Comfortable seat, good food and friendly staff
Service should have been better
More variety in the economy class food.
Плюси: "Everything great!"
Плюси: "Very pleasant and comfortable flight."
Мінуси: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Плюси: "As always the crew was so nice...really catered to our needs on the long flight."
Плюси: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Мінуси: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"
Плюси: "crew was nice and helpful"
Мінуси: "food quality needs to be better food quantity needs to be increased slightly food options need to be better entertainment system was ok but content was mediocre."
Плюси: "The crew was amazing!"
Мінуси: "The internet service was not working!"
Плюси: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"
Плюси: "Plenty legroom with Qatar. Food good."
Мінуси: "Everything good as usual"
Плюси: "crew was ok. they RAN OUT OF WATER. THEY RAN OUT OF MILK."
Мінуси: "stock the fridge"
Плюси: "They greeted us in Georgian at the gate during boarding, this was very nice."
Мінуси: "Entertainement could have been better, there was no in flight entertainement at all. The food alos remains to be improved."
Плюси: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Мінуси: "Middle seat"
Плюси: "The food"
Мінуси: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"
Плюси: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Мінуси: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Плюси: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Мінуси: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"
Плюси: "Boarding was great as well as comfort and crew. the flight was ok"
Мінуси: "however there was no internet and bad entertainment. You couldnt really navigate on Oryx One and it was hard to select the autoplay or map. There was no remote unlike the B787 between MAN and DOH. Pre-download things on laptops, tablets, phones or whatever ifyou are not going to sleep on the flight. It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("
Плюси: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
Мінуси: "The food was actually very good, nothing was an extra charge and the flight attendants were wonderful. US airlines should really do a better job!"
Плюси: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Мінуси: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."
Плюси: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Мінуси: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Плюси: "Good quality planes with lots of leg room! Also, pretty and young crew...unlike most domestic airlines."
Плюси: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Мінуси: "We had booked the flight together and they ended up putting us in different rows and couldn’t fix that. We travelled 14 hours apart :("
Плюси: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Мінуси: "Food was a bit dry"
Плюси: "Great service and great meal options!"
Плюси: "Good, drinks, service and entertainment system."
Плюси: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Мінуси: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Плюси: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Мінуси: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."
Плюси: "Very kind & friendly crew. Boarding was smooth & flight was comfortable. Food was good considering it's airline food."
Плюси: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
Плюси: "Very organized, helpful staff, they also provide lots of entertainment and food"
Плюси: "Qatar has an amazing service. The staff is impecable, the food is great, they take care of each detail. Business class is superb. They make the bed, give you a complimentary pitada and moisture lotion. Can't be better than that."
Плюси: "In general the crew was very nice."
Мінуси: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Плюси: "Crew, food."
Мінуси: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Мінуси: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Мінуси: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Мінуси: "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"
Плюси: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Мінуси: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Мінуси: "Boarding this flight consisted of minimal organization on the crews behalf, the Gate's security machines were off, people scattered everywhere with not enough seats to fit everyone. When entering the gate (with security machines turned off keeping in mind everyone has already passed general airport security and is only trying to enter the gate. Staff would direct passengers towards an attempt at creating a boarding queue. Once passing the gate doors and walking towards the queue directed by staff, it seemed to be a normal occurance to have another staff memeber shout at you and redirect you another way. Getting scolded by gate employees and requested to remove all electronics turn them on and being requested to remove most clothing items at the gate while everyone is watching with security machines off while only selecting a few passengers seems to be a regular occurnace in Doha & with Qatar Airways. People standing all around, no queues were initiated by staff, instead staff would push through passengers to get to the front instead of propretly annoucing the boarding through an intercom. No matter how loud staff was screaming their sounds were drowned out by the passengers which turned boarding a full translatlantic flight into a chaotic scene. Once on the flight I noticed the headphones provided were broken, I politely requested a new pair...from 3 different employees...which took over 20 mins to replaced. Qatar Airways prides itself on quality unfortunately as an economy passenger I have yet to experience any of that other than when it comes to good on flight entertainment."
