Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "Excellent friendly service"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."

Cons: "The trays of water could come around more frequently"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."
Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"
Pros: "After long takeoff delay, made up most of time to land less delayed. Bagge arrived more quickly than I EVER experienced a Hamad Airport."
Cons: "Boarding started very late so we knew takeoff would be delayed. Flight attendant woke me up from sleep to ask if I wanted breakfast."
Pros: "boarding was okay"
Cons: "BA operated flight. cannot compete with Qatar Airways, even if the ticket is a Qatar ticket."
Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "Excellent airline. Great experience. Easy. Professional. Efficient."
Cons: "I had to have the same food in both flights"
Cons: "On my printed boarding ticket provided by the Qatar airline desk at ORD, it only had my first initial of my first name listed. After waiting in line for an hour to get my boarding pass, I proceeded to security and they would not accept it and said I needed to go back and get a stamp or prove my purchase from months earlier (my confirmation email was not enough). Although I was able to get the stamp, this is frustrating as my name should have been listed (Sara) which is what I provided in my online profile when purchasing the tickets or the person at the Qatar desk should have realized this when providing me my boarding pass."
Pros: "Staff for the most part. Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Baggage loading was terrible. Way too much was allowed in the cabin. With numerous small duty free items placed overhead. I had to have my back pack blocking my legs for 5 1/2 hours."
Cons: "Providing hotel for connecting flights"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and aircraft was brand new."

Cons: "The guy on the second flight was a bit creepy"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and professional."
Cons: "There could be more legroom."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly with emirates again"
Cons: "Disaster from start to finish. Use qatar much better public service. And make an effort to get you on connecting flight"
Cons: "Handling and boarding at Schiphol was pathetic"
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."

Pros: "Personalized service"

Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The service and movie selection during the flight."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."

Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like"
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Pros: "Little better. Too bad this wasn't my seat for the longer flight. Quick flight."
Pros: "Lots of movie options"
Pros: "Boarding process followed at LHR #3 was well done and organized, made good use of passenger's time. Desk personnel at LHR #3 was professional, as was crew on aircraft into Dubai."
Cons: "No breakfast (had sticker on seat to wake up if needed) and ended up awake whole flight. Flight for LHR to Dubai did not provide breakfast although 1950 -> 0550 red-eye flight"
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
Pros: "Food was really good and they accommodated my gluten free diet with ease. Great movies and tv shows to watch!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the internet to work...not sure if it was my phone or their service. Seats don't lean back much and there isn't as much legroom as some other airlines I've used. Hard to sleep."
Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "Everything was very nice,, one of the nicer flights i have had in a long time and i fly often,, it didnt hurt that the flight was nearly empty,, so i had basically the whole section in the back to myself,, aside from that, the seating was comfortable and more roomy than others,, and the entertainment system was quite nice,, good sound,, larger hd screen and wide selection of programming,, also very convenient inputs for powering up"
Cons: "the bathroom smelled like pee and i was the first one to use it on the flight,, so perhaps some better cleaning maintenance and some type of air freshener"
Pros: "This two legged journey on Emirates was my first experience with this airline and the impression was an excellent one. Entebbe - Dubai - JFK went smoothly and comfortably."
Pros: "The food on Emirates is excellent, the cabin is classy and comfortable, and the plane is equipped with modern amenities such as WIFI and charging portals. The cabin crew were polished and professional and friendly."
Cons: "There were maybe too many announcements made throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not see on the website that in order to get Dubai Connect you were meant to spend a certain amount of money. I thought it was due to an eight-hour layover. I have done it on two other flights. When I arrived people had me running all over the place trying to get information on why I was not eligible. If I knew it was based on rate or it was clearer on the website I would not have booked the flight."
Pros: "The flight from Dubai to NYC was great"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "the best all"
Cons: "the best in all"
Cons: "on time, but bad connection experience"

Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly"
Cons: "Better seats and entertainment system As usual Turkish airline was late in departure"

Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Pros: "As usual the best"
Pros: "Great service, incredible food. To give it a quick one: we ate the fish. ON AN AIRPLANE. I never eat the fish on a plane, but the chefs were great. Everything we ate was exceptional. Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Pros: "Fantastic journey no problems at all thanks kayak....."
Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."
Pros: "Everything- hot moist wash rags & overnight kit were luxury touches."
Pros: "Well looked after from start to finish!"

