Pros: "Qatar beats every US based airline, hands down! The planes are clean and modern with better seats, leg room, technology, food and staff.

I cannot say enough about the experience and wood recommend to anyone traveling to destinations served by this airline."

Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly and helpful, easy to communicate with Great movie options The 13.5 hr plane had very few passengers so I was given an entire row of 3 seats to myself Food is generally good -- Haagen-Dazs ice cream was a plus!"
Cons: "Second flight boarded an hour late, though it was never listed as delayed (a bit confusing) 4 hour plane had very little leg space"
Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."
Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."
Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"
Cons: "The Qatar stuff at Nairobi airport was very rude when I tried to ask for their help. She was extremely inpatient and showed us angry face. Totally disappointed and not expected from an airline claimed to be one of the best."
Pros: "no time now"
Cons: "no time now"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Pros: "Crew was great; plenty of space to stretch out"
Pros: "I liked everything about it."
Cons: "My trip was to long but it wasn't there fault. I was so tired."
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."
Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Cons: "Boarding was horrible with those disorganized people that keeps telling you please sit while waiting for the gate to open AND THERE IS NO SEAT (in front of the gate) SO THEY ASK YOU TO SIT WHAILE THE NEAREST SEAT THAT AVAILABLE ARE TO FAR AND THEY ARE ALL OCCUPIED."
Pros: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."
Pros: "The Boing 777."

When I saw the gentleman at the counter opposite the check in, he made his effort to contact his colleague to come all the way back to the check in counter to check my bags and get me on the flight! I saw that they really worked hard to help me! I am extremely grateful and impressed! I will forever LOVE Turkish airlines!"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"

Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent, crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent, and I really appreciated the small care packages handed out (with lip balm, slippers, toothbrush/paste, socks, and eye cover)."
Cons: "About 8 hours into the flight the restrooms became very, VERY unclean--urine on the floors, sinks clogged, smelled terrible. More restroom maintenance was needed throughout this long flight. I thought this airline was the nicest I have been on save this one issue. It would be great if Turkish Airlines could resolve it in the future! Additionally the boarding process in Istanbul was like herding cattle. People weren't seated according to boarding group and it was absolute mayhem--no single file line, people shoving past one another to get seated first on the same plane."

Cons: "On this trip with Turkish Airlines, I had bought two tickets but my girlfriend had to change her plans and was unable to fly with me. I thought that was fine and I would be able to sit next to the empty seat. But as soon as we boarded they moved a person into that empty seat which i had paid for. It was very disappointing because I have always liked Turkish in the past."

Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."

Pros: "free large movie selection. good food with some Turkish flair. super friendly staff. power port for electronics. Istanbul is a very busy airport hub. This time, we had no delays, but we have before."
