Airline reviews

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Time check in maybe earlier."

Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."

Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Lots of Leg room"

Pros: "Great food. Excellent cleanliness"

Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "I think everything was amazing"

Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."

Pros: "I did upgrade to economy premium which is why the flight was very comfortable. Would not have upgraded except I made a mistake in the currency conversion and thought the upgrade was cheaper than it was."
Cons: "Did not really like the chef's cuisine as opposed to the one on my outward flight to Japan which was excellent."

Cons: "Flight attendants"

Pros: "Two choices of meal, friendlier staff, better head cushion. Props to JAL."

Pros: "Comfortable and great crew"

Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."

Cons: "No space for cabin bags. Late by 2 hours. Super rude and passive aggressive staff. Kept in bus at Frankfurt for 10 mins. Won’t fly BA again if i can help it."

Pros: "Good service. Flight went off without a problem."

Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "While many other airlines are cutting down on their service quality and amount of food on their flights, Japan Airlines has done the reverse: offer excellent food and great service at every tier, including economy. We took a flight from NY to Tokyo and felt like it was one of the best long haul flights we have taken."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"

Cons: "food from manila to japan was excellent,food japan to vancouver was not...could only eat half of it"

Pros: "Flight time was not bad, not too long"
Cons: "Food options were bad, I offered to pay money for something better, didn't even have an option to pay for better meals, I don't think better meals existed for coach."

Pros: "Customer service was on point . Thanks Again !"

Pros: "Everything was great except for how warm it was. It may be seasonal?"
Cons: "There weren’t any personal vents on the 777 going to or coming back from Japan. Otherwise it was a perfectly fine flight. I just don’t do well when it’s too warm as it make me feel sick."

Pros: "From bathroom amenities to food/drinks on board. Japan airlines knows the meaning of service and I had a very pleasant flight."

Pros: "First about the price of the ticket, and the survis in the plane"
Cons: "Actually nothing is my dislike things."

Pros: "Service was exquisite."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "There wasn’t anything that I disliked. Of course the seats were uncomfortable, but that’s expected for Economy."

Pros: "Crews are very polite and willing. They During the entire 13 hours flight, they continued serving drinks and snacks. I have not seen such services on the other airlines."
Cons: "The movies were not the first run ones."

Pros: "Not many passengers so that I had empty seats and could lay down."
Cons: "Tv stopped working suddenly."

Pros: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and long waits for restroom"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Food, lavatory experience"
Cons: "Small carry and carry on bag"

Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Staff was great and plane was clean"

Pros: "787 was phenomenal- amazing airplane. You didn't even feel like you were moving."
Cons: "Food was extremely disappointing"

Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."

Pros: "Efficient boarding process. Great god and cabin service. On time."
Cons: "Turbulent flight and the crew was not completely reassuring"

Pros: "Japan Airline employees are courteous and gracious. The plane and seats were comfortable, and they offered complimentary food and movies. I would definitely fly this airlines again."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this airlines."

Pros: "Love Jan service!!!"

Cons: "Could not enjoy the music and NHK news on the plane."

Pros: "Excellent customer service!"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful."

Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"

Pros: "Direct flight (SAN-NRT) is always nice. (I don't know why JAL always charges more than other carriers.) Check-in desk personal was very kind & caring. Flight attendants are courteous and attentive. Good selection of current release & older movies. Bathrooms were always tidy & clean."
Cons: "When I took this flight last year, food was terrible. So I requested "fruits plate" this time. It was literally fruits only plate. Same types of fruits in different containers. No rolls/bread/ice cream/nothing!!! If I had known this, I wouldn't have ordered it. Boarding procedure needs a vast improvement for economy class passengers."

Cons: "slow service, inconsistent, they skipped my row for service???"

Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."

