It was great experience. .
I liked that flight attendants always make sure people have masks on and properly covering their mouths and noses. I dislike that when the plane lands people are not maintaining social distancing in the aisle. Attendants should make a way to ask people out of their seats systematically.
Pros: "Everything was excellent even the landing was as smooth as butter"
Cons: "A free upgrade to a business class seat :("
Pros: "On time, check in staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "It's has become useless to order a special meal on THY, it is never there Economy seat space is extremely tight"
Pros: "Excellent service for affordable price"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Great food. Great seats. Great stuff. Great plane and the landing did not feel st all! Definitely am happy!"
Pros: "Everything went well"
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 smooth trip"
Cons: "Boarding a bus to be taken to the plane It’s probably not unusual in Turkey but that was a first for me In all fairness it was a high anxiety moment for me with all the unknowns I was facing but I appreciate Turkish Air nonetheless"
Pros: "Sweet crew members"
Pros: "This flight was great. It was a short flight but food was still served. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was late and no announcement came from anyone."
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."
Cons: "The AC wasn’t turned on for 2 hours of passengers being on the plane and it was easily 100 degrees inside. Everyone was hot and miserable. The seats were also extremely close together. I have never been so uncomfortable on a long haul flight."

Pros: "I liked that I had knee space which made he more comfortable. There was a lot great movie options. The food was good."
Cons: "The air in the plane was smell."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."

Cons: "I felt very cramped in my seat and it was hard to not slide out or to the side."
Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "we made it safe everyone was nice things went smoothly"
Cons: "the 40 min delay added and extra half day to the trip // everything else was fine // i don't like this form either, should be simpler... you make it seem like you care for me, but then I'm just a piece on a conveyor belt"
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."
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: "Love how the crew always take care of you and are very nice."
Cons: "Seats can be a bit better"
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."

Cons: "They was late for boarding The food is bad It's was my bad experience this travel"
Pros: "Turkish tea."
Cons: "The food was not good"
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: "Operativity, cleaning, food,"
Cons: "Flight canceled"
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: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Cons: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Very friendly service. Ground staff and excellent cabin crew. Excellent onboard entertainment. Good quality wines and multiple selections."
Cons: "On Board food offerings, seats are a little tight"
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: "Turkish was the only airline I've flown that actually did not give the impression of nickle and diming but really made clear and concerted and well executed efforts to exceed expectations on all fronts. A huge accomplishment. They really put most of their competitors to shame."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Cons: "Food took up too much tray space and crew did not clear trays promptly. Messages from pilot were inaudible. We went through more than four security checks and we were only transferring planes in Istanbul. Terminal was short on places to sit and had excessive duty free shopping. Walks in terminal went on for miles. With the flight gate only posted 35 minutes ahead of departure, this was a problem."
Cons: "Thessaloniki airport needs an upgrade badly"
The flight was packed. My entertainment screen was it working properly making it a very long trip. In fact, many screens were not working and resetting them did not work. They were old and needed replacing or at the least recalibrated. An aggressive and abusive passenger who refused to follow crew directions held up the flight, with ground crew having to intervene. Surprisingly she was not removed. Her behavior did not improve. Neither crew nor passengers should have had to put up with her risky behavior. It wil not use this airline again.
The overall experience was okay
The best opportunity you will clear us immigration at Abu Dhabi
Pros: "Great flight....enjoyed it thoroughly....."
Cons: "The Seats were really old and no new movies"
Pros: "The seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was cold and and very matter of fact. The food was very so-so. The food items have to be purchased other the food trays served unlike Turkish Airlines and Kuwaiti Airlines."
Pros: "My seat was dripping from the top and I got my shirt wet while I dozed off!! The cabin crew gave a bundle of tissue saying, "pls help yourself""
Cons: "The flight condition should have been better and the Etihad should learn how to help guests reach their destinations on time"
Pros: "Yes crew was very good"
Cons: "To give small size water bottles after having meals and also to add new movies."
Cons: "I asked for dental kit but they did not give me any."
Pros: "The staff were so helpful and friendly. Such a lovely bunch"
Cons: "Abysmal experience on our return flight! # Abu Dhabi Airport is so outdated and an embarassment compared to the other Regional Airports # Boarding procedure still shambolic # A330 seems old and uncomfortable - even though it is a new plane # Cabin Crew so unfriendly and sour # Toilets again disgusting within 30 minutes after taking off # Food still shockingly disgusting # Onboard entertainment still inferior to Emirates/Qatar/etc."
Pros: "This time the service was ok"
Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"
Cons: "Three of is were travelling and they offered food only l to two of us..i think they thought my three year old doesn't need food..and on my flight to Kochi the crew was so mean.."

