One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."

Pros: "Everything! Voted best airlines in Europe for a reason!"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."
Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers). They have ample restrooms and they are split throughout the coach cabin, which made lines for the restroom almost nonexistent. Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."
Cons: "Coach seats provide minimal leg room, and even less when seats are reclined."
Pros: "The service was very respectful and friendly."
Cons: "My volume didn't work at the seat I was sitting at"
Pros: "The food and staff were terrific"
Cons: "It was more cramped than other long haul flights, and the temperature changed from hot to cold throughout the flight with no working air"
Pros: "Friendly crew and clean aircraft."
Cons: "I was traveling with two family members with wheelchairs and gate transfer at IST was a nightmare. It was very slow, but finally we were at the right gate. Handicapped access must be improved at the IST airport."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "1- Flight was delayed for 2 hours although weather conditions were perfect,, OK, sometimes it happens. No apology or explanation we're given 2- Entertainment screen did not work for the 10 hour flight. Told the attendant multiple times. It did not function in all the seats not only mine"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and was broken. I was not happy about this as it was a 10 hour flight, and could not get comfortable"
Pros: "FOOD,, CREW ATTITUDE & TIMEING."
Cons: "AS BOVE"
Pros: "New, clean, and outstanding seat layout gives lots of room. Flew a 777. Crew was very friendly and efficient. This is more roomy than any U.S. or British 747 I used to fly. The person in front of me fully reclined their seat and it had no impact on my comfort. I am 6 feet tall and this was great."
Pros: "Good service and good food"
Cons: "Small seating for such a long flight, but overall not bad"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Everything went very well. The food was fantastic. Just too warm on the plane."
Pros: "Wonderful flight with spacious seats."
Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."
Pros: "Not a lot of options as far as the entertainment was concerned. The food was really good and the staff really courteous. However the seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "No leg space Not a lot of TV shows"
Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew...i forgot to reserve my vegetariano meal, but the crew provided for me.."
Pros: "Very good service, food, equipment and timeliness"
Cons: "entertainment, comfort"

Cons: "Flight serviced by LOT"
Cons: "Boarding was a little less orderly than I am used to, but everything else was great service for the price"
Cons: "Better communication on board. It was difficult to hear and to understand announcements, which were few."
Cons: "On top of what I rated, the flight was delayed by 1 hour in Chicago, enough to miss the flight to Sofia and have to spend the night in Warsaw. It’s been one terrible experience. A lot of things can be better. The ratings are pretty descriptive."
Pros: "Crew member were nice people and helpful"
Cons: "Information about delay of flight, food and boarding process"
Pros: "yes yes excellent"
Cons: "Employees at airport in Budapest didn’t speak English, also went to restroom and there was no access for handicapped people, I’m on wheelchair. I will never again go that way, very bad experience."

Cons: "Not put me in middle sit never again"
Pros: "Fast flight ,crew was good"
Cons: "Flight delays, late boarding, better service"

Pros: "Very friendly crew , free beer"
Cons: "being 100% on time with take off"

Cons: "Entertainment system locked up and did not work. I summoned crew but they never responded 3 times"
Pros: "Crew was fine, plain was fine"
Cons: "Departure was late one hour, I missed my flight connection to Bulgaria"
Pros: "The cabin staff was very friendly and attentive. The boarding process was efficient (the long time it took was owed to the large crowd entering the plane in a Boeing 787), the entertainment programme is not overwhelming, but adequate."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost three hours at a most uninspiring airport. The information on the delay came rather late. Although I managed to reach my connecting flight, my luggage did not. (It was sent after, though, with the next machine and reached my late the same night in the hotel.)"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "Flight attendants a little cold but not nasty"
Cons: "Limited leg room and cramped quarters when person in front of you leans back."
Pros: "All stuff members spoke good English."

