Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Little things like being greeted by name when boarding, funny safety video"
Cons: "Wasn't the biggest fan of the food"
Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."
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."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "it would be better if the flight departure on the scheduled time"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Great service with very friendly crew who pamper you all through the flight. Delicious food served at the time you like. Also, the Q Suite design is very comfortable, private & flexible."

Pros: "Great service onboard!!"
Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"

The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."

If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"
Pros: "The classy servieces in the plane..the plane it selfe is excellant"

Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."

Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"

Pros: "Boeing 777 was very comfortable and quiet. Power provided to each seat. Food and drink were readily available."

Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"

Pros: "The food."
Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."

Cons: "Nothing. It was what you expect. Comfortable transportation and no crashes."
Pros: "Going home"
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in.

Cons: "The boarding process took forever! Had to go through multiple questionare"
Pros: "The gate agent kept us well informed about our delayed flight - she kept calling to find out status of the flight and reported her findings to us after every call.

Cons: "Got a call at 3:00 am saying our flight would be delayed an hour from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. and offered optional flights at no charge. Stayed with original flight since this was a direct flight. The flight ended up being 3 1/2 hours late. We had to wait for a ferried plane from Chicago. Just wondering if United knew at 3:00 am that they had problems, why did it take 13 hours for them to resolve it?"

Pros: "Great flight everyone was really helpful thank you United."
Pros: "Finally home!"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good"

Pros: "Friendly staff, outgoing and professional"
Cons: "Wifi charges are a bit gouging"
Pros: "The flight crew seemed worn and a bit surly. They ran out of two of the meals and the one I got was oddly seasoned but it was warm. We sat on the ground quite a while while they fixed the PA system with no water then there was a women they'd let on the flight even though she had a different destination - supposedly they spent an hour looking for her bag on the plane. Do you hold up a whole plane load of people that got on the right plane for the woman that didn't and how come when they checked her ticket - no one noticed?"
Cons: "Kansas City airport is in need of a complete remodel."
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."

Cons: "Malfunctioning seat in front of me"
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "on schedule even though ORD had some weather issues but yes good flight.."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Fortunately I had three seats to myself so I stretched out and got some sleep after the meal. Many movies to choose from for entertainment."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Cons: "united food is the worst"
Pros: "Many selection of movies to watch. There were also a nice selection of shows to watch."

Cons: "Announcements made in piercing tones' I understand the necessity and that they are made in several languages, however they were loud and jarring.."
Cons: "Touch screen did not work on display unit. Was fine because I read, but still."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and welcoming when service was provided. The food was delicious - quinoa salad was unexpected and delicious. Also enjoyed the ice cream at the end of the meal"
Cons: "The flight on the ticket stated it was a Swiss flight operated by United. When we arrived we asked which kiosk to check in and we were misinformed. It would be a time saver if the airlines would educate their employees on where the customer should check in."
Cons: "food is so bad, low quality and small portion looong period before main meal and last meal"
Cons: "We have to pay for food on a 2 hour flight? Just snacks, no meal even though it was dinner time. The stewardess doing announcements was obnoxious. She had an odd way of speaking with strange pauses, she kept calling it Kansas instead of Kansas City, and she made condescending remarks about it."
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "It's was quick."
Cons: "Delayed a bit but mostly ok."
