Cons: "Noise, attitude, boardinv"
Pros: "Horrible experience!!!!"
Cons: "1. Emirates has only one piece option. With Laptop bag weighing about almost 5kgs, you are left with just 2kgs which the carry bag itself would weigh. Not sure, how Emirates is getting away with this discriminatory attitude, while rest of airlines do allow -Carry on + a personal item. 2. There is no check on the carry-on weight at SFO airport. While in DXB, they entice customer to buy all duty free and then when it comes to boarding, you will be 'shocked'. No more than 10kg allowed. 3. You will be directed to read instructions before boarding. Then the corruption deal starts...read point 4 4. The man will say, remove anything in excess of 10kg or pay extra luggage, knowing very well, that people buy duty free at DXB. 5. Once you start negotiating, then the deal-making starts... 6. I managed it. More on Facebook review..."

Cons: "Wonderful service / airline"
Pros: "Excellent all the way."
Pros: "staff were organized and prompt"
Pros: "Everything emirates"
Cons: "When I went to the airport, the attendant at the check-in counter informed me that my reservation was cancelled and I had to purchase a new ticket."
Cons: "Canceled flight without warning. Terrible crew coordination to help with the issue. Not flying Turkish again."
Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."
Pros: "Service and attentiveness"
Pros: "Crew efficient and tried to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "On the runway, the crew upgraded a family with two small toddlers. They cried on and off non stop and walked back and forth in business class. I pay for business class so I can have some peace and quiet ! Crew informed everyone that they switch this family seat due to the safety of this family seat. I understand they need seats but crew should upgrade another couple with no toddlers and maybe a star alliance gold member rather than give this family with the toddlers the upgrade. No one wants to pay for business class with 2toddlers crying and up and down aisle ."
Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."
Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."
Pros: "The service of the crew was exceptional"
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. Plenty of movies, games, & tv shows available. Food was good - two full meals during 10 hr. Flight to and from Chicago. Seats, even in economy, were comfortable. Was very happy to learn that baggage would be checked thru to Denver from Athens, even though plane changes were made in Istanbul and Chicago. The two bags did not make the Chicago/Denver transfer, but were on the next United flight an hour later."
Cons: "Boarding process in Athens and Istanbul was confusing. Although boarding groups were assigned, none were used that we could tell. Just mass lineups, with little or no organization that we could see."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."
Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. We were served beverages and a tasty (by American airlines standards) sandwich on the less than 1 1/2 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, late and somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "The customer service was top notch!"
Cons: "Could have used a few more air conditioning vents"
Pros: "Purchase value"
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight"
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Leg room is too narrow and seat cushion is too harsh to sit on for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants, the movie selection is good. They also provide a nice pillow and blanket in coach."
Cons: "The plane was older, I had difficulty reclining my seat, the flight attendant had to help me, the seat across the aisle from me was broken. Several customers on the flight were crabby and difficult, I think all the crowding makes them like that. Just a fact of airline travel."
Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"
Pros: "excellent service, nice crew, seats are comfortable no complaint on that front Airport check in crew very professional attitude and cooperative I had no glitch whatsoever the whole journey starting in Los Angeles Luggage was promptly taken care of upon arrival"
Cons: "Honestly I have no negative comment to mention All went well I would fly Turkish Airlines again and again"
Pros: "Quick boarding , the crew was awesome and very helpful. Great service all around"
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they couldn't tell us how late it was , but thanks to Kayak knew it was 40 mins delayed."
Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude."
Cons: "i am allergic to cheese and there is no other food selection. Hostess skipped serving my husband meal through out the flight unless asking the hostess. We had 1hr 30 minutes to walk to transfer flight and pass through customs and checking points . we did not have enough time .most of the time we ran to catch up the flight"
Pros: "great customer service!!!"
Cons: "I ordered vgml (vegan meal) a head of time, been confirmed, but non of my most recent 4 flights had it:("
Pros: "Great crew! So efficient and friendly. I understand why it is, but security was over the top. Cabin was a big cramped. Super food offerings!"
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the first meal was great! Staff was friendly and the bathroom was VERY clean and nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the multiple, repetitive announcements. I would suggest that once the guest has picked their language preference on the screen, they then only hear announcements once in their preferred language. Also, our first transfer flight with Turkish allowed for us to carry our personal camera, but then on our main connecting flight we were told that we couldn't have it as a carry on. We would have stowed it in checked baggage had we been previously told. This was incredibly frustrating."
