Cons: "I didn’t like the seat it was all the way in the back 48c And the I asked at check if I could have a seat in the front but the check in personal rudely said no flight is booked, there were people that got ticket way later than me had the seat up front."
Pros: "Film selection, boarding process, amenities bag"
Cons: "Dessert very boring. Legspace seemed smaller than last experience on TK"
Pros: "мне нравится все кроме того что заранее до выхода в Стамбул неизвестен номер gate для полёта в в Одессу. В результате большая нервозность и много времени тратится на поиск этого номера, а потом -- бег чтобы успеть достигнуть место посадки вовремя."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and the airline crew excelente"
Cons: "The seat a little inconfortable for me"
Pros: "Food and entertainment. Comfort of seats"
Cons: "Crew not helpful, flight delayed, no help when I missed my connecting flight due to the delay"
Pros: "Like most American Airlines, Turkish Airlines provides no-frills service. On the other hand, having a pleasant and respectful flight crew can make a tremendous difference in the passengers experience. We were lucky enough to have a flight attendant named Gulhan Who smiled the entire flight. She was professional, courteous, and service oriented. Most of the flight crew showed similar professionalism. Turkish Airlines had for better service then any of the American or European airlines I have encountered during the last 10 years."
Cons: "The plane was old and not very comfortable. The food was horrible, and the in-flight entertainment was not very good."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment had a wide selection. The burger dinner was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The egg breakfast wasn't good at all. The eggs were tough and didn't taste like real eggs."
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Pros: "Not only was the aircraft antique and sporting old seats, but the crew also upgraded two families with infants to the business class where the screamed their hearts out to the obvious displeasure of the paying customers. A true Turkish delight... Unlikely to fly them again."
Cons: "Good food and alcohol selection"
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 service and food was excellent. The entertainment choices was amazing. They gave me two decent-sized bottles of wine without charging me."
Cons: "They give you very little leg room. The seat in front of you touches your knees. After 8 hours in the same position it feels like you are stuck in a coffin or a primatial medieval torture device. The seat begins to hurt your back. You can't get in a comfortable position. You can't turn left or right. There's a little foot rest that gives you 10 minutes of relief but then that gets uncomfortable. If one of the people seated in with the inner row needs to use the restroom then the whole row needs to get up. It's cruel and unusual punishment. The airline just needs to expand the rows by 6 inches. Before you go bring a neck pillow and a butt cushion. Or better yet, pick a seat located in a front section that gives you more leg room. If you have the option then this should be a higher priority over a window seat. You will thank me for this advice."
Pros: "Every thing about it the food and what you supply for each customers ✅"
Pros: "Was surprised to get a full meal on such a short flight. Very good food."

Pros: "Comfy plane overall, good and entertainment was good!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane, getting on the plane"
Cons: "The inhumane incarceration that was the overnight layover. I had no idea it would be so awful and regret having booked with Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Service was poor - my chair was broken had to switch seat - after switching the person in front of me his chair was broken as well and he was praticly laying down on me. 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: "The wheelchair crew took my old mother of 70yr old njoh rose enjoh all the way to connect Zurich flight when she highlighted from Chicago O'hare flight to Istanbul. I give kudos to the wheelchair team at A300 Istanbul international airport atuku"
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."
Cons: "Not on time. Missed my connecting flight. and my luggage did not arrive at my final destination."
Pros: "The staff was really friendly, food was great and there was plenty of entertainment during the flight."
Cons: "I couldn't accumulate my miles."

Pros: "the crew was waiting for us, coming from Delhi, our connection was a little tight. the luggage did not make it to ZRH but was delivered the next day"
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 firstname.lastname@example.org"
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: "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: "I was thrown into despair by the refusal of TA officials to help me in any way. I paid the full price of the flight but the officials of the airline were very unresponsive and unhelpful. I was delayed to the airport due to traffic and they refused to help me in any way. I have flown with this airline in the past and the airline was always kind and accommodating, but not so this time! I lost $1.1K for the initial fare and then had to purchase a separate $2.3K ticket to reach my destination. Absolutely NO other airline has been so dismissive to me. I fly United all the time, and they are worst by US standards, and yet (I never thought I would say this) United has always helped MUCH better than this airline! I called customer service and could barely understand their English, not to mention that they didn't care at all to help me. I lost $3.3K because of this airline. It was the worst travel nightmare of my life, and I have been to 50+ countries!"
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: "Very professional and helpful cabin crew. Very good food. Excellent entertainment and USB recharge availability."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped and uncomfortable. And if the person in front leans their seat back, it gets worse."
