Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Staff were accommodating and considerate, great flight!"
Pros: "The crew was v good"
Cons: "The seats and boarding staff"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive,"
Cons: "Have all the food choice in the menu available. And add sudoku to the game"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Cons: "Delay delay delay and i have to stay in hotel"
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."
Cons: "I would have liked rear and forward camera live feed to show actual flight"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable, easy boarding, good crew"
Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Pros: "Plenty of beverage service and food was very good."
Cons: "The other passengers were often rude and uncivilized. I guess Qatar couldn’t do anything about this."
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Cons: "better food"
Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."

Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."

Cons: "AC power. Seat back TVs."
Pros: "Great attend ants"
Cons: "I didn't the pilot pushing the American Airlines credit card and having the crew walking down the aisle trying to pass out applications."
Cons: "Turning on all cabin lights at 1am to do a beverage service was absolutely insane."
Cons: "Why are seats so small?"

Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Pros: "on time departure offered a beverage and snack"
Cons: "we had to circle phila we had to wait for our gate"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Pros: "American airlines bad service"
Cons: "Better Customers service"
Pros: "Everything was great and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I have an american advantage executive credit card that allows priority boarding but at santo domingo’s aieport they didnt let me do priority. Terrible customer service from check in crew at the airport and no individual tv’s its boring"

Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their news names."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device."
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Pros: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly. The gate attendant found us two seats together even though they couldn't do it initially in NYC."
Cons: "Sitting in the last row."
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Pros: "The airplane is new"
Cons: "The crew was terrible, so rude, really I don’t understand why there are like that. Is like asking a favor for everything . The seat are to short of space and uncorfortable"
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Booked on another 2.5 hrs later. Seating not until the last moment. No human touches... all mechanical / perfunctory."
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."
Cons: "They still use the dual port for headphones for the entertainment system so you are unable to use your own headphones. I didn't watch anything because of this."
Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly at all"
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "No TV or WiFi"
Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and the gates were so crowded. Plane was very crowded, my luggage almost went missing"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."
Pros: "Clean plane very spacious"
Cons: "Flight attendance was been rude he offer food everyone except me when I ask if I could get a drink he was making all this face like not wanting to give me anything"
Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."
Pros: "The attention and service provided by the aircraft"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed & cancelled. Unable to rebooked until evening of next day. Was easier to rent a car & drive home"
Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Pros: "The onboard crew was great and the agent at the Dulles airport who helped with my ticket was great (don’t remember her name)."
Cons: "I couldn’t upgrade my seat since my ticket is ‘restricted’ even though I am willing to pay more for another seat. I am a tall person and was assigned a middle seat for a 7.5 hour flight. Flight was also delayed getting into Munich so I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Staff. Boarding. Fellow Passengers."
Cons: "Gate checked baggage took forever to be brought to the jetway. I’ve been on several UA flights. It seems to be a major problem with UA and their contractors. They don’t load bags quickly."
Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."
Cons: "My baggage was lost."
Cons: "Entertainment was choppy and many titles didn’t work without constant buffering"
Pros: "Everything was as pkanned"
Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"
Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding okay speed."
Cons: "The plane was in poor repair. Seats were frayed, overhead panels were bent or broken on the ceiling, floor dirty, air not working... Old planes can still be old AND well kept. I was told I could have a carry-on, but at the gate, I was told that all bags would need to be checked. My "carry-on," which met criteria, came back bent AF with items missing."
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"
Pros: "The crew service in the airplane, it was clean and the were very nice."
Cons: "The service in the gate, I tried to explained her that when the plane land in Washington My connection will be already boarding and she didn't do anything to help. I asked her to check my bags complimentary so I could be able to run and she said no."
Cons: "No refund, no compensation, no apology....just too bad."
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Pros: "Quick, easy flight with a really nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Really small and uncomfortable plane. I feel like they should phase these small planes out. Seats are not wide enough for a regular sized guy."
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane because there was some problem with the baggage that was holding up all the planes. Not the airline’s fault, rather the airport."
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Pros: "They upgraded me and it was very comfortable. Didn't know till I was going on the plane. They sat me in the exit row and I'm very capable of doing what's needed in an emergency."
Cons: "Seats weren't as roomy as the newer plane and noisier."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we didn't find out until we all boarded and then we all had to get off and re board about 15 minutes later. Some missed connecting flights. Seems like they need to work on communication."
Pros: "I enjoy flying, despite the security checks, secondary security checks, the general lax nature of TSA agents who care not when your flight is leaving or how inconvenient it is to have to unpack your entire bag to show them a bar of soap is not, in fact, a plastic explosive. I do like to fly, but it seems to be increasingly difficult to adhere to the rules properly."
Cons: "I was in line to board with group 4 and the woman in front of me had a large duffle bag, a purse, and 3 small grocery bags. The gate agent let her through, but told her to consolidate her bags. I had one carry on and one purse and was forced to gate check my bag, only to find out I would have to go to baggage claim to pick it up. If the woman in front of me was forced to adhere to the rules, I would likely have fit my bag into an overhead. UNFAIR."
Pros: "Staff and easy boarding"
Cons: "I'm 6"1 and there's no leg room for at all!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No complaints. Short flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive"
Cons: "Nickel and dimed for every aspect of the flight. Very uncomfortable seating. Definitely not comfortable for anyone over 4'5" and over 100lbs."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs without reason."
Pros: "Rude boarding employee- Rude in general on phone with United Got to my confirmation code after having to change my flight and we got disconnected- didn't call me back when he had my number. Lost the connection"
Pros: "Jet was small, so a little less comfortable. Friendly staff. I got a refill on my beverage before they collected trash."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "Crew attempted to make a "backup" booking due to the delay in my connection to Newark. I had a 12:45 flight that was delayed. We departed at 1:45. I was booked on the 4:51 connection to Detroit and 8:58 as a backup."
Cons: "Due to the change in my reservation, my luggage was not loaded on my flight. I am still waiting for my belongings."
Cons: "United cancelled our first flight, and would not re-book us on another flight until 24 hours later, so we ended up having to drive from Washington DC to Savannah for an event. Instead of cancelling just the first leg of our flight, they cancelled the return trip as well, and then tried to charge us the difference because we were "booking at the last minute". United really is the worst airline, and we will never fly with them again."
Pros: "My flight has a delay and i miss my connection to my second flight. I need to book an hotel room and that was not in my budget."
Cons: "I was so cramped into the seat. I have never experienced such restrictive seating before."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and had to pay to stay in a hotel room for the night."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and polite. They made the trip very pleasant."
Cons: "There were flies on the plane on our return trip."
Pros: "The Indianapolis airport"
Cons: "The plane is too small, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall and there no leg room, my leg was raising the middle arm rest, I apologized to the guy next to me...he was cool about it. The plane does not absorb turbulence very well. That plane is to small for a flight that is a little over 2 hours"
Cons: "The flight was extremely late and completely upset my travel schedule. It cost me extra money to get to my final destination on-time. The worst travel experience I have had. The airlines did not communicate AT ALL regarding the delays that they knew about."
Cons: "First the flight was delayed more than 1.5 hrs and then I get a text that my suitcase was coming in the next flight which there was none, to then find out that my suitcase was there after my ride was returning to then come back to pick me up. Very unorganized."
Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."
Cons: "Had to rebook."
