When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move.

When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

No one communicated with US I think your airline is typical Arab mentality unless you are white I. E American you don't give a shot about your costumers this is the second arb line I droped I will never take ur plane ever!! When I got to Doha all they did was through stupid voucher for food missed my flight no apology rude as staff disgusted y their behaviour and lack of care missed imprtant meetings NEVER AGAIN RACIST AIRLINE TREAT WHITES WITH RESPECT IT NOT BLACK'??

They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."

Cons: "16 hours flights is too tough for me."
Cons: "Bathrooms became filthy."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Business class seat was very comfortable, crew very friendly"
Cons: "My son has a DPNA for traveling - none of the airline staff was aware of it or what it even means. Traveling with children with disabilities is hard enough, airline and ground staff should not make it more difficult."

Cons: "If you sit near the back, the choice of main dishes may be limited as they may run out. Not sure how this can be addressed well. But the food was quite good."
Cons: "To begin with they checked our boarding pass a minimum of 7 times, it makes one feel like they are in the wrong place. Secondly the seats offer leg room as an LCC, but charging non LCC money for them. Overall poor airline, staff wasn’t kind at all."
Pros: "Cheap airfares, direct flights"
Cons: "Flight crew did not clear cabin at takeoff and landing. Tables left down, seats reclined. Did not enforce standards resulting in restricted egress in case of emergency. Allowed passengers to get up, collect thier bags from overhead compartments immediately after landing and during taxi. Clogged asiles. Poor air con during flight. Extremely cramped seating. Low budget and lax attitude. Consistently late flights On a positive note, direct nonstop flights to major destinations at good rates. You get what you pay for though."
Cons: "No separate boarding line for business class passengers; Staff was clueless in muscat airport and theee was no priority boarding for business class passengers"
Pros: "Priority Boarding for business class. The cabin crew were attentive, cheerful, caring. It's a short regional flight so the older, regional configuration of the seats is appropriate if not a little shabby. Offer of juices, Arabic coffee and dates before take off is very welcoming as is a choice of hot or cold towels. Flight was on time for take-off and landing."

Pros: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "On time departure. Nice lounge"
Pros: "It was only a short trip from Doha to Muscat to Dubai but it went very well. The flights were on time, the plane was comfortable and the staff were very helpful."
Cons: "My only concern was that unless I caught the 4.00 pm flight I had to wait until the 7.30 pm (4 hour layover) or 9.30 pm (2 hour layover) flights from Doha both of which do not get to Dubai until 3.30 am. I could not catch the 4.00 pm as it was a work day. The flight timings are not good."
Pros: "Ease of transfer and information"
Cons: "No option on dietary requirements"
Pros: "Business lounge & airport in Muscat efficient in operation"
Cons: "Seats in business were ok but do not offer the position options that most airlines offer in Business."
Pros: "Nice service"

Cons: "The food and the lack of entertainment. The plane was almost full and two children never stopped arguing loudly."
Pros: "Service was sufficient."
Cons: "We were told our luggage will be on the ramp but we had to wait at the luggage carousel. Our landing was very rough and alarming."
Pros: "I do like few thinks apart from most importance thing such as blanket..! We have asked for blanket at night due to freezing cold the crew has replied sorry the ground staff has forgot to load the blankets to the air craft ."
Cons: "Well pilot was very nice experienced.smootj Takeoff and landing.thank you sir!"
Cons: "1. Waiting in a closed doors transfer bus w/o AC 15+ min just in front of the plane because it wasn't ready for the passengers. (Unaceptable) 2. Flight attendant unable to pick an organized trashbag politely given to her(unaceptable) ; next time all trash will be left in the seat like all passengers do."
Pros: "Straight to my destination"
Cons: "The worst food you could ever have in a expensive flight. Just pretzels and water. And the plane is really old & the chairs are really stiff that hearts the back"
Pros: "Okay legroom, a 787 Dreamliner really is an excellent airplane though so it made up for it. Entertainment options were excellent, easily kept me occupied throughout."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but can't complain about the meat or veggie option."
Pros: "The crew was good. snack was ok."
Cons: "The cramped seats, no width or legroom and I'm not that tall. I think they're the most uncomfortable seats I've flown in. for a short flight they're ok, but I wouldn'tt book a long haul flight with them."
Cons: "Everything, the plane, service, attitude"
Pros: "The same... good flight"
Pros: "It is worth it to pay a little more for exit seats. They were very comfortable. The agents at checkin were very helpful. I came with a backpack, a roller bag I often can carry on and another bag to check.The bag allowance was just one to check. They wouldn't let me carry on my roller bag because it was too heavy. They encouraged me first to rearrange the luggage to make the one light enough to carry on, by putting some in the other bag that was being checked, But I explained that bag was already full. So they urged me to get my two bags wrapped together so that there would not be an extra bag charge. The ticket agent also came out to look for me---I hadn't realized they boarded so early---and walked with me to the gate. That was very nice of them. There were snacks and beverages on both flights and friendly stewardesses, and lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "The second flight I didn't get the exit seats and was a bit cramped, but that was a shorter flight, so it didn't matter much."
Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"

Cons: "Pretty much evevrything"
Pros: "A few select staff.. the rest was rather "meh" or less"
Cons: "Most of the staff were rather inpersonal.. the food is a joke, better off without it. Kind of an embarrassment for a national airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants and crew were amazing! The airline was top notch!"
Cons: "When I finally got thru customs I picked up my bag and it was all wet. Something that smelt like vinegar was spilt on it. Also when my friend who I was traveling with picked up her luggage the plastic was ripped off. That must be some rough handling they have because this was a hard plastic suitcase.. They need to treat the cargo a little less rough."
Cons: "The plan was small"
Cons: "No seats available while waiting to be checked into the gate."
Pros: "It's good"
Pros: "Quick flight, as little time as possible on board!"
Cons: "More than 1 hour delayed flight without annoucing it, plus while on board, earphones were not available nor handed out when I requested them because it was a short flight. Overall poor flight service and airline. They have to improve big time service onboard and on land in Muscat."
