Food was unappetizing and would have just preferred more fruits instead of the bland meals"
Pros: "Air craft"
Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."
Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . A350 was one of the best planes Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy Entertainment system was too good"
Pros: "Everything?"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"
Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."
Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"

Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Pros: "Excellent friendly service"
Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "As always the space"
Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The service was okay"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Had a great experience with this flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the pilot and staff. The workers were very friendly. P.S I loved the food"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. The stewards were beautiful and young not like on US flights.."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, My tail bone was hurting badly and sitting on pillows did not provide any relief. The food was terriable. Not much choice."
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Pros: "Crew was great; plenty of space to stretch out"
Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."
Pros: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."
Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."
Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff was very friendly and attentive, the price was right, the seats were comfortable, and they had a good selection of movies /entertainment. We would use Qatar again"
Pros: "The only minus was that my luggage did not arrive with me but it come back the following day. Prior to this I was given the sume of 50usd for the inconveniences caused"
Cons: "Only issue was long transit line in Doha, otherwise outstanding service and comfort"
Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"
Cons: "Wifi"
Pros: "Crew mediocre, a bit odd. Old plane, no power, WiFi, nor entertainment."
Cons: "WiFi and entertainment"
Cons: "On the first leg of my journey, there was a card explaining how to get inflight entertainment using the aainflight.com which worked great. However the Phoenix to Eugene leg used Boingospot but there was no card in the seat pocket explaining what needed to be put in your browser to access the entertainment portal. There were only two flight attendants on the flight and, aside from the drink service, no one ever came to the back of the plane so I could ask the question. I could have used the call button but I think that should be saved for emergencies. I think the information on how to access the inflight entertainment should be in every seat pocket"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "WiFi on both ways was not working"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Great short flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"

Cons: "Flight was two hours late due to snow and deicing."
Cons: "no air jets. told it was an old plane with no air jets. Very uncomfortable flight for 7.5 hours."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "That it actually happen. Poor communications from British Airways and American Airlines."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Pros: "Empty seat by side"
Cons: "Overhead light not working TV screen not working Very average food"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Everything. Crew. Comfort. Everything."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "very nice seats."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. But leading up to it not so much."
Cons: "Please inform travelers that their passport must not expire within 3-6 months of their trip to France. I was unaware of this and was not allowed on our flight in Philadelphia because my passport would expire in two months. We lost an entire day in France because I had to go to the customs office the next morning and get an emergency passport. I travel frequently, but somehow was not aware of this rule. If I had known I would have fixed the issue months ago. Multiple people viewed my ticket and passport before arriving in Philadelphia and no one caught this error until right as I was boarding the flight to Paris."
Pros: "Arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "No power outlets at seats."
Cons: "No movies or other entertainment that I could find"
Pros: "extra leg room but I had to pay for it"
Cons: "This should only be used for important communications. And to not offer food on a 6 hour flight is horrible."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Took off and arrived on time."
Cons: "They ran out of choices."
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "nothing horrible flight"
Cons: "This was almost a six hour flight there were no televisions available the flight was oversold and there were people on standby there was very little Lego room we were only offered snacks and drinks the crew was stressed we left late because we were instructed to check our carry-ons but that was not enforced until people were already on the plane getting on the plane and getting off the plane took a very long time there was very little leg room it was difficult to move around the plane because it was such a small plane the crew was very stressed out. I am very upset about this flight and will not fly with American ever again."
Pros: "There was a lot to see"
Cons: "The screens were severely delayed and frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There are NO ENTERTAINMENT, and I had two flights that were more than 5 hours each. It was not operated by British, it was actually American Airlines."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and live tv options"
Cons: "Temperature on flight was freezing cold!"
Cons: "close it!"
Cons: "food options, departure delay"
Cons: "We booked a round-trip flight on AA from Philadelphia to Dublin. Due to changes in our travel plans we revised our flight dates. The phone customer service rep who helped me make the changes, assured me that the AA policy was to group families together after she informed me that I could not choose our seat assignments at that time. Arriving at the Philadelphia airport, we used the self service kiosk to check-in. The issued boarding passes put my wife and me in different rows on one side of the plane, and our nine year old son on the other. I asked a roving AA customer service rep if it would be possible to change our seat assignments and explained what we were told when rebooking. She waved vaguely in the direction of the baggage counter, and told us we could change our seats when checking our baggage. We brought out baggage to the counter and informed the customer service rep working there what we were told by the kiosk and phone representatives. She immediately yelled at us and told us to calm down, even though we were merely asking and explaining. Each time we attempted to explain our situation or ask where we could seek assistance, she bristled. Finally, she told us we should go to the main check-in counter because she could not change seat assignments. The check-in counter rep was very brusque. She said she could not change anything because we had boarding passes and should accept the locations because it was an international flight; however we could ask at the gate if changes could be made. At the gate, service was provided for three flights - Dublin, London, and Manchester(?). We stood briefly in line and were motioned up to a desk for the London flight. I informed the customer service rep that we were travelling to Dublin, and what we were told by the previous AA representatives. Without checking to see if was possible to seat the three of us together, he told us that he could only put my wife and son together. Somewhat relieved, we asked him to revise their seat locations. He made the changes and handed us our new boarding passes. As we walked away from the counter, I noticed that the new boarding passes were for the London flight and did not have my wife's or son's names. We returned to the counter and told him that there had been mistakes made. He immediately snatched the passes from us and berated us for not telling him that we were not going to London. I told him that we had told him of our destination as soon as we approached the counter. He retrieved our original passes from the trash and told us to wait for the Dublin flight reps to arrive. Immediately, I called the AA toll-free number and informed the phone agent of all that had happened. She was able to locate two seats together for my wife and son, and told me to inform the gate reps of the information. Because of character limitations I cannot tell of the counter rep who was an angel and managed to seat the three of us together. Thank you!!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms in the airport deplorable. Gates not so clean as well."
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Pros: "The Spanish staff were nice."
Cons: "Air plain was old."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "One of the worst flights ever. The plane was jammed. My seat was in row 20, directly across from the lavatory. The light was one every time they opened or closed the door. I had people standing right next to me with their rear ends in my face. The plane would be fine for a short trip with that many people and such small uncomfortable seats (and I am a little person 5'1"). But to put that many people on a "cattle car" for a 6 hour flight... no bueno. Also, I could not check in online to get seats and I wasn't able to upgrade. My husband was stuck 13 rows behind me. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "While boarding the plane an AA employee actually grabbed the 1/4 full gym bag out of my boyfriend's hands and said he had to check it (even though it had fit under his seat next to his backpack on our previous American Airlines flight). Boarded and saw there was still plenty of open overhead bin space. Had to wait 30 extra minutes at our destination to claim his unnecessarily checked bag. This is on top of poor customer service from the gate agents and a long delay on our outbound flight. Will not choose to fly American Airlines in the future"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight, attendants were rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "Almost did NOT make it home to Salisbury airport. 3 hr layover in Philadelphia. Tried to obtain seat assignment 1 1/2 hrs prior to departure and was only told it was too soon and they would call my name. 5 minutes prior to boarding, checked again and told by another airport helper that the flight was OVERBOOKED and now I was on STANDBY. Purchased tickets over a month and a half ago. No problems getting to Orlando but to return to this- UNACCEPTABLE. DO NOT OVERBOOK a flight!!!!!!!! People make plans, have to work the following day and face the chance of not making it home-POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!! Thankfully 5 people did not show for the flight, should NOT gamble with that!!!!!!!"
