Very good experience

Check in very quick and easy in terminal 1.
The lounge is common with other airlines and not the best one. Boarding was quick with priority for business class passengers. Full flat seats was really good. The screen of the IFE was big enough but the choice of movies a bit limited for such a long flight. Food was also delicious with a very nice tea choice

A Paris Colombo flight

I took a Paris-Colombo flight with this airline and I was disappointed with the service provided. The boarding actually took place at the scheduled time, but the the take-off was delayed by three hours (with very little in the way of explanation offered). The plane was outdated; my personal screen was out of service; and the stewardesses were snooty and unpleasant.
I wouldn't travel with this airline again.

Very good airline

A two-way flight from Paris to the Maldives via Colombo on 11 and 19 June 2014

This airline is no better or worse than other airlines.
The outbound and return flights passed without any major problems (delayed by 10 minutes on the return leg).
Check-in online lets you choose your seats and there's an allocated check-in desk , which avoids long queues.
Onboard service was impeccable. The drinks and meals were very satisfactory.
The video equipment is getting old on some of the flights.
There's not much space between the seat rows, but that's the case with virtually all economy class flights.
This airline doesn't deserve the negative reviews that have been seen on various forums.

Old planes. Constant delays.

Planes from 1995. There were delays on departure and in the stopovers on both outward and return flights.
Really inexpensive…but you get exactly what you paid for! Or not!
The Kuwait airport: there isn't really anything to do there, except for the cigarettes, which are sold for 20 USD a pack. There were smoking areas in the transit area.

Nice roundtrip

Smiling crew, nice meal, service overall identical to Air France. On the outward trip, the CDG-CMB-BKK flights were on a 10-year-old A330, so the equipment inside was already a little worn.

On the way back, the BKK-CMB flight was on an A340 that was also about 10 years old, but had new video systems. The next flight, CMB-CDG, was on the same A330 as the outward flight.
Everything went well.

Perfect flight

I am surprised of seeing so many negative reviews about this airline.
My flight went perfectly well, on both outward and return trips.
In-flight service was great, worthy of the big airlines, if not better.
Because of this, I am flying with this airline again in March.

I have experienced delays with Air France too and, to answer the person who spent five hours in the airport with some horrible food, I had an even worse experience with Air France. For a Nice-Paris flight, I had to stay eight hours in the boarding area. Only after six hours did an Air France agent show up with a voucher for a horrible sandwich from Paul.

Beware of cancellations

Be very wary of this airline!!! We got our tickets five months before the departure date in order to get better prices. Ok, but guess what? Gulfair...

Très mauvaise experience

5 heures de retard du a un problème technique sur l'avion (qui a essaye a deux reprises de décoller pour au final devoir changer d'appareil), des informations erronées qui ont fait marché inutilement les passagers de long en large dans le grand aéroport de Doha (avec 3 enfants dont un bébé, le calvaire).

une réclamation envoyée a la compagnie qui se moque de nous en affirmant que le retard est du a la crise au quatar (c'est la goutte qui fait déborder le vase...)
nous pensions opté pour la tranquillité avec quatar airways (au prix d'un billet a un tarif très élevé) pour au final un service désastreux et une absence de prise en compte des réclamation.
