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!

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..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Cons: "Food is ok but can be improved."
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"

Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Even though I told Steward not to wake me for the meals but still I was woken up 3 times for two serving of meals."
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
Pros: "Quality of service"

Cons: "They can try harder to improve the food."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "The seats were good, more reclining than Etihad, Luftansa and United airlines and a good leg space, although I'm 5'4. Food was good and plentiful."

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Everything was amazing."

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

I had bought a ticket with two checked bags but when I did the check in they made me pay for the second bag saying it wasn’t included in the ticket. Plus, I had asked for vegetarian food when buying the ticket and they didn’t gave me special food. Don’t know if it is eDreams fault or Turkish Airlines.

Pros: "Too short For my experience is not hectic"
Cons: "Entertainment crew food"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Food wasn’t good"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late to take off, putting us very close to the time of the connecting flight to NY. Due to that we were rushed in Istanbul and our luggage was not transferred."
Pros: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Cons: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Cons: "Flight was late, I had to run like crazy to catch the second flight"

Cons: "Same as before"
Pros: "Food"

Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "Food was above-average for international flights, and the staff visited the cabin frequently, checking to ensure that customers were okay. It definitely felt like a more personal flying experience."
Cons: "Ground support (desk, etc.) in Istanbul was not convenient - the communications were crossed often, and on a long layover we were told incorrect directions and missed an opportunity to sleep in the airport in their resting room (seems to always be full)."
Cons: "No entertainment system in the seats."
Pros: "Low engine noise and vibrations. Temperatures were comfortable"
Cons: "See comments above about connection at IST."
Cons: "No room"

Cons: "One of my bags arrived broken. I'm contacting Turkish Airlines about it."
Pros: "Friendly and at tentative staff. Being timely."
Cons: "That there was nowhere at the Berlin airport that we were told to drop luggage at B25....all we saw was to board at A4 which is where we sat until it was time to board. Then they guy said I could not carry on my bag, I had done so coming to Berlin from SFO, so made no sense to me. So we had to dash to B 25 and then back to A4. The other thing, having an extremely painful back, there was nowhere for me to sit during the time of going through security etc. All caused stress and enormous pain."
Pros: "Price price and price"
Cons: "They should serve Asian food for asian flights"
Pros: "this particular plane had PLENTY of leg room, I could really stretch out and take a nap. Just depends which plane you fly on Turkish. Food is good for plane food."
Cons: "I don't know if English speaking is a requirement for the crew, but it was difficult to ask questions to the crew in English, even simple questions like "Could I see what the cake looks like to choose my snack?" This didn't really interfere too much with the flight"
Pros: "Landing!"
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."
Pros: "I have taken the same route earlier past year Atlanta-Istanbul-Sarajevo ,and return Overall best experience best comfort and definitely beat food"
Cons: "Not mich to be unliked honestly Normally there are long wait lines ,not with Turkish"
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"
Cons: "The tv sett wasn't working ."
Cons: "Crew was slow to pick up trays."
Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs, the entertainment was wonderful especially for such a long trip."
Cons: "It is not the airline but rather Istanbul airport. I would have been more convenient with a little more organization to help the massive amount of people going through the airport."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and welcoming"
Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."
Cons: "Lack of space for over 1.95m person, uncomfortable seats (seat can not be adjusted because the button was broken for the flight over 10hours!), old fashioned seats, no usb to charge any device."
Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Cons: "legroom."
Pros: "My overall experience with Turkish Air was a pleasant one from the time we boarded until we landed. The crew was nice and very accommodating. The food was very good and warm."
Cons: "On the way over, it was perfect, but on the way back, the plane experienced an issue with the air conditioning system. It was very hot for 10 straight hours!"
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Cons: "The A/C in the cabin was not working properly and for the first 2 hours was not even working. I had a hard time breathing, I was sweating and felt like I was going to faint. Eventually it worked better, but was on and off during the flight. It was unacceptable to let the plane go with the A/C not working properly. They even tried to blame it on the engines, that they had to work in full to get it going. I've flown hundreds of times and this is the first time I encountered anything like that."
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: "None"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by one hour"
Pros: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."
Pros: "Service, food."
Cons: "Check in booth when we checked in bags were very difficult to deal with."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good food, great crew."
Cons: "Both coming and going my transatlantic flights were delayed. first time to address a mechanical problem with the heating/cooling system of the aircraft (1 hour +) and the return flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours with no explanation."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is very accommodating and even fed us on this short flight."
Cons: "They tend to generally don't keep their planes very cool and it gets a bit stuffy at times. In economy class, not much leg room as with most of the planes these days."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"

Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."

Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Pros: "Gemma Crane was excellent! She knows the benefit to a cup of tea and made me feel very special for the entire flight. Thank you Gemma."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Free cup of tea!! Perhaps lightly more leg room"
Pros: "Quick access to the airport and gates"
Cons: "Free food on board"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "The seat was awful. Narrow with little leg room , hard on the backside, minimal recline."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Could have been on time and better prediction of delay length"
Pros: "The crew, the food and the smooth journey."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "The breakfast croissant filling was disgusting!"
Pros: "Very good crew. Friendly. Smiling. Helpful. Short flight. 50 min."
Cons: "Don’t like the business class seating configuration. The entertainment system played up and only worked in half the cabin. They tried to fix it without success"
Pros: "Comfortable economy seats. Excellent experienced staff."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment system is old and a bit slow."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "I arrived safe and sound"
Cons: "Even though I purchased an exit row seat we were packed in like sardines. I know airlines have to make money but that flight was ridiculous. also, the plane was way too warm for much of the flight. Not sure if there was a problem with the air but for these prices...fix it please."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Cons: "In flight service needs to be improved"
Pros: "Love flying British Airways very pleasant and polite"
Cons: "The seats do seem to get smaller each year"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "Crew and aircraft are fantastic. ."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "waiting long time for check no meal on board"
Pros: "Ground staff in London was amazing! The flight from Barcelona to London was delayed because of weather condition. Once we arrived in London the ground staff made sure all of us (almost 20 people, lots of kids) could get the flight connection to JKF. The shuttle bus was already waiting for us, the ground staff indicated to us the faster way to get to our gate after passing through security checking. Everybody could get the JFK flight!"
Cons: "I'm gluten intolerant and there was no gluten free snack!!! Lunch was served as soon as the plane took off, but for the next 5h of flight nothing else was served. I asked if they had some gluten free snack, they told me there were going to check, but they never got back to me with an answer. I was starving arriving in NY. Aircraft was too old and it didn't have USB charger. And the individuals screens were also too old and had really bad quality for watching movies! It seemed that I was in a flight from 20 years ago!"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Bag that I should have been allowed to take on as a carry on but woman at check in said it was a full flight. Meaning while the whole bin above me was empty. At least let me gate check bag if it didn’t fit. Especially because she let the couple in front of me take their bag as a carry on afyer she first told them they couldn’t take it. Double standard. Then after all that the bag is lost. I fly foreign often and Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The flight safety video and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "paid for reserved upgraded seats - didn’t get them, no help at airport, have to email for refund. Not even water or coffee on plane. BA deserves to go out of business"
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Pros: "I love the bins by the side of the Airbus, and for an economy seat there was a good amount of leg room."

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Have been sick for 5 days from plane sickness/vertigo. The turbulence was awful."

Cons: "On my San Francisco to Panama City flight my vegetarian meal was not there. It wasn't a big deal in the end because I slept through most of the flight. I do find it odd though that on all of the other legs of my trip I had my vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Losding procedure orderly, staff helpful."
Cons: "Pretzels are getting old, anything new out there?"

Pros: "Boarding flight was orderly. For some reason there was a lot of passenger patience waiting in boarding lines."
Cons: "Checking in (self checkin to obtain baggage ticket) was terrible simply because United separated first class and economy areas. There were few if any signs directing passengers to the proper area. The areas were as far apart as they could be, straddling the security entrance. United was extremely busy at the time. Waiting in line for a kiosk only to be told it was first class only was inexcusable."

Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Cons: "No one notified me that my trip was cancelled I found out myself and then had to rebook after waiting two and a half hours on hold for someone at United for assistance no one ever answered"

It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself.

Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "On time clean and friendly staff"
Pros: "Staff was awesome!!!!"

I couldn't even shut it off. no leg room. all in all, united sucks united charged me extra to get on this flight, then told me they didn't have room for me. they finally got someone to agree to be bumped. I was the last one on the plane, watching everyone else get on. Meanwhile, my alternate flight was leaving at the same time."
