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

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
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."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
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: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
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."
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
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: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."

Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"

Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend it. Excellent service, good food, good on board entertainment. Flight attendants and crew in general very polite and very helpful. Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Use a plane other than th"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Very polite and professional. The movie selection was the best I had ever had.......great job there!"

Cons: "Immigration waiting time is long"
Cons: "Signs on the airport screens were not updated in time so estimated departure times passes without boarding notices."
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Pros: "Can't say anything was better or outstanding."
Cons: "Attitude of Crew Manager - Ms Jacky. She thought of me STUPID who did not know how to use touch screen of personal TV. My personal TV's touch screen wasn't working so I complaint to stewardess, who asked her manager, Ms Jacky to come, she resent the system which worked and then stopped again. I again complaint but by the time Ms Jacky came the system started working again so she said "I did not know how to use touch feature. I was touching it too hard."
Pros: "Very quiet (A350), good crew who helped direct those unused to flying to the correct class. Good seat comfort and food, very good good entertainment. Toilets were cleaned periodically during the flight."

Pros: "The overhead compartments are a good size. The staff was friendly. There was decent legroom in front of the seats. The food was more flavorful than most airlines."
Cons: "In Hong Kong there was an additional security checkpoint set up at the gate. I had to throw away all liquids I purchased. Usually, once you've cleared customs and security checkpoints you can buy food and liquids within the airport and board the flight. Not sure if this was an airport thing or an airline thing. Either way it was highly inconvenient and annoying"
Pros: "The Attendants were excellent"
Cons: "I am a big man and found the seats a bit tight"
Cons: "Got stomach ache after eating the food."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Landed safely."
Cons: "Crew not very attentive to passengers. Seats are small and leg room is very cramped for a 13hour flight."

Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "Everyone is kind!"
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!"

Pros: "A free upgrade to premium economy - I think the flight was over booked."
Pros: "The crew assisted my wife on boarding the plane."
Cons: "Because of her condition we should get more legroom for her."
Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . Overall route of the flight was wrong"
Cons: "Delayed from boarding at 1 am until 5 am when they finally announced it was cancelled. They made announcement updates every 10 minutes meaning that people had to be constantly alert to see if anything changed in the next 10 minutes. When the flight was cancelled, the employees could not offer any information about how to get ticket prices refunded, or how to get to the destination. They could not even connect passengers to the managers because the managers are in Hong Kong. The number they gave out to passengers for customer services could not be reached because this it is an international number. People had to miss connecting flights, meetings, important appointments, and are still trying to figure out how to get refunded for an expensive flight. Terrible experience and customer service."
Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Pros: "I fly CP to Bangkok because they have best schedule and shortest trip from Hong Kong to Bangkok - have flown 15+ times"

Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."

Cons: "Flight delayed in take off twice. Then diverted via Manila. Not ideal."
Pros: "Love the individual screens and excellent customer service. Food wasn't bad for airplane food. Nice job and will fly it again!"
Cons: "there was no vegetarian food booked for me (as usual) even though i mentioned it while booking also sent an email 3 days before the flight to vayama agency, asking to confirm vegetarian meal, luggage allowance and connection i hong kong.. vayama replied few days after plane took off from melbourne. i also didnt have a chance to have a window seat, that was my preference and couldnt sleep during all flights at all. i wouldnt choose cathay pacific again. their crew was not helpful at all."

Cons: "Trip from ZAG to IAH Business Class. At ZAG they told me it was fine to take my skateboard onboard. At the Istanbul layover they forced me to pay $160 or else my items wouldn't make it on board. With a business class I still had to pay extra for a carry-on they said it was okay but then they changed their tune. I get it's in a different location but the same company is telling me two different things that ended up costing $160. On top of that, when I finally arrived at IAH they didn't have my skateboards... so I paid $160 for them to lose my boards."
Cons: "Always 1.5 hour late. The airport management does not care about international flight delays!!!"
Cons: "The boarding and deplane process could be better for business class. Also the seats only have two settings upright and sleep. Several airlines have intermediate setting for meal/movie. To be 5 Star they need to keep up. The lounge (although large) could use better organizing. Too many people walking all around. Very limited space, if any, for a little quiet."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Dessert, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."

Cons: "The only problem I had with that was the infant Bassinet, it was extremely uncomfortable for our baby"
Pros: "Lots of in flight entertainment options. Good meals. Very nice and helpful attendants. Gave us pillows, blankets, headphones, slippers, socks, ear plugs, an eye mask, and toothbrush and toothpaste."
Cons: "The broke my baggage. I have been flying a lot lately and never had any issues until I flew with Turkish Airlines. They are incredibly unorganized, late, gave headphones just so I could watch a map since nothing else was being played for some reason, etc. I won't be flying them again."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "Fine, short flight overall. Crew was good, airplane comfortable, and the boarding process was fine."

