Some visitors to Qatar require a visa. Australian passport holders can enter Doha without a visa for up to 30 days across one or multiple visits. It is also possible to extend the visa-free entry for a further 30 days by pre-arranging through Qatar Airways prior to travel.
The Qatari Riyal is the currency of Qatar. There are two ATMs located at the Bus Pavilion outside the Arrivals hall on level 0, as well as four Travelex branches in the passenger terminal, providing currency conversion and money transfer services to ensure you have the correct currency for your stay.
Doha Airport offers designated Quiet Rooms, where tired travellers can relax and enjoy a nap before their flight. These rooms are separated by gender and can be found in various locations in the terminal. For privacy and comfort, passengers can also stay overnight in a transit hotel, The Oryx Airport Hotel, which is located inside the security area, near Immigration. Day rooms are available, too, with a 5h minimum stay.
First and Business Class passengers can enjoy the hospitality of several VIP lounges at Doha Airport, after check-in and passing security. The Oryx Lounge is pay-per-use at around QR 200 (A$ 80) per passenger. Qatar Airways frequent flyers can relax in the Gold Lounge or Silver Lounge depending on your membership tier.
Doha’s bus network connects Hamad International to various destinations across Doha (routes 757, 777, 109, 747, 737, 727), offering passengers a convenient transport option. The vehicles are clean, well-maintained, and staffed by trained drivers. The bus fare can only be paid with a local Karwa Smartcard, which can be purchased at a ticket machine in the Arrivals hall. All buses depart from the Bus Pavilion, located to the right of the Arrivals halls.

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."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."

Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
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."

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: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The dinner was one of the top two I've ever had on a plane and I've flown business class around the world."

Cons: "More food, drinks & snacks. Especially on such long flights."
Pros: "Great crew and service"

Cons: "90 minutes delayed"
Pros: "I like the way Cathay has changed the process for selecting and serving dinner in business class. It adds a bit of class to the experience."
Cons: "Food options listed on menu were not available. Breakfast was served so late that crew said not enough time to make/serve hot coffee or tea. During flight no crew ever came around to offer more water or liquid between meals. TV was in German with no instructions on how to change language to English. Bathrooms were not kept clean. Also, when boarding at the HK airport, after disabled and families, everyone was asked to board at the same time which resulted in one very long line of several hundred people."
Pros: "I was fortunate to be upgraded as a frequent flyer on this airline"
Cons: "Poor cabin crew service in this instance."
Pros: "On time. Good service"
Pros: "Food was good, comfy seats. Nice crew."

Pros: "Customer service is excellent as usual. The plane is very well outfitted and modern. You can generally trust the Cathay standard. The pilots are good, and even though departure may have been delayed, we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I didn't prefer the premium economy section. Uncomfortable. I'd rather pay the fare for a cheaper economy seat, that is equally uncomfortable. It's terrible to start charging people for small, petty things like choosing one's seat."
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable even though there was plenty of leg room"
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Pros: "The overall boarding arrangement is smooth. Crews are friendly."

