Cons: "Qatar airways changed the flight time which made the layover 8 hours instead of 3 hours. For the inconvenient it was caused Qatar airways made no effort to compensate."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "crew is good and helpful."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Needs to improve the quality of the food."
Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."
Cons: "Economy seats are way too tight, had severe problems with knee room when seat in front was reclined. A terrible passenger just forward of me had no regard to this issue and refused to be cooperative. Food was lukewarm at best and was on mildly appetizing in economy."
Cons: "The check in at Denpasar is horrible. The airport services are very inefficient."
Pros: "1. All flights were on time. 2. The aircrafts were clean and tidy. 3. The choice of entertainment was plentiful. 4. Possibility to connect to internet provided on outbound leg, not on inbound."
Cons: "1. The boarding process, in general, could be improved. 2. The "official" transit time was one hour, but passengers were made to wait while the business class disembarked, reducing actual transit time to 30 mins. Considering distance to departing gate, and security checks, this was stressful."
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."
Pros: "They greeted us in Georgian at the gate during boarding, this was very nice."

Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."

Pros: "The crew good except one man i guess from India"
Cons: "The food was not good at all"
Pros: "I had the whole row. Food pretty good for economy. Good movies"

Pros: "A bit of delay, high traffic. New MCT airport is much better than before."
Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"
Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."
Cons: "My 1 Bag was open. Lost few items. Not satisfied the luggage was handled by the crew. Overall Dissatisfied due to Bag was received in open condition. @ Amdavad Airport found issue by Crew but didn't take good care of it."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."

Pros: "Service was ok not a big deal. Could've had a accommodate us for the 2 hour delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay...and once in seat it was too hot with traffic of planes in front of us."
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious seating. Quick and smooth flight."
Cons: "Since this was such a short flight, there wasn’t much to improve."
Pros: "Wow. I have been flying American and United for years. Delta is friendly, competent, professsional and enjoyable. They treated us like friends instead of like cattle. It was great! Great job Delta. Oh, and for the first time in 50 years of flying my bags arrived sky first. Yes! They get it!"
Cons: "Perfect experience. Well done. Treat people like friends. Simple. Works."
Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."
Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day. I bought the whole international business ticket to Peru together, I don't understand why Delta consider my first portion not part of my international ticket!"
Pros: "Crew trying their best to keep passengers happy. Arrival on time."
Cons: "Incredibly bad, mostly unhealthy, overprocessed food. Glad I brought my own. Very narrow seats. No opportunity to upgrade to economy plus. One day you will have casualties from minimizing further and further the seating space until even normal- sized people collapse from lack of blood circulation. (On my outbound flight from Atlanta to D' dorf an oversized seat neighbor literally flowed partly into my seat, making matters worse.) A major concern: stewardesses support the general fashion of darkening the cabin in the interest of movie watchers and general quiet. What about my right to daylight, especially during a day flight from D' dorf to Atlanta? It's helpful against jetlag. 11 hours in a darkened pipe followed by arrival at night time are unhealthy. The film program is not intetesting enough to justify this decision."
Pros: "Crew was extremely attentive and friendly. I wish Delta's flights were this good inside of the U.S.8"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I enjoyed the food the most. The flight was short and easy."
Pros: "Aeverthing"
Cons: "There was a long line at the very hot sleeve leading to the aircraft, in Istanbul. If the ground team know that this is the case they should slow down the boarding at the gate. The sleeve at the destination, Venice, was air conditioned"
Pros: "Charged me >$700 for missing a flight. This never happened earlier. Customer service girls are robotic: they just repeat the same lines. THY wasn't like this, something major has changed."
Cons: "Zero effort to reaccommodate."
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "The security and service throughout the flight was very good for the price we paid."
Cons: "The transit time was a bit short for my trip from NYC to DAC."
Cons: "Same thing happen with the kosher meal on the second flight."
Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable and the crew as very warm"
Cons: "since i had a connecting flight and in changing timezones i as served breakfast in both flights in a duration of 12 hours. the food was also not according to my taste buds."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."
Cons: "Although in first class, the service was subpar. The attendant did not smile, told me to look in the magazine when I asked if there were any dishes without cheese . She left an empty glass on my tray for the entire flight!"
Pros: "Gateway clean. Wheelchair assistance was helpful, and friendly Flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "- Tiny bag of pretzels seems cheap for a $600+ ticket. - HATE, HATE, HATE the charges for the first and second checked baggages!! I stopped using UA over 7 years ago because of these charges that came when gas prices were high and never went away. Always use Southwest whenever possible. Cheaper!"
Pros: "I was able to find a space for my luggage in the overhead compartment"
Cons: "Seat outlets didn’t work. Flight attendant on the PA didn’t know what city we were flying to. Poor communication regarding reason for flight delay Flight attendant making snarking comments about if we get to their seats we do if we don’t we don’t."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "A child kicking the back of my seat the entire flight"
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "frequency of drink/food service. Appreciated the ice cream."
Cons: "Food was not good. chicken or pasta were the choices, we sampled both. Neither was good - some of the worst airplane food Ive had. On our return flight from Munich to Houston we had same choices but it was a different type of chicken - curry chicken - and that was excellent. I would recommend you serve the same thing on your Houston - Munich flights! Seat comfort (bottoms) not so good."
Pros: "Everything else was all right"
Cons: "It was a late flight and it got delayed and my in laws had to keep awake to come pick me up"
Pros: "They served butternut squash tortellini, fresh salad, and a fresh roll for dinner. I normally eat because I have to on international flights, but I actually enjoyed this meal. Too much pepper in the salad dressing, though. Besides the food, the rest of the flight was good; not much turbulence, and I got a lot of rest."
Cons: "Power outlets were hard to find, and the volume for movies was on the screen, so you had to pause the movie to change the volume."
Cons: "I was unable to go on the flight because of the extraordinarily high cost of changing a last name from a maiden name to a married name. I was so disappointed by the service."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible., music not working . Small and horrible selection of films with subpar quality and sound. No where to charge phone. SAS has excellent entertainment system even in economy"
