The flight attendant from SFO to Doha was amazing and so eager to serve

Read more about Qatar Airways

The flight attendant from SFO to Doha was amazing and so eager to serve

it would have been great to be disembarked from an Air Bridge instead of being bussed around the airport after a 16 hour Flight.

I changed the flight

Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Pros: "Yeah everything was good flight timing was very accurate I loved their service"
Cons: "Hotel or a waiting area should be arranged in case of flight delay"
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."

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.

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: "The crew was very nice and seemed very accommodating. The flight was on time to leave, or maybe even a few minutes early. The food was very good. Overall it was a very comfortable flight.Oh and the little toiletry bag was a very nice touch. I for sure used the socks in there and the toothbrush was bonus."
Cons: "I didn't have any issues on this flight. Everything was great for me."

did not travel

Good check in attentive crew and quick delivery of baggage

Worst experience

Smooth boarding take off before time and arrived 23 minutes before TIME.

The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.

we have three Returned Air Tickets, Printing charges of Rs. 600.00 was charged on 26.11.2021, through my credit card, for printing of my Air Tickets, at Rajkot. Whereas no charges were Levied from Chandigarh Indigo Flight and Delhi Air India flight On 22.11.2021. Please arrange to refund in my credit card account. An early action is highly appreciable and inform me accordingly Regards N K Bansal 9417555246 NARESHBANSAL115@gmail.com

Pros: "There is not a single thing about this flight and airline worth appreciating"
Cons: "Some of the most unhelpful, incompetent and unprofessional staff i have ever had to encounter. Honestly the worst flight of my life. NEVER flying with Air Arabia again and I recommend everyone else spend a little more money to fly with another airline to avoid the hastle this airline will without a doubt put you through. I have submitted a complaint with Air Arabia, let us see if they even reply"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was on schedule in spite of the fact that one passenger seemed to cause a delay on forgetting to locate his passport from his own carry on ! I also liked the content shown on the screens as they juggled my ken a bit! Food was to taste despite the cabin pressure! The cabin crew were just amazing!"

Cons: "Tried to book baggage and seats online for flight from Colombo to Sharjah but website wasn't working, so called their office in Colombo. Was told it was too late to book baggage so would have to pay more than double the regular charge. I explained repeatedly that I had tried to book it but the website was down but the lady on the phone completely ignored what I was saying. She then said I should have called them to report the problem - insinuating that it was somehow my fault that their website wasn't working. Quite an interesting twist on 'customer service' in a service industry company. Nothing in the email I received from them stated what to do should their waist fail; no number to call, no procedure, nothing. I had to take a 1-hour trip into the city to speak to them directly at their office. The lady there I spoke with simply made a few mouse clicks and the problem was solved. This of course begs the question of why that couldn't have been done over the phone. The lady on the phone put me on hold for over 10 minutes, clearly hoping that I would give up and hang up. Air Arabia should fire this person immediately as she has no business being in the customer service industry if she is going to be so insulting to a paying customer. As a member of the company she sheds a horrible and unprofessional light on it."
