Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Though I was never sent an email for my daughter's check in, I had a different reservation for her but still under my name and same email, when I called on the phone the people were pleasant. They still never provided me with an email though and information allowing me to have my daughter checked in. they only provided me with her reference number."
Cons: "All in all we had a poor experience and my family and I were disappointed. I'm about to book yet another ticket for my brother, but this time I'm not considering Swiss Air. Just so you know, I'm a very positive person and appreciate every polite and courteous gesture. Unfortunately this experience didn't allow me to do so."
Pros: "A good airline and a good flight. Lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "Zurich is a confusing Airport, where signs are not obvious, and the queues are poorly formed. They should improve that for sure."
Pros: "It was an 8.5 hour flight and we got fed 2 meals, 2 snacks and had lots of beverage breaks! We were delayed a little but it was due to an issue in France, not anything to do with the airplane, and the captain found a solution faster than he had originally said he would (with the help of the tower of course)."
Cons: "The legroom in economy is just as bad as you would expect."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."
Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Food was tasty and of decent proportions, entertainment, while somewhat limited in selection, contained a number of compelling movies bar I enjoyed. I had a bulkhead seat, which was exceedingly comfortable"
Cons: "USB port was broken in the seat, but enjoyed the entertainment offered that I didn't need it."
Pros: "Best flight crew experience ever"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Cons: "Expired cheese. Loudest plane I have ever been on."
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Cons: "On the flight to Zurich the passenger behind me gave me a difficult time about reclining my seat back but keep in mind he had his reclined. Coming back to Newark the gentleman behind my boyfriend made a comment how he didn't have room due to his seat being reclined. The passenger next to us was arguing with the passenger in front of her because she didn't want that person to recline their seat back. I have never experienced such rude people on a flight and I realize this is beyond your control. It made for a very uncomfortable and stressful flight. Maybe signs can be posted or a message when booking your flight that ALL passengers have a right to recline seats and if space is an issue for your comfort then upgrade to business class for more room."
Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."
Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"
Pros: "Everything except the earphones was great"
Cons: "The earphones are bad and connector is 2 pins, so couldn't use mine."
Pros: "Again, crew and food."
Cons: "I will only say that I am writing this review as we are sitting on the plane in Newark where we are waiting for our gate for a half an hour already and we do not know when we would get off board. And oh yeah... the flight was originally late for about an hour too! Simply unacceptable!"
Cons: "Unorganized and hectic at the gate; personnel were rude and unhelpful. I was asked numerous times to Leave and let them do their work" when I asked why I was on standby and what that meant."
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Sound for on-screen entertainment not working. It was static-y all the time and completely cut out the rest of the time. I made various attempts to solve the problem, switching headphones, switching to my own headphones (which can't really be done because they have a two-prong jack and personal headphones are always one). I tried watching different movies, programs, music...it wasn't the material I was watching that was the problem. I asked the flight attendant to reset my console. That didn't work either. I just ended up reading my book the entire 9 hour trip."
Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Room in economy"
Pros: "This direct flight from Zurich-Newark is pretty comfortable, especially if you get the two seats at the either sides of the plane (it's a 2x4x2 config in Coach). The food is really good, they are generous with drinks and the crew is really friendly and smiling! Would take this flight again without any reservations in future!"
Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."
Cons: "Delay and lost the luggage for the second time"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."
Pros: "Food was adequate for economy. Free drinks on trans-Atlantic flights are a nice perk. Cabin crew is friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to incoming aircraft. It was probably not the airline's fault. Berlin Tegel gate area is too small for international flight - not enough seats and nowhere else to wait after security."
Pros: "The food was delivered fast. The meals were delicious, especially the chicken and polenta. I also appreciated the ice cream and I enjoyed the selection of movies and television. I also appreciated the map and trip information display."
Pros: "Professional Staff; best food on international flight ever."
Cons: "The boarding process at Zurich airport was a mess. There was no communication at the gate to tell passengers what to do or where to stand"
Cons: "I tried to get on an earlier flight to travel with my husband and every person claimed they couldn't help me. I called the airline who said there were plenty of seats on the flight, but they told me I needed someone onsite to help me make the change. Not great customer service."
Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Asked 3 different personnel at Zurich airport at no one could help with wifi or how it could be accessed since both wifi scanning machine in Gate E area weren't working. It just seemed that they were incompetent or weren't willing to help. Crew on flight were very nice. Vegetarian food options better than chicken / meat options."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice and organized."
