Pros: "Crew was nice. Seat was broken for recliner."

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane"
Cons: "The staff at Atlanta International Airport were terrible; not customer friendly. The supervisor at the check-in counter needs to be replaced.

Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."

Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

You have to fill out a form, web site doesn't work, staff also can't get it to work, you finally get a call back and they send another form to fill out. Staff write the complaint and haven't heard from anyone. I had to start over. Bad at rectifying problems and caring about customers after a trip. I booked 17 tickets for this trip for my clients. I have used you in the past for my clients ..one group 50 tickets. Carol James Travel Agrnt"

We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

I let them eat first, then ate my food."

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"

Pros: "Smooth ride, with no delays"
Cons: "Woman sitting next to me with her baby made the whole ride uncomfortable"
Cons: "I made it to the flight gate 15 minutes before the plane took off. The crew could not re-open the doors to let me in. I was late; this is understandable. However, after that, this was the worst customer service experience I have ever had. WHY WERE THE REST OF MY FLIGHTS CANCELLED? I paid for those, and I should have been allowed to be on those flights. WORST FLIGHT EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE."
Pros: "Turkish airline was a nightmare with customer service!"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight over from Atlanta to Istanbul. Everything was timely and clean."

Pros: "As good as long flights can be."
Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."
Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Cons: "I cannot begin to describe the plethora of issues I had with TK following the military coup. Aside from not answering emails or phones for days, even after getting in touch with someone the instructions I received were apparently only to waste my time because in the following correspondence it became clear they never intended on issuing a refund. I am a Military service member and was not authorized to take the flight I had booked, so after explaining the circumstances and submitting the requested memo...no refund! I will advise all my people to steer clear from Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "The bathroom garbage cans got full very early on in the flight, making it uncomfortable to use them. The stewardesses were friendly, but it was difficult to understand their English and the pilot's English (and I teach ESL). They, in turn, had a difficult time understanding me when I spoke to them in very slow, clear English."
Pros: "I know it has been some time for me to fly but I once did often I think your entertainment way and options were the best I have ever had the privalage to be on, It was great to fly with you."

Pros: "We finally got home"
Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."

Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"
Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."
Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Excellent crew and good food."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Food choices were not good-cold creme cheese tomato sandwich for breakfast and horrible curry chicken for dinner. Staff was young and seemed somewhat inexperienced. They were constantly rushing and couldn’t keep up with servicing customers. When we looked at a make steward to let him know that we were finished with our trays, his response was “give me a second!” Unacceptable customer service!!!"
Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"
Cons: "Cancelled our flight and cost us a lot of money. Then Rebooked us through another carrier and we waited and they wouldn’t take us, said there was only two seats left and we would have to wait until the next evening for another carrier. Wow just terrible service. We drove five hours for this. I’m afraid British Airways is too big of a company and doesn’t really care!"
Pros: "The ride was very smooth! Pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "The leg room and ovearall size was very small. My husband couldn't fit his knees in ."
Cons: "Everything was for sale"
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and efficient. The flights were on time. Easy check-in."
Cons: "Our return trip was "cancelled"__ However, we were bumped and rescheduled to fly Sunday and given no options. So, the return flights definitely put a damper on our overall experience with flying BA. Hopefully, customer service will do the right thing in the end."
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We got delayed for 2h. Also,I traveled with BA before and I received an eye sleeping mask and a thooth brush, but this time those items were not provided. The blanket was smelling quite bad."
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well and had good selection of movies"
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up which is a problem with a toddler needing to sleep. Seat was broken so that pressure would make it lean back. Left over an hour late."
Pros: "The flight to London was fine."
Cons: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Pros: "Great plane - new and quiet"
Cons: "Cramped in the back. Ridiculously so"
Pros: "Was notified many times about flight delay, but was on time. Ground personnel very congenial!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, food and coffee almost inedible! Layover in Heathrow nearly killed me after overnight flight (5 hrs. of chaotically organized airport). Unhelpful and unnecessarily officious personnel in Heathrow."
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. Zilch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to a mechanical issue, per pilot before takeoff. SOMETHING happened & we were all tossed about the cabin of the plane. When it was all said & done, 1 flight attendant had a broken nose, 1 had a concussion, I hit my head in 2 spots, and a little boy hit his head & threw up. I am not a dramatic person, but I've never been on a plane & thought I was going to die – until this flight. Emergency landing in St. Louis instead of Chicago. The EMT crew on the ground? Felt like amateur hour. I have photos to back these events up."
Pros: "i love wverything"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Father with two young daughters was presented at checkin with separated seats, so we had to request others to trade with us once we were on the plane. Which they happily did. I was not able to reserve seats online for some reason; therefore the staff at check in should know that they should try to reserve three seats together for a parent traveling with two pre-teen kids."
Pros: "The friendly staff and the entertainment (movies) made my first international flight very enjoyable!"
Cons: "I paid $100 to sit my the person I was traveling with. I think that's overkill!"
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Check in staff was friendly, and flight attendants nice. Also liked not having to pay for the 2 servings of wine I had."
Cons: "Food was very average and was served really late, after midnight local time. Special order meals were delivered to people and then there was a long gap before everyone's else's was served. btrzkfast very ordinary, but tea was decent"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "I got this 'heap ti"kept from airfare.com and there was no difference to other passengers."
Pros: "They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days."
Cons: "Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food was okay"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
