We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."
Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline.

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing, caring and helpful."
Pros: "The flight was great once we left the ground, however having flown to the destination (Japan) in Premium Economy, the differences in experience were striking."
Cons: "The boarding crew seemed disorganized, the flight boarded 30 mins late and so we were delayed when it came time to taxi and take off. The flight had numerous crying babies on it, it was warm and stuffy once in flight, the crew brought you meals you didn't have a say in ordering and having to sit for an undetermined amount of time with the used tray in front of you really made the modest space even more so. I love JAL but this flight was not one of the better ones for me. Not through any fault of the staff, they are top notch, but certainly this flight ranks as just "okay"."
Pros: "JAL work ethics are what the Japanese excel at, so there's not much to complain about."
Cons: "The same as most other airlines, the seat width and pitch has been getting smaller. Even with seat by the aisle, my elbow sometimes bumped inadvertently a wayward flight attendant."
Pros: "Nothing I like , when u buy the ticket they're so nice , but after paid they're very bad, never take care of you, u ask them some help, they're can't"
Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"

Pros: "Staffs areattentive"
Cons: "Chair space so limited"
Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."
Pros: "I asked for a window seat but if was not available. I was told to go to an information desk which were not too close and it turned out that they couldn't help."
Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."
Pros: "The seats very comfy. The food is so good. All including flight attendance are very polite people. Overall they are excellent compared to others that I flew with so far for my business trip to other country. Will be my first choice for my next trip!."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant. They were very accommodating as well."
Cons: "For my entire flight back I was so hot I could hardly stand it. I had to change my clothes and it still didn't help very much. My meals were also pretty bad on the way back, which is odd because they were not bad on the way there. It was definitely one of the worst flights that I've ever had, mostly because of the heat."
Pros: "They were super considerate the entire flight."
Cons: "The main entree was not very good."
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "JAL service is always the best Flight attendance are the always, always, awesome. Seats together were found at checkin"
Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."
Pros: "The flight attendants are very friendly and polite. The seats in economy are generous and as comfortable as they could be in economy on a 10 hour flight. The two meals provided were pretty good for food served on an airplane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Good flight! Confirtable seats, polite crew."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Food and not so updated movies in entertainment."
Pros: "We had a 4 hour delay due to maintenance, so many of us missed connecting flights in Tokyo. But the airline put us up in a hotel and gave us meals, so I had a nice bonus day to see the city. The flight itself was very pleasant, with the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen on a long flight and plenty of food and drink."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight from Taipei to Tokyo was delayed and ultimately cancelled because of "mechanical failure". Many passengers on the flight including us had international connections through Tokyo, with only an hour between flights. It was clear we were all going to miss this connection, but in a frantic and haphazard way, the JAL crew's only solution at the gate was just to get us all on the next flight out to Tokyo (I believe via China Air) no matter what our individual final destinations were. They said "from Narita, they will handle all your connections to your final destination." This was a bizarre solution. Why not reroute us individually on other partner airlines, through other countries/cities, from this international airport in Taipei, like airlines usually do? (Also, all of this disorganized communication by the JAL crew at the gate was never translated into English, I just happen to speak a little mandarin and was able to understand what they were directing us to do). My wife was the one who searched for an alternative route on her phone (through HK instead of Tokyo) via their partner airline Cathay pacific and showed it to the JAL rep at the transfer counter, and through a series of radio and phone calls, only then did they say "there might be seats left", but they couldn't book the seats for us there. In order to make the flight, we had to sprint ourselves to a completely different terminal and concourse to another transfer counter to finally book our seats on this Cathay flight. Needless to say, our luggage did not get pulled from JAL in time to make it on the Cathay flights, so we are waiting 2-3 days for them to hopefully be found and sent to us. Overall, I was completely disappointed by the JAL staff, who didn't take responsibility or ownership of the situation, and who's solution to just fly everyone out to Tokyo, no matter our final destination, and to leave us to figure out our connections there was extremely short-sighted and irresponsible, and was a total disservice to their customers. I expect much more from this airline. On another note, we flew JAL from Boston to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Taipei: the food was terrible and food options were really subpar for an international flight, I would've expected much better from JAL and the dreamliner flight."

