Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."

Pros: "Very clean. Crew was very good. Food was for the most part fine."
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty lacking. No paid WiFi service on the airplane for a modern country’s air fleet... only texting."

Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."
Cons: "Their iphone applications could be smoother and more functional."

Pros: "The flight attendants were so awesome and beautiful! Food and snacks were great and the amount of time we were fed. They came around in a timely manner to get trash and ask what we wanted to drink."
Cons: "More variety of options for the vegan meals..."

Pros: "Cleanliness, spacious legroom"
Cons: "Serve coffee more"

Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"

Pros: "Their friendliness And care for the passengers"
Cons: "i can not think of anything."

Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."

Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."

Cons: "Boarding is done by a bus trip onto the tarmac, then you take the rolling stairs up into the plane. No in flight entertainment of any sort."

Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."

Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"

Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "no outlet to charge phone"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."

Pros: "Very nice, new plane. Clean bathrooms. Good amount of legroom. Polite staff. Easy check-in process. Kid-friendly. God entertainment system."
Cons: "Limited entertainment options for kids."

Pros: "The entertainment touch screen didn't work at first, but mentioned it to a crew, it was rebooted right away and worked fine after all. Thank you."

Pros: "got cancelled"

Pros: "Everything went well. ANA customer service wonderful, both at the counter and on the plane. Loved the meals, and fun to watch the available movies and shows at your seat."

Pros: "Overall comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks like fruit juices were given in too small portions like a quarter cup by stewardess; as if the drinks were being saved or rationed Not much choice for movies. Movies were not well selected"

Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."

Cons: "19 hours overlay in ORD. I had to check out all luggages again. Terrible."

Pros: "Smooth , professional crew and their hospitality and especially their smile and attention to passengers is unparalleled."
Cons: "I'm flight entertainment seemed a little limiting to me- more updated and new releases can enhance I've really experience"

Cons: "The flight left late and it was extremely hot in the cabin. It was a good thing that our connecting flight was a couple of doors down or we would not have made it, we sat on the runway waiting for our turn"

Pros: "Staff was wonderful and pleasant. Food was good for plane food. Entertainment was enough to get us all the way there."
Cons: "Seats in economy are a little uncomfortable, but to be expected."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "ANA crew is very hospitable."

Pros: "Services and respectful"

Pros: "Food was excellent. Very polite and helpful staff. Clean restrooms."
Cons: "Seats barely recline. Impossible to sleep without hurting neck. Good but low number of Indian/Hindi films."

Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"

Pros: "Good food Stewardesses polite Brought lots of water and juice during the flight"
Cons: "Seat felt so narrow. Limited selection of movies."

Pros: "Stewards were very polite"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable on the long flight from San Francisco to Tokyo; poor movie quality and poor choices of movies"

Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Seats need more padding -- perhaps an optional pad for some customers. It may be impossible to avoid literal butt hurt on a 14-hour flight, but an additional seat pad probably would have helped. Little Japanese woman next to me had one and I think she was quite comfortable."

Cons: "No individual air conditioning. Centralized AC got hot. Old plane 777 Once I got to lax, there were no guide on getting to domestic connecting flight (united). After getting pampered with awesome ANA service, you get slapped with horrible united customer service."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."

Pros: "Excellent plane, accessories. Friendly staff as you expect from ANA. Very comfortable trip."

Pros: "The work ethic and sweetness of the stewardess , aways happy and work together well. Very detail in saftey and checked everything. Very good in caring for all in flight"
Cons: "Great food. Really good , gave menu to choose from. , other airlines will say chicken or beef and you pic ..... Great price on my ticket. Most my flights are 1200. Got my ticket for 862. I very happy"

Pros: "the food, service, and efficiency"
Cons: "The really long layovers"

Pros: "Whenever given the choice, I choose United flights operated by ANA over thiose operated by United because the ANA planes are generally newer, cleaner, have far superior on board entertainment (important for 12 hour flights) food is better and crew is more responsive/ solicitous."

Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Choices of food."

Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary. Every crew member goes above and beyond one's expectations. My wife and my kid had a lovely time and comfortable journey. Will definitely try to book this flight again in future."
Cons: "There was no Indian or vegetarian food. Luckily, my wife carried home-made food."

Pros: "A N A Very good, space between chairs is very good, crew very professional and friendly"

Pros: "As expected from the Japanese, super polite snd patient."
Cons: "If I was going to pick on something, it would be the English announcements which were somewhat difficult to understand."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."

Pros: "I never find any problem with their detailed and kind treatment and service.Attendants are always smiling, efficient and pleasant."

