Airline reviews

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Pros: "One of the JAL ground crew was fantastic at Narita airport. I didn’t have enough time to get on my next flight. She provided me full assistance to take me to the connecting flight gate on time."
Cons: "Several flight attendants gave me wrong drinks."

Pros: "Simple check in and boarding, right on time."

Pros: "33" seats"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Standard JAL. No hassles, nice, clean, friendly. Makes Hawaiian airlines look so Bad!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Premium economy is more worth that the price"

Pros: "none"
Cons: "very poor communication of information"

Pros: "Very smooth ticketing and boarding on Tokyo to Manila."
Cons: "In LA terminal, instead of the gate number the airport labeled my flight as “TBIT.” Not being local, I had no way of knowing it meant Tom Bradley International Terminal. I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."

Pros: "Everything was excellent crew was very helpful"

Pros: "Very family friendly. Good entertainment system."

Pros: "Nice leg room and excellent head phones nice crews"

Pros: "Service and airplane are the best!"

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: "Great service"

Pros: "They did their best to put me pn another flight to Norfolk buf it wasn't straight through"
Cons: "Missing my last fight straight home because of very slow US Customs...)0"

Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Pros: "JAL always have good services."

Pros: "Very nice , good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."

Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"

Pros: "Glad to make it to Japan safely and back in one piece"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "From start to finish, we were amazed by the customer service of Japan Airlines. Altogether we we had a 14-hour day or so of flying with two small children and it could have easily been a 20-hour-or-more day of flying had Japan Airlines not been so great at what they do. We can't say enough about how amazed and blessed we were by their customer service."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi and not having access to power outlets. Everything else was amazing and honestly these minor things were very forgivable given the great entertainment choices that came along with the plan ride and and the amazing customer service."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."

Pros: "Staff was great and plane was clean"

Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."

Cons: "Not much leg room"

Pros: "The most polite and attentative flight attendants and great food options."

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: "Boarding was actually good. It was checking your luggages in and getting your boarding passes which was POOR. Passengers on International flights going out of the Philippines are advised be at the airport at least 3 hours before scheduled flight. Well, the JAL check-in counter opened at 650AM for the 950AM flight (exactly 3 hours before the scheduled flight), with maybe some 50 people already in line. With most passengers coming far from the airport, it will be very very helpful if the counter, even at least one counter, would open earlier, so that passengers who came in early could check in early and wait comfortably in the departure area."

Pros: "It was a good price. I always like JAL flights that provide much better service than American companies. The Japanese staff are EXCELLENT! My flight was delayed from Montreal, but when I arrived Chicago, the JAL crew was waiting to take me to the next terminal!! (This never happens for American airline companies!!)"
Cons: "The food is getting terrible. They had better food a year ago."

Pros: "delicious meals with good drink selections. cabin crews were nice and have smiles on them all time. I saw crew provided excellent services to a young mom traveled with 1 kid and 1 infant with her mom on board throughout the whole flight which were impressive."
Cons: "I believe the air line cut down snacks between meals (my flight were 13 hours) which was little disappointed. Restrooms were not as clean as before although they were way better than other airlines. Crew's English speaking still need improvement. Please keep up the good works! I will flight JAL again soon."

Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."

Cons: "Very long lines at the security gate at Itami. Difficult web check in."

Pros: "Premium Economy had good seating space and leg room."
Cons: "No wifi access"

Pros: "Everything, from booking till landing"

Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."

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: "Service with a smile goes even longer for long flights. Excellent service throughout the flight. Loved the feeling of spaciousness, even in Economy. Great sleep as a result."
Cons: "Number of movies available in Entertainment was limited, especially compared to competitors like Singapore Airlines. Ran out of good choices on a long flight."

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Five star service on board. Very helpful and informative customer service at jal transfer counter."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great entertainment options. Didn't try the food but I never do. Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "JAL crew member were very nice and food were awesome!! But I was very scared this time, because airplane was shaking for long time..."

Pros: "For a red eye flight we still got fed a lunch box."

Pros: "I was treated like an important customer. Many airlines do not do this."

Cons: "There was an uncontrolled child kicking my travel companions seat and screaming for much of the flight. I’m not sure what United could do but relocating us or the passengers with the screaming child would have made the flight more comfortable."

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: "The flight attendants were so awesome and beautiful! Food and snacks were great and the amount of time we were fed. They came around in a timely manner to get trash and ask what we wanted to drink."
Cons: "More variety of options for the vegan meals..."