Cons: "Flight delayed , and while waiting for long time I was not sure which gate to wait infront."
Pros: "food was pretty good, nice selection of movies"
Cons: "cramped seats"
Pros: "This flight left on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Not worse than other international flights. Entertainment system better than Lufthansa or United. This plane used the 2 jack connection for headphones, which prevents one from using own/normal stereo jack headphones. The provided phones are terrible had to be cranked really loud because of the plane noise, it was almost impossible to understand dialogues in movies."
Pros: "Friendly service. Very attentive crew,"
Cons: "Seating comfort is mediocre to poor. I know I only flew economy class, however, sardines have more space."
Pros: "Great service on the board service, plenty of drinks during flight, decent food on economy class, spotless clean plane."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful, even more so as we traveled with two small kids. Very professional, high standards even for economy!"
Pros: "Good communication, helpful and friendly staff, usually on time, and better than average food & beverage options."
Cons: "Entertainment system is limited and touchscreen was not calibrated so I had to use the handset."
Cons: "I became infected with a head cold in the airplane and after I arrived at my destination I got sick. The person next to me was well, so was I. Is this a recurring problem? What can be done? Maintaining a cleaner air conditioning system?"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment, the food, the frequency with which they passed out water, and the crew were all excellent. Online check in was smooth and easy to transfer to my iPhone wallet. Loved the chocolate at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "The delay in flight time by 40 minutes was annoying, but understandable due to weather and delay in connecting flights."
Pros: "Almost everything was good. Crew was friendly and courteous. They treated out kids specially well, with puzzles etc. When the entertainment system stopped responding the crew member stopped by more than once to "send" our choice of movies to our screen. (Since the keypad became non functional.) In-spite of the glitch we would fly Swiss again!"
Cons: "Entertainment system was buggy and stopped working mid flight. Headphones were of extremely poor quality."
Cons: "Shortly after take-off, the person in front of me put her seat back as far as it could go. I was in the last seat our economy row, by the window. Snacks were served almost immediately, and then dinner. For a brief time the passenger in front of me had her seat up for dinner. However, by the time I had finished dinner, I felt captured in my seat, It took a long time for the trays to be collected after dinner. I wished I'd brought anxiety medication. Could have been a better selection of movies."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"
Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Smoothest long flight I’ve ever had. No hassles checking in, boarding or leaving the aircraft. Bags checked through to final destination without any problem. Good employees at the check-in counter and at the boarding gate. Service was good at LAX."
Cons: "Cabin service somewhat spotty. I was not served breakfast and had to ask for a meal even though all those sitting around me were served. My wife did not get the coffee she requested even though it was promised twice. Trash accumulated at our seat making use of the tray awkward. I tried to pre-pay for extra luggage on-line before the flight but the web site would not allow me to do so. We paid $100 per extra bag at check-in."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good, but told the flight over was better. I flew another airline. Had no issue checking one bag in for free, but I think that is standard on an international flight."
Cons: "Entertainment systems take up foot/bag space underneath the seats. Was not able to get more than one glass of wine, even though I missed the first beverage service, that is my fault though, but I don't recall it being an issue getting a drink between services. Entertainment systems had contrast issues and it seemed like a lot of people 8 - 10 had issues since they were using iPads instead of the built in monitors. A lot of wear showing on the entertainment systems remotes."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "On time, everything normal."
Cons: "Seat space so small that my knees were up against the next seat, even without it tilting back."
Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment system, free adult beverages and boarding process"
Cons: "I don't like that they have you pay extra for picking seats that have no extras. No preboarding. No extra legroom."
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "Food and beverage choices excellent"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Flight D001 (Delta / Virgin, LHR to JFK) Staff were terrific. The food was the best I've had so far (and I fly a lot!) The choice of entertainment was varied and excellent. Flight was smooth and captain was very communicative."
Cons: "Chair kept snapping back to position from recline (33E). Man behind me kept banging on the screen behind my head Inspite of announcement not to do do from cabin crew. If they could catch ppl doing that and say something that would be great :-) (although I realize if course the this isn't their fault.)"
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats and quick flight, great combination for a long trip."
Pros: "No food provided limited entainment"
Cons: "Chairs were comfortable"
Pros: "I highly appreciated the kind care of all the staff in the plane; especially the great selection of food. Thank you very much! For a plane it was really 5 * service."
