Cons: "more tv channel selections"
Pros: "Two of the three were amazing, the other looked like a miserable person"
Cons: "The tv didn’t activate until half way home!!!"

Cons: "DELAY DELAY DELAY NO TOOM FOR OVERHEAD LUGGAGE"
Pros: "I had a very smooth flight from West Palm Beach to Boston. All of the guests got a beverage and a snack and it was a very calm flight."
Cons: "For some reason, my husband and I weren’t seated next to each other. We were, in fact, seated very far away from each other, but I was able to move us to window seats in different rows, but still we were seated apart."
Pros: "Overall it was greate"
Cons: "The crew members"
Pros: "Nothing. I was not in this flight. It was booked errorenously."
Cons: "Nothing. I was not in this flight. It was booked errorenously."
Pros: "Flight, crew,plane were fine"
Cons: "Jet Blue airport personnel at PBI were extremely rude and unprofessional."
Cons: "Ink stains on the seats, garbage near feet from precious flights, overall pretty disgusting"
Cons: "How could the flight attendants decide not to fly when thry arrived at the airport? Why couldn’t a new crew Be ready to fly home with the pilots ? Yes there was a 4 hour weather delay but the extra Tim was from midnight to 2:15 am and was the difference to us between a bad and horrible night . Ruined our vacation"
Pros: "Even though we had a nonrefundable fare, when due to "Quinn" we couldn't get to our extra-early flight, they put us on the next flight, and actually got us seats together. Nice work!!"
Pros: "Length of flight"
Cons: "The boarding process took nearly and hour - same for unloading. I understand special accommodations - but maybe not for the entourage of family members, friends, and acquaintances. And perhaps the people needing wheelchair assistance should wait until everyone is off the plane instead of going first."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The people on the flight not so much. Barking dogs and screaming babies."
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."

Pros: "Everything was on time..."
Cons: "Baggage was lost and no one seemed to know where it went. But then it turned up in my hotel a few hours later so at least it got worked out."
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Cons: "My overhead light didn’t work. My seat mates tv didn’t work. We were in 13 A & C"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."
Cons: "Couldn't get help at gate ,was told I had 30 minutes to call as I was boarding?Need a call from customer service.561-531-3078.Arthur Moran.flight 1068.to Westchester.7am.10/15/2017."
Cons: "Forty minutes late. Last time I flew them it was four hours"
Pros: "On time. Liked not having to change terminals for connecting flight."
Cons: "At 5:30 am, Jetblue check in personnel in WPB were rude to passengers. Said It was our fault we were in wrong line to check our bags bc we had not read the sign that clearly said if we were pre-checked we should have waited 10 yards to the right. She refused to take our bags in the full sevice line until other passengers deferred and insisted our bags be checked In ahead of them since we had been waiting longer. There were not enough people to staff the bars in the JFK terminal before our flight boarded. Waited 15 minutes for one bartender to return from break. At next bar, in front of gate #16 there was no bartender. After 15 minutes someone appeared, only to take orders and disappear. Finally got a drink at a restaurant, nearby, but they said the drink had to be consumed there, not taken in the plane. No alcohol was offered on the plane between JFK and Burlington. Baggage crew ripped the handle off my Rimowan luggage."
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and arrived on time. The one little tiny pack of peanuts was good."
Cons: "Check in on line is not an option. The system requests your Visa type, a drop down appears with about 4 choices of letters. None made sense. I called Jet Blue and made it up to the level of the Supervisor's Supervisor and she didn't know what it meant either. Four of us booked at the same time and we each sat in separate middle seats. I had a girl in the window seat that coughed all the way to NY"
Pros: "The flight was pretty smooth, the flight attendants were top notch"
Cons: "No WI-FI on the way down or back and the flight home was delayed three times and four hours late leaving Florida if I did not wait it would not have been home for a few days, there were a bunch of missteps along the way it was a bit overwhelming"
Pros: "On time flight, uneventful"
Cons: "Always feel crunched in middle seats because elbow rest has channels that people put arms on"
Delays, grumpy service staff
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "The crew were informative and friendly and attentive. We fly often and the food on this flight was the best we have had in a very long time, and we weren’t even expecting any. Thank you for a great flight Virgin ,"
Cons: "Long walk to the gate but no problem"
Pros: "Limited numbers in the top deck, silence, service and deplaning first."
Cons: "Food has to much of an asian slant."
Pros: "Very short flight (43 minutes) No food, entertainment or beverage service. Staff did not check young children were strapped in prior to take off resulting in a two year old standing on dads lap throughout take off, flight and landing."
Cons: "Lack of importance shown to safety of young children."
Pros: "Food and snacks!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew was phenomenal, especially Daniella. Somehow we wound up with seats right next to the bathroom door, which would have been a pretty uncomfortable situation for a variety of reasons, but the flight wasn't full, and she helped us find a suitable place to sit. Also, my wife and I usually take our tea with honey vs. milk and sugar. Even though honey is usually one of the options for tea, she found a way to accommodate our request. The lunch meals were the best I can remember in a long time on an airline flight. They might have been the best I've ever had. The chicken curry was authentic, flavorful and spicy. Frankly my outbound flight had problems. My luggage got damaged. The transfer experience in Manchester left a LOT to be desired. I wasn't planning to use Virgin Atlantic again, but this flight crew (Daniella especially) redeemed Virgin Atlantic. They were attentive, pleasant, diligent."
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like about this flight was the boarding area. Once you get into that the area, you don't really have access to appetizing food (only vending machines) or even restrooms. That's one thing that could be improved."
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Our ticket was canceled apparently due to an error by the airline. Very unhappy about that. The airline couldn't care less."
Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"
Pros: "the food was very good and they hd a good list of selections of movies."
Cons: "the crew was very dry. they did not seem too happy."
Pros: "Very courteous and professional crews. Clean and comfortable plane. Pilots handled delay and weather superbly. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "Dinner was great but could have used more snacks. Breakfast was ok. Movies were dated but okay."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Pros: "The food and service was excellent. Love it!"
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Virgin gave everyone meal vouchers to use at the airport during the 5 hr. delay. Also, they still offered a meal on the plane."
Cons: "I couldn't get the inflight entertainment to work. I wish they would offer devices to borrow on the plane."
Pros: "Getting off the flight"
Cons: "The seat was excruciatingly uncomfortable. My legs went numb within an hour. It was hot and stuffy in board, the head rest kept slipping down and hurt my neck the legroom was tiny and cramped my knees and feet. The jerks behind me shoved their feet in the seat and I was disturbed every rime they tapped their screen. Mine wasn't working well so I had to repeat pressing my screen the entertainment selection was lame. The food was stodgy undercooked glutinous and bland. The snacks were stale and the tiny drink servings were almost pointless. Clint think I'll fly Virgin australia again"
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "The most miserable 10 hours of my year, so far. Sat in economy. Small seats. Uncomfortable seats. Design of headrest made comfort an impossibility."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew attitudes both excellent"
Cons: "On board seating. Getting far too cramped for long=haul flights"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"
Pros: "New boarding system of putting your hand luggage on ready was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for food and entertainment even though flight over 4 hours."

Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "Never made it on the flight"
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Cons: "Plane was FREEZING!!!"

Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Pros: "food and service was amazing"
Cons: "delay in seattle caused a loss of a whole day of my holiday. VERY UNHAPPY"
Pros: "I liked that we were able to use the go go entertainment from the headrest. Lots of things to choose from to watch"
Cons: "We could of been on time, we had a connection I. Atlanta and had 15 minutes to spare"
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Pros: "It is good to be able to go straight to Paris without connecting."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."

Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"
Cons: "Full flight. We weren’t able to chose our seats and were put in middle seats in different rows."
Cons: "On time and nice media"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "The food and the service"
Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Pros: "On time; safe flight"
Cons: "Service from boarding to landing was impersonal. No headphones etc. Etc."
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"
Pros: "I love how attentive the crew was. Food and beverages we’re always available and I even had the chance to rest."

Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "Time was made in the air and we did not miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "The flight was very late."
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Clean, polite, informed"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"
Pros: "I liked the croissants they gave us."
Cons: "it was a small, older plane, so it wasn't very comfy and had no entertainment options. it was a short trip though, so not a huge deal. we were also stuck on the runway for a long time before it was our turn to take off, which is never fun."
Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"
Flight was delayed by few hours
Cons: "Sometime complicated to buy tickets, its sending you to other websites! It would be nice to buy everything straight from Kayak"
Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"
Cons: "New Istanbul airport requires kilometres to walk and then take a super crowded bus. Insane"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, meals were excellent."
Cons: "More seating space but that won't happen."
Pros: "Food portions and selections were great. We got slippers and eye masks for a ten hour red eye flight."
Cons: "Prices have gone up"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Cons: "I didn’t make the flight to Antayla because the airport customs takes too long, kayak needs to let travelers know they need a visa and passport to travel through IST. Also tight connections are impossible."
Cons: "Food- improve the menu, with veggie pasta, there was chicken on the side. For breakfast only on option- scrambled eggs. Not much for vegetarians. Also my flight Istanbul to mumbai, the table on which you keep the food was not aligned, the food tray kept sliding down."
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I was surprised at the amount of food and drink service. It was nice to have on such a long flight. Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep well which is not easy for me on planes."
Pros: "Every thing. Food travel and crew"
Pros: "Excellent respect of timing : check in , take off and landing and delivery of luggage. Crew professional and quicly available Connecting flight was possible thanks to respect of time. I have tried number of companies I can tell Turkish airline is committed to time and staff are well organised and professional."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable in this kind of plane. As we were doing a connecting flight we were also tired."
Pros: "They allowed me to change my flight for free because I could not get a visa to Turkey. Thanks!"
Pros: "Everything. Pleasant crew, great food, clean plane, many entertainment options, movies, music etc. (individual screens)."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment were above average."

Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Pros: "Food was very good. Free wifi"
Cons: "Check-in and boarding were chaotic and poorly organized. In-flight crew was not very courteous or friendly. Entertainment system was old and didn't function properly. Bathrooms were never cleaned on 9 hour flight."
Pros: "this particular plane had PLENTY of leg room, I could really stretch out and take a nap. Just depends which plane you fly on Turkish. Food is good for plane food."
Cons: "I don't know if English speaking is a requirement for the crew, but it was difficult to ask questions to the crew in English, even simple questions like "Could I see what the cake looks like to choose my snack?" This didn't really interfere too much with the flight"
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Smaller aircraft but better seats, comfortable"
Cons: "The air conditioner stopped working it was in incredibly hot on the aircraft cabin"

Pros: "I liked everything in general . I had the assistance on time from the airport that you asked for me . I was asist from a person to abbord the plane and when I came to Paris and took me to get a taxi"
Pros: "Food is excellent."
Pros: "Kind and professional staff, smooth check-in procedures, comfortable flight."
Cons: "I guess this is not related to the TK airlines itself, but once passengers check in and about to board, there is not toilet, so if you need that facility, you have to go out and through the security screening again."
Cons: "Service is horrible. Airline staff is rude. Airport staff in turkey is eually bad. Avoid this airline and country at all costs."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment were okay."
Cons: "Less than 20 minutes to catch this plane because of delays. The flight was longer than scheduled because of delays on the airline side and US customs limited processing capability. I felt really tired when I got out of LAX."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Lost connecting flight. 1 day stuck in Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "on time, pleasant flight"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."

Pros: "Spaced seats, kind crew"
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Pros: "The stewardess was accommodating, boarding was easy"
Cons: "Made my connection with 5 mins of plane takeoff, My luggage was lost, found the following day."
Pros: "A three hour flight and they gave us a very nice meal and beverage selection. Never happen in the U.S. unless you are flying first class, and even then they wouldn't exceed Turkish Airlines. When did you last have metal eating utensils with your meal..... if you even got a meal. Plus multi channel seat back entertainment on a three hour flight. I wish the U.S. would open domestic markets to foreign carriers."
Cons: "Really tight seats. Almost impossible to eat your meal."
Cons: "Didn't like my 11 year old have to sit 15 hrs with some stranger Turkish airline very nad with outing family together even you reserve in advance still they mess your sits and I seen so many family was making same complaints of family are with same last name don't take rocket science to keep them together and also veryyyyyyyyyy boarding no one in line it's like fish market"

Pros: "Courteous staff, new planes, comfort, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Lights in cabin, some little things like heasphones not working"
Cons: "My food was allready open. And the flight attendant who gave it to me was ride throughout the plane ride. No USB. :("

Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "Crew very efficient and professional"
Cons: "Flew on 747. Sleeping mat would make lie flat “bed” more comfortable. There is very little personal storage space."
Pros: "The crew on-board was nicer this time"
Cons: "Had wait in line for more than 1.5 hours to check in (no self-serve kiosk) and then conform to the 10kg carry-on (both backpack and suitcase) rule which didn't happen on the first flight. The staff are rude and unhelpful and the whole process of dealing with Norwegian is confusing."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Cons: "Food could be improved."

Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Professional, efficient, full, nice sandwich and coffee."
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."

Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."

Pros: "the crew was amazing: friendly and caring"
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"

Cons: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Standard short flight."
Cons: "I have no idea why they would book this flight for a connection to Chicago. They only gave me an hour window for connecting and with the plane delayed 30 minutes I had to rush through and skip everyone in like at passport check and made it just as the were boarding my connection."
Pros: "This is how to run an airline. Ausgezeichnet!"
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"

Pros: "everything was ok ."

Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
