Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew really cares about their passengers"
Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."
Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."
Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."
Pros: "The purser and the business class cabin attendants were amazing. Great choice of meals. Fantastic experience"
Cons: "More refreshments"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable. Everything about our flight was better than we have come to expect from most other airlines. To highlight one surprise - the in-flight meals were high quality."
Cons: "DOHA to NY. I board the plane to find out that Qatar SWITCHED SEATS ON ME that I selected months ago without any notice at all! Got stuck in middle seat on the wing! I emailed Qatar you know what they said? "Seat assignments can never guarantee." No voucher or anything offered! Fly something else!!"
Pros: "I like that they deliver me safe and sound to Vietnam"
Cons: "I would prefer no interruptions while I am watching my movie"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."
Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Unfortunately, my baggage was lost on this flight, which will make it very difficult to climb Kilimanjaro!"
Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"
Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

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 ??"

I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes.
