Airline reviews

Cons: "Business class seats not very long if you are tall. Western meal option is not really very western. Crew is a little too efficient- got woken up 90 minutes before landing to clear the mattresses. Lots of announcements- a bit too much. On time, and quick to respond to requests. Sake was good as was the ramen."

Cons: "More movie choices. More substantial second meal."

Pros: "The crew and food both are amazing."

Cons: "PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words."

Pros: "Food was amazing and stewardess courtesy to passengers."

Pros: "Two choices of meal, friendlier staff, better head cushion. Props to JAL."

Pros: "I loved the Haagen daz ice cream. Loved that they have USB ports."
Cons: "Portions of food is small. Entertainment selection could be better organized; ie comedy tv shows, drama tv shows, Japanese tv shows."

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "It’s 14h flight. I wanted more water. I had to keep asking but the size was too small... I didn’t want orange or apple juice...."

Pros: "Kind people, quality service. Very helpful. On time."
Cons: "Had trouble hearing instructions from flight crew since volume of the speakers was low."

Pros: "While many other airlines are cutting down on their service quality and amount of food on their flights, Japan Airlines has done the reverse: offer excellent food and great service at every tier, including economy. We took a flight from NY to Tokyo and felt like it was one of the best long haul flights we have taken."

Pros: "I was fed two meals and snacks/drinks in between for a 14 hour flight. Love the little TV in front of the seat and the blanket and pillow. Crew was very sweet. Overall positive and good first international flight. Would choose Japan Airlines again! <3"
Cons: "Only a little hard to sleep upright in economy class seat. I wasn't able to fall fully asleep."

Pros: "Crew members on board were very attentive and offered the best service in the most polite manner. Food was great. Great options and portion for lunch. Well respected brand for ice cream was served as dessert. A wide variety of overnight snack was provided for passenger's own selection. Breakfast was great with variety of food on the tray. Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Polite friendly and attentive Staff. From checking in to inflight."

Pros: "JAL is great!"
Cons: "Cold food"

Cons: "You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation."

Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."

Pros: "Nice staff."
Cons: "Economy seats very uncomfortable especially for long distance flights - barely reclining. Seat selection very painful - can do it online, have to call up to 48h before glight with roaming fees if already abroad. Food okay - nothing Japanese. Movie selection could be richer and better."

Pros: "Service and staff was good"
Cons: "Seats small there was a terrible smell like a dead rat that kept coming through and it was intermittently hot"

Pros: "Food served was actually pretty good."
Cons: "Movie selection, should've had more recent releases instead of flicks from the 90's. Makes for a long flight."

Pros: "Good in flight entertainment options. Great food and plenty of it. Service was top notch. No complaints."

Pros: "Airline crew was super nice and helpful, attentive, and the plane was very clean."

Pros: "Sitting in the Economy section, I was lucky to get the two seats next to me empty so i was able to stretch and sleep. Before the flight landed, the head flight attendant came to greet every passenger and personally thanked them for choosing JAL. I've flown on JAL several times and thus had never happened so I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Economy Class seats are uncomfortable for long haul. Wish they could do something about it. Some of us dislike rice crackers and peanuts as welcome snacks so a different option could be nice."

Cons: "They kept the cabin a little warm, and at 6' 4" the seats are a bit small."

Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"

Pros: "Service and polite staff."
Cons: "Not much space between the seats for my long legs."

Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."

Pros: "Dreamliner 787! Great staff. Efficient. Good food."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The attention of the flight crew to all passengers. The on time boarding, departure & arrival is top notch."

Cons: "2nd meal, some sort of a rice seafood mixture"

Pros: "nothing"

Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"

Pros: "The airplane was quite and clean and the crew were helpful"
Cons: "Some items were not new and not in a good shape like the headphones and the pillows. The crew didn't pickup the plates after we finished our meal"

Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. They were friendly and kind. Very helpful. Made sure I was comfortable and made sure the area was clean and safe."

Pros: "The second flight was perfect."
Cons: "No vegetarian options at all without advance notice."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Some announcements were only made in Korean. Would have been nice to have it in English for international flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Less new movies and kids movies"

Cons: "Flight attendants rude to travel companion . Non Korean but speaks Korean. When addressing two flight attendants on Korean, they insisted on responding in English, rather than continuing in Korean. Travel companion not happy."