Pros: "Efficient service."
Cons: "The sound jack on my seat was dysfunctional and the sound kept cutting out unless I had my hand on the jack for 12 hours. It was CX806 flight."
Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."
Pros: "Always consistently good.."
Pros: "1st - boarding at hongkong was a pain. You line up at security just to transfer/transit. Then another line up to get inside the boarding area where they again check your ticket and boarding pass. Then theres another line at the gate where they scan your boarding pass. Just when you think you're done, there's another line right before you enter the plane where they check all the hand carry of the passengers. Overkill! 2nd - the crew - not very friendly at all. I noticed they spent more time chitchatting with the caucasian in front of me than with the rest of the asians around me. No smiles for the passengers - not even when they lined up to say hi and goodbye. They were just going through the motions. When they answered the call lights of the ladies in front and beside me, they were curt and abrupt. It was a good thing i didnt need them for anything. Then i happened to go to the restroom and i saw them chatting among themselves in the back while the bathroom was a mess. 3rd - seats were ok, but were narrower 4th - food was hot but the dinner wasnt appetizing at all - some kind of meatball/mashed potato slush. I could only eat less than a quarter of the entree. The breakfast was ok- egg was ok, the bacon was soggy and the sausage was not salty which was a plus. 5th - a lot of movie choices! Helped pass the time quickly"
Pros: "Timely and professional."
Cons: "I would like a different food selection...."
Cons: "Traveled from London to Hong Kong. Crew was disinterested and disorganised. No snacks available in galley."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."
Cons: "Arriving Hong Kong and getting a taxi... first impressions count and Taxis are rude and a rip off. Not what you expect from a renowned international airport"
Pros: "Offering excellent services to handicapped passengers proactively"
Cons: "After landing in Hong Kong the local airport services to the disabled need better organisation/communication. They claimed that the SFO Cathay Pacific check-in staff had not included me in the list of wheel-chair requesters while I knew that the opposite was true"
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"
Cons: "We were late leaving HK but that is all. Minor in overall scheme of the journey."
Pros: "Smooth, on time, comfortable, good entertainment and decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Lounge in Chicago terrible...lounge near gate in HK was disgusting. The nice lounge closed too early. The food was passable The flight crew was mixed...a few nice ones, but most were unfriendly Ala American or BA Bathrooms on plane not in great condition"
Pros: "Service and timing"
Pros: "Great seat size loads of leg space and lovely flight attendants"
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Pros: "Stewardesses were nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Plane seemed a bit older for an international flight. Not much legroom, poor entertainment options no games and there were no adjustable air vents."
Pros: "Crew was cordial."
Cons: "Again, would it be possible to have more Christian-friendly movies?"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food sitting position checking in"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable plane."
Cons: "The crew seems rushed and was not able to serve drinks when requested."
Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."
Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."
Pros: "I got food poisoning"
Pros: "Cabin crew always smiling and helping out"
Pros: "Everything was great from the crew to the seats to the food. Right now this tops all my previous trips with other airlines."
Cons: "Devices need to be checked as the handheld device on my seat (24H) was not functional. That's not really a complaint but merely a feedback."
Pros: "crew was good. Seat was good but it was a business class seat in a 787-9; so it should be good."
Cons: "wines were mediocre which was balanced out by the good quality of the food. Brussels to Abu Dabhi boarding was a little chaotic with coach and front cabin passesgers packed in a single bus. Noticed many older passengers standing for the longish bus ride."
Cons: "You expect more from business class"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Their time."
Pros: "Flight price and time"
Cons: "There was no choice for dinner. It was only a fait accompli that eating from one category remained. When I refused, they did not respond to my request to replace the food. I refused to eat it. The host did not agree to replace the food,"
Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "Spacious flight. Helpful crew. Efficient boarding"
Cons: "More food options"
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."
Pros: "I flew economy Melbourne > Abu Dhabi and then Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The first leg of the flight was great, the flight wasn’t full and I had a whole row to myself. The flight attendant even gave me some tips to ensure nobody sat there. This flight was on an A380 so the plane was large and it felt spacious."
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Cons: "Too little space for carry on compartments. Seats are too tight and tiny, very uncomfortable, staff not interacting or smiling, food was disgusting and tasteless, the aircraft seemed old and was so incredibly noisy the whole trip, and the ventilation was too bad the smell was just old and rusty."
Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"
Cons: "My co passengers."
Cons: "Cleanliness could be improved. Washrooms were not serviced frequently"
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time , provided water and sandwich on a 1 hr flight free"
Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent"
Pros: "Handled disruptive customers well"
Cons: "Boarding and departure were late, food was terrible"
Pros: "Food was great. Crew was very nice and it was a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
Pros: "Didn’t have much choice for vegetarians.. food was not good atol"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The behavior of crowd and no leg space"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too high ie it was too hot and not enough drinks given out"
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"
Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"
Cons: "Food and service was better before in 2016"
Pros: "Liked the cabin"
Cons: "The crew was standoffish and disengaged. This is on a buisiness class ticket where I paid $8000 for two tickets."
Pros: "Etihad gives you lots of food and makes sure you never go hungry. The Air hostesses were fairly helpful even thought it was the early hours of the morning and the entertainment was fairly diverse but could be better. Having USB ports to charge your phone and their devices is fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were small and very little leg room. It was not very comfortable and very hard to get some sleep considering it was an 11 hour flight overnight."
Cons: "Seat was too tight. No foot rest"
Pros: "Accurate. Take off was smooth. Crew were sooo kind. Boarding was fast. New computer was fantastic. New movies ."
Cons: "1. Seats were really narrow. 2. Although my first plane from Seoul to Abu Dhabi was for 10 hours but only one meal served and it was omlette with sausage And at the beginning a small toast sandwich served. This indeed very strange because everytime I flied with Etihad you serve 2 meals one of them is meat or chicken with rice. I was really starving until the next glight because when we left Incheon airport it was 12.55am and most restaurants were closed. Please try to solve this issue"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly!! People are very friendly and staff were amazing!"
Cons: "Can't fault it!!"
Pros: "Stunning level of service. It feels like what U.S. Airlines were like when you traveled in the 1950's-60's. They pamper you and really seem to care about your flight experience. Food was excellent. I will try my best to only fly this airline from now on for overseas flights."
Cons: "Not much to say about what I didn't like. My only negative experience was waiting almost an hour for baggage upon return in Toronto. I almost missed my shuttle back to home . Entire luggage experience was very disorganized and pathetic, I blame that on AerLingus, which is owned by Etihad."
Cons: "This plane was quite noisy. Noise cancelling earphones helped but it was noticeably different to the next flight with air Berlin. That cabin was significantly quieter."
Pros: "Warm crew"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Cons: "Ticket was not emitted I discovered it two days before departure."
Cons: "They didn't allow carry on bag even it's 2 CM higher. Good was very poor, check in was nasty and too much long waiting lines even after web check in. Customer responsive ness was worst part"

