For the leg from Istanbul to Los Angeles I confirmed a window seat when I checked-in online.

The chicken meal had like 2 spoons of riice thrown in . Food was very unappealing . For a flight of about 7hrs it could have been better. My flight from U S to Istanbul was perfect . Meals , service ,bathrooms all good . Please they need to improve on the African route or stay off the route ."
Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."
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: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Terrible service, unhelpful staff on flight and in airport."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "landing in jeddah was very bad in caressive manner... but all other things were good"

Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I enjoyed the food. And most staff were friendly."
Pros: "Food was ok Service in plane was good"
Cons: "My chair would not recline easily. 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"
Cons: "I was not allowed the cancel my flight. I lost a lot of money and I will never book through or fly Turkish airlines again. They were rude and had terrible customer service."
Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."

Cons: "Would have preferred gate departure and arrival."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3 am. Not was delayed till 4:30. I had only 25 minutes to catch the other flight. I made it last minute. I asked the Turkish airline representative at the gate if my bag is on the plane. He said "yes". When I arrived to London I couldn't fibd my bag. I spent more than an hour looking for it since the employee assured me it was loaded to the plane, the person who was waiting to pick me yo had to pay around 15£ parking and wait for one hour and a half. I arrived without luggage. I have everything in the bag, my umbrella, jacket, cloths, pajamas, underwater, everything... the allowance that Turkish Airlibe said they will give allowed me to only buy a Pajama. I am totally NOT satisfied. I will not travel on this Airlibe again"

Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."

Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
Cons: "Seats space was very toght"

Pros: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Windows were dirty and that's looking for something. Lol"
Cons: "As usual, United manged to mess up something new and different. This time, they couldn't get the plane towed from the hangar to the gate in time for an on time departure. The ground staff was even annoyed by this development, and the plane finally appeared about the time we were supposed to be leaving. To their credit, the gate staff tried to keep getting updates and passing them along, but had little luck. Fortunately I did not miss my connection in Houston but I'm not sure the same was true for everybody. When we arrived, we sat for 10 minutes waiting for our gate to open, which the crew interestingly blamed on the delays caused by the rain. Funny, the only delayed flight on the screens in the terminal was odd ours. The rest of my trip was flawless. I'm sorry for Air New Zealand that they have to rely on United to gather passengers for them in the USA."
Cons: "Didn't have enough room for my feet and my small backpack"
Pros: "I would like to have movies shown during long flights."
Cons: "I do not like satellite TV option. No one seemed to even use it. The internet and the TV are only availlible for certain periods during the flight."

Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Cons: "I asked a flight attendant for headphones. He nodded and never returned."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Why do all the employees at United try to make you feel like your "putting them out" whenever you ask them anything. I have never experienced how an entire company can walk around with a chip on their shoulder. No life-threatening we are done."
Pros: "Flew to Austin instead of Houston because of weather. Then flew to Houston after 4 hours chilling on a plane in Austin!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and was on time."
Cons: "The personnel at the STA check were not very friendly."
Pros: "United Provide good service"
Cons: "The flight delayed"
Cons: "After boarding onto the aircraft, I asked a flight attendant if I could move from a middle seat and into a row with no occupied personnel. He said I couldn't because personnel were still boarding, and I promise you that there was only 3 people behind me in line, none of which sat in that row. I figured he would tell me I could move after the remaining 3 personnel boarded, but he did not and I sat uncomfortably that entire flight."
Cons: "4 hour delay, no power in basic economy only power if you upgraded to economy comfort."
Cons: "I upgrade to premium economy. This gave me a seat with legroom -but one that did NOT RECLINE ... on a night flight. I am very unhappy. It was not made clear when I upgraded (must have been very small print). I feel ripped off"

Pros: "Great flight. Everything was on time and went smoothly"

Pros: "Plenty of leg room in first class."
Cons: "Paid for upgrade to first class for smoother flight with more leg room. Flight attendant whose job is to server first class customers avoided me entire flight looking the other way whenever she was passing, making it impossible to ask for anything. I ended up asking different flight attendant for glass of water."
Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"
Cons: "I am Asian who was not allowed using restroom located in the front of airplane close to the 1st class cabin, but people sit next to me can. I feel insulted."