Pros: "As always Korean Air’s attention to detail is outstanding and impressive."
Cons: "Though I appreciate the consideration given to tall passengers (trying to find us an aisle seat with an empty seat beside, after boarding, for instance), I think there is more that could be done during the check-in process to seat tall passengers into emergency exits or other seats with more legroom"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and accommodating as we had an infant."
Cons: "Entertainment was subpar."

Pros: "Flight attendants were the friendliest and most patient I have ever experienced. Great customer service!!!"
Cons: "Seats of any airplane could use improvement on comfort. But comfort was good."

Cons: "my travel trip from Kuala Lumpur to Korea and return face critical situation during landing at both airport ( Incheon and KLIA). I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST KOREAN AIR HAS TO CHECK YOUR TYRES CONDITIONS BEFORE TAKE OFF. I WILL NOT FLY WITH KOREAN AIRLINE ANYMORE"

Pros: "service, food, kindness"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."

Pros: "great service. my kids loved the special treatment!"

Pros: "EVERYTHING!!!! The staff at the gates to the boarding staff. Everyone was very helpful and professional. The seats had plenty of room and the staff always provided service with a smile."

Pros: "It was great! The staff was very friendly and attentive!!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Excellent and courteous, and friendly service."
Cons: "DID NIT LIKE THE FOOD. POOR QUALITY AND PREPARATION!!!"

Pros: "Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "The food was a little odd but that might just have been Korean food."

Cons: "baggage claim was very slow took about 45mins to receive bags after arrival to JFK"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Didn't dislike anything"

Pros: "Again on board everything was wonderful. The A380 was the most comfortable plane I've ever been in. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "Due to weather we had to reroute from JFK to IAD. we waited 3 hours for our bags and then were told to get to NYC we had to pay out of pocket and would be reimbursed later. I was injured and in a wheelchair and this was not only a major inconvenience it was also poorly handled for someone who needed additional help. It was every man for himself. I was very disappointed"

Pros: "The food is outstanding, the on-board service is wonderful."
Cons: "Unfortunately our flight was very delayed causing problems for lots of connections. Also the check in agent at BKK was not nice at all"

Pros: "Polite, welcoming and accommodating crew. Decent collection of music. Leg room in business class."
Cons: "Old aircraft. Limited food selection on business menu. No Arabic announcement despite flying to and from Dubai."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The width of the seats"

Pros: "The crew are very good."
Cons: "Entertainment musically restricted."

Pros: "For some reason the crew seemed more attentive and maybe fresher coming back from ICN than going to ICN"
Cons: "The only problem was the long layover"

Pros: "Crew helpful"
Cons: "Food tasteless"

Pros: "Cool; collected; patient; helpful; calm; respectful; overall, people doing their best for their customers."

Pros: "This was my first experience. It was great. Kindly staff. Service also good. I think it is good."

Pros: "Korean Air hosted us on four separate flights to SE Asia, a trip from which we have just returned. Of all of the airlines that we have used over the decades, Korean Air rates at the very top. We have no complaints, only a sense of what a first-class operation it was for us."

Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"

Pros: "Staff is so friendly. Amazing legroom in economy, comfy seats. The food was great. They even offered packets with tooth brush and tooth paste. The plane's cleanliness is also stellar. I took a 14.5 hour flight that felt like a 5 hour flight. Korean Air's attention to detail sets the bar for all airlines"
Cons: "Nothing negative what so ever."

Pros: "Nice in-flight movie options. Friendly staff. Plenty to drink and enough to eat."
Cons: "Meal was chicken and rice and plenty to drink: water, coffee, soda. There was also pickled vegetables and tofu, but I was satisfied not eating those. Numerous intermittent announcements: [The usual preflight safety briefing, the mid-flight seat-belt and arrival eta announcements, the mid-flight turbulence and temperature comments, the customs-forms hand-outs, the duty-free inflight shopping opportunity announcement, the eventual apologetic conclusion of the duty-free, inflight shopping opportunity] together spoiled my calculated chance of finishing a short movie."

Cons: "I can't flight. What happened?"

Pros: "Fare was cheap w/ beuatiful service from korean airlines"

Pros: "The flight attendants are great and very helpful"

Pros: "Staff very helpful in every way."

Pros: "Boarding is systematic, all items in order. The food was nice. Love the leg room space."

