Cons: "The service was beyond awful! The Flight Attendants had a “could care less” attitude. I had special ordered a meal, and they gave me the wrong one. I did not want to make a big deal, so I just ate it. Then they did not offer any beverages when the meal came! I literally had to beg them to make me their famous “Singapore sling”. Shocking really!!. When I had my coffee, my request for cream and sugar went ignored THREE times. Finally they grudgingly gave me only cream, rendering my coffee undrinkable. .....And the list goes on. Never ever will I travel on this horrid airline again!"

Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."
Pros: "great service. new plane. excellent video system."

Cons: "The get out and get back in halt at Hong Kong. Practically the entire flight had to do this, quite wasteful. Bad customer experience. Find a better way please! If Hong Kong makes you do that switch over to another airport, better yet make no halt. I have flown direct from SF to Singapore before so not sure why this halt."

Cons: "I have no complaint"
Cons: "Cabin too hot"
Pros: "I loved the movie selection and the food options."
Cons: "The woman behind me kept insisting that I keep my chair in the upright position. With two crying babies on the plane, I was trying to relax and sleep as much as possible on the 12.5 hr flight. What bothered me even more is that when the woman asked the flight attendant to tell me to put my seat up, the flight attendant complied instead of telling the woman it was my seat to do as I wished. Why make the seats recline if they are going to bother the people behind? Why tell me to put my seat up if it was not a requirement for all (ie during take off or landing)? I did not appreciate this and it made my flight extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just as previous reviews mentioned, this is a top notch airline even when flying coach. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was good and the flight overall was comfortable. I'd fly with Singapore again in a heartbeat."

Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent. Highly recommend the chicken massals"
Cons: "The seats in economy class were a little too close for comfort"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
Pros: "Flight schedule in time."
Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"

The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"

Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Food is not fresh, very uncomfortable seats and very little leg room."
Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."

Pros: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."

Pros: "Everything is fine and have a wonderful time"
Cons: "I had to ask for wine to 3 different hostess's"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."

Pros: "Best airline in the sky"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"
Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"
Pros: "Short flight to LCA from DOH. Efficient staff"

Pros: "The saving grace for the trip was my segment of flight from Istanbul to Antalya. Excellent seating, service and overall experience. Thank you."
Cons: "The flight departed late from LAX thus making me miss my connecting flight to Antalya. It was a long and tiring experiencing for a 74 year old women. Seats on the airplane were so small I could barely get in an out of them. No one to direct me at the gate in Istanbul and explain where I needed to go. Food very ordinary compared to other flights I've taken with Turkish airlines. Thought I was on a different airline flying from Istanbul to Antalya. That segment was excellent."

Pros: "The flight and crew is always great"

My earphone broke in pieces..... Kids behind me was banging my chair the entire flight. Food was just bad ! I heard so much about Turkish Airline as being one of the best airline that I tried it . Big disappointment !!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Lack of leg room; lack of air flow during entire flight and seats could adjust their own."
Pros: "I had heard that Turkish Airlines was very reputable and I'm glad it proved to be true! The Turkish food was nice, the in flight entertainment was great, the plane/ bathrooms were kept clean, the plane was full but not overpacked, even the kids got a "kids pack" :) Overall they showed that they were a good quality airline! My 14 hr flight was very comfortable"
Pros: "So I never actually flew with Turkish this trip, but I can write about my rerouting experiences. Inbound my first connection to Istanbul was cancelled due to technical problems. Fortunately I was second in the ticket office line and was promptly rebooked with Lufthansa. My return flight was cancelled because of the coup, and again I was rebooked with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Overall Turkish Airlines did well in a difficult situation. But a few concerns. On my inbound flight, the agent servicing us was amazing and I was fortunate to be second in line, but the airline was ill prepared for the situation and the agent was being hung out to dry by his colleagues who kept calling him and wouldn't let him do his job. On the return flight, I was frustrated the agents at first pushed me to take a refund rather than letting me rebook with a partner. I ended up having to leave a day later than expected, and didn't get an itinerary till the morning after my original flight. This was all very stressful. Lastly, you have to think twice about flying through Turkey. Although this coup is over, the next crisis will be over whether President Erdogan creeping authoritarianism."
Pros: "Flight had only 10 minute delay and only an hour layover. Boarding was pleasent"
Cons: "As expected food wasn't that good, the crew was a little slow, and seemed like didn't care that much about passengers individual needs."
Pros: "Must and entertainment, and legroom."
Cons: "Turkish airline randomly changed my seat assignments without any explanation to me. I also found out my connect flight was changed to much later and one causing me an eight hour delay and assemble airport. Again this was done without my knowledge I happen to randomly find out at the check-in station in Los Angeles. The manager was kind enough to switch me back to my old flight and seat assignments but it took an hour waiting. After boarding the plane it was an hour and a half delay intake off I also realized this my original seats were given to three ladies who are friends of the first class flight attendants there were no children or elderly this was a random acts of favoritism towards the flight attendants after boarding the plane it was an hour and a half delay intake off I also realized this my original seats were given to three ladies who are friends of the first class flight attendants there were no children or elderly this was a random acts of favoritism towards the flight attendants trance friends. As a result of the irresponsible delay at the airport and the pilot not bothering to make up the time when we arrive to sample I realized we had missed her flight despite the promises that they will wait it was the most horrible experience. Rest of the passengers and I were waiting at the connecting gate with the gate number the flight number and the sign saying now boarding but there was no plane no one could give us an explanation of what happened. I will never fly Turkish again"
Pros: "We left los angeles an hour late but was able to make the connection. Enjoyed the food and service. Fortunately the seat next to me was empty so I was able to spread out a bit and get some much needed sleep."
Cons: "My first flight was late which made me miss my connecting flight. The ground was horribly rude and it took over 4 hours to get me to a hotel along with at lie ask 50 other people."
Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable and had more recline than most airlines."
Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff. This delay caused me and many others to miss connections in Istanbul. Also, the transfer process in Istanbul was very confusing; I was given wrong directions and waited twice in the wrong place before I found the right line to wait in."
Pros: "The food was great, entertainment was excellent, flight crew was pleasant, seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late and I nearly missed my connection as a result."

