Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Pros: "Good staff and service"
Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."
Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Pros: "I am always glad to see a working USB port for charging mobile devices on these 12+ hour flights and was not disappointed here. The list of movies was long. Also positive was the tallest headrest I have experienced in coach."
Cons: "The seat are thinly padded and felt close together, making the already long flight feel even more fatiguing."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Cleanliness"
Cons: "The flight crew had no control over the passengers on this flight! Kids running around when the seat belt sign on, called fro assistance TWICE and no one came to my seat and I held my trash for a whole hour and not ONE person stopped by to get it from me!"
Cons: "Dirty old plane"
Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."
Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."
Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Cons: "Flight to Doha was great! Enthused crew and Ey also kept ensuring bathrooms were clean. On way from Doha to Chicago it was disgusting"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seat in front of me was occupied by an adult who kept bouncing and reclining seats. The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."
Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"
Pros: "The food on the way back to the United States was excellent. The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The good on the way to Cape Town was deplorable. Some of the seat back entertainment centers were malfunctioning while trying to watch movies. They would stop and move forward of their own accord."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very much cushion for your bottom, especially for a 15 hour flight. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded on the flight. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and we definitely didn't go hungry! Tons of new movie options. My husband and I were definitely able to catch up."
Cons: "We were seated in the back of the airplane, where a lot over people hovered for the washrooms, and boarding off the plane took longer. But, not much that could have been done about that!"
"Entertainment screen did not work (that was true for half the passengers). Toilets were not cleaned. Seats were broken. Tray tables were broken. DO NOT FLY AIR INDIA"
Pros: "Crew was little helpful and nice ."
Cons: "1. Entertainment screen should be working in 15 hour flight. 2. Food tasted like it was rotten. 3. Boarding took forever 4. Plane had a bad smell inside the Cabin ."
Pros: "Food and crew was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment need to be improved with touch screen equipment."
Cons: "can't help"
Cons: "old aircraft. entertainment system was old. Couldn't charge my phone. flight attendants weren't responsive to my call."
Cons: "Everything Sets, lights, bathroom, food, service, Lots of maintenance issues"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seats suck. Mine was not even working. Had to call the crew 4-5 times to recline and upright."
Cons: "No wifi, no entertainment, bad seats."
Cons: "Clean bathroom"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Better movie choices"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and service was good."
Cons: "Flight was 5 hours longer than anticipated due to Pakistan closing their air space. Communication of this from airline was poor. Older plane -- entertainment system not working well."
Cons: "For my return journey I had to contact the airlines for change of date. It was a nightmare experience. Each time I called, I had to spend minimum of 45/60 minutes on hold while I was repeatedly pushed to new agents. This might be the only airline which would require an international passenger to visit the booking office personally to claim exemptions from date change penalty. ( my mother passed away and I wanted exemption because of bereavement)And to top it, no one knew the location of the booking office..."
Cons: "Entertainment system and even the reading lights did not work for the entire 15 hr flight duration."
Pros: "Nothing about service"
Cons: "Bad hygiene Poor taste of food"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful to keep the baggage in cabin. She said it is not my duty. The movies are all 10 years old and none of South Indian movies updated. Bathrooms smell awful."
Pros: "Flight was delayed over 12 hours and crew was highly disorganized and unprofessional, including failing to communicate with passengers about when the flight was rescheduled"
Cons: "We took the direct flight from chicago to Delhi and it was horrible. The flight is over 15 hours and the seats are a slight upgrade from cardboard. The trays were all broken and the media systems worked about half of the time. The air vent was full of black mold and I was cut by a broken seat. The staff at the check in desk, gate and on board were all rude. Beverage service was only offered once the entire flight. I would strongly urge anyone needing to get to Delhi to not fly air India or this specific flight."
Pros: "Staff was doing their job dutifully! Arrival at Chicago quite convenient."
Cons: "Unless AirIndia improves it’s carrier it’s question of time! >50% TVs were nonfunctional! Seat covers are torn at places! Food just ok but ordinary! Overall, one is unimpressed!"
