Pros: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pros: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Cons: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pros: "Very professional !"
Cons: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."

Pros: "On-time departure. very polite and friendly staff and we got there fast!"
Pros: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Cons: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."

Pros: "Nothing. The flight never happened coastumwr service was very bad"
Cons: "The were not very helpful, I lost the plain and they refuse to change my dates. I am I elderly women and they took advantage. I was force to by one more ticket when I live from I very small income. So know my 3 months social security I have to pay the new ticket. No mony left for food or my medication."

Pros: "Great Airlines"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "The rear exit of the plane. The cabin crew were very attentive, almost too much. I brought my cat and she didn't get to sleep much. I appreciate that the attendants wanted to visit with her and give her their attention but it kept her from sleeping and woke me up. Since she had no proper place to use the bathroom she needed to be sleeping to keep her body clock in order."
Cons: "HOT AIRPORT AND PLANE...no overhead fan on the plane to cool off. Food not very tasty. My seat was switched after it was reserved to accommodate another passenger without my knowledge. The reason was not a valid one."
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: "food"
Cons: "leaving late"
Pros: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Cons: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Cons: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing :D"
Pros: "The food was amazing."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."
Pros: "The service and entertainment!"
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: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "I can't find my baggage.."
