Pros: "Convenience"

Pros: "Food is amazing."

Pros: "Flight was badly delayed and they changed the gates 3 times with no proper announcements. As a result connecting in Istanbul after 23 hours flight from LAX I missed my flight to Baku. I was made to pay EUR 651 one way at THY transfer desk for another flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "For THY being more professional, taking responsibility for their mistakes and not punishing their customers for THY carelessness. As I understand this situations happen all the time."

Cons: "I was in economy. But the legroom was very poor. The next leg of my trip was also in economy, but was much more comfortable with seats further apart and more room under seats. So, you're taking a chance."

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Check-in counter: clerk was “mute”, no greeting, no words about the gate, luggage destination, passport paper. Poor communication: 90 minutes delay, but no announcements Inconsiderate: when the “business class bathroom” located between business and economy classes, was unoccupied, the fly attend Commanded not to use after standing there for 10 minutes. No tea or coffee with breakfast Gate has no information: no destination, no time indicated"

Pros: "The cabin crews on Turkish work very hard. The food is well prepared ,"
Cons: "Nil"

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: "The flight was quite good, with pretty tasty food, plenty of food and drinks, chairs reclined quite a bit, little extra and gifts for kids, slippers, socks, ear plugs."
Cons: "Boarding prices very disorganized. No announcements and a crowd sprig where everyone just pulled at the gate. Very few announcements in general."

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized."

Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Big uncertainty and running to catch the connection flight. Bad feeling. Probably the delay was not caused by the airline, but the crue could not guarantee that the connection woul wait."

Pros: "The staff is very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "leaving and arrival on time."
Cons: "No leg space in economy."

Pros: "MOST OF THE MEALS ARE VERY GOOD EXCEPT PASTA DISHES."
Cons: "PASTA DISHES ...MAIN AND SNACK ARE TRULY BOTTOM OF THE BARREL. TASTELESS JUNK. WHY NOT FIND SOME OTHER DISHES IF YOU CANNOT MAKE PASTA EDIBLE"

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."

Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"

Pros: "Timeliness. Orderly boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment. Remote didn't work. Touch screen was painful to use."

Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"

Pros: "Friendly crew, entertainment system"
Cons: "No air or ventilation on the flight. I took four flights on this trip and all were hot and uncomfortable. Space was very tight. I’m not very tall, yet I was struggling to get comfortable or even eat in the small space of my seat."

Pros: "Timeliness of flights. 3 of 4 planes modern and well appointed! VERY good food."
Cons: "Good plane. Comfortable seats and entertainment system."

Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"

Pros: "The service from istanbul to dublin route"
Cons: "Bad service from bahrain to istanbul"

Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."

Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."

Pros: "I liked the food and the staff were very friendly"

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."

Pros: "Fine, short flight overall. Crew was good, airplane comfortable, and the boarding process was fine."
Cons: "I expected more substantial dinner; perhaps because the one in the Venice-Istanbul flight was. The latter flight got beef/pasta choice, whereas the former one a tuna-fish sandwich."

Pros: "Food and movies where good"
Cons: "I paid for internet and it didn't work. Was told that I disntvoay, so I paid a second time still didn't work. Was billed twice and never was able to connect."

Pros: "Free movies that are current, Free food/drinks/alcohol, Pillow, blanket, eye blinds, slippers, socks. The flight was 12+ hours long, and the ability to watch movies, tv shows, play games, listen to music on the large pad in each seat was pretty amazing. Free over the ear headphones... Very amazing flight"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a bit dirty...but there was a lot of people on the flight and they didn't start dirty."

