Pros: "Nice crew and good service"
Cons: "The other passengers are not very orderly when boarding. Passengers could have been more spaced out."
Cons: "The boarding to my connection flight failed due to unprofessional behavior of the airport staff. Likewise if many people. They did not allow us to board and closed the flight although we were on time"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent IAD to IST."
Cons: "The customs process takes too long to make domestic flights in time. I ended up missing my connection to Antayla because the customs line was too long, so I was re-booked for a later flight departing 7+ hours later. I think in the future kayak needs to ensure at least 2 hours for a connecting flight"
Pros: "In general service was great and professional"
Cons: "I honestly don’t any complains about the fly. It was an outstanding fly"
Cons: "same as before on luggage as it was directly sent to SFO The security check again was painful as it was just a transfer and we only had 1 hr in between, didnt think there are additional security check again for transfers"
Pros: "The airplanes were nice and the crew was wonderful!"
Cons: "I don’t like it when you pick your seat assignment and you get to the gate and all the sudden they change the seat number. Not Kayak’s fault but Turkish airlines could have done better"
Pros: "The service was nice and courteous"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable.I have traveled business class in other airlines for same price and their comfort level surpasses Turkish airlines by a huge margin."
Pros: "All fright attendants were so seriously working in any occasion. All pilots Of my flights were excellent, their taking offs and landings were very smooth. I was very comfortable all the time."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing- very pleasant and hospitable. There was great entertainment available which made the flight go quickly. The food was good. We did not realize we had to select vegetarian ahead of time, but having cheese sandwiches available made that easier. The small bag of toiletries that we were given was a very nice surprise."
Cons: "Carrying luggage down stairs after the flight was difficult but the flight team was helpful."
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Cons: "The airline lost our luggage and still has not been able to locate it. In this time with all the technology it is quite disappointing that it’s been over a week and still no response. We have conveyed the seriousness of the matter to the Airline but still no response. Very disappointing experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants are always helpful and very nice!"
Cons: "I have been flying Turkish Air quite a bit since 2011. I have noticed that on some shorter flights they are using newer planes with a bit more leg room, but on their longer flights (Like the one I take quite a bit from Los Angeles-Istanbul) they are using older planes that are horrific for anyone over 6' tall. I can't even sit in the seat without my legs jamming against the seat in front of me, and when the recline, I have to sit sideways. They are also very small sideways. I am a big guy, but not overweight, and barely fit in the seats. Their seats are definitely getting worse since I started and they ended their economy plus seat option, which at least gave you an option, for a couple hundred dollars more, you could have a nice seat. This is of course to make more money and jam more people on their planes without caring at all for the passengers comfort when you are flying, and it makes those long 12-14 hour flights miserable! Also, the planes are very hot when you board, which can be very uncomfortable, and they no longer give you a hot towel (As they used to) until the plane has taken off. They also do not serve a 1st beverage right away after take off (10,000'). Your first beverage is with the first meal, and then you are not served anything again until the second meal, whereas most other airlines serve drinks throughout the flight. SO you fly for 12 hours with 2 service times and no offers of drinks, snacks, etc. during the flight."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There should be more snacks during the long flight. Only one item was available and it was located in the rear of the plane. It was difficult for senior citizens to avail this service."
Pros: "Earlier the dinner was served early in the flight and light breakfast before landing in a 5 hour flight. They are miser now as just serve one late dinner after 2 hours in flight."
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Reaction of crew to passengers call needed improvement."
Cons: "Sloppy cabin crew at the time of embarkation. Bad entertainment system (horrible touch screen, earphones with loose contact), made a 7 hours trip an unforgettable experience. Food quality was marginal. A drastic contrast with the previous flight of the same airline company (but from Amsterdam to Istanbul), which was very good."
Cons: "Many liked the food. It just wasn't to my taste!"
Pros: "I love Turkish airlines, expecially when it's a connection flight to Istanbul. I am an American citizen living in USA and my wife and I travel to Egypt quite frequently. We have realized the big distinction in services when we travel from USA to Turkey VS Turkey to Egypt . The USA to Egypt staff was great, especially the ones at dulles airport."
Cons: "The only problem I had with that was the infant Bassinet, it was extremely uncomfortable for our baby"
Pros: "the entertainment options were plenty and the crew was very warm"
Cons: "The leg room was not sufficient"
Pros: "The courtesy to all the passengers was great"
Cons: "14 hours on the flight that's pretty much it you can't help that from the distance I had to go"
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."
