Pros: "on time"

Cons: "none"

Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Very slow boarding process in Itami"

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."

Cons: "I don’t know yet."

Pros: "Boarding process was all over the place. No one listened to the instructions the crew gave them. No special meal as requested as a friend of mine is vegan and allergic to several items so luckily she brought her own food on board. Crew was ok, nothing special."
Cons: "The in flight movies/tv was not working. The customs situation is crazy. I appreciate the thoroughness but at points it was overboard. Constant scanning of ticket from the security "TSA" to just scanning your bags 2 feet later."

Cons: "Need to improve the food qyality"

Cons: "Let me change my ticket due to a death in the family."

Pros: "ㅇ"
Cons: "ㅇ"

Pros: "crew was amazing and movie selection was good"
Cons: "poor business class seats and small screens"

Pros: "Same as the first flight. Korean flight attendants were very courteous and helpful. Foods ok. We couldn’t afford first or prestige class so we have to trade in our comfort in economy."
Cons: "Flight wasn’t as long but if you add up the lay over time, it end up being long."

Cons: "Toilet floors were dirty and wet."

Cons: "a lot of engine noise so i could not sleep"

Pros: "My husband, my baby(14 months) and I took the flight from Hanoi to New York which was transferred in Korea. The flight from Hanoi to Korea got delayed so we have to fly with Asian Anna instead. The checking took so long and confusing. We barely made the flight from Hanoi to Korea and ran from different terminals to catch the flight from Korea to New York. We paid extra to select seat to sit to gether but then we found out it was just a joke to get money from Justfly since Korean Air said they only arranged seat at check in which we couldn’t check in as early as we wished due to the delay. And from Korea to New York, they lost our 4 luggages. How horrible could that be ? We are thinking about suing justly."

Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."

Pros: "The general service was amazing. The flights were all super clean, well stocked (they still provided headphones, pillows, and blankets) and nice newer planes. The crew was great as well, their English was pretty good and I never had any issues."
Cons: "My original seat assignments were not found so I lost my window seat on one flight."

Pros: "Great customer service. Smooth flight. Friendly and helpful stewardesses despite the language barrier ( I don't speak Korean)."
Cons: "Really no complaints. It was just a super long flight and it was too uncomfortable to sleep."

Pros: "Great service, good meals and frequent beverages at no charge. From the paper slippers to the warm wash clothes that were passed around at one point, I’ve never been better taken care of on a plane. Passengers comfort was taken into high consideration."

Pros: "The food was very delicious on this trip. I had the seafood dish. Very tasty."
Cons: "The movie selection wasn't that good. I was hoping to see the latest Star Wars movie."

Pros: "Food."

Cons: "Our flight got delayed 4 times and we moved gates 3 times. The communication on which gate we needed to go to wasnt good. We almost missed it cause we didint catch the last swit"

Cons: "Horrible delayed and no food offer or available even to purchase!"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The service is great. The food good. The seats are standard sleeper seats, so also good."
Cons: "the wine selection was not so good. They could do much better with the wine. It’s not the cost it’s the selection. For the same price range they could have better tasting wine."

Pros: "쾌적하고 승무원 서비스는 좋음"
Cons: "식사가 맛과질이 떨어진다 정성이없이.."

Pros: "Korean Air staff was great. I fly Korean when flight prices are reasonable. Stsff helped me as I need assistance as a disabled passenger. Plan to fly again to BKK and back next summer and will fly KA again if price is competitive."
Cons: "Flight to BKK was on 747s my favorite plane."

Pros: "The in-flight experience is just fine."
Cons: "It was painful and required multiple phone calls to get a seat assigned. I kept being fobbed off until later... "you can pick your seat when you check in 48 hours before". "You can't check in now because it's a US flight, so it's only 24 hours". "You can't check in now because of visa documents something you have to check in at the airport". None of this was written down, or even satisfactorily explained when I tried to understand what was going on. Next time I'll fly Asiana on the hope they have a better online seat selection system that doesn't involve bizarre US checkin policy."

Pros: "Comfortable, easy, great service."

Pros: "Flight crews are friendly."
Cons: "A lot of walking to reach your connecting flight. My mom was on the wheelchair and they have to push her instead of riding on the cart they uses for the passengers needing assistance."

Pros: "Had a fantastic time, it exceeded my expectations."

Pros: "flight out WAS excellent, boarding was quick, attendants were extremely courteous, seats were clean and comfortable, as can be expected, food was disappointing, only because i heard it was very good, entertainment was great, and free. rated flight home GOOD because the attendants seems hurried, all else equal."
Cons: "food was disappointing but better than most american airlines"

Pros: "In flight map display, food, power outlets, seat size/space, good movie choices"

Cons: "I would have appreciated more movie options and TV show options on the entertainment monitor."

