The flight was 2 hour late and they also misplaced luggage of many customer. Including mine.

They did not let my uncle fly

Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive to passengers and genuinely nice."
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Pros: "Crew etc excellent"
Cons: "In flight WiFi expensive and not reliable"
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"
Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."
Cons: "TOOO long."
Pros: "The crew was very polite. Being able to track flight path. Assortment of videos. Plain was very clean. Blankets, pillow, headphones, and all beverages free of charge."
Cons: "The food was not good. Not very much leg room. Did not like the 15 lbs. carry on weight limit."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Foods, crew are accomodating and all sevice facility are very good"
Cons: "Just update the movies regularly"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable entertainment was nice food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff worked fast to feed and water everyone."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."
Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "all"
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."
Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "Everything, great airlineevrething"
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "13+ hour flight is never an "excellent" experienced but QA does its best. Great cabin service. Decent legroom. Food is good but not *quite* up to the standards of some competitors. Doha airport is great. Modern, convenient and clean."
Pros: "Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Gate security at Doha was too disorganized - could have let passengers know put everything in bag instead of at last minute having to put wallet, passport, etc in open bin and be afraid it would get stolen or misplaced."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."

Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."

Cons: "None..."

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort, amenities"
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"
Pros: "Bar in business class"
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."

Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent.

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."

Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"

Cons: "One thing that everyone was complaining about was the temperature . It was very cold and nobody anted to do anything about it. Another thing that I found unwise was the entertainment. It was a large selection of movies with very explicit sexual content. I didn't travel with kids but I was thinking what I would've done if my kids were seated next to a person like I did who was watching this kind of movies.."

Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"

The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Cons: "sardines!"

Everything was pretty mediocre for the upgraded cabin. Seats are only slightly more comfortable than basic economy, but just barely and not good for a long flight. The crew was pleasant but invisible - after dinner service they made one pass to pick up trays but then offered drinks and water twice more before making any other pass to pick up trash. Some passengers who didn’t finish their meals before they came by for tray pickup had their dirty dinner trays in front of the f them for 5 hours and no crew member even offered to take it away. Pretty disgusting having old food and trash all over the cabin for an 11 hour flight.

