Airline reviews

Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"

Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."

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

Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."

Cons: "Quatar is the best"

Cons: "Cancellation of the flight could have done before boarding."

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"

Pros: "Thank you to wonderful hard working Crew."
Cons: "I am a lacto ovo vegitarian. The meal was just vegitarian. I would have like to have an ice cream or a piece of cake."

Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."

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

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: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work Boarding at Colombo air port is absolutely the worst We have seen. I have traveled a lot. Took 1 hr 30 mins to check in 40 people."

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."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"

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

Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"

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 crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

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

Pros: "Excellent!"

Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rudeness of check in staff Disorganized, slow and chaotic screening process for transfer passengers (only two machines for thousands hundred passenger) Near- or semi-illiterate ground staff"

Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."

Cons: "No entertainment"

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

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Not sufficient food, less quantity or quality of food, cramped seat, there was a big guy sitting next to me, unable to even rest my hand"

Pros: "The food was fabulous and plentiful. We also took advantage of the free tour of Doha--a very pleasant way to spend a six-hour layover. Flight attendants were all very attentive and helpful."

Cons: "There was no boarding system, everyone just crowded the gate. Food was unappetizing at best. Colombo Qatar Airways staff at Colombo airport were not very helpful when trying to change details of my booking."

Pros: "Great food, comfortable new plans, great food, great crew"
Cons: "Boarding in Colombo was dire - they boarded the plane from the back, leaving Business Class passengers waiting in the hot, uncomfortable gate area until last"

Pros: "I think that the food can improve and it felt like the flight was short staffed."

Cons: "I had a problem of online check in as it mentioned to book online 24hours before departure, I got up early morning to book a seat online. Unfortunately I could not book a seat online as the website was not updated by that time for online booking. It was supposed to be activated by 4:10am on 31st Feb but it was activated around 10:30am. That is after 6hours of scheduled time. I was panic and tried to contact the Sri Lankan Office at Katunayake. But the phone was directed to another line where no body answered. I sent an email but up to now no reply. The online service is horrible."

Cons: "Qatar become a gold digger. They check the weight of the hand carry after first leg of the trip. My ticket was CMB-Doha-Dallas-Atlanta return. After first segment (Atlanta-Dallas or Colombo-Doha) they checked the weight of my hand carry. I have a big telephoto lens and camera. Weight exceeded 8 kgs. So they threatened to left me if I did not check my bag and pay US $ 300 which I paid. This is wrong. They did not do this to all passengers. In the flight I saw many over weight hand carries."

Pros: "Nice fly attendants. Boarding on time."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight delay and postponed my journey more than three hours without any compensation"

Pros: "Short trip very comfortable"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."

Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."

Cons: "I didn't like my seat placement this time round. Was put in the seat infront of business class as no other option. Really uncomfortable."

Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."

Cons: "The crew was not friendly and very slow. I was flying with an infant and a child and have had excellent experiences on a number of other less expensive airlines and I am disappointed that I had bad service on Emirates business class."

Pros: "Excellence !!!"

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"

Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."

Pros: "I loved the bigger screens and the fact that I could watch movies from the monument I boarded and did not have to wait until take off! I also loved the use of real cutlery in economy. The flight was fantastic. The toilets in economy are spacious too."
Cons: "The leg room could be a wee bit better. Then again, I was in economy."

Pros: "The crew make Emirates great.....but the tools they have make the job easy."
Cons: "Found the seatbelt a little tight when sleeping, as it has to go over the blanket"

Pros: "I was very comfortable."

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"

Pros: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance"
Cons: "Nothing! An old vintage 777 flown with bad entertainment systems. Remotes were not working properly. Screens were rebooted again and again. Very very old aircraft. Poor maintenance. An extremely poor show my emirates who call themselves a premier airline and this was a POOR SHOW!"

Cons: "Baggage collection slow still waiting"

Pros: "Great entertainment. Crew was calm and professional."
Cons: "Food was ok, but I've had a lot better on Emirates. Low carb options would make it amazing."

