Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Wearing a face vizor on top of the face mask is silly"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Cons: "The lounge is a bit far from the departure gate, so I waited with regular economy class travelers. It would have been nice to have had a closer dedicated area for business class."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "Excellent service on both flights. Truly a 5 star experience. Well done Qatar Airways."
Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Seat was sufficiently comfortable to get some rest and I was very ready to be done with the flight when the plane landed."
Cons: "Breakfast option - eggs and a sausage had much to be desired. Other meals were fine."

Cons: "The food during the flight from Manila to Doha was poor. Last year I flew from Doha to Singapore in January and the year before that from Doha to Colombo, the food on both of the latter flights was very good. The food during flight from ManilaManila to Doha was poor."
Cons: "The airline demaged both of my completely new suitcases. They both had TSA approved locks. One of the suitcses has a missing wheel, another one ripped zipper and missing lock and it was wraped in plastic. A few items were missing from that bag."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly throughout the 7-hour flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."

Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Pros: "All the crew"
Cons: "The airline services"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "We were packed like sardines, it was very uncomfortable. And, by the time they got to me, they were out of the fish I wanted for my meal."
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was a rude counter staff when we checked in in Singapore."
Cons: "asian vegetable meal was uninspired"
Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."
Pros: "Qatar airlines was awesome! Comfy seat, great headrest, lots of entertainment options and decent food all on a very short flight. Would definitely fly this airline again!"
Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."
Cons: "Even though we got off our connecting flight 30 mins before departure, the flight had "already left" as per the Qatar Doha crew and we were re-booked to the following day's flight. Very ridiculous."
Cons: "Broke my luggage"
Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, good service and food, and a very comprehensive on board entertainment selection."
Cons: "A lot of background noise when using the supplied headphones"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Pros: "Good everything"
Cons: "The business class section was very run down, old and dirty looking."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "Seating and hospitality"
Pros: "Very good it's the best. Ik"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."
Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Good food,excellent service,good entertainment !!"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness and entertainment in the flight."
Cons: "Very cold inside flight. And the crew is not providing any blankets. Crew delivers food very late literally after we starved to death ."

Pros: "Efficient, courteous and early arrival"
Cons: "Docking at an air bridge rather than taking a bus"
Pros: "Just fine.."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, crew, seat, food"
Cons: "The person on duty at the desk of the lounge in Johannesburg was very unfriendly and even rude."

Pros: "The plane was late for no reason. Missed my connection in Hong Kong. Cathay pacific gave me a voucher for 9usd, it was insulting and ill not fly with them again"
Cons: "The plane was late for no reason. Missed my connection in Hong Kong. Cathay pacific gave me a voucher for 9usd, it was insulting and ill not fly with them again."
Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."
Pros: "The smile that never ends on all the crews. Sespite their hard work, they never cease to smile and so gracious"
Pros: "very comfortable."

Cons: "I understand the airline passenger industry is trying to fit in as many passengers as possible; with preference for the 'money-making' bookings. But the reduction of seat space is very uncomfortable for my 6'2" frame."
Cons: "Our plane was late leaving Shanghai so we missed our connection to Hyd. Then it was routed to nearby airport for refeuling. Once in Hong Kong we were assigned a hotel but it took 2 hours in a Taxi line then an hour to the hotel.

Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Cons: "Rude ground staff at Athens airport, unable to check in online prior to flight, had to wait in line for over an hour for a connecting flight and run to the gate to then be told I was on standby for my next connecting flight. Poor customer service, no headphones given even though all seats have tv screens - such a small thing can make a difference to overall experience eg providing headphones. The check in and boarding forbthis flight was an absolute joke. Two men were about to have a fight due to how irritated everyone was for standing in line for so long. No need whatsoever. Meanwhile 3 staff sat at the ticketing desk and just watched the line grow! When I asked for assistance they brushed me off as if I were a flea! Athens Swiss airlines ground staff are up there with the worst customer service I’ve seen."
Cons: "I could have used USB charging station."

Pros: "I was very happy with the overall experience"

Pros: "He service was fantastic."
Pros: "General attitude of staff"
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."

