Airline reviews

Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."

Pros: "Boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row, and by the time the food came around, 2 of the 3 entree options were unavailable. We had to have fish or not get an entree at all."

Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"

Pros: "Yes crew was very polite and seat were comfortable. Roomy enough to stretch leg for height of people up to 5'7"
Cons: "overall everything was good. Toilet could have been little roomier. little cranked up. People with overweight would have tough time.."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."

Cons: "Snacks and drinks could be betteri"

Cons: "Did not make this flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"

Cons: "Same no in flight wifi"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

Pros: "The flight went well, from boarding to landing."
Cons: "We were informed at origination that we would be put up in a hotel in Doha. Online and also at check in desk. When we arrived in Doha we were directed to a desk for hotel booking. After waiting inline 45 minutes we were told we don't get a hotel with reduced economy fare."

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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

Pros: "Like your six seats in a business class row compared to Emirates, Air India and very awkward seats of Etihad. Qatar business class staff also tad better than others."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."

Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."

Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and price of ticket"

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Cons: "This was my first time with Turkish airline , the airbus from Chicago to İstanbul was quite old and seats were not comfortable while the plan form İstanbul to Islamabad was perfect . Thank you Turkish airline"

Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"

Cons: "Hotel for passengers"

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Food was better than flight out of NY. Very tasty. Terrific crew."
Cons: "Seat was a bit cramped but this was a coach seat so my expectations were not high. Aircraft was smaller than first flight so seats were also smaller."

Pros: "The planets and stars we're aligned to provide an optimal trip. Price was a huge determinant for me...$800 RT Houston to Delhi just can't be beat. And, their arrival time into Delhi is so early (5: 20 am) that customs and immigration is a breeze."
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "The stewardess actually I insisted that I do NOT recline my chair during the flight. The chairs are already too small. The person behind me didn’t have any room so I had to place it in the upright position. They ran out of chicken on both flights too"

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"

Cons: "Long layover overnight when most of the airport is closed and minimal space to snooze."

Cons: "Air in the cabin to dry"

Pros: "Everything went perfect."

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."

Cons: "Didn't get to travel. Will never fly Turkish Airlines again."

Cons: "Turkish airlines should have accommodated the delayed flights by waiting for the passengers to make it to the gates especially if the delay was 3 minutes to catch the next flight. Then business transfer desk just gave the run around and finally rebooked me to Dubai instead of Abu Dhabi with a five hour delay"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Pros: "Awesome"

Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Movies, I had leg room. Nice friendly staff .."
Cons: "Internet would not work"

Pros: "Travel on THY within Turkey and between countries. Service excellent, food is great, amenities abound. Always travel THY when I can."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike! My favorite airline."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Landing!"
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Cons: "the kosher food was poor"

Pros: "Turkish Air has some of the best flight attendants in the business. The food is essentially gourmet (hot wrap, in this case), and the pilots are highly skilled."
Cons: "This is not a Turkish Airlines issue, per se, but an airport problem. Ataturk is very spread out and there are far more planes than gates. More often than not, the plane parks way out in the back 40, and shuttle buses take you to a processing point. If you have less than a 2 Hr layover, and you're switching between Domestic and International flights, you will need to walk at top speeds, or run. Passport Control and multiple security checkpoints could easily cause you to miss your flight."

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Cons: "I'm very upset with the airline ... I filed a claim money back through the policy ... I do not presented to outbound flight because I had lost my passport ... However, buy another ticket of plane in the same airline and when I wanted to take my return ticket was told it was canceled and I had to buy another ticket plane ... very bad."

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Pros: "Everything was good except the food wasn't good"
Cons: "The food wasn't good"

Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

Cons: "No gate number on boarding pass from instambul to tirana. Very confusing ."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "entertainment is poor no TV on the back seat only on top 1 film is shown for all."

Pros: "The food was very good. The movie selection was outstanding"

Cons: "My bag was lot on my way to Europe and was delivered 3 days later. My claim for the expenses was not processed yet. My same bag was lost when I arrived to Abu Dhabi. It's been one week and I didn't hear about it"

Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"

Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to plane"

Cons: "flight left about 11 pm, after dinner service was over the crew never offered water/juice at all until breakfast was served, hard to stay hydrated!!!!!!!"

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, food was great and there was plenty of entertainment during the flight."
Cons: "I couldn't accumulate my miles."

