Professionally from a to b.

Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I've been on in years."
Cons: "The food was awful, the lounge was worse than the free ones, and the service was absolutely the worst I've experienced in years."
Cons: "Tv and food"
Cons: "on time, but bad connection experience"
Pros: "Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "All the pieces to have provided an excellent experience were there, but they didn’t come together. It was nice to get some food, and the movie choices were pretty good."
Cons: "Hot, like super hot, in the aircraft. It was horrible."
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Liked that they moved me to a better seat - was sitting next to a cranky old Turkish man - who complained every time we brushed his legs getting into our seats- he refused to stand to let us into our seats- I said this is not gonna work and they found me a great seat with some normal passengers."
Cons: "Food was just ok, plus it’s a longer trip - I understand they kill the lights to let people sleep but offering more drinks - soda and water would b nice - rather than having to go to back and beg- they know who is awake and watching movies - b nice to ask."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "6 hrs delays"
Pros: "Food was really nice"
Cons: "Crew wasn't caring, poor service"
Pros: "Great service , great planes"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "What once was an appealing upgrade is now outdated. Turkish Airlines should look into upgrading their fleet. Otherwise food and service are great as always."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a bust. Our entire isle had issues with the system, movies not playing, music sounding awful. Even cameras and flight map were out. kudos to the cabin chief for going above and beyond and making arrangements in case people wanted to switch seats."
Pros: "the food and service was outstanding as always on Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly Uncomfortable, and I was in Business Class. It seemed to be a newer plane. The seat was like sitting on a bench, not in a seat, and the distance between rows was almost non-existant; it was very distressing and disappointing...."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly. Main course had a variety and the prawns were especially good."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment even for business class passengers."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat. the flight is always delayed and boarding chaotic."
Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"
Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."
Pros: "Super service clean nice airplane ✈️ departing arriving on time"
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: "The service was excellent and the staff was so professional and nice"
Pros: "Low engine noise and vibrations. Temperatures were comfortable"
Pros: "The food was decent and they seem to want to please."
Cons: "I always try to avoid the airline because they keep the cabins so uncomfortably hot. No matter how many clothes you take off or complain it is like a Turkish bath. It is torture."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "My only complaint would have to be that their bathrooms on the plane were a dirty. Other then that the airlines was excellent!!!! I would definitely recommend Turkish Airlines to family and friends."
Cons: "If they provided any food, I slept through it. But I think I would have woken up, do I don't think they did. It was an early morning flight and luckily I brought some breakfast, or I would not have eaten for several hours on my transfer flight to SFO."
Pros: "It's always pleasure to travel with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment worked."
Cons: "I booked a window seat but the seat I got had now window. I couldn't do online check-in."
Cons: "You could be choose food... one of the dish was only pasta... what about the people who's allergic? I am... The business class crew was very stuck up! Totally looked down at people who wasn't in the business class... The Aircraft has no AC that you could adjust air blowing on you! It was incredibly hot the whole time !"
Pros: "I sat on the right side of the plane this time and I was more comfortable than last time where my seat did not recline. Food was great and this crew picked up the dishes much quicker than my first flight"
Cons: "I asked for white wine and lady gives me red. Then I asked for the correct one and felt an attitude only then confirmed when I rang the attendant button it took them 18 minutes, yes, I counted to come to my seat. Then I asked for another drink. This lady was not as nice as the rest of the crew and I observed. I'm sorry but I'm flying 13 hours I will be asking for things."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Much of food, esp mac and cheese, cold."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The plane left on schedule and connected me to my next leg with no problem"
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: "Very professional, helpful staff. Clean plane. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about honestly."
Cons: "I wa in the restroom and the attendant opened the door on my while I"
Pros: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Great flight. On time, crew was courteous and well trained. Seats comfortable with a good entertainment system. Good food."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Pros: "Good food on board, TV is in every seat and USB plug to charge."
Cons: "Crew is okay. Does not really pay attention by the end of the flight. flight from Miami to Istanbul is very long - 11+ hours"
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: "I had a really long lay over and got a free hotel. None of the airline personal will help you find the hotel desk you need to get to, but if you keep asking around you'll find it eventually(in arrivals next to the starbucks). Shuttle service to and from the hotel. The hotel was fine(I mean not great but it was descent)."
Cons: "The flight attendants aren't super nice and if they don't understand you they kinda just move on. So that was sort of annoying."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."
Pros: "I liked the fact that they gave us two meals and offered drinks three times. I have gone on a different airline that charged for everything and wouldn't even sell water."
Cons: "The main dishes were okay and so were the desserts. For some reason the side dishes were weird and didn't taste as well."
