Pros: "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
Cons: "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Pros: "Overall good experience, could have been better if we had got seats of our choice."
Cons: "If we could have got seats of our choice."
Pros: "Best economy airline experience I’ve had in years"
Cons: "If they could have offered neck rubs (jokingly)"
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly. Had argument with a old man in the next row over serving glass of water"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."
Cons: "there is a technical issue with the headset input and thus the entertainment system did not work."
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."
Pros: "We felt safe and the flight landed a bit early."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, couldn’t hear zones being called, etc. assigned seats had us in the middle and basically so confined we couldn’t eat when they gave us food. Very uncomfortable. I had such a bad experience I got online and paid for isle seats for the return trip, and thought maybe that’s what they wanted all along ..,"
Pros: "Really exceptional service! Very impressed!"
Pros: "I recently booked a flight on Qatar first, to Ko Samui, Thailand. When I got on the plane, I asked the flight attendant to please be careful when he pushed the cart down the aisle because the last time I flew, the flight attendant smashed the cart into my elbow and drew blood. The flight attendant laughed at me, so I told him, calmly, that if it happened again, I would sue the airline. He didn't like that, and so for the next ten minutes he sent three different flight attendants over to ask me crazy questions like, "Do you have anything you would like to tell us?" I have no idea what this was about. Eventually, I was told to get off the plane, which ended up costing me over $1,500 in transportation, hotel, and new flight (on Emirates) fees. It was and still is a nightmare because my vacation has been ruined due to having no money. I'm a master's-degree-holding English teacher of 11 years with no history of ever having been asked to get off of a plane for any reason, and no, I was not drunk because while waiting for my luggage to be returned, had a conversation with three Boston airport police officers who did not arrest me or even understand why I had been kicked off of my flight. Nor did I speak a single profane word to the Qatar flight attendants or security, and of course, I did not use violence or resist when I was told to get off the plane. Unlike Qatar's staff, the Boston police officers were very polite and understanding. Emirates, on the other hand, was a completely different story. They were great. The staff was friendly, and when I was sleeping, they didn't send their staff over to harass me. I have flown on Emirates, Qatar, and Ethihad many times, and I truly don't understand why Qatar's staff have been instructed by their managers that it is okay to lose long-time customers and kick professional teachers off of their planes just because they think I wasn't perfectly sweet and nice to them all the time. I am an American, and in my country we have freedom of expression and speech, as long as that speech does not indicate violent intentions or use profanity or insults. Basically, I felt as though I was in a country with no rights to free speech at all. Presently I am having my lawyer work up legal documents for Qatar to get my money back and to reimburse me for travel and hotel expenses, as well as having to take two extra days off of work to reschedule my flight. I truly believe in the transparency of the travel industry through using comments like those I am making you readers aware of right now, and I assume you will benefit from this rhetorical question/advice: Emirates and Ethihad are sometimes a little more expensive than Qatar on certain flights, but is it really worth it to risk having Qatar take your money and make you miss your flight for no reason? Is it acceptable for an airline operating in the USA to deprive Americans of their right to express concern to the flight attendants on their plane?"
Pros: "The staff near Baggage check-in area are always rude with the customers, it also happened to us in the past."
Cons: "Very very poor customer service"
Pros: "The in-flight service of Emirates Airlines is superb and Flight Attendants as helpful, courteous and diligent in their duties. I highly admire their professionalism and client service."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Pros: "Usual suspects. Emirates does a lot right! Consistent product, and has been over the years it serves the Addis route."
Cons: "I hate how more often than not ADD flight do not get bridges so you have to deal with Dubai's stifling heat."
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food."
Cons: "Cannot choose seats without paying a fee which is ridiculous. There is no way to get a window seat on the plane. I have never travelling on a non window seat in my 20 years of flying until this time."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Cons: "AS we boarded the staff weighed our carry on luggage. This created hardship and stress. If they felt my carry-on bag was too heavy I would be in big trouble, because I didn't have any money to pay additional fees."
