They refused to accommodate me for a 19 hour layover with a complimentary airport hotel stay, claiming there was an earlier flight--that was still 12 hours away, that I would have to pay to book anyway. Pure scam to get you to pay to upgrade your flight, pay for hotel or be condemned to stay in there airport for a whole day. Never ever again! Don't fly them!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed materially with little forewarning Service was poor"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."

Pros: "Long but ok"
Cons: "There is no reason to not like it."
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Cons: "food and long layover"
Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "Services must be improved as far as hospitality is. Concern"

Pros: "I got upgraded to business class"
Pros: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "The Emirates and the crew they are rude not a good plane to travel with they charge me $700 more rude service I hate the service I made a big mistake taking that plane"

Pros: "Flight attendant understood my need and gave me aisle seat. Was very sick"

Cons: "Inflight entertainment is a little stale. More recent movies would be great."

Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"

Cons: "my seat (head) was broken"
Pros: "Efficiency and personnel excelled in client service"
Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Entertainment system was good"
Cons: "On an 18 hour flight I was offered 1/3 of a cup of water or liquid about 3-4 times. They even rationed ice cubes. I had to ring the assistance bell any every 1-2 hours in order to stay hydrated the meals Consisted of a reheated TV dinner and 5 plastic wrapped versions of bread or processeed foods (bread sticks, cracked, cheese stick) normal you just overlook this stuff but when it's 18 hour flight you need actual food and water or else you'll risk dehydration."
Pros: "Very professional and very good in customer care"
Pros: "Hospitable staff ,friendly and humble. Wifi availability .Great on board atmosphere and spacious and comfortable seats. Entertainment was the Bob. Ambience was classic. I loved your choice of wine."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Safety, on time, A380 is better than B777 (comfort)"
Cons: "Food, i like the hot bread rather than cold bread"
Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."
Pros: "Flight attendants were patient and kind despite tension between passengers due to lack of overhead space."
Cons: "Very rough flight and every set of earphones were defective."
Cons: "My seat was broken and did not recline My luggage did't arrive and i had a conecting fly the same day to Buenos Aires and this create a big problem for me I hope i will receive my luggage son"
Cons: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"
Pros: "Movie starts as soon as seated"
Cons: "No Emirate staff presented to due with the 20+ hours delay. Just sent their representatives who are not powerful to make decisions and at the end we have many questions not answered. Eg. Any earlier reconnect flights? Any alternative airlines? What is the checkout time of the compensation hotel? Any meal compensation if not staying at their hotel? Etc."
Cons: "Transferring from an international flight to a domestic flight was difficult. This flight was a joint flight between Turkish airlines and China Southern, there should have been someone from China Southern to help us transfer when we landed. I asked the crew at the plane whether someone will help us transfer and they said yes, but there was none. At the very least, how to transfer to domestic flights has to be part of the customs video. Finding where to go was difficult for someone that does not know Chinese."
Pros: "They were helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment services on the plane"
Pros: "High Quality experience."
Cons: "Could have purchased through Turkish and saved money since I had to make a date change."
Pros: "The Flight crew was excellent - Inflight services were really good. However, the ground service and customer service was horrible!"
Cons: "In-ground service is terrible. Turkish Airlines on-ground staff and customer service staff don't know how to handle any problems. They are unconcerned and unhelpful. They just keep shrugging their shoulders."
Pros: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Cons: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."
Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"
Cons: "No Free WiFi in the airport, and the salad on the plane was taste-less. There was not entertainment device on the plane."
Cons: "Entertainment device was broken, and there was no crew passing by (without food or drinks) to ask him/her about it."
Cons: "Departure gate to far to get to! Changed gates didn’t notify on time . Waiting at gate to long."
Pros: "I like that the FAs gave us all the things needed for a comfortable flight...thanks."
Cons: "Flight from Copanhagen to Istanbul was delayed for an hour...computer malfunction was the reason. I was a little bit stressed because I had a connecting flight to Manila, was afraid i wouldn't make it. And also, no gate assignment yet for Istanbul to Manila. Since it was my first time to travel via Turkish Airline, not familiar with Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Staff friendly."
Cons: "Seats too tight. Very little leg space."
Pros: "Nothing. I was so disappointed with the whole experience."
Cons: "Everything. I paid a lot of money for this ticket. When I tried to check in yesterday I was denied. When I called the ticketing office, they explained that everything was fine with the ticket, and I would indeed have a seat, but I would have to go to the airport. I even asked them about the possibility of overbooking but they said that wasn't a risk. (I am Star Gold so I didn't think that was possible.) When at the airport they wouldn't give me a seat and they bumped me leading to many hours of confusion, a connection through Tanzania, and a loss of a night of sleep. And lots of stress. I know they de-prioritized the people who booked on Kayak. This was a miserable experience and unless you do something to fix this I will never use Kayak again."
Cons: "Hi, Your company lost one of my check-in bags. I am in Bucharest now, still waiting for my bag. Nobody knows where my bag is. Please, help find it! Under Doinita M Toranzo's name, big red bag! under Thank you!"
