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."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing was nice"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The kosher food was bad"

Pros: "Good food Hotel accommodations were okay once we had to stay overnight."
Cons: "The flight left early and left about 10 passengers behind leaving us stuck in Turkey for the night. The customer service was not good, they were extremely rude and unapologetic."

Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "With some reason, everything was smooth at Istanbul compare to SFO."

Cons: "Policy"

Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."

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: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."

Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."

Pros: "Good entertainment options, and they keep you well fed with their snacks."
Cons: "The plane departed 2+ hours late, and offered no free internet so we could tell our families that we would be late. They also didn't apologize or offered vouchers for the delay."

Pros: "Courteous"
Cons: "Nice people"

Pros: "more leg room. comfortable seats. polite and friendly crew."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."

Pros: "Worst customer service ever."
Cons: "Just don't do it. I've never been so mistreated. Everyone I met at the Istanbul airport who flew on Turkish was miserable and angry because of the way they were being treated."

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: "It didn't happen and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "The meals was good"

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

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."

Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."

Cons: "Basically the wifi doesn't work on these long haul flights. It's either not connected or extremely slow. I finally gave up and didn't bother"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The steward was very nice. He let me store my special salad and pudding."

Cons: "Excellent customer service"

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."

Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was stressful because of the extra security check point for us destinations."

Pros: "free large movie selection. good food with some Turkish flair. super friendly staff. power port for electronics. Istanbul is a very busy airport hub. This time, we had no delays, but we have before."

Pros: "flights on time.."

Cons: "Better food offerings"

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."

Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."

Pros: "The crew WAS amazing!"
Cons: "Not a thing! It was perfect"

Pros: "Fast flight"

Pros: "That it got me home"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."

Cons: "Multilpe delays"

Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."

Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Got in early"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"

Pros: "The plane wasn't cramped, the flight staff was helpful, and we got to our destination extremely quickly. And they gave us like two rounds of snacks which is unheard of on such short flights. Easily the best domestic flight I've ever taken."

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"

Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"

Cons: "No free wifi."

Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."

Pros: "Comfort and space comparing to my outbound flight from SFO to Munich. This plane was way older but at least there was a little bit of space. Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Entertainment units kept crushing, were not responsive. Difficult to use and enjoy. Frankfurt airport - total mess at the additional passport control before going to "Z" gates. Crowd of people, huge lines, all disorganized. The control for EU passengers was not so crowded but you couldn't see it at the end of the line, so even people who didn't have to were all crowding in the same cue. Horrible experience and I almost missed my flight because of this mess."

Pros: "staff"
Cons: "major delay, poor communication andaccommodation considering delay"

Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."

Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the boarding process was fast and simple. No food just snacks and what they had was good.

Pros: "Same as above but even better."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "my favorite airline"

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: "Wonderful overall"

Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."

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.

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"

Cons: "Food can be better"

Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Cons: "No downsides at all"

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."

Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Cons: "Didn’t happen."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

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)."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."

Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."

Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."

Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."

Cons: "Traveling in a 737-800, there is no displays at your seat. One must BYOD. Wifi was spotty."

Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."

Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"

Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."

Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"

Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty goid"
Cons: "They made a horrible mistake by getting the bag count or weight wrong and we had to go back to the gate and it cost us 2 1/2 hours."

Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."

Pros: "I love your entertainment selection. also the comfort of seat and it's on time."

Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."

Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."

Pros: "Sightsee"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"

Pros: "On time, no problems, free food"
Cons: "3 & 3 configuration"

Cons: "No electrical outlets. No monitors"

Pros: "When the lettuce looks like the salad you forgot to put away last night you know it has been around and about too long! Pity!"

Pros: "I loved my seat,with the leg rest‼️ THANK YOU"

Pros: "Loved the entertainment features. Great movie selection!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "Took off and arrived on time."

Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."

Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"

Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "Very quick connection"

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
