Airline reviews

Pros: "Attentive crew (Busines cabin was near empty). Highlights the deficit caused by large occupancy A380 Business cabin. A380 business cabin has been economy classed to within an inch of its life, too few crew and those that are on duty disorganised and stressed. 777 crew ratio was 3 crew to 1 pax :)"
Cons: "Engine noise. Boarding in Dubai was a farce as called to gate even though aircraft was severely delayed inbound. Surly lounge staff didn’t help. Business Class gate desk ‘closed’ even though staffed as person was busy on the phone. Weird 2 - 3 - 2 layout means window and centre seats have to clamber over reclined neighbours. Seat width better than A380 and also less tomb like when reclined to nearly flat bed."

Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."

Pros: "Services and attention to detail"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "On time and Crew was helpful otherwise"
Cons: "We had to negotiate with passengers to get our children together as we had been allocated scattered seats It is very irritating to see that you need to pay extra to get your seats in advance which is like any other budget airline, not expected of Emirates"

Pros: "Second legs entertainment system was brilliant."
Cons: "To offer only one meal on a 7 hr flight seemed quite stingy, although the quality was very good."

Cons: "Delay in the take off and the plane was old .. No control from the crew on passengers behaviour which was disappointing.though the flight from colombo to dubai was excellent"

Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"

Cons: "Entertainment system at my place didn't work properly."

Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Was able to change my special meal for a regular meal in business class. Thanks for the great service. I do feel the service on the 9hr dxb to cpt flight was above that of the 4hr dxb to blr flight."

Pros: "The ice entertainment is great, from movies to series and such a vast choice to pick from. Was the only thing that kept me going on the flight."
Cons: "For a 8 hour flight the seats are not great. I'm only 5'7" and still didn't feel I had much room for my legs. Food wasn't the best but I've never been a fan of airplane food. Had a good pick of soft drinks."

Pros: "food wifi"

Cons: "No toilets in departure lounge! Delay of 30 minutes sitting with hardly any oxygen in cabin thought I was going to pass out. My last flight with Emirates."

Pros: "I felt unwell towards the end of the flight. The cabin crew could not have been nicer. Although they were busy they all found time to come and check on me, including the purser. Water and other drinks were given out regularly. They even provided afternoon tea with scones and cream!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"

Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."

Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"

Cons: "Having to go through twice as arrived in terminal C and departed terminal A What a waste of time"

Pros: "Great flight."

Pros: "The staff was very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The process incase of any delays was very slow. We were on the flight for around 24 hours. I would like to request some kind of remuneration for the inconvenience caused."

Pros: "Very professional and very good in customer care"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall good flight and experience. Service defines EK from others."
Cons: "Boarding a bit disorganized and seats are very cramped up."

Pros: "Top class air craft with top notch entertainment"
Cons: "Restrictions on carry on (no more than 10k) is a pain. Especially after u find out that business class is allowed 13k."

Pros: "A380 is really comfortable even in economy and choice for entertainment is great"
Cons: "Crew are great during standard service runs such as meal / drinks but outside of assigned duties trying to get their attention is almost impossible as the are busy chatting. Pressed the cabin crew call button and took over 15 mins for someone to respond (and only after I caught someone's attention walking past - for the second time, the first person took my request then never reappeared). This despite at least 8 crew members walking past me."

Pros: "Solid service."

Pros: "Barcelona to Dubai flight - the flight attendants were personable, helpful, and very courteous. In-flight service was frequent with many stops to check on the passengers of a very full flight. Wonderful and attentive service, even when juggling such a large number of passengers. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this crew."
Cons: "The flight attendants on the Dubai to Singapore flight were surprisingly unhelpful. It was a mostly empty flight and yet during this flight, there were very infrequent beverage service. When I activated my call flight attendant button, no one stopped by. This included at least 3 different flight attendants passing me, some more than a few times, and not once did anyone stop. After waiting for 10 - 15 minutes, I turned off the light and went to the galley part of the plane, only to find a group of flight attendants socializing. I requested a drink and it was handed to me without the attendant every making eye contact as the attendant still was facing and engaged in their conversation. This is not the first time I have experienced this on an Emirates flight so I think the staff training may need to be reinforced. Business class service on Emirates is quite good. But I fly both Economy and Business class. The experiences in Economy did affect my decision on which airline I generally fly with for business class travel."