Cons: "Seats itself not really ok, neighbor any size gonna touch you every time. Crew not ready to do anything with passengers with little kids, only my headset helped me survive. So I could sleep because of this issue only 1 hour for 12 hours flight. Good luck. As second issue doesn’t happen too often"
Pros: "Quick boarding and departure. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Customer service. Leg room."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Timeliness of meals and service was nice. Boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "First time I’ve traveled that I may have preferred an economy ticket instead of my premium economy seat. It was like sitting in a rock hard shell. Seat does not recline but rather slides forward slouching you down and hurting your back the second you move the seat, let alone 11 hours of sitting."
Cons: "My flight was 5 hours late. They lost my bag with expensive stuff."
Cons: "Seats were very close to each other"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time. Food was tasty and plentiful. Amenities were clean."
Pros: "uneventful flight, good movie selection. Crew was polite and thorough."
Cons: "Very crowded. Sears are so close together. . doctors recommend getting up periodically and walking around to improve circulation. Nearly impossible with such narrow aisles and people with legs and belongings sprawled in the bulkheads. The flight attendant seemed surprised and confused when u told I"
Pros: "Crew, and food was great"
Cons: "Delayed toooooo long"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The seats was not comfortable"
Cons: "Slight delay in departure"
Cons: "This time food wasn’t organized well, because in the menu was two dishes, beef stroganoff or some fish, when came our turn to choose, we didn’t have choice, because only the fish was left. Second time was fish(again) and chicken, and also the salad was made from fish too... this time we got lucky, there was a choice because the serving started from our side. The chicken wasn’t good though, And still it is too much fish, and it didn’t taste good. I can compare , because I had other Aeroflot flights, and the food was really good, compare to this one."
Cons: "booking this flight was a nightmare. after several calls i was told i can upgrade to a seat with more legroom in economy plus at the airport counter for 12 Euros. it then turned out it cost me $80 for just one leg of the trip, and it wasn't economy plus, but a very narrow seat in an exit row right next to a toilet. The phone customer service was rude, unprofessional, and uninformed."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and food was pretty good, even got an ice cream!!!"
Cons: "I can never sleep on a plane and TV wasnt working :( It worked for the safety video, but stopped right after... for the whole duration of the flight... its hard to stay entertained on 12.5 hours flight... i only had one game on my phone... it felt like 48 hours... hopefully it doesn't happen on the way back"
Pros: "Plenty of food, meals and snacks. Plenty of new movies to watch."
Pros: "Flight went very fast, flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "They should fix a remote control on I.Bunin, for a passengers at 19C."
Cons: "I haven't flown Aeroflot since early 1990s. Will not fly it again. Boarding was a mess. Then sat on the plane for almost 2 hours. Don't even try their food. Legroom in economy worse than on US flights. Touchscreen didn't work. And, they left ALL the luggage in LAX. Spent 4 hours in SVO filling out papers for the lost/delayed luggage."
Pros: "I met an English speaking Russian that is trying to help me out."
Cons: "My gear bag is missing. It never arrived on my flight."
Pros: "Food was nice plus vine"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and super helpful! Which was awesome since I don't travel internationally too much! But when I was running late for my connection due to a delay they made sure I made my flight on time. If only my Carry on bag would have made it too (it cannot run as fast as me through the airport). But overall, incredible experience!"
Cons: "The was okay (for airplane food it was pretty good), then my tv broke halfway through the flight so the last 6 hours were a little longer. But still an incredible time!"
Pros: "Aeroflot is an amazing airline - the people, food, seats...I highly recommend it. We flew Business Class and Economy and both exceeded our expectations and the quality of other airlines."
Pros: "The employees were great to work with!"
Cons: "The food...even in Bus class was a little ehhh. Also on the transfer from Moscow to Milan....Our bags weren't transferred with us. The agency that works the lost luggage cases was except, however 2 days without fresh clothes is terrible on any account."
Pros: "Flight attendants was great! I would give them A+ customer service and big props for their patience."
Cons: "Everything was great! I wish there was more A/C and more space in the sitting row"
Pros: "Very quick boarding, painless check in."
Cons: "Sat in plane an hour before take off, as well as an hour late."

Pros: "Very good service. On time arrival."
Pros: "We were served a hot meal even though it was only a three hour flight. The plane was quite empty at the back so we were able to move to uncrowded seating, which was helpful. Altogether a good flight."
Cons: "food was not good"
Pros: "LAX & Moscow boarding was like a confused cattle call with ratty hand held signs and zero order that I could detect. 2nd flight had Zero entertainment which was problematic as passengers behaved horribly, including singing the entire floght as if it was americas got talent. it was hell."
