Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Cons: "It was outstanding service !!!"
Cons: "Great service."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"
Cons: "Te long transit time in Qatar."
Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."
Cons: "Food and service and crew"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "Nothing was wow! Liked politeness of one of the airhost. She was good with good english"
Cons: "Plane wasnt clean enough specially toilet."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
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."
Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Plane was new and very nice."
Cons: "Kuwait airport is extremely un organized. Also you cannot upgrade your ticket as the staff in Kuwait are not able."
Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Meals & Snacks Meals served on board and in the lounges need improvement."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "The stewards were very attractive, the entertainment was plenty of movie choices."
Cons: "The food was terrible, the seats were extremely uncomfortiable."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food was really bad might as well have junk food."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly in Qatar for food....."
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
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: "More or less on time"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Flight took longer than usual."
Pros: "Crew was great. Peppy and kind."
Cons: "ORD ZRH seats extremely crowded. Wished for comfy Star Alliance seats for that flight which we did enjoy from ZRH BUD"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was really nice can’t complain"
Cons: "Other airlines offer free beer or even hard liquor here u have to pay"
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "the CREW WAS FRIENDLY AND CELEBRATING EASTER WITH THE GUESTS"
Cons: "THE FOOD WAS ADEQUATE, GIVEN THAT WE WERE ON AN AIRPLANE"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Food was great, creww was very nice"
Cons: "Following our request, such has being seated next to each other and not only having one person being upgraded when we're two."
Pros: "Check in agent was extremely helpful in expediting both me and my bags after a late check-in. Flight attendants very friendly and helpful, food excellent. If Swiss Air flew everywhere I need to go, I would fly them every time!"
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Cons: "Not enough sandwiches for all passengers on board Seat rows very close together, no way to avoid contact with seat in front"
Pros: "Swiss took care of arranging hotel for us and substitution flight."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because of delay"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, more or less."

Cons: "К сажалению,мне испортили отпуск. Был утеряны мой багаж. Я вынуждена 3 день ходить по магазинам и тратить свое время на отдых,покупая необходимые вещи,те, что необходимо для отдыха. Я потеряла три дня отдыха. И до сих пор я дожидаясь , сижу в квартире и не знаю когда он прибудет. Я крайне не довольна To the planting, I was spoiled vacation. My luggage was lost. I have to go shopping for 3 days and spend my time on vacation, buying the necessary things, those that are necessary for recreation. I lost three days of rest. And so far I'm waiting, sitting in the apartment and I do not know when he will arrive. I am extremely unhappy"
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Wonderful flight with less leg room . Since I am 5’6’m I was fit enough on the seats, beyond that you should be worried about"
Cons: "Flight attendant, food , service and many good things except the leg room which you regret in your entire journey"
Pros: "Swiss choclade"
Pros: "Although sitting in a plane in coach could never be considered a wonderful experience, Swiss Air did the most to make it so. in particular the crew was very responsive and cheerful. The leg room wasn't bad and they were very liberal with their wine and beer offering."
Pros: "On time departure. Nice crew Meals were fine for airline food. Would take again."
Cons: "Tight connection on Zurich."
Pros: "Smooth, on time flight"
Pros: "When checking in, I was upgraded to business without knowing it until I looked at my boarding passes. This was a good surprise of course."
Pros: "The service was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The business seats that we booked were normal economy plus seats with no one in the middle seat. The whole idea of booking a business class ticket is the extra comfort that comes with the lay flat seat or at absolute minimum on smaller planes the wider more comfortable seat. Neither of those were present on this flight. Calling this a business class is a rip off."
Pros: "Service wa a ok."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "Or print out a boarding pass. Much unlike our experience with Lufthansa flying from Boston through Frankfurt to Geneva."
Cons: "See sbove"
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."