Pros: "crew very friendly"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Pros: "The selection of tv shows and movies was excellent. Very diverse. The crew were also very responsive to anything we asked (water, questions, etc...) They gave me good advice regarding my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plane was an older model, so the touch screen was a bit unresponsive. Our tvs were shut off for the first two hours because of a glitch."
Cons: "Seats elbow room was insufficient."
Pros: "not so many people in my flight, the crew were so nice and very helpful."
Cons: "first meal was bad,I requested low fat meal and they gave me the beef something which was meh!"
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"
Pros: "They got us there safely"
Cons: "We did not get the seating booked online The room in the terminal at the boarding gate was extremely small and inadequate. It created much anxiety and discomfort among the passengers. Some were disgruntled."
Cons: "The same comment as above."
Pros: "Crew took a post card photo of whole family .. Provided toys ..books for kids .. Small things but made difference.. Crew were nice and fast"
Cons: "Food was not good chicken smelled .. Taste not good"
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Touch screen at seat was not responsive. Took many presses on the screen to get it to respond."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Pros: "Best airline I have had the chance to fly with. Right up there with Virgin - this time it surpassed. Great staff, lots of room, clean, amenities (blanket, pillow, toothbrush, eye mask, earphones for the movie ), 2 quality meals + meal voucher for overlay redeemable at a variety of options."
Cons: "Response time (over an hour) on requests. I don't believe there was internet available on the second flight?"
Pros: "Great food. Decent comfort but only because the plane was pretty empty. Crew was great but they kept disappearing. People need to sleep, sure, but I felt a little abandoned at times. Good selection for movies and tv."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport was a mess. There were at least 15 people working at the gate, fooling around. Meanwhile we were all sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting to board. It was a bit rude."
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Service as always top notch on Emirates. We traveled with a toddler and all the staff were very attentive."
Cons: "Food was very bland. Entertainment system was poor."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and on our way. Crew were nice."
Cons: "Flight Attendants again just zoom by with the trash bag and my hands were full of the trash and she didn't even notice. So I left on the empty aisle seat next to me. I went to sleep and when I woke up 30 mins later the trash was still sitting on the seat next to me."
Pros: "Frequency of service and inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "All the kids. Too many. Too many crying babies. It was like a day care in our section. I've never seen anything like it. Also, the ICE interface is a little confusing. And the touch screen a little weak."
Overall good experience with just the JetBlue Qatar should have kept the checked in luggage at the Boston Airport while rebooking the missed connection to MSP. That made it extra hard on passengers to carry their luggage to hotel and back and check-in again.
Food is good and tasty. Service also good.
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment choices."
Cons: "It was a long flight, frequent offers of snacks and drinks would’ve been great."
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "transit timing was a bit hectic."
Pros: "Crew were so good"
Cons: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in business class, almost no recline."
Pros: "flight attendants were not friendly enough."
Cons: "both flight from Bos-Doha, Doha-Hanoi was delayed"
Cons: "It could be better if they serve food from Doha to Islamabad."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable, easy boarding, good crew"
Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Pros: "The crew, the seat and catering"
Cons: "Qatar airways claims to have inflight wifi. But it is not true because it did not work in either of my flights. Food could have been better."
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"
Pros: "Crew and their promptness to assist"
Cons: "Vegetarian food - portion is too little. This has been the third time with Qatar and the food portion are too little."
Cons: "The changed the time of flight had to wait airport for 5 hrs"
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "Loved the food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room and space between the chair in front."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Lovely flight, start to finish. Attentive staff (but not too much so) and seats were comfortable, even in economy. Smooth front and back end to travels as well."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better."
Pros: "The aircraft was new, the flight was empty and the flight attendants were extremely attentive! It was great. Wish I had the same experience on the previous flight."
Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."