Cons: "Flight delayed 6h Terrible"

Pros: "Great leg room and wonderful flight staff. Coffee was excellent."
Cons: "Movie selection too limited and the same movies were offered on the return flight. The smell of sesame oil was a bit overpowering on the flight due to food choices offered. Additionally, an American/European style breakfast option would have been nice. We were offered two meals on our 14 hour overnight flight and both consisted of what we would consider to be dinner or lunch options."

Pros: "The Crew was just wonderful.Food was excellent, plentiful & well presented. Aircrafts were clean And stocked. I had not flown this airline before but would defitely choose them again"
Cons: "JFK airport is hard to navigate & passengers in transit have to go thru security lines again & this gets frustrating."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very courteous and attentive. There was a passenger on my flight who appeared to pass out and I was able to observe the care the cabin crew provided him. They acted very professional while the person appeared to be in and out of consciousness. The person eventually became better, but it is always good to see a well prepared crew deal with an issue. Also I am happy they had the bim bim bop on this flight. I didn't have it on the flight I had from Riyadh to Seoul that I took to get out there."
Cons: "The movie selection of Hollywood hits could have been a bit more robust, but it was more that fine."

Pros: "Outstanding flight assistants."
Cons: "Chairs are quite hard and the movies selection limited."

Pros: "There was loads of entertainment during flight , food was great and crew was friendly."

Pros: "Power outlet under economy seats"

Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "Too tight beside neighboring seats"

Pros: "First class service even n economy."

Pros: "service, food and great staff"
Cons: "people flying in coach but expects first class service . constantly asking flight crew for things . apart from those passengers , flight is always great with KA"

Pros: "I make the trip to the Philippines a few times a year and usually on delta. I tried Korean this time and was pleasantly relieved to find they offer a equal or better experience for less money in many cases"
Cons: "Nothing that wouldn't be the case in most airlines given the same situation. Only issue I have is short time change in flight but less than 30 minutes did not affect me and likely anyone else either"

Pros: "GOOD SERVICE."

Pros: "Everything!"

Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Let's start with the overrated leg space and seating comfort. It was cramped as with any other regular airline. Seats in the economy section are not comfortable and have no back support. These seats should have better cushions and back support. Our flight attendant had a bad attitude after we asked for wine and didn't offered us any beverages for at least two occasions. No warm towel either. She just skipped us like we were not there. The meals are just ok. Nothing remarkable. Then we stand in line for almost two hours after a 14.5 hours flight to get through immigration. The overall experience was not good at all and for that price the comfort and service should be much better."

Cons: "Food options were very similar. And the pre-made meals are hit or miss"

Pros: "Crew is amazing and very courteous. The seats were very comfy and food was awesome. Thanks."

Pros: "The cre was really nice and very attentive."
Cons: "The flight left the gate an hour late without giving us any explanation, I missed my connecting flight. The airline did offer a hotel to stay in, but no other apology or explanation was given to about 15 of us who missed a connecting flight."

Pros: "Wifi !!!!"
Cons: "Bigger seats"

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Pros: "Great food, great seats, everything was smooth overall"

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."

Cons: "Seats for its along way"

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. The seat was as comfortable as it could be for economy."
Cons: "No complains. Qatar has always been my preferred airline."

Pros: "Convince, as this is good direct flight from Nagpur."
Cons: "Improve quality of crew and service from Doha to Nagpur sector."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nice airplane, great crew."
Cons: "Beef stroganoff was terrible"

Cons: "Ok"

Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"

Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful. I didn't have any special requests, but I noticed them being extremely helpful to other passengers. Much better than US based airlines, as most others are."
Cons: "Extra security going to USA is a nuisance. Food was ok, not as good as previous trips. Lamb was only selection left when they got to my seat. Not my favorite also very fatty."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "No entertainment available. A very old plane."

Pros: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "In my departure flight, there were many empty seats and the crew let us move to another seat to lay down and sleep. Also the food was very good and there was a great selection of movies."

Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."

Pros: "Good service but need to improve food quality and quantity."

Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight delays"
Cons: "Flight delays"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."

Pros: "Staff is always friendly and helpful, easy to communicate with Great movie options The 13.5 hr plane had very few passengers so I was given an entire row of 3 seats to myself Food is generally good -- Haagen-Dazs ice cream was a plus!"
Cons: "Second flight boarded an hour late, though it was never listed as delayed (a bit confusing) 4 hour plane had very little leg space"

Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."

Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."

Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."

Pros: "Customer service was super! Entertainment package was nice, many current movies worth watching ."
Cons: "No Wifi on flight !!"

Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"

Pros: "The service during the flight was excellent, workers showed all kind of concern and care. Thank you."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food was really bad might as well have junk food."

Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."

Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."

