Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."

Pros: "Nothing much except for Hamad Airport ."
Cons: "Food . Seats. Entertainment - half the time , the touch screen doesn’t work."
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: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"
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."
Pros: "I liked how kind and attentive the staff were."
Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
Pros: "i do like service in plane and at the counter no problem with baggage.all ok.thank for good service.sincerly vladimir hodan"
Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."
Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."
Pros: "The check in crew needs training and learning the international rules Also they are missing kindness"
Cons: "Need completely replacement with expert crew"
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"
Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
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: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Cons: "They gave us a small chicken sandwhich for breakfastand the next meel was over 6 hrs later with a small bag of chips in between. I was actually hungry when we got off our 13 hr flight."
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew in both flights from Atlanta to Doha and from Doha to Chennai"
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable for a long flight and i had a very disturbed sleep"
Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple, food was ok."
Cons: "What a terrible flight. There was absolutely no leg room. I'm 180cm but I imagine Qatar airlines have taller passengers. I understand they are trying to squeeze as much money out of their flights as possible but it was to the point of such severe discomfort that my right knee still hurts half a week later. The reason that it hurts so much is that there was a post through the right half of the leg room under my seat, which was already super limited to begin with. DO NOT GET A WINDOW SEAT, WHATEVER YOU DO. It was a 7 hour flight and I was SO MUCH PAIN. Horrific. The flight staff was rude. I will never fly Qatar again under ANY circumstances. I would rather travel months by boat, or even walk for years on end then go through that 7 hour experience. Qatar's cheapness lost them a customer!"
Cons: "Chicken sandwich was not good"
