Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "don't know of anything"
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "everything! the A380 plane and the onboard entertainment and services was fantastic"
Pros: "average, plan is pretty old"
Cons: "TV is terrible. Not a touch screen ."

Pros: "Emirates always is outstanding service and comfort even for a Economic ticket, but...."
Cons: "This time I had problems, I was in the seat 71 of A380 and I realized it is the worst seat to receive boarding service, I always was the last to receive food, so the fish option was “sold out” ... bad experience"

Pros: "Landed safely"

Cons: "Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "I must admit....this is one of the best experiences I have had flying and I fly this route a lot. I was traveling with an Elder who required a wheelchair and every step of the way it was smooth and the crew was attentive."
Pros: "Air vents over seat, excellent entertainment and good food, comfortable seat. this route doesn’t seem to be too full for the long Hall flight"
Cons: "No foot rest - limited ability to upgrade. Bit noisy down the back but not to bad with noise cancelling headphones."

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Quantas Operated by Emirates is definitely not Emitrates standard."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and timely flights"
Cons: "Very poor planning/organizing , as we starved after boarding the a plane because of the bad time management of the food service We also boarded very late in Abu Dhabi"

Pros: "Beautiful, clean aircraft with multilingual staff-great entertainment choices"

Pros: "The crew and overall experience was great. Comfortable travel conditions and crew was very responsive and proactive in comfort."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, nothing special."
Pros: "I loved it."
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful the crew was outstandingly friendly! I would definitely fly again"
Pros: "The flight itself was great, though it was 4 hours delayed. The interface between Jet Blue and Emirates didn't work."
Cons: "I booked roundtrip flights in two legs, so Jet Blue, Emirates, Emirates, Jet Blue. The two airlines didn't seem to interface. In each direction for some reason, I was unable to check in online for the second flight, which didn't make sense (so Emirates there and Jet Blue back). On top of that, neither could give me boarding passes that would work for the other. The customer service kiosk took about 15 minutes to get this done for Jet Blue in JFK."
Pros: "The crew was great in everything that they did."
Pros: "The crew was very helpfully and nice"
Cons: "Other passengers and there dramas"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good and had no issues. The staff was professional and friendly."
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Very good we appreciate good service and good food"
Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats, and great entertainment ..the food isnt too bad depending if ur not a picky eater, but overall its the best"
Pros: "Kids meals, activity packs, kids headphones, travel backpacks/blankets, all made a great travel experience for the kids (2 and 4 years old). Entertainment system was top notch!"
Pros: "Excellent food, good timing of food, drinks, etc. helpful flight attendants who were efficient and not overbearing."
Cons: "The plane was very cold when we got on, and it was difficult to get a blanket. It was also very cold when landing when we were required to give our blankets back!"
Pros: "The A380 was much more comfortable way to fly than the 777"
Cons: "I disliked the food"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "Flight staff good attitude, condition of airplane"
Cons: "On the 15 hour flight Dubai to LAX, Only one hot meal was served, plus later, a sandwich. I'm a thin girl and barely found the food sufficient - imagine the men!"
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
Cons: "service from a crew member. she was not obliging. we asked for blanket and she responded whenever i am free will give you.which never happened. and she was giving extra good service to the passenger in front of me . she was shouting at passengers as if we are animals"
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."
Pros: "SERVICE!!!! EXCELLENT!!"
Pros: "surprisingly the high definition 17inch screens and the plenty of movies was essential"
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "A lot of space under the seats, good food and beverage."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that some passengers can get drunk during the flight and that they can drink as much alcohol as they can. On the road behind me there were three Arabic guys who were really loud, noisy and impolite during the whole flight. One of them was constantly punching my seat the whole flight and even when I asked him politely to stop he didn't. Instead, he smiled at my face. I told the stewardess about that, but she also didn't do anything. She continued bringing them beers. The floor under their feet was full of empty beer cans. They had at least 20 cans of beer, and after that some wine. I think you should put some restrictions on the allowed alcohol amount per passenger. Wifi is never working!"
Cons: "I had difficulty checking online, because I didn’t have the right ticket number. By the time I contact you and get the right one all the windows seats or aisle seats in the airplane where taken. I had to go with middle seat which can be super tight and uncomfortable when you have two strangers on both of your sides for such a long flight. I wish they email me the right tiket number on time."
Pros: "Very old plane, seats not updated and not working properly, food was served once on an 8 hour flight, there was turbulance for over 5 hours consistently, and the pilots did nothing to go around it. As a pilot, i can tell you this can be avoided. Some of the crew were not friendly. Old movie library."
Cons: "New and updated plane, especially business class, more trained crew, seats that work and function normally, better and more food, served a light breakfast on an 8 hr flight. Updated movie library."
Pros: "Very professional and polite crew"
Pros: "My worst journey."
Cons: "All gy"
Pros: "Boarding and traveling comfort was good .As always staff were very good and attentive.Food not very good snd boring."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "The food in Economy was some of the best I've ever had and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Unconfoetable seat for business class. No priority for boarding in business clas. Old plane."
