Cons: "The food was low quality and delivered in a demeaning fashion."
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."

Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Pros: "Everything was superior from A to Z there is no room for complains"
Cons: "They have lost our luguage and up to this minute, we dont know where they are and when we are getting them. They are not even answering our calls or emails. Very bad airline with very unprofessional people. Will never fly aith this airline again."
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Start from online checking, baggage dropped and boarding flight is a hidden tradition of high class hospitality experience. My first time ever to use Turkish airlines succeeded my expectations. food is great, the onboard seat is comfortable and the crews they're wonderful."
Cons: "Quietness and simplicity looks of high quality of crews presentation is a high class professional experience."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Cons: "It is just crazy the extra cost that a person needs to pay for each extra Kg he/she needs to have onboard along with their "free baggage." I had to pay 23 extra US Dollars for every Kg, summing up to $160 for 7 Kgs!! Those additional belongings were crucial and important to carry, it very well understood that a certain capacity is only allowed onboard, yet being considerate and understanding in terms of customers' needs and priorities is as equally critical and important. I think the way the airline approaches the "Extra Weight" issue needs to be revisited, keeping in mind both sides' interests and concerns."

Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to weather conditions in Turkey, a snow storm that caused the Istanbul airport to be closed. I tried to reschedule my flight but was delayed 4 days which meant I was going to miss my work for 3 days."
Cons: "The crew is really rude and unhelpful and the seats not clean"

Good value for money. Small snack and free drinks. And most important: on time!

Cons: "The staff was super aggressive to put all handbags under the seat even with empty compartment bins. Once the big bags are in why should they be so mean of the compartments are still empty?"

Pros: "The food was probably the best meal I’ve ever had in Economy."
Cons: "The seat pitch was really poor. I’m only 5’ 11” and my knees were rubbing against the seat in front of me the whole time. The seats weren’t particularly comfortable either."
Cons: "It was all great, apart from the bus we needed to board both sides air sides which delayed and complicated the process. Boarding at the terminal itself is much better."
Pros: "Roomy seats and good food"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude and unhelpful. They refused to do a spelling change on my name and forced me to purchase a second ticket. The flight was 25+ minutes late taking off due to lack of organization at passenger check-in. It really is a shame that Agean is pretty much the only option to Istanbul (IST) from Athens."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly. Got breakfast too."
Cons: "Chaos in lines to get bus to plane. No organization at all. Just push & shove!!"
Pros: "Would fly again! Food was excellent (warm meal on a 2.5hrs flight!), got an empty seat to use for my baby, they didn’t break her stroller or car seat, they didn’t lose our luggage."

Cons: "Everything. The plane was so delayed, then they lost"

Cons: "When I bought the ticket I made sure there was one piece of luggage allowed. When I checked in they said there is no baggage allowance and had to pay usd 69. I feel I have been duped. I should get a refund."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication"
Cons: "Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins"
Cons: "Plane got stuck on the runway for 45 minutes citing some air congestion reason over Cyprus!!!! we where in Lebanon. Comfort is low for the prices you pay"
Pros: "Nothing positive to report, besides getting to Athens almost an hour late"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges, Never seen flight attendants treat passengers so unfriendly. Lead flight attendant was the worst. First time experience and for sure also the last time we’ll fly this airline"
Cons: "The plane has an hour delay in Rome due to rain. Although the delay is understandable, they seem to have left my luggage outside in the rain for all that time. As a result, all my clothes were wet and ruined and a few other items broke. Horrible baggage handling."
Pros: "The food, crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Didn't have any entertainment"
Cons: "At Beirut airport the manager gave permission to a passenger at check in to bypass all the passengers waiting in line just because he was with someone!!! When I stepped out, and asked him can you do this. Very rudely he said, that this passenger is business class. I didn't believe him, so I asked the second manager if this is correct. He didn't do anything about it. When on the plane, the passenger, was sitting behind me in economy class. Shitty service."
Pros: "crew was pleasant once on board"
Cons: "Very last minute posting of gate and then was late with no explanation. They were a bit rude at the gate to some fellow passengers and I feel it was because they were heading to Albania."

Cons: "Tehran station staff need more trainig and need to be overseen"
Pros: "They served a meal!"
Cons: "40 minute delay due to traffic at destination airport. Not Aegean's fault. Pilot kept us informed. Very nice job."
Pros: "first they announced 10 min delay, then they could not find the crew, after they appeared delay was extended to 45 min we left about 50 min late. gained some time in flight and arrived 35 min late. first batch of luggage came out relatively early and then there was a break of over 20 min before the luggage started to come out again, just as if somebody decided to have a coffee break."