Pros: "Everything is wonderful"
Cons: "Tight Economy Class seats"

Pros: "All was great ! Hope i'll be able to try the business class one day !"

Pros: "I like Big TV"

Pros: "service"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "No comments"
Cons: "No comments"

Cons: "The plane was very messy and not well kept throughout the flight. The fight attendants expressed levels of frustration with passengers as if we were bothering them. Me and the the passenger next to me lost picture during a movie that were watching and had to have our monitors reset."

Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food came before alcohol :)"

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "I and my friend booked together but we had to sit separate. All round trip. What the hell? The plane wasnt even full."

Pros: "I didn’t take the flight but there was no way to get my refund! No phone answer and no ticket counter!!!!"

Cons: "thanks for all from kayak"

Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."
Cons: "Ground crew was very poor at communication, no one warned us we would need a visa; we spent hours and hours queuing for what could have been sorted out in advance. Communication was terrible. The flight was delayed due to Pakistan closing air space. Turkish rescheduled but no real help in Istanbul."

Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Cooler temperatures in the cabin Vegetarian meal options More individual water bottles for passengers Flight attendants answering call light promptly"

Cons: "Fly another airline"

Cons: "Very hot"

Cons: "Boarding was late and they change the number of the gate without telling the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."

Cons: "Long delays, poor information, cold food and an entertainment system that wouldn't play films properly."

Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."

Pros: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "There are not diverse food choices"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two HOURS. When we got to Istanbul, our connecting flight to NY could not wait 15 MINUTES and instead left. We ended up spending 18 hours in Istanbul for the next flight. 1. The personnel at the transfer desk were rude and unhelpful when we asked questions. They seemed like they could not be bothered with our problems. 2. Turkish airlines did not even bother to help with accommodations, instead giving my wife and I a small bed to sleep in vs a hotel room. The only way to get a hotel room was to leave the airport, and we could not get Visas because we were American citizens. Turkish airlines was a very bad experience. Overall this was a poor experience, and I will not fly Turkish Airlines again. I will make sure my friends and family know that this is a poor airline with poor customer service."

Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."

Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."

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."

Cons: "Quietness and simplicity looks of high quality of crews presentation is a high class professional experience."

Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines .

Pros: "Boarding was no frills and quick, service onboard the plane was an orange juice, however, it’s a 45 min flight and didn’t expect much else. No entertainment onboard."
Cons: "This grievance has to do with AMM airport. If you have a connecting flight, you will have to clear customs with your hand luggage and go to departures, you will have to go through security checks again and passport control, our connecting flight was 35 mins from arrival and we had to run to make it."

Everything was on time and I had no problems with my luggage. I would happily fly with RJ again."

Pros: "Food ,service, clean"

Cons: "I missed my flight"

Cons: "The RJ fleet is in need to get new aircrafts and an upgrade of their protect is important."

Cons: "The leg room is really small so it is a tight squeeze for tall people like us. Would only recommend for short flights."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Neither of my bags arrived with the flight. One bag came a day and a half later. The other bag came three days later. A little bit of inconvenience, especially since they wouldn't deliver my bags. I had to go back to the airport twice to pick up my bags that they lost."

Pros: "Okall"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "The staff were nice and friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "There were weird issues. Although the plane was fairly new all three toilet seat lids would not stay upright meaning you had to hold them, which was creepy! There were no paper towels in the bathroom--only tissues. The food was poor and portions small even by airline standards. About 25 of us waited one hour for our bags to arrive."

Pros: "Good service, comfortable aircraft and very good info entertainment"
Cons: "Waiting to take off from Heathrow airport."

Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Security was slow and repetitive. Additional screenings at multiple extra places. One guy checking ID for long lines. Seats were not as comfortable as some. People were rude on ground side. Not helpful. Entertainment was limited but ok. Ext"

Pros: "Quick and efficient."

Pros: "Nothing much. Space between seats is very tight, no food, no drinks. Personnel was barely gentle."
Cons: "The flight was mediocre to say the least, but what really made the trip annoying was the fact that we had to pay $80 per each baggage checked. Hopefully will never have to fly with this airline again!"

Pros: "Boarding outside, but understandable Orderly boarding, many passengers. Handled difficult passengers quite well."
Cons: "Seats very small and almost no leg room. I am of average height and legs directly against seat ahead of myself. Transport from airport not well available in the airport, not the airline problem, but may be well to notify passengers. Probably most passengers know this, but new arrivals do not. Captain and crew mostly only knew Russian."

