What Can You Make a Complaint About

While flying with Qatar Airways, you may encounter scenarios deserving both complaints and possible compensation. Notably, if you experience Qatar Airways flight delays or cancellations when travelling within the United Kingdom, you may have an interest in UK compensation for delayed flights or wonder how to get compensation for a cancelled flight.

Being well-informed is essential. When delays surpass 3 hours or if Qatar Airways offers no fitting alternative for a cancelled flight, Qatar Airways delayed or cancelled flight compensation becomes relevant.

Moreover, if you're curious about a refund for a flight cancellation, or compensation after being denied boarding or missing a subsequent flight due to Qatar Airways' decisions, that's a justified avenue. Other concerns might stem from booking experiences, in-flight services, or post-flight interactions with Qatar Airways.

Know Your Rights

If you're flying on Qatar Airways within the EU, your rights are covered under EC261. Similarly, if you're travelling on the airline within the UK, your traveller rights are covered under UK261. These regulations mandate all airlines to provide compensation for specific disruptions, including significant delays or cancellations. If you find yourself impacted, asserting your air passenger rights involves using the EU261 claim form, or its UK counterpart to seek remediation.

When lodging a complaint with Qatar Airways, precision and thoroughness are key.

  1. Start With Your Personal Information: name as per your passport, means of contact, and your booking or ticket number. This helps Qatar Airways identify and connect with you.
  2. Detail Your Flight Specifics: include flight date, flight number, and departure and arrival points. This aids Qatar in pinpointing your flight disruption.

I had more than 18 hours layover but they did not give hotel

Jun 9, 2024
I was eligible for a hotel and food because I had 18 hours layover. But they didn't even process the visa till when I came to the office. I had to go to 4 different desk just to get my hotel. I arrived I doha at 7.30am I waited for the immigration acceptance for 4 hours. There's no apologies or explanation. They said I should have booked hotel online. Why will I do that? They already know my layover is over 18hours they are supposed to provide visa for the hotel outside. And they didn't even offer a hotel inside and they didn't give me even a bottle of water to show some respect. They just gave me my passport back when I asked them for it. I just wasted 4 hours hungry and sleepy and tired .

Highly unprofessional and waste of time

Jun 8, 2024
Why are you doing so many checks from the time we have landed in Doha. Not was the case in the onward journey. Felt like treating your customer as a nut - checking the passport and the ticket once again while boarding the bus. Do you think we are security threat - what nonsense it is to check the same with in 3 Mtrs distance. Waiting for the bus. No call out zonewise. Dirty environment at C 85. Showing your mean mentality. Shame on the staff and the Airways. Never will travel in this again and will strongly recommend to everyone not to do so. Unprofessional