Cons: "Boarded 1.5 hrs late for no apparent reason... nothing was stated for why we kept waiting"
Cons: "It was delayed and very tiring"
Pros: "every movie you can think of is available, meals and drinks provided"
Cons: "small seats, not a lot of room"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and plenty of movie options"
Cons: "It was too hot on board"
Pros: "the entertainment."
Cons: "four of my flights with this airline were delayed causing me problems and wasting my time. Will not fly this airline again"
Pros: "It was a nice surprise that the most inexpensive flight to Warsaw happened to be pretty awesome!"
Cons: "The organization of the boarding process was a bit confusing and disorganized. They also ran out of beef and chicken options for our section of the plane, but made an exception for one lady who complained A LOT."
Cons: "I was not able to cancel or freeze the flight, so I missed it."
Pros: "Great job"
Cons: "The food was terrible and they lost our luggage. One suitcase that was not lost came completely broken."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of slow boarding process. Missed my connection as a result."
Pros: "I flew in the business class cabin direct non-stop Los Angeles -> Moscow Russia. It was a pretty normal business class experience, nothing too special, but nothing lacking. Mostly I slept for 9 hours in the fully lay flat business class seats and they left me alone."
Cons: "While serving dinner, the flight attendants acted REALLY stressed out, as if what they were doing was super ultra important that they get it right or they would be fired (or taken out back and shot). It was a strange vibe. I mean, we're all trapped in the air for an 11 hour flight, it isn't like I have an important meeting to attend in 5 minutes. :-) The flight attendants should smile, say hello, be professional but relaxed!!"
Pros: "The seats were nice and the service was ample."
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't allow for regular headphones and the provided ones were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The dessert with dinner was the best part."
Cons: "The food was hard to swallow and I was not offered enough drinks or beer/wine."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight, nothing special."
Cons: "My shoulders were literally wider than the seat so they stuck out, making me constantly change positions to try not to bump the person next to me."
Pros: "I absolutely enjoyed everything about my flight from LA to Moscow. The plane was very nice, the food was good, and there were multiple drink services. I appreciated the slippers and eye mask at every seat. The in-flight video system worked well and had lots to choose from. I especially enjoyed watching subtitled Russian movies to get a taste of the culture."
Pros: "Good, efficient flight and route from LAX to RIX. Crew was very hospitable."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were a little slow and the food is smaller portions, so if you're an eater it is recommended to take lots of extra snacks."
Pros: "Movies choice was good, some were rather new. However, control panel didn't work properly, so I had to spend significant time to make my selection work."
Cons: "Landed 30 min later than scheduled"
Pros: "I enjoyed the services of Aeroflot!"
Cons: "entertainment ..."
Pros: "there was enoughn room for the legs stewardess were kind"

Pros: "Quick simple and quality service!"
Pros: "Row of seats to myself. Free coffee."
Cons: "Coffee refill."
Cons: "connection information very poor"
Pros: "Great service. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Could not have been better"
Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent service"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Dinner and breakfast were terrible, especially for a long transatlantic flight. Attendants were curt. Movie selection was subpar compared to other airlines on similar flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "Transfer time is not sufficient due to customs in Sweden customs inspection takes too long for only one staff."
Cons: "Service was great"
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."
Pros: "plane is clean & seats are comfy"
Cons: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Pros: "Very helpful staff."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Counter selling me an upgrade that was more expensive than I prefer. I.e., buyers remorse"
Cons: "Didn’t have veggies good on board"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Cons: "Nothing :)"
Pros: "My Plus ticket brought me an excellent cold lunch despite the shortness of the flying time (only 1:10). The seats need more recline!"
Pros: "Nice flight, comfortable seating, blankets/pillows/headphones were provided, and food was good."
Pros: "Pros: -Good food -Good entertainment -Attentive staff"
Cons: "Cons: -Uncomfortable seats ( I took the free seat and didn't upgrade) -Poor air circulation ( I hardly felt any AC) -Lack of overall plane space"
Pros: "Great takeoff and landing.Care ethics of the stuff was excellent. The quality of the food was very good and it was served with care."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment had a good variety of options to choose from. Passport control was timely. Food service was also timely and efficient."
Cons: "As with most airplanes, the air was quite cold, but the SAS blanket adequately made things a bit warmer. I'm always puzzled by the fact that once business class and SAS plus passengers board that SAS Go passengers can all then board. It would make more sense to have people board from the back during this time so that people don't block aisles and it makes arranging overhead baggage a bit easier."
Pros: "Pleased with everything."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Cons: "Flight was late and they left us completely hanging at the Stockholm airport with no agents anywhere to be found and no instructions on what to do about the missed connection."
