Airline reviews

Pros: "Amazing crew i must give it to them... super hospitality."
Cons: "for now non, may be later after much observations, other than that... it was excellent !!"

Pros: "I like how the crow did help me with my dizziness and provided me with an extra oxygen to breath better."
Cons: "I don’t know, but I always find it difficult with food smells, then make me sick and did today in the flight"

Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Pros: "Tripulación muy atenta"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Longer wifi time and faster connection"

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"

Pros: "Great service with very friendly crew who pamper you all through the flight. Delicious food served at the time you like. Also, the Q Suite design is very comfortable, private & flexible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 18 minutes & disembarking was not direct but via bus."

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Pros: "Great service onboard!!"
Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."

Pros: "The crew was FANTASTIC!! SO kind and helpful, and went out of their way the whole flight to assist us with anything and everything we needed! :)"

Cons: "The time of flight changed 1:30 hour erlier and we did get noticed we were about to miss the flight it’s so annoying but at the end we catch it"

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."

Pros: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"

Pros: "Excellent service..!"

Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."

Pros: "Everything very smooth. Staff delightful and always helpful!"

Pros: "Would be very happy to fly again on qatar if options for Indian food menu is increased"

Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."

Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"

Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Had the best flight experience of my life. Comfort, food & especially service was excellent."

Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."

Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was always present. The food was good too."
Cons: "Too many crying children, but that has nothing to do with you guys. And the movie selection could have been more and better. The bathrooms should be frequently checked and cleaned."

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "My first flight to DOHA was cancelled"

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."

Pros: "It was something unexpected"

Cons: "The business class seats on this A330 are to tight when turned into a bed."

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Pros: "Over all the flight was great."
Cons: "However I feel the need to share that the lid of one of the lights fell off and hit my girlfriend on her nose while she was asleep hurting her instantly. I understand that it was an accident, but nobody takes responsibility for it."

Pros: "Quick, easy boarding and nice crew with professionalism."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food all around."

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Baggage payments n information"

Pros: "Seat not comfortable at all... no TV.... sounds bizarre from the plane.... I was scared all the time"

Cons: "My luggage wheel was broken which means it was handled badly even when I flew business class!! Seats of other business class are more comfortable"

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "It was warm on plane"

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "They put me on a partner airline after causing my missed connection, so I witnessed nothing good about Turkish Airlines flight at this time."
Cons: "After a long saga with no help in making my connecting flight on the same Turkish Airlines, they gave me the boarding pass and told me my luggage was fine to carry on board for the partner airline they put me on. At the gate, that partner airline's reps (or Istanbul airport employees -- not sure) yelled at me that I had too much to carry on board and forced me to hastily check a bag with personal items I did not plan on checking. Needless to say, that also delayed my reaching the final destination even further because I had to wait for the luggage and it was already 1:00 in the morning in an unfamiliar and rough foreign city."

Pros: "We liked the ability to watch movies and television programs to pass the time."
Cons: "We did not like that to use Internet we had to pay an extra fee. We did not care for the food. We were not impressed with the cleanliness of the aircraft. We did not like that the bathrooms ran out of water to wash our hands. We did not like that flight attendants handled and served food with no water on the flight to wash their hands. Most flight attendants were unfriendly. The one gentleman that served us was pleasant. We really did not like that between the food service we saw virtually no flight attendants other than those sleeping in the area at the back of the plane. We did not like that we could not understand the announcements made. We did not like the fact that passengers were not reprimanded upon landing for using electrical devices and laptop computers even though an announcement had been made to turn all devices off and put them away. Once announcement was made not one flight attendant said anything to those people around us who did not follow the request. We did not appreciate the uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "customer service needs upgrading"

Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Cons: "Delaying without notice and luggage lost"

Pros: "Comfortable, great food, awesome crew! I love that they have a great variety of entertainment material."

Pros: "Turkish had several flights departing close In time and they only had three agents at the check in counter, makin* the process painful at 4:30am. After on hour in line only about 10 passenger seat were checked in. By th way all the security screening procedures ran very smooth and quick, it was Turkish procesdures and man powe4 that was poor. Boarding the airplanes was chaos, both in Tel Aviv and Istanbul."
Cons: "Very little was done to impress the passengers from check in, boarding, airplanes were old and peach between seats small."