Pros: "Everything on the 787 except the seats in Biz Class"
Cons: "Biz class seats on this 787 recline to almost flat, but not flat & the remaining tilt is enough to make you slip toward your feet, so it's less comfortable than 777 biz class seats"

"I loved both the ground and flight crews. They're so patient and willing to accomodate us and help solve problems. I only wanted to suggest if they can give us more new or not so new movies to watch."

Cons: "This is just a poor airline in which I will never fly on again. I will blame it a lot on miscommunication but seats are horrible and need way for cushion especially if you are on a 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Comfort as usual"
Cons: "No idea"

Pros: "Crews are friendly"
Cons: "Need more food"

Pros: "I had 3 seats to myself, and I was able to curl up and get a good 2 hours sleep without being disturbed. Thank you ANA. Crew was lovely and friendly."
Cons: "Well they could have given me a free upgrade but I can live with a row to myself, kidding. When the ticket counter opens the agents stand in front of the podiums and bow and say a greeting (I think it was in Japanese). They need to get their timing better. So not much."

Pros: "The crew was very good."

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"

Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."

Cons: "1. Missed our flight connection in Chicago because of delayed take-off from Tokyo. We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later. 2. ANA flight attendants were not very well versed in the English language. Very hard to communicate our needs."

Pros: "Enough legroom/more than what you’d find on your standard 4-5 hour flights. The stewardesses were great! They attended to every need with a smile. They did a great job of making sure everyone was comfortable."
Cons: "They need some vegetarian options for meals."

Pros: "Staff was great and both the terminals and onboard"

Pros: "Even though the flight was around 45 min, still got a nice cup of consomme soup while I was working on the in-flight WiFi. Overall good for a short flight but basic interior with poor visibility of safety video on 787-9."
Cons: "Boarding is a bit chaotic. Only people at the front of the queue can see the correct places to stand, so many people were trying to push in the front of the queue because the signs weren't visible from some angles or from far away. Basically couldn't see the inflight safety videos from my seat (17K) because of the curvature of the overhead bins and positions of the few screens (no seat-back monitors)."

Pros: "The 787 was awesome. Very comfortable. Great staff and service."

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "I didn’t get seat together w husband on both flights. No snacks even peanuts provided."

Cons: "The business lounge in honolulu"

Pros: "Excellent service."

Pros: "Quality of the planes"
Cons: "Nothing as far as human services. Thai used to be and I have flown Thai since i was a teenager, many many times. I used to every time get excited to fly with Thai. this time i had two Thai connections between Tokyo - Bankgkok and Bangkok-Delhi, both times my two young minor children were automatically seated away from me and each other also during checkin process. it took a lot of time and convincing the agent to get my own children seated with me on long international flights! Food service was worse than expect for name of Thai airways!"

Pros: "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"

Pros: "Overall experience was excellent. Seating as spacious in economy as I have had in some airlines' premium economy. Food was fresh and quite tasty although nothing to rave about. The staff are always a delight on ANA."
Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."

Pros: "I'm always in awe at how the crew operates, everything is tidy and the services are efficient and utmost hospitality. Look forward to flying with ANA again."

Pros: "Crew onboard and in Brussels where very nice and efficient."
Cons: "Plane was nice and clean but they should upgrade the standard of the food and there movie selection."

Pros: "more new movies will be better"

Cons: "The VOML food"

Pros: "Same thing"
Cons: "I did not like in air port new Delhi my suite case was a damaged Told to air port employee he said may stuck in belt."

Pros: "Crew attentiveness; relative comfort (could be better - but I've had worse); variety of movies"
Cons: "I'd like greater variety in food choices"

Pros: "Clean, friendly and the 787 Dreamliner was great, be sleep with 2 different families little ones keeping me awake."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Interior show signs of aging"

Pros: "The leg space of the plane"
Cons: "Some crew hard to understand they English"

Pros: "Food was served with metal utensils."

