Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"
Pros: "comfortable seats good service"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Pros: "Crew were extremely helpful and kind. Very responsible and polite."
Cons: "LCD was not touch screen and was extremely difficult to work with . I couldn't scape from an accidental menu which I was dropped in games and missed whole flight to enjoy something in LCD ."
Pros: "Space, food, service, handling"
Cons: "That I could not and cannot retrieve my flight on the Qatar Airlines website."
Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "Everything, great airlineevrething"
Cons: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."
Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was quiet so no boarding issues done quickly. Food was good. Good choice of flights."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi. Grew not a friendly. Seats are very hard after 6 hours. The dreamliner is already aged. The screens are in poor condition already."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"
Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"
Cons: "It was canceled while am at the airport and i rebooked"
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Friendly crew Good choice of food and beverage"
Cons: "Aircraft changed without notice Trapped in cramped window seat No storage bins IFE strobing windows tabs and would not switch off Useless design of chair lead to loss and destruction of my Kindle"
Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend it. Excellent service, good food, good on board entertainment. Flight attendants and crew in general very polite and very helpful. Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly, I had no bad experience with this flight.."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Very good connection, big entertainment selection."
Cons: "The crew and the service wasn't the best. A bit slow, and unfriendly. Not what I expected! It's been very cold."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Pros: "Amazing service the whole way, extremely polite and helpful even though I'm not one to ask for much. Food was great and also the entertainment, definitely flying with them again."
Pros: "Baggage policy and amenities on board as well as the Istanbul airport as a connector."
Pros: "Fast and easy."
Cons: "The new Istanbul airport is way too big and confusing. Its pretty but needs people improvement."
Pros: "Crew amazing, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"

Pros: "Dessert, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Cons: "Waiting 2.30 hr after boarding time and never got anything back from Turkish Airlines for wasting my time"
Pros: "From beginning to end - it was a great flight. Food was exceptional as well as service."
Pros: "nothing really special"
Cons: "Food is very Poor Seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Cons: "The vegan meal was a bit underwhelming. I ended up not eating."
Pros: "Nice seating, nice food, lovely crew"
Cons: "Waited too long to board"
Cons: "No complaints except boarding was a little hectic. It would have been better if there was more organization on who boards when and more control by staff."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "Flight was very punctual (actually early enough to cause problems with being collected on arrival), despite being full, there was ample space. The food was very edible, brings service was sufficient and the crew were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Entertainment System, Food"
Cons: "Leg Space, Airplane Space, Staff, 1 Hour Delay for no reason"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "You dont have your own air vent and regardless of how much money they make from your ticket, they try to conserve in air. Asked multiple times because myself and everyone around me were fanning themselves off, staff didn't care and temperature didn't change."
Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "great good/service and very comfortable flight."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Cons: "boarding was chaos seats were tiny and food was abysmal"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "Food, entertainment wery friendly staff"
Cons: "It was to hot in the airplane"
Cons: "Poor Business class Entertainment system didn't work Seats didn't recline Boarding was terrible Staff at Istanbul airport very bad Organisation terrible support very bad"
Pros: "Friendliness toward kids was really good."
Cons: "The movies didn't work until an hour after the flight started. Really."
Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people"
Pros: "Very spacious, lots of room, on time. A nice experience overall."
Cons: "Snacks weren't free. No entertainment, but to be expected on domestic flight."
Pros: "Modern 777 with seatback entertainment system and usb charging ports. Massive selection of entertainment. In-flight meals were excellent, U.S. airlines should emulate."
Cons: "Cabin temp was a bit high, my only complaint."
Pros: "Good airline. One passenger got sick from Dhaka to Istanbul flight and the plane had to make an emergency landing in New Delhi, India. We were en route again after couple of hours. However, we missed our connecting flight from Istanbul to IAD. But Turkish Airlines took care of us. Gave us hotel accommodation, food, etc. and even the visa fee. Also, being an elite member, was also able to use and enjoy the newly built CIP lounge at the Istanbul Airport while waiting for the flight to IAD."
Cons: "Customer service could be little bit better. Language seems to be a big problem. Not too many people understand English."
