I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."
Pros: "The New York operation seemed much better. Our flight arrived late and was met by airline representatives looking to help passengers with tight connections. Arriving transfer passengers must go through Turkish airport security. Turkish security did set up an operation right at the gate. This both expedited things and relieved the stress of going through the process far from the gate."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The plane was an older Boeing 777 (it had no winglets) and I think the seat cushion was the original one. Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information."
Pros: "no clear on when to go"
Cons: "check in delay"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class, only the fourth time in 60 years flying!"
Pros: "Roominess of the business class seat and cabin, they provide a good seat and comfort is good for medium haul flights"
Cons: "The food, Turkish airlines dish up the same stuff all the time, lack of selection and in getting tired of it. Very middle-eastern fare"
Cons: "The lack of communication with the employee who had my boarding pass and did not provide the wheel chair. I waited in an area waiting, he moved to another area without letting me know. Finally I nearly made it to the gate, on the bus and on the plane. It did not give me the chance to relax at the lounge as I paid for a business class ticket. I felt not being taken care of properly and as expected."
Pros: "Excellent customer service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Efficient and clean with decent size seats but not to the standards of the MIddle eastern airlines. Good if compared to a intra-europe flight."
Cons: "Seats we’re tight and not what’s expected these days for a night flight over three hours Internationally."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. The entertainment. And the comfortability"
Pros: "Quality of Service"
Cons: "The people at the counter for boarding were not really friendly. the plane was dirty and in my opinion old. It made a lot of noice."
Cons: "We had to spend the night in Istanbul and get only on the next flight the following morning. TK airport (ground) staff that talked to us was antipathetic and it took ages to get any service. Looks like they didn't care we about the delay, nor they were trying to help us. Just kept saying we need to wait."
Cons: "Nothing beat"
Cons: "The breakfast was poor & frozen ."
Pros: "The service, food, convenience of a direct flight to Istanbul"
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat did not work (they offered to change my seat but I declined). Also the WiFi was spotty. However, I always enjoy flying with Turkish Airlines due to the excellent service and delicious food."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Departure delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "Smooth flight, great food"
Cons: "Other passengers."
Pros: "Best Movies and easy to go everywhere. Food voucher was available in case you have flight later than 6 hours."
Pros: "The airline crew was great . Service fantastik ."

Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."
Cons: "They lost my baggage. And i have all my medicine in it."
Cons: "Great service and on time all the way"
Pros: "Everyone was very welcoming and attentive to everything I needed during my flight."
Pros: "Once on the plane everything was fine."
Cons: "My first flight was changed. Only one email was send about that change. It got lost in some other emails so I didn't see it. But I did not receive any other update or reminder. So I had figure out how to change all of my flights from there to Kansas in the States. All with bad internet service and unhelpful costomer service. And having to deal with two unexpected long layovers. All that to say, sending periodic emails is important especially if the flight had been changed."
Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."
Cons: "Missed the flight bc they changed the gate for the flight without making any announcements. Told me I could pay a penalty fee in excess of $450 to be out on another flight even though same flights to Amsterdam where currently $213 online. When I told them about the price of the tickets online, the response of the customer service agent was "yeah, sometimes the penalties are high". He didn't do anything to try to help. The entire Turkish airlines team at IST is the biggest joke for a customer service team I have ever encountered in any line of business. I have never met a group of "professionals" that are so unprofessional, rude, void of empathy, and overall customer service knowledge than the turkish airlines team at IST. I will never conduct business with Turkish Airlines again and will ensure all my friends, family, and colleagues try their best to avoid them too."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Cons: "Old air planes, bad airport instantly, not attractive food."
Pros: "The food was amazing."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment didn't work on one of my flights."
Cons: "Delay in receiving luggage ,"
Pros: "Everything from check-in to coming back home was great. The most friendly crew, clean cabin and lavatories. The food was excellent and plenty. The best part was that I could check in 2 luggages per person in addition to the carry-on!!! Yes 2 pieces! Can't forget the little pouch they give you with slippers, socks, tooth brush kit, ear plugs, and the sleep mask for your eyes. By industry standard, the head phones are better than most other. You feel like a first class traveller in economy when you compare to a similar booking with other european airlines."
Cons: "Because of the fact that they are a part of star alliance I thought that we would be stacked like economy cargo as done with lufthansa, swiss, sas, austrian etc., but turkish airlines completely lives up to and is the star in that alliance, something their partners can learn from."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3 am. Not was delayed till 4:30. I had only 25 minutes to catch the other flight. I made it last minute. I asked the Turkish airline representative at the gate if my bag is on the plane. He said "yes". When I arrived to London I couldn't fibd my bag. I spent more than an hour looking for it since the employee assured me it was loaded to the plane, the person who was waiting to pick me yo had to pay around 15£ parking and wait for one hour and a half. I arrived without luggage. I have everything in the bag, my umbrella, jacket, cloths, pajamas, underwater, everything... the allowance that Turkish Airlibe said they will give allowed me to only buy a Pajama. I am totally NOT satisfied. I will not travel on this Airlibe again"
Cons: "Seat was small and squeezy. More variety for food needed."
Pros: "Spacious, nice, friendly, I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked good."
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("
Pros: "enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Cons: "I didn't go and was refused my refund"
Pros: "The attendants were courteous and proficient. Even when they were being elbowed as they walked past, smiling and friendly. I will try to fly Turkish again."
Cons: "I paid $100 extra for extra leg room. I was put right next to the bathrooms. All night long people were standing in line to use the bathroom. My extra leg room was taken by people standing in the space and actually stepping on my foot. Not worth the extra $100."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, attentive and helpful"
Cons: "The leg room would have been ok if the people were forced to put their chairs in the upright position during meals."
Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Cons: "the entertainment kept cutting in and out on itself, and i was listening to classical music and it simply didn't work to hear anything whole. annoying but not critical"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was excellent, seating just OK."
Cons: "I got to the gate 30 minutes before departure but they already gave my ticket to someone else. All this despite me coming from a connecting flight and having had checked in 24 hours in advance. Eventually I got my ticket back when someone else didn’t show up."
Pros: "Crew was super professional and friendly !"
Cons: "Little to no overhead cabin room to stow by my bag so had to place under my feet."
Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"
Pros: "Got an amazing pastry as a snack with tea, it was huge and really tasty!"
Cons: "Not much to say."
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "It was a new plane."
Cons: "Cleanliness - there was a pretzel and part of chewy bar between seats. There was no water service on this flight of 12 hours plus. There was no option of vegetarian meal either for dinner or breakfast. I did not want any special meal. There is always choice of vegetarian meal."
Pros: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."
Cons: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."
Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."
Pros: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."
Cons: "I have no flight to connect to."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The list of movies was poor"
Cons: "It was a different way later flight"
Pros: "Good service on plane seats weren't bad."

