It was good, better than most
Food and entertainment needs to be updated. I understand the majority of clients but not everyone can eat spicy food . I wish they have some sandwiches snacks or kids friendly food.
Compared to other used airlines over more than 30 years, it was an excellent experience.
I could not able to travel because of the restrictions from srilanka to india, no notification was given to me about that. Then i changed my ticket to get there.
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Pros: "Very attentive and efficient"
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice and the entertainment choice was great."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal was so-so. Dessert is never good for special meals. Boarding was particularly annoying as there was a document verification line and then the actual check-in. Even if you've done online check-in the document verification people will shout at you and tell you to line up."
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Pros: "The hospitable from the crew, the food was great, but i miss my separate connection flight, eventhough i was on time to board, they boarding desk told me my bag is behind, so they could not let me fly. I bought another ticket for my connection flight."
Cons: "Becouse of flight delays, travelers have to make sure they booked their ticket having enough time to thier connection ."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the service social excellent. The Seat were so cramp, the best sales point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"
Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Pros: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"
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: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"
Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."
Pros: "food, crew ."
Cons: "entertainment choices for Hollywood movies are limited."
Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."

Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Pros: "I like Qatar Airways very much. Ground and air personnel are all professional and courteous. I will fly Qatar every time I can."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "First flight was okay"
Cons: "My return flight then follow on with Qatar airways to Baghdad was cancelled and they didnt tell me that on my first leg i could have stayed longer as i was re directed to a later flight making my total layover 18hrs in Doha i rather have stayed in Philippines that extra 8 hrs"
Pros: "Punctuality, Crew assistance"
Cons: "Refreshments are very basic and dry"
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."

On time, very smooth check in at Istanbul Airport.
I asked for a milk to my baby she told me sorry we don’t have extra for your baby. They tried people definitely i so that if you speak Turkish you get what you need. Last time travel with Turkish Airlines.
When I have checked in in Chicago, they gave me both boarding pass from Chicago to Istanbul and from Istanbul to Kuwait.When I arrived to Istanbul , I have waited in business lounge until next boarding to Kuwait.One hour before taking off , Turkish crew told you can’t get in the airplane because I haven’t CPR test .I told them that no one from your side told me to get this test. Thus, they have cancelled my trip , I was obliged to buy new expensive ticket after doing CPR test in the airport.

Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "I had a very good experience with Turkish Airllines! crew was very friendly and excellent."
Pros: "There was food and beverage service on this short flight"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable."

Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "We were forced to go through numerous security checks. The last check was at the gate and our carry-ons were searched yet again and our laptops, cameras and iPads were taken. Apparently we cannot bring these items on the plane and no one told us, the customers who paid to board this flight. Plus the wifi was not free. And when we tried to use the wifi code we were given from the crew as a "perk" from our camera Ana iPads being taken, that still did not work. So that was a 13 hr flight with no wifi. Plus on my flight from Istanbul to Atlanta my Tv did not work and the crew didn't speak English and could not understand my complaint. Overall the worst flight ever, close to a Delta flight which everyone knows is the bottom of the barrel of airlines. When we finally arrived in Atlanta it took 3 HOURS to get our baggage. We landed at 7:45 PM and did not get our bags until 11 pm. We were not told what the delay was and to just be patient. I will a NEVER take this airline agin."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."
Pros: "Please give food preferences while booking ticket"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and BIG aircraft."
Cons: "The security at the airport is a little too much. Once we landed at Istanbul we went through a security check point which took about 30-40 minutes. I barely made it to my connection flight . Then I went through another security check before boarding the plane. Unnecessary in my opinion"
Pros: "Price and flight time and arrival."
Cons: "Your crew at boarding treat people with no respect. I saw the boarding next door to us. The flights info was not put on board due to computer problem! The whole airport system was down for hours. The flight of Najaf city was next gate to my flight gate and one of the crew lead was disrespectful to the people and he rejected few people from the flight so he can collect money from them!"

Pros: "Food; power outlet."

Pros: "NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING AND NOTHING!!!!!"
Cons: "The company I work for has change our travel policies. We are to avoid any connections to and from Turkey. I was not able to catch this flight.

Pros: "Turkish Airlines were a great surprise - everything was much better than expected. Highly recommend flying with them."

All in all it was a good experience, not the best but I managed, book your seat before hand because you will get a bad seat, i got a middle exit seat and it was bad a huge price to pay to get some leg space lol, didnt have a place to store my stuff and the table sucked and the screen placement sucked i'd give the flight 5/10 because of my seat which i guess is kinda my own fault lol anyway the crew were really good and the food was amazing
Cons: "Let passengers look out the window in the daytime. Going over Norway and Greenland with fantastic scenery and windows are blacked out whole trip. I paid to select a window seat. Totally depressing to be in the dark all day. Windows black even when lunch served. Tasteless Western food. Would have liked something Arab. (I’m a white American)"
Pros: "Crowded people around even the crew speaking loud over several rows."

Cons: "There were so many women wanting to change their seat because they cannot sit next to a man . . . . There was a woman crying because she wanted to sit next to me and the flight attendant told her no and that she needs to go back to her assigned seat. If seats are available after boarding they will move her to another seat is what the flight attendant said. Alot of male passengers volunteered to move to accommodate the women that cannot sit next to a man. As a suggestion maybe while booking a ticket a passenger can select the option of sitting next to women or men only. My screen stopped working about an hour into the 12 hour flight. More options for food would be another suggestion."
Pros: "We arrived to Amman safely"
Cons: "Some of the passengers are men from Saudi Arabia and they cannot be next to a woman. The flight attendant was very accommodating to those passengers."

Cons: "Neither of my bags arrived with the flight. One bag came a day and a half later. The other bag came three days later. A little bit of inconvenience, especially since they wouldn't deliver my bags. I had to go back to the airport twice to pick up my bags that they lost."
Cons: "Worse Flight ever seen . they charge me $210 for my handbag when I'm stop in Jordan Air port for connection to fly to US right before the airplane door . they told me if I don't pay they will cancel my ticket ."

Cons: "The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight."
Pros: "Timing is great"
Cons: "We suppose to have a hotel in transit, but they lied to us and asked us to pay 130 $ for that hotel which supposed to be free! The hotel is SUPER DIRTY and is not even suitable to animals. Beside tha you have to pay for food which is very limited and very bad taste. After we reserve the hotel, we had to wait 3 hours until the big lazy boy to come over and escort is to the hotel shuttle. Over all, was the worst experience for me and I will NEVER EVER try this airlines again."
Cons: "Complex boarding Delay Did not inform us about a stop in canada even we book non stop flight and we surprise in last minuts on boarding that we have to get transit visa or we will not board"
Pros: "Lights were closed so people were able to sleep."

I am diabetic and cannot drink a juice full of sugar, a chocolate cake. There was a screen in front of me, it was locked so I cannot choose anything, the played a "Bloopers" program, I couldn't even turn it off."
Cons: "Terrible ground staff. Constant change in flight schedules. No support on codeshares. No on ground help for canceled flights. No ability to print all the boarding passes. terrible connection options. Will avoid flying them ever again if possible."
Pros: "More food please"
Pros: "I like the selection of movies and the timing of the meals and snacks. A great crew did a nice job bringing around water, etc. They picked out a real nice seat for me on the way back home. Middle aisle and no one else in the row so I could move to the middle when the lady behind me kept on kicking the back of my seat. (-: Compared to other flights the RT price was reasonable and I could go direct from NYC into Amman."
