Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Not the most comfortable business class out there

Pros: "Crew was very uncouth and very foolish. The steward insisted that I sit in a row with another elderly pax, though rows after rows were vacant and social distancing could have been enhanced"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "We didn’t get tea or coffee :("
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Solid flight. Emirates always delivers. Nice snack meal on 60 minute flight."
Cons: "This is the second time I have flown the AirBus 380. If you can make sure that you fly this airplane. Even in coach, there is ample leg room and comfort. The flight crew was very attentive and prompt in their service to passengers."
Pros: "Great food & great entertainment. Love the free WiFi"
Cons: "Me"
Cons: "Fly Dubai are just substandard. The codeshare flight are ruining the reputation of Emirates."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Cons: "Be on time. Flight delay was ~3hrs. Flight operated by Fly Dubai and eve though my ticket was with Emirates got charged for coffee and water!!!"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "it was good, i like all the services from staff."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing bad"
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"
Cons: "There was a nosiey family setting behind us they bothered us an the ppl around us the little kid was very hyper and loud un polite and the father him self is very rough when getting up an setting as he would grap the chair very hard and he would move and kick alot we complained to the crew but he didn’t stop and the noise and bothering was there the whole flight, the captain of the flight felt like he isnt a professional as the plain was moving in unstable way on a high speed and uncomfortable degree where we felt unsafe at a point, the flight was Delayed one hour so as the time we took of we reach to dubai an hour late and had just around 50 min to get to the connected flight we had to run and we couldn’t rest or take a look at the airport our waiting time was 1:50 min because of the delay we had to run for the next flight, i think that Emirates airlines should stop dealing with Flydubai crew as they aren’t as professional and they are effecting in a bad way, i have traveled many times with Emirates and this is the first time i dont feel satisfied, next time ill make sure the flight isnt oprated by Flydubai they crew and captain is not in the professional level at all."

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Cons: "How one of your crew member expressed herself to another crew member regarding the passenger next to me. just because he asked her what type of vegetable were in the eggs. Your crew member was very inconsiderate. All she had to do was answer the question and not make any other comment to her co-worker (Joyanne) about how she wish they (meaning ) passengers would read the menu. I was very disappointed about her comment. Even worst, to see how inconsiderate she was and how she did not even considered if this gentleman could read, or did not have his eyewear. I believe her comment was unnecessary and inappropriate at the time. I could not quite get her name, but she does not need to deal with the public."
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"

Better service, can be further improved by anticipating customer needs.

Pros: "Sits are very comfortable and the food is amazing."
Cons: "The door from the US plane was closed in front of our nose and the staff was extremely rude.In Boston the Turkish Airlines representative from the luggage transfers didn't have a clue what he's doing. It was a complete disaster. So, the 1:10hrs between Cluj and Istambul is not enough for an US flight. You guys must schedule more time so people can get to the US plane on time. The Airline is amazing, good food, good crew, great sits, but please work on this schedule because it's so exhausting to stay an additional 11 hours on the road."
Pros: "The Turkish crew is very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines is perennially late. I’ve either missed my connection or had to run to my gate every single time I’ve flown internationally with them. This seems to be pretty well known among the travelers that use them often."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was mostly good."
Cons: "Our cabin was very warm and seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "I will inform everyone I know not make customer to your company because of boor service"
Pros: "Crew was great. The sit was great for an international flight in economy class."
Cons: "A passenger clipped her nails without collecting her clippings while a crew person passed by. Although it may be that this is a culturally accepted practice, I would prefer that in international flights, a crew member will request the passenger to clean after themselves or do it in the lavatory."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Cons: "I was bumped from my flight. Suspect it was because flight was booked thru kayak instead of directly with airline. Will not do that again"
Pros: "Nice service & people"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I had to rearrange my bags 3-4 times even though I paid $80 additional for extra weight"
Cons: "long lay over"
Cons: "To long of a flight"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 8 hours. The food was horrible."
Pros: "Friendly staff,"
Cons: "My infotainment center was broken for the entire 13 hour ride. Luckily I had my phone but it would have been nice to have the expected entertainment options. The service carts only came through twice leaving a many hour gap with no drink or food service."
Cons: "Seating too tight/ crew staff members at Istanbul airport"
Pros: "This flight was not available"
Pros: "The service from istanbul to dublin route"
Cons: "Bad service from bahrain to istanbul"
Pros: "Almost every things"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Service was excellent and plane very comfortable for the long journey."
Cons: "No vegan options. I thought I was getting a vegan meal that I called to request a month ahead of time and the flight crew told me they only had vegetarian. Needless to say my snacks were not quite enough to hold me for 13 hours."
Cons: "Turkish Canelled my flight"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats are very tie"
Pros: "The staff!"
Cons: "The turbulence lol"
Pros: "More leg room at my seat and crew was great"

Pros: "Setting, speed, arrival"
Cons: "Long queue at passport control"
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Not a lot of legs space"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Efficient transfer aside.from long security process. Beautiful plane."
Cons: "Long security process. Limited leg room."
Pros: "The Transfer desk granted our request to switch our flight from Istanbul to Chicago to Istanbul to Los Angeles. A meeting that I had initially scheduled in Chicago was cancelled and would have meant an extra day of travel and hotel stay. By allowing us to go directly to LAX we got home a day earlier and didn't have the hassle of going through customs, checking in & out of a hotel and going through another set of security checks with all our bags. Additionally, we had great service, food and entertainment. Especially liked the wifi that allowed me to read and send emails, texts and do some work."
Cons: "Even though they had at least an hour to transfer the bags from the Chicago flight and put it on the LAX flight, the bags didn't make it and they didn't find them for about 24 hours but did deliver them to our home at 1:45 AM (@37 hours after arriving)"
Pros: "Timeliness Cleanliness Orderly boarding Courteous crew On board meal edible - even tasty"
Cons: "Seats a bit narrow"
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Pros: "\"
Cons: "The amount of security we had to deal with. I was searched 3 times and they decided to confiscate my laptop since the battery charger was dead."
Pros: "Friendly service and plenty of food"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight but there are free tours or free hotel accommodations that are offered"
Pros: "_ very delicious food - nice stuff, - good service - good plane - good selection of new movies,episodes and live TV - long trip to Egypt but with fun and enjoying it - gave chance to those people to entertain you while you are in long trip - one more time was very delicious meals ...like it so much Thanks guys."
Pros: "Very good service, nice food, comfortable plane, Wi-Fi available"
Pros: "Hey, two checked bags free, free in flight meal and drinks including alcohol, free in flight movies and music, free headphones, free blankets, and a free toothbrush, yea toothbrush, its like flying in the way way back."
Cons: "The check in lines are very very long and take forever"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 hour delay. No announcements. Had to use my passport just to use the restroom. Food was terrible."
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul. We did not know the gate number until one hour before departure, because there were only 3 monitors in the area that we sat in and there are so many flights, so the flight did not appear on those monitors. Only the one main monitor in in the center of the airport is large enough and there are not seats in that area."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and friendly. Overall, it was a good flight"
