Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

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: "Crew were amazing, superb."
Cons: "Food verity, seat comfort ability, wider range of entertainment."

Pros: "crew was very sweet"
Cons: "food and wine options were terrible"

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: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."

Cons: "Delays twice which cost me lots of stress and taxi $"

Pros: "Bad service"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "Food was okay and crew was okay"
Cons: "Seats were very narrow - Etihad has better seats. Entertainment system had poor sound"

Pros: "Seats are great!"
Cons: "The food options were not that good this time."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"

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: "Very good crew"
Cons: "8 hr layover in Doha"

Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."

Pros: "The overall experience"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "It was normal flight"
Cons: "I have a layover for 12 hrs and Qatar Airways didn't offer me a hotel."

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

Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."

Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "the room on the plane, the food, the service was all great ! I was worried about the international flight but Qatar made it a great experience!!!"
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was negitive"

Cons: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"

Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Pros: "best airline food ever"
Cons: "for an international carrier, leg room is horribly cramped. singapore airlines and qantas offer better leg room in their economy class seats."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"

Pros: "Crew attention and care"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"

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: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"

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: "/Comfort"
Cons: "price"

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Pros: "Enjoyed the personal attention and charming personality of the flight crew!"
Cons: "Can't think of any!"

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "About the same vegetarian food was served at almost every meal of the 13 hour flight."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety in food for long-haul flights. The food was not at all appetizing. ---- Entertainment should have more choices."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."

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

Pros: "The staff was friendly throughout and boarding was quick. There were no delays in taking off. They had also helped organize a hotel for the long layover including meal vouchers, visa, and return transfers."
Cons: "During meal times they didn't ask the person ahead of me to put their seat up which made it difficult to eat. They also ran out of quite a few meal options on the various flights I took."

Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall service excellent"
Cons: "Seating... our seating was changed so we did not sit how we would like"

Cons: "My credit card was processed and I dint receive my e-ticket. i couldn't travel and my money is taken out of my card."

Pros: "Short flight to LCA from DOH. Efficient staff"
Cons: "Old A320 plane, no seat back entertainment, seating looking old Plastic food , very poor. Same thing happened to me last year, still no improvement on this flight sector. Definitely not 5 Star service that Qatar constantly advertises."
