Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."
Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"
Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"
Cons: "The seats were cramped"
Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"
Pros: "I love the smiley flight attendant , especially for long distance flight. It would make it better trip to have smiley and helpful flight attendant. The meals provided by QA is good. it would be better with more fresh fruit on every meals."

Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."

Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"
Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Pros: "It was just a lovely airplane with a lovely crew. Also, good airplane food."
Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."

Cons: "Seats on Air Canada Rouge are awful."
Cons: "Will never book a trip with you"
Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."
Pros: "The crew were very good. In any case, I shall fly with AC again."
Cons: "Lining up to check in with bags. The customers were "sorted" but I finished up on a very long line with only one person serving; after 30 minutes, that person just wandered off, presumably for a break. We, on the queue waited for 15 minutes for a new person to return. When it was my turn to check in the process took no more tan 30 seconds whilst for others it had taken 10 minutes and more. Dreadful experience. The choice of entertaining films was limited on my flight; normally AC has a wide choice."
Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Pros: "Great service, multiple meal/snack services and staff was friendly and helpful when needed,"
Cons: "The customer service line through telephone was not very helpful and seemed to cause more worry when we ran into a problem with our flight."
Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."
Pros: "It was a direct flight from Toronto to Kelowna."
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "Nothing stood out as being too great. I was too pissed off from the delay to really notice any good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2.5 hours. Ridiculous."
Pros: "I appreciated the early flight, that it was a direct flight, ability to make connection and then complete my journey in one long day. It was on time, smooth flight. Appreciated the offer of water regularly during the flight."
Cons: "Surprised that there is no longer even a small complimentary snack offered."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, the boarding easy, the flight pleasant, good views."
Cons: "Plane employees did not explain what the declaration card was meant to serve. I left mine on the plane by mistake, partly due to complete ignorance of its purpose. Please either put the purpose on the card or have your flight staff explain what passengers will need the card for, once they get to the next inspection point. Don 't take this for granted!! The long walk from the point of deplaning to the center of Pearson Airport was unexpected."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Pros: "I received an overall warm treatment from the staff and the flight wasnt delayed therefore I made it to NYC right on time for my appointment :) Thanks Air Canada!"
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and unloading. Cabin service was fine but the food in economy was marginal."
Cons: "The food was too TV dinner like. Lufthansa did much better."
Pros: "Since it was a very short flight from LGA to Toronto, I had no complaints, The worst part of the experience is dealing with the customs procedure at Toronto Airport before the flight but I guess that was only to be expected"
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The attendants on the flight were very unprofessional - they laughed the entire time during our boarding and safety demo. They were more interested in talking to the ground crew outside then welcoming the guests on their flight."
Cons: "There was no in seat screens for entertainment. Space was much more cramped than other Air canada flight we had. Knees were against seat in front. No snacks provided only drinks. Food was available for purchase."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Felt like spam in a can."
Pros: "Got to spend the night in Toronto unexpectedly."
Cons: "Due to Air Canada's I missed my flight to Amsterdam. I missed out on a day of sightseeing and having fun and Amsterdam instead I spent a day in Toronto. I was able to get on a flight 24 hours later. This missing connection happens routinely with Air Canada, for some reason they have not managed to fix the error."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Pros: "Attendants were conscientious, hospitable."
Pros: "Food from Montreal to London."
Cons: "Food from Vancouver to Montreal."
Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to Air Canada fault, no crew at the gate to provide updates, forced to gate check all carryons, missed connection AND rebooked connection. Canada was lovely, too bad I can't say the same about Air Canada."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."
Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."
Cons: "We were delayed because the plane was late from Toronto, and were told this when we all began to check in up front. When the staff finally did come to the desk at the gate, they still maintained (and rather rudely to some of the other passengers) that the plane would be there by 7-- turns out the plane got there about 7:30, rebooking flights that were going to be missed was like pulling teeth for some of the passengers, and we took off about 8 (1 hr 40 mins late)."
Cons: "I asked a crew member to find me a empty space near me so that i don't need to store my luggage in the way way back, and she said she was too short to open and close those overhead bins. SERIOUSLY, HOW DID YOU GET THE DAMN JOB"
Pros: "The crew, as always, was great. Very helpful, friendly, etc. Everything on the flight was good - had no problems."
Cons: "We flew out of Tampa to Toronto. Our flight was at 10:40 a.m. and we arrived at the airport at 8:05 a.m. Glad we arrived extra early because it took us 2 hours to get to our gate. Why? When we got to the Air Canada check-in area, we discovered a line that seemed to be about a 100 yards long. Air Canada had 3 flights scheduled around 10:00 that day. I heard from another passenger that the check-in desk was not opened until 8:00 and many customers were already waiting. Many passengers were older and did not check-in online. All we had to do was to drop our bags but we were still required to wait in the long line with those that had not checked in yet. It took almost an hour to get our bags dropped and it would have been even slower if we had not checked in online the night before (we were allowed to move to the bag drop line at the very end). The only positive about that experience is that at least Air Canada had a representative "directing traffic" to get passengers through the line as quickly as possible."
Cons: "The entertainment very bad the tv was yellow"
Pros: "Comfort & punctuality"
Cons: "They should giving out headphones for business class to use the entertainment system"
Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
Pros: "Because I had missed my original connecting flight, the airlines booked me at an overnight hotel and my new flight seat number was premium economy. This was fine in the end, but in the moment I practically cried."
Cons: "Again, not being delayed and having to miss my original connecting flight would have been best."
Pros: "Everything was good about this flight"
Cons: "They need to have at least 5 to 10 vegetarian meal on board."
Cons: "lost my luggage. after they found it, they took a week to deliver. no response to my claim for compensation"
Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable, and the food was excellent."
Pros: "cabin crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats cramped; not enough space, especially for long haul. Provide more space! Earphones didn’t work. Could not enjoy entertainment. Seat would not recline. Slow checking. Not enough counter staff. Check in counter contractor staff inexperienced and held us up for over an hour due to unfamiliar"
Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "2 times flight per day"
Pros: "The hospitality of the staff Smooth sailing process"
Cons: "The food and the seats and leg room is too small especially for larger people"
Cons: "Changed gates 3 times . No one knew what was going on. Late flight. Request for wheel chair not fulfilled. Very tight transfer. Very far to another gate when transiting from kL to Yangon. Ridiculously far. My first n last time with Malaysia airlines."
Pros: "easy securityand boarding at kl"
Cons: "food bland"
Cons: "Connecting Time"
Pros: "Lovely people an caring all the way through."
Cons: "They changed my seat without telling me and the new seat has a faulty video monitor and also a faulty USB port.. no compensation received.. terrible airline"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"
Cons: "Super crowded and not much room in between rows, I aspected a bit larger and more comfortable plane for an international flight"
Pros: "Web checkin and Baggage Drop were precise which saved time. Few passengers do not matter these two (2) important features but this is efficiency to a minimum!"
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
Pros: "comfort and entertainment"
Pros: "Attendants were very good"
Cons: "12 hrs in the air!!!"

