We were advised they changed us to a bulkhead row w/an unoccupied seat adjacent to his. Twice during the flight one of the flight attendants came to tell him that she would help him off the plane so to wait for her after the rest of the passengers disembarked. The meal was very tasty.Chicken karaage was not crispy but I wouldn't expect it to be. The rest of the items were well seasoned with the right consistency.

Pros: "The plane was new. The in flight entertainment system was good, although I never got to experience it fully because the Flight attendant kept switching it off, as I had paid extra (an arm and a leg) for a “bulkhead seat”"
Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"
Pros: "Seating was spacious, crew was attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food choice was not pleasing to me."
Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home!

Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Food and good service"
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."

Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."

Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "The food is getting worse"
Cons: "Too hot in plane Food really late, 1h after special meals Entertainment system archaic, age of plane All isles seats gone as soon as checkin open"
Pros: "Attention to customer service and needs"
Cons: "Couldn't use my own headphones to watch movies"
Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."
Pros: "Flight arrived earlier than expected and the flight attendants were good and polite."
Pros: "Had a row to myself to stretch out. Not crowded, no wait for bathrooms. I like the warm washcloths after we settled in and before meals. Plenty of blankets and pillows."

Pros: "Plenty of space"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Movie choice"
Cons: "Noise, attitude, boardinv"
Pros: "Horrible experience!!!!"
Cons: "1. Emirates has only one piece option. With Laptop bag weighing about almost 5kgs, you are left with just 2kgs which the carry bag itself would weigh. Not sure, how Emirates is getting away with this discriminatory attitude, while rest of airlines do allow -Carry on + a personal item. 2. There is no check on the carry-on weight at SFO airport. While in DXB, they entice customer to buy all duty free and then when it comes to boarding, you will be 'shocked'. No more than 10kg allowed. 3. You will be directed to read instructions before boarding. Then the corruption deal starts...read point 4 4. The man will say, remove anything in excess of 10kg or pay extra luggage, knowing very well, that people buy duty free at DXB. 5. Once you start negotiating, then the deal-making starts... 6. I managed it. More on Facebook review..."

The quality of the plane is still amazing, I love Airbus even in economy class and I am 6'2 tall. So enough space for my legs, the plane seemed to be pretty new. Love it. No problem during the boarding. Staff very efficient at that time The same during the flight. they were there to provide us a high standards services. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "The food portion were pretty small BUT there were some leftover that the crew agree to give if you asked for. So at the end not too bad."

Pros: "All gud"

Cons: "Delay flight, slow"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Air hostess did not offer hot drinks"

Cons: "Seat configuration is not worthy of CP business class. It’s the old 777-200, either retire the plane - that would be a shame, or upgrade the seats"
Cons: "The crew service very lack"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had an upgrade on the video display software, making for a more manageable video experience. It's easier to navigate because of the ability to close screens and go back to the screen you were on, rather than having to start over each time."
Cons: "I received a polite e-mail and a text message an hour or two later indicating that my flight from Taipei to HongKong had been delayed. It took a login to the Cathay Pacific web site to figure out that with the rescheduled time, I would miss my connecting flight from HongKong to Boston if I didn't change anything. I managed to sort it out, though it took using my cell phone to place an international call to the HongKong Cathay Pacific office to get me on an earlier flight. I don't think this is an acceptable level of service -- had I not had WiFi access or an international capable cell phone, I would have been stranded in Taipei or HongKong an extra day. I think CP could have done more to notify and help remediate the situation knowing the implication of the rescheduled flight. Food also remains mediocre, though slightly better."

Cons: "Older entertainment system but not a big issue on a short flight."

Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"
Pros: "Food is ok."
Cons: "Washrooms are small and dirty."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 4 hrs. Food was horrendous."
Cons: "Quality of the veg food.requires improvement."
Pros: "More leg room, incline on seats, blanket, pillow."
Cons: "All the adverts on Premium Economy with Cathay Pacific are inaccurate. It is NOT your secluded compartment. The curtain to economy is ALWAYS kept open...NO privacy. Food is EXACTLY SAME as economy. In LAX had to REMIND them that Premium Economy has priority boarding. There is no champagne on arrival at your seat...you have to ASK for it. Crew is always HURRIED. When you ask for a beverage or a snack, hostess and stewards have ATTITUDE. it's like they are doing a big FAVOR. Really??? we spent lots of EXTRA MONEY to be in this class. Restroom was difficult to access. Overall MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT"

Cons: "A short flight with just snacks. Seems downgraded the international flight standard."
Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."
Cons: "The child sitting behind me keeps kicking my seat and never stops making all kinds of noise, that really sucks! One attendant (I believe she is from Hong Kong because she once emphasized that she does not understand Mandarin and she only speaks Cantonese and English) she had different faces and attitudes towards foreigners, people who are Hong Kong citizens and people who are from the Mainland China, which made me and my friends really uncomfortable..."
Pros: "Only complaint was the disembarking routine. They emptied all of business and first before coach could even begin to leave the coach cabin. I am all in favor of giving business and first preference in getting off the plane, but this was just too much, waiting for the slowest person in business to get off before a single person could leave the coach cabin."
Pros: "Easy check in, and a pleasant flight! Thank You!!!"
Pros: "seating was very good and confortable, nothing to complain about"
Pros: "The service"

