I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"

Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "The food and crew."
Cons: "The intertainment system on the Doha to Nairobi flight had old communal TV screens."
Pros: "Helpful friendly crew, reasonable ticket prices."
Cons: "Luggage was delayed by 24 hours, customer service desk in Johannesburg EXTREMELY helpful, in Kigali they were clueless. Transit area very crowded, humid and stuffy."

Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"

Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "The crew members are very polite and professional"
Cons: "The food is not very nice, the drink is don’t taste so great either . The airline seats are too small"

Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Pros: "The planes and shuttles are nice and clean, and the staff are pleasant. I had a long layover in Kigali and the airline gave me accommodation and a food voucher (totally unexpected). Will definitely fly RwandAir again."
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."

Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth. I got window seat as requested."
Cons: "My bags were mistagged and almost sent to Lagos instead of Nairobi. The agent noticed the error after the second bag was tagged. He went to search for my first bag that already went down the ramp. Although I gave him the exact description of the bag (purple hard case), he retagged the wrong one (red soft case). Good thing he took a photo. Third try was the charm but shouldn't have happened in the first place. Agents need to be more diligent with where they are sending bags and to double- and triple-check before he luggage is sent down the ramps."
Pros: "My sister and I were travelling to and from Tanzania through Kigali. The crew was great and our flight was easy."
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very welcoming and helpful. You feel safe and you get to see the pilot who is going to take you to your destination."
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"
Pros: "Very slow check in. Bit slow and chaotic at gate. Pleasant enough service but not excetional. Smooth flight. Informative pilot. Silly short bus ride to terminal. Very very long wait for baggage."
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement"
Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Food was beef brochettes, one of the best economy meals I have had. Wine was very good, from South Africa."
Cons: "Seats were not adjustable. It may be that I was in front of the exit row, but I looked and didn't see anyone leaning back anywhere. On the other hand, flight was only 1 hr 20 minutes."
Pros: "the flight got me to Gaborone on Monday morning"
Cons: "Person in Kigali checked my bag to Johannesburg, not Gaborone. Flight was delayed one hour. Slept on a chair in Johannesburg airport for three hours."
Pros: "Everything was excellent, service, cabin, food."
Cons: "First announcement cockpit was just before landing. Would have liked some information before takeoff and once in the air"
Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"
Pros: "In general, it was a pleasant flight from Entebbe to Kigali. The Bombardier was in pristine condition. There was no food offered (the flight is 45 minutes) and there is no entertainment available. The crew was pleasant and the seat comfortable (I am 5'11). I would fly again with RwandAir."
Cons: "There was nothing significant enough taken into consideration the characteristics of this flight and the construction in Entebbe."
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Food needs to be addressed"
Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable business class seat with lots of room, good breakfast"
Cons: "No priority checkin for business class and no priority boarding for business class. I don't those are even that hard to organize . Airport ground contractors haven't been instructed to provide service to business class?"
Pros: "Free wifibat the airport and the charging stations"

On time to a t. The lead flight attendant Cameron was so kind helping us with luggage as we got on with our two little ones and then gave our son a treat as we headed off.

We were confused with our assigned seat.

At least DA has a snack choice, but my daughter was disappointed about the lack of hot cocoa!

Very friendly and relaxed service

The flight from Sydney to Adelaide was never ticketed and I was stranded in Sydney! Worst experience ever!

It was so smooth…it was so nice to hsve no issues flying. This was the first time in a while that everything was effortless Thank you

Good but delta needs to be more upbeat about the boarding process in Atlanta

There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.

Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "With flying there is nothing perfect all the time. I was able to sleep on the flight and had a place for my carry-on luggage. I wish unboarding was mad less complicated."
Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"
Pros: "Competent crew"
Cons: "Too many people, especially children running up and down aisles during flight. Not adhering to COVID guidance. None of the crew addressed this ☹️"
Cons: "Communicating take off time!!! It changed multiple times by one three hours and ended up flying the next day!"
Pros: "The Delta staffed were friendly and greeted me with a smile."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane kept going in and out. It was warm most of the trip. The lady that was sitting in front of me talked on her phone until the plane went up in the sky. She would hide it when the flight attended passed by."
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."

Pros: "There was an agent named Christopher working at the Delta terminal in San Diego, and he was tremendous to work with."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "Seats still tight"
Cons: "Ran out of fuel and had to divert to Birmingham. Disappointed. Turned into a 3-4 h delay. When we got to ATL our gate was occupied. All in all very poor service. Delta is better than this."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendant in first class. Unfortunately I was not in first class"
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the obese old man (I, too, am an obese old woman) as I saw it toward some of my cabin mates."
Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Friendly, hard working flight crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Not necessarily their fault, but they rarely communicated why or what to expect. Despite signing up for SMS notifications, I'd find out from Kayak more than I did from Delta."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good price. Upgraded to comfort seating without charge since I'm a Delta sky priority flier"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"

