And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row.

Pros: "First Airline to harass me about the weight on my bag -- small carry on -- had to check kill me on time. The seats have no legroom -- my back is killing me. The internet could not take my money -- so I could not get'out crucial emails -- it seems like the service was more interested in collecting my email addresses and password -- instead to simply directing me to the payment method -- waste of time."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No room"
Pros: "Baku airport stunning. Better dessert. Helpful crew. Perfectly on time."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"
Pros: "This had to have been the best flight I ever had the attendents cater to you every need"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Very good fantastic business class seats awesome legroom And again great service"
Cons: "Crew was confused and didn't work well, food horrible and they lost my luggage . Bad customer service after lost luggage from call center. Rude customer service representative and inaccurate information many times. Very frustrating"
Cons: "AC was not working while we were in the ground"
Cons: "Forced me to take beed as Chicken wasnt available. Very reluctant to arrange for an alternative option, and this is after they were already running behind on serving dinner."
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Pros: "The flight itself wasn't bad, we got a meal on each flight and the crew was charming."
Cons: "I had a trip with one connection, from Tel Aviv to Milan. The flight from Tel Aviv was delayed, which coused the connection flight to be delayed. Also, and most importantly, they've left my luggage in Istanbul (where the connection was from), so that I was left with no proper clothes/essentials for four (!) days (and it was colder than expected in Italy)."
Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight. Check-in process was smooth, the airline company was sensitive to departure time. Highly recommended."
Pros: "Excellent carrier, modern planes and good food on board Also on european flight a proper meal and inflight entertainment"
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."
Cons: "There is nothing I've didn't like"
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "Crew was excellent: very attentive and polite. The food was actually good (and free), as were the beverages. The movie selection was much better than average, as well."
Cons: "Many passengers were extremely high-maintenance, but that's not necessarily the airline's fault."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Pros: "The crew is excellent"
Cons: "The seats area are too small my knees hurt as they hit just the edge of the food tray, impossible flight with the seat other than straight as you will be disturbing a lot the other passengers, although unfortunately some people do not care about the confort of the others"
Pros: "I liked the food and the vegetarian options. Also the the movies were updated and it had a lot to choose from"
