Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Business class is the best"
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Cons: "I truly enjoy this airline! No complaints"
Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."
Pros: "It was an ok experience, improved by the head of attendants at the end"
Cons: "Service was poor at the beginning, but improved to Qatar service as I complained to the supervisor of the attendants Julia"
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "professional and courteous staff. Food is even better than a Lufthasa flights"
Cons: "DOHA to NY. I board the plane to find out that Qatar SWITCHED SEATS ON ME that I selected months ago without any notice at all! Got stuck in middle seat on the wing! I emailed Qatar you know what they said? "Seat assignments can never guarantee." No voucher or anything offered! Fly something else!!"
Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and helpful in getting you settled on the flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit Hectic in Bangkok."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"
Pros: "view above"

Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Everything was great!!! Stewardess were very attentive and helpful. Food was good. Enjoyed the movies on plane. The comfort was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like but maybe that I wasn't in Business Class. Just joking!!!"
Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "The fact that our flight was cancelled without being notified. I will never make flight arrangements with them again!!!!!"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."
Pros: "I don't like at all"
Cons: "Costumer service in Thailand was very bad and pool. Staff is so rude and looks down people."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Customer Service was excellent. Very roomie, and comfortable. Plane was also very neat and clean. They also had all of the latest movies and other entertainment. I will for sure fly with them again."
Pros: "I just flew from Bangkok to Miami, with a connection in Doha. The roundtrip ticket was about the weirdest one listed (less than $1000USD). For the price, it was a really good flight. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable, food was more than decent, and there was a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Earlier in the year I flew a similar flight for a similar price on Emirates. Emirates I liked more for one reason in particular. Emirates had one attendant whose job was solely to clean the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I love the idea of a constantly cleaned bathroom on such a long flight. Qatar didn't have this."
Pros: "Great service, smooth flight...on time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Some of the touch screens weren't working"
Pros: "Food options and timing options , Ambience , seats configuration, type of seats, extensive entertainment options"
Cons: "I was wholly satisfied , service was courteous , requests were carried timely and seamlessly ."
Pros: "very professional crew"
Cons: "food was nothing special"
Pros: "on time, good planes, no problems, good food and service, bags arrived quickly, what else is there to hope for?"
Pros: "Airport is big and comfortable"
Cons: "1. Even though is a new airport, many times they still bus passengers to the terminal. Even a 777 with 300 persons cannot get a gate. 2. Monitors with flight departures are very hard to read. There are not enough monitors so the flights listing alternate, and you have to wait a long time for your flight to appear. 3. Font size in the monitors is too small. 4. The flight departures in the monitors should be sorted out by destination name and not by time. People always know where they are going but not necessarily the exact departure time. 5. Silent screens displaying news in the waiting areas are useless. They should have the captions on at least."
Pros: "The counter workers upgraded my seats to window and a better boarding group."
Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."
Cons: "Everything was awesome."
Cons: "45 minute wait for luggage on conveyor belt"
Pros: "The flight"
Pros: "I felt very pampered!"
Cons: "My seat is horrible with something looks like vomit everywhere between a gap of the seat in front of me. Also the touch screen is not working, at first I pushed so hard until i hurt my finger tip, at the end I used buttons on an remote to control the screen(stupid me!!). The screen reset to an old version couple of times during the flight the crew had to reset for me( the airline should know what i'm talking about) It's a six-hour flight but the meal was literally served at 8.55pm(original time) in my section which is the last section to get food when the flight took of at 6.10pm(original time) - almost three hours into the flight. Can't believe they claimed to be number one airline in the world. If you fly to the States from thailand. Take Quatar if you want to go to the east coast or asian airlines any thing japanese or korean or even chinese airline like Hainan airline. They are all way better than this."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "The flight was excellent, good service and excellent staff"

Cons: "Had to stop movie 20min prior to landing as I was in emergency exit row"
Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants skipped over my row while offering beverages. One person was asleep but i was awake and thirsty. I had to wait until an attendant was unoccupied to get some water"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Flew Emirates coach Washington to Dubai to Johannesburg and Bangkok to Dubai to Washington in July 2017. New A380-800 planes were superb. Entertainment system is second to none. Staff is efficient and polite. Except for the "required crying babies" on each leg the plane is very quiet and peaceful. The check-in, however is a zoo. But better to put your best employees on the flights rather than on the ground."
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."
Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"

