flight was hour late and connection was tight. Not much help from ground crew to get through security and across the airport to the connecting flight.

If there is any possibility to avoid the delay in boarding, that would be great

The only thing that really bothered me was an obnoxiously loud and annoying child sitting next to her father, who had headsets on and made no attempt to discipline the child. I thought maybe the staff should have said something to him in a polite manner

The best airline ever

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"
Pros: "Wonderful crew. Pretty nice and clean plane, I wish the normal distances between chairs were a bit bigger. My knees hurt. Flight was very smooth, landing seamless."
Cons: "Boarding in jfk is always a nightmare, and this was not any better. Huge crowds blocking the hallways, boarding started 15 minutes late, departed late - therefore arrived late and we missed the connection to Kiev, had to spend 8 hours in Doha."

Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"
Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The long flight from Houston to Doha was good."

Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Pros: "quick"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Cons: "Seat number was the same but different position from one reserved online"

Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"
Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"
Pros: "The crew was always present. The food was good too."
Cons: "Too many crying children, but that has nothing to do with you guys. And the movie selection could have been more and better. The bathrooms should be frequently checked and cleaned."
Pros: "Stuardess verry nice, exceptional"
Pros: "Good food includes veg."
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."

Pros: "My daughter gets airsick and one of the staff in particular was so helpful unlike some other airline"
Pros: "I slept most of the flight and awoke to the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "Long time to check in. Not the airlines fault. Passengers had so much luggage, I didn't think the plane would leave the ground. There should be a line for people who travel light."
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"
Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."
Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"
Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."
Pros: "Good timing only"
Cons: "All"
Cons: "Seriously, the service of Qatar Airways was horrendous in Uganda. Ridiculous. Could NOT give a worse review. Would 100% NOY recommend this airline. EVER."
Pros: "Perfect landing."
Cons: "My seat was too far from Toilet.."
Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Way exceeded my expectations!"
Pros: "Everything..."
Cons: "Brighter, kinder and nicer faces."

Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "I really like more legs room and comfort and crew member were very good and helpful. Regarding food I say it’s just ok."
Pros: "The crew was nice, and they served plenty of drinks. They even give a free light meal on the JFK-LAX flight. Decent in-flight entertainment options and free WiFi for use with WhatsApp and iMessage only."
Cons: "There wasn't nearly enough legroom. The plane was an old 767; it would have been nice to have a power outlet too."
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "- great customer service - friendly staff - Positive energy"
Cons: "- No room in the seats - No food served on plane - Crowded -"
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
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."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "Delta personel were wonderful and helpful both flights"
Cons: "Flights were continually changed both on route to Cancun and on the way back"
Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It is the first time that I travel by this airline and I have a bad experience. The flight was delayed by 2 hours and before arriving at Los Angeles airport they informed us that they had not been provided with the migration forms."
Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
Pros: "I had a great seat (exit row) with lots of legroom. They provided a free breakfast, and it was actually pretty good. A few hours later i was hungry and tried to buy some food but the cabin crew just gave my another breakfast item. The flight arrived on time, and the luggage was delivered a few minutes after I arrived at the baggage area."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a very good experience."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "No meal served on a 5 hours flight!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."
Cons: "The attendants on this flight were gossiping right behind us and we heard them talk about ignoring calls from people during our wait on the tarmac at LAX. Again we were in the last seats in the plane and this time it was stinky."
Pros: "Good handling of a late flight--made my connection, but without bags, and they kept us well fed and informed while waiting.."
Cons: "Of course the delay, but it happens."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "some food was frozen when served (salad and cheese). Coffee wasn't that great either."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food had only beef options"
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Leg room Food choices"
Pros: "Great movie selection during the flight. Most of the food was decent."
Cons: "The boarding process was a pain in the butt. Even though my boyfriend and I did a pre- check-in online the day before. We still had to wait over an hour to check our one piece of luggage and wait to be checked in and get the boarding pass. Even though the site says we have the option to print out the boarding pass or show the code on our phone, we still had to deal with all the hassle. The plane was smelly until we were about to take off. The first meal on our way back from Istanbul was awful. The omelette was greasy, overly cheesy and bland. Same goes for the spinach pastry in the same tray. On the flights to Cairo, there was not enough drinks served. I only had one beverage offered to me. I was bypassed when they were serving the coffee/ tea. Also, the timeliness with serving drink was bad... I waited about 4 hours before getting my first beverage on the flight home."
Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Cons: "Horrible service I will never go with this airline The attendants never came to us when we needed them this is my second time The attendants don’t care and don’t even love k at you"
Cons: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing was nice"
Cons: "Staff seemed to not care about passengers. Could partially be a language/cultural barrier, but i have consistently noticed staff just want to push through their tasks. Actual service is not a priority it seems. Another issue, often times they run out of food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The kosher food was bad"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Very attentive, even in coach. Amenities were good. The food was adequate to good."
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard. Still, the legroom wasn't any worse than a domestic flight."
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Cons: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."
Pros: "My kids, wife and I loved flying to Turkish Airlines. Always on time, tasty and nutritious food, wonderful staff who help you with smile on their faces. Sure, we'll fly Turkish Airlines from now on."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The food was SUPER DELICIOUS! The seats were comfortable, the movie selection is great, and the staff's care and commitment to customer happiness is unmatched!"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms. Very long lines to go to the bathroom."
Cons: "No, disappointments:)"
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Food is great. Flight attendants were very helpful. Entertainment options are great. Comfy seats. Short flight."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is crowded. Looking forward to the new airport."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. I enjoyed my flight specially delicious food. I will definitely fly again by Turkish Airlines. I also recommend to other travelers."
Cons: "The flight arrived a little late. It was not on time."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite. Free alcoholic drinks helped with the long list of negatives aspects of the flight."
Cons: "Every flight was 30+ minutes late. Crew members at the gate were consistently on their phones and delayed service substantially. Not only am I incredibly frustrated that I could not bring my laptop onboard to do work, but the fact I wasn't told until right at boarding and it took extensive time to reclaim it makes Turkish airlines on par with Ryan Air for inconveniencing its customers. At baggage claim, the crew loaded our baggage on the incorrect track, making it take even longer to receive it. Seats and leg room are sub par. As someone who is 6'3, when the person in front of me put their seat back, I was forced to take a metal bar on the back of their seat to my knees (no matter the position). I will be recommending to both family and friends that they should avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "entertainment selection"
