Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."

Pros: "The flight was delayed from sfo to Hongkang. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was helpful but 1 crew forgot my dinner drink which was a hot tea drink."

Pros: "My flight was delayed, at check-in I was offered an earlier flight that was departing in 40 minutes. Because premium economy was full I was upgraded to business class"
Cons: "not getting any AA miles for economy / economy plus tickets on Cathay. Will make me consider flying alternatives like Thai next time"

Pros: "Comfortable enough on board. Good service."
Cons: "Late out and inbound. Dirty Airbus plane outside. Needs a good scrub!"
Cons: "Delayed without notice."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "On time. Got an isle seat."
Cons: "Signs on the airport screens were not updated in time so estimated departure times passes without boarding notices."
Cons: "Food was ok. Toilets were not given any attention during the 14 hour flight. Overhead bins were full so i had to sit for 14 hours with my backpack at my feet"
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "The service from start to finish was superb. The flight to Hong Kong had the on board attendants at full service the whole journey. Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "Print customer service and polite staff"
Cons: "Limited wheelchair availability"
Pros: "The staff was attentive to fixing the problem after it happened three times."
Cons: "TV monitor was broken and I could not use it for several hours"
Pros: "I flew from NY to Phuket via Cathay Pacific which is a 22 hr flight! The crew was pleasant and friendly and took excellent care of my family and I. I would fly with them again anytime."
Cons: "My only complaint, if I have to make any suggestions would be more leg room."
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "The bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked fine."
Cons: "Economy class cabin is chaotic. Food is mediocre."
Pros: "In flight service was excellent. Food was great. Good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. Could not hear which rows were being called up and the line was really long."
Pros: "First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!"
Pros: "The overhead compartments are a good size. The staff was friendly. There was decent legroom in front of the seats. The food was more flavorful than most airlines."
Cons: "In Hong Kong there was an additional security checkpoint set up at the gate. I had to throw away all liquids I purchased. Usually, once you've cleared customs and security checkpoints you can buy food and liquids within the airport and board the flight. Not sure if this was an airport thing or an airline thing. Either way it was highly inconvenient and annoying"
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Plane was old but clean."
Pros: "keep it up"
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"

Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."

Pros: "Food nice, much better than KLM. Typical great Asian service."
Cons: "No information as to why boarding was over 30 minutes late, even though last call was announced!"
Pros: "I had requested a diabetic meal and they came to talk to me about any other specifics that could be affect the reasons for my choice for have a diabetic meal. The flight attendants were very courteous and polite"
Cons: "It has nothing to do with the airline really, but the person in front of me had their seat back but because of the long legs of the person behind me, I was unable to recline, so I did sometimes feel in a bit of a closed spot. Not the airline's fault really."
Pros: "On time is no good way off due to dark clouds. But laying back passengers should be limited their distances pulling back causes others very unpleasant ty"
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "Price. Crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Food was poor and only one out of three entree choices were available. That entree was pasta with cubed potatoes, with a side of cold potatoes in a vinegar sauce. Three starches! The economy seats are extremely uncomfortable for a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Great service from the crew and good entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was less than stellar. It gave me heartburn and was unappealing."