Pros: "I liked nothing about my flight."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on a 10-hour flight. Crew was not friendly, almost rude. Seat space was VERY tight."

Pros: "The food! So much food that at one point they were bringing more things and i just looked at them like are u crazy? It was tasty and warm."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment worked."
Cons: "I booked a window seat but the seat I got had now window. I couldn't do online check-in."

Pros: "I love how comfortable they made everyone, they made an 11 hour flight feel more like an 3 hour flight....best airline ever for me and my family..... I will be sending them a Thank You card."
Cons: "There wasn't nothing that I didn't like . I love me some Turkish airline."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "Great comfort and Turkish airlines gave us (the passengers) an amazing experience :)"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "THE FLIGHT ITSELF WAS GREAT. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COMFORTABLE FOR A 12 1/2 HR. FLIGHT. MY WALLET FELL OUT OF JACKET AND WENT UNDER SEAT, AND THE MAN BEHIND ME HAD TO HAVE TAKEN $400.00 FROM MY WALLET BEFORE I NOTICED IT WAS MISSING...AND ONLY GAVE WALLET BACK WHEN CONFRONTED LEAVING PLANE."
Cons: "FELLOW PASSENGERS WERE NOT THE BEST. CREW WAS EXCELLENT."

Pros: "I liked it that I was able to check in online and choose my seat."
Cons: "My trip from Zurich to Istanbul would have been okay if it weren't for the screen that was not working. It did not work and I hated not having to do anything else besides eat and sleep."

Pros: "Good smooth flight, decent food, good movie selection."

Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."

Pros: "Entertainment was Okay, and that was the best of it."
Cons: "Customer service gave us false information about delays, almost missed our flight. The check-in agent had to call for manager. And the manager told us if we didn't check-in online, they wouldn't have let us board our flight. The seats were cramped, the food is way worse than it was before. I doubt that we will fly with Turkish Airlines ever again."

Pros: "Courteous staff.istanbul"
Cons: "Istanbul airport is dirty, bath rooms smell. Food m shopping is good"

Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"

Pros: "The service and the meals, even in economy class."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Pros: "Most important all flights ran on schedule. Food service and quality were excellent and a great surprise Clean and new aircraft I would travel Turkish Air again and recommend to other friends"
Cons: "At 6'3" I was a bit jammed up in Economy Security was a bit overdone. Initial screening X-Ray carry on bags, thru metal detector. After landing Zurich--Istanbul, again thru xRay and hand screening, then again at gate complete screening again. I guess better too much than not enough."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Their boarding pass listed departure time for boarding time which confused me. The staff in Istanbul is extremely unprofessional and have caused me to missed my connecting flight. I had to get a visa and waited almost 2 hours in line in order just to be able to reschedule my flight."

Pros: "Ticket prices were reasonable, warm towel upon entry, food was edible, comfortable seats, they give you an eye mask, slippers socks, toothbrush and lip balm. Which we received on all flights except this one (all flights were international)."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't personable on any of the flights. I'm 6 months pregnant and randomly get hungry. There are snacks like muffin available "anytime" On our long flight from Atlanta to Paris I pressed the button 3 times to see if I could get a muffin, but the attendant alert was turned off remotely and no one came to check on me. Thank God it wasn't some sort of emergency."

Pros: "great food"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "politely crew."
Cons: "food caused stomach pain"

Cons: "We missed our flight from Istanbul to New York. The gate was changed while we were waiting at the assigned gate. No announcements were made about the gate change. We ended up stranded in Istanbul. The Turkish Airlines representatives were very rude and not helpful at all. They told me that we needed to purchase new tickets. My 14 year old and I were in Istanbul, Turkey with no way home. After hours on the phone with their customer service and many repeated phone calls and many collect phone calls to the United States, my mother was finally able to secure new plane tickets for $2000 one way for us to return to the states. We were in the airport for 24 hours before we could board a flight to make our way home. A few days after we arrived back is when the terrorist attacks occurred. I have been plagued with flashbacks of our time in the Istanbul airport. I feel that Turkish Airlines could have done a better job at trying to accommodate us in a time of desperation. I have been reluctant to contact them upon my return and a friend offered to call on my behalf and was treated in the same disrespectful manner. I would hate to think that Turkish Airlines could be representative of the people of Turkey. I can't imagine that Turkey or the citizens of this beautiful country could treat visitors in such a fashion. I appreciate your time in reading about our personal and devastating experiences during our trip that was to have been the trip of a lifetime with my son."