Pros: "The hospitality and punctuality very co op cabin crew"
Pros: "The food was awesome. The staff was friendly and courteous. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Was not allowed to board flight, had to purchase a second d ticket, told no seats available until Sept 17 which was a lie, after an additional charge of $750.10. Could not reach customer service. Ended up buying a ticket with another airline. Would like some reimbursement in this."

Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."
Cons: "This plane was quite noisy. Noise cancelling earphones helped but it was noticeably different to the next flight with air Berlin. That cabin was significantly quieter."
Cons: "Lost baggage at LA after deboarding no body guide from where to collect baggage where to go all mismanaged"
Pros: "Comfort on such a long flight was much better than other airlines. Food was great"
Pros: "Lived up to the usual Etihad high standards. Efficiency, comfort, service and value for money"

Cons: "When I complained about my lost luggage they asked me to file a complain at hometown which would be USA, but after a little explanation they filed a lost luggage complain."
Cons: "In the waiting area there was a smoking cabin nearby. It wasn't sealed properly and you could smell the smoke all around the gates. It causes me to cough. It would be nice if the room had 2 doors or else was located down a corridor away from the gates."
Pros: "What I liked? 1. Flight was early! 2. Customs and Immigrations were completed at Abu Dhabi, so no waiting in long lines at Los Angeles 3. Good customer service in flight"
Cons: "No wheelchair assistance at Los Angeles airport :("
Pros: "The service. The crew got things done effortlessly."
Pros: "CREW SERVICE TIMELY NATURE OF FLIGHTS"
Cons: "THE LEG SPACE 1 OF THE MEALS"
Pros: "comfrt. electrical support. got all our luggage."
Pros: "Service was efficient though the there were not that many movies available & after I realized that my television screen would not stay up because I was sitting in front of the exit door, I tried listening to the music but my head set was broken too! The stewards were trying to finish picking up the snack & clean up so there was less than an hour left I decided not to bother them further."
Cons: "As far as the snack that was served,it was a dry roll with little bit of cheese in it . My daughter & I both did not take an other bite and put the rest of it back in the bag!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They need better food"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area. The crew repeatedly asked them to sit and they would sometimes ignore then outright and other times sit for a short while only to get up once again. For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Pros: "All ok."
Cons: "Seats seem pretty short. Only half my leg fits on them and I am not a tall person."
Cons: "This ar line has no absolute respect for its people. It seems because it is a fight going to India, which apparently it is not an important country they can do anything. The worst gate (I do not know if this is the air line choice or not), there was no line to boarding, there was not enough seat at the gate and one of the people at the gate was insisting that travelers should sit. The crew was rude to the Indian people, however they themselves were not acting properly. The bus came to get the people from the gate to the plane in Abu Dabi was really bad."
Pros: "Perhaps since it is in the shadow of Emirates, Etihad has been neglected. It is a truly outstanding airline."
Cons: "No frequent flyer sharing with Delta, unlike its partner Alitalia."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Cons: "Not attending to call button and not providing coffee or tea when I needed"
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
Cons: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
Flight was comfortable Thanks
Cons: "Poor communication"
Pros: "We got scammed out of the tickets from Justfly.com and Ethiopian Airlines turned us away without looking at our tickets. I am upset.

Pros: "The food, air crew respectful and dedicated to duty"
Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"
Pros: "seat not comfortable"

Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "It was a very short flight"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Slept most of the flight. Windows were cool (tint control)"
Cons: "Food was sub par. Leg room limited."
Cons: "Your cheapo ripoff insurance wouldn't pay when I had to cancel due to terrorism threats in and around Ouagadougou. Is there ever a better reason to cancel a flight?!"
Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"

Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."
Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."

Cons: "stoping in irland only"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
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."

Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
