I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive.

"Extremely slow boarding caused the flight to be late 40 minutes. Missing the connecting flight"
Pros: "It was clean. The aircraft was new, well maintained."

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: "I am a disabled passenger. Turkish look after me well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good 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: "The movie options and quality of the screens was excellent. That's what got us through the flight."
Cons: "The food was horrible and served at odd times. The people around us smelled really bad so we had a rough time. I know it's pout of the airlines control but it really made the whole flight difficult."
Pros: "The service was very good as always with Turkish."
Cons: "Seats are not spaced enough. It is not big enough for a 6 foot 3 male caucasian."
Pros: "Overall trip was really good."
Cons: "Management of time excellent. Plane went on time. Staff on checking in or in the plane were polite, pleasant, professional and available. Timing of delivery of luggage also was fast."
Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Business class seat was flat but slanted."
Pros: "Your crewsom"
Pros: "We were fed and offered drinks, given blankets, pillows and complimentary travel kits, issues with flight changes and other questions were answered quickly, ticketing was a breeze, the flight crew was extremely courteous, and flying back with my electronics was covered with professional care of my equipment and certainty that I wouldn't miss my flight."
Pros: "Entertainment selection, USB chargers"
Cons: "Snack Like Mac and cheese not very good. Overall food better than most airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants greeted on arrival. Prompt with service. Good attitudes."
Cons: "Seats not to comfortable but can't really change that without upgrade."
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: "Crew was excellent needs more room in front of the chairs specially when you are on a plane for 10 hours"
Cons: "Too tide in front of the chairs"
Pros: "I am a vegan and they had delicious vegan food for me and vegetarian food for my daughter."
Cons: "That the plane was not full and we could had better seats if we were made aware of that fact."
Cons: "Great service and on time all the way"
Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"
Pros: "Great food; plenty of room to stretch out (we flew business class)."
Cons: "The service on the flight from Houston to Turkey was much better than it was from Turkey to Houston. For one thing, the flight attendant never made up our beds on the way back to Houston. For another, the sound did not work at my seat, so I was unable to use any of the entertainment. The flight attendant kept trying to give me different headphones...it wasn't the headphones that were the problem!! He never really addressed the issue or coordinated a possible seat change (even though there were empty seats in business class)."
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."

Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Cons: "Have to unload Plane Flight git exchanged without my approval"
Pros: "Clean airplane, food was better than the typical "pasta or chicken""
Cons: "Entire group waited to board at makeshift gate. No place to sit and minimal climate control. No word from the airline about when we would board or what was causing the delay. Very poor communication from Turkish Airlines overall."
Pros: "We liked the cost of airfare and flight times convenient. We also like the onboard TV and wifi."
Cons: "The food on the way back was bad. My wife's was still frozen, which grossed her out, it was ziti pasta. My pasta was crispy raw. The worse part was temperature of plane. It was too hot which made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "Super friendly crew! Great amount of entertainment on board. Good food."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Food quality degraded compared to early years. I have been seeing the very same food for couple of yours- tasteless bland food did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Movie choices plentiful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost an hour while passengers were on board the airplane."
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."
Cons: "Leg space is horrible!"
Pros: "Passengers are not polite."
Cons: "It was delay in Madrid for 1 hour, the next flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "The crew made it an awesome experience! Flight was on time, even early!!"
Cons: "There is no entertainment except for Business Class. Would be nice to watch a movie to pass the time."
Cons: "They lost our bags and the bags of every other passenger that connected via Moscow to get to Tel Aviv. We flew from jfk but this affected fliers from European origins as well. Horrendous experience at 11:30 pm to fill out lost baggage forms which took 2 hours. Not worth the headache to save a few $."
Pros: "Nice crew and lots of good food, even in economy"
Cons: "The seat is incredibly small. A very tight fit for 10 hrs"
Pros: "Helpful and pleasant crew, comfortable sits, good choice and quality of food and drinks, even of short flights"

Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "They are to strict with the luggage size and the weight"
Pros: "Everything nothing"
Pros: "Service on Aeroflot is good -- helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had several problems with our reservation. Our tickets on Kayak.com were sold through airfare.com. We received an email from aifrare.com confirming that we purchased two round-trip tickets. But we did not get seat assignments, and the confirmation number we received from airfare.com was incorrect. We only found out about the confirmation number when we tried to contact Aeroflot to get seat assignments. But contacting Aeroflot online was problematic. Instructions there would send us to screens/options links that didn't work. So, we called Aeroflot. They gave us the correct confirmation number over the phone, but sent us back to the website to get seats. And the website again was problematic. We did eventually get assigned seats, and we did make our flight from the U.S. to Moscow. But then our return flight was also problematic. We could not get seat assignments until we went to the airport for our flight home. Aeroflot then told us that I did not have a reservation. Eventually Aeroflot did recognize my reservation, but then told us that it did not have any seats together for my husband and me, unless we paid for an upgrade."
Cons: "There’s not enough room for boarding all of the passengers. No sitting only couple seats. All people boarding that flight in Moscow were standing crowded in corridor!"
Cons: "Late,uncomfy seats,crews were not able even to smile"
Cons: "Late,uncomfy seats,crews were not able even to smile"

Cons: "English is a second language..."
Cons: "The staff is rude and the food is not fresh"
Pros: "Speed of boarding and staff"
Cons: "I still have not received my bag. Three lavatories in the coach class were out of order. When we landed in Washington there was zero coordination and information for what will happen next."
Cons: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "The flight was mostly older Mainland Chinese people that tend to be a bit rowdy crowd. In this case so much so that they did not allow to sleep or watch a movie comfortably. Several of them stood when landing even before the plane had slowed down. I understand that these people do not know the rules but I think is responsible fo the crew to enforce the rules. I have had the same situation flying Delta and United and in both airlines every time something like this happens the crew comes to put order. This is for comfort and security of other passengers."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable for sleeping, lights were kept on until Landing, Dinner being served was disruptive. Difficult to sleep on this red eye flight."
Cons: "food need to be improved, very little space for legs, between sits !!! Unfortunately, quite disappointing."
Pros: "The food was good. A lot of space to stretch out and sleep on economy."
Cons: "I can't get over how much Delta/United/American airlines are worst in the industry. Aeroflot, however cannot compare."
Pros: "I am alive."
Cons: "Both flights boarded and left late, my bags got lost and the food was terrible."
Cons: "2nd meal didn't have a non-diary menu selection."
Pros: "Entertainment, excellent. Many, many options. Crew was very good, attentive."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. Too close together, very cramped leg room for the people in my party - 5 ft. 6, and 5 fr. 10. They seem to have added a special pillow thing for your head, with folding things on the side, for sleeping, but the additional pillow made your head go forward, very very difficult to sleep. Could not use a travel pillow as that made your head go forward even more."
Pros: "Didn't take even 10 minutes between the landing and the opening of the aircraft door – really quick."
Cons: "The boarding was 25 min delayed."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great"
Cons: "it was sooooo hot. i was sweating through my clothes. Also the staff seemed annoyed everytime I asked for something"
Cons: "The flight was good overall, but the boarding crew in Moscow (that was after a transit) didn't let me take my guitars up on the airplane, different from what I agreed on at the first flight, where I paid 200 USD to take it with me on the plane. The flight attendant was very nice and agreed to help me and take it on the plane."
Pros: "Good Movies"
Cons: "Didn't like my Carry On being checked then lost Didn't like the lack of support and terrible response time Didn't like inability to contact by telephone Didn't like the general unfriendliness of staff Didn't like the food served on the Airplane Didn't like the Crew"
Pros: "The food was good for an airline. Possible the best I've had. Roomy and comfortable"

Cons: "When I booked was given 2 free suitcases BUT when I got to airport was only allowed one and charged an extra $100."

