Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "From new York to Doha flight seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Just OK"
Cons: "Airport lounge at Ahmedabad"
Cons: "they cancelled by booking just before hour depature.."
Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food was terrible. It’s worse among the airlines."

Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "Air craft"
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Service is great, planes were on time or only minimal delay. Wifi access, food is pretty descent, blanket and pillow plus small package with toothbrush. Stewardess very friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "The plane was relatively new, the original departure time was also slightly delayed, but overall it wasn’t that bad."

Cons: "Wonderful people! Cannot day enough about the difference that makes."
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Cons: "Everything was above avarage"
Pros: "The flight went well, from boarding to landing."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "All around a great experience."
Pros: "The crew! Had a very bubbly and friend mostly Filipina crew that were extremely friendly and helpful. Having a nice smile certainly helps with the long flight duration!"

Pros: "Food was great. Attendants were courteous and nice. Airplane very confortable and clean."
Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Cons: "same remark : Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."

Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Cons: "I planned a wonderful vacation for my birthday only to face a horrible experience. Not only was the flight uncomfortable, but my television did not work. There was a huge box underneath the seat in front of me which prevented me from stretching my legs outward. The television was on but the screen itself wasn't operating. I reached for the remote located in the armrest only to find the entire piece missing. Only the base was there. I asked the flight attendents three times if I can move to an empty seat and they said "give me a moment". The moment never came. I really expected more from this airline."

Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."
Pros: "Great staff and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Other passengers..."
Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Cons: "Cannot think of anything to complain about."
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Pros: "It's a long way. I was ok. Thanks"

Pros: "It was a very nice flight."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Great service , great planes"

Cons: "We were delayed for 3 hours. We were held in a the boarding area behind security for 2 hours with no seats, no water, no space, and no information. Turkish Airline representatives looked clueless and did not provide information or even look concerned. That was the worst handled delay in my over 30 years of flying all over the world on any many carriers. Once we boarded, the flight went well from there."

Cons: "When i ask for help no one came"
Pros: "Liked the movies and entertainment selections."
Cons: "They didn't have a vegan menu. I had requested vegan and called over the phone a month before my flight and they said they understood. Then on the flight I was told they only do vegetarian which was not good enough. After food was passed out to guests the flight crew dissapeared and never came to collect food trays till about 2 hours after and guests were starting to make a mess leaving food trays on the ground and isles. I had already selected my seat prior to boarding which I paid hundreds of dollars for. Then after boarding the flight crew asked me and the gentleman sitting next to me to move our seats to accomodate for another man that wanted to sit next to his wife. Then I was stuck in a middle seat and I paid for an isle seat. I thought this was rediculous. No one offered me a discount or anything! And the man that wanted to sit next to his wife wouldn't let the plane leave till he was sitting next to his wife. What was I supposed to do? Hold up the plane even longer? This was so crazy!! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Good Service!"
Cons: "Miss Plane due to long line for security check at Munich Airport. So I miss my Plane! Turkish Airline wanted to charge me $798 one way from Munich to JFK USA to rebook flight! so I book a flight with another airline in Munich way cheaper! Turkish Airways is blacklisted for LIFE! after trying to charge me the price of a round trip for a one way rebooking!"
Cons: "The inaccurate time of flights and their late. The type of food is terrible."
Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was almost full. I was assigned an aile seat at row 37. My seat did not recline- because there is a wall behind it - howevera the window seat had a small recline. The seat in front of me when reclined left an unusually small space in front of my face. I was very uncomfortable. I'm a small person weighs 145 lb. this was my fourth flight with Turkish Airlines and was the worst. My wife next to me in the middle seat was fortunate that the passenger in front of her did not recline her seat."
Pros: "EVERYTHING !!!!"
Cons: "NOTHING TO UNLIKE"
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seat were tiny and uncomfortable. The customer service is wprst i have ever seen, complete disasters. The food made hospital food look good. It was terrible. I would never fly with them again."