Cons: "Poor service. I was charged €50 for my suitcase due to my "lite" ticket. Overall luggage fee were higher than my round trip ticket."

Cons: "I was charged €50 for my suitcase because of the type of ticket bought (lite). I'm expecting to be charged the same amount on my way back. My total luggage fee will be higher than my ticket. No information was provided about the luggage fee when I purchased my ticket."

Cons: "Once again I bought a seemingly cheap fair and got a little 35 EUR surprise in the airport when I learned that checked baggage was not included. The nice lady told me that I could have done this cheaper on line on their web site. For the return flight I tried to, but could not. In fact, after I went through the online check-in process, and chose an aisle seat, I got neither a confirmation nor an error message. I arrived at the airport to find that I had not checked in, and only middle seats were still available. Somebody needs to work on their IT systems."

Pros: "The staff handled my complaint courteously."
Cons: "Why am I so often unpleasantly surprised to discover that my ticket does not included checked baggage?"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "People is Norberto kind."

Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "I tried to add a checked bag couldn't find anything in the website except how they were expanding their policy to give you more, showed up the first flight and had to pay, the return trip tried to pay online again and not only was there not a link the system wasn't working well and I got to pay more at the airport. Everything else was nice. Friendly service."

Pros: "I like www.kayak"
Cons: "to fly"

Pros: "Good Trip on a no Frill airline.... water was given other things could be purchased It was only a bit more than 2 hours so no big deal"
Cons: "We didnt realize when we bought the ticket that luggage was not included...... $36/bag You can probably register it for less if you do it in advance... We'll be looking for the return trip"

Cons: "Confusion over baggage cost"

Cons: "The flight was canceled and connected flight was postponed what increased the layover time from 1 to 7 hours. Moreover, the baggage was not included in the price and no information was anywhere about it. $80 more were charged during check in."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and connected flight was postponed what increased the layover time from 1 to 7 hours. Moreover, the baggage was not included in the price and no information was anywhere about it. $80 more were charged during check in."

Pros: "Short flight, so few amenities were provided. Only direct flight between KJA and TOF."

Pros: "My flight was on an ATR-72, so the boarding was pretty rapid due to the small size of the aircraft. Tea/coffee/water was served. The ticket was cheaper than any alternatives and the only direct flight."
Cons: "No entertainment or food was provided but that is standard for short flights. Seats barely reclined."

Cons: "Aircraft"

Pros: "Decent budget service provided. Paid food, including hot beverages and soft drinks. Most embarrassing was luggage fee 2000 rubles ($33) apiece, discovered at check in, kind of mentioned but totally undisclosed during purchasing, which meant Aeroflot tickets were definitely worth of consideration. Utair website btw have luggadge fee disclosed in contrary to kayak.com"

Pros: "Leaving the plane"
Cons: "Everything! If you think that flying Sprit Airlines was bad, wait until you fly UTAir. Worst airline ever. I'd rather walk then fly them again. Lesson learned, next time spend the extra $5 and fly Aeroflot instead."

Pros: "Airplane was clean, pilot was good, trip was quite short."
Cons: "The fact that luggage is charged separately was stated only at the registration counter, there was no any information or warning about luggage charges during online ticket purchase. So at the airport I had to pay extra 35€ for a 21kg luggage. It's not fear to hide this charge until the last minute."

Cons: "When I bought this ticket there was lowest price guarantee. I had to pay 2000 rub each way for luggage. Same tickets were sold on utair website for same price that included luggage! Including 4000 extra rubles I could get Aeroflot tickets! (Which is way better airline)"

Pros: "I have taken this flight four times now - and it is normally on schedule, unless the weather is particularly bad. Boarding, take off and landing are exactly as scheduled, which is very good - definitely better than expected."
Cons: "Planes are too warm - they keep the heat on the entire flight, and even the overhead A/C doesn't help much. Baggage - it is almost impossible, unless you book business or using a Russian issued credit card on the UTAIR site, to get bags included in your ticket. So you end up having to pay 25 to 30 USD for each bag, at the cashier - so it ends up being a hassle that isn't needed. And the counter personnel are usually not all that friendly... Very little other languages spoken other than Russian."