Cons: "One hourand half late for my luaggae to arrive to amestherdam"
Cons: "Check in queue at BHX very long. Delay departure from Moscow. 5 hour wait at Moscow. Excess baggage charged. Could not choose seats for Aeroflot legs of the journey. Lost luggage."
Pros: "Exselent servis !!thank you !!"
Pros: "Nothing - worst experience of all my travels yet"
Cons: "I think I cannot think even one thing that I like about Aeroflot. Staff behavior was very very rude and unprofessional - didn't know how to talk to customers. In flight food special meal Asian vegetarian was the worst food I had. Air hostess were very rude and unprofessional, brought me non veg meals instead despite of special requests. Both of my flights were delayed which made me miss my connections delaying my trip by 1 day and missing my other connections which made me incur a loss of more than $200. The remuneration I was given for meals was enough for just 2 chocolates a meal."
Pros: "The food and the staff were great. The movie and TV show selection was excellent."
Cons: "The seats were too small and too close to each other. I couldn't even use the recliner because It was too tight. The announcements (all 17 of them) kept on interrupting my shows - very annoying. And they're in both Russian and English. Why can't you just do it in a notification style manner vs pausing everything on the screen. I don't care about skymall and I do see there is a turbulence - no need to shut down my screen to announce that."
Pros: "convenient flight times, very good service"
Pros: "crews were nice. smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was bad!!"
Cons: "no help on check-in, asked to make sure luggage was on board as my previous flight had been delayed and wasn't sure if luggage was on. The staff was extremely unhelpful and rude."
Pros: "service and crew"
Cons: "boarding in moscow"
Pros: "The flight was very good. Thank you very much."
Pros: "Boarding was on time. There have a good crew."
Cons: "Although almost every thing was fine with flight, I would only complain regarding their luggage management. The reason for that is the late arrival of my luggage, two days later of my flight. However, I think I am lucky at least not losing it :-)"
Pros: "On time good service"
Cons: "The audio system was not working despite system restart"
"Breakfast menu must be improved along With orange juice"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "Crew good and friendly"
Cons: "Very old fleet from Muscat to Kuala Lumpur. The entertainment very limited compared to Emirate Airlines"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"
Cons: "Take care of hygiene & control work under pressure."
Cons: "Again entertainment system was horrible with flickering screens"

Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"
Cons: "Chairs are small"
Pros: "entertainment, good movie choices"
Cons: "here is where they get you, yes, super cheap flight and 2 checked bags included, but you are only allowed 15kg a bag! you have to buy 20kg bags!"
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "On time departure. Nice lounge"
Cons: "the QTY of food not enough. Chiken and fish dise was left too fast."
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Cons: "First time in my life that the airplane food was cold. There also was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Pros: "It was only a short trip from Doha to Muscat to Dubai but it went very well. The flights were on time, the plane was comfortable and the staff were very helpful."
Cons: "My only concern was that unless I caught the 4.00 pm flight I had to wait until the 7.30 pm (4 hour layover) or 9.30 pm (2 hour layover) flights from Doha both of which do not get to Dubai until 3.30 am. I could not catch the 4.00 pm as it was a work day. The flight timings are not good."
Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."
Cons: "Slow check in at Kathmandu"
Cons: "Problems with our extra legroom being allocated at the check in desk as oman employ a 3rd party called option town to handle this process. Numerous broken tv screens on the aircraft preventing passengers from watching tv. Losing our baggage for over 2 days. Creaking tv screens prevent passengers from sleeping. Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."
Pros: "On time, Comfortable seats Good food"
Cons: "Rather cold in the cabin"
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarking. Polite crew members."

Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."

Cons: "The food was really sad"

Cons: "1. Waiting in a closed doors transfer bus w/o AC 15+ min just in front of the plane because it wasn't ready for the passengers. (Unaceptable) 2. Flight attendant unable to pick an organized trashbag politely given to her(unaceptable) ; next time all trash will be left in the seat like all passengers do."

Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. This is such a short flight I normally watch series. Their selection is not the best. Boarding in Muscat Airport is always a mess."
Pros: "Okay legroom, a 787 Dreamliner really is an excellent airplane though so it made up for it. Entertainment options were excellent, easily kept me occupied throughout."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but can't complain about the meat or veggie option."
Pros: "Nearly all staff very professional and trying to 'be the best'. Generous with drinks."
Cons: "Bizarre incident with FA over meal. I'm on left aisle of middle row of 3 seats. Another customer is on the other aisle. Middle seat empty. Both meal trolleys moving up aisles, ten seconds apart. FA leans over me and asks the man on the other aisle what he wants to eat and serves him. I'm busy putting netbook away so my tray table will be empty. FA 'forgets' to invite me to eat. This is an Arab airline???! In 49 years of air travel I have never seen such a thing. I sit there wondering what on earth is happening. Weeks later I'm still bewildered."

Cons: "Food was unexpected from Oman air."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "This is an international flight which didnt have an in seat entertainment. They didnt announce anything and this is the only airline where they serve the food without even checking if you want or not. It was a mid night flight and i was fast asleep after take off. They woke me up and just threw the food on the table and walked off. Another first of its kind is they serve solid food first and followed by drinks so even if you are thirsty, you have to wait. All juice will be served later. and the most uncomfortable old seats. Probably they use different flights for different sectors and to India, they consider every passenger as just "cattle" class and use the worst flight they have. But no other option. There are few direct flights and this is the only choice. So have to fly with them again unfortunately."