Pros: "Cheap prise"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"

Cons: "Seats barely recline. Impossible to sleep without hurting neck. Good but low number of Indian/Hindi films."

Pros: "Fan tasting service by the crew members from the point of check in. Very attentive to all details."
Pros: "Messed everything up!!!"
Cons: "Messed everything up!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
Pros: "Good Business Class, will fly them again. Excellent service."
Cons: "No meal served upon take off, snacks only."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options.

BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "food , service"
Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"
Cons: "Decent flight but not the seat that I wanted. Window seat without a window. Emergency exit seat which is supposed to have leg room but didn't because of emergency door. Taking some over the counter pain medication helped this and made the flight bearable. Fewer storage options."

Pros: "Clean and bright, good service"
Pros: "Friendly crew, the food is very good."

Pros: "Boarding time and food."
Cons: "The space between seats and the entertainment center for the economy class because there was not one. For a seven hour flight I was expecting a more comfortable plane."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service and tasty food."
Cons: "Was surprised to see how old the plane was, and felt the movie selection was poor. Furthermore, there was no difference from our arrival flight on 12/3 and our departure on 12/17. Hard to pass the time when you have ~30 hours in the air."
Pros: "The staff are very nice."
Cons: "The economy seats"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on-time, great service and food, clean and comfortable cabin."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew. Great selection of food and drinks"
Cons: "Probably one of the most uncomfortable seat I've ever had considering I'm small and flexible. Space was really tight and I was sandwiched by two bigger people as well. Escaping the plane after 7 hours in that seat was quite a joy..."
Pros: "Good crew good service"
Cons: "No fault of the crew, flight has terrible turbulence."
Pros: "Staff moved me closer to the exit as I had a tight connection. ANA will always do their best to accommodate if possible."

Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "very late taking off once boarded"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was in an exit row and watched them prep meals. So hard working, efficientl, and smooth teamwork!"

Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Good food and clean toilet rooms."
Pros: "I would definitely fly with them again, they went above and beyond in customer service. super friendly and helpful. Very attentive to your needs, the stewardess walks down the aisle every ten minutes to check on you. We flew coach, the seats were a bit small but comfortable enough, and my biggest 'complaint' is that there was nowhere to plug in your phone during the flight. Maybe I've been spoiled on all the new planes lately, but I had grown accustomed to being able to charge my electronics on the plane. Other than that, amazing experience :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to plug in my electronics to charge during the flight."
Pros: "real cutlery"
Cons: "They closed the curtain and wouldn't let anyone in economy deboard until business class was off the plane. That was offensive and annoying. Some stupid woman struggling with Victoria's Secrets bags held us all up because she is either wealthy or a corporate hack?"
Pros: "Food was really fantastic, crew was very friendly, smooth flight"
Cons: "there was a screaming child for an incredibly long time but not sure that the airline/staff can do anything about that"
Pros: "Nice flight attendence"
Cons: "Old plane... too hot"
Cons: "After taking the dreamliner across the Pacific, this airplane seems so outdated in many ways. The personal TV screen is all blurred that watching anything is like dreaming: couldn't really see clear at all."
Pros: "The seats on the Honolulu to Narita leg were very good, and the food was excellent."
Pros: "The crew was polite The flights were on time"
Cons: "The foods on ANA used to taste better. ANA can improve on the food taste"
Cons: "Seat was a little small"
Pros: "ANA was very professional and made every effort to make sure I was re-ticketed. They met me at the plane exit, escorted me to the next counter. Assume the issue with Shanghai traffic control was out of their control, but it seems very odd they would have booked it this way if this is a normal occurrence."
Cons: "We had over a 2.5 hour delay out of Shanghai, which seemed odd, since a regular flight."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating!"
Cons: "Food was ok - not the best"
Cons: "There is a metal object installed directly at my foot room, which made it impossible for me to put both my feet in front of me. One of my foot had to be on the isle the whole time. Another thing is the quailty of the monitor (a bit out of date) Last thing is where remote control locates. It's not easy to reach for it when sitting. You have to get up a little in order to pull it out from the side."
Pros: "The flight departed SFO ~ 45 minutes late due to "refueling" issues. In flight entertainment depended on on connection to the airplane's wifi which lacked capacity to connect the majority of the passengers. For those that could connect, device chargers were frequently unavailable. This is a significant service issue on a 13 hour flight in 2017"
Pros: "the flight was ok. the food was great. And entertainment was great."
Cons: "the transist in chicago was delayed and missed the flight and the luggages did not arrive with me. the transist in Tokyo was incovenient because i had to get out from the airport and stayed at the hotel overnight which cost me extra money due to long hour of transist time."
Pros: "Love the crew at ANA. They really try to make you happy."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Ugh."
Pros: "Every is good, especially the air crews are excellent, but the flight sechedules are always change is horrible."
Pros: "The friendly service. The aircarft seem to be more roomy than most International aircraft."
Cons: "The limited choice for entertainment, The new movie choice is kind of short. The Japanese Tv drama box set should come with English subbed option."
Pros: "They mess up my itinerary n when I call the ti fix. I called them three to fix my itinerary. They put me in hold for 45 mins each time. Twice after 45 mins they put me on hold n then they hung up on me they are rude.United customer service are the worst"
Cons: "I don't like anything abt united I have a lot of costumer they hate united, after I am done using all united miles I have I will never flight with united again."
Pros: "The seat is comfortable."
Pros: "Food and beverage"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Blankets and pillows were ample and already at the seat."
Cons: "Food was worse than what I had come to expect from Cathay Pacific. Drinks were less frequent. Restroom facilities were not well kept over the course of the flight."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Nice crew , good and good"
Cons: "If someday ... someday....I can afford First Class . That’s will be Nice for a long flight ."
Pros: "Very nice service roomy aircraft A350"
Cons: "From the check in, to the food and cabin experience is worsened by far. Check in - no check in line for premium passengers.( really bad experience) Cabin crews could not separate passengers from other cabin consisting using lavatory there fore passengers constantly walk back and forward. (It’s really unpleasant) It’s. Not worth the money to paid for the experience and services."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "I don't like cameras spying on us. More leg room."
Pros: "The seat is good"
Cons: "The price low a little more is better"
Cons: "Traveling Economy class has really deteriorated. I’m 5 ft. 2 in, and it’s cramped for me!"
Pros: "I love the crew, I even didn't have chance to say what I need but I got the one I want"
Pros: "thank u very much im very happy with the flight :)"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Third time on Cathay Pacific"
Cons: "the food- vegetarian"
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight experience, everything was very smooth."
Pros: "The Denpasar Airport had been closed for days due to Ash/Volcano Agung, so luckily our Flight departed as planned, and on time. Was easily re-assigned a new seat (middle to aisle) at the gate. The staff was attentive and courteous."
Cons: "We had a roundtrip ticket from Denpasar to Bali. We were in Thailand when Bali's Mount Agung erupted and called Cathay Pacific requesting our fees be waived to change our return flight from Denpasar, Hong Kong, Newark to Bangkok-Hong Kong-Newark. Cathay Pacific said the fee to change our flight is $350, and plus the difference in the new ticket price. That option was very expensive. We were very stressed about returning to Bali due to the High Alert warnings. The Denpasar Airport was closed for days -- and our request was not unreasonable."
Pros: "Got a seat with an empty seat next to mine. Service was decent. Food quality was abysmal though."
Cons: "The flight to jfk was considerably less convenient for me than the orig flight to Newark, and I don't appreciate that you cancelled the flight at the last minute. I imagine there were not enough business and first class customers to run the flight profitably. Well if that's true, that is terrible customer service. The airport crew had no information as to the reason for the cancellation, giving the appearance that my hypothesis is true."
Cons: "The meals were not as good as on my previous flights"
Pros: "One of the better airlines for a reason, great overall"
Pros: "Food was better than other airlines for economy price. Movie selection quite good as well as other options. Liked the maps."
Cons: "My seat would not move back. The audio on the movies was very difficult to hear with background engine noise. Poor clarity, and the selection of movies was excellent, so I chose not to watch. Solitaire game was complicated to understand."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful, food was great the economy seats were comfortable even for a 15 hours floggt"
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "crew great, food very good"
Cons: "flight also late taking off"
Pros: "Cathay's new plane's are great. Comfortable, lean back quite a bit, and have good entertainment."

