Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Best crew we’ve ever had."
Cons: "Qatar website needs work"
Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."
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."
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Excellent food choices, multiple meals, very fast boarding process, comfortable seats that recline much more than US domestic flights"
Cons: "My movie was a bit dicey, but thankfully I wanted to sleep anyway"
Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"

Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class for the first time in my life. The food was good, and plentiful, in both classes. The stewards were accessible and friendly, the seats were comfortable. The movie selection was good"

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"
Pros: "Great service, alcohol selection"
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the attendants were very nice and cordial on flight. I would love to fly again but next time with my children for a vacay."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great."
Cons: "The flight was crowded, no overhead bin space from passengers putting coats and jackets in the bin instead of under their seats. I was in the middle seat between two large men breathing down on me while they slept. It was a nightmare. On a flight that long the seats shouldn’t be that close in proximity nor should larger passengers be allowed to sit in seats too small for their body type. That’s not discrimination that’s logical."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."

Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE."
Pros: "The ground crew is helpful in fixing our seats. Boarding procedures are smooth and overall journey is comfortable"

Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Pros: "Wish the crew cleaned the toilet room and replenished toilet paper"
Cons: "Plane flight got delayed until 6pm from 10:30am. What."
Pros: "Crew were amazing despite all the delays throughout the day"
Cons: "The weather lol"
Cons: "Your staff needs to utilize better communication. I scheduled the first flight of the day, and it was delayed. We were stuck on the tarmac for an hour without anyone telling us what was going on. We had to return to the gate to refuel and we left at the time we were suppose to arrive to Charlotte."
Cons: "The flight attendant didn’t allow me to put my only one personal item I had (with no carry on) to the locker! He allows people from other seats to put their laguagges into my compartment!"
Pros: "Nice new 737-800 w/ comfy seats, but the plane was nearly 40 mins late due to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight was fine, just be on-time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The American Airlines crew in Houston gave multiple people the wrong information regarding checked luggage for our connecting flight. Because the flight from NYC was over an hour delayed and the misinformation, several people missed the connecting flight. Hobby closes at a certain hour so I now have to wait until tomorrow morning to retrieve my carry on luggage the American Airlines MADE me check because of the group I was in. I called American Aurlines customer service line and they were not helpful. I will never fly American again."
Pros: "Multiple delays. Ended up taking off after my initial anticipated arrival time. No snacks or food available on the flight either just made for a very poor experience."
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Pros: "Back of the seat media great."
Cons: "Wi find not free."
Cons: "Cabin was like an icebox. People were wrapping up in sweaters and jackets. Many raised hands observed attempting to close the overhead vents. Multiple complaints to flight crew yielded a minor improvement but it was still on comfortably cool."
Pros: "I loved the movie options, It really made it a great experience."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "Arrived a little early and without incident."
Cons: "Flight attendant had a problem with my wife asking for Coke Zero. There was one can left and she was reluctant to serve it to her."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive."
Cons: "Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?"
Pros: "VEry good Cabin crew and the plane was reasonable new"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and pleasant"
Cons: "No IFE, bug not a big deal I had my own."
Pros: "Nice flight once we finally boarded!"
Cons: "Flight was late causing me to run for my connecting international flight in LAX."
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "Food, entertainment. Comfort, crew. On time flight."
Cons: "A hot breakfast would have been nice."
Pros: "New plane, all kinds of entertainment choices including new movies, great flight crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "American check in software was down when we got to the airport. Created a very large line. Did not delay boarding, even though passengers still had to go through customs before reaching the departure gates. Had a bit of jog to make sure I was able to get on the plane."
Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."
Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "This is a old 767 I was on. No individual TV's. The reading lights never worked. I chanced it on buying the wifi for $19 dollars which turned out to be super fast and I was able to stream movies. Meal and drinks and beer were included. But no way to charge your phone with out a car charger. This plane had no AC ports."
Cons: "I liked the food was included and beer."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Wish the plane had been equipped with personal entertainment screens on the seatbacks."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
Cons: "The kiosk had no where to enter my DoD number to get precheck. There was also no option to select military baggage. Due to the lack of options on the kiosk I had to wait in the customer service line for almost an hour. The flight was fine. Then my baggage turned out to be flying on a much later flight so it has to be shipped to me. I am very unsatisfied and disappointed with this airline."
Pros: "Bottom tier entertainment provided"
Cons: "Advertised wifi not functional. Limited TV access (1 8" tv for every 12-16 seats) poor programming random NBC clips and partial episodes) and terrible movie. No selection/plane tracker"
Cons: "The flight being delayed & then cancelled at the last second"
Cons: "Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to a "computer problem" that was subsequently deemed to be eligible for a paperwork fix."
Pros: "Not happy ."
Cons: "No good communication in why flight was cancelled or delayed . I personally had family traveling far to pick me up at the airport and it was very inconvenient on all my flights with American Airlines."
Cons: "No food. No entertainment"
Cons: "Still waiting to get on it"
Pros: "The pilot acknowledged we had to wait an extra 25 min which he made up by stepping on it .... Or giving it more juice I guess . The good thing is even though we boarded late we arrived on time but no gates where available."
Cons: "I choose my seat to accommodate a physical condition. My seat was changed at the last minute and that made the flight very uncomfortable."