Cons: "It was ok for me but someone in a wheelchair might have a tough time"
Pros: "The plane was fairly new and, for such a short route, quite big (but I guess that was just due to the increased number of passengers, as almost all of the 180 seats were booked)"
Cons: "Almost 3.5h delay, no reason given, a mere croissant offered during waiting time, no transparency about additional delays (it was just 2.5h, initially). Also, despite the aircraft being newer than most Tarom planes, it was cramped, with very little leg room, very cheap trays and no storage space on the back of the seats in front. No warm beverages (no coffee, no tea!!). Will seek compensation for the delay."

Pros: "All was fine. Since the flight from Bucharest to Chisinau is only an hour, the tiny plane was fine."
Cons: "Since the plane is so tiny, you have to turn over your cabin baggage at planeside, then get it back when you land. The airline took my hand luggage in good condition, and when I got it back, one zipper pull had been snapped in half. I tried to file a claim when I landed, but airport personnel said that for cabin baggage, there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "Quick boarding, Cordial crew. We got from here to there efficiently."
Cons: "No "flight experience" - it felt more like riding the bus - we got on, drank some water and before you knew it we were landing."
Cons: "It was impossible to make the check-in online. I had to go to the airport very early. The lady at the check-in desk said that my name was NOT in the system, nor was my flight reservation. She had to look up by the ticket number (highly unusual, she said). The seats were apart for me and my wife, despite the fact thet I had chosen together seats when I made the booking. Next time I will think twice before I go for Kayak or Brussels Airlines (for example, they don't have Bucharest Airport on their departure list on the B.A. website... after all, Romania is a E.U. country!) The second flight took off after 20 mins. delay, and landed w 15 mins. delay."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "The babuins that got drunk and made o lot of noise"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I tried to make a change to the reservation. They had 4 different romanian phone numbers and all were either busy all day and cut off the call or left me on hold for hours. I finally gave up. Not only did I lose the possibility of a change with a fee I lost the entire reservation completely. I do not recommend them ever if customer service is your expectation."
Pros: "On time and quiet"
Pros: "Flights were delayed due to heavy snowstorms and it wasn't communicated until right before the flight."
Pros: "ON TIME."
Cons: "WAS COERCED INTO CHECKING BAG. HAD I GATE CHECKED, AS EVERYONE ELSE WITH TWO BAGS DID, WOULD HAVE SAVED MYSELF 15 MINUTES."
Pros: "The sandwich was yummy."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "As I said, check-in for the Bucharest to PRG leg was very difficult. My hotel needed to help. Ridiculous."
Cons: "Typically a beverage Is offered before take off. This flight it was not offered till the breakfast came out. May have been due to late start to boarding process"
Pros: "Service and punctuality were spot on. No in-flight entertainment for our short flight from Timisoara to Bucharest, so bring a book or e-book. A good sandwich was provided, though. Just found a fare with Tarom and Air France that is half the cost of the other airlines. I would definitely take advantage of this if I were headed overseas again."
Pros: "CREW IN BOTH FLIGHTS WAS NICE AND HELPFUL"
Cons: "NO AIR CONDITION DURIND THE FLIGHT (WAS BUT DID NOT DO ANYTHING)' MIXED FOOD (CHEESE AND CHICKEN TOGETHER AND NO WAY TO ORDER IN ADVANCE), VERY NICE CREW BOTH SIDED BUT RUDE GROUND STUFF IN ROMANIA,"
Cons: "Let passengers look out the window in the daytime. Going over Norway and Greenland with fantastic scenery and windows are blacked out whole trip. I paid to select a window seat. Totally depressing to be in the dark all day. Windows black even when lunch served. Tasteless Western food. Would have liked something Arab. (I’m a white American)"
Cons: "That if passengers with a original departure of erbil will be blocked for their final log that kayak or royal jordanian dont advertise the flight"
Cons: "Just had issues with bathrooms not being clean. Ran out of soap in 2 bathrooms"
Pros: "Crew was good, but only so much you can do on a junk plane"
Cons: "The plane could have been better, a lot better"
Pros: "Great flight, on time, wonderful food and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "The pilot scared us off, we had a very rough landing! I will never usa royal jordanian again"
Cons: "Absolutely the worst flight and airport I have ever experienced. I will never travel royal Jordanian ever again!"
Pros: "My neighbor"
Cons: "My chair"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and clean."
Cons: "The soap dispenser in the bathroom was broken."