Pros: "We had a short connection after a Korean Air Flight from Hanoi to Seoul before catching KE 085 to JFK. The time pressure was heightened because the first flight take off was delayed. There was an attendant waiting as we deplaned in Seoul who escorted us to the gate and assured us that the plane would wait for us. And miraculously, our baggage tagged for short connection, did make it with us to JFK!"
Cons: "Would love more Movie and TV options"

Cons: "Boarding would have been fast if the passengers seating in the back rows were called first to board, followed by the middle rows, and last to board, people seated in the fron rows (after of course calling the priority passengers. Traffic on the aisle would be avoided"

Pros: "The selection of fellow PAX, the cabin staff"
Cons: "No supersonic flight"

Pros: "the food was excellent"
Cons: "I was upset with the lack of live television/satellite channels."

Pros: "The boarding went smoothly considering the number of people on board. It took a while to take off and to land, but that's because the airports are busy. The crew was incredibly well dressed in professional attire. The accommodations were amazing - the flight came with the standard pillow/blanket combo, disposable slippers, headphones, a toothbrush, two meals, a snack, drinks, and the attendants dimmed the lights whenever they weren't serving - all free. The entertainment was amazing - I watched four Hollywood movies that I had been wanting to watch, and that was one section of the movies. There were also TV series and music available, both in English and Korean."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the crew's attention, especially from the center seat while speaking English. One of the meals gave me terrible gas, which was uncomfortable for me and my seat mates."

Cons: "The flight attendant didn't speak much English also they didn't tell the passengers to ascend the seat when serving the food."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not speak English so it was hard to communicate with him. The reservationist also told my friend that she had a seat that was like an Isle seat but it was next to the window with no exit access. The only exit access was passing the person next to her which is what she was trying to avoid."

Pros: "Flight was great. The service and kindness of flight attendants was the best I ever had."
Cons: "Really can't say there was anything I didn't like. Just going thru customs. Not very many friendly people to help with the process."

Pros: "The planes were very clean and in good working order. The crew was excellent. We had a very short connection but were met as we got off our first flight in Seoul and given great instructions about how to quickly get to our connection through security while our flight to SFO was being held for 15 minutes. The food was very good, choice of movies and TV excellent. Our bags made it to SFO despite the short connection. All in all I couldn't ask for a better way to make a 20 hr trip to the other side of the world."

Pros: "This was my first trip abroad and Korean Air made it extremely enjoyable! I greatly enjoyed the pillow, blanket, overall hospitality, the continuous offers of food, snacks, and drinks. The planes were very nice and didn't seem over crowded. Ticket and baggage clerks were amazing!"

Pros: "I was late for my boarding to due to incoming flight was late but they waited when they didn't have to and accommodating to my needs"
Cons: "Did get my luggage with me when I landed in Chicago due to my incoming flight was late"

Pros: "The simplicity."
Cons: "A closer gate. Some inflight food."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and meals are delicious."
Cons: "Give free mask."

Pros: "Food is bland, boring. Entertainment contents are limited and old movies"
Cons: "As mentioned above, more new selections of movies. Better taste and quality of food, please."

Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible. I called 3 times to get headphones and they never came to give me any. The food was dry and we were only fed twice. I’m vegan/vegetarian so there wasn’t any options."

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."
Cons: "I am diabetic patient & I couldn’t get my aisle seat so, I had to wake up my both side passenger too often. Missing my Hindi movies."

Cons: "More western food options, better selection of tv shows for entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and the food was very nice."
Cons: "It really would have been nice to have a vegetarian option!"

Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "The Japanese food was fantastic - individual Japanese food selections which I wondered if would be good turned out totally amazing - well done!"

Cons: "Seats are a little narrow near the window."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Really polite and attentive. Liked that they offered liquids throughout the flight to keep us hydrated. Good experience overall."

Cons: "How loud and aggressively the toilet flushes."

Pros: "I got a great value for money ticket from KAYAK, TQ!! ANA is an excellent airline, better service, better leg rooms and cuter crew members than than SQ!!"
Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"

Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room. The check in agent in Manila, Arnel (or maybe Armel) was especially helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Pax are advised to show up at least 3 hours before flight. My wife and I showed up 3hrs 45 min before takeoff. There were perhaps 40 to 50 people already in line ahead of us. But no checkin counters were open. The first check-ins began 3 hours prior to take off. By that time the line was backed all the way out into the main corridor. It would be MUCH better for ANA and the customer to begin the checkin process 3.5 to 4hours prior instead of 3."

Pros: "- Airfare Price - Ease of Checking In - Friendliness of Staffs - Aircraft is clean"
Cons: "- Entertainment options were limited - Food choices limited as well - Seats are a bit stiff and small"

Pros: "Smooth , professional crew and their hospitality and especially their smile and attention to passengers is unparalleled."

