Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
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: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Hotel to freshen up was great idea"
Cons: "Visa took forever. Ended having only 2 hours at the hotel"
Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"

Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "The check in crew needs training and learning the international rules Also they are missing kindness"
Cons: "Need completely replacement with expert crew"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Great service. Easy. Comfortable."
Cons: "Only 2.5 meals in 16 hours!"
Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."
Pros: "Crew were nice as always and the toilets were clean."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't that great and food was disappointing. My meal was cold and unappetizing. Vegetarian food can be delicious and vegetarian meals used to be good in QA. I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "One of the best flights in the past 5 years! 5 gold star service!"
Cons: "Wonderful friendly and helpful crew and check in staff. Excellent food and service. On time departure and arrival. Help with bags during the check in process."
Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean plane and airport. Only reason for choosing Qatar airways was cheapest fare."
Cons: "Few crew members attitude and services are highly unprofessional. Everything at Doha airport is way more expansive than neighboring international airports. Food quantity and quality in flights is below average. Security at Doha airport are highly unprofessional and have no respect for passengers and their privacy."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."
Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could not sleep... Need more room"
Cons: "Even though we got off our connecting flight 30 mins before departure, the flight had "already left" as per the Qatar Doha crew and we were re-booked to the following day's flight. Very ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"
Pros: "Got there safely."
Cons: "The seats are miserable small and uncomfortable. More options for snacks for the cost of the ticket!!!"
Pros: "Free snack and drink"
Cons: "Complicated check in process for basic economy. Sat on tarmac for 30 min for gate to open up. Crew was not knowledgeable. No food, no WiFi."
Pros: "on time! United lounge was amazing!"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "The effort of the crew to do as much as they could. Even at basic econ fare. Profits dictate. People are crammed as much as possible. We felt like folding chairs. But what can be done?"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "Telling the truth"
Cons: "More room in seats"
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: "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: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Pros: "Good plane good entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Attendants could not put could together. I bought business ckass tickets to my daughter and her husbandfie their honeymoon. They could not use the business lounge: when they arrived they were told that they needed to wait in front of the boarding gate. They waited two hours asking many times why they could not get their seats. They were ordered to stand by and wait to be called. Finally they insisted and they got two sits but not side by side. It was too late to use the business class lounge. What a shame. Food was so basic. Noodles overcooked with few veggies that all. Cabin attendants we're stressed and rude"
Pros: "I did arrive in Boston, eventually."
Cons: "The flight took off approximately 3.5 hours behind schedule and we boarded the flight and waited inside the aircraft for 2.5 hours...why did they do that? The flight attendants were offering water and trying to be as helpful as they could be.... but we're inside the plane, not going anywhere, so not much extra they can do."
Pros: "Once again they ran out of the main course and only had cheese and crackers. What’s joke for first class"
Cons: "Food service"
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."
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: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The customer service was good. Smooth flight, no delays!"
Cons: "A couple planes I got on were old and very small. The WiFi was difficult to use."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Our flight home was Great. At kona airport the flight crew was Amazing, the captain even let my daughter set in the driver seat, which is something she will never forget."
Cons: "Downside there was no onboard t.v.s which makes 4 hours seem long."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Pros: "I liked the good options on the flight and the picture menu, the uncomplicated boarding and great check in service"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The flight got us back home alive."
Cons: "mechanical delays in Tokyo with only fair communication especially after we were in the plane."
Cons: "It was unclear that the check-in was through United in terminal 1, not through Lufthansa.So we were at terminal 4 and it took us an hour to get to check-in at terminal 1. Also the entertainment at my seat was not working so no movies for 9+hrs."
Cons: "Outrageous baggage fees cause a huge traffic jam in the aisle at boarding and disembarking due to overloaded carryon baggage. This causes huge problems for already cranky travellers and slowing down your process of clearing your planes. No wonder air rage has been in the news so much lately. Won't be flying United anytime soon."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "Flight was on time & not completely full."
Cons: "The terminals for plane changes are TOO far apart!!"
Cons: "Seat of 1.5 hours on board the flight, but understand it's beyond the airlines control"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Staff in main cabin was nasty"
Cons: "4 hour delay. Maintenance issue. We were told Only one maintenance person covering the entire airport"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "The helpfulness of the representative at HNL."
Cons: "Last minute 17 hr "delay" Screwed out of an entire day in Hawaii. Dream vacation ruined. No car, no hotel, no time to see Honolulu. Awful."
Pros: "Barb M. was at the front desk at the United Lounge. She is an incredibly kind human being. I was very sick and this flight was delayed so it was going to cause me to miss my connecting flight overseas. She tried all that she could to rebook me on a different flight but the problem was the destination's air traffic control, not the airplane, so it wasn't going to fix the problem. I was able to rebook my connecting flight, at a cost, but at least I wasn't going to miss it. Barb went and made me hot tea with fresh ginger, mint leaves, and honey for my throat. Through a difficult situation, she was a ray of sunshine and kindness."
Cons: "Every time I travel United, it is delayed. I don't understand why. In this situation the problem was the airline so I understand that is beyond what United controls."
Pros: "Great view. My wife and 3 year old's seats were separated and I had bought a ticket on this flight home at the last minute so my seat was quite far away. The gate agent went above and beyond by loving some people and putting all three of us together!"
Pros: "Flight and service experience was good."
Cons: "Pre check not added to boarding passes"
Pros: "Excellent service. I love Kayak is the best!"
Pros: "I did not like the plane ride. There were way to many things to comment on. Most importantly everyone of my.flights was delayed."
Pros: "Although plane was delayed 45 minutes, the crew was attentive and did a nice job."
Cons: "A snack basket for first class? I understand it's a red eye, but I believe a better effort is needed on the food end. A hot towel would've been nice after a long red eye as well."
Pros: "First class seats were ok, economy were tolerable"
Cons: "Delayed 1hr45m from CUN to CHI 1hr was on the tarmac (really?). Had last seats that don't recline. On the way down we were first class and the processed chicken with rice was bad, also delayed an hour from ORD to MEX. TV did not work in economy, none in first. No power outlets in either flight. Maybe I'm done with united?"
Cons: "I never made it on the flight due to weather conditions they couldn't even hold the flight, and then when I have to get my own accommodations had to pay for my own hotel that is not cool"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentative"
Cons: "Nothing stood out, no one went above and beyond. When boarding, a flight attendant said there was no room in the overhead for my carry on and told me I had to check in my bag. When I finally boarded the flight, there were many empty spaces that could have fit my carry on"
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "I scanned my boarding pass with my cellphone."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't friendly. They were rude. They NEVER shared their expectations for good passengers. Instead they just wasted a lot of time correcting passengers' bad behaviors. Got half a cup of juice with lots of ice. Thirsty all the time. I never could go and use the restroom."
Pros: "I guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "I did not like that the check in in Mexico started late. They took a while to start boarding the plane. I do not like that United now charges for luggage. Mine was small. I did not like that the seats were uconfortable. I am short and there is not much leg room. There was no entertainment. When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "United has squeezed its Economy class customers into seats that are tolerable only for the shortest. If I were an inch or so taller, I would have found the space intolerable. As it was, my knees were against the seat in front. For a flight as long as this one (over 5 hours from Anchorage to Denver), it was uncomfortable to say the least. The middle of the plane was nearly empty, because United charges $75 per seat for an upgrade. For the round-trip for two of us, that would have added $300 to our bill. The fact that so few are willing to pay the upgrade fee indicates that the increment is too large."