Pros: "Boarding was as enjoyable as possible."
Cons: "Other than delivering food and drink together, crew was generally not visible throughout flight. Trays of finished food and drink were left on passengers' trays an extremely long time. Trash was not picked up except twice during the flight (following the two meals)."
Pros: "The flight schedule was better than any other carrier. The flight crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The space between rows really seemed much narrower than a year ago."
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "RJ will fail any legitimate expectation. Business is supposed to board and receive luggage according to priority. RJ is sure to disappoint u. It is a low cost carrier that pretends to be otherwise"
Cons: "I hd a very large person seating next to me. He should have been made to buy 2 seats. Very uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Pros: "Seat on the 787 is the best economy seat ever"
Cons: "Movie options more limited than other airlines. Crew were certainly OK - a bit abrupt, but I really don’t need someone fawning over me to be satisfied."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment is outdated and very limited"
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "90 min check in is hardly acceptable and indeed nerve recking"
Cons: "The airline should upgrade the entertainment system. Besides that it’s good."
Cons: "They only offer one main mean they used to offer to 2 main meals plus breakfast."
Pros: "Horrible airport security measures- missed flight Kayak failed to assist. Airlines and airports horrible in assistance"
Cons: "Always smelling cigarettes smoke onboard"
Pros: "I upgraded my flight to business class and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Boarding, flight attendants"
Cons: "Food, cleanliness"
Cons: "On counter, some workers were not nice"
Pros: "Easy boarding process, friendly staff. Newer plane (787 Dreamliner). The Crown lounge in Amman is gorgeous."
Cons: "Food was ok, the seats were narrow. Even though they laid flat, they were stiff and not as comfortable as Qatar, Etihad, or Emirates. I have had better experiences and sleep on the other carriers."
Pros: "Evry thing Time keeping Food Survice"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "I thought the Crown Lounge in Amman (RJ's hub) was shockingly poor."
Pros: "The best airline I ever used! New planes and very friendly workers!"
Cons: "They wont let us pray. It's a Muslim airline. And yet they refused us to perform our obligatory prayers. Also we had ordered special meal for all 5 of us. We only got 3."
Cons: "Our check in luggage was opened. And the expensive perfumes we bought were missing. Some perfumes were taken without the boxes. Empty boxes were left. and some were taken with the boxes. Atleast $500 worth of perfumes were stolen from us 5 passengers luggages."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Normal flight no entertainment"
Pros: "Timing is great"
Cons: "We suppose to have a hotel in transit, but they lied to us and asked us to pay 130 $ for that hotel which supposed to be free! The hotel is SUPER DIRTY and is not even suitable to animals. Beside tha you have to pay for food which is very limited and very bad taste. After we reserve the hotel, we had to wait 3 hours until the big lazy boy to come over and escort is to the hotel shuttle. Over all, was the worst experience for me and I will NEVER EVER try this airlines again."
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Complex boarding Delay Did not inform us about a stop in canada even we book non stop flight and we surprise in last minuts on boarding that we have to get transit visa or we will not board"
Pros: "There was more leg room than I'm used to and I got to watch Lego Batman"
Cons: "Seats were declined during take off and landing. Kids were running around everywhere, one even jumping into my leg, and one, get this, was running around as we were landing. At no point did anyone say "hey, be a parent and keep your kids in check." The staff seemed kind of lazy and annoyed Just generally a mess of inconsiderate people and the crew not doing their job."
Cons: "The crew from boarding to touchdown in Abu Dhabi were very lazy. Unnecessary time wasted. Baggage claim was an absolute disaster as we had to wait over an hour to get our bags."
Cons: "No transit support in delayed flight."
Pros: "ماشي حالها كرحلة قصيرة"

Cons: "Food, although a short flight (1:50 h:m) snack was served, a dry very cold sandwich, a piece of chocolate cake and red mix juice !! I am diabetic and cannot drink a juice full of sugar, a chocolate cake. There was a screen in front of me, it was locked so I cannot choose anything, the played a "Bloopers" program, I couldn't even turn it off."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Very early boarding and push back."
Pros: "Great check in service, inflight and swift luggage claim in Amman."