Pros: "The meals were healthy Japanese meals with lots of vegetables"

Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"

Cons: "Not ok"

Pros: "Excellent service"

Cons: "There was a smell in the plane when I first arrived like vomit. It may have been the cleaning supplies."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."

Pros: "The trip was horrible we have to sit separately three places."

Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Seats could be a bit more comfortable in premium economy"

Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier. Excellent crew who were always willing to help with my fondness for a beer. Food was as expected and up to the standard of Singapore Airlines. All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Pros: "I was inpressed"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing."

Cons: "Headphones didn’t work entirely for listening to movies. Had to manually hold it in."

Pros: "There was nothing to complain about..a very friendly staff, departure on time !"
Cons: "No newspapers and magazines on board !"

Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"

Pros: "The ground staff at JFK, especially Jon, were very helpful and friendly. The flight crew was also very friendly."

Pros: "The crew of ladies and men where so very gracious and courtly, both to the passengers and each other. My wife and I both took note that the flight attendants were "First Class" with emphasis on class. Exceptionally well groomed, but also conveyed genuine concern and helpfulness and at the same time, real workers, energetic and perky. We are bragging to all our friends about the uplifting cultural demeanor of Singapore Airlines. They should all get a pay raise. I will always remember their wonderful service when thinking about our trip to Frankfurt, Germany. Robert"

Pros: "Service from Singapore airlines"

Pros: "smooth service with refreshments"

Cons: "nothing disappointing"

Pros: "FOOD, ADVANCE SEATING & JETWAY TO UPPER DECK"
Cons: "SMALL SPACE FOR FEET IN BUS. CLASS AND HEAD REST NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE"

Pros: "The choices for entertainment were excellent! I was never bored for a second on my 20++ hours of flight. I love how they gave us in-ear earphones instead of the normal airline headphones that keep on sliding off."
Cons: "It was quite difficult for me to get comfortable. Maybe it's due to my shortness, I can't really rest my head that well"

Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"

Pros: "From the beginning until the end the service, the vibe, the flight itself was amazing. I don't know any other airline I flew with so far that hosted me and all other flyers better. At any time I was supported by the staff and even if it was busy they constantly had a kindness and smile in their face. I don't fly with any other airline on long distance flights! It was clean and neat on top at any time. I love flying with Singapore airlines. I feel safe and in good hands all around. This is how service should be at any airline! It is never less good but a constant since years! Thank you"
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."

Pros: "Singapore air has amongst the best service out of all airlines."

Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"

Pros: "The checkin was straight forward. The staff were very pleasant as always. The entertainment system worked."
Cons: "It was an 8 our overnight flight to another time zone where we had a full day ahead of us so we needed all the sleep we could get but instead we were fed around midnight. Lights went out for about two hours, it seemed, before we were told to put our chairs upright for the person behind us so they could serve another meal. We arrived about 10am completely shattered."

Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."

Pros: "Had to get new boarding passes at JFK eventhough issued passes at Rochester without gate numbers but was then able to check that my bags were transferred to SIA."
Cons: "I could not select a seat on JetBlue. Indian vegetarian food was mainly rice and potaoes and bread, not much protein like paneer or egg for the non-vegans like me."

Pros: "Everything was amazing. Best flight I've ever been on!"

Pros: "Outstanding crew! Super attentive in my section.. I had seat 43E."
Cons: "Seat was a little tight for me, but not bad... I'm 6"2 and 185 lbs"

Cons: "Best service"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."

Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "On line flight experience"
Cons: "The food has to improve especially they have to provide fresh food"

Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"

Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"

Pros: "Excellent meals. Pleasant cabin crew. Good inflight entertainment system and choices. Concerned about short connection in Doha but no problems. Good signage."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Passengers with kids up To ten yrs should be boarded with passengers with infants...otherwise excellent service...i like flying with Qatar airways.."

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 and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Pros: "The bag with socks and toothbrush with paste was a nice touch. The flights operated on time! The seats were fairly comfortable for coach class."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"

Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."

Pros: "Great hospitality"

Pros: "It's was good"
Cons: "The plane from Qatar to Nairobi new modern plane needed"

Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."

Cons: "Seats are too small"

Pros: "Food is good"

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Okay"

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Cons: "Touch screens are hardly touch sensitive..you may need to replace the screens.."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
