Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "very comfortable seats. on time arrival."
Cons: "the food is not very good."

Pros: "Nice, clean efficient. Comfort was good."
Cons: "The crew was great but pretty impersonal. Not a great selection of movies."

Pros: "Food delicious! Flight attendants very attentive, helping with babies and really doing more than I’ve ever seen."

Cons: "Flight attendants rude to travel companion . Non Korean but speaks Korean. When addressing two flight attendants on Korean, they insisted on responding in English, rather than continuing in Korean. Travel companion not happy."

Cons: "Overall experience is good."

Cons: "Being notified in advance that the flight was going to be delayed 40 minutes instead of waiting until the scheduled boarding time to say there was a delay and the delay time was undetermined."

Pros: "Wouldn’t allow me to board with no explanation and the third party company Flyus.com is a complete rip off"
Cons: "Use better companies to book your tickets"

Pros: "The crew, as always, was super professional, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The plane was neat and clean, I was pleasantly surprised with personal items like tooth paste, tooth brush, and slippers. And I was thrilled that you served wine with food as well. That goes a long way!"
Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"

Pros: "food"

Pros: "The music of kpop"
Cons: "Would have been good if there’s more korean drama available on the trip and some kimbap food too"

Pros: "Great leg room even for tall person. Food is good and there's enough choices."

Pros: "The crew was great. The technology is great. I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "I wish I had more water."

Cons: "Boarding Gate at JFK Airport literally has no seats for the passengers! You have to wait in other gates. They should do something about it."

Pros: "Very clean and polite flight crew."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose my seat at 24hr check in so I was stuck in the middle and getting out was awkward as I would have to wait for person in aisle seat to eat, wake up or get up themselves."

Pros: "The Koreans are masters at whatever they do, super clean, polite and attentive. Always a smile. I'd fly with them anytime."
Cons: "They tend to keep the plane a tad warm and no individual "fresh air" control over head."

Pros: "Great service on board and the shiny new Terminal 2 at ICN didn't hurt!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Cleanliness, super efficient, helpful, competent, gracious crew - among the very best in the world of airlines! Politeness and smiling courtesy defines KAL. The spacious seats are best for six footers like me - legroom wise."
Cons: "It used to be my and my wife’s favorite airline. But the warm and dry air in the cabin dry our throats and nasal cavities and make travel so uncomfortable! My wife suffered twice with coughs and respiratory illness. I’m traveling by myself in this trip. She avoids KAL. Food is sparse and ordinary unlike before."

Pros: "The staff was courteous and kind"
Cons: "My luggage took over an hour and my 1 bag was covered in a sticky mess that looked like eggs!!! It was gross and they wanted me to fill out a complaint form. That is just unsanitary!!! No form is going to fix that!"

Cons: "During 14 hour flight, meals were served at the beginning and at the end which comes to 10 hours in between. Between the two meals, they offered a snack of banana or brownie. My wife and I were starving. Terrible!"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "I know you are not the only airline that does this, but the seats are cramped. I am not a big guy. I can't imagine what a heavier or tall person goes through in those economy seats."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and leg room space was more than other flights"

Pros: "I have flown a great many long haul flights and this airline is right up there in the top ranks. Excellent flight crew and comfortable seats."

Pros: "Seats reasonably comfortable, service decent"
Cons: "3 of my 4 flight legs were considerably delayed, my luggage not making the connection for one of them. A friend also flying Korean also had delays making me think they are unreliable and extremely disorganized. I don't know what they'll do when they're really busy for the Olympics. Entertainment OK but ANA has much more."

Pros: "Once we were on board. the service was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 24hrs which is not the fault of Korean airlines however Boarding was so disorgainsed with no information on the process, almost no priority boarding. We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"

Cons: "cheated by kayak. I paid full pay as mention on your wave sight but did not provide the hotel for 20 hours plus long transit. I spend 20 hours plus at the airport without any support form staff. Korean air please don't accept any ticket agent who will give a ticket to passengers with 20 hours transit time and no accommodation. good Korean air but bad kayak."

Pros: "some area the A/C does not work"

Pros: "Korea Airlines is the best!"

Pros: "다 좋은데 한가지 불만사항 : 인터넷에서 구매했다는 이유로 Mileage 로 Upgrade 가 안된다는데 그럼 KAL 대리점도 없는 이곳에서 mileage 는 언제 사용 ?"

