Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Had a row to myself, crew was extremely attentive. Due to a lack of passengers, the crew was even able to anticipate many of our needs before we voiced them."
Cons: "My first headphones didn't work and the pull out tray in my row had a bit of left over food crusted on to it."
Pros: "Staff were all good and professional"
Cons: "I want to watch a movie but both airplanes from Da Nang to Incheon and Incheon to Narita were older models so nothing to watch. Didnt matter though actually because i was sick and slept the whole time"
Pros: "lots of legroom. courteous staff. bathroom is clean"
Cons: "everything is excellent"
Cons: "Back support for the seat...but I always bring extra pillow and I’m ok"
Pros: "Leg room. Food was pretty good all things considered"
Pros: "Great leg room, comfortable, good food"
Cons: "Entertainment screen not working"
Pros: "The over-all service"
Cons: "Again, late landing! And I had to catch my next flight in an hour, so I had to literally run and beg everyone in front of me to let me be the first in line when I exited the plane, claimed my baggage and checked it in again to DC, passed through Customs, took the shuttle from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1, went through Security Check for me not to miss my last connection flight. I couldn’t even go to the bathroom. All my flights on Asiana Airlines from the US to Manila and vice versa were screwed up!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating, even on a short flight. Food was also great."
Cons: "This plane was a bit older so I had issues with my seat--controls for the leg rest and to lean the seat back were jammed so I couldn't adjust during the flight."
Pros: "Great service. Good food. Excellent entertainment options. Coach had widest seats I've ever sat in. Asiana is always my first choice for China-LAX."
Cons: "There was loads of turbulence, but it was handled well. And frankly, an airline can't control air conditions. So I have no real bad things to say about this flight."
Pros: "All staff were very nice and kind. Best experience!"
Pros: "Flight delayed almost one hour"
Pros: "The pilot from Korea to Manila was terrible. He maneuvered the plane so abruptly that me and my daughter threw up which we normally don't. And the landing was bad too"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The check in crew in Fukuoka were excellent! Nice smooth fast flight. Will definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "I would love a vegetarian option!"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional"
Pros: "charming efficient staff"
Pros: "Excellent personnel, really polite and helpful all the way"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The seat back wasn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Same comfort as my flight from Honolulu to Seoul."
Cons: "The technology of the in-flight entertainment console. Outdated and less movies to choose from."
Pros: "On time, In flight service"
Cons: "Customer Service is not reachable. I was trying to reach given toll-free number for Asiana Airline, but not able to connect from India. There is no alternate number to contact to customer service. I had to spend few hours to update my meal preference."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew were all very polite and friendly."
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and very attentive!"
Cons: "There was not any WiFi though it was advertised."
Pros: "We liked the food and the friendly staff and the little things like a toothbrush and snacks."
Cons: "Why don't you board by zones? The long stressful line of all sections of the airplane is tiresome."
Pros: "Overall, even with the turbulence, the overall flight experience was quite good. Seat was decently comfortable, and crew members were helpful."
Cons: "The boarding gate was tricky. Boarding at nearby gates was ongoing, so the boarding area was quite crowded, and the waiting line was quite confusing at ICN. The problem was with Hong Kong International Airport. It seems HKIA is experiencing 'traffic jam' very often. It's quite risky for the passenger like me who is expected to have another long journey back home after arriving in HKIA. Should be praying again and again in order to take the AEL and MTR before the service is over around 1 AM."
Pros: "They served grewl twice I thought I was getting grewl with road kill to eat"
Cons: "The food and seemed like one of the lady's working there did not like her job"

Cons: "Ticketing phrase I had a hard time tracking booking that it became frustrating until my son helped me!"
Pros: "Food was nice. Especially, Bulgogi? korean special rice ball was not just a food, but also gave us experience of mixing to make it. Crew gave me smile always."
Cons: "Entertainment was poor. It maybe caused by airplane model."
Cons: "Due to problems loading luggage, and not really knowing what to do, my flight was delayed over three hours, made me miss my layover by fifteen minutes and get stuck in Korea, they provided me with another ticket, but since they didn't have another direct flight, they put me on another layover. My next flight with Asiana to the US from Korea encountered another problem and I was further delayed another two hours, with another two hour layover in LA. The cabin crew was friendly, but not very useful. They provided food, but no help. This is the worst Star Alliance airline I have ever flown. I will not be a returning customer."
Pros: "Both of my roung trip got delayed for about an hour. The service was very so so compared to Korean Air. I couldn't get tickets through Korean Air because of no ticket available but next time I will definitely look forward Korean Air only."
Cons: "Just about everything."
Pros: "The leg room is very spacious and the staff are very friendly."
Pros: "Food was great. Movie selection was not very extensive, but had a lot of great films - watched 3! Very nice staff."
Cons: "I missed the flight LAX to Manila due to confusing departure time. May 31 Wednesday at 12:20 AM indicated in the ticket is actually one day before May 31; i.e., the passenger should be 3 hours before the flight on May 30 Tuesday around midnight. I clarified with Webjet (India) representative who explained that I go to the airport on Wednesday. Asiana should have used military time; thus 12:20am should be 00:20 Hr. to avoid confusion. Asiana penalty for "no show" was USD511 and earliest available flight was 4 days after May 31. I took another airline to go to Manila. I missed my hotel and all other appointments because of the misleading Asiana flight information. It was a big mess for me!!!"

Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "For the first time flying was impressed with everything . Crew was friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Staff was good!"
Cons: "Food, entertainment, seats"
Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."
Pros: "crew, food, service"
Cons: "3 hrs delayed"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants, delicious food, great movie selection."
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Pros: "excellent crew work"
Pros: "Nothing am still didn’t fly because of Turkish Airlines in LA really now I have the worst time in my life because the stuff working they are not have heart and no patient only patient for money fees late really I’ll never leave my problems done I can’t believe now sir you texted me after long time to want what’s wrong with me by the way I recorded everything all the stuff and but u will see as soon I reported everything really if you have heart or just thinking after you know my story u will understand me I reported everything with agents and I was trying many many times to come one help me from turkey airline nobody care really you will see sir I’ll post all record to Facebook and YouTube and Instagram Twitter and also I have mybrother his actor and he do show in t.v Chanel and everyone in Egypt loves him so I’ll add this channel t.v like everyone they will see this sir not sir not ok what happens to me you still don’t know why’s going on but now am getting worse day by day nobody with me now sir I sitting with wheelchairs because my back it’s heart me can’t even walk and I lost 2 bags each bag have stuff cost more than 15000$ because it was 2 iPhone X and 2 HTC Vive And some clothes all brand new and play station sir I have all the documents to approve and I reported too anther bag almost 22000$ I have 4000$ cash and more stuff very expensive and the important things my paper work like very important because am CEO for Amircan OSHA Trasports and my tickets price and I paid another fees almost 200 $ don’t sir thinking I need this money sir money now doesn’t working with me when I back my family with wheelchairs really am never had this in my life and the first time I have Turkshairline Sir please be patient and listen to my story maybe u will feel me"

Cons: "I had to wait until 9am when the counter for baggage registration was open. I arrived to Madrid from Lima at 5.30 am"
Cons: "On the registration checking in in Boston Logan Airport they did not tell me that I as an american citizen must have a visa. After arriving to Turkey they refused me to get in and sent me back to the states. I want refund all my expenses on this trip."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "seats too small. I am 6 feet tall. The guy in front leaned back and my knees were jammed for 12 hours. I think this is a violation of gineva convention."
Pros: "on board was good, plane in good condition, good breakfast, attentive personnel"
Cons: "After boarding, my traveling companion was forced to deplane and take a later flight, some confusion and his seat had been double-booked"
Cons: "It was too warm and the seats had very little legroom"
Cons: "Coffee ahould have been served sometime before landing and not in the middle of the flight when everyone was asleep. Entertainement options were practically zero"
Pros: "Service. Crew. Everything is amazing."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "The service was very professional."
Pros: "Way too many announcements throughout the flight. We has a crazy amount of security checks which caused a delay then had a bus ride to the other side of the airport to get on the plane!"
Pros: "Food and movies where good"
Cons: "I paid for internet and it didn't work. Was told that I disntvoay, so I paid a second time still didn't work. Was billed twice and never was able to connect."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Pros: "My above score should be 5 stars in all categories. They were running a special price on business class upgrades. It was fabulous: food great, service attentive, and seat that totally reclined to bed. I slept over 8 hours."
Cons: "I could not change the stars above."

Cons: "Boarding took a little longer and was delayed without them giving us a reason for it."
Pros: "I did like it"
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "Crew service, as it was a big airobus, half plenty it was very comfortable to be there"

Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Pros: "The crew and the service. Plus the choices for entertainment"
Cons: "The chairs were really uncomfortable, I'm a young, healthy traveler, but my knees and back really hurt after this trip."
Pros: "Even though this was a short flight, we were served a full meal! Crew made us very comfortable."
Cons: "We had a 5hr wait at the airport for our next flight. I wish we could have connected on an earlier flight."

Cons: "I was not unhappy with any aspect of the flight."
Pros: "It is nice that breakfast was served."

Pros: "Really an excellent experience again, great crew, great flight."
Pros: "Checking online and reserving seating arrangement."
Cons: "The desk did not open earlier than the other airlines."

Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option! Amazing staff!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "A little more legroom in coach but it's hard to complain at the deals they offer."
Pros: "The food and drinks were excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment option was restricted to one movie for everyone on the flight. I wasn't interested in the movie. This flight was not equipped with the entertainment suite attached to the chair like the previous flight."
Pros: "The staff was disorganized The boarding slow and the computer was the workings same as above"
Pros: "The service was great. The flight attendants are professional, accommodating and very helpful. Inflight entertainment is great."
Cons: "The temperature runs high on most Turkish Airlines flights that I have taken, especially the red eye flights. Every time that I have flown from Istanbul to Almaty, the plane is hot and people are sweating. This time I asked for the temperature to be adjusted, and after about 4 times, I finally felt a bit better - but still not comfortable. I don't know if this is a malfunction, or an opportunity to save money?"