Pros: "I liked my seat. It was in the first row behind first class. The ticket lady was very nice and patient"
Cons: "I was very frustrated because I thought I had 90 minutes between flights but by the time I got my luggage it was too late to get my scheduled plane. This forced me to wait two hours for the next plane after I had been on a plane for 13 hours."

Pros: "I liked that they feed us good food, and we were feed several times. We were also offered several drinks, and all the flight attendants were extremely nice. We would fly Ana airways all the time if given the chance. Seats were very comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "I liked everything, everything was excellent"

Pros: "WAS OK BUT NEED BETTER PILLOWS"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight was on time. Meals were good. Will be flying with EVA again"

Pros: "Very professional."

Cons: "Better movie selection"

Pros: "Crew was great and were timely in boarding and deplaning processes. They were willing to help when asked."
Cons: "As a 6’ tall, broad shoulder individual the seats were narrow and there was not much leg room. Fortunately there was an empty seat directly next to me which afforded me some space."

Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food is the worst out of many other airlines"

Pros: "Both the ground and aircrew were very helpful. I had a short transfer to another flight and was immediately greeted by a crew member that pointed me in the right direction. It was so relieving! There was also good entertainment and decent food on this flight."
Cons: "I just wish there were vegetarian food options."

Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."

Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and the food ran out. The entertainment did not work. Plus we were over an hour late once we finally got off the plane"

Pros: "Crew very fast in serving dinner"
Cons: "Flight late"

Cons: "More legroom, but what do I expect in economy?"

Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."

Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."

Pros: "crew was amazing and plane was comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice"
Cons: "More space for economy"

Pros: "On time boarding and no delays Crew and staff are very professional and exceeds customer's service"
Cons: "Food need some improvement"

Pros: "We enjoyed the clean and quiet plane. The crew was wonderful and the bit of extra leg room made a difference. Traveling with 4 kids is a juggling act but this way was a breeze"

Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit too cramped."

Pros: "機艙舒適,機組人員態度良好,熱心親切,服務快速,空服員讓人看起來友善美麗,飛機乾淨衛生,讓人放心搭乘。"
Cons: "機上購物的電視螢幕上,想訂購的物品都沒有,很可惜。"

Cons: "People abuse the wheelchair policies although they are physically fine."

Pros: "Taiwanese food Boarding orderly"

Pros: "People were lovely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were pretty ordinary"

Pros: "Departure and arrival time"
Cons: "Meal"

Pros: "Hello Kitty theme plane"
Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "Feeling much better than others"

Pros: "Great friendly and efficient service! Very lovely hostesses"

Pros: "Food not bad"
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "very clean and tidy washroom. smiles on attendant's face."
Cons: "30 minutes delayed in boarding, 35 minutes late in arrival."

Cons: "Tasteless food, mediocre movie selection"

Pros: "It was my first time flying with EVA. I have nothing bad to say. I will fly with them again and again."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "We were fed plenty of times, snacks and drinks always available, the crew was very kind and accommodating. They even had a vegetarian entree available for me!"

Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean overall but an older plane."
Cons: "Had an older plane. Seats were smaller than previous flight (narrower, less leg room) Entertainment screens were tiny."

Pros: "Very hardworking and friendly cabin crew and very efficient service onboard. Lots of little finishing touches like free toothbrush/paste, eyecovers, earplugs in washrooms. Larger and better quality LCD screens in their B777-300ER plane."
Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."

Pros: "I came 32 mins before the flight because I went home to get my passport. They said they close the door like 20-30 mins which mean they were able to board everybody in just -2 to 8 minutes only. Amazing. No other flight available for one week because it’s christmas season. I’m not going to the detail of not having my passport (I never left my passport before). They are cheaper from competitors for a reason. No heart here at all. Accident is not acceptable."
Cons: "What to like? No comment yet, first time “to try”"

Pros: "Nothing to like about."

Pros: "Everyone was super super welcoming and accommodating. My favorite part was them not waking me up for a meal, instead they left me a sticker to call whenever I’m ready to eat."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This airplane had so much leg room.... :-) made it more comfortable."

Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."

Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."

Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."

Cons: "One was too warm"

Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"

Pros: "I am very pleased with EVA' service after all."
Cons: "All good!"

Cons: "Extremely packed for a 14+ hour-long flight, my seat and it's surrounding smelled. No slippers in the seat pocked. Entre has been improved, but the honeydew tasted old. Flight attendants didn't offer drinks to the window passengers generally during the non- meal hours. The flight was so long , there hasn't been much comfort improved for the seats and overall in the past 15 years."

