Pros: "no"
Cons: "respect"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."

Pros: "Crew is friendly and polite. The guy at the boarding who made my day after all my nervous story with boarding pass! With his one sentence and sweet behavior the difficult transatlantic trip became more comfortable."
Cons: "In Tbilisi there were problems with boarding pass from Doha to NYC, as they said at desk than I’ll git it in Doha without problems. The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy. It was possible to say that I can got it at the gate too"

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "Crew as very helpful"
Cons: "passenger seated next to are rude"

Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."

Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"

Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Cons: "Internet bad"

Cons: "Did not make this flight. How can I confirm that my ticket is still valid for the return trip?"

Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Pros: "Very good crew"
Cons: "8 hr layover in Doha"

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."

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."

Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"

Pros: "Food was good for once"
Cons: "They said they would fix the sound on my sons t.v. but that never happened so we had to swap seats and one of us didn't have any onboard entertainment although we asked about it 4 times"

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Being able to ear what you want and when you want it made my flight so much more enjoyable. You can ask for anything on the menu and the flight attendants are so attentive."
Cons: "Boarding in Qatar was a bit disorganised."

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "More movies, no wifi, better food"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."

Pros: "Flight attendants are helpful from Doha to New York."
Cons: "Take the bus from the plane to the terminal in Doha. It was a hassle .from Doha to Dhaka was 3hours delayed without a notice."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was friendly and attentive to passengers (I give them 4.5 stars). The seats are comfortable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."

Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "Again, our flight was cancelled without notification!!!!!"

Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "But the next morning I became violently ill and had to be hospitalized. Before we took off Emirates reported they were deciding whether to remove a sick passenger from the plane before taking off, which they ultimately did. I wonder if everyone on the flight got sick."

Pros: "Loved every moment!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "I love business class the best"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"

Cons: "Movie selection terrible."

Cons: "I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane."

Pros: "I was randomly upgraded to business and it was such a treat! The service on Emirates is impeccable and the staff takes care of everything. I have always loved flying on Emirates and this last experience was truly the best flight I've had. The comfort and consideration of Emirates flights are definitely unmatched."

Pros: "The crew was great and helped make it easier with young children - the entertainment for children was also very diverse - despite it being a 14 hour flight!!"
Cons: "The children meal was not wonderful. But as I only had one and two children - they shared an adult and child meal - which was okay."

Pros: "Nice airplane"
Cons: "Snub crews"

Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."

Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"

Pros: "Business class was great! Service was great!"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class because I am a frequent flyer. Everything about this flight was perfect. I give this 10/10"

Pros: "I was amazed to be upgraded to Business class!!! I wonder why. Anyway, the service was amazing, and the staff very friendly and helpful!!! The food was superb."

Pros: "The air hostesses were really sweet and receptive. They cared a lot."
Cons: "Food could be improved on long-haul flights. I was hungry."

Pros: "Food was the best I ever had on Economy, seats were comfortable, enterteriment was very good, cabin crew very polite and attentious..."
Cons: "Boarding was too Long with to much security measures"

Pros: "Entertainment good and crew"
Cons: "Boarding in milan horribly disorganized."

Pros: "The two checked bag allowance is very helpful - especially for someone who travles for projects, for long times and is on a tight budget. The staff were very attentive. Frequent offers fof drinks to stay hydrated was very good. The seats were large enough to be comfortable. The number of entertainment options was exceptional."
Cons: "The air plane was freezing cold - I could not even be comfortable sitting in my seat with a blanket on. The woman next to me had 2 blankets on. I could not check my luggage when I arrived at the airport. I had to sit with my luggage for 3 hours just waiting to check it. So I could not enjoy the 7 hours I had before my flight - to walk around the city, or even shop in the airport. I could not select a seat when I checked in on line - even though it was 20 hours before my flight. Even though I was traveling alone I could only get a middle seat. There were no non-meat food choices for the meal. We could not hear the announcements at boarding - no one knew what was being said."

Pros: "Good but not great."

