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"

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: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."

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."

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."

Some passengers ordered hot salmon, this made me nauseous during flight. My meal included a fruit dish, slice of tomato, 2 slices of deli beef roast, bun, butter, jam, and coffee pudding dessert and 10 minutes into meal received hot cheese sweet cake with syrup. The combination of food was not appealing."

Pros: "I like the crew"
Cons: "It's kind costly flight than air India but , not better than air India , the seats were not comfortable , the food , if a Asian person is traveling then, I think you should provide him the Asian food"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "this flight was sold as a normal economy class flight including 1 checked bag. in reality it was sold as a hand baggage only one way fare and a economy with baggage on the return. like that makes any sense. you going to buy luggage and things to fly bag with???

Cons: "Not enough room. Uncomfortable"

Pros: "I enjoyed my time in Ukraine before the nightmare of UIA began"

When we arrived on the runway at our destination we had to sit waiting for 40 minutes. The plane's seats are excruciatingly narrow, there are no personal entertainment consoles, and the food is similar to that found in a Soviet cafeteria. Communication with passengers was disorganized and ineffective."

Pros: "The second flight (operated by both Ukraine and Turkish was good."
Cons: "nothing really."

Cons: "no personal TV's on a 10 hour flight... thats absolutely ridiculous no WIFI on a 10 hour flight... again.. AWFUL! Why would I ever take this airline ever again? Worst 10 hour flight I've ever had. All of the other airlines (your competitors) have everything. You need to up your game"

Pros: "It was fast and on time"

Cons: "Small space for your feet, you go down with staircase in minus 23 degrees"

Pros: "Not much. UIA is like Frontier Airlines in the USA...bottom of the barrel...totally no frills...simply cattle cars moving people around like trucks move pineapples around. Ukrainians are used to this sort of thing - but you might not be if you're a foreigner."
Cons: "Bought two RT tickets with baggage fees included from Kiev to Prague...and was not charged a baggage (or any other) fee on the way out. Had no other problems in any other respect either. However, on the way back to Kiev from Prague I WAS charged a baggage fee...by an "agent" that UIA uses to check-in its passengers in Prague...and it was not a small (or normal) baggage fee either. Rather, it was 50 euros per bag ($110 US dollars) in total for two under-the-allowed weight and size bags. OUTRAGEOUS!! I paid the fee with my Am Ex card and when I complained to Am Ex they froze the fee instantly. I think this "agent" will lose by the time all the dust settles. My point is this: BEWARE when you use UIA outside of the Ukraine...because it employs clearly unscrupulous agents."

Pros: "Service staff was friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Expensive food with nothing for free included, no entertainment counsel"

Pros: "At least we had space since this flight was not full. The seats are tiny and cramped so the extra space of an empty seat was needed."

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."

Cons: "not direct fligth"

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"
