Cons: "service level"
Pros: "The crew is usually really good."
Cons: "The ground staff at Frankfurt airport was not very good. Seemed slow lazy and difficult at times"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Amazing crew, great seating area and tasty menu."
Pros: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "Food, Entertainment."
Cons: "Harder than usually landing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "everything..Singapore airlines is a amazing airline !!! there is a reason why they are no 1 for so many years..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They moved passengers to the Lufthansa but didn’t tell us even though we checked with the counter every 20 min. Apparently a text went out that we didn’t get"
Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Extra leg room, great service and good food."
Cons: "The entertainment system feels dated (no touch screen) manual rewinding of movies, selection of movies"
Pros: "Excellent service, made a very long flight very pleasant and enjoyable."
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Screaming children. Totally clueless, rude flight crew. Next time kids are screaming for three hours straight on a red eye, maybe offer the parents some assistance. Makes the “perks” like hot towels seem ridiculous when staff are completely indifferent."
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "all of SQ"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Cons: "Flight attendants were bot friendly, appearwd to be botheted when askes questions or requests were made."
Pros: "Staff was polite and accommodating"
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Singapore was fine and helpful with a crazy problem JustFly created then didn’t fix."
Cons: "JustFly billed the wrong price, then to fix that,created a new ticket with my name misspelled and failed to cancel the original ticket. We later upgrade seats via Singapore then discovered the duplicate booking and misspelling. To fix that JustFly cancelled the booking with the seat upgrade. Singapore restored our upgrade at the airport but only on one direction so we had to go through it all again."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "wide seats. great service. on time."
Cons: "food was not as good as one would expect."
Pros: "That the A380 was only 70%full, resulting in me getting three seats to myself. I was able to stretch out and sleep for most of the flight. Food and service were top notch. Better value than Lufthansa or American, for the overall flight experience. You could fly cheaper, but not better, in economy."
Cons: "Though we landed early at JFK, we had a one hour wait on the tarmac until one of the only two gates capable of receiving an A380 opened up."
Pros: "Friendliness"
Pros: "The flight was carried out by Lufthansa. The staff was very polite and helpful."
Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Love the service at Singapore Air. Very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt airport was horribly slow. Also, audio jack didn't work properly. Not sure how often that's checked."
Pros: "I got in some exercise during the delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Delay after delay, gate changes, lack of care from employees, missed a day of vacation in Germany, missed out on photos and memories"
Pros: "The entertainment 100s of movies & Shows The very good portions just right"
Cons: "Boarding is very efficient and well organized But when it is going to be an hour late the passengers should be told not stand there on lines with no information"
Cons: "Extremely cramped flight in regular Economy."
Pros: "Excellent crew, efficient processes and overall relaxing"
Cons: "Old business class hard product. Seats can't be adjusted much and the bed is too short due to small head- and footwell."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "Cabin was beat up and worn out."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."
Cons: "The Internet was very expensive and very little. I was disappointed, and had to ask 3 times to different attendants to help me set it up. They were not acquainted with the process at all."
Pros: "The flight experience was pretty great overall.."
Cons: "I didn't like that interacting with their websitewas not very iser friendly or reliable. While most domestic airlines allow you to easuly interact with your itinerary I pretty much had to just show up and hope everything worked out. Also no alerts or other functions."

The service is top notch, and they really make you feel valued and comfortable.

I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017.

Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"
Cons: "Why does it take 2 hours to get all passengers on board? Why only one exit/ entry point to board/ disembark for an Airbus 440? The mist inefficient organization of passenger logistics you can imagine Hopeless airports..useless Airlines"
Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Out of mango juice and the plane was too old."
Pros: "Wonderful Experience with Qatar airways, as always."
Cons: "Leg room is tight, as it's with other economy airlines. Aside from that, there is really nothing to complain about."
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

Cons: "The delay from Bahrain to Doha. We delayed around 30 min. On the plane before take off."

Unfortunately this was operated by Delta which is nothing like Virgin.

Lounge in Heathrow is great. Staff aim to please and very courteous. The upper class seat is very narrow with no storage area. Strange seating position, no options to recline the seat while sitting up. Who thought that this was a good idea? IFE minimal. On borard Lavs shared with premium economy class.

Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there

Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"
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: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "Crew were great! Neck cushions on chair aren’t adjustable and not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight"
Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected."
Cons: "It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity."
Pros: "Everything (with the exception of the subject below), thank you. One thing that really surprised me, though, is how much I liked the eggs (on both flights) and what went with the eggs, like the spinach and potatoes and bacon on this flight and the potatoes and sausage (and was there something else?) on the next flight. Kudos for making something that has got to be cheap taste good. Thanks."
Cons: "Come to think of it, there was one thing that I didn't particularly like, and that was how the headphones only worked on one side only (there was only audio on one side). At first I thought that maybe I had just gotten bad headphones, but the my next flight was the same: the headphones also only played audio on one side."
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "Amenities"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "MEL/AKL 7/7 FLIGHT CANCELLED. NO NOTIFICATION SENT. Online system down. .....try later. Had to call Philippines. Eventually got transferred to Air NZ 777.Great flight .... would never use Virgin again. AKL/MEL FLIGHT 13/7 CHANGED FROM 6:30 TO 7:50 TO 8:10. No advice. Online system down. Unable to get updated status. 20mins call to Philippines. No apologies.Ended up on an A330 800 .No USB points. Got a seat, but everything from cushions to Coke had to be paid extra. At be slightly cheaper, but no better than Tiger"
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."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Pros: "Nothing really!"
Cons: "I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly."

Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "Not flown with Delta in many years and impressed by the aircraft (A320), crew and customer service"
Cons: "Check-in was a bit of a hassle as kiosk would not accept our details but agent was able to resolve the problem"
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment great"
Cons: "Seat were very uncomfortable.. hard, not enough leg room and there was no way to sleep comfortably with the head rest that is set up so you can rest your head on it,but its awkward and hard an in the way..."
Pros: "The flight was late but the pilots made up most of the time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
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)."

Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."

