Cons: "I wish all the seats were like first class. We were in economy class"

Pros: "Great service, attitude, hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever. Thought I was a king or prince. And that's how they make you feel. If I can, I only fly JAL and especially the flight JL9"
Cons: "The fact there are many airlines which can't even get close to what JAL can offer and even if they try, employees won't be able to match it because of the cultural differences.

Cons: "No babies"

Pros: "It seemed noise free but I think that’s because they turned all the lights off as if night time. The flight attendants were helpful when asked and friendly"

Pros: "After waiting for 5 hours on the airport, was happy to get in the plane. Business lounge is mediocre and over crowded."
Cons: "Flying form LA Had to wait an hour in the air pane for a gate to be assigned in Seoul. It was due to weather issues but crew was not very informative. Connecting flight was delayed by four hours and crew was not sure Did not inform when the flight will leave. Passengers from another delayed flight gathered around our gate and blocked us from entering boarding our plane. They were demanding that our flight should be canceled and didn’t let us board. Security was present they were taking notes but never intervened. This is the first time I have experience this type of chaos on an airport but from the signs posted, it appears that it may be normal situation and this airport.

Pros: "I am giving my flight from Seoul to Bangkok 5 stars because the crew were just lovely. They were kind, attentive and ( shock) seemed to want to be on the flight. Too often nowadays it seems as if we( the paying customer) are nothing but a huge annoyance to the flight crew for daring to sk for a blanket, need a drink or to have to use the facilities. We had a screaming child in the row ahead most of the flight and one of the flightees went so far as to walk the toddler in her arms around the plane to help smooth her. The food reminded me of airlines meals years ago with a served roll and butter, main course ( beef with potatoes and veggies) , a tofu and soy sauce side and ice cream for dessert- no plastic silver wear here, proper solid stainless. Lots of juice and water on offer all flight and beer, wine etc with meal. American carriers should take a leaf out of this airline's book!"

Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight.

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "All around great airline. Comfortable for super long flights and completely accommodating."

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"

Pros: "Films Service"
Cons: "Not enough films"

Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

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: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Could not be more impressed with the airline, absolutely would recommend to anyone!"

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."

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."

Pros: "Qatar airlines was awesome! Comfy seat, great headrest, lots of entertainment options and decent food all on a very short flight. Would definitely fly this airline again!"

Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I thought the flight was fine :)"

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Attentive service ready to appease any request very clean toilets"
Cons: "Type of aircraft Films Selections in particular World Group not changed much since April"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Pros: "Top notch service by Qatar airline. They accommodated us. We don't eat beef or chicken and didn't know you could request vegetarian online before flight. They found a fish meal and informed us to apply for meal online."
Cons: "Seats too close. Person in front was in our lap almost."

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."

I was never informed why there was so much of a delay and in turn I had to pay triple of what I payed before for my flight. Very disappointed. Won't be flying this airline again. Service was rude. They should be more responsible when it comes to timing. We were on the flight waiting for two hours!!!"

Pros: "Constant service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Seat area is too small. No room for legs/feet. Garbage was not picked up."

Cons: "Bad service at boarding. Agent receiving boarding passes demanded we have a visa or letter of invitation that is not required for our destination."

Pros: "Great crew. Super nice to our 4 year old daughter. They were quick, extra polite and efficient. I'm usually quite picky but this leg was perfect."
Cons: "It was all good(which I rarely get to say these days on any carrier)"

Pros: "The service was impeccable!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."

Pros: "Crew service was amazing. 2 meals on the long trip, 1 meal on the short flight. Very satisfied"

Pros: "Flight attendants are professional and efficient, and the aircraft is clean and has an excellent entertainment center for all passengers."

Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."

Pros: "food was amazing"

Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up trays."

Pros: "Better food and service than other airlines on which I've traveled recently. Loading passengers was disciplined and speedy. Staff very helpful. Istanbul airport is great for a long wait.

Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my special dietary request"

Pros: "Love this airline. Great service. Great people. Food and service good"

Pros: "food was excellent"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner."

Cons: "I know seats in the 777-300 recline but do not disrupt the next row's space. That was not the case on the Airbus A330-300. It would be nice if the same seats were on the Airbus aircraft I flew from Istanbul to Bangkok."

Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Cons: "Nothing arrived on time even though it departed late"

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."

Pros: "I like everything regarding the airline."
Cons: "The airport was attacked by a terrorist and hour after I left to Skopje. I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."

Pros: "Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free."
Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."

Pros: "Every thing was perfect and the service too"

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."
Cons: "The Boeing 777 had the new, smaller seats. No control of overhead airflow among other things. Wish they still had the old Airbus A330's and 340''s."

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"

Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."

Cons: "My seat did not recline and was broken. I was not happy about this as it was a 10 hour flight, and could not get comfortable"

Pros: "FOOD,, CREW ATTITUDE & TIMEING."
Cons: "AS BOVE"

Pros: "New, clean, and outstanding seat layout gives lots of room. Flew a 777. Crew was very friendly and efficient. This is more roomy than any U.S. or British 747 I used to fly. The person in front of me fully reclined their seat and it had no impact on my comfort. I am 6 feet tall and this was great."

Cons: "food has declined its quality. not clear how to get diet food for people with food allergies crew less diligent and attentive than in other turkish flights"

Pros: "Good service and good food"
Cons: "Small seating for such a long flight, but overall not bad"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."

Pros: "Not a lot of options as far as the entertainment was concerned. The food was really good and the staff really courteous. However the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No leg space Not a lot of TV shows"

Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew...i forgot to reserve my vegetariano meal, but the crew provided for me.."

Pros: "Very good service, food, equipment and timeliness"

Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
Cons: "I was tired and fell asleep instead of watching more movies :)"