Cons: "Very poor experience , no clear gate assignment prior to boarding , i missed this flight due to no gate info poping on the monitors. Bad customer experience , No manners no proper English, By Far the worst experience."
Cons: "The attendant open the door on me while I was using the restroom, I didn't care for that, he can see that the restroom is in use ."
Pros: "These middle distance flights have planes that have no personal intertainment screens in buisness class. The seats have limited comfort even though there is enough room. These planes need to be updated. Service was good and the crew is very friendly."
Cons: "There was a long line at the bus gate B60 due to a lack of personnel."
Pros: "Very bad meat and hospitality"
Cons: "Boarding was "like a bar fight. After business clase call, they didn't even call star alliance etc. There was h"
Pros: "Courteous staff.istanbul"
Cons: "Istanbul airport is dirty, bath rooms smell. Food m shopping is good"

Pros: "the crew were very nice, the plane was new and half empty and it arrived on time"
Pros: "I paid for WiFi but the service didn't work perfectly, I wanted to switch device,which you have to logout first. The button didn't work"
Pros: "The meal was good and fulfilling The cabin crew dressed like a chef is a nice and fun thing."
Cons: "Slow boarding to the plane, passengers don't respect the different boarding class rule and the staff was not enforcing it. Passengers were standing in the plane after it landed but while it was still driving on the runway and they were opening the overhead luggage compartments risking other passengers health with falling luggage. Also since passengers were standing and the plane was driving on the runway, they were not stable and moving sideways and one of them hit a sitting passenger in the head by mistake. The on-flight entertainment system didn't work from FRA to IST The staff did not do a safety check (check if seat belts on all passengers, seats are in upright position) prior to the plane flying Overall I flew with them 4 times (2 way ticket, with connection flights) and all flights were late to depart and eventually arrive late."
Pros: "getting off the flight"
Cons: "the men attendants on the flight were rude. 1 got half a cup of orange juice on me and never apologized. got passed up for drinks had to stop them and ask everytime."
Pros: "Even on short flights they still provided lunch and beverages, which unfortunately you don't get on such short flights (less than 60 min) with most companies. Still they maintain their service impeccable."
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "The food was great and the movie selection was also good"
Cons: "The person who checked me in did not give my boarding pass for connecting flight and also didn't ask me if I wanted my bags for my layover stay inistanbul. Good thing I asked or else I would have been without essentials."
Cons: "The fact the airline didn't compensate us even though we missed our connection flight"
Pros: "Really an excellent experience again, great crew, great flight."
Pros: "All was ok"
Cons: "To warm in the cabin"
Pros: "food was perfect. Staff on board wear good."
Cons: "checking in at Beirut Int. Airport as a first image for the turkish airline was fair. the lady on the counter wasn't friendly and responsive to my simple question concerning the seat. entertainment TOUCH mode of the screen wasn't working properly."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."
Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"
Cons: "There is a sthg in the food which was plastic.and it could be really dangerous for me.I showed the hostes and said they could change in flight from istanbul to izmir."

Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"
Pros: "Crew was amazing good friendly and seats was also very comfortable"
Cons: "The airline should make food better to make travelers satisfied thanks"
Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls."
Cons: "Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were helpful when approached."
Cons: "Crew should have been proactive in determining passengers' needs, etc. Film choices were poor-- lots of violence, few family-orientated options."

Cons: "Nicer more helpful crew. More leg space. More air temperature control abs cleaner bathrooms"

Pros: "Decent airline food, good entertainment options, pleasant and patient crew members"
Cons: "Crowded flight, marginally comfortable seats, meals served at weird times"
Cons: "Crew was very rude, ground or air. Our layoff was 11.hours nobody provide us food or hotel, we stayat terminal 3 for 11 hours. Seats were assigned to us was in the end of craft though we're 1st in check in. Food was rotten like dogybag with no class. Head phone were broken."
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "The food was not good. I had ordered low calorie and I got uncooked chicken and uncooked vegetables"
Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."
Pros: "Nice 777"
Cons: "Quality of the food very bad"
Cons: "Food, stewards are rude and unprofessional."
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."
Pros: "Lay flat bed was very nice"
Pros: "Crew exceptionally great ."
Cons: "Abu Dhabhi airport."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about Etihad airlines and will never fly again."
Cons: "Poor food, poor customer services."
