Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"
Pros: "The flight was excellent, and the team worked very well."
Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"
Pros: "Delays occur, but reputable, customer service oriented airlines do their best to remedy to the disruption and minimize the inconvenience. Reputable, customer service oriented airlines don't leave their passenger stranded."
Cons: "Reputable airlines know ahead of time which passengers are at risk of missing their connection and have someone waiting at the arrival gate to quickly take them to the next departure gate, while the next flight waits a few extra minutes (because we only missed boarding by a few minutes)"
Pros: "Food, new plane"
Cons: "Poor boarding process"
Pros: "Great crew, was at gate to help us refirect to later flight. Onboard crew provided extra of meal due to allergies."
Cons: "Fish always served, I'm allergic and this is not a special meal request in USA, a lesson for myself."
Pros: "Excellent service. Very tasty food."
Cons: "Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system."
Pros: "It was a smooth trip"
Cons: "Boarding a bus to be taken to the plane It’s probably not unusual in Turkey but that was a first for me In all fairness it was a high anxiety moment for me with all the unknowns I was facing but I appreciate Turkish Air nonetheless"
Pros: "Boarding in time"
Cons: "Selected food was not provided, old airplane, no entertainment"
Pros: "They put me on a partner airline after causing my missed connection, so I witnessed nothing good about Turkish Airlines flight at this time."
Cons: "After a long saga with no help in making my connecting flight on the same Turkish Airlines, they gave me the boarding pass and told me my luggage was fine to carry on board for the partner airline they put me on. At the gate, that partner airline's reps (or Istanbul airport employees -- not sure) yelled at me that I had too much to carry on board and forced me to hastily check a bag with personal items I did not plan on checking. Needless to say, that also delayed my reaching the final destination even further because I had to wait for the luggage and it was already 1:00 in the morning in an unfamiliar and rough foreign city."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Waited on the plane for a while before takeoff"
Pros: "todo la gente la comida la chltura me encanto esta ciudad espero visitarla pronto"
Cons: "The process to get into the plane at Istambul was horrendous. It took forever to process the passengers."
Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "I'll recommend Turkish airline to anyone because of the cabin crew and the pilots. I enjoyed the service and we had a safe trip. I also like the entertainment service. I was able to watch the live TV news to keep me update."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. It's taste sour. The foods needs improvement."
Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Ground staff very unhelpful and arrogant. Wanted to upgrade to business class and the representative who served me was very rude and unhelpful. Boarding was through buses which was inefficient and messy. My trip was 11 hours of flying time. Economy seating is super tight and legroom awful. For long haul flights they must be more generous in terms of seat size and legroom."
Pros: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had internationally"
Cons: "The heavy turbulence but, that's beyond their control"
Pros: "The check in process was good. The agent was very helpful and pleasant. The food was actually just as good as the Delta flight from Minneapolis to Amsterdam."
Cons: "Older equipment. A little bit tight. But not too bad."
Pros: "crew was excellent."
Cons: "internet should be free, not wine. cabin temperature erratic and cannot adjust individual air flow. seat space is small. Pity the window seat occupant who cannot go to WC, blocked by two other sleeping passengers on a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Cons: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Pros: "No any trouble during flight."
Cons: "Too long distance between terminals and very short time between my connecting flights make it almost not possible."
Pros: "Free drinks and movies"
Cons: "Food wasn't great, wouldve rather better snacks than food that wasnt good. Pilot volume - I would listen to a movie at say level 3 and the pilot would come over the radio at like volume level of 7 or 8. Not helpful."
Pros: "The crew were accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "the seats were uncomfortable could use more leg room"
Cons: "The broke my baggage. I have been flying a lot lately and never had any issues until I flew with Turkish Airlines. They are incredibly unorganized, late, gave headphones just so I could watch a map since nothing else was being played for some reason, etc. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"
Pros: "Great smooth flight, amazing movies, everything was clean and smelled great, crew was catering"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Way too many announcements throughout the flight. We has a crazy amount of security checks which caused a delay then had a bus ride to the other side of the airport to get on the plane!"
Cons: "It was delaid too long"
Cons: "The tickets were booked on Turkish air but serviced by Air Canada. Neither company could change flights, check in or check me out of each other's systems. This caused most of my late night delays and struggles. Beware when using either or other online companies serving other vendors"
Pros: "Had REAL silverware and great food. Also great customer service via the flight attendents. THANK YOU!"
Pros: "i like the reception"
Cons: "i like how the crew welcome me.i all so like the food"
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "the people are so courteous and very nice"
Cons: "Buisiness class was so tight , kosher food was just ok"
Pros: "very comfortable and plesant"
Pros: "The services on the plane were fantastic. We were offered drinks right after take-off and entertainment was available immediately upon boarding. The food was delicious and plentiful. Drinks were offered several times throughout the flight which was not my experience with a different airline for my return flight. The choices of entertainment were current and of a good variety. Great flying experience."
Cons: "It was too cramped!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "15 hour stop over in Istanbul with the rudest, prejudiced airport staff ever!!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time even though it was late departing."
Cons: "Crew never informed us why they were late departing. Boarding the airplane was problematic."
Pros: "Onboard experience very good. Food, entertainment, facilities. Tight seats - per usual."
Cons: "Getting boarding passes and checking luggage took two hours. Literally was being dealt with for two hours personally while a couple employees typed and complained to reticket us after airline inexplicably cancelled our reservation on flight home. Until about 30 minutes before departure, no employee had assured us we would get on the plane we paid to be on. Just no concern for the anxiety we were dealing with - and Turkish caused."
Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."
Cons: "Seat was small and squeezy. More variety for food needed."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
