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: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."

She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Pros: "Although we flew economy, we received excellent service from an attendant from the Philippines."
Cons: "We have no complaints."

Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "My steward, Gabriel, provided service that exceeded my expectations. He made the long haul more bearable."
Cons: "The shape of the seats was not optimal for my height/size."
Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."
Pros: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs. Local American airlines pay more attention to passengers even in economy class. Will not recommend traveling from Mumbai to Doha via Qatar airways."
Pros: "the flight was smooth, comfortable and a lot faster than DOHA - BOSTON."
Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."

Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
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."
Cons: "delays with little information and compensation"

Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."

Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."
Cons: "Before engines shut down and fasten seat belt sign off people were removing bags from the overhead. Passengers were not required/forced to stow bags overhead, blocking egress from window seats."
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Pros: "Nothing really stood out. Having a pillow and blanket for every seat is a plus."
Cons: "Plane wasn’t cleaned very well, trash in the seat back pocket. Was given a meal that wasn’t on the menu and was unedible. At the end of the flight they spray air freshener down the entire aisle which is very concentrated."

Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "ground staff was unable to provide information about the delay"
Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"
Cons: "Food of course"
Pros: "The staff were nice."
Cons: "Everything except the staff"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"

Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Nothing much I liked other than it was a regular (A321) plane service: nothing stood out for me. Nevertheless, still would travel with them because of the competitive price."
Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."

Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."

Cons: "Asked for water 2 x with none ever brought"

Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"
Pros: "Seats were superb. Competitive price"
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: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "dozens of infants all screaming and scattered across the whole plane food was strangely not good at all although we had a vegetarian meal pre booked"
Cons: "The while tip was so bad"
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."

Cons: "Boarding was not comfortable, felt like you being pushed like animals"
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarking. Polite crew members."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order so there were often long waiting times. Nor were the bathroom engagement lights working so it appeared to be vacant when it was occupied. Food and announcements were too frequent for a late night flight - only 2 hours to sleep on a 6 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."
Pros: "Business lounge & airport in Muscat efficient in operation"

Cons: "The food was really sad"

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."
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: "Nice Service. On ground is ok. At least people are not rude. In flight is also ok. Nothing special. That's ok for me as long as they are not rude or obnoxious."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. This is such a short flight I normally watch series. Their selection is not the best. Boarding in Muscat Airport is always a mess."
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: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "Although they claimed to be affiliated to StarAlliance, they were not able to include my StarAlliance membership number."
Pros: "Everything was awesome!"
Cons: "Was bumped off my flight without notice, because my flight was delayed 30 minutes. Arrived at the airport before the gate closed to tell me I was on a flight 7 hours later. Oman air employees were incredibly rude and unwilling to help."
Pros: "Crew, on time departure and ahead arriavel"
Cons: "Food was unexpected from Oman air."
Pros: "The price was great and the service and planes were adequate for a relatively short flight."
Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."
Pros: "-Muscat airport must have aero-bridge -the crew is apologetic to serve alcoholic beverages-sneaked in wine bottle 15 minutes before descent/touchdown; emirates etihad have no qualms openly and freely serving alcohol in international flights. -leg space is cramped. -did not announce baggage belt -did not inform ambient temperature and other weather details"
Cons: "The seat was atrocious"
Pros: "I liked it when we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The seats are rediculously small and rather uncomfortable. It took way too long for us to be served beverages. And when I needed more water, no one was around to bring it. They delivered the food and then took ages to collect it once we were finished. The sound for the in flight entertainment was broken on my consol. There seemed to be a problem with the air flow: it was really hot on both flights."
Pros: "A/C in aircraft was not adequate when aircraft on ground"
Pros: "Only a 45 minute flight, but we were able to start watching their large collection of movies as soon as we boarded. Far better than comparably priced low cost carrier, don't hesitate to fly them."
Cons: "Since it was a very quick flight there was no service, not even a quick beverage service that you would find on similar length flights elsewhere. Still a great bargain and good experience."
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: "Most comfortable seats on the sector Lahore to Muscat, flat beds. Lounge arrangement at Muscat airport was very comfortable given that I had a long layover. Food served was mostly good and the attending crew were quite courteous!"
