Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

It used to be there before. When asked the staff is very politely responds on what is going on but the rest of the passengers do not know what's going on. Wonder why the staff do not follow the seating process by zone as mentioned on the boarding pass."
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"

Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worse flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."

Pros: "The level of care given I required wheelchair assistance to the aircraft."
Cons: "Being woken up at 4am for breakfast, when I asked not to be woken up."
Pros: "I loved the business class seats and the beautiful crew that attended to our needs. We would do it again. I didn't get to try three good much as it was a night flight. Ability to recline for sleeping was wonderful. The extra service at the garuda desk at denpasar airport was fantastic."
Cons: "The garuda business class lounge at denpasar was disappointing. Food was not fresh."
Pros: "Check in at Perth Airport extremely helpful. Husband has health problems. They offered priority boarding and luggage. Priority was not a priority at all at Denpasar."

Cons: "I didn't like food options on the way back....."
Cons: "Garuda played loud “music” on arrival so we couldn’t watch the entertainment system. Getting onto the flight was horrid with long long long wait on the bus to go from terminal to airplane. Food was ultra salty and dreadful."
Pros: "Smooth flight on time including lunch service. Good entertainment system. Friendly attentive crew."
Cons: "Low quality food. On arrival in Bali walked a long way inside terminal down corridors and up-down stairs without anyone guiding disembarking passengers and without signs guiding us. We even passed other passengers in the halls boarding their flights. So disorganized!"

Pros: "Excellent and plentiful food."
Cons: "Limited storage in business class seat"
Cons: "I purchased 3 legs of a trip on-line and tried daily for 50+ days to make a seat reservation. Occasionally, a screen would appear that stated a fee would be charged. I had no problem with that and was prepared with my credit card to make payment only to be told "oops there was an error" and the transaction could not be completed. I called the Garuda contact number in the U.S. twice and was told there was nothing that could be done from the US and I would have to take care of it when I arrived in Bangkok. I probably will never fly Garuda again so it really will not be a problem."
Pros: "Staff was great, and plane was nice. Entertainment options very good."
Cons: "Didn't like you can't use your phone to read. They make you completely put away. Not impressed by food options."

Cons: "The chicken dish was a disappointment q"
Cons: "Way cramped"

Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "3hrs late"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good and generous. Also nice to have snacks and small soft drinks available in the back at any time. The entertainment system had a good collection of movies."
Cons: "Seats should have a USB port for charging devices. Podcast selection was poor on the entertainment system and usually only had one or two episodes. Because podcasts are often free (or can be licensed cheaply) and require little storage, system should have last 20 episodes of the best 100 podcasts."
Cons: "Everything - no crew or pilots so delayed. Then engineers on the plane so delayed. No in flight entertainment as broken - plane appeared to be from the 90s as no way to charge devices. Over 2 hours late and the plane was so old we felt like we were going to break up on landing. Terrible experience"
Cons: "We came from a week of 45° heat to air conditioning with misting capability, very impressive, loved it. But l got very cold, my own fault didn't a ask for a blanket quick enough."

Pros: "Snacks and the drinks are good. Boarding are pretty smooth."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast are not too good. We waited for long period of time for the luggages."

Cons: "Did not know that we had to download entertainment app So consequently no inflight entertainment Pack in like sardines"