Cons: "Economy class seats hard to stretch"
Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating.When I checked in the airline attendant switched me to a window seat which was very considerate. Flight attendants came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated."
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"
Pros: "Bussiness class was excellent."
Pros: "On time / shedule ahead departure or arrival."
Cons: "Seating arrangement."
Cons: "Every thing great"
Pros: "Liked the food Good service"
Pros: "I thought that the crew working the flight from Abu Dhabi to Doha, was especially efficient, There is so little time to do all the things that they have to do, They however seem to do it well, and at the same time make it look easy."
Cons: "I do not like having to take a bus to and fro the terminal in Abu Dhabi. Especially when the connections are short."
Cons: "Lot of room to improve in all areas."
Pros: "Polite staff."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight with not much space to avoid touching your neighbor. It really made the 13 hour flight uncomfortable to sleep. On a shorter flight it wouldn't have been as big of an issue but this overnight trip it was rough."
Pros: "cabin crew members were much more attentive."
Cons: "food was monotonous."
Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"
Cons: "Very cramped business set with no place for storage. Comfort is good though"

Pros: "nice crew, great food, high quality blankets, good movies"
Cons: "the time spent waiting in the jetbridge was long. my window seat didn’t have a window."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical problem and did not fly out. We are hoping to fly out one day later."

Cons: "The guy in front of me pushed his seat back and the space was reduced dramatically, even for lunch. Screen was not so good, but pprobably enough"
Pros: "Short and comfy."
Cons: "Really? The only refreshments had to be purchased?"
Cons: "The staff would not accept cash for the food and drinks, I didn’t have any so had to stay thirsty"
Cons: "Decent seat comfort. 2hr fly. Great Alp scenery."
Pros: "Our flight was changed to Iberia from Madrid to NY"
Pros: "Love BA airlines. Just be on time get on the plane and they will get you to where you want to go."
Pros: "Flight was on time, check-in easy, personnel friendly. Good experience."
Cons: "I was treated with so much disrespect, I wonder why tho. One of the crew members (a plus sized lady) came off to me as racist, she treated everyone else with a smile and cautious attitude but was so fast to tell me off. Would it be a coincident that the rest people are white like herself? I'm never flying BA again."
Cons: "Flight has now been cancelled twice. Communication by BA has been lacking. Flight now scheduled to leave 48 hours later than scheduled.See above"
Pros: "Uneventful, other than having missed the original connecting flight on account of delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment, so I can't rate them."
Pros: "The airline accommodated an earlier flight since I got to the airport early. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seems to be mostly different in that there's nobody seating in the middle, and maybe a better "meal". Fortunately, it's a very short flight. It was delayed 45 minutes though, after we boarded, supposedly for congestion at the destination. Ended up doubling the time spent in the plane..."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "Those headrests need an upgrade in economy!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"
Cons: "Overal, flight was great."
Pros: "Reminds me of great flights from days when service was king. Only better."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Mediocre aircraft, dismissive crew. Nothing surprising from BA to be quite honest I shall continue to lower my expectations."
Cons: "Boarding was late no communication as to why Limited to no choice for entertainment"
Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by Qatar Airways on its A380. Qatar Airways are a true 5* airline and every detail is gone through with precision. A fantastic crew, great entertainment system, comfortable seats, nice food... If I could fly Qatar Airways everywhere, I would"
Cons: "No adapters availNle for the nonstandard power outlets."
Pros: "The women at BA in Chicago O'Hare airport were awesome Christine, Carole, Diane & ankther one but I forgot the last lady's name. Very polite attentive and professional. We had a difficult situation & they helped us get through our problem with the less stress as possible!"

Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Pros: "Luggage delayed."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food selection is terrible. Plainer, simpler foods that appeal to more people would be preferred. If you want to attempt to serve 5 course meals, that is fine, But, please have normal backup foods. In fact you would save a lot of money buy not putting seeds and grapes in the salads, buying plain white/wheat rolls with no seeds, and much simpler appetizers/desserts. I saw a lot of food being thrown away. Mine included. If you are trying to force people to buy food before they board, you have succeeded. TV displays and remote were very poor compared to your competitors."
Pros: "The entertainment was about all that was good"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Seats were uncomfortable and very dirty Cabin crew was short staffed Food was the worst I've ever had on BA and they ran out of chicken before getting half the plane fed. Cabin crew that was there was rude to passengers to the point some just ignored the cabin crew. Only served drinks 3 times on a 9 hour flight I've flown BA multiple times and this was by far the worst flight I've ever had with BA. Very disappointed they have gone downhill so much"
Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."
Pros: "Quick and easy!"
Pros: "Not much. Very small plane. Only one bathroom on the back in the galley! Impossible to get in most of the flight because of service carts."
Cons: "Food service extremely slow. M&s choices looked good but the crew had their hands full trying to deliver. Too bad"
Pros: "They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days."
Cons: "Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place."
Cons: "Nasty food! Frozen solid salad."
Cons: "Paying for a soda!"
Pros: "The flight,from take off to landing & crew was very good."
Cons: "The food served from Washington to London was very good. However,food served from London-Lagos though good but i was surprised that when the cabin crew who served our compartment told me that my choice of lunch was no more available in the plane to served me. Simply, they ran out of chicken and rice when it got to my turn. I had to demand to speak with the manager who came to speak with me & had to go to business class wing to get me a meal to eat. The manager was very understanding & nice.She took good care of me & fulfilled my desire.She made me happy. In conclusion,every flight should always have more than enough food to go round every parssenger in every flight in the future."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "I though the food was OK. I liked the mini sized soda cans they gave."
Pros: "Staff all very pleasant."
Cons: "Forced to check carry-on bag at the gate at which point they apparently gave me a baggage claim ticket with someone else's name on it. Because of all the uncertainty when they decided to do this, it was not caught until the bags did not show up at my final destination. They were however very pleasant while incorrectly marking our bags."
Pros: "Got there in one piece."
Pros: "Overal BA is good"
Cons: "No flight entertainment and also food was really poor."
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."
Pros: "The crew was amazing the flight went well."
Cons: "I payed extra to be in premium economy and ingot put next to free upgrade and the flight was empty behind me so I had no room and I payed more just an unfair and ridiculous waste of money if I have people all around me and none behind me I shouldn’t have to pay for something if there giving it to the people so I get less riom"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Most people were so relaxed and pretty easy going about the whole thing"
Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats that worked"
Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."
Cons: "Had a 4 hr layover due to a bad tire. Waited 3.5 hr for them to get a tire....seriously!!!!! That’s not the only flight I’ve been delayed on with AS due to maintenance problems. Each time it seems like it could have been handled in a more efficient way and time! Very Disappointed!!!"
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Pros: "Jams you up with connections in Charlotte."
Cons: "Always running to make connections."
Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."
Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight got delayed from salt lake and we had to spend a day in Charlotte before another flight came"
Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."
Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."
Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"
Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Cons: "Ride flight attendants"
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."
Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."
Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"
Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."
Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"
