Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
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."

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: "Great service and 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"
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Lounges are good"
Cons: "We sure could do better refraining from serving food that has been opened, tasted, and rejected by another customer. Seat 34 A and B rejected their special ordered food for the wrong item. I watched them taste. Crew, one named Paul, took it back, simply put the foil back, and served to others."
Cons: "It’s hard to get used to not having seat-back entertainment when you’ve had it the rest of the trip!"
Cons: "The meals could have been better"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Was an older plan but ok. No plugs at seats."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Pros: "No free drinks no entertainment"
Pros: "It was on American ticked through BA"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was not good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Leg rest was uncomfortable. I kept getting notices that the flight was delayed up to 2hrs but got there and was on time. Then couldn't check in till a certain time; what's up with that?"
Pros: "I found everything to be acceptable for me."
Cons: "I was in seat 43A and the light from the galley was a mite bright from my seat, but I simply covered my head with the provided blanket and napped at will."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and arrived to London late for our connecting flight to Venice, was rescheduled for another flight from another airport. Had to take the taxi to get there on time for our next flight."
Pros: "Relatively confortable seating"
Cons: "Incompetent ground staff, inadequate handling of Reservation by BA"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food selection is terrible. Plainer, simpler foods that appeal to more people would be preferred. If you want to attempt to serve 5 course meals, that is fine, But, please have normal backup foods. In fact you would save a lot of money buy not putting seeds and grapes in the salads, buying plain white/wheat rolls with no seeds, and much simpler appetizers/desserts. I saw a lot of food being thrown away. Mine included. If you are trying to force people to buy food before they board, you have succeeded. TV displays and remote were very poor compared to your competitors."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very helpful when we were faced with dietary restriction issues."
Cons: "We had problems with the food. My son is allergic to tomatoes and mangoes while I am gluten intolerant. The options did not work for us. There was nowhere in the reservation that asked about this. The plane was about 80 degrees for the entire 9 hrs. My clothing was soaked with sweat. The legroom was less than on the domestic flight (AA carrier) which led my son to bother the person in the seat in front of us more. There was a male flight attendant that kept coming by to tell my son to get in his seat, which was not helpful. He is only 3."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good movie selection, free wine with meal"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, poor service, terrible breakfast."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Delayed by more than half an hour boarding and left nearly an hour late."
Cons: "Got stranded in Heathrow"
Pros: "The attendants were professional and polite."
Cons: "Food needs work."
Pros: "It was quite the opposite of departing flight. Everything was here perfect. Large entertainment choice. Food was good. Crew was this time way better."
Cons: "Nothing negative this time"
Pros: "It was great. Staff was very nice."
Pros: "Super helpful Dallas staff"
Pros: "Service was excellent and food options were above expectations"
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit unstructured"
Pros: "Nice new airplane with good seat design and quiet and confortable in flight. AA crew was nice and entertainment was OK."
Cons: "Chaotic and ilogical boarding"
Pros: "Speedy, timely, very professional crew"
Cons: "A leg room is too small."
Pros: "I did pay the extra for the upgrade and I loved the extra leg room (never mind being next to an empty seat) and the food was awesome. Which is saying something. And when offered wine with my meal she made sure to let me know that they has sparkling wine! Crew was great."
Cons: "We could have seen the crew more. They were great when we saw them and it was an overnight flight so they were trying (I'm assuming) not to wake people. But it was a but sad for those of us who didn't sleep. Would have been nice to been offered an extra snack."
Cons: "The tickets were never purchased at British Airways. I showed up at the airport and nobody had a record of me ever purchasing tickets. By the time we realized that kayak had not transferred funds to the airline, the plane had left and I had to completely re-book my trip at triple the cost. I will be disputing charges and contacting fraud services to resolve this issue."
Cons: "I hope that your company will go to hell"
Cons: "1 hr waiting on the tarmak watching planes after planes taking off ahead of us without any reasons"
Pros: "Food options"
Cons: "Sold as British Airways, but actually an American Airlines flight No staff at BA counter for check-in. Had to go to American to check-in (worked this out myself) When printing tickets for check-in, was not supplied with bag tags. Had to approach counter for staff to print bag tags. Seat monitor was small and poor quality Limited movie selection"
Pros: "American Airline agent in Madrid was very helpful during check-in by finding us comfortable seats together."
Cons: "We could not do check-in on-line. Same as on the way from SFO to London and then Madrid. This is absolutely unacceptable. We plan neither use British Airways ourselves nor recommend it to any of our friends or family members in the foreseen future."
Pros: "Crew was nice and comforting."
