Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "There’s a reason Qatar Airline is one of the top 10 airlines! Other airlines feed you pretzels and charge you for a blanket. Qatar feeds you numerous times throughout the flight and everything is as great as travel today can be."

Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was excellent. The plane was new."
Cons: "There was a limited choice in movies. Boarding and deplaning took a while."

Pros: "The attendants were great."
Cons: "The food on all 4 flights was ok. Could have been more interesting recipes and dessert. The seats on all flights were consistently hard and stiff. It was impossible to get a decent rest because of that as well as the areas being pretty cramped."

Pros: "Amazing experience. Pinnacle of customer service"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Entertainment system, crew responsiveness"
Cons: "Quality of main dish (lamb with rice). Portion of lamb is very small."

Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."

Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"

Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"

Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"

Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."

Pros: "Smooth flying regardless of the air wake turbulence, excellent treatment from flight attendants. I felt safe during the flight."
Cons: "Give more time for checking in the luggage, Cancelation my flight with 0% reimbursed on my funds, on boarding time 10 minutes delay was truly unfair."

Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"

Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."

Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent. Highly recommend the chicken massals"
Cons: "The seats in economy class were a little too close for comfort"

Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."

Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."

Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."

Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "Wrost app I don’t advise any one use it cause"

Pros: "Ended up having spare seats beside me. Planes were new and in great condition. Staff were very good."

Pros: "Entertainment is epic. Speed to get luggage and depart airport was excellent."

Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Overall good."

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell."

I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "Everything. Nothing negative."

Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"

Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Comfort and space"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"

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."

Cons: "With a short layover and a bit of a delay coming from Seattle, I rushed through immigration and security and ran to my next gate.

Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"

Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."

Cons: "The TV sound didn’t work too well. Excellent staff Ms Maria Was very gracious."

Cons: "Tras pasar por la máquina con la tarjeta de embarque una azafata de tierra dijo que no podía pasar alegando que mi maleta de mano espesaba demasiado sin fijarse que ya había sido pesado con etiqueta de ‘cabin baggage por la aerolínea. Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."

Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."

Cons: "My brand luggage was damaged during the flight. Although I still had to pay 65 pounds for the extra bag."

Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"

Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"

Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."

Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."

Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"

Cons: "Leg room isn’t great for such can’t a long flight and the food was not the greatest."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"

Pros: "Fast service. No delays. Free baggage check in"
Cons: "Not so much as a free water let alone tea or coffee"

Pros: "Was delayed by 45 mins but managed to turn plans round quickly and get back faster than planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were lovely and the service was great. We paid for exit seats so had lots of leg room."

Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight at a very inconvenient early time, though booked months ahed. The aircraft had no leg room at all, being excessively uncomfortable. You could not stay in the market with this rubbish in Australia."

Cons: "I had a connecting flight from London to Madrid. Not only was the flight to London late over an hour, because of the security check point and liquid quantity confusion I was late to the connecting flight to Madrid and had to take a later flight which made me late to my meeting but on top of that I had to get rid of some of my stuff because it was over my limit on liquids. Very frustrating!"

Pros: "Boarding. Food."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment was broken and that us quite a disadvantage on a 12 hour flight. I was told it was because the airplane was "very old" which whilst it may be true it is not something I particularly want to hear. I was also told that as the flight was full I could only move seats if someone wanted to swap. I'm not sure if the flight attendant was expecting me to stand up and make a public request?!"

Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Muslim meal caters are not good at all. Need to have better meals"
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard. Also felt discrimination in the crew staff"

Cons: "It is a flight operated by Iberia and business class doesn’t really feel like such"

Pros: "The plane landed"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable; wasn't brought promised water, landed with headache as a result. Flightlate"

Pros: "Todo fue prrfecto"

Pros: "The man at the customer service desk in london airport was nife."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of an issue with airplane coming from lax to london. All i got was a 5 euro voucher. And i was meeting someone at madrid airport and neither of us had any way of getting in cotact with each other. It was a freaking nightmare."

Pros: "The food and the services. The plane looks new and clean. Many new release movies."
Cons: "seat space is too small and not comfort."

Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."

Pros: "Easy to board promptly"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "The plane was way too hot"

Pros: "Cabin Crew flight data punctuality"
Cons: "That I had to PAY for water to drink that was not tap water No room for my carry-on in overhead bins...took some arranging."

Pros: "Virtually nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced. 90 minutes late departure due to “late inbound aircraft”. Uncomfortable seats - in “Club Europe”. Abysmal food - what would be an economy snack in a decent airline. Really, don’t bother with BA. It’s Ryanair with better livery."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Group of men walked about and talked to each other rather than sitting in their seats."

Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"

Pros: "Crew were good, the food was mediocre when they served lunch - but then there was nothing more to eat until nearly the end of a 9 hour flight, by which time it was past 10.30pm back in London. At that point, all that was offered was half a sandwich and a biscuit."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment didn't work at first, and then when it started, kept on threatening to shut itself down every time I moved. The selection was ok but nothing compared to other airlines. The screen was tiny and low resolution. The seats were old - the same ones as when BA introduced their premium economy back in 2000. The aircraft was desperately in need of a refresh."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "The transfer from T5 to T3 was chaotic. Queues to join queues to get the transfer bus. People were getting caught on a moving escalator because the crowd in front had nowhere they could go to make room. Extremely dangerous! It took longer to get from T5 to T3 than it did to get from Dublin to London. Boarding in T3 for the flight to Denver was almost as bad. Bodies everywhere, no organisation and no help. Then the aircraft itself was so old with uncomfortable seats and an almost unwatchable screen. I will never transit through LHR again."
