Seats are so tight these days.
They didn’t announce priority boarding at all. Needed to walk up and check at gate
There was a 7 hours delay and the airline did not arrange any accommodation for an overnight stay at the airport.
The crew is horrible. Especially at the ticketing and checking counter. Very irresponsible, lazy and no emphathy.
Pros: "Staff were accommodating and considerate, great flight!"
Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"
Cons: "Plane was too warm and movie selection was the same for all flights. Too many marvel kid movies."
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."
Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"
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."
Cons: "Delays twice which cost me lots of stress and taxi $"
Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive and very helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"

Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "Legroom was great Staff were great Bathrooms were very clean and cleaned often in the flight"
Pros: "Faultless as per usual QA flights"
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: "Cabin crew service is excellent. Food is very nice. Safe travel."
Cons: "Little bit congested."
Pros: "The visit to the lounge is always refreshing. The service at the shower area is great however policing of people using phones in the quiet zone should be enforced"
Cons: "The good got used a bus gate which is acceptable however this typically takes additional time if there is a connection flight"
Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"
Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."
Pros: "In-flight treatment"
Cons: "The seat"
Pros: "Heavenly for an airplane ride!"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Cons: "Out of Vegetarian food. As per them it was because ticket was booked less than 24 hrs"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Pros: "Good attentiveness from crew, food was fine. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Boeing 787 was uncomfortable on the trip to Doha - hard seat cushions and little legroom. 777 much more comfortable on the leg to USA."
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Pros: "Great service. Easy. Comfortable."
Cons: "Only 2.5 meals in 16 hours!"
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Food breaks should be more"
Pros: "Flew from Frankfurt to Doha in Business 1A. Being a gold member and buz class received extra attention and the flight supervisor did a commendable job."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "Everything was great except Food and service comfort of the plane Cleanliness was superior"
Cons: "One crew member was a pain if you wanted ice you got 3 cubes ask for more he would ignore you. He was rud and nasty. I mentioned to other crew members they say just his way. If that is his way maybe he need find new job."
Cons: "No upgrades. Worst flight."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
Pros: "Flight attendants are helpful from Doha to New York."
Cons: "Take the bus from the plane to the terminal in Doha. It was a hassle .from Doha to Dhaka was 3hours delayed without a notice."
Pros: "Business class is top notch in Qatar airways. From the moment you get in the Business Cabin, you start feeling the great service onboard. The crew is great, the seats are very comfortable, and the food is very tasty along with the wine pairing. Overall, the experience was well worth it!"
Cons: "The problem was the boarding in Miami International airport, it was quite disorganized even for business class, but more so for economical class."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."
Cons: "Smells from others"
Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Cons: "Accommodation @ Dubai extra bonus Superb"
Cons: "Style and comfort"
Pros: "Good check-in experience."
Cons: "Entertainment Systems are old, low-resolution and difficult to view & operate compared to, say, A380 aircraft. Some did not work. Seats were cramped. One recliner was broken. Cabin crew smiled less. African legs should not have lower quality of equipment and service than other legs."
Pros: "Overall good experience, could have been better if we had got seats of our choice."
Cons: "If we could have got seats of our choice."
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"

Pros: "Great crew, excellent legroom"
Pros: "Good flight and crew but......."
Cons: ".........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc"

Cons: "My meal option wasn't available."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Pros: "I was fully satisfied"
Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"
Cons: "I watched only one movie, but the selection seemed good."
Pros: "My complete stars goes to the crew members. The best in the airline service. Next is the food, amazingly good."

Pros: "On time Excellent environment"
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and the flight crew are good."
Cons: "The emirates crew at Hyderabad airport. The crew doesn't have the knowledge about their work and really got pissed by them."
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
Great service and adequate food on inter continental flight, but inter-Europe flights they charge for EVERYTHING including water!!
Pros: "It was wonderful"
Cons: "Best booking app ever"
Pros: "The crew reacted good to the change of plane"
Cons: "Needed to replace plane because of technical problem, that should have detected earlier. The business seats are standard seats. No water through the flights. Very bad experience"
Cons: "Not being able to choose my seat on a 500€ return flight is a joke."
Pros: "Everything was good except the long layover"
Cons: "Shorter layover"

Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "That your airline commit to schedules."
Pros: "Seat reclined far back"
Cons: "Entertainment limited, esp. when you consider passengers may have two or more legs on Brussels Airlines flights Boarding chaotic Some of the crew were rude/ dismissive of African or African-presenting passengers No blankets were passed out, despite the cold temperature on the plane. My bag was lost"

