The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

Cons: "The vegetarian option could have been better (it was noodles with red sauce)."
Pros: "Very attentive staff who gave us an extra meal and checked in on us while my girlfriend was sick from food poisoning the day before."
Cons: "Far too few agents at check in. The signage wasn't clear and we waited in line for 15 minutes before realizing we had to be in a different line, for which there was only one attendant checking in for three different flights all leaving at the same time. When there are three layers of security at Attaturk airport, everyone waiting to check in were rightfully worried they may miss their flight."
Pros: "It's all great. Recommended"
Cons: "Terrible customer service"
Pros: "I liked the idea of offering a tour of Istanbul during long connections that Turkish airlines offer. The tour that I went on was a 2.5 hour bus ride with sightseeing from the window mostly - still it was very nice. The people organizing passengers in groups for the tour in the airport however were not so nice. When I said "I have a question", the guy literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude and unwelcoming, both in the plane and on the ground. The seat is not comfortable in comparison with other transatlantic flights - somehow the crew and the seats were so much better on my connecting TK flight within Europe."
Pros: "Setting, speed, arrival"
Cons: "Long queue at passport control"
Pros: "Excellent service, entertainment, the food and drink options were good and a 10 hour flight was made as comfortable as can be."

My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Not a lot of legs space"
Pros: "I liked the movie options and the fact that we were given blankets and pillows."
Cons: "I was told in Vienna that I would be allowed to carry my Kindle onto my flight from Istanbul to the USA. I was not able to and had to wait in a very long line both in Istanbul and in the US. I understand the change in regulations, but it is important that all employees of Turkish airlines are aware of the change. We also waited one hour on the runway in Istanbul. Additionally, there was a small section of the plane which received food roughly an hour later than the rest of the plane. I was on this section, and was uncomfortably hungry by the time I received food."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has an excellent entertainment system"
Cons: "They used to have more legroom"
Cons: "Not enough room between rows. Can't recline seat if table behind is open."
Cons: "It was an hour late arriving!"
Pros: "new aircrafts, easy boarding ontime departure and arrival"
Cons: "Staff needs to be more friendly, food needs to be better in quality (ie.Etihad food is amazing). knowing that the flights are going to INDIA & PAKISTAN they should add some indian Pakistani channels"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the draft from the air conditioner"
Pros: "Turkish was the only airline I've flown that actually did not give the impression of nickle and diming but really made clear and concerted and well executed efforts to exceed expectations on all fronts, even food and drink. A huge accomplishment. They really put most of their competitors to shame."
Cons: "Only issue was that the videos kept freezing up, though they did remedy that problem. And I wish they had a foreign hub further to the west. Much as I loved the airline, I would only fly them again to Turkey or further east. It took me 22 hours door to door from Venice to Portland, Maine, when it shouldn't have been much more than half that. It's just too Far East to be a very practical option for visiting Western Europe from the US."
Pros: "All flight segments were on time, the crew was very pleasant, but the main thing was that I felt that the cabin noise was lower than the other airliners .... ????"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "Liked the food and service"
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"
Cons: "There wasa cue 100 m before the gate at Istanbul Airport. The cue became a crowd ahead 4 gates, everybody nervous, pushing, no order, late for boarding, no information. Never seen such nervous crowd."
Cons: "I asked for sugar 3x before finally getting it (1 hour), but by then the coffee was cold and I had to request a new one and wait another 10 mins :)"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Large set of movie choices to pick from."
Cons: "Disappointed that I couldn't choose my meal options - was given a menu that said you could pick between more than one meal. But every single time the food cart arrived (6 total among 4 flights), was told there was no options."
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Pros: "The food, the hotel vouchers, the staff, the plane. I love everything about Turkish Airways"
Pros: "I am not a picky person to me every thing was great taking into consideration that you cant satisfy every one."
Cons: "Not every one can follow the speed of the way you announce things, remember your flight take people from different continents in the world Also not having some where to sit while waiting for the information of which gate to go it is very challenging. The AC was almost killing the older people not me but the older lady sat next to me complained all the time but it didn't work. I know it is the challenge difficult to solve however you can give them some advise. Find a private space to talk with sick people because some people might not be comfortable to talk in front of every one."
Pros: "the food . the warm facecloth, and the attendants were very helpful the slippers and mask were a nice touch similar to japan air"
Cons: "the video on both 9 hour flights had problems. on the way to turkey it didn't work at all on the way back one of the movies took over the screen it thought it was displaying the whole movie but other than the progress meter there was nothing on the screen and you couldn t turn it off , hence no video for 2 1/2 hours not so good"
Pros: "We ran into a passport problem and they sent Wilis Otieno back home to Nairobi instead of helping him resolve it. I made a dozen phone calls to no avail. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Lufthansa left us stranded in Dublin"
Pros: "Nothing, the crew was terrible with very bad attitude, the food is very bad and the seats and bathrooms were awful."
Cons: "Every thing should be replaced starting with the crew."
Pros: "the flight was late in leaving, and although the lateness was not the airline's fault, the scramble of repeated announcements of Boarding is delayed for 10 minutes...3 or 4 times...was not smooth or comfortable...or very professional."
Cons: "the sound system on cut out of and on repeatedly, and shifted program and then would interrupt what was playing again and again, except when it would block the program out. aside from that, it was all pretty ok."
Cons: "We did not take this flight, as we missed our connection due to gate changes & technical delay in Venice"
Pros: "Smooth. No turbulence. On time."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be to include instructions on how to control the entertainment center and find things such as the headphones in the armrest."
Cons: "Retrieval of my luggage in Boston took over 45 minutes. What good is it having Global Entry when other passengers behind me in Customs are getting their bags first?!?!?! Make good on my inconvenience Luftwaff."
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "Totally Re routed. Bleh."
Pros: "I boarded despite being very late from connection"
Cons: "Very stressful to make the late connection. Lost bags due to short connection expected but not well enabled. No communication until I initiated call following day despite submitting lost baggage form. Seats are too close together - when reclined in front I could not use my laptop as not enough space to open my screen. Was able to move to a different seat to ok."
Pros: "Nothing. But I did arrive on time"
Cons: "I will try to avoid Lufthansa if I can"
Pros: "Very comfortable journey, was a pleasure to travel."

