Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."

Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."

Cons: "No complains. Qatar has always been my preferred airline."

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Cons: "Excellent service and stuff"

Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."

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

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"

Pros: "The crew was professional. I had acute diarrhoea they insisted to eat some thing before they gave me the medicine,which was perfect. They checked every time my situation they even asked if I need a doctor waiting for me at the airport."

Pros: "I like that they deliver me safe and sound to Vietnam"
Cons: "I would prefer no interruptions while I am watching my movie"

Pros: "As efficient as ever"

Cons: "Did not serve vegetarian food even after repeated requests"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"

Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."

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: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Pros: "The plane was relatively new, the original departure time was also slightly delayed, but overall it wasn’t that bad."
Cons: "The hot food has some room for improvement, although it tasted good, there was hardly any vegetables in the chicken dish."

Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing much."

Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"

Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "it felt like sitting in a sardine box"

Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."

Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Pros: "It arrived on Time."
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken and had to be restarted a couple of times before It crashed completely. Food sucked."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."

Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "Meals, comfort, and crew all above average."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Great food, entertainment options and personal space"
Cons: "Crew left something to be desired. Didnt check on anyone or "make the rounds", I had to get up and seek them out. Went almost 12 hours between meals and seemed annoyed when I asked for food"

Pros: "The crew went above and beyond the meet my needs. I requested the Cathay draft beer Betsy which wasn't loaded, unfortunately, but the crew managed to find one in economy."
Cons: "It was annoying the entertainment content on the A350 and 777-300ER were slightly different. I was watching a show but could not finish it."

Pros: "Cathay Pacific continues to delivery a stellar experience in first class even on shorter legs such as the soon to be discontinued New York to Vancouver flight (888/865). They even brought back Krug, which they opened on the ground no less in New York, and offer access to AA Flagship Dining at JFK which itself offers flagship dining."

Cons: "The crew should be more kind."

Pros: "I was unable to board the flight so there is nothing to talk about."
Cons: "Provide options for accommodation, refund or alternate flights after announcing a 24-hour delay. I had to repurchase my flight from HKG to SFO after finding out that a return ticket is treated as abandoned if one does not fly one way. Not the level of service expected from an international airline."

Cons: "Very small in the plane"

Cons: "Food was lacking, everything else excellent! Not enough components to the meals. Be nice to have cheese/crackers. Better salad."

Pros: "Service, food, excellent. Most of all, the new entertainment system & window in bathroom!"

Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"

Cons: "Plan was 2 hours late departing, my daughter also took this flight 6 weeks beforehand and had similar delays."

Pros: "haagan daz chocolate ice cream was a surprise"
Cons: "the rice with fish didn’t taste that nice and the veggy was a bit overcooked"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very kind and helpful. I was very tired and was feeling a little under the weather.

My regret is that I didn’t catch her name."

Cons: "Gate change from 34 to 4 in hgk airport was too far."

Pros: "My mother requires additional assistance for boarding (wheelchair for the ramp, a little extra time). Cathay adjusted our seats so we would be located reasonably near the doors yet close enough to the bathroom for her convenience. The stewards literally took her by the arm to help her to her seat, even taking her bags for her. And they made a point of checking on her several times during the flight. Absolutely amazing!"

Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "Premium Economy waste of money , staff don’t clear rubbish away No room very disappointed won’t do it again"

Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."

Pros: "Cup noodles and snacks available throughout the flight."
Cons: "Chicken curry ran out by the time I got served. I don’t really eat beef so I chose pasta, but the pasta was not substantial because it was just pasta noodles and sauce- no veges or anything with it. So I ate some cup noodles but that’s also more carbs. So no protein was available for my diet."

Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."

Pros: "Agent actually walked me to my connecting flight due to short turn around time which saved me from having to search the way by myself."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very attentive. Loved Cathay Pacific’s signature non alcoholic drink”Ocean Breeze”."
Cons: "The food was really not at the level you would expect. There was only a pork and a fish option. The fish was fishy and the dessert was gelatin cake thing that did not appease my dessert craving."

