Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Qatar flight is no problem"

Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."

Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"

Cons: "All entertainment units were off."

Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"

Pros: "Completely satisfied. Excellent all the way!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank You."

Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."

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."

Pros: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."

Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"

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: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"

Cons: "long long long trip in the middle of the trip ther is no water to wash my hands"

Cons: "the flight was canceled."

Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."

Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"

Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."

Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"

Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."

Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the smooth comfortable flight. The plane was full but there was enough space for everyone to relax comfortably during the flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Pros: "The raw was empty and I could sleep whole 10 hours"
Cons: "Choice of movies and TV programs"

Pros: "uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Thank you"

Cons: "Was very satisfied with everything."

Cons: "Was very warm on the plane as certain times and even at the terminal, which we could control the fan blowing on us."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Quality of red wine"

Pros: "Everything:)"

Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."

Pros: "From start to finish there were no hiccups. It was a pleasant journey."

Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"

Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."

Cons: "Delayed longer than the flight time"

Pros: "The stewardess is very polite and accommodating n"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "I liked that the plane eventually came..."

Cons: "No WI-FI service during my return flight, limited options for tv news programs."

Cons: "the entertainment was broken, they didn't offer WIFI. the crew was very rude and crabby."

Cons: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."

Cons: "My Swiss flight from Stuttgar via Zurich to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."

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

Pros: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."

Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"

Pros: "Flight was good and everything worked out perfectly."

Pros: "Very organized airline. Friendly staff."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."

Cons: "."

Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"

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"

Pros: "Hi there, the gate for the flight was changed at the last minute and I missed the connecting flight from Frankfurt to Vienna. I was told by staff that there would be a 300 Euro fee, plus the cost of the next flight. This broke my heart. why I wouldn't I simply be put on standby and get on the next flight? I ended up travelling by to Vienna by train, over the course of the next several days. I am a lone woman with a developmental disability, travelling to Europe for the first time. It was very disappointing to be treated this way. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "I should have been put on the next connecting flight, rather than turned away to fend for myself in a foreign city."

Cons: "I specifically selected three seats for my Wife and two children ages 7 and 5. I did not fly back with them and at check in the three seats were confirmed on a boarding pass printed at their departure location. Upon checking in on the connecting flight in Vienna, the seat assignment had been completely disregarded and three seats located 10+ aisles apart were given to a family traveling together??????? This makes no sense and must be due to booking through a third party. Unacceptable and not worth the $40 per ticket savings."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. We took off a bit late, but landed on time. Staff was responsive."
Cons: "Mediocre breakfast. Entertainment wasn't great."

Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "except we could not do an online check-in"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "We were advised to arrive at the gate 45 minutes before departure. We waited an hour and a half more until we boarded. The plane was late on arrival but there were no announcements. No one knew what was going on or when we would board. There was no food served whatsoever. Just beverages. There was no entertainment."

Pros: "Unfortunately no good experience comes to my mind..... Only one! At boarding there was a Jewish girl, she was very nice and kind! I wish I could list here more positive!!!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the food was poor quality. You should pay attention to people who eat kosher and have an option available. Eventho I have marked it on my ticket I need kosher food it wasn't available. It is upsetting. It would be a must at every company, regardless of the service to have name tags for the employees!!! Mostly the flight attendants were kind, but as soon as i asked for something it seemed like they don't want to help or work at all. I understand I have traveled on the economy class but shouldn't make a difference how you treat the travelers. The pillows were dirty!!!!! Not only one, because I have asked for more......most of them! It is disgusting! Something must have been wrong with the headphones because the volume was on max when i tried to watch the move but barely could hear anything. I have flew with Lufthansa most of the time and in the future will chose them. Very disappointing that sooo many little things are interrupting a vacation."

Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."

Cons: "Poor service, will not fly again with this airline"

Pros: "Everything's"

Cons: "It took us 2 tries to get there due to weather and they had us waiting in the airport for 12 hours in the middle of the night. We first flew to Lviv and then they turned the plane around and came back as we were landing. I appreciate that they did this for safety reasons. When we got back however at 2:30am, they did not provide us with a hotel and just gave us blankets and pillows to sleep in the airport. They also offered us only a piece of bread with ham and cheese and a coffee for the next 12 hours until the new flight left. Not a pleasant experience."

Pros: "Staff was very kind. I'm not a needy person, but they offered continuous service."
Cons: "This is for Kayak's app- Usually I get a special meal request through the agent, but could not do it on Kayak's app, and Lufthansa and Austrian did not recognize my booking code from the ticket purchase confirmation email to do it on their website directly. Please look into both issues. This is for my whole trip and not the above mentioned destination."

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."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Should have more movie choices"

Cons: "Sarted 90 minutes late because there was no crew available for this flight. In the cabin we later learned that they had to keep their legal rest times. The issue I have, why was there no information as soon as this issue became clear ... lets say the evening before the flight?Why make everyone arrive at 5am at an airport if you know 12 hours earlier there will be a 90 minute delay?"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to wait in the airport with kids."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "0"

Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."

Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."

Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Cons: "Space for seats in such a long flight should have been bigger. Compared to other Asian airlines, AA seems to be thrifty on seat space."

Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Movies selection"

Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."

Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."

Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""

Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."

Pros: "on-time, very organized, fast checkin"
Cons: "cramp leg space"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"

Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"

Pros: "The plane landed on time."
Cons: "Beverage are limited, one of the crews was loud, the food was terrible. I made a reservation through japan airlines. If they do a codeshare, they should give the passengers equal advice."

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "Prefer ANA to JetStar!"

Pros: "The crews were very kind to young people."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Very comfortable and enough drink service."

Cons: "AA charges extra for a lot of the economy seats which they claim are "premium" but do not warrant the excessive price tag."

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."

Cons: "I bought tickets for JAL Japan Airlines but it was American Airlines !! If I know that when I buy tickets I don't buy it !! I will not buy tickets at KYAK anymore."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment consoles were nice with a great selection of recent movies, which was nice since the flight was 12 hours. The food was alright but nothing to write home about."
Cons: "The seating space was much more cramped than the JAL flight I took over to Japan. It was awkwardly close to your neighbor when getting adjusted with seat belts and such. This would have been OK for a shorter flight but a bit too close for comfort for a 12 hour one."

Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"

Pros: "Sears had more room than as medal, service and hospitality much improved over as. Dinner and breakfast were scrumptious and drink choices were abundant."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"

Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"

Pros: "We were delayed out of Tokyo and missed our connector into Tampa but the airline did a stellar job of being here at the gate with our new flight and boarding passes and also Did a great job makeing sure our luggage arrived in Tampa."
Cons: "Plane going over much better. Had better tv screens charging ports and seemed more comfortable. We were delayed 4 hours out of Tokyo but I know that just happens when you travel sometimes"

Pros: "- approachable staff - plane was insulated enough where I wasn't too cold - ample food options on flight"
Cons: "- plane was older and less comfortable - limited film selection - films only played at certain times so you had to wait in queue until the next showing started"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."

Pros: "The wifi service and very enthusiastic flight attendant!"
Cons: "The food was bad"

Cons: "Same as above"
