Better boarding system than just 4 zones. Within each zone, boarding needs to be done with specific rows at a time.
More Bollywood and Telugu movies, food options
My luggage was left at doha nd flight landed houston. Horrible experince i had this time.
Please refer to comments on previous flight.
Qatar airways Customer service is terrible in some countries especially in Iraq, very unprofessional, helpless, and very rude!
The three people behind us continued kicking our seats and after two attempts to resolve, they got aggressive and loud. Very uncomfortable and frustrating for 15 hours flying.

Pros: "The crew was very cheerful and helpful even though I was puking my guts out on a long flight with a lot of turbulence"
Cons: "It was an insanely long and pukey flight. The airsick bags have this seal that you have to tear off before you can open it which my son discovered a little too late."
Cons: "I was moved from the front to the very back upon checking in at the gate due to "Weight and Balance" issues. I was able to move back to my original seat once in the air, but there was no forewarning of this even with advanced purchased tickets. Just a hassle since this flight was long and all I wanted to do was get some rest."
Pros: "Smooth flying regardless of the air wake turbulence, excellent treatment from flight attendants. I felt safe during the flight."

I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."
Pros: "Every thing is good in Qatar airways"

Pros: "Great Cabin Crew, the pilot was extremely talented and landed very well at a low speed so as to not wake everyone in Nagpur up."

Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"
Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The electronics ban on US-bound flights was handled poorly in Doha, resulting in multiple passes through the security check for many passengers, including two in my party. It left a bad impression that lingered, unfortunately."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable for economy class for a journey as long as these ."

Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."
Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"
Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as the other 3 legs of the trip (Houston-Doha, Doha-Kathmandu and Bengaluru-Doha) The hand rests on these planes didn't go all the way up making it less comfortable to be travelling on a 16 hour flight with a toddler."
Pros: "Every thing likely"
Pros: "The crew. Hana was the best. She is one of the crew members. The Korean female."
Cons: "the person next to me was load and annoin. Seat was crammed and was not comfortable AT All."