Pros: "Elite member flying with my wife, no preference boarding for Elite. Were assigned to different group letter No good answers Dissapointed"
Cons: "The seat are not comfortable for a long flight, I felt I was on a city bus it's very cramped and tight and I'm a medium size person, totally not recommended for heavy people"
Pros: "I had a gluten free meal"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Facilities are really nice"
Cons: "I only got one boarding pass at the check in."
Pros: "The staff, the comfort, the food, the green tea aroma scents in the restrooms. <3"
Pros: "They tried to put us with other planes. They weren't successful"
Cons: "They canceled our first flight ( not knowing the reason)from then our trip been ruined, going and coming. We had to buy a return tickets ourselves to get back to Portland. Not happy with them at all. Never were able to go with our original flights."
Pros: "Finally got a vegan sandwich that saved my life after the 13 hour flight before this one!"
Cons: "Crew was. It helpful at all. They created more confusion and frustration. I spend 24 hours calling and talking to them in order to rebook the flight. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The staff is awesome and made the trip comfortable. I aldo liked how quickly we boarded!"
Cons: "Expedia has doubled charged me for this flight and do not reimburse. You can't issue two seats for only one person. It's a scam."
Cons: "First the plane from JFK to Istanbul was two and a half hours late I had a for kids is uncomfortable to wait then try to get a contact with customer service do not give me any straight answers and 3 hours later finally got Somebody explain something overall no good this will be my first time and the last time"
Pros: "Service and people."
Cons: "Long lines...far away gates...and double security check with pat down...besides having electronic items taken away and a separate line to pick that up and separate line to pick up our baggage in Miami"
Cons: "They was late for boarding The food is bad It's was my bad experience this travel"
Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."
Cons: "The computers at the check in desk kept going down, but the staff handled this issue very well. The gates REALLY need a digital board that displays upcoming flights so that I can confirm I am at the right gate."
Pros: "The staff, food, hospitality, & professionalism is 5 star. These guys should train every airline in america."
Cons: "How come a Business Class doesn't have sleeping masks? Unbelievable."
Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."
Cons: "Service is horrible. Airline staff is rude. Airport staff in turkey is eually bad. Avoid this airline and country at all costs."
Cons: "Staff is mean, impolite, and inefficient."
Cons: "the flight delayed for more than 2 hours the seats area was narrow in j-clas"
Pros: "Turkish canceled my return because I had the bad luck to miss the conection flight , I had to buy another ticket in another airline and even that they fined me"
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Cons: "in a previous email we explained that by the time we arrived at the gate in Sao Paulo, the airline refused our boarding the plane and said only "we don't like Kayak". We never boarded the plane and there was a credit to our credit card, so why are you asking how our flight went?"
Pros: "When we arrived at the gate we were told they did not have us in the system and the one gate attendant told us that the airline did not like Kayak. We were then forced to stay in the airport hotel at a rate of almost $200.00 as we were unable to secure a flight on a different airline until the next day"
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "- No security lines when transiting at Istanbul. - Generally well organized. - Decent food and drinks selection on board. - Choice of Turkish and French wine in Economy. - About the same on other points as other leading airlines."
Cons: "- At Istanbul no long chairs for taking a nap during long connections when arriving on a red-eye flight (like they have at CDG or Dubai or many other airports). Overall, very crowded airport. - The plane had older entertainment system with no USB port to charge-up the cell phone nor a power outlet."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and a pretty decent meal was served."
Cons: "The other passengers. :) Turkish was great, but the plane was only equipped with 90's in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Pros: "The entire trip was very good when though it was very long due to the stop over in turkey. The flight was very good ( business class). Service and food was outstanding. The seats were good. Laying down was still a bit tight due to the armrests remaining in the same position. The crew was extremely nice and always helpful. The Turkish Air lounge on Istanbul is great and makes the united lounge in SFO look like a soup kitchen. I would fly Turkish air again."
Cons: "time was to long between planes"
Pros: "That it was a direct flight ."
Cons: "I usually prefer Turkish Airlines and always seek to take it in most of my travels. This time the service was not as I have been used to . Too many people were changing seats with permission from the air hostesses . The air hostesses missed me 3 times for food and beverage . They passed right by me . They weren't organized at all. I had to call them to remind them to give me some food and drink. Plus when boarding they only announced it in Turkish and not English"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the entertaiment was very poor..there wasn't at all audio - music or whatever the landing was harsh the boarding was late"
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
Pros: "everything was good and don rhith"
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "I have flight in many airlines and was my first expeticence with turkish airlines and it really was excellent. Nice service good planes."

Cons: "The flight had been cancelled by airline. Now waiting for refund."
Cons: "Very good experience on a nonstop from San Francisco to Istanbul & on to Thessaloniki. Very friendly professional staff. Good food. Charge outlets at the seats. Big choice of free movies. Istanbul airport is very busy. We had delays arriving and leaving for the connection."
Pros: "everything. it's really a good option!"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is the best airlines we have every flown on in our international travels. The food is excellent. The service is excellent."
