Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight.

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: "Coach seating on the plane from Nairobi to Qatar, for 5+ hour flight, very tight and cramped. Coach seating on flight from Qatar to NY was slightly bigger but not as spacious as coach seating on China Southern."
"First time I have flown AA in years and remembered why. They can never seem to recognize my AA Awards# but the marketing Dept sure can. So I never get flight credit. The crew was busy txting instead of being polite. I said hello, goodby, and thank you. Got no response back… as usual. I am a normal sized person but the seats are so small even I was uncomfortable. No drinks or real snacks on a 4.5 hr flight? Really? TSA precheck # not on passes even though entered when I purchased. Cherry on top, USB ports broken on all seats in my row… on both flights. WiFi sucks had to buy it just so it would work. At least the pilots know what they are doing. I’m going back to boycotting AA flights. Go Delta! Never have these issues when I fly them."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"

Cons: "Crew service; food and general customer service"
Pros: "We finally got here."
Cons: "Communication about the delay , which gate we were leaving from, having an entertainment system that worked (they said I could use my device with the app downloaded, but it did not work, I kept getting an error)."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "crew was good. plane was clean"
Cons: "terrible entertainment option. plane interior was old and only way to have entertainment was using my own device, which was a phone and has a small screen. on the way back it was great"
Pros: "There was a TV with entertainment. The fight to DR was terrible with no TV for some reason, in 2019"
Cons: "On line booked ticket in wrong name and they would not change or refund"
Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Cons: "Plane was late. Connection in Chicago was the worst"
Cons: "British Airways flight was carried by American Airlines. Planes were late, boarded one plane from the tarmac with no explanation, gate was changed 5 times without announcements. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment and food were great"
Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"
Pros: "Very good value for money. Excellent Business class with all the expected amenities. Friendly crew. Good (for airline norms) food. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Leave on time"
Pros: "Not much probably just that they came by twice with the drink cart."
Cons: "Very limited room in seats compared to other airlines. First class passengers enjoyed full meals while everyone in coach got a cookie. One tv for every few rows felt like I was flying in 2000 still. This is why American is behind JetBlue and Delta. I will pay more nd y time just not to fly American."
Pros: "Seat very small"
Pros: "Wasn't full, plenty of room. Free booze offered!"
Cons: "Delayed, crew didn't help couple to calm their children and restore morale"
Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."
Pros: "Direct flight Chicago to Paris."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Almost 2 hrs delay leaving Chicago forced us to miss train connection in Paris. Bad layover times to get back to the States, almost 9 hrs was the only choice available."

Cons: "Attitude of in flight crew terrible food"
Cons: "No free water on British Airways"
Pros: "On time, food service, good communication"
Cons: "Employee got us in the wrong terminal"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "I was sitting in an aisle seat, a guy with a backpack hit my forehead. I was massaging my forehead and felt wetness. I was bleeding, the passengers next to me gave napkins and I pressed it to stop the bleeding. The flight attendant gave napkins and ice, the pilot was informed. He had Atlanta fire and rescue meet me at the gate upon landing."
Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."
Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Movies selection poor and games could be better and touch screen not working properly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 1 hour, the cabin crew was slightly rude and cold. Did not feel welcome"
Pros: "Not over crowded"
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "Seated next to two obese people and when combined with narrow seats made it all but impossible to sit comfortably on my seat. Flight was delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to missing part. When flight arrived in SLC, gate wasn't open (at nearly 1 AM) and had to wait on tarmac again for 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with another 1 hour delay on the tarmac"
Pros: "The food was OK and I appreciated a complimentary glass of wine with the meal."
Cons: "Attendants made a big deal about expected significant turbulence...enough to say "now if your last chance to leave the plane" and suspend final beverage service. Turbulence was not bad at all and all they offered was water and juice after the initial service. Crew was short with passengers and movie selections were pretty lame. I was interested in the last movie, but it was shut off half way through."
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was late, I was bumped out of my seats that I paid extra for. The seats we had wouldn't recline. Boarding was announced in 5 minutes so lines were formed and we boarded 35 minutes later as we had to wait for one extra cabin crew member. We got charged toe all our bags (see SWA). There was human waste in the bathroom."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Mechanical delay in Rome after we were boarded. Delay caused missed connection in. Chicago. Rescheduled through Charlotte until we protested and asked for a direct flight to Denver. Got one through United. Plane was small and seats were cramped - much more than on the plane over to Rome."
Pros: "The attention great. The time was OK, the assistant for my mom great, easy for her to go through the airport was excellent."
Cons: "The waiting on the terminal for the wheelchair assistance, when you get home you want to onboard fast. But it was ok. a little impatience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Only one drink service for 5 hours, attendants not friendly or attentive, and it took an eternity--again with AA--for the bags to hit the carousel. Over 30 minutes' wait."
Pros: "Quiet. Overnight."
Cons: "no meal, no internet."
"Efficient friendly on time...."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "The crew and the service was very good."