Pros: "New roomy plane! Great customer service! Kind, friendly, attentive staff. Great airline!"
Pros: "It was a great experience...nicest airline I've ever flown. The cabin crew was attentive and accommodating and being a vegetarian I found they had many options for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Love the entertainment system and the staff is friendly and incredibly professional. Will travel Emirates whenever I can if I am traveling internationally."
Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."
Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"
Cons: "when the PA announcements came over the loud speaker, when i was listening to a movie, was extremely loud"
Cons: "1.45 hours connection time in Dubai was hardly sufficient. Had to run through main terminal. Despite being in business class, no special service to bring us to the gate. Not good enough frankly."
Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"
Pros: "Excellent all the way."
Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment screens good - good range of music and also internet accessible"

Pros: "Good food,excellent service,good entertainment !!"

Pros: "Plenty of space. Many activities, and free food and drinks"
Cons: "Liked everything."
Cons: "I tried to request a bassinet seat because I was traveling with my wife n son. I call reservation and they told me to do it at the airport no problem. I found this strange but said ok I got the the airport 4 hrs early. When asked for the bassinet seat they said it was already full. Which I accepted until I got on the flight and found not a single child was on board all bassinets seats were filled with adults traveling with no children. Mind you this was the Airbus 380 which has a lot of bassinet a seat and my wife n myself couldn't get on even after showing up 4 hrs early. Very disappointing. And normally airlines allow family to board ahead but this also was not offered to us. Emirates is lacking when it comes to traveling with kids."
Pros: "The aircraft itself is clean, modern and comfortable. You seem to have a bit more elbow room on this plane. Great movie options. You can charge your electronic devices all throughout the flights. You have wifi. Great food. The crew was terrific."
Pros: "Amazing service, great options for in flight entertainment."
Cons: "TV was not working properly. TV show I was watching would often stop abruptly."
Cons: "Misdirected at upper entrance."
Cons: "Lower the price and keeping up the good work!!"
Cons: "Be on time. 3 hours delay"
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, at check-in I was offered an earlier flight that was departing in 40 minutes. Because premium economy was full I was upgraded to business class"
Cons: "not getting any AA miles for economy / economy plus tickets on Cathay. Will make me consider flying alternatives like Thai next time"
Pros: "The crew had their hands full. Very friendly throughout the flight"
Cons: "Comfortable legroom and newer movies"
Cons: "Delays on both flights . Baggage in Dulles took well over 4o mins ... terrible"
Cons: "The sound at my seat didn’t work so I had a a 14 hour flight with no soundtrack. I watched one Japanese movie with subtitles and then gave up"
Pros: "Lots of room, excellent service, decent food. Boarding was uneventful as was the flight itself. We were late taking off, but made up time and landed on time. Only had 1 hour 25 minute layover so was a bit concerned."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific doesn't do a beverage service before serving dinner. I find it odd to get served a cocktail after the first course is served."
Pros: "They were really nice and the plane was pretty new"
Cons: "No bad experience"
Pros: "Hard to make such a long trip comfy in economy"
Cons: "Very attentive crew. I didnt go hungry or thirsty. Real friendly."

Cons: "Old aircraft"
Cons: "Service, food, disorganized staff, technical difficulties with entertainment system"
Pros: "I guess I can't expect much from what seems to be a low budget airline. The food was OK and the movie selection was excellent. I didn't have any issues with boarding or baggage check in. There was a mix of good and bad flight staff. Sadly, the staff in bad moods were servicing me."
Cons: "PThe bad mood in-flight staff and the uncomfortable seats. During boarding, I asked one of the staff if I can have a window seat because I have motion sickness and aisle seats make me feel ill. She looked at me flustered and said all seats are booked and that I'll be Ok with the aisle seat. On a different CP flight, a different staff was helping a couple switch with other passengers so they can sit next to each other. That would have been nice if they did that for me when I asked for a window seat."
Pros: "Really good service, food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Should have WiFi on plane for long flights like mine (16hours +)"
Pros: "Liked the bit more leg room, wish I had that plane on my San Francisco leg"

Pros: "I had two flight crew that went out of their way to exceed my expectations on my BKK to HKG flight. One was the onflight manager, Bingo, and the other was the flight attendant, Carol. They are a testament to Cathay Pacific, and they should be acknowledged for their exceptional customer service!"

