I like that it was through United Airline, which I’m a member of so I got to board a littler earlier

Staff felt embarrassed for what they were being asked to do

A United supervisor at the Leon terminal informed me that my 'smart' luggage was not allowed. I have traveled with it all over the world for the past 2 years, including to Leon in a United flight 2 days prior. I have also disabled the battery with a clearly marked OFF switch inside and never actually use it. However the memo I was shown was unambiguous and logic was not an option. So I asked for a screwdriver to remove the battery, The supervisor said no and proceed to treat me as a criminal. After one of the staff lent me tools and I removed the battery the supervisor asked for my name but off we went to board our flight. Before boarding however, my wife and I were called in for a 'random' security inspection. The experience was very unpleasant. It was discrimination and retaliation by someone abusing their authority. Very dissapointed on the United staff and their customer service.

I did a web checkin for my flight number QR501 Hyderabad to Doha inspire of doing a web checkin I had to wait for 2 hours to get a boarding pass. Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option. There was no apology from any of the staff. No one values the time of the people who chose Qatar making it a very bad experience overall

Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay.

The crew was outstanding, polite, and professional.

Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?

Since the flight was an international connection I had to retrieve my luggage and then drop it for the next flight. United Airlines did not build in enough time between the flights for the time it took their baggage handlers to send up our luggage. They need a much better system with the baggage delivery. I had to run to make my flight because their baggage handlers took so much time.

Booked flight to go & care for my 94 year old mother in Germany. She died 6 weeks before planned departure. I immediately advised Lufthansa, asking for cancellation of flight and reimbursement. They cancelled my reservation immediately. While LH received my payment on Nov. 21st, it is now more than 3 months later and I still have not received reimbursement. I am very upset and disappointed with LH's unresponsiveness to my request.

I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance.

Seats were comfortable, they were aware of alternative meal requests, professional, comfortable temperature

When dropping my bag at check in counter, the employee at the counter asked, somewhat intrusively, what the extra fee I paid was for. When I told her it was for the Al Mourjan lounge in Doha, her facial response and attitude came across as judgemental, and was not appropriate

They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware

Webjet, after 3 failed booking attempts Webjets booking resulted in them booking me as “Josh” vs “Joshua” and South African Airlines wouldn’t allow me to check in. After webjet refused to fix the issue claiming it would take a week to fix, South African airlines forced me to pay $2,700 to repurchase the same ticket in order to board the flight.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
