Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline"

Pros: "comfortable seats. Crew was friendly. Food was good."
Cons: "cannot think of any. I am Qatar airways fan"

Pros: "The crew was v good"
Cons: "The seats and boarding staff"

Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."

Pros: "To long lay over"
Cons: "Direct flight from South Africa to USA"

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Pros: "Stuff are so excellent clean plane good food"

Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive and very helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Amazing experience. Pinnacle of customer service"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The Service is always great, entertainment system is great and the food is even good."
Cons: "I liked everything!"

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."

Pros: "Good staff and service"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"

Pros: "It was really good, crew helped a lot me n my baby, it was not difficult to travel alone with my baby"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Cleanliness"

Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."

Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"

Cons: "Dirty old plane"

Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "TImings"
Cons: "Price"

Cons: "No WiFi"

Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."

Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."

Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"

Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"

Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."

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

Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."

Cons: "I found the bed rather hard for sleeping on my side. When I awoke, I was stiff and sore."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Connection"

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very much cushion for your bottom, especially for a 15 hour flight. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded on the flight. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."

Pros: "I was moved up to comfort instead of main cabin."
Cons: "The wifi didn’t seem to be working on the flight even tho it said it was equipped."

Pros: "Same crew and great experiments again"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you! Very safe and controlled Covid procedures. Made me feel safe."

Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."

Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"

Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."

Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"

Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"

Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"

Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."

Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"

Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"

Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Cons: "Smooth on time flight"

Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"

Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."

Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."

Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Pros: "Staff, service, options"

Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."

Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"

Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."

Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."

Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."

Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"

Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."

Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."

Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"

Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."

Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."

Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."

Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19 still waiting for refund ??"

Pros: "Staff was efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent and nicely served."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."

Cons: "You expect more from business class"

Pros: "Newer aircraft. Fantastic service"

Pros: "The flight entertainment system was fantastic."
Cons: "The flight had onboard wifi which was awesome to be able to be online during the flight but it did lack the level of service expected. Everything on the flight was fantastic except the wifi which kept dropping out"

Pros: "The fact that I was not able to fly due to ethiad trying to make extra money was something I will Never forget"
Cons: "No airline has ever treated me this poorly. I hope this never happens ever again to anyone"

Pros: "Super easy"
Cons: "There wasn’t no Harry Potter films"

Cons: "No sweets were served in any meals. Not even a chocolate candy."

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Seats didn’t work. Both seats couldn’t recline. Not nice on a 13hr flight! Gluten free meal was very average. Poor entertainment compared to other airlines."

Cons: "It was bit long. Especially long hault at abudhabi."

Pros: "Prompt departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Lack of leg space and the food"

Pros: "I liked everything but I still could not find out if I was getting credit on the frequent flyer sustem"

Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."

Cons: "The seats were cramped, small compared to the flight I took from JFK to Abu Dhabi. Again, The boarding was delayed and no announcements were made. I am saying this despite I prefer Etihad for my international flights. This time the experience was lame."

Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."

Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"

Cons: "Since our custom and emigration checking was in Abu Dhabi, in Chicago, the flight used a domestic terminal. For our final leg of the flight, we had to haul all six pieces of luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 3. Then we were told that our American Airlines flight from Chicago to Kalamazoo is not a valid one. So we were booked to a different flight 12 hours later. We had to stay in Chicago for 12 hours on our own. Neither Etihad nor American Airlines provide any support for that time period in Chicago. Since it was Etihad ticket, According to international norm, Etihad should take the responsibility for this problem and compensated passengers."

