Cons: "Seats for its along way"

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."

Pros: "seats were awesome, so as the food and the occasional snacks were delightful"

Pros: "Everything! It just awesome"
Cons: "Nothing can be better, an awesome flight"

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: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

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

Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."

Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."

Cons: "Small chairs"

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."

Cons: "Poor service, long layovers with not enough lounge space. Misguiding customer service"

Pros: "Service, seats, beds, food, entertainment, EVERYTHING !!!"

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

Pros: "Terry was wonderful"
Cons: "N/A"

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

Pros: "Lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Originally I was assigned a wonderful seat but then I was put in the back by window it was very cramped and noisy. The flight stuff was mediocre and the food was not that good either. Big difference from the flight over"

Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "Food was mediocre in options and taste. Not the most comfortable flight either. The Manila to Doha leg was much less comfortable than the Doha Philly leg."

Pros: "Incredibly attentive service"
Cons: "Internet service didn’t work. Also waiting for can refund because of unannounced 12 hour delay on the outbound flight."

Cons: "Luggage checking is very poor, the person on checking ask me to remove my shawal, i said to him it is insult to me , i never forget it , never plan to travel on Qatar airways"

Cons: "Flight was very long"

Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Completely satisfied. Excellent all the way!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank You."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

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: "Same"
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."

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: "The crew was excellent in their mannerisms, efficiency, service and never ending smiles."
Cons: "The flight was not overly crowded and many of the passengers were seated with three people per set of seats while others were seated individually and able to spread out with much more comfort. I felt that when the flight crew saw this they could have made everyone much more comfortable by switching people to two people per row thus giving them more room especially on such a long flight."

Pros: "food was decent and the staff on the plane were pleasant."
Cons: "Qatar airlines blatantly lied to me on several occasions and treated me like I was dirt. They lost my baggage and re assigned my seat several times each time pushing me further back into the plane and eventually putting me into a crowded row when the plane was virtually empty."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"

Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"

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: "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 ."

Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."

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

Pros: "Shared a row with three seats with another person, middle seat was free! New entertaiment screens."
Cons: "Food was average to less."

Pros: "The head flight attendant in the economy cabin was nice, after a bit."
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working and all they could offer me was something farther back in the cabin. As a Gold privilege member, I choose to sit at the front of the cabin, and yet the entertainment system was unavailable. I wish Qatar Airways could compensate me for my unfavorable experience."

Pros: "Flights out of and to Philadelphia cuts out the whole traveling to and from NY or DC. This is a big plus for me since I live in Delaware."

Pros: "Kept my Insulated tea mug filled with hot water."
Cons: "Plane left 1 hr late. Crew tried to make me check my carry on because it was a "full" flight and even though my medication was in it and I did not have a lock. Baggage handling bent my pull up handle - it no longer works - suit ace was brand new."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "It would be great to have just a little more seating room"

Pros: "Feeling Covid safe."
Cons: "More attention to those not wearing masks properly ."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "too crowded"

Cons: "Top carrier"

Pros: "Seat comfortable and the seatbelts actually fit!"
Cons: "Nothing relly"

Pros: "Cree was great. The switch from one airplane to another was smooth. Snacks were great selection and enjoyed the WiFi"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "this is the airline"

Pros: "Nothing three hours late I went to dc and then took the train"

Pros: "Crew was really nice."
Cons: "My first flight was delay because of that I lost my second flight."

Cons: "We left Salt Lake City so late that I missed all my train connections and ruined my plans."

Pros: "Standard boarding The plane was on time"
Cons: "Better boarding process.Such as the one used by Southwest"

Pros: "The flight was on time the crew and captain was very helpful. They got us on and off quickly and safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Almost 3 hours of delayed"
Cons: "Almost"

Pros: "Crew was the best I have had in 2019 on Delta, the only good crew."
Cons: "Everything at the Atlanta Airport. From the airport and staff itself to those working for Delta Airlines. It has been so bad, that I am thinking of flying with American Airlines again and avoiding the Atlanta Airport all together. Absolutely the worst airport in the country, Delta not much better"

Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"

Pros: "Entertaining crew"
Cons: "On time arrival (we were late)."

Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."

Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"

Pros: "Don't know yet, because I have not left Korea."
Cons: "Not happy that DELTA changed my flight again and now I arrive (6) hours later in Philly. Longer layover in Detroit is not comforting! Hoping/praying that DELTA doesn't change more on this flight going home!"

Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "terrible seat comfort, late departure due to airline’s booking problems"

Pros: "We left early"

Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"

Pros: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."

Pros: "Pilot was courteous, pleasant and kept us informed of flight status."

Cons: "Seats have no leg room!!!"

Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"

Pros: "Smooth , fast, comfortable"

Pros: "This flight was spectacular! I loved how the flight attendants served with pleasure and delight! They are very polite and patient, especially with the children. I have never seen flight attendants work with so much compassion and joy!"
Cons: "This would have to be my best flight so far!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"

Pros: "It was short and fast."

Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."

Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. No smoking in Minneapolis airport"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The staff were friendly, the flight fast and calm."
Cons: "Nothing that can be done, just tough being 6'5" in a connection plane."

Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."

Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."

Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."

Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."

Cons: "my flight from JFK to Cancun had entertainment (TV, movie screen, headphones, etc). This one did not. Was kinda disappointed."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Cons: "If flight is full all the time get a bigger plane"

Pros: "My aisle seat on the first flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"

Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"

Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"

Pros: "The attendants"
Cons: "The delay and no free wifi."

Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."

Pros: "I thought the seats were pretty decent."
Cons: "I was not able to checkin online"