Pros: "Blankets and good movies and very kind"
Cons: "Sometimes too cold"
Pros: "Cathay Pacific provided excellent service."
Pros: "For a long flight, it was comforable."
Cons: "There could have had more fruit for snacks."
Pros: "We enjoyed the flight, the food, the entertainment system. Everything was good including the cleanliness of toilet facilities on this 16 hour flight. Very happy with Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "We were unable to check in online two days in advance as we were supposed to. Thus we almost did not get to sit together in a 16-hour flight."
Pros: "Timeliness, Ease of boarding and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "food was OK."
Pros: "Was able to sit with my husband on the return flight."
Cons: "Found a fingernail in my fruit salad. The crew documented the event. I have flown this route many times. There was more selection for the middle of the flight snacks in the past."
Pros: "since i've been a member of the marco polo club but don't accrue enough miles YOY, this one luck time I got the upgrade on CNY to premium economy. found it to be very comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight (considering it was like 20 hours we were traveling) Don't understand why we had to throw out the liquids we purchased past the security check points (like next to the gate). Why sell them then?"
Cons: "The ground staff should give us options before, not waiting until we are in Hong kong"
Pros: "For the 15 hour flight from Hong Kong, they served two meals and put out snacks and drinks in the galleys in the interim. The dinner was pretty decent, and they gave a small bottle of water along with Hagen Daz ice cream. The seats reclined pretty well for economy class (the bottom of the seat shifted too, which was unexpected). Power outlets at every seat and an extensive entertainment system with movies from Eastern and Western culture."
Cons: "Breakfast was eggs and some nasty looking sausage, neither of which I ate."
Pros: "Extra leg room upgrade, was well worth the cost. Bathrooms were kept clean by the staff on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "Could not get bottled water between meals and ,apparently an USA regulation, could not bring bottled water on the plane for an international flight into the u.s."
Pros: "again excellent all around,good leg room and elbow room, flight attendance were awesome !!"
Cons: "On the way to Newark was terrible because of the food. Both dinner and breakfast half of my row were served last compare to everyone else sitting before us or after us. The rice dishes were gone both times when the food got to me. I can understand if it was just one meal, but it was disappointing that I wasn't able to eat rice during the whole 15 hours of trip. It would also be understandable if the row right before me wasn't served 20 mins prior to us, and the row right after me wasn't served 15 mins before us. I just couldn't understand how it was arranged. Maybe I should've ask for service right before they start serving meal."
Pros: "That I slept for most of the flight Advil pm is awesome"
Cons: "If you are a smoker find some way to keep your lighters for there are smoking areas. Had no fluid or flints in the knock off zippos I bought in the Philippines they still made me check my book bag which held everything of mine including my coat not cool"
Pros: "For flying economy for 15 hours I can't imagine it gets much better. The food was great, the entertainment was great as well. The staff was quick to do anything you asked. While you don't have all the space in the world, you're still not packed in like on US domestic flights."
Pros: "The plane were nice and clean. most of the crew are very nice the entertainment are great so many different show that we can watch I like that they have noodle cup serving during the flight upon request in case passengers don't get hungry at the time they serve the main meals ."
Cons: "First of all The restroom are so tiny I just wish in the future that the airplan will have bigger restroom it though even 1 people to fit but I have kid and it though with baby ,toddler or overweight people. I usually travel with my son who's 3 I been flying many different airlines and I know in every airlines the most annoying is the tiny restroom I don't even want to go in there. 2nd of all Most of the cabin crew are very nice and very polite some aren't when you hit the service button you are expected someone that willing to help not the face like what the heck you want from me??? It's the long flight I understand and I'm exhausted too I just need to see someone willing to help and with a big smile not grumpy face. One last thing is the food. I'm not sure who's think about the menu for kids I'm not sure it is my son or the food But he never touch the food only thing he ate are the dinner roll I hope I can see some change for kid menu pick somethings that most kid like to eat maybe? Thank you Nadia M"
Pros: "Got upgraded to business - awesome"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly confusing/chaotic"
Cons: "The reading light did not work. The drinking water was cloudy and tasted funny."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals during the flight. The meals that were provided has a salad, main course, fruits and desert. Good amount of leg room, comfortable seating and enterntainments of movie and music."