Cons: "Well, if I needed to send a fax, there was a line provided even with a mobile airplane phone that didn't work. The LCD screen didn't work on most seats, no USB charging, no adjustable headrests, blowers were barely functioning. The jet needs to be replaced especially for being an overseas flight."
Pros: "Choice of movies"
Cons: "No personality of flight attendants-never tried to engage. Hardest, most uncomfortable seats I've experienced and I am a frequent flyer"
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "It was somewhat brief, compared to the 9.5 hour flight just before it."
Cons: "Transferring between my flight from Madrid to my flight to Vancouver in the Dallas airport was an incredible pain. Sure, we had to go through customs, that's expected. Sure, wait for the luggage so you can take it through, right? We did. For 45 minutes. Then the announcement arrives: international destinations don't have to carry checked luggage through customs. That's why our bags never showed up. Now we have 45 minutes to get to our plane. We made it through customs relatively quickly, meander through the halls that guides are telling us to go through in order to get to our next flight... And then we arrive at the airport entrance, just outside of security. Thankfully, after alerting a TSA agent to our situation, we're not quite brushed off, but pointed toward another security checkpoint that might have a shorter line. We get back through security, and another TSA agent (who seems unsure we'll even make our flight) gives us directions to take a train to our gate on the other side of the airport. We sprinted. And we just barely made it. American Airlines was fine, Dallas airport and transfer protocols for international arrivals/departures were tedious, inefficient, and frustrating."
Cons: "Did not follow up on things they said they would come back for. For multiple requests. Also, didn't respond to the call light and had to turn it off and on a few times to have someone respond."
Cons: "Food, choice of entertainment"
Pros: "Direct airline"
Cons: "Delay, as usual on this rout because the airplane is too old and always have michanical problems From the inside it looks too old"
Cons: "Our upgraded seats were not available, will seek refund. My luggage was list and I had to buy new clothes."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 times, but communication about this was good so no one was kept wondering. Overall, the crew were attentive with smiles...sometimes that makes all the difference in the world. Movie selection was good for a long flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Unable to upgrade seats easily, upgraded seats given freely to passengers who did not pay for upgrade. Passengers who paid for upgrade were not given a choice of the available seats. Other passengers just moved to which ever seats they wanted. Like my upgrade money back!! Other than that, pretty good."
Pros: "The service was great and there was plenty of leg room!"
Cons: "Old 747-400. The seats needed replacing. My seat had a hole in the padding and a wire bar to sit on for many hours."
Pros: "Normal flight."
Cons: "These long haul flights are getting more and more cramped."
Cons: "we are 5 family members and one of us is a sick 8 years old girl. BA 193 was delayed 2 hrs while our layover was 3.5 hrs. arrived 1 hr before to go through immigration, collect luggage and transfer from terminal D to Terminal A running. made it to the gate 20 min before take off but they have sold our seats to other wait list passengers. they moved us to waiting list on another flight which was supposed to take off 1-1/2 hour later which was also delays an hour and we never made the list!!! We had to pay for accomodation for two rooms at the Element hotel neer the airprt and we are still waiting to catch a "finaly" confirmed flight Jan 4th at 1.45 pm. I plan on calling BA hoping to collect the hotel fees at least."
Pros: "Very cramped and terrible food. Entertainment was very limited much better on other airlines."
Pros: "The boarding attendant almost made me miss the flight over what I had already confirmed I.e traveling using an extension to a green card. Coaching needed on the topic."
Pros: "The staff in Dallas did a great job of keeping everyone informed of the flight delay. The flight attendants were also great."
Cons: "Exhausted at the end of 23 hours of flying and laying-over, I found that my seat did not recline. And the flight was delayed by an hour, making a very long trip uncomfortably longer. But other than that, it was fine."
Pros: "How easy everything was"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"
Cons: "No screaming babies but that’s out of their hands ;)"
Pros: "Great job."
Cons: "Short trip , WiFi was out but not an issue. Again I was so pleased not to have to climb narrow stairs to board. It was excellent and glad to be home. Maybe some peanuts."
Pros: "We had a wheel chair person and they made it very easy to drop off at the gate and get it at the destination gate. Also they drove us over to the baggage area due to many elevation changes required to reach this area."
Cons: "The obtaining of the boarding pass in Newark needed more people to help get the boarding pass. I like the option to use a machine if I want to generate a boarding pass but there were issues with the machines and not enough people to help alleviate the backup of people having to wait."
Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."
Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."
Cons: "No drink service And no free tv"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working."
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "Staff was on point!!! Awesome"
Pros: "Service, food quality, profwssionalizem"
Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."
Pros: "Ontime and excellent service. No complaints at all."