Pros: "Great flight crew and equipment. Courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Rude gate staff who boarded economy and business all at once causing a 45 minute delay. Indifferent to passenger complaints and only had one boarding scanner for the entire flight. Slow and inefficient, and worst of all, unapologetic."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Old business class, old enterior, cabin too hot, seat uncomfortable due to permanent deflation of cushion."
Pros: "The whole experience was excellent didnt hv to wait long for luggage"
Cons: "Pressure to make connecting flight"
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"

Pros: "Good seats - comfortable Attentive service"
Cons: "Found my business class seat given away to a lady with a dog. Mine was window but with extra table next to aisle. She had aisle seat but with exactly the same configuration. Idea was she would place the dog on the table space next to her seat. It would be exactly the same for both seats. Do not know what they were thinking. There were other business class seats on the other side that had the table space ext to the window away from the aisle. That would make sense for the lady with dog. Business class was full and I was the last to get on, 45 minute connection in Zurich from terminal A to E, my seat was given. But as I objected, they moved the dog lady and gave me back my seat. But they never asked a person in the seat that would have made sense to give her to trade seats."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"
Pros: "The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Ok food and ok entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was very hot and there were no air conditioner valves so we had to sit in a hot plane for thirty minutes. Seats didn't recline at all so sleep was out of the question. Just a very miserable flight overall."
Cons: "Was not able to perform online checkin and thsu was not able to pick seats."
Pros: "Zurich airport"
Cons: "Not enough food. We had over 2 hours delay in the plane while in JFK and I got served only basic crackers and water. You should start whatever the customer wants when such a long delay in the plane. Lastly, the weight limit for ist connection flights was small plane and the lady who checked my hand baggage approached me not nicely."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice and organized."

Cons: "So little elbow room in center aisle that it was quite challenging to eat meals. Not enough lavatories, so they were in continual use, preventing any chance of rest. We were 3 aisles away in darkened cabin, but the flashes of light bright enough to read by and loud CLACKS of door latch when the door opened & closed kept us up the whole flight."

Cons: "Movies varaiety"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and service"
Cons: "narrow sitting space"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Pros: "Turkish Airline, great airline"
Pros: "crew was wonderful."
Cons: "leg room slightly tight for 12 hour flight."
Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was, thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."

Cons: "Despite having seats assigned we did not fly Customer service was just awful dealing with overbookings"
Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Overall the experience was good with friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggages where ruined and there was heavy rain. The luggages where left out instead of being protected l, damaging clothing and the luggages themselves."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew, food and diverse entertainment."
Pros: "The boarding and the time taken was all fine."
Cons: "The food was served really late because of which I got a headache."
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Pros: "Gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "I liked the movie options and the fact that we were given blankets and pillows."
Cons: "I was told in Vienna that I would be allowed to carry my Kindle onto my flight from Istanbul to the USA. I was not able to and had to wait in a very long line both in Istanbul and in the US. I understand the change in regulations, but it is important that all employees of Turkish airlines are aware of the change. We also waited one hour on the runway in Istanbul. Additionally, there was a small section of the plane which received food roughly an hour later than the rest of the plane. I was on this section, and was uncomfortably hungry by the time I received food."
Pros: "amazing !!!"
Cons: "It is impossible to make a one hour connecting flight in Istanbul when you take off 30 minutes late, arrive at a distant site (~ 5 km away from the arrival terminal) and the there is only one security guard to screen hundreds arriving. Missed our flight by 90 minutes, the customer service people were rude at the airport and we had a 7 hour delay. What are you thinking???"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "Availability on movies to watch"
Cons: "I've been flying to Greece for many years and this was the worst flight I've ever had! The flight was over packed. My fiancé and I did not get the seats I originally selected. Seats were so small and extremely uncomfortable. We had to wait for about 30' before we took off WITHOUT air conditioning!! That was miserable!!!! Last, I found HAIR in my food!!! Although, the flight we took from Atlanta to Instanbul was one of the best flights I've ever have taken. Mixed emotions.."
Pros: "First class treatment in economy class: high quality inter-personal contacts, socks and eye cover, great drink choices and good food."
Cons: "Late arrival in Boston, probably due to time change confusion in Istanbul."
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: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Cons: "Lack of meal options for second meal and under cooked meals."
Pros: "The best air line in Europe"
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."
Cons: "hardly uses bridges when boarding. have to take shuttle an attendant only said 'oops' instead of an apology to me when she spilt some water on me accidentally. and they rarely look at you when saying goodbye while you unboard the plane you'd expect better even from a 'mediocre' airline"
Pros: "Continued the great service"
Cons: "I would like a little more leg room"
