Food was not good at all

Pros: "Yes, it was great."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, economy seats are narrow."
Cons: "the seats are not reclined, not comfortable at all"
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"
Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The boarding"
Cons: "Nice trip"
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. The seats in premium economy are perfect for long flights and the food was great."
Cons: "Nothing bad"
Pros: "Food was good and staff were very helpful. The boarding zone in economy class were easy , it started from the last to the front."
Cons: "Check in was a little bit confused, we arrived 5 hrs. Before our departure thinking that we can check in our luggage so we can rest in the gate area, but we had to wait 3 hrs to open the check in counter."
Pros: "Had the katsudon and it was great, love the little tapas dishes they include with it."
Cons: "Would have loved to get a hot towel and slippers. 787 got quite cold when sitting in the middle section. Didn’t seem to have any way to control it."
Pros: "Flight check-in counter was so nice and accommodating. Makes me never want to go back to rude America."
Pros: "Crew amazing and food very good."
Cons: "Crew woke us up 2 hours before landing, would ha e been great to sleep longer."
Pros: "I got a great value for money ticket from KAYAK, TQ!! ANA is an excellent airline, better service, better leg rooms and cuter crew members than than SQ!!"
Cons: "In flight meal could be improved"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything the whole team was great."
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
Cons: "Seats could be better"
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful, food and snacks were great and seats were comfortable and seemed to have a bit more space."
Pros: "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."
Pros: "Crew onboard and in Brussels where very nice and efficient."
Cons: "Plane was nice and clean but they should upgrade the standard of the food and there movie selection."
Pros: "Loved everything about the flight - food was good plenty of drinks throughout the flight unlimited movies smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30+ minutes which made me/many others late for any connecting flights."
Pros: "I loved flying Ana. I cannot stress enough how exemplary the service was and the overall comfort/experience was one of the best I've had. I am looking forward to flying with them again next year when I return to Japan."
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."
Pros: "Customer service and food!"
Pros: "It was OK. Time was the same as Asiana and Korea Air."
Cons: "I don't Japan airport."
Cons: "Missed my flight over a misscommunication on getting to the airport. Thete was not sufficient time to arrive more than an hour early due to the fact Gimpo airport opens at 6am and the flight was at 7:45. When I arrived I was not allowed to check in or board and no one wanted to help me find out what to do. They suggested I call my ticketing agent. Thankfully they were helpful but they mentioned the ANA SHOULD have helped me find the next available flight but the representative kept repeating it was not her job. Finally she looked and said there were no available flights and tried to push me to buy another ticket through another company. My ticketing agent helped after she heard what happened and rebooked my flight for the next day. Hopefully everything goes smoothly but ANA staff at Gimpo were a bit of a nightmare to deal with"
Pros: "They had a lot of Great Movies! I was able to catch up with Kong, James Bond, The Great Wall and much, much more!"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "Delay too much time"
Pros: "Over all service was good."
Cons: "Over all service was good. Only food what I ordered could not get. My requirement was vegetarian without onion, garlic and mushroom. There was mushroom in the food."
Pros: "Efficient, courteous crews,"
Cons: "Luggage check-in referred to United Airline was refused.JetBlue checked luggage to final destination efficiently."
Pros: "Excellent service, free new release in-flight movies, comfortable seating, plenty of food and drink included."
Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."
Cons: "We didn't hear the announcement that the gate for our flight had changed. I just happened to look at the flight info and noticed our flight was not listed. I went to the desk then I was informed of the change. Poor service."
Pros: "leg room!"
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that mostly everyone is bilingual there. It helped tremendously because I don't know Japanese."
Pros: "clean seat and tray"
Cons: "poor movie selection. slow cleanup after meal (more than 1 hr)."
Pros: "As always, the Japanese customer service is wonderful - I have no complaints in that department!"
Cons: "The boarding process is pretty annoying....they do not board until minutes before the flight time and we still had to take a bus to the actual plane. We took off late (which, personally, at this point, I had just been on a 14 hour flight plus the 2 hours layover) - a delay just added to the exhaustion. Also, the plane was very old and very hot...even though it was only a one hour flight, it was very uncomfortable and outdated."
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary. Every crew member goes above and beyond one's expectations. My wife and my kid had a lovely time and comfortable journey. Will definitely try to book this flight again in future."
Cons: "There was no Indian or vegetarian food. My wife and my kid had to work with bread and jam only."
Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing really when flying coach. Second meal now like a box lunch instead of full meal. Cost cutting I guess. Seats are small but not as bad as United domestic. No major complaints."
Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Don't recline. Could use more film choices."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "All old movies in English"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight very much!"