Pros: "Very comfortable, great staff, entertainment options were huge! New aircrafts with comfort in mind."

Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"

Cons: "Seats very cramped, food was horrible glad I brought my own, passenger lights didn't work on whole row on a 13 hr flight. The tv on both flight cut out during middle of movie"

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."

Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."

Pros: "Aircraft was new and good."
Cons: "Non Vegetarian meal was over by the time the service reached me."

Cons: "My credit card was processed and I dint receive my e-ticket. i couldn't travel and my money is taken out of my card."

Pros: "Food and beverage"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "food"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and I almost missed my connecting flight to Oslo."

Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."

Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."

Cons: "A little tight on time between transfers."

Cons: "It was perfect"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and did their jobs well"
Cons: "What could be more fun than being jammed into coach class? It would be the high point of anyone's day. But, it was just a 2 hour flight and I had a good book."

Pros: "I liked that the tray table in Economy had a mobile phone holder"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest and thinnest I think I have ever sat in."

Pros: "Comfortable seat with good recline and leg room. Noise cancellation head phones are effective and comfortable. Good selection of audio and video entertainment."

Cons: "The sound at my seat didn’t work so I had a a 14 hour flight with no soundtrack. I watched one Japanese movie with subtitles and then gave up"

Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."

Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."

Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."

Pros: "The staff being very attentive & prompt , great service"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable for a long haul flights"

Cons: "Too salty for the meal"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and effective. The flight was on time. The seat was comfortable in economy"
Cons: "Food was average. I wish the snacks could incorporate some Hong Kong specialities."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"

Cons: "It was a long delay, about an hour. The airline kept silence until too late. They gave us a blanket, some refreshments and where to have breakfast. Those who made a fuss were taken to hotel. Many others stayed at the airport and had a terrible night."

Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"

Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"

Pros: "very accommodating, I don,t know that hand carry bags changed to smaller size now, they helped me checked it in for free. I travel to the Phillippines every year ,I will fly w/ Cathay Pacific from now on. THANK YOU"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific was amazing. Great service and great food."

Cons: "Amazing"

Pros: "Crew is polite and always willing to serve. Cathay always boards quickly and is always on schedule."
Cons: "I just don't care much for airline food .....I'm 6-4 so I'm never comfortable on long flights. There needs to be more popular movie selections."

Cons: "Seat didn't recline"

Cons: "Everything was good except for the meal part. I was seated at the last and by the time I had my turn to choose from the menu, I was left with just one choice because all the passengers ahead of me got to choose first. Would be great if Cathay would accommodate extra meals on their flights."

Cons: "Terriable service"

Cons: "Terriable service"

Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"

Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."

Pros: "The flight left in HK without 7 passengers included me. Customer service was very bad in HK."

Cons: "The headphones did not work."

Pros: "Our connecting flight was running late due to weather and Cathay pacific airlines were waiting for us at security to take us to the airplane that was waiting ! Wow ! Amazing service!!! So grateful for their amazing kindness !!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."

Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"

Cons: "Its was bad service. I know its covid but they could have done better. My friends relative took emirates and qatar. There flight was excellent as usal."

Pros: "After we missed our flight, we were provided with terrible customer service."
Cons: "We were told to go to the wrong gate. After we missed our flight, we were charged 880 USD to book for the identical flight the following day. We were taken around in circles inside the airport. Absolutely unacceptable. Would not recommend."

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"

Pros: "We arrived in Athens eventually"
Cons: "People were made to wait outside in the cold airport bus for half an hour. The ground crew gave no explanation for the delay. After heavy protests, they let the waiting passengers back into the terminal. Supposedly the pilot was sick, but there was no communication at all from the airline about the cause of the delay or how long it would last."

Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Bathrooms were already dirty upon boarding"

Cons: "I attempted to cancel this flight and arrange to use the same route within a year, but when Oct 3 came, nothing had been done. I called as I had before to Justfly and was then told that I had to use the ticket by the date I purchased it (3/26) . I should have just done nothing as when I cancelled the ticket, it cost me another $100l. I will not use Justfly again. I am out more than $1000."

Cons: "Delay of 1 hour, waited on the plain extra hour."

Pros: "Entertainment and food was decent."
Cons: "Delayed and baggage claim took over 45mins."

Cons: "The ONLY thing I hate about Turkish Airlines is the necessity to go through security in Istanbul when you're in transit on an international flight. Not only do you have to go through security again - with the serious chance of missing a connection - but if it's a flight to the USA, there is serious additional security at the gate. Surely this is enough."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats. You are real greedy."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing in particular. It was kind of the worst flight ever. The crew seemed inexperienced to manage a passenger that looked to be disturbed emotionally and mentally."
Cons: "They kept moving the passenger to the back o free plane where I was sitting and I was so scared."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, oldish plane, depressing colour combinations in the plane. Plane lavatory was dirty"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I didn’t eat or used entertainment so no opinion on that"

Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed from budapest to Istanbul, causing us to miss our connecting flight to San Francisco. The staff was rude and unhelpful in finding a way home, ultimately sending us to New York City for an overnight layover without hotel accommodations. We had to sleep at the airport for a morning flight to San Francisco, causing us to miss work. This was the worst travel experience of my life."

