I used Qatar Airways last oct. and the first thing I told to my travel agency when back to Italy was : Qatar Airways never more !
Indeed, in Doha airport only 1 toilet was open and people were queing for 45 minutes, no chairs or carpets to sit down anywhere. But the airport was under renewing and the company is fastly growing, so I think l will give them one more chance. Have a nice flight !

I travelled on Qatar this year..... Paris to Doha...much better service on board than air canada. Doha airport has improved, still crowded... but hey, that is the east, right?
Just happy to be here.........

a pukka airline

My friend Ramesh is a captain for Qatar Airways so I know a bit about behind the scenes; they seem very, very five-star in everything they do. Go for it.

Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways is a great airline. One of my favourites.
Much better than e.g. Gulf Air or Air India!

But they're very strict with overweight luggage.

Great airline, good service and maybe the only one where I actually liked the food.
But, as others have mentioned, Doha airport is abysmal. There were constructions going on in January, so maybe they have finally managed to create some space and hopefully supply some chairs.

Caveat: I always fly over Christmas, so this is a peak time report.

hi M,
do not worry about Qatar Airways, it is great. Besides, Doha Airport has been renewed and it really confortable (except for the aircon!)you can easily spend some hours there just walking around and shopping,
have a nice trip!

Smile I flew Qatar from Houston to Mumbai via Doha. Excellent

I flew Qatar from Houston to Mumbai via Doha. Excellent

First , from the counter, there was no line. They allowed hand baggage. The seats are bigger than Continental Newark to Mumbai. The service is MUCH MUCH better than the US airlines. DOHA airport is hugh, lots of room. The service in the plane was excellent. And did I mention the seats were bigger. I mean just that little extra seat/leg room makes a lot of difference. They have online selection for different Food plates. I ordered a Fruit Plate and i got the right plate ! (BTW I have not seen fruit plates in Continental).

They still do security checks just like in the US. But they worked fast. Even boarding the plane. In my other flight Continental had the plane so full, it was 45 min late taking off, then there was a 14-15 hr flight. Horrible experience in Continetal.

Anyhow compared to Continental which I paid $1100, I was really happy with the $929 round trip I paid in Qatar. Their customer service was great in India and in US.
