Pros: "Everything is excellent"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive to passengers and genuinely nice."

Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Really helpful people."
Cons: "Seats are so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"

Pros: "Customer service and food."

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Pros: "The plane was virtually empty and the service was good."
Cons: "The plane from Doha to Dar was infinitely less nice than the plane from New York to Doha. It was borderline offensively unequal."

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."

Pros: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."

Pros: "The 17hr flight went relatively quickly. Much faster than expected."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "Flew from Frankfurt to Doha in Business 1A. Being a gold member and buz class received extra attention and the flight supervisor did a commendable job."
Cons: "Nothing as such"

Cons: "A little crowded but still great service."

Cons: "The layover was too long"

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Cons: "Food choices could be better."

Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."

Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"

Pillow, blanket and pajamas supplied were all nice quality. Restrooms kept spotless through a very long flight. Best business class I have experienced on any airline."
Cons: "The one glitch was the entertainment system, which froze several times and needed to be re-booted."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I think in plain should serve international food not only Indian spicy one. may some do not like spicy"

Cons: "food was below average for typical QR"

Pros: "Stewardesses were great"
Cons: "It took them 1.5hours to give me my luggage. Everyone else had left. They kept making me go back and forth saying it was coming but nothing. This had never happened before and was ridiculous given it was a direct flight"

Pros: "The a380 business class was the greatest flying experience I ever had. Second to NONE! Must try and book if possible. I fly a LOT and this was just absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Nothing really! Although they do run out of food options so sit as far in the front as possible."

Cons: "Wish we had a few more choices like carnatic music and an expanded list of movies."

Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."

Pros: "Horrible experience!!!!"
Cons: "1. Emirates has only one piece option. With Laptop bag weighing about almost 5kgs, you are left with just 2kgs which the carry bag itself would weigh. Not sure, how Emirates is getting away with this discriminatory attitude, while rest of airlines do allow -Carry on + a personal item. 2. There is no check on the carry-on weight at SFO airport. While in DXB, they entice customer to buy all duty free and then when it comes to boarding, you will be 'shocked'. No more than 10kg allowed. 3. You will be directed to read instructions before boarding. Then the corruption deal starts...read point 4 4. The man will say, remove anything in excess of 10kg or pay extra luggage, knowing very well, that people buy duty free at DXB. 5. Once you start negotiating, then the deal-making starts... 6. I managed it. More on Facebook review..."

Cons: "Seat bookings in just fly are messed up. Kayak took me to just fly for the bookings. The seats for the the 16hr+ flight on just fly we're window seats however at time of check-in I got middle seats in the center 4 seats. It was the worst flight booking experience on kayak so far."

Cons: "I requested the waiter(Asian) to serve me a non-egg breakfast if there were any remaining. He curtly told me that if I had not pre-booked the non-egg breakfast he could not provide me. Few minutes later I made the same request to another waitress and she quickly provided me the non-egg breakfast."

Pros: "Crew is friendly and good service"
Cons: "Emirates did not honer the cost of the Hotel night in Dubai. Neither Kayak, nor Emirates advised us to book the hotel within 24 hours of flight time. We called Kayak, they have Zero customer service. We called Emirates, they blamed it on Kayak. They said that they should have advise us to book the Hotel at least 24 hours before departure. We ended up paying for our Hotel and meals and it should have been coveted by the Airline. Randa"

Cons: "this experience with emirates was super duper bad. I was travelling to India as my dad had passed away that morning on 9/11. Bad service, no attention paid to the flight attendant button, water provided after 45 min....after 2 fligh attendants came by and said they would bring water. i provided verbal feedback and they were extra nice to me then...brought me crackers , chiocolates...etc etc...but it was just to calm me down. I went and got my own food from the kitchen area as I had a splitting headache, I was traveling to india as my dad had passed away on sep 11th morning. They gave me the same dinner mushroom and peas for vegetarian snack. Then they exchanged it after I had waited for so long. IT was just ridiculous servide and"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and food was good."

Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."

Pros: "Excellent service, food and media."

Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"

Cons: "Bad food"

Pros: "Overall was Ok"
Cons: "I did ordered tea cup from flight attendants several Times but they did not remember until I went the kitchen they were eating. I had to ask them again.

Pros: "The crew and staff were generally friendly and the food was fine."
Cons: "For the first time in thirteen years traveling with my guitar, I was forced to check in my guitar, potentially in violation of the US Department of Transportation's rule on musical instruments. While my guitar thankfully arrived in good condition, this caused an unnecessary amount of stress in my 24 total hours of travel. I'd highly advise Cathay Pacific to revise their inflexible stance towards musical instruments, as many passengers brought carry-on bags which were much larger than my guitar in its case."