Pros: "No delays, smooth flight."
Cons: "Considering, the tickets aren't the cheapest, it was quite disappointing they only offered water free of charge. Even tea and coffee one had to buy."

Pros: "Yes, very comfortable."
Cons: "It’s Ok enough. Thanks."

Pros: "Liked the blanket, the nice leather seats. I enjoyed the chicken actually and the breakfast roll."
Cons: "This is something that has happened to me on every flight/airline I have taken to India. I am sat next to some slightly older Indian nationals who I find inconsiderate. This again happened on this flight, the 'gent' next to me continually elbowed his way into my space, kicked me, fidgeted, pushed against me continually. when I asked him to stop kicking me and to move his feet back to under the seat in front of me, he tried to silence me as if I shouldn't be talking to him like that or that I had no right to be annoyed. I was in pain, couldn't sleep. He encroached into my space so that he could give his wife lots of space. Selfish. I do feel it's a cultural thing. It doesn't happen to me when I fly to other destinations and travel economy. I didn't feel safe at the end of the flight when it was taxing to the bay. Passengers turned on their phones the minute we hit the tarmac and were opening the overhead lockers and left them open even the plane was still moving at speed. I thought things were going to come crashing out. It just doens't feel save and controllled when fellow passengers do not follow instructions. I worry what would happen if there was an emergency."

Pros: "Ground staff (check-in) not the happiest or most welcoming."
Cons: "Other airlines give a warm welcome. Getting to airport, plus the run up to a trip can be stressful. It is also where for me the holiday/trip begins and a smile, or even a 'have a good holiday/trip' said genuinely would really get things off to good start. I felt depressed."

Cons: "The seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "It was an easy and seemless process."
Cons: "The airport self-check-in and bag drop service was a bit chaotic ie not clear which line was for who etc"

Pros: "The ticket was not expensive, the carry on luggage allowance is 7kgs and 5kgs for a laptop etc with 23kgs check-in"
Cons: "The aircraft is getting old and looking a bit run down inside ie the seat back moved freely and hard marks in the handle - minor things"

Pros: "Crew were nice"

Pros: "Beer, Anna"

Pros: "Short layover"
Cons: "Airport staff cannot fix ticket issues Bag has been lost for over 2 weeks and customer relations office advised me to wait 3 months before any compensation is even considered. Had to pay extra $240 to get on the flight because on one was available to correct a ticketing mistake. Horrible airlines"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "By giving meal on three and have hours flight .not loosing my bag that has important heart medicine."

Pros: "I was late for the check-in but still was able to get on board in the nick of time"
Cons: "The food, most definitely!"

Pros: "All fine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All fine"
Cons: "A"

Pros: "no comments"
Cons: "it is better to mention in the ticket whether it is with or without baggage , it makes a lot of inconvenience when we see the boarding pass and then go to the counter to pay extra baggage . the passenger came with one baggage from Kharkov and on a return it is without baggage on round trip booking ?"

Cons: "Bag drop at Gatwick airport was dreadful!! Only one desk for the whole flight to check baggage. I was in line for one hour!!!"

Cons: "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: "Excellent crew service. Smaller aircraft so not as comfortable but OK for a short flight."
Cons: "Unfortunately, due to queue for anti-icing we were delayed."

Pros: "Crew very professional and provided a friendly and helpful service. Aircraft was clean and tidy. Food was to an OK standard."
Cons: "Frankfurt is a terrible airport to fly through, based on my last two experiences. This time the security was better but still very slow compared to other airports I use routinely. I could have easily missed the connection if I had not left the business lounge early to go to the boarding gate. I try to avoid this airport."

Cons: "Had a 18 hour delay as seen was "planned " by the company never will travel with uia ever again"

Pros: "Speedy service and quick boarding."
Cons: "One of the crew hit and ran the food cart into my knee. Didn’t even bother apologizing."

