Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I had a cheap ticket and expected much less, but food was great, crew was creat, boarding was easy."

Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Pros: "Very pleasant and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive & met all my expectations."
Pros: "Empty plane."
Cons: "Service very reactive, particularly with so few passengers."
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Pros: "The food and crew were great"
Cons: "Older plane the tv panels were faded"
Pros: "The crews are very friendly and seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "There nothing could have been better cause everything is perfect"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
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: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines has amazing service! And they have free internet!"
Cons: "The films are all sensored. And the free internet is only for 30 minutes."
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Cons: "arrived late, causing connection stress"
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"

Pros: "Overall better than most of domestic US or Korean national airline in terms of food and service."

Pros: "Stopover in Doha fun. The people are so friendly."
Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed.

Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"
Cons: "same remark : Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "Like your six seats in a business class row compared to Emirates, Air India and very awkward seats of Etihad. Qatar business class staff also tad better than others."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "All the services were excellent. From the checking-in to the boarding. The flight crew could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite. Food was great on board."
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price. Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Pros: "We liked how attentive your crew members were"
Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "Qatar airways equipment very good."
Pros: "Food and entertainment on board was good"
Cons: "They delayed boarding by over 30 mins (without any notices on any screens), and then kept us on the flight for another 30 mins after doors shut before pushing back from the gate. Overall flight was delayed over an hour. The pilot tried to make up the time on the way, and we had a connection officially scheduled for 45 mins layover. We requested the crew if we could disembark earlier but she said no. We missed our connection."
Cons: "Again the menu wasnt good. Also as the plane was smaller the economy was a little claustrophobic"
Pros: "The head flight attendant in the economy cabin was nice, after a bit."
Cons: "My entertainment system stopped working and all they could offer me was something farther back in the cabin. As a Gold privilege member, I choose to sit at the front of the cabin, and yet the entertainment system was unavailable. I wish Qatar Airways could compensate me for my unfavorable experience."
Pros: "Flights out of and to Philadelphia cuts out the whole traveling to and from NY or DC. This is a big plus for me since I live in Delaware."
Pros: "Very clean and excellent service."
Cons: "Doha airport transfer was a great distance and trams between gates were not well marked for handicapped or elderly."
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with my other flight"
Pros: "The check in process was very nice and smooth. The staff was so nice and friendly. Flight attendants were very nice too."
Cons: "The seats are just too squished. For a ten hour flight, it was SO uncomfortable."
Cons: "Main meal was mediocre, other food better"
Cons: "Try to be on time!"
Cons: "Plane was late. Connection in Chicago was the worst"
Pros: "They had the decency to book a hotel after delaying the flight so long it made many people miss their connecting flight."
Cons: "Being more considerate to the customers and not changing gates last minutes or delaying the flight an hour before take off. Also not sending ones luggage on a later flight then having to wait to pick it up and find out it never arrived after you go speak to costumer service. Worst service ever!"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Being able to upgrade to business or first from app"
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Pros: "Crew was not friendly and gathered in the rear galley complaining about their job and customers. The seat was not comfortable at all."
Cons: "Most everything could have been better. All phases were far below average."
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Cons: "Crew was cold and rude"
Pros: "I flew business class for this trip and loved the leg room!! Having frequently flown coach class on these overseas flights, I have a hard time folding my long legs into the cramped seats and arriving rested and in good humor. I can say unequivocally that the flight attendants give you much more personalized attention in business class. I didn't have to, but I preordered my meals and that info was registered, and that way I got what I wanted. I also made use of the Admirals Clubs during layovers."
Pros: "The rest was as usual"
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "USB plug didn't work. Could not charge phone. Touch screen on TV didn't work well."
Pros: "Personal screen with all recent movies at no charge, my flight was almost 8 hours and I received four times meals and snacks"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were very good. It made traveling with children easier."