Pros: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Pros: "Avoiding my to go Israel Delta monopoly is fading"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

Pros: "Checking in personal Irem such a rude person who lies to clients. She lied me about checking bag and choosing sit also. I asked her to talk to her supervisor and she show me the girl sitting next to her was doing checking in also name is Bahar. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs and asked for exit row and they both told me all of them gone already. The thing is funny when I asked checking in was just began. After boarding I realized some exit sits are available. As a Turkish man who worked JFK for.Turkish airlines, I think this was awful experience. Turkish airlines and passengers deserve better service and honest employees"

Pros: "I liked that the airline had a nice sleeping pouch that they hand out to you containing a pair of slippers, socks, toothbrush and paste, socks and eye shields. The food is absolutely fantastic and one of the best inflight meals that I had to date! Economy seats are pretty standard like on every airline. The seats do have USB for your devices and I think the air line should have had wifi but I never have my devices on as I would be sleeping for the vast majority of the time of the flight. Another interesting experience, this was my first trip where I had experienced little to no turbulence throughout the entire flight, a first in any travel for me."

Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."

Pros: "excellent food, service"

Pros: "That was the only problem, it was a long flight. Also had to store my carry on further back from my seat due to the crowd. Made exiting awkward."

Pros: "Best menu vs. previous 3 Turkish Airlines flights on this trip. Great movie selection. Accommodating crew. Comfortable chairs. Nice travel packs."
Cons: "Bathrooms were very dirty by half way through the trip. Crew should keep them cleaned. Free Wi-Fi should be the standard on such a long flight. More leg room needed for Americans & Europeans above average height. Larger water bottles should be passed out before sleeping hours. Each passenger needs a personal fan. Temperature was too warm. Gate agents in Istanbul had a very confusing set-up to get on plane. Gate agents not empowered to help passengers with all issues that arise. We left item at gate in Catania, & gate agent unable to offer any help or detailed guidance to help us work to get it back."

Cons: "2.5 hours delay on Tarmac on outbound flight; 1.5 hour delay on Tarmac on return flight. Outrageous."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "food horrible, lost my luggage"

Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"

Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."

Cons: "Did not have as the flight to istanbul was cancelled and moved to alitalia"

Cons: "The return flight and it's connection were delayed for over 2 hours because of unspecified reasons. We just sat on the runway with no explanation"

"Delayed baggages"

Cons: "Poor communication"

Pros: "This was our first time experience and we appreciated the dedication and the level of safety the crew administered, especially during this time of Covid 19. Thanks"
Cons: "Just keep up the good work."

Pros: "Nothing noteworthy was done well."
Cons: "The boarding staff is incompetent resulting in a 2+ hour boarding time. No control or concern for boarding zones, multiple unnecessary and inconsistent ticket checks, and unclear process. If you took 300 toddlers, made 50 of them gate agents and said board an airplane, you would get about the same result. Food and crew in flight were mediocre. Entertainment system in the seat back doesn’t work, shuts off in the middle of films, and is for some reason controlled by the wrong arm rest. I was in the aisle seat, my arm rest control panel did not control anything, but every time my neighbor shifted her arm it changed the volume on my system. Ethiopian airlines is what failure looks like."

Pros: "Take off was quick, as well as deplaning"
Cons: "the little cornbread cake was pretty bad."

Pros: "I like that it’s a direct flight from Newark to Lomé I like that it’s cheaper than over airlines I like that it’s a late flight: it allows out of state passengers to catch the flight without having to stay overnight in NY"
Cons: "Some crew members are unfriendly The toilets are always smelly and dirty. The floor stick with pee. Pee all over the toilets seats. Unsanitary especially when you are traveling with a child or an elderly. The TVs touch screens do not work The volume of the crew is too high"

Cons: "Food must be better"

Cons: "Customer service need more improvement they should know how to handle things . Just be courteous is. More than enough"

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"

Pros: "Very conformable and quiet."
Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."

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."

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"

Cons: "Ethiopia Airport is ruff. Needs bathrooms renovated and more places for waiting for flights the smoking lounge can be smelled through the hole airport"

Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't have any issues and didn't crash."
Cons: "Food is the SAME every time! Service was not great, skipped me twice on drinks and they seemed annoyed when I asked for a water and a water refill since the cups are so small. I get that its a quick flight and they have to finish before a certain time. But service for the people in the back should be the same as those in the front."