Cons: "Flight from Chicago was delayed for two hours. Missed my connection flight to Odessa and still in Warsaw waiting for my flight to Odessa."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane was a little late,which was OK. The bigger problem is the lost luggage."
Pros: "The flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible at the airport from staff . They did not let us board , even though we got there on time from Chicago and people were still in line. We waiting 6 hours , and the flight was delayed another 1 hour and a 1/2.. customer service did not accommodate us in our time in Poland . We had to pay additional fees for transportation from airport to hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 8 Hours. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Service is good, flight crew are helpful and attentive, meals are good. Entertainment is good."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed by an hour so boarding became frantic and stressful. We had already left the gate and the plane was taxiing and some people were still not sitting in seats - I suppose that's fellow passengers for you - and they were told by flight attendants to get into their seats. Economy seats are very cramped so it's an uncomfortable and probably not healthy experience for that long. The flight delay meant that there was high stress in Warsaw to make the connecting flight. Why transit passengers need to be subjected to security checks and clearance I do not understand. We have just got off an international flight - transit passengers surely aren't combined with new passengers who have not been through security in Warsaw."
Pros: "LOT does great with boarding, food, and entertainment. The food is very tasty and plentiful. The boarding process is smooth and the people are very nice. And the selection of movies and TV is very broad, and the equipment works well."
Cons: "The crew on the plane are short with passengers and don't seem to go out of their way to make passengers comfortable. This lack of effort stands out very much in the background of super-uncomfortable seats on Dreamliners. There is relatively much less space available for passengers between rows and between seats themselves. It makes long flights exceptionally painful, especially for people who are not extra small or young. I have gotten to the point that I choose to fly different airlines even if that means a bit more money and an extra stop because I cannot handle 8 or 9 hours on the Dreamliners, especially when the flights are full."
Pros: "Very caring flight attendants, awesome service."
Cons: "Took too long to get our luggage."
Pros: "Keeping announcements to minimum hence allowing for silence and sleep was great. Personally, being served a meal around midnight seems unnecessary. My preference would be for a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for long-haul flight. I survived, though."
Pros: "NOTHING...!!!!!! ZEROOO STARS....very unprofesionall...., this was my first and last time traveling with this aholes..........!!!"
Cons: "I don’t wana waste my time anymore talking about this f...... joke of company.......necer again"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic. Switched gates (m5 on boarding pass, actually m4. Shoud have announced or left a note."
Pros: "Everything from the flight, food & service exceeded expectations. Business class was exceptional."
Pros: "I like that I flew on a modern aircraft with good amenities."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours. Check in took longer than it has ever taken."
Cons: "Missed boarding by 3 min"
Cons: "Please note that Economy class requires separate luggage fee (70 EUR in airport) even if customer service confirmed by phone that your class includes it."
Cons: "No new movies or no tv shows to watch on a 9hr flight. If I knew I would have downloaded movies on my phone or on a usb stick(u have the possibility of using those). Horrible food, cannot even describe! No free alcohol. If you pay cash for the alcohol you end up paying double as if you pay with Credit card. I paid for 3 drinks, were brought only 2 and when I asked for the 3rd one they didn't understand what I want. Crew speaks only polish, they have little knowledge of English language. They are not helpful and they don't care about passengers! Delays on every flight, Friday LOT airline doesn't have to many flights out of Warsaw! Be aware, in the event of a delay and loosing your connecting flight you might end up spending a night in Warsaw. I WILL NEVER USE LOT AGAIN and I will make sure to spread the word!!!"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm; a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The Dreamliner was a nice aircraft and the entertainment screens were in great condition."
Cons: "Seating was tight as usual on all planes. The seat cushion was worn down and was hard. Crew were not overly friendly but weren't rude either. They won't be winning any customer service awards. They didn't offer drinks as often as United has especially on an international flight. They need to offer water more frequently."
Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Wide, comfy seats, nice crew, good food"
Cons: "Poor selection of movies"
Cons: "Nor enough beverage for such a long flight Ice cube?"
Pros: "Everything was great, except the food which was a bit weird."
Pros: "Very attentive staff. Comfortable seats. I fell asleep somewhere in Canada and woke up in Brussels. Amazing."
Cons: "The plane was seven hours late/"
Pros: "The crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Turbulences over the Great Lakes, but nobody can control that!"
Cons: "We had 2 people traveling. The first person thought the food was very poor. Her other flight overseas was with Lufthansa and so she expected food similar to their flight. It was not at all. The quality of foods was dramatically different and Lufthansa even offered complimentary wine & beer with the meal. The second person needed a gluten-free menu due to gluten sensitivity. However, her meals also came dairy-free, so she wasn't even given real butter. She was offered no salad dressings so her salad was eaten dry. The chicken was extremely dry. The 2nd meal (breakfast-like) was horrible dry bread with cucumber, lettuce and tomato -- no meat, no cheese, no protein at all! The regular meals were also given yogurt, where she just got cut up fruit. Protein is extremely important in each meal and LOT failed to provide this. When asking a steward whether she could at least get a yogurt like the regular passengers, they were unable to help her."
Cons: "Delayed flight Lost baggage No one could explain what to do.."
Pros: "Comfortable, great service and leg room, lots of movie and tv choices. Great flight!"
Pros: "I really liked flying polish airlines. Staff all around was excellent."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed their headphones to watch movies."