Pros: "We waited in line and on the aircraft after boarding for an hour because we were waiting for flight documentation or something??? This should not happen, everyone knew when the flight was leaving and the airline should have all of this taken care of ahead of time."
Cons: "Is not comfortable plane also old .I never had again Ukrainem airlenes"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Pretty much everything esle"

Pros: "Nothing Actually"
Cons: "That so far i did not get my bag !! And my bag is lost till now and i have no clothes or anything else"

Pros: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "That so far i did not get my bag !! And my bag is lost till now and i have no clothes or anything else"

Cons: "The flight was packed with Jewish people,unfortunately very rude and uncontrollable by the cabin staff,I could see there growing frustration,at telling them to sit down,or stay in your seats! This was relayed by conversations with the other passengers.No consideration for others!which overall ruined the flight"

Pros: "Good finshing immagraion tome and timaly flght"

Pros: "0 comma by the airline on what to expect and why"

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "I went to desk for check in and they told me l have to pay 15 euro because that l didn’t check in on line before l get to the airport. They wouldn’t check and give me boarding pass till l paid 15 euro. Horrible airline. After that they wanted to charge us for food and drinks on a international flight. Never again !!!!"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Computer wouldn't let me check in online so I had the pleasure to pay them for the inconvenience I caused them for printing"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The UIA crews were very kind and attentive, responding to passengers in a matter of time :-)"
Cons: "Nor meals niether snacks of any kind, it was understandable due to extra expenses and economical issues the Airline faces. But I am sinserely appreciated UIA, its kind crews as well as Airport Boryspil Airport. Wish them all the best and success! I hope see you all on board soon :-)"

Pros: "UIA offer a very comfortable seats, their menu looks great and the crew is one of the nicest I’ve ever met. I’m very proud that Ukraine has such an airline."
Cons: "I’m flying at leafs once a week and I always have a negative comment... but not this time! Great job!"

Pros: "Crew friendly I like Ukraine Airlines"
Cons: "Nothing compared to most Airlines I know"

Cons: "The worst flight ever! Flight assistants no friendly at all during all the journey and even the girls at the desk in Bangkok had no costumer service. Lunch was terrible, I left everything. I tried to order something on the menu but nothing was available. I won't flight with Ukraine international airways anymore"

Pros: "I didn’t crash."
Cons: "Service is appalling. I ant deal with a small shitty seat, four dollar water, and a 6 hour delay (for a 1hr long flight). But the service throughout was just reaching new levels of low. Negative stars should be given."

Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "Assistance was booked for wheelchair assistance Keiv fine ivano Rankin was told no wheel chairs available my 94 year old father it was very difficult"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful"
Cons: "Assistance was booked but not very helpful"

Pros: "average flight"
Cons: "baggage allowance does not exist"

Cons: "Both legs of the trip were delayed for more than an hour. One of the boarding staff was very rude and hate forigners ."

Cons: "100% rude and horrible"

Pros: "It's a point A to point B airline. There are no amenities but they do offer accepting 2 checked in bags."
Cons: "Outdated interiors. No space. On a 6hr flight, they offered food and snacks at a price. There was no entertainment. Then, my continuing flight which was 10hrs long, they finally fed us. Offered us food and snacks but still no entertainment. I really didn't like what they had to offer."

Cons: "First, the security took about 15 extra minutes trying to decide if I was the person in the passport and on my work permit. Then they brought in another person who eventually agreed that I was the one. The second was I spoke to one of the crew that I was hungry and I would not mind eating something and she showed me the menu. I told her what I would want and she said I should hold on...Then She served, I waited for about 2 hours only to be told they are out of food!"

Cons: "Impossible to check in at the airport, can only be done online!!! I normally only use my phone for phone calls. Had to go on the web site to check in then get an email sent to me with boarding pass to be able to put my bag on a check in computer!!!all of this while I’m standing at the desk. This is now rediculous way to travel, hope the airline does not go broke with people avoiding travel with this company!"

Pros: "Nothing. You had to purchase soda for$4usd. The bathroom's were old and broken down. There are no TV's per seat just the old ones every 6 seats or so on the ceiling. Where were 3 movies shown in 10.5 hr flight. Horrible food and experience."

Cons: "Old plane ,"

Pros: "Old plane"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "I've got Turkish Airlines business class seat instead of my UIA premium economy."
Cons: "I've got an E-mail about flight cancellation less than 24 hours before deparute, but their hotline was not working at all, so I had to book a seat with Qatar in advance to secure my trip. 8 hours before the departure I've finally got an E-mail from their representative with 2 possible routes to Bangkok to change my ticket too. It was a perfect trip with Turkish, but I lost 150 USD for Qatar cancellation."

Cons: "2 hours delay"

Cons: "There was a belligerent passenger who in normal circumstances would be put in handcuffs but the staff continued to let him get out of control. Made the passengers very nervous. I was disappointed how they handled things."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
