The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy.

Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."

Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "boarding process was efficent"
Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Dreamliner"

Cons: "Food and service and crew"

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."

Pros: "Films Service"
Cons: "Not enough films"

Pros: "This has been one the good experience I had in so many years of travel"
Cons: "I requested a special meal but was not given what I wanted. But overall decent food"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight and crew"
Cons: "The plain was very old."

Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."

Pros: "Great service. Great food. Solid entertainment."
Cons: "But the onboarding was a bit disorganized. The zone method was confusing to non native speakers so everyone was confused. It then become chaotic. Also the 320 product was too different than the 350 flight"

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage and I am getting no straightforward answer"

Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."

Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."

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 ??"

Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

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

Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"

Pros: "Nothing."

Cons: "Smells from others"

Pros: "Great flights. Lots of room in economy, which is needed for a 14 hour flight. Also excellent personal entertainment system in the seat. This was my first flight on Qatar airlines. I will definitely book on Qatar again."

Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice selection of movies. Very tasty vegetarian meals. Nice amount of recline on seats."
Cons: "After selecting seats in advance and reconfirming the day before flight upon check in, on arrival at airport our seats had been reassigned to the absolute worst seats on the airplane. The service was not good, with dirty food trays being left in front of us for over an hour at a time, service request call buttons going unanswered, and no beverage service until long after meals were served. Seats very firm for such a long flight. While meals were very good, snack options were terrible."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The boarding Schdule"

Pros: "I may never travel with this airline"
Cons: "I hate traveling with this airline I couldnt sleep or rest During jurny the sttaff we were disturbing , there attention was how to purchase there meal and do there busines with out thinking about the thime and the passangers condation The tiolet was in abad condation and i couldnt use it"

Pros: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"

Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Totally useless. Dirty plane, lousy service. Was ready to pay for refreshments as I had to take this low cost airline for time reasons. When trying to pay with a credit card the stewardess was telling me it was a debit card (as if I didn't know what my cards are) - after a while it appeared she mixed online and offline cards for credit and debit cards, yet she was increasingly arrogant while trying to convince me my card is a debit one. So I tried to pay cash with 100 EUR bill and she told me she was going to return the change in Turkish lira! The male steward was just standing next to the trolley without saying a word, looking afraid of his aggressive lady colleague. That's what I call customer service! The particular flight was PC861 Kuwait - Istanbul on June 17."

Pros: "Everage"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "No things"
Cons: "All of things"

Pros: "There was no flight entertainment. Food had to be purchased. For international flight, I found it very inconvenient to travel with this airlin. Worst of all, I did not realize that in order for me to continue to my connection flight to Dubai, I had to get my luggage, apply for Turkey visa and leave the transit area and check-in again. There was no assistance on the flight nor outside when we arrived to guide passengers to the connecting flights. Overall, i would not recommend this airline nor, Easyjet (Amsterdam-London) and Skypicker the company that booked my flights to anyone. I found overall experience, frustrating, unprofessional, delays, luggage weight limitation, unnecessary visa requirement, etc."

Pros: "The updates"

Pros: "Minimal delays"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks"
