At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "Q Suite is top-of-line business class product"
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: "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."
Cons: "No HE"
Pros: "Liked the fact that the pre-selected choice of food was served"
Cons: "The quality food was bad. Staff seem to be frustrated more than trying to help."

My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "I actually loved everything about the entire flight experience. Everything was awesome (Minus a 1-hour airport delay that was out of control of the airlines)."
Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"

Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"

Cons: "The Airlines is saying, They notified the travel agent. I did not receive any emails. I was able to do web checkin. Only when i went to the airport, I was told, the flight got cancelled. Had to stay 24 hours in Bangalore. Very BAD service."

Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Cons: "I do not find anything to complain. My first choice will be Emirates."
Pros: "Good like always"
Cons: "All perfect"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Cons: "Laptop bags are not allowed at New Delhi Airport. Only one carry on is allowed with no laptop bag. These are not Emirates policies. New Delhi airport has its own policies. Highly frustrating at that moment because these are not the baggage allowances anywhere else in the world"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"
Cons: "Didn’t like behavior of Dubai airport’s staff. They were too rude and Newark wheelchairs helper were asking for too much tips. Are they allowed to ask for tips and speak rudely with senior citizens. Please give attention towards these problems"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Food, Service, entertainment"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."

Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Nothing as such."

Pros: "Services and schedule and on time departures and arrivals."
Pros: "It was comfortable and efficient."
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."
Pros: "Everything Emirates is the best"

Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"

We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."
Pros: "Can't say anything was better or outstanding."
Cons: "Attitude of Crew Manager - Ms Jacky. She thought of me STUPID who did not know how to use touch screen of personal TV. My personal TV's touch screen wasn't working so I complaint to stewardess, who asked her manager, Ms Jacky to come, she resent the system which worked and then stopped again. I again complaint but by the time Ms Jacky came the system started working again so she said "I did not know how to use touch feature. I was touching it too hard."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Why do people fly with infants?"
Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."
Cons: "My mother has health issues. She is diabetic, and asked for Juice. Air hostess told her they don't have the permission to serve anything for certain period of time. They did not give her Juice, and she was not feeling well. I'll not choose this airline again. Food was ok too"

Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . The route of he flight was long"

Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."