Cons: "the correspondence between the staff. On my way to New York, I was brought to the lounge to wait until my boarding will start but nobody picked me up as promised, so I had to walk the way. I needed a wheel chair as well on my way back, extra ordered it at the check in, they said it is noted in the system. But nobody was there to pick me up. When I finally found someone, I was brought to a place, being asked to sit down and wait where I still had to pass stairs to come to the passport controll. From there noone picked me up, so I had to go my way alone with pain in my leg. I don't want to argue, I managed it even with pain but I wonder what happens with people if they cannot walk anymore at all. My advice would be that you work on to improve this service. We extra booked business class but this service was not worth being called business class."
Cons: "The only kosher foodi is no good must change"
Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."
Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "To whom this may concern: I am writing to express my absolute dissatisfaction and poor experience with the customer service and lack of working amenities on flight #TK11 leaving Istanbul into New York City, JFK. It was sadly a horrible ending to my trip and left me with a very unfortunate impression of Turkish Airlines. Less than an hour into the flight I spoke with a flight attendant making him aware that the USB port was not working so I was unable to charge my phone the entire flight. In addition, the wifi was not working. This is a huge problem because I planned on working remotely that day and my job was under the same presumption. The attendant blamed my phone and did not take my word that I was unable to connect until I insisted further and another passenger in front of me turned to my rescue and agreed with me stating the wifi was spotty and only worked for a short period of time until ultimately shutting off. The attendant did not apologize but said he would check on the port and the wifi and would get back to me. I followed up several times and he fed me the same lines until I grew frustrated that I was being completely ignored all while losing a day's work. During the last 20 minutes of the flight I decided to finally walk to the back of the plane and follow up for the last time with someone else. I explained the situation to the other attendant who seemed as though this was the first time he was hearing about this issue and he spoke to his chief who gave me a customer feedback form to fill out. No one offered me a different window seat to fix the port problem or even Miles Plus points for the inconvenience even though I requested it. I have never felt more disrespected and dismissed on a flight before this experience. As a star alliance member (CX765361), I frequently fly for work and personal trips and out of loyalty and assurance that I would be able to fulfill my work duties remotely given the features this airline promotes. I chose Turkish Airlines because it was apart of this program. This experience did not uphold the company's reputation and by flying with Turkish Airlines I completely missed a full day's work, deadlines and was behind when I physically returned to work. For the inconvenience, stress, disrespect and empty promises, I am requesting that Turkish Airlines reimburse me the portion of that flight. Best, Rachael"
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Pros: "The crew bumber was short fot the full flight. The food used to be better in THY."
Pros: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Cons: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."
Cons: "I missed this flight also and tried to get a refund for it because the times were not good for me."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and 36 hours later, I am stuck at a hotel with 100s of other people none of who have a clue how to contact the airline as all the phones are not being attended to. The Indian sales and reservation team as well as the Turkish customer care are not responding to the situation at all."
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: "Turkish Airlines was the best experience I've ever had in economy, and I've traveled all over the world. Food, service, and entertainment choices were excellent. Thanks!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "I was seated next to someone who moved a lot when the slept and the handrail barrier was not enough to keep me safe from involuntary jabs. Also, the touch screen wasn't working properly but after a few trial and errors, I realized that I could use the remote as an alternative to the touch screen."
Pros: "The food and service, generally, were all quite good, as I have come to expect from Turkish Airlines. Turkish Airlines remains my preferred airline for all travel."
Cons: "The server handling my section of the aircraft seemed slower and less experienced, but this did not have a significant impact on my experience. The temperature in the cabin seemed to fluctuate quite a bit and my entertainment screen froze and seemed to shut down halfway through the flight."
Pros: "I was very comfortable as there were empty seats in my row and I could sleep a bit. Also I have a bad hip and the extra room was very helpful for adjusting my position as needed. food was good and staff pleasant. I enjoyed 2 movies."
Cons: "The bathroom facility which I used on the plane was very dirty at the time I used it."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "It was great trip. Great movie selection"
Cons: "More drink service would be nice"
Cons: "The airport"
Pros: "Excellent service!!!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like about it."
Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled twice then delayed. I ended up missing my connection in Istanbul and having to overnight there. Turkish Airlines did provide hotel accommodation to passengers in similar situation, however only after wondering around the airport for over an hour to find the TK hotel desk and waiting for an additional hour to be assigned a hotel room and be transferred there, only to learn that I had to check out within two and a half hours after checking in to be at the airport 4 hours before the flight departs. When I finally arrived at the airport, I had to go through a security screening (because I was not suspicious for having entered the country and exiting only 5 hours later). When all of that was done, I approach the check in desk and asked if my seat can be changed, as I had spent the previous 2 days trying to get on my connecting flight, spending over 8 continuous hours at an airport and having had a nightmare night. I asked for an exit row seat or anything in the front of the plane. I was literal told that if I did not like the seat given I did not have to fly. I took the seat originally assigned and spent 11 and a half hours sitting next to a toilette on the airplane with a crying baby next to me and in front of me. To top it all, it took 2 hours to get my luggage once arrived at JFK. I usually love traveling on Turkish airlines and I understand not all of the above is directly depending on them, but considering how awful the entire experience was and how little I asked to be happy, I found them to be extremely unaccommodating on this occasion."
Cons: "flight had hours of delays barely anyone speaks or understands English.. Lack of help from everywhere from checking in to boarding to take off won't recommend to anyone."
Pros: "The food, the stuff for sleeping"
Cons: "The boarding: too much stand by which leads to confusions and anxieties. I personally believed this problem of creating too much stand by could have been prevented in advance."
Pros: "Great movie choices and food"
Cons: "People were screaming because of turbulence and we got zero communication from staff. Terrible on and off boarding. Worst terminal."
Pros: "Business class was great. Comfortable lay flat seat. Tasty food and lots of it. Great entertainment system with endless high quality options."
Cons: "Istanbul airport does not have enough gates to handle their growth in traffic. As a result both my incoming and outgoing flights were embarked by bus from the tarmac. We passed by another 30 planes in the same situation. So it was not a one off."
Cons: "They let passengers on who were not supposed to be on the flight. Consequestnly the flight way massivle delayed as they were trying to sort out the mess with the numbers, wrong passengers. they deboarded one passenger and asked everyone to search their overheaed baggages for foreign things. caused a scare among the passengers but wast fully explained. boarding was very sketchy and felt unsafe, unsecure."
Cons: "No luggage arrived for 60 people or more. On my first flight to Sofia from Istanbul i miss my flight for technical reasons and then from Istanbul to NY no suitcases arrived. Just terrible experience. Never ever again will travel with Turkish Airlines. They suck!!!!"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "The food plentiful, and the entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Seats so not comfortable. Boarding always takes forever and this flight takes off late, Every time. Sigh."
Cons: "We were asked to board and then sat on the plane for 6 hours while they de-iced the plane, waited for a new pilot, and replaced the food. It made our 11 hour trip close to 17 hours and was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything was amazing! Like flying first class for a coach price!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was excellent. Travel necessities bag was lovely and very useful!"
Cons: "Customer Service at the New York airport was rude and not professional.

I had to beg her to help me and look for other options."
Pros: "Respect service comfort"
Cons: "The food was terrible and caused me continued stomach problems for days and the entertainment system broke mid flight...."
Pros: "The departure was on-time The flight was smooth and quiet"
Cons: "Meal was tasteless No tea was available during the most part of the flight, and at the end, when tea was served, it was too dark and strong No green tea was available at all"
Pros: "the first meal was very good for airline food. The second meal, okra over rice, was a joke. Not even sure why they bothered."
Pros: "The gift bag designed for comfort was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The staff on this particular flight weren't the friendliest."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the food quite decent. Best of all was that the flight was half-empty."
Cons: "It was one of these new planes that you now see all over Europe where the seat backs are half as thick as the old ones - basically what you'd find on a bus. Not that awful if you're doing a 2-hour flight somewhere, but on an 11-hour one (Istanbul to JFK) they are excruciatingly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Lots of free space on this particular flight to sleep."
Cons: "There were no toiletry offered on this flight."
Pros: "Awesome food. Good choice of alcoholic beverages, great entertainment."
Cons: "One of the worst knee room."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Disorganized service, poor food quality"
Pros: "Great pre-flight experience at the IST Business Class lounge; carried over to the flight."
Cons: "General disorganization.Instead of boarding by zone or rows,called all passengers at once.Very poor discipline.Locals just walk in.Chaos.Also usually when they need my services on Flights they give points or at least say thank you.I do not know what happened to the patient.Two of us had come up when they called for help.Both from the States and they did not have anybody else."
Pros: "There was an incredibly large passenger next to me and I was essentially afforded only a quarter of my seat. It is not really fair for anyone to have to sit next to someone taking up twice their seat."
Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Cons: "I couldn’t sleep in a chair... wish I could"

Cons: "mi luggage has not arraive! im in the city with out stuff and it will delay my trip schedule"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It took longer than expected due to the hurricane. When we arrived, there was no gate so we had to sit on the runway forever. Then the gate checked bags took forever. I was supposed to have a 1.5 hour layover. I barely made my connection as I only had 20 minutes left until takeoff by the time we got off the plane."
Pros: "Pilot welcome to the plan was very nice seats was comfortable food was good"
Cons: "Crew attaitude is not really pleasant with passengers"

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "It was great. The flight attendants are always helpful to us."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Cons: "2 1.5 hour delays for things that Delta messed up"

Cons: "Uncertainty re connections at JFK provoked some anxiety but the pilot and crew were helpful in allaying that."

Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"

Pros: "Clam flight Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints, completely satisfied!"
Pros: "the Ground team from Israel to New York was amazing and very helpful."
Cons: "Arrived to the airport over 2 hours early and was told that my husband and I were put on standby because Air France overbooked the flight. I told them this was unacceptable - we had purchased a ticket and had seats reserved. And, typically if a flight is overbooked, the airline will offer a later flight option to everyone at the gate with an incentive to change it instead of randomly choosing passengers to bump off. They were rude and unapologetic and instead of putting us on the next flight 2 hours later, they made us stand at the counter for over an hour until they waited for all the other passengers to check in. Then 45 minutes before the flight took off, they told us that 2 seats opened and we would need to run through security and to the gate in order to get it on time. They also didn't have seats next to each other -- so the window and aisle seats that we had reserved were given away and we both had middle seats on opposite ends of the plane. Even though they acknowledged that we did everything right and they chose us at random, Air France was completely unprofessional and rude throughout the entire process."
Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."
Cons: "Announcements were difficult to hear. ?static"
Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "United/ LH first called it a mechanical delay....we waited....then the weather caused this mini plane not to take off....long story short...we had to stay in a hotel...nobody gave us a voucher...our helped us with anything....very poor service"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
Pros: "I Luz Myriam will give to Lufthansa 10 qualification!!! in Overall, Boarding, Crew, Food , Entertainment, but 8 about Confort"
Cons: "Just the air conditions was too cold I asked the attendant if can warm my place a little, but she told me the other passenger are warm, she doesn't take care about me, NOT COOL!!"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly. The plane was very clean. The service was excellent, and my husband and I were impressed by the food quality. They even hand out wet wipes for you before serving food, so you can feel clean! I felt like the seats were pretty normal in terms of size and space in economy class, but obviously, it would have been nice to have a tiny bit more space. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "nothing :)"
Pros: "leg room, entertainment, the pilot was informative throughout the flight"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."

Pros: "food was very good-no plastic flatware! crew attentive, cabin temp good, great selection of movies, hot towels perfect"
Cons: "coffee awful"
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "The flight attendants were good - they run a tight ship, both from a safety perspective and looking out for the passengers. That said, they should have allowed me to move to any open seat, except first class, to accommodate any passenger with broken equipment at the seat they selected."
Cons: "This old plane had broken seats with broken entertainment equipment. After changing seats twice, my ultimate seat still had a loud buzz in the sound system. The flight attendants should be allowed to seat an inconvenienced passenger in any open seat in the event of broken equipment. Space in the seats was ridiculously tight for a 7 hr international flight."
Pros: "Your airline is Awesome. Thank you So much."
Pros: "No delays, overall good experience, Good food not exceptional."
Pros: "excellent. free drinks, food was delicious. attendants were wonderful."
Pros: "The interior of the plane was nice. The new-design seats, even though they were thin, were fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Way too little legroom. I expected better from Lufthansa. The United flight (767-400) I took back from Germany had at least 1.5 inches more legroom and was far more comfortable as a result. I had a good impression of Lufthansa before, but will avoid the airline now."
Pros: "Entertainment is great, although I did not use it much this flight"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, tighter than I remember last time I flew Luft."
Pros: "All around wonderful trip and experience starting with the flight. The pilots and crews courtesy was fabulous. I arrived ahead of schedule by more than an hour. Thank you Lufthansa! I will be flying with you again soon."
Cons: "I had no dislikes... just a grand time..."
Pros: "Traveled with my dog. They had empty row so United moved us there so dog can be comfortable under the middle seat. Staff was very nice and offered water and ice for the dog."
Cons: "to get with the bus on the airfield and walking up the stairs on the plane. People getting on the plane from the front and the back door and between the small walking ile you need to pass passengers , crazy - sounds like not organized"
Pros: "Staff were all very professional and courteous. Flight on time."
