Pros: "Qatar airlines treated us like we were in first class the flight attendants were A+++"
Cons: "Everything was perfect other than the food was not so great i had stock ache the entire flight."
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."

Pros: "Love the service of qattar"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Pros: "The layover was hell. They put me in a warehouse with wooden benches for beds. Never again"
Cons: "Horrible service. The US part of the journey was fine but the rest was aweful."
Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."
Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"

Cons: "Nothing it was great"
Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"
Pros: "Excellent flight , seats, food"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."

Pros: "I like everything about the flight"
Cons: "Flight was very long"
Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"
Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."

Cons: "Not very comfortable seating. A couple of not so friendly flight attendants. Crew on the ground in Doha not very attentive or cooperative"
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The personnel were at the CAI Airport and in the plae were just wonderful. I hope i will have the same experience the second leg if the trip from DOH to DFW"
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