Pros: "Boarding, food, airplanes"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Services are great, the people are kind."
Cons: "Lines for the bathroom mid flight."

Pros: "I liked the fewer seats. Ready to get out of."
Cons: "Constant turbulence made going to the bathroom troublesome"

Pros: "Great Service, enough leg room for someone who is 75 inches in height, good food, and an on-time arrival."

Pros: "I really liked how Korean Air had the next flights gate information on my boarding passes."

Pros: "I liked their positive & happy attitudes as well as their work ethic."
Cons: "Perhaps there could have been a larger & wider selection of movies. I would have liked to have had a hard copy menu so that I could make a more informed choice with my meals."

Cons: "Their movie offering is a bit limited."

Pros: "The friendliness of the Korean employees was outstanding - always had a nice smile and very courteous. My husband and I flight economy and usually when we fly long distance we will try to upgrade to comfort seating so legs aren't cramped (additional cost with Delta airlines) . With the Korean airlines the economy comfort seating was not an option but then actually not needed since the leg room was quite adequate. The blankets and other amenities for the flight were a nice touch with the blankets being very nice and cozy."
Cons: "The Korean airlines line at airport in Shanghai for ticketing and handing off of luggage was way too long. We thought arriving at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours prior to flight plenty of time for checking in but had to scramble to get to flight in time. With the menu - certainly was offered enough food but would like to see a vegetarian option as to meal."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Seats weren't too bad. Decent selection of movies, but have had better. USB plug at every seat. Ordered vegetarian meal but didn't arrive."
Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal that I ordered so was pretty hungry."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ample leg room for 6'1" bigger guy."
Cons: "Boarding was a mad rush. Didn't matter if you were section 1 or 2 or 57. People were cutting, and putting their 7 carry on bags over your seat. I felt like the food was better on the shorter leg. Sharing 2 bathrooms with 300 other people should be a crime! Exaggerating, but the lines got ridiculous especially after each meal. The crew seemed haggard and overworked. They were prompt to answer the 'call attendant' button. Also not knocking it, if it's airline policy, but I had 1 beer with each meal (3) during the 15 hour leg, and with the 3rd Hite I had 3 attendants come up and verify my order of a beer and said they were cutting me off? But it's ok to walk around the aisles with wine bottles and fill up cups left and right the entire flight? Just kind of a weird stigma is all."

Pros: "Korean Air service is second to none. The attendants are kind, always a friendly face and beautiful. At checkin service the attendant was kind enough to notice that my travel partner and I would enjoy an aisle and window seat together without a middle seat occupant and seated us accordingly. Thoughtful. Attendants periodically walked the aisles to let guests know that they were available always. Five stars!!"

Pros: "Very happy with flight. I haven't been disappointed with Korean Air, which I have chosen a couple times for my business trips to Thailland."
Cons: "Normally the food is very good. This time the chicken and rice had a lot of fat on the meat. Other than that there were no problems."

Pros: "Friendly staff, clean facility, good food and good entertainment selection."
Cons: "The long waiting line at ticketing area."

Pros: "Made you realize it is possible to have good food Oma plane"
Cons: "Ran out of choices"

Pros: "I like the clean atmosphere of the plane The stewardessses were professionals and never condescend to keep the plane clean. The movies were good."
Cons: "food was so so."

Pros: "Delays on both legs, but major snow storms at both departure points. Lucky to have gotten out."

Pros: "Comfortable flight and crew were all very friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Better seat cushions"

Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "The crew and the service"

Pros: "Crew was super nice and the food was good (for plane food)! Really appreciated that they had snacks and chocolate on hand for hungry passengers throughout the flight. A 17 hour plane ride is never the best, but Singapore Air made it as pleasant as possible. Also, we booked on Kayak and was routed through a third party vendor JustFly, which I was a little worried about - but our booking went off without a hitch."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew miss my drink"

Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"

Pros: "Excellent crew and very well dressed and always smiling"
Cons: "The lights were switched off for a very long time. That can be avoided"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and made extra effort to meet special requests from passengers."

Pros: "Excelent"
Cons: "I recomended yo my friend"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous, went above and beyond."

