Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "The food is good k"
Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food on the 2nd flight was bad"
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."
Pros: "The crew was great! The entertainment was pretty good too."
Cons: "The cabin was WAY too warm."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"
Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"
Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"
Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Short flight and they handed out chocolate"
Cons: "They announced that carry-on suitcases must be checked to accommodate a much smaller plane This only applied to those stupid enough (us) to comply"
Pros: "Everything except the seats."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"
Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"

Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"

Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"
Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."
Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."
Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent and they made it a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Chrap food"
Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."

That office closed at 8pm We also missed most of the remaining day to our day at the hotel Los Recuerdos in Guatape. Just awful!!"
Cons: "It would make more sense to offer food and more drinks during the flight. At least water, as it is recommended by doctors. It is important to keep people hydrated"
Pros: "Nice service and checking was fast at the airport"
Cons: "They didn’t offer any alcohol not even for sale and the take off was 10 minutes late"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Cons: "No me gusto que ami mama una persona con necesidades especiales La pusieron en los últimos hasientos del avión cuando yo llame para pedir que la pusieran enfrente."
Pros: "Big failed work in new york check-in account. After the 1 hour waiting, let us(who has ticket after the 01:00) the line with only one reason why it's so early and need to support other laters. Moreover, had lost my baggage."
Cons: "Big problem was with several hundreds travelers to Bogota, Sao Paulo for 23:10~40. Avianca accounts don't have any classification to avoid this type disorders problem. Had waited my bag on the band during 1 hour. But, wasn't arrived various travelers bag from new york."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats in front of me"
Pros: "Thumbs up"
Cons: "Everything was fair"
Pros: "Lost my luggage."
Cons: "The whole expericence was terrible. My bag is missing, the customer service for avianca airlines is the single worst experience I ver had to endured. Never again will I use either kayak or avianca. I’m a chef concierge for the four seasons hotel in NY and I will be sure sharing my experience."
Pros: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "The customer service was terrible. Our connecting plane had not left yet and they did not let us on. They proceeded to tell us that our only option was to stay the night and take another flight the next day. Us and 10 other people had to get into an argument with the staff in order for something to be done. After begging, they finally said they would put us on an earlier flight the following morning and they put us in a hotel. The staff did not care about us or our missed flight/wasted money that we paid for the hotel at our destination that night. It took 30 minutes for a manager to give us the time of day. Horrible experience. It's really shocking that this is how the company treats its customers."
Pros: "The personal in the counter are very professional."
Pros: "Overall the experience was ok."
Cons: "No vegan or vegetarian food options. Very long flight and I couldn’t eat anything, me being hypoglycemic by the time I got to Bogota my glucose levels where dangerously low."
Cons: "To many hours waiting"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and felt like squished in like sardines. A little more cabin room space would have gone a long way."
Pros: "The crew were very professional. I speak very little Espanol, but they try to make sure I was ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one jour and I didnt know if I'll make my connecting flight to Cartagena.. No one explain. They said just go to second floor for connection."
Pros: "Food. As usual with avianca was amazing."

Pros: "Love everything about Avianca"
Pros: "The crew was very polite. The airplanes are comfortable"
Cons: "They changed my original itinerary and the flights were delayed."
Pros: "Fairly new airplane seats with TV screens, USB slots, complimentary headphone."
Cons: "Flight was moved 6 hours with no explaination a few weeks before (apparently there's an on going strike), so we had to pay to switch our connecting flight. The day of, there was a 2hr delay so we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok. Drink selection was mediocre. Very limited TV and movie selection. Probably should have stuck with my instincts to fly with a larger carrier."
Cons: "Unprofessional, poor customer service and everything else in between."
Cons: "THE FLY WAS CANCEL.."
Pros: "Not using Kayak, Avianca or Allianz ever again. There’s no accountability for anything."
Cons: "They managed to break my guitar case and leave me stranded in Colombia without a refund. Ended up having to buy a $800 return ticket with Jetblue."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating, poor service. I asked for and extra cup of water and they said no! I mean it's a 6 hour flight and we took the red eye. I would expect to atleast have drinks. Overall staff was very rude. Service was very poor and slow. Plus the seating is extremely uncomfortable no leg room no offer to up sell first class. Terrible flight company would never use again or recommend ever! Stay away there are plenty of other ways to get to Colombia. One positive is they did have a decent movie selection honestly that's the only thing. Other then that this company does not even deserve one star I will make sure to tell all my friends family and social media to never use this company"

Pros: "Great short flight. Very smooth star to finish."

