Food was not upto the mark. Boarding at Boston and Doha was chaotic. Overall experience was not up to the mark
Instead of 1 hour layover in Doha need to wait for 5 6 hours.
Worst experience, slow boarding due to bus transports, crew are rude and flight was delayed for more than 1 hr and nothing was offered during the wait. One of my worst flights.
Never reached there flight got cancelled 2nd time in a row
More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing
Everything was excellence and good
Pros: "They cancelled the flight"
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Children aboard did not cry !uch."
Pros: "The crew very good and helpful"
Cons: "The crew are well organised"
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."
Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"
Pros: "Super comfy seat and entertainment, plus staff super nice"
Cons: "Too long on boarding"
Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."
Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."
Pros: "Food , good accommodation, friendly treat!"
Cons: "No thing really!"
Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Pros: "The crew was awesome had the most caring crew anything you need thier there to make us happy I’m absolutely happy"
Cons: "I dislike the economic class on a 19 hour journey to Doha to Dallas Texas I felt so tight and annoyed with people next to me when asking to go to the bathroom that’s my mistake next time I surely will go on bussiness class other then that everything was great."
Cons: "Unfortunately, my baggage was lost on this flight, which will make it very difficult to climb Kilimanjaro!"
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "The best airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "Well I had 13 hours of layover. I was extremely tired and sleepy."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and crew"
Cons: "The plain was very old."
Pros: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Cons: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"
Pros: "Best airline in the sky"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and price of ticket"
Pros: "all the crew they were awesome it's my favorite airline QR⛤⛥⛦⛤⛥⛦⛤"
Cons: "I like every things"
Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."
This refers to LX177 (Singapore to Zurich). This was a ghastly flight with the food being an outstanding disgrace. I did complain the CEO of Swiss who seems to have taken no notice. I would strongly advise anyone contemplating using this flight to seek an alternative carrier.
Loved it all. The cabin was kept pretty hot, but I can live with that. Superb service, thank you so much! Great choice of movies. They even had a vegetarian meal available once. I was trying to call the company to order a vegan meal prior to my flight but I could find a US number to call.
Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Cons: "horrible dry croissant for breakfast"
Pros: "Food was good ."
Cons: "Didnt turn on the AC until were in air, implying that everybody was sweating for 30min from boarding to ip in air. Crew refused Green Tea, saying it is only offered in Business class"
Pros: "We flew Business Class. The crew was professional and attentive. The food was definitely a nice cut above."
Cons: "Nothing that I can offer. If I needed to make another trip anywhere ANZ flies, they would be my first choice every time."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Leg room always an issue. Crew really great."
Cons: "Gluten free option"
Pros: "Full array of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. The flight crew did everything alright."
Cons: "Connecting flights. All lies, no cooperation. Not a small airport as it takes nearly half an hour to get to Gate E. Too few characters allowed to explain all we went thru."
Cons: "service was least friendly at this part of my flight"
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness isgood"
Cons: "Food is bad"
Pros: "Service on Swiss Air is great!"
Cons: "No TSA checkin at Newark."
Pros: "I enjoyed the 7 lay over. Took a train to the city (12 minutes ), walked around and shopped, ate and tracked back with the train . A nice stop over"
Pros: "On time, friendly and incredibly efficient. Runs just like trains, just at a higher elevation!"
Cons: "For the home of Emmentaler I expected a bit more taste from the cheese sandwich."
Pros: "Was smooth. From take off to landing. Captain kept us informed all the way to our destination."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Crew was great. Ice cream was fun. Swiss chocolate was a nice surprise!"
Cons: "Short flight with no entertainment, no means to charge devices."
Cons: "first baggage should be free.....as people travel with 15-20kg hand luggage"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to Denver"
Pros: "The view out the window."
Cons: "Delayed, no leg room. No refeshments."