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."

Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."

Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."

Cons: "The plane sat at the gate for 1 1/2 hours, and I got to my motel in Dubai around midnight."

Pros: "Nothing good to mention"
Cons: "Check in counter staff are more aggressive than their passenger. Dealing with the passenger/customer with respect and in a polite manner must be applied."

Pros: "The crew were good and attentive but I couldn't help but feel they were hopelessly understaffed."
Cons: "Despite the size of the A380 seats have been crammed in so that there is no real difference in comfort between travelling on one of them or in a low cost airline such as Jetstar. Unless of course you can afford First or Business Class."

Pros: "good baby gifts"

The service is good and the flights are always in time and well clean. There ia flat seats between Doha to Colombo and from there to Kerala is normal flight but its fine.

Pros: "I really liked the crew treatment, they were polite and we well served by them ."
Cons: "The long queue infront Gulf air check in desk in the airport! People who came early that had to wait for a long time to have their boarding pass! I think increasing the number of employers in that area will be a great idea ."

Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."

Pros: "I Had best filght gulf air"
Cons: "I dont have visa but i have best experiance in your country"

Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."

Pros: "Very smooth flight and excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time flying, entertainment"
Cons: "The custurd sandwich, they could have just simply serve cheddar cheese sandwich. He kids meal was very good though"

Cons: "Bag lost in Bahrain"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"

Cons: "My son has a DPNA for traveling - none of the airline staff was aware of it or what it even means. Traveling with children with disabilities is hard enough, airline and ground staff should not make it more difficult."

Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."

Cons: "The flight to Muscat was great — the flight from Muscat to Bangalore sucked!"

Cons: "Asked for water 2 x with none ever brought"

Pros: "That it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Turn on A/C of plane upon boarding (it is the only airline where the A/C is turned on after the aircraft detaches from gate, even budget airlines in have A/C on when boarding) Improve entertainment (more movies / better selection up to date) Increase seating space Improve food options and quality"

Pros: "Good flight and really comfortable. Rate 5 star"
Cons: "Very satisfied on my travel from London to Muscat"

Cons: "Air craft very small was full with passengers ac was not good before takeoff. No baggage arrived to lahore i am really depressed due to baggage .please help to find baggae"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Back to back delayed flights, no entertainment, no food or drinks, slow luggage delivery, etc"

Cons: "Take care of hygiene & control work under pressure."

Pros: "Flight arrived when it should"
Cons: "the seating space is incredibly small, which made the flight uncomfortable"

Pros: "Movies in the entertainment screen."
Cons: "At the boading, just when we were putting our luggage we were around 5 kg more, in a bad way the turkish lady there asked us to reduce or pay. We reduced the luggage and 2 kg more were left but her and her boss isisted in a rude way to pay or to remove more luggage. We asked her boss to help us in lifting one big bag since we were all girls and couldnt lift it but he refused to help as a gentleman would do and said quick quick put the bag quickly. For sure I wi never chose turkish airline again."

Pros: "in flight entertainment was really good"
Cons: "checkin luggage was terrible with more than half an hour wait although web checkin was already made"

Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."

Pros: "Loved all of it. Zero complaints"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Siting in 15E seat next to a big man that was taking part of my seat Extremely uncomfortable Had to wait over a hour for the luggage Long and complicated transfer at Muscat, New airport toilets smell like ashtray"

Cons: "Space of between the seat roll is quite small."

Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."

Pros: "It was only a short trip from Doha to Muscat to Dubai but it went very well. The flights were on time, the plane was comfortable and the staff were very helpful."
Cons: "My only concern was that unless I caught the 4.00 pm flight I had to wait until the 7.30 pm (4 hour layover) or 9.30 pm (2 hour layover) flights from Doha both of which do not get to Dubai until 3.30 am. I could not catch the 4.00 pm as it was a work day. The flight timings are not good."