Cons: "my flight from Boston to Doha was deleyed and Qatar Airways have no arrangements for the passengers at the airport, I spent more then 15 hours in the transit on those chairs, there was no help provided by the airline"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"
Pros: "the flight was smooth, comfortable and a lot faster than DOHA - BOSTON."
Cons: "I could not check myself online! so i could not select the best seat."
Pros: "Staffs were helpful!"
Cons: "Food portion can be improved."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund."
Cons: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund or a voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy and amenities on board as well as the Istanbul airport as a connector."
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Cons: "Too tight seatings"
Pros: "flights on time. special meals I ordered were provided."
Cons: "very long check-in line. took over 1hr to check in. tried to check-in online in advance, but system did not allow me to do this."
Pros: "Slept in the flight for 5 hours and my toddler did too , was quiet in the cabin and this is the only good thing"
Cons: "Boarding they kept me and couple othee guys like seeiously 5 staff people at the gate doing nothing and you ask anyone please help i want to tag my stroller so i can board ans go on boarding line, no response only one peeson will work. the rest of the four are completely useless, i eventually told my wife to board with our daughter so they have the time to sit and prepare food etc and pull things they will need durimg flight Andi waited on this last staff person at the gate until she gave me the tag to the stroller and boarded later First meal they said either fish or beaf meat balls, i like both and no problem, but the crew said no fish anymore so you you will take beaf, OK Luckily neither my wife or daughter ate it Because after I ate it, 3-4 hrs later, I had the worst stomach pain ever and was in pain the rest of the flight and the remaining of the day after we landed FYI I ate just crackers and like all bread sandwiches all morning and was completely fine- just the beaf meat balls either not cocked or remains of non good beaf and other things- horrible food"
Cons: "Passengers were throwing up and the crew did not pass through the cabin to provide any sickness bags. I had to swap my first row seat to the last row as a passenger next to me had thrown up which had caused the entire seat to be dirty."
Pros: "Stewardess were very friendly and helpful, the food was reallz delicious. You have enough space for your leg even on Economy class."
Cons: "To long of a flight"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Pros: "All was great, until..."
Cons: "... the person in front of me reclined their seat. That was the end of my comfort. I’m 5.11”- 1.80cm. Couldn’t watch tv, had trouble eating."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is obviously outdated and very crowded. Only one restroom for a huge area around gates 300-309."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seats on the way to Istanbul were extremely small. One of them was broken and did not recline. Food was not good."
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Cons: "On the registration checking in in Boston Logan Airport they did not tell me that I as an american citizen must have a visa. After arriving to Turkey they refused me to get in and sent me back to the states. I want refund all my expenses on this trip."
Pros: "I bought a ticket for three persons: my wife, my daughtet and me. I am Nigerian, my daughter American, and my wife's Turkish. However, because of the diplomatic row between Turkey and the U.S., my daughter was refused entry into Turkey. Turkish airlines' policy was to refund the ticket of any American caught in this row. They said they will refund my one month old daughter's ticket. However, my wife and i will not receive a refund. We bought the three tickets together. Our ticket numbers ended in 235...51, 235...52, and 235...53. However, they will not refund our whole money by cancelling the ticket but only that of my daughter. So this is the question: Does Turkish airline want me to leave my one-month old baby in the U.S. and tavel with my wife to Turkey? What kind of parents will we be if we were to abandon our daughter to take a trip to Turkey. Even, the people in Turkish airlines will judge us evil parents, yet that was exactly the only option they gave us. Lose your daughter or lose your ticket money. They will not even just change our iternary or give us another destination we suggested without penalties which are almost 3/4 of our initial ticket price. They just made away with our money. You cannot say, 'We are cancelling tickets for American citizens' but make no exception for parents of infant citizens. This is the height of criminality. So, me and my family couldn't take the flight and lost $1500. We had to buy another ticket by airfloat to get to Georgia. But Turkish airlines refused to even contact us on the refund for my daughter. A truly criminal enterprise."
