Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"

Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"

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"

Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Cons: "i took four flights - LHR - IST and ISt - Riyadh. every flight was a minimum of one hour late! there is no semblance of order in the boarding process, it is the largest and most effective bully who gets on first. even children and frazzled parents we not accommodated to help settle the children, which would improve the flight for everyone"
Cons: "had to go 6 times through securety check, had to get out of the airport, and then a bus had to take all the passangers to another terminal. it seemed as the airport staff was not aware that there is a connection flight."
Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. The food was very good for a relatively short flight. Definitely will keep flying Turkish Airlines."

Some of them didn't speek English and didn't understand why thy have to stay in the airport.On the other hand I saw how the officials laughed at him because he tried to fight for the place on the flight by using a foreign language.

Pros: "As above"

Cons: "My charger got confiscated in Istanbul, too bad. I should have been told about this."
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: "During boarding they do not always board the Gold members first and in some cases when they do it is only to go on the bus before the others. I would like the Gold members to go first with either a bus of their own to at least with part of the bus reserved and we are allowed first on the plane."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled two days in a row. When i tried calling the 800 number call center, it didn't work. When i called the Turkey phone number, the communication was bad. After 3 days of being stranded i went to the Turkish Airlines office and they were not able to help me with a new flight or a refund so that i can purchase another ticket home."
Cons: "Turkish did not made any alternative arrangements for travel or accommodation. I will be flying Turkish in the future. ."
Cons: "I missed my first night of a booked hotel and activities, and I wasn't refunded for all of it."
Pros: "Care and food on board were excellent."

Cons: "I woke up twice due to too warm cabin."
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Free beer, edible food, free tote bag with earplugs blindfolds and (crappy) ear phones"
Cons: "Very small seats, long layover in airport with minimal entertainment options, security risks of spending layover in terrorist attacked airport, flying from prague we had to fly 3 hours East only to fly 12 hours West...24 hours of travel to fly from eastern Europe is not necessary. Next time I'll pay more and avoid flying through Istanbul."
Pros: "Comfort of the flight"
Cons: "The long layover in Istanbul"
Pros: "Crews were friendly, on time take of and arrival. food was good"
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: "Boarding employees were so polit The flight was on time"

Pros: "Service when it was done"

Pros: "The people were very nice. Polite and friendly. The entertainment was good as well. I was impressed with their vegetarian food, for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process and the crew handing out drinks and food seemed unorganized. Not sure if they were understaffed. However, they still remained nice even though you could tell they were stressed."
Cons: "I did not like the kind of airplain it is not like the plain it gose to uorp or usa. Please try to imrove and bring good airplain. I flyed from dammam and bahrain and the ace of the plain for differnte time it was not good."
Pros: "I like every thing"
Cons: "Tough landing and strange turbulence"
Pros: "Super friendly & helpful staff! Good food and drink, very nice flight! Nice movie selection and good music!"
Cons: "40 min delay of the first flight got me into a waiting loop of 5 hours at Istanbul. Boarding included waiting time in the cold bus for passengers who arrived delayed. Security check was extremely slow - one xray machine for all passengers arriving from Dar. All in all had already better flights with Turkish"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Broken seat, TV only showing in black and white, ice cold and/or inedible globular food, air attendants with very little command of English"
