Cons: "I liked everything!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

If your customers are lots of indians, maybe a reminder for hygiene and picking nose, the man next to me drove me crazy from picking his nose and i told him not to, bath room door they leave it open, limit the indians."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, if you like who is next to you"
Cons: "Food was the same going to Dubai and coming back, so if traveler didn't like it then too bad, will be starving both ways."
Cons: "In Doha, when changing flights, one must go through security at gate. so any water purchased IN airport was confiscated. not a problem since plenty available on board, but time consuming."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "comfortable seats. Flight duration was good. Layover was little longer. Overall good experience"
Pros: "The entertainment was really good. The movie options were good. It was really nice that the movies were free. The pilot did a nice controlled landing and take off"
Cons: "too many little children"
Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficiently carried out, considering there were hundreds of passengers"
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for a variety of reasons and sat in the plane for 2 hours before taking off. That was difficult for everyone."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."
Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."
Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."
Pros: "Great business class seats with lay flat seats, attentive staff, great drinks, wine, food, recent movies and lots of choices."
Cons: "No separate pre-boarding area for business and first class. Beginning of boarding wasn't announced"

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."
Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"
Cons: "Usually I have enjoyed the food but the food on the return flight was not palatable."
Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."
Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"
Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment options could be better"

Pros: "They magically appeared with water when I got thirsty and were all great. Veg entree from Hiltl good but a little surprising. Baked apple slices on top of mac & cheese? Sure, why not.? And 2 chocolate bars this flight!"
Cons: "Again could not check in online., or at self-serve kiosk at airport. General complaint to all airlines: You can do better with boarding efficiency."

Pros: "Boarding was on time. Staff very courteous. No complaints at all"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed of all the delays and changes to the flight. The food was excellent and served at appropriate times. The entertainment system proved enough variety for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves on the flight. The agent seated our entire family of four together in the middle section, which was convenient for all of us."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane was very cold. Both myself and all my children struggled to stay warm, even with the blankets provided. Is there a way to increase the interior cabin temperature? I also wish they had allowed families with children to pre-board the flight."

Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"

Pros: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants, good food. I felt safe throughout the whole travel."
Pros: "Very nice flight back home! Comfortable seats (Great receline - almost too much for your neighbors), great food, lots of entertainment, etc. Flight attendants were nice. They left snacks, water, juice and soda out in the galley if you were in the mood for something. Bathrooms were clean. Overall I rate this flight a 9/10."
Cons: "The seat reclining in front of you made it very hard to get out of your seat and into the aisle without major clumsiness and disturbing your fellow passengers. Also the headphone jack has the old fashioned 2 prong. So you can't use your own headphones without an adapter if you only want to listen out of one ear the whole time."
Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no plug-ins to charge electronics."
Pros: "smooth, professional, comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive. The check-in person was willing to check to see that I had a reclining seat. Friendly and accommodating attendants good wine offered in economy, water offered several times during the 9:30 hour flight. Pilots changed Flt altitude to accommodate for turbulence."
Cons: "Very little not to like on this flight."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were excellent, and the crew was pleasant and helpful. The small extras were delightful - i.e. warm cloths at the end of the flight! Overall, I think Swiss is a very good airline."
Cons: "On a long flight like this, the seating is still too cramped. We are not large people, and nine hours in those seats is difficult, even with considerate 'neighbors'. The seats are just too close together. This is an airport comment - Deboarding to a bus, then a walk to the train/tram, then security, then another walk to the gate - we barely made our connecting international flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Long wait for baggage at destination"
Pros: "Professional. On time. Attentive. Great movies. Overall great."
Pros: "People were friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was little confusing"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and helpful. We were on a newer plane so there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment made for a long flight."
Cons: "At the moment I bought the tickets, I got in contact with SWISS in order to book the seats and a baby bes for a small baby. However, I was told by the contact center that it was not possible to book seats (not even buying them). I have also tried to do it online, without success. One day before departure, I called again and got the same answer and was told to book seats and baby bes during the check-in at the airport. At the moment of the check-in in Dubai, I was informed exactly the opposite: that I should have requested it via contact center or online up to 48h before the flight!! Personnel at the airport was very impolite. Inside the plan, the crew was very nice and helped us to have seats in front with a small bed for the baby."
Pros: "Great entertainment, great food, great flight staff, very comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "We left late."
Cons: "Better choices for food"

Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Pros: "Clean and new planes, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible delays and schedule for no reason, nothing wrong with weather in either direction"
Pros: "Fact that there’s a flight available to get me-from a to b, Crew were friendly-great, cabins clean."
Cons: "Expensive, Delayed flight, unable to hear and understand boarding announcements, No WiFi, and a magazine that caters to the top 5% of passengers. Then to top it off a lost bag and over 2.0 hours spent either on hold or awaiting a call back to resolve issues with my last bag-totally unacceptable"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive the entertainment was good. Every thing else was pretty disappointing. The bathrooms onboard were pretty Dirty.