Cons: "the wifi is free but doesn‘t work. flynet app didn‘t pair"
Pros: "Loved everything except upcharge for ski bag (no charge on Swiss air for this service) - 1st meal excellent.....2nd light snack (chicken sandwich) not really a home run (sorry.....) - overall excellent experience"
Cons: "Charged $200 for extra bag after a phone customer service representative confirmed it was only $100 at the airport"
Pros: "Where is my bag"
Cons: "Where is my bag"
Pros: "Punctuality, the entertainment system"
Cons: "For the first time in decades (hundreds of flights), I've had to find the paper bag and until the very end I thought I might end up needing it. My companion did use hers, and mine (also a first in many decades). Part of the bumpiness could have been due to a weather system but the plane's movement was jerky when taxiing in Boston. BOS-MUC used to be one of my favorite routes back when it was served by the A360. The new A350 is nothing special except for the entertainment system. Ironically the large screen seemed overwhelming due to the dismal distance to the seat in front."
Pros: "The connecting flight was late and the airlines went out of their way to make sure that we and our baggage got on the flight."
Pros: "Real silverware and glasses for dinner and the best blanket on any flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, attentive, and friendly."

Pros: "i received an unexpected upgrade which worked out very well."
Pros: "Crew very efficient and professional"
Pros: "Faster, newer planes."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Cons: "TV didn't work"
Pros: "I like everything about your operation. my experience with you was far better to what i experienced fly another airline last time i visited United States. thank you."
Cons: "The connecting times between the flights was very tight. Especially as the line for the passport check in Frankfurt was so long. And then the gate was so far away. A mad dash. Stressful."
Cons: "Delayed taking off due to airport queue."
Pros: "Very family-friendly"
Cons: "i could bring checked baggage from Bos-fra, fra-cdg, cdg-fra but it was taken from me on fra-bos flight as being too big! bag came out very late on baggage claim food was poor, they ran out of food, it was served late in my section and there was no choice left. one option only which i could not eat."
Pros: "I ordered gluten free meals on both of my longer flights and the crew seemed to have difficulty distributing them to the appropriate seats. My flight from Boston-Munich was fine but on my return trip from Frankfurt-Boston, I didn't receive a gluten free meal and the passenger behind me was given my gluten free snack."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great . It was just that the weather did not cooperate in Boston."
Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight at midnight before Thanksgiving and left me with no option to get home for the Holiday."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly once I managed through the line for the rebooking because of the strike."
Cons: "Strike holding passengers hostages. This was not the reputation of Lufthansa and the poor relationship between the staff and managment in the past 2 years will make me reconsider travelling with this company."
Cons: "Person in front of my reclined while I was eating"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Prompt departure and easy boarding."
Cons: "Limited dinner choices. Goulash served on flight home to Boston was inedible."
Pros: "The food was terrible. Your seat space is exceptionally small. I am small but others of greater stature cannot really fit and then they encroach into my space. Makes for an uncomfortably long journey. Your attendants were most attentive."
Cons: "The food, food, food."
Pros: "caring attendants"
Cons: "some food"
Cons: "The flight attendants that provided service in my row where not very friendly and at times rude."

Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "Patronizing crew."
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "boarding, after preferred members and those needing help, was all one. that's a lot of people. ended up being fine since there was plenty of time, but sometimes, people in the aisles slow the process down. might be better to put the people at the back of the flight on first."
Pros: "we had to cut our trip short and book an immediate flight home on Lufthansa. The staff took excellent care of us. Even offered us some orange juice and milk to take home knowing that we may need it (being away for a while) and knowing that our first priority was to get to a hospital. These little events shows the extreme compassion from Lufthansa's on-board staff. We will now ALWAYS look to fly Lufthansa whenever possible."
Cons: "Entertainment system nor working properly. 40 minute flight delay due to minor cabin seat malfunction."
Pros: "Nothing special good or bad"

Pros: "Was departed earlier because we were all on board early"
Cons: "Since we were in one of the last groups to board, there was no room for our carry on and had to be checked. Yet there are people in the previous classes who have two carry on bags and both are checked. There needs to be a penalty for this."

Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"

Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "Expected turbulence and crew was honest about it and even changed the flight path to Logan to avoid it. It was bumpy but not that bad. free soft drinks and cookies :)"

Cons: "Our flight in Lisbon was scheduled to board an hour before departure. We arrived on-time, went through the line and were then placed in a standing room only area to stand and wait for another 45 minutes before boarding. We were placed near the entrance (I thought to board early as a family) but were later told to join another line when we asked why we sere just standing and waiting while other passengers were walking past us. The communication between staff and between your staff and passengers was poor."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was in seat 35G. The space under the seat in front of me was very small, and it was nearly impossible to get to my bag when the person in front of me reclined. Also, the young boy sitting behind me was kicking the seat throughout most of the flight. Not your fault, but it was pretty crappy."
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly overall. Decent leg room. Food was good. We left ontime"
Cons: "The temperature control in the cabin was poor. Too warm for my liking and no personal air vents. Also their was a passenger behind me who incessantly kicked at my seat each time I tried to recline."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "The WiFi was expensive and very little total data allowance even in Executive class so very unsatisfactory."
Cons: "at check-in agent said we did not have coverage on our ticket for our 2 -50lb bags dispite informing her that we were covered and had no problem on our arriving flight to Portugal - we had to pay 196 Euros or leave our bags in Portugal Additionally we had ordered a wheelchair to assist my wife to the gate - which we also had our arriving flight - agent said she had no record of it. She said we could wait which we did and waited 2 hours to obtain a wheelchair (and came close to missing our plane) not to mention the stress associated with the whole check in process"
Pros: "I really appreciated the fact that the gate agents enforced the boarding process meticulously. Often times, even when boarding a certain zone, passengers ignore it and board anyway. The staff made sure that people only boarded when their zone was called. The flight and the aircraft was comfortable. The food was better than what I've had on other airlines, if not at least equal."
Pros: "Very nice flight."
Cons: "Boarding should be more organized."
Pros: "Everything great"
Cons: "If you're going to charge for a checked bag on an international flight, it would be nice if you made that clear on the ticket purchase. A tiny link buried in the information section "See baggage information for additional fees that may apply" doesn't make it abundantly clear that you're going to be hit with an $85 charge each way (ultimately $380 for my wife and me round-trip). Sneaky and dishonest!"
Pros: "Excelent fly! No deley! Excelent crew! Good food!"
Pros: "Excellent layout, excellent service."
Pros: "All good. No complaints."
Cons: "$40 charge for carry on."
Cons: "The sound for the movies did not work at my seat or my wife's seat."
Cons: "Me and my girlfriend were seated in the middle in a 4 seat combination. I asked the crew member to move us on an aisle seat. Even though there were plenty of aisle seats open, the crew member just kinda ignored us. The old lady sitting next to me just slept the whole time and I could not get out to the bathroom. Also since I am left handed I could not really eat since with the right-handed old lady we were hitting each other's elbow and nocking each the food out of each other's hand, I finally pulled my elbow in and ate like a T-Rex. The person in front of me pushed their seat back all the way, I asked the crew member to do something but nothing really was done, since I am a little taller I could not fit my knees, they were crushed."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "75 Euro per bag!!!"
Cons: "The boarding was delayed"
