Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very good. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The seat was reasonably comfortable. Boarding process was very orderly and smooth."
Pros: "seats were awesome, so as the food and the occasional snacks were delightful"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working, but since I got a window seat I didn't complain. Long time for a 12 h flight without video or something to occupy myself, but at least the USB port was working..."
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Pros: "aircraft A350 , food choices , Doha airport , Staff attitude and willingness to help ."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Cons: "Small chairs"
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: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"
Pros: "Service, seats, beds, food, entertainment, EVERYTHING !!!"
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: "Terry was wonderful"
Pros: "The service on board is excellent"

Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."
Pros: "Incredibly attentive service"
Cons: "Internet service didn’t work. Also waiting for can refund because of unannounced 12 hour delay on the outbound 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."

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: "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"
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."

Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."
Pros: "The head flight attendant in the economy cabin was nice, after a bit."
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working and all they could offer me was something farther back in the cabin. As a Gold privilege member, I choose to sit at the front of the cabin, and yet the entertainment system was unavailable. I wish Qatar Airways could compensate me for my unfavorable experience."
Pros: "Planes very modern and spacious. 777-300 ER great in economy . Im 184cms tall and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was repetitive / we flew two legs / Sydney to Doha and Doha to Madrid - same breakfast - chicken sausage. Movie selection - whilst large / hit and miss"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Cons: "Luggage took 30 minutes to get to pickup and it was covered in vinegar. The snacks on the ride really stink. A little bag of pretzels. Boarding and I boarding took forever"

Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Cons: "The Kayak interface messed up my flight schedule and I ended up getting a non refundable and unchangeable ticket. I lost all my money on that ticket. No more Kayak for me. Ever."
Pros: "The fact that we got there safely."
Cons: "Took them 90 minutes to fix a seat belt because they kept bringing the wrong part. They got it right the third try. The cabin crew sat in the back and chatted for an hour while we sat at gate. Not even a glass of water offered. Then we were diverted to Pittsburg because of weather and sat for an hour. Again no water offered. So on 5 plus hour flight crew went around once. The final straw was they blamed weather for the delay when in fact it was not being able to find the correct seat belt in due time."
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
Pros: "Crew was proficient."
Cons: "Seating was compact, reminded me of the buses that run from Mexico to the US. "Let's see how many we can fit in there?" Rubbing elbows the entire time."
Cons: "Flight never happened. American Airlines saved the day. It seems to me, the issues with United are deeper than we ever thought. I was highly disappointed with their inability to rectify the situation."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Cons: "Lost bags and unable to have bags delivered as instructed. Unprofessional driver and still no resolution for receiving lost item."
Pros: "Staff was very kind and genuine"
Cons: "the plane was absolutely freezing cold!"
Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"

Pros: "Still stuck here"
Cons: "I hated not having access to movies on my personal device."
Pros: "very smooth and fast"
Cons: "some of the united employees were rude"
Pros: "That I survived."
Cons: "30 min delay because of a.c. and still was not fixed"
Pros: "Boarding on time, wi-Fi entertainment and staff were friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to suggest"
Pros: "I did like that we boarded quickly and efficiently. The attendants were very respectful and kept very quiet throughout their food and beverage service so others could sleep which was quite professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that the only guy on the flight that kept his light on the entire trip had to sit next to me. I was able to sleep regardless, and I understand that it is out of the control of the crew or myself or anyone but that guy... but that was less than desirable. Other than that, great flight."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned"
Cons: "No hot food"
Pros: "Professional airline. Comfortable seating. On time. Most impressive airline I've flown with in a very long time."
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Cons: "The Flight was late taking off with no explanation. We were on the plane for an hour prior to takeoff with no AC. The cabin was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Pros: "We were slightly delayed departing because of a mechanical concern. Thankfully there was nothing wrong so we departed within a few minutes. To compensate the pilot authorized free direct TV for the flight. Very nice I enjoyed a movie. We landed on time."
Cons: "Direct TV cut out for a couple minutes."