Pros: "Excellent food and service. Very friendly and professional crew."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great! Flight was just extremely long!"
Pros: "The food!! The flight was in time and also the flight attendant were so available and caring"
Cons: "I have wifi in board for an hour for whatsapp messaging I would have beloved to have it all flight"
Pros: "Crew and stewardess were fantastic"
Cons: "Bathrooms needed cleaning on the long trip from Addis Ababa to Houston! They were nasty because guys can’t seem to hit the hole. So there was urine on seat and on floor."
Pros: "The efficiency of the whole process"
Cons: "The cabin attendants need to be warmer and more friendly"
Pros: "The crew members were very accommodating and friendly. They do a wonderful job. When I told them that the power was not working in my seat and that I needed it for my CPAP (I call it my anti-snoring device), they arranged for me to move to another seat where the power worked for the CPAP. When the power did not work in the new seat for my laptop, they offered to let me charge it in a more powerful outlet near the galley."
Cons: "The power didn't work for my laptop. It did work for my CPAP device. Some of the seat control buttons were out of order."
Pros: "Nice aircraft and comfortable seating in economy with a good selection of music and movies on the seat back entertainment. Business class was mostly empty and looked very nice and roomy. They should upgrade their frequent flyers the way other airlines do to fill those empty seats and generate the good PR that results. The food was good in my opinion, and the Ethiopian coffee is great. Affordably priced tickets was the selling point for choosing them. They are a young airline and while they go through the motions of being a modern service-oriented airline, but alas for the most part they aren't there yet."
Cons: "We've flown a few Ethiopian Air flights now and while the flight attendants are nice, they aren't always on top of things and paying attention to the needs of the passengers. Not as helpful or attentive as we're used to. Boarding is chaotic and the overnight transfer at Addis Ababa is a total mess. If you get to leave through the airport in the early morning things are relatively painless, but what a nightmare of pushing and shoving chaos when it's busy. The hotels they put you up in are mediocre at best. Last week we enjoyed a long wait for the bus ride to the hotel, cold food when we arrived, and a nice hard bed to "sleep" in. We probably won't fly Ethiopian Air if we have to overnight in Addis Ababa again. I'm willing to pay up to fly another airline and skip the overnight as it's just not worth the hassle."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late departure"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"
Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, although it did help I was the only passenger in business and the food was definitely better than expected and an improvement on last time I flew with them, around a year ago."
Cons: "The cabin was looking a little tired."
Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"
Pros: "Crew was good. Aircraft was fresh and clean."
Cons: "The movie selection is very mediocre"
Pros: "The short flight and pleased to get food."
Cons: "A very lengthy boarding process and the inevitable delay of an hour. Not good when it's already a late night flight. No entertainment console. Quite cramped"
Pros: "Comfortable because the plane wasn't full."
Cons: "Check in and boarding was atrocious. We were told that we wouldn't be allowed to go to the gate if we didn't get through the check in but it wasn't our fault that it was taking so long. There weren't anywhere near enough staff and so by the time we managed to check in we had to go straight to the gate. Same thing when boarding. Took far too long and there was an inevitable delay with no apology. Plane ok. One toilet out of order so had to walk the length of the plane. Games no good without a handset and very few new movies."
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Pros: "It was a very short flight"
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "the flight"
Cons: "extra charge , unable to book meal"
Pros: "The boarding was superb."
Cons: "The food is ma ma!"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "untrained staff, pathetic food very conjusted spacewise."
Cons: "Lost my bags, missed two connections due to delays, took a bus home instead"
Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "The aircraft. Its an older and much used 777 200. Seats, bathrooms, etc have lots of mileage. Needs overhaul."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"
Cons: "I had to purchase the upgrade to business class at the airport. On your site business class was not available."
Pros: "The flight service"
Cons: "The food was good"
Pros: "צוות אדיב ורגיש לנוסעים ויעיל"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה מגוון לא הכיל פירות או ירקות טריים , היה מבוסס על אורז ופחמימות, לא הוקרן מסךמסלול הטיסה, לא היו אזניות זמינות"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."
Pros: "It is ok the flight"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Cons: "the hotel they put me in in the connection was horrible"
Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."
Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was attentive and fairly kind - bathrooms were cleaned but could have improved on the amount of times it was cleaned - poor air circulation"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Pros: "Flight was delayed over two hours, because of shortage of aviation fule causing delay in fuelling aircraft"
Pros: "The inflight music (tons of awesome Ethiopian music, from jazz to pop) and solid Ethiopian beer."
Cons: "The boarding process was cumbersome but I think that's because of the airport not the airline."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats for sleeping. Nice big windows- best in class. Two hot meals served on board."
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