Cons: "1. Entertainment box didn’t work and no response from crew. 2. No pillows and when asked for one, reply was there are no pillows. 3. No one comes with water and No water kept in the intermediate stations. 4. Overall, a horrible experience."
Cons: "They gave seat to 6 to 9 year kid separate from parents. No idea how someone can give a seat to child without any adult next to him. I confirmed seat online on air India site. On the boarding they gave seats in separate row to each family member including kids. I saw there are lots of other people facing same issue. Boarding member are not willing to help until I made a big issue."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and nice..loved them. The timely takeoff and arrival adds to the charm. Will fly again.."
Cons: "As I entered the plane it smells putrid...actually it stinks of urine. The wear and tear worried me..the upholstery was taped together. This is the only direct flight so I am forced to fly on it."
Pros: "Food was really bad, tv wasn't working, after requesting multiple times air hostess reboot it but wasn't working, I requested sit next to my mother due to she required assistance, we didn't got proper sit, we made reservations early so we can appropriate sit and at least sit next to each other. So 15 hr journey become so horrible. Might be not prefer this flight any more."
Cons: "Food was not cleared in a timely matter. The quality of food was not good, in fact one breakfast I got the eggs were so severely overcooked that they were not edible."
Pros: "Overall service was good by some flight crew members."
Cons: "Some passengers who were not cooperative, rude and less place to go use restrooms in flight."
Cons: "This was one of my worst experience flying with Air India. Stating from boarding to end of journey nothing impressed me to chose Air India again in the future."
Pros: "Meals served on time, courtesy of crew appreciated; being escorted to gate before takeoff due to delay of earlier flight"
Cons: "Seat near the toilet, so constant crowding. Shd have better entertainment- more selection of movies, Indian and English. Would have appreciated being taken in the electrical buggy, being a senior citizen, especially where the time factor was important."
Pros: "Being non stop between USA and Delhi was the reason I chose air India. I flew AI 5 years ago and it was much better. Food was good and it was on time both while going to India and coming back to USA. ."
Cons: "Plane decore inside on both flights was broken where I was sitting. While going to India my arm rest was broken that it’s top had come off. No one bothered to repair. Person next to me, his entertainment system was broken. While coming back my entertainment system was broken. 14 hours no movies. Luckily I had my iPod and book to read. Seats cushion could use a replacement and air hostess could use a smile. She was as if someone forced her to work on that flight. She was working hard but never smiled or cared for any compliments. I think it was my last flight with AI till some drastic changes are made in leadership."
Cons: "I did not like that during web check in it did not show me where the washrooms are located, and i ended up have seats by washroom, which ruined my trip. The seat that I had 38C made a noise as soon as someone flushed. This was annoying."
Pros: "Despite the plane not taking off on time, we were able to arrive per schedule. Flight crew was good. Helped as necessary. Will get you there on time. Good legroom!"
Cons: "I booked round trip, on the first leg from Chicago to Delhi, airplane was dirty, seats didnt recline, meals were not provided , bathroom was shut out saying it's defective in Chicago itself, overhead lights wouldn't work. I felt quite humiliated for the price I paid."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the food was good!"
Cons: "Baggage handling! The baggage was damaged beyond repair and still the procedure calls for getting a formal quote for repair! If they are asking for a quote in the US, they might as well have a recommendation on the shop where repair or a formal quote can get done!"
Cons: "Starting from check in till landing everything was poor. No regard for senior citizens. Poor food quality. Pathetic inflight service and bad attitude from staff. No one cared. Was suppose to arrange for wheelchair but had to carry my own luggage n walk Totally useless. No wonder they are rated as bottom airline in ratings."
