Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "okayish"
Cons: "Delay could be complimented by faster speed"

Cons: "Improve the process for boarding people were standing there for 45 minutes to 1 hour. People there needs training"

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Everything from booking, online check-in, self printing of Boarding Pass, BIz Class lounge, Flight. Flight too short (KL to SG) for me to eat and enjoy the inflight entertainment."

Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."

Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"

Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Pros: "all of SQ"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."

Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."

Cons: "In spite of ordering vegetarian food, was offered a non-vegetarian option and was told that is Asian vegetarian. Food quality was bad too."

Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system. Poor screen visibility. Cramped"

Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Pros: "Hard to find lounge for bclass users"

Pros: "Crew is big on service and being true professionals. Always smiling and being attentive"
Cons: "AC works when wheels are up and engines kick in. So its stuffy whilst on the ground"

Pros: "The comfortable with pillow & blanket given... Crews are friendly & approachable."
Cons: "The food is average taste... a bit salty :("

Pros: "Everything.."

Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."

Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."

Pros: "Always great and efficient service. Comfortable despite the limitations of the plane itself (don't particularly like Airbus planes)."
Cons: "Wish the food could have been better and the choice for dessert wider."

Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."

Pros: "Great Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Thank you flight itself was v good but not check in"
Cons: "Check in was terrible Long slow moving lines to just drop a bag! Can definitely improve as it is not like this anywhere any longer"

Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"

"This flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "Amazing trip Qatar airline is great"

Pros: "Very pleasant and comfortable flight with QA."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and seat very comfortable."
Cons: "If I did not have to spent night in Doha waiting for connecting flight."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Great food and service. I like the short layover / transit time."
Cons: "Multiple security from Doha to Chicago. One should be sufficient."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"

Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."

Pros: "The airline was helpful even though the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Good aircraft, crew attentive."
Cons: "Food was poor."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "The time of flight changed 1:30 hour erlier and we did get noticed we were about to miss the flight it’s so annoying but at the end we catch it"

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Lost bag"

Pros: "Crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"
Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"

Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

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"

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "timing"
Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."

Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"

Pros: "Entertainment always the best!!! The spacious seat and quick check in system"
Cons: "The crew can improve by more attentive and Mayb more staffs. The flight is full, they quite busy. But General is good. The food can be better options"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."

Pros: "Double seat on economy class upper deck"

Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"

Pros: "Every thing was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."

Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."

Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."

Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"

Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"

Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"

Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff"

Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."

Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "Service was some what better than in the business class."
Cons: "I requested special meal when booked my ticket. I was told no vegetarian meal or sea food except for chicken and was given a just a roll and desert. Half an hour later after I finished what was served I was asked if I wanted left over vegitarian dish??????"

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Food n movie selection"
Cons: "Noisy seat n very less leg room"

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It felt comfortable."

Pros: "There was pretty much nothing I didn't like. Everything was great, including the Business Class Lounge in Dubai. The service was great, the staff was very pleasant, the comfort of the seats was unmatched."
Cons: "I remarked that the entertainment was OK, only because I have seen most of the movies and tv shows that were available, the response time for the buttons between the remote and the view screen was sometimes slow, and of course, the WiFi, I'm sure, will be improved with time."

Pros: "boarding was organized"
Cons: "not enough time for changing flights, had to run to other terminal"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Iwas unable to select vegetarian meal on webjet online service"

Pros: "Great entertainment options, decent food, comfy seats with a lot of legroom"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing"

Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

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: "Everything"

Cons: "The crew wasn't as attentive to me as they were to the gentlemen on the plane. Felt a ignored quite a bit."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My seat was changed after I had booked and paid for flight."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Cons: "Up grade with new movies. When I was booking the flight I choose my seats. But they at the airport they change the seating and separate the family."

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "everything...terrible airline"

Pros: "Professional service. (Overall)"
Cons: "1.No punishment for smiling. 2.Giving the bread with clippers is great, But not enough: not if the passengers Didn’t wash their hands. 3.Operating the seats (2 buttons)may Not be the easiest thing to do."

Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."

Pros: "Seats extremely tight."

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 recline and comfort of the seat is good, and the map and entertainment system is OK."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we sat in the airplane for an hour before we took off, with kids screaming and the cabin at seemingly sauna temperatures. Once we took off, drinks weren't even served until 2 hours after take-off (for a scheduled 6:15pm departure - actual was more like 7:45pm). Maybe it was due to some light turbulence along the way or something, but they should tell people that is the problem and the reason they are not serving food and drinks, if that is the case."