Плюси: "The courtesy and efficiency of the crd, an acceptable level of comfort inf the economy class."
Мінуси: "Food below average, command of the entertainment screen not convenient."
Плюси: "Pleasant crew"
Мінуси: "Crowded flight, late departure."
Плюси: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Плюси: "Great personnels!!"
Мінуси: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Плюси: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Мінуси: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Плюси: "Smooth flight. Perfect service."
Плюси: "Everything except the delay"
Мінуси: "No delays, took bag crew forever to load the plane, they were extremely late....waited over 35minutes"
Плюси: "The crew was friendly. Baggage arrive safely. But the repeated commercial interruptions trying to sell things made me wonder if it was commission based - a nap was not possible from the announcements but you could buy things duty free. I am glad it was a short flight. A new plane."
Мінуси: "There are no queues. A free for all to load and unload the plane. If you are looking for Swiss order, look elsewhere. Nothing is free, not water (1.5 euro) or any other beverages or anything else. We paid double what the flight should cost to not even be offered water. The seats were lightly padded to maximize seats. There was a small amount of leg room but some. No power outlets, wifi or media. The worst aspect is I bought a flight on Baltic Air from Tallinn to Riga and had the price from Riga to Paris on the next tab on kayak. I bought the ticket from Tallin to Riga then flipped to buy Riga to Paris only to learn it was a bait price. The price was actually $200 more. Baltic would not refund the first flight (within minutes) so we were stuck to either walk away from our 2 tickets to Riga or pay the bait and switch rate. We begrudgingly paid 400 (200 each) euro MORE than the initial price shown so we could fly out of Riga back to Paris (to be back in Paris by Jan 7). A non alcoholic beverage, a small snack, and power access would be helpful. Ground crew helping with order would be helpful. I was shoved and run over trying to get onto and off the plane. It is the wild west of flying except the plane is new...oh, and it is 30 euro if you do not check in online ahead. But you will still need to stand in line to check a bag (where they can issue you a boarding pass)."
Плюси: "The crew, plane and airport was great!"
Мінуси: "Part of our luggage was disassembled and not delivered to the final destination."
Мінуси: "The crew might be greeting passengers onboarding."
Плюси: "Big space to front seat"
Мінуси: "offer drinking water"
Плюси: "Good, friendly crew. Plane was quite clean, although not perfect. Smooth flight."
Мінуси: "No food included in the price of my very expensive ticket, and to make it worse, I was not informed. There was no info while booking, no info while buying the ticket, no email after buying, no email from the airline, nothing. I’ve never even heard of a transatlantic flight without a meal included."
Плюси: "The airplane was brand new. The crew was very friendly"
Плюси: "They just wanted more money. Charged us one small carry-on bag over 60 Euro! Ridiculous. Horrible airline, will never fly with airBaltic."
Мінуси: "They should have told us that one person can only bring one bag. we just flew with Ryanair and Easyjet, which allow one carryne and one bag. Again, will never fly with such horrible airBaltic, never!!!"
Мінуси: "Baggage was broken and two items inside also broken. Was overcharged for baggage."
Плюси: "All fine"
Мінуси: "Flight delayed 2 hours"
Плюси: "Simple no frills airline"
Мінуси: "would not check my bag to final destination"
Плюси: "Modern airplane"
Мінуси: "Long delay on first flight leg Staff provided little help with transfers, made us run through airport but then decided to close the next flight anyway without the transfer passengers Next flight offered was 9 hours later, only offer was a 10EUR meal voucher - ridiculous"
Плюси: "most of the crew were polite and helpful"
Мінуси: "super small plane... had to climb a very narrow staircase into the plane... overhead bins couldn't accommodate much of anything... we weren't warned this in advance. one rude steward (Miks) July 21 Flt. BT444, 18:30-19:50... he just stood there watching me struggle up the outside staircase into the plane with my suitcase... scolded me for bringing suitcase on board, argued with me, etc. (I've traveled the world and this suitcase is always brought on board)... he was not service-oriented or helpful. thankfully, other staff did help... but he left a bad taste in my mouth for this airline."
