Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Service not very attentive, had to repeatedly ask."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced. I am not one of your frequent flyers but travel internationally. However, based on his attitude I will think twice to select Qatar as my choice of airlines."

Pros: "Long flight, not so full, yet the crew was busy. Some green/trainee types waking us up to bring seat forward while serving meal to passengers on the rear row !! One said we dont serve wine with lunch - really! She did bring the wine 30 minutes later. But they were nice overall. Kept it clean. A+."

Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Very polite and friendly crew. Very helpful."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I wanted in stock"

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Crew were great and sincere"
Cons: "Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay."
Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."
Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."
Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."

Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."

Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."
Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Pros: "Crews behavior was amazing"
Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"

Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"
Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."
Cons: "Suggestion: I think it is better if all the children and their parents/ care takers are provided priority seats in front. This will reduce unnecessary annoyance caused to other passengers on long flights and at the same time enhance the experience of the children and their care takers if special attention can be devoted to them."
Cons: "I did not receive the flight confirmation even after payment it was kayak mistake and i will never book from your site again"

Pros: "A perfectly ordinary Emirates flight: good food and entertainment."

Cons: "Better & flavorfull food .. Qatar & KQ Airlines hands down have better tasting food"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"

Impossible to get to first class lounge until the Emirates desk opens (we had a 5-hour wait before we could go to security as we couldn’t go through until the desk opened to take checked luggage. They appear unfamiliar with boarding passes on the phone - wanted paper ones."

I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"
