Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Crew did a great job keeping the long 11hour flight manageable!"

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "Crew was good and helpful. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They could have given me an other flight so that I could attend the wedding I was going for. I gotta flight after 12 hours and 10 hours lay-off in Doha. Even if I didn’t get that long layover, I could have been able to attend the wedding."

Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

Pros: "Love the service of qattar"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"

Pros: "The service was great and was on time"
Cons: "The service and was"

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"

Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."

Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"

Pros: "The crew was great and the dinner was really good!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better and the seat was pretty uncomfortable"

Pros: "Timing of flight"

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Lots of new movies"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "I did not get vegetarian food. And when i book that ticket i didn't get the option of food selection..."

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is quite good. Getting on the plane was a fine experience. The flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "Boarding either didn’t announce my zone or didn’t do it clearly enough. The meal service was decent but I don’t think the crew came by with tea or coffee much. The seats were narrower than I recall from previous emirates flights. Information on connections were said to have been updated in the entertainment system, but were not updated in actual fact."

Pros: "They were very courteous and provided us with a solution with an overweight luggage so that we wouldn’t pay the extra fees. Flight was very smooth on the 777. Best flight ever."

Cons: "Service in general, bad"

Pros: "Neat and clean. People at Newark airport"
Cons: "Service of air host. Attitude of people at Dubai airport"

Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."

Pros: "I loved the entertainment choices and the food wasn’t bad"

Cons: "Boarding process could have been a touch more organized, but not significant"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Legroom entertainment show selection remote control {very poor} Food"

Cons: "We landed in Dubabi from Athens a bit late. We were taken by a bus from the plane to the terminal which took 15 minutes. That lefte us about 30 mins before the gate closed From where we were dropped off we walked for about 15 minutes but were nowhere near our gate. We asked Emirates employees to give us a ride in the golf cars. But they all refused, until one had pity on us and gave us a ride. We reached the gate a couple of minutes before the gate closed. When we arrive in Kolkata we were told that out luggage hadn't arrived. They reached our luggage to our Kolkata home a 11:30 pm. What a nightmare. Never again on Emirates."

Pros: "Safety video was cool. Even in Arabic! The amenities were lovely — headphones, entertainment choices, bag with toothbrush, slippersox, etc. They elevated economy well above (the usual) steerage."
Cons: "Not having options beyond the menu; it wasn't clear where to ask for a vegetarian meal. The battle of carry-on v. coat storage is unseemly."

Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Pros: "Best entertainment system."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "One of the better experiences I've had on a plane"

Pros: "Food was great"

Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"

Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Leg room, seats reclining, kids movie selection."
Cons: "Food was horrific. Kids meal was just not Edible and smelled bad. By the time cabin crew reached our section there was no food selection. Bathrooms deteriorated through the flight and were not cleaned through a 10 hr flight. Paper towels and toilet toilet paper ran out two thirds of the way into the red-eye flight and bathrooms became non useable in the morning. Crew requires more training in upkeep of airplane on long-haul flights."

Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."

Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."

Pros: "Everything was great. Flight crew was fleindly. Can't really be bored with so many free movie selections."

Pros: "The crew was professional and very engaging"
Cons: "The food I was served was the same on the last flight I had...wich was 3 weeks prior. A little variety would be appreciated. The quality was excellent, but..."

Cons: "Inflight movies are very dated. Few new releases."

Cons: "They ran out of the food option I preferred. When I asked if another Food cart might have one, I was told they were completely gone. A few minutes later o heard my preferred meal choice offered to another guest."

Pros: "Great options to watch on tv."
Cons: "Flight was late, horrible process at gate of checking passports and items. Should not happen during a layover. This process should take place when checking in."

Pros: "food and service"

Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."

Pros: "Always excellent"

Pros: "The flight was for the most part quite comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting behind me (she could not get comfortable and kept jarring my seat) and the baby crying two rows ahead of \me"

Cons: "This flight didn’t take take off on time. It was delayed A whole hour which made me miss my connection flight To Houston."

Pros: "Friendly. Lots of food and accessories."

Cons: "Boarding at Ataturk Istanbul airport was happening randomly. They did not follow the group boarding like in IAD airport."

