Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight was very accommodating. Everything from eye shades, tooth brush and slippers were provided. I took the red eye and slept the whole way."

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."

Cons: "Boarding took a longer time than normal"

Pros: "They take great care of their customers"

Cons: "Hi, Your company lost one of my check-in bags. I am in Bucharest now, still waiting for my bag. Nobody knows where my bag is. Please, help find it! Under Doinita M Toranzo's name, big red bag! under Thank you!"

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: "Flight attendants are professional and efficient, and the aircraft is clean and has an excellent entertainment center for all passengers."
Cons: "Rows are too close, with my knees pressed against the seat in front of me. That is misery for the 10-hour flight from Chicago to Istanbul. We had a much better experience when we flew Turkish Airlines a few years ago. Sad!"

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: "Terible transit info. No information / custmoer service help at all in Istambul. Rude and unwilling to help airport employees! Gate changet without notice/ almost lost transit flight.. Turkis airline crew did not come by during flight until breakfast. Sooo thirsty...."

Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."

Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Not much"

Pros: "Everything! Voted best airlines in Europe for a reason!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"

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."

Cons: "Coach seats provide minimal leg room, and even less when seats are reclined."

Pros: "The service was very respectful and friendly."
Cons: "My volume didn't work at the seat I was sitting at"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "1- Flight was delayed for 2 hours although weather conditions were perfect,, OK, sometimes it happens. No apology or explanation we're given 2- Entertainment screen did not work for the 10 hour flight. Told the attendant multiple times. It did not function in all the seats not only mine"

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: "Good service and good food"

Pros: "Wonderful flight with spacious seats."

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: "Not a lot of options as far as the entertainment was concerned. The food was really good and the staff really courteous. However the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No leg space Not a lot of TV shows"

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!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew...i forgot to reserve my vegetariano meal, but the crew provided for me.."

Pros: "Very good service, food, equipment and timeliness"

Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
