Boarding and In flight customer service
Pros: "The staff was very friendly was nice trip"
Cons: "The food was not great"

Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Pros: "Liked comfort and srvice"
Cons: "Doha to Lahore flight plane was a bit older than Edinburgh was new and exciting"
Pros: "Qatar is impressive. The airbus was incredible."
Cons: "It would be noce for flight attendants to give coughing passengers a mask. 12 hours on a flight next to two sick people."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment for a 4 hr flight was terrible"
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Poor choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."
Pros: "Flight services"
Cons: "We were supposed to fly on 04/04/18 but our Flight was cancelled due to technical problem"
Pros: "Flight duration was short"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"
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."
Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
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: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "It was really good, crew helped a lot me n my baby, it was not difficult to travel alone with my baby"
Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."

Pros: "Great service. Great food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Space is somewhat small for a short flight and totally unbearable if you go Sao Paulo-Doha."

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
Pros: "I was expecting to get a room myself near airport but Qatar Airlines provided room with meals at no extra cost"
Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"
Pros: "Over all it was a good experience"
Cons: "IEvery thing was fine."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "a wonderful experience to travel with Qatar airways, recommended for others as well."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Poor management didn't provide a hotel for layovers more than 12 hrs"

Cons: "Food was average. Poor movie selection"
Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"
Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Pros: "We missed the connection because the Istanbul airport is a silent airport and no announcement were made for boarding."
Cons: "Announcement from crew or reach out to people in front of gate would help. Also, the staff at Istanbu airport is so rude and have no respect for customers."
Cons: "We were not allowed to board our connecting flight and are stranded currently at the Istanbul airport and had to book our next flight with indigo as the staff closed the boarding ahead of time even though we were on time. Lot of shouting and crying by other passengers happening for the same reason."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Pros: "The food was better than on the flight from LA. But wine was bad to say the least. Rest same as in the Flight from LA."
Cons: "The same as above and misguided by crew with regards to connecting flight. We had a bad time catching this connection. Even after disembarking the crew outside sent us on a wild goose chase. Airline representatives should be informed and helpful, which was not the case. Insufficient helping of food. Poor quality of wine and Vodka."
Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Cons: "boarding was messy at IST"
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Cons: "Delhi International Airport: Unhelpful representatives at both: Baggage Claim and at Operations center."

Pros: "Turkish airlines have always been perfect for me. This was yet another fulfilling experience with the services, the food and other stuff being extremely satisfying."
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Pros: "Very comfortable. The best flight i ever had."
Cons: "There was a problem with conecting the headphones. The chicken dish wasnt good."

Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were great. The crew was good but..."
Cons: "...I could not feel the air conditioning at all where I was sitting in the back of the plane. I was literally sweating the entire flight. When I asked the flight attendants about it they muttered that they would take care of it and then never did. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."

Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."

Pros: "The food, the wine"
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Good range of in flight snacks and food"

Pros: "Smooth journey once we took off."
Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Flew from Gatwick - good airport"
Cons: "Too many children on board"
Pros: "Service was really good"

Cons: "Late departure but caught up the time on route. Very busy flight with only middle seats available 1.5 hours after check-in opened."
Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"

Cons: "Nothing could have been better."
Pros: "Check in too long for drop off bag otherwise quick boarding, flight early and bagage delivered very quickly"
Pros: "Lots of updates from pilot"
Pros: "All pretty good."
Cons: "I received an email before the flight telling me as the flight would be operated by another carrier there would be free refreshments - but it wasn't and there weren't. Rather odd."
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. On time departure"
Cons: "Could not check in online or via app due to system issues"
Cons: "Not impressed at lack of free food on ba flights"
Pros: "Cleared Gatwick security fine. Boarding was fine. Departed gate on-time."
Cons: "Got 200 yards from the gate only to park in another stand, the plane shut down and waited an hour for engineers to come fix a ‘communication computer’ error (basically they had to reboot the plane)."
Pros: "Full flight, but still excellent courteous service from all members of staff."
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight was before time on arrival"
Pros: "Minor fault identified and notified to passengers prior to take-off, and dealt with immediately. Crew excellent"
Cons: "Cramped seating, the feel of a budget airline now in economy, with seat choice, refreshments and stowed baggage all ‘extra’"
Pros: "Went smoothly and on tome."
Pros: "On time, polite crew."
Pros: "Flight was great, processed quickly both sides. Cabin crew were lovely."
Pros: "Flight good."
Cons: "Your website didn’t tell us bags not included. Cost me an extra£200 at airport. More than poor. Who do I complain to?"
Pros: "On time, smooth and comfortable flight. Crew very helpful"
Cons: "There wasn’t much not to like about this flight. All very good. But so short no entertainment really possible"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional, boarding was orderly which was a welcome relief in this day and age. The only saving grace for this flight was the entire crew."
Cons: "Everything except the crew. The airplane interior was ancient and would be better served with Allegiant aircraft and not something that should be on a so called premium route by a once premium company. I would honestly recommend anyone fly Thomas Cook or TUI or even Norwegian before flying British Airways 777s as they are ancient wrecks with no value proposition. I would recommend going by boat before flying British Airways 772. The only time I would recommend flying any of the 772s from British Airways was if walking was your only other choice and even then a nice pair of trainers would probably be more comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was okay and staff where friendly"
Cons: "Delay on take off even though we was early loaded, rusty wings on the plane made you wonder if it would make it!"
Pros: "On time quick boarding and away"
Pros: "Cabin crew was amazing..... didnt mind the delay things happen"
Pros: "Pilot friendly chat at gate"
Cons: "2 hours to offer food through the plane Slow inefficient payment process Bacon roll served with cold Centre - inadequately cooked after 2 attempts"
Pros: "This flight was what you should expect - smooth boarding, helpful and friendly crew, good food and drinks service etc."
Cons: "The wash bag is now so limited- the bare minimum (and that's in business class!). No comb even. No face wipe either. It's an obvious thing to economise on from the airline's point of view, but it doesn't really have to cost them anything. And the choice of new films was somewhat disappointing - they are relying quite a lot on older films. and no duty free at all (the crew were apparently not given the correct paperwork to allow sales). This was disappointing as I had been hoping to pick up a dual SIM gadget. None of these minus points are major, but they detracted from my enjoyment of the flight"
Cons: "A two hour flight and they ran out of time to serve drinks. Maybe if BA reversed their ridiculous decision to charge for drinks, it wouldn't take them so long."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "Crew treated you well, boarding was organised and as a silver club card holder I was rewarded with priority boarding (less queues, less hassle)."
Cons: "Old style entertainment console, small screens, no usb or plug point for charging."