Pros: "I like the food and the service plus the entertainment on the Telvision"
Cons: "Excellent 10.0 Feb 6 2016 The service provided by the airline crew was magnificent. I enjoyed the entire flight from my departure point to the arrival point. Turkish Airline is my to go airline herein henceforth. I will implore prospective travelers to give the airline a shot (try). I can unequivocally attest that the decision to do so will not be regretted."
Pros: "Service was excellent and plane very comfortable for the long journey."
Cons: "No vegan options. I thought I was getting a vegan meal that I called to request a month ahead of time and the flight crew told me they only had vegetarian. Needless to say my snacks were not quite enough to hold me for 13 hours."
Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."
Pros: "The flights themselves were fine"
Cons: "However, having a long layover in Istanbul airport was a problem as there are no seats available to sit it for hours. If Turkish Airlines wishes to continue to be a major travel hub they will need to cater to transit passengers."
Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food tasted great. They had some good movies I haven't seen yet. The flight attendants were constantly up and down the isles either giving you something or taking away trash. The leg room was sufficient."
Cons: "The customer service on the phone and in person was completely unprofessional, rude and a bit uneducated. They yelled at me when I asked them "is there anything yall can do to fix this?". And then in person I watched them get out of their seats and yell at this older woman."
Pros: "Crew needs to be more attentive and polite. One of the crew member passed me with out asking what to drink I waited until she comes back to tell her I didn't get a drink you just passed me she said ok what do you want . It took me by surprise her rudeness was un expected there was no apologies at all. This iwas my first time to fly with Turkish Airline. It is sad that just one member can influence the overall perception of the flight experience !!!!!"
Cons: "I hope this young lady get the proper training to be polite for your upcoming flights!!!!"
Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"
Pros: "The flight took off and landed as scheduled. Boarding was quick and without any hassle. Food was served with in an effective way, and in a friendly manner. Food and drinks were of a good quality and passengers were taken into consideration. Thank you very much."

Pros: "The staff from check in to on-plane service was very friendly and courteous and clearly did their best. The suppers were phenomenal! and the other meals were ok."

Cons: "Economy isn't supposed to be amazing but those seats need help"
Cons: "Would not refund my ticket or make changes. Turkey is full of terrorism and all Americans have been evacuated from this country and the airline would not refund me. They kept my money and robbed me."
Pros: "The staff was excellent - wonderful service except the people who let some dog owners on board without bothering to check that they were in their soft cases and not smelling up the plane and walking in the aisles when food was served."
Cons: "I wish the seats were just a little more accommodating of a normal sized behind! Hard to squish for 10+ hours."
Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."
Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Turkish crew members are usually very friendly."
Pros: "Lending was excellent"
Cons: "It was hot on the airplane"
Pros: "The same as above."
Cons: "We landed into Ataturk airport while a coup was going on! And no one from Turkish Airlines was anywhere to be found for the next 16 hours."
Pros: "The best"
Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"
Pros: "The flight was effective, on time, the service was very good. Good food"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the entertainment computer. I experienced a much more friendly one at different airlines, and they had a rich variety of content and games. Please also make sure that all staff is fluent with English - few of them seem either not to be communicative, or not confident to speak."
Pros: "Everything is high quality but the airplane interior. It's in need of some updating."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In general, service was of good quality. Crew very attentive. The film selection was outstanding. Routing was good. I would not hesitate to take this flight again. Seat are comfortable, although somewhat old-fashioned. In general, I think that this is an excellent airline, my choice for the future."
Cons: "There was some confusion in boarding, due to a gate change not clearly announced ahead of time. But I do not wish to overstate this, since I was satisfied in general."
Cons: "Delay, had to sleep over at the airport, no hotel provided."
Pros: "Great food, awesome service, great movies, and lots of space. I wish airlines in the States were this good. Nothing else compares."
Pros: "Everything! Voted best airlines in Europe for a reason!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"
Cons: "There was a dilay"

Pros: "a320 was comfortable"

Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants. Two meals served and liquid refreshments offerred multiple times. Entertainment options were great! And patient fellow passengers who listened to a kid scream for most of 9 hours."
Cons: "Paid for Wifi. Marginal performance at best."
Cons: "Not a lot of newer movies"
Pros: "The airplane too small the seat too tight"
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"
Cons: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Helpful, friendly crew. Will use Condor services again."
Pros: "See comments above."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The attendants were very respectful and courteous, most of them"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized, flight was delayed, baggage took over an hour to get."
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed. We had to hustle in Munich to make our connecting flight (so we thought) to IAD. It turned out the flight to IAD was also somewhat late so in the end all was well but we had less than an hour to make the connection and it was a bit fraught."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"

They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
