Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."

Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."

Pros: "This was an AA flight.I never expect excellent service from AA."

Pros: "prompt check in , ample baggages allowances, food and overall steward services."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."
Cons: "Unfortunately they ran out of some food by the time they got to us and only had fish left. It was okay, just not my favorite. We were 35 minutes late taking off which contributed with me missing my connecting flight."

Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Free Wi-Fi would be nice"

Cons: "Some turbulence awoke us midway through the overnight flight."

Pros: "JAL is curteous and professional. They had a flight attendant dedicated to helping me and my infant daughter and provided bassinet and assitant with luggage during the flight.

Pros: "Amazing service"

Pros: "The crew's attention to detail, service."

Cons: "when its best there is no comment"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seat"

Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."

Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."

Pros: "Not-so-full flight meant we could move about and choose more comfortable seats."
Cons: "TV unit didn’t work, lucky me. They tried two times to restart and reboot but to no avail. The attendant said my choices were to not watch or move to an empty seat. I chose to sit next to my wife."

Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everything....The service,the food,the in-flight entertainment(so many films to chose from) the flight attendants were brilliant,the flight was smooth it went by so fast as though time didn't exist.I recommend Qatar Airways to everybody."
Cons: "Can't find any fault...Sorry!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Caring service, good pod seats on A350 and airy cabin."

Pros: "Crew members were very accommodating and helpful (Valencial & Hanane). They go the extra mile to make sure that we were enjoying the flight in the best possible ways. This is what makes Qatar Airways stand out and different from the rest."

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."

Pros: "Best host staff"

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Non-muslim aircraft allow standard prayer practices inside the cabin but Qatar airways cries over safety issues."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Need good wheel chair service."

Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."

Pros: "Short flight, seat pitch OK and food adequate. Good crew."
Cons: "Bus boarding always chaotic"

Pros: "On time and 5 star service"

Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Pros: "My steward, Gabriel, provided service that exceeded my expectations. He made the long haul more bearable."
Cons: "The shape of the seats was not optimal for my height/size."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "The food was very good, I liked vegetarian options and my stomach doesn't hurt after the plane food as usual. I like the bathrooms clean and nice smelling soap. The crew was very attentive and eager to please their guest but consistent and insisting on the safety rules (belts buckled up and seats in upright position)"
Cons: "There wasn't many good options for entertainment. Only a couple new movies although I liked the TED talks. Also I liked the plane but I wish there were some foot steps and more comfortable head support on the seats. I didn't like also strange option for Golden members in economy seats to be able to "order" food before regular people. There were only 3 options and everyone had the same choice. So basically all that crew does is just asking which course gold members want an hour before serving. It seemed silly with no actual benefit."

Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."

Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."

Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. The stewards were beautiful and young not like on US flights.."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, My tail bone was hurting badly and sitting on pillows did not provide any relief. The food was terriable. Not much choice."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The business class seats on this A330 are to tight when turned into a bed."

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."
Cons: "Toilet out of order from beginning of very long flight. Food ordinary. Doha airport transfer awful."

Pros: "A plane I could sleep on...very comfortable!"

Cons: "Very happy traveller"

Pros: "Super comfortable n lovely crew"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Movie selection"

Cons: "The food !"

Pros: "Seat comfortable, we paid extra for emergency exit"
Cons: "The entertainment system for a 5 hour flight was poor quality and for limited time only. Also the quality of the vegetarian meal was average"

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Not using Air Fiji."

Cons: "Business class is Not a business class seat On the new 737."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "I slept most of the way"

Cons: "Older planes are very outdated."

Pros: "Friendly efficient crew. Clean modern Airbus aircraft and no delays."
Cons: "Food was limited and not great."

Pros: "I was excited to come back to the USA after a long vacation. When we arrived at the airport, the security started asking me questions immediately even before I checked in. They demanded I show them the ticket before it was even printed. When I explained that I was trying to check-in for the first time. They told me I was going to be reviewed upstairs and put a sticker in my passport. I proceeded to check in and just walked thru the normal security measures. After scanning my bags in security, I discovered there was no security meeting and proceeded to my gate. After the gate, everyone in line was subjected to a second security screen. This was a manual search and all articles were removed and repacked again. Then we proceeded to the plane entry where everyone needed to verify passport and ticket again. Later in the flight, I was having indigestion problem from my documented medical acid reflux problem and asked for a cup of water. He said sure and walked away. He never came back again.10 minutes later, I pressed the attendant call button again. 10 minutes later and no one came over. 15 minutes after that Albert came back over and said, "I see you have your call light on, please put your seat back up again." I can complied and he immediately turned off the light and walked away. 10 minutes later, Albert came by with the water cart and parked it right behind my seat. He proceeded to hand out water to everyone behind my seat. 30 minutes later the water cart arrived and I finally received my water (75 minutes after I asked!) Thanks Albert, I'll be following up with your management to see that disciplinary action is taken."
Cons: "See above. The above problem caused me discomfort, pain, stress."

Pros: "Service is nice. Very friendly. Food is good."

Cons: "with 39 passengers on a 60 persons flight the following annoncement came up: we need 5 volunteers or we leave 524kg of baggage we have to leave here. Than the locals started to bribe the personel... we have no idea if and when our stuff arrives..."

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "90 minutes delay without information or appology."

Pros: "Ilana, the attendant at the check in was so amazing!!! She went out of her way to find our friend a seat close to us. We just loved everything and everyone about Fiji airways. THANK YOU!!"

Pros: "Overall it went quickly."
Cons: "It was little disorganized at the gate, there were several crying babies, and someone was throwing up behind me."

Pros: "Nothing. I felt they were racist. Not only were we not able to board the plane early with our Baby based on Veronica denying our request request I notice the female crew would acknowledge the other Babies and never noticed our African American Baby."
Cons: "The food and he service was awful."

Pros: "All service on board was great"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Staff could have had more control.of boarding process. Pax just swarmed the boarding line."

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "This was an older plane than the one from Sydney. No seat back unit. IFE was old screens that drop from the overhead. 2nd show was cut off mid stream due to landing. Seat uncomfortable and showing their age. Full flight so very crowded."

Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."

Cons: "Small tight seating and horrible food."

Cons: "The food was okay. For a long flight I was expecting more options."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfortable ride."

Minimum entertainment options - approx 30 movies all together and most were older. Food was not good. Small seats with very little leg too"

Pros: "IT was a quick flight."
Cons: "People always used my the way at my comfort seat to shortn there way...so it wasnt really comfortable. The Crew seemed really stressed."

Pros: "Great service. Flight attendants are super helpful and nice. The meals are really good too. Small things as movie selection was amazing too. An overall outstanding experience. Vinaka!"
Cons: "It was perfect."

Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."

Pros: "free food and wine and beer"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor with old screens coming down from the ceiling. No choice of movies."

Cons: "The plane is old and the only entertainment was a screen overhead not easy to see. Hard to keep the children occupied. A family of 4 cannot all sit together as the configuration is 3 & 3."

Pros: "Service provided was nothing less than desirable! They were great!"
Cons: "Boarding but that was due to the passengers. They don't listen"

Pros: "All of the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. The seats were as comfortable as possible given the length of the flight."
Cons: "Some of the food was actually quite good; breakfast on the return flight was not good. The cabin was extremely cold...I wore jeans, and a sweatshirt and even with the blanket I was uncomfortably cold. My husband, who is rarely cold, even felt chilled."

Cons: "Flight was very cold. We went through security three times. Limited number of movies and music. Food was not poor quality. Boarding took forever and there were a couple of excuses for the delay given in an unprofessional manner. Overall I would pay extra to take a different airline next time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