Cons: "I don't really like the buzzing sound when the plane was in motion (as most planes were, I believe)."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals during the flight. The meals that were provided has a salad, main course, fruits and desert. Good amount of leg room, comfortable seating and enterntainments of movie and music."
Cons: "I don't really like the buzzing sound when the plane was in motion (as most planes were, I believe)."
Pros: "The crew is always helpful"
Cons: "Seats are to small a n d really hard."
Pros: "Great movies, excellent staff"
Cons: "Ran our it breakfast selection"
Cons: "No one went to clean up tolit at the whole trip, no hit towels to clean hands"
Pros: "The service and food are always fantastic. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The ticket price was fantastic too!"
Cons: "Better seat."
Pros: "The staff is very accommodating and the meals served on board were good."
Pros: "The staff was kind and well spoken on the flight."
Cons: "The gate staff was not forthcoming with information and both of my flights were delayed by an hour and no one shared info with passengers."
Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "Boarding delay"
Pros: "On time, hard working staff."
Cons: "The usual dislikes: economy seats, crying babies, body odor of other passengers."
Pros: "The flight was for the most part quite comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting behind me (she could not get comfortable and kept jarring my seat) and the baby crying two rows ahead of \me"
Pros: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Haphazard boarding"
Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were helpful"
Cons: "Food messed with my stomach."
Pros: "The flight went well with no complaints."
Cons: "With Airlines in the US charging for almost everything except the air you breath while on their plane I hate to complain about the meal Turkish provided free but a couple of the items on the tray could have been better."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful, and a couple was very helpful in getting me a better seat because I'm 6'4", and for some reason, the ticket people feel it's ok to put me in the middle between people when the extra room seats seem to be given to short people. 3 Flight Attendants worked hard to find me an open aisle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Air's seats are too small, with horrible leg room, and they always have their planes too hot. They have to do something about it because if you're over 6' tall, it will be a horribly uncomfortable flight, especially when that flight is 13 hours."
Pros: "There was ample leg room in economy. The food was good. Plenty to eat. Good selection of entertainment. Boarding was relatively good."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my U.S. bound plane had to be boarded from the tarmac. I’m assuming it had something to with u.s. security issues with carriers from predominantly Muslim countries. The crew need to check passengers that want to place their feet anywhere except the floor or footrest. I see exactly how fights happen in the planes. It is not ok to place ones feet on someone else’s armrest."
Pros: "Very attentive staff who gave us an extra meal and checked in on us while my girlfriend was sick from food poisoning the day before."
Cons: "Far too few agents at check in. The signage wasn't clear and we waited in line for 15 minutes before realizing we had to be in a different line, for which there was only one attendant checking in for three different flights all leaving at the same time. When there are three layers of security at Attaturk airport, everyone waiting to check in were rightfully worried they may miss their flight."
Pros: "On both flights: -Friendly crew -Flights left and arrived on time -Clean cabin"
Cons: "On both flights: -Cabin was a little too warm, don't like that you can't control temperature at your seat -Only 3 rounds of beverages were served for a 9.5 and 10.5 hour flights- that is less than one drink per every 3 hours and I was very thirsty. It is annoying to have to get up to ask for additional beverages. - Good was ok overall, but better on Istanbul to Boston than Boston to Istanbul"
Pros: "They are literally the BEST airline I have every flown! All the crew are so nice and it is their policy to give you all of the comforts - pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including alcohol), movies, musics, games, meals, snacks and probably more! I don't think they have a way to take money! This was the best flying experience I have ever had! The plane itself was also very nice. There was touchscreen in front of me with all kinds of entertainment plus a USB charger for my phone. They also made sure the closest connecting flight folks had gate attendants waiting for them. The service is phenomenal all the way around!"
Pros: "Since boarding process thru comfort, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Back to travel in the airline without thinking twice about it."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight overall and good lie flat seats. All but one flight attendant were nice and helpful."
