Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people.

Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Cons: "Need good wheel chair service."
Pros: "All around great airline. Comfortable for super long flights and completely accommodating."
Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."

Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."
Pros: "On board crew are excellent."
Cons: "Ground staff requires training specifically on communication related to boarding. Travelers were confused as to what zone is boarding at a given time as there were no announcements. Pathetic boarding process."
Pros: "No flight No refund"
Pros: "My family was happy with the service provided by Qatar airline."
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

Pros: "Cabin crew courtesy."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
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: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."
Cons: "They knew we would never make the connection flight and still they told us it will be fine after adding a stop which changes the schedules. When we arrived the connection plane was still there but we were never registered on it. I will ask for compensations even if I have to take a lawyer."

Cons: "We waited nearly TWO hours in line to check in our unaccompanied minors."

Pros: "I liked that we flew directly into Palm Springs, which is my local airport."
Cons: "I didn't like how tight the seating spaces were. I'm a thin, small person and I was not comfortable. I can't imagine how a taller or heavier person could be accommodated comfortably. I never thought I'd say this ... but I've now decided I prefer taking the train because domestic air travel is just too confining!"
Pros: "The Houston United Gate for this flight was very nice. The staff were very professional and courteous."
Pros: "We arrived safely at PDX"
Cons: "We left 3 hrs late, arrived very late at night, I did not get home until 2 a.m. There was no apology. There were no plugs for computers in the back of the plane and I got stuck between a fat person to my left and a fat person in front of me who leaned their seat back as far as possible. It was hideous."
Pros: "Courteous crew, choice of snacks, on time"
Cons: "Basic Economy tickets are a joke. They are no savings for customers just added restrictions and an overall unenjoyable flight experience as you are being surveillanced by every United associate to ensure you pay for a carry on bag. United and Spirit airlines are now one in the same. United hasn’t suddenly introduced lower fares than before, but rather is reducing the benefits that come with the most basic fares."
Pros: "Wasn't dragged off flight."
Cons: "Bathrooms so small you can't even turn around. And I'm 5'7", 135lbs!!"

Pros: "Will never use united."
Cons: "Delayed because of baggage not being ready for flight."
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice"
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day cost was rediculus united wanted an additional amount equal to the cost of the whole round trip not very helpful Were TSA approved going but not returning At 84 did not appreciate this. Will not fly United again if I have a choise"
Cons: "Ron working the check in desk at United gate B67 to B79 was extremely rude, condescending and combative. I was appealed & offended by him and the way he spoke to me. I also observed his poor treatment of other passengers I will not longer use United Airlines for my flight needs"
Pros: "Updates from pilots Airbourne"
Cons: "The gate told us it was a late arriving aircraft but that flight wasn't late.. it was a negative swap and there was no way for the inbound crew and aircraft to be on time.. just tell the truth.. feet were freezing"
Cons: "Short flight everything was fine"
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and very early for arrival."
Cons: "Boarding agents and cabin crew didn't convey a friendly tone. Multiple announcements made about keeping the boarding lanes clear and roller bags needing to be checked though some space in the overheads remained available. A full flight in the same plane from Denver seems to have plenty of overhead space, but a full plane leaving Atlanta runs out early?"
Cons: "Pilot landed us very hard in good weather."
Pros: "Finally a United flight that left on time and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The entire United experience left me wanting something, anything from this airline. Unfortunately the only thing they will get from me is no more chances for service recovery. They failed miserably!"
Pros: "Very good! Very nice and friendly employees!"
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
Pros: "had a 4 hour delay due to plane issue. staff was helpful though, kept passengers up to date, and allowed us to deboard when the wait was 2.5hrs+ and go back to the gate for snacks."
Pros: "We boarded in record time and took off in record time. The landing was so smooth I hardly noticed it. Perfection!"
Cons: "Anything I didn't like is typical plane stuff - small cramped seats, one cup of soda instead of the entire can, etc. Nothing unusual!"
Cons: "they didn't serve us, not even water. Also they tried to land once and they could not and then they took us back and retried. Not an explanation or anything.. I believe that the pilots didn't know what they were doing.... I fly frequently but this is one of the worst experience, plus have in mind that you go to Palm Springs to enjoy and relax not to die.., If you have turbulence least announce the passengers and prepare them."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "We were delayed by the rain/lighting 3 times so they gave everyone free access to direct tv"
Cons: "Choice of snacks"
Pros: "Nice crew, good flight."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, short flight so not big issue"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so I had an entire row"
Cons: "I asked a staff member a question about my checked luggage and I felt like he blew me off. No big deal though."
Pros: "Delayed 3 hours. Rerouted to the wrong airport. But worst of all was the seats. Awful. Don't recline, no padding. Worst ever."
Cons: "Seats in economy are always short on the knees. Paying $25 for checked bag is way out of line. Free is better, but $10 max would be more than enough since fuel charges have gone way down for all air lines."
