Very good service, all were ok/excellent
Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.
Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great.
Cons: "The crew at check in was really inconsiderate and has given us false information! Despite of what documents were required and submitted I was not allowed to board the plane."
Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."
Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."
Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."
Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"
Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"
Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"
Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
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: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff, on the plane and at the airports. Gave advice and directions when asked. Asked about time for food serving and said anytime you want something, come to the galley."
Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."
Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."
Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Cons: "Luggage items are missing."
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Pros: "Smooth flight, staff very attentive, lots of great new movies to watch from"
Cons: "Staff kept reaching past me to shut my window without asking me first. Very rude."
Pros: "The crew we're good"
Cons: "Very less leg room"
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight 1 1/2 hours. Other than that, the flight was good."
Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"
Cons: "I was offered an upgrade to 1st class, but not to my wife, I m thankful but had to decline the upgrade. I was hoping for more courtesy for an upgrade to us both as traveling couple rather than to one only"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable. Push back was not working"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."
Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "The crew and food was great."
Cons: "The insect repellant sprayed twice through the cabin was horrible."
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment was great! Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "The cuatomer service at checkin was rude and the gate staff in dubai was also very rude i will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful, food goood !"
Cons: "More you to stretch out"
Pros: "Amazing flight to travel for long travel! Relaxing! Easy to adjust in the whole flight! Crew was giving an awesome service!!"
Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."
Pros: "I slept well since I updated to business class."
Cons: "Service was awfull. Noticed the air hostesses showed discrimination while serving meals and attending the passengers like me. I had a very positive experience in the past but not on this trip."
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."
Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive staff who made the flight as pleasurable as possible for us. One of the staff helped me switch from the full row I was in to an empty row which made the long flight so much more comfortable."
Pros: "customercare was good. Thank you."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "Not enough storage space. Beds not the most comfortable. No wi-fi."
Pros: "The crew and overall experience was great. Comfortable travel conditions and crew was very responsive and proactive in comfort."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, nothing special."
Pros: "excellent services thanks"
Cons: "services provided to impaired handicap persons ,need improvement thanks"
Cons: "I shouldn't be forced to change my seat just because a hostess told me to then she was rude to me because I didn't then I finally changed my seat and she was ok- I don't think this is appropriate"
Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."
Pros: "Very nice check in, because the people weren't rude. They accepted my luggage and gave me my passes."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Service, comfort"
Cons: "Too much costly for a Tuesday flight. But rest all good"
Pros: "Everyone was very plesant. The flight dinner was tasty."
Pros: "The environment was good and clean The food was on time and fresh"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "Excellent highly diverse crew. Good food. Very comfortable. Fantastic entertainment selection."
Cons: "Expensive. Great to have wifi for nominal fee but problems getting and maintaining connection."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Cons: "Checkin process takes long"
Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."
Cons: "Flight wasn't booked, so people scrambled to take over middle sections. If you weren't in middle you were somewhat in a comfort trouble."
Pros: "The Airport handling staff I happen to deal with in Chicago and Dubai were very courtios and helpful . Same goes with the in flight crew ....too good ."
Cons: "There's nothing I can think of EXCEPT , they did not give disembarkation cards to fill in the aircraft befitting landing which caused everyone lot of inconvenience after landing at Hyderabad airport ."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
Cons: "Coffee was super week No movies ORD-JFK"
Cons: "Tv dont work in a fly of 4hr 30 min"
Cons: "Was 2hrs behind schedule"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."
Pros: "Service was awesome, 100% recommended"
Pros: "The crew was good, and they tried to make up for the delay with a gift certificate"
Cons: "More than three hours of delay because there was no crew assigned to that flight"
Cons: "Everything could have been better. Flight delayed 3 hours due to JetBlue schedule mismanagement. No consideration for elderly when we had to change gates across airport. Poor communication on flight updates. And then as a perk to make up for delays, tried to sell us a credit card. Just Awful."
Cons: "The food can be better."
Pros: "Loved the roomy seats"
Cons: "Sound system was low quality. Hard to here the movie."
Pros: "Unbelievable for the price."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."
Cons: "Left very late because of delayed inbound flight and need for deicing."
Pros: "The rescheduling of my flight via a phone call"
Cons: "The delay of course"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Took 3+ hours to get in the plane"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a little lacking and the captain did not mentioned that we had landed almost a full hour later than scheduled."
Pros: "It was a great trip for the cost."
Pros: "Free WiFi. Cute vids for Holloween"
Pros: "I liked that the pilot was able to make up some time because our flight was delayed over one hour in Chicago."
Cons: "The notification that the flight was boarding early. I enabled notifications and still did not receive notification that the plane was boarding."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes at takeoff but landed when it was scheduled, so it was fine. Flight attendants didn’t make you stay in your seat, so you could use the lavatory. A fine, uneventful flight. Free WiFi. Snacks. Drinks. Fairly comfortable seats with decent legroom."