Pros: "The crew was really polite and the food was amazing, my favorite part was the dessert!"

Pros: "The Lounge at Istanbul airport is fantastic"
Cons: "Seating in Economy class is terrible. For tall persons like me it is a punshment to be squeazed in such a narrow space. Turkish airlines should add more space and comfort with their seating in Economy. Introduce a Premium Economy Class would solve that problem"

Pros: "Food was too complicated and saucy. Simple dishes preferred. My fork had chunks of fried on food (was dirty) snd unusable. Interior of plane was tired."
Cons: "LOts of water available. I like the menu being given at beginning of flight as one could plan the hours."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was kind and the food was good, the birding process was quick and easy."
Cons: "I had to ask 5 times in 15 min. for a blanket before anyone paied me attention. It takes way too long to have your food tray picked up after meals are served. This is important for me as I travel with a small child."

Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"

Pros: "Crew was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The flight was very comfortable. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "As a business class passenger I wish our boarding process could have been better and perhaps separated from coach."

Pros: "Very nice crew and not at all crowded flight, also the flight was extremely fast."
Cons: "Very loud plane so that I couldn't watch a movie and understand the audio."

Pros: "The food on Turkish is excellent, and it seems they come through every hour to offer water, coffee or tea between meals. The entertainment is also the best system, with the most options I have seen on any airline. And the seats are much more comfortable than most planes- the headrests bend so much, you can actually sleep without your head rolling off the headrest!"

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: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning​ or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish​ airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."

Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"

Pros: "I have always enjoyed my travels on Turkish airlines. Service is superb, staff is very polite and always willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding can be better organized. It can be chaotic and disorganized."

Cons: "I had to scramble to buy full fare tickets on Swiss air to get to LAX so we could make our connections. I am hoping someone will contact me as this is not acceptable"

Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."

Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."

Pros: "The flight from Istanbul to New York was great. Excellent service, good food, free drinks throughout, comfortable modern plane with wide selection of entertainment. Great layover at Istanbul Airport with lots of selection for food and drink. Far better than any direct airline that flies new york to tel aviv so if you don't mind a layover choose Turkish."
Cons: "Free WiFi at Istanbul Airport requires sms authentication which makes no sense on an international trip."

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The food tasted great. The crew are very friendly."
Cons: "The seats are kind of small"

Pros: "even waiting time was long but i do appreciate all the effort submitted by the airline"
Cons: "may be the free shop the turkish items was not to the same level as in local market"

Cons: "It took 4 days to leave Arusha. I know there were other flight options on other airlines (e.g. Emirates) but Turkish wouldn't book us. I ended up eating the cost of a whole separate trip because I didn't get back until Saturday afternoon, despite communicating this multiple times to Turkish."

Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."

Pros: "Liked the food and service"

Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and service was great. They have entertainment options, and working plugs so I could charge my laptop (I often end up with one that doesn't work on other airlines). Would definitely fly Turkish again."
Cons: "I requested vegetarian meals, and they were all vegan. Not a big problem, but would have liked some butter for my dinner roll."

Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"
Cons: "heating controls /cooling tem not very good,"

Pros: "sevice, personnel"
Cons: "food"

Cons: "We left a bit late, but the capitan kept us informed and we were comfortable and had lots to watch and entertain us."

Pros: "The food and service was outstanding. The pillows and blanket provided were excellent in Economy."
Cons: "Second trip to/from Europe on Turkish Airlines. Overall the flight was quite good and the food, service, and entertainment was excellent. However, the comfort level was the worst. This was mainly because the cabin crew kept the temperature of the plane almost like a sauna. Sweating, opened shirt, rolled up the sleeves, impossible to get comfortable or get any sleep!! The plane just seemed to get hotter and hotter! This was on all four segments across and back! The local flights seemed to be a bit better, and while not as cool as I personally like, they were acceptable. For clarification I am a premier flyer with star alliance, primarily United, and fly close to 100,000 miles per year. To date I have received NO mileage credit for any Turkish Airline flight!"

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."
Cons: "The Boeing 777 had the new, smaller seats. No control of overhead airflow among other things. Wish they still had the old Airbus A330's and 340''s."