Pros: "The check-in and in-flight service were up to expectations. Friendly, efficient and professional"

Pros: "Kind people"
Pros: "Once on the flight the flight crew were caring and accomodating."
Cons: "Kenya changed my flight to two hours later 18 hours before I was to leave. Making me have a 10 minute connection. Then after an hour in a airline office they promised to hold my connection. When my flight landed on time, they did not hold my connection. So they changed my flight and didn’t follow through on the fix. We would now miss wedding activities and business meetings. Then my partner got sick and they refused to taxi us to hotel for the night but take a bus that leaves every three hours. Her sickness got worse and there was a Kenyan airlines doctor who evaluated her at the airport after waiting 40 minutes laying at check in with her crying due to pain. We had a medical release from the doctor saying she needed extra space to lay down but the check in manager refused to make room for her saying the flight is full and she would not upgrade her to accommodate the medical release because we had an economy ticket. My partner looked so bad that the flight crew considered kicking us off but eventually made the space for her to lay down and were helpful on the flight. This is this disgraceful and the worst experience I’ve had with any company."

Pros: "The nice landing."
Cons: "Food which was the same as previous flight. We, at back, were told there was only the vegetarian option left for breakfast. We all declined. Later we were brought non-vegetarian food ie had a 'poached egg' on it. This was marginally better. Also, I couldn't use 'entertainment' as connection in arm rest bad. Occasionally, on testing, it worked briefly."
Pros: "CORDIAL HOSTESS AND NICE BREAKFAST"
Pros: "I got moved to a different airline and was not notified so when I got there over 2 hours early for KENYA FLIGHT I was hustled and bustled and BUSSED TO A DIFERENT TERMINAL at Dubai airport, then chastise, harangued and insulted by new airline staff for being "Late" and they couldn't guarantee I would make the flight. I it on board and someone else was in my seat. HE. Got bumped to first class..."
Cons: "See above...the whole experince"
Pros: "Kenya Air had a nice plane, nice snack, and good service on board the flight."
Cons: "Zanzibar's check in process was atrocious. The systems were slow, so it took forever to get through the queue. Then we were told we had to check our carry one because they were just over weight. They didn't tell us that upon arrival in Nairobi we would have to leave the secured area, go out, pay the visa fee (cash only), get the bags on the carousel, check in at the front, and go back through security again."
Pros: "Generous carry on limit, good prices, complimentary food on flights, on time departures, on demand entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding lines were a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Good crew. Flight not fully booked so had some extra space. Efficient transfer desk"
Cons: "Food - just horrible Nairobi airport not much to do and annoying additional security checks between sub-terminals in terminal 1."
Cons: "We only had 30 minutes to catch this connecting flight due to our incredibly delayed PrecisionAir flight. We got to the service desk to get our boarding passes and there was only one person to service a multitude of people. Of course they knew that a flight was coming in, why there was only one personnel is still a mystery to me. The person who served us, Victor K., was probably the least helpful customer service personnel I've come across. He was very slow, considering that he knows there's a lot of us trying to get to our next flight. We ended up missing our connecting flight. And for some reason, the plane left earlier than the time it was supposed to leave. Another mystery to me. Shouldn't their system have told them that there were a few passengers on the previous flight that was supposed to board this connecting flight?! They did give us a free hotel for the night, or so they call a hotel. The food served was just horrendous. They just served whatever is enough to be considered "food". I will never fly with Kenya airways ever again. They are so unreliable, irresponsible, and have very little regard to customer service."
Pros: "Wheel chair passengers given priority."
Cons: "Economy Class Boarding should be done by Seat numbers or Aisle numbers. Fuselage Aisle numbers should be called first so they enter and get seated. Than other Aisle numbers should be called to be seated until the front up to Business Class is filled. It gets congested in the Aisle and frustration as passengers bump into seats and each other."
Pros: "Good save for the delay."
Pros: "tickets were cheap"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Dubai therefore causing me and several other people to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "so arrive on KQ flight from bangkok which had been delayed so missed connecting flight to arusha. Then due to a complete lack of communication within the kq staff they made me miss the next connectign flight too and then expected me to wait another 10hrs for the next available flight to arusha."
