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: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"
Pros: "I was already travelling 5000km so I didn't notice anything"
Cons: "Turbulences ... but it's ok."
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: "very courteous flight crew"
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: "Just bathroom in end"
Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
Pros: "Business Class is wonderful"
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: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
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."
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 :)"
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"
Pros: "For the first time, my vegetarian food was pretty good and I didn't have an upset stomach as soon as I landed in India. It was a miracle for me. Thanks, Qatar airways."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"
Cons: "No upgrades. Worst flight."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "One economy cabin as packed with people and the other economy cabin had only 1 person per row. Spread people out more so that they aren't really uncomfortable for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."
Cons: "Plane seemed old and not upkeep. Chair in front of me leaned back to 5 inches from my face, every time he moved, the tray fell. The air seemed to be off in the front of the plane. Was sweating. But when I went to the bathroom in the back, it was cold"
Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. 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."
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: "all things"
Cons: "don't know"
Cons: "Everything. Major delays lost vacation times"
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"
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."
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "almost an hour late - and no explanation. First class was about equal to Jet Blue regular class but without seat power."
Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed inexperienced and not professional."
Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "The pilots managed the turbulance and landing in the moutains beautifully."
Cons: "The gate was vhanged three times...announcements unclear."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Cons: "Confusion when boarding. Uncomfortable seat. No entertainment on a international flight! What kind of person thinks that is a good idea? I thought I will be flying British Airway for the flight back home that is why I bought this whole flight ticket. If I had known it will be AA flying back, I would fun as far away as possible."
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
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."
Cons: "No outlet and waited idle for a long time before getting to get off plane also had to walk my bag back bc there was no overhead storage space in the bins which prevented me from getting off the plane sooner"
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: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."
Cons: "no personal tv in each seat in the international route"
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."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
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."
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"
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"