Cons: "Kayak sold me a “lite” ticket on Swiss, but never mentioned that it didn’t include baggage. Even though Swiss is Star Alliance they didng count my Star Alliance Gold status for free bags and didn’t offer an upgrade. Zurich was incredibly hot and the airport didn’t have air conditoning anywhere. The boarding was worse than Ryan Air. The plane was okd and super uncomfortable. staff was rude and not at all helpful. Swiss is definitely a budget air line!!!!"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Economy seats in business. Also baby strollers took ages to come out at Heathrow, should have come to the door, but instead came at baggage claim about half an hour after our baggage, so pretty poor service in that aspect"
Pros: "Chocolate is a nice touch. Snacks (sandwich) was actually good."
Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."
Pros: "Our flight on Swiss was excellent. On time, courteous crew, and loved the morning Croisant and the chocolate. As my wife and I are both retired flight attendants with TWA and American, we tend to notice customer service at all levels of an airline’s operation. Both our flight out of LHR to GVA and our return were smooth as can be. Nice job, Swiss!"
Cons: "French unions"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"
Cons: "I couldn’t take it. To travel to pass through Canada you need a Visa"
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "Fast journey despite a short delay it arrived on time."
Cons: "Felt a bit hectic on the plane, possibly due to other passengers being slow to board."
Pros: "Comfortable....customer-service oriented staff. Enjoyable food, and entertainment."
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "No entertainment, no pillows or blankets, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "smooth flight, comfy seats"
Pros: "Boarding and cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were too tight and squeezed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The airport at Vienna airport checked my hand luggage (and many others as well) on a scale. My was ok and I got a red tape stating that it was checked. At check in it was checked again. I have a very small roll on that I specifically bought for flying in Europe. I never had that in the US."
Cons: "Had 1 day for quick trip to London. Two hours through security In Geneva and 4 hours late arrival on Swiss at LHR. I can tell you this, the Geneva Airport and Swiss DO NOT run like Swiss Watches. They both get F's."
Cons: "You charge the ticket and my reservation wasn't there!!"
Cons: "My luggage being lost both from Toronto to Zurich and from Zurich to Toronto. Air Canada took nearly 4 days to get my baggage to me in Toronto, as a result of which I was unable to attend a funeral in Chicago. I was lied to over and over by air Canada. The entire experience was horrible."
Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."
Pros: "The captain refused to turn on the AC until we were just about to leave. Many passengers were complaining. The crew refused to help or do anything. Then during the flight they kept the air flow down to a minimum so again it was boiling hot. DON'T FLY Swiss Air if you like normal temperatures!"
Cons: "Same comments as above."
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Pros: "The food and service was wonderful."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no plug-ins to charge electronics."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew, nice food."
Cons: "I found it uncomfortable to watch TV/movies when the seat in front of me was pushed back - the screen was too close."
Pros: "Perfect service, on time"
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Cons: "My name wasn't on the flight. I lost my seat."
It was on at the terminal we were at in Las vegas, we were all the way at the end of one of them, I think it was c.... Dates 41 42 and 43.... They were in a row from left to right and we were scheduled for 42.... Right before that 41 was loading and yet the line started on the right Chris crossed 43 42 over to 41 causing foot traffic confusion, and yet the left side in front of gate 41 was relatively empty...... Eventually some Delta step did come out and assist but for about 40 minutes it was quite confusing and crowded

Pros: "Nice plane, good service and pilots, great landing - no issues at all."
Cons: "Landing was very rough and flight crew kept bumping me with food cart during sleep"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff by an hour because the plane was too heavy. Had to kick 8 passengers off the flight before they would takeoff."
Pros: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "The area in the back of the plane by my seat smelled like dirty feet."
Pros: "Informative communications during delay"

Cons: "The temperature was unbearable. My dirt and pants were soaked with sweat. It was very hot."
Pros: "Everything else was okay"
Cons: "We arrived late & the connecting flight was far away got there with door closed 10 minutes before they left. But wouldn't let us on another 3 or 4 passengers. Needless to say are pre paid ride to the Cove we missed and we probably miss our dinner t 6to 7"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small air craft"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."

