Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
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."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive,"
Cons: "Have all the food choice in the menu available. And add sudoku to the game"
Pros: "The food was good and many entertaining movies."

Cons: "Improve your carry on lagguge policy. I was made to throw away some of my expensive clothes by the stuff to fit the weight, when it wasn't a problem when I was checking in ."
Pros: "Qatar is impressive. The airbus was incredible."
Cons: "It would be noce for flight attendants to give coughing passengers a mask. 12 hours on a flight next to two sick people."
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."
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: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"

You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Service and food were excellentpA"
Cons: "Announcement volume too loud"
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Cons: "Cramped and full flight with no entertainment. Stewardesses were also talkin too much among themselves."
Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with excellent service."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."

Pros: "Excellent crew and plane. Not very crowded."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Non-muslim aircraft allow standard prayer practices inside the cabin but Qatar airways cries over safety issues."
Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"
Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"

Cons: "It was a bit cramped but overall it was a wonderful experience"
Pros: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Cons: "Food and crew."
Pros: "Flight overall was unremarkable. Aircraft was almost twenty years old and looked it."
Cons: "Boarding via a bus was painful and inefficient. BA is selling more flights than it can accommodate at Terminal 5. Because plane was so old, the screens for the entertainment are laughably small and faded. Seats themselves are tired, with wobbly and dirty tray tables, and seatbacks that don't recline properly. Seat power is the outdated Empower standard, which doesn't work without a special adapter which virtually nobody has."
Pros: "We were early"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "Crew and pilot great."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty."
Cons: "On time."
Pros: "Wonderful to fly on a small airline that still believes in service - a free cup of coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit - whereas many larger airlines charge for coffee etc."
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled, crew were informative"
Cons: "Departure was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was great, plenty of food."
Cons: "The announcements ran a bit long toward the end of the flight. Quite a bit long"
Pros: "they got me to LA"
Cons: "food and drink not served for 2 h ours / flight delayed 1hr 45 mins, no choice of meal it was a take it or leave it offer, ice lolly served 2 hours after food and horrid snack before landing - on a 10.5 hour flight not good enough, I will consider another airline next time I go. 3 trips a yr"
Cons: "The people handling the boarding were rude and inefficient. Not a way to staty an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Cons: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Pros: "The seats were nice"
Cons: "They didn't even offer complementary water,we were on the plane for 2 hours almost. Not friendly if you are pregnant or have kids"
Cons: "Flight was over hour and a half late. Flight attendant forgot about me and my drink order on board. They didn’t pick up the trash we had to ask for it. Gate wasn’t ready upon arrival"
Pros: "Excellent crews"
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, very poor entertainment systems, screens too small and kept needing to be reset."
Cons: "Poor entertainment systems Plane too cold Only 1 meal Ran out of gin for the second flight in a row"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that we had to pay for a cup of tea. Surely that should be complimentary."
Cons: "I was not able to make this flight due to many technical difficulties, waiting in lines at the airport for over 4 hours, and having British Airways automatically change my flight booking Gatwick (which is 45 minutes from where this second leg would have been!)."
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Snacks or water had to be purchased No in flight entertainment Crew not so nice"
Cons: "Seat in row ahead was broken, causing it to recline too far and not correctly return upright"
Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return email@example.com or 07799411994 for response"
Pros: "Entertainment system and staff were kind"
Cons: "Food really wasn’t good on this leg for either evening meal or snack first thing."

Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"
Pros: "Despite all the “delays” it actually arrived on time."
Cons: "First it was on time (this morning t-12 hrs) Then it was delayed (delayed incoming flight) Then the plane changed and was on time Then something weird happend, departure was on time, arrival was delayed by 2 hours. Of course, officially there was no delay as departure was still on schedule - but “departure” just means everyone is boarded and plane door is shut, you could still be sitting on an empty stand on the tarmac for two+ hours. Complaints ensued. Captain rerouted plane. Back on time. Arriving at LGW is ridiculous - only 3!!!! THREE! Border nazis manning passport desk for entire south terminal, there must have been at least 700 people queueing. So that delay of 1 hour plus still occurred just within the airport. #ThisIsBrexitBritain #BrokenBritain #PeopleJustDoNothing #NothingWorks #AlexCruzIsACunt"
Cons: "Closed the flight too early and didn't help rebook... cost me thousands of dollars. Lisbon airport was a mess and they didn't even wait 5 minutes after the official end of boarding. Set on the tarmac for 25 minutes, but didn't take passengers in the meantime. No humanity.... never using BA again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and lovely, and all seemed to have a bit of humor to them."
Cons: "They ran out of dinners, and I was not able to check in 24 hours prior to select my seat."
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."

Pros: "Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Good light supper."
Pros: "It was a peaceful flight"
Cons: "BA just don't get holiday travel. They are hopeless at boarding a plane efficiently, the crew appear uncomfortable with charging for food and drinks, etc. BA compares v badly to Easyjet, Ryanair and Norwegian for efficiency and focus when dealing with holiday makers"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving London. Meal choice was again chicken or vegetarian. Not really a choice. Stingy with the wine at dinner."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Slow crew. Same good choices as flight just before"
Pros: "Almost nothing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarded on time then 40 minute delay before take off. After we landed the plane came to a sudden stop and the Captain told us the lights to guide us to the appropriate place were not working this was a long delay. When we got to the disembarking area we had another long wait and the reason was due to the bridge not working,eventually we went out the back of the plane. The most unbelievable problem was the announcement just before take off that both rear toilets were out of action,since the flight was late this was an issue and I do not believe that both toilets could be broken more likely that there was no person available to clean them."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight, only 35 minutes."
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and on time, plane was clean and warm."
Cons: "Did not think this was any better than the budget airlines, I expected more from British Airways, no entertainment on board - food limited, some gifts ran out."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing - and this was Club Europe"
Cons: "Punctuality (lack of). Comfort (lack of). Seat pitch. Food. Cabin crew service. State of aircraft. Price (premium for a budget service)."
Pros: "Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel."
Cons: "Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase."
Pros: "Lots of updates from pilot"
Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
