Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great!"
Pros: "The service as usual on Qatar is excellent"
Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"

Cons: "More variety and quality of food"
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"

Pros: "Everything ,good service ,friendly crew affordable rates"
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Cons: "TOOO long."

Cons: "Zero customer service, absolute waste of money,. I should have read reviews before using your services"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Cons: "Boarding at Bali Airport is chaotic. This can hardly be attributed to Qatar Airways but this needs to be sorted out. When boarding began, it started with "Group 1" rather than business and other priority customers. It ended up rather chaotic with boarding halted at the end of the escalator causing a very uncomfortable situation as people struggled to get off the escalator."
Pros: "Customer service and food."
Pros: "On screen entertainment"
Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food"
Pros: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Cons: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."
Cons: "too hot called groups too fast for boarding"
Pros: "Plane was very empty so it allowed us to spread out."
Cons: "Cabin noise was loud. There was a high pitched whine throughout the whole trip."
Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."
Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"
Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."
Pros: "Crew was professional and food was very good. Entertainment was really good."
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."
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: "Overall satisfied."
Pros: "Overall satisfied.."
Cons: "All the food is halal."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "A bit more leg-room and there is some scope for improvement in the food. Also, the entertainement could have more south Indian content and also allow to access entertainement for more time."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were not bad."
Cons: "The plane was an old aircraft, crew could have behaved more kind, and the plane’s seats need to be replaced they felt like sitting on cardboard."
Cons: "Food we got was not promised. Drinks are not served or highlighted based on requirements"
Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "I'm just not going to go with Etihad in the future."
Pros: "Etihad crew are awesome. The A380 is the best plane in the skies"
Cons: "Free upgrade to business class? Because everything was perfect!"
Cons: "My wife had a drunk passenger sitting next to her and the crew did nothing to stop the man from misbehaving.....what can I say to this inefficiency ??? I choose to not travel with ETIHAD ever again."
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."
Cons: "They upgraded me to business since I am gold member"
Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
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: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Crew tried to make the best of the situation. Food"
Cons: "How do you seat my wife, my 2 year old daughter and me all seperatly from each other and since our first flight from London refuse to change our seats for us. Knowing that we couldn’t choose our seats when checking in initially!!! We were not the only ones separated on this trip and we all had to sweet talk each other so we could swap and sit together. This makes the life of the crew so hard as it is not their fault and clearly many people were affected!! Lastly stop using small planes for your Brisbane flights!!!!!!! We pay good money and deserve better. This is not the first time"
Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"
Cons: "Smaller leg room than other airlines"
Pros: "customer service is great"
Cons: "waited for another plane that was late..but no problem"
Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"
Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Pros: "Crew are great. Food good. Entertainment selection pretty good."
Cons: "I don't know why but on all Etihad flights I've been on so far (4), I found the seats very uncomfortable. There seems to be no padding on them and hence they are uncomfortable especially on long haul flights."
Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."
Pros: "Etihad is always my first choice in aircraft, in-flight service and ground staff. I've flown them all, and Etihad is a best-in-class..."
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment"
Cons: "Food was terrible , the plane is old seats are really small"
Cons: "If anything it would be the terminal 1 lounge at Abu Dhabi airport. It is pretty poor compared to the other lounge."
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..."
Cons: "Service was a bit average. Attendants bumping into you... no apologies"
Pros: "Friendly staff, nice food and had a great time on the flight"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I travelled from KUL to JFK with transit at Abu Dhsbi. Nightmarish transit in Abu Dhabi. Three intrusive security screenings (why three?). At some point they take away your boarding pass and make you sit in a hall for about half an hour (with similar 'criminals') with no access to bathrooms without telling you why. Then they call your name to return the boarding pass ( which was a problem for me because I am hearing challenged). Not sure this special treatment is reserved for just brown skinned travellers"
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "Small seats-space limited."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Reached 20 mins before time Leg space was ample."
Cons: "Flight booked last minute and once payment taken showed a one hour delay. Became a 1.5hr delay and missed the birth of my child because of it. Devastated."
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."
Cons: "No entertainment on a long flight. Not good."
