Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."
Pros: "I was already travelling 5000km so I didn't notice anything"

Cons: "Crew nice alway take care customer"
Cons: "Dely to time"
Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."

Pros: "Service and crue was good"

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Cons: "Mashed connection"
Pros: "I like it."
Cons: "No problem"
Cons: "Even though we got off our connecting flight 30 mins before departure, the flight had "already left" as per the Qatar Doha crew and we were re-booked to the following day's flight. Very ridiculous."

Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"

Cons: "DTW is a busy airport on a Saturday morning. Even with TSA Pre-check it took an hour to get through security ... but keep us safe!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "That you had to pay for your entertainment--after all the fees and extra charges you pay when you buy the ticket, you would think the entertainment/TV would be free, or at least just the flight map."
Pros: "The crew did a great job helping us on board and talking us through changing our connections."
Cons: "The flight into Newark was delayed four hours because the airport was shut down for political officials. This probably should've been expected."
Cons: "We were supposed to leave but had to wait on the runway. And I was a little cold , and the air was stale. Other than that it was great."

Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."
Pros: "Safe flight. Short."
Pros: "The flight was on time. And it landed on time!"
Cons: "I received a " see agent" instead of a seat. When I asked about it at the gate, the woman said , I'll call you up" .?? Well no one called me up and when there were less than 10 people to board, I went up again. This time the gentleman handed me my new boarding pass. This was not cool!!!"
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
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!!"

Cons: "Almost didn't get a seat."

Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."
Cons: "It cost me money to rent a hotel to stay overnight and get here in the morning and my flight was still delayed because there was no body to tow the the plane and bring it to the gate . Miss work , miss appointments , etc . Pharmacy about to shortdown because of this poor notifications . Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"
Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"
Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."

Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "Because my first flight from detroit was an hour late i missed this flight and flew American which that flight was nice"
