You should add little bit more snacks.
Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."
Pros: "I didnt go because the name in ticket was for person i book for him last time and i couldnt change the name with my name"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Pros: "The cabin crew worked hard and were extremely professional and friendly. they are to be commended for this!"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."
Cons: "The entertainment was giving some issues and the staff tried to resolve it. Eventually it came right by it self..."
Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Pros: "The food, drinks and entertainment we’re excellent. I also watched the staff caring for another passenger who was frequently summoning them for small requests but the staff was always patient and cheerful with him."
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"
Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "The entertainment and staff were unsurpassed. The food was better than industry standards."
Cons: "The seat was terribly uncomfortable. The seat bottom has a ridge that digs into your rear. This was on both 380 flights and I tried three seats in total. After a couple of hours is when the pain starts. If the seat back was moved forward, you would not sit on this edge. Please fix. Not sure I could fly on a 380 again for this duration."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Cons: "For three hours since takeoff we were not served any food or drinks. I was dehydrated and my sugar level had gone low. When they finally served us, they said they did not have a vegetarian meal inspite of my having ordered a hindu vegetarian meal. on creating a ruckus they managed to arrange a vegetarian meal"
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Better boarding system than just 4 zones. Within each zone, boarding needs to be done with specific rows at a time.
Checkin was greuling slow and an excruciating experience at the Indira Gandhi international airport. There were only 4 windows open to check in 300 passengers. It took me 50 mins to get to the window. I was there 3+ hours before departure time upon arrival from my domestic flight that arrived on Terminal 2. Security took another hour and no one from the flight ground staff came looking for me to expedite my security unlike the KLM staff. KLM staff was looking for their passengers in the security and immigration area for a good half hour. Also, I tried multiple times the day of my flight to WEB CHECKIN. the Qatar website and APP didn't let me do that either. I nearly missed my flight and was the last one to board!!!! I hope the airlines adapts to handle larger volume of passengers given the type of Airport rules and regulations. For example, IGA at New Delhi haa an additional Immigration step before security that's added an additional 45 min to my time to board the plane. Thank you and I hope a real human actually reads this survey response and it doesn't end up being processed by a computer bot that lacks human compassion and emotional IQ.
Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"

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."
Pros: "Service and entertainment"
Cons: "On boarding and on time departure"
Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Qatar Airways could not be described except a FIVE STARS airline. Great hospitality and respectful crew"

Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."
Pros: "Flight schedule in time."
Pros: "The flight attendants waited for me at the gate since customs was backed up. They saw me running and told me it was ok. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Best service ever from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Plenty of food and options. Always coming by with snacks, or towels, or drinks."
Cons: "Seat width is always an issue in economy, but nothing unexpected."
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
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."
Pros: "Felt like a new plane, with great service!"
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices"
Cons: "One of the rudest check-in staff I have ever dealt with"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. I had to take a bus, go through a transfer check, and then take a train to the gate, which got me there so late (even with running) that they were calling my name (and a few others) over the loud speaker."
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: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"

Cons: "We have missed connecting flight from Doha to Oslo because of bad weather and had to stay in Doha, Qatar for 16hours. But airline took care of all passengers, organized 5*hotel in heart of Doha with luxurious food in the hotel restaurant"
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Business class is top notch in Qatar airways. From the moment you get in the Business Cabin, you start feeling the great service onboard. The crew is great, the seats are very comfortable, and the food is very tasty along with the wine pairing. Overall, the experience was well worth it!"
Cons: "The problem was the boarding in Miami International airport, it was quite disorganized even for business class, but more so for economical class."
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
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."
Cons: "The codt of the ticket has been deducted twice from my account. So I paid double of the price. Please thankfully correct this mistake to continue using your services. Regards"
Very cramped space. Not enough toilets. Entertainment options were good. Food was good. Service was fast.
Pros: "Everything was comfortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Cons: "Nothing bad to report. Book Swiss!"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "Great organization, very efficient"

Pros: "Swiss is aways good"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding by rows and not like cows all at one time"
Pros: "Service on Swiss Air is great!"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."
Cons: "they cancelled letting me fly"
Pros: "Flight share with another airline so we couldn’t book our seats in advance."
Cons: "Space is cramped. Very professional and courteous crew."
Cons: "The plane was ancient. offer wifi- at least be able to pay for it. charger outlets."
Pros: "Fast boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "Not clear seat bookings cost $35. I was assigned the last row. Extra short width, pitch, couldn't fully recline (A340-300) Terrible food. Super old, tired plane. Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."

Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"
Cons: "Staff at the airport were great. Once you get on the plane, where the Swiss are, it was awful. I can't believe that an airline from Switzerland knows less about the customer service than Serbs."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "Entertainment failed on both my seat and the lady next to me. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "Staff, and service were good."
Cons: "We had to Run from our arrival gate to our departure gate, and take a train, and go through immigration and then a second documents check. It looked to me like Swiss Air knew we were running close as the flight rarely (if ever) leaves on time. It was stressful for us and for the 30+ others who were still in line in immigration when the flight time passed. It turned out to not be a problem but the published times are unrealistic. Seats were tight and comfort in cattle class is NON Existent sleep on an 8 hour flight was not even possible."
Pros: "Prompt and business like"
Cons: "As a business passenger I was told to go to the Avianca lounge this lounge is not Swiss standards the man sitting next to me was in a t shirt and swim shorts I started flying all over since 1952 most in the back so sorry to see such relaxed protocols"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed at the amount of food we received through out the flight. My family and I enjoyed our flight with Swiss airlines and will definitely use them next time we travel."
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "Seats have become tiny, crew were not very friendly. No ice on an 11hr15min flight , that was delayed almost 5hours!"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, on time, excellent flight"
Cons: "Cramped, the touch screen was not very responsive, the snack at midnight would be better if it were breakfast food-"
Pros: "The food provided and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The space between the seats are super small and uncomfortable. For a long flight you can barely sleep and your legs hurt after a while."
Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the middle of the night the night before, forced me to find another flight and re-book my morning 6:45am flight tickets at midnight for next morning. Not fun."
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "It was comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "Cervise was not so good was waiting almost 3 hours on check in"
Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."
Pros: "All on-board crew members were pleasant and helpful. The variety of movies and tv shows was sufficient to keep me occupied for the 9+ hour flight."
Cons: "For a 5' 4" person like myself, arm and leg room were barely minimal, Economy seats were crammed together and were not ergonomically designed for comfort or support. I was fortunate to be able to move from my center seat to an aisle seat once the flight was in progress. As soon as I did, the air around me was cooler and made for more comfortable breathing. In the center seat, the air was still and close—very uncomfortable. Poor communication regarding passport control protocol at the departure gate: A temporary station was set up, labeled Passport Control, but no SWISS agent announced what was happening. I had just gone through a passport control line on a lower level so I didn't think I had to go through a similar process at the gate. Most people around me also didn't know whether they had to go through the process at the gate. Once agents had been questioned on the subject several times, they should have made a general announcement to inform everyone at the gate. They did not. The food on the plane was the usual poor quality fare for economy class—either highly processed or overcooked and much too salty. Ugh."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"
Pros: "Best flight in years. Attentive crew, very good food and wine, on time. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I didn't starve for the 8 hours, and the included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot. Entertainment system was enough to help pass the time. This flight had USB chargers...had I known, I would have loaded up my mobile with watchable entertainment."
Cons: "It's still a cattle car for coach travel. Boarding was hectic. Called all passengers at once, which resulted in a crowd pushing to get through the two checkpoints all at once."
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."
Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"
Pros: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Cons: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."
Pros: "Good service... Quick boarding"
Cons: "Older plane, seats too narrow and short for 11hr flight. Bathrooms are TINY even by airline standards. Entertainment system has lots of choices but screens are low quality."
Major issue was a delay of about almost 1:30mins and comparing to North Atlantic flight it was a better shape
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Pros: "Good service. Great price."
Pros: "The seat & the food were better than I’d expected, and, of course, that’s a *big* part of the experience."
Cons: "I had to file a claim with Turkish because my new suitcase (not an expensive suitcase, but still) got seriously chewed up and is now unusable. At least it made it to the destination on time! And the contents were only slightly damaged. I will be happy if I get reimbursed for the suitcase."
Pros: "Food was better"
Cons: "Seating was not tight"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "Even though I chose my seat, the map of the plane on Turkish airline website didn’t match the plane seats and even though I chose an exit row seat but I was sit on a regular seat for the whole 13+ hours flight."
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Cons: "Redundant security checks, even at the gate area!"
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: "Great service, incredible food. To give it a quick one: we ate the fish. ON AN AIRPLANE. I never eat the fish on a plane, but the chefs were great. Everything we ate was exceptional. Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"
Pros: "Great staff. Very nice"
Cons: "No entertainment. The seats were very close together offering little leg room."
Cons: "You broke my suitcase"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the food was good. Nice selection for onboard entertainment. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "1. The boarding process at Istanbul airport was horrible. No one could speak or understand english. My father was on a wheelchair and he was the last one to be boarded on the plane! There was so much confusion - some people wanted me to go separately from him, others wanted him to walk down the stairs on his own, etc. etc. There were hardly any announcements for people with special needs. Generally they are allowed to board first as they need more time to settle. I could barely find overhead bin space for his stuff. 2. There were several remote controls broken on the plane. A lot of people had to suffer through a non working entertainment screen. 3. One of the hostess was hardly listening to anything I had to say. She seemed to be in so much of a hurry and had a very bad attitude."
