Among all the international travels, I think Cathay was the best followed by Emirates. Qatar seems to be at the bottom of the list in my experience. They did not even have a strategy to house long layover guests and also would not grant visas. Still using Covid excuse, as if their country is so clear and clean of the pandemic.
The only thing that really bothered me was an obnoxiously loud and annoying child sitting next to her father, who had headsets on and made no attempt to discipline the child. I thought maybe the staff should have said something to him in a polite manner
Only had fish option for food. I am allergic to fish and there was no veg option
Very good service, all were ok/excellent
Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bathrooms could have some lotion for dry skin"
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals. Tight fit to be maneuvering, literally rubbing elbows."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding process, great Tv episodes selection"
Cons: "Staff was slow to remove plates after eating"
Cons: "Delay delay delay and i have to stay in hotel"
Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."
Cons: "The food. The vegetarian meals were both noodles. And the meals were not very healthy. Too high calorie. I couldn’t figure out how to customize my meals On the Qatar app"
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Pros: "The flight attendants were outstanding. Anticipated requests, were readily available and attentive without hovering over you. QSuite was superb. Food was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was fantastic."
Pros: "The crews are awesome"
Pros: "Yes crew was very polite and seat were comfortable. Roomy enough to stretch leg for height of people up to 5'7"
Cons: "overall everything was good. Toilet could have been little roomier. little cranked up. People with overweight would have tough time.."
Pros: "Seat was sufficiently comfortable to get some rest and I was very ready to be done with the flight when the plane landed."
Cons: "Breakfast option - eggs and a sausage had much to be desired. Other meals were fine."
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Super check in, great entertainment options"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not very helpful. Food was average at best."
Pros: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Cons: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."
Pros: "I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice."
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful! Easy smooth flight, made 9 hours fly by!"
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best airlines and they serve you like a 5 stars hotel"
Cons: "The problem is when they linked a flights frome other airlines companies. Under ( one world ) On this flight the were linked with sirlankian airlines The flight was full and a lot of older asian on flight they don’t respect people and speak loudly The smell was not good enough"
Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"
Pros: "Overall services"

Pros: "The flight attendants was nicer on this flight then the US to Doha flight"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "The staff was very accommodating and were able to provide me a seat with more leg room last minute."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! Terrible customer service. Would not offer us complimentary airport hotel stay for a 19 hour layover. Wanted us to switch and pay to an earlier flight. Never again."
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"
Pros: "'Low cal meal for you?' Sorry embarrassing. Nothing low cal really bread butter potato corn thing ... kinda gross, just ate rice which is not low cal. Still waiting for my luggage ... driver will now have waited over an hour... sorry ..."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful, spacious legroom."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "they have a good movie selection"
Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Pros: "The food was perfect"
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Cons: "No entertainment"
KLM is never consistent with services. Sometimes you get lucky with great comfort and other times you are forced to squeeze in a box for a seat. The food is always subpar and they have become so unfriendly when you need help. But hey, they are always on time and they have good connections.
Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."

Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."

Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
On both legs of my trip, going out and coming home, the flights were delayed. I had to run through PHX to get from Term A to B because the delay left me with <20 mins to departure. Staying consistent, the departing flight was late and I made the flight. Seems that a schedule is just a suggestion on American
Communication and updates and leaving on time.
Pros: "3 hr delay"
Pros: "Check-in started a bit late due to late arriving incoming flight but the crew at the gate as well as in the plane did their best to speed the process. Flight was smooth, lande ontime despite taking off nearly 20 minutes late. Captain kept us informed when, through no fault of American Airlines there was a delay at the gate. Overall well done in these trying times."
Cons: "It will be nice when things are back to normal and actual food is served on flights of 4 or more hours duration."
Pros: "Crew were lovely, let me sit in the cockpit. Drinks/snacks were rapidly distributed to facilitate sleep during the redeye, legroom in my extra legroom seat was sufficient, and bathrooms were large. Also, we left swiftly and arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of IFE screens was disappointing and the seats had zero padding."
Pros: "That we got there on time. And landed safely."
Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "The crew was so rude"
Cons: "Seats were changed twice for this flight. It was very cold on the flight"
Cons: "Flight status"
Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"
Pros: "Crew was as good as can be and helpful during boarding."
Cons: "Chair seat belts weren’t long enough for me I’m 6’2 290 I know I’m not the average size but it wouldn’t hurt to add a little length."
Pros: "There are outlets and the entertainment portal was very cool."
Cons: "Maybe load first class then from back to front. When you have so many people who need to get to the back with a narrow isle it's tough. The gate agent was very short with me but not necessarily unpleasant."
Pros: "Super nice crew, 787 plane, entertainment"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Very little legroom"
Cons: "Yo actually take off on time"
Pros: "Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Having a disability is difficult enough but this team went above and beyond."
Cons: "Reaching Charlotte terminal I was extremely disappointed. The gate attendant seamed to only want to make excuses as to why there was no wheelchair available. (Short staffed) she didn’t offer me a seat or apologize for no availability. Costumer service should be number one when you work with people everyday."
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"
Cons: "My bags were not checked all the way to my destination, I had to get them re-tagged and checked for this part of the trip and the American Agent was EXTREMELY rude and made us pay oversized bagge fees even though our baggage was within the Qantas allowance, the main carrier for our flight."
Pros: "People were ok"
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess at this airport. Feel sorry for anyone with accessibility issues. Stairs to all planes."
Pros: "Agents and flight crews are great."
Cons: "Too many people for too little space in gate areas in Phoenix. Not enough outlets or seating...or just space."
Cons: "Additional cost for luggage"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Pros: "AA was great, the only issues we had was 100s of screaming babies and rude people that cut the line....Not much AA can do about that."
Pros: "On time flight. Early arrival."
Cons: "Seated in first class but the arm of the seat was broken."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight, causing me to be much further delayed coming home. Spent all today miserably tired at work. I also sat in front of a very obnoxious man who was very loud and no body was telling him anything about video chatting on his speaker phone during take off."
Pros: "Drink service was good"
Cons: "take off late 90 min.. almost lost connection in NY"
Pros: "seat and seating was nice, boarding was efficient, movies okay"
Cons: "while the dinner was okay, the stromboli which came as a snack of sorts was terrible and caused me to be "on the run" for the next 12 hours. the last five hours of the flight and then at home were awful"
Pros: "Everything was great on the flight from the boarding to the service of all the staff before during and after the flight. The only major issue I had was once I arrived in Honolulu my luggage was damaged. I should’ve filed a claim while at the airport at the time but didn’t realize it until I got to the hotel."
Cons: "I would highly suggest that you do a better job of luggage and baggage handling. This is the second time I’ve had luggage damage on American Airlines flight."
Pros: "I was really impressed by the dinner and breakfast choices. I liked that the plane had several bathrooms, and great-looking staff. It’s sad to fly somewhere and see staff not care about their appearance. They were also very attentive and personable."
Cons: "I’m a tall person so sitting through a 9-hour flight was hard for me. I tried to go to sleep but leg room was an issue. I sat in the middle row in the back center section of the plane."
Pros: "The flight was calm and clean. Not much turbulence. The flight staff was polite and there was plenty of room."
Cons: "The food was horrible and the seats were a little uncomfortable but everything else was pretty good"
Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Cons: "Not once but twice we boarded, sat on the plane for an hour and then were asked to deplane due to mechanical issues. It's understandable for one plane to have problems, but absurd to have issues again with the second plane. After all this, our flight was delayed until the early hours of the morning, leaving many passengers to sleep in the airport. It was uncomfortable, disappointing, frustrating, and the crew seemed very unsympathetic."
Pros: "Flight operated safely and on time."
Cons: "As an Executive Platinum member, there was no recognition by the first class cabin attendants. There were no pre-departure beverages provided to anyone in the first class cabin after boarding, and no pre-arrival beverages were provided. Mediocre at best for a 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Pros: "the crew is fantastic"
Cons: "normally a meal and other entertainment services are included when upgrading to first class. it even indicated such items would be included when i purchased my upgrade. Very disappointed i wasted my money."
Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."
Pros: "The plane left on time."
Cons: "At Heathrow -- The passengers were sent thru three security checks to get into the boarding lounge...after the TSA standard check. There were no bathrooms, no water and not enough seats for everyone. It was hot, loud and there was no exit once you entered. This is one of the worst pre-boarding situations I have ever had, ever. The security people were unnecessarily slow and difficult."
