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!

Pros: "Crew was great, but food I like more like Emirates."
Cons: "No headphones and was not possible to watch movie."

Cons: "Lack of movies"
Cons: "We didnt travel on qatar airlines we travelled on airlines from chilie but the staff from qatar airlines"
Cons: "The boarding was not handled properly. There was a 40 mins delay, keeping in mind it was never mentioned on the screens. When seeking guidance from crew members about the flight's boarding different answers were given at different time. First it was no delay, just the plane getting closer to the gate, later followed by a 10 mins wait that later became over 30 mins. Once we finally made it on the flight, when requesting a beverage the only option given is water or orange juice and if you have any dietary restrictions (even when providing said information to the airline) you will remain without food on the shorter flights."

Pros: "The plane was steady on both flights I went from Kuwait to Doha to DAR. It would be good to note getting a visa in DAR is not a quick process and make sure to bring USD with you as they only take cash."
Cons: "The food wasn't particularly my taste of food, but was still decently prepared. Also note the grapes have seeds, interesting as I am used to seedless grapes in the USA."

Certains passagers ne portaient pas de masque et ont ignoré les rappels des membres de l'équipage. J'aurais aimé qu'il y ait plus de respect des règles. Grand souci des membres de l'équipage de satisfaire les passagers. Peu d'espace pour les jambes.

Pros: "👍"
Cons: "👍"
Cons: "The temperature was around 18 degrees.i asked several times if they can adjust it to normal the crew kept saying we will ask to pilot etc.no improvement. While facing covid i dont want to get cold!! Secondly no one checked for covid results while boarding and/or on check-in kiosks.i asked during boarding why they are not checking the reports the answer was they thought we had been checked during check-in.totaly fiasco and no alignement.i didnt want to get in a plane people with covid!!"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines, as always, up to the mark!"
Pros: "The food and the fast and efficient customer service."

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
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."
Cons: "My Miles&Smiles were not added to the trip."
Pros: "I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best."
Cons: "The boarding was not organized. I was in Group C. We were chained behind a rope. Boarding started and when the agent nearest to us didn't get a passenger quickly he started to take Group D! I did not appreciate that. This continued throughout boarding. Also, as to be expected!, as newer people joined the the lines they went to the line moving - not their Group line. So we stood behind the rope on C while everyone else was boarding. I finally jumped to the moving line. I was tired of waiting. The kosher meals were warm, but not hot. There is no reason for this. I have been flying International for over 20 years and I know what is possible. The seats - for a 10 hour flight - were uncomfortable. Either I need more padding on my rear end or you need better seats."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly"
Cons: "Expedia has doubled charged me for this flight and do not reimburse. You can't issue two seats for only one person. It's a scam."

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: "I wa in the restroom and the attendant opened the door on my while I"
Cons: "The plane was late, we missed our connection. Turkish Airlines also lost our baggage."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "They don't speak very well English"

Pros: "Cabin/ground crew was professional, nice."
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Pros: "Nothing, just the price"
Cons: "I had 2 flights and both were late, the plane seats is really not comfy and the plane has no entertainment"

Cons: "gerat flight,no complaints."
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: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I had a great time during my flight from istanbul to Seoul . My seat didn't recline and cabin crew immediately helped and took me to a business class as an apology . They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."
Pros: "came home with 2 broken bags, hard to talk to anybody, emailing back and forth since then to replace them, so far offered much cheaper bags and om top of this, a lot of paper work needed to claim those 2 cheaper replacement !!!"
Cons: "very tight seats for 12+ hours across Atlantic flight, old planes, somewhat unfriendly attendants."
Cons: "I missing my bag 10 days and no any details"
Pros: "Crew nice, seats ok"
Cons: "Dirty! in seat pockets had trash on two flight in both my seat and wives seat. The tvs in the seats were filthy, hazy, smudgy. Just didn't look like they clean well in between flights"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There was no order or control when we got to the gate. Three lines were converging on one to get to the gate and no one from security or the airline was trying to have order."
Pros: "Movies selection and food was great"
Cons: "I was sitting in a row with 4 year old and her mother. It wasn't comfortable for them and for me at all, as the child was moving and talking constantly. Well, it's kid, I understand. But as I was going to use restroom I noticed that there was about 6-8 rows where there was only 1 person in 3 seats. Share and spread the space"
Pros: "the crew, meal, flight, every thing was excellent"
Cons: "It was nothing about the flight itself but the about the Istanbul terminal. If Turkish airlines wants more people to travel through Turkey should improve the following: 1- Should make free Wifi available to every one. 2- Should keep the bathrooms clean at the terminals."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"
Cons: "Didn't like my 11 year old have to sit 15 hrs with some stranger Turkish airline very nad with outing family together even you reserve in advance still they mess your sits and I seen so many family was making same complaints of family are with same last name don't take rocket science to keep them together and also veryyyyyyyyyy boarding no one in line it's like fish market"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "No entertainment"

On the way in they had vegetarian options but nothing but meat options on the way back. I totally forgot to ask for vegetarian meals when booking my flight, but luckily there were enough items to get me through the flights. A wonderful flight and crew.

Pros: "overall"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable. Great crew,"
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Pros: "Pleasant check-in staff. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Travelers should be told that Gate 2 to Kumasi will be empty when you get there and that you should go around the corner to the transit area and wait for your flight there. They should let you know that they will announce the flight from the transit area."
Cons: "Could have a better seat like 30A on Boieng 387-8 Quantity of food should be improved Quality of food should be improved"

Pros: "The short flight and pleased to get food."
Cons: "A very lengthy boarding process and the inevitable delay of an hour. Not good when it's already a late night flight. No entertainment console. Quite cramped"
Pros: "Comfortable because the plane wasn't full."
Cons: "Check in and boarding was atrocious. We were told that we wouldn't be allowed to go to the gate if we didn't get through the check in but it wasn't our fault that it was taking so long. There weren't anywhere near enough staff and so by the time we managed to check in we had to go straight to the gate. Same thing when boarding. Took far too long and there was an inevitable delay with no apology. Plane ok. One toilet out of order so had to walk the length of the plane. Games no good without a handset and very few new movies."
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "We were so extremely delayed"
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."

Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."
Pros: "I liked they way how did they respect time ( punctual). They were so nice with passengers."

Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."
Pros: "Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest."
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."

Pros: "The staff where so dedicated. The food was very real and crunchy. Go for the beef instead of chicken. I had both. Was a ten hr flight."
Cons: "The fact that they write your card details carelessly on a pierce of paper when making an inflight purchase. Should be swipe and all done. No need writing those sensitive data down."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms, mediocre entertainment."
Pros: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."

Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines consistently has sub-quality food."
Pros: "I need a refund what do I do for a credit?"

Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

One told me they were looking for blankets and will get me one when found. They were all so busy with food matters. To my utmost surprise after several hours when they were done with food matters blankets began floating around in their numbers. I was really really sad"