Pros: "Emirates gets credit for reasonable legroom in economy class and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "Airbus A380 is a huge airplane. So many passengers creates limitations."

Pros: "Check in was smooth, flight was smooth and pleasant. Great food, great entertainment choices, great seat company. Best part was the hotel provided during my layover in the wee hours of the morning. I was able to sleep well and shower and was therefore more relaxed during the ensuing 14 hour flight."

Cons: "Service was bad."

Pros: "Overall very good"

Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."

Pros: "Nicely appointed aircraft. Crew not quite as friendly and professional as on first flight. Snack meal could have been a little more substantial."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and confusing. Projecting boarding section letters on screen monitor might be clearer."

Pros: "Service is excellent and I really enjoyed the musicians while waiting to bord the plane"

Pros: "Spacious, great entertainment selection, crew is very attentive"
Cons: "Not all seats can lean back"

Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."

Pros: "Enough leg room, wide seads"
Cons: "Food was terrible."

Pros: "The cabin crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."

Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Not at all accommodating of dietary restrictions. It was a very long flight to not have any options for food, and crew acted very put out when we asked if there were any other options. Checked our carry on luggage for being "too heavy" in spite of the fact that it was the exact same luggage we carried on for the flight out which meets all necessary size restrictions. Boarding was very disorganized, no announcements were being made, flight attendants were simply holding up signs at chest level which were completely blocked by the crowd."

Pros: "I was surprised to receive a pair of socks, sleeping eye cover and toothbrush/toothpaste. Great courtesy and attention to detail by the flight crew."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, comfortable flight and excellent service."
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Delayed on an already long flight and got home even later"

Pros: "Good food and little amenities that are a nice touch during a long international flight (fresh fruit, hand towels, etc.). Good entertainment selection and nice aircraft with USB ports/easily accessible charging outlets."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed. Crew did very little to manage expectations or let us know why we were so delayed - on top of that, there was no special treatment for being delayed over 2 hours. Crew was polite, but not overly friendly or helpful."

Pros: "The seats were quite spacious and comfortable. The crew was very friendly and helpful. They actually seemed genuinely happy to be of assistance (a rarity, especially on 9 hour flights!)."
Cons: "Boarding was a fair disaster. No structure or communication about lines. Unclear who was boarding and when. Like a slow-moving stampede. The food was actually very yummy. I just prefer fresh food to be included. Like fruit. Didn't use any entertainment."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."

Cons: "Bad experience my mother 73 years old and pre booked wheel chair but not provided in Dubai Air port while transferring time and also misguided us very short distance for walk. she faced lot of trouble to walk ."

Cons: "There were four toddlers across the aisle from us. They never stopped screaming during the entire flight. It made the flight absolutely miserable."

Pros: "Loved the flight crew...very friendly and attentive. Also love the entertainment options."
Cons: "Would love a little more legroom. Paid for high bandwidth wifi...pretty spotty service"

Pros: "Great airplanes. Crew is is helpful and kind."

Pros: "Loved the in-flight entertainment options. The food was excellent. They managed my gluten free options with ease and everything was delicious. The attendants were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I paid for the higher wifi bandwidth, but the service was spotty and some websites/social media wouldn't load. Even some texts wouldn't send. I wish there was more legroom between the seats for such a long flight. But the value for the overseas flight was still quite good."

Pros: "adequate leg space,to stretch and walk around"

Pros: "Good staff"

Pros: "Economy class is very comfortable, crew was pleasant and food was good. Overall the 13 hour flight felt pretty painless."
Cons: "I wish the crew would have done a better job controlling passengers who were trying to unload luggage from the overhead while the plane was still taxiing. I had a bag dropped on me and the crew didn't seem to have control over passengers who were blatantly disregarding instructions."

Pros: "Impecable! Not too many announcements! Absolutely gorgeous plane, great crew, good bathrooms, comfy seats, more room, the plane is so huge you don't feel a take off or landing. Easy pleasant check in process. Thank you!"
Cons: "The food, well I rarely eat on a plane, but some times its a bit better than the others. Vegan options could be good option as i don usually trust meat or fish on a plane! The touch screen doesn't feel the "touch" lots of times"

Pros: "This aircraft was top of the line. Nice size seats, wide aisle, clean bathrooms, great staff, and superior food!"