Pros: "Size of plane"
Cons: "Our buggy was broken at landing, fragmented communication at each contact point- embarassing for a company like BA and frustrating for loyal customers like myself"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service"
Cons: "No USB port"
Pros: "I have nothing more to say about British Airways, What I have to say about British Airways is Excellent.In terms of customs services they are number one in the whole world."
Pros: "The flight left on time even though full flight and we had to take a bus to the airplane. Bologna has a separate baggage and ticket check line at the back of the executive lounge. Quick and effective."
Cons: "Everything seemed to go smoothly so no negative comments."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "Head rest broken, actually hanging off on 2 threads so it hung down below my shoulder blades, more like a back massager"
Cons: "No entertainment, tv didn't even show flight details. Hideously uncomfortable seat with broken head rest. Staff ate their meals in front of the paying customers."
Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "The food and drink are not free anymore"
Cons: "Seating configuration was ridiculous as flight attendants constantly leaning across me with trays and their arms nearly hitting my face. Seat & bed functions didn't work. Privacy screen was a joke!"
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Pros: "Everything was ok. Just OK. Decent meal - if small."
Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Pros: "Discreet and attentive customer service"
Cons: "Foot rest did not fully deploy. The remote for IFE was stuck I the cradle"
Cons: "Moved from a reserved window seat to a middle seat so they could add another business class row"
Pros: "Friendly helpful airline staff. Plane slightly late leaving but kept up-to-date."
Pros: "Clear boarding, polite crew and a terrific set of films and TV shows."
Cons: "6ft 2 frame in economy was very tight and aisle seats have little space next to entertainment base stations. Food was acceptable, no more."
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak anymore. So bad."
Cons: "Low quality of the food !!!"
Pros: "staff were good"
Cons: "out of date entertainment food"
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Pros: "Food was very pleasant Choice of entertainment was good"
Cons: "Compared to the JAL flight crew we had on our connecting flight, the staff were disinterested, not particularly polite and gave the overwhelming sense we were somehow inconveniencing them... Seats and leg room not big enough and giant metal box under the seat did not help. Yes, we could have paid extra for more leg room (I am quite tall) but that doesn't seem right (almost akin to discriminating against tall people). Booked the whole flight with BA including a connecting flight with JAL. Couldn't check-in online for the JAL flight and there was no clear information as to whether our baggage would be automatically transferred or whether we would have to collect (as was the case)."
Pros: "Still love their use of decent reclining seats, and the boarding procedure and cabin crew are generally lovely."
Cons: "£6.50 for an alcoholic drink is a joke. The fact that they had also run out of most mixers (including diet coke) as well as the sandwiches on my return flight to LHR from ATH shows how poor their service is. I was also refused ice for my warm coke zero (since they didn't have any to buy I thought I'd ask for some for the one I had bought in the airport). Shocking!"
Cons: "High cost airline, no service. Food and drink have to be paid for now, prices are ridiculous. Crew rude and unattentive. Easy Jet and Norwegian way better and significant cheaper."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Dinner tasty, but it is hard to cut a fillet steak without hitting the next passenger in the elbow"
Cons: "Only one check-in agent running all desks including bag drop - long wait. 19 year-old 747 had narrow seats in premium economy, uncomfortable and too much body contact with adjacent passengers. Outbound to SFO in an Airbus 380 had sparkling wine pre-take off, hot towels twice, this DEN-LHR flight only had juice or water on offer (crew said "don't serve that on this route") no hot towels, crew's objective seemed to be get around cabin in one go and leave Pax to it Breakfast was abysmal, soft-pretzel roll, no juice or water served, just indifferent coffee"
Cons: "Attittude of Ground Staff and difficult to find check in counters at CDG airport"
Pros: "Usual BA - professional service"
Cons: "I cannot believe you have to pay for your drinks now. The only thing which made BA one of the last remaining "experience" airlines has now made it become like a normal train journey. I'd prefer to pay 10 pounds more in my ticket and still have the impression my drinks, soft or not, are offered."