Cons: "There was one female crew member who was a bit rude and unpleasant. Not once did she even smile when interacting with us. The rest of them were very nice. Would have liked more variety in entertainment and food/drinks."
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the first meal was great! Staff was friendly and the bathroom was VERY clean and nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the multiple, repetitive announcements. I would suggest that once the guest has picked their language preference on the screen, they then only hear announcements once in their preferred language. Also, our first transfer flight with Turkish allowed for us to carry our personal camera, but then on our main connecting flight we were told that we couldn't have it as a carry on. We would have stowed it in checked baggage had we been previously told. This was incredibly frustrating."
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "Turkish tea."
Cons: "The food was not good"
Pros: "It was a nice and short flight"
Cons: "No entertainment system at the seat."
Pros: "It was not expensive"
Cons: "It is difficult to say anything positive about a 13 hour flight in cattle class. It is just not comfortable."
Cons: "They did not send the walker we brought with our group. It never left Istanbul and as a result one of our group members was severely injured!"
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Food was OK, sometimes good even."
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I haven't been informed about it AT ALL, only when I arrived to the airport. At the Turkish desk, they didn't manage to book me on another flight, so I had to purchase extra two tickets for approx. $600 from two different airline companies. BAD! BAD! BAD! From both Kayak and Turkshit airlines!"
Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, great service and very kind attendants, great food, accommodating comfort for the long trip I had. Definitely the best airline experience I have ever had and all for an incredible price, under $600 to fly from Miami to Rome!"
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Pros: "There was upgrade special on our outbound flight at check in which we took advantage of so we were in business class flight from SFO to Istanbul. That was awesome experience - very comfortable fully reclining seats, gourmet food and drinks, impeccable service, wide entertainment selection, etc. Even on the shorter leg flights we took (i.e. Istanbul to Rome and Dubrovnik to Istanbul) they served food (light snack). We flew economy from Istanbul back to SFO but got exit row seats so plenty of leg room and seats reclined good amount. Again, great service, food and entertainment. All the flights we had on our itinerary were newer planes. Turkish Airlines is so much better than American airlines!"
Pros: "The food.."
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."
Pros: "Great service; lots of food,drinks,considering the short duration of the flight as well as headphones,blanket and a pillow"
Cons: "gerat flight,no complaints."
Cons: "The aircraft wasn't properly cleaned prior. The seat pocket was filled with garbage."
Pros: "Boarding was tedious with like 6 checks of your passport but being safe is never a bad thing. No cost alcohol is always a plus and the food was good. Staff was super nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I intentionally chose an empty row but people kept shuffling. so many folks were standing blocking aisles. I think staff could do a better job to prevent that."
Pros: "I'll start with the food. Authentic Turkish cuisine with multiple options. The entertainment trumps the food with dozens of movies. Let's face it, this isn't Emirates, but you can't go wrong with 15+ recent movies for a 10 hour flight. I watched three and even got some sleep."
Cons: "Service was subpar, but this was a full flight. Boarding was pretty terrible with 3 security lines. The lines themselves were not a problem, but they did not provide nearly enough room at the gate for this, and the boarding started 2 hours before scheduled take off. Personally, I'd rather not sit on a plane for an hour before having to sit through a 10 hour flight, but we were not given a choice."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul. We did not know the gate number until one hour before departure, because there were only 3 monitors in the area that we sat in and there are so many flights, so the flight did not appear on those monitors. Only the one main monitor in in the center of the airport is large enough and there are not seats in that area."
Pros: "the food was amazing and the people super nice! it was my first time using Turkish airlines and i loved it!"
Pros: "They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all)."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "Great entertainment system. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "The passenger is treated w courtesy staff go beyond to assist accommodate. A definite GoTo again"
Pros: "Food was really good. Enjoyed every bit of it. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The Crew could have been more friendly, I was disappointed by the service of the crew."
Pros: "Great food and crew"