Pros: "What didn't I like? The crew was so friendly and helpful. The food was the best airplane food that I have ever eaten (the broccoli still had a crunch!). The seats were very comfortable and I loved the modern look of the plane!"
Pros: "nothing too exciting, everything as expected.Seats were a bit tight tho"
Cons: "Food tasted Horrible"
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Cons: "For an international flight, only the first non-alcoholic drink is included for free. Let's say, if you want 2 orange juices, you have to pay for the second. Alcohol, of course, is not free under their system. Snacks? Forget about it."
Pros: "Temperatures was good not very hot. Has a handicapped bathroom."
Cons: "Cabin light was only slightly dimmed during the 8 hrs flight. Then instead of gradually brighten the light. They just flip the switch to full blast. I think they are trying to sell you more duty free than letting their customers rest. Not ok!"
Cons: "Baggager fees were high"
Pros: "Everything was great! At check-in I upgraded to SAS plus. Will choose that again.comfortable, crew was so nice and friendly. Food was amazing. Made my 10 hour flight great. ."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly"
Pros: "connection was easy and quick"
Pros: "Not enough space to store items."
Pros: "The automated kiosks made it ridiculously easy. Flying out of LAX can be a pain, but that went by so smoothly. I'm cheap and have become accustomed to Spirit airlines. So when I received free (decent) meals a complimentary bottle of water and a plethora of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything. The service was great, plane was comfortable and the ride was easy. I will try to only fly SAS from now on"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the flight left and landed on time. The crew members were very pleasant. The comfort of the aircraft is mediocre, but that is all across the industry."
Cons: "This flight was ~3.5 hours and there was no 'free' food; it was all for purchase. SAS can learn from their competitors and realize that flights over 2 hours are different than short haul ones."
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating staff. Acceptable food. Efficient and on time boarding."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but legroom was too little to get comfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "8 years ago on similar flight from Lax to got, we had to retrieve checked bags in Sto, and then go through security. It was not clear at all on this trip if it was the same. SK agent at lax seemed unsure, Arlanda customer service agents at baggage in Arlanda also seemed unsure. We then learned from another airport worker at baggage they would go all the way through. It is very important to know since turn around time is very short, and I almost missed flight 8 years ago, and bags did miss it last time. Tks"
Cons: "We bought tickets on priceline, Zurich to Oslo, paid $150 more for the shorter flight (by 1 1/2 hours), didn't realise the cost did not include luggage ($140 for 2 bags!), boarded late, only served water, coffee and tea, all other beverages were for a fee, landed late, bags were delayed by 30 minutes and soaked with water from the rain, some clothes inside were wet, overall poor experience, airline needs to polish their services and stop the 'nickel and dime" approach."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Packed flight. No food available ( even for purchase) in economy"
Pros: "It was weird boarding last. We understand different airlines have different policies but we believe letting the elderly and families with little children should always have first priority... We as a family and with an elderly who is not 100% well have big challenges... It is always nice for other airlines to get us in earlier so the elderly and the little children can settle. This airline's policy is a shift for us. If not for the good price, we'd choose another... But it was just ok just a longer wait... Children and the elderly should always have the best benefit... Not the busiiness people.. Crazy policy!"
Cons: "Service was mediocre. Staff was nice but not very caring like other airlines and most were older women who are burnt out... Its almost like they don't want to be there. Food was excellent but there was a charge for red wine. This is Europe. Thought the US was bad... Economy class comfort is not that comfortable as always... o well! Your staff English especially the women announcers were terrible. We could not understand hardly anything. The pilots were a lot better! Need to take English classes.. Sorry but have to be honest..."
Cons: "My suitcase was never put on my flight from LAX - ARN, despite checking in 24 hours early and arriving at baggage drop 2.5 hours before my flight. I still have not received my suitcase in Helsinki, and they can't seem to locate it. I am on vacation in Finland and have no clothes, medicine, or toiletries and everyone at SAS and baggage claim have been very unhelpful."
Pros: "New and nice plane. Good amenities for coach. Good service for the most part. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Breakfast was kind of rushed. Would have liked to have been offered water, tea, and coffee more."
Cons: "Instead of a direct flight from Los Angeles to stockholm I got three flights and two layovers just because they said They were understaffed and I ended up having a very long and terrible flight shifting from one airport to another and I did not get offered any upgrades or compensation for this inconvenience,"
Pros: "Love the fact that the plane was clean and new!"
Cons: "Wish we had more movies and more tv-shows,"
Pros: "Everything was a dream. The flight crew was very nice. The aircraft was modern and clean. Flight came with entertainment(movies and such at no hidden or extra charge) they even hand out complimentary headphones which u keep. Blankets and pillows were provided. And the food was light and healthy and wasn't bad at all. Obviously it's not fun being trapped in a small place for 10+ hours but everything else was good."
