Cons: "everything...terrible airline"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "The airplane was old and the seats were a little dirty"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Boarding process. Waiting gate was small for the plane we were using"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service onboard the flight was good as usual. Nice and attentive crew, and tasty food as well."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. The ground crew had all the passengers line up in front of the gate, and wait for about 30 minutes before we were allowed to board. No explanations were given for the delay. The entertainment service needs updating. There didn't seem to be a lot of new movies from the last time time I flew the airline over two months ago."
Cons: "Connecting flight From plane to the gates"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "I have flown Turkish Air many times for the past 8 years and they are a solid airline. They have very good food for airplane food, and a decent entertainment center."
Cons: "Unfortunately they have moved away from their Exonomy Plus seats that were great and ample room, whereas now their seating in exonomy is very cramped. They also used to have nice amenities on long international flights like a hot towel and some Turkish Delight before takeoff and landing, but they no longer have that. And my biggest complaint is that they keep their planes unbearably hot most ost of the time. It’s by far the most frustrating thing when your cramped in their tiny spaces for 11 hours."
Pros: "Old fashion service very attentive crew and plane very clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Very odd in boarding as business class seemed we should have been 1st"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The kosher food was bad"
Pros: "The service, the food. The staff is very friendly and helpful."
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: "There simply is not enough room for such a long flight. I havent Flown in a while and was surprised at how tight the seats were since i last flew - both flying from the US to Istanbul and vice versa. However, for the shorter two hour connecting flights, from Istanbul to Tel Aviv, the seats seemed to have more room. This does not make sense."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic. The space used at the gate could not cater for the number of passengers and there was no way anyone with any priority boarding status could make it to the counter. This is not new and has been a recurring problem with this flight and turkish airline does not seem to care enough to handle."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and service"
Cons: "narrow sitting space"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "No soap in bathroom."
Pros: "All of it with the worst service in the world"
Cons: "I did not like the way I was treated by supervisor st the checking desk while checking at Nairobi, I am not sure if he is an employee of the airport or of Turkish airline. he frustrated me and was not offering any assistance, I also realized that he frustrated two other people during and another staff says he is fond of doing that all the time"
Pros: "Food was good on both flights."
Cons: "Seating was terrible. We were in the 2nd row of the normal seats on the right side of the plane. The space between the rows of seats was much to tight, so I had to turn my legs to the side to fit into the space. I am 6'. However, I noticed that the row across from me had about 4" inches of additional space so I am thinking that the row I was on was set in error. This needs to be fixed. Also, they were much to late in turning on the air conditioning as we loaded and waited for takeoff."
Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"
Pros: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "everything was very well done"
Pros: "Turkish airlines have always been perfect for me. This was yet another fulfilling experience with the services, the food and other stuff being extremely satisfying."
Pros: "The flight was delayed, took 6 hours at the airport to get things straighten out. Lost the flight connection,"
Cons: "It took way too long to get the right information on the status of the flight"
Pros: "Not enought time for transit between two flights"
Cons: "Two out of three sutecases did not arrive."
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Very good customer service and entertainment"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I am a business woman and my time is very valuable. I was supposed to fly on May 18,2017 with Turkish Airlines and my flight was rescheduled for May 19 without prior notice,call or a text message.I was driving to Miami on the 18 th just to find out my dilghtbwas cancelled.No one have me an option or asked me to reschedule.I had to fly on the 18 May and I picked this day for a reason.No one from Turkish airlines was present at the airport on the 18 May."
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: "They treated us so well--always with a smile! The crew always went out of their way for our comfort and we really enjoyed the flight--as much as a long overseas flight can be enjoyed, that is!"
Cons: "Sometimes we didn't have a choice on the food because one of the two choices was gone until it got to us, but we still enjoyed the different food than we usually eat."
Pros: "Electronics confiscated from passengers (all passengers, no profiling or consideration for who is dangerous and who is not, which is NOT WHAT I LIKED, I hated it, this political correctness, so everyone "suffers the same", while bad guys still have all the freedom to do terrible things. It is not a security, it is a stupid put on!) but at least our electronics were carefully packed and delivered to Boston. It took whole hour afterwards to retrieve them!!! Terribly inefficient."
