Pros: "The ANA crew is pretty awesome. They are super nice and professional. I would 12 out of 10 travel with ANA again."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Amazing"

Pros: "Food is bland, boring. Entertainment contents are limited and old movies"
Cons: "As mentioned above, more new selections of movies. Better taste and quality of food, please."

Cons: "Serve the cold soba for all meals. :) Love it."

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Slightly delayed"

Pros: "Excellent cabin crew."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, economy seats are narrow."

Pros: "ANA was awesome as usual."
Cons: "The flight with United Airlines was horrible. The seats were small... leg room not the best. The flight attendants were terrible. I called 3 times to get headphones and they never came to give me any. The food was dry and we were only fed twice. I’m vegan/vegetarian so there wasn’t any options."

Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"

Pros: "Logjam Manila traffic, confusion at MNL, late for check in, but staff got me on the plane. Then my suitcase was busted open at Chicago O'Hare on the conveyor belt and ANA issued me a replacement on the spot. Two problems [ not their fault ] handled beautifully. ANA is truly amazing. Thank You !!"

Cons: "Better seats and food. More water please"

Pros: "The crew are great!"
Cons: "Not enough wheel chair at LAX! Waiting for wheel chair too long! Finally, need to walk by myself at LAX. Very bad service for wheel chair at LAX! Need to improve this service for elderly."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Overall the flight met expectations for service, comfort and food."
Cons: "Variety of entertainment (or lack of), and the flight being continuously delayed. Even though the flight ended up departing just an hour later than initially scheduled, I would rather receive one notification for a 1-hour delay, than four notifications for 15-minute delays."

Pros: "Friendly staff, fast service, and good food."

Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."

Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Seats were designed for Japanese folks. Nothing like being stuffed into a center seat with narrow seats."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We both - Wife and me - had to pay around 200 USD for TWO Extra Suitcases in spite of both being an ANA Flying Miles Members. Hence What is the uet of these ANA Miles Club (AMC) Membership? Remains an EYE-WASH................................."

Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient. Crew was tirelessly courteous and respectful. The entertainment system had a good selection, but I've seen better. The food and drink service was excellent. Seats had charging jackass for phones. I'd fly with them again"

Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."

Pros: "All the service was good."

Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."

Cons: "Airport problems turned it into a very long flight. We circled around Narita for hours"

Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful, I was having a sore throats and asked for a candy if possible, the crew answered immediately yes and came back with throat candies that I exactly wished for."
Cons: "The flight was having pretty bad turbulence but there was no explanation from the pilot or anything. Also I also took the same flight on my way to Mexico from Tokyo about 10 days ago but there was better food and beverage sevice."

Pros: "Food was served with metal utensils."

Pros: "Incredible service"

Pros: "The problem is not that I missed the flight, as I am currently in my way to my destination. The issue was the poor support, I mean is ok I know I didn't make it, but I don't want to hwar what I already know, tell me what can be done... waited 7 hours for someone available... the phone at the counter is useless"
Cons: "What about next time you put more instructions on the counter so that we don't waste hours trying to find a way to contact you..."

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye.

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The food quality was slightly lower than that on the outboud flight. I ordered Hindu Meal."

Cons: "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."

Pros: "On time, comfort, good food, good deal"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Japanese quality is good quality"

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

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

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

Pros: "The crew was excellent. The seat was reasonably comfortable. Boarding process was very orderly and smooth."

Pros: "much better than average food"
Cons: "shorter length flight but maybe little can be done,"

Pros: "wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle."
Cons: "17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided. Though I booked it from a third party I belive QA is at least responsible for making sure that the vendors let the user know that there will be NO accommodation provided. This information is also not readily accessible when searching online."

Pros: "courteous service and a clean modern airplane"
Cons: "The sound system was inadequate on the TV and the headsets were uncomfortable. The queue at the check-in needs to be better controlled, it was a bit chaotic."

Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

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: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."

Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"

Cons: "As above"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."
Cons: "No complaints."

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: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."

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: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."

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: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "Very kind & friendly crew. Boarding was smooth & flight was comfortable. Food was good considering it's airline food."

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"

Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

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: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."

Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price. Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."

Pros: "Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Gate security at Doha was too disorganized - could have let passengers know put everything in bag instead of at last minute having to put wallet, passport, etc in open bin and be afraid it would get stolen or misplaced."

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

Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"

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: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding with Nigerians is always difficult"

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"

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Costumer service"

Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"

Cons: "A 15 hour noisy flight. Careless mothers and their screaming kids. No Manors on telling them to be quiet or stop screaming. They played with their kids in an awfully loud sound."

Cons: "Me"

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"

Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"

Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Pros: "The food was great. Don't be scared of giving vegetarians dairy though unless they specify vegan."

Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"

Pros: "Food, Legspace and services"
Cons: "Crew wasnt tht helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have traveled extensively but I have never seen a staff more rude than Emirates. I had a connecting flight at Dubai Airport and there was 8 hours waiting time. At the gate I was connecting for Islamabad, there was not a single seating arrangement. When I complained about it to emirates desk, the staff was extremely rude. Such arrogance and an attitude that you instantly abhor. In my opinion, these Emirates people are most racist people in the world. The way they treat passengers from developing countries is vile. Even onboard, they treat 'white' passengers much differently than they would for a brown skin. I would never fly Emirates again. I plan to write against them in some leading newspaper for being racist. If people like us stay quiet and injustice and humiliating attitude they have against us, we will continue to suffer. I can pay a higher price for any other airline but I decline to ever fly with Emirates at the expense of my dignity."

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"

Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."

Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."

Cons: "Boarding announcements weren’t clear and boarding was not separated by zone."

Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."

Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"

Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was horrible and cabin crew was not nice or friendly."

Pros: "Great legroom good food and lots of entertainment. The little comfort packs they give you are awesome as well!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "I had a 14 hours layover in Dubai. I had called Emirates before booking this flight and they said they would issue a hotel and meals vouchers. Due to a mistake by an Emirates agents who was processing the visa application in Dubai, it was denied and an immigration head officer came and appologized to me and spoke to her. Emirates did not compensate me at all. They could have granted Emirates lounge access, meals, or simply book me a room at the airport hotel. I ended up sleeping for 14 hours on a chair due to their employee's fault"

Pros: "The flight crew we're fine and helpful if you needed something."
Cons: "The TV for my seat would cut out when the person in front of me reclined. The charging plug also didn't work."

Pros: "First time flying Emirates. Friendly and attentive staff. Flew on schedule. Comfortable seats. Nice food and clean restrooms."

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Cons: "There was no vegetarian food."

Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."
Cons: "Emirates' economy cabin is extremely crowded. The food is mediocre even for airplane food."

Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."

Pros: "Everything was very good"

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"

Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."

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: "A380"
Cons: "Cabin service"

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"

Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Pros: "Food portions and selections were great. We got slippers and eye masks for a ten hour red eye flight."
Cons: "Prices have gone up"

Pros: "All was great."
Cons: "The airline has so many people from far away places waiting too long for their next connections"

Pros: "great food, nice staff, and on time"

Pros: "The plane was late for operational reasons - the team made efforts to make the delay as short as possible."
Cons: "The plane is really old - I could not adjust the air flow above my seat since it was broken."

Pros: "The flight from Dubai landed late in Istanbul. TK had someone there to escort the business class passengers through security to make sure we made our connection."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight to NY from IST was a bit too cold."

Pros: "Food and plane"
Cons: "IST transit"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was rude"

Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"

Pros: "The seat is comfortable"

Cons: "Leg room Food choices"

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: "It was a very nice flight."
Cons: "Everything was good."

Cons: "Rude crew.. i am elite plus ..i can only imagine how they treat people with no status"

Pros: "Love flying Turkish, usually they’re very welcoming on the plane and flight attendants are friendly. Seats convert into a lay flat bed which is comfortable. i would say that the appetizers are usually excellent but the main dishes fall a bit behind. Amenity kit is pretty good."
Cons: "Boarding is a problem and I expect it’s a problem everyday. One has to go through many additional checks to board a NY bound flight which is understood but the gates can’t sccomod a full 777 flight. It gets hot really fast, definitely what you don’t need before a long flight. Group boarding is enforced but people will still try to wiggle into the priority boarding line. On another note I have had a similar flight on the A330 and the boarding process was smooth (organized)."

Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."

Pros: "New airplane good service good flight attendant depart on time"

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

Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management"

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

Cons: "The food was a bit tastless"

Pros: "All is fine and the crew is wonderful."
Cons: "The breakfast meal upon arrival to Houston was partially frozen. I guess this must have been a human mistake."

Cons: "Too hot inside the plane. The back of my t-shirt was wet from sweat."

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

Pros: "I"
Cons: "Many liked the food. It just wasn't to my taste!"

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."

Pros: "Due to the breakdown in diplomatic relations between the United States and Turkey, we were not able to secure non-immigrant visas to enter Turkey, so we had to cancel our plans to Istanbul. It is a bit of a comfort to note that Turkish Airlines seems likely to refund us the price of our tickets. I appreciate it, because I don't think they are legally obligated, though it is the ethical thing to do."
Cons: "However, even getting our money back on the airline tickets won't reverse the disappointment of going through all of the effort and coordination to plan the trip. I intended to take my nephew to Istanbul, a city I've never been to and always pined to visit, and had encouraged a local friend whose son, close in age to my nephew, is studying music in Istanbul at this time. My nephew is studying in Valencia, and we thought it would be a really fun and memorable experience for them to meet, and maybe they would have decided to do some traveling together in the future or my friend's son could have visited my nephew in Valencia at some point this school year. All these plans went down the drain when we couldn't get visas. We are having to content ourselves with southern Spain instead."