Pros: "Same as above great crew"
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic long wait in bus"
Cons: "Very bad experience and crew was unexperienced"
Pros: "Good entertainment program, seat space in Economy class is fine, amenity kit even in Economy Class"
Cons: "Only one service (dinner after aperetive) and no soft drinks, coffee/tea before landing. Cabin crew has not been seen after the service and seemed to be bored by the job."
Cons: "Great staff"
Cons: "I have never been to an airline which will not even give you a can of Diet Coke"
Cons: "From Washington to Abu Dhabi was terrible small sweats less room for leg's."
Pros: "The flight was perfect the flight attendants was also up to scale thank you very much for the nice flight"
Cons: "The fly agency supposed to advise me a hotel inside the airport I asked to be inside the terminal so I had to cancel the booking in there and lose money because the hotel they advised me was outside the terminal not inside"
Pros: "Cleanness - friendly staff -"
Pros: "On our entire journey this leg had the friendliest crew. Surprisingly the A380 journeys had seats more cramped with poorer recline than this aircraft."
Cons: "The food definitely needs to improve. It is slipping back to the cliched term of 'airline food' Albeit extremely courteous and caring the crew seemed overwhelmed and understaffed for there were delays in providing drinks or a blanket (although they profusely apologised)"
Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with head rests and neck pillows Good food choice and no wasteage with plastic cutlery or portion sizes"
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "THere was no air conditioning! Seemed like the pilot tirned on heat. And the whole plane smelled."
Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."
Cons: "long walk at abu dhabi airport."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me. What I love most is their selection of entertainment. I have to say that in the 16-17 hours I flew with them (which I just came home from) I never felt claustrophobic, uncomfortable, or bored. I was in the middle seat. I love their flight progress and flight time. Their timing was very accurate. In fact, both flights landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "I didn't really dislike anything on the return trip. It was everything I expected and more"
Pros: "The staff were great. Comfortable."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "on time and clean"
Cons: "leg room for the flight from Auh to lhr is really small for me. Also the food sucks."
Pros: "Flight was good - smooth takeoff & landing. But delayed half hour in Abu Dhabi , did not make it up. Crew good but food was not tasty. My wife's specially ordered Jain vegetarian meal was inedible. Seat comfort OK but soiled by a supper in seat ahead, could not stretch legs."
Cons: "Entertainment choice for Indians limited and poor content. Unremarkable English movies & music. Quantity but not quality"
Pros: "On time / shedule ahead departure or arrival."
Cons: "Seating arrangement."
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time and it was uneventful - just what you want from a long journey."
Cons: "There can always be a little more leg room, can't there?"
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian sandwiches and don't substitute it with anything else. They should be extra careful with vegetarian options. Meal quality can improve a bit in general."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good, the company music is pleasing."
Cons: "They changed the departure time of my flight 3 times for no apparent reason. Upon calling them to inquire and confirm departure time, I received "confirmed" times from three different employee's that were all different. I spent a total of 88 minutes on the phone with them incurring long distance calling fees. Then, once settled, my layover went from 2.5 hours to 7 hours. They offered NOTHING to remedy this fault. Oy, first and LAST time I fly Etihad."
Cons: "there are bed bugs in the seat which has caused serious problem in my back (this is not expected and crew does not even basic medicine, i have to bear the pain till i reach the home. Also the entertainment is not updated which is 2 months older and not updates since."
Cons: "I paid $68 to pick up seats on airplane, but they didn't give us the right seat numbers that we wanted"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat but it was very cramped."
Cons: "Nothing except the airport"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding was archaic, seat pitch in for economy was tighter than I am accustomed, Could not purchase foo or drink because cash was not accepted & my credit cards were denied for offline purchase. No snacks or drink machines in boarding waiting area. Crew looked uninterested"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hectic boarding; airplane seemed very old"
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Cons: "Not even a free water/soda was offered, need to purchase everything."
Pros: "Crew on British air very nice"
Pros: "crew was lovely"
Cons: "older plane - air conditioning was dripping on one of our seats"
Pros: "Polite and funny crew"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks for money"
Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, courteous and very helpful. On time arrival despite a late departure."
