Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."

Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."

One woman didn't even look at me, she was just on her phone playing a game. Every step of the process they asked me how I could have missed the connection....it landed 20 min before the next one took off!!!"

One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"

Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "Surprised at the quality of food on an airplane"

Pros: "The saving grace for the trip was my segment of flight from Istanbul to Antalya. Excellent seating, service and overall experience. Thank you."
Cons: "The flight departed late from LAX thus making me miss my connecting flight to Antalya. It was a long and tiring experiencing for a 74 year old women. Seats on the airplane were so small I could barely get in an out of them. No one to direct me at the gate in Istanbul and explain where I needed to go. Food very ordinary compared to other flights I've taken with Turkish airlines. Thought I was on a different airline flying from Istanbul to Antalya. That segment was excellent."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"

Pros: "Despite the computer regulations the THY handled it smoothly in Istanbul. In Atlanta we had to wait at least half an hour to get them back. Service was good, till the end of the flight restrooms were clean. Besides they offer 2-luggage policy. I try to use them as much as I can. Thanks THY"

Cons: "Leaving the aircraft by stairs to the runway"

Pros: "Was surprised to get a full meal on such a short flight. Very good food."
Cons: "Pretty average flying experience. The plane looked older, but that's nothing unusual"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"

Cons: "the fact that in my flight from turkey back to isreal the boarding guy added in hand written something that look like curse i got pic.... and was not nice ... dont know if it was because of the late time or hes mind was disturbed ... you dont act like this ... i do not know what he add but i dont think its a bless"

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Lack of leg room; lack of air flow during entire flight and seats could adjust their own."

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: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Pros: "This was our first time with Turkish Airlines. I love that an inexpensive flight gave such wonderful service. My favorite thing is that they treat children well. We will definitely use again."

The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "Boarding of all economy passengers was done on first come and stand in line, first served basis with no zone separation. This caused aisle congestion.

Cons: "I wasn't aware beforehand that I could request a dairy free meal."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Great service, great crew! If available, will choose Lufthansa for my next flight! Friendly crew, smooth flying, great entertainment choices."

Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."

Pros: "The temperature was moderate, not as cold as ususl. Stewards were very nice."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "Poor cabin crew behavior. Gate agent kind of reprimanded passengers to carry only one bag to cabin almost shouting at people in Frankfurt."

Pros: "Heathrow had a lot to offer between flights. Our gate was in the middle of everything."
Cons: "We were late boarding, which left very little time to connect with my next flight in Frankfurt."

Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."
Cons: "The check in process was incredibly inefficient. I have never had to wait so long to check in my bags. The attendants were chatting and laughing while not helping customers and customers were unfairly taken from the middle of the line to jump the queue."

Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, booked seat was good."
Cons: "I travel very light, was finishing up a 14 day trip around the world, couldn’t check-in online. Tried a number of options. When arriving at airport - my checked bag was a total of 12kg, but was told if I planned to bring it home with me that I had to pay $100 bag fee. I realize that airlines charge bag fees - however, I was unaware in advance, booking from Lhr to FLL with layover in Oslo."

Pros: "great crew great seats great entertainment great pilots great food and the greatest airline in the world"
Cons: "free wifi"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Over all good means.........., All well nothing to my dislike"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"

Pros: "Not much - inflated BA fare for mediocre offering; definitely not business class when compared to proper premium airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Poor food. Disorganized boarding more soon to low cost budget carriers. Which is what BA competes against now, albeit for premium prices."

Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."

Pros: "This was a connecting flight from London originating from SFO. There were delays after boarding so we departed later. But we survived."

Pros: "The quality of the plane was good and the movies were good. Also the blanket and pillow was nice."
Cons: "I was really cramped and couldn’t recline because the guy behind me was too tall and it amashes his legs, so I had to be uncomfortable for the entire flight."

Cons: "They kicked me off the flight and I missed my husbands performance"

Pros: "Very friendly crew members."
Cons: "Have to pay for all meals and beverages."

Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"

Pros: "The power plug points in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Rude staff and service. Limited service for food. if you compare British Airways with other European airlines like SAS, Swiss, and Lufthansa; British has fallen far behind in quality and service."

Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Cons: "O"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."

Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"

Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."

Cons: "Didn't know catering was on sale"

Pros: "personal movies on a long flight"
Cons: "Guy in front reclining his chair. Very difficult to eat your meal when this happens."

Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Cons: "Gluten Free meals that I ordered were not available, which is a major problem! Boarding took extra long as Crew wasn't ready yet, flight was an hour late in arriving, making it an exhausting 11.5 hr ordeal. Main issue: raging male passenger who screamed at Crew and other passengers for several hours and in effect held us in fear as very young and entirely female crew had trouble diffusing his anger. Seriously thought we were going to have to make a stop to get this guy removed from the plane. What was he so aggressive about? Not having a cradle for his baby. There were many other passengers w infants and he accosted the crew and the couple that did have the bassinet aggressively over and over again. Horrible."

Pros: "Liked the dinner. Loved the dessert (chocolate cake )"
Cons: "Didnt like the breakfast. Omelette eggs too greasy aswell as the rest of food. Coffee wasnt good either"

Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "It took over an hour after clearing customs for my bag to arrive. Overall, I was in the airport 1.5 hrs before it arrived."

Pros: "For the back of the bus, the seat was still pretty comfortable and I did manage to sleep. Boarding was easy, The entertainment seemed great, thought I fell asleep"
Cons: "I didnt' manage to get a good seat. I sat in the middle row, last row of the plane. : ) Also, i must have fallen asleep, but I was never offered even a cup of water."

Pros: "It was a short trip and the crew was good about making it as quick as possible (for boarding, debriefing, etc)."
Cons: "It was a short trip but they didn't have any sort of drink service. No entertainment either but that's expected for an hour long flight."

Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"

Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "Flights were on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."

Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