Cons: "The plane was 2 half hours late departing from JFK to Istanbul and the customer service in Turkish Airline in the beginning did not give me a good service I believe this will be the first time and the last time"
Pros: "Crew needs to be more attentive and polite. One of the crew member passed me with out asking what to drink I waited until she comes back to tell her I didn't get a drink you just passed me she said ok what do you want . It took me by surprise her rudeness was un expected there was no apologies at all. This iwas my first time to fly with Turkish Airline. It is sad that just one member can influence the overall perception of the flight experience !!!!!"
Cons: "I hope this young lady get the proper training to be polite for your upcoming flights!!!!"

Pros: "Desserts were good. Food variety and options were good. Comfort/Entertainment on flight were exceptional. Timely take off and landing."
Cons: "The variety of food was nice, but the main coarses were below average-Dry chicken as well as over cooked pasta. Trash wasn't collected often enough. Flight crew were friendly enough, but I raved about last years Turkish Airlines flight, but this year it was just so-so and I'm not exactly sure why."
Pros: "Great service and staff"
Pros: "Amenitied were great. We even arrived significantly early."
Cons: "Turkish did not made any alternative arrangements for travel or accommodation. I will be flying Turkish in the future. ."
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Pros: "I got a little bit sick on plane and the crew was super helpful and supportive."
Cons: "Tbilisi-Barcelona flight was okay but 5 days earlier I took the same flight from Barcelona to Tbilisi where they changed my flight time and nobody let me know!! I didn't receive any information about it and so I had to spend 6 hours at the Barcelona airport!"
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: "Flight was delayed by one hour"
Pros: "Able to rest & crew very pleasant"

Pros: "Flowers in the bathroom! WOW! Hot rolls with meals! Wide variety of choices in online movies. Somehow my name was dropped from the Vegetarian Meal list. (It was there DEL to Istanbul, but not Istanbul to MIA). So, the chief made a grilled veggie plate for me that was excellent. Crew was very polite and handled the situation in a friendly & professional manner."
Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat. Due to lower back & hip problems I need to get up and stretch. Turkish Airlines changed my seat reservation to a middle seat. The woman next to me was rather large, took up a lot of real estate (took up her seat and overflowed onto mine) and was unfriendly. It was impossible for me to get up, or to stretch. I was unable to return to work today due to sciatica problems related to flight seating. (I checked with the flight drew. The plane was full. There were no aisle seats available even if I could afford to upgrade to another class.)"

Cons: "Nothing. This has been the best flight experience I’ve ever had."
Pros: "The crew was great, however the other passengers made the flight back unbearable. Everything from bad body odour to a child kicking my seat."
Cons: "I didn’t realize I had to preselect food options prior to. There wasn’t a veggie option when they got to me. The crew was super apologetic even though it was my fault."
Cons: "Nothing, not even water, was offered free"
Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"
Pros: "Crew was attentive to all passengers."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to

Cons: "As per above"
Pros: "Crew were extremely kind and professional. Snacks were plentiful."
Cons: "Lavatories were atrocious. There was splatter and stickiness all over the lavatory even before take off. Was quite gross and dangerous in terms of public health. Especially in a dangerous flu epidemic season."
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and on time. Good price as well."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"
Cons: "2 drunk guys speaking Russian I think totally ruined the flight. They were ridiculously loud, making it impossible to sleep. Drinking multiple wines, they got louder and louder and more animated and sloppy. Really gross and for a 9+ hour flight, not enjoyable. Eventually, a flight attendant gently told them no more to drink and was very good. But it was too late. I have flown a ton and have never heard passengers this loud, in a foreign language. In addition, one of them was quite large with a bald head, thus intimidating. We had a very long day and just wanted to rest and that was not at al possible."
Pros: "I was amazed by the flavour and quality of the food. As well, having complimentary drinks available anddd to the experience that made it special. I felt that I was treated as a valued client rather than just a person to fill the seat. That you to British Airways for making my travels a high quality experience."

