Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours!! No info was given why until we got on the plane. We did not know if the flight was going to get cancelled and if we need to make other arrangements."

Pros: "Incredibly nice staff made you forget about the older plane model you are in. Decent airplane meals and the nonstop from San Diego makes Japan now a frequent destination for us! I lucked out with 3 open adjacent seats roundtrip woo hoooo!"
Cons: "Movie selection was the same on return flight which was a bit of a bummer."

Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "We didn’t dislike anything except the comfort of the seats, but of course that is expected for the Economy Class."

Pros: "The aircraft was excellent."
Cons: "The service could be bit more personal for a long 13 hour flight."

Pros: "Simply excellent !!!"

Pros: "Each seat had their own screens, and there was a small footrest available for each seat."
Cons: "The food was uncharacteristically bad for JAL. They served some sort of French chef's dish that was terrible. Normally, JAL has great food that I love to eat. The plane was also pretty old so it felt more cramped than usual, and the seats we uncomfortable."

Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."

Pros: "Good service."

Pros: "Great flight.The service was excelent.There was always a stewardous walking around and asking if you needed anything.Japan Aitlines is definitely one of the best in the world."

Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"

Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"
Cons: "on a 12 hour flight they served meals only twice, at the beginning and at the end.. i was really starving in-between for somethign heavier (though u can ask for those biscuits etc).."

Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"

Cons: "Didnt realize that Veg Meal, i needed to explicitly request while checking in. ended having bread butter and deserts"

Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Attendants were very supportive. Food was very good."
Cons: "Restroom smelled bad"

Pros: "Best and consistent service."

Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."

Pros: "The people, let's be honest, the Japanese just have a genuine humble way about them, where they actually derive pleasure from providing quality service. In short, they are better human beings, and having a flight with them taking care of me, is a sort of heaven"
Cons: "Food quality."

Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "A quiet, quick and on time flight in a small plane with a competent crew - just as expected!"

Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."

Pros: "The whole Business experience on SQ"
Cons: "During the same trip I discovered 2 different arrangements of the Business Class cabin on Singapore Airlines A350, SQ469 CMB-SIN, and SQ036 SIN-LAX. On the SQ036, I occupied seat 15 A (mono, aisle-window): I did not understand the reasoning behind this layout: Seat facing straight the front of the aircraft, but not enough space to stretch the legs, and limited height for the footrest, feet getting hurled against a ceiling very quickly, and also footrest only on one side = one foot. The deep cavity, that is probably meant to house the lie-flat disposition, is at a 45° angle with the general direction of the seat. I am 77 and not in any way a contortionist. I decided that the best course of action was to remain seated for the duration of the 14:30 hours, flight without extending my legs. Maybe the crew could have explained how the passenger is supposed to fit into that weird design, but I did not ask, afraid that the demonstration might reawaken chronic shoulder and hip pain. I would be glad to read (not test) how this configuration is supposed to convey the sense of comfort expected from a Business Class ticket. It did nothing of the kind for me."

Pros: "Crews were great. Seats space could be better ... overall caring & attentiveness of crew members make a lot of difference."
Cons: "Food! 40 years ago Singapore Airlines was second to none in my book! Now I feel like I was away somewhere and Singapore Airlines has changed dramatically....Must be a lot of moving pieces have changed that I was wondering again during my journey whether I was really flying Singapore Airlines..."

Pros: "The service was outstanding! All of the flight attendants were amazing!"

Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."

Pros: "Crew , amenities and food"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Everything is perfect, the crew services are very warm and professional, I strongly believe that Singapore airlines is the best in world as I tried many airlines but I don’t see like their them, I will strongly recommend and I will be their customer for any flight to Far East inshaallah."
Cons: "I recommend if they can provide paid massage service ( not complementary)at the suits class for long trip because there’s enough space to do it , I’m very glad to congratulate them for the level of service they reached ."

Cons: "20 min late but acceptable for a 15 hr flight"

Pros: "Crew were really lovely and friendly. A bit of spacee on the plane which always helps"
Cons: "Nothing Better than average flight"

Pros: "Service, staff, food, and comfort! Def the better Business class seats I've had. This was the A380 and, the first legwas a 770 but that was really great also. Awesome work Singapore Airlines"

Cons: "We stopped in Korea for two hours, that was not listed on my original itinerary. Then we were late to get to Singapore. My seat was very very small and I was seated next to two very large ppl."

Pros: "Espresso coffee, champagne, crew, headphones"

Pros: "It’s worth it to pay a bit more for the extra legroom seats."

Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

Cons: "Little or no room in Economy"

Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"

Pros: "Amazing service!"

Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."

Pros: "Safe smooth flight. Timely take off and arrival. Great personalised service. Consistently high service standard is well appreciated."

Pros: "Boarding was good"

Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."

Cons: "Kids playing and out of control and the flight attendants wouldn't do anything."

Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."

Pros: "Crew were helpful. Food was good, pillows and blankets in every seat was great. Seats a little small."

Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Equipment rather poor, screen isn't very clear, hard to read subtitles."

Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Attendants are always nice, flight is always smooth."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"
Cons: "Choice to have meal immediately after takeoff or just before landing. I chose to have it just after take-off but didn't expect not to have any breakfast. Not fun leaving the plane hungry."

Pros: "Cabin crew are always great"
Cons: "Cabin fitout is getting tired and dated. Etihad leaves it for dead in first class"

Pros: "I love flying by singapore airlines! Firstly because its direct flight from home plus service on sq is always impeccable. Plus i can easily order a singapore sling and a campari spritz, which is so nice while watching a movie :)"
Cons: "I didnt really like the food this time and entertainment on the way back was so sad! No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up. Coz i was trying to sleep so i dont get jetlagged back in sg. Which i did unfortunately :( not jetlag when i arrived in rome though :)"

Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Clean ,on time"
Cons: "The movies were not updated"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Return flight the movies were the same as three weeks earlier."

Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"

Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"

Cons: "Plane was delayed and no apologies were made. We had to rush to our connecting flight."

Cons: "The video screens need to be upgraded"

Pros: "got us there, efficient and effective crew."

Pros: "Flight arrived earlier than expected and the flight attendants were good and polite."

Pros: "Apart from the delay everything was quite good."
Cons: "The delay of over 1 hour was a bit nerve-racking as we were close to missing our connecting flight."

Pros: "Liked the plug/outlet availablity and the movies."
Cons: "Did not get up to date info on the final destination of bags. Food inedible, climbed from tarmac up the stairs into the plane, seats super uncomfortable, not enough customer service from flight attendants"

Cons: "Hi do veg meal could have been better and communication about my bags could have been better ."

Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."

Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was not the same plane I booked travel on. They changed it, so if it’s the 777 then it is basically widebody short haul seating in business, with a lay flat price! The seats are old and don’t work well. This has been an issue on all the flights I’ve taken between Tokyo and HKG."

Pros: "Was pleasantly upgraded from Economy to Business."

Pros: "The plane was new and had a great feel. Pilots and crew very professional."

Cons: "Same as before. Dirty and smelly. Food was ok."

Pros: "Very professional and attentive"

Pros: "Yup all gud"
Cons: "All gud"

Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."

Pros: "The staff at Cathay Pacific were awesome."

Cons: "Offering drinks more times throughout the flight."

Pros: "haagan daz chocolate ice cream was a surprise"
Cons: "the rice with fish didn’t taste that nice and the veggy was a bit overcooked"

Pros: "Flight departed on time and even reached early. Flight staff was very friendly and welcoming. Nice selection of snack throughout the 16hr flight. The economy seats were to me at least very roomy"

Pros: "Familarity with airline"
Cons: "Limited food options. No drinks service."

Pros: "On time ..."
Cons: "Seats were too small! No personal hygiene kit available in long flight .... bathroom faucet was not clean. Some stewards and stewardess were not helpful but some are. I asked for help but one stewardess did not respond but one did help and was helpful. Ground crew were courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Not much to like particularly for this flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit rough."

Pros: "Upgraded to business"

Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"

Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."

Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."

Pros: "The crew was polite, caring and friendly towards passengers. I had a pleasant time during the long flight. The food options were good."
Cons: "Cup noodles were not really a good snack idea given the fact that we were sitting in a closed environment. The smell was too much for such a long flight..."

Pros: "I was told there would be WiFi on the plane from Chicago to Hong Kong. There was not. Very disappointed. It was hot and not a lot of air circulation. And the seats are hard."

Pros: "Decent crew"
Cons: "Bad food"

Cons: "There was no entertainment system built into the seat back"

Pros: "Seat unconfortable no legroom ."

Cons: "Row seat is tight"

Pros: "The Attendants were excellent"
Cons: "I am a big man and found the seats a bit tight"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Broke my luggage"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "crew great, food very good"
Cons: "flight also late taking off"

Pros: "Liked the food and everything else"
Cons: "Total flight time was more . It was extra to go to Hing Kong from India . Normal flight time to Toronto from India is 16 hours in other flights . Does not seem like a good idea to waste 4 hours more when you come to Toronto from India by Cathay Pacific . I wish I was in some other flight to save time . The route of he flight was long"

Cons: "Our laugage is delay, service is worse than we never see."

