Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."
Pros: "There are very friendly"
Cons: "Just continue the better services"
Pros: "Discount offer"
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Flight was on time, touch down smooth"
Cons: "The screen for my seat was not working correctly so could not do anything except wait for flight to finish"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"
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: "comfortable seats, pretty good food, extremely gracious cabin crew."
Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the 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: "Good service"
Pros: "They are the best"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
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."
Pros: "Incredibly attentive service"
Cons: "Internet service didn’t work. Also waiting for can refund because of unannounced 12 hour delay on the outbound flight."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Again amazing wonderful flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! I'm sooo impressed!!! Great food!"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Everything is good thank you so mach !!!!"
Cons: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Being able to ear what you want and when you want it made my flight so much more enjoyable. You can ask for anything on the menu and the flight attendants are so attentive."
Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."
Pros: "Transit airport lounge allowed owing to gold status"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off on Riyadh - Doha sector. No food was served while we waited in the plane to take off. There was no definitive time given for take off during the three hour wait in the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very efficient and really took care of us."
Cons: "given their were three food choices, most often what we wanted wa almost always not available even if were in the first rows to be served."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "Mi única incomodidad es que el vuelo iba repleto y fue imposible dormir en ese mínimo espacio de un asiento. Pero eso no es culpa de ellos, supongo..."
Pros: "Flight attendants are helpful from Doha to New York."
Cons: "Take the bus from the plane to the terminal in Doha. It was a hassle .from Doha to Dhaka was 3hours delayed without a notice."
Cons: "I did not like that u cannot see what seats are avil before u buy the ticket.. i got a bad seat!"
Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Cons: "The delay from Bahrain to Doha. We delayed around 30 min. On the plane before take off."

Pros: "Movies and drinks"

Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Cons: "Again United ugh! They took us to the gate where we had a 4 hour layover. We watched an emergency happening at the gate (not their fault) which caused delays at that gate. When it was getting close to the time for our flight and they were still boarding an earlier flight, I checked with them to see if ours would be delayed. They had changed the gate without making an announcement. We had to get ourselves to the new gate with barely time to spare. They never turned the seatbelt light off for the trip so we could not use the restroom"

Cons: "Never made it"
Pros: "The United employees handled everything. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"

Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Long flights should have something edible."
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Someone sitting in my lap"
Cons: "How is it that I'm small and never get to use all of my seat due to the person next to me using half of it? .....and they are getting smaller....can you say cattle call?"
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Cons: "Crew members were pretty loud for an early morning flight as they walked down the aisle. Early morning flights should also have the screens off and if people want them then they can turn it on, instead of the other way around."
Pros: "The onscreen entertainment kept me occupied most of he trip. There were also multiple bathrooms which helped. The neck rest installed on the seat was also nice."

Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."

Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Cons: "I left at 7 am East coast time and didn't make it back to Portland until 11:30 pm Pacific time due to flight issues and delays. And my luggage didn't arrive."
Cons: "The fact that I wasn't able to sit with my travel partner"
Pros: "Pretty much the same... things were smooth and staff we very nice and pleasant."
Pros: "But as far as I know, nobody was beaten up by your goons. From now on, I will fly United only as a last result."
Pros: "We finally arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was filthy and crew was not very helpful."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "seat in last row of plane. no outlet under my seat for charging. listened to flight attendants conversation the whole time. in flight entertainment system was not working on whole plane and could use the in-app entertainment either since it was assuming we had a working infotainment system. seat would not recline"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Pros: "The boarding agents were friendly and helpful. No problems, no real issues. My flight was delayed, the pilot made up for it in the air. I always have a great experience when flying United!"

Pros: "Ifot like tga ser vive"
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Cons: "Rude and unhelpful staff. Delayed also which made my travel bad."
Cons: "milk products in the snack bag, gross."
Cons: "My flight was super late and due to delays I missed my second flight"
Pros: "Boarding at the Midland airport was a breeze. Small airport, small plane, quick and easy boarding. Good plane - new Embraer jet. Enough room in economy even without Economy Plus. Good amount of time for a flight - not overly long. Friendly crew, standard service."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Cons: "delayed for typhoon then delayed another day because air traffic control delayed my connector"
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "Flight was 15 minutes early, which helped with a tight connecting flight. Crew was very kind and understanding to this fact."
Cons: "My seat was switched to a middle seat with no reason or justification."
Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"
