Pros: "exellent in everything"
Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
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: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Originally I was assigned a wonderful seat but then I was put in the back by window it was very cramped and noisy. The flight stuff was mediocre and the food was not that good either. Big difference from the flight over"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."
Cons: "my flight was delay 24 hours"
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."
Pros: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff was par excellence in the business class"
Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."
Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"

Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Pros: "Every thing likely"
Pros: "Easy flight. Great food. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is always impressing"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The food was not as good as previous Qatar flights I have taken. Should be more meditarrean/Arabic tastes to suit the passengers."
Pros: "Good boarding. Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Economy seats were too close to others. Entertainment displays on 777 planes didn't react well to touch. Too many large roller bags allowed on plane. Arm rests on A330 and 777 wouldn't go all the way up."
Pros: "Good quantity and variety of shows on in-flight entertainment system which is important on 12+ hour flights."
Cons: "Food quality has gone down. Most flight attendants we encountered had poor attitudes - felt like they were doing us a favor when serving us."
"The stewards didn’t tell me that hot food was unavailable when I asked - that it was coming “later”. I missed the chance to buy snacks that were available. The flight was packed - felt like cattle."
"The flight actually was fine. Just a lot of delays."
Pros: "The space in economy plus. But the crew making sure we had room due to social distancing the best they could with what space they had to work with on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. The flight arrived early and that was great."
Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Pros: "All my expectations were met"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "The airline tried to keep us as comfortable as possible in the airport. The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Since we were in DC, I don't know why it took four hours to bring in another plane, since we were so close to major cities."
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Most of the staff were good and helpful. Chicago had a snow storm and it was frustrating but not their fault...I did get a free drink on the plane for all the delays."
Cons: "The boarding process. Again, not the staff's fault."
Cons: "Due to a previous mishap with my departure flight booked through wasn’t able to use this flight because I had to purchase an entirely new flight through a different airlines. KayakDid nothing to remedy this matter"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed the captain and crew made great effort to get everyone on and off as fast as possible. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather but there wasn’t much anyone can change about that ."
Pros: "Seating was larger than normal for economy. Crew was pleasant and made lots of offers for food and drink. Flight was on time and the luggage arrived unharmed"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Pros: "Fewer seats more space for passengers and ample leg space The food was delicious"
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "The service and welcoming"
Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"
Cons: "Delayed 3 1/2 hours. Mechanical issue. Arrived Newark just now 11:40pm. Will not get home to ct until after 2 am."
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."
Pros: "Informative Gate Attendant Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "I couldn't take my computer bag on board and had to empty it because of the small space overhead. Bozeman airport was very nice. Easy to maneuver in the airport."
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Cons: "Everything, but mostly the fact that with absolutely zero warning they wouldn't allow my wife to carry on her roller bag.because we purchased economy tickets. Forced us to check the bag and pay for it. Almost missed our flight. Plus the staff was super rude and acted like they were doing us some grand favor."
Pros: "Easy on ! Organized"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, attentive and brought extra water without asking."
Cons: "I do not like the "something Asian chicken- or pasta" selection, never taste good."
Pros: "Amazing first time doing a first class flight and loved it!!! I would highly recommend it to my friends! Thank you"
Pros: "Free movies on the plane, because of errors."
Cons: "4 hour delays both ways. We missed our connection flight due to delays on the way home. That connection was the last flight out of that airport home. We ended up having to sleep in the airport overnight, because United wouldn't pay to put us in a hotel even though the delay was because of a mechanical error on the plane. Our 5 hour flight turned into a big ordeal."
Cons: "Everything, TSA agent said my guess is as good as his when and if we are leaving I was upset at that kind of response. Never will use united ariline agian."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The flight attendant's were extremely welcoming. I will fly United again."

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Cons: "Polaris class - the configuration felt like a military transport. The business class configuration was like a pig sty.... bad bad. Seats facing backward..... but the look was like a crowded economy with flat beds. Looked like a college dorm. I've sworn never to fly United ever. I'll pay $2000 extra to avoid legs where they are flying. Food - flushable. Don't offer vegetarian food if you can't prepare it. I'll carry some Taco Bell. Horrendous. Service excellent, courteous people and prompt attention."
Pros: "I liked that my flight was on time and fast boarding."
Cons: "Paying the extra for my baggage. It was only one bag to check and had to pay an extra $50 for round trip."
Pros: "I don't like it"
Cons: "It was the worst flight I ever had in my life, first of all our flight from phenx( arezoina) to New York beget canceled and the company put us in a very bad hot for one night,then they changed our plane to Philadelphia which our flight from there to newhampshire got had be late for more than 3 hours. You are the worst company in this world."