Cons: "Length of trip, however this will take some technological advances. Not much can be done to improve this yet."
Pros: "The cost of the flight was low and affordable - that's about it."
Cons: "Not much legroom for an 11-hour flight. SAS provides 2 meals during the flight, which is similar to other airlines, however, drinks are only provided with the meals. If you want a drink at a different time, you have to pay for it. I find that quite unacceptable for a flight of this duration. The checkin agents (not employees of SAS) took quite a while to help me - almost half an hour, which prevented me from spending some time outside the airport."
Pros: "Flight was pretty good, awesome food, kind crew. Only disappointment was that we at SAS go didnt got a hot towel like the other classes. At Singapour Airlines thats something offered free of charge to all passengers"
Cons: "flight was late."
Cons: "Seats were very close and movies ok"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "WiFi was not working. Flight was 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Missed connecting flight to London. Two days with no baggage (missing)."
Pros: "Entertainment was fantastic!"
Cons: "Told us to pick up stroller in Dublin. Get there and we are told that is not possible. Of course we not have arrived at our final destination without said stroller. Seats are on the pitiful side of the spectrum and gets a bit old being nickled and dimed for drinks, sodas, food. . ."
Pros: "The crew on the plane and at the Dublin airport were nice. We haven’t made it to Dubrovnik. Plane from Newark was delayed, we missed our connection, our luggage was misplaced, then they didn’t have another flight until the next day, and they sent us to a hotel that didn’t have any rooms available."
Cons: "What couldn’t have? Thanks Aer Lingus."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the movies were free."
Cons: "Our seats wouldn’t lean back. Other people’s did however."
Cons: "Delayed flight, no snacks, and staff not as friendly."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and excellent onboard entertainment. Friendly crew"
Cons: "The breakfast burrito was not good quality. Also, gluten free options would help me"
Pros: "The pretzels."
Cons: "The customer service from Aer Lingus is the worst ever. This is our honeymoon and it got ruined. The flight was 3 hrs delayed, and they started rerouting people that had connection flights to London, we had a connection and randomly Wendy the service agent decide to not reroute us because we had plenty of time, of course we didn’t make the flight, we have been hostages of Aer Lingus for the last 21 hrs so far, but more will be added until we make it to Hamburg tomorrow at noon instead of tonight at 8."
Cons: "- My seat was broken and could not recline. This not only made the 9 hour flight uncomfortable, but even more so when the person in front of me reclined their seat fully. - I understand it's Aer Lingus' policy, but I have never experienced--in my many travels--paying for alcohol on an international flight, especially cash only. - Regarding the above, I had to remind the flight attendant three times that she owed me change, and each time I was greeted with a sneer and, "Yea, we don't have it yet". It was not so much the money, but the incredibly rude service and charging for what should be a free drink! Some of the stewards (on the opposite side of the aisle) seemed very friendly and accommodating, but unfortunately, the two ladies on my side made me feel like a burden rather than a welcomed customer. - I guess it's, you get what you pay for...but I was just surprised at "breakfast" being tossed a box with a burrito--no napkin, utensils, plate, nothing. I won't be flying Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "Entertainment was the best thing about this awful airline flight."
Cons: "Food was awful. Worst Ive ever had in around 200k miles of flying. Food service was rushed. i.e they asked me if I wanted coofee or tea immediately after serving my main meal. My son was feeling unwell due to asthma and asked for water. He got a lesson in manners and etiquette as he didn’t say please. I asked another female staff gor water. She didn’t respond so I waited a few minutes before askinfg again. She snapped ‘ I heard you!’ Made me feel uncomfortable asking for anything and that I was a nuisance. Seemed they could hardly wait to serve dinner and turn the lights off. I’ll be taking my own food on the return flight. I’m not expecting gourmet on an airline however this food was inedible"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The fact you even had to pay for coffee is absurd . There also should be some in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I asked for Vegetarian food when I booked the flight but I didn't get any. When I asked for Veg food, I was told they didn't have any. With delays and everything, I didn't get to eat anything for 16 some hours."
Pros: "Movie selection and availability"
Cons: "Boarding was late Water was offered only at the beginning"
Pros: "Direct flight LAX to Dublin with no lay overs"
Cons: "No toilet paper or paper hand towels in the bathroom. Early on in the flight I went to ask for toilet paper and was given a nod. Tried a different bathroom and no toilet paper there. Servicing the toilets on the full flight was neglected."
Pros: "He crew were nice."