Pros: "The flying smooth, staff pleasant"
Cons: "No charging points, chairs not reclining, plane too small, toilets to far back. Didn't like the plane at all."

Pros: "The food was excellent and the crew was super efficient."
Cons: "Tight bathroom and no leg room."

Pros: "Vegetarian option was tastier than other flights!"
Cons: "They ran out of a lot of food and drinks we wanted. And almost ran out of vegetarian entrees for us even though we requested them ahead of time. Almost no leg room in coach. My touch screen wasn’t working properly which made it hard to choose and watch movies."

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."

Cons: "Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight."

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

Pros: "Food was great so was service"
Cons: "All was good"

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

Pros: "Flight was on time, relatively clean and the food was quite nice"
Cons: "For a flight leaving at almost 1 am, it's quite annoying to be force fed dinner and prevented to sleep for the first two hours of the flight. Dim the lights and do "on demand" dinner please."

Cons: "The lost 3 of my bags"

Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats, no individual entertainment systems. Long boarding without a lot of staff facilitating extra coat/overhead luggage storage because of winter, then we sat on tarmac for two hours because they missed their slot to take-off."

Pros: "Had ti spend while night in the Istambul airport. ...."
Cons: "No connection till following evning"

Pros: "The crew is always very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space in the overhead bins."
Cons: "The seats are cramped just like any airline."

Pros: "The security checks to board the plane were extensive and there was potential for the situation to be very stressful, but the personnel handled themselves very well under the pressure and stayed calm."

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

Cons: "seats were definitely narrow"

Pros: "we made it safe everyone was nice things went smoothly"
Cons: "the 40 min delay added and extra half day to the trip // everything else was fine // i don't like this form either, should be simpler... you make it seem like you care for me, but then I'm just a piece on a conveyor belt"

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."

Cons: "They are simply liars!!! No shame, no responsibility they gave information that flight was canceled I'm MIA, September 8, 2017when I called them three times. But after Hurricane Irma, when I call them and ask for refund money for not having flight! ..They just simply lie !... like passengers don't show up. .just don't pay money! !! In this devastating time, that hepince in Florida! ...It's so shallow, not fair and not professional action, ether NOT RIGHT! !!....."

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."

Cons: "Same as above!"

Pros: "My above score should be 5 stars in all categories. They were running a special price on business class upgrades. It was fabulous: food great, service attentive, and seat that totally reclined to bed. I slept over 8 hours."
Cons: "I could not change the stars above."

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"

Cons: "They had to reset the entertainment system multiple times"

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

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Quantity of food served was less for 13 hour flight"

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: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."

Pros: "food was good, good entertainment, comfortable seating"
Cons: "service was slow and inefficient"

Pros: "excellent food, service"

Pros: "The sevicewas great! i liked their food. It was very fresh and testy. The tv screen had a lots of great movies. I enjoyed my flight. Thanks"

Pros: "The one episode of Modern Family from the one of the old seasons"
Cons: "The fact that it took 4 (in 4 hours) attempts and a request to fill out a complaint form that got the staff to switch the air back on on a flight to AFRICA!!! I was about to undress myself to stop sweating!! Seats are uncomfortable and TV selection outdated."

Pros: "Nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed- late to my connection so luggage was lost and I was 3 days without luggage."

Pros: "Helpful cabin crews"
Cons: "Interval between servings of meal is too long"

Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."

Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."

Pros: "The food was very good; crew very nice. I'd recommend this airline."

Cons: "Baggage handlers poor. One of my bags was dented and the other had a buckle broken."

Cons: "canceling our flights and lying to us on the phone after we pay extra for daytime flights"

Pros: "Everything, confort, food, crew,entertainment, excelente experience"
Cons: "A small delay arriving from Kuala Lumpur to Istanbul, we had to run for the transfer flight even though it was with the same airline"

Pros: "Wonderful Airline , great seating , clean planes and cooperative cabin crews highly recommended.."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "They lost half the bags on the plane, including mine, so there was a huge line to make lost baggage claims. Turkish Airlines pretty much runs ataturk airport ist. So they should make sure the Wifi there works. Which it never seems to."
