"seat was comfortable"

(Georgia)

Trip Verified | The seat was comfortable, the leg room was OK for three hours flight. There was complimentary pillow and blanket on each seat. Each seat was equipped with IFE system and universal power socket. Though I had to share the power socket with the passenger sitting next to me, but it was ok as there was USB port on the screen of IFE system.

"seat was really comfortable"

(Georgia)

Trip Verified | The seat was really comfortable for the long-haul flight. Sometimes I have back pain during sitting for the long amount of time, but after the flight I didn't feel any pain. The legroom was also bearable, although I wish there was more legroom as I am very tall and it is always hard for me to find any room where I can put my feet. There was small box under the seat in front of me and it was bit annoying.

"seat and strange noise let it down for me"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | I was travelling from Manchester to Kuala Lumpur via Doha with Qatar Airways, but on-board a couple of Boeing 787 it was tolerable but wasn't great. The legroom isn't great for people over six foot and trying to get past another passenger is very difficult (and the people next to me would not stand up) I was in the window seat 15/16A, which was nice (especially for sleeping) and the large window is great but had even less leg space due to the presence of a large silver IFE box. The seat recline was quite useless - it didn't seem to stay so you had to keep pressure leaning back (I don't normally recline anyway out of respect for others) Whenever the person in front reclined I was very cramped and couldn't move much - forget about accessing the aisle. Having 9 seats in each row is quite a lot in reality, it can result in some armrest battles with your neighboring passengers from slightly narrow seats. Maybe 8 would have given a better customer experience. Ironically my first flight to Doha had just 50 people on-board so I didn't have a problem there but my connections from then onward were much busier. Finally, there was a very annoying high pitched noise throughout the whole flight, which is either from the lights or the IFE boxes. It was rhythmic and once I had noticed it I couldn't ignore it sadly. On both of my Boeing 787 connections this noise was present so I know it wasn't this specific flight. Aside from the obligatory safety leaflet and an in-flight magazine (didn't know people still read these, hah) the seat storage was decent. On the whole I thought Qatar had very good service, all of the crew were lovely but the seat and strange noise let it down for me.

"Boeing 777-300ER was diabolical"

(Australia)

Verified Review | The flights from Doha to Europe were fine and the economy seats reasonably comfortable. The flight to Perth on the Boeing 777-300ER was diabolical. The seats are the narrowest I have encountered, I had a window seat and there was no space between the seat and wall of the aircraft at all. For an 11hr flight this is uncomfortable. Flying at 2am out of Doha the cabin crew took 2hrs before starting to serve a meal and another hour to collect trays. At 5am Doha time the sun was coming up and blinds were not shuttered so no sleep was had.

"seats had good width"

(United Arab Emirates)

Verified Review | A330-300 seating system was 2-4-2, the seats were well spaced, enough space between the aisle seats, seats well cushioned and legroom space was also good. The recline of seats was really good, seats had good width and good back support. Storage space above was also very good.

"avoid the 787 in the future"

(Spain)

Verified Review | I was excited to fly the Boeing 787 by Qatar, but it turned out to be disappointing. The seat pitch is not sufficient, I'm not especially tall (173) but my knees were almost touching the seat in front, and the box of the inflight entertainment located below the seats takes plenty of space. The Boeing 787 3x3x3 layout is not that convenient, more passengers have middle seats and you are bothered more often by other passengers who wish to stand up. I will avoid the 787 in the future.

"A380 seats comfortable"

(United Kingdom)

Verified Review | I found the A380 seats comfortable, something that you expect from a great company even for economy tickets, they were comfy and with enough space even for tall people. I would definitely recommend, as even for a long flight like this case I did not feel uncomfortable.

"Seats were comfortable"

(Australia)

Verified Review | I flew from Doha to Perth on Qatar Airways Boeing 777-200. The aircraft is new and well-maintained. Seats were comfortable. Sufficient leg room (I am 1.75m tall) and seat pitch is wide enough. Sometimes I do find it difficult to sleep on plane but I slept through most of the flight. There is also USB connectivity that allows you to charge your devices but for some reasons it did not work on my seat. So I decided to indulge in the inflight entertainment system and work through Sudoku instead. Overall, a pleasant flight with Qatar Airways.

" very attentive flight attendants"

(Australia)

Unverified | We flew Melbourne to Edinburgh return via Doha. The long flights (MEL-DOH which were 14hrs) were actually the best experience. Very, very attentive flight attendants apart from one leg where it took an hour and a half after take off before we got any drink or snack - otherwise I've have scored them 10/10). Seemingly always bringing something to eat or drink. Good entertainment systems also for 11 yo daughter (although one of the screens had poor tough screen alignment making it very frustrating to select the right choices - although we got there in the end). USB power charging not working on two of the legs (across 6 seats near us). Very short stop-over times in DOH if you choose carefully (we got 2 hrs and 4 hrs - be careful of picking the 16hr stop over!).

"seats are much more cramped"

(Italy)

Verified Review | Milan to Hong Kong Via Doha. I was excited to be on a Boeing 787 for the first time on the Doha Hong Kong legs and although very aesthetically pleasing the seats are much more cramped and hard compared to the more comfortable and spacious A330. Why do they do that?