Pros: "Departing on time"
Pros: "Overall the flight experience was very good"
Cons: "I was soooo upset that the check in person when I was about to board the plane couldn't help me to change the seat number. Why is so Hard? Just switch numbers with other people and tell them the changes. US flight do that why Turkish flight doesn't!! Most of people fly alone, its that easy."
Pros: "Dining, crew service, cost of international business class lie flat seat less than half of what the others would have cost. In spite of the weaknesses, would fly again."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding scene at Istanbul-Ataturk airport. Comfort of the lie flat seat on the 777 less than optimal: thin sleeping pad. Lounge at IST crowded, dirty."
Pros: "Every thing about my trip"
Cons: "The mashing not working in the airport in Istanbul for visa , and the internet, if u want the internet u need to have your phone active to get the code to put on so you get the service internet!!!! Same with a visa !! And since we are more a resident we don’t have local # of Turkey"
Pros: "The food, the seats, the in-flight entertainment were all great, like flying used to be. Whenever we have the opportunity to fly their routes we will most certainly do so!"

Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "2 hours delay for no good reason."

Cons: "I can't remember the flight experience, so I assume it was fine."
Pros: "Trip from Istanbul was On Time. As a Disabled Person, I was picked up at the baggage ticket counter and expedited through. It was excellent service in Istanbul for me. The plane experience was smooth, with wonderful entertainment on your personal screen with excellent movie, news and music offerings. The crew was wonderful, friendly, smiling and accommodating. No charge on alcoholic drinks! Food was great. Flight was good. At Houston, the assistants for Disabled Persons was wonderful, accompanying me up until I was dropped at Shuttle service to my car. Turkish airlines really impressed me and would use them anytime."
Cons: "In Istanbul, I had to walk from the gate entrance to the plane. Took me 10 minutes to walk the plank, struggling, but no one offered me a wheelchair or assistance. In Istanbul, there was a considerable amount of people waiting to check bags but there were no agents at 2 counters and it really bothered the people waiting and waiting for them to show up. Then the baggage loading track stopped and it stopped all the traffic for a while. Inconveniences but, nevertheless, it affected the travelers anxiety."
Pros: "I d like everything the service all the crew was very helpful an Cain"
Cons: "Yes I will recommend Turkish airline"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Pros: "Much nicer crew and attendants. Generous service and alcohol... Helped with the sleep"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good"
Cons: "The country"
Pros: "Our Turkish Airlines flight was late boarding and passengers were upset about not being able to make their connecting flights. The crew handled it well, but anxiety was high. The food is always good and one of the reason I fly Turkish Airlines on a regular basis."
Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "Plane left late."
Cons: "First the plane from JFK to Istanbul was two and a half hours late I had a for kids is uncomfortable to wait then try to get a contact with customer service do not give me any straight answers and 3 hours later finally got Somebody explain something overall no good this will be my first time and the last time"
Cons: "It was very hot during the entire flight."

Pros: "Could put a bag under the seat. Advanced AV options. Food was OK."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot. I complained and they adjusted it. The seat really doesn't go back much at all."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "I missed my first night of a booked hotel and activities, and I wasn't refunded for all of it."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing, because it never happened."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I'm stuck in a hotel in turkey without an inkling of when my flight will take off or if it will even take off. I was sent from desk to desk and everyone I spoke with said the same thing, "I don't know" , To every singlee question I had. I slept In the airport like a homeless person just to be shuttled around turkey afterwards in search of a hotel, and I say search because the shuttle that was provided went to 2 different hotels before we got to the one I'm in now. I'm disgusted, and afraid I won't even get a flight out of here."
Cons: "Food choices should have been better..."
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience,"
Cons: "We boarded on time but the flight didn't leave for another 45 minutes or so. This made me miss my next flight when I landed in Instanbul. I think they might have been doing extra checks on the plane so it's fine. Even though I missed my flight and it was out of my control, I was able get another flight within 5 hours and free of charge!"
Pros: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "It is on time, crew is professional. In general, the flight was ok."
Cons: "Pillows & blankets are not always available. Seats are not comfortable. More bread is needed for the breakfast meal."
Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "In contrast to my trip from SFO, this was a delight. They use Airbus A330s, which are huge and very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the service quite warm. The boarding was again late --it is becoming a theme with this airline and of course, we were late taking off and arriving,"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. This airline is extremely untimely! If you have a short layover, never book with them. Fortunately we had a long layover so it didn't hurt us"
Pros: "Other than the food and a little bit the entertainment (I was given the same comedy episodes for the way there and back) everything was perfect. In the future my first choice is going to be Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "Even though the service was excellent - the food was just OK. I had the pasta for breakfast - there was no other choice. I hate pasta and in general there were too many carbs and too few protein choices. Maybe it is a personal taste but for me the food was simply not tasty. That applies for everything I had (except the yellow rice which was good). As for the entertainment - I watch mainly comedy episodes on TV. The same episodes were given on all 4 legs."
Pros: "Flying crew very helpful extremely nice."
Cons: "They charge me $170.00 without telling me! Very upsetting . People who check us in not helpful at all ( especially managers)"