Cons: "They had a vague refund policy for Americans, forgetting that American infants can also have none-American parents who are as much victims in this as the American infant. For them to be myopic and keep repeating talking points of their refund policy is unfortunate to say the least."

Cons: "No wifi at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, food relatively good for plane food."
Cons: "Crew was fine but not as friendly or cheerful as I'm used to flight attendants being. The leg room was pretty poor on this particular plane, there wasn't even space to put a small bag under the seat in front of me."
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"
Pros: "Comfort and boarding was well done, comfort is really good"
Cons: "Crew was little bit nervous and not nice all the time!"
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "It was a full plain but overall ok I will take this flight again"
Cons: "Horrible customer service. We paid in case of change in flight plan .your airline said no money back."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "The seats was comfortable"
Cons: "The price was good"
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Pros: "It was nice and easy trip to USA and back home to Moldova. Crew was attentive and helpful. Food was good and plenty to drink."
Cons: "It was red eye, and the light in the cabin did not turn off for a long time."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "good selection of movies free drinks"
Cons: "food was not too good"
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, the entertainment screen haven't changed since 2001 i guess; very bad quality, and it broke down at the middle of flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was very good. We had a 19 hour lay-over, pleasantly spent in a new, very comfortable hotel to which we were shuttled and from which we were returned to the airport the next morning -- hotel/shuttle comped, as was the impressive breakfast at the hotel. We will definitely fly TurkishAir again. The staff was excellent and the in-flight entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm during the flight. No personal air vents to help cool down. That is my only small complaint."
Pros: "The food was excellent on this airline. The service was great. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Sadly the airlines treat us like cattle now the way they squeeze us in like sardines in their non-adjustable seats. This appears to be true on all most airlines."
Cons: "The flight left very early, without prior warning, so that I almost missed it, despite arriving at the gate at the designated boarding time! The breakfast was also barely edible, which was a surprise as the other times I have flown Turkish the food has been delicious."
Cons: "Both my bags came back damaged--- one had the handle ripped off and the other the TSA approved look was jammed."
Pros: "nice large screens for entertainment."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was too warm making the flight rather uncomfortable."
Pros: "My check-in experience was very bad. I was doing a business class check-in which was not at all a "business" class experience. The agent was very inexperienced and rude."
Pros: "Arrived early, nice bus. Class lounges"
Cons: "Friendly flight attendants, more comfort . Better food. Faster service"
Pros: "I enjoying having an aisle seat plus two empty seats next to me. I appreciated that you are conserving plastic cups. Keep up the conservation!"
Cons: "All of our luggage was lost and did not arrive in Prague"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work very well. ( picture was fine but the function buttons were terrible)."
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Pros: "Cuteous service"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, nomlegroom, impossible when set in front reclined. Breakfast food meager."
Pros: "Great service and timeliness."
Cons: "I wasn’t offered earphone headset so I could not enjoy entertainment."
Pros: "Seating space was fair"
Cons: "Too hot"
Pros: "Staff, very good."

Pros: "Sandwiches seeved"
Cons: "Plane was 1/2 hr late due to computer issues"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and professional. The food was good too. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."
Cons: "Very little leg room, when perso in front of you reclines it’s impossible to open table"
Pros: "The flight was fine. However, because of a potential snow storm in Boston for 3/21, the flight with Lufthansa was cancelled. We were switched to TAP Portugal for the 22nd. When we arrived at Logan airport, we were told by TAP the flight is overbooked, but there is a chance we will get seats. We did get seats at the last moment, always kept abreast by TAP representatives. The flight was a non-stop flight, leaving at 6 PM arriving by 6 AM, far better than the connections with changes the day before."
Cons: "Comfort was good because flight was not full and I didn't have someone sitting next to me. Otherwise the seats are too cramped and crowded in Economy. Also had to call to find out if I had to pay for seat assignment. Couldn't find information on website. Had difficulty finding correct phone number and getting through to customer service."