Pros: "Food from Cape Town to Istanbul was very tasty and juicy. Yummy."
Pros: "Great service on and off board. Great and very comfortable airplane."
Pros: "I loved the staff and the services provided. Food was excellent and the overall flight was just amazing."

Pros: "The staff, food, hospitality, & professionalism is 5 star. These guys should train every airline in america."
Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."
Pros: "Business class did have their own line."
Cons: "It did not matter where you were on the flight, last row or business class, you all boarded at once. It was a big free for all. And usually business class is given a given special treatment as soon as they are seated but it was not the case. The short flights are not worth the price of the business class."
Pros: "Great staff!!"
Pros: "I will always try and fly Turkish Airlines to Europe and Middle East from Miami- you all blow US carriers out of the water! Great flight attendants, great food and beautiful planes!!!!! Can you please have the CEO of United airlines fly economy from the USA to Istanbul... I think he needs to see and reminded how to run an airline LOL!"
Pros: "Good, entairtenment, service"
Cons: "These was a delay on my first flight, and i almost lost my connecting flight. The had us running like crazy on instabul airport, and the employee didnt even know which gate we were supposed to go. This is the second time i had the same issue with turkish. The seats were very narrow and it was impossible to fit on there. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I reported my bag was broken on arrival to Athens.. I reported it through fb but have not heardfrom you.. I only have the picture of the damage.. I did not see anyone to report this .. My flight was Sept 4 and arrived Athens sept 5"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The sears are so uncofortable. Leg space tragic!!"
Pros: "THE CREW"
Cons: "TIME FROM ONE TERINAL TO OTHER TERMINAL TOO SHORT"
Pros: "There was a terrorist bombing in the IST airport the day before, but our flight still happened, with no evidence of destruction at Istanbul."

Pros: "They had really friendly staff."
Cons: "The leg space between the chairs was really cramped."
Pros: "Nice onboard entertainment system"
Cons: "Extremely rude flight attendants. Did not care at all for customer service. Do not expect western standard service ! Service is 3rd world."
Pros: "The service is amazing Food is great"
Cons: "Boarding was interesting"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"
Pros: "I liked both the seat and crew service"
Pros: "Great crew, Food."
Cons: "Reduce baggage charges."
Pros: "Crew is excellent"
Cons: "Delays and we had to actually run for the connected flight"

Pros: "Fast gate work."
Cons: "Lost luggage and the food and silent movie option (no headphones provided for overhead movie)"
Cons: "The delay time was too much for no proper reason"
Pros: "Excellent seat"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Felt a bit like cattle because boarding was in a tight space and there was a lot of confusion as to who should stand where. Not sure why there were different zones for boarding because they didn't matter."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours due to a cargo loading issue in Mombasa. Communication from Ethiopian Airlines staff regarding the issue & delay was very poor. Passengers were becoming very anxious and tense regarding the flight, if it would depart, and the safety of the plane. Improved communication from the Ethiopian Airline staff would have gone a long way to calming the situation and reassuring passengers."
Cons: "stuck in the plane with no AC for 2h serve twice the same chicken hot hot hot plane arrived in the middle of the night travelling with a baby"
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We were delayed for extremely long"
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "Flight and crew"
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "My reservation seat was suddenly changed with no notification and apologise. It was really confusing situation."
Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."
Pros: "Liked the peaceful plane ride and room"
Cons: "Not being told why we were delayed or why we were going to be late. They told us over loud speaker and was not loud enough."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and the food served was cool"
Cons: "The turbulent"
Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Free entertainment! Wish they worked with gogo to purchase WiFi though. Bathrooms are roomier than other airplanes! I’m glad the crew gave me the sandwich even though I was sleeping."
Cons: "One of the toilet covers wouldn’t stay up so you had to hold it while going. Paper towels would be nicer than tissue paper. Wasn’t able to use my boarding pass from my phone, waste of paper. Ginger ale would be a nice drink. Didn’t find a list of their drinks in magazine, that would make it easier. Whenever I needed to use the restroom they locked us out a lot whether for head count or re fueling."
Pros: "Check-in staff at desk ,claiming not working for Ethiopian Airlines only providing service to Ethiopian Airlines therefore unable to in depth questions."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"
Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach. Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."