I will never change airline company the best

Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "too expensive for flights"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My seat wasn't working properly and wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was professional. The food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "It is too cramped in the toilets and seating area."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food was late and terrible seating arrangements were horrible they placed my infant in a different section don’t recommend it if you are old or traveling with family"
Pros: "The flight was excellent. Thank you."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Narrow and hard."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I sent my old grandparents trusted them to take care of them but they were treated very badly and had a horrible trip"
Pros: "Food, service, movie selection, wine selection, seats in business class."
Cons: "Unimpressive selection of scotch when compared to competitors."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "My seat."
Pros: "Service, professionalism"
Cons: "Food is good but very bland."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Narrow space between seats"
Pros: "Love the food, service and movies."
Cons: "Seat adjustments on both our seats in Business Class were not working!!"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room especially between Houston and Istanbul fo"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The ground and flight crews were outstanding. Boarding was easy in Houston. I got to see the flight crew handle a medical emergency and saw that they were well prepared, efficient, and concerned. The food and entertainment were fine. I felt like the seat space was better than on British which I often use. I had an empty seat next to me however. I was impressed that the flight crew moved a taller gentleman to a premium (exit) seat to accommodate his extra tall stature. He didn't ask, but they wanted him to be comfortable."
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul is pretty manageable. They changed the gate on us twice for the connection, which meant a bit of walking. But the crowd was pretty manageable compared to LHR."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines sells you a long layover business class ticket but then cannot deliver the promised hotel as American passport holders cannot leave the airport So enjoy your 22 hour layover in the gate area This is fraud This change in visa for USA passport holders was known for weeks but they chose not to let customers know when booking the tickets Kayak You should take this up with Turkish Airlines as this is blatantly false advertising and you are supporting this fraud on your site by not highlighting the restrictions"
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Paying only half of what other USA airlines offered we had a one stop trip from (IAH) Houston to (TLV) Tel Aviv and were served two meals with offerings of other food if needed. I don't know what was served but it was good yet very different from what we eat in Texas. Then we had a 2 1/2 hour layover in (IST) Istanbul Turkey which gave us plenty of time to get off the plane, shuttle to the terminal gate then walk around the airport for about an hour before heading to the next gate for our connecting flight. The crew was very pleasant and the flight very smooth."
Cons: "The landing in Instanbul Turkey was very poorly done, by far the worst I've ever experienced but the rest of the flight and connecting Turkish Airlines flight to Tel Aviv was great. The seats are very cramped but not much different than any other economy seat I've had on any other USA airline. The price of the ticket more than made up for the seat."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The ride was smooth"
Cons: "The food was ok....Not an option for vegetarian"
Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."
Pros: "The crew was good and courteous. The food was pretty good.great entertainment options."
Cons: "Could not access the wifi."
Pros: "Movie selection was great"
Cons: "The seats were stained and especially very tight on legroom."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "all of it"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Cons: "The country"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "The food was rubbish. I ordered Hindu veg meal. The food was just plain and there was no glavors at all."
Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"
Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."
Pros: "That I heard great things about Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Staff at the gate and on the plane were rude. At the gate, I asked if there was an isle seat or an emergency row seat available (because I have long legs and long feet) and he said he would check and see. Well, he failed to inform me if any of the seats were available, so I sat in a window seat to Istanbul and a middle seat to Venice. I had to pay $160 for an extra bag to Venice. I asked if the airline allowed military members to check a third bag for free, I was laughed at, and told that US military members get charged more because we're not in the Turkish military. So as you can see, this trip started off horribly. My flight attendant seemed like she was having a horrible day because her attitude and customer service was bad."
Pros: "The food on board was better than average."
Cons: "The whole operation was shabbily done. Because of a Turkish airlines' flight delay, we wouldn't be able to make our connecting flight to Venice from Istanbul. So the agents booked me and my traveling companions on DIFFERENT flights the next day, long after we had paid to be getting to Venice. It took a long time and a lot of work on my part to get our tickets corrected to all be on the same flight, and the whole thing was very unprofessional. The lower price for Turkish airlines is not worth it when you have to spend an entire day of your vacation sitting in the Turkish Airlines airport hotel because Turkish Airlines can't properly get you to your destination on time."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great. The crew were very courteous."
Cons: "It was so hot, nearly unbearable. Not sure why, maybe a one time thing, but definitely very irritating. The food was mediocre at best. As well, the tray of food kept sliding off the retractable table. Seats were pretty cramped."
Pros: "Comfortable plane Good food Excellent entertainment options Friendly service"
Cons: "Turkish flights always seem to be late in boarding"
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Pros: "The seats not very comfortable. The staf not friendly at all."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Good food and excellent service from the crew."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Amman boarding was a mess"
Pros: "Ecellent food, service on board, on time departures,"
Cons: "Huge Plane and only 3 WC"
Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
Cons: "Flight from Houston to Istanbul got delayed; Turkish Airlines representative confirmed that flight will catch up on time and I can reach my connecting flight on time, however changed my ticket for the connecting flight so I would leave Istanbul next day - without informing me about the change.Once I realized changed "date/time" in the ticket (VS what I booked) and complained about it, all Turkish Airline representatives were acting line they don't understand English...this is unacceptable. I ended up spending the night in the Airport."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "I was so cramped and I'm only 6'. My back has hurt for days after that flight."
Pros: "Great food and crew"
