I have spend lots of money and written 3 LONG mails to Qatar Customer Service - some have been teplied with a ”we will get back to You” note - but nobody has gotten back to me so far. Not 5 Stars. Actually One star is too good a Grade for this complete service failure from A-Z."

Pros: "We had requested wheelchair assistance. And the way helper was assisting us its not professional services. Which Qatar Airways promissi g to us."

When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error.

Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"
Pros: "The service was great"
Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."

Cons: "We need to promote paper free boarding passes for whoever can afford. Atleast an endeavor."

Pros: "I was very late and the gate was closed but the staff helped me make it on time."
Cons: "I booked on Emirates and on my way back I flew with Fly Dubai it wasn’t specified in the ticket. There were no pillows, no covers and I was freezing! No entertainment it is a downgrade from Emirates. At least the ticket should have costed less."
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures too very long."
Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."
Cons: "Two teenage passengers were in front of us, extremely disruptive and loud the entire flight and no one from the crew addressed it or asked them to keep the noise down.

Cons: "when i asked for lunch they said it will be served in 20mins and i got it after 50 mins i was very hungry"
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Cons: "Over charged for bags paid $326.00 for one extra bag I call Airline in Dubai they said you have been over charged"

Pros: "Emirates is a great airline with friendly staff and an amazing fleet of aircraft"
Cons: "I had updated for my flight from Jeddah to Dubai, but found that business class passengers were not given priority boarding and had to wait for all other passengers to board. The plane also took off late."
Pros: "The aircraft (a 777) and the on-board amenities and service."
Cons: "Too many clueless passengers. I could not wait for the flight to end. It took a full hour and a half to get my single suitcase at the Kolkata airport."

Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment options"

Cons: "The overhead lights did not seem to align with the correct seats."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment is as good as ever."
Cons: "The food was wore, the staff seemed less happy and the flight was overcrowded. Not a bad experience, really, but slightly worse than the same flight the previous year. Getting to be the world's best airline may be less challenging than remaining such."
Pros: "The cabin attendant was friendly and kindly moved me to an empty 3-seat first row. I was able to stretch my legs and sleep better during an overnight flight."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "eg space and the service..."
Cons: "Food wasn't great...Not many selection on old Bollywood movies."
Cons: "Most horrible experience... customer service is horrible ... didn't even take the flight . They delayed the flight and they think it is ok to put us on any flight they want . I booked the flight because i was particular on the shortest duration of the flight they rebooked me on a flight that would have taken me to my destination after 36 hrs and the way the crew spoke was so horrible. It was as if they did me a favor by putting me on another flight."
Pros: "All flight attendants dressed and acted in a VERY professional manner. Always polite and helpful. Lots of smiles. Loved the eye mask, ear plugs, socks and toothbrush. Food was much better than most flights on other airlines."
Cons: "On such a long flight I wish my seat would have gone back just a little more. Might have been easier to sleep. Would have liked to have a newer selection of movies."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options and food was okay"
Cons: "All flights were consistently delayed"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "Great flight from Milano to NYC. Always traveling with emirates"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment on a comfortable sized tv screen."
Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and the flight crew are good."

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."

Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "I had an infant travelling with me and they gave a bassinet. When it was in use I was not able to use ICE on the flight because the way it was setup on my seat."
Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"
Cons: "Again the same indifferent attitude by cabin crew towards student gustes and particularly females. I was sick on the fligt despite informing crew no care was taken. I lost one of my check inn bag airline is indifferent. No help or compensation."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, courteous and professional crew!"
Cons: "My luggage is delayed in Dubai because the earlier flight didn't follow the schedule and delay everything. My laptop and homeworks are all in there and I have big exam the next day so it crews everthing. This is what Emirates should improve next time!"
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew provided the best service I think I’ve ever gotten on a flight. Attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional. The seats were comfortable and food was good!"
Cons: "Keep the lights off :)"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Pros: "We could reschedule it. But only a week later."
Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."
Pros: "I travelled with two small children, we had a slight delay and the captain allowed my children into the cockpit during the wait. The crew were so friendly and helpful and my children really enjoyed the trip."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly, respectful and welcoming"
Cons: "The flight did not provide any complimentary water, tea or coffee which made the crew members have to run credit cards for every beverage someone purchased... even water!"
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "I liked that they had a veggie option for food for dinner service."
Cons: "I didn't like the British Airways terminal at Heathrow - everything was automated. There was no human interaction and the ground staff was scarce therefore it was difficult to ask any questions."
Cons: "Nothing special and generally disappointing."
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch with few exceptions. Safe journey. Great price tag with what should have been limited connections."
Cons: "BA used to be one of my three favorite airlines, especially the international. Sat on tarmac for over 2 hours because no one thought to load luggage of a couple hundred people or de-ice the wings for the sprinkle of snowflakes that terrified London. Cancelled our first flight to London a few hours before we were to leave home and after two hours on the phone, we were instructed to cancel our remaining flights and purchase a connecting flight to our destination ON OUR OWN DIME with the hope BA May reimburse. Had to fly into another COUNTRY, pay for our own hotel room and transfers and got to our final destination a day later, with only crossed fingers BA will take care of some of those expenses or at very least reimburse for the cancelled flight. They Lost our luggage on the way home because of a 2-hour delay (tarmac story above^), because they involved 3 airlines in their efforts to help us connect back home. Staff and crew we saw face to face were great to help...though not all customers shared that experience as we witnessed. Administratively, based on our 2 weeks of multi-country travel with them, BA seems to have lost the ability to manage themselves. 2.5 hour flight from Rome to London has terrible service and we had to ask for water to drink. Everything else was paid...I’m accustomed to that on regionals Euro commuter flights but very surprising on a full-fledged BA plane covering that distance. So many extra inches given to the thirty folks in first and business that commoners get sardine seats across the pond to America. That being said, the seats themselves are plenty comfortable withthe exception of arm rests that do not fully position upright. BA used to make you feel incredibly fortunate to fly with them. Now, I appreciate the crew who worked very hard to make-up for such an ugly delay on the ground and in baggage and flightbmanagement. The rest left me with a migraine."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"
Pros: "Chose of Ent. was good."

Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Pros: "The flights was quick!"
Cons: "British airways didn't transfer my bag to the next location. I spent all day in Zagreb freezing and missing my jackets and warmer clothing which were all in my suitcase. I had no time to purchase anything, therefore no receipts for them to reimburse me for the inconvenience."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"
Pros: "Effective communication from the pilot"
Cons: "Still mind blown that they lost our suitcase."
Pros: "The middle seat was empty. Handed out drinks regularly."
Cons: "Really long gap between the main meal and the snack. I was hungry enough my stomach was growling. General boarding was mayhem. On the way to London, we boarded back to front. Fewer available movies than on United."
Cons: "I am 6'3" and I cannot find sufficient leg room. The answer is paying additional for seats with extra leg room, is no answer at all. The answer is quit jamming more seats in to a ever shrinking cabin."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Many lengthy transfers at Heathrow. Exhausting."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. crew was courteous. Flight was plesant"
Cons: "the booking stated that it was Aer Lingus. I went to their counter in Terminal 1 and had to wait in two lines before being told that I was in the wrong terminal and I needed to go to the british airways counter to check in. This was a fail."
Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and courteous"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Food was quite good. Crew were helpful."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I liked that I got home safe"
Cons: "I didn't like the 2 hour delay to my schedule. Zero complimentary drinks or snacks to say sorry. Bumpy ride for two and half hours. Stuck on the tarmac at Gatwick for 40 minutes."
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, especially when having to deal with a difficult passenger throughout the duration of the flight."
Cons: "There was a delay which inconvenienced a friend picking me up. Also, not a complaint, but I have experienced better video entertainment technology. But it's still amazing I get to watch movies while traveling in the air from one continent to another continent."
Pros: "Nice staff who are doing their best with the little they have."
Cons: "The planes are dated. No Wifi. Bad food. Limited entertainment. I was kind of shocked at how lame it was. I will never fly them again, if I can help it."

Pros: "the plane was spceous in the economy section. comparatively new aircraft and well maintained, the cabin crew were very co-operative, graceous and well behaved. overall good experience."
Cons: "the starting of serving non-veg food took very long time. british airways should focuss attention to this."
Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."
Pros: "Free drinks and food when traveling overseas. Possibly cheaper flights than other airlines?"
Cons: "I got switched to American Airlines last minute, which is a sister company of British Airways, apparently. This was 1 of the 2 worst flights that I have ever been on, only second to my other booked flight for this trip home. This flight was 7+ hours long and it was nothing short of horrible. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and barely went back at all. The male flight attendant was clearly annoyed and was short with every person who would ask for anything. He would roll his eyes at every request by customers. At one point I saw him literally toss a sandwich into a customers lap because they were turned the other way and didn't hear him when he asked if they wanted one. There was no way to watch anything unless you had your own device and had downloaded it yourself prior to the flight."
Pros: "The breakfast served in the route Abuja to Heathrow was very hot and tasty. The hostesses were great. Good service overall"
Pros: "Got a whole row to myself since the plane wasnt full. The crew was great and the food was nice and warm."
Pros: "Pleasant efficient staff. Flight on time"
Pros: "On time takeoff and landing. Assistance was great and the crew was polite and friendly."

Cons: "I liked everything!"
Pros: "I liked that we were on time getting to Phoenix."

Pros: "plane was punctual"
Cons: "extremely uncomfortable seats and hardly any space."
Pros: "Crew was supportive and very kind"
Cons: "Big delay due to unanounced gate for boarding. Systems at the airport were not giving the info. It took more than an hour to gather all passengers to the plane, which ended in 1hr 20 min delay."
Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."
Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"
Cons: "I didn’t even make this flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."

Pros: "Comfy seats and a smooth ride."

I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."

Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"

Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"