Плюси: "Short flight"
Мінуси: "They charged me 35 dollars to check in and the reason I did not check in was because their other flight was running late and was not sure I will make to that flight. It took forever to get bags in Riga. In the empty flight the way they were seating people was crazy. I'm lifetime gold with American Airlines so I do fair share flying and can tell you it's not a good Airline."
Плюси: "Newer plane."
Мінуси: "The plane we were supposed to be on from Riga to Helisinki had mechanical problems so they switched our plane. We had an hour delay do to that. Then when we got to Helsinki our luggage never made it."
Мінуси: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."
Плюси: "Good service, good connection in Riga! Perfectly on time!"
Плюси: "They waited for transit passengers Were helpful"
Плюси: "New planes"
Мінуси: "I wasn’t asked to prepay luggage & it cost me double. That makes me very annoyed."
Плюси: "Nice crew"
Мінуси: "Please give out water for free"
Плюси: "Flight was short and sweet, no problems to report."
Плюси: "Easy for my friend and I"
Мінуси: "They delayed our flight from Gatwick to Riga with no information given to passengers. Many of us had a connecting flight with Air Baltic from Riga to Helsinki- which we asked if they will wait for us, the crew member said because the flight was also with Air Baltic, they will wait for us. We got there 10 minutes before take off, and the gate has already closed. Furthermore, we got to the Air Baltic counter, we were given 5Euro meal vouchers even though we will be staying at the Riga airport for 9 hours. Also they gave us terrible customer service attitude, which we definitely do not deserve after being delayed, and causing so much trouble on their behalf. Definitely do not recommend flying with Air Baltic again. I've never been this angry with any air line."
Мінуси: "Charging 30 Euros to check in at the airport is lunacy."
Мінуси: "on the website i ordered and payed for a meal, and automatically it went to the last and the shortest leg of the flight. it did not ask which leg i was interested in. so i phoned their customer service to get this fixed, they said they cannot fix it and closed the phone on me. on the website is said that from israel you cannot do advance internet checkin, and when i arrived at the checkin they said that i should have done this advanced check in, and since i didn't i need to go to their ticket office and pay a penalty of 35$ per passenger. there also was no warning on the website of any such penalty. i will never fly with them again if i can help it."
Плюси: "Everything was in time. Baggage I handked in the Riga airport and received it in Larnaca, no problems"
Мінуси: "bag measure frames in Riga airport used for aB are smaller than in most airports, as a results we were asked to check some bags in at the last moment. we have had connecting flight through Riga with two hand bags. lets call them big and small. judge by yourself: flight, aircraft, small, big ->Riga CS3, on board, on board Riga-> DHC 8-400, on board, check in ->Riga DHC 8-400, on board, on board Riga-> CS3, check in, check in as you see, the same bags on the same aircraft were allowed or disallowed by the same company based on weather one flies to Riga or from it. i believe there is absolutely no purpose for doing last second interruptions of such kind"
Мінуси: "An extra fee is charged if you don't check-in online."
Мінуси: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."
Плюси: "We arrived safely. Bilingual staff."
Мінуси: "The seats are worn and creek with every movement. There is very limited leg room even for someone who is short. When the person in front of you leans back it is impossible to reach your hand baggage or do anything but lay back in your seat. The landing was safe but not at all comfortable."
Плюси: "The helpful ground person at check-in."
Мінуси: "This airline company looks a like person who is begging for money. First time in my life I paid for the luggage. 40 Euros!!! what for? Apparently Air Baltic has no clue about how to run a service business. Somebody has to teach them this naked reality: IN SERVICE BUSINESS YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE YOUR MAJOR MARKETING ASSETS! They don't even serve a glass of water, apparently they could not manage to integrate it in the ticket price. But they dare to get thirsty and unhappy customers on the plane. Anyways: This airline company is charging extra for luggage. And I could not see this anywhere when I was buying ticket online. If I knew I'd never buy the ticket from Airbaltic. "Not writing it clearly and visible at the time of ticket purchase" is certainly tricking and misleading us. This is a crime!"