Pros: "Great seat. Flew from Hong Kong to Manchester and had a good 7 hour sleep. Food, especially breakfast was amazing with a dim sum selection. Crew was fantastic as always."
Cons: "Dinner however was a little lackluster with a prawn and crab meat stir fry which was a little bland."

Pros: "The check in staff were only doing their job, by insisting that I had an onward ticket before they checked me in, as per Thai immigration ruling. Otherwise, if I did not have an onward ticket, they stated they could not check me in, and would refund my ticket. The problem is there are many ways of travelling out of Thailand, and I frequently visit Cambodia and Thailand via bus. How could I produce a bus ticket which I usually buy only a week before departure?"
Cons: "That was a bit of a rude shock, as I had never encountered such obstacles before, and most fortunately I did indeed have a reservation for a BKK-GVA ticket, or I would have been refused boarding. Apparently the Thai immigration authorities have a condition for Swiss citizens to possess an onward ticket before they can enter Thailand, but this is the first time an airline has applied this as strictly, and has been as insistent, as Cathay Pacific. I have been in & out of BKK hundreds of times, and this is the first time ever an airline has applied this rule to the letter. So, bottom line, never again will I fly Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Cons: "Food was good but could be better. Healthier, purer"

Pros: "Good collection of entertainment options"
Cons: "Biggest gripe: No onboard wifi. As a business traveller, this is important to me."

Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."

Pros: "Food, games attendants were helpful"

Pros: "The service was amazing & the attendants were so attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, whatsoever."

Pros: "The stewards worked very hard, the pilots did a good job. The food was good too."
Cons: "I think it's cruel that this company (Cathay Pacific) has bragged about these economy seats being comfortable. They are not !!! My back hurt and my knees were killing me because they have you crammed right up to the seats in front you so you feel like you are packed in a sardine can! And you will be in big trouble if you take a window seat and you need to go to the bathroom because then you must be a contortionist to get out of that seat when in flight and everyone has their seat reclined, just horrible!!!"

Pros: "crew members are friendly"

Cons: "Seats not comfortable Not great selection of western movies"

Pros: "Good communication about departure delay, check in was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I had to ask crew repeatedly for a simple snack, meals were very slow to arrive, entertainment system we'd glitchy, food was just ok."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable enough though they felt dated and had less space between the seats thank Air New Zealand."
Cons: "The service was quite frankly bad. We felt as if we were in a forgotten zone between two curtains sandwiched between business and economy. There was no dedicated staff for premium economy and this may have been part of the problem. There were only six passengers in Premium economy yet at meal time our choice wasn't available. We were offered meals from economy as an option. Getting any service meant having to use the call button because the staff rarely popped in to see if we needed anything. I've never used the call button so often in one flight. Friendliness came across as a forced response to our queries and at times even that wasn't masked so well. Drinks were served in plastic cups instead of real glass (like Air NZ) and filled nearly to the top...practically a tumbler of wine. Not very classy. We were forced to use the economy toilets instead of the business ones (like Air NZ). Overall we felt that Premium Economy on Cathay was economy with a wider seat with the exception that the services was worse than our economy trips with Cathay. This was a huge disappointment especially when compared with the first leg of our trip with Air NZ which was outstanding. We are not keen to fly Cathay again but unfortunately we'll have to on the way home."

Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."

Cons: "It was at a good pace"

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."

Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing, keep at it"

Cons: "Overall: pretty good."

Pros: "Food were bad. Out of air condition"

Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"

Pros: "Good landing, great service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."

Cons: "Old plane"

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"

Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"

Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"

Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."

Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."

Cons: "In flight staff were rude and had poor attitudes. Very unexpected!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

Pros: "Courteous staff, boarding process was okay once it got started."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Very turbulent flight. Tight seats."

Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"

Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"

Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Pros: "Good seats."

Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"

Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("

Cons: "See above description"

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"

Pros: "Free rebooking"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."

Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Very poor job . I had bad experiences."

Pros: "Excellent service . Good customer service"

Cons: "Everything perfect although 757 planes seemed tired. Istanbul TA airport lounge is second only to Emerites."

Cons: "Squawking brats the whole 10.5 hours of the trip to IAD."