Pros: "I liked the food and the personal television you get. You can play video games on it which was cool."
Cons: "The wifi cost $20 for the whole flight. Pretty expensive compared to other airlines!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies/TV) are rather limited and mostly not to my taste. Entertainment was also the same on the flights there and back, meaning that on the second flight, there was even less choice."
Cons: "Food and entertainment options"
Pros: "Check in was easy and staff and crew were very polite."
Cons: "Headphones didn't work well. We had pre-ordered a child meal 24 hours in advance but did not receive it."

Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked.

Pros: "Some of the Korean food was tasty The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."

Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "No"

Even though, meals were preselected, the airlines could not provide them , saying they didn’t have enough stock. The main meal in Doha to IAD sector was delayed. Other than those issues, everything was great.

Lost 2 check in bags at chicago, no customer service at all. Playing phone tags. Missing critical medications

Courteous! Long lines.

Experience in IAD could have been lot better. IAD is one of the worst airport ik n terms of service. Chennai is also equally worst with too many bureacracies.

Pros: "Excellent services"
Pros: "No distance between passengers (covid)"

Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "The food and flight staff were good"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Extra baggage was charged $250 for 1 extra baggage when other airlines change $70. Also on the Qatar Airway site it states that after 3 hours of the flight if seats are available business class upgrade would cost much less and this was not the case. They wanted $2000 for the upgrade."
Pros: "Qatar airways is the best company"
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Need good wheel chair service."
Pros: "Very Good Company"
Pros: "the attendants were always on top of things. One of best overall flights ever."

Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Pros: "Crew were extremely helpful and kind. Very responsible and polite."
Cons: "LCD was not touch screen and was extremely difficult to work with . I couldn't scape from an accidental menu which I was dropped in games and missed whole flight to enjoy something in LCD ."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."
Pros: "Everythinగ"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "It was something unexpected"
Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."
Pros: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"
Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "price and comfort"
Pros: "I like Qatar service very much and that is why I fly with them most of the time."
Pros: "The flight was good. But daily they are delayed and the passengers had to miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."
Cons: "My first time on Qatar, I'd heard only good things. The food was surprisingly bad, tasteless or bad tasting. Sure I'd take Qatar over most other airlines, but it seems maybe there are cutting corners on their food."
Cons: "Being a replacement flight due to delays in original flight from London, the airways chosen our seats beside the emergency exit my son who is 15 and other customer asked to swap seats for safty reasons which I fully support. computer and staff should be smart enough to choose for my son a proper seat."
Cons: "Only one person in the three row and that was really great flight"
Cons: "An airline not only with the best service but the best looking flight attendants. They genuinely smile"
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "They ran out of chicken for the back part of the plane so we all had salmon"
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "The crew.. And the quality of the aircraft. Plus the on time departure and arrival was fantastic"
Cons: "The TV show collection was a bit of a letdown"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew. Not so good food. flat bed is a blessing. sleep throughout the flight."
Pros: "Friendly, capable crew. Seats very comfortable - properly flat/horizontal beds."
Cons: "Connection was too rushed in Dubai. It seemed odd that they treated it as a night flight (dark cabin), given that it left at 10am - is this for the convenience of the staff?"
Pros: "pleasant staff excellent movie selection decent food"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Everything, hands down best flights I've ever hand, I'm flying Emirates every single opportunity i get moving forward"
Pros: "I enjoyed the service on board including the stability of the plane"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service onboard the flight was good."
Cons: "Connection in Dubai was terrible. Super long bus ride. Nobody at the terminal to direct you to where the Business Class Lounge is. Had to walk very long distances to get to the Lounge. No staff at the gates in the Business Class Lounge. Flight was delayed but no staff to give information at all."
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."
Pros: "Staff did their best and were polite but ultimately had no solution for the issue"
Cons: "I was unable to get an aisle seat therefore I was stuck in an middle seat. I am rather tall and the man on the window seat was morbidly obese and half of him was sitting on top of me for most of the flight. He also sweated all over me, snoredand snorted for the whole flight. I spent much of the flight standing and now have terrible leg oedema. It was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. the flight was full so there were no reseating options apparently. It was extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "their hospitality"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "Firstly, the attitude of the staff was beyond comprehension. From the get go, they all looked as if they were working at gunpoint. Secondly, the food was inedible. Over salty, bland, and above all, they ran out of food. On an aircraft the size of an A380, one would like to assume that there will be enough food for people who are stuck and afraid of asking for anything from the moody staff. I have been travelling with Emirates for years now and insisted on flying it this time around upon much disapproval from my peers and family. My experience proved them right. I am still in complete shock and dismay. On a 12+ hour journey if I have to witness the staff rolling their eyes and where the passengers have to think twice before asking to be served, I think that's not right. Shame on you Emirates."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Cons: "I was treated differently, because, I bought my ticket from Kayak and not directly from Emirates."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "777 are pretty good"
Cons: "Screen was broken for the whole flight , after repeated calls to the flight attendants nothing was done"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "I missed the first segment of my flight due to an accident and traffic on the way to the airport. I was asked to pay $1200 to get on to the next flight (without any warning that my subsequent segments will be suspended) so I bought an one way to Dubai from NYC. Then my subsequent flights were all suspended and I had to buy a new set of flights for the remaining of the trip. I didn't get to take any of the flights I purchased through Kayak."
Pros: "Overall ok, food n entertainment was good"
Cons: "You cannot request seat preference, did not help!!"
Pros: "Service, comfort, food, wine, all outstanding."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and not very accommodating. They did not respond to the request button and did not bring the water I asked for many times."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "Unlike most reviewers, I never have a good experience with Emirates.However, Crew (this time) was very accommodating and did their best to make this a comfortable trip."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "Boarding was 'mediocre' due to the air crash earlier in the day, led to a gate change and various chaos. Great staff through, so not really so bad and totally understandable...."
Pros: "The cred, the sets, the fact that I could use the tablet during the flight . The winds were strong , still, for some reason I had confidence in the pilots."
Cons: "Maybe not imposing penalties if someone is missing the flight.."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I have to wait 5 hours for a connection flight. I was not happy with. Other then that I had a great experience with Turkish Air lines"
Pros: "The service was great, crew was sweet and accommodating, food was good"
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable...but what do you expect after an 11 hour and 20 minute flight?"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Yes amazing"
Pros: "Good food, excellent lounge in Istanbul and super comfy seats in the longer leg"
Cons: "Boarding crew did not have the required knowledge of visa process and made us wait 40 mins"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours but Turkish airlines inisisted that I had to be at the airport and checked in at the scheduled time and then wait at the airport for that whole time."
Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "Unreasonably late, no explanations, no apologies, 90 minute flight instead of 50 as promised."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Pros: "The food in Economy was some of the best I've ever had and the crew was very friendly."