Pros: "The service provided by the airline crew was magnificent. I enjoyed the entire flight from my departure point to the arrival point. Turkish Airline is my to go airline herein henceforth. I will implore prospective travelers to give the airline a shot (try). I can unequivocally attest that the decision to do so will not be regretted."
Pros: "I was happy that they fed us breakfast even though it was just a commuter flight."
Cons: "The seating in coach is a little too cramped - so we were happy that the flight was fairly short. Unfortunately it was delayed about 1.5 hours, so it felt like an even longer flight. The only other complaint I have was that some of the passengers had the most astoundingly powerful body odor, which also really made me wanted to get off the plane as fast as possible!"
Pros: "The 2 planes was really noisy. No screen working during the flight . I was travelling alone with 4 kids . It was difficult to keep my kids busy from Toulouse to Bahrain. The plane are old and the hotess no smily..very bad experience ."
Cons: "Cramped. This is how I would describe my flight. Very tight. Seats close together, a bit claustrophobic. Made the 9 hour flight seem twice as long. Plane was an Airbus 300 (I think) Service was fine and attendants friendly but I'd think twice about flying long-distance with Turkish again on this Airbus model."
Cons: "Terrible service. Lost my luggage. Then refused to connect me to an English-speaking representative. Every time I called to inquire about my lost luggage, they would yell "No English!" and then hang up the phone. Absolutely terrible service!"
Pros: "When My flight was cancelled from Ireland to istanbul and I was moved to a nice hotel with dinner and breakfast"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled - after being delayed 4 hrs. 2nd flight was delayed 3 hrs - Flight from Istanbul to Kl was delayed 5hrs Finding out what was going on was difficult staff did not communicate with passengers - everything was word of mouth between passengers When reached Istanbul - flight was delayed 5hrs - there was again no communication of this. Their was nowhere to sit I spent the majority of 8 hrs on the floor beside a rubbish bin. Staff of turkish airlines did not listen to questions asked and just repeated information that was already known. Did not attempt to listen to what was been said to them. There was over 50- 100 people in line for the turkish airline counter in the 8 hrs I was at the airport. The staff did not attempt to organise this line, and it became a crowd of pushing people. I am extremely unhappy with the ground staff at Istanbul airport. they were rude and disorganised In the airport its self there is no free wifi and call cards cost $15."

Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great. Especially when the person chosen to speak has a heavy accent and it’s competing with other announcements. My over 50 ears can’t make it out."

Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Didn’t like security. They were rude"
Cons: "Somehow they didn’t serve snacks and drinks, I’ve been being thirsty and hungry, at the last 30mns I felt like I wanna throw up. We landed around 30mns ago and now no gates ready for us to get out of here. Still waiting inside the plane."
Pros: "The food and the treatment"
Pros: "The Updated Delta Airline A320 Airbus Inside & Out"
Cons: "Crying baby"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"

Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "misspellt my name!"
Pros: "This space intentionally left blank"
Cons: "For starters, they sat my 12 year old daughter 6 rows away and both of us in center seats so no one would switch with us. Mid flight, my daughter asked to switch with me since the guy next to her kept asking personal questions and was making her uncomfortable. Second, the in flight entertainment did not work. Third, I had pre-ordered a diabetic meal, they “think they may have given it to someone else.” Fourth, one hour delay making for a tight connection. And finally... they lost my suitcase. Should arrive in a few days."

Pros: "Nothing really. It was an overall terrible flight."
Cons: "The crew was so bad. When asked for my special meal 2.5 hrs into the flight, they said you haven’t ordered any, which in fact I had a month before my flight. The crew member instead insisted that ”you should've brought your own food” not once but twice. No courtesy nothing. I was super disappointed. I fly a lot and this was hands down my worst flight. Also, the aircraft and seats were terribly uncomfortable (Boeing 747-8 Economy). Boarding took forever as well. Overall a very shocking experience from a very experienced airline otherwise."

Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"

Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
