Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Earlier travel and respect of initial timing. If they also afforded a place to rest for the long lay over in turkey."
Pros: "Comfortable for that sort of journey"
Pros: "Food was great! Crew was excellent and I loved entertainment choices!"
Pros: "my flight never happened I am still sitting here waiting over 24hours later..."
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "The cabin crews on Turkish work very hard. The food is well prepared ,"
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
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: "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"
Cons: "When we arrived walking to the shuttle the crew had thrown our play pen n stroller out on the walkway. They didnt take it inside with our luggage.It was checked in with all the suitcases! So luckly my son recognized it as we were walking by. Very disapointed if he hadnt noticed it we would of been out of luck. No baby bed or stroller! Why dont they take it with the luggage OR at least let you know they dont transfer them for you! Not happy"
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 really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Cons: "Why does Turkish Air boarding always have to be so chaotic - pushing and shoving, etc. Why cant TK control their business class space - people from economy always coming up for bathrooms when there are plenty in the back....."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"
Pros: "Very professional, helpful staff. Clean plane. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about honestly."
Pros: "The crew members were all very helpful and went out of their way to make sure that everyone on board was attended to. The food was great too!"
Cons: "Our flight left an hour behind schedule after a bit stressful of a boarding process."
Pros: "Happy with all services"
Pros: "Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal."
Cons: "Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Kind cabin crew Ontime departure"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Cons: "I'm not home yet. The flight was cancelled but the airline never informed us so we spent $50 going to the airport only to be told when we got there that the flight was cancelled. We are still waiting to get home and they've told us 3 days until we can get out. We understand that weather is an issue but the airline has been completely unwilling to communicate, refusing to speak in person at local sales office, not answering phone calls, etc. Hoping they make this right because this has been. A horrible experience"
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines delivers on Atlantic long-haul flights even in Economy. Service is always great and entertainment options are abundant."
Cons: "Second meal options not so great"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I haven't been informed about it AT ALL, only when I arrived to the airport. At the Turkish desk, they didn't manage to book me on another flight, so I had to purchase extra two tickets for approx. $600 from two different airline companies. BAD! BAD! BAD! From both Kayak and Turkshit airlines!"
Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "I really appreciated the service. I asked questions that were real to me but could come across like childish and the staff took great care of me."
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: "Nice staff, food was good, comfortable seats"
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!"
Pros: "I did not fly back with Turkish airlines. I decided not to take a chance. Please read comments below."
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."
Pros: "The service, food, efficiency"
Cons: "It seemed that the handling and leaving the plane took very long, probably due to airport services"
Pros: "Very professional and forthcoming crew, nice food, good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "A bit older plane with very weak (invisible in light) entertainment system monitors, yet clean and well maintained."
Cons: "Security going from venice to Istanbul then israel could have been better"
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Pros: "sevice, personnel"
Cons: "they have no good service at all, no smile face at all. they treat customers like as if we are traveling for free. checking counter are all look like they have bad day, they are in a bad mood."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Seat back entertainment systems were quite good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. Meal was OK, not great."
Pros: "Overall, it was a pleasant flight with good food and entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was inefficient: delivering coffee one cup at a time and not even offering it to everyone. I had asked a flight attendant for a glass of water and was never brought water until I asked someone else. The check-in personnel and flight attendants seemed to have no knowledge of toddlers traveling with a carseat, so I had to explain to them that he travels with his carseat or he manages to get out of his seatbelt. They made some calls to see if it was fine to bring the carseat onboard and finally gave us the ok, which we were very grateful for. When it was time to board and also to exit the aircraft it was a very slow process...much slower than usual. Most airlines have you boarding 30 minutes prior to your flight, but we were still standing around waiting."
Cons: "Would not r commend in any capacity"
Pros: "The timing The price"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Everything other than what we wrote was fine. Seats were good, it was comfortable etc."
Cons: "When flying any flight, it's nice to have entertainment. When the entertainment doesn't work on long hall flights it's a problem and it was not working on this 13+ hour flight. Also, we dont like complaining about not having wife 36,000 feet up in the sky, but if it's offered, we would have expected the crew to be familiar with it. When we asked for help with the wifi set-up, the crew seemed to be unable to help with that and we were left with no wifi the entire flight."
Pros: "Not bad"
Cons: "It would be best if I wasn't losing my luggage regularly in this route"
Cons: "How you book for me two tickets and you take the money for same day going and retuning"
Cons: "Set in business class he has no own entertainment old airplane seats are ok but limited to certain positions"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."
Cons: "Layover time too short so a small flight delay resulted in a missed connection. No entertainment system on board, seats very small, food bad and disembarking was very slow."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Very unfriendly flight attendants. Late departure"
Cons: "Bathroom could have been much cleaner."
Pros: "every thing was fine. very friendly"

Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."
Pros: "Comfortable trip"
Cons: "Hot food not great"
Pros: "Lots of terberlance but good flight"
Cons: "The terberlance"
Pros: "The crew was very good. Helpful and friendly."

Cons: "The quality of service and aircraft"
Cons: "why do you have 3 people in 1 row and zero in another?"
Pros: "Great professional and fast"
Cons: "Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable."
Pros: "For a short hour flight, i say it was just fine, not really enough time for a movie or anything so it makes sense not to have a TV with every seat, and it is no big deal. i slept the whole way and didnt even realize we took off or landed. could be more comfortable but again i was able to sleep the whole way without a problem"
Cons: "There were announcements about the flight being delayed which were difficult to understand. On announcnent of the boarding procedure, families with children were not given priority and all passengers were called on together raher than by rows (BACK TO FRONT) so boarding could take place without delays!"
Cons: "Old entertainment system, otherwise, everything else was fine"
Pros: "I did not board the flight to Chicago reservation was wrong (operated by Egypt air ) both airlines denied me I bought another ticket from Lufthansa for$660. I spent two days in hotels. I arrived Chicago Monday noon. I missed two days of work. Please I need refund for my money $837 My name :Mahmoud Helal 15705 brassie court #2s Orland park Il 60462"
