Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
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"
Cons: "They forced me to check my cabin bag. It met their dimension requirements but said weighed too much (what does that have to do with space in cabin). They they lost the bag so I'm on vacation with no clothes."
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: "Polite crew, comfortable enough"
Cons: "Pack a meal and don’t rely on the airport at Istanbul for a grab and go meal beyond prepacked sandwiches. No options for lactose-free meals beyond the potato chips at the bar. In-flight food was awful- we had the no lactose meals."
Cons: "Movies didn't work well"
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 delayed, took 6 hours at the airport to get things straighten out. Lost the flight connection,"
Cons: "It took way too long to get the right information on the status of the flight"
Pros: "The service in the flight was good."
Cons: "There was a delay of one hour at the transit ."
Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The crew wasn't very warm or welcoming. No one smiled even once. They made it feel as if they were just doing their job and didn't care about customer service or comfort. The wifi didn't work the entire trip. Also, I got rammed with a service cart because the flight attendant said he didn't see me."
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: "the plane was nice"
Cons: "the timing was so bad"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft, very good cabin crew and service."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was mediocre. Seats were extremely crowded. Person in middle seat was large, causing over-crowding because he required more than his seat. I didn't check out the entertainment, as I didn't know how to use the electronics."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "The food, the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The security measures"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Pros: "I enjoyed that it was a new plane."
Cons: "Given that I have multiple sclerosis, I did not appreciate having to go up a set of steep steps in order to get onto the plane.."
Pros: "I like the Airline and I think the food is good, the problem sometimes is when you travel a lot you get the same food :) The crew are always great! I do a lot of connections in Istanbul and we never missed one in about two years flying there at least 4 times a month."
Cons: "During boarding they do not always board the Gold members first and in some cases when they do it is only to go on the bus before the others. I would like the Gold members to go first with either a bus of their own to at least with part of the bus reserved and we are allowed first on the plane."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "My favorite airline!"
Cons: "Faster boarding would be great"
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: "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!"

Pros: "The food and entertainment were great. The crew was good but..."
Cons: "...I could not feel the air conditioning at all where I was sitting in the back of the plane. I was literally sweating the entire flight. When I asked the flight attendants about it they muttered that they would take care of it and then never did. It was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "I had not had the possibility through the third party website to precise I woud like a vegetarian dish, but the staff could arrange it on the plane. The food was delicious."
Cons: "The contrast of the screen was bad, it was hard to see if the scene on the screen was a bit dark."
Cons: "Flight crew from Miami to Istanbul not very helpful. Very hot in plane"
Pros: "I loved it from the second it started, I didn't want to get off the plane. The service and comfort can't be beat. You get alot more than what you pay for."
Cons: "The entertainment was a little out of date and lacking but everything else makes up for it"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "very good food!! and excellent choice of movies"
Cons: "everytime the food from India to Istanbul is not very good, on all other flights like Miami to IST or IST to Zurich the food is excellent We flew Turkish already some time ago, also to India and we made the same experience."
Pros: "Amazing service ! Great food! Great amenities ! Very clean!!"
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: "The plane is almost brand new. The service, the food and the crew were fantastic."
Pros: "It was pretty short. 3 across in the middle rows is great, I wish all the flights had 3 seats in the middle."
Cons: "Cramped, no leg room."
Pros: "Great screen and movie selection."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Worst I've ever been on for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Expect this kind of quality and the level of service provided in economy class. Seats were comfortable, food was delicious, and the Stewart's were very accommodating. Made me wonder if I should of bought a business-class ticket"
Pros: "The timing The price"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The food is first class"
Cons: "Somehow the seats (business) are not quite horizontal and they remain very lumpy."
Pros: "Предупредительны вежливы хороший сервис, но не на всех самолетах стоят мониторы даже на одних и тех же маршрутах, что создает чувство досады. Некоторые кресла не совсем исправны и не откидываются."
Cons: "My tv screen broke on the return flight and they never fixed it"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Cons: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."
Cons: "This was a smooth as clockwork journey, the transit was easy and we were kept well informed about changes in the gate number"
Pros: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."

Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."

Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Pros: "Movie selection. Flight attendants very polite and friendly and helpful. Roomy upstairs with room to stretch and stand."
Cons: "Poor wine selection (one red one white) Flight attendants overserved alcohol to passenger in my area to point of slurring and not walking off plane. Food..bread hard and poor."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding. Flight attendants were very good. On time arrival."
Cons: "Tras pasar por la máquina con la tarjeta de embarque una azafata de tierra dijo que no podía pasar alegando que mi maleta de mano espesaba demasiado sin fijarse que ya había sido pesado con etiqueta de ‘cabin baggage por la aerolínea. Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."
Cons: "It was completely out of the airline's control but we were very delayed due to bed weather in Frankfurt"
Pros: "WiFi access, usb Port"
Pros: "The overall flight"
Cons: "The meal on board"
Pros: "Munich airport is great."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Cons: "Had requested vegetarian and was served vegan instead"
Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "The flight is less than 3 hours, yet they include a sandwich with the flight."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Food was awful. Looked like something you would find in prison. My second leg did not even have vegan options for me, as I ordered online weeks ago. I was so hungry after almost 14 hours of flying plus a 12-hour layover. I am not impressed with this airline."
Pros: "It was a nice flight and the crew and the people were nice"
Cons: "It was nice I cannot complain"
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "No issues"
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "The space and service. It's far beyond what you get on other airlines!"
Pros: "Standard short flight."
Cons: "I have no idea why they would book this flight for a connection to Chicago. They only gave me an hour window for connecting and with the plane delayed 30 minutes I had to rush through and skip everyone in like at passport check and made it just as the were boarding my connection."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, on time. Excellent choice of movies during the transatlantic legs. Generous portions of tasty food. Continual beverage service."
Pros: "it wasn't much but I did like it...the snack."
Cons: "I didnt like the narrow seats with no legroom."
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "The food was very good. The service, the preciseness."
Cons: "I didn't like the entertainment, there should me more options for movies in English and Arabic."
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "Much better than lax to frankfurt"
Cons: "Too much walking from one gate to another. Seemed as if I walked the whole airport."
Pros: "smooth flight, on time, professional and helpful, caring service"
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Pros: "The staff we're grate really helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment was not working so this made the flight long and boring."
Pros: "The entertainment system is fantastic, much like Singapore Airlines'. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "There was a mix-up of seats in the back of the plane. I didn't mind being asked to switch seats, but it took them a while to sort out the mess. So uncharacteristic of Lufthansa."
Cons: "Air conditioning was poor . Despite bringing the issue to the attention of cabin flight attendants, nothing was done to correct the problem"
Pros: "I can't really think o anything."
Cons: "The entertainment was very limited to a few movies. The headphone jack didn't work properly. The stewardess kept bumping into my fathers seat as she passed by. Seats (like other airlines) were unbearable after a few hours of flight time. Food was cold. Just before boarding the plane my carryon was taken because we had made some purchases at the airport and I had a backpack. I always stow my backpack under my seat and I would not have minded so much if my carryon was returned upon exiting the plane in Frankfurt but it wasn't. I had to go pick it up in baggage claim and then go through customs and security again. I am so glad I had a few hours to spare. If not I would have missed my flight to Houston. Please be considerate of this. I always take carryon to avoid uneccessary time consuming issues such as this or lost baggage. Lufthansa did not have an issue with my bags."
Cons: "the flight was cancelled"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled with no explanation. I won't book Lufthansa again. This is not right."
Pros: "We arrived- they delivered our bags to our hotel a day later"
Cons: "Bags didn't make the connection and because there was only one LH flight a day to Malta we were without luggage our first 36 hours on the island."
Pros: "New plane, got to destination safe and on time. Pilot gets A+."
Cons: "There was stuff, crumbs on my chair from previous flight. When i unwrapped the blanket there was a candy wrapper inside, the check in team didn't let us take our rolling suitcases but it wasn't a full flight, so there was definitely room for all bags, flight attendant crew was a bit dry and rude. I saw them being rude to a men. He was saying something about his seat and the flight attendant said "so what seat do you want now?" With a tone that implied annoyance. I am not sure why the crew was so curt and ticked off."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Seats unbelievably tight :("