Cons: "Same type of food. They ran out dinner so served the previous entree. Turn the crew light on for water. No air hostesses showed up."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "I liked the flight from abhudhabi to hyderabad"
Cons: "On board staff not responding not friendly"

Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Our Chicago to Abu Dhabi flight was delayed by over 6 hours Our Abu Dhabi layover was long, because the airline ended up canceling/delaying the connecting flight"

Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "1. Seat changes are done last minute despite booking the seats online with out informing us. I felt that there was no point securing online seating early. Difficult to adjust seats in the last minute. I was separated from my family. Given wrong information about seats. Had to real work with staff to finally get seats adjusted. Not very easy to work staff. Understanding of English is not that good. 2.Had problems checking the luggage all through despite connection was through star alliance. 3.Had to wait in airport in transit to get boarding passes. Did not understand why it was despite having booked seats early. 4.Seats provided were not good. 5.Also head phones didn't work. I told staff three times and still no response. Finally gave up i had booked because ratings were good. But service was not even close to expectations. Dissapointed."

Cons: "I wasn't able to take the flight for the reasons mentioned above."

Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"

Cons: "Food was horrible. First of all, we didn't get what we had requested. On top of it, whatever they had provided was substandard. Especially whatever they had given as sandwich."

Pros: "Timings good."
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance very poor, I suffered a lot."

Pros: "It was such a long flight with almost 15 hours of travel. So, I was bit worried. But the flight crew was all set to make us comfortable. Their patience, attention to all requirements and efficiency really impressed me."

Cons: "Food wasn't great."

Pros: "A wide variety of entertainment available on board"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage and the claim process is vague. I was told I will be contacted with my claims number at the airport. Thus far I haven't heard anything from the airline. The number given goes straight to voice mail."

Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I couldn't sleep on the plane."

Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing and no one is responding to number presented on the sheet in Chicago, very bad. Please get my baggage to me and be kind to the customers in aftermath of the services."

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Seat in front reclined too far back Fewer food options despite pre-requested meal."

Cons: "I had to wait more than an hour when I pushed the help light button, even though there was no troubles in the air! Also, I asked for a cup of water couple of times, well over 30 min, and I only got that cup with the meal!"

Cons: "plane was an older model a bit noisy inside"

Pros: "Services n hospitality"
Cons: "Washroom maintenance can be better."

Pros: "Goo entertainment options"
Cons: "entertainment options shut down too early and when plane is on the ground"

Pros: "Fantastic crew! Good selection for tv, food was good. Baggage checked all the way through, no problems or complaints at all. Will definitely fly Etihad again."

Cons: "Hair was served in the food and the etihad airlines did not do anything other than offer a mere 10k goodwill miles and said even that they don't do but we're doing me a favor by doing so. I would never travel again on this airline ever."

Cons: "I mention below."

Pros: "On time / shedule ahead departure or arrival."
Cons: "Seating arrangement."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Food. Not served according to the menu. Kochi to Abu Dhabi -vegetarian. Abu Dhabi to Chicago __vegetarian no options. -Vegetarian food not tasty.At last before landing in Chicago some non veg."

Cons: "There was a bad odor of the bathroom, also I asked a blanket from the crew, then after 20 minutes I got it. Also the little rude dealing from the one of the crew. Little islamic programs"

Cons: "They took close to one hour to check us in and give us boarding pass. Once it was delayed, with no time to get things in time for security and boarding we had to rush with two kids. Although there was one checked bag allowed for infant according to the reservations they charged us 100$ for additional bag. Despite them delaying the Check in process they said if I don't pay for the checked bag I will miss my flight. This is becoming more and more of a problem with American Airlines and looks like Etihad cares less for this and they simply told me in Chicago that it was American Airlines issue and not theirs! This is totally frustrating and I will avoid American Airlines connections And future flights with Etihad as well. International travelers watch out for connections with American Airlines."

Cons: "Wheelchair facility should be prompt. we had to wait for an hour to get it.. Also it is not that spacious.."

Cons: ".."

Pros: "Great Headrest Neck Pillow Comfy Headphones Large Toilets"

Cons: "The guy in front of me reclined and I couldn't even use my tray at all. Had to hold me food and drinks in my hand. Unbelievable!!!!!! Horrible experience."

Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "In other wise excellent service, carry on bag size policy is not practical, Please keep it similar to other airlines. Please don't expect us to get a separate bag size to fly on Etihad. This one headache which could remove Etihad from our future travel consideration."
