Lost baggage

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

Departure gate is left overcrowded & creates a tense environment awaiting boarding. B777 business configuration or pig pens as I refer to them is clumsy, hard to access if you are large, claustrophobic & reverse facing in the alternative. If you are unlucky as we were to draw aisle 14 and reverse facing on both legs going over and returning then preferred meal choices are exhausted by time crew get to u & movie entertainment choice was exactly identical despite flights being 7 weeks apart. Crew abandoned us literally on return home leg when clear we weren’t happy. Won’t fly Qatar again if they continue using B777

TV monitors are very old. Touchpad does jot work well.

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."
Pros: "attentive crew. comfortable seating. good food options"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
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: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "transit timing was a bit hectic."
Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"
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."
Cons: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides."
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."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
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"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I am taking Qatar on all international travels when possible."
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: "طيران ممتاز"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
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: "The staff"
Cons: "As always the space"
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
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"
Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
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."
Pros: "Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)"
Cons: "Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad"
Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."
Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Cons: "not friendly staff delayed and no help. cost me so much did not get anything"

Looking forward to fly out with you more!

Loved the entertainment system at all seats. Every seat had headphones. Meals on all flights. Longer flights had a little plane package that included eye mask, slippers, anti-slip socks, toothbrush and toothpaste, and lotion. Free wine available for all meals. Overall, a great way to fly!

Plane left late missed connection had to stay at a hotel . Scheduled for wheelchair assist at purchase of ticket and did not Have available between flights had towalk to find help

We are vegan and that can mean just tomato sauce of penne pasta on some lines. This was more innovative choices. And they kept it straight in amongst all other passengers meals. It was no big deal to them. I liked that. The service was pleasant. The movie selections were enjoyable. The temperature was kept comfortable on an 11 hour flight. That matters for that long

They ran out of small bottles of water, with the flight 5/6 full. I also did not like that announcements were really loud through the entertainment system. I had to lower the volume several times. The meals could be improved as well. Staff was very responsive.

Delayed 3 times and keeping saying people to sit down. No clear lines or clear instructions when checkin or boarding. Rude staff. Great pilots though. Experience some lost and found situation at IST. The worse nightmare ever. Staff keep sending me to different people: information desk to lost and found inside gate then to inside TK desk then TK send to outside gate lost and found saying go through customs. Customs say no goes there etc… after 1.5 hrs finally able to find the right lost and found. What make things worse is noone offers to take the luggage. We found someone stuff with passport and we just trying to give it back… why made things so hard on us

Just average experience. Business class seat layout is less than par. 2 3 2 seating. Little outdated. The lounge at JFK really doesn’t exist. (Avoid JFK at all cost) But the lounge experience at Istanbul made it up. Overall average.

Pros: "The airplane was brand new and the service was very good."
Cons: "The ground handling team was very rude and they refused to help me and they acted very aggressive for no reason"
Cons: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "Athens to Istanbul is a short one hour flight, made very pleasant by the attentiveness of cabin crew"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Food was decent! Service rocked!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours! No explanation given!"
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "Easy check in On time Good inflight tv Good food What more can one dream for except free upgrades ??"
Cons: "Passport control in Istanbul horribly chaotic and long."
Pros: "Everything was so great cabin crew was so nice and so friendly"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."
Pros: "We loved everything about our flight, plane was so quiet and service was amazing"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "the movies were very nice. the screen was very nice the crew on the flight was nice."
Cons: "1. I wish that when I booked the flight it will say there is food on the flight, and that I'll have the option to choose vegetarian meal. 2. I wish the people at the Turkish lounge in I Istanbul would have been nice, and help me, and if not, guide me to a Turkish information to assist me with ordering vegetarian meal for the flight back, and to find something I've lost..."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I had to wait until 9am when the counter for baggage registration was open. I arrived to Madrid from Lima at 5.30 am"
Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I didn’t eat or used entertainment so no opinion on that"
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Free drinks and movies"
Cons: "Food wasn't great, wouldve rather better snacks than food that wasnt good. Pilot volume - I would listen to a movie at say level 3 and the pilot would come over the radio at like volume level of 7 or 8. Not helpful."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."
Pros: "The service is excellent and they do everything in their control to make a long flight comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight - nothing you do about that."
Pros: "Flight was very punctual (actually early enough to cause problems with being collected on arrival), despite being full, there was ample space. The food was very edible, brings service was sufficient and the crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The gate was a good 15-20 minutes walk from the main duty free area of the terminal with not much signage indicating this. The touch function on my inflight entertainment screen lagged a bit and there was no USB charging offered"
Pros: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Cons: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Cons: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Cost of the ticket"
Pros: "Even in economy, TK serves two full meals, with beer/wine as beverage options. They also give an overnight bag with slippers and other helpful goodies"
Cons: "The level of service by the cabin crew was really disappointing. One of the flight attendants asked me to switch seats with the woman seated next to me (although I had pre-selected my seat). I obliged, although I think that the cabin crew and/or gate agents should have given more thought to giving her a better seat assignment, like a bulkhead seat. This woman was uncommonly large with mobility problems, so it was difficult for me to get up when I wanted to. The entertainment system malfunctioned about an hour into the flight, and I had to flag down a cabin crew member on 3 separate occasions to ask them to look into it. No one ever bothered to follow up or attempt to resolve the problem. To make matters worse, the entertainment system is connected to the entire electrical system, so I couldn't use the "call cabin crew" button, or the overhead light - meaning I was stuck in the dark for HOURS. Only after I demanded to be given another seat did anyone do anything, and with zero apologies."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "entertainment is poor no TV on the back seat only on top 1 film is shown for all."
Cons: "We boarded on time but the flight didn't leave for another 45 minutes or so. This made me miss my next flight when I landed in Instanbul. I think they might have been doing extra checks on the plane so it's fine. Even though I missed my flight and it was out of my control, I was able get another flight within 5 hours and free of charge!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I enjoyed the entertainment system. It was a clean plane and undoubtedly newer than most."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, but I was happy to even receive food on a short flight."
Pros: "Attention & willingness to help. Very pleasant flight from start to finish"
Cons: "Food was better in last trip. This time is sandwich"
Pros: "On time flight, Helpful crew and relaxing journey. Overall an amazing travelling experience from start to finish."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above Very bad experience"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "plane interior could be updated."

