Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Pros: "Good staff and service"
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
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: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."
Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"

Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."
Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Decent leg room. New plane."
Cons: "Only one meal was served in about a 6 hour flight. By the end of the flight I was famished."
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."
Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
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: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"
Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."
Pros: "Lounge facilities"
Cons: "There was no place to keep my Cell phone , eyeglasses, or even the book I was reading--- would have liked an alcove or cubby. Loved this feature in Business class when I flew with Emirates. Food choices were better with Emirates. Qatar needs to look into these features in order to beat their competition."
Pros: "Plane is good, seats are comfortable, crew were ok"
Cons: "Food was aweful, you should have like fruiets or somthing for ppl who doesn't like the food, it smelled indian food to me both ways, asked for fruite or snack, they never got back to me after they said we don't have any, but will check, again never came back to me, went after an hr. to the kitchned to find out there was a tray of chips and chocolate, buttom line i was starving both ways from the food, was realy nasty (sorry). If your customers are lots of indians, maybe a reminder for hygiene and picking nose, the man next to me drove me crazy from picking his nose and i told him not to, bath room door they leave it open, limit the indians."

Cons: "too many little children"
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Cons: "food was average"
Pros: "For other people it seemed to work."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"

Cons: "Lactose free meal was disgusting."
Pros: "The overall experience was good."
Cons: "The non-veg food option was limited to a prawn dish only which may not be a good option for all. Should have a chicken or goat meat alternative."
Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."
Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"

Pros: "As expected"
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."

Pros: "Crew behavior, boarding, entertainment channels,food,comfort"
Pros: "Very helpful crew"
Cons: "I like almost every thing."
Pros: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19"
Cons: "sorry had to cancel due to covid-19 still waiting for refund ??"
Pros: "Staff was efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent and nicely served."
Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."
Cons: "- The plane was set to a freezing temperature all the time made it really uncomfortable flight for most of the passengers. - Etihad mostly runs short of veggie food and passengers are asked to go for non veg option. Not cool."
Pros: "Newer aircraft. Fantastic service"
Pros: "Well, it got me from Point A to Point B I guess"
Cons: "You cannot book seats in advance which is fine but one would expect that if you have 3 seats on one reservation, you would at least be seated together - nope 3 window seats all over the plane. Boarding was delayed for no reason. Bags took (no exaggeration) about 1.5 hours to come. And it is a hot mess with no carts"

Cons: "The seats were cramped, small compared to the flight I took from JFK to Abu Dhabi. Again, The boarding was delayed and no announcements were made. I am saying this despite I prefer Etihad for my international flights. This time the experience was lame."
Pros: "Timings r good"
Cons: "Service bad no comfort In the flight means congestion in seats"
Cons: "Since our custom and emigration checking was in Abu Dhabi, in Chicago, the flight used a domestic terminal. For our final leg of the flight, we had to haul all six pieces of luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 3. Then we were told that our American Airlines flight from Chicago to Kalamazoo is not a valid one. So we were booked to a different flight 12 hours later. We had to stay in Chicago for 12 hours on our own. Neither Etihad nor American Airlines provide any support for that time period in Chicago. Since it was Etihad ticket, According to international norm, Etihad should take the responsibility for this problem and compensated passengers."
Cons: "Same type of food. They ran out dinner so served the previous entree. Turn the crew light on for water. No air hostesses showed up."
Cons: "The seats never recline. All the 4 leg seats had reclining ossue"
Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Our Chicago to Abu Dhabi flight was delayed by over 6 hours Our Abu Dhabi layover was long, because the airline ended up canceling/delaying the connecting flight"
Pros: "On time arrival and flooding"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "1. Seat changes are done last minute despite booking the seats online with out informing us. I felt that there was no point securing online seating early. Difficult to adjust seats in the last minute. I was separated from my family. Given wrong information about seats. Had to real work with staff to finally get seats adjusted. Not very easy to work staff. Understanding of English is not that good. 2.Had problems checking the luggage all through despite connection was through star alliance. 3.Had to wait in airport in transit to get boarding passes. Did not understand why it was despite having booked seats early. 4.Seats provided were not good. 5.Also head phones didn't work. I told staff three times and still no response. Finally gave up i had booked because ratings were good. But service was not even close to expectations. Dissapointed."

Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"

Pros: "Timings good."
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance very poor, I suffered a lot."

Cons: "Food wasn't great."
Pros: "A wide variety of entertainment available on board"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage and the claim process is vague. I was told I will be contacted with my claims number at the airport. Thus far I haven't heard anything from the airline. The number given goes straight to voice mail."
Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."
Cons: "I couldn't sleep on the plane."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was good, but the ground staff need to be more real time responsive and should own responsibility."

Pros: "Excellent crew."

Pros: "Goo entertainment options"
Cons: "entertainment options shut down too early and when plane is on the ground"
Pros: "poor seating, too close to each other and seats too narrow for long hours of sitting in an international flight Overall, the Crew had good attitude but appears overworked and very minimum service - no attention given to making the long flight pleasant (just bare basics, I was surprised) Food & beverage service and frequency inadequate."
Cons: "It appeared, not enough thoughts given for little details of comforts to make these long flights comfortable / pleasant enough that people want to return. Announcements often illegible and too soft to hear"
Pros: "Fantastic crew! Good selection for tv, food was good. Baggage checked all the way through, no problems or complaints at all. Will definitely fly Etihad again."
Cons: "Hair was served in the food and the etihad airlines did not do anything other than offer a mere 10k goodwill miles and said even that they don't do but we're doing me a favor by doing so. I would never travel again on this airline ever."

Pros: "On time / shedule ahead departure or arrival."

Cons: "Food. Not served according to the menu. Kochi to Abu Dhabi -vegetarian. Abu Dhabi to Chicago __vegetarian no options. -Vegetarian food not tasty.At last before landing in Chicago some non veg."
Cons: "There was a bad odor of the bathroom, also I asked a blanket from the crew, then after 20 minutes I got it. Also the little rude dealing from the one of the crew. Little islamic programs"
Cons: "They took close to one hour to check us in and give us boarding pass. Once it was delayed, with no time to get things in time for security and boarding we had to rush with two kids. Although there was one checked bag allowed for infant according to the reservations they charged us 100$ for additional bag. Despite them delaying the Check in process they said if I don't pay for the checked bag I will miss my flight. This is becoming more and more of a problem with American Airlines and looks like Etihad cares less for this and they simply told me in Chicago that it was American Airlines issue and not theirs! This is totally frustrating and I will avoid American Airlines connections And future flights with Etihad as well. International travelers watch out for connections with American Airlines."
Cons: "Wheelchair facility should be prompt. we had to wait for an hour to get it.. Also it is not that spacious.."
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclined and I couldn't even use my tray at all. Had to hold me food and drinks in my hand. Unbelievable!!!!!! Horrible experience."

Cons: "The boarding process. Again, not the staff's fault."

Avoid Air India if at all possible."
Cons: "Seats, leg space."
Cons: "Justfly is a scam. Lately prices have also been highest on kayak. I trusted this platform for years and always used it as the first any only option for search but I guess once Expedia bought it it’s just a lousy company."

Cons: "Entertainment system and even the reading lights did not work for the entire 15 hr flight duration."
Pros: "Good. I like it."
Pros: "Staff was doing their job dutifully! Arrival at Chicago quite convenient."
Cons: "Unless AirIndia improves it’s carrier it’s question of time! >50% TVs were nonfunctional! Seat covers are torn at places! Food just ok but ordinary! Overall, one is unimpressed!"
Cons: "They gave seat to 6 to 9 year kid separate from parents. No idea how someone can give a seat to child without any adult next to him. I confirmed seat online on air India site. On the boarding they gave seats in separate row to each family member including kids. I saw there are lots of other people facing same issue. Boarding member are not willing to help until I made a big issue."

