Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew service was amazing - so diligent and courteous. They were incredibly well trained and I would rate their service level as being one of the most competitive within business class in Asia."
Cons: "Seats were reasonably comfortable but not as spacious in design as in other business class cabins, so that could be a concern for some travelers. Also, I was not able to convert the main menu of the entertainment system to my preferred language so it was a bit difficult to navigate (that being said, they provided a card that guided me, so it was still usable, and the entertainment selection was good!)."
Cons: "Electricity didn’t work in my pod"
Pros: "The crew that checked me and those who were onboard were very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Better choices of movies on board."

Pros: "The flight attendant and staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Japan airport is updated with excellent facility and flight transferring was easy."
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"

I stayed near another gait that had international flights, and it turned out the gate was clear on the other side of the complex, which is obscured by construction. If I hadn’t asked one of the workers there I would have missed my flight."

Pros: "Nice flight, right on time."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"

Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."

Pros: "Everything accept the food selection."

Pros: "Plane was super clean and comfortable. A long flight but we'll cared for by host."
Pros: "The crew was great although I needed to ask them for my meal cause they passed by me. They thought I had my meal already which I didn’t.

Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
Cons: "In flight crew manager in greenish dress was rude! Seemed like there weren’t enough restrooms on flight."
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."

Pros: "Excellent service by flight crew. Good selection for entertainment. Flight was enjoyable."

Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."
Cons: "old plane, boarding ramp smelled musty, food not nice, entertainment system was old not touch screen, male crew not patient with passengers, drinks stingy(split a can of soda with other passengers, and gave you a 1/4 cup). When asked for more OJ with breakfast was told they would come back later(mouth was very dry due to the air). Not impressed as we paid good money for the ticket with the poor service"

Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."

Pros: "The crew was great and friendly, the movie selection was great, and I greatly enjoyed the food."
Cons: "By the time I got to board the overhead bins above my seat were full so I had to go further back. I guess it's my fault for not knowing when I chose my seat, but it was right behind the bassinet row so of course there was a crying kid right in front of me. Meanwhile the USB charging port didn't work despite multiple resets by the crew (who were very nice about it, by the way, and even offered to charge my phone at a separate station, which was very nice of them). Finally, those entertainment consoles were bright and had no intuitive of way of turning off. They need *ONE* giant power button to turn them both off at one go. How hard can that be? And they kept turning back on when the PA turned on for announcements, and not turning themselves off."
Pros: "The crew is okay but they seem to be always in a hurry that they do not notice us when we ask for somerhing like water or anything to drink."
Cons: "We noticed that we felt hungry, the meal served was not enough. The snack was not served and we had to ask for something to fill our tummy."
Cons: "Some crew always forget to say PLEASED..."

Cons: "Food ia not that good. Need to have more flavor"
Pros: "The is nothing I can say I did not like with the Vancouver to Taipei Sector of our flight. I was impressed with the crew, the food, entertainment, seat space, leg room, etc..."
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. This was is our first experience with EVA Air. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad. The food was great! Both my wife and I like the dinner and the breakfast served. Also, the price of EVA Air’s Premium Economy is great compared to similar Asian Airlines from Vancouver to Manila. EVA Air was the cheapest when we started shopping for flights from Vancouver-Taipei-Manila."
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Was asked if I could check in my carryon because flight was full. I refused because I had something fragile in the bag. after boarding several overhead bins were empty."
Cons: "I was stuck in a window seat with 2 handi capped women in the middle am Nd aisle seats. I felt trapped. I could not use toilet because these women had so many bags that it was all but impossible to get out of my seat. In an emergency i would have died. Bottom line. I would have died."

Pros: "Boarding is systematic. The zone parking and constant reminders that it is not boarding time yet alert and reminds passengers to follow directions for an efficient boarding. Love the hello kitty atmosphere on flight ORD to TPE."
Cons: "The green uniform. It reminds me of USA soldiers uniform. Stewardess does a nice job, but they should smile more, especially in a long flight."
Pros: "I like the food. And also the great crew! very nice and always smiling."
Pros: "I like the food. And also the great crew! very nice and always smiling. I didn't get bored because of the entertainment and they're always serving food all throughout the flight! I'll definitely fly with EVA again."
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "Great employees and great airline."
Cons: "The only problem I ever have is my frequent flier number. They can't match my name so I have not gotten credit for any of my flights and the check in people and ticket counter people could not help me."
Pros: "organized fast service!"
Pros: "I like how they offer different varieties of entertainment on board music, movies, games etc. Amenities for economy class not that bad'"
Cons: "Limited food choices"
Cons: "My tv was broken, so the charger didn't work. For a 14 hour that was awful."
Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."
Cons: "Foddd no gud"
Pros: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Cons: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to weather conditions The cabin was too hot It was difficult to find the cabin crew"
Cons: "The crew should have been there with the passengers"
Cons: "Nice and smooth journey"
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."
Pros: "Food on the second leg ( Istanbul to Delhi ) of the journey was good."
Cons: "Poor Boarding In Chicago, no lines were formed to let people board in an organized fashion. Insufficien/inappropriate food ( BEEF Prevented choices ) - Eliminate beef from your food choices. Many people like me can eat Non vegetarian meals like chicken, fish , EXCEPT BEEF Ran out of the Salmon fish dish. I was given a snacking cheese sandwich instead! This would not have happened if you had selected other than a beef dish! Cramped seating. The airlines greed shows in picking out the seat placement design. The plane had extremely limited knee room. I'm five foot five inches tall and my knees were almost touching the seat in front."
Pros: "The staff is very accommodating and the meals served on board were good."
Pros: "Once my wife reached the gate, having left me behind at security, Turkish Airlines waited and were patient with us, the last to board the plane. The food and plane and bathrooms were all without any problems."
Cons: "We had a 80 minute layover in Frankfurt. Turkish Airlines should make note that this is not sufficient for making a connection. 1. The terminals require extensive walking. Not a problem except for time. 2. Security entering the terminal was seriously understaffed. There were a hundred security personnel, but thousands of passengers. The line stretched for half a mile. 3. Cutting, disorganization, mismanagement, lack of organization, and airport layout all contributed to making this a very stressful hour for us."
Cons: "Boarding was delaeyd 5 hour's ,Very very bag experience, the trailer baby and car seat i waited more than an hour, together with more people, were not found"
Pros: "The service was very nice and courteous"
Cons: "The seats don’t match up to the comfort level and privacy of the other airlines"
Pros: "Service, flight and landing, exceptional!!!"
Cons: "No cons..."
Cons: "The AC wasn’t turned on for 2 hours of passengers being on the plane and it was easily 100 degrees inside. Everyone was hot and miserable. The seats were also extremely close together. I have never been so uncomfortable on a long haul flight."
Pros: "service, no delays."
Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Please include sea food in your menu"
Pros: "Good personal movie choices"