I felt hostage

Arrived early. Smooth ride.

The flight departed on-time and arrived early. And the in-flight crew were pleasant and helpful.

There were complications with my flights boarding in spokane and my secondary flight was changed without my consent to one that boarded at the same time as my first flight let me out on the opposite side of the massivr layover airport. It was only because an employee saw my struggle and confusion and hooked me up with a ride that I even made the flight dispite delta's best efforts. My TV's headphone jack on my first flight was also busted which sucked to find out after buying headphones on the flight. About halfway through the flight one of the attendants moved me to a seat with a working TV. Long story short Delta as an airline was terrible but their employees did their best to help me with what limited options they had to work with.

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing short"
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."
Cons: "Cleanliness"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Service was quick!"
Cons: "One flight the plane was quite warm and the air overhead was blowing warm air.. didn’t cool down until we were preparing to land and then it blew warm air out again.."
Pros: "Seats too small"
Cons: "Crappie entertainment. Never figured out how to login on phone,"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Crew is always friendly"
Cons: "Aircraft broke, had to route me to an additional three stops just to get me home and through the night. Also, still unsure of where my checked baggage is."
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "First class almost always guarantees a much better experience!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Don’t change my chosen seat that I paid for as I am entering the plane without my knowledge and acceptance"
Pros: "Crew was nice and tried to help us as there was no food on board for our dietary restrictions."
Cons: "The folks at the desk arrived late to address issues. It was crowded and disorganized. When i addressed an issue at the check in regarding not seating me with my children including a 7 year old). the response is. Well you bought a cheap flight so tough luck. The plane was dirty and frankly not very"
Cons: "Crew did not make passenger in front of me bring his seat back up for landing."
Pros: "Not very crowded"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on the plane."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."
Cons: "Can you make the seats any smaller? Cabin space is tight and for people who suffer from claustrophobia it makes it difficult traveling. More cabin space with raising the fares would be great!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"

Cons: "Cramped no entertainment cofée was nasty"
Cons: "I dont like that we wasted 3 hours delay in the fiarst fly, makimg us waste more time at los angeles it was a really nightmare"
Pros: "On time; safe flight"
Cons: "Service from boarding to landing was impersonal. No headphones etc. Etc."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Cons: "The crew could have been more friendly"
Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Pros: "On Time"

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "Seats are tight, not very roomy, I'm 6' tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. The delta studio entertainment app didn't work, couldn't use the internet at all."
Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."
Cons: "even though I paid for premium economy, the seating was still cramped shoulder to shoulder"
Pros: "I was upgraded to First at the gate. The crew was very professional and friendly. Food mini-minimal, but OK."
Cons: "On this A320 craft, old style, the First class seats are a joke. I had seat 2B. The pitch is apparently less than in the Comfort+ rows. The passengers in 1A and 1B started reclining even before departure, and during the whole flight. For me and my neighbor, with that seat on our chest, it was impossible to reach down to the seat-back pocket, not to mention to the bag stowed under the seat in front. To get out of the seat, I almost could not get my legs through the 5-in. interval between the back of the front seat and the irremovable armrest. I shook the passenger sleeping in 1B rather violently a couple times. The lady in seat 2B apologized, but she had to climb and put her feet on my seat to get out of hers, there was really no other way. Delta needs to address this ridiculous situation of their First Class seats urgently."

Terrible

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"
Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Quick boarding.

Everything went off without any problems

Absolutely atrocious experience. It’s going to be awhile before I think of flying American again.

The gate agent was incredibly rude. Did not communicate reason for delay and in fact delayed boarding

The WI-FI entertainment kept dropping signal and I would need to restart the app. Very Frustrating.

Hardly any crew service

Good travel

I’m not a fan of small planes. Not enough leg room. There was a man that would keep his mask on. He and his partner were disruptive. He/they should have been arrested upon landing. Or at least inconvenienced in some way.

I really wish American offered some type of free messaging.

When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."

Pros: "Tailwinds in our favor cut our flight down by an hour! Check in and boarding was super easy!"