Pros: "-Flight attendants were wonderful, courteous, and attentive to all. -The pilots kept us informed of the status of the flight -The flight departure and arrival were on time as promised."
Pros: "Like food and stagf"
Pros: "If you want to improve you need more staff to service massive numbers of travellers."
Cons: "Most of it okay except add more toilets or arrange a proper way to deal with large numbers of travellers"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; food was adequate"
Cons: "Seats seem a bit close to one another, with little knee room"
Pros: "High quality service, attentive flight attendances, as always on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, easy boarding"
Cons: "Horrible food, very small, cramped seats. The cabin was extremely cold, even with my jacket on."
Pros: "Very smooth flight, great service. Chose the first row in economy which had tons of legroom. Connected in Frankfurt, very easy connection."
Cons: "Passport control in Frankfurt doesn't open until 530a so we all had to wait in line. The TV monitor was not as sensitive and would fall easily downwards sometimes."
Pros: "It was one of the best flight experiences in my life. Flights on time and suitcases delivered immediately."
Pros: "Nice plane. On time, excellent service, great entertainment options. I almost always fly Lufthansa as it’s the best value for the price."
Cons: "Staff wasn’t particularly friendly, seats were the most uncomfortable ever"
Cons: "Stroller damaged by cargo people"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, efficient connection."
Cons: "Food was below average - even considering discount tourist class seat."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"
Pros: "Comfort, food, service - all were superb."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Perfect service from crew members. Comfortable seats. Wonderful pilots!"
Cons: "Cramped boarding area."
Pros: "Comfortable seating so it was easy to sleep. It was a night flight and I spent most of this flight, eating dinner and breakfast and sleeping. Great cabin attendants who accommodated every need without being requested."
Cons: "The check in and boarding at Logan airport was horrendous. The gate attendants didn't provide the same quality of attention and information that the inflight crew did."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding was fast, easy, great. The crew was very nice and good. The overall service was excellent."
Cons: "the food was on medium level compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was perfectly on time. Pilots were excellent and crew very attentive."
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "comfort, crew"
Cons: "long delay which made me miss my connecting flight, poor choice of on-board entertainment"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Cons: "A large airport with gates very far apart...connecting flights booked too closely together! I got to gate for next Lufthansa flight and was denied access"
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Overall the flight was mostly fine. It was a huge plane, but boarding and exiting were efficiently handled by the crew. The seats were comfortable and there was sufficient leg room. Meals were totally acceptable for an international flight, and the complimentary booze was immensely appreciated."
Cons: "My biggest gripe, however, was with the malfunctioning entertainment system directly in front of my wife's seat. The screen intermittently flickered on and off, and would go black for long streches of time. Kudos to the attentive crew for trying their best to fix the device during the flight, but their efforts did not solve the problem. It was disappointing not to have a working entertainment system for such a long international flight--it would have made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "A new plane, the service was good."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. The cabin temperature was set very high (~75f or higher) the entire flight without any individual vents for airflow, so that many passengers were uncomfortable and sweating during the flight. The food provided was poor quality (for the meal, I chose chicken which was boiled pieces of chicken without any flavor - I feed my cats better!). I will try and avoid flying this airline in the future at all costs."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was very pleasant and supportive of families with children"
Cons: "The seats are designed for individuals who weight less than 100 lbs and no taller than 5'5". Granted, this was an economy seat. However, I should be able to sit in a seat without the seat in front of me literally 6 inches away from my face. I have traveled internationally countless times, but never have experienced such an uncomfortable flight. I will never fly with Lufthansa internationally again.not because of the crew, because their head office insists on squeezing every inch out of their planes without regard for passenger comfort."
Pros: "Easy boarding, except for delay leaving Munich. Crew was very accommodating, saw to every need I had. Entertainment made the 8 hour flight seem to go by faster."
