Although the food menu states that noodles and snacks were available upon request, we were turned down several times when we requested. Food served, especially main entree, were barely edible.

I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Cons: "They are simply liars!!! No shame, no responsibility they gave information that flight was canceled I'm MIA, September 8, 2017when I called them three times. But after Hurricane Irma, when I call them and ask for refund money for not having flight! ..They just simply lie !... like passengers don't show up. .just don't pay money! !!

Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time.

I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."

Pros: "Pillow, comforter, amenity kit were all good."

Cons: "Seat didn't recline, no changing station for my child onboard (but charged me a full price ticket)"

The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked.

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."

Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."

Cons: "I was between two large men and couldn’t sit all the back in my seat. Eating was a real trick!"

Cons: "I don't know."
Cons: "Connection time unacceptable with delay in departure from London"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Cons: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."
Pros: "Great crew and all were pleasant and attentive. Best airline I have flown."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "One of the flight attendance made hand gestures indicating eating when I asked him to repeat the dinner choices. That was very rude."

Cons: "With a short layover and a bit of a delay coming from Seattle, I rushed through immigration and security and ran to my next gate.

Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."

Cons: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Cons: "Lost my luggage . I am in Madrid with no luggage."

Pros: "The food for the morning was a white chocolate cranberry cookie which was delicious"
Cons: "Our plane was 30 mins late and the terminal was right next to security so we couldn’t hear them when they spoke the English or French on the PA system about us being delayed. We just barely made our connecting flight and our next flight was way better in service. Our luggage didn’t make the connection and hoping that all our precious cargo from our anniversary trip made it. The flight attendant told us we had enough time to make it to our next flight but I honestly ran from one point of the airport to the other. The staff said it wasn’t that far and no checkpoints to go through - this information was false."
Pros: "I liked that if I asked for something the crew would get to me rapidly. Extra leg room."
Cons: "Boarding process: just a lot of confusion. Inflight crew service poor: the was no time to have any brain reaction when they would pass by with coffee or anything...and when I asked for coffee the answer for a gentlemen of the crew was: coffee already passed by. Really!!?? Make sure that +$1200 are spent well. Rude or inattentive crew members shouldn’t be on flights that are that long...I had to nsist to have a miserable cup of coffee. Movie selection was poor. USB port didn’t work. Shame on you!"
Pros: "Wonderful crew and amazing soft landing, like cream."
Pros: "Everything was on time; boarding was very fast and smooth; flight attendance very friendly and resolute. I have food 4 stars because I didn't try it."

Cons: "Could not cancel flight and was charged for it."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food and service."
Cons: "Check-in is bit tedious and the kiosk didn't work properly. Flight was delayed due to some incidents but they are not airlines' fault.."
Cons: "Ridiing buses on tarmac to get to the plane."
Pros: "Cabin Crew were again EXCELLENT!!!"
Cons: "No chargers at the seats. Not good on an 11 hour flight. And this was on one of your premiere giant planes."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Pros: "Very friendly crew! Very comfortable seats. Bailey's offered free! I had never been on an Airbus 340 before--stairs down to the bathroom was interesting."
Cons: "Food--but probably no worse than other airlines."
Pros: "Exceptional! The new plane was excellent. Like the downstairs toilet arrangement. Food was the best ever for overseas flight. Entertainment center was also excellent."
Pros: "flight left on time"
Cons: "arrived on time with no problems"

Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Food, seat"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Tight squeeze into seats. TV selection wasn’t mainstream programs - nothing of interest to an older person."
Cons: "2 of our screens didn’t have audio working so couldn’t watch movies :-(. - assistants rebooted the systems but that didn’t help :-("
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Overall crew were pleasant, boarding organized"
Cons: "Besides being 2 hours delayed, we stayed 10+ hours crammed in very small seats, causong poor ability to rest the whole flight. Very unpleasant and painful for such a long flight."
Pros: "The plane was new and clean, the staff was extra nice, there was a tv screen in each seat. The flight was very much on time."
Cons: "The food is so, so. The seats are extremely narrow"
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed in Denver the agent at the check in gate worked very hard to get our flight plans changed with as little impact as possible."
Cons: "We understand that delays happen but due to a delay on American Airlines we have lost our luggage and it doesn't seem likely it will be returned. We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."

Cons: "Plane was new, but small for an international flight. We traveled with an infant and there was no bassinet."
Pros: "Long flight, but I really like the 787. Comfortable travel."
Cons: "American airlines mishandled my luggage. Extremely poor communication about status. (I don't know how much all my phone calls to them will end up costing!) Two and a half days later, I have to return to the airport to pick it up. If you travel with AA, pack MORE than essentials in your carry-on! Also it is criminal that they charge extra for aisle seats!"
Pros: "The crew in the plane was so happy and funny ! Nice group ! The food was fine, always can be better that’s the true hahahah"

Pros: "The crew was excelent ! Very efficient"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Waiting for the bathroom I overheard a flight attendant telling the other one that she "wished that when she grew old she wasn't so damn stupid like some of the passengers on this flight". She wasn't even trying to be silent, which I thought was a bit shameless on her part and mostly why I'm writing this review. (Maybe she wasn't smart enough to think some of us understood English?) Very unprofessional."
Cons: "I was expecting to fly British Airways but instead I was booked on a American Airlines which flew me on an old shitty airplane. Never again."
Pros: "Flight only half full. Had both seats near window so could almost lay down to sleep. Crew was very helpful."

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The shared screens."
Cons: "Wifi was not working in the airplane unfortunately. You could connect to it but it was not working at all for anybody '"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was 3 hours delayed and we ended up with an aircraft that was in the hanger. The economy seats were really tight, more suitable for a 2-3 hour domestic flight, not for a transoceanic 7 hour flight. I paid $81 for my seat since AA did not let me choose my seat. $81 for a seat that was really uncomfortable and with very limited leg room. I felt ripped off. There were common screens as entertainment instead of individual ones, very obsolete. This will be the last AA flight I will take."
Pros: "It was an ok airplane, entertainment system worked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.15 hours and didn't even offered water or anything, after a while they said if we wanted we could go out of the plane... really bad!"
Cons: "Operated by American Airlines and the service was poor The air attendants just threw the food down and the flight was not even full Had to pay for drinks- never have to do this on British Airways. Not equal service considering they are partners"
Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"
Pros: "Pilot was good about keeping us informed regarding the delay in taking off. After boarding We were delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Worst seat, legroom I've had in many years. Screens were few and too small and far away to be of any use."
Cons: "Liked it all."

Cons: "was not allowed upgrade! I only tasted the food it was not eatable. I am 70 years old and id rater starve to death than eat that food and no food to buy!"

Cons: "Very old American Airlines plane, food never as good as Iberia. Not enough room for carry on. Entertainment system from 1960's"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "The pilot was amazing!"
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