Cons: "The flight has an hour delay from LAX that caused me to have 20 minuets catch my connection flight and I did not receive my bag. I’m on vacation for 5 days in Hamburg and I’ve already lost 1 day to go out and explore the city. This was my first time flying with Aer Lingus and I unfortunately will be my last time."
Pros: "TVs on seat-backs, good selection of movies and television, USB charging outlet on seat-backs"
Cons: "Every seat came with useless headphone sets: the jacks were for an older model of plane. Flight attendants warned passengers that they had some headsets that would work, but were keeping them reserved for children, so not to bother asking for them. Flight took off more than 3 hours late and airline took no responsibility for delays. Blamed LAX contractors for everything. The airline is responsible for who they do business with. Because of takeoff delays, food and beverage service was also badly delayed. Had to beg for water several hours in, and was brought a single small cup."
Cons: "Our flight from LA to Dublin was cancelled day of and the airline put us on another flight. We came to find out that they did not place my fiancee and myself together. We tried talking to the crew but they seemed apathetic and uninterested in helping us. The said the flight was full and everyone checked in but after boarding we found many open seats.. while on the plane I requested help trying to relocate seats so we could sit together and not a single steward would help us. In the end, we finally found seats on our own... Very unhappy throughout the entire journey the quality of service. Never flown with such rude and unaccomadating service personal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely... what was wrong with this plane was not their fault and they did their best."
Cons: "Not only was my seat cushion lumpy and extraordinarily uncomfortable, the seat back was broken. My video monitor was as well... Possibly the worst overseas flight I've ever taken...10 hours of pure torture. Never again."
Pros: "I was very satisfied with both of the meals that were served in my flight from Dublin to Hartford,CT"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and efficient. The flight was smooth aside from the minor turbulence."
Cons: "I sat in a seat with a broken entertainment screen and the WiFi was so slow it was unusable. The seat I sat in also would recline on its own at times. It made for a very long annoying and boring flight."
Pros: "The flight was very bare bones. Entertainment system froze up half way into a movie. You had to pay for wine with dinner. Even on budget carriers, wine is included with meals on the long hauls. Half a cup of water was served twice during the flight. The cabin was kept quite cold. I wore thick socks and slippers throughout the flight, but had to use the small blanket provided to keep my feet warm. Glad I had a heavy coat! I will avoid this carrier on any long hauls in the future."
Cons: "Dinner not too good. Breakfast very poor. Cold flight. Entertainment not working. Avoid for long hauls."
Pros: "The staff was very courteous and nice. The dinner and breakfast were good quality. Highly recommend Aer Lingus"
Cons: "We had a crying baby behind us and the parents didn't do anything to alleviate the situation"
Pros: "The Dublin to Manchester leg of the flight was far friendlier. Food was bad. No service to speak of on transatlantic potion. Couldn’t even get a refill on coffee after one tiny cup at breakfast."
Pros: "I was surprised at the minimal effort that went into that transatlantic flight. Disgraceful. I'm turned off enough to never fly aer lingus again. It was barely two steps above Ryan Air."
Cons: "The food looked like one put any effort into it, the coffee only came with milk and no milk substitute, there was only one kind of tea--no decaf and no herbal tea, and no butter substitute for people with dietary restrictions. Just a complete unthoughtful shame. My back is still sore from the lack of ergonomic considerations in seating. The blankets were cheap and thin and the plane was loud with no complimentary earplugs or sleep masks. Awful experience."
Cons: "They sat me in the last row again and seat did not recline. I was halfway in the aisle. Most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever been on. You had to pay for tea. No entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew. Aer Club members board first - worth joining!"
Cons: "Lost expensive iPhone and literally could not get down to floor with ridiculous crowded seats, minimal possible movement, to investigate the "klunk." When I exited and discovered missing phone, was sent on wild goose chase OUT of secure area, and it took 30 minutes before cleaning crew checked my seat area. Phone gone."
Pros: "Service on biz class."
Cons: "Too many boarding / customs lines in Dublin. They dumped all of my toiletries that I had carried across Europe."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The worst (hardest) airline seat I have ever endured! I dread the return home"
Pros: "The food was good the flight was average. The airline staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were very small not enough legroom. The armrests didn't fold up completely."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "(1) boarding chaotic, misinformation (2) cold cabin, no blanket (3) entertainment system very slow, map not working (4) Overpriced wine and beer on transatlantic segment while competitors serve those free of charge"
Pros: "The boarding was very efficient and overall the staff was very nice."
Cons: "Seat reclining are horrible. No space to eat, read or enjoy the entertainment. Seat cushioning not existent, and food quality is poor."
Pros: "Called the customer service to attempt to check-in online wasn't able to do it.the rep was hard to understand and he decides to hang up on after waiting 18 mins.called 2nd time I was on hold 15 mins asked for a supervisor. I told to call aer lingus to check in."