Pros: "Good food for a such a short trip to Nairobi."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing, gates changing and could barely hear through the PA system."
Cons: "There was a deley of 3 and a half h"
Pros: "Other than the luggage issue, it was a great flight."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket as ONE ticket--Ethiopian Air to Dubai, and then flydubai to Amman. Ethiopian Air wouldn't check my luggage to my final destination, so in Dubai, for a 3 hour layover, I had to go through immigration, exchange money, and take a taxi for 30 minutes through rush-hour traffic to a different terminal. That is ridiculous. Don't sell it as one ticket if the two airlines won't cooperate together."
Pros: "The flight was on time and they fed us well."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "evry thing"
Cons: "no thing"
Pros: "The food was terrible but it was somewhat editable. It could have just been because I was so hungry I could eat anything too."
Cons: "The staff was rude, the boarding was a mess, the cabin was at least a little cooler than previous flight but still very uncomfortable, the amount of announcements was absolutely absurd!!! It was almost an announcement every 15 minutes. And the plane played music (terrible music) for 45 min extremely loud after taking off AND and hour before landing. It was so awful and so loud you couldn't even hear your own entertainment playing from your own headsets. I understand music while boarding and de-planing but there is absolutely no reason to have that playing that long after take off and hat soon before landing."
Pros: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."
Cons: "We boarded around midnight and after supper, I am accustomed to a few hours of the lights turned off for rest. Even though I requested the crew said it was not policy and I should use the yellow mask (which sadly does not block out the light). I think a few hours off dimmed lights would greatly enhance comfort levels."
Cons: "The airline never gave us any status updates.Call center was helpless. Eventually bought a same day ticket at 5X the price on another airlines get out. before visa expired. Now they don't want to refund my ticket saying I am a no show..What a horrible airline"
Pros: "Customer service was great and the restrooms were cleaned regularly unlike some long haul flights where it's not the case."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Cons: "Hi, I have asked 3 members of the crew to get me a glass of water from the time I boarded the flight. It took 45 minutes for them to hand me a glass of water. I have to wait till they all got settled. Only when them to start the service they were able to give me some water. I was really thirsty otherwise, I wouldn't have to ask for three members. I think it's important that they respond more promptly and do a quick service considering the long flight we have."
Pros: "Most things were fine"
Cons: "I don't like the 787 dreamlike at all: it is not built for pax like me who are taller than average. I can hardly remember an occasion when any of the cabin crew smiled."
Cons: "allocated the worst seat on the plane despite choosing a different seat online"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "There were tons of announcements in 3 or 4 languages which really was so annoying. Staff didn't seem friendly, lots of confusion there. Plane seemed every old and run down. Short stop in Paris took forever."
Pros: "I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. It was clean and the staff made sure to make every attempt to clean the room. They gave 2 bottles of water each day. The flight on Ethiopian Airlines was smooth, kind crew and clean airplane. Airport was well lighted and had big sighs."
Cons: "This is what I didn't like, there guys there driving white cars or trucks that pretends to be taxi drivers. Don't use them. They are thieves and fake as hell. His name is Nasah, a guy from India, drives a white land cruiser. Please avoid them. Use the regular toyota cars that hat TAXI written on it."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Staff showing ignorance on "checking-in once for one trip", say from Abidjan to Blantyre. They kept me waiting but with little help."
Pros: "The service inside"
Cons: "At Addis the waiting room was so crowded and did not understand the announcemnets."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival - attentive cabin crew, excellent service."
Pros: "Great company. Good service. A+"
Pros: ".. crew was not friendly or helpful"
Cons: "seat were broken down and not comfortable"
Pros: "Brand new planes, or just in really good shape"
Cons: "The food and the legroom"
Cons: "If the crew would be nice to israeli people. And if the food was good."
Pros: "Loved the food in the business class and the crew was awesome."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, overcrowded. They at least should give priority for business class ticket holders, and have some form of boarding criterial"
Pros: "No customer service skills at all"
Cons: "Ukraine is great when it comes to taking your money, but when you have an issue or can't find your bag, they will not compensate you"
Pros: "Great crew. On time. Wasn't a full flight."
Cons: "No entertainment or free drinks, that is lame."
Cons: "When I tried to perform the online checkout procedure (as i did during the out going to Kiev and Krakow) for the return trip, I received a message that Check out procedure could not be completed do to issues with the country of destination (Unfortunately I didn't do a print screen on my mobile)."