Cons: "Wish the seats in front of the emergency exit reclined."
Pros: "The crew was unfailing cheerful and helpful. The seats are comfortable and there’s a little more space than some airlines. The fight and particularly the landing was very smooth. Great experience!"
Pros: "Turbulence, wait time before landing and staying still for long periods on bothends"
Pros: "crew was supportive. wifi in the flight"
Cons: "the wait time and the boarding, off boarding of the flight. No electricity in the aircraft."
Cons: "IT WAS TWO BOURS LATE!"
Pros: "More leg room Affordable prices Snacks dunkin donut coffee Pleasant flight attendant Punctuality"
Pros: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Cons: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Pros: "The crew talked a big game. They were ready for anything, including loss of cabin pressure, paid snacks, and even a water landing."
Cons: "No water landing! I was excited to float around on a hot day, go down an awesome slide, and catch some sick waves, but come on people, we never even got a chance!"
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "When I asked if there was any chance I could sit with my family they were nice enough to change are setting. Just a thought if the setting is random when you check in for your flight somewhere the computer should at least work with putting the last names together just a thought."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, crew, and cleanliness were 100000% on point. Loved it."
Cons: "Turbulence and the flight was longer than necessary because we had to go around bad weather. Not the fault of JetBlue!"
Pros: "Cheerful, efficient service. No hidden costs. Free gate to gate WiFi. Comfortable seats. Never flown them before and they are now at the top of my list."
Cons: "Nothing yet."
Pros: "Adequate leg room and ability to take a carry on we if your extra charge"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we would have missed our connection in NYC. So we had to cancel the trip."
Pros: "Good snacks, entertainment and excellent WiFi. Boarding was efficient and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "Per usual crew and plan itself were nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours from scheduled take off"
Pros: "I dont usually fly, staff was friendly and helpful, made my experience less stressful."
Cons: "my flight was delayed for 2 hours and there was no compensation for it"
Cons: "No movies just Direct TV."
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Cons: "Turbulence was terrible, understand that is not JetBlue issue - wanted to note."
Pros: "Captain and crew"
Cons: "Luggage handling"
Pros: "You took great care of my wife who needed a wheelchair. the flight itself was delayed due to weather. I totally understand. I love the extra legroom"
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Cons: "flight was delayed 2 hours :("
Pros: "Crew was happy and friendly"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "They refund me the money"
Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"
Pros: "Ez check in with kiosk"
Cons: "I would like to see an organic food option, even with a fee if necessary. Recommendation, fruit like banana or apple. Certified organic."
Pros: "Extra leg room"
Cons: "On both legs of our vacation, going and coming we experienced long delays , 2 hours Boston.to Vhicago and 3 hours Chicago to Boston"
Pros: "This was my first time with JetBlue and I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the plane. It was pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff and the on board entertainment and snacks"
Cons: "The last time I took JetBlue the flight was delayed by almost 3 hours"
Pros: "Nothing. I was sold a ticket for 709 dollars and wasn’t told I couldn’t get on until showing up to the gate. Therefore I had to spend 1000 more dollars to book another ticket because budget air wouldn’t change or refund the flight."
Cons: "Not selling a ticket with a layover where someone with a US passport cannot travel through at the moment. Be more forthcoming."
Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "Great smooth flight, crew were friendly and many movies and shoes to choose from."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not much leg room for the unfortunate ones who fly Economy class. Food was ok."
Pros: "Crew was great. Peppy and kind."
Cons: "ORD ZRH seats extremely crowded. Wished for comfy Star Alliance seats for that flight which we did enjoy from ZRH BUD"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Carry on baggage size misleading"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were uncomfortable. No air. It was extremely hot."
Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The flight staff was just okay - they could have been friendlier. The seat cushions seemed old - they were comfortable enough for sitting but not comfortable to sleep."
Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"
Pros: "Amazing food, There were pillows, blankets and earbuds on every seat. Really a great flight overall and I would fly with them again."
Cons: "The only minor complaint was that the seats are so small that when the person in front of you reclines, you literally can’t get out of your seat."
Pros: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."
Pros: "Crew was attentive to passenger needs in a quiet way: without fanfare, did all possible to make it a pleasant, comfortable trip. In fact, went out of their way to get me a wheelchair ride to next flight, which I dearly needed"
Cons: "First flight was delayed due to circumstances outside of airline’s control. They managed to get us there and help me with wheelchair, etc to make flight. Great service and kindness"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the crew was great"
Cons: "Chose the option with Swiss because it showed that a checked bag was included. Got to the airport and was told to pay up for each checked bag. Great start to the trip."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."
