Airline reviews

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."

Pros: "Easy Boarding, nice crew"
Cons: "More vegetarian food options"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"

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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"

Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food is so bad and it's finish quickly and there's no Choice is. And there's one point Why the flight stops tow times in Vietnam going and back It's should one time and back to Doha"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."

Pros: "Punctuality, Crew assistance"
Cons: "Refreshments are very basic and dry"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Price"

Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."
Cons: "Smells from others"

Pros: "The only minus was that my luggage did not arrive with me but it come back the following day. Prior to this I was given the sume of 50usd for the inconveniences caused"

Pros: "I was most disappointed when I got to the check in counter only to be informed that I was on "stand by" That was quite strange consideirng that the flight was not free, I had booked early called a day priot to the flight for confirmation. Though I was later allowed to fly but such treatment was most unnecessary. On the whole the flight was good"

Pros: "The crew was great, and the food was fine for a short flight. It wasn't great, but appreciated."
Cons: "When I booked, I chose my seats, but then they got changed. I was able to get an acceptable change, but was almost put in a situation where i would not have been comfortable."

Cons: "The arm rest does not go up all the way."

Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"

Cons: "Veg Biryani instead of pasta plz"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On the 15th. Nov during my flight to India, I have made an online check in though did not receive an e ticket. I arrived the airport 70 min before the flight. The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Wheel chair service was excellent"

I went online there was no option to rebook. Sent an e-mail with booking ref for date change agreeing to even pay fare difference, no reply received from Air India. Pathetic service"

Pros: "Actually ther nothing to like except it’s a direct flight"
Cons: "The service is very very poor compared with any other competitor in each and every aspect including fare and service. They should be ashamed to charge/ sell the seats which have problems. The entertainment system wasn’t working for me for a paid seat and unfortunately they also couldn’t turn it off completely until half of my journey and finally they covered the monitors with blankets to stop the light so that we were able to sleep just for 3 hours out of 15 hour journey. Again this is for a paid seat and they proudly say it’s the same issue for atleast 40% of the seats"

Cons: "I had to elbow people who refused to queue to get to the ticket counter when my row was called. Flight was 10 mins late boarding. The plane is run-down looking."

Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Display screens didn’t work properly and one had to Press on random points on the screen to get the movie screen going"

Cons: "I was there at airport 35 minutes before boarding time and the crew mentioned that the flight was closed.

Also, as a result of it, I had to pay extra money for Luggage to Mumbai.They were very uncooperative"

Cons: "1. The dirty toilets. They don't stock them with tissues 2. Some seats entertainment systems dont work at all and for others the audio doesn't work 3. The selection options in movies 4. Much older flight"

Pros: "food"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Best food on an airline I have had in a very long time."
Cons: "Movie selection weak as was music selection."

Cons: "The plane was incredibly dated, did not include any type of internet (I would have bought for a premium given the 14 hour flight!), nor basic navigational info, so passengers were left not knowing any details about trip progress throughout the duration of flight. This is as close as one gets to flying in 1992."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "They got me home in one piece"
Cons: "Crew allowed all the passengers to board and then announced a technical problem that took 2 hours to fix. Making people sit another two hours (in the middle of the night) before a 16-hour flight is ridiculous. Also as I've previously experienced on Air India, the bathrooms are inadequately supplied and literally held together with tape and stickers, when they are working at all."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything other than leg room."

Pros: "Refurbish Economy seats, they are in bad shape"
Cons: "Smelly bathrooms. Dirty carpets in aisles."

Pros: "Air India was great for both international & domestics flights. AI planes are in bad need of refurbishing but the staff, service and food was excellent."
Cons: "Interior of the plane needs some refurbishing."

Pros: "Direct flight Leg space"

Pros: "Nothing is good"
Cons: "Everything. This airlines delays the flights for a reason. If a flight is delayed the passenger will somehow struggle and argue with Air India to get an accommodation. Once the passenger reaches the mediocre hotel, which has already a deal with some person from Airlines, they basically are providing business to such hotels. All this show is put up at the expense of Travellers' time, money and energy. Never gonna travel with this airlines again. About 10 of us on the same day missed the connecting flight to British Airways BA138 because of 1.45 delay from Air India flight AI 51. We suggest British Airways not to show up this shitty airline along with their flights in the iternary."