Pros: "Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free."
Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Cons: "Once in Turkey (Istanbul ) I had to go to a Turkish Airlines customer service kiosk in order to ask some questions about by following flight. One of the ladies in the counter had to be the rudest customer service person I have seen in years. She talked and dealt with people as if they were an incredible annoyance on her life. She will even dismiss you without answering your questions."

Pros: "free large movie selection. good food with some Turkish flair. super friendly staff. power port for electronics. Istanbul is a very busy airport hub. This time, we had no delays, but we have before."

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul. We did not know the gate number until one hour before departure, because there were only 3 monitors in the area that we sat in and there are so many flights, so the flight did not appear on those monitors. Only the one main monitor in in the center of the airport is large enough and there are not seats in that area."

Cons: "Food has room to improve."

Pros: "Entertainment system and broad variety of international movies and music"
Cons: "Delayed take off"

Pros: "Service n presentation. On time departure n food auperb."
Cons: "Some entertainment screen not working."

Pros: "food, enterttainment"
Cons: "too small legroom"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Serve Warm food"

Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."

Pros: "New airplane was comfortable and clean. Food was just okay."
Cons: "We had to transit in Addis (connecting from Dakar) and the whole experience of going through the Addis airport, getting the voucher for the hotel, and going to the hotel was horrible: it took forever going through immigration and getting a simple stamp on the voucher (the latter an unsafe experience and time consuming, with hundreds of people piled up to get those stamps from just two people, crashing again each other, with no order, no lines). Somewhat there has to be a better way to manage this and make the experience safer and more comfortable to everybody. For instance, just enforcing to stay in line and organizing the lines would have saved everybody a lot of time and effort."

Pros: "Crew were very good. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Choice of movies could be much better."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and caused me to miss my connecting flight on another airline that had no other flights that day. As a result of the lack of communication and general lack of professionalism, staff refused to rectify the situation and take responsibility, and I was forced to stay overnight. Worst"

Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"

Cons: "Old aircraft rickety seats"

Pros: "Fast gate work."
Cons: "Lost luggage and the food and silent movie option (no headphones provided for overhead movie)"

Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"
Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"

Pros: "G"
Cons: "G"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the flight was smooth"

Pros: "Aircraft very comfortable, superb entertainment system. Crew friendly."
Cons: "Crew didn't go out of their way to serve...they did their job capably, but no more."

Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."

Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."

Pros: "Food and leg room were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was average"

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Not very clean Several used towels noted in seat"

Pros: "Service, the entertainment selection, just everything seemed perfect"

Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."

Pros: "Good crew, service."
Cons: "I chose a seat with no one in my row (because I knew the flight would not be full) and yet somehow two others got assigned to my row after. There was no need to cram us all into one row when the whole plane was empty!"

Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."

Pros: "The pretty ladies"
Cons: "Lost luggage and horrible food"

Cons: "Food horrible. Poor infrequent service, cramped seating, poor movie selection"

Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Your cheapo ripoff insurance wouldn't pay when I had to cancel due to terrorism threats in and around Ouagadougou. Is there ever a better reason to cancel a flight?!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"

Pros: "Great Price Excellent dinner in economy for such a short flight (1.45) Quick, friendly service"
Cons: "Entertainment System is a tad bit outdated on this particular aircraft (737-8) but it was a shorthaul flight and their long haul flights have much better option. \ My seat - although in the exit row (with plenty of leg room) was uncomformable"

Cons: "My phone was stolen on airport premises"

Pros: "all"
Cons: "none"

Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"

Pros: "The staff on Ethiopian airlines is great. Food was palatable."
Cons: "Boarding from the front and back of the plane is a terrible idea, especially when the gate agents allow most of the aircraft to board at the same time. Also, on flights longer than three hours, they should use a plane with more entertainment (bigger plane). It was cramped and uncomfortable both legs."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, airport staff doing a great job, cabin crew friendly, entertainment just okay."
Cons: "Poor variety of food, it's either take it or leave it! Make sure to order your food while booking or get ready to suffer!"

Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."

Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"

Pros: "Again, excellent service. Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Cons: "Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."

Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."

Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "Food and entertainment is very poor."

Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