Cons: "Late into the flight there appeared to be a medical emergency taking place just a few rows ahead of me. No announcement was made; it was as though we were expected to ignore the situation. But with the lights in the cabin turned on, a small crowd gathered, and the passenger being vocal in his distress .. . a brief announcement would have been nice: Situation under control, no need to worry, flight will continue as scheduled. The passenger had a relapse a few hours later - again no acknowledgement from the crew to reassure those of us who could hear his cries of distress."
Cons: "No gangways."
Pros: "The food is the only good mentioned"
Cons: "Turkish airways is becoming delaying flights without any justification, that makes that every flight connection That I tried to make the laat two trips were lost , nobody tell you , unfortunately the poor client oriented services do not provide other alternatives, you as a passenger must be advising them how to solve your issues. Shame that they are loosing passengers based in their total lack of support"
Cons: "See above, very poor experience with Turkish airlines. On the flight to NY, I asked for some food (the cheese sandwiches) only to be told that they did not have enough for the flight and that they ran out. If you are going to offer something inflight, should you not make sure that you have enough of the item?"
Pros: "we ware attisefy for are first time in bisness clas"
Cons: "Late flight While in transit. They wouldn't pay for my meal in Istanbul because my overlay was 3 hrs"
Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The customer service in Istanbul airport (for Turkish Airlines) did not speak or understand English at all. She could not give us any helpful information of our flight"
Pros: "Smooth and easy, pleasant staff and service flight."
Cons: "The woman at the Rome airport turkish airlines counter scolded us for being a little late to arrive to the airport. She was very rude to say the least."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter!"
Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"
Cons: "Rude attendants, running out of food frequently, not getting options, intermittently working entertainment with poor choices."
Pros: "Same as from London to Istanbul"
Cons: "Same as from London to Istanbul."
Cons: "Had to remind the hostess to bring our meal as she missed us in giving out the meals initially."
Pros: "Food on board"
Cons: "Every thing they did to me Not wanting to speak english Not willng to help at all and shaking shouders when I asked a question thier only english no english And showimg no regard to of my problem I tell you what if This airline wants to earn my bunness then they must know not all of us speak turkish And I they are noy wlling to speak english then let Them only do busniss whith Turkish people only I am beyond dessapointed"
Pros: "Quick flight with breakfast"
Cons: "Boarding process was a little bit chaotic"
Cons: "Same as above!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great. The crew were very courteous."
Cons: "It was so hot, nearly unbearable. Not sure why, maybe a one time thing, but definitely very irritating. The food was mediocre at best. As well, the tray of food kept sliding off the retractable table. Seats were pretty cramped."
Pros: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"
Pros: "All service, atention, food"
Pros: "At least there was a good selection of movies"
Cons: "The crew just couldn't get it right, half our section didn't get the hot towels before takeoff, the attendant had run out half way down the aisle then forgot to come back. Distribution of food was handled like it was the first time the crew was attempting it in a moving plane. They couldn't get orders right, handing out vegetarian dishes when non-veg dishes were requested. Running out of ice for the drinks."
Pros: "Overall an excellent airline. Young fleet of planes. Curious service and crew. Excellent selection of enertainment"
Cons: "Seat pitch is 31", too small for 6'4" male. Food during this trip and the inbound flights was nom-edible"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and BIG aircraft."
Pros: "It was an amazing overall experience."
Cons: "Would have like to more about boarding gate earlier. But the process flowed very smoothly"
Pros: "Small plane..no comfort"
Pros: "Great customer service, nice plane. Very happy overall"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the food was aiight, the stewards and stewardesses were pretty chill. There wasnt a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "The food was interesting. I thought it could be a smidgen better. I had a layover that was ungodly long, but I guess that's scheduling not flying."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "I honestly think the flight it self was a good experience for me y really don't have any negative thing to say about the airline"
Pros: "Entertainment options are good. Flight timings and boarding was generally very good."
Cons: "The foot rest in economy class is really uncomfortable for people over 5'10'' in height as it means we have less legroom, even if it is folded up, and can be uncomfortable to press against. Food is too much the same across all Turkish Airlines flights. I took 6 flights with Turkish Airlines in 1 week and got cheese sandwiches in every flight!"
Pros: "I have flown with all big airlines including Lufthansa, BA, Delta, American and others. This flight was by far the best experience I had. They have lovely serving crew so no one actually hesitates to ask or want something. They have helped me and my two toddlers along with 3 other similar families of an incredible amount to make sure they are all comfortable. No wonder that received the best airline of europe award for several years in a row...There was only a 20 minutes delay during take-off and we still arrived home a bit early... Very smooth flight, one that I still cant believe I had with my 2 toddlers. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"
Pros: "Good movies to watch and food was also pretty good"
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board and relatively pleasant crew."
Cons: "Ok overall"
Cons: "Crew not very friendly"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Food. Entertainment. Leg room."
