Pros: "The service was okay"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. 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. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Cons: "The entertainment choice not as vast as Emirates that I always experienced"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very cushion for your bottom. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."
Pros: "about average"
Pros: "The service, the crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, if you like who is next to you"

Pros: "Honestly nothing!"
Cons: "Non working TV"
Pros: "We arrived safely and I received an aisle seat"

Pros: "Entertainment system is something you cannot exhaust during the flight. Hundreds of movies and TV series to pick from."
Cons: "The chair was BROKEN. There was a section of it that was protruding and hurting me in the back. Only thing crew offered was extra blankets to put behind my back. They quickly run out of any food options and were only offering one of them (the worst one, of course). The beverage cart took the tour way less frequently than on other airlines, effectively leaving you thirsty (wouldn't even go around offering water) or having to make your own trips to the galley."
Pros: "Aircraft appeared new and in good condition."
Cons: "The food was not good as on the outbound flight. The seat pitch was insufficient for the degree of incline permitted on the seats in economy class. When the persons in front of us lowered their seats there was insufficient room to eat and their seat was so close that they were right in our faces."
Cons: "Similar experience as the previous leg. Previous leg was about 7 or 7.5 hours. This leg was for about 12.5 hours. Please consider economy class passengers as humans too."
Cons: "If I am seat is last is it a disadvantage, coz by the time the person serving from the starts come to the end, the meal gets over to what we like to have. so my suggestion to improve on this."
Pros: "It's clean and comfortable and the flight attendants are not rude!"
Cons: "Nothing really! It's a long trip but you made it comfortable for us."
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..."
Cons: "Airport helpers at both airport are not dealing properly. Newark wheelchair employees were demanding for big money as tips. Why money is charged to use trolley to move luggage????"
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."

Pros: "Exelent Crew, great food and service I really like Swiss airlines. The best so far!!! Thanks"
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat.

Pros: "The service and THE FOOD WERE GOOD !"
Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."
Pros: "The crew was great. I was lucky to get a comfortable enough seat. Not the one I actually booked and paid for but still it was ok."
Cons: "I was told I was placed on standby for this flight despite the fact that I booked this flight and paid extra for the chosen seat far in advance. The boarding was chaotic. Very poor communication. The flight was very delayed."
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Worst travel experience ever and I’ve traveled the world. Red eye flight delayed for 3 hours. Missed connection flight with not a lot of options.

Cons: "Late arrival at Dubai, late departure and late at final destination...No information given to passangers!"
Cons: "Not on time at all. Toooooo late boarding"

Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Flight attendants helpful, efficient, food was good. Leg room more than adequate."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "The on board duty free did not have ample change, so I had to forfeit $3 in change.. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "short travel time"
Cons: "the landing was way too drastic. The pressure during landing was not gentle and I had a real hard time trying to allow my hearing to come back. The blood pressure in my head felt like my head would explode. My head hurt for a long time. Did not like the flight at all."

Pros: "Fastest and most thorough service I've ever received!"

Pros: "Vegetarian curry lunch/dinner was good. Cabin temperature was good. Bathroom was clean."

Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."
Pros: "The flight crew was super friendly and efficient. Lots of leg room and the croissant is a nice touch!"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to ZRH was in a newly fitted 777. The seats were very comfortable and we had plenty of leg room in economy class. Great and extremely nice flight attendants - thank you!"
Cons: "The flight from ZRH to SFO was in an older 777 and the seats were very uncomfortable with limited leg room in economy. This flight was not very enjoyable. I have to say though that the very friendly and helpful flight attendants were compensating for this. Thank you!"

Pros: "Crew was great and very professional. Airport is good and comnfortable."
Cons: "Transatlantic flight was hugly uncomfotable. The seat was broken. Seats are nerrow, hard, too close to each other. If person pulls down seat in front of you, the back is literally 10 cm from your face. Very bad."
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: "Flight boarding was quick and fast and food was great."
Cons: "Seats had no room and if someone in front reclined the tv was right in your face. Also what happen to having individual fans above.

Overall it was okay."

Pros: "flight attendants were very nice."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The video with info about the connecting flights and the location of our arrival and departing terminals was very helpful, as our flight from Belgrade was deleyed over an hour, and many of us had to catch the flight that only had 40'-60' time in between. In Zurich, they went far and beyond to get us to our connecting flight, and drove us throughout terminals in a mini van. We made the flight."
Cons: "I was too worried I won't make the connecting flight to notice anything on my flight from Belgrade to Zurich."
Pros: "excellent crew and service"

