Qatar airlines: avoid if you can

Jump to last reply

We had option of flying direct flight from US to New Delhi in India with some of the US carriers. Unfortunately we got persuaded by high ratings on service of Qatar airlines. It turned out to be disappointment. Change of flight at Doha airport is torture. Very crowded and lack of services. Airplanes do not connect to terminal and one has to go back forth on a bus in 110 degree weather. Flights are crowded and service has nothing distinctive about it. Flight staff appears to be less experienced and tend to be more eager to attend to Arabs with long white robes.
I got offloaded from my return flight from Delhi as they could not accept payment for extra bag. Reason: their credit card machine did not work. They could only accept Indian currency in cash which by Indian laws you are not supposed be carrying. Next available flight was offered two months later. I bought another ticket from other airline and came back to US. Never never fly agian with these middle eastern rackets.
