Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
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: "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."

Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."

Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."

Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"
Cons: "On the Boeing 777 series which I flew on, the seats are UNUSUALLY CRAMPED TOGETHER. I have flown for decades internationally: this was absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on."
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."

Cons: "More you to stretch out"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."

Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."

Cons: "Checkin process takes long"
Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."

Cons: "Delay , rebooked on fight. Had to wait 8 hours. I needed a wheelchair .. they put Erin a remote location with a rude assistant in charge of transfers for wheel chairs . She had none. Made me walk 15 minutes to find a place to take my meds. She couldn’t care less."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. It was a nice, calm trip."
Cons: "At least my wife and I were seated together on this trip."
Pros: "I loved the in flight service and entertainment. Also, the flight had seats that actually reclined and I was able to sleep."

Pros: "Priority boarding and bulkhead seating for family travelling with infant."
Cons: "My 'infant on lap' (23 months old) was too big for the airline-provided seat (weight limit 12.5kg, and he weighed 13kg)."
Cons: "The airline sent me on a wild goose chase through the airport only to end up back at the same counter. They then told me it was too late to check in. Do not book tickets with cheapoair-British Airlines said this releasesthem from all responsibilities and cheapoair will do nothing but send you to different people trying to sell you another flight. It was the worst experience every!"
Cons: "Canceled for no reason ca"
Pros: "Boarding was excelllence"
Pros: "Love the 747 upper deck."
Cons: "Lounge needs updated."
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to a family emergency. The only way I could get a “partial” refund was to pay another $700. Makes no sense. I already paid over $1000 for tickets and you want me to give you another $700 in order to give me a refund."
Cons: "no air vents over seats"
Pros: "Flt attendants. Esp the english guy."
Cons: "Once again just some measly pretzels."

Pros: "The gate agent"
Cons: "I had been waiting a few hours for my next connecting flight ant at about 8:00 pm (45 minutes before departure), they announce that our flight might be delayed do to mechanical problems on our plane. It took them 4 hours to fix it. Which was not too bad. What was bad is that they lied to us. Because I missed my connecting flight, they said that they would be waiting for us with our new flights and not to worry. When we arrived in London, we were scrambling to find out where to go. there was several families in front of me that missed their flights and they were having problems trying to re-book their flights. It took about 3/4 hours for me (one person) to re-book my London to Glasgow because I was stuck behind families. I was trying to explain one of BA employees that I (1 person) needed a flight to Glasgow. It was getting late and I was worried that I might miss the last flight of the day and would be stuck in London until the next day. She didn't like that I told her that and didn't want to help me. so it took me about 4 hours in line to get my flight and had to rush to get it. I had also purchased a window sit that I was not able to get. The guy that help me re-book my flight told me that I would have to call for that. Which I did now but the first phone # I called, the guy said that I had to call this other #. I called the # he gave me and a recording comes out that they are too backed up with calls and cannot help me to go to the website. At the website, they are asking for the flight # of the re-booked flight (I only have my original flight #'s on my email). I don't know what happened to the ticket they gave me to board the re-booked flight so I don't have it. I don't know where else to call about my refund and also think I deserve some kind of compensation for missing a day at both airports with horrible treatment and service. CAN YOU HELP ME ON HOW TO TALK TO A REPRESENTATIVE ABOUT MY REFUND AND SOME SORT OF COMPENSATION?"
Cons: "Seat selection process was cumbersome."
Cons: "Worst flight ever! Crew very unprofessional. The plane was filthy and most seats did not recline. It was a night flight but they were unable to turn the lights off. We took off almost an hour later because they did not have ice nor snacks."
Pros: "Airlines gave me a hotel and some food."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, had to catch one the next day. After a transatlantic flight, not the best result."
Cons: "No working entertainment in our entire row. Bad qaulity seats"
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Food was served too late for an evening flight. Food was poor quality. Both the main meal and snack that was given. The hostesses were also very quick to take trays away. Even before we had completed our meals. I will not be flying British again."

Pros: "Grest staff"
Pros: "A lot of people in close proximity. Very good service and food. It worked well."
Cons: "The flight was great but found out night before when I checked to confirm flights that ours were cancelled without notification. We booked through Kayak so not sure what happened. PANIC for sure but a great service provider spent an hour on the phone with me to make sure we made it."
Cons: "The complete handling of everything with weather, communication, gate changes, mgt of people on the ground and non communication of cancellation were unforgivable"
Pros: "Everything about this flight would have been perfect, if not for the delay and missing flight. The crew was extremely nice and accommodating, I enjoyed the spacious seats with complimentary pillow & blanket, and the entertainment was an excellent selection. I also requested to change seats which they were able to do at the gate without hassle."
Cons: "There were a few missing passengers, so our flight decided to try and wait for them (which is extremely kind and generous), however, this caused our flight to have a delayed landing. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight and had to wait in the airport for an extra 6+ hours for the next flight. What should have been a 17 hour travel day turned into a 25 hour travel day."
Cons: "The flight was canceled without reason given and I was not assisted in getting another flight."
Pros: "My seat was great. Glad to have food. Which was okay. Will travel British Airways again"
Pros: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "Flights on time. Food was OK"

Cons: "Staff are surly. Planes are grubby. Flights were late. Won't be using AI ever again"

Cons: "Surly, inattentive flight attendants who were more interested in hanging out than actually working, broken entertainment equipment. I had paid extra for emergency row too. Two bathrooms were out of commission. Just a terrible flight experience. Would fly with anyone else above this airline. 2-for-2 on poor flight experiences."
Pros: "I loved that the airplane was very spacious like there was a lot of leg space. I also liked the foot step where you could change its height."
Cons: "The food did not taste good and the bread was cold and hard to cut. Also me and my father asked for non-veg during both meals however they said we have limited supply and therefore are out of non-veg; no flight should have “limited” supply of anything. My father’s seat also fell down all the way back when he pressed the recliner button; Air India needs to update their air crafts because my father’s back or anything else could have gotten hurt."
Pros: "Check in was easy and smooth. Flights on time."
Cons: "Seating allotment should consider family and kid requirements of passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was surprisingly smooth and food, as anticipated was really good."
Cons: "Neither the touch screen display or the remote worked. Mentioned that to one of the flight attendant who told me that the system will be reset after the food service. That did not happen so after waiting for another 2 hours into the flight, I spoke to another attendant who did reset the entertainment system. It did not work. Brought it to her attention and the response I got was, "Sorry, the flight is full and there is no other seat available". I had to sit through 14 hour long journey looking at other passengers or hear babies cry non-stop !"

Pros: "Time saver"
Cons: "Smelly inside and poor and out dated equipment"
Cons: "Poor customer service, non working entertainment systems, no one care when complained."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Kayak sold me a business class ticket when there was only economy on the flight. That is fraud. No other word for that. Please explain dear Kayak"
Pros: "Very pour quality amenities, horrible food quality even for Indian taste. Most of the screens don't work, seat cushions very bad shape and untidy. Air hostess are useless, no body knows where they are most of the time. Only Reason We chose air India was due to convenient timings."
Cons: "As v mentioned above"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, no proper support or updates were given. The flight tracking page of air India is not updated real time."
Cons: "My seat got changed from the original booking. I️ had to seat among other family members the comfort was disturbed frequently"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Lazy, uninformed and rude staff. Flight 8 hours late. I booked this by paying extra because it was a direct flight, but they changed it anyways because they just do not care. And this is my 5th and last time traveling g by air india, I'm not renting just because I faced this once, I have faced this 4 times.
