Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Cons: "no red wine - what is written in the menu in business class was missing the main course meal"
Pros: "The staff were good"
Cons: "Better seats and it was not Turkish Airline they change to another company"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Liked? Nothing. I came up with a new slogan for them based on my experience. "Turkish Airlines: Shoulda flown Lufthansa""
Cons: "Didnt like? Everything. Ataturk is filthy and literally reeks. Gate crews, ticket counter personnel, flight crews are pretty rude and simply refuse to answer direct questions if they dont want to. Seem genuinely displeased if they have to bother speaking any language but their own to communicate with international passengers. Customer Service i believe is merely a joke to the entire company. If i was a religious person i would pray no one ever has to use their feedback system or try to communicate with their customer service group by phone. Thats what i get for being American i guess, just higher hygiene standards and expectations on service for the price paid."

Pros: "Business class was money well spent."
Cons: "The boarding at the gate was a bit congested."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"

Pros: "Meals were delicious and Cheese sandwich and muffins were served at request after the meals were served."
Cons: "Comfort of the seats."
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "The transfer/passport control in Istanbul was very crowded. We were at risk of missing connection. It would have been helpful to have airline representatives in area to direct customers and provide connection information."
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Everything was great but I particularly liked the meals. Many fine movies. However, The movie viewer on my wife's seat did not work."
Cons: "Flying from Barcelona to get a flight to Boston from Istanbul was a mistake on our part. We saved money but were awake for more than 34 hours"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Friendly staff comfy plane"
Cons: "My tv and monitor didnot work...10 hour flight was sooo awfull,pluss i couldnt charge my phone ...When i ask to find me a seat they couldnt and i asked for upgaded seat they have seats but they are not allowed to put me there......10 hour flight I staired at the black screen tv..I paid same amount of money as theothers but got less service and crew didnt even bother the help"

Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Cons: "I am vegeterian. Food was horrible :("
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "Friendly comfortable service."
Cons: "Boarding could be a bit more orderly."
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"
Cons: "Most seats were broke, staff seemed grumpy, 3 out of 4 flights didn't have individual TVs, staff couldn't handle unruly passengers, etc. Won't be using Turkish Air anymore."
Pros: "The whole experience was ruined by the missed flights on both sides of the trip. My flight from IST to KHI was missed because my lay-over was only one hour, and my flight from IAD left hour and half late. I had to spend extra 6 hours on IST airport"
Pros: "Excellent and cooperative staff. It was a smooth flight."
Pros: "Waiting room is too small I guess til boarding. And need wifi."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."
Pros: "The food was great and the movie selection was also good"
Cons: "The person who checked me in did not give my boarding pass for connecting flight and also didn't ask me if I wanted my bags for my layover stay inistanbul. Good thing I asked or else I would have been without essentials."

Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Great price, service, food"
Cons: "they just skipped me once to offer me a drink, but they were very nice when I requested it"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were good."
Cons: "I had checked in and had boarding passes with assigned seats. I need an aisle seat and JUST ASSUMED when the check in person at LAX; tore up our pre-boarding checkin with seat assignments that I was given an AISLE SEAT. I WAS NOT AND DID NOT KNOW UNTIL WE BOARDED. THE GENTLEMAN ON THE AISLE DID NOT WANT TO CHANGE. WE WARNED HIM THAT WE GET UP AT LEAST 3 - 4 TIMES ON A 12 HR FLIGHT. We did and woke him up at least 2-3 times. BAD FLIGHT FOR ME...I WILL DOUBLE CHECK NEXT TIME FOR AN AISLE SEAT FOR ME OR MY WIFE. jAMESDEAN BUCKLEY email@example.com"