Pros: "Crew food and entertainment system had many options which helps on such a long flight"
Cons: "Leg room was below average. Entertainment system only had movies. No tv shows so nothing of short duration"

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."

Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."

Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Cons: "Strangely cold!"

Cons: "Too old aircrafts"

Pros: "Every thing went well thx"

Pros: "Delta is one of the best airlines I've flown with. Staff is very helpful, and customer service and amenities are tip notch."

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Pros: "After flying American Delta was an miracle. I didn't have to spend the night in the airport. It was on time. Everyone was nice & helpful. Easy."

Cons: "Still waiting to take connection"

Pros: "Very nice and friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Airline lost my bag. Not happy at all. Lufthansa is a let down. I’m an beside myself and there are meds in my bag that are needed."

Cons: "Late, missed connection"

Cons: "On our layover in Munich, we were at our gate, then noticed about 30 minutes prior to boarding that they’d moved us to another gate quite far away, so we hurried to the new gate, only to discover the change was an error, and we had to run back to our original gate. Made it, but annoyed."

Pros: "I am always amazed how Lufthansa gets it right."
Cons: "Legroom was tide. When the person in front of you put their seat down you feel like ham in a sandwich."

Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "They lost 2 of my checked in bags and damaged 2 others."

Pros: "The service and the entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was not up to the mark, which it almost always is. The crew were a little rude at times, which is also not very common with this airlines."

Cons: "I did not like the delays over one hour delayed"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We missed our flight bc our luggage was stuck on the plane for 1.5 hours and we missed our connection. After running around the airport, waiting on the phone for over 2 hours and in line for 45 minutes, we are booked on a later flight and hope to get home tonight."

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by a couple of hours, Kayak kept us continuously informed about where we stood. Thanks!"

Cons: "Crew at Newark airport unpleasant and dismissive."

Pros: "Just fine."
Cons: "My eyes got so dry that I couldn't see very well for a few hours after landing, everything was hazy and glowing, like I had a film on my eyes. I've been on way longer flights before and I've never experienced this, it was scary."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "That I was able to arrive at Munich Airport"
Cons: "Delay and no information or explanation and help from Lufthansa."

Pros: "Had a row to myself coming and going."

Cons: "Missed transfer, despite assurance before takeoff."

Pros: "747-8"

Cons: "Luggage didn’t make a Lufthansa connection even though both flights w."

Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "tight sits"

Cons: "Did not like them charging extra for a seat assignment."

Pros: "Exenent.."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"

Cons: "Terrible plane: old propeller plane, bouncing in the wind. Inbound flight was late and I guess plane wasn't cleaned in between; had empty coke bottle and wrappers in my seat pocket. Felt like cutting costs and corners everywhere. This was the regional partner, not UA"

Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Cons: "nothing."

Pros: "Hasn't happened. Still waiting."

Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"

Pros: "Boarding to exit all went smooth"
Cons: "Air was sometimes stale"

Pros: "The service was top notch and the comfort of economy class is better than any American airline I have been on."
Cons: "U cannot think of anything."

Cons: "The ticketing when purchasing a ticket from NEW YORK is very unclear and even though we wanted a JFK ticket, the NEW YORK search showed a ticket for NEWARK NJ so my step dad ended up going to the JFK airport - An elderly man who has trouble with English and no one was willing to help him to rebook his ticket. Not only that - the Lufthansa people VOIDED his entire ticket including the second leg because the agency wasn't picking up for a rebooking so the entire ticket cost was lost - $1200 - GONE! We couldn't even get him a one way ticket so he could use the return part of the one he bought. This is an absolute customer service disaster. This man lost all his money, he saves up all year to go see his family. That's an ugly way to take advantage of people."

Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."

Pros: "Nothing"
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 )"

Cons: "Stoll in Germany first flight was over 1.5 hour late a I miss my original flight. I must wait now for afternoon flight and wait all day having family emergency situation."

Pros: "Good flight"

Pros: "Liked all about the flight except the delay, but got good treatment from airline during extended trip"
Cons: "Plane was late to depart, missed connection in Frankfurt"

Cons: "Seating space too narrow"

Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"

Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"

Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."

Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."

Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."

Pros: "New airplane"

Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."

Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."

Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