Мінуси: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."
Плюси: "Professional appearance"
Мінуси: "Extra $ for the seat (quite absurd) and 40 Euros for a check in luggage."
Плюси: "Boarding went well and crew was nice."
Мінуси: "The air conditioning was not working properly on the 3 hour flight which made it a bit sweaty and unfortable. The purchase of a cold beer was a must."
Мінуси: "Expensive tickets but no complimentary beverages and snacks for a 2 hour flight, overpriced snacks in the flight cafe. 3H delay!!!! with no understandable explanation in English and no explanation in Latvian from the captain - airBaltic is a Latvian airline! Other airlines use two languages - national and English"
Плюси: "Food was good, flight was on time, boarding quick"
Мінуси: "Aircraft was incredibly dirty."
Плюси: "Brand new aircraft Wider seats as normal Good selection of food"
Мінуси: "We got disembarked from the aircraft for technical reasons, then they towed the same aircraft to the next gate and off we were. Delay almost two hours."
Плюси: "Quick bag drop and security line at Riga airport. Quick boarding with all the larger suitcases forcibly checked in at no charge. On time departure. Seats are comfortable enough for a short flight."
Мінуси: "(This is more of a comment on Kayak's review page than on the flight.) Haven't tried the food and there was no entertainment."
Мінуси: "surprised i had to pay for coffee"
Мінуси: "No fee food or beverages at all. Attendants were very pleasant. Since this is an economy airline there reallly is no complaint. Our flight was full and boarding went smoothly."
Плюси: "It was very easy to print boarding pass."
Мінуси: "The scanners did not accept my boarding pass. 40% of the passengers had to have boarding passes reprinted. It was chaotic."
Плюси: "It's very inexpensive, especially if you fly with only with a carry-on luggage. On-board service has always been excellent."
Мінуси: "The check-in process is horrible, regardless of the airport you are flying from. It's just the trademark of Air Baltic. I learned my lesson and pay extra to use the priority check in line, as well as boarding. Otherwise you end up staying in a VERY long line. This time I was bumped from the seat that I picked when booking my flight, which was still assigned to me when I checked in online. No explanation or heads-up, I was just handed a paper boarding pass when I checked my bag, and only after I was past security line I realized that I was bumped from row 4 to row 10. I was able to get a seat in row 4 again at the gate, but not the same seat. Also, there was no priority boarding, even though I paid for it. Given this experience I will only fly this airline if I can get away with a carry on, thus avoiding the check in desk altogether."
Мінуси: "For people who have Airbaltic as a connecting flight this might be very inconvenient. We paid 40 Eur/person each way for our luggage . That brings the price that you pay so much higher than you expect at first. Also if you don't print boarding pass ahead of time which we didn't (plus still needed to drop off checked luggage and check our passports) they want to charge you 30 Eur a person to print that drinking piece of paper. If you don't want to pay that get out of the line with all of you luggage, go to kiosk and print it, then come back to the line. But that's companies rules , employees just have to follow it. Another problem was their attitude. The guy who got our luggage was so weird. Showing off and talking to us like a boss. After giving us boarding passes he said we can go to the screen and look up the gate ourselves. I never write long reviews but man! they got me mad that day. Never say never - but I don't want to fly with this airline again"
Плюси: "Boarding was efficient."
Мінуси: "No free food or drink of any kind. That would have been okay since prices were reasonable. However, they completely skipped my row on my side of the plane, and I had to use the call button to get service."
Плюси: "Moved up to First class section."
Мінуси: "No refreshments"
Плюси: "Friendly crew, tons of meal options, good price."
Мінуси: "Checked in luggage is only 20kg, there's no entertainment in flight."
Плюси: "New Planes, crew"
Мінуси: "Entertainment cost !!!"
