Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like how the crow did help me with my dizziness and provided me with an extra oxygen to breath better."

Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
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: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."
Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."
Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"

I said iwas not charged extra at miami why you are charging extra here ,they said rules are different at miami but in hyderabad this is the case I am very much frustrated on this service ,atleast once in a year i will travell on qatar from next time i never prefer to travel on this carrier. Thanks a lot for great qatar servic"
Cons: "1-one hour delay in departure. Although pilot tries his best to reduce the delay time but still lost our connection flight. it is known that the whole operation is complex but still believe that effective cooperation by flight crew, ground personnel and others could result in a better outcome. the hotel chosen by the office at airport was not satisfactory. Qatar Airways customers deserve better treatment."
Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Cons: "Did not departure on time"
Cons: "Creaky seats in business class, below average selection of inflight movies and food that was substandard. This was a very oddly configured A330 with the seats in business way too close to each other. Every time they make an announcement you have to deselect whatever you were watching again."

Cons: "Landing could be more softer"
Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was an experience"
Cons: "Nothing not to like. They went above and beyond"
Cons: "Delayed for more than an hour.."
Cons: "Connecting Time"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Good food. Comfortable seats even in coach."
Cons: "Whilst the main meal was ok, as far as breakfast on the LHR to KUL sector was concerned, by the time I was served my preference was no longer available. The crew member who served me made no attempt to see if another colleague had my preference available."
Pros: "We paid for extra luggage for check in but we were allowed to carry them on board due to the short stopover duration of the connecting flight. Thanks for the much needed flexibility!"

Cons: "Food was lousy"
Pros: "Service, free drinks, decent entertainment selection, and the food was actually a little better than edible, the best airline food Ive ever had (I haven't flown many long haul flights)"
Cons: "People don't stop growing at 5'8. There are people taller than that, in fact quite a lot of people are taller than that. So much in this world is made without this consideration in mind. I'm 6'1, I shouldn't have to pay hundreds more just so I have enough legroom. And I don't mean enough to swing my legs about as much as I want, just enough to be comfortable. This isn't essential on short flights, but just seems cruel to taller people on long flights."
Pros: "On time. Good food Good flight attendant service"
Cons: "* Business lounge was pathetic with NO food, only drink and snack. * Boarding was not efficient and took longer that it should have so had a late take off. * Business class.... Ran out of food!?!?! What the heck! only water available for 6 of 16 seats! Pathetic * Terminals not updated so had to take transfer to another terminal to get my arranged ride."

Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"
Cons: "There wasn't a food preference option when booking through kayak."
Cons: "Why did the entertainment get shut off more than 30 minutes before landing?"
Pros: "Over all flight experience ok, lack of boarding information and ran out of menu choice but rest ok."
Cons: "Arrived in one piece but my luggage didn't; flew from Auckland to Singapore via KL with a 2 hr layover; how luggage didn't make connecting flight is beyond me; maybe they just lose things"
Cons: "Food is always the same - soggy noodles and chicken or bland spaghetti and wilted veg with soggy fish. Seats cramped. Wasn't informed of gate change until 30 minutes later. Crew efficient but a little lacking in hospitality department."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."
Cons: "No beer or wine in business class! Did not want a meal, so I got water and a tiny pack of peanuts."
Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "Crew seems friendly."
Cons: "Business class food is not that good. Menu were not provided so when time to take the order, we have to decide quickly."
Pros: "Took off on time, landed early, business class cabin was comfortable and food was ok."
Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."
Cons: "When they served satay they didn't ask which I prefer beef satay or chicken one even they asked it to other passengers. After finishing the dinner they took forever to clear a napkin so I couldn't find dinner was finished or not. It was midnight so I wanted to sleep as soon as dinner was finished. When boarding they do security check. It's OK. But why don't they use business class gate even there was the one?"
Cons: "the online web check-in system was down. Had to queue 2.5hours to be checked in. Due to this, flight was delayed."
Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."
Cons: "No alcohol"
Pros: "The staff is great"
Cons: "We had to wait very long for take off"
Pros: "They left on time"
Cons: "Website is a debacle, asked to preorder meals for business but can't, can't check in on line, business menu was limited, what was on the menu wasn't offered. Seats are uncomfortable, short & narrow. In general for the amount of money paid for business, it's the worst yet"
Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Clean and entertainment good!"
Cons: "Food is mediocre, even for airplane food."
Pros: "Service excellent"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."
Pros: "Much better than Air Asia of course."
Cons: "I dont know about the weather condition but I did feel a rough landing. I do feel the standard of the cabin crew deteriorating. Unlike few years back."
