Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me.

Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"

Pros: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."
Cons: "Seats are small and huge line for the toilet, but that is the nature of the plane and not Qatar's problem. Boarding was only good because passengers did not cooperate adn stood up when they were asked repeatedly not to."
Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"
Pros: "Everything is fine and have a wonderful time"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food is so bad and it's finish quickly and there's no Choice is. And there's one point Why the flight stops tow times in Vietnam going and back It's should one time and back to Doha"

Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"
Cons: "We were not allowed to board our connecting flight and are stranded currently at the Istanbul airport and had to book our next flight with indigo as the staff closed the boarding ahead of time even though we were on time. Lot of shouting and crying by other passengers happening for the same reason."
Pros: "Very old plane, seats not updated and not working properly, food was served once on an 8 hour flight, there was turbulance for over 5 hours consistently, and the pilots did nothing to go around it. As a pilot, i can tell you this can be avoided. Some of the crew were not friendly. Old movie library."
Cons: "New and updated plane, especially business class, more trained crew, seats that work and function normally, better and more food, served a light breakfast on an 8 hr flight. Updated movie library."
Cons: "Sit in the plane too tight"
Pros: "I did add a wheelchair, they just provided it at Dallus airport. During conneting flights they did not take care of my mom. She has orthrytis and was not be able to walk long distance, but no body provide her wheelchair and did not help her to find a gate for her next flight. It was really disappoin"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Food and entertainment was awful. The wheelchair assisted transfer during layover was horrendous."
Cons: "The wheelchair assist transfer between planes at Istanbul was atrocious."
Cons: "When my first flight was late, Turkish air took 5 hours to rebook me. Two people forgot that they were helping me and when I asked why it was taking so long, they had to start over. One woman didn't even look at me, she was just on her phone playing a game. Every step of the process they asked me how I could have missed the connection....it landed 20 min before the next one took off!!!"
Pros: "I always enjoy Turkish airline flights but lately the quality of food is not as it used to be. Flight entertainment is excellent and boarding was smooth. Getting luggage at the airport was quick"
Cons: "I wish food would be better"
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were especially cramped and tight and leg room was uncomfortable and I am a short person."