Cons: "Having to sit in last row."
Pros: "Free movie. Good take off and landing by Pilot."
Cons: "Flight attendants were professional, but discourteous. It was not Luftansa as advertised but A UNited airline Plane & crew terrible ! The flight attendants Made you feel like you couldnt ask for anything extra! (Water, juice). The meal wasn't heated all the way, breakfast snack was cold. The seats seemed extra cramped no leg room. You were literally laying on the passenger next to you! They also didnt allow people with children, babies to do advanced boarding it took up so much time! I payed for extra leg room on my return flight which was cancelled by the way due to weather then they gave upgrades to others for free..! While the return flight was delayed I was kept in airport for 8hrs before they cancelled it also unpleasant! That section of the airport had no food, all United Airlines offered us while waiting was sodas! Really? not again will i fly international with UA!"
Pros: "Love the friendly staff, highly interesting entertainment and comfortable seating options."
Pros: "honestly? nothing."
Cons: "3 hours late. it was operated by united airlines, it was the first and last time that I flew them, worst of the worst!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and nice people incl Kay! She was so helpful to me as I'm traveling internationally with 2 kids under 2"
Cons: "Comfort is horrible if your not in comfort rows with extra room. The food is ok but the staff were so consistent and offered food and drinks. The airline should allow pass gets with kid/kids to get on plane earlier not with reg bording passengers. It's horrible how rude people are and impatient!! This would hwlp"
Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."
Pros: "Everything was very nice. Flight was on time. The staff was nice. Food was good. Seats could have more space. But overall was great."
Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
Pros: "Great service and good very friendly"
Pros: "We came with a baby and were assigned a bassinet seat. The service was great. The food was excellent. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were nice. They tried to make everyone happy even though the flight was fully booked."
Cons: "My seat was terrible ( middle all the way in the back and the people next to me occupied both my armrests so i had almost no room to stretch so couldn't relax or sleep at all)) and the food was gross i got food poisoning from the last snack ( turkey sandwich ) and they didn't have any ginger ale."
Pros: "I was not worse than other airlines."
Cons: "It was not better than other airlines."
Pros: "Flight took off a couple of hours late due to problems in Frankfurt airport but everyone worked to help us with connecting flights."
Pros: "Got us there"
Pros: "Significantly more room, width and leg room, with footrests, business class wide arm rests, courtesy kit (socks, mask, toothbrush)... Great entertainment system and large screen. Beats the heck out of united and american!"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "First flight was canceled. We were rerouted through to Philadelphia to London to Frankfurt and on to Salzburg. Luggage lost in London still waiting on that."
Cons: "The seats werent very comfortable and there was a BIG language barrier with the crew."
Cons: "I booked the flight through Kayak - that in turn went through Airfare,com. I thought the flight was with Lufthansa - but it turned out to be with United for the return trip...trouble was no one told United until I checked in at the desk. I could not even check in on line. I spent a lot of time before hand - trying to get it sorted, In the end they said just show up and it will all be ok! Not a good experience."
Pros: "That we had a selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Got stuck in the last row in the middle of the plane. They ran out of turkey for dinner and got stuck with awful pasta. They should leave that to Italian chefs to make. I am glad I packed some snacks so that I could have something to eat besides the roll, dessert and small salad. The seats didn't recline fully like the seats in front of us so we were really cramped. They also skipped my husband when they came around with the drinks... we had to hit the call button. I will book my next trip with another airline."
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled without warning and offered zero options. They even turned off their phones to the entire public. Will never fly Lufthansa again. Ever."
Pros: "THE WOMAN AT THE BAGGAGE TRANSFER DESK WHO FOUND MY PHONE AND WAITED FOR ME AT MY GATE FOR 30 MINUTES TO RETURN MY PHONE. SHE WAS THE BEST!! The inflight entertainment. The pilot making up time for the one hour delay in takeoff for fog."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of replacement or total interior redo. The walk to the gate from the terminal is forever and once you are arrive there isn't anything to do but wait. The crew was OK but nothing more than doing the basics. While steerage is not expected to be comfortable a redo or new plane would make it better."
Pros: "Variety of Movies"
Cons: "parallel boarding of business and economy class, poor entertainment system quality. Functionality limited and even after 2 times rebooting no big improvement."
Pros: "They actually feed you good food and the crew's service is very fast. In-flight entertainment was wonderful."
Pros: "The goose dinner was good. Tthe attendants brought plenty of water throughout the flight"
Cons: "The announcements were hard to understand."