Pros: "Stewardesses were cordial"
Cons: "would it be possible to get some Christian-friendly movies? Seats were cramped."
Pros: "The staff on Cathay, as always, was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was extremely outdated - I felt like I stepped into a time capsule and somehow made it back to the late 80's. The seats were hard plastic, 21st century headphones didn't properly work because their inputs required two jacks instead of the now standard one, half of the seat belt had what can only be described as a fun noodle attached around it, and instead of the seat back reclining the actual seat just slid outwards, making you slouch instead of recline. While the staff was lovely, I honestly can't believe airplanes like this are still in commission. All it was missing was an ash tray in the arm rest."
Cons: "Hurried and chaotic boarding. The only downside to an otherwise great experience."
Pros: "On flight entertainment was good. Fairly typical economy flight. It was just fine."
Cons: "People over a certain weight should need to upgrade to larger seats. I sat next to someone well over 300 pounds in an economy seat. It's just not ok."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Above average food offerings. Wide selection of entertainment choices on individual entertainment console."
Cons: "Seat cushions not comfortable. Power outlets dont work consistently (both USB and AC outlets). No individual air vents."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed to depart so I missed connecting flight in Hong Kong."
Pros: "I booked the flight at an excellent price. Service is always good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the cheap price meant my husband and I couldn't sit together for the 15+ hour flight."
Pros: "It was the best that it could be. Our flight was late and we got the airport early, so the flight attendants put us on an earlier flight so we could make our connection!"
Pros: "Food, games attendants were helpful"
Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"
Pros: "The food was disgusting. Quality of food served by Cathay Pacific in Economy Class has gone down in the last 3 years!"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. the quality of the films and TV videos is quite mediocre."
Pros: "The staff is kind and professional. The lavatories are kept clean by the staff during long flights."

Pros: "the aircraft is new and comfortable."
Cons: "the meals are not as good as the past. the meal did not have entree and dessert even the maincourse was not as good as previous flight. i think the CX was curbing the expense on its meals."
Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"
Pros: "Staff were very friendly apart from the check in guy (Saudi) I assume. Food was okish, Seating was average."
Cons: "Plane had an awful smell upon entry. This was on both legs of the journey."
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."
Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Better movies and free internet in flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Food. Screens weren't working properly"
Pros: "They lose my luggage"
Cons: "They loose my luggage"

Pros: "Super on time"

Cons: "Seat was crazy small! Couldn't even cross my legs."
Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."
Cons: "Airport (Guangzhou) very confusing...not fault of airlines; whoever designed the airport in GZ should go back to school Flight delayed 45 minutes"
Pros: "Uniform of the crew is nice."
Cons: "The service specifically the transfer service. They weren’t helpful at all. I’m so turned off how the staff treated me. It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"
Cons: "Before engines shut down and fasten seat belt sign off people were removing bags from the overhead. Passengers were not required/forced to stow bags overhead, blocking egress from window seats."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"

Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."
Cons: "excpt food anything not good and baggage checker give trouble alot"
Pros: "The food & beverage selection"
Cons: "Seats were cramp and in illrepair."
Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."
Pros: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Pros: "This is the way it used to be in travel! Thanks Sri Lanka!"

Entertainment system was not working Plane was packed, spaces very tight"
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"

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."

Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."

Pros: "The crew were good and accommodating, this was the only positive."
Cons: "the Food is the worst ever, i had better experience on an economy class with a budget airliner. on the 4 sectors i had with Etihad, it was breakfast menu no matter what time it was and it was the same choices which had to do with a form of eggs. i opted not to be served. the plane is old, seat is not functioning well, entertainment screen was not touch and had to be operated with the remote which was not working. really it was a huge disappointment. may be Etihad reserve their good stuff for the European and American sectors. I will never fly Etihad business unless I have no choice."
Cons: "the plane from Bangkok to abu dhabi was delayed which miss my flight from abu dhabi to Bahrain waiting over 9 hours to fly into Bahrain basically the flight sucked."
