Pros: "Food and good service"

Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked how often the staff walked down the ailes to help. They are very attentive. The entertainment is endless. Seats were standard in economy class, I recommended upgrading for that long of a flight."
Cons: "To my flight specifically, it got adjusted without telling me so I ended up missing my final transfer. I was not given a notification for a flight change. Someone met me at the end of my second flight to tell me I missed my connecting flight. With the adjusted flight Singapore gave me, there was no chance I would have made it. They did purchase a ticket for me on another airline to get to San Francisco in the end."

Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."

Cons: "I truly enjoy this airline! No complaints"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Pros: "It was an ok experience, improved by the head of attendants at the end"

Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."

Cons: "Delay at landing"

Cons: "Really we enjoyed this fly"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I would definitely travel again with quatar. Amazing trip long hours but they sure take care of the passenger. Love how they took care of my child"

Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "view above"
Cons: "A gent was VERY tall. I couldn't put my seat back at all. The kicking was so bad I changed my seat."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."

Cons: "I was hoping to replace worldmate with you application. you got it wrong. I travelled from Doha to Guanzhou, Bangkok and back to Doha. I don't even know where Sohag is!!!!! Qatar airways did a perfect job as usual."

Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."

Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Nothing really. Only thing would be you had to be pretty specific with the staff not be woken up because they ensured you were fed and hidrates (not necessarily a bad thing)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."
Cons: "This flight was an older carrier and although it had a USB outlet to charge your devices it didn't work."

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "Great flights. lots of room in economy."

Pros: "Lay flat beds and vegetarian food"

Pros: "Entertainment is epic. Speed to get luggage and depart airport was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding crew had difficulty pronouncing "B" and "D", this caused some confusion. If they had said "B for Bravo", and "D for David", it would have helped them a lot."

Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"

Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"

Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"

Pros: "Emirates has been my favorite! Best flight ever!"

Cons: "Everything was awesome."

Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"

Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"

Cons: "45 minute wait for luggage on conveyor belt"

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been a bit better"

Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"

Cons: "I didn't like that my connecting flight was with another airline"

Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "There is always some passengers that drink a bit more than they should but.... there is nothing we can do with it"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Excellent new plane good food friendly staff excellent entertainment"
Cons: "Staff not bring drinks regularly enough"

Pros: "Verry efficient and helpful even with oversize canvas painting,, didn't expect luggage to be transferred so quickly but the made it!"
Cons: "Delay and worry I would miss connection"

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "The seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."

Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment is as good as ever."
Cons: "The food was wore, the staff seemed less happy and the flight was overcrowded. Not a bad experience, really, but slightly worse than the same flight the previous year. Getting to be the world's best airline may be less challenging than remaining such."

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants skipped over my row while offering beverages. One person was asleep but i was awake and thirsty. I had to wait until an attendant was unoccupied to get some water"

Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"

Pros: "Flew Emirates coach Washington to Dubai to Johannesburg and Bangkok to Dubai to Washington in July 2017. New A380-800 planes were superb. Entertainment system is second to none. Staff is efficient and polite. Except for the "required crying babies" on each leg the plane is very quiet and peaceful. The check-in, however is a zoo. But better to put your best employees on the flights rather than on the ground."

Pros: "Seating and hospitality"

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Pros: "I like the meals"
Cons: "It is hard to request a window seat"

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Pros: "Everything..."

Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"

Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "Excellent all the way."

Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."

Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Cons: "Another meal option was not available when it was my turn."

Pros: "SERVICE!!!! EXCELLENT!!"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."

Pros: "The crew was very professional and courteous."

Cons: "The food is good k"

Pros: "The meals were awesome, flight great!"

Pros: "The crew was polite and continuously offering drinks, headphones and food/snacks. Kept us comfortable and happy during the flight!"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Lost our bags"

Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."

Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."

Cons: "One hour delay. Last minute change of seats."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Boston -Zurich, the most uncomfortable seat possible. I am 5’2 and I barely fit.... Seats are way more comfortable on European flights."

Cons: "The plane was ancient. offer wifi- at least be able to pay for it. charger outlets."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "The a/c or fans were on too high"

Pros: "Excellent service all around and great flight timing with delays and awaiting for transfer flights to land"
Cons: "I travel a least 5 times a year and Kayak is always my option."