Cons: "Seat was changed during boarding"
Pros: "I ordered a flight and a suitcase through the kayak website. I arrived at the airport saying that I had not ordered it. They take a high price at an airport on a suitcase"
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv followed and I had to fly to Holland to continue to Beijing. I also ordered kosher food and had to pay € 30 when the site was available for free. But in the end I was not given a kosher meal from the Netherlands to Beijing."
Pros: "What i dislike:i was looking for a baggage option and what i understood i have 23 kg allowed in this flight.On my way back i had a logagge total 23kg as i was sure i was permited.On the registration i was told i have to pay 1890 griven it is about 100$ CAN.I looked again on my ticked ans didnt see any note about i have to pay online baggage service 24 hours before.I had nobody to leave this baggage in kiev and my mom paid all for me.I am very upsed because when i was doing check in online i was looking for a rules and regulationg about baggage and i wanted to do prepaid but what i understood it was included.So in airport i paid double than it was online.I need my money back! Thank you Katarina Stolberg"
Cons: "See my previous comment"
Pros: "Food Comfort"
Cons: "No entertainment besides three screens in the cabin Delay when departing due to waiting for flight documents -> arrivedan hour late"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss the last but to MD. Had to stay in the streets for 6 hours and purchase new bus tickets."
Cons: "Their app wouldn't download on my phone, so I was unable to check in in advance. I had to pay 15 euros to get a boarding pass - absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "good plane, convenient rout for the cost"
Cons: "Extra cost at the airport, if the boarding pass had not been printed before coming there."
Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable. No complaints there."
Cons: "Boarding process was a nightmare. Treatment of handicapped passengers (my wife included) by the ground crew was disgraceful. Disorganized, curt, accusatory, and simply mean-spirited. Once on board, the flight crew had none of those same behaviors. However, a couple with a baby (sitting in the exit row just behind the cabin separator) wanted to set their baby in the attachable baby basket, which usually mount into the cabin separator. They were told the basket wasn’t on board, then that it was, then again that it wasn’t, and finally that it was a safety violation to have the baby there so they’d have to move seats (there was apparently no 5th oxygen mask for the baby in the center seats in case of emergency). They were forced to move to another row once in flight. The food was comparable to 1990’s food on American or Delta Airlines. Foil-wrapped mush, regardless of the contents. The state of the plane was pretty deplorable. A Boeing 767, it’s gotta be on its last legs. Beige tape held corners of the walls up. TVs at the front of the cabin played a recent film in far too grainy a format for a modern film. The sound was inconsistent and scratchy. All in all, it was panic-inducing, stressful, and poorly managed."
Cons: "THere was an unexpected extra charge for not having been able to do the airline check in through Internet."
Pros: "You charge for everything you don't tell.us about. You did sign in on the internet...12 dollar fine You have 1 check in bag....62 dollar charge You want a glass of juice ...3 dollars plesse .."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Counter lady would not give me better seat from kiev to yerevan statung that its fully booked, later i logged in online online to see that there are plenty of free good seats."
Cons: "We asked the one of the crew members when boarding if it would be possible for us to get seated together and we were told that the flight was full but when my when my partner got to her seat there was someone already seating there and my partner was asked to switch seats to accommodate the couple so they can sit together."
Cons: "The baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "There was no space for my hand laggage at all. Many people brought 2-3 big bags. Food was really bad. Not enough water. No entertainment . 10 hours in hell."
Cons: "Everything, including service, condition of the airplane, prices, food, quality."
Pros: "We got in early"
Cons: "Old planes."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with Ukrainian airline abd I haven't received anything from airline!!"
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "На обратном пути пришлось заплатить за багаж, зотя нигде в билете не было отмечено что багаж не входит. Я тщательно проверяла все опции при регистрации онлайн. Это ужасно, что авиакомпания не предупредила. Я не имела достаточно денег, хорошо что коллега помог."
Pros: "Boarding fadt and efficient"
Cons: "Packed plane with empty "comfort seats" that went unsold. Crew wouldnt let prople spread out. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Nice crew and efficient"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "This was one of those planes that has as many seats cramped in as possible. (3 window to aisle, 4 middle, 3 aisle to window). The entertainment system was a few drop down TV's overhead and a large screen 15 rows ahead. You could not hear the Pilot during his announcements."