Cons: "Everything was to my satisfaction."
Pros: "Time of the flight"
Cons: "Space in the plane"
Pros: "Every single detail was outstanding"
Pros: "early take off and early landing"
Cons: "crying baby... passengers hanging out in the aisle... also lady sat in my emergency row seat and would not leave so I let her have it. also the lady next to that seat complained the whole time we tried to negotiate that seat. also the flight attendant that gave our section drinks seemed irritated and very rude. Older african american woman that stuck her finger in my face and the person next to me to ask her to stop her question as he picked up snacks that she dropped in the aisle. Kind of rude and kind of uncalled for. And the lady next to me (lauren) is an ER dr that had a layover in Atlanta for 4 hours to vacation with her fiance in the Caribbean..."
Pros: "the seats were ok"
Cons: "was little late"
Pros: "Understanding crew, and a helping attitude"
Cons: "Multiple cancellations and a total of THIRTY HOURS OF TRAVEL TIME for what was supposed to be 5 hours of travel in the beginning. I am still sitting in a god damn airport as we speak."
Pros: "Charging stations and in-flight texting."
Cons: "The pretzels were oily and nasty"
Pros: "Row 40 was uncomfortable due to inability of seat adjustments."
Cons: "Couldn't adjust seat"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding process is a bit backwards. They board by zones with the front of the plane going first, so if you're in the back you get stuck in the aisles waiting for these people to sit down. They should board the back of the plane first."
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Left on time and got in early"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Cons: "No fruit and cheese available to purchase one the flight. Need more than cookies"
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "I love that I was upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "Its the way flying should be. The flight attendants were very pleasant and funny"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working all the time. Didn't bother me I was reading"
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
Pros: "Nice chairs with built in pillows. J"
Pros: "Tv s food drink seat size"
Cons: "My plane was delayed 2 hours, additional wait while taking off. There was about 3 hours in Utah for me to connect to the next flight to Dallas. When getting off at Utah, I could not get off plane early to catch the plane. In the past the flight attendants were very well informing people. I was at the gate only 5 mins late before catching the flight. Now I am stuck in the airport for 5 hours on standby!!!! It can be avoided totally."
Pros: "Entertainment and screens were awesome - worked perfectly"
Pros: "I love the food and the movies"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "The plane was too hot"
Cons: "Plane too hot"
Pros: "three main dishes. chicken. pasta. beef. I donot eat beef and pasta. I request her to give me chicken, but she told me that the chicken is finished. and donot ask me to take any other item."
Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Cons: "Bording the plane has no order passengers seated in the front border before the rear. I was in 32a to he worst seat on the plane"
Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "6 hrs delays"
Cons: "Runny yogurt, hard bread, meals are served to late, not enough water given while flying No space between chair No snacks in between meals No communication in Istanbul for connecting flights They don't smile or greet on Istanbul very official"
Pros: "Big plane, friendly staff, good food."
Cons: "Sometime, it gets a bit too cold."
Pros: "the seats were more roomier than the flight to istanbul."
Cons: "One of the other passengers was being difficult and irritating on the flight."
Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "On the way back from Istanbul to London the plane was old and small, the TV kept shutting down,even the earpiece were not working."
Cons: "It wasn't great experience as we missed the flight back to UK. They lost my husband wheelchair and we did missed the flight. They Redbook flight which was three hours later, so missed our tax home as well. We haven't received any apologies not even offer a drink. DISAPPOINTED"
Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Cons: "Have yet to arrive"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Cons: "I book flights and they toke money and last minute when i went to the airport is not existing at all"
Pros: "Food was great so was service"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Cons: "Would highly recommend"
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Pros: "Friendly good service"
Cons: "Istanbul changing gate to get to such long walk"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Cons: "Not enough security staff at Istanbuñ and no one from the airline to assist. The queues were too long at security so I had to run to make my flight. Lots of other people had the same trouble and I believe my cousin missed her connection."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Pros: "Seats comfy. Turkish airlines rep came to collect passengers as previous flight delayed."