Cons: "My bag was missing for five days back in Chicago."
Pros: "Its hard to consider a flight where you got bumped up from premium economy to business as anything other than a 10!"
Cons: "The dining choices in the terminal British Airways uses are dismal. I am not sure British Airways has any input to this but the line in arrivals for US passport holders was approximately 2.73 miles long while the line for UK/EU passports was perhaps 40 feet long - not a very welcoming situation. Perhaps a little pressure applied by the major airline could improve this situation."
Pros: "So glad you do not charge for a blanket like so many airline bed (Norwegian Air for example). Staff on BA tend to be professional and low key eg quiet on long haul evening flights. It allows passengers to sleep."
Cons: "I appreciate economy is the low end but now realise I should eat before boarding or bring my own food. Apart from the salad, it was inedible."
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the plane was clean."
Pros: "Basically nothing about this flight was good."
Cons: "We arrived almost 3 hours early for our flight, and STILL ended up running to our gate to make it because we waited over an hour and a half in the bag drop line. There were only about 10 people in front of us in this line, but the guy working the counter had no urgency and would frequently stop to make jokes and chat with his coworkers beside him. There was another woman in tears because she was about to miss her flight. Then, once we waited in another insanely long, slow line to board, our flight was delayed over an hour with us sitting on the plane, which caused about half the plane to miss their connecting flights (including us) in London. This then caused us to miss our final connection in the states, which happened to be a standby flight. When trying to rebook a flight to the states from London, we explained how difficult it would be to get another flight out of our original airport in the states since it was now the weekend. The customer service rep informed us that as long as British Airways 'fulfilled their contract' to get us back to the one destination, it wasn't their issue how we got another flight back home."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Service was wonderful and the food was good."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized with only signs showing for priority boarding. In flight entertainment did not work for first half of flight. Once it began to work a little, there was no notification on how to use it since it was still not working properly."
Pros: "They try there best"
Cons: "The union bull......"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight was unexpectedly delayed making us almost miss our connecting flight even though it was 1.5 hours after we were supposed to land."
Pros: "Movies Food Wine"
Pros: "I expected a wonderful experience with British Air but unfortunately our flight from Edinburgh was delayed , missed our connecting flight from Heathrow. We were put up in a hotel by BA and arrived st Heathrow to find our replacement BA flight was delayed because of fuel issues. Still sitting and waiting."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew, planes in very nice conditions."
Cons: "Could have had more offers of water."
Pros: "The video selection was terrific."
Cons: "I was right in front of a cabinet that the stuardess used and my seat was hit at least three times. The seat bottoms were much too painful for a 10 hour flight, I even sat on my pillow the last five hours just to be somewhat comfortable. Next time I will request a second pillow."
Pros: "The premium economy made for a much more comfort and enjoyable experience."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, gracious and helpful. Adequate space for my knees."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat, but surprisingly didn't feel too squished on this relatively short flight. I don't remember receiving food which means that it was neither good nor bad enough for me to think about it."
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailingly helpful and polite. We paid extra for exit row seats, which were wonderful for my 6'6" husband's long legs."
Cons: "The food wasn't really edible, but the flight was only 5 hours long, so it wasn't a great issue."
Cons: "To summarize it, the manager at the counter told me: you should have booked with Turkish airlines instead of us. This would be my first and last time with British airways."
Cons: "The flight time change (one hour later of etd) one week before has not been motivated. It has been only 2 / 1 day before. The change of policy of food onboard.....flight tiockets especially with ba are not cheap and onboard you have to pay for everything!!! only tap water is free....incredible!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like except for the customer service skills of the cabin supervisor who profusely apologised for BA."
Cons: "At the airport, we were told that we did not have seats together as te flight was oversold. Strange as we had a six year old traveling with us. After much discussion, they gave two seats in the economy plus for me and the child but down graded child's mom to economy. We were told that someone from BA will contact us but it has been 10 days and no call or email. BA doesn't care and is just like all other airlines."
Pros: "Price and ease of finding options."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Cons: "They ran out of food. Did not get a choice"
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Pros: "The folded pizza was awsome. Lots of room was very comfterable."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Pros: "Crew handled the emergency well."
Cons: "We had a mechanical problem and flight had to return to London. My compliant is the maintenance was not done properly which could have been a much bigger problem."