Cons: "Stupid, completely idiotic security, caused, of course, by our completely idiotic president Trump rulings, but... Turkish air workers took this stupidity up to an unseen levels. I fight stage 4 cancer, it requires timely medicine. I was not allowed to take on board several critical supplements because they were either in powder, granulated or liquid form (all in their original medical packaging), my custom made crocheting hook was labeled as a dangerous weapon and I was not allowed to take it on board either, so I had no means to alleviate my air flight anxiety. they were going to confiscate and throw it away. Cold "sorry for your loss" was their only reply. They tried to scare me by calling police. Extremely impolite personnel. It took almost two hours, when TA security threaten that I won't fly, to make them pack this little darn crocheting hook together with my iPad. Funny that food on board comes with real metal silverware, forks and knifes included, which are far more convenient and dangerous if I was to use it as a weapon in comparison to a hook (3 inch wooden handle and 1 nah of a metal shaft ending with a small blunt hook, thin - size 2). TA said they provide us with free wifi to compensate for confiscated electronics. I was not able to connect to that wifi all flight long. Movie selection is below mediocre, little choice, practically no quality. Food is bad - not appropriate for my condition at all, but of course I can't bring on board cancer-appropriate food - security labels it as a threat to passengers. No leg room at all for a medium-built lady like myself, can't imagine what thicker or taller people do to survive 9+ hours flight, seats do not recline, pull out tables are of terrible quality- very unstable, so food and drinks fall off even without turbulence, just because of no leg room our knees are always interfere with these flimsy tables. With a comfort and restrictions like I had tickets must cost not a penny over a bus or metro ride, not hundreds of $$. It took about two hours to get my suitcase too - they said our luggage had to go through a second inspection before it gets onto baggage carousel. All in all, I will avoid TA for long flights by all means. Never again. They were an huge downshift to my perfect vacation. I had to go to an emergency treatment today because of the way TA treated me yesterday. Unfortunately, I can't measure how much yesterday's abuse advanced my disease, I am disturbed and frustrated enough to go to court to bring a suit against... yet again, those imbeciles from security do have a good alibi - their actions were triggered by US government regulations."
Pros: "Honestly, not very much. The Entertainment system kind of worked, although the touch screen barely worked, and the movie selection was mediocre."
Cons: "Very old plane, with barely any leg room, poorly functioning seats that didn't recline--and when others recline, I couldn't even open my tray table. The crew was incredibly rude and generally unhappy to help--a consistent show of attitude, as if WE were a pain to service, when just asking for water/tea because they kept skipping us! The food also was really bad, nothing like it used to be. By far the worst Turkish Airlines experience I've had, and I may reconsider booking in the future."
Cons: "Why this difference between India to Istanbul and Istanbul to New York flights?!!!!"
Cons: "Forced me to take beed as Chicken wasnt available. Very reluctant to arrange for an alternative option, and this is after they were already running behind on serving dinner."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was no good. The airplane was so hot sometimes I couldn't breathe"
Pros: "Seating could be wider."
Cons: "Seating."
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: "never again"
Cons: "por for servis"
Cons: "Possible food poisoning from the beef that was served on the plane."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Excellent food and services, both ground staff and cabin crew."
Cons: "Seat pitch is very short on the Airbus A330 for an average person’s height allowing for very limited body movability making it extremely uncomfortably especially on long flight durations."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding process. Lunch o.k. but nothing special."
Cons: "My husband is 5'11' tall and was extremely uncomfortable because his knees were right up against the seat in front of him. The man on the other side of me was also very uncomfortable because of the same reason. I am only 4'11" and so I didn't have a problem. I would have rated this trip excellent except for the uncomfortable seating. I know this is done to cram in as many seats as possible into the plane, and thus sell more tickets, but from a passenger's perspective, this is a terrible practice."
Pros: "Plane itself was nice with very comfortable seats. Good selection of movies and shows to watch in flight."
Cons: "For a flight from IST-NPL they only had beef options for food. Nepal is a Hindu country and majority of people on the flight were Hindu. It's very inconsiderate for them to bit have planned for more non beef food options. I turned on the service button 3 times within an hour. No one came. Separately I also asked 3 flight attendants for some water. None of them got me water! There were at least four parties with kids younger than 3 and a few older people. It would have been nice if boarding call was made to allow these people to board first so they could settle down camly, without stressing the kids and everyone else behind them!!"