Cons: "Flight attendant should smile and must be educated to say thank you and when giving the change to speak with costumer not to put on table !!"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and boarding excellent especially as there is advantages of being a Panorama member"
Cons: "Always a lack of space and flight hot"
Pros: "The service was absolutely great in biz class"
Cons: "Older plane the video quality was meh and no international wifi"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were one of the best I've ever seen."
Cons: "The business class seats was terrible."
Cons: "They lost my baggage!!!"
Cons: "I flew back on Arkia wwith my son. Unfortunately we were seated with 2 aisle seats instead of right next to each other as requested."
Cons: "The flight itself had no problems, but UAI has serious problems when it comes to checked baggage. A fee is required in order to check baggage, as with many other airlines. But the UAI method was complicated and required sending your payment information online without receiving back confirmation of receipt and payment. Because of this, in Kiev I was forced to pay (twice) to check in my bag even though I had already paid online, since there was no way to prove this and staff claimed they had no record of my payment. UAI needs to fix this now as I will not fly again if they cannot keep track of these simple issues."
Cons: "No entertainment, cramped"
Pros: "Athens to Kiev very smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Older aircraft with very tight quarters. Only water was free."
Pros: "Duty free"
Cons: "No change; ver very slow on board service; did not have things showing on the menu"
Pros: "Are these reviews seen my humans? Or just data mining numbers. Are you a human?"
Cons: "Hard to find a reason not to like. The coffee was 2 euro. Instead of free. That was disappointing slightly. Very positive overall"
Cons: "I would like to have a reimbursement because I was forced to check in my carry on beg without apparent reason and was charged for it $110 which is ridiculous nowhere in the world anyone charges for extra beg that kind of money. Please reimburse."
Cons: "Pretty hot in the cabin during boarding until engines start up... Crew was polite but unpleasant ."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Not charging for a small bottle of water would be nice."
Cons: "Staff are not friendly, airplane was old and seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "the chairs are very uncomfortable for a early morning flight.. do not recline. i am not big at all.. im 154cm and 60 kg.. the chairs killled my back and next... i just wanted to sleep."
Cons: "i tried to cancel. as you can see i booked other tickets from IST to DXB but could not get a refund for these tickets"

Pros: "The flight was very uncomfortable and dirty"
Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Free food and alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "There’s a decent amount of room for a budget carrier. No nickel and dime charges like some similar carriers."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back and felt tight width wise. Lots of busses involved."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No free WATER! Weight limit is ridiculous for a international flight. I will never travel with Pegasus again! I will try my best to spread the word on this airline."
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "Got to Barcelona eventually"
Cons: "One hour 15 min late, gate officers did not update, screen kept saying 40 min delay even after sitting at the gate for one hour. It was hot, humid, every one was sweating. Least they could have done was to offer free water after making us wait for one hour 15 min in hot weather."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Race car type no recline, no food included, overnight flight yet lights on board remained fully illuminated."
Cons: "Landing was very rocky"
Cons: "Pegasus cannot fly without a dalay of at least 1 hour !!!"
Pros: "Please return my money."
Cons: "Please return my money."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Oh wow there’s a long list: -flight was late -no food or drinks were offered -seats were dirty -plane was dirty -staff spoke very limited English -every single food we ordered was “sold out” -credit. At cpayments we’re not accepted -toilets were not clean I could continue but the above suffices."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Poor airline"
Pros: "I like to travel always travel with KAKA"
Cons: "Given old pound coins and old ten pound note as change. Then questioned as to 'what is the problem? Whats the difference? When ı asked fır nee money tjat iş legal tender.."
Cons: "Old plane, really crowded seats, the air crew doesn’t bother to clean the lavatories. Those who are working that is as the toilets up front were out of order..."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less."
Cons: "Almost on every other airline you can check using the self-check-in computers at the airport; on Pegasus you can't, which caused unnecessary queues at the check-in desks (both there and back)."
Pros: "Flight started late and even I was threatened not to be boarded and to be moved to a later flight (midnight) because "I had arrived late at the gate" which is twice absurd because: 1st I arrive slightly late - but still on time for the regular borading - only because the previous flight - operated by the same company was LATE 2nd the flight left 1h and 1/2 late, so my delay - if any - in coming at the gate was irrelevant"
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding."
