Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Nice work"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Cons: "No toilet available at gate due to enhanced security measures when flying to the USA."
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "The luggage’s handler was probably throwing all the luggages around which cause my items to be broken. I have informed the counter staff of my fragile item yet I was shocked when I saw what has happened. I would appreciate if some compensation will be given."
Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable, easy boarding, good crew"
Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Cons: "Seat comfort was not very good.. and food was bad"
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Pros: "service attitude"
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted. Pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food The cabin temperature was close to freezing on the GOi-DOH international flight. No blankets provided when asked for blankets was told by the Indian air hostess on board the Qatar Airways flight that there is a shortage of blankets and they had to give children first Flight was at 3:50 am at this early tme pls provide blankets for all specially if it is freezing"
Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."

Cons: "I have nothing I dislike from Chennai to Doha it was only 5 hour journey so I was so comfy"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Pros: "The plane had everything I could want."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the plane was late, prompting me to miss my connecting flight. These things happen, I understand, but most upsetting was the fact that Qatar Airways provided very little information to those of us missing our flights. While on the plane, when those of us with short layovers mentioned that we may be late, we were told "you'll be fine - they hold the planes for a bit." When we deboarded the plane from New York, we ere wrangled into groups depending on our destinations. Many of us assumed that we were going to be taken to our next flights as we had been told they would be waiting for us. The airline rep in charge of my group refused to tell us any information, however, only admitting after we got confrontational with her that we had missed our flights. She then offered no information about what would happen to us, telling us we'd find out when we got to the rebooking counter. Very unprofessional. I was told that I would have to wait for another 24 hours for the next flight, necessitating that I would spend the night in Qatar. I was put up in a hotel that was decent, but again that offered very little in terms of customer service. We were given an $80 meal allowance, but despite me not using it, I was nickeled and dimed in other aspects to where I ended up paying $20 to help reschedule a flight that I had missed in my destination country. The whole ordeal was a nightmare and mostly due to poor communication and very cold, almost robotic interactions with the QA staff on the ground in Doha."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I notice when things go well. There is nothing I can complain about with Qatar; their equipment is up-to-date; their service is first-rate; their record for on-time departures and arrivals is excellent, and their food is good! I will gladly fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."

Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Last minute gate change. Had to drag the kids @ 3:30 AM from one terminal to other. Flight attendants were not in a good mood. Not even one smiled."
Cons: "veg food was mostly repeated and pizza wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Got Pizza for snack both ways. Could have been changed, and with 16 hours non stop, water should be offered more often. Although we can go get it ourselves, don't want to disturb others in the seat row to get snacks or water."
Pros: "Crew was professional, qiality of food great"
Cons: "Boarding is better done row-wise than by alphabetical groups which is arbitrary"
Pros: "The crew were awesome. I was very comfortable."

Cons: "luggage did not make connecting flight from dubai to jfk, inspite of pilot telling us 1 hour or so delay was waiting for luggage. at jfk was told can get same night if want to. this proved futile . spent hours at JFk waiting and talking to Emirates. spoke with multiple agents including Luz, sarah, etc. finally around 12 midnight was told customs would not release till next day. but promised to get it to us by 12noon next day (flying to wyoming next day at 330 pm) . this did not happen. again multiple phone calls and promises , failed. Kiamaria even got text of address in WY where 2 suitcases should have gone. All 4 suitcases were sent to NJ and arrived at 9pm. more phone calls. this time Rachel helped with fedex labels unfortunately more problems as fedex said no barcode and we had to go to fedex office and finally they took care of it so many hours wasted, not to mention the anxiety and frustratioon How are you going to reimburse all this ????"
Pros: "Only thing I liked in this flight was food."
Cons: "Starting from boarding this flight was a problem. we had a infant(18 month old) sleeping in our arms as the flight was at 3:30 Am and was delayed by an hour. There was not priority boarding for elderly and people with kids. We had to wait in queue holding our carry ons as well as the kid. As we were last in boarding it was hard to find a closest spot for our carry on. Crew would not respond for about 10 mins or so( not during take off or landing) this was during mid flight when there was no turbulence(seat belt sign was off). We asked for a veg meal instead of baby food as our kid eats solids and she does not like instant baby food's. We requested this when we booked her ticket , she was not even given food luckily we had some milk powder and water bottle. Really bad experience with Emirates"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "due to 11 kg total weight I had to check in a soft carry on bag resulting in :1/2 hour extra wait time and some crushed items. Vegetarian food was pretty tasteless."

Pros: "I traveled between New York and Chennai with layover in Dubai. 1.Flight experience was excellent between Dubai to New York (JFK)"
Cons: "1.the seat that i had on Flight from New York to Dubai was cramped,it had a decent entertainment system though. 2. Between Chennai to Dubai ,Flight experience was not good, Seating and entertainment in particular was not good , it was too cramped and too much glare on the TV screen, probably because i had a window seat."

Pros: "Great service and staff, best food I've had on an airline, great legroom in economy. Overall awesome, in my opinion."
Cons: "I waited in queue for almost 4 hours to get past security. While watching people cut the line, airport officials taking bribe and allowing some people to cut the line and more. i did not have enough time to purchase from the duty free store in chennai and since my flight from chennai was late it landed late in Dubai so I did not have any time to purchase anything in dubai duty free before my connecting flight. I reached airport 4 hours before departure and I get treated like this, horrible service."
Pros: "The staff who checked me in at chennai were rude and unhelpful. They spoke in an unacceptable manner - when asking why about my baggage weight. Discriminating against musicians - rude to women. Very poor experience. I did not even get a receipt for my extra baggage for which I paid 50 usd."
Cons: "Rude staff at ground on chennai and seeking to make money, discriminatory"
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."

