Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."
Cons: "The Attention is not as good as it was 4 years ago, the food terrible. And last but not least many luggage didn’t arrived."
Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "One of my luggage is still missing"
Cons: "After returning home I found items had been stolen from my luggage. Specifically about half of the items in my first aid kit were taken. Total cost of replacement will be approx $30."
Pros: "love georgia!!"
Cons: "Tried to cancel due to flooding in home and they would not refund my ticket. Neither would airfare.com, whom I purchased the ticket through."
Cons: "Wi fi"
Pros: "I love everything, the crew was amazing ,very helpful and always with a big smile on the face. Also I love the food, my wife and I are vegan and we requested a vegan menu in advance before the fly and the menu was delicious, fresh and healthy!! I would definitely recommend this airline to everyone!!! Way to go Turkish airline!!!!!"
Pros: "Busy flight with many kids and the entire crew was friendly and professional with service."
Cons: "After having booked an aisle seat near many family members I was traveling with, a Turkish airlines crew member came and asked me to move seats so as to accommodate a couple that wanted to sit together. I willingly gave up my seat to allow this. The crew didn't have another seat in mind, however, and I spent several minutes simply waiting in the aisle before they shuffled me to the front of the plane and made me sit in a much worse seat--a middle seat nowhere near any of my family members, nestled next to a large man who was clearly extending well into the seat they meant for me to take. It was clearly a terrible seat and I made the following 12 hour flight in significant discomfort. I was very dissatisfied with the crew's behavior. When a passenger books a comfortable seat near my family, and willingly gives it up to accommodate other passengers, they should not be treated so poorly"
Pros: "The only things that going for Turkish Airline is the cabin crew (lord knows they try), food and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 2 hrs, that in itself is not an issues, traffic delays do happen. However, the fact that captain choose not to run air conditioning to save fuel and main cabin, even after numerous requests, was 95 degrees for 2 hrs combined with the fact that airline did not submitted travel information to US Border Protection that also added another 1.5 hrs to clear customs is totally unacceptable... Although THY has the most direct route to/from Moldova from Houston, in the future, I'll most likely will spend more money and more time just to avoid it..."
Pros: "The courtesy you gave all the passengers"
Cons: "The 14-hour trip that made it hard for comfort it wasn't your fault just a distance that I had to go"
Pros: "Usually a great trip."
Cons: "A series of about 9 rows of 3 seats each row, had errors in to the monitors that normally you can watch a movie, watch news, or listen to music. Approximately 27 people could not use these monitors affixed in the seat before you. These monitors (screens) control the reading lights, the signal for the stewardess. Flight 33 on 6/30/2017 had 12.3 hours of blankness and the complaints were numerous, but the crew were of no use. I wish this would have happened to business or first class. The crew were horrible."
Pros: "seats, entertainment"
Cons: "food. only one non-veg option"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Cons: "We passed through 5 layers of security and still had a security threat on the airplane. After re-searching everyones bags and seats we finally departed 2.5 hours late. If there is a threat take everyone OFF the airplane. Nobody wanted to be there for the search. Pull us off and bring the dogs on"
Pros: "The plane has a lot of restrooms"
Cons: "he crew was not available at all Time"
Cons: "Wheel chair flyers should get first assistant"
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Pros: "The security measures"
Cons: "The attendant open the door on me while I was using the restroom, I didn't care for that, he can see that the restroom is in use ."
Cons: "Boarding process in Istanbul was very difficult. 5 security checks just getting from the plane from Brussels to our gate is excessive and time consuming. Very little organization at the gate as well. Not smooth at all."
Cons: "They made us choose an alternate schedule and offered our money back completely 1 week before our trip. This change by Turkish Airlines cost me $610. I had to rearrange the flight schedule for the person dog and house sitting for me. We had to spend an extra vacation day from work. The hotel Turkish Airlines put us in had terrible food and was so isolated that you could not walk to a restaurant. This airline was the lowest price, but I will definitely be looking for a different way for my next trip."
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Cons: "Their audio system is very bad."
Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."
Pros: "Same asabive"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Very little. I had heard that the food was better than United but I do not believe it is now that I have made six legs of travel and two of them over 13 hours."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines basically give minimal benefit to Star Alliance Gold members. Access to the lounge was given finally after I produced my physical Gold card even though I gave them my UA number. There are no ticketing agents in the Istanbul Airport within the secured area. I was not comfortable going outside security and then back again through security to upgrade my ticket. Agents at Turkish Airlines CIP NOT helpful."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "Screaming children and passengers that don't follow simple instructions or cue with respect"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."
Pros: "The free hotel provided by Turkish airline is very nice too."
Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Staff courtsey"
Cons: "Some of the food"
Pros: "The included meal/drinks is always a bonus on these shorter flights and makes a difference."
Cons: "I had a pillow of my own and so it didn't matter too much, but I noticed the lack of a pillow on this early morning flight."
Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"
Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."
Pros: "very professional, great entertainment"

I will implore prospective travelers to give the airline a shot (try). I can unequivocally attest that the decision to do so will not be regretted."