Pros: "I highly appreciated the kind care of all the staff in the plane; especially the great selection of food. Thank you very much! For a plane it was really 5 * service."
Cons: "the correspondence between the staff. On my way to New York, I was brought to the lounge to wait until my boarding will start but nobody picked me up as promised, so I had to walk the way. I needed a wheel chair as well on my way back, extra ordered it at the check in, they said it is noted in the system. But nobody was there to pick me up. When I finally found someone, I was brought to a place, being asked to sit down and wait where I still had to pass stairs to come to the passport controll. From there noone picked me up, so I had to go my way alone with pain in my leg. I don't want to argue, I managed it even with pain but I wonder what happens with people if they cannot walk anymore at all. My advice would be that you work on to improve this service. We extra booked business class but this service was not worth being called business class."

Pros: "Super"

Cons: "The only kosher foodi is no good must change"

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: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"

Cons: "To whom this may concern: I am writing to express my absolute dissatisfaction and poor experience with the customer service and lack of working amenities on flight #TK11 leaving Istanbul into New York City, JFK. It was sadly a horrible ending to my trip and left me with a very unfortunate impression of Turkish Airlines. Less than an hour into the flight I spoke with a flight attendant making him aware that the USB port was not working so I was unable to charge my phone the entire flight. In addition, the wifi was not working. This is a huge problem because I planned on working remotely that day and my job was under the same presumption. The attendant blamed my phone and did not take my word that I was unable to connect until I insisted further and another passenger in front of me turned to my rescue and agreed with me stating the wifi was spotty and only worked for a short period of time until ultimately shutting off. The attendant did not apologize but said he would check on the port and the wifi and would get back to me. I followed up several times and he fed me the same lines until I grew frustrated that I was being completely ignored all while losing a day's work. During the last 20 minutes of the flight I decided to finally walk to the back of the plane and follow up for the last time with someone else. I explained the situation to the other attendant who seemed as though this was the first time he was hearing about this issue and he spoke to his chief who gave me a customer feedback form to fill out. No one offered me a different window seat to fix the port problem or even Miles Plus points for the inconvenience even though I requested it. I have never felt more disrespected and dismissed on a flight before this experience. As a star alliance member (CX765361), I frequently fly for work and personal trips and out of loyalty and assurance that I would be able to fulfill my work duties remotely given the features this airline promotes. I chose Turkish Airlines because it was apart of this program. This experience did not uphold the company's reputation and by flying with Turkish Airlines I completely missed a full day's work, deadlines and was behind when I physically returned to work. For the inconvenience, stress, disrespect and empty promises, I am requesting that Turkish Airlines reimburse me the portion of that flight. Best, Rachael"

Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."

Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."

Pros: "The crew bumber was short fot the full flight. The food used to be better in THY."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Late baggage"

Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."

Pros: "The crew works very hard to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable. I appreciate it very much. The food service is quite good and the entertainment is excellent. The price is excellent for the service you receive. I agree with other reviews that a tall person will be very uncomfortable with the leg room. I am 5'7' (170 cm) and my knees hit the seat in front of me when the seat was leaned back."

Cons: "Only because the steward was nice I could get a vegetarian meal. The flight needs to be specifically told about vegetarian needs!!"

Pros: "Great food,wine and snacks!"

Pros: "I liked the food on my flights. The seats were comfortable. The movie selection was very good as well. They had a lot of new releases."
Cons: "I noticed that food service on both my Turkish Airline flights for this trip was slow. I feel in general passengers take a longer time to be served and the time it takes the crew to clean up the trays after a meal is even longer. Some the the passengers win my flights were even getting out of their seats to bring their trays to the flight attendant station because they wanted to be more comfortable in their seats. I also noticed they did not come by to collect trash as frequently as other airlines. The entertainment selection was good as far as movies but the music option was very limited and difficult to navigate."

Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."

Pros: "on time performance for flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew not very responsive on requests"

Cons: "Similar issues as described above"

Pros: "The food and service, generally, were all quite good, as I have come to expect from Turkish Airlines. Turkish Airlines remains my preferred airline for all travel."
Cons: "The server handling my section of the aircraft seemed slower and less experienced, but this did not have a significant impact on my experience. The temperature in the cabin seemed to fluctuate quite a bit and my entertainment screen froze and seemed to shut down halfway through the flight."

Pros: "Excellent service!!!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like about it."

Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled twice then delayed. I ended up missing my connection in Istanbul and having to overnight there. Turkish Airlines did provide hotel accommodation to passengers in similar situation, however only after wondering around the airport for over an hour to find the TK hotel desk and waiting for an additional hour to be assigned a hotel room and be transferred there, only to learn that I had to check out within two and a half hours after checking in to be at the airport 4 hours before the flight departs. When I finally arrived at the airport, I had to go through a security screening (because I was not suspicious for having entered the country and exiting only 5 hours later). When all of that was done, I approach the check in desk and asked if my seat can be changed, as I had spent the previous 2 days trying to get on my connecting flight, spending over 8 continuous hours at an airport and having had a nightmare night. I asked for an exit row seat or anything in the front of the plane. I was literal told that if I did not like the seat given I did not have to fly. I took the seat originally assigned and spent 11 and a half hours sitting next to a toilette on the airplane with a crying baby next to me and in front of me. To top it all, it took 2 hours to get my luggage once arrived at JFK. I usually love traveling on Turkish airlines and I understand not all of the above is directly depending on them, but considering how awful the entire experience was and how little I asked to be happy, I found them to be extremely unaccommodating on this occasion."

Pros: "Everything was fine with no change of schedule. Turkish airline is more serious now than before. I had very bad experience three times with them. I was saying that I'm never going to fly with them, but this time I did not have choice so I had to fly with them."
Cons: "The menu is always the same and not very delicious."

Cons: "Had to wait for my luggage for hours in Istanbul. When I asked them they said they have no idea and urged me to ask to the carrier people by myself! They still haven't found my luggage yet."

Pros: "Good movie choices - the entertainment was relevant and current."
Cons: "The comfort was awful. Such little legroom on such a long flight (11 hours) is unconscionable. I am a 5'9 female and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. I can't imagine what it must be like for an even taller person. Terrible!! I will not fly Turkish for long flights ever again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "flight had hours of delays barely anyone speaks or understands English.. Lack of help from everywhere from checking in to boarding to take off won't recommend to anyone."

Cons: "Going through security checks twice and running from one gate to another at the last minute."

Pros: "Entertainment channels were good. No leg room. Food was really bad. Okay 5.2"

Pros: "Good crew attention and communication, good entertainment choices, decent comfort for a 175 cm person"
Cons: "Each flight was a little late (as usual, though, who knows why?)"

Pros: "Service was good. Seats were uncomfortable and hard! Entertainment was excellent!"

Pros: "The food, the stuff for sleeping"
Cons: "The boarding: too much stand by which leads to confusions and anxieties. I personally believed this problem of creating too much stand by could have been prevented in advance."

Pros: "Great movie choices and food"
Cons: "People were screaming because of turbulence and we got zero communication from staff. Terrible on and off boarding. Worst terminal."

Pros: "Business class was great. Comfortable lay flat seat. Tasty food and lots of it. Great entertainment system with endless high quality options."
Cons: "Istanbul airport does not have enough gates to handle their growth in traffic. As a result both my incoming and outgoing flights were embarked by bus from the tarmac. We passed by another 30 planes in the same situation. So it was not a one off."

Cons: "They let passengers on who were not supposed to be on the flight. Consequestnly the flight way massivle delayed as they were trying to sort out the mess with the numbers, wrong passengers. they deboarded one passenger and asked everyone to search their overheaed baggages for foreign things. caused a scare among the passengers but wast fully explained. boarding was very sketchy and felt unsafe, unsecure."