Cons: "As a new user of the app I expected information to flow more fluidly. Gate changes were not communicated through the app unlike several other airline apps I use. My biggest complaint, if you will, is the requirements to pay for anything one wants on the plane. A soda, water, bag of crisps/chips, all for purchase. For the cost of the airline ticket, even our "no checked bag" ticket, you could at least afford to give passengers a can of soft drink or a water and inexpensive bag of pretzels or crisps. Seat was basically comfortable, not great but comfortable. Departed late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"
Pros: "Left a bit late, but not the airlines fault. Crew was friend, plane was ok."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Crew did their best while sweating with the passengers especially prior to take off"
Pros: "Level of information"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "It was a pleasant and smooth ride. The crew was friendly and responsible"
Cons: "There was only food and drink for purchase, no complimentary water etc. It was short trip and no problem for me"
Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"
Pros: "Only good thing was that British Air didn’t crash us"
Cons: "British Air overbooked the flight; I checked in on time but there were no seat assignments left. I went to the gate anyway to try; the gate attendant kept me waiting for a seat so long that the gate closed. He was not nice. His colleague booked me on a different flight to LCY airport (instead of Heathrow). But that different flight got diverted to Manchester. So the fast that BA overbooked cost me an extra 6 hours and $140 to buy a train & tube ticket to get back to Heathrow. The fact that there was not a single smile among the staff, and I had to argue to even get on the second flight, is inexcusable."
Pros: "Plane had to be de-iced which delayed departure time and then wait for landing slot."
Cons: "Heathrow need to build more capacity to reduce emissions and delays."
Cons: "Being charged for everything! Even a coke....really! Couldn't reserve a seat until 24 hrs. without paying extra ."
Pros: "The crew, all the way around were very attentive & courteous, food was great!"
Cons: "I was completely satisfied with this airline, would use again!"
Cons: "Absolute nightmare dealing with British cancelled flight and then having them rebook me with American, their "partner" company. Spent three hours this morning dealing with these two unprofessional companies and their lack of communication between each other."
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Pros: "Made the long flight feel short and very comfortable."
Cons: "It was fine, it’s just a flight."
Pros: "We left ahead of time"
Cons: "No gate due to early arrival which meant we had to wait for a coach which negated early arrival."
Cons: "The passengers on the plane were rude. No consideration for others when departing the plane."
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt difficult"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in counter make difficult: my cary on luggage is standard, they should know it."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled less than 12 hours prior to departure. The airlines switched our flight to one that ended at a different airport (where our car was not located). Called the airlines multiple times but only heard a message that they were "busy". British airlines was again unable to help us at the airport. We had to go to American to have them "hack in" and adjust our British airway flight itenerary. I will never fly British airlines again. They couldn't have been less helpful if they tried"
Pros: "Good, friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Flight was 60 mins late due to ATC issues at LHR and baggage loading problems at FRA. Also bus boarding at FRA on a hot day."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Didn't really do much."
Cons: "No food or beverage served on this 1.5 hour flight unless you paid extra. Not even water. Had to pay extra to select seats. You could wait until the day of the flight and do it for free. I wish I was informed of this before purchasing the non-refundable ticket. BA "customer service" was absolutely no help on this front and merely reiterated their policy. They are NOT a premium carrier and their practices have relegated them to bargain carrier status. I will not fly BA again."
Pros: "Very limited in flight entertainment"
Cons: "There was no food provided, so no need to rate the quality of the food that was not there"
Cons: "We couldn't enter the gate area until about 30 minutes prior. There wasn't anywhere else to wait so eveyrone nded up standing around the gate. Which blocked the hall to the restrooms and ended with a lot of people standing at a store front."
Pros: "That Pilot has to bring my buggy"
Cons: "Socking wet buggy Head rest in pices Rubbishy in the pockets Staff confused about checked in bag I purchase on different occasion than ticket, took ages to sort it out"
Pros: "Punctual, relaxing."
Cons: "No free refreshment, not even water."
Cons: "Why can't Germany load planes from concourse ramps instead of busing and so many stairs. Frankfurt airport is so poorly designed and how much of my ticket is for buses and bus drivers, etc."
Pros: "I was able to check in on an earlier flight which helped me to arrive an hour earlier."
Cons: "British Airways do not have access to a gate so always have to take a bus to airplane."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and boarding/ getting off were a breeze. I loved how much space the aircraft had inside."
Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Tight seating was fairly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly helpful airline staff. Plane slightly late leaving but kept up-to-date."
Pros: "Wasted nearly 3000$ Worst custmober service never buying ticket throggg you or just fly again They wanted a doctors note I sent it so many phone calls so much money spent on them ended up stuck in London sick without a ticket to return had to purchase a new ticket pay for hotel transport everything"
Pros: "Entertainment system and seats."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Great snacks!"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and no screen on the plane - a long way to catch up with Singapore airlines"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late and the lines for immigration were more than half an hour. Little legroom."