Pros: "Saving grace was food otherwise flight was unbearable."
Cons: "Seats of aircraft were broken/torn and virtually non-existant entertainment system."
Cons: "Checking in process was long and not organized."
Cons: "I did not like that during web check in it did not show me where the washrooms are located, and i ended up have seats by washroom, which ruined my trip. The seat that I had 38C made a noise as soon as someone flushed. This was annoying."
Cons: "I booked round trip, on the first leg from Chicago to Delhi, airplane was dirty, seats didnt recline, meals were not provided , bathroom was shut out saying it's defective in Chicago itself, overhead lights wouldn't work. I felt quite humiliated for the price I paid."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the food was good!"
Cons: "Baggage handling! The baggage was damaged beyond repair and still the procedure calls for getting a formal quote for repair! If they are asking for a quote in the US, they might as well have a recommendation on the shop where repair or a formal quote can get done!"
Cons: "Food was very bad"
Pros: "Flights are in time"
Cons: "This is the second time I found something wrong in the food. I called the lady serving in my aisle she was forcing me to eat as nothing is wrong. I requested her to call the manager when the manager came and I showed him the object in the food he apologized and took the object to send to the back office. The object was looking like a rat drop off. I want to add here that I am a certified person in food handling and sanitation from State of Illinois Department of public health."
Cons: "The boarding was started much earlier than the boarding time stated on the boarding pass. I boarded at boarding starting time specified on the boarding pass but the flight was almost boarded and not enough space for overhead."
Pros: "The timing of the flight was good."
Cons: "To Long flight. Service Okay."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Additionally, my friend travelling with me got a business class upgrade for free which the agent did not entertain when I asked. The seat assignment was with a severely obese person and they did not change when I asked, though the flight was pretty empty and people were using 3 seats to sleep and fly all the way back."
Pros: "Needed more frequency of food and juice"
Cons: "There was a technical snag and delayed the flight by 2.30 hrs. Reached late by that much time. It was bad"
Cons: "The fruits served was bad and got spoiled. No proper response from the cabin team"
Cons: "The vegetarian menu was boring. A horrid sandwich, terrible croissants, dry breadrolls, spoiled fruit and brown lettuce. No Cabin crew available except during take off and landing and meal service. They were all hidden in the rear of the plane. No beverages or even water offered except during beverage service. No Wi-Fi, wired remote control in each seat defective. Touch screen not working. Aged upholstery and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Hot breakfast, with hot beverages, very filling and satisfying."
Cons: "Only vegetarian meals, dirty cabin with grubby overhead panel."
Cons: "Late plus equipment is not in good condition."
Cons: "Overall good experience being a non stop straight flight"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for hours that i needed to get on to another flight."
Cons: "Cooperation by cruse members"
Cons: "Seat changed by airline with out my knowledge"
Cons: "Terrible cabin service (low cleanliness; service not easily available; dirty food trays in the aisle not picked up for hours) Noisy cabin (very loud passengers)"
Pros: "less then expected"
Cons: "help and services"
Pros: "They got me home in one piece"
Cons: "Crew allowed all the passengers to board and then announced a technical problem that took 2 hours to fix. Making people sit another two hours (in the middle of the night) before a 16-hour flight is ridiculous. Also as I've previously experienced on Air India, the bathrooms are inadequately supplied and literally held together with tape and stickers, when they are working at all."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Like: (1) Food (2) Service"
Cons: "Things can be improved; (1) Boarding Procedures - you should not board 300 passengers at the same time on a narrow passage to board. (2) Liquor was served 45 minutes before landing on a 15 hour flight from New Delhi to Chicago. (3) Aircraft "BIHAR" air condition was not working back of the plane on my flight from Chicago to New Delhi."
Pros: "There is nothing which was good"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Frequency of Food Supply should be increased"
Cons: "Child luggage weight should be increased"
Cons: "The airplane vibrated strongly upon take off and landing making me question its flight worthiness. The service was unusually bad, the air hostess who served me had a very abrupt manner."
Pros: "Smooth problemless"
Pros: "The staff try to be helpful."
Cons: "Horrible state of planes. My entertainment system didn't work and when I complained to the staff I was told that it was all fixed. This was a total lie. I had no entertainment system or even a working reading light for a 14 and a half hour flight from Delhi to Chicago. Some of the bathrooms were closed because they were "defective". Overall, Air India is going from bad to worse and, unless the guaranteed jobs are taken away, things won't improve."
Cons: "The TV monitors or remote did not work for 3 out of 4 seats, we were able to change seats due to the empty plane so we got lucky."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Please improve your customer service.I had to literally fight with them to cancel my flight."
Cons: "There was just 2 full meals and a sandwich served n 16 hours long flight. Colddrink and peanuts was also served just once...It is the worst I have ever seen...Though the food service in flight AI 126 was good...As compared to AI 127"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "For business class travel seats are pretty old and uncomfortable as to the other airlines"