Pros: "Flight was very pleasant and enjoyable, on time for both departure and arrival."
Cons: "Meals were served rather slow as we were last for row 45 but there was insufficient time for us to finish the meal, collection of trays started in 5 minutes time"

Cons: "We had to go through security after coming in from international and I went through a biometric scanner which I’ve done 100’s of Times I was very unnecessarily felt up for 10 minutes. I had shorts and a T-shirt on, and was pretty sure after the 1st round of groping that there was nothing there"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."

Cons: "My moslem meal selection wasn’t provided onboard"

Pros: "The crew werr very helpful and patient and so many languages they knew. Impressive they need a raise"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable I slept 30 min at a time on my 14hr flight. The food is nice but a bit bland the first time its amazing but after more than 2 planes mix it up plz"

Cons: "The hot food was dry and lost my appetite"

Cons: "Singapore airlines use their antique aged flights for services to chc.unconfortable and a poor in-flight entertainment system"

Cons: "We ask for wheelchair help from Perth to brooome but it was not provided ."

Pros: "Wow they did not disappoint flight attendants Overdid themselves with amazing service planes are super clean and entertainment systems are state of the art great job Singapore Airlines can’t wait to fly with you again you definitely earned your #1 ranking"

Pros: "Satisfied and feel good on Singapore airlines, definitely will consider next trip"

Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The food for Premium Economy was very poor. The choices were substandard and the food at some meals was inedible. Very disappointing for the price of the tickets. The cabins and equipment seemed old and jaded."

Pros: "The attentiveness of the flight attendants and the new plane."

Pros: "Top notch service. Very comfortable in business class. Very attentive. Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "Everything From the food to the drinks to the comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."

Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Seating arrangement was bad"

Cons: "leg space."

Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."

Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines and they delivered"

Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"

Pros: "Helpful staff and a comfortable trip. A plus all the way around"

Pros: "Service is very good."
Cons: "Too warm/hot inside the cabin throughout the flight."

Pros: "All went great"
Cons: "I liked all - end to end excellent service"

Pros: "Everything is excellent!"

Pros: "The sevice was on point. Flight attendants were beautiful and worked harder than any other airline I have been on. The uniforms were on point too. The television had every new movie you could watch. Food, for an airline, was great. All drink service was included. Best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."

Pros: "The hot towels, the legroom in economy, exceptional service. The helpful crew who don't hesitate to help with luggage. The choice of entertainment. The convenience of a direct SFO to SIN flight with a fast connection to Indian cities."

Pros: "Always great and efficient service. Comfortable despite the limitations of the plane itself (don't particularly like Airbus planes)."
Cons: "Wish the food could have been better and the choice for dessert wider."

Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."

Pros: "Great entertainment, good service, clean plane."
Cons: "The lasagna was pretty dry and meh."

Pros: "To be able to bring luggage up to 30 kilo's"
Cons: "The TRICK of so-called 'auction' to buy an economy plus Seat . One may end up with a middle seat . Felt personally ' cheated' . Will not do this again"

Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but other than that, flight was great."

Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"

Cons: "Cabin was too hot once premium curtains were closed"

Pros: "Entertainment and board WiFi excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise, at least 200 m walking in the light rain, no previous warning."

Pros: "See previous notes."
Cons: "See previous notes."

Pros: "I liked sleeping for 10 hrs & arriving in AKL ready to roll!"
Cons: "I paid for seats, but there is no record of my purchase at NZ air."

Pros: "Everything. Air NZ has the best Premium Economy class in the sky."
Cons: "All good."

Pros: "I really liked how instructions were said clearly with visuals, in particular, the video at the start of the flight. It brought a sense of relief and wonder. I enjoyed the lunch I had too. The lamb curry is sublime. I would have it every day to be honest. I was also lucky that I had passengers who sat next to me, who were kind and lovely."
Cons: "Only the take off from the flight. It made me dizzy and nautious."

Pros: "The crew, the food, overall experience was great!"
Cons: "Use less plastic"

Cons: "Very nice services"

Pros: "Super easy"

Pros: "Business class lay-flat seats and a private cubby."
Cons: "Boarding required a bus ride to a distant terminal rather than direct boarding from the terminal."

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "The crew member in my section was amazing, he went out of his way to greet each and everyone of us individually. The flight was comfortable, boarding a breeze and on time!"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."

Cons: "The boarding was inconvenient. LAX has just been updated. Gerri g a bus out to the tarmac is something I expect in Africa. Can Air NZ move to a different terminal?"