Pros: "The plane window seat"
Cons: "The sit isn't recliner"
Cons: "The seat table was badly stained andlooked like it hadn't been wiped in ages. The sack in front had garbage from previous passengers. It was also freezing cold. Food inedible"

Pros: "Movie selection!"
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."
Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Free wifi access"
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "United the worst.never again"
Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"
Pros: "I was able to bring on my musical instruments."
Cons: "Coach was very tight"
Cons: "My seat was changed right at the boarding! Even I just checked in on line the night before!"
Pros: "The staff on the plane was very nice. Good movie choices"
Cons: "There was mass chaos in Newark airport- the tea lines were out of control. I was at the airport super early. I had about 5 minutes to run to my gate. Unnecessary stress to travelers that day."
Cons: "all the attention"
Pros: "No issues. Quick and painless."
Pros: "Even though there was a delay. The trip was.Great."
Pros: "On time Smooth ride Actually slept"
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "Everything it's perfect"
Cons: "It would have been better if you would have told me that I need a transit visa in delhi,terrible customer service and ridiculously poor responsibility through your team of reservation that cost me to loose my 600 dollars for nothing coz they refused me to board on plane,and when I called you from airport,you never responded back to me, I am not recommending anyone to book their flight through your website"
Pros: "1 check in bag missed. Launched the complaint and still no use."
Cons: "Make sure no bags misssed"
Cons: "Staff Printed wrong boarding pass @ IAD leading to issue clearing security!"
Pros: "The care the staff have taken during pandemic is good."
Cons: "They should have entertainment."
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."
Cons: "Management, flight was delayed and no information conveyed ahead. Later connections missed and no proper arrangements made on time for next connecting flight."
Cons: "For my return journey I had to contact the airlines for change of date. It was a nightmare experience. Each time I called, I had to spend minimum of 45/60 minutes on hold while I was repeatedly pushed to new agents. This might be the only airline which would require an international passenger to visit the booking office personally to claim exemptions from date change penalty. ( my mother passed away and I wanted exemption because of bereavement)And to top it, no one knew the location of the booking office..."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all in 2 of the 3 seats. Airline staff could do nothing. AI staff does not help as we we're heading to Bangalore & Baggage need to be claimed in Delhi with just 2 hours transfer. We had to rush & no help from AI staff . Poor service."
Pros: "Only onboard forc1 hour. Staff seemed very nice."
Cons: "Only a short flight so nothing to comment on."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall. Food was ok. It used to be better in the past."
Cons: "entertainment was not working with few head phones on different seats. Ground staff can be more organised in traffic management at the time of boarding the plane. Different staff was giving different instructions aggravating the passengers and the staff members in return."
Pros: "Convenience of a straight flight from IAD to DEL."
Cons: "Online check-in did not matter as we still had to wait in line to drop off the bags. A baggage drop off for those checked in online would help reduce check-in lines as the counter..Food can be better, but that is true for most airlines..I think Air-India works on India time schedule as they offer alcoholic drinks at noon only (9:30 PM in India), the flight leaves IAD at 11 AM, and not during dinner service."
Cons: "All our three seats did not have working entertainment on a 14 hour flight; the back of the seats had cardboard used with duct tape; the flight attendants call button did not work; the reading lights didn’t work; flight attendants were rude and were working just bacuse they have a job; the quality of meals were the worst; could not turn off the screen that was blaring a non working message on a over 14 hour flight. Typical government run third world airline."
Cons: "TV system was very bad."
Pros: "Non-stop flight for DC area to New Delhi. Flight was delayed leaving but still reached destination on time."
Cons: "Lack of service during non-peak times. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "CREW, FOOD, CUSTOMER SERVICE. My parents were traveling on 29th April. They did not provide blankets or cushion even the flight was almost 15 hours long.. when my dad asked the crew for blankets, they said we only got 25% and we do not have it. The food was horrible.. they even complained at the airport but no one cared.. over all very bad/worse experience they had.. so disappointed.."
Pros: "Service by the stewardesses"
Cons: "Old aircraft and limited entertainment."
Pros: "The fast travel time with no layover"
Cons: "-No working entertainment system. 15 hours flight. A person could go crazy! Not just my seat, all seats around me."
Pros: "The direct flight from Washington Metro area"
Cons: "Absolutely old, ill-maintained plane, The tray table was slanted and food tray slipped all the time. I had to be careful that food didn't spill out. Uncomfortable seat with no leg room to speak of whatsoever. The seat didn't incline for sleep and drifted slowly within in a couple of minutes o the upright position. The travelers were horrible as well. Many passengers were just not behaving well. Left toilet papers all over the floor. Toilet room was poorly maintained. No napkin towels to wipe our hands! Flimsy napkin (if you can call that!) for dinner. Generally, the worst flight experience that my wife and I have had! And, we fly a lot around the world!"
