Airline reviews

Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and served snacks and beverages at regular intervals. One of the fellow passengers was over reacting to some minor unintentional neglect by an female crew member and told her to shut up when she was trying to understand the issue. But the crew handled the situation very professionally."
Cons: "Food could’ve been better."

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."

Pros: "All great experience!!!"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Very happy on Doha to ORD"

Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."

Pros: "nice crew, great service"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing for kids. First time i have seen that no toys for kids. No tv and entertaiment for adults"

Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Cons: "TOOO long."

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"

Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"

Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"

Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

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: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."

Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Very nice crew."

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as passport security had reported that I was intoxicated. I was badly injured in the armed forces and have lost my hearing which affects my balance. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy as s personal trainer. But was given seat E. Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too. Totally disgusted with the whole flight and crew when everytime I've used the same company before it was excellent."

Cons: "Perhaps boarding."

Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."

Pros: "Fast refreshing flight. Food was great."
Cons: "They ran out of food options and I was only row 10."

Pros: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."
Cons: "I am lacto vegetarian but my only option was vegan. Second meal was a banana and some tired bits of pepper and carrot. Surely an airline like Emirates can offer a meat-free option!"

Pros: "Great movies and responsive crew"
Cons: "Something weird was going on about how food was served and how people went about deciding what to have."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."

Pros: "Crew was excellent but seemed stretched ."
Cons: "Overall ICE was great but didn't seem to have many new films"

Pros: "Friendly, capable crew. Seats very comfortable - properly flat/horizontal beds."
Cons: "Connection was too rushed in Dubai. It seemed odd that they treated it as a night flight (dark cabin), given that it left at 10am - is this for the convenience of the staff?"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight.

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"

Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."

Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."

Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. All of them. They gave me great service. It was once of the best long haul flights I've had in economy. Fantastic. I was seated in seat 80H. Please see to it that the cabin crew who serviced this area are well rewarded. If every flight had crew like these guys and gals then flying would be a lot more enjoyable."
Cons: "I really can't find anything to complain about."

Pros: "Good service and on time departure and arrival."

Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Just about everything"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "I require assistance due to a spinal injury which makes walking and standing difficult but not impossible. When we arrived at Dubai I was told my name was not on the list for assistance even though I had been taken to the flight in a wheelchair and informed check-in and flight crew. The Emerates assistance people made it seem as if they were doing us a favour by assisting us,made us stand around waiting for a buggy then for the train at no time did they show any respect or compassion for the people they were supposed to be assisting."

Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"

Pros: "Very nice check in, because the people weren't rude. They accepted my luggage and gave me my passes."

Pros: "I ordered Asian vegetarian food but was given normal vegetarian food. However, it wasn't a big problem. Apart from that, everything was fine."

Pros: "Efficient and on time."

Pros: "In flight entertainment system and food. Courteous crew."

Pros: "Largely pain free experience"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."

Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."

Cons: "Not enough movie varities."

Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"

Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."

Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."

Pros: "It was my first time flying with Turkish airlines. I was surprised that economy class was treated like first class in other airlines. I felt like a queen! The food was just unbelievably good (usually I'm not excited about food on planes). I can't imagine what experience you get in actual first class then. Great job! Please, never change it!"
Cons: "The boarding starts an hour before departure. It's overkill. But if it makes you do your job the way you do, that's awesome."

Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."

Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"

Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."

Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."

Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

Pros: "surpassed our expectation"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff was rude, was so bad cannot even use word customer service to describe it"

Pros: "great company."

Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."

Pros: "The service, food, efficiency"
Cons: "It seemed that the handling and leaving the plane took very long, probably due to airport services"

Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."

Pros: "Food, service, attitude."
Cons: "In Istanbul airport not enough people speaking English. No USb to charge my phone."

Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."

Pros: "Attention & willingness to help. Very pleasant flight from start to finish"

Pros: "great movie selection."
Cons: "was asked to show up 1 hour before boarding to a "secure area" with 5 different ID checks... however, once in, no restrooms available and boarding took a long time and was delayed."

Pros: "flight was on time helpful staff nice meals"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"

Pros: "Pilot communication"
Cons: "Free snacks & drinks"

Cons: "Better choice of food such as prepacked salads etc not just sandwiches"

Cons: "Being on time for a change"

Pros: "Flight 100% punctual, seats comfortable, cabin super clean, crew friendly and professional"

Cons: "More legroom."

Pros: "Check In went fast, getting through security was also fast. The price was excellent."
Cons: "Small seat, did not recline fully but it was an economy ticket."

Pros: "Efficient speedy boarding but slow at Dubrovnik airport going through passport check"
Cons: "Free drink on board would have been nice as paid more especially for BA but apart from the baggage allowance and quick processing there was little to differentiate from a budget airline"

Pros: "Excellent service I don’t have nothing to say was amazing"

Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"

Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."

Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"

Pros: "See above, ditto."

Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."

Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."

Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"

Pros: "Everything it was painless"

Pros: "Service was really good"
Cons: "The seats for business class were economy seats but with the middle seat being a tray!! Expecting bigger seats with more leg room. Disappointed."

Pros: "Crew in club was excellent. Could not ask for more."
Cons: "Ground staff absolutely unorganised and rude. Boarding a complete shambles. No announcement, no group and priority boarding. This resulted in us losing our a slot and the flight to be delayed by almost an hour. One would think they have never boarded a plane before."

Pros: "Timing of flight. Gate not too distant at Gatwick.."
Cons: "The check in and seat allocation process is awful. Boarding was chaotic with passengers still standing as we rolled back (quite sensibly the pilot did not want to miss the slot). Sitting around rows 19/20 means that even on an a two hour flight, you risk attendants never reaching you with the trolley."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."

Pros: "fast efficient, lovely crew,"
Cons: "shame B.A. is turning into a budget airline, despite the high standards of service trying to be maintained by the excellent crews."

Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"

Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "BA has got rid of in flight services - so what am I paying so much for? - and made me exit and re-enter through security despite the fact that I’d checked in for a connecting flight. Overall not a positive experience and don’t think I’ll be rushing to fly with them again."

Pros: "The journey was not that long as expected"
Cons: "Delays...."

Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."

Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