Cons: "entertainment console was a bit clunky and old flight left 2 hrs later than scheduled."
Pros: "I got extremely sick on the flight from Istanbul to San Francisco. I now know I caught a stomach bug which hit me on the flights from Cape Town to Istanbul and then even worse from Istanbul to San Francisco. The flight from Istanbul was delayed by two hours due to customs delay for a passenger, as such there was a lot of recycled air. Take that and fact I'm pregnant and by time i started the 13 hour journey already felt sick. I started throwing up immediately and got sick 12 more times. the flight attendants brought me crackers, water and a cold towel and ice. My husband asked if he could pay to put me in business class but was not in airline policy. but i think given how sick and pregnant i was the flight attendant went to ask the captain if there was anything they could do to assist. they ended up moving me to business class to lie down and let me stay there for 3 hours. I got sick upon moving back but getting that rest really helped me. I felt like they genuinely cared about me and am so thankful to the two flight attendants who assisted: 1) Zumrat Bolukbas 2) Hatice (Cabin Chief) These women are amazing!"
Cons: "the 2 hour flight delay on tarmac."
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "more leg room. comfortable seats. polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was rebooked 24hrs later! Not okay!"
Pros: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was above average. The in-flight crew was fine, although not particularly gracious or kind."
Cons: "The on-ground customer service in Istanbul was the worst experience I have ever had with humans in my whole life. They were unhelpful, rude, blatantly ignored people, dismissive, walked away from customers when they didn't want to deal with them, did not do anything to keep order when people were cutting in line after people were waiting for 4+ hours. I will avoid flying Turkish Airlines as best I can."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed 2 hours and then we sat on the plane for 7 hours before take-off, while the crew took care of several issues. Ridiculous. Should have made us wait at the airport gate so we could have eaten proper food and had wifi."
Pros: "I like the good service and the food"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything from good to entertainment"
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."
Cons: "Nothing negative. Keep up good work!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got lucky to be alive after the flight"
Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."
Cons: "Did not update food preferences after the flight was changed due to cancellation by Turkish airlines"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"
Pros: "My wife and I try to travel internationally 2 or 3 times a week to various parts of the world. International airlines tend to be better than the US-based ones, and Turkish Airlines was no exception. We flew from SFO -> IST in March 2016 and they were really milking the fact that they're in the new Batman vs Superman movie with ads on the in-flight magazines, a fancy bat-shaped trifold menu, on-board amenity bag, and even showed trailer after the safety video. At Istanbul, we saw another plane that was completely wrapped with the Batman vs Superman logo. Haha The service was very good, food was good (they even had the chefs greet people as they got on and off the plane), and they had a great selection of movies/entertainment. Despite all the hours I have flown, I'm not good with sleeping in economy seats and while the seats are good, I still can't sleep in these. I'm about 5'-10", average build, and didn't have a problem with legroom or seat width. I like that they also give out this little amenity bag with fluffy slippers, earplugs, lip balm, and I forget what else. It's embroidered with a Batman vs Superman logo on it. Not bad! Earbuds are also free, but I don't know the quality because I used my own. After taking off, they'll serve a meal, pass out drinks (fresh lemonade is only available when originating from Turkey), and then dim the lights and leave you alone. A couple hours before landing, they'll pass out drinks and and another meal. I didn't try, but you can request a cheese sandwich and drinks any time. The only difference with this airline is that everywhere else, the flight attendants will ask people to right up their seats during meals. They don't here and you have to ask the person in front to please sit up so their seat isn't all in your face. Turkey actually has a city called Batman (near the Syrian border), and some ruins called Metropolis (near Izmir). No, Turkish Airlines doesn't actually fly there so their ad copy is a little wrong. We didn't get a chance to visit either of these places, but it would've been cool to check them out."
Cons: "Not anything to do with Turkish Airlines, but being based in Istanbul, the International airport (Ataturk) is still under construction. I don't know which flights used the jetway, but all the flights we took from there (international and domestic) required boarding a bus between the plane and the gate."
Pros: "Vegetarian option of the food. Constant hydration"
Cons: "WiFi"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"
Pros: "Seat comfort."
Cons: "Food selection."
Pros: "Terrible flight. Super tight seats. Major airport delay to take off and land. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "The entertainment was not functioning"
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Cabin crew's service was excellent! Very attentive and friendly. Special diet (gluten-free) dinner was delicious. Lavatories located downstairs."
Cons: "Economy seating was too tight. Not enough space or leg room."
Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s service counter in Munich was helpful with locating baggage and unfamiliar with transit rules."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, as well as the first meal....restaurant quality."
Pros: "They were great with service"
Cons: "Having to have to close my window shade so I couldn't see outside"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Great entertainment options."