Cons: "Crew was a little unfriendly, they missed us for lunch and we had to ask."
Cons: "The seat at the back of the plane does not go down"
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful!"
Pros: "Smooth flight in general, nice staff"
Cons: "Food used to be better"
Pros: "Crew in both flights were friendly. The service boarding etc was great. Flight was very turbulent."
Cons: "Passenger next to me wanted water constantly. The passenger on left of me constantly wanted wine. One got very little attention while the other treated like royalty. Unfortunately the African passenger who wanted water went thirsty a lot."
Pros: "I did not like anything."
Cons: "Everything. I will never book a flight from Kayak from now on. Kayak just charged us a lot of money and did not do anything for us."
Pros: "No comment"
Pros: "Great service and staff"
Cons: "I was happy with everything"
Pros: "Very professional and very convenient."
Pros: "The airline crew excelent"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No entertainment on the plane. No TVs, movies, etc. It was an old plane and old fashioned flight."
Pros: "Movie options and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "The food! So much food that at one point they were bringing more things and i just looked at them like are u crazy? It was tasty and warm."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent, crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent, and I really appreciated the small care packages handed out (with lip balm, slippers, toothbrush/paste, socks, and eye cover)."
Cons: "About 8 hours into the flight the restrooms became very, VERY unclean--urine on the floors, sinks clogged, smelled terrible. More restroom maintenance was needed throughout this long flight. I thought this airline was the nicest I have been on save this one issue. It would be great if Turkish Airlines could resolve it in the future! Additionally the boarding process in Istanbul was like herding cattle. People weren't seated according to boarding group and it was absolute mayhem--no single file line, people shoving past one another to get seated first on the same plane."
Pros: "The planes I flew in were very clean, comfortable and in great condition. I enjoy the seat space and comfort, good entertainment options with great quality entertainment system. The meals were also decent and we were even fed sandwiches on a short flight."
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "the Boarding at ATL airport was catastrophe!!!!!!"
Pros: "The food, the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Old plane. Boarding was not so nice."
Cons: "My tv and monitor didnot work...10 hour flight was sooo awfull,pluss i couldnt charge my phone ...When i ask to find me a seat they couldnt and i asked for upgaded seat they have seats but they are not allowed to put me there......10 hour flight I staired at the black screen tv..I paid same amount of money as theothers but got less service and crew didnt even bother the help"
Pros: "Turkish Airways service is very good -- good staff, clean airplane, attentive service"
Cons: "The airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected."
Pros: "Once on the plane everything was fine."
Cons: "My first flight was changed. Only one email was send about that change. It got lost in some other emails so I didn't see it. But I did not receive any other update or reminder. So I had figure out how to change all of my flights from there to Kansas in the States. All with bad internet service and unhelpful costomer service. And having to deal with two unexpected long layovers. All that to say, sending periodic emails is important especially if the flight had been changed."
Pros: "Turkish air cabin crew did a great job; movie selection was excellent. I would choose Turkish over other airlines."
Pros: "I liked the accurate time for departure and landing, the meals was ausom and delicious and the plane was new and comfotable."
Pros: "When I find the restroom facility with water all over the floor and walls apparently used by a passenger to do a sponge bath. I notified the flight attendants and they immediately clean up the mess and restore the restroom to usable condition. I was very impressed with their attitude in a trying situation. Very cordial flight crew. The little travel kits were an added bonus. Having sandals on a 13 hour flight was a blessing instead of putting on shoes every time you have to to to the WC."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait on the tarmac before take off. It was quite hot in the cabin with no air circulation. And no information from the cockpit as to when takeoff will be."
Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."
Pros: "on time, pleasant flight"
Cons: "no issues"
Pros: "I liked the movie choices"
Cons: "The second pasta dish with red sauce gave me food poisoning. I threw up on the plane, at the airport, 9' the way home, and when I was at home. I had to miss work the next day due to your food. Also, there was not enough trash collection service"
Pros: "Everything was appreciated"
Pros: "was no kosher food"
Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."
Cons: "Poor customer service, rude airport staff in Istanbul, nobody speak English in airport. I had two 85 years old lady with me and they had wheelchair on their ticket, and a I asked the airport staff in Istanbul but, nobody care, that is bad experience in my life."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "I like everything regarding the airline."
Cons: "The airport was attacked by a terrorist and hour after I left to Skopje. I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."
Pros: "I liked the fact that they gave us two meals and offered drinks three times. I have gone on a different airline that charged for everything and wouldn't even sell water."
Cons: "The main dishes were okay and so were the desserts. For some reason the side dishes were weird and didn't taste as well."
Pros: "God overall"
Cons: "Your food is terrible!!"
Pros: "The stewardess was accommodating, boarding was easy"
Cons: "Made my connection with 5 mins of plane takeoff, My luggage was lost, found the following day."
Pros: "Adjustable headrests, excellent crew service, good food, good price."
Cons: "Confusing security gate access at Ataturk airport, tight seat space for a long flight (not enough legroom)."
Cons: "Baggage handling was rough. Dented one new bag and broke the buckle on another."
Pros: "Staff is good"
Pros: "The staff smiled."
Cons: "Headphone jacks didn’t work, my husband’s tv didn’t work, they kept turning entertainment off, food was awful, pre-ordered meal didn’t show up on their list. Overall it was awful. entertainment Selection was mediocre at best."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Improve entertainment content"
Cons: "Almost everything- uncomfortable seating, pathetic hosting, malfunctioning entertainment system, delays over 3 hours, missed flights and poor customer treatment. Not one thing went right."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which made me miss my connection to Kochi. There are no announcements or communication from Air India. It's not worth flying Air India for cheaper tickets even if it's a last minute trip. I would recommend Emirates or Qatar Airways, if traveling from NY to COK"
Pros: "Pricing seating and foid"
Cons: "In flight service was bad. Long lay over at Mumbai for connecting flight to Hyderabad.Flight delays"
Pros: "It Fly Finally! The services in the aircraft was very boring faced no help just doing the work with no smile or helpfull way like people are things or Goods airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very old movies on the TV. You should keep a column of Chalta Hai !. Good Air hostesses great services.Only Acceptable Fact & Flying Captain & Crew Safely Took us From New York To Bombay in Over Crewded Plane!"
Cons: "Delay / Food/ Getting Boarding pass after 2 Hours/ Everything. Flight was, 3 hours , late - No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with less ground staff Food was stale.Horrible I . Overall, pathetic condition of the aircraft."