Cons: "The flight one flight attendant was just rude before take off my blanket was on my sit, she takes it and puts it inside the overhead and says you can get it back once we take off. Don't understand the meaning of that??? Then the same attendant was giving out breakfast sandwich I had to convince her that my son didn't get a sandwich. They walked by with the coffee cart she COMPLETELY IGNORE ME. Same thing for water. Bad experience with customer service center and one nasty attendant."
Cons: "Dodgy electronics, had to reset screen in headrest several times and never really worked. Sat 30 + mins in tarmac after landing waiting for a stand."
Pros: "I was satisfied with the ease of boarding, and the flight was relatively comfortable."
Cons: "I did not appreciate the airline encouraging us to pay for an upgrade on seats that did not merit an upcharge. The entertainment centers did not work well (or at all) on either leg of our trip. The crew was not generous with water and acted a little put out when we asked for anything."
Cons: "Cheap headphones given out for the movies, almost impossible to hear speech"
Cons: "Not able to ceheck in on line and then was put on standby for a ticket I purchased in January. Others in my party got their seats at the airport when they checked in. Two of us were put on standby. Food had a problem with coordinating serving and there were few liquids offered for an overseas flight where it is important to stay hydrated. One liquid with each meal. If I had known I would have bought water at the airport before boarding."
Cons: "After getting to the airport with 3 plus hours to spare I still couldn't get a seat until 40 minutes before take off. On my first leg of the trip my boarding pass stated I was a "Stand By". That was incorrect I paid full economy fare. The twenty four hours before my trip instead of being filled with anticipation was more a management of anxiety. So everything leading up to the trip overshadowed the actual flight experience. We did fly Aer Linus, but that was booked through British Airways. Also screen to choose movies, TV programs need some new screens not easy to press and get a response."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The ladies who checked in our bags were incredibly rude to me, my mother and my husband. On top of that they forgot to add the tags for Rome on our luggage so they got stuck in a connecting flight in Chicago. When we asked the supervisor to tell the people in luggage claim to forward our luggage to Rome when we were in Chicago (because of course the connecting flight only gave us 40 minutes to get to our flight to Rome so we didn't have enoughtrime to check our bags a second time), he said no. What would it have killed the guy to make a simple phone call? The alternative was to wait a day or two to see if maybe we could catch another flight to Rome with our luggage. I've never made a complaint before and I've never really made review because I don't it really accomplishes anything and I'm sure the idiots at American Airlines will never see or care about this, but I was extremely disappointed. They didn't get any empathy from your employees not even an im sorry, and I get that this job is hard but I have the same job too and I suck it up and still try to empathize with my customers. Oh well... it is what it is. The Airlines can do whatever they want."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Very courteous staff. Comfortable seats and great movie selection. Food wasn't bad either."
Cons: "Sound was very poor on movies. Difficult to recline seat."
Cons: "Other passengers didn't understand how pounding on the back of a seat affects the passenger in the seat"
Pros: "Serviceable flight."
Cons: "Unable to check in 24 hours before the flight."
Cons: "Late flight made our connection at Dublin very nerve-racking. We had to almost run to get to our connecting flight."
Cons: "The personnel are just not well informed about their jobs and really don't seem to be very smart. Sorry- I fly a lot. These folks are dumb."
Pros: "Leather seats"
Cons: "Our flight had an 1hr delay, lucky to make our connecting flight but our luggage did not make the connecting flight. Waiting for airline to send us our luggage. Did not offer free water or soda for a 3 hr flight. Seats were dirty"
Pros: "Absolutely splendid staff and flights that we had. They made us feel right at home!"
Cons: "The crew was very aggressive and impolite. As a matter of fact I have never been in a flight in my life with such sort of crew attitude - especially with my kids (ages 6 and 10) - real animals. I will make an effort to not to with IBERIA ever again. I’m concierge key with AA and only with with Iberia because of the One World partnership."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff was lacki g customer service"
Cons: "I felt abandoned by crew when asking for water"
Pros: "Loved the retrofitting work done on the 777-200 for atmosphere and head room. The flight crew were among the most accommodating I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Hanging flown on several wide bodied aircraft, it’s been my experience that the A330 has a much better coach experience than the 777 aircraft models. For me, it’s a matter of legroom. Fortunately, I didn’t have anyone next to me on the flight and was able to spread out a bit (I’m 6’5”!!) My only other complaint was that while this was booked as an Iberia flight, the flights were all serviced by American Airlines. Check-in, seat selection were all handled by American. It was a little confusing in the online check-in process, because for months, the AA app wouldn’t recognize anything but the return legs of the trip using the record locator provided by Expedia."
