Qatar Airways Reviews
"Do Not Fly Qatar Airlines If You Value Your Time"
atar Airlines is lousy. IF YOU VALUE YOUR TIME, DO NOT FLY THEM. I am a United Million Mile Frequent Flyer and well versed in good airlines. KLM, United, Air France for the most part, Emirates BUT stay away from these clowns. In September, flew from Bahrain to Paris to meet my Wife. Was told I would be issued my Doha - Paris boarding pass in Doha. No problem. Get to Doha and guess what? Flight is over sold and no seats which explains why I was not given a boarding pass. QATAR AIRLINES LIED TO ME IN BAHRAIN. I was then stuck in the Doha airport at midnight after working all day. Did get to Paris, but only after an act of congress. Qatar gave me a voucher for $150 for my troubles, but you have to go to some offsite ticket office to get your money. They take your money at the airport but can't refund it at the airport. Then on Friday October 17th flew from Bahrain to Kuala Lumpur. Flight was late getting in and I missed my connecting flight. Qatar did put me up in a hotel for the night BUT I was late by one day getting to my consulting assignment. To the idiots at Qatar, time is money and you waste a lot of my time. Today, when I went to check in, Qatar had cancelled my return flight back to Bahrain. Got this fixed and made the flight ONLY TO ARRIVE LATE in Doha and miss my connecting flight to Bahrain. Again to the idiots in Qatar airlines Management, 50 minutes to connect from one international flight to another is not enough time given you land in a billion dollar plus airport but have to ride a bus to the terminal, then clear screening again even though you are in transit. The airport is beautiful in many ways but lacking when it comes to a true travel hub. Qatar airlines must have something to do with this. To add injury to insult, I am now missing a meeting with Aramco that was set for later this evening because of the incompetence (and that is what it is) of Qatar airlines. To compensate me for my lost 3 hours, Qatar airlines gave me a voucher to get a meal. Problem is the voucher was only for 15 Qatari Riyal. A bottle of water cost 12 QR. A hamburger at Burger King cost over 30QR. Qatar airlines is out of touch and a joke. DO NOT FLY THEM.
Update: Previously I had a problem with my flight
changes resulting in connection problems with
long waiting times which I believed
could not be resolved.
As I am old and diabetic and not in good health
I was very upset about this.
But this was brought to the attention of
the excellent senior management.
Of the Airline who offered me a number
of options to resolve my situation
and they fixed my problems.
So I want to bring this to your attention.
And would recommend this Airline after
my experience problems can be resolved.
"Changed my ticket"
Made a Big mistake of paying for my ticket months in advance of the flight I am an old and trusting person I might even add fool to this anyway
Original ticket Outbound:
Manchester to Phnom Penh via Doa with a short transfer time between planes just over one hour for the next flight to Phnom Pen with a short technical stop in Ho Ch Min City on the way
I later found out this short stop is actualy one and a half hours .
Return Phnom Penh to Manchester via Doa second flight leg transfer time just over two hours.
My ticket now is outbound:
Manchester to Phnom Penh via Doa transfer time between planes twenty five hours
they cancelled my connection and now it is the following day.
Return Phnom Penh to Manchester via Doa second flight leg transfer time over eight hours.
I complained to the Airline they do not want to know told me to contact
the agency I booked through they do not want to know also
told me Airline will mail me? still waiting
Booked through travel trolley Southall travel.
Once they have got your money they don't care about you
from my experiencer I would avoid.
"poor customer care"
The airline lost my baggage in Doha transferring between their own planes. When we asked about it in Colombo airport their staff where not sympathetic, I received my bags 24 hours later with no apology from them. When I arrived back in Manchester on 23rd July 2014 I was given the customer care email. I emailed them and have not heard anything back from them.