Cons: "Almost no advantages for business ticket traveller"
Pros: "The crew was OK, the seats had generous leg space."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "economy seats...Space!"
Cons: "Whole flight was so cold like in refrigerator."
Cons: "vegetarian dish was very poor. main dish was ok but quite small, the light dish (breakfast?) was just a piece of bread, might as well not serve anything. Entertainment was very poor, limited selection of movies and very silly tv shows."
Cons: "Wasn’t given a blanket"
Cons: "Flight delays is a constant problem with this company"
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Cons: "Nothing is for free not even a coffee."
Pros: "Pleasant staff. Comfortable plane. Second leg from Brussels to Frankfurt was great."
Cons: "Check in at Manchester was a joke. No signage for Brussels Airlines to start with and no one to help. Long queue, over 1½ hours to drop a bag after checking in on line. Every other airline was way faster. Thankfully, security was relatively quick."
Cons: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We got warm washcloths to refresh our hands and face. A full bottle of water to save as we needed, followed immediately by a beverage service and pretzels. Dinner of either fish or chicken was delicious, and included bread, cheese, salad, and dessert. Followed by additional beverage services, a mushroom calzone and finally Belgium chocolates. The crew was friendly and entertainment on personal monitors was very good. This was the best overseas flight I have had in several years."
Cons: "Aisles were very narrow to access bathrooms."
Pros: "Excellent crew, ALL OF THEM! smiling and super helpful and they seemed to enjoy their job. Super clean restrooms (again, I was the first one in there - by chance)."
Cons: "I travelled economy. Somehow it felt quite crammed. I felt that there were too many announcements, in all 3 languages, it got frustrating, as it stops all onboard entertainment. Duty Free selection rather frugal."
Cons: "the fact I bought a new ticket"
Pros: "I missed it"
Cons: "I missed it"
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "I was misinformed about the meal service in advance. But besides that I was satisfied with the flight."

Cons: "Plane seem a bit old lights would flicker randomly."
Pros: "The flight attendants on the trip from Brussels to NY were more friendlier than the flight attendants on the NY to Brussels leg of the trip."

Pros: "in time food good good sleep multiple languages spoken by the announcer"
Cons: "the movies - music background to loud couldnt here what they were saying and most of the movies no subtitles"
Pros: "Excellent service and a safe flight."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. The day I was suppose to travel ,they told me at the airport that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "Quick flight, on time."
Cons: "Boarding at Brussels airport had to go through a gate, a bus, then out across the airport to the tarmac. Not really a problem, but should be aware if travelling this way. Warning to travellers using this short flight: food/drink only available with payment."
Pros: "They had a funny safety video"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. Not only did this mean that I didn't have a chance to rest in Hamburg, it also meant that I had to sprint to get my connecting flight which was on the other side of a huge U shaped airport."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and still haven't received it. Very disappointed in the service."
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to announce that we would have a delay at take off and at landing. The food?... nothing good to say. It's been years since I've eaten a meal on a passenger plane."
Cons: "The on flight entertainment and the very few meals. (In the second flight, there was not even offered coffee!)"
Cons: "I never flew to Florence because the airline missed my connection and the next flight to Florence was not until nearly twelve hours later, so now I'm on my way to Rome instead. This ruined my rental car and lodging reservations, and I'm now fighting both those agencies because of this botched flight and poor service. Additionally, the plane was ungodly hot. So much so that the crew apologized for our over the PA. Nothing was done to fix it, but it was blamed on the plane only being on auxiliary power while we were parked on the tarmac for the hours. That would've been understandable, but it didn't get better when the jet engines were on, so that excuse turned out to be just so many lies."
Pros: "The seats were great, we were seated in an exit row, so loads of legroom, we are tall so this is very important. Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No fault of the airlines, but I was seated next to a very large family with little kids and a baby. I'm usually pretty tolerant, but the back of my seat was kicked for 8 hours and the kids kept running right in front of me causing me to constantly move my legs. Ugh. Food was ok, nothing special, it edible."
Pros: "Leg room and food on board was pretty good. The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The competence and effectiveness of the boarding crew was deplorable. Everyone looked and acted like it was their first day on the job. If I have a choice, I don't think I will ever fly this airline again. Brussels airport is also a confusing mess. You just wait in line after line with no clear direction. They left one of my bags behind in Brussels as well, and I have yet to receive an update on where it is."
Pros: "The chocolate was delicious!"
Cons: "The food was not that good but edible."
Pros: "The confort"
Cons: "The delay and the food. There was sand in the fish"
Pros: "Crew was vey professional. Arrival in Rome was to a gate rather than a bus, which was unusual but nice. Baggage delivery was also surprisingly quick for Rome. The Brussels Airlines lounge in Brussels airport is fantastic!"
Cons: "The flight departure was delayed 1 1/2 hours, meaning we arrived in Rome at nearly midnight. No complimentary drinks on board. As a Star Alliance Gold member, I chose Brussels Airlines out of loyalty. But the cheap approach to customer care means I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Pros: "Nice plane, great entertainment unit. USB charging is nice. Food service was surprisingly good and the staff was very pleasant and helpful on the flight."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight is a disaster. For some reason brussel's air didn't validate our passports at the first international flight. Everyone was expected to do it at the Brussels airport. This would be fine if they had a sign up explaining what to do, or even a basic queue set up. There were passengers for 3 flights mobbed around the check point in front of our gate with nothing resembling a line. Everyone was completely confused and crawling over each other. Add that to our delayed landing that put us on the tarmac, forcing us back through security and a huge walk away from the gate... We very nearly missed our flight! Please please please figure out a way to communicate to your passengers and get people into a proper queue!!!"
Pros: "We don't know. Ask our suitcases. They arrived in Venice and we were in Athens."
