Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"

It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."

I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site.

Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Pros: "Everthing was great. I wish US domestic airlines were even half as good"
Cons: "Please change my meal request from diabetic to regular"
Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."

Pros: "Amenitied were great. We even arrived significantly early."
Pros: "Safety and comfort. The people were so nice."
Cons: "What I didn't like was when Turkish Airlines told us that in order to get free hotel and free transportation because our layover was 13+ hours we must buy Turkish entry visas which costs us $200.00. The visas should've been free because we were on transit."
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Cons: "Lost my bag. Again no gate number from Instambul to NY."

Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."

Pros: "Понравился вежливый персонал при посадке на рейс"
Cons: "За 9 с половиной часов мало давали воды. Первый раз предложили напитки и воду через 2 часа после вылета, и сразу же горячий обед, где тоже были чай/кофе. После этого около 5-6 часов ничего не предлагали, и почти за полтора часа до приземления в спешке предложили воду, напитки и второй горячий обед, в котором предлагалась паста с курицей или паста с сырным соусом и грибами. Я выбрала второе, на деле никакого сыра там не было, соус был как чистый майонез, только горячий, и грибов было два маленьких кусочка по сантиметру каждый. На вкус это были просто горячие макароны с майонезом. Да и зелень в салате уже была темная. Полтора месяца назад на рейсе Нью-Йорк - Москва еда была вкусная, да и до этого никогда претензий не было, в этот раз одни неприятные впечатления"
Cons: "Overall it was a good experience, my only suggestion is that airline should I force the carrion rule a little more"

Pros: "Only takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Everything I didn't like except takeoff and landing"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane before take off was very cold. I was dressed in a warm sport suit and got cold. My daughter was shievering in 2 sweaters. Blankets were sold not given to us only after take off. We had to wait 40 mins to take off which is fine in a busy airport, but couldn't get blankets when needed."
Cons: "The wait at the gate was very disorganized, the information didn't show up until after our boarding time. The entrainment system didn't work so we didn't have anything to watch for a 10 hour flight. Also, baggage took the longest ever to show up. I would never fly Aeroflot ever again."

Pros: "I liked the fact we landed and that they don't terrorise you over little overweight of luggage."
Cons: "*They lost and then found our luggages, that happens but after we found out that the luggage was badly damaged we had hard time replacing it. *Flight was delayed and no one would tell us, so we were standing in line for hours (2.5) and then finally they made announcement that another delay will happen. UNINFORMED would be the biggest issue. *crew seamed annoyed every time my cousin with pour english asked for something. *my TV was broken, so no movie for me, that's why entertainment is 1*"

Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."

We had to wait at the airport for a flight from Asia to arrive so that plane could be cleaned up and used for my flight. There was no hotel or food offered during 9 hour delay window in Kyiv, if you wanted something - you had to pay out of pocket which is ridiculous, hundreds of people were delayed so there was no room in the general waiting area, 9 hours of sitting on the floor for $1200, how about that?

Pros: "Crew is great with the tools or lack of them that they are provided with."

Revived an automatic respond but that's it. Luckily was flying through Kyiv and was able to speak with an airline representative and arrange my connecting flight. Representative suggested to add me to a 10+pm flight (I would land in Nyc at 4:35pm). After keep asking to look for other, possible earlier, flights I was rescheduled for a 6:45pm flight. However, once landed in Nyc I was asked to find a crew member before leaving the plane. Once I did, I was told that I got rescheduled once again to a 10:20pm flight (5 hours of waiting). When I asked why was I rebooked again without my notice, they didn't explain and then I asked if there are other earlier flights - I was told yes there are but they won't make any other changes to my travels. Also only their Kyiv office can make any changes the one in Nyc is just following instructions and not a fully functional office (useless)."

Pros: "no delays"
Cons: "Tiny claustrophobic seats put you in constant bodily contact with neighbors and no ability to move. Not overly concerned about lack of inflight entertainment, but be aware there is none (aside from the occasional older movie dubbed in Russian). Overall I can deal with stripped-down service but being so tightly packed in such a shameless way on a 10-hour flight is excruciating and not worth it."