Cons: "Cancelation policy"
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "I made a mistake in my daughter's surname while booking online, BA refused ro change it at check-in and forced me to buy a new ticket for her."
Pros: "BA cancelled my flight, but did offer an alternate on Lufthansa on same day,"
Cons: "Being notified of the cancellation, instead of accidentally finding out about it. Very poor or lack of communication regarding cancellation due to pilots' strike."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Schedule issues, rerouted thru LA, very very painful travel, multiple security checks for an issue from the airline schedule. Airline doesn’t give reroute options. Two bags opened and missing personal items. Very frustrating travel. Kids meal choices missing on rerouted flights. I can go on..."
Cons: "Please provide enough blankets. The canin was cold!!!"
Cons: "This was not a low cost flight such as Ryan Air, etc. I expect British Airways to provide at least complimentary water, which they did not! Come on! For $240 per ticket you could at least offer a free glass of water and a pack of peanuts."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly!"
Cons: "The preferred passenger security line was a total scrum - worst part of our holiday"
Pros: "Good legroom, comfortable seat and great entertainment to keep me occupied for the 10 plus hours."
Cons: "Security at Heathrow -slow!!!"
Pros: "Boarding and the flight itself were uneventful. Departure slightly early and arrival consequently early too."
Cons: "Paying for simple tea or coffee? I know a profit needs to be made but come on! I was missed completely by the cabin service the first time, and had to ask for tea on the second. I don’t know when they started charging for tea, but it was unwelcome, cool, and not particularly refreshing. I expect better of BA."
Pros: "Original timing"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaotic affair. Landed late but no mention of apology. Disappointed."
Pros: "Not much - inflated BA fare for mediocre offering; definitely not business class when compared to proper premium airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Poor food. Disorganized boarding more soon to low cost budget carriers. Which is what BA competes against now, albeit for premium prices."
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "Despite having a delay in Denver, we were able to arrive on time. The crew was very friendly in greeting us as we boarded the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was hampered by too many people putting too much carry on luggage in the overhead bins. Many put things in the overhead bins that could have been put under the seat. It didn’t seem like the crew was paying too much attention to this. In general the crew was pleasant, but there didn’t appear to be much sincerity in the pleasantries."
Pros: "Snacks or water had to be purchased No in flight entertainment Crew not so nice"
Pros: "Premium Economy seating is very comfortable and the cabin service was excellent."
Cons: "Despite the long layover, they managed to misplace one or bags at Heathrow."
Cons: "If you want to reserve your airline seat (I'm talking a standard economy seat) you have to pay $34 per seat if it's 24 hours or more before your flight. Guess what happens at 24 hours? The airport takes over and you're stuck in the middle of a crowded 10.5 hour flight all because you weren't able to select your seat ahead of time. Just another money grab from a tanking airline."
Pros: "This was a very full flight and the crew were exceptionally patient with everyone. Much appreciated."
Pros: "Crew did really well in their roles."
Cons: "BA are no different than all operators in the drive to put as many bums in as many seats as possible. News flash. Only so many sardines go in one tin. Make seats more comfortable and more leg room and we would pay the premium for that reputation as a caring, comfortable operator."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Everything- BA’s relentless push downmarket means it’s justbtoo awful for words. Ryanair with better livery but more expensive."
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "Boarding went fast."
Cons: "Too tight, not possible to sleep a little bit."
Pros: "New plane. Good leg room. Good service overall."
Cons: "BA 884 and BA 885 (a 3 hours flight!) had no water , coffee and food at all !!! PLEASE HELP US !!!"
Pros: "Overall an outstanding experience. Staff is attentive and cheerfully accommodated people throughout the flight. No request was denied as far as I could tell."
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay on our flight from Heathrow to LAX. That being said it was during the most severe cold front to hit North America and counterparts flying with connections in some of the hardest hit town had delays of 24 hours or more."
Pros: "We had a horrible experience with BA customer service located somewhere....in the world! Couldn't even communicate in Eng...."
Cons: "Poor, very poor customer service, over the phone. On flight things were ok."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seat comfort in Business Class worse than low cost airlines Crew rude and aloft Food terrible"
Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"
Cons: "horrible seating"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late off the ground and we’d held up in the air for another 1/2 hour. Connections missed, very disappointed."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food cost was a surprise. No biggie, just glad I brought a snack"
Pros: "I really appreciated the size of the seats, the hot meal service, the attentiveness of the attendants, really the whole experience especially since I had been dreading the whole thing. I have spinal disc problems and consequently leg pain and difficulty sitting, especially in cramped spaces. I upgraded to WTP especially for that reason and was not disappointed. If I ever fly again, if BA goes there, that's going to be my choice."
Cons: "I liked everything about the flight."
Pros: "My flight was changed from Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Little leg space"
Pros: "Plane captain very informative"
Cons: "Airport ground staff very unhelpful"
Cons: "No wifi. No tvs. 1985 just called and they want their no entertainment airplane back. This is 2017.... get with the program!"
Cons: "I bought a return ticket for my daughter to fly to Amsterdam for the summer. I was allowed to purchase this flight from Kayak and BA from ATL to LON to AMS. Departure was for the end of May to the end of August. When we were checking in the attendant told us that the ticket was no good and we had to purchase another ticket because the travel was over 90 days. At no time did BA or Kayak let us know this information but had no problem selling us this ticket. We were literally extorted for another $1000.00 so she could depart. Shameful! Will not be using your site or BA ever again."
Pros: "The flight was short and we hit a day when there was free checked luggage, if it fit in the metal box."
Cons: "The French Air Force, or whatever, kept us grounded for 40 minutes because they were practicing their air show for Bastille Day. Really. They were just practicing and air travel came to a standstill."
Pros: "I would have liked to have been offered water at least without a charge."
Pros: "This short flight had no food. I guess that is acceptable"
Cons: "I was hungry but there was nothing to eat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that it was delayed 2.5 hours which meant we would have missed our connection to the USA. We then saught an alternate flight which turned out to be Air Canada."
Pros: "The connecting flight got canceled and 24 hours latter we are still in the airport trying to get to our final destination."
Cons: "We rebooked our flight to another flight firvthe following day and that one got canceled too. They have not returned our luggage yet. They said within a week we'll get our luggage. The worst company on the planet. Do not fly them. Our vacation has turned into a nightmare. We had to repurchase tickets with a different company so we can get to our final destination. We don't know if we'll get reimbursed for any portion of this."
Pros: "Great food, great entertainment, short flight that went smoothly"
Cons: "Cabin temperature a bit high"
Cons: "Even relative to other economy trans-Atlantic flights, the seats on this old plane were way too close together."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Flying in and flying out was a headache! Both times, the flights were delayed, therefore causing me to have to miss my connecting flights "BOTH times!!!!" I had to rebook and reticket my luggages throughout both travels! I will NEVER EVER book with Bristish Airways EVER again! Worst experience ever thus far! Worst part was that I had my elderly parents with me and I had to continuously make changes because of the flight delays, which put all of us in extreme stress! Made me sick to my stomach of how unprofessional BA staff were when it came to accommodating us due to their delays."
Cons: "23 kilos for the large luggage is NOT enough for an international flight. When tickets cost SO much money you should be able to have a bit more weight!!"
Cons: "Absolutely rubbish food!"