Pros: "Early departure (relatively small plane) and early arrival. Boarding and departures relatively quick given small plane size. Service was good. Overhead bins were spacious. Plane was relatively new and fairly high-tech. Food was good and selection was great. Cabin crew went out of their way to accommodate our requests."
Cons: "The Dreamliner is quite a noisy and warm plane. Also, cabin crew aren't very specific with meals (e.g. chicken or beef rather than chicken with rice or beef with potatoes). Snack between meals chargeable. Some trouble with the on board entertainment system that was resolved early on. Stroller arrived fairly late."
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Pros: "The crew on the aircraft were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "Not BA's fault but Nairobi is probably one of the most uncomfortable airports. We paid to go into the Aspire Lounge but was surprised that BA do not have a lounge. We flew Premium Economy but didn't think we got that much extra for the amount paid. Breakfast was one breakfast bar and that was it."
Cons: "Cabin luggage is too big for regional aircraft. Size limits need to be imposed more strictly."
Pros: "Usual efficient BA. Understated customer care"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. BA has started charging for sandwiches in economy. Have they decided to join the ranks of Ryan air and EasyJet? What next - Charging for food and drinks in economy on long haul and become like American, United and Delta? Where is the brand defferentiator? Someone in BA needs to understand that BA is perceived as a premium brand. Don't devalue it"
Pros: "The crew as ever were excellent"
Cons: "Who ever took the decision to charge for food and drink but still charge BA fares must have been a Trump Supporter!"
Pros: "Check-in Ticket printed by BA staff at the airport had the wrong gate number so I was sat in the wrong part of the terminal until I got suspicious and double checked the screens to find my flight had started boarding elsewhere. Entertainment system had a screen from the mobile phone you owned more than a decade ago. Breakfast was a Kellogg's chew bar. Staff onboard were excellent."
Cons: "Food was not up to BA standard"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Being trapped at Edinburgh airport. The incompetence of BA. The shocking state of their aircraft. Their inability to understand customer service."
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Premium economy seats weren't as good as Singapore airlines ones. The seats had small screens and leg room was a bit restricted"
Pros: "Premium economy seats - even the old ones that were on this flight - are still a better experience than economy but I didn't find the difference in price worth what was delivered."
Cons: "Service was scattered compared to the LHR > JFK leg. No "welcome aboard" drinks, staff seemed very distracted, frantic and a bit disorganised. Food was very disappointing and I'm pretty sure it gave me a sick stomach for 24 hours after."
Pros: "The whole experience was depressing."
Cons: "BA operates T5. It's their hub. They operate to a schedule. Aeroplanes come and go at the same times every day. So why did our flight land, and the ground crew were taken by surprise - "Ooo look - a plane! Full of passengers! And us working at an airport... Who knew?! Do you think the lights are attracting them? Let's all hide and perhaps they'll go away..." We landed from Edinburgh, taxiid in, and parked. No airbridge - don't be silly! And a 20 minute wait to disembark while they rousted a few idle layabouts out of their fetid pits of sloth to stand around and occasionally wave an arm in a desultory fashion in tne general direction of the shopping centre - sorry, "terminal building". Terminal is the right word. From now on I'm joining ABBA - Anyone But British Airways - not least to avoid Terminal Five..."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding via bus and poorly managed. Early arrival benefit negated by long delays in baggage hall"
Cons: "It took ages for the crew to organise everyone to load their hand luggage. It caused an hour delay, which is unacceptable. They need to come up with a system to improve this experience."
Pros: "Good seat in club world. Fast track through immigration and security."
Cons: "Slow service on board and lots of children taking up the club world cabin. Had to pay extra to choose seat and issues with seating took away from the peaceful experience that should be associated with business class."
Cons: "2 Hours delay and not enough information about it."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in London"
Cons: "They didn't check if the belts was buckled up on everyone. Also, we have a 5 months old baby and never got the supporting belt for takeoff and landing, never got a baby floating device placed near us or asked if the pilot should fill in the baby's BA log book... staff also looked unfriendly to babies when we boarded, saying 'oh, this is the 3rd one' and looking at eachother in agony."