Cons: "I've never seen so many young children on a plane. There must have been one child for every one adult. Worst of all, their parents didn't even attempt to make them behave themselves. And the crew just let the kids run up and down the aisles and climb on seats. What ever happened to "please remain seated with your seat belts fastened"? Additionally, when I checked in, I asked for a window seat, the agent nodded, and when I got on the plane I found I was stuck in a middle seat. It was the longest two hours of my life."
Cons: "Food not included in price of ticket. Food offered for a fee was very limited. But then again the flight was less than 3 hours."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "my flight from Rome to Istanbul delayed 1 hour so i missed my second flight to Athens and they asked me to stay at the airport till the next day waiting for free seat :( but i refused and i fighting with them .. then they found a free seat in the next flight"
Cons: "Plane was hot, ground staff were rude, airport outside of Istanbul is one of the worst I've ever seen."
Pros: "Way and take two taxi Please write in the mail In big laters the terminal"
Pros: "Desk personnel who checked us in spoke Not One Single Word to us in any language. We were kept standing in line to board even though the plane was late."
Cons: "The plane wasn't cleaned and empty bottle, used tissues and remainders of the meal served on previous flight were on our seats. People were not helped to stow carry ons and many should have been requested to check large carryon bags. They were out of beer even though beverages had just been loaded. Attendants could not clearly communicate the price of a beverage."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew, nice flight, nice take off and landing."
Cons: "Delayed for 30 minutes."
Pros: "Liked their flexibility and welcome agent was serving us."
Pros: "All was good but I thing thy need to give food with no pay 3.30 h fly thy need something free"
Cons: "I want to make change flight but they where not helpful"
Pros: "The seats are not narrow."
Cons: "I am guessing this company does clean their aircraft only once in a while. In both of my flights between Istanbul and Amsterdam, the airplane was not cleaned off of the previous flight's trash. When I was seated in my first flight to Amsterdam, my tray had a lot of stains of food and drinks. Not a pleasant sight! In my flight back to Istanbul, I had to travel looking at a former passenger's waste, such as a used napkin tissue, stuck to the handle of the seat, and a chocolate package. I also have to say that the sinks of the bathrooms do not drain properly, so you, actually, cannot leave the place clean for the next person. All in all, this company definitely needs to work on the cleanliness of their aircraft. Thank you!"
Cons: "It's the worst airline ever, delays (NO EXCUSES), non-comfortable seats, very bad customer experience..."
Pros: "Was first to check-in and received exit-row seat with its extra leg-room."
Cons: "Exit row seats do not recline .. so could not lie-back on this overnight flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, flights have a low bar for comfort and food. The seats were fine and I slept through the flight so I cannot comment on the food but everything was clean and the staff was polite. The style of the aircraft is what shocked me. It seemed modern and almost like they hired an interior design person for style not function."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. But hey, that happens with flights"
Pros: "I was lucky enough to have the seat next to me free, so I was comfortable during the flight itself"
Cons: "The ground service was really bad and even insulting. I was a little overweight and the girl at the counter was very rude, and eventually made me through away snacks I was keeping for the flight. Also, the weight limit is ridiculous if you're travelling for more than a weekend (I went on a 3 weeks trip with camping). On the flight itself there's nothing provided, even when I asked for water they charged me for it (no option for just a glass of water)."
Cons: "Ticket agent was short with us and was bothered hat she had to check us in and questioned our flight. We had a cursing drunk guy in the boarding line for 20 minutes with no staff anywhere to help the passengers he was harassing. we left the airport late and heard horror stories from many other passengers about the lack of customer service."
Pros: "Delay for one 1.15 hours causes losing our connection in Istanbol,resulting waiting for another 7 hours to catch next flight.."
Cons: "Respect your flights and people time.."
Cons: "After the experience with the Pegasus flight from Kuwait to Istanbul I didn't expect anything hence was not disappointed. Right before the boarding was finished the boarding lady came into the plane looking for me, checking my passport one again and even taking a photo of it (with my consent). She left with no single word of explanation. Once again: this is a joke but definitely it's not customer service."
Cons: "not direct fligth"
Pros: "it got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The organization at the airport was a complete mess. I could barely understand the crew member's language skills. To be fair I don't speak a lick of Turkish but I made my best efforts to try and be attentive and still could not understand. Thank God I didn't check any luggage because who knows if it would have reached my connecting flight."