Pros: "Minus the delay the flight itself was great! Would definitely fly with them again"
Pros: "Went above and beyond"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were good."
Cons: "I had checked in and had boarding passes with assigned seats. I need an aisle seat and JUST ASSUMED when the check in person at LAX; tore up our pre-boarding checkin with seat assignments that I was given an AISLE SEAT. I WAS NOT AND DID NOT KNOW UNTIL WE BOARDED. THE GENTLEMAN ON THE AISLE DID NOT WANT TO CHANGE. WE WARNED HIM THAT WE GET UP AT LEAST 3 - 4 TIMES ON A 12 HR FLIGHT. We did and woke him up at least 2-3 times. BAD FLIGHT FOR ME...I WILL DOUBLE CHECK NEXT TIME FOR AN AISLE SEAT FOR ME OR MY WIFE. jAMESDEAN BUCKLEY email@example.com"
Pros: "Over all is ok"
Cons: "Stay over in Istanbul, they gave only one meal for 24hr"
Cons: "The attendents, kinda rude"
Pros: "Great screen and movie selection."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Worst I've ever been on for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Would not r commend in any capacity"
Pros: "Crew service, choice of in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Food was below par."
Pros: "Plane itself was nice with very comfortable seats. Good selection of movies and shows to watch in flight."
Cons: "For a flight from IST-NPL they only had beef options for food. Nepal is a Hindu country and majority of people on the flight were Hindu. It's very inconsiderate for them to bit have planned for more non beef food options. I turned on the service button 3 times within an hour. No one came. Separately I also asked 3 flight attendants for some water. None of them got me water! There were at least four parties with kids younger than 3 and a few older people. It would have been nice if boarding call was made to allow these people to board first so they could settle down camly, without stressing the kids and everyone else behind them!!"
Pros: "Food tastes great. Kept me full the entire time."
Cons: "Display panel for one of our seats was broken and after asking to have it reset, staff was not attentive to make sure issue was resolved before moving on. If you're going to be on a flight that long...you want to have your entertainment, and don't want to keep bothering someone to have it work. Also seats were cramped compared to other airline planes and staff seemed to not have an issue that there were some other people on the plane drinking bottles, getting drunk and loud."
Pros: "I liked almost everything. The plane was clean and the seats looked new. Of course, space in the economy section can be tight but it is not worse than any other airline I have experienced. The entertainment was awesome with a wide selection of movies, tv and music options. I was even able to watch the primary debates LIVE from my seat which was amazing. The crew was amazing and very attentive. They made sure to provide us with whatever we needed and were always polite. This was the second time I have flown with Turkish Airlines and my experience was the same if not better this time around."
Cons: "Leg room in economy line."
Pros: "I've heard suspect things about Turkish Airlines. I can say I had a good flight. Entertainment library was large, food was decent, and wine was generous."
Cons: "Boarding was a bi of a mess and we didn't take off for an hour but I had already factored that into my transit time."
Cons: "The flight attendants found it difficult to say "welcome" when boarding and they careless about flight connections upon arrival at Istanbul. Also, flying business class or first class with this airline does not command any special treatment with the exception of priority boarding."