Cons: "Bathroom line"
Pros: "Second flight was quite empty and the plane was in much better shape"
Pros: "We like to thank you for all your staff are good taking for all of us. We would like to make recommends it to all our friends. May the Living Lord and our Almighty God bless you, your staffs and your business abundantly! Amen!"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Cons: "Bags didn't arrive at the destination"
Pros: "Despite recent tragedies that led to loss of life and aircraft, the flag carrier of Malaysia seems to be well on the road back to good health and prosperity. This is a win-win situation all 'round. From being re-booked to an earlier flight by their impressive ground staff to excellent in-flight service and airmanship during the ride, the experience was truly one of the nicest airline experiences in recent memory. With improvements at MNL coupled with this fine experience, I now have another option to choose from when traveling by air both within SEA and beyond. Kudos to all."
Cons: "Though not MH's fault, having to queue for nearly 2 hours at KLIA to clear immigration formalities was an extremely rude welcome back here, considering that it took me less than 30 minutes in June to clear formalities at the "Budget Terminal.""
Pros: "Plane (A380)"
Cons: "Limited choice menu, some minor malfunctioning seats & screens"
Pros: "Flight was on time - to the detriment of my late connecting MAS flight from DAR"
Cons: "Food was okay but entertainment was non existent"
Cons: "I was having 10hrs of layover in Malaysia, the airline neither facilitates with any transit lounge, room, and lunch. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."
Pros: "Fodo was great."
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."
Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "Routing convenience if you are heading to Kuala Lumpur."
Cons: "Business class service falls short of other comparable airlines. Extensive auction of business class seats packs the cabin resulting in full fare passengers not getting a service representative of the class fare. Wines offered could be better."
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Pros: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr. The agents in malysia airlines couldn't check us into the connecting flight because it's co share with China airlines and was rude to us when we questioned them why since we bought the tickets from them. We need up having to run to the connecting flight at Kuala Lumpur because the arriving flight was late. Very unprofessional"
Cons: "We bought the entire ticket under Malaysia airlines with connecting flight out of Kuala Lumpur to Taipei in 1 hr. The agents in malysia airlines couldn't check us into the connecting flight because it's co share with China airlines and was rude to us when we questioned them why since we bought the tickets from them.

Due to the limitation on the carry-on luggage, I had to place my camera batteries and other stuffs to the check-in luggage at the check in counter in Washington DC.