Pros: "The bag drop off and check in went very quickly."
Cons: "The plane was late and there was little to no communication to the passengers waiting to board the flight. Very tiring."

Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Plane was clean"
Cons: "Tight space in economy class(to be expected)"

Pros: "good flight didn’t have any problems"

Pros: "Who knows hope to actually get on it and make it to destination"
Cons: "Not sure just know leaving 10 hours late"

Pros: "Meals were excellent and filling! Crew was conscientious and responsive. Plane was very clean. Very impressed and would fly with SWISS again over any other airline."
Cons: "My seat didn’t recline properly, and it wasn’t fixable, so it felt a little claustrophobic with the person in front of me fully reclined the whole flight."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Even though we paid for internet it sucked and was unuseable"

Pros: "Great service; Very comfortable lie flat beds with lots of leg room"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."

Pros: "Staff, and service were good."
Cons: "We had to Run from our arrival gate to our departure gate, and take a train, and go through immigration and then a second documents check. It looked to me like Swiss Air knew we were running close as the flight rarely (if ever) leaves on time. It was stressful for us and for the 30+ others who were still in line in immigration when the flight time passed. It turned out to not be a problem but the published times are unrealistic. Seats were tight and comfort in cattle class is NON Existent sleep on an 8 hour flight was not even possible."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Super slow boarding. Long lines at check in"

Pros: "Service wa a ok."

Pros: "Service was great staff very attentive food was good and crew makes sure you are never hungry or thristy"
Cons: "It was a 11 hour flight and coach seats too small to sleep"

Cons: "I could not obtain a refund."

Cons: "I didn't get on the flight because they lost my luggage and they refuse to give me a new ticket. I was back and forth on the phone with Swiss and still no good word"

Pros: "Thank you for the sandwich!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "No priority boarding with my baby,had to complain that a lot of other passengers were going by us(while I was waiting with my baby asleep in her stroller and me being pregnant) so that the crew would let us go through to get in"

Pros: "Crew; polite helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seating, and the pre booking process. The cost of endless add for a decent flight. Ex. buy a ticket but you didnt buy a seat, luggage, meals, wifi,"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Service was poor - several of the staff seemed to be inexperienced and not very customer service oriented. The boarding process was chaotic at the gate - customs were there to check in but quite a few people were unaware (not many announcements). Also, the Economy boarding process wasn't clear and chaotic (i.e., not by row and you also didn't know when you could board. Also, the person in front of me kept reclining her seat and it went back too far. I didn't want to do the same to the person behind me so it was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "I did not take this flight. I had to change my itinerary to accommodate a change in my work commitments and tried to cancel this flight but was unable."
Cons: "I am never ordering a ticket through your services again. And I will certainly advise friends and colleagues against doing so. Your customer service is execrable. This is the second time in a year that I have had to spend hours of time in an attempt to cancel a flight and have lost the full ticket cost because of all your terms and conditions and fine (=unfindable, unreadable) print. The lack of transparency regarding baggage fees is outrageous. I have had to pay hundreds of dollars in such fees after having had no such notice - and no inkling - that that would be the case. We call this a "racket" in the United States."

Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."

Pros: "Crew were perfect food was fine"
Cons: "Seat was terrible. 44g is one of the worst seat ever. No place for the my legs..."

Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."

Pros: "I was extremely pleased with everything about my SWISS flight. I have family in Switzerland and have flown 8 times in the last 5 years. This was by far my best flight."

Pros: "the entertainment system was perfect, there were lots of movies and shows to entertain you, including newly release films. there were games and music also availble. the seating was comfortable we had blankets and pillows. The beverage service great and the food was good to. although there could have been better options in terms of the dessert ( ice cream taht was provided)"
Cons: "the boarding was poor, we waited in line to board and they did not announce to us that we need to have our ticket stamped before we got to the door, as a result we were sent out of line once the ticket was stamped we had to rejoin the line from the back. When i got through they then said something was wrong with my ticket in which they took it and I was pulled out of the line. they should try to the ticket check and the boarding line at the same time"

Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"

Pros: "Everthing went as planned. Left on time. Cannot complain."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Cons: "Very bad service, staff was not polite or helpful"

Pros: "?"
Cons: "the new Boeing 777 is horrible... no space and small seats >> my feet were swollen, everything hurts the inflight- entertainment is integrated in the front seat, you can`t change screen if you are blinded as i wrote to the service center to change the seats (july 21st) i still have no answer on my mail.... service???? no more again..."