Pros: "Everything. Great staff, punctual departing yimes, good communications. I have taken many airlines and this is the best if not one of the best. Keep up the great work. Only suggestion I would say is showing what types of foods offered as special meals, menu i mean."

Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."

Pros: "We always fly with Cathay. Usually 2-3 times per year and feel the staff are professional and service is extremely good. I recently fractured my ankle and staff provided excellent assistance."
Cons: "The breakfasts for economy passengers is shocking. This has not always been the case. However, Now it is presented in a card board box and of very poor quality."

Cons: "Baby sharing seat with parent was very crowded"

Pros: "Seat super small, could not avoid touching other passengers, I am not obese."
Cons: "One toilet for 120 economy class passengers, no beverages served complimentary, even a glass of water cost you. Unbelievable cheap, crappy airline now, what a downfall for such a carrier."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "total flight bsolutely excelente custumer service stuffs was very friendly outbound and inbound no dilays"

Pros: "Nothing g"
Cons: "Business class was same as economy and I paid a lot more. Ordered special meal but didn't get either"

Cons: "They kicked me off the flight and I missed my husbands performance"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."

Pros: "Nothing. Delayed. Waiting around a lot. No satisfactory explanation."
Cons: "Delays. Poor communication. Disappointment that you can now count on BA to be worse than just about all other airlines."

Cons: "Ran out of food. Credit card machine didn't work,Crew can't take cash. Lots of shrugs and 'not our fault'. Better service from the low cost carriers. Expected better from ba."

Pros: "My first domestic flight with BA for years yet the service imo has got even slicker and better. From check-in to boarding to disembarking and all ahead of schedule, I doubt if I would fly domestically with anyone else."

Pros: "The entertainment this time was working. Always a bonus. Loos were kept clean."
Cons: "The younger staff are moody and sullen. If you don't like long hall flights change your job. BA your seats are SO old it's like sitting on a park bench for hours. I know we are in the lowest paid seats but it really isn't acceptable."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "1 hour flight took 3 hours because they sat on the ground counting baggage...twice.nothing"

Cons: "Las películas no se podían poner desde el inicio"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"

Pros: "On time , efficient process. Courteous counter staff."
Cons: "Only H2O. Nicole and dime on everything else."

Pros: "Because someone was sitting in my seat, I was moved to one near the exit which has more legroom, without having to pay £28. The flight was on time and we were kept well informed of some chaos that was happening around push back."
Cons: "The atrocious check-in process - why only 24 hours or less? Why are you always allocated a seat between other people. Why is it almost impossible to change that? - oh yes, because BA want you to pay a premium to avoid the hassle."

Pros: "The crew as expected were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were somehow closer together than our flight out so knees rested against the seat in front. The in flight food service had run out sandwiches and the flight was delayed."

Pros: "Disembarking"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "The attention of the flight attendents. And tht We were on time."

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment and info system was small and not clear."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and on time, plane was clean and warm."
Cons: "Did not think this was any better than the budget airlines, I expected more from British Airways, no entertainment on board - food limited, some gifts ran out."

Pros: "British airways have always been good and my best airline to fly."
Cons: "This occasion, the manager was So rude to me and even called me a liar in front of too many people. I don't speak or understand French and the woman really embarrassed my life. I checked-in online before I got to the airport and I mistakenly went to terminal 1 instead of terminal 2. So by the time I realised and got to terminal one, the baggage collection stand had closed because I was there by 15:18. To make the long story short, I got through the security where I was delayed for 20mins searching through my things and when I asked about time, the security said the flight won't leave with out me and they would inform them about the delay before I get to my departure gate. Anyway, I got to the gate with some time left and this extremely rude woman whom I was told is the manager insulted the living day light out of my life and turned me back. So I didn't fly with BA in the end. No matter the situation and despite me being late, I believe things would have been handled better. And even if the manager felt I was lying, she should have been more diplomatic about it and speak to me in a good manner. I won't be recommending flying BA from Nice to anyone. That woman was so hurrible, that experience haunts me psychologically."