Cons: "No luggage arrived for 60 people or more. On my first flight to Sofia from Istanbul i miss my flight for technical reasons and then from Istanbul to NY no suitcases arrived. Just terrible experience. Never ever again will travel with Turkish Airlines. They suck!!!!"

Pros: "The hospitality"

Pros: "The food plentiful, and the entertainment excellent."
Cons: "Seats so not comfortable. Boarding always takes forever and this flight takes off late, Every time. Sigh."

Cons: "We were asked to board and then sat on the plane for 6 hours while they de-iced the plane, waited for a new pilot, and replaced the food. It made our 11 hour trip close to 17 hours and was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was excellent. Travel necessities bag was lovely and very useful!"
Cons: "Customer Service at the New York airport was rude and not professional. I missed my flight due to the day beforeThanksgiving traffic and the customer service representative did not show any empathy or compassion. She wanted to charge me a full price. I had to beg her to help me and look for other options."

Pros: "the first meal was very good for airline food. The second meal, okra over rice, was a joke. Not even sure why they bothered."

Pros: "Lots of free space on this particular flight to sleep."
Cons: "There were no toiletry offered on this flight."

Pros: "Awesome food. Good choice of alcoholic beverages, great entertainment."
Cons: "One of the worst knee room."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Very cramped leg space"

Pros: "everything about Turkish airlines"
Cons: "nothing at all"

Pros: "Everything service, food, boring, and the staf"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and boarding was easy. Food was as to be expected and agreeable. Nice having complementary wine. The entertainment was varied and good. Having an empty seat next to me made for a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Fellow passengers who didn't tidy up after themselves in the laboratory so laboratory really needed attention by mid flight."

Pros: "The airport information could be a little more helpful and give better direction where the gates are.....it is like a zoo and information and good direction are not easily available."

Pros: "The food, beverages, comfortable seats and movie selections."
Cons: "Arriving to New York City."

Pros: "I got four seats for myself and slept 7H My lucky flight I love that you serve a real meal and that we are able to check in two luggage, I will fly Turkish airline again."
Cons: "Boarding took loooong because of slow security check at the gate"

Pros: "1) Turkish Air's online check-in, seat selection and printing of boarding pass was efficient and effective 2) The standard VEGETARIAN meals (non-vegan) were always fresh, very tatstey and properly warmed (when appropriate) 3) The flight attendants were: > Comfortable speaking with me in English (a native American English speaker). We had no trouble understanding each other. > Always courteous, congenial and helpful in their passenger interactions, including at check-in counter"
Cons: "KAYAK"

Pros: "The was good and air hostess was kind and gentle. ."

Pros: "Appreciated how one of the stewardess handled some really over the top, needy and entitled customers sitting to my left. They were seemingly giving her hell every time she came around for this and that."

Pros: "perfect.... loved the aircraft too ... Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet"

Cons: "Hard to love a flight when they lose your bag."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Checking in is extremely slow , bag check is even slower."

Pros: "Or family of four was all over de place in different rows and seats, the friendly stewardess tried every thing to put us together. did not happened, but she really tried! Real appreciated that."
Cons: "All good, and very smooth for that amount of people. Thank you!"

Pros: "Was upgraded to Premium Economy which was a pleasant surprise. The cabin crew was lovely and the flight was pleasant"

Pros: "The crew was nice in the wake of being delayed for hours."
Cons: "Check in took forever. I wasn't able to check in online and was told "this is the price you pay" when I received word that my wife and I wouldn't be sitting together. Then we went to board far later than we were supposed to. After boarding the plane we sat for easily a half hour not moving with no information. Then find out there is scheduled maintenance which would be another hour. AC was shut off and got hot. Started to deplane but we were in back and didn't make it because they reveresed their decision. Got back on and said we would be leaving shortly. In all we say on the plane over 3 hours prior to take off. Never flying with your company again. Easily the worst experience flying ever."

Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "Fare didn't include one piece of luggage - which I thought it did. And I was in the back row. Not my favorite. Had I known that was the case- I could have flown a discount carrier for a cheaper fare."

Pros: "the crew was awesome!"
Cons: "the loading process was terrible, very crowded and slow"

Pros: "entertainment options were excellent. i was unexpectedly upgraded. my luggage made it through the short connection, which is not what you expect from heathrow."
Cons: "i had a short connection through heathrow and as my incoming plane was delayed. i was told i had to get a boarding pass at heathrow for the next flight because they could not give me one when i first checked in. the line at the transit desk was very long and i ended up asking a security man to let me through and i was sent to another desk that was shorter. if i hadn't have asked and looked stressed i might have missed my flight."

Pros: "meals"
Cons: "No internet"

Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told to go to a separate desk to have a seat assigned. There turned out to be a shortage of seats and I had to wait until boarding closed to find out if I had a seat on the plane. Having paid $1600 for a return flight I find it unacceptable that a seat is not guaranteed. The BA staff were helpful, but your system is ridiculous."

Pros: "There really wasn't much to like for yet another terrible BS flight situation."
Cons: "Late boarding. Taxied out. Held is on runway for 2 hrs and taxied back in. Made us wait in terminal for 3 hours before boarding a seprrste plane. Arrived in nyc 130am instead of 8pm. No apologies from ba. As usual."

Pros: "The space, blanket and the staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor The TV stopped working and didn't work for the whole trip I was moved to another seat The refreshment could be more I don't enjoy pre poured 1/2 cup of juice and water."

Pros: "The complimentary meal was very good and a decent amount of food that satisfied my hunger. Free wine."

Cons: "Old old entertainment systems. My TV wasn't working for the first hour of the flight. Crew had to keep restarting the entire plane's entertainment system in order to finally get mine to switch on. Plane was also very old"

Pros: "Service, efficiency, speed, accuracy, attentiveness."

Pros: "Everything on time. Crew had a smile."
Cons: "USB charger was not working in seat 34f."

Pros: "That I was in shape to run from one terminal to another to catch the flight"
Cons: "The transfer flight was a disaster - see above. We dragged a car seat to the plane and dropped it off before we boarded. Upon landing, there was no car seat to be found. We were told to go to baggage as it would be there. We waited for over an hour for it to come through and it never did. Again no ground staff available to assist. Airport security advised to go BA office. They located the car seat in London. It never made the flight?! We arrived Wed and the car seat wasn't delivered until Friday. Again, no contact from anyone. I received a call from the courier when I was out. Overall, atrocious customer service from BA"

Cons: "The boarding could be more organized. In New York they boarded the first class ok but the others they just told everyone to come up. W it was not done row by row. The breakfast coming back was horrible. Other than that great."

Pros: "The pilot was were courteous, and kept us update every step of the way..the crew was phenomenal."
Cons: "That the ac wasn't working initially"

Cons: "This was the worst trip ever! Delays on both ways!!"

Cons: "Would like more choices for music to listen to."

Cons: "Everyone"

Cons: "Boarding queue should be clearly marked. Seating needs work. It is ok when person in front of you is not reclined but too close if a petson is the least claustrophobic . I was fortunate that seat next to me was vacant, otherwise I would habe been in panic the entire flight."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, moderately intelligible announcements, passable food"
Cons: "In both directions, EDI—>JFK, our plane offered neither wi-fi (paid or free) nor seatback video screens, which is an awful lot of hours with no connection to anything. I didn't realize that any transatlantic airline still ran films on common screens, 1970s-style. Just how old were our planes?"

Cons: "Returning to us and customs......NY airport sucks"

Pros: "Great crew. Super nice and helpful. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Boarding was ok"

Pros: "I like everything ,because the way they treating me and I was feeling very comfortable . Thank you very much ."
Cons: "I coul not say anything that U did not like."