Pros: "The service, food,seats,crew,hot towel, slippers & more."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, relatively clean and the food was quite nice"
Cons: "For a flight leaving at almost 1 am, it's quite annoying to be force fed dinner and prevented to sleep for the first two hours of the flight. Dim the lights and do "on demand" dinner please."
Cons: "The crew did not seem interested at all; the food was mediocre and the headphones provided were broken and despitea repeated request to get new ones I did not get theme"
Pros: "Awesome"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Cons: "Turkish airlines used to be airline offering good food, now you only get sendwich"
Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."
Pros: "Crew attendance"
Cons: "No place for hand luggage"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Cons: "Crew was. It helpful at all. They created more confusion and frustration. I spend 24 hours calling and talking to them in order to rebook the flight. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
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: "Courteous service. Good food."
Cons: "USB plug did not work, but was offered a different seat."
Pros: "Fantastic food and service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service and people"
Cons: "Long lines and security pat downs...."
Pros: "Crew, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "I had a stop in Istanbul airport and a change of planes The first plane although much larger than the second the set leg room was very tight, for 186cm tall person it was a disaster The second plane however had better leg room and was more comfortable than the first"
Pros: "The planes I flew in were very clean, comfortable and in great condition. I enjoy the seat space and comfort, good entertainment options with great quality entertainment system. The meals were also decent and we were even fed sandwiches on a short flight."

Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "It was great to be fed, especially a full meal, on such a short flight."
Cons: "They ran out of homemade lemonade with fresh mint before I got any."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "it was so HOT!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat arrangement, no leg room."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "Muy buena aerolínea. Todo estuvo bien. 100% recomendada."
Cons: "The temperature was a little bit low."
Pros: "Food was ok Service in plane was good"

This happened twice now on Turkish airlines No wifi---not good Ticket counter attendant at airport check in should be more customer friendly Large groups and families check in at ticket counter should be different than that of one or two people check in Air hostesses in the plane seems too serious I did not like the screen setup on the tv"