Cons: "The crew. It seems that the US crew has gotten used to treating customers like animals and giving treats to deplane or calling security is a norm now. They seem to forget that they are working in a service industry. On our flight which was international and long they had quarantined the entire back rows for themselves and one of the bathrooms was also for their use only. In addition they had two choices for the meal they served Chicken and Pasta and they mentioned to customers that they had run out of Chicken. One of the passengers in our group of seven could not eat pasta as she had dietary restrictions after surgery and they told her too bad and she should have ordered a special meal. When she spoke up she was threatened with security. This person is a respected physician in her community and understands the service industry well. The worse part is the crew then proceeded to eat chicken dinners right behind her seat and continued to talk rudely about her. They had not run out of chicken meals just kept them for themselves. It seems American Airlines spends lots of advertising dollars about choosing to fly with them but is forgetting to train their staff about being nice to passengers."
Cons: "lots of branding stuff-watching any video had you go through 3 minutes of commercials. I must have watched the same commercials over 20 times."
Pros: "Loved the BRAND NEW airplane!!"
Cons: "Food is so fatty. this is 2018, we should be having healthier choices."
Pros: "Every thing was find.."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected.."
Pros: "The comfort..the movies."
Cons: "No outlets. Poor options for vegetarians"
Pros: "Food & inflight entertaiment decent."
Cons: "Gate agent claiming carry on bag ro large. Used it 30+ as a carryon with our difficulty. It is 14”x22”. If the concern was too many bages dont bs pasengers about reason they are asked to to check bag."
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating to handling my wheelchair and helping me to my seat most uncomfortable seats I have ever used. My neck was sore before we even took off."
Pros: "The pasta offered at lunch was tasty."
Cons: "The snack which was described as pizza had a really bad taste and this offering should be discontinued and something that tastes better should be offered."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "seating was uncomfortible"
Pros: "The food was great! The entertainment was great! I had enough space!"
Pros: "Newest aircraft, great customer service"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Crew, food, and entertainment were terrible. If I pay for british airways, I should get it. American airlines is trash, and all of the airlines in the US, should take notes from every other airline. Air travel In the US has become the bus station of the 21st century. I shouldn't be paying this much to bad business just because there isn't an alternative."
Cons: "Completely ignored for beverage service"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "I did not board the plan. I had to buy an additional ticket because I had an emergency and it was going to be over 1,000$ to change the date for me to come back"
Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."
Cons: "I paid premium price for comfort and to be treated at least nice! In the business cabinet! Other than the seat which by the way mine was broken so I couldn't get to the position I'm the most comfortable, everything else I could have gotten in the economy seat. Crew was not welcoming, the had big attitudes as they were doing me favors! Which they are not! And they didn't check at me at all. Fly got delayed more than 2 hours didn't offer more drinks or snacks! Food was horrible so I was very hungry since I couldn't eat it! And the snacks were available at the back much later but when I went to check it out almost everything was gone! Other airlines come to offer you snacks! AA did not and the make me feel like an intruder when I went to check the empty snacks trays! Only the package food was still available. Horrible service, mean big headed crew! It's is simple! Be nice and make an effort! Especially for the people that actually is there paying the premium!"
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Also rearranging our seats so that we could sit next to our 2 year old daughter was very helpful."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class and it was wonderful"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "I flew coach for the first time in a year, and I was shocked at how poor the service was. Additionally, the aircraft was not maintained: broken sinks in the bathroom / most of the video entertainment was broken in Premium Economy Class. I had to cross the Atlantic for 9 hours with no movies to distract me. I'm shocked that the business class crew still treat coach passengers with disrespect as if they are second class citizens."
Cons: "The passport check point was horrendouslyorganized as was boarding in Barcelona. My vegetarian sandwich served for lunch was nothing more than Dry bread, two cucumbers and a piece of iceberg lettuce- just awful."
Pros: "For the price I got my ticket for. This was a good deal. I paid extra to upgrade to main cabin extra but well worth it."
Cons: "Got food and drinks and beer at nomadditional cost"
Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Cons: "Crew: One was swearing at take off, and another was aggressive with getting my tray table down although I told her I didn't want it down because I already had blankets on me and wanted to relax. I didn't need a tray table forced out on me for a drink I could care less about when I'd rather be sleeping on a long flight. The tray table was also dirty - so dirty that the crew member used a napkin to pull it out. Gross. Comfort: Ruined by the rude staff and the dirty tray table that was forced on me. Water was coming out of the wall. Both bathrooms didn't have soap dispensers (not even empty ones - they never had any out to start with), and by the time I went both were out of toilet paper and hand napkins. Food: Didn't touch it because of how disgusted I was at the flight by this time. Entertainment: Something is better than nothing."
Cons: "Could not understand the boarding instructions-PA system and speaker not good"
Cons: "Only a few options as far as tv and movies"
Pros: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "The touchscreen on the plane was awful, 10 touches to make it work at least."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