Pros: "Upstairs deck for economy is a small space but is relatively quiet. Boarding was relatively quick through electronic gates where you scan your boarding card. Flight attendant was very personable. She was checking some passenger names as some seemed to have switched seats and remembered mine for the rest of the flight. Something you usually get in business class but a first for me in economy. They also came around several times during the flight with water/juice, and snacks. Entertainment was ok. A mixture of newer movies available."
Cons: "Like all economy seating not much space especially when the person in front reclines their seat. This makes getting in and out of the seat a little difficult. Food a bit limited. 2 main meals for this flight (lunch/dinner) - chicken or pasta for the first one and beef or pasta (again) for the pre-landing meal. Also the attendant didn’t know the translation of the pasta dish from German to English so that was a bit disappointing. One thing to note. I flew Hamburg to Frankfurt to connect to the San Francisco flight with a 1 hour layover. You need to go through passport control in FRA and then I hustled to get to the gate. They were boarding as I arrived but maybe 10 minutes later and I would have missed my flight. No issues with the airline just a cautionary note on the layover time. I would likely book an earlier connecting flight to give a bit more time."
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."
Pros: "Food was pretty good,Lufthansa one of the best companies to fly with."
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "Quiet comfortable flight"
Cons: "Unorganized biarding and no labeling on hallway what direction to take."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Cons: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."
Pros: "The positive attitude of the crew members. Even though flight long they continued to smile. Very smooth flying and plane on time. Free drinks including alcohol."
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pros: "Lufthansa service is always incredible. Food is better than most other carriers and so is entertainment. Had a delay due to incoming flights, but staff made sure we had plenty of water and snacks while on the tarmac."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats were ok."
Cons: "Check in was very, very slow, for some reason."
Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."
Pros: "Food was very good, super nice crew. Good selection of movies. Boarding was great, we are seniors, we didn't ask for assistance beforehand, but the person at the gate called us over and had us board early. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Seats were just too cramped. We chose seats and paid extra to do that, but the seating charts really didn't give a very good idea of what to expect or how to choose. Announcements were to difficult to understand. Also in the gate area, I couldn't understand names at all. Need to slow down and speak more clearly."
Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."
Pros: "I liked how organized the crews are. The flight attendants are driven by efficiency. Things were done quickly like serving drinks and water. Appreciated having the hand towel to wipe the hands before serving the meals."
Cons: "I fly economy class with United and Lufthansa when I travel from the US to Asia or Europe. Lufthansa seats feel narrower. I am only 1.62 meters in height. I felt there was not enough room for a 12+ hour flight (delayed by one hour). The small leg room began to take a toll after 6 hours of flight."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."
Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"
Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"
Cons: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pros: "Crew worked hard to make the journey pleasant, including the second crew for my connection to New York JFK, a much longer flight. Even some of the food was edible."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."
Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."
Cons: "This was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever been on. The extra cushion attached to the chairs behind our heads made the chairs very uncomfortable pushing our heads too far forward. Not only was it difficult to sleep, it ended up giving me a terrible back and neck ache. The flight from Dubrovnik to Munich didn't have this extra cushion but the flight from Munich to San Francisco did. It's a terrible feature and should be removed. Lastly, the food on this flight was awful and it made me sick. I traveled in Croatia and Montenegro for 2 weeks and didn't get sick once but I got sick from the airline food on the way home, that's pretty disgusting."
Pros: "Lufthansa really knows how to run an airline, there was a one day strike the day before our departure for SFO, we thought for sure the airport would be a disaster, all through the strike we were updated on our flight status via email, when we arrived to the airport from Florence, we were in a brand new airport terminal, the flow was flawless the plane was on time and you would never know there was any disruption, unlike the US the airport is a mess for days, we would fly Lufthansa anytime."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Pros: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "Good flight, liked the extra leg room."
Cons: "While on board, the flight attendants forgot to give me food. They gave me drinks, but good until I asked another attendant. Bad service!!!"
Pros: "It was good because I was placed in EconomyPlus"
Cons: "Was not able to check-in on line and I could not book my seat - so I was just assigned seating. Fortunately it worked and I got the window seat on the shorter flights and an aisle seat for the longer flight."
Pros: "Constant food & drinks; large selection of movies, shows, music, games. Very courteous staff."
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "Did they really have to collect headsets a full 30 minutes before we landed? I was right in the middle of a movie. Next time I'll just hide it."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seat felt very cramped, even more than usual . I could barely get in /out of my seat if the seat in front of me was reclined."
Pros: "The crew was excellent; professional and calm The movie selection was great The plane was quite new and comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic for such a large plane; why don't they board by row numbers? My special meal was not very tasty"

Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.

Okay

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Pros: "Even for a 50 minute flight, drinks and sandwich was provided"
