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: "Easy Boarding, nice crew"
Cons: "More vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the onboarding staff was exceptional. Some onboarding staffs were unfriendly."
Cons: "Not allowing a laptop bag unlike Etihad, Emirates and other airlines was a bummer."
Cons: "Too much A/C, feel cold."
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Everything alright"
Cons: "Poor service and flight was dirty"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No alcohol served"
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "Aircraft was brand new -- very clean and everything worked well. All flights were on time. Crew was excellent -- very courteous and helpful. Overall -- very good."
Cons: "Food is good except Chicken coconut curry"
Pros: "Business class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No WiFi, Poor list of shows"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Flat bed in business. Crew as such nothing great."
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Any time dining, excellent food offering, excellent drink offering, and excellent service. Unbeatable!"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. It was hard to squeeze through for business class boarding."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "Great hospitality"
Pros: "All would have been good if there was no animal inside a 14hr long flight. Dog allowed to use restroom that passengers uses and it was a BIG dog in a controlled environment for a 14 hour long flight. Hugely disappointed with the pet policy of Qatar airways, especially for all the parents traveling with kids."
Cons: "HUGE DOG INSIDE A 14 HR FLIGHT FROM QATAR TO CHICAGO DISAPPOINTED WITH QATAR AIRWAYS PET POLICY"
Pros: "For the most part the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Food quality and quantity."
Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."
Pros: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Cons: "The flight attendant dropped a suitcase on my head when I was sleeping. I had terrible headache, nauseous, and dizzy with some really uncomfortable neck pain. The staff tried to get me to take medicines that I could not read for nauseous but I would not. They said they were prescribed by a doctor! What doctor. The flight was the longest worst ever! 14 hours - nothing to eat or drink! In addition, the head flight attendant said the baggage compartment over my head was a problem as it opens all the way down and bags fall easily out. The bag was easily 30 pounds and landed directly on my head. I suffered a concussion."
Pros: "Entertainment list were great."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Not much except the on board crew are nice."
Cons: "The first flight from KTM the TV didn't work and I didn't fit into the seat. The most uncomfortable seat in a long time. The second flight from Doh to JFK was not good. I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."
Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"
Pros: "Crew welcomes"

Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."
Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Cons: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."
Cons: "I got sick so I had to leave India. I tried for 5 days in a row to cancel this flight but the cleartrip.com website is just a bad labirinth. You are not able to cancel the flight from mobile( when I was in India), you are not able to access the website from Europe."

Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access.

We were charged 3000rps each for overweight luggage and the staff at the check in counter in Jaipur were really rude about it. After having paid an extra 3000 rps which was almost like buying another flight ticket to new Delhi for just a 35 min flight, our flight was 1 hour delayed!! Definitely we will NEVER fly with indigo again!!!"
Pros: "As above no food score as didn’t buy anything and no entertainment score as none on board b"
Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink.