Cons: "TV/Movie/music database was empty for my seat. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. The food was very good for a relatively short flight. Definitely will keep flying Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The passenger that did get seat for her child and herself next to each other. So I gave up my window seat because another premadonna would not give up his. That was the only bad part."
Pros: "loads of room, great entertainment system, nice crew and the food was very good too."
Pros: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "everything was very well done"
Pros: "Very professional and very convenient."
Cons: "Service on this flight was significantly better than the Cairo flight, probably just because this flight goes to London. Welcome drink were promptly served but the food choice was still a big no-no. EVERYTHING CONSISTS OF DAIRY PRODUCT THAT I M ALLERGIC TO. When I brought this to the flight attendant's attention, none of them was apologetic and none of them tried to find out another solution to me, who was flying their airline the first time and didn't know the not-so-diverse food option."
Pros: "Good food and comfortable seats"
Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."
Pros: "I normally always like flying with TK - this was a clear exception. Unfortunately what normally feels rather enjoyable was today some 18 hours of suffering."
Cons: "My headphone - outlet did not work - had to hold the connector manually the whole flight tonhear something of the movie. But the boarding procedure was far worse - it took almost 1 hour standing up due to new rules of technical equipment and all bags having to be opened. I understand safety goes above all - but off you know You have this time consuming process - do it in an area where people can have a seat while waiting!"
Cons: "The security check at the Istanbul gate is haphazard and not to0 professional"
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Food was so so. Turkish offers free excursions into Istambul for passengers staying over 6 hours. The excursion departs at 12p.m. This flights arrives at 11.25 a.m., but the lines in immigration are stupidly long. We arrived at the counter at 12.15. In a very unfriendly way, they explained the excursion had left, and no possibilities for joining it in Town. So, we were stuck at the airport for several hours. How stupid is to offer an excursion to passengers in layover, but program a flight with 300 passengers to arrive just in time to miss the excursion? Somebody has to think this over. This excursion should leave at 12.30, and it would avoid dozens of passengers stuck and unhappy."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "the first flight (from Dhaka to Istanbul) was long, but great. full entertainment. the second flight from Istanbul to London had zero entertainment (the flight is obviously international and 4-5 hours long). there should be an easier way to request a vegetarian meal when i buy my ticket through your website. I shouldn't have to go through some convoluted way of contacting the airline to find if there is a veg option."
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Hey, two checked bags free, two free in flight measl and drinks including alcohol, and coffee service midway, free in flight movies and music, free headphones, free blankets, and a free toothbrush, yea toothbrush, its like flying in the way way back."
Cons: "The check in lines are very very long and take forever"
Cons: "This flight was pure misery. In the Istanbul airport flight gates are not announced until an hour before your fight. This would be fine if Turkish Airlines would also allow us access to our flight at that time. The gate had been announced and we had to wait for them to set up a security checkpoint before we could even sit at our gate. This security checkpoint was set up at a point where nearly everyone on the flight was waiting. This caused it to be a huge delay of people concerned about missing their flight. Little did they know that they had nothing to be concerned about because our flight would eventually be delayed two hours. We were eventually loaded onto our plane which apparently was having some technical issues despite just landing in Istanbul. There were people who had rode in on the plane that was eventually deemed unsafe to fly because of an error with the steering mechanism (which we were not even told what was going on until we boarded a second plane). While they determined this we sat on a hot, non air-conditioned plane full of screaming children. I understand why they were screaming and wanted to join in. We eventually had to deboard the plane and wait for them to secure us an alternate plane. They attempted to deliver the plane to the gate, but were unable to steer the first plane away from it, so we had to be transported by bus to the open tarmac. There was no order or organization as to how people were loaded on to either the bus or plane and it was pure and utter choas that delayed our flight even further. The plane we boarded did not have inflight entertainment so we sat on our four hour flight to London left to our own devices. When we arrived in London it was pat the point of public transportation trains running and I had to reroute to a bus. By the time I arrived at my flat it was 4 in the morning. Turkish Airlines has been the most chaotic, unprofessional, disorganized, and inefficient airline I have ever traveled on. My tale will continue with my return flights and how they lost my luggage and it hung out in Istanbul for a few days before being returned to me. I can not stress enough to others to never travel with this airline. The cheaper price is not worth it."