Pros: "Plane was on time and crew were friendly"
Cons: "The screens on this plane are old and tired and the touchscreen is also dated and clumsy. The food was unappealingly average. I saw many of the cream cheese breakfast rolls discarded in the crew trash collection including my own."

Cons: "Drinks not complimentary. The tickets we bought come with one checked bag for free, but the airline said since we bought it on Kayak it doesn't come with a free checked bag. Had to pay an extra $40 for each. Deceptive policy if you ask me on behalf of British Airways."

Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room, pleasant flight attendants."
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm through most of the flight."

Pros: "Plane comfortable, crew helpful and competent, food fine."
Cons: "No Club World lounge in Ft Lauderdale despite BA's advice to arrive three hours early for intl flights. Shocking waiting area - crowded, noisy, shabby."

Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."

Cons: "Super tight seating on the plane. Terrible customer service at checkin in Lanzarote. there was a weather issue the day prior and hundreds of travelers were stranded. The baggage belt was backed up and therefore the staff couldn’t check in more travelers. This, we learned, not from the staff, but from walking around and noting the stacks of luggage etc Far better would have been for them to inform the 200 or so people that were waiting in line for 1 hour. You must pay for anything on the flight. A small bag of peanuts or such would be nice."

Pros: "I liked that I got home safe"
Cons: "I didn't like the 2 hour delay to my schedule. Zero complimentary drinks or snacks to say sorry. Bumpy ride for two and half hours. Stuck on the tarmac at Gatwick for 40 minutes."

Cons: "Flight full takes longer time for boarding . But staff was nice and efficient . Lots of leg room comfortable chairs."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"

Pros: "Video was good, seats were good."
Cons: "Man doing the check-in in Madrid (site 909) was very rude and unhelpful."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. They sat me in the last roll on the left with 2 seats. I could not recline the seat and I had to travel sitting up right all the way from Spain to Brazil. Horrible!"
Cons: "They should have offered the empty seats to the passenger as soon the plane closed to take off."

Pros: "The tablet selection was very variety."
Cons: "The announcement was hard to hear the volume was loud but something not quiet understandable"

Cons: "There was no air"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything as expected!"
Cons: "Had to pay for food. not a single chip :("

Pros: "Comfortable seats from the good old days on board B 737"

Cons: "The hidden baggage fees was a surprise when checking in. I have never not been allowed one check in bag for an flight from Europe to the US. The crew did what was needed but made you feel like they were doing you a favour by showing up for work. Other airlines such as emirates, ethiad, virgin Australia all make a person feel welcome with great attention to detail international flight from Europe to the US. I will never fly air Europa again as I feel they are dishonest. The charge for the headphones is ridiculous when the entertainment is limited (most tv series will have one episode and the shows are old) The food was sub par. The sandwich with one sliver of ham was pathetic and the main meal was lacking with only chicken and rice, a small desert, no fruit/ salad and or crackers with cheese which is the norm on international flights."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Some of the crew was very rude, food was bad forca 9 hr flight!!!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice to my family, and they went through extra effort to take care of us. I would be happy to fly this airline again."
Cons: "My wife’s bag was damaged during handling, but I am not sure that is the fault of Air Europa, perhaps the airport personnel in Miami or Madrid."

Pros: "People and new plane"
Cons: "We have to take a bust to catch the plane. It ya to drive for ages! We left about 40mins later than schedulled."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarded flight and then let us sitting on the tarmac for ninety minutes with no water or air conditioning.Once flight under way no food available.DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE!!!!"

Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Ahead of schedule out and inbound."
Cons: "Paid for wifi didn't work for me."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The plane had no entertainment inflight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I am a skyteam member and have platinum status with delta and prior to leaving for my trip I had contacted air europa with my skymiles number and was told baggage was included. Upon arrival to airport my status was ignored and I was refused when asked to speak with a manager. I ended up having to pay 60 euros in baggage fees and then was not allowed to board as sky priority despite showing the airline my status."

Cons: "Sat sweltering on tarmac with doors open. All passengers sweating"

Pros: "....."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for a long flight. There was also no air circulation so it was extremely hot. The fact that we had to pay for internet is ridiculous. How much more money are these airlines trying to pump out of us? I will not be flying with air europa in the future."

