Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "1.No punishment for smiling... 2.Giving us the bread (with clippers) is great but that is not enough if we (the passengers) didn’t wash our hands. 3.Operating the seats (2 buttons) May Not be as easy as you might think."

Pros: "The flight was slightly comfortable, there were more food and snacks options than in other aircraft companies."
Cons: "Some of the crew were very rude, making a point to show you that they were hassled by serving you. I thought that was poor service. The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."

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."

Cons: "Crew was little bit nervous and not nice all the time!"

Pros: "I was nervous to fly Turkish Airlines; however, the crew was professional and the experience was very positive. I felt safe and well cared for."

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: "Flight was great, booking agents, flight attendants all superb."
Cons: "Airport in Istanbul could use an upgrade. Poor gate directions and signs. No jetways, meaning they bus you out to the plane each time. This adds to time needed to change planes and may be inconvenient for older people who struggle with climbing stairs or carrying bags."
Pros: "food is always great, even if my flight is two hours or less. seats are comfortable and I enjoy the leg space."
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: "Lots of nice little amenities (lip balm, sleep mask). Tons of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Seats were small, old and uncomfortable."
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 acceptable for a person from the US. The seats were adequately comfortable but seats were shorter than our Istanbul to Dhaka flight."
Cons: "The leg room was too short for a six foot tall American."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Going on the bus to the plane"
Pros: "Hot towel, full beverage menu, free slipper toothbrush eye mask etc. large tv screens with a lot of movies etc. also the captain didn't come on every hour during a red eye flight to say something I didn't need to hear about which has happened on the last few longer flights I have been on. New interior of plane."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, seats were closer together than some other airlines."
Pros: "I see complaints from the other passengers about no USB available? Which isn't true. There were USB plugs next to the TV screens in front of the seats."
Cons: "One of the passengers on my flight had brought a child age 6-7 that was non-stop losing it's mind. Kicking and screaming. No one seemed to say anything or offer anything to the child or parent to make it stop but maybe there was a language barrier? That was my only complaint."
Cons: "Yolculuk genel anlamda iyiydi fakat bagajim kayboldu. Thy gibi bir kurumda bagaj kaybolmasini anlayamiyorum. Tum guvenimi kaybettim."
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."
Pros: "The price and timings"
Cons: "Cabin crew not accommodating as would not hang my coat which I never had any problem traveling internationally. Toilets very small and smelly. Toilet pack was good as they included slippers."
Pros: "nice large screens for entertainment."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was too warm making the flight rather uncomfortable."

Pros: "Fabulous service"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The downstairs bathrooms were great: five roomy clean bathrooms, always one available. The crew was superb, professional, kind, capable. The entire trip was perfection.

Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable, good blankets and lighting. Perfect for what I needed."
Cons: "Missed my flight because of other flight delayed. I had to rerouted through 2 extra airports."
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: "Comfort, choice in movies, leg room, toilets on one level and plenty, staff helpful"
Cons: "Direct flight, 10 days ago. Still missing a suitcase."
Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
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: "The entertainment was terrific for a long flight. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The service was very good throughout the whole trip."
Pros: "The staff were excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. I for got her name but the attendant who greeted us at our seats (57h & k) was so sweet. She made my wife and feel vey comfortable. Very attentive. We also trust Lufthansa to be on top of things"
Cons: "Sitting in a plane on a long flight but the staff made it easier and the entertainment options were very good."
Pros: "To compare with most of the company, you are in the top. I like the fact that the boarding was done well, the crew is efficient, quite, legroom, corridor room, may be the food can be improved. Quite and relaxing flight. I really appreciated."
Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"
Pros: "It was delightful to discover that Lufthansa serves delicious complimentary meals! So few US airlines do that. I also really liked the layout with the toilets downstairs."
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: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."
Cons: "No room in the seats. The food was poor. Pasta very dry tastless. 3 tbs if salad. One bite of desert."
Pros: "Nice crew, water waiting for me at my seat and other small amenities that made a big difference. Great entertainment system on board."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good entertainment"
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: "Most everything"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late and with no explanation"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The delay, otherwise fine"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food were fantastic, the crew was friendly, and everything was very clean."
Cons: "The connecting flight was late."
Pros: "Flights were not full, very nice! Entertainment system was vast and the quality was great, brand new movies and shows."
Cons: "More than one type of beer please, I was economy class so comfort will always me just ok, nothing to really be done there"
Cons: "Everything, this was a total nightmare, my flight left Boston two hours late and my connecting flight in Munich had already left for Pisa. They then put me on a flight that day to Rome so I could get a flight from there to Pisa and when I got to Rome they ended up printing me a wrong boarding pass to Pisa and I ended up in Florencewhich I then had to take a train to Pisa because there were no other flights going to Pisa from Florence that day and the topper is I still have no luggage as they LOST it."
Pros: "Got free upgrade to business class. Amazing experience."
