They had superb boarding (started an hour before flight time). Timely pushback from them gate and an early arrival. Flight and service was very comfortable. I wanted to move my flight to an earlier one, only thing was there was no one at emirates in Heathrow to help. Had to call the call the center and pay to change. There were ample seats on the flight though

They had superb boarding (started an hour before flight time). Timely pushback from them gate and an early arrival. Flight and service was very comfortable. I wanted to move my flight to an earlier one, only thing was there was no one at emirates in Heathrow to help. Had to call the call the center and pay to change. There were ample seats on the flight though

Pros: "Excellent care of crew to ensure social distancing is adhered at all times."
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "I had better experience with Emirates before...we had to wait ages for our food but maybe because we were the last one on the list. Food was nice and crew friendly."
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was on time."
Cons: "They could have given the amenities, which I think they forgot"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Some of the crew were neglecting, the food was bad and the boarding system was strange, as people in first class and economy were meshed together (Amman - Dubai)"
Pros: "I am tall and was very happy with the leg room in economy class. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Nothing really. Was completely satisfied."
Cons: "Caused me a 20+ hour layover in dubai in a horrible hotel"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on board was the best I’ve ever experienced on a flight."
Cons: "The headset didn’t work properly so had to listen to music and movies through half the earphones."
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment was amazing The boarding process was very seamless Everything was done on time"
Cons: "Honestly, nothing. I was beyond impressed."

Crews are very rude and unhelpful. Cramped seats in economy. Foods are useless

Lovely aircraft and I flight entertainment. Good leg room. Full flight crew struggled a bit

Seats very uncomfortable, impossible to sleep. Food average, bakery items not fresh. Pockets in seats not large enough to hold a book and a few other items. Cabin temperature too cold, even with blanket. Good selection of movies. Other than that 12 hours of torture!

Pros: "I like how the crow did help me with my dizziness and provided me with an extra oxygen to breath better."
Cons: "I don’t know, but I always find it difficult with food smells, then make me sick and did today in the flight"
Pros: "Qatar Airways are still flying, in the midst of Coronavirus, unlike their competitors. This is fantastic! Onboard, there was a full service and excellent crew, all through the night, unlike their competitors during the early days of Coronavirus, when I last flew. Thank you. Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The movie selection, although vast, was not great. I resorted to downloaded Netflix on my tablet."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices. Staff friendly and attentive, particularly nice is that they feed children first, and offer small entertainment gifts to them."
Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."
Pros: "Very efficient and comfortable flight."
Cons: "The airline appears to have done away with the courtesy pack, and this was the one time I was travelling without ear plugs!"
Pros: "The airlines' film library offers plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat. The crew pushed the service carts in the gangway and hit me a couple of times, and I was very much annoyed because I was waken up while asleep."

I found it okay. Did not think the food was that great. And the service could have been better. Seat was a little cramped. Delay getting to Istanbul made me rush all the way across the airport to get to the connection. This was a not good experience.

Our plane transfer in Instanbul was too tight. Our flight into Instanbul was 30 minutes late and by the time we got off of the gateway to the terminal they were already calling last call for our next flight whos gate was in a total different terminal. We had to run thru the airport and I have mobility issues. I do not recommend offering flight packages with this tight of a transfer schedule.

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was smaller than most other flights and the war phonejack didn't work and the video constantly paused every 30 seconds. Also the 1 8kilo bad allowance in the cabin is a bit unreasonable but I see why they need to because the overhead storage and under the sit storage was less than normal too."
Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."
Cons: "My bags were misplaced I have to wait for an extra day to get it"
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "safe trip"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, would like to be aware no food"
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy check in. Professional and courteous on board."
Cons: "Food could be better of course and the price could be better,"
Cons: "They charge for coffee and soft drinks and have no snacks complimentry"
Pros: "Check-in staff was great at LHR - they were able to configure our seating so that the seat was empty between us."
Pros: "Quick boarding as we arrived towards the end and off quickly because we were seated at the back of pane. Crew were very friendly and flight was very swift."
Cons: "Food and drink was good but quite expensive"
Pros: "Direct flight. That’s it."
Cons: "Boarding - via a bus at LHR T3. Comfort - Cramped “ Club Europe” seat with minimal legroom - same as in economy. Food - disgraceful “tapas” dish of literally one scrap of ham, an equally small piece of cheese and half a scotch egg. Crew - disinterested to the point of surliness. Entertainment - none, this being BA short haul (others can manage it but not BA)"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was 21 years old and showed every minute of its 21 years. Economy class is very bunched. On board food was average at best"
Pros: "Friendly staff that helped me change seat after I landed in a middle seat."
Cons: "Food is bad. Did not like it one bit. Entertainment too limited, expected more from BA (particularly in the music area). Feels a budget airline! Maybe London airport problem, but both flights from London (at the start of holiday and at the end) were delayed. Nearly missed my connecting flight to NZ. Overall: Resent experience with BA and London Heathrow airport was to the extend that my future travel won't be with BA nor through London airport."
Cons: "The attendants were very young and not completely knowledgeable. The flight was efficient, but a cheapo airline experience."
Pros: "Easy trip to Helsinki."
Cons: "Food & drink sales by M&S was unusual. Even water at a price"
Pros: "This was our first time experience and we appreciated the dedication and the level of safety the crew administered, especially during this time of Covid 19. Thanks"
Cons: "Just keep up the good work."
Pros: "Nothing?"
Cons: "Lounge seating and services. Boarding. Lots of uncontrollable people trying to be first to board."
Cons: "Language barriers are always hard, i sat next to someone who didn’t speak English well, one of the flight crew sounded irritated instead of understanding."
Pros: "The food was good, seats were quite comfortable and the crew was awesome"
Cons: "The entertainment was not that great"
Pros: " was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "Liked the peaceful plane ride and room"
Cons: "Not being told why we were delayed or why we were going to be late. They told us over loud speaker and was not loud enough."
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "A"
Cons: "The plane was shaking everywhere thought I was gonna die"
