihad) were very late. Va decided to cancel my booking on my international connection even though I could make it. VA DID ALL THEY COUKD TO MAKE SURE I MISSED MY CONNECTION."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "The boarding took forever. The lady issuing the boarding pass was new and took more than 40 mins to allocate us an upgraded exit row seat. I always felt the Abu Dhabi to NY flight has better service than Bengaluru to Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived early. This is so important when we have connecting flights that are about one hour away from arrival time."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. Great service"
Cons: "Staff not treating Indians properly but treating Caucasian like lords."
Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Good in all respect"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian sandwiches and don't substitute it with anything else. They should be extra careful with vegetarian options. Meal quality can improve a bit in general."
Pros: "Alitalia customer service and crew service was Excellent."
Cons: "Eithad crew service in Business Class from Bangalore to Abu Dhabi was very poor, not polite, my wife asked for some meal and five minutes later cabin crew staff brought a tray without any meal, saying that she asked only for bread with butter ¿¿¿¿???.... Never in my life I heard in Business Class such a stupid pretext for not having what a passanger ordered. But that was not the final of our story, as Business Class passangers Eithad arranged previously a hotel for eight hours until we catch our Alitalia flight to Milan at 8:55 am, but nobody took us to the hotel, in Abu Dhabi Etihad staff told us that we have to pay for that transfer. Once we reach the hotel paying our taxi, the hotel staff told us that the reservation was for the next day and that we have to pay for our staying ¿¿¿??? I cannot believe how bad is Etihad service, never in my life I will buy a Etihad ticket again unless I receive a trully and sincere apologize. We had a very bad time flying whith this airline, a horrible experience. Etihad, how are you going to compete whith Qatar and Emirates? With this service there is no way this company can succeed among those competitors."