Pros: "Being able to stretch out and get some real rest makes a huge difference for me when trying to cope with time zone change west coast to Europe. Overall great experience"

Pros: "Good seat comfort, good food, good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat changed from aisle to middle without my knowlefge. Insufficient time between flights"

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."

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"

Pros: "I love getting a drink and sandwich on a one-hour flight!"

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"

Pros: "I normally always like flying with TK - this was a clear exception. Unfortunately what normally feels rather enjoyable was today some 18 hours of suffering."
Cons: "My headphone - outlet did not work - had to hold the connector manually the whole flight tonhear something of the movie. But the boarding procedure was far worse - it took almost 1 hour standing up due to new rules of technical equipment and all bags having to be opened. I understand safety goes above all - but off you know You have this time consuming process - do it in an area where people can have a seat while waiting!"

Pros: "The long flight didn't even feel like one. The entire staff was very polite and also very professional."
Cons: "The service, the food, the flight quietness and it wasn't any major turbulence plus the pilot executed the smoothest landing ;)"

Pros: "As always, great entertainment system. Constantly updating and improving."
Cons: "For some reason, I didn't get the option to choose a meal type at check-in, as I sometimes have in the past. Seeing as it's Passover, and I don't eat meat, I wasn't really able to eat much from the default meal I was given."

Pros: "The food was the best I've had on an airplane and the in flight entertainment had an enormous selection. Flight staff and their service were amazing. I've flown all over and have never taken Turkish Airlines before. Now I don't want to fly with anyone else."
Cons: "seats were a little cramped for a 12hr flight, but I'm not a short guy. I guess it pays to go business class."

Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."

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: "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: "excellent food, service"

Pros: "Everything was appreciated"

Cons: "They switched the gate without telling anyone"

Cons: "time was to long between planes"

Pros: "Punctuality"

Pros: "All"

Pros: "I loved being able to stay in Istanbul for a while. We had a great time during the layover, and the flight was incredible. The entertainment was top notch, and the food was as well. They had delicious olives and cheese on most meals, and the hot food had great use of tomatoes and umami to add taste to the meals. It has been a great experience traveling on Turkish Airlines, and I would suggest it for everyone."
Cons: "Leg room for the seats were a little tight."

Pros: "La tripulación muy amable!!"

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "Nos trataron con mucha seguridad de higiene y nos sentimos muy seguras de viajar con ustedes muchas gracias"

When I came to Mexico, the flying from Minneapolis - Houston was good Delta keep everyone social distance. The flight from Houston to Mexico City was AeroMexico was completely full NO SOCIALY DISTANCE TERRIBLE EXAMPLE !"

Pros: "Helpful"

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "Was a little bit hot"

Pros: "Very professional crew and in a good mood."
Cons: "The boardimg in Mexico City is always so messy. I think airlines should send back passengers that pretend it is their boarding time when it is not. So many people end up boarding before they should making a mess at the boardimg gate."

Cons: "The cramped airplane. The inept service crew… One of the worst I've had on board in a very long time"

Cons: "I never received anything about my booking. I went the airport Wednesday morning not knowing if I’d actually fly out. I only had on my Kayak app a trip itinerary. Thankfully I did. In Atlanta I added my Skymiles # to my trip. Upon arrival in Mexico I rec’d a push from Delta about my trip with my Record Locator. Flying home was to depart at 8am. When I rec’d my boarding pass it stated 8:55am. While waiting at my gate Delta sent me a text at 7:30am that my flight would be leaving at 8am. That confused me. Needless to say I was suppose to arrive CVG at 3:49pm, but instead was booked on a flight departing Atlanta at 4:30pm. Plans at home had to changed for Friday evening as I was not arriving at mid-afternoon. Needless to say I’ll probably not book thru Kayak anymore."

I was told this wasn’t an international flight and therefore no free alcohol. Aero Mexico flight to Mexico City had much better food, free alcohol and more attentive service personnel. Also delays because of equipment problems."

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."

Pros: "We were delayed one hour in Mexico city but when we were in flight the crew definetly made up for it. The crew served us a great meal with drinks of choice as quick as possible followed by a hot cup of coffee cookies and kept coming around to check if we needed any thing els. Way to turn things around Delta."