Cons: "Problems with our extra legroom being allocated at the check in desk as oman employ a 3rd party called option town to handle this process. Numerous broken tv screens on the aircraft preventing passengers from watching tv. Losing our baggage for over 2 days. Creaking tv screens prevent passengers from sleeping. Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."

Pros: "Decent entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Poor quality headphones - jacks are often messed up make sure you have your own. Got food poisoning on Muscat to Paris flight - other than that the food tended to be quite bland. Need to give out more water on flight to combat dehydration as well. Stopping in Muscat's terminal was like a time warp back to a 1970s mall. Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Never thought I would be as happy to get back to Manila!"

Pros: "Service, food, Cabin cleanliness, friendly service"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Service was sufficient."
Cons: "We were told our luggage will be on the ramp but we had to wait at the luggage carousel. Our landing was very rough and alarming."

Cons: "Very delayed. Would not put us on a direct flight."

Pros: "We took off on time. Attendants were nice. Value for money."
Cons: "Lavatory I used was a bit messy. Meal option was a bit blah."

Pros: "Service was the best"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "The headphones didn't work"

Pros: "Cleanliness and Staff treated"
Cons: "space of Place of departure area and the waiting places are very crowded there were people sitting on the ground and also delay in flying."

Pros: "Better options in A/V meal"
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Bad, flight was delayed by an hour without announcement. Further another 10 mins wait due to some problem at aero bridge. Overall poor."

Pros: "Okay legroom, a 787 Dreamliner really is an excellent airplane though so it made up for it. Entertainment options were excellent, easily kept me occupied throughout."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but can't complain about the meat or veggie option."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less legroom than usual/expected. Crew was fine but wasn't too proactive and took quite a while to get things going regarding food/beverages."

Pros: "Was the cheapest flight for the dates on offer and now apparent short cuts"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Hospitality and efficiency."
Cons: "There could be a drinks trolley at the back to help yourself"

Pros: "It is worth it to pay a little more for exit seats. They were very comfortable. The agents at checkin were very helpful. I came with a backpack, a roller bag I often can carry on and another bag to check.The bag allowance was just one to check. They wouldn't let me carry on my roller bag because it was too heavy. They encouraged me first to rearrange the luggage to make the one light enough to carry on, by putting some in the other bag that was being checked, But I explained that bag was already full. So they urged me to get my two bags wrapped together so that there would not be an extra bag charge. The ticket agent also came out to look for me---I hadn't realized they boarded so early---and walked with me to the gate. That was very nice of them. There were snacks and beverages on both flights and friendly stewardesses, and lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "The second flight I didn't get the exit seats and was a bit cramped, but that was a shorter flight, so it didn't matter much."

Pros: "Everything was awesome!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "What airline in 2017 requires you to present your credit card if booked using CC at time of bording, then takes 20 minutes to verify this? Oman air does. In addition, they called me to tell me my flight time changed and so decided to push the flight back one day, so they rebooked me. Then at airport was told i missed my flight...completely maddening and had to throw a fit before they finally booked us on the flight we were told by phone we had yet didnt seem to register in their systems."

Cons: "Flight did not take off due to technical prOblems with the plane. Looking to get a refund but very bad response rate."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."

Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Crew was friendşy"

Pros: "The price was great and the service and planes were adequate for a relatively short flight."

Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."

Pros: "Friendly crew, timeliness"
Cons: "Insufficient leg space, available movie selection"

Pros: "Movies"

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was friendly."

Cons: "After boarding 3 passengers were made to disembark. This happens for different reasons. But the pilot refused to turn any ventilation. Cost savings? We were left to fan ourselves as the cabin overheated in the hot sun. No civilized airline can showe this sort of disregard for passenger comfort. After being tortured for an hour we finally got off the ground. Sorry, Oman Air, lots of room for improvement. I had a wonderful time in Oman and look forward to returning on Emirates."
