Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."
Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."

Pros: "Everything very smooth. Staff delightful and always helpful!"

Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Food quality and quantity Cramped seating"
Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."

Cons: "15 passengers waiting in line for the bathroom"
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."
Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Pros: "Not crowded plane. Some fantastic flight attendants. Very helpful and dedicated to make customers happy and help us enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seating. A couple of not so friendly flight attendants. Crew on the ground in Doha not very attentive or cooperative"
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "no time now"

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "I was promised Wifi on all flights when I called customer service and I was frustrated I only had it on 2 out of the 4 flights ... And the connection was bad. I needed to work and planned on it after I heard the wifi was available for purchase."
Cons: "Did not like there was no wifi when I was told there was. The food was good and the service as well... It was comfortable !"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Pros: "No issues with this flight."
Cons: "I adore delta! Great airline, I fly delta whenever possible"
Pros: "Leg room in comfort +"
Cons: "Removal of food trays could be done sooner"
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "I sat in the last row, in the window seat, except there was no window at all. It was the only area of the plane without a window. The seat did not recline, and there was no window. It was claustrophobic to say the least."
Pros: "Exit row seating for no extra charge"
Cons: "Seat mate not friendly"
Pros: "The crewe members were great."
Pros: "Decent leg room for economy, lots of food offered, excellent choice of movie. Friendly crew."

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "Delta Comfort was no where near as good as a similar class on other airlines, such as Air France or KLM."
Pros: "Clean Washrooms"
Cons: "N A"
Pros: "Boarding was easy for a large number. Seats were comfortable. The crew was pleasant and attentive. The food was very good actually. Love the Mile High Tea!"

Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "plane was a bit old. tiny tv screen"
Pros: "wow, got in 3 minutes early, its a short flight, but its no joke trying to get out of ATL on time! Great job!"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "I got home on the day I planned."
Cons: "This is the second time we've flown from NYC to SC on Delta and it's the second time they messed around with the departure time. We actually got back to SC pretty much on time but the confusion is aggravating and stressful when you're ready to get where you are going. Both times we got to SC when scheduled and Delta appears to think that makes everything fine. Not quite..."
Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."
Pros: "Great to have movies on a domestic flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Boarding was a shambles resulting in late departure. Seems to be common in the US, but the zone system of boarding with back of the plane going on last seems counterintuitive and I can't recall it taking so long to board a flight. Also took a long time disembarking."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely recommend . Flight departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Cons: "Got in over an hour late. 140am"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and the newer plane was very very nice!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Crew fantastic"
Pros: "My comfort zone seat"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, professional and overall excellent."
Cons: "I don't care for the MD planes."
Pros: "Kayak tells u the baggage claim and the new gAtes"
Pros: "Very professional and courteous"
Pros: "Delta did a great job - you absolutely can not complain about the food/drink service as they are seemingly constantly walking through the aisles to offer more food and drinks. The coffee is kind of lousy, but I'm sure it is a tremendous challenge to serve good coffee on an airplane."
Cons: "My entertainment system was essentially broken - one of the crew members was very helpful in helping me try to fix it and then giving a voucher for what I thought was a reasonable amount."
Pros: "Food was good for coach. Took off and landed on time"
Cons: "Cramped in coach. Observed a little bickering between crew members on movement of carts down the aisles. Seat back entertainment controls very slow in response time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment."
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."
Pros: "Being interviewed as I waited in line to check my luggage. Personal touch and felt good safety screening. Bottle of water given out. The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew. I was in the back of the plane. Very cheery despite the masses of people."
Cons: "Seat size small. Although I appreciate the serving of food during the flight, felt a lot of junky carbs and sugar."
Pros: "Good staff, crew, amenities in the airport, courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Schiphol has an excellent system in place -- you get through all the checkpoints to the gaits in less than 15 minutes. Then at the gait, at least at Delta/KLM they re-check all the documents twice, and that part takes 40 minutes -- so be prepared to come early to take that into account."
Cons: "Old planes, disinterested crew, full flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "Lisa I. was one of the best flight attendants I have ever observed. She enjoys being on the airplane with people who need help, comfort, to complain about anything. She was all over the airplane and refused a tip when I tried to insist she accept it. She said, “I have been doing this for a long time, I am tipped by seeing passengers having a pleasant flight.” I had goosebumps and the two women to my left and right were also impressed by her professionalism. I pray that Lisa is working on my flight home!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, even with 30 to 45 MPH winds, the plane was gentle. The passenger next to me was scared. Lisa said to let her know if she needed anything, the woman was fine the whole flight. Lisa came by with extra snacks and she smiled and said she was doing well!"
Pros: "Boardered ok"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, crew member was short and impatient with elderly people sitting next to me."
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Nothing extraordinary, just solid positive experience from checking in on my phone thtough disembarking"
Cons: "I like the convenience of the built-in multifunctional screens (like on Alaska flights) that AA are lacking"
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."
Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth and arrived more than thirty minutes early."
Cons: "Flight attendants did the basics without showing any enthusiasm for their job or appreciation for the passengers in business class. Food service in business class was uninspiring as there was no element of "international cuisine" on a flight where some dining creativity would have been welcome."
Pros: "The crew members were extremely helpful. It was a full flight and hard to find space for all the carry-on luggage, but an extremely helpful stewardess did a great job of finding space for my bag. She was attentive and friendly for the beverage service and really made me feel welcome."
Cons: "Over booked flight"
Cons: "Not gotten cancelled on August 18 and delayed for 24 hours with no compensation for hotel we had to get. Then would be nice to not get delayed 4 times on today’s flight arriving home at 2 in the morning on a day we HAVE to go to work because we already are in trouble for missing previous day."
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Cons: "Again, I paid for extra legroom when I purchased seats for a British airways flight and at check in I was rerouted to an American Airlines flight. The seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. I want a refund!"
Pros: "Gate agents were timely."
Cons: "There was not a wheelchair at the arrival as previously agreed with American. No food on board - just drinks. Boarding took forever."
Cons: "There were no inflight entertainment. This is the only international flight I have ever taken that didn’t have any. For an 8+ hour flight, it’s ridiculous not to. The food was also worse than typical airline food."
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Everything is excellent"
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "i never LEFT!"
Pros: "They were pretty much on time."
Cons: "The Gate Agents give NO information that could be useful. A passenger is at best a Number. I would not want to be non-traveler."
Pros: "Boarding at LAX went smoothly. A321 was clean and as comfortable as Main Cabin can be. Entire crew was excellent throughout the flight. I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Loved the fact that the pilot frequently spoke to us during the turbulence. Crew was great."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment."
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Old plane, broken entertainment system, and blankets were not clean on a 9 hour flight."
Cons: "The cabin was extremely hot, taxi time and time sitting in the plane took way to long. Air flow was extremely limited"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good price"
Cons: "No own TV, plane visibly old"
Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Cons: "Can not check in online!"
Cons: "Seemed like most people had the same boarding group so the queue was a cluster"
Pros: "Service on board"
Cons: "Left an hour late; missed connecting flight. Our final destination was DC; connecting flight was to Philly. Wanted them to Serbs us to DC since we missed our flight. But, the agent said he couldn't due to airline regulation. I was willing to pay more. I'm not happy about it."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "Good service, good snacks/lunch"
Cons: "Really old plane,9 hour flight should be something newer and nicer"
Pros: "Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "The flight was late due to flight attendants coming from another plane! American Airlines is a billion dollar company; they should have had flight attendants on stand-bye. Then we had to wait an hour just to get out luggage..."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Delayed. Flight attended thought I didn't speak English. Was ordered around. Checked in but seats were still given away."
Pros: "Watched movies most of flight and the wine was free. The pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."
Cons: "Baggage claim at IAD"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."
Cons: "I think it went as well as possible. No delays in boarding and only short delay waiting for a gate at SFO. The flight crew were very friendly and drinks and food were adequate."
Pros: "lousy crew — one was too busy reading his newspaper to bother telling people who were waiting for the toilet that there was another unmarked toilet right behind where the people were waiting"
Cons: "a newer plane. the plane was so old that there were no monitors and the seats were very difficult tilt back (about two inches)"
Pros: "More leg room on Swiss Air flight I ended up getting rebooked on and smaller plane seating only 2 on the sides, so much better than bigger Air Canada plane on outbound flight to Europe"
Cons: "Again, I did not make the DC flight,not delayed as an email had announced but closed at least 20 mins prior to departure, so no one was let in (after running through Zurich airport, again, no help). Rebooking possible and easy for my route, difficult for those going to DC and further west."

Picked for security which was fine except stood in line for 1/2 hr. while those suppose to check us were sitting and laying around. Make me too late for helping my husband ( in a wheelchair) onto plane."
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.

Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."

Pros: "Good food and frequent water service. Pleasant attendant s"
Cons: "Malfunctioning seat in front of me"

Cons: "Though I did not expect a meal on such a short flight, any entertainment would have been appreciated."
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: "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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours. In 15 minute increments so we kept thinking we were leaving and then it kept getting delayed. Almost missed my brother's graduation from basic training. Not pleased. I would like some kind of compensation for this. Also I am flying back now and my flights have been very delayed and I will arrive at least seven hours later than planned."
Cons: "united food is the worst"
Pros: "Many selection of movies to watch. There were also a nice selection of shows to watch."

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."
