Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."

Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you.

The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"

Pros: "There was nothing worth liking . Plane was dirty in side . Tray tables were broken. Used pillows without hygiene sealed bags. Toilets were missing basic supplies."

Pros: "Upgraded seats"
Cons: "Same Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable.

Cons: "Poor leg room, very tough for a tall guy"

Pros: "keep it up"

Pros: "Need more movie selection on classic"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cabin crew was poor in English communication skill. I remain skeptical how the cabin crew could effectively communicate to passengers in the case of an in-flight or ground emergency. Pillow covers were filthy. There were body fluid stains and long hairs stuck to the covers. I went through and rejected four of them. Inflight service was good but there was an unwritten Cathay Pacific rule that I was not aware of.........each passenger is restricted to two alcohol beverage drinks in any one hour period."

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Thin blankets was not enough to bear the cold."

Cons: "Not enough bathrooms"

Cons: "The missed flight to SFO was replaced by another flight to LAX next day and then from LAX to SFO via United as domestic flight. This is horrible experience since we had to check out all luggages, go through custom and then check in the bags again with all weighing problems. The worse is that to go from International terminal to United domestic counter, we had to pull the luggages along the curb from one end of the airport to the other side of it. We will never take this option again"

Cons: "seat wasn't the best for my back even reclined."

Pros: "Plane was newer & clean. Cabin crew was helpful & nice with my dad transferring from wheel chair to the plane"