"All aboard Qatar Airways SPEW-Liner"
I went to bali from London with Qatar and what a disgrace. No leg room at all for starters, shockingly cramped seats. asked for a bottle of water and told i get a maximum of two cups per flight and thats half filled tiny plastic cups. Dirty toilets that are never cleaned during flight. Cold drinks and food that has given me horrendous food poisoning. This truly was a trip from hell. AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COSTS
A budget airline charging REAL airline prices
"Muslem women should not drink alcohol"
My wife and I where traveling to Shiraz Iran.on the way she had some alcoholic drink
Upon our arrival to doha they tricked us to separate and I was piton the plane to Shiraz whilst they
Took her to prison and never let her call solicitor / myself of the embassy.
They told her that a Muslim women should not drink alcohol and stamp her passport with arabic word that reads
" disobey god"
They then dumped her after 3 days in the transit section of doha airport with no money or ticket.
They also canceled her ongoing ticket to Shiraz and banned her from traveling with qatar air.
I was not told of the terrible situation they had put us and later they refuse to release her luggages.
The events are just hard to believe but it looks alike qatar air has done the same to helpless passengers
Specially from Iran.
If you look on Internet you will see same customer abuse that took place in doha airport.
I sent 39 emails to qatar airways but they have not yet responded to all points on concern.
What the have done is criminal / inhuman /unacceptable for a 5 star airliner .
"Worst flight ever"
Ive tried to fly with emirates before and there's not even 1% comparison between these two flights emirates is the best!!! Qatar is the worst ever flight yes it keep passengers fed but they are the worst rude mean staff, they r not organised toilets dirty and they suck money in every chance they can i really regret for travelling with them lthough many told me not to but anyway never everr again
DO NOT FLY on QATAR. Period! I don't understand the logic of calling it a 5-star airline. The food is a typical airline food. Their Airport is the worst. Their transit time is LONG!
"SAVE YOUR SANITY! DONT FLY QATAR AIRWAYS"
For the past 4 years i’ve been traveling qatar airways and prior to that i travelled only emirates... So this comparison is not based one time travel. Most of you might think then why do i need to take qatar airways... Sadly my in-laws live in qatar and so i have to stop there every time i travel and qatar airways is the most convenient since i have to take less number of stops.
So traveling almost twice a year from JFK-COK i have acquired so many miles.. Every time i book a flight and ask for an upgrade from economy to business , its just not available.
So this time around since the dates were flexible I decided to contact the Member service center number +974 4449 6449 in Doha directly. So the person at the center told me August 21st there is availability for an upgrade to business class on Chicago-Cochin. He also said that he can’t book tickets, but asked me to book economy tickets and call back.
I booked my ticket and called in exactly 20-30 minutes. And then the person in the center said that there is no upgrade available! How ridiculous.
I see this as racial discrimination coz i’m Indian. The first person thought I was an american who wants to travel so he gave me the dates.. the second person i spoke to had my details from the privilege card number. So he refused to give me upgrade... I know how qataris discriminate Indians. Since I grew up in middle east I know their attitude... But it is so wrong!
The sad part is if I wasn’t getting an upgrade i didn’t wanna travel qatar airways.. now to cancel my ticket they asked for 250$.
I emailed their complaint team.. They are yet to get back to me!
Let me Also tell you prior to this every time the people in qatar airways counter in JFK gives so much attitude. where requesting a seat or any thing.... Trust me every time i flew in emirates they have been so accommodating in whatever I requested..... I am not exaggerating.. I had problem every single time...
I decided that even if i have to take extra stops with my 9 month old, I will do it.. Qatar airways is just not worth it!
"Comfortable business class, excellent customer service, good food"
Everything you expect from Business Class. Good Lounge in Qatar. Really good customer service -- Example: On 1 leg I left my computer on board and they had a person run to the plane and rescue it and bring it to the Lounge in Qatar before we took off for India. On the going home leg I left my jacket and they did it again. Way beyond the call of duty. I had been working hard both ways and was quite tired, so not at my best. The layovers were quite short so the itinerary was very convenient but it meant that there was not much time for them to get a vehicle to dash over to the planes while they were being cleaned and we were changing flights -- the aircraft are not near the passengers areas while they build. This is excellent customer service! I applaud Qatar for this special service! Food was also delicious and staff was very helpful and courteous during the flights. BRAVO!
