Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I had an isle seat and the isles were so tiny that everytime someone walked by to use the restroom, they would wind up bumping or brushing against me..... So that woke me up about 20 times as well as the crew hitting me with the drink cart."
Pros: "My flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my flight scheduled to go Mykonos"
Pros: "Crew member prepared simple pasta"
Cons: "Took real long before the meal was served and this was hard as the passenger was diabetic."
Pros: "Number of times served and staff was excellent."
Cons: "Had one entree option. Take it or leave it is the only choice."
Pros: "Staff was very good and service in flight was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed at the gate from a late arrival that lead to a 2 hour delay on the tarmac. Handled well by the staff, but if we were on time to begin with, we probably would not have been further delayed."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. We were told we would make the flight which we didn't. We had to spend 12 hours at the airport to await the next plane to Batumi. We were given lunch vouchers but what it applied to was substandard"
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Pros: "Amenities. Flexible food options if requested ahead online. Bilingual staff."
Cons: "Less legroom than others. Small drink proportions."
Cons: "Everything was truly great except for some passengers who felt they could stand in the aisles (and anywhere else they wanted) and lean over people while they were eating as their meals with religious dietary restrictions had already been served. I feel the flight crew could have handled them a little better. Still thought the rest of the service was fantastic."
Pros: "Price, Price, Price"
Cons: "Keep going KAyak"
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Cons: "seat 53 B is not a seat for human beings on a plane. this is the last seat on the plane. next to food area and bathroom. seat back does not go all the way back. it is not built for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"
Pros: "Everything on the flight with the smooth running of the flight by the plight"
Cons: "The connecting flight from New York to Istanbul and Istanbul to Lagos Nigeria is bad time difference"
Pros: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"

Pros: "Service was amazing"
Pros: "Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable."
Cons: "Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving."
Cons: "More than 90 min delay in the flight from NYC to Istanbul. Caused us to get late to the next flight. The replacement we got was after more than 6 waiting hours although earlier flights took off to the same destinatiob."
Pros: "Good food and service"
Cons: "Boarding very disorganized. Messy."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "all in all !!!!"
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor. Very few staff new how to manage the situation, which resulted in long delays, very frustrated passengers and an overall very negative experience. I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Cons: "I've flown Turkish Airlines for years, and in the recent months I've noticed the thing I really loved about them- their service, food and beverages, have gone down. The quality and availability isn't what it was 3 or 4 years ago."
Pros: "Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall"
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
Pros: "Overall everything was fine"
Cons: "Slow serving refreshment, not enough for long flight, need little bit more, aircondition not work so good"
Pros: "Everyone was so sweet and they gave out eye masks which where super helpful. I was more comfortable on this flight then any other."

Pros: "There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey"

Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"
Cons: "I miss my flight from Istanbul to sofia due a technical issues leaving JFK International Airport from NY and no one was waiting for us to make sure we can get to our connect fligt on time. Thank you Turkish Airlines for letting me stay 11 hours on your stupid airport and missing one day of may vacation. I will never ever again flight with you!"
Pros: "Top notch"
Cons: "The seats were close together and I felt crowded"
Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."

Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."

Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."
Pros: "The food is really good, they still are trying to do airline travel like it used to be - with great service and proper meals, menus and snacks. Lovely staff too."
Cons: "Inadequate space for rollie luggage - most compartments don't accomodate - and the flight attendants became frazzled as time went on - sometimes they were rude when you asked for water or a soda - I think because they would be coming by with a drinks cart in a second, but we don't always know that."
Cons: "Two women fight over space the entire flight and the flight crew were indifferent about it."
Pros: "Good experience flying the airline including: Checkin process including securing me the last exit row seat Boarding went quickly Meals were plenty and good - also had a menu Provided a personal case with things like socks etc Connection was smooth for me Customer service in general was good"
Cons: "Only negative experience was that I had a connecting flight with a small window (1 hour) in Istanbul and my bag didn't make the same flight as me so I was without it for a half day. However they handled the situation well - knew where my bag was, sent it on the next flight and delivered it to my hotel so it wasn't too inconveniencing."
Pros: "Food was good"

Pros: "Seat was private, comfortable, accommodating. Service was really great, food was delicious. totally nice flight."