Pros: "Flowers in the bathroom! WOW! Hot rolls with meals! Wide variety of choices in online movies. Somehow my name was dropped from the Vegetarian Meal list. (It was there DEL to Istanbul, but not Istanbul to MIA). So, the chief made a grilled veggie plate for me that was excellent. Crew was very polite and handled the situation in a friendly & professional manner."
Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat. Due to lower back & hip problems I need to get up and stretch. Turkish Airlines changed my seat reservation to a middle seat. The woman next to me was rather large, took up a lot of real estate (took up her seat and overflowed onto mine) and was unfriendly. It was impossible for me to get up, or to stretch. I was unable to return to work today due to sciatica problems related to flight seating. (I checked with the flight drew. The plane was full. There were no aisle seats available even if I could afford to upgrade to another class.)"

Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Seat back entertainment systems were quite good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. Meal was OK, not great."

Pros: "Good crew attention and communication, good entertainment choices, decent comfort for a 175 cm person"
Cons: "Each flight was a little late (as usual, though, who knows why?)"

Cons: "The flight attendants found it difficult to say "welcome" when boarding and they careless about flight connections upon arrival at Istanbul. Also, flying business class or first class with this airline does not command any special treatment with the exception of priority boarding."

Pros: "Food, on board crew, very good service."

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "It was really nice and comfortable trip"

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats aren’t comfortable and way too small."

Pros: "Professionalisms of Crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Aircraft"

Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Business class is very basic. Flatbed seats, but they are side by side, like economy. So if you have a window or center seat, you have to climb over someone to get out to use the bathroom. Very annoying, especially for the person being climbed over."

Pros: "The flights were very good, friendly and professional. Planes were clean and seems to be well maintained for the passengers"
Cons: "Only issue I had was a 5 hour layover in Cairo, not long enough to explore so just sitting in the airport, and there is no wifi available in the airport, even at Starbucks nothing. Apparently an airport rule, but it sucks with a long layover."

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Crew did their job perfectly. Not particularly warm and friendly, but they are paid to be attentive, not my friend, so I can't complain! Flight was smooth, and quick, meal was pretty good."
Cons: "Not charger ports, or entertainment of any kind."

Pros: "The best trip in everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Your company canceled the tickets from Kenya to cairo"

Cons: "The plane was really old, no personal entertainment system for a 5 and a half hour flight is unacceptable. Seats very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Egypt Air provided lounge access for only 3 hours of a 7 hour layover"

Cons: "Take off on time. Seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "Nice experience with EgyptAir. we were a group of six and satisfied with airplane, food and crew."
Cons: "I cant think of anything right now."

Cons: "Actually I didn’t fly as I didn’t receive the confirmation email or the ticket and I had to call vayama who informed me that they don’t have any records for my booking although my credit card was authorized for the amount !! I had to do another booking fire test with the airlines due to limited time before departure!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Careless"

Pros: "People"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."

Cons: "i would rate boaring less than poor if applicable."

Pros: "Tha Flight was on time no delay The Crew are friendly in over all I have no problem"

Pros: "The flight was on time without any delay. The crew was good and helpful. Taking off and landing were good. Checking online was easy."
Cons: "Although I made check in online but the employees responsible for drop off luggage were not on the desk , so I had to stand for long time because there were only 2 descks working. Seat leg space is so narrow."

Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."

Pros: "Crew was super nice and helpful. Flight schedule was on time."

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "It took over an hour to check-in. People were pushing in because it was not well marked and nobody directing the people. It was terrible. The plane has very old seats, and no entertainment screen on seats, still the old monitors hanging from the roof."

Pros: "Big Jet, Clean and very good service."

Pros: "Food was good, crew were pretty nice. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "It took me over 2 hours to board because the counter has never seen a green card extension. I also had a dog that was connecting with me on Emirates, they couldn't figure out the price for the dog at all. We started with $600 and went down to $188 which I was told on the phone. People working at check in should be way more knowledgeable of other things than just regular paper work and not giving travelers attitude because"

Pros: "Good service in flight. Better food than most"
Cons: "Airport handling"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"

Cons: "My daughter was traveling from Antalya to Cairo via Istanbul, her bag was missed in Cairo airport, we checked the system and we found that the bag was loaded from Antalya airport. She was in honeymoon trip and has many valuable items in her bag."
