Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."

Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "The best airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly and helpful, easy to communicate with Great movie options The 13.5 hr plane had very few passengers so I was given an entire row of 3 seats to myself Food is generally good -- Haagen-Dazs ice cream was a plus!"
Cons: "Second flight boarded an hour late, though it was never listed as delayed (a bit confusing) 4 hour plane had very little leg space"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Individual entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was mass chaos, crew wasn't very friendly. Food was passable, eggs were awful."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "Boarding priority, on-board service priority and children oriented service. Biggest leg room in any economy flight. Best entertainment program (Onyx One). Genuinely friendly crew."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"
Pros: "Flight was on time ."
Cons: "The seating was not organized when people needed to bored. It was busy and people where rushing to get in the plane ."
Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "Quick boarding, semi- spacious seats, decent snack food"
Cons: "Not much to dislike, but I still will NEVER fly Qatar again."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "I will fly Qatar again"
Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."
Cons: "Being a replacement flight due to delays in original flight from London, the airways chosen our seats beside the emergency exit my son who is 15 and other customer asked to swap seats for safty reasons which I fully support. computer and staff should be smart enough to choose for my son a proper seat."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."

Cons: "I found the bed rather hard for sleeping on my side. When I awoke, I was stiff and sore."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "nothing, all was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."

Cons: "Small legroom"
Pros: "comfortable plane: new, new media systems, leg room. usb to charge my phone."
Cons: "I ordered a special meal, and I did not get it. The response I got from the crew was: 'so you refuse to take the regular meal? we will report you didn't get what you ordered'. and I stayed hungry. In general, the crew wasn't very welcoming."
Cons: "Hate Anadolujet"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The grilled cheese sandwiches. They've been in the menu for a while but my family does not enjoy them at all. Tuna sandwich on another flight was much better. Also lack of entertainment. They allow you to access it, then they turn it off. Is such a tease. Plane left late and kept us in very hot cabin."

Pros: "I was very much impressed with the care and attention of people concerned about me boarding my plane on time once I reached the boarding gate."

Pros: "Comfortable, great food, awesome crew! I love that they have a great variety of entertainment material."
Pros: "Crew and in flight meal and refreshment services were great."
Cons: "Wifi was ineffective for most of the flight. Difficult to sign on using Android phone and unable to achieve full wifi web-browsing once activated. Charged full fee for very minimal access. One hour of access cost is almost as much as full flight access so it drives you to the higher cost option. On demand movies and music were fine. Economy seating is a tight fit but not unexpected."
Pros: "Turkish airlines have always been perfect for me. This was yet another fulfilling experience with the services, the food and other stuff being extremely satisfying."
Pros: "Length of flight was very tolerable"
Cons: "Transfer was chaotic. The crew could have informed the passengers about the transfer better. They simply haven't help at all on guidance to transfer."

Cons: "No thing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 47 minutes and the boarding was a mess because they changed the plane at the last minute and everybody's seats were mixed. Then it was understood that there's over booking on the flight then they again lost time for searching for volunteers to drop their flight and take a further flight."
Pros: "The courtesy you gave all the passengers"
Cons: "The 14-hour trip that made it hard for comfort it wasn't your fault just a distance that I had to go"

Cons: "At the airport communication was very poor and everyone was very unhelpful"
Cons: "Asked for a refund, Turkey is a hot spot for terrorism and Americans have been evacuated from this country. Airline would not refund or let me change names on my tickets. I will never deal with this airline again."
Pros: "Crews attitude, professional behavior"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in economy class"
Pros: "Dessert was good. Seat width was comfortable. Crew was courteous and helpful but could do way better."
Cons: "Boarding process is terrible. International transfers are utterly chaotic and there is a tremendous language problem that complicates every single issue."
Pros: "Limitations to 20 kg when travelling"
Cons: "TV did not work. Crew said there are a lot of broken TVs and there is nothing they can do."
Pros: "To small area for passengers after security before boarding"

