So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Cons: "N/A"

Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."

Cons: "The seat was narrow and after 9 hours, not comfortable... Normal for economy though"

Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."

Cons: "No food available only drinks"

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"

Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."

Cons: "Flight delayed, so missed connecting flight and stuck in Qatar for 13 hours on top of a 22 hour regular flight schedule"

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."

Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"

Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"

Pros: "On screen entertainment"

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

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Cons: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("

Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"

Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"

Cons: "Seats are too small"

Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"

Pros: "The service and the food were amazing!"

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."

Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."

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: "Their food and crew was good."
Cons: "Seats are very small now and the entainment system was all messed up that day for the whole plane. We were trying to watch something else and system was playing something else."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."

Pros: "Mi única incomodidad es que el vuelo iba repleto y fue imposible dormir en ese mínimo espacio de un asiento. Pero eso no es culpa de ellos, supongo..."

Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"

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: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "The crew we're good"

Pros: "the seats in couch wwere the narrowest we have experienced! Very uncomfortable and difficult to get out of"
Cons: "Better seats and the bathrooms were incredibly small. some of the lights did not work"

Cons: "Emirates allowed only 1 suitcase on return flight,going jfk -khi it was 2 pieces on return khi-jfk only one which i didn't know and never heard....how can i complain to Emirates please send me info..thanks"

Pros: "Good performance of ground staff in kabul"
Cons: "On time flight not delay"

Cons: "This company í overrated. Obvious lack of organization in the boarding process that led to a late departure. Not a sympathetic crew, which had to be reminded the protocols (upright seats before take off) while being inflexible on other things. Chaotic food service. Average entertainment."

Pros: "Service on plane good friendly staff and helpfull"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "You don’t need to have seats next to lavatory. The area was stinking even before the plane took off."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."

Pros: "Efficient and very friendly cabin staff. Captain and team kept us informed of flight progression at reasonable intervals."
Cons: "Some slight delay in clearing up some catering equipment."

Pros: "Food, staff, flight"
Cons: "Cabin luggage limit, too long layover"

Pros: "The ICE entertainment"
Cons: "The leg room is a bit small"

Pros: "Hospitality, service, crew and everything was well"

Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"

Pros: "Like the cabin crew... comfortable seat in the business class"

Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"

Pros: "One of the best economy flights I've taken."

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"

Pros: "Flew business class. Nice lounge at ktm, better than I expected for Yangon. Fast checkin, good service and very efficient. Seats comfy. Arrived early to Dubai."

Cons: "Seats are less spacious for me since I’m 6 feet tall"

Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."

Pros: "A380 economy cabin, excellent legroom for a 6"2 bloke like me. Seat was wide enough too. Really good food and a cracking entertainment system. Happily fly them again."

Cons: "I understand that the cabin crew’s job focus is not to serve drinks and food to passengers. However, I would’ve expected well-mannered employees from Emirates. I was on an aisle seat, a steward bumped on my arm quite roughly and he merely continued walking. Not even a word was said."

Pros: "Drinks.."
Cons: "No hotel accommodation given by Emirate"

Pros: "enjoyes my trip"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "i like the cabin crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."

Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Seat assignment and boarding process"

Pros: "We love Emarites Airlines Service"
Cons: "When boardiing at Dubai entry used one gate with steps this was a minor inconvenience wth the friendly helpful assistance of the flight attendants."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment selection on board, as well as the food. It was quite tasty and fresh."
Cons: "The crew were not very responsive to passengers' requests. I wanted to have some water, and called for one of the cabin crew, but they didn't bother to answer."

Pros: "Just the check in"
Cons: "was travelling with a 1 yr old. And it was really difficult. She was a bit sick. At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."

Cons: "Before the flight landed and before an announcement was made to bring seats upright, I was repeatedly poked by a crew member to wake up. This was not necessary since we were not close to landing. Very rude and uncomfortable."

Pros: "As commented above."
Cons: "As commented above."

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"

Cons: "drinks not offered during first two hours of flight"

Pros: "Crew members including. Ground staff were good. Food & Entertainment nice."
Cons: "At Dubai experience was not good. They kept our Boarding pass with them only. Could not converse with us."

Pros: "Exceptional crew"
Cons: "My last leg, Dubai to Geneva was not booked as code share with Quantas but, by Quantas, as Emerates directly. This meant that I got no milage credit for the flight. Grrrr."

Pros: "I like the selection of movies."
Cons: "The check-in and gate staff were trying to weigh our carry-ons and make us adjust things when ultimately does it matter how much weight I can carry on the flight? What if I gained 20 pounds since I booked my ticket. Will I be charged? Seriously, if it's that big of a deal, there should be a limit on weight of the person plus their carry-ons. Thin people should not be hassled! I am saving a hundred or so pounds by not weighing so much! Stop hassling us for carry-ons!"

Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse. No kit was given which includes brush, paste, eye covering band. Last time I travelled from Boston to Dubai the food was completely frozen and now this!"

Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Comfort and space inside aircraft is excellent, very good entertaiment and movies"
Cons: "Some stewardesses were in a bad mood and responded badly to passengers"

Pros: "Everything was great. Crews were nice and helpful. Flight was early which was very helpful. Our luggage # was displayed on our screen efficiently."

Pros: "Food and staff service"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"

Cons: "Was not offered a drink in first class prior to take off."

Cons: "Almost 3 hours delayed"

Pros: "Great crew serving God beverages and meals. The was a variety of Entertainment from which to choose."

Pros: "There is Nothing that like"
Cons: "If you allowed me to get in this flight everything would've been fine.?"

Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"

Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "Wi-fi sucks"

Pros: "Complimentary beverages."
Cons: "Chicken and pasta for dinner"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"

Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"

Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Pros: "Easy boarding nice clean and spacious, I am tall so it is sometimes difficult to have enough space in aricraft. Staff was very nice, polite and helpfull during the long 12h flight, very nice job indeed!"

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."

Pros: "Staff and equipment"
Cons: "Early to arrive but gate not ready so we lost our edge"

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Pros: "Seat back movies Staff was attentive and patient with my sick teen daughter."
Cons: "Old plane with no seat back entertainment on one leg of journey."

Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"

Pros: "Being on time."

Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."

Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."

Cons: "The tsa is worthless"

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."

Pros: "The plane was not very full and I was selected to move be from row 30 to row 16. All seats in that row were empty. That was very nice."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."

Pros: "Quick trip and relaxing --- no high way traffic issues, accidents or construction hold ups."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I did not like."

Pros: "Laura, who checked us in was extraordinarily great."

Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."

Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"

Pros: "We were delayed a bit out of Shanghai but still arrived in Los Angeles on-time (very slightly early) which was nice. well done."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, with staff members holding signs creating arbitrary waiting areas for each of the boarding zones. If this is the boarding process, maybe something more structured can be implemented, otherwise people just end up everywhere. The seat back entertainment on this 777-200 suffered from the most capricious touch-screens ever. I would frequently tap a control on the screen only to have a control at the far corner of the screen be "pressed" instead. Annoying."

Pros: "I liked the price of the ticket."
Cons: "In comparison to Korean Air, which I often use for overseas travel, Delta doesn't quite measure up. The overall performance and professionalism is lower."
