Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"

Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient, entertainment options are good and crew is quite responsive"
Cons: "Pitch of the seat is bad for tall passengers at only 31" and on older aircraft the touchscreen is atrocious."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and kind."
Cons: "The check in at MXP took us a lot of time and there was no defined line for people to wait without other people can pass them. Some how there is people who stand in line for 10 minutes and others for 40 minutes, the ground attendants didn’t really cared about it."

Pros: "Screan for every passenger to play"
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management. No care for customers."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "Turkish is always consistently excellent"
Cons: "I liked everything. They are very accomodating towards passengers with special needs."
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent on both flights light , fresh and tasty. The seats were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. I was very happy with Turkish airlines."

Pros: "The first leg of my trip was good."
Cons: "Pegasus first changed my 2hr layover to 24hrs then cancelled my second flight entirely without informing me. I was unable to rebook an alternative flight as they require the vendor, pricline to sort it out and priceline can only communication is email. So maybe in a week they'll sort it out. It is a totally ridiculous and irresponsible situation for these businesses to create. I had to buy a whole new ticket to reach my destination.

Pros: "The price"

Cons: "Not much"
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.

Cons: "Almost one hour delay to board and take off!!!"
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: "We did an error in booking the return date, & found no point of contact to change the date"
Pros: "Firstly, Overbuggage limits were put into practice with a mindset of just to f* the customers and consequently almost every single passenger has to end up paying at such overated fees that were equal to a level of a business ticket of any well known first class airline company.I , myself, had to pay 450£ in total for the ticket , just because of 34 kg of a luggage weight though 20 kg of this amount was included in the ticket. Sirs, if you really will only take this complaint as just to watch and say that this was a company policy then i will definetly never choose your services either again.Also, from the bottom of my heart, i will never feel tired to share and spead around this nasty experience of mine on each and every social media occasion , when i will have a word to say. Within only one flight on that day ,the total buggage revenue of the company was equal to a sum of 23,000 £ in total, despite the plane was ridiculously abit bigger than a small box. Sirs, Pls rethink over what i said. This is far beyond to accept and fit into any int'l trade rules.17£ fee for 1 kg !?? Best Regards"
Pros: "The seats were not too tight and the food is not extensively expensive"
Cons: "No Internet access at Istanbul airport which isahugh issue nowadays!"