Pros: "What can I say, didn't much like anything"
Cons: "Cabin staff were blatantly prejudice, would not assist anyone who wasn't Turkish or of their color. I had an injury and surgery to my right foot, and as a result was using a walking can for m9bility. One my return flight to UK one cabin crew member decided in their wisdom to place said cane in the overhead bin. I advised her, I didn't like nor think this to be a good idea. Things move when taking off and my fair was if one wasn't aware the cane was there it may fall and injure someone. She insisted, and put the can into the overhead bin, and surprise, one of her fellow cabin members opened this b8n, and down came the cane on a passenger's head. For her injury, they offered her water and proceeded to hand the cane back to me. On flight TK 603 or TK 1983 we were assigned seats in economy row 20 A and b, well my son was seated in 20B, almost sliced his palm on the armrest, because the cover that should have been there wasn't, thus exposing jagged metal. I had to insist that we be moved and they should NEVER allow the cabin be loaded with such dangers visibly exposed. They didn't seem to show much concern, since the flight was full of "blacks"...! On our maiden flight on this airline, we had a 15+ hour layover. Couldn't get assistance from airport staff on simple questions such as where could one rest for the 15 hours, airport staff are busy riding around on automated wheel chairs, and when we asked them to assist an elderly lady who obviously could not walk the distance to her boarding gate in Istanbul, we were met with glares, or look of "they don't know English" or simply being miss directed, whilst my son carried this ladies heavy bag, including his own, and I on my walking stick, until we located the infraction desk, where a true gentleman, by the name of Mahmet came to our rescue, or more importantly took over the matter and assisted this lovely lady who was heading back to new york, to get her water for her medication, a chair to sit on until a wheelchair was brought to her. Honestly, in the many years that I've traveled, I've never seen or encountered a group of unprofessional, disrespectful and just downright prejudiced to visitors to their country! You couldn't pay me enough to visit Turkey or ever fly Turkish Airlines again in my life. So, so disappointed and disgusted by the whole experience it begs the question, how was this airline voted the 2nd best airline in Europe? You must have a very low ranking requirement, or my expectations are just too high for this airline, airport and the people I encountered."

Nothing special , just what I expected for an internal USA flight
When I checked in they had me down as two people the computer would not accept my booking even though I had proof The aircraft was freezing And the dinner was terrible my cutlery also was soiled The crew were great
The flight was booked via Virgin Atlantic. Using their on-line check-in I was directed to the Republic Airways check-in who were operating the flight on behalf of Virgin. There is no trace of any way to check in on their website. I found the flight on the LeGuardia Airport information page and saw that it also had a Delta Airlines flight number so I tried to check-in via their web site - which worked. It would be much better if the eticket information had the correct details for on-line checkin.
Gate changed suddenly without early announcement. This needs to be corrected
With my wife being disabled the assistance and crew staff were very helpful getting us on and off the plane. My previous experience of virgin although some years ago was a wider choice of meals and food more to my taste.
Amazing flight attendants!
Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.
Heathrow Airport refused to let us through security on time and we were not permitted to board the flight.
The only issue tbf was with the auxiliary engine being down so the a/c couldn't be run at either end
Ease of check in to boarding. Clean Aircraft. Food was of poor quality

Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."

Pros: "Loved the food and ambiance"
Cons: "The on air entertainment was surprisingly low quality"
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable, not enough minimum space to fit my knees behind seat in front when front passenger reclined. 6 hours is too long to have a metal rod sticking straight into your knee caps. Shoulders were squished between other passengers and had to sit twisted the whole way and Im not a large person, but am 6ft. Cabin crew impolite and unhelpful. Food was awful and made my friend sick."

Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative.