Cons: "Food was not tasteful or enjoyable."
Cons: "There was no indication at Kayak that there is a charge to pick a seat before the day of the flight. I understand premium choice, but this was for every seat reservation. The seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "I have liked everything in lufthansa there was nothing to complain about thanks lufthansa for your respectful and helpful"
This was a rough one. The flight itself was fine, and it was nice to have a little Austrian culture on the way to the US. Check-in with Lufthansa at the Munich airport was very unsatisfying - even worse than checking in to a US domestic flight. Long lines, rude service - the first time in my life that I've had an airport check-in person proactively criticize me. And on top of that, they lost my luggage between Vienna and Newark. I waited at the baggage claim area until all the bags were off, and only at the very end did I discover my bags weren't there. By then it was too late to make my connecting domestic flight, even though I had a nearly two hour layover in Newark. A storm was blowing across the northeast, and the lines to change to a new flight were 50 people long. I ended up spending the night (on my own nickel) at an airport hotel and continuing my flight the next day. Even with an 18 hour delay they still hadn't found a way for my luggage to catch up to me. Overall, a pretty lousy experience.
Cons: "lastminute.com was completely unhelpful in assisting with any changes to my itinerary. They repeatedly provided me with incorrect information that sent me on a wild goose chase."
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"
Cons: "Seat spacing is small, to the point that it's impossible to remain in the seat few hours without physical pain in your body"
Cons: "Nothing. The plane was clean, everything was on time, and everyone was polite and professional."
Pros: "crew was great ,seats was better than good"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best"

Pros: "The wafer bar. Pilot had a good landing in high winds and snow."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok."
Cons: "There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!"
Pros: "Both the Lufthansa crew and the well thought out layout of Frankfurt International made it a lot more comfortable to travel."
Pros: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Pros: "Overall it was a good trip and staff was helpful."
Pros: "continium of previous service provided"
Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"
Cons: "Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed."
Cons: "See red comment above."
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."

Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind and evetything was on time. The food is tasty."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Cons: "Boarding in Vienna was completely unorganized. Received zero instruction from crew on new boarding information."
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "except we could not do an online check-in"
Cons: "Delayed flight after an already long flight from the states"
Cons: "Flight from Budapest to Vienna was too hot and the AC was not working properly."
Pros: "The seats on Austrian airline are very comfortable"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage for the first two days of my trip. It really hindered my ability to enjoy my first couple days of a fairly short trip to a new country"

Cons: "nothing, it was a great flight from beginning to end"
Pros: "very short layover and my check luggage made it all the way home with no problems"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Pros: "When you travel with an infant it's already a difficult trip but it's really fraustrating when you find out that they didn't assign you to the seats with the baby bassanet, and when I went to the counter to fix the problem instead they change our window seats to an isle seats without even asking or notifying us with the changes, and they when I asked how come you don't automatically assign infant reservations to infant seats their excuse was what if there were more infants than available infant seats and they already gave out those seats with extended leg space to others who already had paid for it, and surprisingly there were multiple of infants on board none of them in those seats but rather the other passengers who paid for it, so basically they got paid extra and you will only suffer for almost 10 hrs so they can make extra profit. NEVER AGAIN AUSTRIAN AIRLINES!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment on board was useful"
Cons: "5 hour delay. One staff member said there would be a delay, the second said there was no delay and after a couple hours the delay was confirmed. I was told the flight was full without the attendant even checking, flight was actually not even close to full. Nobody wanted to help and do their job, they just want to send you on your way."
Cons: "It was pretty chilly on the flight throughout the entire way. Please use more heat next time. Thank you!"
Cons: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."
Pros: "Good service overall"
Cons: "I had no notification about luggage fee in airport upon registration."

Pros: "The food was exceptional for any airline I am a world traveler and the food was bar none the best airline food I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Service was excellent! I will recommend both Austrian Air and Kayak"