Cons: "Space beneath seat in front, where you put a backpack and such, was very, very small - smaller than other airlines"

Pros: "Excellent Service and Meals; enjoyed my trip on EVA Airlines"

Cons: "The 2.5 hour flight was delayed by 2.5 hours due to F.O.D. on the tarmac. Plane had to be towered back to the terminal for refueling. Ground crew in Manila was not helpful in assisting passengers with connecting flights."

Pros: "They make 15+ hours of flying feel incredibly comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Great customer service, amenities and comfortable flight."

Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"

Pros: "My first experience in business class"

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"

Pros: "The service was fantastic"
Cons: "The plane was very cold inside they need keep the cabin warner"

Cons: "Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good."

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too. We had premium economy seats - felt like business class other than reclining level of the seats. Pretty good value!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Best inflight experience on economy!"

Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"

Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."

Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"

Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Check In Issues related to code share flight"

Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."

Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"

Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."

Pros: "So many complimentary items such as food, drinks, and even alcohol. The most professional crew I've ever seen."

Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."

Pros: "I like SkyCouch."

Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"

Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."

Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."

Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."

Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"

Pros: "Awesome crew! Tasty food! Comfy seats!"

Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."

Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"

Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."

Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."

Pros: "Very professional; enjoyed entertainment options"

Pros: "I was able to watch the entire Game of Thrones Season Six on the flight to Vancouver, and catch up with The Walking Dead on the return flight."
Cons: "The menu was poorly planned with very little fresh raw salad . The beef choice had potato salad and potato in the hot meal."

Cons: "People allowed to bring on too much carry on that will not fit so we all wait in the aisle behind them . Dumb."

Pros: "Large variety of entertainment options"
Cons: "Not enough water served frequently enough in my opinion. Hard to keep hydrated (it's a very long flight)"

Pros: "Crew was nice and clean plane."
Cons: "Wasn't aware that on this international flight we needed to do something more to get the basic services. Evidently there are classes of fares that don't rate basic food and drinks. Felt like steerage class. After they rebooted their system we were able to finally order and pay for food and drinks. Never been treated this poorly on an Air New Zealand flight."

Pros: "the entertainment options."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the seat and surrounding area around the seat. Limited snacks. Inconsistent boarding."

Pros: "I love your hostesses"

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: "Nothing"

Cons: "Awesome experience on Qatar Airways... will definitely fly with them again!!!"

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Pros: "Crew was superbly amazing which made flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Heating food with plastic containers is unhealthy and might cause cancer to people. It’s scientifically proven fact that plastic and heated food is carcinogenic. So please find other solution for it. Thanks"

Pros: "Crew was fine, polite and helpful. Seat was not so comfortable as i am tall (no leg room)"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive especially effective helping a mother with a spoilt screaming child!"
Cons: "The food was very mediocre!"

Pros: "Everything!!!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"

Cons: "Internet bad"

Cons: "My seats from Doha to Mumbai were very uncomfortable....37EFG. The 37D was a pain stepping out and in."

Pros: "Flight services"
Cons: "We were supposed to fly on 04/04/18 but our Flight was cancelled due to technical problem"

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Best host staff"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and helpful, wheel chair provided at Doha airport by helpful and friendly staff, comfortable seating in business class. Overall I would give my flight an A rating."
Cons: "I do not have any complaints, except one bathroom I used was not as clean as I would have preferred."

Pros: "Staff worked fast to feed and water everyone."

Pros: "Food was far superior to any other airline food. As was customer service. Airline payed for a nice hotel during lng layover."
Cons: "Clearing immigration in Qatar took about two hours. They had so many staff overal at the airport, but were super understaffed at immigration."

Pros: "Excellent friendly service"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"

Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints rated 10"
Cons: "I really enjoyed myself the flight and all I would recommend my friends to fly anytime rated 10"

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Everythingv"

Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."

Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."

Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."

Pros: "Good leg space and entertainment options"
Cons: "I was eligible for a complimentary hotel for my connection. However, in none of my correspondence was mentioned that I'm supposed to request a hotel ahead of departure. No emails from Kayak and neither Emirates. This is extremely disappointing and unnecessarily costly"

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."

Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."

Cons: "They didn’t have enough landing cards in English, the aircraft temperature inside was too cold, the staff didn’t close the curtains to the galley area and made noise and light while everyone is trying to sleep, our baggage came out last despite having priority tags and the boarding process from the lounge in Dubai with lifts was very combersome"

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."

Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