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: "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: "there was no in-time update on information about flight gate. it changed 3 times. result is i missed my flight and next flight was offered at US$1200 for IST-KWI sector where total fare from Toronto - Kuwait was US$ 1000 staff at Transfer desk was not co-operative and Sales office was almost empty. only 2 person there to attend many stranded passengers. staff was very slow to work and no criteria to handle those need help on urgent basis. most of the staff do not speak English and very UNFRIENDLY"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent, crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent, and I really appreciated the small care packages handed out (with lip balm, slippers, toothbrush/paste, socks, and eye cover)."
Cons: "About 8 hours into the flight the restrooms became very, VERY unclean--urine on the floors, sinks clogged, smelled terrible. More restroom maintenance was needed throughout this long flight. I thought this airline was the nicest I have been on save this one issue. It would be great if Turkish Airlines could resolve it in the future! Additionally the boarding process in Istanbul was like herding cattle. People weren't seated according to boarding group and it was absolute mayhem--no single file line, people shoving past one another to get seated first on the same plane."
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: "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."
Cons: "Seats was a lil tight , food was a lil warm not hot"
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Cons: "Have to unload Plane Flight git exchanged without my approval"
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: "the flight and service were good"
Cons: "after the ooup d'tout there was a period of chaos and i had to stand in line for 11.5 hours straight to get a new flight boarding pass.l They could have maybe come up with a different system for this considering the 2 or 3,000 people who had their flights canceled. that was incredibly unpleasant...herded in like cattle for 12 hours with i don't know how many thousands of people trying to get a flight out. It was like being in a refuge camp."
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: "I really like the fact that they still prepare food for their passengers, however, the quality of the food was less than average They prepare you with the eye mask and the slippers, and a thin sheet of blankets for longer flight, which was really nice. The seats are comfortable, and there are a larger selection of movies and songs to choose from which were also great. The flight was relatively stable. I didn't ever realize that we took off, maybe i was too tired to notice, i don't know."
Cons: "The boarding was really slow, it was not on time. The food was less than average, but better than not have any. It was hard to find assistance. The flight seemed a bit old, because we weren't able to turn off our light which caused some inconvenience."
Cons: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"
Pros: "Movie choices plentiful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost an hour while passengers were on board the airplane."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
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: "zero customer services and i will never fly with this airlines again"

Pros: "Very accommodating staff."
Cons: "Temperature was up and down. Seats were small."
Pros: "very comfortable"
Cons: "Cramped. This is how I would describe my flight. Very tight. Seats close together, a bit claustrophobic. Made the 9 hour flight seem twice as long. Plane was an Airbus 300 (I think) Service was fine and attendants friendly but I'd think twice about flying long-distance with Turkish again on this Airbus model."
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies that were available. Especially with such a long flight, it's good to be kept entertained"
Cons: "Space was a little tight, as well as the boarding process was not in order. Everyone was allowed to go in at once regardless of the group or where the seat was and that was a little frustrating."
Cons: "On the flight from Dubai to Frankfurt I got bitten by a spider that resulted in an allergic reaction causing my abdomen to swell for four days afterwards and requiring me to seek medical help once I arrived back in Boston. I had stayed in a luxury private residence in Dubai and not been anywhere around spiders previously..."
Pros: "I like the service and how organized they are"
Cons: "I was very please, I don't have bad comments"
Pros: "I got there."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport was a nightmare. Gate agent randomly picked people and made them check hand luggage. Batteries were in mine but he didn't care. He did ask if I was on a first class ticket, so I guess FC doesn't have to adhere to baggage size. Others with larger bags were allowed on board. My other flights with Lufthansa had no problem with the same bag. We were transported by bus from the gate to the plane!?!? In the rain. And this was an international flight!?!? Attendants took 10 minutes to answer call button and then asked if it was a mistake. I asked for water to take meds as I was overlooked by beverage service. Another attendant walked up and said he had bypassed me as I was asleep. I showed him the snack package he had handed me and asked how had he given me snacks if I was asleep? He snapped back that he was sorry. I almost asked if he was sorry he was caught lying or sorry he was on board?"
Pros: "The meal was very good. Entertainment choices were good.Friendly service. On time flights. No problem for the check in procedures."
Pros: "Boarding on time was great. But then not leaving for 4 hours was terrible. Plus being on that plane was horrible as it added additional time to actual flight of 11 hours. I wish that delayed time could have been spent at the gate."

Cons: "For boarding areas. 3 complete changes of boarding area before we were able to board."

Cons: "The cramped seats. And what happen with calling out now boarding certain rows on the plane? It's not a hectic free for all?"
Pros: "They were very nice! Always a smile, even after 10 hours with us!"
Cons: "Final snack was a ricotta pepper sandwich - which was kind of a weird choice. Kitkat was of course delicious. Beef stew for lunch was fine. but my meal come out with frost on it, so the salad was freezer burned and my dressing was unable to pour being frozen! no veggies for me! :)"
Cons: "Very little legroom."
Cons: "More food choice and more snacks should avialable during flight time Both serving food is very bad"
Pros: "Nothing was good, Soeacial meal Asian food was pathetic no taste completely bland. Boarding was chaos, too many confusions and crew was clueless. Will never fly A380 again as there are too many passengers and airline don’t know how to handle. On arriving in DEL the baggage room 2:30 hrs to come. Totally disappointed. Lufthansa has no control whatsoever they don’t even care."
Cons: "Everything related to flight could have been better. I have flown Lufthansa multiple times in the past never had such drastic issues like this time. Completely disappointed. Should have booked Qatar instead."

At my suprrise we had to pay extra money to check in our laggage. I will never again will book thru your site and will always tell everyone how dishonest are you are.

Cons: "Would have been great if the airlines "flying" had actually been Lufthansa! My electronic ticket said Lufthansa, check in at Lufthansa, but when I got there and tried to check-in...NOT Lufthansa! It was United. I deliberately went out of my way to NOT book with United when placing my reservation. Personal reasons. Won't book this way ever again."
Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"

The staff including the supervisor were so un-cooperative and rude. The supervisor snapped at me by saying that I was not doing the airline any favor by flying Lufthansa. At that point I just gave up and paid the totally unjust fee. Took me to a back room to pay the fees, where the credit card machine and even the printer wasn't working. ...... very bad experience EVER !!!"
