Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The crew at check in was really inconsiderate and has given us false information! Despite of what documents were required and submitted I was not allowed to board the plane."
Pros: "Yeah everything was good flight timing was very accurate I loved their service"
Cons: "Hotel or a waiting area should be arranged in case of flight delay"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Cons: "Needs more improvement"
Pros: "All okey except earphones issue .. doesn’t works to be connected"
Pros: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."

Pros: "All crews are helpful especially to parents traveling with young kid."
Cons: "More variety of food would be great"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the service social excellent. The Seat were so cramp, the best sales point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"
Cons: "The 14 hour flight lacked wifi access and there was no sense of importance to investigate by the crew. In an era when downtime is utilized to stay ahead of work, strong wifi is one of the most crucial requirements for me to elect an airline. Even if all else is good, poor wifi is a deal killer."
Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."
Pros: "Overall great service!"
Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"
Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."
Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Cons: "arrived late, causing connection stress"
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."
Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."
Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"
Pros: "i had to wait for a wheelchair a long as i requested long time ago. i hate this flight"
Cons: "i had to wait for a wheelchair a long as i requested long time ago. i hate this flight"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Cons: "Need completely replacement with expert crew"
Pros: "Service. Kindness"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

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". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

Pros: "Nothing, three hour delay"
Cons: "Why don’t they let people off the plane when they know there is a maintenance problem. They just lie to you and keep pushing the delay back when they could have let us get off the plane and get food. It’s ridiculous how much they keep BS’ing u"

Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Pros: "Good personnel"
Cons: "No individual video screens, no choice of movies - as if we're back in the 1990s! Unheard of for a transcontinental flight! Be sure to bring your own entertainment! Gluten Free breakfast was useless - yoghurt which I couldn't eat + underripe fruit. Be sure to bring your own!"
Pros: "Timing was on point. Majority of the staff was friendly. Wifi with gogoflight and as I am a T-Mobile Customer is definitely a big good point."

Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "Getting there safe and sound"
Cons: "We didn't fly FinAir, it was American Airlines"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"

Cons: "I was supposed to be there right now, but I'm still waiting in Chicago for my connecting flight to Dayton that was delayed."
Cons: "On time , pleasant"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Pros: "i liked that the flights were right on time."

Pros: "Everything was pretty decent.. Best part was the price.. Boarding was good staff was good"
Cons: "Wasn't enough room.. kind of tight.. Couple more inches all around would have been perfect though"
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