Cons: "We found out when we arrived at the airport that our itinerary was moved to British Airways. At first, they weren't going to accept our three checked bags since BA only allows 1 pp while TA allows 2. The worst part was that we had picked out window seats for the long cross-atlantic journey, but due to the shuffle just a few hours before takeoff, we were left with some of the worst seats on the new flight. Not much sleep and very uncomfortable. I can't believe that TA would just change our itinerary like this without any warning, then be so inhospitable."
Pros: "Crew OK. Non functional remotes, usb ports...Outdated entertainmennt content...below average catering needs.....even hot towelrolls were not provided. I flew Singapore Airlines and Emirates....excellent passenger care. Air India operating an international route should choose better craft and services ....imperative"
Cons: "How about rendering the airline private, perhaps then, to survive, they would improve services. Now they are over-indulged public sector"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, wasn't a rush. Lots of empty seats."
Cons: "Plane felt old and dirty. Everything was gross and/or broken. Screens didn't work for many people, headphone ports were damaged. Even things like the handle on the doorknob, during the course of the flight, became bent and broken, as if somebody didn't know how to use it and manhandled it instead."
Pros: "Food and service was good"
Cons: "Entertainment must be improved besides seat and washroom upkeep"
Pros: "Passengers were so cool. I mean indian passengers were so warm and cool"
Cons: "Entertainment was old and broken. Could have been updated to latest."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Better food. Serve fresh fruits as snack. Have more snacks. Dinner and lunch was too little and limited. Bath room was not cleaned. No toilet tissues. Crew gather in the back and talking to each other. No good service from them."
Cons: "Consol provided with my seat 18C on 30th November 18 and 18 d on 6th Feb 19 I.e more than 2 months was no operational . Due to this no entertainment facilities was available during my to and fro journey. Such inefficiency is not tolerable. Pl take note of this."
Cons: "chairs too bad...entertainment and displays too bad"
Cons: "The flight had technical issues and we were in the plane for 2.5hrs and suffocating. The pilot didn’t have the courtesy to give updates. The in flight entertainment systems didn’t work and the overall experience was bad"
Cons: "I paid fee for preferred seating but airline did not allott the seating that I selected."
Pros: "What's not to like about a $826 round trip flight from SFO to BLR, bought at a week's notice? The flight was on time, the crew was courteous, the legroom was more generous than most airlines."
Cons: "Most of the USB ports on the entertainment units don't work."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No customer service. Air hosts were doing their job as a chore, no pride in their job, did not come to support even after ringin the call light multiple times. Entertainment system was old and not working for some of us on this long 15 hour flight!"
Cons: "1. Had to check out baggage in Delhi, instead of through checkin to final destination 2. one of the baggage was lost 3. took 45 mins to check in at the air india counter for seating and my seat was separate from my child 4. audio was not working for the entertainment"
Cons: "Both flights started and reached late. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "No turbulence. Great flying experience."
Cons: "I disliked nothing."
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking was fairly quick. Movie selection. Points were lost on food and comfort because it is airplane food and you are on an airplane for 15 hours. Nothing against Air India."