Cons: "Chrap food"

Cons: "Terrible service. Crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. There seems to be an element of arrogance when flying with this airlines."

Cons: "Terrible seats and old.entertaineme.t system"

Pros: "Good staff, food, service"
Cons: "No leg room for us tall people!"

Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."

Cons: "There was wery cold on the plane."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Transit process at Istanbul airport was not very smooth. Ground staff could have been more helpful."

Cons: "My luggage was lost during transit even thout it was a 1h 50 minute layover."

Pros: "Smooth service"
Cons: "The dessert. Change it from always service mousse"

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"

Pros: "Great helpful staff, nice cabin layout with lots of space to sleep, excellent food, free internet, Live TV - what else could you ask for."
Cons: "There was nothing really to dislike here."

Pros: "Food and service in business class were exceptional."
Cons: "Lie-flat seats hard as plank boards!"

Pros: "Entertainment screens good"
Cons: "On the flight from Istanbul to Malaga the entertainment screens were very poor."

Pros: "Check in process, helpful ground crew and airplane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats are horrible for a trip so far, they need more cushion."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Narrow and hard."

Cons: "The boarding and deplane process could be better for business class. Also the seats only have two settings upright and sleep. Several airlines have intermediate setting for meal/movie. To be 5 Star they need to keep up. The lounge (although large) could use better organizing. Too many people walking all around. Very limited space, if any, for a little quiet."

Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Missed my connecting flight. Had to wait 12 hrs in Istanbul for the next flight to Tirana. I missed my mother’s funeral."

Pros: "E"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."

Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."

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."

Pros: "Comfort and service"

Pros: "Service, timing of flight, entertainment system."
Cons: "There used to be more variety of food choices."

Pros: "Boarding , cabin crew , updated entertainment facilities and Ford's served are excellent."
Cons: "Space between seats is not appropriate for comfortable travel."

Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "Plane left late."

Pros: "Very good customer service and entertainment"

Pros: "The quality of their team"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Cons: "the coach seats are really cramped--especially for a 13-hour trip; need to get rid of the buses that take passengers to/from terminal to airplane--wastes precious time with short connections"

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: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."

Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."

Pros: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."

Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."

Pros: "Crew service, as it was a big airobus, half plenty it was very comfortable to be there"
Cons: "lateness at least 40 minutes, while nobody from staff I was worrying about corresponding flight,"

Pros: "even waiting time was long but i do appreciate all the effort submitted by the airline"
Cons: "may be the free shop the turkish items was not to the same level as in local market"

Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."

Cons: "Worst wheel chair service"

Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"

Pros: "Fine experience except that leg room is awful."

Pros: "very nice and friendly cabin crew that gives a great service. many new movies , music.. etc..very good entertainment! the seats are comfortable. the food was taisty"
Cons: "the bording took too long"

Pros: "There was upgrade special on our outbound flight at check in which we took advantage of so we were in business class flight from SFO to Istanbul. That was awesome experience - very comfortable fully reclining seats, gourmet food and drinks, impeccable service, wide entertainment selection, etc. Even on the shorter leg flights we took (i.e. Istanbul to Rome and Dubrovnik to Istanbul) they served food (light snack). We flew economy from Istanbul back to SFO but got exit row seats so plenty of leg room and seats reclined good amount. Again, great service, food and entertainment. All the flights we had on our itinerary were newer planes. Turkish Airlines is so much better than American airlines!"

Pros: "Even though this was a short flight, we were served a full meal! Crew made us very comfortable."
Cons: "We had a 5hr wait at the airport for our next flight. I wish we could have connected on an earlier flight."

Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."

Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process in BKK was haphazard due to non-calling to board by Group number."

Pros: "Very pleased with the entertainment on board, the crews was very helpful and efficent"
Cons: "my meal from BKK to Istanbul was served cold ( eggs and spinach ) they forgot to heat it up."

Pros: "TV accessories - socks, blanket"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

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"

Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"
