Pros: "Service, atmosphere"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
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."

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"

Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."
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?"
Pros: "Every thing was ok.but not excellent"
Cons: "Specially for getting down from the plane we had to use stairs that is not good specially for senior citizens."
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: "Food was decent."
Cons: "Super cramped plane, and they managed to lose my luggage in Dubai. Thanks for that!"
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."
Cons: "The Emirates business lounge in Dubai is terrible, overcrowded, too big, food passable, very little service."
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."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "nothing, all was perfect"
Pros: "Can't really remember."
Cons: "Flight time respect. Earlier flights. Charging system for phone or comuperr and if there was internet availability in flight."
Pros: "Person kicked seat due to reclining and crew did NOTHING to stop. Turkish sold seat as extended comfort, but then said at the gate that they don’t have such seats!!"
Cons: "Fly another airline"
Pros: "Every thing amazing"
Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The air conditioner was on full blast for a trip to Istanbul, Turkey from NYC. It was very uncomfortable and I could not get any sleep because I was freezing the whole way. Seriously, two sweaters and a blanket did not help. My hands were so cold I the entire time."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Cons: "The lack of communication with the employee who had my boarding pass and did not provide the wheel chair. I waited in an area waiting, he moved to another area without letting me know. Finally I nearly made it to the gate, on the bus and on the plane. It did not give me the chance to relax at the lounge as I paid for a business class ticket. I felt not being taken care of properly and as expected."
Cons: "they lost one pc of luggage which is not good but otherwise we were hasppy"
Cons: "AIR CONDITIONING WAS NOT SUFFICIENT TO COOL THE CABIN ."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight because of flight boarding delay on the original destination. The airline did not accommodate my non-English speaking parents for overnight."
Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"
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."
Pros: "Facilities are really nice"
Cons: "I only got one boarding pass at the check in."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "long boarding"
Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"
Pros: "Safety instructions with zach king were nice! The crew was helpful."
Cons: "My screen didnt work. They reset it a few times, then it began working.. after a while i started playing a game and the screen got stuck! There was no one in the seat next to me so i thought I'd use that screen.. but then that one got stuck too. Remained stuck for the rest of the flight... The USB cable for charging didnt work. And entertainment options were very limited too."
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."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines did not transfer my bag. I am still waiting to find out if it has been routed to MLX."
Pros: "Food and service were fine, plenty of movie choices on the screen, nice goody bag with slippers, ear plugs, eye mask, etc . . ."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines website is the worst I've ever used. Embarrassingly bad, really."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."
Cons: "Flight attendants are not very nice. Food got much worse compare to previous years Boarding was very long because of the crazy check"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"
Pros: "best in all regards"
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: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"
Pros: "Crew was great, movie selections were good."
Cons: "No warning or info when we hit a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "I loved the bendable headrests. Olives and cheeses are different airplane food and really nice. Plentiful blankets and pillows."
Cons: "They didn't have any child-sized headphones available for my daughter."
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: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I had two short flights with Turkish Airlines and on both flights I received good meals and entertainment. Young children in the seats around mine received shrink wrapped comic books and stuffed animals. Headphones were provided to those who needed them. I definitely did not expect such good treatment on such short flights. I really got the impression that they are trying hard to keep the quality of their services as high as possible. I really recommend these guys."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Boarding process was still chaos and unorganized, we left 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Entertainment system, food"
Cons: "Announcements illegible"
Pros: "Outstanding service, very attentive crew, careful attention to punctuality."
Cons: "no information on frequent flier program"
Pros: "Everything was great this was the greatest flight I took. I travel a lot. The service was 100 ten % perfect. Thanks to everyone for a great service."
Cons: "I don't think anyone could say they didn't like something about the flight or service."
Pros: "It met and exceeded some expectations. I guess part of it was having read so many reviews about other people's bags not making it. I am glad all my bags arrived in one piece"
Cons: "Wish there were better snack options, especially considering how long the flight was"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food was good."
Cons: "The wait time on the bus to the terminal."
Pros: "Good food, on time, great entertainment!"
Cons: "Seating room appears lower than average. Boarding somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above Very bad experience"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, employees,boarding ,food all stars for everything!!!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "I was seated next to someone who moved a lot when the slept and the handrail barrier was not enough to keep me safe from involuntary jabs. Also, the touch screen wasn't working properly but after a few trial and errors, I realized that I could use the remote as an alternative to the touch screen."
Pros: "The food!"
Cons: "We did a preselection for seating at the airline office at the Kempinski in Djibuti for our return flight back to US. Only to find that when boarding on both flights we had been re-assigned and not seated together. We were able to be seated together after boarding was completed."
Pros: "People, aircraft, everything, especially the Lounge"
Cons: "Except the fact that I can only buy a Gold card three times. Why?"
