Airline reviews

Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was delicious. The sit was comfortable with a lot of legroom."

Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"

Cons: "The flight is too long"

Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "The food and crew were great"
Cons: "Older plane the tv panels were faded"

Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"

Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

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: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."

Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

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: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

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: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"

Cons: "Luggage items are missing."

Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."

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."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

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: "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: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"

Cons: "This was my first time with Turkish airline , the airbus from Chicago to İstanbul was quite old and seats were not comfortable while the plan form İstanbul to Islamabad was perfect . Thank you Turkish airline"

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."

Cons: "Foddd no gud"

Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."

Pros: "Convenience"

Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Nice and smooth journey"

Pros: "Perfect was everything"
Cons: "Prices was high"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

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

Cons: "The seat was hard for a long trip"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great. Especially when the person chosen to speak has a heavy accent and it’s competing with other announcements. My over 50 ears can’t make it out."

Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"

Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"

Cons: "Not comfortable at all, doesn’t feel like any upgrade from regular economy seat."

Cons: "Time to bring in dual class flights!"

Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"

Pros: "On time, clean plane, friendly service."
Cons: "The plane flew at a low altitude, which felt odd, but I am not a pilot and while I fly a lot commercially, I know that this short hop over open water probably has reasons for not going up to 30,000 feet. The fligh was smooth and the discomfort was based only on my comparison of this flight to longer, trans-Atlantic flights."

Cons: "2 of my 4 bags, which I checked in, were broken during my travel."

Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."

Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Cons: "When a couple of ladies boarded and were going to be seated in the exit isle. going by the color of their skin and the clothes they were wearing, the stewardess with long blonde hair, assumed they did not speak English, and rather rudely told them that they should not be in this row. To which they responded in prefect English. told her they were comfortable with the emergency seat and helping passengers. She kept pushing them and finally they switched with a couple other passengers. VERY RUDE!!!!"

Cons: "Came early to counter & my passport expires August 9th, so they refuse to help me & did not let me go on board even though I had approval from Jordanian country to fly there.

Pros: "They were really good with checking in my excess baggage and my two cats. Cats travelled well and arrived as expected. Check in at O'Hare was very friendly. In the air, flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly. All luggage and cats arrived! The plane from O'Hare to Austria was very nice!"
Cons: "I think I have gotten used to Asiana's and Korean Airlines'. It just didn't seem to measure up to their business class service. The food (which has been highly rated!) I found to be just mediocre. Maybe it's because I was living in Asia for eight years and had become more accustom to asian cuisine?? I didn't love the seat either. When you recline, your feet are cramped inside a small area under the seat in front of you. It was cramped. The ability to customize the seat recline was limited. I like being able to move the head and feet into my own customized position. The business class seats from Vienna to Amman felt like coach."

Pros: "There was nothing to like. Horible experience will never fligh with Austrian Air again"
Cons: "The flight was long delayed, there was no explanation or any sort of pasenger notification about the delay. When I boarded the overhead luggage was full could not find space to secure my bags. The flight attendant was very rude did not assist me and made me wait. Other people traveling without luggage pushed me to pass by. I was told not very nice things. The flight was overbooked and overall horible experience."

Pros: "There werecseats available at gate area to wabit for plane."
Cons: "Airport overcrowded, checkin at Austrian Airlines horrible - one agent quoated 117 Euro for oversize suitcase when fee was actually 50 Euro. (Note: same suitcase accepted by Lufthansa without extra charge. Security check also excessive and bureaucratic without giving sense of better safety."

Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"

Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"

Pros: "Vino in Plastic cups from 1L"
Cons: "Could Food"

Pros: "Nothing stood out compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Flight"

Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Speaking of friendly sky. Great!"

No luggage until yesterday.It never happen before.But in top of everything my plans in Albania were messed up.I have to pospne my return flight 1 week and the charges are unbelievable tooo much 650 dollars.I am not stopping here.Thank you."

Pros: "People at the desk didn't know or don't wanna say much why we have no plane"
Cons: "I arrived at Vienna on time but to Skopje we had no plans and we hade to wait till 13:40 to board"

Cons: "The aircraft was very old and smelled badly. The toillets didn't work properly and were dirty."

Pros: "Drinks were included"
Cons: "No entertainment available not even to pay for. Wifi is overpriced"

Pros: "Everything was great except seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "No stops"

Pros: "Would fly with them anytime."

Pros: "After departing the cluster fk that is O'Hare airport it's such a pleasure to interact with Vienna and Austrian Air. I had 'only' an hour to make the connection, and yet all, that is all, formalities took no more than 10 minutes. I had plenty of time to spare. Waiting area at the gate had plenty of seating and the staff was professional and courteous. We had to gate check bags as the plane was a regional turboprop, but everything went very smoothly."

Pros: "Very carrying crew, kind and attentive"
Cons: "Not too many choices for entertainment, a lot of Asian movies. Food was OK"

Pros: "They lost my baggage and nobody cares.They charging good money for extra bags but they have only sorry for they mistake. If you plan your important trip to Europe please don't use this company,so you can avoid unpleasant experience."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The service was good, everyone from the staff extremely friendly and overall the flight was very quick."

Pros: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss. short flight, no time to get dissapointments, but I did not expect some anyway."

Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed"

Pros: "Most things were OK"
Cons: "Except a crying baby near me, during first half of the flight"

Cons: "Plane rescheduled, left 55 minutes later than anticipated. I was already preparing for having my luggage lost."

Cons: "After dinners the crew did not remove trays fora long time preventing movement. When the finally did there was a rush for the toilets. Having some toilets out of order compounded the problem Food is ok at best. The morning muffin was terrible A poor comparison to our flight last year on Turkish air"

Pros: "The check- in experience was simple and the seat entertainment system was excellent!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, like any economy class seating, wider seats and more recline ability would be nice."

Cons: "Our baggage did not make it to our final destination"

Pros: "The boarding and exiting of the aircraft was smooth and organized. I really do prefer that passengers be strictly monitored when boarding the plane according to their seats. It really does make sense to board the plane from the rear forward. I realize airlines feel like they have to make their business class passengers feel special, but it really doesn't make sense for passengers to be climbing over one another."
Cons: "I left my entertainment at home in a mad rush to depart which is very unusual for me. As a result, I had to rely on Austrian Airlines' copyright licenses, and they were less than satisfactory. Fortunately, I'm flying back with Lufthansa, so I hope there will be more variety there. The lavatory at the back of the plane was filthy by the end of the flight. I don't understand why the flight attendants feel to good to clean the lavatories for their passengers. We are stuck on a flying can for 9-10 hours and deserve to have clean lavatories during that time. At one point, I was thirty and approached the back of the plane. When I entered the rear galley, the ladies looked at me like I was intruding. If self-service is not available for passengers, then flight attendants should be prepared to serve their customers."

Pros: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."

Cons: "I wish the flight lasted longer than the usual 8 hours, such a great experience!"

Pros: "The crew was the only good thing about this flight/airline."
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Austrian airlines. I was not able to pick my own seat even after I checked in and the actual seats on the plane were extremely small and uncomfortable. This made it impossible for me to enjoy mi flight. A 5'6' person should not have any issues but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. The seat was very narrow - it felt cramped and as if they turned a space designed for 2-4-2 into a 3-4-3. When I called the customer service before the flight to get a seat next to my husband who had a separate reservation, it took about 4 calls before anyone even mentioned that out reservations could be linked together. will not fly Austrian airlines again."