Pros: "The in flight experience is what I expected and was comfortable."
Cons: "Th flight was extremely late and the airline did nothing to help accommodate. They put us into Istanbul at 2am which was far too late to check into our hotel for the one night and totally refused to get us into a hotel close by so that we didn't have to be at the airport for 13 hours before our flight. We booked a flight that was SUPPOSED to arrive at 6pm so we could get to the hotel at a decent hour and relax. They cancelled 2 flights for the day and put us sleeping in the airport at empty gates all night. The customer service was absolutely aweful and we got nothing but excuses about policy and being talked down to because we "could have chosen a flight early the next day" instead of coming the day before. We wanted to see the town for an evening!! This company has some of the worst desk people I've ever encountered anywhere!"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Food and drink was OK"
Cons: "No AC while passengers on board waiting for take off. It lasted about half an hour. people were forced to use airline magazines as fans. No TV news or sport to watch Toilet was not clean. My seat can recline easily without pushing the recline bottom. This was a connection flight. Passengers had to go through 4 check points. Too much redundant. At the last check point, 4 gates shared the same check point. We saw a line but no sign for it. So we went to the front to find out what the line was for and went back to join the line for security check. There were people who did the same thing but tried to cut in the line right at the check point, creating chaos."
Pros: "I did like the workers in the plane because they look competent and committed."
Pros: "Super friendly & helpful staff! Good food and drink, very nice flight! Nice movie selection and good music!"
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "DIRECT FLIGHT TO ISTANBUL FROM MIAMI. UNFORTUNATELY I WAS IN A RUSH TO REACH TURKEY FOR A MEETING. USUALLY I PREFER TO GO THRU ROME WITH A FEW DAYS LAY OVER SO THAT I CAN HAVE BETTER SERVICE, FOOD AND PAMPERED TREATMENT AS BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE SHOULD BE. WHO CHOSE THEM TO BE THE "BEST AIRLINE IN EUROPE"?? AS THY CLAIM TO BE!! BLIND PEOPLE??"
Cons: "DAMAGED MY LUGGAGE EXTENSIVELY, THIS IS THE THIRD TIME BY THE WAY), KEEPS REFERRING ME TO AN INSURANCE CO WITH AN E MAIL ADDRESS THAT DOES NOT RESPOND, NO TELEPHONE NUMBER BY THE WAY IS FURNISHED EVEN THOUGH I HAD ASKED FOR, REPEATEDLY. -HAD TO WAIT TO PAY FOR BUSINESS UPGRADE SINCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE PERSON TRYING TO COLLECT OVERWEIGHT LUGGAGE PAYMENTS AS WELL AS UPGRADE PAYMENTS, WHILE KEEPING ME IN LINE FOR 45 MINUTES FOR A BIZ CLASS UPGRADE. AFTER I PROTESTED, A TURKISH LADY SUPERVISOR SMIRKINGLY SAID THAT I HAD TO WAIT IN LINE SINCE THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON SERVICING! GO FIGURE!. VERY TURKISH APPROACH I WOULD SAY. PASS THE BUCKET.. -NO CONCERN FOR BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE. PLEASE TELL THEM TO GO AND TRAVEL IN ALITALIA, SWISSAIR, UNITED, DELTA, VIRGIN (THE BEST) ,BUSINESS CLASS AND SEE HOW THEY PAMPER THEIR CUSTOMERS FROM CHECK IN, TO GREAT AND AMPLE GOOD FOOD AND CONTINUOUS SERVICE. -UNLIKE THY STALE, FROZEN FOOD. BAD BREAKFAST, NO AMPLE CHESE SELECTION (ONE SLICE WHITE CHESE ONLY), OVER COOKED BAD BURNED TASTING TEA. -SERVICE: THE MALE STEWARD DROPPED SALAD ON THE NEXT SEAT AND IT STAYED THERE FOR 5 HOURS. PICKED UP BY A FEMALE STEWARDESS AS WE ARE LANDING. IF THEY WISH TO USE MORE MALES ON BOARD THEY SHOULD AT LEAST TRAIN THEM WELL. I HAD TO WAIVE AT 3 DIFFERENT MALE STEWARDS AND THEY ALL PASSED BY NOT ACKNOWLEDGING AND I WAS SITTING ON THE FIRST ROW AISLE! THEY ARE RUDE, UNCARING, SHODDY SERVICE PEOPLE.."
Pros: "The food was great, had chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."
Cons: "Because we fly an older model 777-300ER, there wasn't a personal a/c nozzle, so it was a tad warm on the plane. They should fix that whenever the plane goes in for maintenance."

Cons: "The food was not good, which surprised me because on my last flight with T.A., the food was absolutely delicious, the best plane food I had ever had. The T.V. In two different seats were not working. But the crew obliged until I found one that worked."

Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"

Cons: "Delayed and caused memail to miss my connection. Had to wait another 9 hours for my next flight and all they give me is a stupid meal voucher."
Cons: "this does not necessarily reflect in the airline, other than the fact the staff could really not do anything for me in Abu dhabi: the eithad staff handed me an email and told me i had to inform them that way. no designated lost and found, the local police were utterly unhelpful"
Pros: "Boarding - very good organizing, quick, no need to stay in line. Entertainment-super! great movies, music, exellent choise!"
Cons: "Comfort - ok in overall but it could be a little bit more place for legs, short space between seat in a front. Not for somebody tall. And it is really hard to go through seats and other passengers when you want to go to the bathroom... Crew - ok, but almost not smiling and it seems sometimes like it is hard for them to bring another cup of coffee or tea..."