Pros: "The crew was very good. The service was fine."
Cons: "The food could have been better."

Pros: "Entire crew members, food, hospitality & aircraft."

Pros: "The cabin crews were excellent. Food was delicious. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Overall had a great experience"

Cons: "The entertainment choices for English speakers was a bit limited."

Cons: "I'm flight entertainment seemed a little limiting to me- more updated and new releases can enhance I've really experience"

Pros: "I like the way the stewardesses treating all passengers especially economy class- very professional , attentive to needs and service with great smile- overall wonderful experience and to think I had never heard of this airline prior to flying it for the first time was very impressionable for me"
Cons: "The in flights entertainment was a little limiting to me- but with the great service by crew- it didn't matter so much . But a little more wide variety could go a long way - or more new releases"

Pros: "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"

Cons: "Main food dish was combinations of flavors I would never put together. Lack of leg room."

Pros: "They had good movies and music of my choice."
Cons: "One flight attendant out of all others showed arrogant behaviors and facial expression. I was sort of disappointed because I chose ANA because of a reputation of their service and modesty embedded in the Japanese culture but not this time. I should have written down her name."

Pros: "crew was very polite and everything was smooth."

Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."

Pros: "Enjoyed the flight very much!"

Pros: "Amazing crew, very nice and helpful."

Pros: "The staff was amazing"

Pros: "The help desk employees who helped me rebook my flight."
Cons: "After rushing to catch my connecting Singapore flight, their desks were closed and there wasn’t an employee in site. Given that airlines can see connecting fights it would have been great to have someone stay back to either give me a boarding pass or help me rebook! UNSATISFACTORY!"

Pros: "The service was excellent start to finish. I found the movie selection to be excellent on the plane and the food was tasty and above average for airline food, and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Space in economy seat was good. Huge selection of movies. Food was tasty. On flights to Frankfurt, Singapore Airlines may want to keep more sparkling water in stock, as Europeans prefer this to still water."
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."

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.

All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

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"

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: "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: "I was not happy with the meal. The taste and appearance are not satisfactory"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "The whole experience was amazing. For a long flight, I was expecting to be miserable. But I was oddly satisfied. From the nice spacious seats, the the smorgasbord of food (never been fed so much on an airplane) to the excellent staff service I was impressed. Even the bathrooms were clean!"
Cons: "I wish I could’ve chosen to have my meal later. I didn’t ask but it would be nice to have that option since I wanted to sleep when they handed out dinner."

Pros: "Crew friendly and courteous as always, plane had more legroom than most, entertainment tech was top-notch, and of course, EVA always has great food."

Pros: "There was so much good food."

Pros: "Comfortable seat with good storage and lavatories are clean and big."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Little chilly in cabin"

Pros: "I have food allergies - and though I did not get around to notifying the airlines prior to the trip they did their best to accommodate me - even making sure that my return flight would include this request. The crew were top notch making sure that even the economy travelers like myself were very well taken care of, comforted and if asleep leaving notes to contact them for a meal set aside. I cannot say enough good things about EVA. Every airline could learn from EVA's attention to customer needs."

Cons: "Comfort, I need to get to where I can fly first class"

Pros: "I enjoy visiting Japan. I love the cultural, the foods, the people, Museums, and architecture. I came specifically to celebrate my 65th birthday by climbing Mt. Fuji."

Pros: "Everything was very well organized and efficient. Plus the prices were so cheap! :)"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Flew with EVA 16 years ago to Hanoi, Vietnam and again in 2018 to Hanoi, via Taipei. Very professional, attentive, good food, little amenities that make a difference in the overall experience of traveling. Very clean bathrooms, even after a 16-1/2 hour flight to Taipei it was still clean at the end of the trip. Food was good and plentiful, wine, spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages offered. Came around at least three times on the leg to Taipei with food and water and when I wanted more water they gladly made sure I stayed hydrated on such a long flight."
Cons: "I"

Pros: "I’m a frequent traveler and there is usually always a long wait when calling any airline customer service number. This is my first time flying EVA so I had several questions. I called 3 times in one week and was surprised that all my calls were answered within one minute. Well done!!!"

They wouldnt listen to my requests to change flights until it was too late. JFK airport put out a notice at 7:30PM stating that they woukd be closed until 7am the next morning. However, i recieved an email from EVA airlines AND Kayak around 9 PM stating that my flight was on time... the airport was closed!! Terrible organization... overall a really bad experience."