Cons: "Flight time respect. Earlier flights. Charging system for phone or comuperr and if there was internet availability in flight."
Cons: "The flight from Washington DC to Istanbul was very comfortable but the flight from Istanbul to Lahore was very uncomfortable. It was not worth the money. Turkish air line should use better And newer airplanes between Istanbul and Lahore"
Cons: "I didn’t make the flight to Antayla because the airport customs takes too long, kayak needs to let travelers know they need a visa and passport to travel through IST. Also tight connections are impossible."
Pros: "The in-flight experience was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return."
Pros: "All the pieces to have provided an excellent experience were there, but they didn’t come together. It was nice to get some food, and the movie choices were pretty good."
Cons: "Hot, like super hot, in the aircraft. It was horrible."
Pros: "Good movie selections"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as usual on Turkish flights."
Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."
Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."
Pros: "Food on flight was good, captain was good pilot"
Cons: "Flight from NY to Thessaloniki had a medical emergency. Plane was diverted to Manchester Airport in England to help patient on flight. This caused over 3.5 hour late arrival into Istanbul. This caused me to miss onnnection flight. There was very poor information or guidance by staff once we arrived into airport. I had to walk long long distances from the gate without assistance. I had requested wheelchair assistance considering I just had spinal cord surgery and In need of assistance. I was forced to stay over night in Istanbul and waited over 12 hours next day in airport for next available flight to Thessaloniki. I missed my brothers wedding night and could not be his best man for wedding from ordeal which was not fair! I also payed a premium price close to 1000k USA dollars for flight I could of booked many tickets with such a long layover and extra expenses buying a visa and food for half the fare I payed. This was not fair especially when a plane is diverted for medical emergency! To top it all off being a medical doctor I loaned and assisted staff with passenger and offered my consultation. services to emergency medical physician whom was called by crew for help and finally which reccomended to divert flight to Manchester to assist the passenger In crisis! Your welcome Turkish Airlbes Kindly Dr Tamir Kharouba MD"
Pros: "The plane :)"
Cons: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, flight was late, no communication from the crew. Captain barely spoke English"
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "Excellent service, flight attendants are very kind, answered questions, very caring to seniors and children (couple seniors next to me and a little kid in front of my seat). Good are good and always provide variety of drinking. Smooth and punctuated flight. Thanks for your excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I do not like. I will take trips with your airlines in future when having s chance."
Pros: "I’ve flown Many airlines in the past but my experience with Turkish airlines was wonderful. The only bad thing was that there was a lot of turbulence. The staff were super helpful, every time you asked for something they provided quickly. The seats were spacious. Great flight entertainment tons of movies to choose from. Food was yummy. Will defenitly fly with Turkish air in the future."
Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"
Cons: "Took them too long to pick up the trash ..."
Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."
Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"
Cons: "Planes are a little small for a fairly long haul business service. Nice but small - so basic amenities."
Pros: "Food's always good and the staff friendly"
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system is not good...it used to be good but not anymore"
Pros: "The crew and the food were great."
Cons: "There was a dispute about a seat assignment and the flight attendant stated that she did NOT have the authority to decide the outcome. One passenger was in another passengers seat and refused to leave because it was next to a relatives seat."
Pros: "The great work of crew members taking care of passegers."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"
Pros: "Smooth flight, comfortable seats, crew was very catering and kind"
Cons: "The equipment on the plane needs some tuning up such as the screens tilting on their own (like falling down)"
Pros: "Great variety in entertainment options and delicious food, well prepared and served."
Cons: "There was a "skip" or interruption in the movies. I could follow them, but the system needs to be adjusted a bit. Overall very good. Oddly, the foot rest, in the upright position, bumped into my shins and made stretching my legs a bit uncomfortable. And I'm average height (5' 10")."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean enough Crew was fine Food was ok Turkish could have planned to be better than European airlines It is trying to become like them Restroom was cleaner than competition"
Pros: "We liked being in Exit row and the food and service"
Cons: "On way over BOS-->IST the seats were the closest together I have ever had. Exit row video screen support arm did not hold in place"
Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."
Cons: "Delayed yet again"
Pros: "Crew was professional, pleasant"
Pros: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"
Pros: "Boarding procedure was not organized. Boarding of business class and special needs passengers was not prioritized and were boarded along with economy passengers. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "TV screen very far from the seat and could only interact with it via the remote control."
Cons: "I could not figure out how to get a vegetarian meal."
Pros: "Leg rooms are much smaller compare to other airlines."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "I didn't like the food, crew. Most crews didn't SMILE, din't greet properly. It is very disappointing. Why they don't Smile? During my trip to Atl to Istambul I asked one crew to give me some water. But she didn't give me. After then I asked another crew. It made me very upset. I am not satisfied about food. It is not standard. It needs to be improved. Train your crews how to SMILE and Greet."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."
Pros: "Service, food."
Cons: "Check in booth when we checked in bags were very difficult to deal with."
Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"
Cons: "This aircraft also wasn't peoperly cleaned. Another seat pocket filled with garbage and a stale smell of vomit."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and helpful. In flight entertainment was great, wide selection of movies and games to keep people occupied."
Cons: "Seats can be bit squeezy and uncomfortable, wifi onboard only for business class. Food need to have more variety."
Pros: "In general I like all the comfort that offers Turkis Airlines to their customers."
Cons: "There are some employees there are not so kind. When ever a customer request for assistance."
