Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Cons: "Did not like the entertainment"
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: "Service was on point. The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Lovely flight, start to finish. Attentive staff (but not too much so) and seats were comfortable, even in economy. Smooth front and back end to travels as well."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better."
Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"
Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."
Cons: "Dirty old plane"
Pros: "Much better than the flight from Mumbai to Doha. The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable for economy class for a journey as long as these ."
Pros: "'Low cal meal for you?' Sorry embarrassing. Nothing low cal really bread butter potato corn thing ... kinda gross, just ate rice which is not low cal. Still waiting for my luggage ... driver will now have waited over an hour... sorry ..."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Out of mango juice and the plane was too old."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "First of all, I want to preface this by saying that virtually every airline is better than the major ones working in the US (American, United, and Delta), and Qatar Airways is amongst this number. The entertainment selection was excellent, the best of any flight I've ever been on. The flight attendants were excellent, again, much better than those on American carriers (I am American, FYI)."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Of course, we know this about airline food, BUT I have been on Qatar Airways flights with GOOD food in the past, so I know it can be better. Also, I sat in the baby section, which also happens to be where they put long-legged people. This is no one's fault, but suffice to say, do NOT sit next to 4 5-month olds for a 15-hr flight! Interestingly, since all flight attendants were women, about 50% of the flight did listen to them since there were many conservative Arabs onboard from Qatar or Saudi Arabia (i.e., those who are taught not to listen to or respect women). This made for some frustrating sites to witness but it's obviously not the airline's fault. Poor women!"
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
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: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Pros: "The service was great"
Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."
Cons: "Full flight"
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Cons: "The seats were nice but so tiny! Very VERY uncomfortable."
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."
Pros: "The pilot’s landing was phenomenal."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very polite. Both of us are blind, and they told us the information we needed – how far away is the nearest exit row. Otherwise they treated us like everyone else!"
Cons: "Mechanical issues late 16 hours, no compensation only breakfast voucher slept in a cot in airport lost luggage."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination"
Cons: "Flight was turbulent, plane was messy, crew had a hard time noticing when passengers needed anything."
Cons: "It would have been helpful if American Airlines would notify passengers when they have selected a window seat where no window exists. I am very broad shouldered and that extra 3 inch well the window creates is crucial for me. Terrible 4 1/2 hours in a very uncomfortable position."
Cons: "I've flown American airlines twice this year. The service and flights have been very good. One thing I'd like to see is a variety of snack options."
Pros: "Crew was great. Turbulence not so much but overall they did great!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Cons: "The online information was inaccurate on where the pet relief areas were located and I nearly missed my flight as a result. Need to install more ESA /Supprt animal relief areas to make It more friendly to travelers. Very stressful experience overall"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Cons: "Even though we pay exorbinant prices: The poorest selection of non-meat vegetarian food."
Cons: "I tried to change my seat to an available window seat several times after online check in opened using the app and consistently received error messages so ended up stuck in a middle seat."
Pros: "Excellent Travel"
Cons: "Our original flight was delayed then cancelled. After assigning to another flight, it was delayed and gate changed about 10 times and was finally cancelled after it was boarded and left gate after 2am due to engine problem. We had to cancel our trip since it was a short trip for a funeral and we had missed it. AA offered no compensation and no apology (not during the whole night of delays and cancels)."
Pros: "Once we boarded in philly"
Cons: "The amount of time on the ground"
Pros: "The flight was delayed. They were very proactive in telling us in advance and keep us updated. Unfortunately we had several problems but at least they were transparent and honest."
Cons: "A large number of screens, jacks, USB connections, etc. were not working. Clearly an older plane. The on demand video system was one of the worst I have used in a long time."
Cons: "I missed both meals because I was asleep. I usually get woken up by the flight staff, but this time I just missed them. The first time, I woke up on my own to see everyone finishing their food, so I asked for a meal and I got one; the second time, I woke up to see the trash being collected, but never got a chance to ask for my meal because no member of the flight staff passed me again. I landed in LA at midnight and was starving."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Pros: "The entertaining, the aircraft"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "No food served on a 5+ hour flight...you had to pay extra for it and it didn't look like it was worth it. You also had to pay to choose your seat to be with other members of your group....this is all after paying for the flight itself! For the trip to Ireland from LA, for a group of 6, it was another $1000+! Just another way to get a few more bucks because they can! :("
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Cons: "Couldn't take it due to delay, delay, cancel at RDU"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "There wasn’t any entertainment but that was ok."

Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."
Pros: "Old plane"
Cons: "I don't know if I need to contact american airlines directly or what. But this is the 3rd flight that has been delayed with no reason given or for whatever the reason was tonight. Its obsurd. I booked a flight on Alaska Airlines specifically because american airlines had the issue of delays. Then come to find out, the flight WASN'T on Alaska...but its affiliate. It would be really nice to get some answers."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