Cons: "-That I can't always fly Swiss"
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."
Pros: "The quiches are so yummy, and very compact and easy."
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."
Cons: "People who handle Swiss"
Pros: "Great flight. Boarding, departure and arrival on time. Excellent flight attendants."
Pros: "Everything was great.... The food , crew was fantastic , nice friendly stuff ! Very happy with the flights"
Cons: "Well not really! I can only say negative things is the seats but is not Swiss is all airlines !!! Zero space for your legs"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "It was only an hour long flight, and I slept most of the way. From what I could tell, the staff seemed friendly. Only complaint would be that on the way to the plane (we had to take a bus) we were packed in like sardines and it was very hot. Once we got to the plane, we were left standing in the bus for a couple minutes. Because of the heat, I thought I was going to pass out."
Pros: "Comfortable business class seats, much better than the updated Lufthansa footsie leg rests. Attentive staff. Puzzles for the children"
Cons: "Still no wifi on the Swiss Air A330. No live tv streaming. No big deal on red eye, but frustrating on long daytime flights."
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Pros: "I was offered several snacks throughout the flight, which helped to pass the time and gave me the opportunity to drink water, which helps a lot."
Cons: "Seats were very tight in the cabin. I don't know of an airline that does not jam seats into coach, so this is expected."
Cons: "There was adely because of bad wether. It made us miss the conection but none talked to us and explained what is going on."
Pros: "Online check in did not work at all despite being a member. Could not get my seat which was super annoying. The desk person said my bag was too big despite being carry on size. He offered me business class but I wanted a window so I was further back. When I got on the plane I told the cabin crew I'd been offered row 3 and decided I'd rather be there and they acted like I was nuts. Not I,pressed."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "In time Nice service Delicious Meals Great Movies"
Cons: "No priority for boarding with Children No internet on Board"
Pros: "Swiss just takes care of you from beginning to the end. All done in a nice and non-intrusive manner."

Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit unorganized."
Pros: "Good seats, great staff, good food, luggage service on time, excellent price!!"
Pros: "Good service"
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: "The grilled cheese sandwiches. They've been in the menu for a while but my family does not enjoy them at all. Tuna sandwich on another flight was much better. Also lack of entertainment. They allow you to access it, then they turn it off. Is such a tease. Plane left late and kept us in very hot cabin."
Cons: "I didn’t like the nearly 3 hour delay that caused me to miss my connection, and how poorly that was handled. I just lost one day of my 10-day vacation"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."
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: "I was upgraded. Food was great"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "I have been told at the airport that I had an unconfirmed flight and was told that I could not travel to Istanbul. I am still at my departure city, in Chicago. I bought my tickets just like anybody would, go on the website, pick the flights and pay. But someone did not do their job correctly and did not correctly confirm my flight. I paid for this incompetence by missing Christmas and a business meeting. Do not think it will never happen to you, it is just a matter of time that this kind of bad service catches up to you. The system is so disconnected or careless that it can't even figure out I couldn't take the flight which it is is asking me a review for."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew, surprisingly great food, and nice drink options."
Cons: "AC is on initially, then it gets really hot and uncomfortable after the first meal service. i asked a CA if she could help, but the temperature didn't change. This was the pattern for all 4 flights I took recently. Everything else was great though!"
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: "I like everything"
Cons: "See volume issue from earlier."
Pros: "Worst flight"
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."
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.?"
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."
Cons: "NO ONE IN TURKISH AIRLINES WILL HELP YOU AND WHEN YOU ASK FOR HELP IT BECOMES AN INCONVENIENCE FOR THEM. HERE'S THE STORY, MY FLIGHT WAS 2 HOURS LATE SO WHEN WE LANDED TO CATCH OUR TRANSIT FLIGHT IT WAS ALREADY GONE. SO WHEN WE ARRIVE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE ABOUT A HOTEL OR FOOD THEY HAND US THIS PAPER AND TOLD US TO GO TO THE HOTEL THAT IS IN THE AIRPORT IT WOULD BE FOR FREE ALONG WITH THE FOOD. WHEN WE GET THERE THEY TOLD US NO, IT IS ONLY FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS AND WHEN WE EXPLAIN THAT PASSPORT CONTROL SENT US HERE WITH THIS PAPER THEY RESPONDED NO, WE NEED A HOTEL VOUCHER AND WE NEED TO GO BACK. WHEN WE ASK HER TO CALL PASSPORT CONTROL (BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SENT US TO THEM) TO SPEAK TO THEM YOURSELF, SHE SAYS "IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM" WHICH THEN MADE ME SNAP AT HER AND TELL HER WTF DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM? YOU WORK HERE!!" SO WHEN I ASK FOR THE MANAGERS NUMBER FOR COMPLAINT SHE GIVES ME A 5 DIGIT NUMBER THAT LOOKS MORE LIKE A ZIP CODE THEN A PHONE NUMBER. THEN WE GO BACK TO PASSPORT CONTROL WHO TOLD US THAT WE WOULD HAVE A FREE HOTEL AND FOOD THEY CHANGED THERE STORY AND DIRECTED US TO PAY FOR A VISA AND PAY FOR A HOTEL OUTSIDE. SO IN THE END THEY GAVE US A BULLSHIT STORY SO THEY CAN GET RID OF US AND HAVE US RUN AROUND WHERE IN THE END WE GAVE UP AND SLEPT IN THE AIRPORT TILL WE GOT HOME. THIS IS WHEN I WAS COMING BACK WITH TURKISH AIRLINES. GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION THE FLIGHT WAS LATE 4 HOURS AND LUCKILY FOR US WE HAD A LONG LAYOVER THAT WE DIDNT MISS MY FLIGHT GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION. SO GOING AND RETURNING FLIGHT WAS LATE! WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD!! I WOULD NEVER FLY WITH TURKISH AIRLINES! AND WHILE I WAS THERE FINALLY GETTING READY TO GO HOME A MAN SAT BEHIND ME AND ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING ON THE SAME FLIGHT AS HIM AND I TOLD HIM NO WHICH THEN HE STRIKES UP THE CONVERSATION AS TO HOW TURKISH AIRLINES MADE HIM MISS HIS FIGHT AND GAVE HIM HELL! SO I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM! IN THE END HE SAID TO ME TURKISH AIRLINES IS GARBAGE! AND I DONT BLAME HIM!! STAFF WAS THE WORST THING TO DEAL WITH AT TURKISH AIRLINES!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"
Cons: "I was happy with everything"
Pros: "Meal very good. On time."
Cons: "Audio for entertainment via ear buds almost indecipherable."
Cons: "terrible delays and little assistance in Warsaw from turkish airline desk"
Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."
Pros: "Seatback entertaininment options were amazing. Food wasn't always designed for the American palette, but most of it was pretty good, and they put a good effort into it, unlike US carriers. Flight attendants were great. Boarding was organized and smooth."
Cons: "It's just hard to make a 14 hour flight in economy comfortable. Another inch or two of space would have helped, but I understand the tradeoffs involved in that. Baggage collection at IAH took about 30 minutes, but that may have been the airport's fault and not the airline's."
Pros: "The meals were delicious The crew was so kind and paid attention to detail They passed gifts out during flight They made sure our needs were met The best airline experience I've ever had"
Pros: "Setting, speed, arrival"
Cons: "Long queue at passport control"
Pros: "Ayten was the perfect flight attendant. Very friendly and helpful. Outstanding."
Pros: "Great : food. Entertainment , service . Check in, laguage accommodation."
Cons: "In All my flights with them it is Sssoooo hot!!! They save on A/C??? I asked to cool the cabine - they did for 15 min and back to heat again . Managing seat assignment is impossible if you book through a website other than theirs . They don't have an "economy comfort " option"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines did not transfer my bag. I am still waiting to find out if it has been routed to MLX."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
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: "Entertainment on board was the best part. Food is decent."
Cons: "Worst customer service I've ever had in an airport at Attaturk. Turkish airline staff was horribly rude, wouldn't acknowledge their mistakes, very uninforming and all of it to pretty much force you to pay the airline more money in penalty fees for changing flight arrangements and new ticket purchases. And be careful THEY DON'T have any announcement on the intercom system at Attaturk (I had no clue as to that being the case there, nor have I ever been at an airport that doesn't). No boarding announcement, no gate change announcement, no nothing.....and if and when you miss a flight because you didn't know the gate changed while you're sitting at what you thought was your gate and no one bothered to let you know (including the person who checked your boarding pass when you came into that gate area, it's down hill from there! They will tell you it's your fault and not give a dam* what you say to argue otherwise....and......if you don't pay the penalty they dictate to change your flight ($1114 on a $780 ticket in my case so I purchased another ticket on Turkish air on my own for $236 to get me where I was going), they WILL cancel your return flight without telling you, at which point you will have to buy a new ticket to get back home and they end up getting the money out of you regardless. This was an absolute nightmare of a trip, couple with being treated like dirt by everyone at the airport. I will not ever again fly Turkish Air if I can help it."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
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: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. and i really like the food they serve"
Cons: "not a fan of the tight sitting"
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

Cons: "No lemonade. There were a lot of steps of security at the gate."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment + decent food"
Cons: "less seat space"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Pros: "I love Turkish Airlines overall. Their bigger international airplanes have more leg room for a coach for longer flights. Crew were courteous and professional."
Pros: "The food was good, the drinks were great, the stewardesses were professional and helpful and the entertainment system was really good, lots of movies. We got there safe and on time...what more do you need? Oh, and the price for my route was amazing; the next airline was $1000 more and the one after that $2000 more."