Cons: "seat spacing too crowded"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "I wish there was a wife"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight"
Cons: "Boarding and departure was almost 2 hours late. Drinks are offered before food, but not with food. A Russian proverb says something like "A spoon is the most valuable at dinner time" Aeroflot should listen to this proverb."
Cons: "No organization to board. Long lines, people pushing and cutting."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work in half of the in-seat monitors."
Cons: "The above"
Cons: "Boarding procedure took two hours"
Cons: "Crew member named Alexander was very very rude with us and other family. When we asked for his full name to file the complaint he refused to give his last name I believe crewmembers should be trained well and know how to communicate with the customers .very very disappointed"
Pros: "Everything, service ect...."
Pros: "המושבים שהוזמנו היו נחמדים. היתה טיסה נעימה"

Cons: "Flight attendants were smiley robots. Drinks and meals served at absurd intervals from each other - never at the same time. Exactly one alcoholic beverage service all flight, and no choice but to go and ask in the galley for anything else - including water. Thin seats that slide forward in addition to reclining. The literal worst boarding and replacing procedures - almost an hour of standing and waiting first in the terminal, then in the aisles. Better hope you speak Russian if you need anything."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Cons: "There were a group of people next to me talking and laughing loudly through out the whole night. I asked one of the stewardesses if she could speak to them but should wait 20 minutes so that its not obvious that it was me who was complaining. She repeated what I said and assured me she will take care of it. Instead she came over to them 2 minutes later and then turned to me and said everything will be ok. Of course they continued being rowdy the whole night. The flight was ruined as I could get no sleep. Will think twice before going with Aeroflot again"

Pros: "Aeroflot is very good value for money. The planes are new, roomy, have good in-flight entertainment choices and the crew give very good, polite service.

The English announcements are almost impossible to understand but that is the same on many airlines."

Cons: "Delay in receiving my luggage"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean and the service friendly. I liked the personal screens for entertainment and the selection of movies was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to stand in a long line to board. Because the seats are close together they can't lean very far back and it was difficult to get comfortable to sleep. One of the vegetarian meals was simply pasta with tomato sauce and a few of pieces of squash with a white bread roll. BYO"
Pros: "Good movies on board."
Cons: "Boarding was late, take off was late, I almost missed next fligt, my luggage arrived to my final destination only day later"

Cons: "DELAY FOR 1.5 HOUR IN jfk"

Pros: "Exselent servis !!thank you !!"

Aeroflot representative told me that they are in process to find my luggage. Unfortunately, they haven't found my case. I will send complain letter to Aeroflot. The airline refused to provide compensation for this loss. Is it anyway to get compensation for my lost luggage? Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Best, Svetlana Zemlinskaya email@example.com"
Pros: "Everything besides the seats. The crew is friendly and courteous, the entertainment systems are modern and even let you charge your phone via USB, and the plane was clean and looked new."
Cons: "The seats have hard, flat seat cushions that make your behind feel sore after an hour. The seat back is sculpted for a 5' tall passenger and cut into my back around the shoulder blades. I was unable to make myself comfortable, let alone fall asleep, despite being very tired and sleepy."
Pros: "This is our third round trip on Aeroflot in 2 years. The price was amazing AND the entire experience was what you would expect from a major airline. We were lucky to have no delays. The inflight service was what we expected, the food was more than edible and the ground and flight staff were professional. We make 2-3 international trips per year and are experienced mature travelers."
Pros: "The flight was relatively cheaper than others"
Cons: "The aircraft was less comfortable than other flights I've been taking in the last few years,but I was ready to accept it given the cheapest cost. The food though made me real sick,I still have stomach ache after 24 hours. The headphones provided to watch movies were of such low quality that it was barely possible to hear what the actors would say, and given that it was a two-input system, it was not possible to use your own headphones."
Pros: "I liked the service, the food was delicious even in economy class."
Pros: "Left on time Not too crowded Seats decent"
Pros: "My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our 9 hour flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how often they served us food, drinks, and snacks throughout the flight ! Movie selection was impressive and we both watched 3-4 movies. It was great that we could pause movies at our leisure as well!"