Pros: "The service, the professionalism, and the wonderful Dreamliner Boeing 787 aircraft"

Cons: "Our seats are much less comfortable with very little leg room. My daughter couldn't recline her seat."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Food was good. I had snow crab and seafood with rice. Many new movies and music choices. Crews were lovely and care."

Pros: "The stewardess are the most polite and helpful I've travelled with"

Pros: "Great customer service and very kind staff!"

Cons: "Disappointed that they would not do anything to allow my son and I to sit together. I ended up in a window seat and my son was in a middle seat 5 rows apart. You would think they could find some combination of a middle & window by moving a couple of single travelers but NO. Kept saying that it was a full flight so no go. It's not like we demanded an aisle seat. Just left a "bad taste in my mouth". Not the ANA service that I am used too."

Pros: "5 stars all around 5 stars around"

Pros: "Aircraft was new and spacious"
Cons: "Crew forgot to ask us for drinks upon serving us meals. I also had to repeat my order 3 times."

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were kind and tried to be very helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was difficult to figure out and maneuver around and it seemed like the choices of movies were all sad."

Pros: "Excellent service, friendly staff, smooth check-in and boarding. I love the simplified, smaller Boarding Pass that can actually fit into your passport and doesn't stick out as a sore thumb."
Cons: "Nothing, really."

Pros: "Almost everthiny good job keep it up, excellent !"

Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight attendants were courteous and thoughtful."
Cons: "I slept through a meal."

Pros: "staff was great in business"

Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."

Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."
Cons: "American style Food could have been better. Didn't try the Japanese food."

Pros: "I liked my aisle seat. The plane was clean. Crew professional. Temperature comfortable. Pillow, blankets, and headphones given."
Cons: "No instructions on how to use the remote for the television."

Cons: "VGML food was not good. Needs significant changes"

Pros: "Good industrious crew who were pleasant and obliging. Lots of storage space in a larger aircraft. Washroom automation using sensors was fantastic. Washrooms we're always kept clean and adequately supplied."
Cons: "The seats were very tight."

Pros: "The staff was so kind and quick to make everyone feel so comfortable. And the plane itself was already super roomy, so time flew as I spared the skies like I was back home in my living room."

Pros: "ANA has always done a fantastic job, mfrom customer service to the food to checking you in."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Rather long wait at business check-in, friendliness there ok, on board service slow with the champagne, old aircraft with old configuration of seats, nothing really bad, but it's not like this that you win an airline of the year award!"

Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."

Pros: "Superior standard"

Pros: "Crew very attentive but not intrusive. Food very good."
Cons: "I did not find much to watch on entertainment system. Have to get crew to assemble flat bed, a bit of a nuisance. Also to turn it back into a chair."

Cons: "Having boarded at SYD, during the Canberra stop, we were all required to disembarked. It was a loaded flight so the process was slow"

Pros: "Best airline I've ever been on"

Pros: "Crew will try there best to help you in anyway"
Cons: "Missed my connection so lost bags . Took 2 days for them to get to me."

Pros: "All crew members are very friendly and helpful, good service."
Cons: "All over flight i feel good time, i don't feel boring all friendly staff, good service choice of food i like."

Pros: "crew were very friendly and helpful. flight was one of the best i’ve had"
Cons: "boarding at sydney was very confusing"

Pros: "Crew were very good. Cabin was also much better than Qantas premium economy cabin."
Cons: "Had premium economy seat. Not the most comfortable on the tailbone for some reason."

Pros: "Yes the SQ802 and sQ807 was excellent"
Cons: "Returning flight food short be better SQ807"

Pros: "Okay in general, nothing impressive"
Cons: "Food certainly need improvement, lacking in attention to ensure food quality. Crews need proper training in customer service."

Pros: "The crew was great as usual. The food was good"
Cons: "Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away."

Cons: "Very cramped. Worst leg of the journey"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The staff is amazing and know what parents of bubs need."