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were not too comfortable and the video screen was small."
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "Helpful crew, comfortable seats"
Pros: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"
Pros: "they did good job"
Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"
Pros: "Good gate agent, legroom was actually okay."
Cons: "Missing assigned flight (see previous flight comments), lack of crew service"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and food was not up to the mark"
Pros: "Updates form Kayak were much better than any info from Lufthansa"
Cons: "Overbooked. Offering € 250 to stay. Serious delay"
Pros: "I liked the process this time because I didnt miss the flight (unlike last time when lufthansa workers denied us to go to the front of the line at passport checkpoint) IN PRAGUE CHECK IN PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL!"
Cons: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Our flight from Frankfort to Munich was late. Luftansa sent a representative to our flight to make sure we and others from our flight got on to the flight to Charlotte. How awesome! Plane needs more leg room."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Pros: "LH is a good airline to fly. The 747-8 is very cramped in economy but an Airbus gave a bit more room on the return."
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pros: "Crew was professional as always"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"
Pros: "Custom in Chicago was the fastest I experienced for a long time."
Cons: "Food was questionable."
Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Cons: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Cons: "On the way to Amsterdam from Chicago Seat 27C, the entertainment consul was completely broken. NO VIDEO NO MUSIC."
Pros: "Everything worked without drama or misstep."
Cons: "The bus from the terminal to the plane was odd, but worked out fine in the end."
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Cons: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"
Pros: "The ice cream dessert"
Cons: "Old fashioned entertainment systems where you can't choose when you want to watch something you have to start watching at the same time as everyone. Flight advertised as Lufthansa was United both ways, there is a big difference between the service in both. United makes you pay to choose your seat like a budget carrier so everyone is angry about the seat they're in. Won't be flying them again if possible!"
Cons: "egyptair flight 985 no space between sets no social distancing very bad not comfortable flight"
Cons: "Stop feeding us bread"
Cons: "They won’t allow me to fly"
Pros: "Professionalisms of Crew"
Cons: "Food wasn’t that good and there could have been better entertainment options (more movies, TV shows). Internet was terrible."
Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."
Cons: "Food was not it should be for business class"
Pros: "Arrived on time. Baggage arrived quickly."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and had flies, which were really annoying. Food was mediocre airline food."

Cons: "Delayed 16 hours and counting. 300 passengers brought to a hotel and given little to no information. Only 2 egyptair staff members for all 300+ passengers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and accommodating."
Cons: "Actually I didn’t fly as I didn’t receive the confirmation email or the ticket and I had to call vayama who informed me that they don’t have any records for my booking although my credit card was authorized for the amount !! I had to do another booking fire test with the airlines due to limited time before departure!"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Rude crew. Cramped seating in n outdated plane. Repearing things in Arabic to someone who doesn’t understand doesn’t male it easier to understand."

Cons: "No good movies"
Pros: "Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price"
Cons: "Dated slightly worn seats"