Cons: "Delayed, both ways"

Pros: "Two meals and some in-flight entertainment. Not too bad. You can order a special meal (such as vegetarian) by calling the service center, and it's served first."
Cons: "Red-eye flight, econ seat uncomfortable for sleeping. Fewer entertainment options than other airlines"

Cons: "Food was ok"

Pros: "Price was very good. That's a big plus."

Pros: "Food is poor , pasta have not taste n the portion not enoug"

Pros: "None"

Pros: "I liked the price. Free eine. Dinner ok"
Cons: "My bag was lost, took 3 days to get. And tad checked it. Not sure why, but didn't like that."

Pros: "Everything worked reliably (with one exception). The flights actually arrived earlier than expected. A plus."
Cons: "The audio in the in-flight entertainment system did not work (at all). A minor annoyance overall, since you usually sleep on overnight flights anyway."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and one started bording it when ok."
Cons: "It was delayed, as normally, 45 mins this time. Awful experience going through security in CDG I would avoid that airport at all cost. Randomly making you wait luggage before security, with add extra 30 mins to the security processes, not sympathy of staff even if flight people may miss their flight."

Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Air Europa lost my bag for 6 days. I picked it up at the airport finally the 7th day of my trip. They found it on day 3 but took 4 entire days to ship it from Boston. Awful. We were also delayed 3 hours in Madrid with no compensation, we got a "snack" voucher that totaled $5. It was terrible and I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "The boarding was easy. Having a blanket and pillow at my seat."
Cons: "The delay and short time between flights to get to gate and get through customs. Having no in flight entertainment for a 7.5 hour flight. There was not a vegetarian snack option for my daughter."

Pros: "The flight was easy to board when it was time. We left and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was only one person initially checking people in. Then when there was a second person, she was going to make us move to the end of the other line after waiting 30 minutes. She did end up taking us, but it was only after conceding that."

Cons: "They changed my flight by 24 hours, without ever sending a clear email telling me so. I missed my business class flight and had to book another crooks."

Pros: "The prive was ok"
Cons: "Late, disorganized boarding, group pf adolesccentes traveling behind me were very rowdy and on an early morning flight they have to be asked by the flight personnel to be respectful to the other passengers"

Cons: "As my connecting flight was late due to the check-in debacle, I had very little time to make it to this flight. After running I made it, and my assigned seat had a broken chair! In fact the whole thing, including the newspaper holder and the screen were broken. The flight attendant was not shocked by this at all, simply suggested to use the seat next to me if no one was using it. The entertainment on these flights is awful! Only a few very old movies, and you have to pay 3 euros for the head phones. The planes they have are quite old and broken all around."

Cons: "Boarding delay"

Pros: "Great price to value ratio, attentive crew, good food. Wifi available."
Cons: "Older panes with no phone jack charging options. What's the use of Wifi if your battery runs low or dies. They have charging ports in Business Class. I don't remember the last time I was on a plane with at least phone charging ports."

Pros: "Price was great, flight crew very attentive, even the food was good."
Cons: "The seats didn't have a port to charge phones. Older planes with antiquated tech. Monitors on back of seats were also outdated. Plane was late leaving Madrid."

Pros: "Crew inside"
Cons: "Airport gate unprepared for wheel chairs and strollers. No elevator in gate area."

Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding attendant was lacking communication skills. Crew was fine, but I asked for a sleeping mask and although the flight attendant said he'd see to help me, he never returned. Not even to say, he didn't couldn't help me. Food (I only ate breakfast) was less than appealing. Movies were all old. Seat was so slim, every time we touched our tv or pocket, the passenger in the front seat was upset."

Cons: "We did not receive any beverage drinks during flight. Only the first 10 or 15 rows received this service. :("

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable. The Airbus planes are fantastic."
Cons: "I was squeezed in the middle of a row. If I was able to check in ahead of time I would choose a better place to start with. The check in just didn't work!"

Pros: "One of the best international flights I have taken. Comfortable (as much as a plane can be for 9 hours), good food and service, lots of free movie options."