Cons: "Airline seemed to be extremely stingy with the food and beverages during my 12hr + flight. Felt like I had to fight for every little bit of extra scrap of food and explain why I needed it. It was also very limited options almost everything in the menu contained pork and if you did not pre-order a meal in advanced then it was hard for you to get anything else to eat. Airline also forces you to take out your headphones from the TV set almost 20 minutes before arriving for some odd reason. And on my flight we had a two hour delay on the tarmac."

Pros: "The vegan meals were tasty."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Seating not wide enough."

Pros: "flight is on time. you can pre check. crew is helpful. amenities are there. one of the best long flights i had."

Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Cool"

Pros: "Plane was clean, blanket and pillow comfortable, attention during scheduled meal and snack services good"
Cons: "Food a step down from what it was during last flight a few years ago. Movie selection meager. Flight attendants could make a few more rounds to check passenger needs."

Pros: "The seats,movies and food"

Pros: "The food, service,the smooth take off and landing, less announcements, seats are spacious enough"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and tasty food. Very prompt stewardess and good manner. Passengers are well behave."
Cons: "Long wait to check in. No information on the late check in. Information regarding lounges was not provided or apparent. Web site did not have this info."

Pros: "The best I was ever treated in economy class. New equipment less than-year-old 777 300. nice flight attendants that seem to be concerned about your comfort.The food was actually decent and legroom for this 15 hour flight. American flag carriers watch out.learn from your nationalist Chinese masters"
Cons: "Our first leg of the trip started at JFK with a one year old 777 300, economy was 3-3-3 seating arrangement The second leg from Taipei to BKK was a 3-4-3 seating arrangement on a one month young 777 that was certainly not as desirable"

Pros: "I am very pleased with EVA' service after all."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "helpful staff at check in in jfk airport. flights were not too crowded. only one stop to final destination."
Cons: "delay for more than one hour from jfk airport"

Cons: "Space beneath seat in front, where you put a backpack and such, was very, very small - smaller than other airlines"

Pros: "Flight arrived earlier!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent pilots! We met a very tough weather when we took off from Taipei 4/21/17 8pm. I thought it was the end of my life! Prayers, competent pilots, and dependable plane had saved us. To God be the glory!"
Cons: "I was requested to wait for a space for my carry on luggage which is fine. I waited for the FA to tell me where to put it and I placed it myself where she asked me to. Few minutes later, she asked me to move my luggage and to place it to another overhead cabin because she said It's "heavy." I followed the standard size and weight for carry on luggage. Another passenger helped me instead. No place to rest our feet."

Pros: "customer service was superb. very polite staff. amenities made one feel comfortable during the entire flight. food and entertainment was great."

Pros: "Everything was great except that the cabin temperature was too cold. But not a major problem. This was my first EVA flight, and I thought it was great."

Pros: "The crew are very helpful esp. to us who are senior citiizren"

Pros: "Accommodation was appreciated for 16 flight to taipei"
Cons: "Awful seats on Airbus 330 - uncomfortable at best - too small no legroom and packed like sardines Prison food approximates quality of gastronomic fare"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "It's unpleasant to ride on a plane for 17 hours."

Pros: "The price was less."
Cons: "Not very comfortable."

Pros: "Customer service was outstanding. After a debacle with Jetblue where they cancelled our originating flight, we booked another ticket through Delta to get to JFK. The Delta flight was delayed on the tarmac of JFK for 45 minutes, giving us only 15 minutes to go to the EVA terminal and check in. The terminal was nearly empty when we ran up to the counter. Luckily, the agents had not closed down yet. They attempted to check us in when they realized that the airline cancelled our ticket because our Jetblue originating flight was cancelled. The agents worked furiously to ensure we got on the flight, even communicating with the gate to let them know we were coming. They rebooked our tickets and got us on the plane. We are so appreciative of the EVA staff at JFK for saving our vacation."
Cons: "The food is alright. Equivalent to a TV dinner."

Pros: "Everything, very cozy. Eva air is always worth the extra few dollars"
Cons: "Nothing"

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"

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

Cons: "Seats are too small"

Pros: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"

Pros: "Food was better than expected. Entertainment as good as any major airlines. Planes were new and modern."
Cons: "Flight attendants are not friendly and rude. Seat had a problem reclining."

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "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"