Pros: "Seats are spaced further apart than many other carriers"
Cons: "There's always a problem with people trying to sit in different (e.g., my) seats, and people get up and try to exit the plane before it has even taxied off the runway."
Pros: "Wide variety of movies."
Cons: "Firstly, our daughter's personal TV monitor stopped working about an hour into the flight. We asked for the TV monitor to be fixed on three different occasions and nothing was done about it so we had to share our monitor for the remainder of the 10 hour flight. Secondly, we were the last to be served even we though we were seated in the middle of the plane. When they finally got to us they didn't have anymore of the selection that we wanted so we had to settle for what was left. When we finally got our food it was ice cold! We had to ask for another plate. By this point we were starving and very upset. Overall, our experience wasn't the most ideal."
Pros: "Direct flight, well priced, good food & service & entertainment."
Pros: "They offered refreshments and sandwiches for such a short flight"
Cons: "did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, we wanted to get on the Skopje flight instead, but were told it's left already. We knew it didn't. After some back and forth we were put on the Skopje flight and arranged our own transportation to Prishtina. We learned later that the evening flight to Prishtina, which we were supposed to be put on originally, was also cancelled. If we didn't insist, we would have had to spend at least 24 hours stuck in Istanbul airport. If you've ever flown through there, you know it's one of the worst airports ever."
Pros: "Crew and food were quite good"
Cons: "Leg room was quite tight on plane the carry on bag limit was too restrictive at 8kg"
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "This rating is for a one hour flight from Istanbul to Ankara. Even so, Turkish Air provided a meal, not just a beverage. Seats were typical coach size, so a bit crowded but not bad. Crew were pleasant."
Pros: "excellent meal friendly crew"
Cons: "late departure no entertainment"
Pros: "Great people excellent staff"
Cons: "Seating was terrible. My seat was broken."
Pros: "Drinks served on flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline and the entertainment didn’t work"
Pros: "A340-600 is a wonderful plane, but economy is too cramped. The stewards do their job of feeding the "cattle", which lacks any personal service."
Cons: "The terminal updates of terminal and gate notifications were wrong! If we had followed your email and gone to T3, we could have missed our flight and be worn out from changing terminals."
Pros: "Another exit seat and got upgraded to economy premium. Possibly one of the best flights I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."
Pros: "a320 was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane is still on the run way waiting for a gate & I’ll miss my shuttle bus to my next stop. Darn..."
Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"
Cons: "Larger seats! More legroom! No seats which don't recline. Specifically, the seat in front of min reclined -- literally into my lap, since my knees were against the back of that seat ALL the time. Min didn't recline, since it was too close to a partition."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Cons: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pros: "Staff, very good."
Cons: "Space for sitting and functioning. Flight monitor not functioning."
Pros: "Great crew and on time."

Pros: "timely take off. frequent food and snack serving"
Cons: "Prolonged stop over in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Flight was fine..."
Cons: "When two passengers got into a brawl over who knows what, it took two hours for the police to come on board and take them off the flight. They should have been removed quickly. Missed connecting flight. Messed my day up big time."
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Cons: "Leg room was less"
Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"
Cons: "Cabin Crew does not pay much attention to customer need even in business class. They need to learn lot from KLM."
Pros: "They welcome you on the plane."
Cons: "They tried to make me pay for my laptop bag, telling me it was a handbag. NEVER pay for a laptop bag!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable for a short flight. On time."
Cons: "Had to go through security and passport control a second time made the 1 hour connection stressful"
Pros: "Great crew, good humor and helpful!"
Cons: "Could have had more beverages served. But to many kids crying & screaming (not crews fault)"
Cons: "The airplane was very late, so I didn't make it to my connecting flight."
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."
Pros: "Clean plane, decent entertainment options"
Cons: "food was way below the usual Lufthansa standard had a 1.5 hour delay although it wasn't the Lufthansa fault"
Pros: "Crew was friendly both in flight and check in area."
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working at all from Washington DC to Munich! Also, I searched Lufthansa's website to order "Halal Food" but there was no option for it! I talked to one of the crew about it, she said that I needed to call to order in advance, but she was nice enough to offer vegetarian food as a substitute which was okay."
Pros: "Clarity of informations"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The people, the service, the seats, the timeliness... (I did not fly from Washington to Munich on Lufthansa; I flew back on Lufthansa.)"
Cons: "Nothing. They were great."
Pros: "Great service, food service nice"
Cons: "SMALL seats! Many people did not fit into the seats!!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "Without a doubt, the flight crew on this flight was amazing. They went out of their way to assist everyone and make sure that people had whatever they needed."
Cons: "The chairs were small, even though we upgraded to economy plus, and the outlets and my tv screen did not work. On a 10 hour flight, that's a big deal! It seems like I paid extra to get less. Terrible!"
Pros: "Attentive crew, easy boarding (for 2 elderly people)"
Cons: "The announcements from cockpit were very hard to understand, even in English........they were speaking very fast. Also the announcements made at the gate were difficult to understand."
Pros: "I like Lufthansa. We were treated very well."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Staff was rude at the terminals and a lot of frowning faces on the plane. My seat was constantly bumped by crew with no acknowledgement. The boarding was confusing and disorganized to the point the boarding agent was not sure which gate handled which group ( they use 2 for these big planes)and kept calling out the wrong information. Passengers could not believe it. Tight seats for an overseas flight."
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "On time and highly efficient as you would expect from the Germans. Airplane was clean and nice. Airport and boarding was very good too."
Cons: "Food left much to be desired but not horrible. They said they were short on crew staff (weird - first time I've heard of it) so service was a little slower than usual but not bad. Seats continue to get smaller and thinner which means less comfort for such a long haul flight. The seating arrangement is probably worst at this airline. I booked our seats and paid extra ahead of time, come to find out they changed the seat configuration and our seats sucked so we paid extra for nothing. Lufthansa really needs to fix the seat selection situation."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room"
Cons: "my flight was cancelled and it was very difficult to get to where i needed to go. the flight i evaluated was from zurich to geneva."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "service, food, frequency of food being brought"
Cons: "long in-airport walks,"