Cons: "Crew was friendly to some people and completely ignored others, or at least me. Not sure if they knew Passenger status or what."
Cons: "Offer drinks, water"
Cons: "One of the best flights is had. Love A340 and the crew and service definitely better than AA or BA by far."
Pros: "crew and flight excellent"
Cons: "too close the seats"
Cons: "I could not fly"
Cons: "The space between seats was just microscopic. I’m 6ft tall and I really had a bad time in those 2h30, all twisted and unconfortable."
Pros: "Food on board was really good in general and some of the crew members where so polite and helpful but the rest of them nop."
Cons: "The way the crew was serving the meals and offering everything was disappointing, in few word no good. Coffee, coffees anyone? Coffee, coffee! Please! That’s not a way for serving"
Pros: "On time overall, no delays"
Cons: "Boarding was awful and no food at all, it is a 3 hour flight and not cheap but even water cost"
Cons: "Were not there to rate but someone paid you an extra fare so you made double the money on one 2 seats! BRAVO Standing Ovation!!!"
Pros: "It was my first flight with Iberia - I was very pleased with the entire experience."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The small space between seats"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "A cup of water given anywhere else for free was not provided. There was no entertainment. The plane was old and seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Tiny food. Late one hour."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "I had ordered a gluten free meal but in the chaos of my seat moving multiple times, it got lost in the shuffle so I wasn't able to eat much of the food that was served. I have long legs and the seat provided almost no where for them to go. I was very uncomfortable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The movies and the leg room seemed better then normal"
Pros: "First flight ever where water or coffee we’re not offered. Good cart came out. Nothing offered. 3 attendants? To do what??"
Cons: "No beverage or food offered"
Pros: "Almost nothing!"
Cons: "Seats small and uncomfortable. My seat did not recline for 8 1/2-9 hours (middle seat-even after told it was a good seat). My sons entertainment screen did not work for the last 3 1/2 hours. The stewardess’ didn’t even respond to the call light and after myself and sister walked back there, nothing was done. Stewardess’ sat and talked in the back and never walked around. When the finally brought drinks, never even asked why the light was on. They also were extremely unfriendly because our incoming flight from Malaga was late . All 4 pieces of luggage missed the flight and in NYC we had to ask for robes to sleep in and tooth brushes. we felt horrible flying the next day. Three pieces of luggage came 2 days later that we had to go back to airport to get. The fourth was delivered one week later with only 3 wheels!"
Pros: "Fast efficient boarding."
Cons: "No frills flight. You have to pay for snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Second time they lose my luggage. After 9 hours in the airport they were not able to put my luggage in the right place."
Pros: "Landed in foggy night. Crew fantastic. On time. Cabin clean"
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."
Cons: "I called the airline a week before our departure regarding the baggage fee. I was assured the fee was included in the price. However, at the time of check in, I was charged a $55 checked bag fee."
Cons: "Airliner contracted out to another flight operator. We looked up and down the terminals trying to find the sign for IBERIA to no avail. It was quite hectic and stressful to arrive to the airport and not see your airline booth anywhere. No signage or anything there of to indicate Iberia or the other operator taking over this Iberia's flight. Then they wanted to charge for my carry-on saying it is too large. Went back and forth arguing for about 10 minutes then I found the bag sizing stand and demostrated to them my carry-on bag fits inside the bars as indicated in their sign. They said oh well it looks large from here. Customer Service is non. It is more Customer Harrassment. DO YOU PAY YOUR CUSTER SERVICE REPS Commission for every checked bag or something? Too bad there aren't many more options but I am considering going to social media to with this. NOT HAPPY and not flying with IBERIA anytime soon. SEnd me my refund!"
Pros: "Entertainment package consisting of up-to-date TV shows/ series and movies that have recently been released. The time passed by faster than expected with this. The meal plan was better than some restaurants. With Meatballs being the main course followed by rice & veggies and finished with the sugar cake."
Cons: "Having the seat by the bathroom. Even though passengers were instructed not to form a line, they did and were encroaching in my personal space for the majority of the flight. Though this is not an airline issue, it did effect the comfort of the 4.6hr flight."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and it was wuick"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Nice crew and good selection of movies and music."
Cons: "Legroom is limited so it was hard to sleep."

Cons: "Seats are tiny. No legroom."
Cons: "No food and no water"
Pros: "Upon boarding the flight attendant looked at my seat # and directed to to the correct side of the aircraft. I found this to be very helpful, since on the trip over I was in the wrong side had to bother people to move so I could get to the correct side of the aircraft. Travel can be very stressful, this made boarding quicker and easier."