Pros: "Excellent in-flight service"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food and cleanliness was good. Pilots communication was accurate and helpful."
Cons: "We were travelling with an infant. Although we had requested for crib/bassinet we didn’t get one. To add to the anxiety, we noticed that none of the bassinet seats were allocated to parents with infants. There were at least 3 families with infants and lots of children due to school holidays. But we all had to make do with our cramped seats. Maybe Qantas can plan this better. It isn’t so difficult as they usually know how many infants are travelling, in advance."
Cons: "The plane required the note book to view current movie but the note book has to have the app installed before take off. It was not properly draw my attention in advance via e-mail or text messages. For such a long flight, Qantas should have a better plane to server this route. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was great..easy check in for a techno dinosaur like me."
Cons: "Was not impressed with the seat armrests...but it was my first time on the dreamliner...usually fly airbus and sleep like a top !Would also prefer not to have to do customs till I reached Adelaide but thats just a minor quibble."
Pros: "Staff, seat (exit seet)"
Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."
Pros: "Punctual flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The iPads for the entertainment system were cumbersome. Initially they didn't work for the whole cabin and the FAs had to reboot the system. They were also finnicky to operate. Also, needing to stow them for take-off and landing was a bit cumbersome. It would be much better to use the traditional fixed screens."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "The stewards were good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight. Horrible"
Cons: "1. Food option ran out quickly 2. The row I was sitting in had limited leg room (61)"
Pros: "Crew were generally friendly."
Cons: "Food was appalling. Told I had no choice and then what I got was inedible. Wine selection very small also. Two toilets for all of Business Class - always busy, super small and really substandard."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Food was a improvement luggage transfer to connecting flight great a"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Never went, why would you not know that?"
Pros: "The on boarding process"
Cons: "The plan was in very poor clean conditions. The seats were discussing to sit."
Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"
Cons: "Flight was canceled after 8 hours of Rebooked flight included an additonal stop, as well as overnight layover. Qantas made no attempt to give have better flights or offer any vouchers for the trouble (they provided the bare minimum of hotel, but no additional perks)."
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific. On board was also very good. Attentive and courteous."
Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, good food, great entertainment- a slick operation was very slick. Not like the old days"
Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."
Cons: "I left my jacket on the plane and didn't notice until I'd gone through customs (about 20 minutes after leaving the plane). There was NO way to contact Quantas or go back or do anything to get my clothing back. No one at the airport had any suggestions for me. The airport phone that dialed Quantas was only for frequent flyer point inquiries. I have now been trying for a full day (three phone calls with zero helpfulness) to see if anything can be done. I understand that I made the mistake of forgetting my items but the 17 hour flight left me a bit spacey. I am super frustrated."
Pros: "Flight ran on time Cabin staff good"
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for normal sized person Food choice poor Maybe seat backs could be fixed in place (as in the US)"
Cons: "Way too cramp even for airplane standards. When food was served, it’d take at least 30 minutes for the flight attendants to collect rubbish, and since the seats are so small and I can’t keep the tray table open without pinching my spleen, it was really terrible. I paid extra for an aisle seat and was told there weren’t any."
Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."
Cons: "Old aircraft (737) let’s down a good company and frequent flyers."
Cons: "The dinner meal was dried and pretty disappointing as was the media selection in coach vlass"
Pros: "Nice airline with lots of room for a very long flight. Seats next to me were empty so I could lay down but unfortunately a bad respiratory illness prevented me from doing that. But still comfortable. Nice variety of food."
Cons: "All good. Movie selection could have been a little better maybe."
Cons: "Change the crew they were rude"

Pros: "Flight arrived on time."

Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces. Seats were packed together very tightly. Given the lack of space, better to fix seats to only recline a little."
Cons: "Foot rests in economy - better ventilation options airflow"
Cons: "The plane was late to fly. All the passengers were in, and we were ready to take off, but we kept sitting still for 30 minutes for no reason. Though the plane was not late at the end, as we landed on time."
Pros: "Overall the flight experience was very good"
Cons: "I was soooo upset that the check in person when I was about to board the plane couldn't help me to change the seat number. Why is so Hard? Just switch numbers with other people and tell them the changes. US flight do that why Turkish flight doesn't!! Most of people fly alone, its that easy."

Pros: "Flew JFK to BOM -business class and back. Very impressed. Excellent service, food and punctuality."

Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Cons: "Movies are not very new, i was asked to clear security again at istanbul gate after going to bathroom but i guess that makes me feel safe even though was inconvenient"
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "Friendly checking in staff. Easy to us and good variety movies."
Cons: "Short leg-room, squeezed chairs, air stewards too busy to remember to follow up requests, Less than enough choice for non-cheese food-type. Less than clear English command."
Cons: "It wasn't great experience as we missed the flight back to UK. They lost my husband wheelchair and we did missed the flight. They Redbook flight which was three hours later, so missed our tax home as well. We haven't received any apologies not even offer a drink. DISAPPOINTED"
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."
Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"
Pros: "Fantastic journey no problems at all thanks kayak....."
Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Very attentive, even in coach. Amenities were good. The food was adequate to good."
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard. Still, the legroom wasn't any worse than a domestic flight."
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."
Pros: "Well looked after from start to finish!"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