Pros: "Needed more frequency of food and juice"
Cons: "There was a technical snag and delayed the flight by 2.30 hrs. Reached late by that much time. It was bad"
Cons: "The fruits served was bad and got spoiled. No proper response from the cabin team"
Cons: "The vegetarian menu was boring. A horrid sandwich, terrible croissants, dry breadrolls, spoiled fruit and brown lettuce. No Cabin crew available except during take off and landing and meal service. They were all hidden in the rear of the plane. No beverages or even water offered except during beverage service. No Wi-Fi, wired remote control in each seat defective. Touch screen not working. Aged upholstery and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Gave 1 star since there was nothing less than that for crew and entertainment"
Cons: "The very least thing you would expect on international travel is to kill your time watching movies or something on the screen in front of you especially when you travel 13+ hours non-stop. My screen wouldn't even start and when informed the crew multiple times all got is "ok" and nobody even bothered to comeback and check( even after pressing the flight attendant button multiple times). Trip felt very exhausting since all you can do is close your eyes and pretend you sleep or stare at seat in front of you. I am sure there are many broken systems and it may be ok for people who sleep through out their flight but such a shame that air India doesn't bother to check and fix their systems. Very disappointed since this is not the first time it happened, also happened on my way to India and the response I got from flight attendant is" there are hundred of seats empty"meaning to say go find a working screen myself. When you spend so much money to travel least you would expect is basic things and minimal courtesy. Somebody needs to fix their systems and train the crew better. Very disappointed that Air India didn't even bother to correct the issues they knew that were already at fault."
Cons: "Cooperation by cruse members"
Cons: "Terrible cabin service (low cleanliness; service not easily available; dirty food trays in the aisle not picked up for hours) Noisy cabin (very loud passengers)"
Pros: "Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment system for my seat and several other people did not work. Reading light did not work. I had to read a book for a 15 hour flight using a flashlight! Restrooms were locked up mid-flight as 2 of them stopped working. Seat was hard. Aircraft was old and creaky."
Pros: "Food was okay not that great this time. Flight attendant was nice & helpful. Media operations & entertainment was good."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not cleaned. Customers messed them up and there was flood in the bathroom which was not cleaned."
Pros: "They got me home in one piece"
Cons: "Crew allowed all the passengers to board and then announced a technical problem that took 2 hours to fix. Making people sit another two hours (in the middle of the night) before a 16-hour flight is ridiculous. Also as I've previously experienced on Air India, the bathrooms are inadequately supplied and literally held together with tape and stickers, when they are working at all."
Pros: "Like: (1) Food (2) Service"
Cons: "Things can be improved; (1) Boarding Procedures - you should not board 300 passengers at the same time on a narrow passage to board. (2) Liquor was served 45 minutes before landing on a 15 hour flight from New Delhi to Chicago. (3) Aircraft "BIHAR" air condition was not working back of the plane on my flight from Chicago to New Delhi."
Pros: "The Amritsar to New Delhi flight was not on time while going there or coming back The flight itself is short and sweet"
Cons: "The Amritsar to New Delhi flight was not on time while going there or coming back"
Cons: "On the flight from Chicago to Delhi, the entertainment center was not working. Extremely unhappy. How can one spend 14 hrs ? This is a recurring problem with Air India"
Pros: "Frequency of Food Supply should be increased"
Cons: "Child luggage weight should be increased"
Pros: "Nothing that I could remember"
Cons: "Tv don't work, bad food. Un friendly crew"
Cons: "Bad food, entertainment screens don't work. Crew was no help"
Cons: "Seat 52E was broken. I had to pad the exposed metal bar with blankets and sit on it for 15 hours. It has given me back ache."
Pros: "They left our baggage en Delhi and we arrived to Kathmandu with nothing but our handbags. Hope today they bring them to the hotel or we'll have trouble"
Pros: "The only good thing is that this is a direct flight! - The airline host/hostess staff were okay to deal with - The boarding process was okay too, similar to other airlines - The Delhi airport that we flew out of is a major improvement over the past ones"
Cons: "1. The comfort and ambiance is poor. The plastic on tray tables on my seat was broken and dirty. 2 The seat cushion is thin and feels like sitting directly on a board. I had a pain my back. Not sure of why can such a major airline out of India not try to spend back a little money to improve the comfort. 3. The space was also a pain point, when you are travelling such a long leg of flight, a little bit more space is always helpful... I think this airline has the least space among the ones I traveled with. 4. India is a country of amazing culinary experience and the food here was worse than the hostel. THIS PART WAS JUST A SHAME!"