Cons: "I wish there would be more leg space. Had to use all my power to get the seat to recline. And the movie options were very less and harldy any light and entertaining movies were avilable."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional. The food was good. Entertainment was good. The 10hr flight was over so quickly."
Cons: "They didn't come to pick up trash very often."

Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half! And killed my connection, so an uncompensated extra seven hours in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "On both flights: -Friendly crew -Flights left and arrived on time -Clean cabin"
Cons: "On both flights: -Cabin was a little too warm, don't like that you can't control temperature at your seat -Only 3 rounds of beverages were served for a 9.5 and 10.5 hour flights- that is less than one drink per every 3 hours and I was very thirsty. It is annoying to have to get up to ask for additional beverages. - Good was ok overall, but better on Istanbul to Boston than Boston to Istanbul"

Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."

Cons: "The service was very professional."

Pros: "The crew was kind and the food was good, the birding process was quick and easy."
Cons: "I had to ask 5 times in 15 min. for a blanket before anyone paied me attention. It takes way too long to have your food tray picked up after meals are served. This is important for me as I travel with a small child."

Cons: "Call or sms passengers . Waiting 4 hours and nobody at onboarding counter is not acceptable Plane acilities and meal under any expectations"

Pros: "Great entertainment, headphones, booze and food"

Pros: "Price Point."
Cons: "Staff not very Helpful. Really bad security check for USA travelers. Airport security is really out dated, zero technology, not even a metal detector before the gates. They woke up a 15 month baby 3 times for security check. Who does that."

Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"

Pros: "I definitely recommend Turkish Airlines because of the services offered and customer service."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"

Pros: "The flight crew were exceptionally nice and the food was the best I have had on any airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any explanation and I was worried about making my connection in Istanbul."

Pros: "I liked the movie options and the fact that we were given blankets and pillows."
Cons: "I was told in Vienna that I would be allowed to carry my Kindle onto my flight from Istanbul to the USA. I was not able to and had to wait in a very long line both in Istanbul and in the US. I understand the change in regulations, but it is important that all employees of Turkish airlines are aware of the change. We also waited one hour on the runway in Istanbul. Additionally, there was a small section of the plane which received food roughly an hour later than the rest of the plane. I was on this section, and was uncomfortably hungry by the time I received food."

Cons: "Toward the end of the flight it was very hot. I didn't like that there were no AC controls at your seat"

Cons: "seats in economy far too close together ... nose to back of seat in front of me about 9 inches. when seat back was back."

Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."

Pros: "The service was very good, friendly, courteous."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "Turkish Airways service is very good -- good staff, clean airplane, attentive service"
Cons: "The airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected."

Cons: "Flight was canceled 4. in this year. 17 passangers is not good biznis for TURKISH AIRLINES"

Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to weather conditions in Turkey, a snow storm that caused the Istanbul airport to be closed. I tried to reschedule my flight but was delayed 4 days which meant I was going to miss my work for 3 days."

Cons: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."

Cons: "Terms and conditions of trkish air line of changing date of booking is essentially high and doubled if you are forced to do it twice...the trip cost me more than first class"

Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"

Pros: "DC to Istanbul: Good food and nice flight experience. Helpful staff were always ready to help. Istanbul to DC: clean, maintained aitcraft, nice crew, good food."
Cons: "DC to Istanbul: Broken bathroom lock. Not very clean aisles. Very few English speaking crew. Istanbul to DC: Ran out of second option lunch. This seem to happen frequently. Most of the crew members were strangely not around. This resulted in two overworked crew members and lots of trays sitting on our laps for sometime. I was curios what all the other ones were doing."

Cons: "They switched the gate without telling anyone"

Pros: "Service and food were very good, so happy to be fed and watered even though it was a short flight, really pleasant surprise."
Cons: "The wait to go through security when we got to Rome, but I dont think the airline was the cause of that."

Pros: "Arrived on time even though it was late departing."
Cons: "Crew never informed us why they were late departing. Boarding the airplane was problematic."

Pros: "THE CREW AND THE SPORTS CHANNEL"

Cons: "I missing my bag 10 days and no any details"

Cons: "Did not have as the flight to istanbul was cancelled and moved to alitalia"

Pros: "The crew. Loved them !"

Cons: "food and entertainment package was not at all good. co-passenger drinks heavily and makes me uncomfortable as she was totally unbalance"
