Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."

Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."

Cons: "They did not honor my seat reservation they moved me from row 21 to the last row without any good explanation what is the freaking use of buying a tickiet early and reserving ur seat early when they move u anyway"

Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best in middle East"

Pros: "طيران ممتاز"

Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."
Cons: "Dnt have anything to say what I dnt like. Everything is great."

Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

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

Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."

Pros: "Not crowded plane. Some fantastic flight attendants. Very helpful and dedicated to make customers happy and help us enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seating. A couple of not so friendly flight attendants. Crew on the ground in Doha not very attentive or cooperative"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."

Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."

Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."

Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."

Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."

Cons: "Canceled flight without warning. Terrible crew coordination to help with the issue. Not flying Turkish again."

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."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment, nice food"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not friendly, and were resistant for any special requests"

Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very comfortable seats & clean"
Cons: "Not applicable."

Cons: "No flat bed in business class. Flight delayed and 1 hour 10 minutes late; my bag did not make the connection in Istanbul. My bad is due to be delivered tonight."

Pros: "It was clean nd better food that United."
Cons: "Stupid policy about carry on luggage (8KG or less) made my life horrible. Stupid rule—no Turkish for me, my laptop and my “heavy” camera."

Cons: "Delay flight from istanbul."

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Pros: "Everything- Most enjoyable international flight ever"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding and arrival was on time."
Cons: "Crew unprofessional, gave my vegan sister a chicken sandwich, forgot to serve some guests, they were unpolite and inpatient."

Pros: "The Turkish Airlines flight attendants are some of the sweetest people you can meet. Good souls and extremely dedicated to customer service."
Cons: "First, the Boeing Executives need to be punished by having to fly in the Economy section of their airplanes. Second, Turkish Airlines (a wonderful company) must impose hygiene requirements for their passengers. I sat next to a man that had insane body odor and when I let the Flight Attendant know she kindly reseated me... It was great until I saw the poor woman who took my place ALSO asked to be reseated due to the man's smell! Unfortunately, I was reseated in the middle of the row, which apparently is by Boeing design, none of the middle seats recline. Who makes an aircraft that handles long (13 hour) hauls with seats that do not recline and are too narrow for the average adult? It was such a painful and uncomfortable 13 hour flight. To add insult to injury, the plane was delayed and I missed my connection and had to sit in Istanbul airport for almost 8 hours."

Cons: "Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight."

Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections."

Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"

Pros: "they treat you as person and help with every thing. the food"

Cons: "collecting the food trays long after you finished eating is annoying. Tray keeps sliding at you."

Pros: "The luggage limit,the food was excellent!!"

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Pros: "Best Movies and easy to go everywhere. Food voucher was available in case you have flight later than 6 hours."

Pros: "No viajamos, nos cambiaron a Iberia al otro dia"
Cons: "No viajamos"

Cons: "Headphones did not work for first half of flight. flight attendant was unconcerned. Very little legroom"

Pros: "Our flight attendant were very nice, efficient, and on top of everything."
Cons: "it was such a good experience. I liked everything"

Pros: "I loved the trip! Everything was wander full!"

Pros: "I liked everthing , and anything."
Cons: "LAX to IST. too many Arabs and pucking Muslims, Please teach them how to behave, bustards, Otherwise I love to guys and girls, Numero uno airline forever, minus hard core Muslims, we do not need them on the board."

Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Cons: "Nothing."

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

Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Would not refund my ticket or make changes. Turkey is full of terrorism and all Americans have been evacuated from this country and the airline would not refund me. They kept my money and robbed me."

Pros: "Could put a bag under the seat. Advanced AV options. Food was OK."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot. I complained and they adjusted it. The seat really doesn't go back much at all."

Pros: "The staff was excellent - wonderful service except the people who let some dog owners on board without bothering to check that they were in their soft cases and not smelling up the plane and walking in the aisles when food was served."
Cons: "I wish the seats were just a little more accommodating of a normal sized behind! Hard to squish for 10+ hours."

Pros: "THE FLIGHT ITSELF WAS GREAT. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COMFORTABLE FOR A 12 1/2 HR. FLIGHT. MY WALLET FELL OUT OF JACKET AND WENT UNDER SEAT, AND THE MAN BEHIND ME HAD TO HAVE TAKEN $400.00 FROM MY WALLET BEFORE I NOTICED IT WAS MISSING...AND ONLY GAVE WALLET BACK WHEN CONFRONTED LEAVING PLANE."
Cons: "FELLOW PASSENGERS WERE NOT THE BEST. CREW WAS EXCELLENT."

Cons: "It was unbearably hot on the plane. I was wearing shorts and a tank top and was sweating."

Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Every thing, the etertainment on the over the Atlantic is exceptional great with many good and new movies. The flight map is very informative. The food very good and the free offer of drinks and sandwiches is great service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They took 4 days to reach my destination and my last destination they could not provide me with a seat so I had to buy it from my own pocket . The luggage came after 5 days with it missing 12 pounds of stuff. Never go on this airline. They don't care about customers especially in istambul and Mumbai. I think I should get full refund for this flight."

Pros: "I like the flight and the crew on board . The airplane was comfortable and the entertainment on the plane was great."
Cons: "I didn't like all the miscommunication at the airport due to cancelled flights. I spent two days in atlanta as well as three days in the istanbul airport. Out of two weeks of vacation I ended up spender at least six of them b in the airport. Istanbul was total chaos. I understand that the weather was a major factor but the Turkish employees should be better trained in how to handle such crisis and be able to better direct people were to go. Having to pay out of pocket m ok Neyland for food at the airport was ridiculous."

Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"

Pros: "On time, good service, good amenities (earbuds, hot towels, pillows/blankets, comfort kit with sleepers, eye covers, ear plugs. Kids got special treatment with additional toys, cocoa and more."
Cons: "Isle seats after rows 47 start to be positioned with an angle to accommodate for the plane's narrowing structure. The result is much less leg space which is insufficient for 6'+ tall people."

Pros: "I love how there is wifi on the long flights,great movies,food taste so good and the crew is so nice and helpful. I've tried Turkish Airline few years ago and since then I haven't changed my airline and I book with them to all my family :)"
Cons: "I always fly with my dog and he goes with me down by my feet so this could always be uncomfortable cause it's tight and not much place so I wish they give a little better seat for people who travel with their pets on board."

Pros: "The whole experience was ruined by the missed flights on both sides of the trip. My flight from IST to KHI was missed because my lay-over was only one hour, and my flight from IAD left hour and half late. I had to spend extra 6 hours on IST airport"

Pros: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."

Pros: "Included meal and entertainment"
Cons: "AC only on for takeoff and landing. Not much water so became very dehydrated and overly warm."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was awesome, Wide selection of movies to keep occupied."
Cons: "Food was okay but can be improved, needs to have more variety and more local touch in the cuisine offered."

Pros: "My suitcase was delayed, but I'd like to notice and appreciate efforts taken by Turkish airlines rep. at MIA to get it found and delivered in a timely manner. She also followed up asking if everything is fine with it. Thank you, guys!"
Cons: "Rude young lady security officer in Istanbul airport, who forced me to start my laptop working like it's forbidden item to carry on. She talked with intonation like I did something wrong and she is thereto discover it. I believe better workplace for her would be to supervise some prisoners, not welcoming guests at international airports. All other officers (including other security control ones) were looking overwhelmed by work flow, but still polite and friendly."

Cons: "I can't find my baggage.."

Pros: "It got me from point A to point B safely; it was a short flight. The overall price of my flights couldn't be beat."