Cons: "I had a carry-on sized bag which would have fit in the overhead compartment. I was told that it would not fit the Swiss Air compartment, thus was forced to check it at the gate. I expressed my concern that it would get lost (thus the reason I never opt to check bags) and was assured "They are very efficient in Zurich." When we arrived in Madrid, my bag was not at the carousel. I was told at Customer Service that it was on another flight, but that they could deliver it to my Airbnb between 4-7 pm. I had to wait there instead of enjoying my vacation to wait for my bag. The bag did not arrive until 10:30 pm. I did not have my clothes or belongings with me all day. Swiss Air in particular needs to update their overhead compartment regulations, as my bag definitely would have fit there, and could have avoided this entire situations."
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The entire process from boarding in Chicago until arrival in Athens was very smooth."
Pros: "Great airline overall!"
Cons: "No leg room due to the airplane box under the seat in front of me. Very difficult to straighten legs out, difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
Cons: "The seats in coach plus and Bussines were terrible"
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Cons: "I paid to upgrade my seats and they were still tiny. I could not straighten my legs. The armrest also doesn’t go up all the way, so couples flying overnight together, beware!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Are the seats getting smaller or am I getting bigger?"
Pros: "Fast flight and crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Food is just ok, could me better, I remember 2012 when I was flying first time with Swiss (same route), food was excellent and seats were much more comfortable. I’m thinking to get back on Turkish Airlines although the trip is much longer, they are much better in both above mentioned segments."
Pros: "The flight was perfect until we hit horrible turbulence. 1 out of every 4 people was throwing up. We had to redirect to Milan."
Cons: "Swiss air is completely inept at handling a very normal reroute due to weather. 200 displaced people are standing in line. I’ve been here 5 hours and have not heard a word of announcement from them, our questions are rudely thwarted, and they continue to take half-an-hour to an hour per person with uncertain results. Give use new flights or a hotel."
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"
Pros: "very professional crew, clean cabin, interesting choice of documentaries"
Cons: "it would have been nice to see a hostess walk through with water every hour, of so why is there no world news in your tv selection?"
Pros: "The flight attendants seemed very courteous, but unable to do anything about the situation."
Cons: "We had a family of four sitting behind us. The father yelled all the time. They took up four overhead bins and he was frequently up and down getting things out of the bins. His very hairy large belly was touching my daughters head every time. He and his children punched the backs of our seats on a regular basis. My back was in constant pain and I was unable to do very many things due to the back pain during my "vacation", The flight attendants had to remind the parents that their children could not stand on the seats during takeoff or crawl around under the seats. No ability to change seats or I would have. I didn't have a problem with the other children on the flight, when they were crying their parents tried to do something. However these people brought playdough for their child to roll out or punch on the seat tray and all they did was constantly yell loudly at their children, Well not about the kicking, punching, or crawling around. Just yell in general at them."
Pros: "I like the space in business class and the staff were really nice"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, they ran out of scotch (single malt) and I only had 1 drink"
Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Seat in front of you tilts back and gives you NO room. Horrible!!"
Cons: "Airline lost my flight, no explanation and or apology. Seats were terrible could not move when seat in front was reclined. No economy plus, no reciprocal consideration for gold status on star alliance except for one checked bag free. I will never fly Swiss again"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "Very prompt and courteus"
Cons: "Baggage missing for three days. Communication poor."
Cons: "When getting our meals the flight attendants didn't ask anyone to move their seats back up so it was difficult to eat since there was no space."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The service and food was excellent. There is no question about dislike"
Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, and also very skilled so that their service was unobtrusive, graceful, and helpful. They took great care to get people what they wanted, and I saw them fulfill a few special requests from the people around me politely and quickly. The entertainment selections were good. The variety of interesting musical selections allowed me to go the whole flight without running down the battery on any of my own musical devices. The seat space was comfortable, especially compared to domestic flights I've taken for the last 10 years. The enforcement of carry-on luggage rules meant the overhead compartments were sufficient for what was brought aboard and people weren't filling the foot-space with bags."
Pros: "Crew and flight service are excellent top notch. Also they are very friendly and helpful. Make flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Seats are too close together in coach, very cramped and uncomfortable if you are a tall or large person."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't control the airflow at your seat."
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and helpful. The food served on our flight to Zurich was delicious. We loved the big movie selection which helped pass the time."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible on this plane. If anyone reclined their seats, you were trapped and could barely get out of the row to get up or go to the bathroom. Boarding was a bit like herding cats and everyone was jammed up trying to get on without any orderly direction."
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"
Cons: "Taking a bus to plane"
Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"
Cons: "Lost my baggage, refused to give another ticket when getting to Istanbul late made me miss my next flight. Had to sit 10 hours and buy another ticket from another airline to make My destination a day late."
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."

Cons: "Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner."
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."
Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."
Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is the best airlines we have every flown on in our international travels. The food is excellent. The service is excellent."
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."
Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."
Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"