Pros: "I liked the crew and the attitude of staff"

Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."
Cons: "The website does not allow updating of food preferences. I tried multiple times to update my preferences but it did not work well. Veg options are a must for flights originating from India as there are several passengers who prefer veg meals. However, this was not well attended to in the flight."
Cons: "The crew was not helpful in keeping us informed about the delay, or in helping us make our connections."
Pros: "Flight was good - smooth takeoff & landing. But delayed half hour in Abu Dhabi , did not make it up. Crew good but food was not tasty. My wife's specially ordered Jain vegetarian meal was inedible. Seat comfort OK but soiled by a supper in seat ahead, could not stretch legs."

Pros: "All the flight attendants were professional and courteous. I would like to thank the staff particularly on my return journey who were very courteous and professional."
Cons: "Vegetarian food. The airlines need to differentiate clearly between regular vegetarian Vs special vegetarian meals. Special vegetarian meal is tasteless and has nothing in it. Also, the food portions are small and it wouldn't hurt the business if they include a decent snack in between the meals. Food wise, its a lean mean cuisine."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats that seemed to bite into my thighs. I am glad it was a short enough flight."
Pros: "Service was competent and I commend the stewards and stewardesses for making the best of a poor situation"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and leg room is tiny. I am likely not alone in saying that I would pay a little extra for my ticket if all our seats were a bit more roomy and leg room a bit wider. And I am not talking about just your upgrades - I detest such a la carte pricing that only make money for the company without considering comfort for the customers."
Pros: "Your service"
Cons: "Your boarding staff at abu dhabi"
Pros: "New flights Very good entertainment Good quality food Customer focused crew"
Cons: "Liquid supply (water) more often would have been nice"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled at JFK..No food voucher or hotel voucher given.. No assistance in getting to near by airport for rescheduled flight. Flight has been cancelled 2 times already. Stuck in New york from last one day. Ethihad needs to do more for international passengers to help them find an accommodation at least. There was nobody to help or a distress center available at JFk airport."
Cons: "I had requested a special meal on my profile. before my onward journey I had also verified at the gate that my special meal was included. 1) they ran out of meals and didn't even realize that i had a special meal - they did try to accommodate and infact i think one of the meals looked like it came from the crew themselves. However it should not be the case 2) the cafe items are not marked for special meals. they ran out of vegetarian items by the time they reached my seat. as a result i had no food at snack time at all."
Pros: "Fell asleep"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The flight was not socially distanced"
Cons: "The flight was not socially distanced"

Pros: "Crew, clean toilets, quality of food/beverages served, punctuality (arrived early), entertainment"
Cons: "Cold temp/a bit cramped in economy, plane landing was rough!"
Cons: "delayed an hour even though the flight took less than an hour"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a reported maintenance issue with the aircraft but was originally delayed because of not having flight attendants available. When the flight attendants did finally arrive they all had an attitude of wishing to be anywhere but on this flight. The lead flight attendant even got into a verbal altercation with the gate agent demanding help getting people's bags into the overhead compartment because she was "injured" & not supposed to be at work. All in all a quite dissatisfying experience but not an uncommon one with this airline & this airport. I will use both only when I have absolutely no other options."
Pros: "It was a red-eye flight and the crew kept the lighting low and the cabin quiet."
Cons: "More snack variety than pretzel nibbles."
Pros: "Nice gate agent was holding the plane for some of us who were running from International connections"
Cons: "Wish the plane was a little cooler while passengers were boarding"
Pros: "Nothing n"

Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Good flight good crew"
Cons: "Hated the connection from terminal 5 to terminal 3 we should not have to go through the departure lounge this added 10 mins or more into a very tight connection."
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."
Pros: "Good food service and friendly crew. No waits in line for bathrooms."
Cons: "That my bag was overweight and I would have to get out of line and go to another section of the airport to rearrange my luggage, which would make it too time consuming. Had no choice but had to pay the steep charge!"
Pros: "Finnair uses the American Airlines flight for this destination. Non-stop flight Raleigh to Heathrow (round trip).. Fantastic, on time and comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "It would have been easier to book our seat assignments if Fdfinnair had directed us to contact American Airlines directly to get seat assignments. Could not pre-select through Finnair. If you did not want the meat meal the vegetarian meals on both flights included mushrooms...not into fungi."
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but we had a long delay because of weather"
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nice comfy plane, reasonably quick boarding"
Cons: "Philly’s airport sucks Half the mens’ bathroom stalls don’t work, doors weren’t closing, in multiple bathrooms!! The crew could have been a bit more attentive to picking up or collecting trash, but otherwise I liked them fine."
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick."
Cons: "My departure changed three times, The first change was an 82-minute delay, then a 2-hour delay, then a 30-minute delay. Overall, the final departure as only 30 minutes after my initially scheduled departure, but it caused a lot of frustration."
Cons: "Plane not ready to go because of missing trash bags"
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "Landed on time. AA is mostly on or before schedule. Definitely like that part. Smooth flying as well."
Cons: "No interactions with the crew this time. Boarding is okay."
Pros: "Flt on time. Arrived on time"
Cons: "A young child screemed constantly. Not sure how you would address. Have had kids so been there"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane took off a little late but not enough to mess up my plans"
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Pros: "Sat in the exit, very nice and comfortable Crew was very well dressed and polite"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized Flight was almost an hour late After getting on the plane, there was at least another 20 minute delay"
Cons: "Someone had been sick on the plane. They cleaned it up but it still had a pretty decent residual odor to bear in an hour plus long flight."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Cons: "They squeezed me into a new plane after saying there was absolutely no way for me to get home... hmm."
Pros: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "That I made it alive."
Cons: "I lost my keys and not one single person has contacted me about my lost set of keys, even when I left my contact info with them."
