Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"
Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Cons: "Leg rooml"
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Cons: "There was not enough tome to catch my connecting flight and I had to stay in the airport an additional 6 hours and had to stay the night in the hotel and then get to Portland on another airline 21 hours later than planned."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "Service, crew, food"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."

Pros: "The crew was just fine."
Cons: "Checking on the cleanliness of the toilets frequently"
Cons: "When boarding from JFK the plane was like a Sauna. The ACs were not working till the plane took off. So for an hour we were in a hot Sauna in an A380 supposedly the best airplane that Emirates has. That has never happened in Emirates flight earlier btw"

Cons: "The check in counter welcoming should be better in Barcelona"
Pros: "Leg room is spacious."

Cons: "Qatar airways allowed us to take both separately and we could take up exit row if available without payment"
Pros: "The food was nice."

Cons: "Some of the crew were neglecting, the food was bad and the boarding system was strange, as people in first class and economy were meshed together (Amman - Dubai)"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive and polite at all times!"
Cons: "I wasn’t aware that there is a ticket with only 15kg baggage allowance - thank God I was taken to the airport by a relative and could leave some stuff with them. Of course, I should’ve checked - but I didn’t know there was an option below 23 kg. You’re never done with learning l"

Pros: "Good food friendly staff"
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."

Pros: "Business class setup Bar Staff"
Cons: "Being seated 5 rows and a bulk head away from my wife. Configuration of Two class A380 business class is at the back of the plane with all that increased movement and you have to wait for economy to exit before you can get off. Your diluting the benefits guys for economy profits."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."
Pros: "Good as usual"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"

Cons: "Narrow seats"
Cons: "Better comfort and services"
Pros: "it would be a lie to say i liked anything"
Cons: "everything by alot"

Pros: "Overall good for economy."

Cons: "Food was quite mediocre to be honest."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."
Pros: "I am amazed of how good is the crew and how nice they are. Also, like the seats and the food/drinks compare to American companies. You will never feel hungry on this airline."
Cons: "Gate 61 for boarding is too far away and requires a lot of walking....very strange design of the airport"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "- Very noisy and old airplane - Since it's old, the legroom in economy was poor and the business class was looking like it was built in the 80s. It was really cramped even in the business class - If you bring your own headphones, make sure they're noise cancelling since it's noisy on the plane - And if you bring your own headphones, you need those old 2 pin style connectors as well. The ones that Ethiad give you are super low quality. - Screen resolution on those screens is really bad, you can view every pixel on the screen and brightness doesn't go all the way up either."
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "Shoud be treated good meal in flight."

Cons: "Add chicken biryani, chicken shawarma etc."
Cons: "Tv Options"

Pros: "Flight was empty so had enough room next to my window seat"
Cons: "The food was an express snack! For a 2.5 hour flight, I think it’s seriously a shame!"
Pros: "Clean aircrafts, average leg space and nothing less in services then what you get from other airlines as well."

Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."
Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."
Pros: "I thought 11 thousand dollars for 2 of us to fly was way to dear business class there was not a lot of room. Was my own fault I thought I was going on a380 but I woukd think twice about booking again for that price not worth it."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"
Pros: "Same good entertainment. Flight left and landed on time. Breakfast was enjoyable but they had ran out of options so I didn’t get a choice, but still enjoyed what I got (banana bread)"
Cons: "I don’t recall there being an announcement to say that the flight was boarding, only the screen in the waiting area saying so."
Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."
Cons: "Limited food options and quantity."
Pros: "It was a great flight. I got an exit seat, and the air host, Dylan, was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight delay with no reason for two hours which made me cancel another flight and wait for another five hours in transit and pay a huge amount of money to reschedule flight. Medicore plane on a long flight of seven hours from abu dhabi to kuala lampur. Cabin crew not helping. Bad toilets."