Pros: "Overall Air India has improved a lot over the years. Flight took off ok time, reached destination before scheduled time. Need to improve on in flight announcements, get better on communication, service mannerisms, approach to customers, courteousness, etc. It was a good experience and would like Air India to get better and be great!"
Pros: "Service ...the tall clean shaven gentleman was very courteous and patient...even with people who behaved over entitled and over demanding..."
Cons: "-plane is aged -one curved long nose (diamond stud pierced) lady stewardess was oversmart and deliberately skipped two rows without offering coffee. Very inconsiderate and eventually her peers had to take care of that when they actually came to collect cups! -lady announcer could not announce landing properly twice! Could not read basic English at all!"
Cons: "Going to India and coming back both times the TV wasn’t working. It was really hard to spend 17 hours in flight without it. Food was terrible ( but again can’t really expect good food in flights) rudest staff i have ever come across. I have Avoided this airline for 15 years, i thought it may have gotten better but instead it has gotten way worse!!!"
Pros: "boarding was ok."
Cons: "the seats are are compact and not comfortable at all. I know i had the economy, that doesnt mean i should suffer the entire flight. the entertainment screen/s do not work!!! you'd be lucky if they do. they do not look very happy or satisfied serving food or drinks."
Pros: "Service was good, food was good. Arrived on time, rather a few minutes before the schedule. I appreciate that. Suggestion: People traveling on international flights with no luggage to check in but just one carry on, should be given priority to obtain boarding pass in a special line. I had no check in luggage but I have to stand in line in DC for one hour to get just the boarding pass, but on my return flight from New Delhi staff gave me boarding pass quickly in a special line. This must be looked into why not the same in DC?. Prof. Dr. Jiwan S.Sidhu"
Cons: "Most of the TV screens were not working. Out of three in the row only one worked. Moreover the number of movies etc were very few, not much choice. Please provide more variety in this entertainment section."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Direct flight saved travel time to Delhi"
Cons: "Compare to other flights there are no any positive feedback. Price High, broken seats, food quality bad and less."
Pros: "Direct Flight to Delhi Save travel time and less jet lack"
Cons: "Broken seats, dirty Dishes. Food quantity very less with very limited options. No ice for cold drinks, using Big bottles to serve soft drinks with few options. Compare to other flights there is no positive feed back"
Cons: "Flight seems to be very old and Entertainment screens not working. Not sure what to do during a flight time of 13hr without entertainment. Felt like flight attendants have zero respect towards their passengers. Responses were rude. No one attended service requests multiple times. Air India domestic crew far better than their international crew. Stupid crew and worst flight. My first and last air India flight."
Pros: "Taste of Food Excellent timings of the flights"
Cons: "Personal TV did not work Pathetic Customer Service"
Pros: "Nothing in particular!!!"
Pros: "Check in was easy no rush Service was great"
Cons: "Service was good. Best off all is nonstop"

Pros: "Boarded fast; on time"
Cons: "Seat did not recline; food poor quality"
Pros: "The food and selection of music"
Cons: "The remote wasnot working. The floating bag WAs stitched ar the side of the foot rest and it was uncomfortable to sit there. I was made to complete immigration at the transit destination and not at the first port of entry. This change was not intimated before"
Pros: "Must highly commend Benaifer Batliwala and Calvin Cruz of the cabin crew. Amazing service, felt like we were a family in the sky !"
Cons: "Wish that my video panel worked. It was one of many that did not work. How does a video panel not work for 14 hours of a flight between Washington and Delhi?"
Pros: "There is nothing that anyone can like"
Cons: "Everything. Nothing in the aircraft works, like TV, chair reclining. Service is the worst possible. Air hostesses are very rude."
Cons: "the seats are old and torn. Entertainment sucks"
Pros: "Friendly Crew. Spacious seating and clean aircraft. Food was decent though they kept running out of vegetarian trays."
Cons: "The crew needed to be more professional and prompt in their service. Forgot to offer coffee to my wife twice during the meal service and disappeared even when we requested it. The entertainment system hung on 3/4 of our seats and it took them 3-4 hours and 3+ requests to get them to reboot them."
Pros: "On time arrival Food was fine"
Cons: "Checkin was incredibly slow. They don’t have a simple bag drop for online checkin passengers, which wasted almost an hour of my time. Lavatories should be cleaned during flight. Tired interior. Unfriendly staff."
Cons: "3 hours late. uneatable food"
Cons: "The serving tables are broken and have to be propped up just to eat. The entertainment system did not work the entire 15.5 hour flight. The departing time was changed many times but was not reflected on the website."