We received a confirmation email for two of the tickets but not for the other two so we assumed the other ones did not go through as we used two different credit cards."

Cons: "Nasty landing, last 5 min plane dropped 4to 5 times for whatever reason. Felt like it was a sesna"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Food was good for airline food."
Cons: "Swiss air seems to have lost its service edge. The flight attendants just stood around and watched while I struggled with my cane and my bag. They only seemed to snap into action to tell people what to do or not do. I flew the same route two years ago and staff was really kind. Maybe the working conditions have changed; they seemed harried and annoyed (in coach, at least). And I don't think they had to stand in line for an _hour_ to check in (thanks, LAX)."

Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."

Pros: "Flight attendants where very nice and attentive. Good choice of movies and shows for adults and kids. I usually don't eat airplane food but it looked fresh and my kids enjoyed the breakfast very much with fresh baked bread and croissant. My flight was delayed by one hour but it was a problem caused by the airport not the airline. I still made my connection and I received my suitcaises right away."

Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Cons: "Have to take a bus to the plane for boarding. Terrible cold sandwich wrapped in a partly open loose paper bag wrap. Short flight I realize, but that was bad, especially in business class."

Cons: "I paid extra for a seat with more room but found that the seat did not offer any more room than the average coach class seat in any other airline. That was unexpectedly disappointing."

Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"

Pros: "So far so good."

Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."

Pros: "Crew was really nice, comfortable seat, great experience"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "Great entertainment center. Complimentary alcohol and snacks. All this masks the torture of sitting in a way -too-small seat for 11 hours plus."

Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."
Cons: "No leg room uncomfortable seats food has gone way down hill since 2 years ago. None of the good chocolates anymore. check in people at the gates were cold fish."

Cons: "I have used the same carryon on several trips & only Swiss would not let me carry it inside telling me it was a bit high. Disappointed & surprised since never before I was told I had to check-in my carryon containing some essential items."

Cons: "I was asked to move from my reserved seat for another flyer"

Pros: "The straff is very nice. this made the flight a positive for me"
Cons: "i work with tech stuff and i couldnt find the switch for english on the entertainment system, or how to turn it off so the glow would bother me."

Pros: "very nice flight, good attendants, plentiful with food and drink although dinner was dry (pasta) but tasted fine. Planes (I had to transfer) were on time and efficient. My carry on luggage was weighed which was unusual to me. It was overweight but the kind clerk checked my bag through with no charge as a favor. A pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "Had to make a lot of calls to clarify things. Website not always clear. An example is that I paid extra to reserve seats early and when I went online to do other things, although it showed that I had a seat reserved, it also said no reservations were being taken for the flight in a highlighted notice. Turns out it was just a general blanket message but to me it looked like my seat may have been cancelled. All phone representatives were courteous and helpful although sometimes their accents were strong and challenging to understand but they didn't mind repeating themselves until I understood."

Pros: "The boarding process was well organized. The crew was overall pleasant."
Cons: "Check in time at the swiss ticket counter exceeded one hour. Too little space per seat. At breakfast, I was asked by the steward to bring my seat forward (presumably so that the people behind me could have more space?), when the people in front of me were reclined: my face was literally centimeters from their seat, which made eating breakfast difficult and unpleasant. The breakfast rolls were clearly not fresh and we're tough and dry, inspite of having been heated."

Pros: "Great crew, clean bathrooms, second baggage free"
Cons: "Hot meals and different drinks available like coke or sparkling water, with payment if necessary ."

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"

Pros: "My worst journey."

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"

Pros: "The # of movies."
Cons: "I sat next to 2 children. It smelled like baby poo off and on for the whole flight. There are no individual AC so the entire plane was on one temp which was stuffy and smelly at times. If some one passed gas, you could for sure smell it. I told the flight attendant and they agreed before I could describe so it wasn’t just me."

Pros: "Very nice love it"
Cons: "Very nice and love"

Pros: "The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable as possible"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I had to rearrange my bags 3-4 times even though I paid $80 additional for extra weight"

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"

Cons: "Missed the connecting flight because of flight boarding delay on the original destination. The airline did not accommodate my non-English speaking parents for overnight."

Cons: "Movies varaiety"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"

Pros: "The boarding process was very good."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm."

Pros: "Selection"
Cons: "Headphones or headphone plugs do not make good connection. Screen touch is hard to manage."

Pros: "Went above and beyond"