Pros: "The only airline that makes me feel like a human being and not a piece of baggage. Very comfortable seating with good legroom for tall people like me. Attendants treat you with respect and are responsive to requests."
Cons: "Gate number was different from what was on my ticket and the tv screen at the original gate didn't indicate where the new gate was supposed to be. Don't need that kind of stress when traveling!"
Cons: "The boarding process seemed very unorganized. The people and police that were working weren't friendly at all."
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "Kosher food was poor. They need a different supplier and better food for their business class customers."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and helpful. The food wad good."
Cons: "There is nothing that I did not like."
Pros: "Friendly air hostesses"
Cons: "Too much security check at the airport due to the U S Homeland requirements"
Pros: "I couldn't have been more impressed. Great food and drink and service. Terrific entertainment options and a comfortable ride across the Atlantic."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Customer service on TAP IS TERIBLE. Employees are apethetic and useless. Don't fly this airline ever"
Pros: "Crew, plane, service."
Cons: "Terribly long line in Lisbon airport to check in."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, no extra charge for blanket and pillow, gluten-free meal was quite good, provided water throughout the long flight, in-flight entertainment offered fairly recent movies, cabin crew were respectful."
Pros: "Efficient, courteous flight attendants"
Cons: "Paid $130 for 2 extra spac s acts. Didn't have any extra space. Had a woman in front of me who reclined her seat all the way for he whole flight. Had to have on of he crew to ask her to put her sat forward for the food service part of th flight."
Pros: "All included extra inches of leg room and personal entertainment system at no additional cost. Food was excellent on our way to Europe, not so good on the way back but still decent. The crew was professional and courteous and the boarding process (two kids included) was very smooth. This has been our BEST experience with an airline in 15 years of traveling annually to Europe. I will book with TAP for now on."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Staff and fact that flight was 45mins shorter"
Cons: "CHeck in at Lisbon was messy as they made us get back into a passport control line at the gate even though Everton was already seated. Suggest you do this before we get to the gate. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "They did beautiful jap thank you so much for your service ."
Pros: "Food. Movies. Recliner in business class. Assistance when i had a stroke in Portugal"
Cons: "No country music"
Pros: "Meal was good, and they gave us a snack since it was a long, trans-Atlantic flight. Crew was friendly."
Pros: "The food from USA to Portugal wasnt great but coming back was amazing and FREE. As well as drinks (other airlines even 'high end' ones like Lufthansa charge you for water!) and head phones."
Pros: "The entertainment system was standard. The food was ok."
Cons: "At the check in, despite that I have a swiss passport, 5)3 hostess looked solely at my face and assumed I need avisa and asked me three times for my visa. On the flight, blankets are removed 20-30 minutes before landing during which I was freezing. Upon arrival, my new bag i hadnt used as yet was broken and TAP pays nothing and does no kind of exchange for broken bags. Basically- they dont care! During my return flight, despite being checked in adn being at the airport wel ahead of time, the airport clerks gyided me to the wrong desk and I had to wait longer than needed. The check in for baggages had closed by 1 min. They were allowing me to take the flight only if I threw out all my liquids or else were off loading me. They proposed no other solution and wanted to make me pay 450 dollara to put me on the flight the next day. I had an interview the following day and needed to return. I ended buying a new full fare ticket with British airways and got excellent service. I am yet to complain to TAP."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing! So friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding process was a complete disaster! No apologies for the late departure and arrival."
Cons: "The crew was rude, after 5 hours they seemed annoyed when I asked for water and gave me half a cup after I had just finished vomitting due to all the swaying of the aircraft. While we were landing, we came over the runway maybe 100 feet off the ground then jetted back up and circled around the airport for 20 minutes before landing horribly...with NO explaination. Everyone started vomitting because the landing (both times) were so horrible. Our first flight was late, we landed when the second was 'closing the doors', they never updated the monitors or informed the crew that the second plane was also delayed (by over an hour), so we rushed through customs and ran through the airport only to discover they hadn't even started boarding yet, even though the screen said it had departed. Completely disorganized."
Cons: "They had no record of my order for a vegetarian meal. I was served some fish but it was terrible. I couldn't determine what the grainy side dish was."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. What else is there to tell????"