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: "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."
Cons: "The people at the counter for boarding were not really friendly. the plane was dirty and in my opinion old. It made a lot of noice."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is better than all airlines I have used."
Cons: "The entertainment system could be more user friendly. Navigating the movies could be better. I'm not complaining, however. All in all, Tk is very good."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
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: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport. When we finally took off it was exactly an hour later than scheduled. That's the first time I've had a delay longer than the actual flight."
Pros: "I like Turkish airlines. I was able to go on a City Tour and try Turkish cuisine provided by the Turkish airlines. I wish you distribute loqum (Turkish delight) on board like you did couple years ago. Turkish, you are the best! Thank you!"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Cons: "The fact that I missed my connection flight in Thailand because of a two hour delay. I was never informed why there was so much of a delay and in turn I had to pay triple of what I payed before for my flight. Very disappointed. Won't be flying this airline again. Service was rude. They should be more responsible when it comes to timing. We were on the flight waiting for two hours!!!"
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."
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Cons: "Flight staff very pleasant and accommodating. Have always found "foreign"airlines have always been very good I will not fly domestic airlines out of the country Bad unpleasant experiences"
Cons: "I had a problem and I was not able to fly. I bought insurance and I tried to contact them, but they denied my request and I would definitely recommend to remove this option because it doesn't give a good image of KAYAK. If I want to trust this application, I have to be confident to use the services and I service from the insurance was fake. I tried to reach the airline to cancel my ticket and they said it's not refundable. Therefore, I would definitely recommend showing refund options when selling tickets. I lost every penny I spent because I was not able to fly. I am sure that my message is delivered now!!!!"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment were excellent"
Cons: "Seat assignments I made on line got changed."
Pros: "food was great, service-excellent, friendly staff"
Cons: "flight left an hour late"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Cons: "I missed my first night of a booked hotel and activities, and I wasn't refunded for all of it."
Pros: "The flight was empty so got 3 seats to myself"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were not good. Its a 13 and half hour leg and when in the middle of that long journey when asked for a snack, the crew was not aware of the options that were listed on their very own menu. They ended up telling me that they must have run out of one of the options listed in the menu which they were not aware even existed 2 minutes ago."
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "On board entertainment."
Cons: "Customer Service. They cancelled my flight in the middle of my vacation and just sent me an email moving my flights to next day. Unacceptable!!! I paid for it 4 months in advance. One cannot change my arrival from Sunday night to Monday night. Called Customer Service 20+ times to have it fixed. They are all outsourced incompetent and unprepared. Good planes overall, but horrible customer service. I will never fly Turkish again. I prefer to pay more and have decent customer service and no flights cancellations in the middle of my vacation."
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Pros: "My JFK to IST flight on Oct 21st, the plane was nice and new. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was up to date. The food on this particular flight was good."
Cons: "According to the Turkish Airlines site they offer free accommodations to passengers who have over 10 hr layover in Istanbul if you are an economy passenger. I was under this impression that I would fall under this category because when I initially booked the ticket (JFK - IST - LIS and return LIS - IST - JFK) my layover back to JFK was 18 hours. Two weeks prior to leaving for my trip I received a notification saying that the layover will be extended to 34 hours. Seeing that my layover was extended, I thought that Turkish Airline would offer me accommodation for both nights. When I arrived to IST (10:30pm local time) I went to the Turkish Airline transfer desk in which they said they would not allow me to have the 2 nights accommodation. After about an hour and half of discussion they could only offer me one night accommodation and changed my flight to an earlier flight. The attendant who was serving me told me to wait by the kiosk until my name was called. At the 30 minute mark I tried to ask another kiosk attendant to see what the status was and he replied back in a very rude manner saying he has no idea what I'm referring to and that essentially was not his problem. After another hour and half of waiting and seeing other frustrated passengers going to the transfer desk and not being helped, I went on the queue to see what the status of my ticket was. They finally gave me my ticket and at this point it was close to 1am. Thankfully I did research before hand and under the assumption that I was going to spend a day in Istanbul, spent $20 and got a Turkish visa prior to my travel, which according the the turkish consulate website that you can no longer get a visa while in the airport. I finally reached the airport hotel at 2:30am but the airport shuttle was to arrive in 4 hours to shuttle all the passengers back. So not only did I deal with a rude staff, but I paid $20 to be in Turkey for about 4 hours in an airport hotel."
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."

Cons: "My registered luggage was sent LAX->MDE and i had a short change in MEX. Running out of the LAX->MEX plane, the crew the said: "don't forget to pick up your luggage".. and then all went pairshaped. One member of MEX staff claimed the baggage is going directly to destination, another said that it won't and i need to pick it up myself and do god knows what with it. LAX->MEX flight delayed by 30mins, 1hr change time. Everybody relaxed just me loosing all my boozy contraband as i had no choice but to put my registered luggage thru security."

Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"