Pros: "Empty seats next to me"
Cons: "Crew was rough"
Pros: "Spacious seats, short duration."
Cons: "Food can be better."

Pros: "Fastest service between SFO and Delhi. Couldn't expect anything more! Awesome job Air India"
Cons: "Maybe food?"
Pros: "Food and service was good."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not good."
Pros: "On time. Great service, luggage came early."
Cons: "Very old flights. Half the seats in business class are broken and don’t function. The cushion is to firm and caused body aches"
Cons: "No information on transfers. And when I missed the connecting Bangalore flight , I had to go through one person to the other to get a ticket to the next flight. Like a ping pong ball. When someone has missed a connecting flight it should not have to be this hard to help find the next flight. I was also barraged to pay for my next flight. But finally one person helped and I got into the m de flight. But I had to go through 5 people and about 2 hours to get this."
Pros: "Very rude and no interest in their job."
Pros: "Nothing to like .save your money fly with any other airline but not air India. They did not even serve water without asking .plane is old no entertainment options like movies music. Crew was rude and unprofessional. For some reason they change there uniform for street clothes then they switched back to uniform ."
Cons: "Nothing to like .I will never never fly again with air India and I will make sure that everyone I know they do not book with air India."
Pros: "I found the movie selections to be average in all genres. Although i am a person of Indian origin but i saw okay collection in all genres. I would rate it 3 out of 5. They could do better in some regional movies like Bengali and Punjabi and add some latest hollywood movies around 6 months to 1 yr old. Latest hindi movie selection was Good."
Cons: "The screen quality was very very bad. Neither the touchscreen nor the remote worked. I literally had to pound on the screen to make a selection rather than a gentle touch. The crew tried fixing by resetting it from some control they had but didn’t work. I somehow managed to play a movie by pounding on screen since I had nothing to do on a 16 hr flight from SFO to Delhi. I am a very frequent international traveler and have never seen a similar problem or issue with any other airline."
Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Pathetic seats, cleanliness and staff behavior"
Pros: "Food was ok. Crew was ok."
Cons: "A second time experience with AI and this is bad too. - Bad Entertainment facility. Not able to interface with any of the thing as none is working fine. - Even the charging point is not working to keep myself entertained in one way or other for such a long journey. - The screen monitor power buttons not working, continuously flashing the light on my eye which is not allowing me to sleep peacefully. - Toilets are not clean and not up to the basic standards which at least found in domestic flights"
Cons: "Pathetic service, unprofessional crew , delayed in flights, not organised, very bad restrooms and very ordinary food. I am very disappointed with airindia international flight"
Cons: "Entertainment section doesn't seem to get update frequently. There were not any new movies. Food was not upto the mark. Given the fact that it s international flight for 12 hrs there was no toiletry or blanket provided. Seats could have seen better life then what they were in. There was no leg room if I keep water bottle in the front seat pocket."
Pros: "Travel schedule & landing before time."
Cons: "Display screens didn’t work properly and one had to Press on random points on the screen to get the movie screen going"
Pros: "Food and service nice. Boarding was quick but then the flight flight was delayed"
Cons: "The seat cloth looks old. Seats need to be more cushioned and improved."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down for 90% of the passengers. The aircraft was very old and some of the seats were held together by duct tape !! The staff was polite but quite inept at hospitality. Will not be flying air India"
Cons: "Everything. The cabin crew were rude to the max and never came to serve whenever required. It was the shittiest 17 hours ever"
Cons: "Lots of seats were empty but crew were not allowing passengers to lie down. One of the air hostess bumped the food trolley on my foot and she was not sorry for that/ Whole crew had a hostile attitude towards passengers."
Pros: "Boarding process was excellent."
Cons: "Broken seats everywhere"
Pros: "The flight is direct is the only good thing. The legroom is good, but that's due to the plane being extremely old."
Cons: "There are so many things that I have jotted down a list. 1. Plane is really old 2. Entertainment on most of the seats are broken. 3. Remotes don't work either. 4. Crew is extremely unprofessional. (Domestic Air India crew is more professional than international) 5. Crew is incompetent as well. They couldn't figure out how to organize over head space. I had to help them out. Eventually someone from the airport had to come and help as they wanted our flight to depart on time. 6. All the plane announcements from the hostess and the pilot was crass. 7. There was just enough food, but no extras or snacks. 8. One of the meals out of three was inedible because it was super spicy."
Cons: "Tv not at all working changed seats twice but tv is not working anywhere Without entertainment traveling for 16 hrs is hell. Many passéngers travelled with me are very disappointed Crew suggested to drink a glass of wine and sleep which is very mean Didn’t even apologize for inconvenience Getting scared of taking the return flight Boeing 777 Please fix the screens and provide good service I never write reviews for the first time feeling very unpleasant"
Pros: "Priority boarding for families"
Cons: "Meals. No children meals for kids for entire 15 h flight"
Pros: "The schedule of the flight. Good legroom compared to other international airlines. Better elbow space."
Cons: "1. Very bad entertainment system. Unable to use entertainment system with remote or by direct finger clicks. The delay between clicks and the action response on screen is too huge...these look like systems from last century...please upgrade !!!! 2. Crew members are not courteous. They ignore requests made by passengers. Looks like they just hate all passengers in their hearts."
Pros: "Air India did an excellent job and made the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats were broken with large cracks visible. The arm rest was also broken with a metal protruding out. There were many seats in the same broken state. The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The quality for the aircraft was not great and seemed very old."
Cons: "Was said connecting flight left even before the time. They dint care to transfer the baggage or give food coupons to passengers . There were no one to assist or to let us know wats gng on"
Cons: "I placed a meal request on their website but they were clueless and did not serve it on both sectors, Hyd - Sfo & Sfo - Hyd!"
Cons: "always late, never on time!!not sufficient snacks. no food when we had a delay, not even water! very very limited space between seats. tv not working half the time. Overall experience not good!!!"
