Where to begin… let’s start with a horrible check in line for Qatar Airways of 45 mins at DPS, then being informed for the first time that there is a 7 KG weight limit (14 pounds) for all carry on luggage… for an international airline that is ludicrous. American Airlines, United, delta, and other international airlines do not have this absurd limit. For a $1,400 ticket from Bali to PHL this is truly not acceptable.

During the flight, I was forced awake by the flight attendant during deep sleep for a meal when other airline attendants would have just let me sleep in peace. I wasn’t able to fall asleep after.

Next, you are forced to wait in a boarding area in Qatar where there are not enough seats for even half the passengers so I was forced to stand for an hour while the boarding was delayed yet Qatar didn’t update the boarding time to later. If you have a medical condition, this can be a challenge. Even for me it was as I had already flown 10 hours and was waiting to fly another 14 hours.

Lastly, being forced to check my luggage at the gate because there was “not enough room and it was a fully booked flight” when it was clear that there was enough room when I was on the flight for another 50 or so if not more carry on suitcases… when you have a medical condition or need special items in a suitcase WITH YOU on board, this is discriminatory and unethical.

Will not fly again. I’m done with qatar airlines. “Best airline” is a very questionable title.

Although on Business class, the seat experience was worse, even than economy.
Too narrow for an average person and absolutely unacceptable when flat-bed.
You have to squeeze your feet in a small hole in the front seat, unable to move your legs to any direction. If you are looking for an expensive way to find out how it would feel like to be lying in a coffin, this is your best bet.
As this is not enough, onboard wifi was an odyssey to connect to but also was too "cheap" to be asked for 10 USD charge for having unlimited wifi, after paying thousands for this... business class "experience".
Avoid Qatar at all costs!

Terrible service, from the call centre to online service and after sales service too. Poorly instructed. call centre staff are not properly trained and have no idea what that they as saying to their customers!!! as a result we follow their instructions and lose money in the process. after 8 months the error has still not been corrected or money refunded!every e-mail is ignored, its not even worth calling their hotline. STAY AWAY!

Abhorrent 21-hour stopover in Doha on the return journey from Amsterdam to Brisbane, arrived at 11:30 pm, no accommodation had been arranged by Qatar despite 10 emails and confirmed approval, shuffled around to 5 different desks, left hand didn't know what right hand was doing, finally transported by minibus to a 2-star hotel half hour from the airport arriving 3:00 AM, absolute worst travel experience ever, don't trust them, their human rights record seemingly carries across to their business culture & ethics, token customer care only