Cons: "Veg meal and breakfast quality was not good. Delhi to hong Kong and from there to LA. Crew member service was not good for economy class."
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Cons: "Food offering"
Cons: "Poor service overall."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the food was okay!!"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, uncomfortable seats & delayed"
Pros: "Service manager Alan and crew were lovely, very friendly and felt genuinely happy to help us. I have never been given so much free stuff on a plane before! The snacks and beverage offerings just kept coming. I enjoyed my warm meal. Entertainment offerings were good, and as we were on a newer plane the technology was better than other flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable and roomy, but they were decent and I didn’t have too much trouble sleeping."
Pros: "The service in the Business Class section on British Airways was phenomenal"
Pros: "Yea the crew members were very polite and nice"
Cons: "There was no charging point in the plane in my returning flight so that was a bit disappointing"
Cons: "they lost my suitcase!!!!"
Pros: "Crew very professional and staff well informed."
Cons: "Feels like a bus in the sky. Same device as Ryanair but not on time."
Pros: "Wonderful crew and flight. A380 smooth and quiet"
Pros: "I appreciated the courteous crew and the blankets. I appreciate the safe trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and I didn't like the $60 baggage check in fee. That's ridiculous. Airplane comfort in economy class is always medium. The main gripe is the $60 cost for the one suitcase."
Pros: "British Air reps took us through security and to the gate for boarding which was most appreciated after our check-in. Once on the plane the flight was great and the crew helpful. I wheel chair was waiting for us when we landed in London."
Cons: "We were told to check in at terminal 2A to British Air for our flight. BA was on the lower floor almost in terminal 2B and there were no signs indicating where we were to find their check-in. When we checked in they initially had no record of our continuing flight on Virgin Atlantic to the US. They checked our bags through to the US but could not give us boarding cards for the 2nd leg of our flight on Virgin."
Cons: "Bit of delay."
Pros: "Seat comfortable, Crew was great."
Cons: "The guy in front of me pushed his seat back and the space was reduced dramatically, even for lunch. Screen was not so good, but pprobably enough"
Cons: "Two hour delay. Got to hotel at 2am."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We had a 30 minute delay for technical reasons leaving JFK and then spent 60 minutes taxiing/waiting to takeoff. During the flight the pilot made up about 15minutes but then a Heathrow circled for 20 minutes this caused us to miss our connecting fight what are it worse is that BAnever todos we had issued our flight even though they knew but the time we landed that we could no take it through security in time . It wa very confusing trying to figure out that we had to reschedule and where and how to do it."
Pros: "Very good aircraft!"
Pros: "Efficient, on time"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and a bare bones plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins to Dublin and flight was delayed 1 hour back to London. No free meals provided"
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: "Traveling business class it felt as if I am traveling in city bus plane was so old seats were falling apart and above all the way ba staff most unfriendly people I was just imagining if this they do in business class what they must be doing in economy class I will not recommend any one to travel from Phoenix to Delhi on B A Jiten"
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew was super nice and helpful"
Cons: "It was a bit crammed"
Pros: "Flight from Delhi got delayed thus missed connection to Montreal . Put on flight to JKF - Montreal , which didn’t made any sense as we live in USA . Thus requested to be placed on flight JFK- BTV. Then that flight was missed by 5-10 mins , plane was still attached to gait as we reach at gait & it was 2240 pm & flight time was 2250. So spend the night At airport floor with two kids & seven people total in party . No compensation was given at all . BA is the only carrier that charge money to pick up seat assignment in advance more 24 hrs ."
Cons: "Everything mentioned in above section ."
Cons: "my ticket was suspended for no reason, asked me get another ticket book , can't board, later a lady ( Sonam ) there in check in counter resolved. The check in Staff Mr. Gaurav at India airport was rude and over smart while talking to me, he pretended he was busy , but who is FREE in this world. Poor experience at the time of check in. and yes Thanks to Sonam who walked extra mile to talk to customer care of british airways and resolved for my ticket. Finally I could board. Even if ticket was suspended why it was not informed me to take any pro active action, why I had to wait in long queue to know that my ticket was suspende, IS IT NOT RESPONSIBILITY OF BA ???"
Cons: "Service was incredibly slow Seats were tight No USB port or charger Tiny entertainment screens Forced to check laptop despite this not being a standard with any other airline for the same route"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment system. Lounge at Heathrow airport served bad food. Bread had fungus in it. I pointed out to the staff there, and there reaction was "no big deal" !! There is such a big difference in"
Pros: "was a very unremarkable flight,"
Cons: "The online check in didn't work. At the airport at check-in I had to wait 15 min to get a boarding pass and a seat allocated as there weren't any available as the company oversells tickets.. that's what they said to me at check in.. When boarding I was told that I needed to check-in my cabinet bag because of the crowded flight, the lady just put a label on the handle of my trolley and said to leave the bag down on my way to the plane.. Thing which of course didn't do... very bad service.. I'll keep traveling with easyJet and reconsider British airways only for a super cheap flight."
Cons: "Got sick with the food I had on flight from Del to London and was puking through my next flight from Lon to Van"
Pros: "Flight was pretty much empty. I had more room to relax."
Cons: "Very old and antiquated video monitors. You can hardly see the videos. Strongly suggest a better plane between London and Washington DC"
Pros: "Good preboarding with wheelchair in JFK a little more hectic in Heathrow but very useful because it is a very long walk."
Cons: "System for communication at Heathrow about what to do when arriving and looking for a wheelchair."
Cons: "2 drunk guys speaking Russian I think totally ruined the flight. They were ridiculously loud, making it impossible to sleep. Drinking multiple wines, they got louder and louder and more animated and sloppy. Really gross and for a 9+ hour flight, not enjoyable. Eventually, a flight attendant gently told them no more to drink and was very good. But it was too late. I have flown a ton and have never heard passengers this loud, in a foreign language. In addition, one of them was quite large with a bald head, thus intimidating. We had a very long day and just wanted to rest and that was not at al possible."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very helpful and accommodating. Even the food was good! Took a pic of my meal and wanted to ask for seconds!"
Cons: "Couldn't get overhead light to shut off."
Pros: "Premium Economy seats were spacious. And from the looks of it so were economy. They provided nice over the ear headsets which made watching movies nice."
Cons: "The food was not that great."
Pros: "The meals are delightful and the people are very respectful."
Cons: "Size of seats in economy"
Pros: "Good seats, good attention to the kids prior boarding."
Cons: "Language with the personnel was a minus. An experienced flight attendant uttered "Jesus F..... Christ" - as a reaction to people getting up before seatbelt signs have been switched off seems fair, the wordage is unacceptable from an airline that ought to be a pillar of decency."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew, comfortable seat and plane."
Pros: "The crew tried to keep me comfortable. Even though I was in a regular seat despite paying for a premium seat"
Cons: "When I reached the boarding gate, the attendant took my boarding pass as if he was checking something and changed my seat without asking me, issued me a new boarding pass... no explanation. I had a long flight to London from Delhi already so I was too tired to immediately realize what he had done. It only occurred to me when I boarded the flight. I had booked a premium seat in advance and had paid $175 extra for it. He basically moved me to a regular economy seat at the back without asking me or refunding me. That's fraud."
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Pros: "787 is new. boarding was mostly efficient, although i was prevented from boarding even though there was nobody in queue due to some rules. food was good. entertainment was pretty complete. crew did well, but their command of english was not as good as one might expect."
Cons: "787 had issues with the window tinting. although it was a day flight, it felt like a night flight, with the expected effects on jet lag and fatigue. also, in premium economy, my seat was in the very last row, next to the toilet with no window, even though it is a window seat. to call a seat the 'window' seat, and then have no window is deceptive."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make the transfer"
Pros: "Live counters for dinner Boarding directly from lounge"
Pros: "Inflight crew was good and polite."
Cons: "Made me go in economy class que to enter the aircraft inspite of I having paid the 3 times more expensive business class ticket. Business class seats were too small and uncomfortable compared to the other airlines. Loos and facilities were not in accordance compared to the other airlines."
Pros: "Great! The flight was smooth, and simple flight. I also love when flights aren't sold out as it allows more room to move around and such."
Pros: "Individually the crew was quite nice and tried to do their best to their best."
Cons: "Dirty toilets. No toilet seat covers. Ran out of toilet paper. No oversight to basic hygiene given a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because I missed the first half of a round-trip flight, even though I phoned several times to explain that I still wanted to use the return trip. This practice seems almost criminal. I paid for the flight, I should have been able to use it."
Pros: "The best the crew"
Cons: "The airbus plane. The seats are the smaller I've seen. Boarding is not very well organized. Pleople should be online and not all together at the door pushing."
Cons: "Old aircraft on sector"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane was new and clean. Entertainment selections were good. Lots of food and drink served. Lots infomercial space for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seating is cramped in Coach. The headrests on the seats have a tendency to push your head forward when the seat is in an upright position. When the seat in front of you reclines, it is difficult to cross your legs or reach for something stored under the seat. It seems to me that given how long passengers are in their seats on overseas trips, that seating should be more comfortable."
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