Pros: "Very comfortable. best airline I flew on overall and was first time ."
Cons: "Charges for extra bag was steep- $150. Location at LAX airport is far. While nice to have many options for meal but did not low-carb so I only ate half my food"

Pros: "Flight time"

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."

Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."

Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"

Pros: "Nice and attentive crew"
Cons: "Seat in the economy class is cramped and although the movie selection is quite ok, but the lack of touchscreen is quite annoying"

Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"

Cons: "leg space"

Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"

Cons: "Food not hood"

Pros: "Friendliness and efficiency of crew. Comfortable seats and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not much. This airline is up there with the best."

Pros: "crews were helpful"
Cons: "nobody suggested me about $20 discount coupon card . I could have enjoyed my meal free while waiting in teansit."

Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"

Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was delicious!"

Pros: "Liked almost everything: newspapers, menu card, mini-toiletries bag, hot towel, food choice, ice cream, entertainment options, head sets provided (better quality than US airlines), lavatories kept clean and with less waiting time, number and friendliness of flight staff."
Cons: "What I did not like: Boarding was slower than expected. Large plane = longer boarding time."

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Food was. Not available. They said they don't have extra veg food . I selected beg food still it shows them non veg and I was pass my way with empty stomach"

Pros: "We started taxing 15 minutes before the departure time. This is great !"
Cons: "not much"

Cons: "Old plane. Old in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"

Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"

Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"

Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"

Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"

Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."

Pros: "Services are the best"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Cons: "Food is served in heated plastic containers. I would request Qatar airways not heat the food in the plastic container."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Qatar is the BEST First Class airline in the world."
Cons: "Everything was amazing!"

Cons: "Check-in for ticket took 2 hours!"

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. The staff delayed boarding of zone 2 passengers until ALL zone 1 passengers could be located and boarded which could easily have delayed takeoff. They went so far as to page missing zone 1 pax several times and asked people sitting on gate area which zone they"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "I like that they deliver me safe and sound to Vietnam"
Cons: "I would prefer no interruptions while I am watching my movie"

Pros: "Good Service.Efficient"
Cons: "No Phone charging facilities on back of the seat unlike other Qatar aircraft."

Pros: "Food was good and so was the crew, entertainment was better than expected."
Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."

Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."

Pros: "Great crew and front desk"

Pros: "Own entertainment device"
Cons: "No snacks"

Pros: "The plane was relatively new, the original departure time was also slightly delayed, but overall it wasn’t that bad."
Cons: "The hot food has some room for improvement, although it tasted good, there was hardly any vegetables in the chicken dish."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."

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."

Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."

Pros: "No proper meal provided"
Cons: "PROPER comfort zone not provided at all"

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"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

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: "Excellent flight , seats, food"

Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Overall"

Pros: "Very nice. Everything was great."

Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"

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 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: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Everythingv"

Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."

Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Pros: "On board crew are excellent."
Cons: "Ground staff requires training specifically on communication related to boarding. Travelers were confused as to what zone is boarding at a given time as there were no announcements. Pathetic boarding process."

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: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"

Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."

Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"

Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."

Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was hard to interact with."

Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"

Pros: "quick flight. tasty snack"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"
Cons: "Food is below average!"

Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."

Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"

Pros: "The service and flight as total."
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything - no crew or pilots so delayed. Then engineers on the plane so delayed. No in flight entertainment as broken - plane appeared to be from the 90s as no way to charge devices. Over 2 hours late and the plane was so old we felt like we were going to break up on landing. Terrible experience"

Pros: "Food was delicious and service excellent"
Cons: "Slow customs in Honolulu"

Pros: "Consistently good"
Cons: "2,hr delay - weather"

Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."

Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"

Cons: "Delays due to storms slowed our departure and made the boarding process a little confusing"

Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."

