Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Services were excellent and given on time."
Pros: "Services are the best"
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Cons: "Boarding process, Smart Phone App, food quality, Announcemebts, Time to unboard the plane, flight information displays at Doha are not easy to find the flight info"
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: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Small single aisle plane No wifi, no power ports, no individual screens Qatar is great about serving water but not other drinks -- I bought drinks inside security but there was another round of security at the gate -- they confiscated all of the drinks I bought"
Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Food was above average."
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush. No entertainment guys? Really?"
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Cons: "-Seat comfort - stingy with morning coffee -terrible departing plane"
Cons: "Thx crew seemed s little slow (almost 2 hours) with getting us dinner for a very late night flight (10:45 pm). It just makes for not very much time to sleep."
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Cons: "My flight went well as there was no delay and no issues during the very long flight from Nairobi to Washington DC via Dubai."

Pros: "Comfort and friendly crew and the food was very delicious and not forgetting the entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
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: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."
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: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated 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"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
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."
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."
Pros: "Great entertainment system. Lots of leg room best airline"
Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "There was no leg room at all in economy. My knees were in the seat of the person in front of me. Most of the food was terrible and I only ate the bread. The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "• Food was good •The flight was comfortable and I felt saved •The crew was very nice •The flight was cheap compared with service •The entertainment was excelent but you need to add more songs from Africa ."
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Cons: "Not enough operational toilets"
Pros: "Second time in less than two years and satisfied on both trips. Good work Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "The overall service is great for the airfare price I paid. Can’t complaint! The new plane with central air control was a great idea; it was comfortable for the duration of the ride. That being said, I would definitely use Cathay Pacific again in the future for this price range."
Cons: "The wait time to take off was WAY too long. Luckily the entertainment was available right away on the screen."
Pros: "Disciplined, timeliness."
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Degraded quality of food and drinks"
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. 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: "All went to schedule and flight attendants very good"
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever-"
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance came very late. This aspect can be improved further. It can be more efficient. Although wheel chair assistance is asked, the electric car to move people can also help to compensate for the wait times."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Cathy Pacific is always in the top 10 airlines of the world for a reason. The staff and service are top of class."

Cons: "Delayed 30min in the end."
Pros: "The crew is nice. You can order snacks in between meals."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were automatically placed on another EARLIER flight and we weren't notified. I found out the morning of our original flight, as our new flight was about to board. I still haven't figured out who was responsible for this snafu - the airline or Webjet.com. Webjet customer service was horrible and offensive when I tried to explain to them what happened; they said it was my responsibility to check the time. I would disagree - the customer is ultimately supposed to get an email notifying them of the flight change, giving them options. Based on that phone call with Webjet, I will NEVER do business with them again. As for the flight cancellation issue - if Kayak could help me get to the bottom of this, that would be appreciated."
Pros: "Staff very courteous and helpful Food was average"
Pros: "One of the better airlines for a reason, great overall"
Pros: "Great staff and good service Took care of us like a family thanks"

Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More than 1 hr delay. I had ordered kosher food. They came to show it but it never appeared later. I complained and they broight it: the starter was frozen solid. Eventually i had a fish plate. Not too bad..."
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment."
Cons: "All the food menu options were not available."
Pros: "Staff were excellent Food"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour. Poor communication on delay/flight info."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. 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: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "It was a packed flight and I had the window seat, but I remained seated the entire time.. The selection of entertainment was awesome.."
Cons: "the long flight.."
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: "Seats not comfortable Not great selection of western movies"
Pros: "A350 was very nice. Very quiet, new screens on entertainment system big and easy to use."