Pros: "Great seat. I did the upgrade and it was so comfortable ...good food."
Cons: "They closed the shades immediately when we took off. Creepy"
Pros: "Having a not full flight and room to spread out. The Dreamliner is awesome. On time departure."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all, and I think I was charged 3 times Landed 30 mins early and then waited an hour for the gate, I get that things happen but we have been on the plane for 11.5 hrs. Figure it out!"
Pros: "Great service outstanding staff"
Cons: "Entertainment package needs to better emirates and qatar could be taken as examoles Delay un take iff 3 times now in last 12 months"
Pros: "Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well."
Cons: "Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey."
Pros: "ear plugs, eye mask, pillow and blanket provided. fruit, water and juice available without asking someone for it. adequate leg room, good movie selection and 2 meals with wine provided."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
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: "Food and beverage choices excellent"
Pros: "Very good service, plenty of food, food was pretty good, entertainment system was great and the seats in economy with very comfortable."
Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but for such a short flight that's fine"
Cons: "It's so confusing when they list Virgin and Delta interchangeably, when you're not exactly sure which you're going to get. And in my experience, there is a huge difference between the two, so I prefer to know exactly which airline will be servicing me. Just be more clear in listing on flight info. This was not a Virgin flight, it was a Delta one."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Friendly staff Soft landing"
Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "Everything was just fine"
Cons: "For options none. No drink carts at all. Had coffee once after I asked. Poor quality entertainment. Just a huge waste of money."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was helpful and patient. The food and drinks were good."
Cons: "Clarity in the PA system could be better. Too much background noise."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Pros: "Empty seats direct into Indy."
Cons: "Rough landing."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "luggage was there when I got off the plane."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."
Cons: "Gave confusing instructions on transfer"
Cons: "The flight dely 1 hour"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Pros: "The pilots were communicative of why and what the reasons were of delays as far as the landing and getting the plane to the gate."
Cons: "Attendants that offered drinks and snacks offered me coffee or water but didn’t offer a snack. But asked the girl next to me if she would want one. No consistency"
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was a short easy flight that actually landed early."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived early, great flight."
Cons: "We had to wait at customs about 30 minutes because we were early!"
Pros: "i liked very much the cheese and the coffee was also good."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them."
Cons: "Snacks are small, but delicious cookies."
Cons: "I paid extra to sit comfortably only to have the seat adjoining my occupied by someone who expanded over onto my seat! Leaving me barely any room to sit comfortably."
Pros: "Left on time, no hassles at boarding. We were in premium economy and seating was comfortable for both of us, not-too-tall people. FA were quite friendly."
Cons: "One bathroom wouldn't flush, which was a problem with limited facilities and a full flight."
Pros: "friendly staff check in was fast food was good"
Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"
Pros: "Crew was the best!"
Cons: "I really dislike the snack boxes. Snacks need to be more like a small sandwich or grapes, cheese and nuts. Not all that packaged stuff."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "The USB connection at my seat worked; it often does not, so this was an improvement. The turkey sandwich was moist and delicious."
Pros: "Everyone was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The microphone needs to be louder. It was very hard to hear."
Pros: "Clean & modern aircraft Comfortable seat Proactive customer service"
Cons: "Delayed departure (due to Air Traffic Control) Finding my bag damaged on arrival More refreshments would have been nice"
Pros: "we got there"
Cons: "not much to like. a 55 minute delay from a small airport to the hub is going to cause you to miss your connection. Sure enough I missed my flight home and got to spend 41/2 hours in Detroit. They said it was a weather delay. But folks getting off the plane said it was a crew problem."
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Cons: "We we missed our connection they wouldn't help us at all."
Cons: "Not a fan of the distance between our arrival gate in ATL and connecting flight to BUF. Couldn't be helped, I suppose."
Pros: "Turbulence didn't allow the beverage cart to serve passengers"
Cons: "I had a problem getting a boarding pass that was a carryforward from a problem that I had had on the flights from the USA to Frankfort 2 weeks earlier. On those flights, I was denied boarding on the flight from Amsterdam to Frankfort because of miscommunication between Delta and KLM. Apparently, the staff who dealt with that problem did not note that the issue had occurred, so it looked like there were "out-of-sequence" segments on my initial flight and I was not allowed to check in electronically. It took several calls to KLM and Delta in Frankfurt to try to resolve the problem and finally it was determined that it could only be resolved at the airport. Other than a very nice KLM representative, the other people I talked to seemed unwilling to engage in helping me and sent me along to someone else. Although the problem was ultimately fixed, this was not a great customer service experience."
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding process was very sluggish causing us to be delayed."
Pros: "Flying Delta is always a great. Gate agent and crew are top notch."
Pros: "We landed 50 min early!"
Cons: "The aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly before boarding."
Pros: "The length of the flight, one of the flight attendants WAS very charming."
Cons: "When I asked for a drink, after having fallen asleep and awoken just as the cart passed me, I was told just one minute, 10 minutes later, a flight attendant came by, they had food, I asked again for some water, was again told in just a minute, took 20 minutes to get water. The earbuds I was given didn't work, my own didn't work, apparently the seat I was in has a connectivity issue, so the sound kept blasting in and out and was horrible. I had to hold the connector in the seat. The food option was non-existant once the cart came to me, the only option was chicken, which was horrible. Overall, I was not impressed with the service or flight ...."
Pros: "Flight got in early. Attendants were friendly. Entertainment on board was great with lots of options."
Cons: "I wished they offered snack boxes for purchase on short flights."
Pros: "i got to Atlanta safely"
Cons: "what can cookies and a cup of juice do for me with all the delays ? i was hungry and tired. Seriously DELTA, it was a horrible time. i deserved a compensation from Delta for the entire day."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Most of the food on the menu was not available"
Pros: "Nice crew and good service"
Cons: "The other passengers are not very orderly when boarding. Passengers could have been more spaced out."
Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "1.No punishment for smiling... 2.Giving us the bread (with clippers) is great but that is not enough if we (the passengers) didn’t wash our hands. 3.Operating the seats (2 buttons) May Not be as easy as you might think."
Cons: "Cabin temperature too warm"
Pros: "In general service was great and professional"
Cons: "I honestly don’t any complains about the fly. It was an outstanding fly"
Pros: "Better seats clean bathroom"
Pros: "The airplanes were nice and the crew was wonderful!"
Cons: "I don’t like it when you pick your seat assignment and you get to the gate and all the sudden they change the seat number. Not Kayak’s fault but Turkish airlines could have done better"
Pros: "Everything else but seats."
Cons: "Seats are very small and there is not much room even though I am only 5.4 and 140 pound."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Delay in Turkey- made trip long - I understand safety first - but it was a couple hours ."
Pros: "The food, crew & entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours causing great stress and worry about missing our next flight, which we did. As there were many of us on the neit flight also I wonder if any effort was made to hold that flight for us."
Pros: "food taste"
Cons: "boarding time staff friendlines and help security of passengers piloting errors"
Pros: "Screan for every passenger to play"
Pros: "Best service"
Pros: "The service was excellent and the staff was so professional and nice"

Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Long wait for toilet"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "The courtesy to all the passengers was great"
Cons: "14 hours on the flight that's pretty much it you can't help that from the distance I had to go"
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."
Pros: "Super friendly - and fantastic entertaiment!"
Cons: "Security and bags checks returning were awful about 4 between airport doors and airplane. Must be a way to clean the process up some."
Pros: "i like the reception"
Cons: "i like how the crew welcome me.i all so like the food"
Pros: "Short flight with no issues."
Cons: "No problems--everything average."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and nice."
Cons: "There was miscommunication when checking in in Zagreb to instanbul to choose one electronic to use. We therefore mistakenly put our cell phone in our check in baggage to use our computer to do work. This was incorrect and significantly worsened our experience."
Pros: "These middle distance flights have planes that have no personal intertainment screens in buisness class. The seats have limited comfort even though there is enough room. These planes need to be updated. Service was good and the crew is very friendly."
Cons: "There was a long line at the bus gate B60 due to a lack of personnel."
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. the food was very tasty. i LOVE the little bag with slippers, socks and tooth brush and paste and other amenities."
Cons: "i got lucky and had multiple seats to myself, and it was still tight. i can imagine if i had only one seat i would be in a lot of pain coming off the flight. the bathrooms are very tight too,"
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor. Very few staff new how to manage the situation, which resulted in long delays, very frustrated passengers and an overall very negative experience. I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "Very bad meat and hospitality"
Pros: "The entertainment and food choices are great, and staff is kind and ready to help."
Cons: "The line to check in & get our boarding passes was ridiculously long -- it took us about an hour of just waiting in line before even getting to security."
Cons: "The plane left late I almost lost my next plane to Los Angeles a good thing the next plane was late so I make it"
Cons: "Boarding was "like a bar fight. After business clase call, they didn't even call star alliance etc. There was h"
Cons: "to hot, very hot!!! ו suffered too much"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Suttle to the air plane."
Pros: "Food was great. Plane was on-time."
Cons: "9hr flight no cool air. Not sure what was wrong with the plane but was extremely hot in the entire economy cabin."
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Pros: "the crew were very nice, the plane was new and half empty and it arrived on time"
Pros: "The meal was good and fulfilling The cabin crew dressed like a chef is a nice and fun thing."
Cons: "Slow boarding to the plane, passengers don't respect the different boarding class rule and the staff was not enforcing it. Passengers were standing in the plane after it landed but while it was still driving on the runway and they were opening the overhead luggage compartments risking other passengers health with falling luggage. Also since passengers were standing and the plane was driving on the runway, they were not stable and moving sideways and one of them hit a sitting passenger in the head by mistake. The on-flight entertainment system didn't work from FRA to IST The staff did not do a safety check (check if seat belts on all passengers, seats are in upright position) prior to the plane flying Overall I flew with them 4 times (2 way ticket, with connection flights) and all flights were late to depart and eventually arrive late."
Pros: "Great!"
Pros: "Onboard experience very good. Food, entertainment, facilities. Tight seats - per usual."
Cons: "Getting boarding passes and checking luggage took two hours. Literally was being dealt with for two hours personally while a couple employees typed and complained to reticket us after airline inexplicably cancelled our reservation on flight home. Until about 30 minutes before departure, no employee had assured us we would get on the plane we paid to be on. Just no concern for the anxiety we were dealing with - and Turkish caused."
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact the airline didn't compensate us even though we missed our connection flight"
Pros: "All very nice"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."
Cons: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"
Pros: "It's the first time we use Turkish Airline and ,the ride was pleasant and comfortable, crew is friendly , meal was tasty ..."
Pros: "Really an excellent experience again, great crew, great flight."
Pros: "the entertainment was good - nice staff - the interval of refreshments was good. the red wine was Ok too!"
Cons: "the bathrooms could be cleaned every few hours with so many visiting it for 13 hours.... it really becomes a bacteria hot spot ...!"
Cons: "The seats were a little smaller than the usual airlines I take."
Pros: "Other than the food and a little bit the entertainment (I was given the same comedy episodes for the way there and back) everything was perfect. In the future my first choice is going to be Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "Even though the service was excellent - the food was just OK. I had the pasta for breakfast - there was no other choice. I hate pasta and in general there were too many carbs and too few protein choices. Maybe it is a personal taste but for me the food was simply not tasty. That applies for everything I had (except the yellow rice which was good). As for the entertainment - I watch mainly comedy episodes on TV. The same episodes were given on all 4 legs."
Pros: "All was fine, very professional"
Cons: "boarding messages in Frankfurt airport were not clear re which rows were to board first. Please speak a bit more clearly"