Cons: "Generally ok for econ"

Cons: "I was not able to travel. When I reached the airport, I was told that I needed a transit visa for my 1.5 hr stopover in Auckland."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Airline was awesome .. seem less"

Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."

Pros: "Our stewardess was very helpful for our tight connection. She helped with instructions on finding our next gate and gave specific information on making the airport easier to maneuver."
Cons: "On time fights would have made our day better and less stressful."

Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"

Pros: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."

Pros: "Great pitch"
Cons: "All good: 777:300"

Pros: "trivia was fun"

Pros: "Fast transit connections in Auckland, Good times for departure/arrival"
Cons: "When I booked I chose seats, then the aircraft changed and I ended up with the family split. It would have been nice if they had at least sent an email giving me a chance to select new seats"

Pros: "Entertainment was great and even leg room was decent for economy seating"
Cons: "There are no personal air vents. I was sweating for 3/4 of the flight and had to ask for the air to be turned down 3 times. The air vents they do have point inwards and do not get the window seats at all. Hope the return flight is better"

Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."

Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Cons: "All the staff were in the lounge meaning paid users were turned away. Upgrade denied by staff working in lounge because all staff had been allocated the business class seats. Staff should be bumped for paying airpoints members."

Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."

Cons: "I double booked the flight on Nov 27 to Sydney from Queenstown through Kayak while I had another flight booked on the same date to Christchurch from Auckland for the same 2 people and Kayak did not warn me that I had already booked the flight on the 27th. It was my fault but I would appreciate if Kayak warned me. Otherwise all is good. Thanks"

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Cons: "The staff asked for my return ticket to the U.S. I told them I have a round trip ticket from and to Japan. I have to show them my U. S. Navy identification card otherwise Air New Zealand would not have processed my boarding pass ticket. Air New Zealand discriminates."

Pros: "As has been my prior experience with Air New Zealand, I found the trip to be virtually flawless. The boarding process was smooth and efficient, the crew was great and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, the food was good, and I had lots of choices on the IFE system. For flying cattle class on a 15 hour flight, I arrived reasonably rested and content."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the extra $60 I had to pay in order to get a window seat got me just that. There was no additional room either length- or width-wise and no other advantages other than the window. I would not pay for that "privilege" again and I'm sorry to see that ANZ has stooped to the level of its American counterparts."

Cons: "I was not able to pay for excess luggage online because I was told that I had to do it 48 hours in advance. I did not know I need and extra bag until the day before i left. So instead of paying the 1 dollar promotional fee advertised online i have to pay 191 dollars at the airport. That is ridiclous."

Pros: "Crew working hard and going the extra mile to alleviate systemic issues like overcrowding in economy, glitches with electronics, etc. They're resolutely cheerful and efficient."
Cons: "Air NZ are, like everyone else, packing more people in a plane: 10 across in economy, where it used to be 8. No upgrade option I could exercise, even though I've got plenty of miles and do this trip every 6 months, because of the fare class I booked through Kayak."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment good"
Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was professional and very friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic. The seats were even comfortable and we were in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything exceeded expectations."

Pros: "I was recovering from a cold and didn't anticipate having ear problems but during decent I began to experience some pain. It was all new to me as I had never been through this before. Fortunately the crew was kind and they provided a sinus decongestant in a cup for me to sniff and breath in so the smell could open up my nasal passages and it helped a bit."
Cons: "The sharp decent while arriving."

Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The business class on Air New Zealand is the space and comfort level all airlines should have in all classes of seating. I could comfortably fly to Europe from California in business class on this airline."

Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"

Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."

Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."

Cons: "Using a 777 meant longer check in time and was much longer arrival time and baggage collection. Meant I was stuck in Auckland traffic because of the extra time"

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "coming back to work"

Pros: "Significantly more leg room than other competitors! Even with the person's chair reclined in front of me, I was still able to be comfortable. The staff were excellent, the food was as good as can be (given that it is airline food), the choices for entertainment were great. Lots of overhead storage!"
Cons: "Some of the screens need to be refurbished. The person in the seat behind me had to jab at their screen to make it work (or perhaps they were too lazy to be conscientious?). Mine worked fine but I had to be very cognizant to leave my finger on the screen rather than poke."

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."

Pros: "The best service I've ever had with seamless rebooking and escorted followthrough to make my return flight. Even my luggage made it throughout the short interval layovers!"

Pros: "Everything was on time, comfortable & smooth, online checkin was clear & easy. Helpful, responsive staff at every level. A million times better than my other travel leg with United (but that's nothe saying much...)"

