Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."
Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"
Pros: "attentive crews, clean toilets"
Cons: "waited for 2 hours upon immigration clearance, not sure what was the issue. ground handling only updated there was a delay. baggage didn't get loaded onto carousel until 2 hours after landing. horrible"
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."
Cons: "Same advertisements before each movie could play were annoying to me."
Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."

Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Clean, modern planes, on time, good service amd team."

Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."

Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Cons: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"
Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"
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."
Pros: "Excellent overall"
Cons: "LAX boarding was chaotic I think they should announce First people with disabilities Then Business class After that board Economy class from last rows"

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: "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."
Cons: "Snack options were a bit limited for such a long flight"

Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."

Pros: "Crew amazing yes. Seat comfortable."
Cons: "None for now!"
Pros: "safe trip"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, would like to be aware no food"
Pros: "Flight overall was unremarkable. Aircraft was almost twenty years old and looked it."
Cons: "Boarding via a bus was painful and inefficient. BA is selling more flights than it can accommodate at Terminal 5. Because plane was so old, the screens for the entertainment are laughably small and faded. Seats themselves are tired, with wobbly and dirty tray tables, and seatbacks that don't recline properly. Seat power is the outdated Empower standard, which doesn't work without a special adapter which virtually nobody has."
Cons: "Hotel was rubbish"
Pros: "Crew was very supportive"
Cons: "The long stopover at London (11:20 hrs) should have been taken care of in terms of accommodation, SPA Access or meal voucher."

Pros: "Efficient well groomed staff, thoughtful amenities such as baby seat belts & toiletry kit containing toothbrushes. Palatable tasty cuisine."
Pros: "The flight was short and smooth"

Pros: "Wonderful to fly on a small airline that still believes in service - a free cup of coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit - whereas many larger airlines charge for coffee etc."
Pros: "I did not"
Pros: "very helpful"
Cons: "That we did not have to have a 4 hour stop over in Madrid"

Pros: "Crew were nice, good enough selection of entertainment. Quick disembarking"
Cons: "Seat not super comfortable. Had room, but the lack of armrest being able to move fully up, and the fixed position of the sides of the headrest were frustrating.1"
Pros: "The aircraft seemed new or renovated and it was fairly clean."
Cons: "The crew was talking with a passenger at the end of the corridor while laughing very loud. This caused many passengers to wake up from their sleep or just disturb them from their reading. Instead of telling the passenger to keep it down they were all cracking jokes to each other while the whole cabin could hear them."

Cons: "Food was awful"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "Crews service"

Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"
Cons: "Bad customer experience"
Cons: "Told to pay for bag at the airport after confirming in check in online 24 hours before that there was no payment. Had to check 2 bags but made us pay for one, which was odd. Then was told while on the plane we were delayed 2 Hours. Pilot didn’t no tell us estimated flight time. Students on the plane were wild and unruly and staff did nothing. They pushed my mother while plane was taxi in london so they could get off first. Staff did nothing. Payed more to take british airways Rather than easy jet. Complete waste of money."
Pros: "The food was excellent. The service was one of the better ones."
Cons: "The forwyand rear facing business class seating is ok. But the window seats on the 2-3-2 configuration needs so me workout to get in and out. For a large person like me it was cramped and extremely claustrophobic."
Cons: "The seats were not very wide, but I endured."
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "That there was help from the beginning to the end of the flight."
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."
Cons: "The reclining mechanism is not user friendly whereby the chair does not recline smoothly. Unfortunately it falls too quickly and not allow the passenger in the back row to get out of the way. a must thing to improve."

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."