Nothing to rave about. Just another flight

Beware of Delta staff at Mexico City International Airport, actually be cautious with most of the staff OF THE AIRPORT, NOT THE VENDORS. Delta staff check-in particularly are not only rude, but also despicable. Because technically the law is on their side and it is, as in America, federal Mexican property, well, turns out that at the first hesitation from the customer Delta (or any airline at this airport, from my experience) staff actually will call federal and National Army (you know that they don't have anymore civil police at the Federal level in MX) on you. Almost a year ago, one of Delta staff physically attacked my brother after AEROMEXICO, Delta Skypartner, did something wrong with their reservation. Anyway, watch out.

The crew was amazing. The plane was crowded but I guess flying around Presidents week causes that

Great flight

The staff was good, movies were good, snacks provided were OK, some type of sandwich would be nice on these longer flights.

Screaming crying kids. Kid kicking seat. Late to board. Late to leave

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew and friendly"

Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."

Cons: "Crew was pretty short with everyone and not Delta’s best - not sure what the story was. Gate staff were allowing people to cut queue lines left and right - why even have the zones lined up if not going to enforce?"
Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "to their Diamond Medallion customers"
Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"

There was no entertainment. Lost my checked that went from Las Vegas to Los Angeles instead of Syracuse.

The fact that it was over an hr delayed. Then an hr to get my bag in Dfw

Pros: "Me rompieron el equipaje"
Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Cons: "Never made it to this flight, because my previous flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."

Pros: "Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class."
Cons: "I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon."
Pros: "Comfortable seating"

Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The lady behind me was a bit of a crank / wouldn’t allow me to recline the seat / kept pushing it up. REALLY , that 3 inches was affecting you . SMH"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"
Cons: "We still haven’t left Dayton."

Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "I liked the extra space on the window side of my seat."
Cons: "Legroom was minimal."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Very disorganized. Why was I put on this terrible American Airlines plane? My headphone outlet was broken, the plane was very uncomfortable, the boarding was disorganized. I thought I paid for a British Airways flight?"
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Wi-Fi onboard free for all T Mobile customers, cramped seat room for a smaller adult even"
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Cons: "flight delay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Flight detoured because of weather, had to land in diff city to refuel which made landing 2hrs later than scheduled. Super uncomfortable and extra long flight"
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I didn't fly through Charlotte on my way home. I went through Philadelphia which was shorter."
Pros: "I don't normally travel long distances, but when I do I fly with American Airlines. I found a round trip from Chicago to Los Angeles for only 170 dollars. I had an overall excellent experience. Thanks for the great hospitality."

Pros: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "Air attendants were not personal able when boarding and exiting"

Cons: "How small the plane was. Not much personal space and I am a shorter person."
Cons: "I was delayed for an hour leaving Tampa and my connection in Charlotte was canceled. So I did not get into JFK until 12:15 in the morning. I asked for a food voucher from American in Charlotte and was denied after waiting so many hrs in Charlotte to get on a 10.05pm to jfk, that was terrible."
Pros: "Because our first flight to philly was extremely late we were going to be unable to make our connecting flight to Wilmington sooooo had to cancel cour whole vacation to myrtle beach"
Cons: "Read above comments"
Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"
Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Seating on United sucks. Seats are not comfortable and don't recline to the degree that Deltas does for standard cabin. Boarding for both my united flights has always been delayed. they are never on time. Ill go back with Delta and pay a little extra for the comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The United App for entertainment would not work. It kept closing. The cabin was cold."
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "I enjoy the plus seats with extra leg room"
Cons: "I found your crew quite unfriendly"
Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"
Cons: "We had a particularly grumpy flight attendant that made the experience less enjoyable for many. Also, while it was a “Lufthansa” flight, it was really operated by United and did not offer the level of service or politeness that we experienced on our Lufthansa flight from Denver to Frankfurt."
Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."
Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."
Pros: "Nice flights attendants"
Cons: "This is not how business class sshould be"
Pros: "The prevoarding was fine!"
Cons: "I was sat next to two verge large people that smelled and farted before pushback. One finally got up and left to sit somewhere else. The flight to SFO was fine until landing when they missed the landing and took an extra hour and 15 minutes to get to the gate. Passengers were scared for their lives! I was terrified at one point due to the lack of knowledge shared with the cabin!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "Excellent support from everyone as all were very helpful with assisting my need for wheel chair."
Pros: "The crew did a good job with the sick woman."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good seating with Economy PLUS"
Cons: "Hot as blazes all flight, crew kept telling me they would cool it down, never did!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Having to wait"
Cons: "We requested Asian vegetarian meal but messed up. That was very pain."
Pros: "Everything was on time and we even arrived in Charlotte early."
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "Great flight friendly person sitting beside me, would like seat towards front but my husband likes sitting in back , we had seats in row 27 & window seat for him he likes looking out. It was very enjoyable. Thank you"
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "Horrible"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."
Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Pros: "Night time flight coming back from Asia."
Cons: "Right tight seats, and terrible over-priced food. The plane seats were from the 90s."
Cons: "Small plane, no TV"
Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"
Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."
Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "."
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."
Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs due to lack of maintenance of the plane and we had to all get off to wait for the next one. It was also overbooked."
Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"
Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."