Cons: "Qantas left our luggage in Sydney. Once we were in Koh Samui it was up to Bangkok Airways to sort it out. The file reference we were given wasn't recognised by the Qantas website, the three phone numbers in Bangkok just gave a 'number disconnected' message and one was no answer. We had to cancel a planned event on day two and shop for clothes for a specific activity on day three. The only way to make contact with Qantas was via Instagram, Luggage did appear but so far no contact or apology from Qantas. We will not fly with Qantas again. Virgin Australia is our carrier of choice who outperform Qantas in every respect. This flight was gifted so we had no choice."

Pros: "Great crew, nice clean aircraft with lots to watch via their streaming service Flight left ontime and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was good but not great"

Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."

Cons: "Flight was late departing."

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."

Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."

Pros: "Food was a improvement luggage transfer to connecting flight great a"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Mostly everything great."
Cons: "Leg room for me a bit small. Dinner a bit mushy."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "On time. Nice cup of tea and a bite to eat. Good entertainment if you have your own device (I did)."
Cons: "Entertainment system.took a while to connect to and dropped out a few times."

Pros: "As before great assist with wheel-chair support"

Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the headrest was smaller than an ipad screen"

Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas domestic is always chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers"

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"

Pros: "Seat so small , lack of back support and cushioning"
Cons: "Seat is so uncomfortable. For the 6 hr trip need a back adjustment for such a cramped environment. Need review my future travel on Qantas"

Pros: "I loved the first meal and the choices all seemed amazing. Staff were friendly during boarding. Seats were really comfortable and good movie and song choices."
Cons: "The second meal, a small noodle box was dry, overcooked, and bland even with the dressing. The crew was not very friendly during the flight (I understand maybe they had a cranky passenger before and it was a long flight but smiling isnt that hard!). Inflight service was inconsistent as one side came down to serve 15minutes after the first side. The headphones looked quite dirty so I used my own. Boarding was quite slow and then takeoff was late but it was nice that the captain explained it."

Pros: "Excellent service. Comfortable seats in economy with good leg room"
Cons: "Poor screen & audio quality on movie system."

Pros: "In flight entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Delayed and missed connecting flight. As a result had to pay for a new one. Placed in the last row of economy so I could sit with my partner. Lied to by the check in counter. Disappointed by qantas yet again!"

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "The food and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Nothing to be honest.."
Cons: "food was pathetic, served late, i have always found the Qantas crew to be rude. No change to that. Somethings dont change. this is one of them. I first flew w Qantas in 2005 in business class, and since then i have downgraded. But the attitude hasn't changed. It's as if we are doing service by choosing Qantas...."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no Sauvignon blanc on the wine list"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Flying to Qantas always enjoyable - staff always make for pleasant journey. Always happy to fly Qantas."
Cons: "One negative experience was that there was only 1hr 30mins between connecting flights. Between departing international flight - picking up luggage/toilet stop and clearing Immigration/Customs then catching bus between Qantas international domestic terminals we were racing to catch flight. As we arrived Qantas domestic terminal our names were being called over along with info the plane was awaiting our arrival. In my experience 2hrs is minimum time between connecting flights - otherwise good experience."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Appologises for the delay and the pilots attempt to make up time. The care taken during the turbulent period."

Pros: "It seemed that being in seat 33, the crew kept forgetting to come back and get our rubbish. It seemed when they collected the rubbish, they were full at seat 32 row, come back and start at seat 34"

Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Despite software issues and timtams out of stock, crew were lighthearted and joked around with passengers. V refreshing."
Cons: "Comfort still has room to improve, a foot rest would be a step in the right direction. Particularly for us shorter types or those who like to curl up and sleep. Also random upgrades (eg. Exit rows) is always appreciated. Online dinner special was excellent. Breakfast was terrible, maybe because it was the last meal so not as fresh?"

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Pros: "Crew were good & Gold ( Emerald) FFlyer so boarded well"
Cons: "Small seats (narrow) isle seat, being knocked on the shoulder by passing people"

Pros: "Got away on time"
Cons: "No wifi on board or entertainment"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