Pros: "Very nice and accommodating crew!"

Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."

Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."

Pros: "Excellent service on both flights. Truly a 5 star experience. Well done Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "The customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."

Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."

Cons: "The service and the aircraft with QSuites were superb."

Pros: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"

Pros: "Excellent seats..."

Pros: "On screen entertainment"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

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: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"

Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."

Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"

Pros: "The in flight service was great.. Crew was excellent."

Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."
Cons: "So the seats while comfy are not as nice as the seats now on the reframed United Polaris and Delta and Air France in their newer planes."

Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Cons: "Service,"

Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."

Pros: "It was just a lovely airplane with a lovely crew. Also, good airplane food."

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."

Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."

Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Security check in needs to be more efficient Plane ran out of food before I could purchase Even water has to be purchased Flight was late"

Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "I changes flights to leave out of Sydney instead. I ended up paying 304.00 in change fee even thought i booked flight using 80,000 miles reward travel still was charged to change the flight"

Pros: "Food, comfort interior, and fast check-in processes. In fact the check-in staff are great and very friendly"
Cons: "Helpful and more smiles will be very useful. Upgrade the entertainment will be great."

Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"

Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food delicious snd the chairs comfortable."
Cons: "Didn’t receive my luggage."

Pros: "Quantas Entertainment app was great!"
Cons: "Quantas seems to have frequent gate changes. You have to pay attention. No WiFi in terminals despite posted signs."

Pros: "good seat"
Cons: "rude crew and unsanitary bathroom"

Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."

Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."

Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Leg room was just ok."

Pros: "Slightly wider seats"

Pros: "Lots of movies and TV to watch. Meals were decent. Good attendants."
Cons: "A little tight seats. The attendents were slow to clean up after meals."

Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."

Pros: "What was there to like!"
Cons: "That i couldn't board this flight. Duh!"

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient and on time - flight was exceptionally smooth and arrival in Brisbane was 45 minutes early - keep up yjr good schedule"
Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"

Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."

Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"

Pros: "Love those seat covers and overall comfort"
Cons: "My wife's headset channel, not the headset, was defective and was heavy with distortion. Overall, the plane seemed a bit worn. However, good floght overall."

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Pros: "Got a good price for RT ticket."
Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."

Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"

Cons: "Check in personal at Australia was very bad attitude and service"

Pros: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process for economy passengers."

Cons: "Food and service was appallling. ... an insult to be assed a Lindt choc (1) ... by hand."

Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"

Pros: "Temperature just right and pillows, blankets and better than average reclining seats"
Cons: "Food - too institutional. Bread over cooked, meats tough so couldn’t eat more than half of any meal."

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "very narrow seating. no snacks at back of plane no plug in for computer or cell phones. outdated plug in for headphones"

Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."

Pros: "Great services."
Cons: "When seat in front was pulled down for sleeping left little room for moving and was too squeezy and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"

Pros: "The crew was lovely and fairly attentive in business class. I had access to the First Class lounge in Sydney and it is wonderful. Even has a spa, though don't expect first class spa treatment. Uh, plane was clean and food was ok, but getting a cocktail was difficult."
Cons: "Business class seats are uncomfortable and there is nowhere to store and easily access something as simple as a book. There is a storage compartment on the seat in front of you, which you cannot reach without getting out of your seat.. While the seats do go flat, it's not something you can sleep on your side for long. Ended up reclined and sleeping on my back, which is not ideal. accessing my reservation was impossible and had to call Australia to get a seat assignment, which was reassigned by the time we checked in anyway. I care where I sit and book early to have choices. I hate to say it but I was not impressed."

Pros: "Personnel were very pleasant and helpful. Service was great. Plane was clean and organized."
Cons: "Economy seating is cramped, but I was traveling with my adult son so all was good! Night flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, not fun when there's nothing to do and no place to eat/drink in the waiting area."

Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"

Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"

Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."

Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."

Pros: "I flew over NYE and liked the complimentary sparking wine provided so we didn't miss out on the celebrations. Also food, staff and service was really good!"
Cons: "My preference is to not sit towards the back, but I couldn't check in online and there wasn't anything else available at the counter"

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "The menu offered a pre dinner drink however this was never offered. Touch pad screen did not function very well."

Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."

Pros: "service"
Cons: "the air conditioning didn't work well, constantly fluctuating between freezing and hot"