Cons: "Cabin was too warm; unable to adjust air at seats"
Pros: "We landed safely. I like the A380."

Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive. The food and complementary drinks were satisfactory. There were many movie and television options."
Cons: "The lady next to me got into an argument and no one intervened to defuse it. Not sure what protocol is there. The seats reclined too far into my personal space making me feel uncomfortable."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"
Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. It is always uncomfortable due to the fact that you need to ask the person sitting next to you to get up because you need to use the restroom. Aside from that my overall experience was excellent. The food, entertainment, staff all helpful and friendly."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my l"
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "The tightness of the seat arrangement when the row ahead reclined is extremely awkward. We are not large people but getting over the aisle armrest was very difficult to maneuver to avoid injury (falling). The security in Munich was upsetting in that one man yelled at me , "Get it out! Get it out! Get it out! because I put my electronics in one of the bins before my husband. I was confused as to what I had supposedly done and I said, "This is my husband" (who was removing his shoes) and this man's reply was "I didn't know that". We were not trying to cause trouble and we cannot understand why he had to yell."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6h. I got to the destination late And I was late for work Went to work restless"

Cons: "Seat cushions lacked deep cushions, seats were too close together, could not stand up. Boarding was not done by rows, so took longer than usual."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle."

Cons: "Delayed flights for a day"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Helpful, friendly crew. Will use Condor services again."

Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Cons: "Food should be much better than this. Otherwise everything is ok."
Pros: "The hotel was nice although I was unable to sleep due to the delays all around concerning my connecting flight. I am thoroughly upset because I contacted the airlines 3 times in May to express my concern with the 30mins layover. And to no avail. My worst concerns are being played out now. It appears that their isn’t any concern from the airlines about this catastrophe impacting so many people. Shame on you."
Cons: "The connecting flight departed before the first flight landed. Then I was given the wrong information of gate departure by airport personnel. After running like crazy to find this gate for departure, the plane had already departed before we even landed. There wasn’t anyone around to help, and finally I found an airport worker who gave me the same incorrect information. She was as perplexed as was I. Finally, she directed me to the information booth where I was booked in a flight the next day. The food voucher was insufficient to cover dinner, i had to pay out of my pocket but I was frugal given the financial situation. The taxi service personnel were rude and it took a long time to taxi me to the hotel where I am unable to sleep because I have an early morning g departure. All in all, between the airport delays getting me to the hotel, lack of proper food and treatment by personnel, I am exhausted and lost sleep in the process."

Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"

Cons: "As a gluten free person dinner delicious but after 5-6 next hours for breakfast I got few small slices of melon... like really?? This will not feed anyone! For next time I know that I have to bring my own food.. so bad! While servis time we ordered whisky with cola and after one hour we went to ask for one more cause we wanted and CA told us they dont serve anymore whisky only wine or beer.

I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."

Cons: "I can't believe they charge extra to reserve a seat. Just charge an honest flight."
Pros: "The crew was the only good thing about this flight/airline."
Cons: "I was very disappointed with Austrian airlines. I was not able to pick my own seat even after I checked in and the actual seats on the plane were extremely small and uncomfortable. This made it impossible for me to enjoy mi flight. A 5'6' person should not have any issues but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. The seat was very narrow - it felt cramped and as if they turned a space designed for 2-4-2 into a 3-4-3. When I called the customer service before the flight to get a seat next to my husband who had a separate reservation, it took about 4 calls before anyone even mentioned that out reservations could be linked together. will not fly Austrian airlines again."

Pros: "Nice flight..friendly staff, tasty food, and on time arrivals."

I feel taken advantage of paying $44.00 U.S. for a snack that was 22 Euros. It happened again with another vendor there..$6.00 for a 3 Euro small bottle of water."
Pros: "The flight was on time (actually arrived early). Everything was great, except for the seats and knee space, which was just ok - in line with every other company; that doesn't make it good. The entertainment unit was great, many options plus a charging USB port. Food was good; coffee was bad (instant) - is it that difficult to make good coffee on the plane? Crew was professional and efficient. Happy(ish) overall. Thanks."
