Thanks for many up to date movie choices to watch. Crew worked hard to keep the toddlers in front of me happy. (and they were really good with them!)

Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas...

Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest.

we were in the plane for nearly 30 hours due to an air traffic controllers strike in Dakar. During that time we were only served two meals and a sandwich. And during the four hours on the runway in Gambia the crew seemed to disappear rather than offer drinks snacks etc. which would have helped. It seemed to us that SA Airways should have known about the strike before we left Johannesburg and made alternative arrangements rather than making decisions while we sat int he plan on the runway in Gambia and then backtracking to Ghana.

We had selected specific seats for flight approximately six months ago. On the day of the flight, when we checked our baggage, we were issued boarding passes with those seat assignments. Then, as we presented our boarding passes at the gate, the agent told us there was a problem with our seats; specifically he said that there was “a broken arm rest” so we had to be re-assigned to different seats. He told us the seats he substituted were the same as we had been assigned -- a window and aisle -- but in a different row. We boarded the plane to find out that the seats he issued to us were in the center of the row, not on the side of the plane as he had said. There did not appear to be a problem with the arm rest for our originally assigned seats after all, since those seats were occupied by two passengers. The long flight was uncomfortable due to this change. For some reason that was not given, we were not asked if we wanted to give up our original seats, but they were given to someone else and we were inconvenienced for their benefit. On the trip back, they tried to change our seat assignments again. But we called them on it.

I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips.

Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways.

Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry."

They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care.

The crew was extremely nice! Especially the older English gentleman.

When I purchased my ticket, they asked if I had any dietary restrictions. I noted that I was vegan – but there was no vegan option for my flight to Johannesburg from New York. That was pretty annoying as I was very hungry. The flight back home, from Johannesburg to Dulles, was a bit better as there was a vegan option between Ghana and Dulles. Other than the food the flight was OK. I think all airlines need to work on making the seats more comfortable. It is almost impossible to take a reasonably comfortable nap on an 18 hour flight.

6 hours after departure I told the crew that there was no soap in one of the bathrooms. I told them again after the stop in Dakar.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
