Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the plane was empty so could move for comfort"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the airplane was empty, but assigned seats to fill rows while spouting nonsense about social distancing"
Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours, rude staff at the JFK airport and then v choppy flight, delayed even more by waiting for an arrival gate in FLL."
Pros: "Great seat, cabin crew was fine."
Cons: "Too much confusion trying to just find a shower in the lounge"
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "I like the guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind."
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "Be able to select seats online within 24hours of flight for free"
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."
Pros: "Speeding of departure after boarding"
Cons: "Flight delayed again. Flight was delayed due to “preparations “ but the plane was at the gate for 3 hours before boarding. Did not make sense. Flight was warm in the plane."
Pros: "Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "I booked the flight thinking it was with ANA , it was on United which is a full step below in quality. My bad!"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Disappointed with some of flight attendants. ANA used to provide best customer service."
Pros: "Crew - excellent service orientation"
Cons: "No storage space for small personal items like phone, magazine etc International Food choice very limited size of seats small"
Pros: "The meals were healthy Japanese meals with lots of vegetables"
Pros: "Crew and service were top notch. Everything done efficiently and flawlessly. Food was good. Flight was smooth and trouble free,"
Cons: "Nine hours in tight confinement just cannot be fun. There is no way that great service can fix the problem of being kept in an extremely small and uncomfortable space. Business and first class are unaffordable, so there is no solution. I'd fly more if it were not so painful."
Pros: "Food and entertainment is great."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old, no bidet in the bathroom (the newer planes has it)"
Pros: "Staff was very courtaeous .they were very polite and helpful.Hindu veg. food was nice."

Pros: "Overall, the staff was amazing, so as the food and cleanliness"

Pros: "Flat bed is wide and comfortable. Cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. The plane was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "Not sure because I have never had a better experience."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work on 3 of the 4 flights although all purportedly had it. Also didn’t work the majority of the time in the Business Class Lounge in Singapore. Food was mediocre both on flights and in the lounge. Movie selection could hardly have been worse."
Pros: "The crew, their professionalism and wide variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Air-conditioning was not working properly in the cabin and it felt warm. Seats are a tad uncomfortable and not wide enough on the 777."
Pros: "Being one of the best airlines in the world, you can really go wrong with these guys. Always a good experience."
Cons: "As always, economy class is getting tighter. But economy here is still better than the western airlines."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."
Pros: "Qatar's consistency has always appealed to me. Being in travel and tourism myself, I appreciate climb to maintain global standards with the kind of diversity your operations rely on. One cannot achieve this without clarity in vision, mission and action. Covid has challenged us all beyond words but kudos to you in still being resilient to the test."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. They took care of the customers with passion and energy. The Q suites are comfortable and one of the best seats out there."

Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Cons: "Check-in service at Ahmedabad was very bad. The staff there seems to be very disorganized. Took an hour to check-in may be 10-12 passengers ahead of me."
Cons: "The flight was excellent and the service was impeccable. The attention that they gave all the passengers including myself was excellent. Would Recomend to take Qatar from Bombay to Miami"
Pros: "Yes. Pillow cushion too firm"
Cons: "Food needs to be better. Very inconvenient schedule for flights to India from Europe."
Pros: "Short 4 hour flight, full - not one open seat Yet, the crew was super nice and efficient."
Pros: "Crew was good! Food was good! Boarding was on time !"
Cons: "Economy comfort could be better."
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Everything was excellent! It would be nice to have a slightly bigger seat

Pros: "Crew on airport at baggage is not helpful at Mumbai airport very poor"
Cons: "Good Guidance Proper behavior from airport crew"
Cons: "While boarding the flight from Dubai to Houston, no one announced about family boarding. About a quarter of the flight had boarded before we decided to get in the line ourselves, and they took us in without any questions. It would have been better if an announcement for family boarding was made. The Dubai to Houston crew could have been more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "Good food and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was confused and disorganized, but that seems to be a common problem with ground staff at all Indian airports"
Cons: "There is nothing to improve. I wish other airlines can learn from them."
Cons: "You don’t need to have seats next to lavatory. The area was stinking even before the plane took off."
Pros: "Ice entertainment is great"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Pros: "The ground crew at the Bombay airport was excellent. Specifically, Saurabh, Sharmilee etc. WE really appreciate their wholehearted support for an issue that came up at the airport. Keep up the good work of ground /check in group at Emirates in Bombay."
Cons: "The boarding was long drawn out process, done in two stages that started 2 hours before departure! Why does it have to be this painful?"
Cons: "Boarding announcements weren’t clear and boarding was not separated by zone."