Cons: "Second 2-hour delay in a row with United. Mechanical failures to blame in both cases."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was very late departing"
Cons: "Parents that check to make sure their kids are not obnoxious during the entire 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ground crew handled issues serially when they could have done things in parallel. This resulted in one delay after another For over 1.5 hour delay IAH to AUS. they wouldn’t tell us they weren’t making the prior 4 announced departures until 1 min before they missed it. CUN flt also late."
Pros: "Nothing. At all."
Cons: "Our plane was 2 hours late from San Francisco and we missed our flight to Columbia."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, They were so kind to my infant son. Huge props to them."
Cons: "Pay for wifi which would cut out. Couldn't access United.com or the United App. Everything cost money even the flight status which just shows our plane crossing the country. Who is going to pay over $5 to watch a plane snail its way over Saskatchewan. Seating was god awful. My knees were jammed into the seat back so badly the person in front of me couldn't recline because it was hitting my knees. Pretzels....unless you wanted to pay artisan prices for microwave food."
Pros: "the fact that the flight arrived on time without delay and the gates were easy to locate."
Cons: "How on earth did my i arrived lagos and only one out of my two bags showed up, i have to extend my stay in lagos and hoping my bag will come the next day, i have to pay $100 extra just to extend my one night hotel booking to two nights."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."

Cons: "Out going flight to Denver never made it to salt lake . Rebooking barely got us to connecting flights.... but made it we ran to connecting flight and did make connection. Returning, our first flight also never appeared ... two hours and 15 mins of standing in line to rebook We boarded another flight. In Chicago we stood in another line to rebook . Eventua"
Pros: "Beautiful new plane and pretty comfortable seats even all the way in the back of the plane. Beautiful scenery and a smooth flight."
Cons: "Pilot literally turned on the fasten seat belt sign 30 seconds after she turned it off - claiming non existent turbulence. It was fortunately a short 1.5 hour flight but they clearly just didn't want anyone walking around and using bathrooms. Safety is first - but this was so clearly a thinly veiled excuse to keep everyone in their seats. United crews continue to find ways to provide poor customer service. Passengers are such an inconvenience!"
Pros: "Our plane was delayed, nothing could be done about that and the food at the airport was great. So our extremely quick transfer became something that let us down and have a meal. Food was okay on the flight. And the Crew was very polite. All of our bags made it, hooray! New technology at the international terminal in SFO needs better, multi-language assistance signs."
Cons: "This may have been the oldest 747 in United's inventory. There were still cigarette ash trays in the bathroom and the bathroom was not user-friendly at all. My seat was busted and would not do anything but be fully reclined with a broken headrest too. Padding/ergonomics in the seat was terrible. Entertainment was old school, only main cabin TV's, no personal selection."
Pros: "Made the flight-arrived home early-good landing!"
Cons: "Racing to make it-thought we hadn't."
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."

Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"

Cons: "We don't take advantage of entertainment on board."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and made us late"
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
Pros: "I got a super cheap fare for this short flight from PHX to LAX. Staff was courteous and the flight went smoothly from start to finish."
Cons: "Was unable to figure out the free entertainment offered. Was a short flight so I didn't really worry about it."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly and boarding was fast"
Cons: "There was gooey stuff in the cracks of the inside paneling near the seams where something had seeped in, but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Cons: "Never made it so I can't rate it"
