Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Hyderabad to Doha and they did not allow us to board the flight as connecting flight from Doha to Dallas would have been left. They did not have seats for next day , the earliest we could go was 2 days later. They did not apologize or compensate for delay."
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: "Unable to reserve any seats so ended up with the family split all over the plane"

Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."
Cons: "Can't find any fault...Sorry!"
Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."

Pros: "The insight service was good. Kind and welcoming attitude of the stewards are appreciated. There was no guile but genuine"

Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"
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: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "Short Leg, Crew Happy, pilot very informative, food was good, until the next flight (long haul) I got the same food. 2 seats together at the very back row. Checkin and boarding were fine"
Cons: "The toilet flushed when I was still on the toilet seat. Happened again on the long haul sector. The take a very long time to switch on the entertainment and turn it off as soon as decent commences- so if you have air traffic problems - it could be off for an hr before and after takeoff and landing. unnecessary as most people have their own headsets as well. We"
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment.

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing."

Pros: "Very gd service"
Pros: "Great cabin staff"

Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Pros: "Same good entertainment. Flight left and landed on time. Breakfast was enjoyable but they had ran out of options so I didn’t get a choice, but still enjoyed what I got (banana bread)"
Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."
Pros: "Nothing. Would never take this airline again. And would tell everyone to never take this airline."
Cons: "I checked in 10 hours early for my flight and no one told me that I was bumped out of my flight because they were overbooked until one hour before takeoff. Then a gate attendant had the nerve to ask me if I was Vip. When I said no, she said she couldn’t help me and I had to wait for the next flight which was the next day. When I complained to a manager, they let me through security to get on standby for the flight and I was the last one to get on the flight. Their service is awful!!"
Cons: "Food can be better (and has been in the past). Limited choice in entertainment. Crew could be more polite"
Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."
Pros: "The staff is great, friendly and attentive. Lounge is comfortable, with good staff as well."
Cons: "I must admit that the food choices is not great. You are catering to international crowd not only emaratis. In general the planes are good, but the smaller older ones are not that comfortable. The older 777 configuration is very uncomfortable, comparing to the 787. When you need to slitly recline, there is no need for the whole chair to come forward in attempt to creat a bed for you. These are little things that need to be addressed when purchasing planes."
Pros: "Great service, good economy food also, lots of wine. The entertainment package was really good."
Cons: "only one meal served on flight Manchester to Dubai, had to ask many times to get drinks."

Cons: "4 hours trip, international, and only food to purchase."
Cons: "Much better"
Cons: "Business class on the 3.5 hour flight was just blocking the middle seat in the front of the plane. No leg room, narrow seats. My husband is 6’4”” with wide shoulders. His legs do not fit and therefore extend into the aisle. Flight attendants were constantly bumping into his shoulders. Very cramped We were not aware of this configuration."
Cons: "Food was awful."
Cons: "On time."
Pros: "Staff were professional and courteous"
Cons: "This was an old plane. Seats not as comfortable, and entertainment system was lacklustre."
Pros: "the crew was attentive."
Cons: "the seats are extremely crammed, the boarding process was so disorganized people were yelling at the staff...anyone they could find to vent. boarding passes had to be re-scanned, people had to be removed-assigned seats and no explanation was given"
Cons: "I am disappointed that BA has moved over to a few for service refreshments policy. It appeared that nothing was being offered for free- not even tea or coffee which in my opinion is below par for an airline like BA."
Pros: "crew were good, food was ok in premium economy."
Cons: "being in club class or first class"
Pros: "Clean plan that was only slightly delayed"

Cons: "Free food"
Cons: "Better business class seats"
Cons: "Very delayed - both on takeoff and on landing"
Cons: "When we boarded the plane it was a bot chaotic, quite a few people were sitting in the wrong seats (including someone sitting in mine). There was also a delay in departing because of weather (which isnt the airlines fault) but maybe a complimentary bottle of water would have been nice."
Pros: "Selection of films was good"
Cons: "BA business class is getting tired and very odd configuration. Ran out of choices for food and breakfast looked like there was not enough to go round. Overnight flight, but food not served for about hour and half, and breakfast served 2 hours before landing."
Pros: "On time, standard flight for BA no frills airline."
Cons: "Not the best organised inflight service,"
Pros: "This was a long flight for us but the entertainment and food options were great and kept us comfortable the whole time."
Cons: "Nothing really. It was a great flight."
Pros: "Food was ok. That was it."
Cons: "Old aircraft. No leg room. No air con above the seat. Very stingy with drinks. Never again with BA"
Pros: "First class check in was smooth and efficient ! Love the passage way that lead me directly to lounge"
Cons: "Service in the lounge should be improved and there is no clear direction of which gate ie Gate 10A / C / E etc when boarding . Had to check a few times to ensure it’s the right gate"
Pros: "The pilot kept us in the terminal when he found out that we were delayed due to fog in London. I appreciated waiting in a more comfortable, open space rather than on the plane. I was also impressed with how the controllers and schedulers in London handled the delays so that I had not problem making my connection. And as things turned out, the second leg of the trip went so well that we reached our destination on time despite a one-hour delay."
Cons: "I'd like to see British Airways consider at the very least giving their customers a cup of coffee or tea on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "The smooth journey in the sky"
Cons: "The fact that BA flights even morning ones are always behind schedule"
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Cons: "Food - my dog wouldn’t eat it, Entertainment - woeful same movie just different title, Late again they must specialise in being late"

