Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Too much bad service

Tjue legt me strandes on Iraq and the Manager would not speak to me and tell me if I was rebooked or what, I had my PCR test, was four hours early and complied with everything they asked. I am sickened how they treated customers, I needed to spend $2300 to get back to the US.

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Emirates service has fallen over the last several years"
Pros: "Good overall service."
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: "Annoying passenfer who peobably drank too much"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Crew is attentive and helpful. Seats are comfortable in economy class. Bathrooms are well equipped and generally speaking clean. Meals are good quality."
Cons: "I would change the snack in the flight Milan to JFK. instead of the pizza pesto, I would offer fruit options or regular breakfast food although it is a snack."

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Food, drinks and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Before my flight I choosed my seat online and it was aisle seat. But when I checked in at airport they changed my seat to middle seat. I am not sure why there is a option to choose my seat if they are not going to honor it. Also seats were very little and there is not much room. I am only 5.4 and 140 pound. So not sure how big people can handle seating there for 10 hours."
Pros: "Not much. The plane didn’t fall apart? I wasn’t poisoned?"
Cons: "The seats barely recline, the food is heated garbage, the movie options are few and stale, the flying and landing were amateur-level and vomit-inducing, and the service is curt at best."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Pros: "Fare good. Food good. Staff generally pleasant but will not go the extra step to when needed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats. You are real greedy."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight."
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: "My flight from Budapest to Istanbul was delayed by weather and heavy flight traffic in Istanbul. At booking time, I had only a 1 hour layover, which I commonly NEVER schedule. Upon arrival at the IST terminal gate, I exited quickly and was met at the end of the runway by a Turkish Airlines customer service rep, permitting me to transit directly to the transit lounge, rather than sending me back through security yet again. As she looked at my boarding pass for the next flight, she knew who I was and she sent me directly to the proper gate for my next flight. Turkish Airlines, you ROCK! (My bag even made the connection!)"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and service"
Cons: "narrow sitting space"
Pros: "Service, crew were great."
Cons: "Choices of Indian movies and TV programs.game solitaire can be more automated especially the end."

Pros: "Crew was top notch. Very friendly and accommodating. Always a smile on their faces. Arline was nice and clean. Long flight but comfortable. Keep it up and continue to improve. I will be a repeat costumer"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever"
Pros: "I got a return ticket from Houston to Lagos, the first leg of my trip went pretty well, no hassle at all, the staff and crew were great and professional."
Cons: "But the second leg of my trip which was Lagos back to Houston was horrible, the Turkish Airlines employees at the Murtala Mohammed International airport Lagos were the worst ever, unprofessional, rude and lack basic knowledge of boarding. Decided to do their own thing rather than what the airline allows. It's almost like they lacked training or just don't want to learn. No accountability whatsoever as one of the employee said "it's not like it's gonna affect my job anyways". Poor poor terrible customer service, no courtesy, no etiquette. I can go on and on but ain't nobody got time for their negativity."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, food and flight in general. Pleasant and cheerful crew."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work on my seat. Not a big deal, but inconvenient."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats are very tie"
Pros: "Nice seats, and staff"
Cons: "The family behind us had kids, they were yelling, kicking my seat and had a cat they were holding. I am highly allergic to cats and at first couldn't understand why I was coughing so much. I was very disappointed the staff did not make sure this animal was contained at the back of the plane."

Cons: "Ground staff in Istanbul were very rude! Staff would not respond to lights turned on on the flight as well, for any assistance."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Ground and air staff"
Cons: "Seats a bit too crowded"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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: "My first time flying with Turkish probably my last. Too many delays, first from SF to Istanbul and then the worse part no one was able to tell me from which gate my flight to TLV, I received at least 6 emails from you saying a different gate each time and we had a delay almost two hours in Istanbul. Because of all the delays I missed a few important phone conferences regarding my business. Unprofessional service! if I was running my business the same way I had no business! Not going to do this mistake again!"
Pros: "Everything was great! Nice service, good food, enough space, I was impressesd! Congrstulations!"
Cons: "I liked everything, no dislikes."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"
Cons: "See literally everything above"
Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."
Cons: "Seating in the middle seat and 2 smaller people sat on the aisle and window seat"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "breakfast included stale rolls and not really anthing appealing but the crew insisted on waking everyone up for it! ! Maintenance of the aircraft cabin leaves much to be desired - toilets unclean seat reclining mechanism faulty."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Cons: "Turkish did not made any alternative arrangements for travel or accommodation. I will be flying Turkish in the future. ."
Cons: "Some of my electronics, clothing, and personal belongings were stolen from my luggage"
Pros: "Flight in early November, where flying was very relaxed and spacious."
Cons: "TV and Lights gave me a headache, but nothing you can do."
Pros: "Good Food, Nice Accommodations, Great in flight entertainment options. Would do again for longer flights to other destinations."
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: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
