Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals. Tight fit to be maneuvering, literally rubbing elbows."
Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."
Pros: "Business class is the best"
Pros: "Excellent crew, quick serving a lunch on a 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Just don't like all the trips to and from flights on the bus at Doha."
Pros: "The purser and the business class cabin attendants were amazing. Great choice of meals. Fantastic experience"
Pros: "Food choice was good & amazing crew ."
Cons: "Plug for charging phone was not there that cause problem for me as my battery of phone was dead. Shocked to know that."
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Pros: "Great service, as always. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "In flight WiFi is too expensive and unreliable. Compares very poorly to some competitors (free - in business - and fast on Turkish Airlines)"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "I was made to gate check my hand luggage."
Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."
Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Pros: "Patricia (cabin crew member) was particularly nice to us, and encouraged us to move to a row of empty seats so we could lie down and sleep for the second leg of our 24-hour flight. Air ventilation on this plane is excellent. Food was good. my low-lactose meal found me even after I had moved seats. overall excellent flight."
Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."

Cons: "Flight length"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Flat bed in business. Crew as such nothing great."
Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"

Pros: "5 star service"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Cons: "Some Cabin Crew are RUDE fromEven though Cabin Crew manage to gave us what we preferred to eat. They are the best. Doha -Kathmandu. They treated some senior citizens passengers who wouldn’t understand english with some disrespect. In addition, we had some problem with meal that was pre-ordered. It was probably system glitch but our meal selection wasn’t registered and Crew didn’t have idea about our meal."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"

Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "Crew were nice as always and the toilets were clean."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't that great and food was disappointing. My meal was cold and unappetizing. Vegetarian food can be delicious and vegetarian meals used to be good in QA. I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."
Cons: "Wheel chair was not available on arrival. Had to wait 45 minutes"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the bathrooms there was only one type of tissue paper beside the toilet paper. Adding a thicker paper towel like most airlines do would be better so that passengers can clean up any water splashes as soft tissue is not effective for this."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

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: "I did not like the fact that I had to strech my pate and strain my eyes to view the screens. The food was a bit expensive on board unlike online!I feel the variance is unjustifiable. Seats are so squeezed and unadjustable for more comfort!"
Pros: "All the best"
Pros: "The staff onboard is great. That is the only thing I have to say about this airline in a positive light. I will not use them again."
Cons: "no entertainment, no food (without paying high prices for). I will not use this airline again"
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."
Pros: "Food is good and cheap Beverages are cheap Friendly staff On time"
Cons: "Sharjah airport is very dirty"
Pros: "Nothin as I want cancel this journey as noone come in these and I booked tickets for my friends and they said not coming and I called air Arabia company 10 days before journey depart and they refused to give refunds and this site is very poor to help customers for these conditions , very bad"

Cons: "Old Plane and running late -poor facilities at airports"
Pros: "For a domestic flight from Karachi to Lahore, they use a 9-seater row. Good from check in to arrival, baggage out within 5 minutes."
Cons: "No online checkin. BEWARE: flight from a mid-sized domestic city (750k population) had its flight cancelled - I got no notice (Kayak sent me an alert), no offer to rebook, and they couldn’t even handle a refund. Crazy"
Cons: "PIA needs to have a lounge after security at Karachi airport and different boarding times so business class passengers are not waiting in the queue to board and get to seats. Crew was downright rude at times. I was travelling with a 2 year old who was not badly behaved and yet instead of helping or asking if I needed anything, the crew behaved as if they were doing me a great favour when asked for something."
Pros: "Crew service was good enough."
Cons: "Boarding service was just rubbish."
Cons: "Food wasn't as expected"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."
Cons: "There was no information given that pia does not have online check in. The food was horrible on pia. The connecting flight had no vegetarian option for people with dietary restrictions.9"
Cons: "Had I known that the second segment of the flight is Pakistan international airlines I would have never booked the flight on kayak. Very dangerous and third class airline. The sight should clearly show all the details when u search for the flights. As it was showing all flights on Etihad. Will never make reservation on kayak again"
Pros: "less crowd"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food was good. Plane was clean."
Cons: "The checkin process at the Lahore Airport was horrific. Probably won't fly out of there again. The queues were a joke. Most passengers were cutting queues with the help of officials they had bribed. Shockingly one airport staff member checked in five passengers in front of me who weren't even At the airport. This lot was issued boarding passes and luggage tags without a problems. An immigration officer also stamped their passports without a question. No wonder Pakistan is and will always be a third world country. Despite the excessive airline and airport staff the simple process took me over an hour. I only got my turn after arguing and pleading my case with the airline staff repeatedly. Seriously this is the worst airport to fly out off!! You have been warned. Use Lahore airport at your own risk!!"
Cons: "Disembarked through stairs despite tunnel available, seems the front gates of plane did not open. Also they transported the passengers in normal coasters not through airport bus"
Pros: "I like the comfartability of flight"
Cons: "everythimg was good"