Pros: "Supposedly great aircraft. Good crew and good service"
Cons: "Economy seats cramped for elbow room. Average in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Very hot airplane before take off"
Cons: "BA took us onboard, flew us 40 minutes into Frankfurt and they decided there was a mechanical problem and returned back into Heathrow. The next plane did not arrive until 5 hours later, which lead to missing the connection flight. We were asking for updates and nobody knew anything. We asked to be changed to different airline and they could even do that. They did not compensate or pay anything, which is unacceptable. Horrible customer service."
Pros: "The title says it all"
Cons: "One should not have to pay for a drink on that flight. it is too long. If it were less than an hour, I would understand."
Pros: "We got to London safely"
Cons: "This was a two leg flight. The British Airways leg between Athens and London was one of the worst flight I have had in the past few years. I will never fly BA in within Europe again! Passengers are required to pay for a glass of water The flight reminded me of attending a professional sporting event. The flight crew is turned into food, beverage, and merchandise vendors. London Heathrow Airport is one of the worst international airports in Europe."
Cons: "This is a 3.5 hour flight, early in the morning (meaning people are up hours in advance). No snacks and no water are a terrible idea. It seems that this is something like a strategy for trips to/from Athens. It is not a small/fast flight by any means and water should be offered and not charged at ridiculously high prices. Not enough space for a slightly taller people. Emergency exit seats which have more legroom were priced extra and way expensive. PS: it was too cold in that plane."
Pros: "Pilot kept us informed of delay status - gross delay b/c of French air traffic strike."
Cons: "Ran out of food, slowest beverage serve ever experienced. NO staff greeting passengers who were very late and missing connections (about 3/4 of passengers) insane and grossly inefficient boarding system was mass chaos - boarded passenger in buses by priority leaving some buses 90% empty with large crowds waiting to board."
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and accommodating for passengers"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Cons: "paying over £200 for a one way 3 hour ticket and having to buy food on the plane."
Pros: "All BA personnel from check-in to landing were outstanding, professional."
Cons: "I had requested and been assured there would be a wheelchair waiting at Heathrow to transport me to my connecting flight in terminal 3. I never got one. We kept being told to walk to another place and there would be one. This went on all the way to the plane which was already boarding."
Pros: "on time, safe, not crowded,"
Cons: "no water or anything without paying extra. blase crew."
Pros: "I chose British airway relying on safety record depite being comparatively expensive."
Cons: "The outer seat arm was faulty. It couldn’t be folded back, so getting out or in was very difficult. It is certainly risky in case of emergency . I asked the hostess to report it. Nothing complementary offered to passengers .Other reputable airlines do, such as a drink , or chocolate bar ."
Cons: "2 Hour Delay"
Pros: "Good schedules and reliable flights."
Cons: "Is there anything that America does poorly that the UK will not follow with? Does BA really wish to compete with Easyjet? No meals on a 3.5 hour flight? Extra payments for everything? Sorry, I will not fly Delta or United transatalantic because I have a choice. I guess I should switch back to Lufthansa or Swiss."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great crew members and boarding was immaculate."
Cons: "Good flight, however I could see that not only my children were bored after an hour into the flight. Entertainment would be beneficial for BA to introduce asap."
Pros: "Troy was very helpful and entertaining"
Cons: "No white wine"
Pros: "The inflight crew was great. The film sound failed part of the way into the flight."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic and confused. Many passengers complained. But the MUCH bigger issue was we weren't told until we got to the airport that NO bags were included as part of the fare. We had three (we are traveling around the world). Yes, when I looked back at the bottom of the reservation there was a note that said bags not included, but as this is such a significant thing, I think it should be made much clearer. I direct feature films and travel a great, great deal. I rarely make my own reservations, to be fair, but I still think this is worth noting. In the end I just bumped my wife and I up to Business class, but for others who can't afford it, I think you should make this clearer. I will write to your facebook page etc later in the hope you will get the message. That said, again, your flight crew was great."
Cons: "Flight was no better than a low cost airline. Almost 4h flight with no food/snack and NO DRINKS."