Pros: "small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "respectful size seat"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very good. Very pleasant."

Pros: "Everything was excellent . The food was good The crews were friendly courteous and professional. The planes were well maintained and comfortable. Everything but one thing was excellent"
Cons: "The one thing that I didn’t like is that I have a disability and cant walk very well so I requested a wheelchair and assistance to the plane. Everywhere the service was impeccable except for Nashville I never did get the wheelchair and had to walk to the gate My back hurt me for most of the next 24 hours. In my own country I was treated the worst."
Pros: "direct flight from IND to CDG!"
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"
Cons: "I was near the bathroom.. stank a bit"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "I do not fly and took my first flight in eight years on aDelta flight. They are partners with KLM. We were late leaving SFO due to traffic..no fault of there’s. I just missed my connecting flight and they have booked me to leave a day later. I was also given a room at Marriott. I appreciate their service and the entire crew from check in to landing. I am now a fan of Delta as well as KLM."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight."
Pros: "Flew into bad weather event with thunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes. The flight was relatively turbulence free, flt had only one attendant in the cabin however she was able to serve beverages and snacks asks made sure everyone was comfortable. Can't thank Delta enough for the professionalism of their crew, great service and communication, and for getting us home safely. Thank you!"
Cons: "Made us pink tag carry on bags on flight deck. Had to retrieve bag from baggage claim after flight. My bag landed on the belt completely open, clothes and laptop hanging out bag onto belt, bag was damaged, zipper broken with holes in the fabric, bag was soaking wet! No one at airport able to assist with a damaged bag claim. Very disappointed in the Baton Rouge airport and lack of available staff to handle baggage issue."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
Pros: "Love the hospitality and the staffs kindness"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"

Cons: "Entertainment wasn't that good. Small screen, headphone input didn't work on my seat."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "Should have weight limit for people taking up one seat. I was squashed with her hanging over me"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
Pros: "free tequuila"
Cons: "norte americano gringo scum from hell usa terrorist pigs"

Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."

Pros: "Pilot was operating nicely, temperature was acceptable,"
Cons: "Cabin crews should pay more attention to elder people,"
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Pros: "had a medical emergency mid flight and the crew was fantastic and accommodating."
Cons: "Security lines for US departure way too long. Turkish Airline needs more people to speed up process."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Good service, friendly and hard working flight attendants Nice gift bag with toiletries"
Cons: "Head pads of a seat don't go low enough for my low height. Provided pillows helped though"
Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"
Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"
Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."
Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"
Pros: "crew, fod, entertainment was great"
Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"
Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."
Pros: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Except that in the same day I had two flights with Turkish Airlines and both of them had a delay."
Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"
Pros: "am very satisfaction with my flight, Food was excellent .also the service to.I am so happy I chose kayak"
Cons: "I could not figure out how to get a vegetarian meal."
Pros: "as above"
Cons: "as above"
Cons: "I stayed in Istanbul Airport for 16 hours with no hotel or even a meal."
Pros: "I didnt receive my baggage."
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: "Good food and plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped."
Pros: "The crew in Nigeria were very helpful. Hated the food but hey plane food is always bad in economy. Loved the inflight movies"
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
Pros: "Lending was excellent"
Cons: "2 hour departure delay."
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Cons: "Crew seemed harried, and even ignored me at times."
Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."
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: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."
Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."
Pros: "Clean, efficient."
Cons: "Inexplicably, food choices ran out and the crew were basically like tough luck...no explanation, aporigins or anything. My fiance who didn't eat meat was left eating bread and crackers."
Cons: "The flight was late by over 2 hours and we missed our onward flight to San Francisco. At Istanbul, Ataturk Airport, Turkish Airline did not provide a Visa although they gave hotel and boarding passes for next days flight. At Istanbul, Ataturk airport it was a nightmare for us, as senior citizens. Why should we buy the Visa when the flight was delayed which is no fault of ours. Of the 4 automatic e-visa machines onlyEv 1 was working and there was a long queue. In between the machine stopped working for a long time and no one was there to assist or restart. They gave our boarding passes for the next days flight and their responsibility was over. We had to wait for over an hour to get the hotel. Overall it was a bad experience."
Pros: "Everything was good"