Pros: "The meals, items to make the trip relaxing like a toothbrush and slippers."
Cons: "That I accidentally left my sweatshirt :("
Pros: "Turkish airlines has great service and crew in plane."
Cons: "Hi, The flight was great. However my layover at airport lounge was long. I didn't like their (Turkish Business lounge)policy for not letting me have the room to sleep as the layover was more than 7hrs. I was told to ask for a hotel at reception. When i did, they said that they dont have any hotel inside and cant take me to ourside hotel too. The staff at reception of lounge was not courteous either. I only needed the room to sleep for 3 or 4 hrs. Anyway, the flight itself was great, no complaints"
Pros: "I sat in coach but was treated like I was in first class. Hot towels. Entrees were very excellent. The food was above what I expected coach meals to be from my experiences flying different carriers to over 8 different countries. The customer service was amazing! The lady flight attendant for my section was very attentive and friendly. When I came out of the bathroom, I accidentally interrupted one male flight attendant from doing his job, he politely gestured which reassured me that he would be right with me when he was done with what he was doing. I asked him if they had any heartburn or antiacids available which they didn't. These 2 interactions with the flight attendants made the flight very enjoyable."
Cons: "I was in couch and in the middle seat. I usually get the aisle or window so it was a hard adjustment to sleep in the middle seat because I didn't have leg room and couldn't lean my body against anything so I had to shift often to avoid my bottom from feeling numb."
Pros: "Constant service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Seat area is too small. No room for legs/feet. Garbage was not picked up."
Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Pros: "The service was impeccable!"
Pros: "Although flight left a little late, it arrived ahead of schedule. Planes have been upgraded with better entertainment and are more comfortable."
Cons: "Online checkin was challenging since I had to find out my Istanbul address. Also, first 2-3 hours of flight were very rough & we didn't get any water (very important for long flights) until we had been on the plane for 3 hours."
Pros: "There is nothing bad that I can say about the trip. From the hot towels to refresh yourself to the friendly crew to the food. The entertainment choices were good and easy to use. I would defiantly fly with them again."
Pros: "Since we are first time travelers going from Chicago to Rome, Italy via Istanbul, we cannot compare to other airlines. But, we had a very good experience & the food, services and entertainment rvice were very good! The airfare too was excellent."
Cons: "Not certain if it's typical in long flights/but it was very difficult sleeping in these seats."
Pros: "same as above, i love that i was able to check in online and choose my seat. I love the kit (toothbrush, socks) and the quality of the pouch - super love it! Pillow and blanket as well is still the same quality as before."

Cons: "Flight and Baggage delay"
Pros: "food was excellent"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner."
Pros: "There were great entertainment options, which is really important for such a long haul flight."
Cons: "They had assigned the same seat to me and somebody else, and the other person was already sitting in the seat when I got there. The only other available seat was in business class, and although the flight attendant later admitted I should have been given that business class seat, the other person successfully argued to take it. Staff are good though not as friendly as most Asian airlines."
Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."
Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."
Pros: "Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free."

Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"

Cons: "The seat was hard for a long trip"
Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."
Cons: "The Boeing 777 had the new, smaller seats. No control of overhead airflow among other things. Wish they still had the old Airbus A330's and 340''s."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."
Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."
Pros: "The food and staff were terrific"
Cons: "It was more cramped than other long haul flights, and the temperature changed from hot to cold throughout the flight with no working air"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and was broken. I was not happy about this as it was a 10 hour flight, and could not get comfortable"
Pros: "FOOD,, CREW ATTITUDE & TIMEING."
Cons: "AS BOVE"
Pros: "New, clean, and outstanding seat layout gives lots of room. Flew a 777. Crew was very friendly and efficient. This is more roomy than any U.S. or British 747 I used to fly. The person in front of me fully reclined their seat and it had no impact on my comfort. I am 6 feet tall and this was great."
Pros: "Everything went very well. The food was fantastic. Just too warm on the plane."
