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."

Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Pros: "On time. food were good in general."

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: "price and comfort"
Pros: "all the crew they were awesome it's my favorite airline QR⛤⛥⛦⛤⛥⛦⛤"
Cons: "I like every things"
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: "Food, crew, in flight services and entertainment were amazing. Definitely recommend this airline for trans-atlantic flights."
Cons: "I flew on the Boeing Dreamliner which is pretty loud. I recommend noise cancelling headphones or earplugs."
Pros: "This plane had lots of room and was comfortable. The food was good and unexpected. The amenities provided was thoughtful and useful."
Pros: "Good boarding. They do their best to make sure their passengers will be able to board the aircraft smoothly. Crew members are quite attentive and helpful."
Cons: "When making a review, I make comparisons with other airlines. I was expecting that Qatar Airways would be better than Emirates. It is my first time to fly Qatar airways, just to see if it's worth flying with this airline since it was the Best Airline in the world for 2015. But Emirates improved so much better that they overtaken the throne of Qatar Airways.. When you promise 5-star comfort and luxury, it should be what is promised.. Key points: 1.) Beverages should be served more than just twice during this 9 hour flight. It's a bit sarcastic that you flash a reminder on the screen that says "Keep Hydrated" but beverages were served only twice. I always had to ask for 2 glasses of water, overall 4 glasses of water on this 9 hour flight. And I can say that I got dehydrated. 2.) No hot towels for sanitary before food is served. I had to go to lavatory, wash my hands and put some alcohol before eating. Which is kinda hassle.. Sanitary is very important. 3.) I spent 8 hours layover in Doha before my flight to Milan. No complimentary meal. (Emirates provide complimentary meal if I have long layover in Dubai) 4.) I don't know if it's due to bad weather, but this flight, QR 933 was the roughest flight I have been on, not just short turbulence but long hours, maybe 3 hours. I was so dizzy and couldn't sleep. I signed up on privileged member club because I'm looking forward that Qatar would be the best choice for Airline. This review is just one of many reviews that should be looked at. Considering that you should continuously develop and aim to bounce back on the top. Do not settle for "okay", do not settle for second spot. Be the best, and compete for the first. Thank you for a safe flight. I'm looking forward for another flight with you. -Jerson Belir, first time flyer"
Pros: "upgrade flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "They need sub titles for the movies for deaf people !!!and they need to work on there social distancing way more smh delta has no one sitting in the middle seats but American Airlines just packs the whole plane out! Smh"
Pros: "They looked for 18 people to get off the plane because of weight restrictions and the process was very disorganized"
Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "New AA internet is NOT good. Much prefer GoGo. Otherwise a great flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and our seats were exit row which was comfortable. We had terrible weather and the pilots crafted an exceptional and safe landing. The flight attendant was hilarious!!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was great"
Cons: "Free beers would be cool"
Pros: "Excellent crew and friendly staff on flight."
Cons: "Due to re-evaluate cancellation priority given to guests the rebooking needs over guests needing to make requests about current flight."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."

Cons: "The plane was freezing!!!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and had to travel 60 miles at my expense to a different airport to get another flight same day"
Pros: "Pilot kept informing us what was happening..."
Cons: "Plane already late, then 15 minute taxi, then they could not drive the walkway up to us correctly so another 10 minutes wasted. We missed our connecting flight... rescheduled with different airlines much later. Missed a whole day out of our three day visit. Airline travel at its normal worst!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Transferred to Delta Air Lines and had no problem.. American Airlines kept us in the JAN airport way too long without helping us. fortunately Delta had a flight."
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful on boarding and on flight. Breezed through Passport area. Everyone went our of his/her way to answer our questions and then make suggestions."
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Pros: "The airplane is new"
Cons: "The crew was terrible, so rude, really I don’t understand why there are like that. Is like asking a favor for everything . The seat are to short of space and uncorfortable"
Pros: "I got to Boston safely and the pilot and attendants did their best jobs. Also my luggage arrived in a timely manner."
Cons: "Your seats are too small even for a relatively small person. You should hire more flight attendants so that they are more available to help customers. We should be fed on flights of 6 hours long. American treats us like chattel and make flying unappealing."
Cons: "The maintenance crew forgot to check 1 thing and that delayed us ~1h. Enough for me to have to run to catch my connection."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "I miss friendly Southwest. Even the assigned seat is kit enough for me to use AA again. People smile at Southwest and seem to enjoy their job."
Cons: "Late, missed connnection. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Very small airplane for a 3 hours flight."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Pros: "Find America airlines very expensive and then you check on the back charge the sea charge ."
Cons: "Don't know why they would load the plane then to have you wait for 10 minutes 15 minutes why they deal with that mechanical issue."
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."
Cons: "They still use the dual port for headphones for the entertainment system so you are unable to use your own headphones. I didn't watch anything because of this."
Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"
Pros: "Cockpit crew kept us informed of arrival time adjustments and upcoming turbulence. Enjoyed choices of music. Seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable. You"
Cons: "The middle seat and the guy in front of me who decided to recline!!!"
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."
Pros: "Flight crew very welcoming, flight was pleasant."
Cons: "Seating a bit tight. Didn't offer any snacks only ice water."
Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "I really loved the process of boarding the flight. The flight attendants were very nice to all of the passengers including myself. The flight was really smooth where we left the airport on time and got to our destination early. The complimentary snacks were great as well."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."
Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."
Pros: "Nothing much. Really poor quality headphones and that too the crew had hard time giving!! I felt they were very rude every time we asked for something (including water!!)"
Cons: "Everything!! They don't have Asian vegetarian meal?? It's all vegan?? Bread roll felt really hard and person behind me asked for butter/margarine and reply was very rude "we don't have any extras" so I didn't even bother asking!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Diversity training"
Pros: "The flt was not full, so I was on row 42 of 43, in a two seat block with no one near. Who wouldn't like that! The seat was very comfortable, so I could stand to be in it for a long time. It did not have a footrest that I could find, but I didn't ask about it."
Cons: "Typical of American, passengers are not allowed to stand for long periods. I was initially very disappointed that it was not a Qantas flt. And had it been full, it would have been very unpleasant. I fly with American as little as possible. The 777-300 does not have the area in the back where a few can stand, but in this case, with all the room, it wasn't necessary. I was standing for just a minute, and was told to move on. That's American for you."