Pros: "The crew on the airplane were fantastic. They arranged an aisle seat, which I requested upon checking in."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat and I was assured when I checked in that I have an aisle seat. But this was not correct. The crew on the airplane did their best to accommodate my request and they were successful. So the mistake was that of the crew in Berlin where I started my flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Pros: "Movie selection is great."
Cons: "Flight attendants seem undetertrained."
Cons: "The Attention is not as good as it was 4 years ago, the food terrible. And last but not least many luggage didn’t arrived."
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "One of my luggage is still missing"
Cons: "Food was below expectation No TV or entertainment"
Pros: "Movies, I had leg room. Nice friendly staff .."
Cons: "Internet would not work"
Pros: "I got a return ticket from Houston to Lagos, the first leg of my trip went pretty well, no hassle at all, the staff and crew were great and professional."
Cons: "But the second leg of my trip which was Lagos back to Houston was horrible, the Turkish Airlines employees at the Murtala Mohammed International airport Lagos were the worst ever, unprofessional, rude and lack basic knowledge of boarding. Decided to do their own thing rather than what the airline allows. It's almost like they lacked training or just don't want to learn. No accountability whatsoever as one of the employee said "it's not like it's gonna affect my job anyways". Poor poor terrible customer service, no courtesy, no etiquette. I can go on and on but ain't nobody got time for their negativity."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats are very tie"
Cons: "late departed ,no food,"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent- choice of movies, music and ground cameras,"
Cons: "Food was average; no snacks or snack service which made for a long time between meals on a 12 hour flight. The flight purchased was from Venice to Houston with a connection in Istanbul. The required passport recheck and gate location at opposite ends of the terminal made this a mad dash to catch the flight. It was too little time for comfort."
Pros: "They run a quality airline, inexpensive and a lot of direct flights to a lot of locations."
Cons: "This flight was a terrible experience and the longest day of my life!! That having been said, Turkish airlines had little control over most of it. I could tell the staff was just as tired of the long day as I was, but they held it together and performed adequately. I thought we were all going to die on the landing! I don't know what happened, but I was waiting any moment for the 777 to just roll and go up in flames! It took 1 hour and a half to get our checked bags. Don't know if there is a way to speed that up, but it was the icing on the cake after having spent 16 hours on the plane."
Pros: "The only things that going for Turkish Airline is the cabin crew (lord knows they try), food and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 2 hrs, that in itself is not an issues, traffic delays do happen. However, the fact that captain choose not to run air conditioning to save fuel and main cabin, even after numerous requests, was 95 degrees for 2 hrs combined with the fact that airline did not submitted travel information to US Border Protection that also added another 1.5 hrs to clear customs is totally unacceptable... Although THY has the most direct route to/from Moldova from Houston, in the future, I'll most likely will spend more money and more time just to avoid it..."
Pros: "seats, entertainment"
Cons: "food. only one non-veg option"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair flyers should get first assistant"
Pros: "Entertainment on board was the best part. Food is decent."
Cons: "Worst customer service I've ever had in an airport at Attaturk. Turkish airline staff was horribly rude, wouldn't acknowledge their mistakes, very uninforming and all of it to pretty much force you to pay the airline more money in penalty fees for changing flight arrangements and new ticket purchases. And be careful THEY DON'T have any announcement on the intercom system at Attaturk (I had no clue as to that being the case there, nor have I ever been at an airport that doesn't). No boarding announcement, no gate change announcement, no nothing.....and if and when you miss a flight because you didn't know the gate changed while you're sitting at what you thought was your gate and no one bothered to let you know (including the person who checked your boarding pass when you came into that gate area, it's down hill from there! They will tell you it's your fault and not give a dam* what you say to argue otherwise....and......if you don't pay the penalty they dictate to change your flight ($1114 on a $780 ticket in my case so I purchased another ticket on Turkish air on my own for $236 to get me where I was going), they WILL cancel your return flight without telling you, at which point you will have to buy a new ticket to get back home and they end up getting the money out of you regardless. This was an absolute nightmare of a trip, couple with being treated like dirt by everyone at the airport. I will not ever again fly Turkish Air if I can help it."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Good food Great entertainment options USB to charge phone at the seat"
Cons: "Late boarding Late arrival"
Pros: "The security measures"
Pros: "Loved the service, comfort, entertainment, etc. All of this was top notch and the 13 hour flight went by very quickly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare. I blame my country more than the airline for the new security procedures needed but I literally went through 4 security checkpoints to get on the plane. Not only that, I had to give up my iPad and my $4000 camera to checked luggage at the gate (not my luggage but theirs). Again...not the airlines fault but it was an absolute cluster F...."
Cons: "Seats on 777 are to close. Both times I have flown Turkish air, we sat on the plane for well over a hour on the ground before we pushed back from the gate."
Cons: "Very good fantastic business class seats awesome legroom And again great service"
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Cons: "Their audio system is very bad."
Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."
Pros: "Overall everything was good"
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: "The food was excellent (dinner and breakfast). The service was also exceptional."
Cons: "Nothing...great flight and great crew."
Cons: "Did not fly"
Pros: "Courteous staff.istanbul"
Cons: "Istanbul airport is dirty, bath rooms smell. Food m shopping is good"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and respectful"
Cons: "I asked to be upgraded to the first class since I wasn't feeling well. There were many vacant seats and I was willing to pay the difference but I did not given any response other than they couldn't do it while boarding."
Pros: "price and food"
Cons: "Customer service need to get way better"
Pros: "Space inside the plane. There were empty seats that increased the comfort."
Cons: "Lack of courtesy inside the airport and in the plane. Countless passport checkups, poor communication during the flight."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."
Cons: "I can't find my baggage.."
Pros: "When we couldn't fly United (due to cost) we were not sure what to expect from Turkish Airlines since we didn't know anyone who had flown it before. It was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed the flight. We felt like we received first class treatment in the economy section of the plane. From warm hand towels, beautiful menus for meals and beverages available, a toiletry bag and much more. The inflight entertainment was awesome. Love the large screen and the touch screen abilities. So many great choices."
Cons: "The temperature of the cabin changed drastically from being very hot to very cold in a short matter of time. The boarding process was also not organized well at all as we lined up in our groups, but people did not follow this so although we were group A, somehow people from lower groups were boarding before us. The seats were a bit hard."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."
Great airlines to fly with
I had my Covid test done 72 hours before departure to my Dubai flight. At the counter I was told that the 72 hours is at arrival in Dubai. So I was not able to board. This does not make sense because no airline requires/counts the 72 hours at arrival. So I had to purchase another ticket with another airline.
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food variety could be an order improvement add"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Neither of my bags arrived with the flight. One bag came a day and a half later. The other bag came three days later. A little bit of inconvenience, especially since they wouldn't deliver my bags. I had to go back to the airport twice to pick up my bags that they lost."

Cons: "Overall, food, appearance, cleanness of the flight and the toilet, no entertainment, comfort, size of the cabin and the seats, communication from the cabin crew and delay without apologizing or telling us the passengers what was the issue, it was one of the poorest flight I have ever used."

Pros: "The juice box they gave us before take off"

Pros: "I loved the food - some of the best I've ever had in the air! There was a plentiful array of free movies and TV shows available for free. There was room to stretch out in the seats."
Cons: "I found the process of the layover in Amman to be confusing. Apparently, I could not get a free hotel for my layover. I tried to use the Crown Lounge as well but was told I could only use it (and pay to use it) during certain hours, which was confusing."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional. They assisted with boarding, serving meals and drinks in an efficient and courteous manner. Also, the entertainment system was excellent! New academy award winning movies and a great assortment of other movies available."
