Pros: The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway.
Cons: Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?

Pros: The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway.
Cons: Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?

Pros: Lady “Setora” at the check-in was amazing. Very nice, kind and helpful person.
Cons: Food service .. we where very hungry and thirsty during the flight. They barely give you some snacks .

Cons: This was my first time with Turkish airline , the airbus from Chicago to İstanbul was quite old and seats were not comfortable while the plan form İstanbul to Islamabad was perfect . Thank you Turkish airline

Pros: amazing
Cons: nothing

Cons: No coffee no tea. Disgusting.

Cons: Foddd no gud

Pros: The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional.
Cons: I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed.

Pros: Convenience

Pros: The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Great food options, very tasty. Crew was attentive, polite and professional.

Pros: Everything with the airline was just fine. I’m overall very happy with the flight.
Cons: The only thing that really made the flight not so pleasant were the really bad smelling passengers on board. People, please, take a shower before boarding on a passenger flight.

Pros: Plan was hold, crew was not helpful. I requested a wheel chair and never got it. Flight was delayed and no assistance was given to figure out missed connections.
Cons: Fix the above. Will not fly Turkish airlines again!

Pros: The crew are very nice and the service is really good.
Cons: The seats are not so comfortable, the leg rest is just in the way and not useful for me. The PA is overused which is annoying when trying to watch a movie.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me.

Pros: Food on the second leg ( Istanbul to Delhi ) of the journey was good.
Cons: Poor Boarding In Chicago, no lines were formed to let people board in an organized fashion. Insufficien/inappropriate food ( BEEF Prevented choices ) - Eliminate beef from your food choices. Many people like me can eat Non vegetarian meals like chicken, fish , EXCEPT BEEF Ran out of the Salmon fish dish. I was given a snacking cheese sandwich instead! This would not have happened if you had selected other than a beef dish! Cramped seating. The airlines greed shows in picking out the seat placement design. The plane had extremely limited knee room. I'm five foot five inches tall and my knees were almost touching the seat in front.

Pros: Once my wife reached the gate, having left me behind at security, Turkish Airlines waited and were patient with us, the last to board the plane. The food and plane and bathrooms were all without any problems.
Cons: We had a 80 minute layover in Frankfurt. Turkish Airlines should make note that this is not sufficient for making a connection. 1. The terminals require extensive walking. Not a problem except for time. 2. Security entering the terminal was seriously understaffed. There were a hundred security personnel, but thousands of passengers. The line stretched for half a mile. 3. Cutting, disorganization, mismanagement, lack of organization, and airport layout all contributed to making this a very stressful hour for us.

Cons: Boarding was delaeyd 5 hour's ,Very very bag experience, the trailer baby and car seat i waited more than an hour, together with more people, were not found

Pros: The service was very nice and courteous
Cons: The seats don’t match up to the comfort level and privacy of the other airlines

Cons: The AC wasn’t turned on for 2 hours of passengers being on the plane and it was easily 100 degrees inside. Everyone was hot and miserable. The seats were also extremely close together. I have never been so uncomfortable on a long haul flight.

Pros: Easy check in
Cons: Please include sea food in your menu

Pros: Nothing isn’t good flight
Cons: I don’t have any thing to say everything are bad even Airport too bad to find WI Fi also has unclean bathrooms over there

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Nothing

Cons: Lost my baggage, refused to give another ticket when getting to Istanbul late made me miss my next flight. Had to sit 10 hours and buy another ticket from another airline to make My destination a day late.

Pros: Turkish airlines has great service and crew in plane.
Cons: Hi, The flight was great. However my layover at airport lounge was long. I didn't like their (Turkish Business lounge)policy for not letting me have the room to sleep as the layover was more than 7hrs. I was told to ask for a hotel at reception. When i did, they said that they dont have any hotel inside and cant take me to ourside hotel too. The staff at reception of lounge was not courteous either. I only needed the room to sleep for 3 or 4 hrs. Anyway, the flight itself was great, no complaints

Pros: The service, food, convenience of a direct flight to Istanbul
Cons: The entertainment system in my seat did not work (they offered to change my seat but I declined). Also the WiFi was spotty. However, I always enjoy flying with Turkish Airlines due to the excellent service and delicious food.

Pros: I sat in coach but was treated like I was in first class. Hot towels. Entrees were very excellent. The food was above what I expected coach meals to be from my experiences flying different carriers to over 8 different countries. The customer service was amazing! The lady flight attendant for my section was very attentive and friendly. When I came out of the bathroom, I accidentally interrupted one male flight attendant from doing his job, he politely gestured which reassured me that he would be right with me when he was done with what he was doing. I asked him if they had any heartburn or antiacids available which they didn't. These 2 interactions with the flight attendants made the flight very enjoyable.
Cons: I was in couch and in the middle seat. I usually get the aisle or window so it was a hard adjustment to sleep in the middle seat because I didn't have leg room and couldn't lean my body against anything so I had to shift often to avoid my bottom from feeling numb.

Pros: Comfort
Cons: They lost one of our bags.

Pros: The service was impeccable!
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Crew service was amazing. 2 meals on the long trip, 1 meal on the short flight. Very satisfied

Pros: Boarding was smooth
Cons: Food needs improvement and staff should be more friendly.

Pros: Flight attendants are professional and efficient, and the aircraft is clean and has an excellent entertainment center for all passengers.
Cons: Rows are too close, with my knees pressed against the seat in front of me. That is misery for the 10-hour flight from Chicago to Istanbul. We had a much better experience when we flew Turkish Airlines a few years ago. Sad!

Cons: Crew was slow to pick up trays.

Pros: food was excellent
Cons: Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner.

Pros: There was a lot to choose entertainment wise.
Cons: We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. 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: That was good every thing, thank you.
Cons: Nathing wrong.

Pros: Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free.
Cons: More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason.

Pros: * Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!
Cons: Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people

Pros: Turkish Delight, food, seating that had leg room for my husbands long legs (we arranged our seats well in advance of the flight) .
Cons: Was hot before taking off then had cold air blowing directly on my neck. For most of the trip it was comfortable.

Pros: Turkish Airlines is the best airlines we have every flown on in our international travels. The food is excellent. The service is excellent.

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.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: I have traveled a lot during my life. The flight crew on this flight was the best I have ever seen.

Pros: The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments.
Cons: The Boeing 777 had the new, smaller seats. No control of overhead airflow among other things. Wish they still had the old Airbus A330's and 340''s.

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: Leg room was great

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