Cons: "Every thing was good"

Pros: "My seat didnt recline so i wasnt feeling comfortable"

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Check-in counter: clerk was “mute”, no greeting, no words about the gate, luggage destination, passport paper. Poor communication: 90 minutes delay, but no announcements Inconsiderate: when the “business class bathroom” located between business and economy classes, was unoccupied, the fly attend Commanded not to use after standing there for 10 minutes. No tea or coffee with breakfast Gate has no information: no destination, no time indicated"

Pros: "Didn't need blankets in plane, warm temperatures all the time. On time landing"
Cons: "little delay in departure"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "It was warm on plane"

Pros: "Good Timing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attentiveness"

Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "the last leg, Istanbul to DC was completely full. i was seating at the back (33K). after the meal, i wanted to recline and the man behind me started yelling as he has water on his table. i apologized and asked if i can recline the seat and he yelled again and said i cannot recline my seat. i talked to the flight attendant and she wanted to move me to a middle seat. i declined and eventually the man said i can recline my seat. but i mean, seriously, i got yelled at for trying to recline my seat and got no apologies from anyone."

Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"

Cons: "Late arrival from Cairo & last minute gate change added to confusion of time zone changes - was supposed to be 2&1/4 hour layover but I just made last call for DC departure."

Pros: "As always Turkish Airlines has exceptional service"

Pros: "І was a passenger with your wonderful Airlines from IST to IAD last week Nov 3rd 2017 and because of misunderstanding and conflict with captain my flight was canceled by him. І don’t remember his name correctly but it was five letters and both vowels (2,4) were “E”. Could you please to let him know that І would like to apologize for my behavior and assure him that it was nothing against him but more about hormonal issues which І believe every woman has more or less during the pregnancy. It is a really big issue for me and my body now. Once again, І do apologize for my actions and that conflict. І didn’t mean it."

Pros: "I was seated next to Hans (or maybe it was Franz, never did find out his name) the Bulgarian weightlifter. He was charming and funny and lovely to look at. You know, when I could out of the side of my eye without being TOO obvious... : )"
Cons: "That I never found out Hans' name."

Cons: "See volume issue from earlier."

Pros: "The team"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."

Cons: "The transfer at Istanbul airport was somewhat chaotic and disorganized."

Pros: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and welcoming"

Pros: "Very friendly airline, on time always, good in-flight entertainment¿"

Cons: "I was disappointed that the airline proactively cancelled the flight I booked and then refused to rebook me onto another airline and failed to offer me a return home within 24 hours of the flight I'd originally booked. Then, when trying to resolve the situation, the airline repeatedly gave me the runaround, directing me to talk to various people in person, and on the phone, before finally making clear that they wouldn't rebook me. Why waste my time and give me false hope if they weren't going to do it?"

Cons: "The food wasnt good"

Pros: "Everything except the chair was uncomfortable"

Pros: "They were out of the chicken in meal even before they got to a quarter of people. They did neither had an option of vegetarian diet. So basically you cannot eat anything but the sandwiches if you don't eat beef."

Cons: "Turkish airlines do not care at all about passengers from other countries (other that western Europe and USA) - my flight was cancelled but the airline reps did not bother to tell 150 plus passengers until the end... passengers got angry and one rep took us to the hotel desk, confusing with boarding passes and passport control on the way - forcing us to waster 3-4 hours; we were provided hotel accomodation at midnight (flight was supposed to take off at 9 pm - maybe they were avoiding to spend on out meals???"

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines because the service and care is exceptional !"

Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Crew were very curteous"
Cons: "Food was not great. I expect, and have previously experienced much better food quality and taste from Turkish Airline"

Pros: "So many movie choices and great food, wasn't hungry once!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."

Pros: "outstanding flight assistances, excellent food."

Pros: "Again, service was awesome business class cabin temperature should be lowered as it was hot."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "From the first person I met (the man who printed my boarding pass at the counter) to the crew on board each flight, I was very impressed with the people at Turkish Airlines :) Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and made my trip enjoyable."

Pros: "Loved all around."
Cons: "I loved it."

Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"

Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."

Pros: "I do not like anything"
Cons: "They serve Turkish delight half of them get half not including me When I ask he told me you are sleeping .the time they serve she was air hostess how he can told I was sleeping point to be noted. Same thing they serve pouches I do not get.i will never fly this air line SOHAIL"

Pros: "The dinner was good but they ran out of chicken immediately so there was only beef. Meal service is very slow and it takes them on average an hour to take the trays away. The lemonade is very good"
Cons: "No leg room. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "No problems"

Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Not comfortable"

Pros: "When they did speak clear English they shouted at passengers to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "Counter people at Turkish airlines in Istanbul told us to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