Pros: "2 of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The anarchy boarding process. The lack of plugs on the flight. The 2-year-old lap child in the seat with his Mom next to me that kicked, threw, fussed, hit, cried and more through most of the 8-hour flight because somehow a child that big doesn't need his own seat. The lousy, lousy food. The lack of food. The seats that were so tight I couldn't get up to use the lavatory when the inconsiderate woman in front of me put her seat back (and I'm totally average size). The awful entertainment selection. The worn, dirty plane."

Pros: "It is great that they give every person a blanket and pillow on boarding. Flight was nice and dark. The flanges that pull down on either side of the headrest to lean your head into are genius."
Cons: "Flight was late and announcements were not understandable over the PA. While I understand that seats are made for the "average passenger" and at 5'2" I am on the very low end of that, seat was very uncomfortable with a metal bar higher than the seat cushion poking forward where the cushion met the seatback. The temperature was extremely variable and when my seat mates who did not speak English very well tried to flag a flight attendant down to get an extra blanket, the flight attendants actively ignored them, so I hit my assistance button and my light went on, then after some time it went off again without our being helped so I hit it again about 10 minutes later and my light went on again but was again ignored. Then the attendants started selling things from the flight magazine and looked the other way as they went by my hopeful beacon. When they finally did get to me, I got a curt "I'll see if there is anything I can do" and she went off, returning 5 minutes later with one blanket when there were two people. Later on I saw her give blankets to others, and I found that strange."

Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Easirent The car rental company that I got from kayak Total disaster waste of time did not end up taking the car I got an excellent rate and then they try to rip me off on the Insurance You should not do business with them"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed both departing and arriving for this trip. Poor communication from British Airways."

Pros: "Big airplane 747. O"

Pros: "Hostess friendly and attentive"

Pros: "The flight crew was formal without being stuffy. Gracious without being too familiar. (Although, I had an interesting -- and fun -- conversation with a great flight attendant, Suzanne on flight BA0115 on 5/21/17. Give that gal a raise!). Excellent service. Clean cabins. Lovely menu followed by delicious fare. Overall, great experience!"
Cons: "The aircraft is illogically designed i.e. the awkward arrangement of seats in Business Class makes for an annoying obstacle for passengers who want to leave/return to their seats. But when they do settle in, it's as comfy as a cocoon."

Cons: "The seats are so close together the seats are actually painful. I'm 6 ft tall and my boyfriend is 6 3". A very short lady in front of us leaned all the way back and caused such major discomfort my boyfriend had to push her forward. She then complained even tho she visibly had a lot of space. We requested an upgrade from gate crew and flight crew upon boarding but were told the flight was full even though multiple seats were available. Will not fly British Airways again."

Pros: "Very upscale aircraft, Polite staff and overall nice flight."

Pros: "There was nothing that stood out. It was just as all other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding gate number was given within the last hour before boarding. Travelers need to know ahead of time the gate number especially for an airport as large as Gatwick."

Pros: "I was blocked and was not given permission to choose a sit when checking-in"

Pros: "Great movies, smooth flight, everyone was polite"

Cons: "The entertainment system was not working, the crews members was rude/ did not respond to questions/needs."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant throughout, however, even they referred to this flight being a comedy of errors."
Cons: "BA badly needs to invest in some new stock. 2 hr delayed departure as a tire needed to be changed. Took over 1 hour to get the entertainment system to work after 2 reboots. Leaking air conditioning vent above my seat. Food was mediocre. Snack before arrival is clearly cost saving, sandwiches have been replaced with a biscuit."

Cons: "This flight was fine, but it was a day too late."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The flight didn't exist. Got to the airport and they said there was a glitch and I booked a flight that didnt have a plane. They drove me to Heathrow and got me on another flight 4 hours later. Missed the last bus home and now am stuck in NYC till the morning."

Pros: "Friendly crew, free alcohol (albeit horrible beer), easy boarding and exiting."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, personal lights in the cabin didn't work, entertainment screens were broken and/or bad quality."

Cons: "general boarding en mass.prefer orderly by "zone" boarding"

Cons: "luggage was on another flight - i got my luggage 24 hours later"