Cons: "Selection of movies for English speaking customers very limited compared to rivals."
Cons: "Movie selection was terrible especially since it was such a long flight"
Pros: "Plane staff were very nice. Food & red wine were both very comfy. Loved that they supplied pillows & a nice blanket! The top halves of the seats were very comfy – the same cannot be said for the bottom."
Cons: "Was upsetting that the entertainment consoles did not work for virtually all of the flight, and even when they were the content that I wanted to watch 'could not be loaded' for some reason."
Pros: "seats are good."
Cons: "No baggage handling protocol. Had to wait over 1 hour for luggage."
Pros: "Lounge, Boarding, Food, Crew Members"

Cons: "The actual service quality was below the average US flagship airline, far below the average EU flagship airline, and very far below the average Asian flagship airline."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment equipment was not working on quite a few seats. The headsets were broken and the controls to flip channels was not working. Hope they fix the equipment so that the passengers can actually enjoy the variety of programs available."
Pros: "- The crew was pretty good. Helpful overall"
Cons: "- The boarding was handled very badly. Couldn't believe my eyes to see something as simple as boarding looking like a complicated job! - AI crew is pretty rude when it comes to helping with overhead cabins: The cabins are high and it really is very difficult for most individuals to manage it single-handedly. For crew to say this is to any passenger,"You opened it. Now close it" without a 'please can you close it' just sounds atrocious and mean"
Cons: "No manners & courtesy. They carry a bored expression & behave as if they are doing a favor to the passengers. They need to remember that they get paid from the ticket fares that the passengers pay."
Cons: "Sewage from toilet backed up, sitting in sewage whole flight, no offer of reimbursement or compensation for flight that was health hazard"
Pros: "Check-in and boarding were smooth."
Cons: "Food was tasteless bordering on horrible. Only hunger made us eat it. The plane was old. The seats were worn out. Domestic flights have better seats than these seats."
Pros: "Flt was on time. It was enjoyable.."
Cons: "Lost my sleep !!!"
Pros: "Direct Flight reached on schedule"
Cons: "Some of entertainment systems were not functioning"
Pros: "The window seat"

Cons: "Food was not up to mark. The touchscreen was not responsive everytime."
Pros: "Timing was kept up."
Cons: "Entertainment was at its worst!!!"
Cons: "The staff at the check in counter was very unprofessional. And there was tooo much gap between meals. And when I asked for some snacks for my baby they said the only had peanuts. How is that possible."
Cons: "The plane was incredibly dated, did not include any type of internet (I would have bought for a premium given the 14 hour flight!), nor basic navigational info, so passengers were left not knowing any details about trip progress throughout the duration of flight. This is as close as one gets to flying in 1992."
Pros: "Travelling in Air India was good"
Cons: "No goodies for kids which could have been better."
Cons: "The screen from the front row was loose and fell on my leg which was painful. I felt I was treated as if it were my fault!"
Pros: "Helpful crew and the food was alright."
Cons: "Cracked seats, faulty entertainment systems, broken USB slots, the flight was not cleaned after the previous trip. There was crumbs of biscuits inside the headphone pouch. Another passenger had broken headphones. The touch screen rarely worked and rebooted 2-3 times during the flight. Very old aircraft. I was transported back to the 90s."
Pros: "It took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Baggage restrictions cost travelers $100s of dollars if India is only a stopover when visiting other near countries. One light check in was all that was allowed. Our group was on a medical mission and had to have a bag for our clothes and one for medical supplies. It cost over $800 for 6 of us to have the medical come with us to Nepal. As humanitarian volunteers, that money comes out of our pickets. There is no reimbursement from the sponsoring charitable foundation. We could check both bags for free from the US to Nepal, but because we had to have a layover in India, Air India charged for one of the bags. There was no other airline option available to avoid this cost."
Cons: "Don't count on making meetings and connections if your taking Air India"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disprganized"
Pros: "Never going on an American airline again!"
Pros: "The seats weren't bad on comfort. They had soda water available which was nice. Flight attendants were very courteous."
Cons: "Two of the economy lavatories were out of service so there was quite a wait. The food was not very good--one of the 'meals' was just mushy white bread: one half had a slice cheese slapped on it and the other half had a piece of lettuce and one tomato, which I just didn't eat at all."
Pros: "General fleet of aircraft and overall infrastructure seems good."
Cons: "Crew just does not have the habit of smiling. They just do not want to co-operate on simple things like getting water with a smile, or giving a meal later (if the passanger was asleep when the meal service was passing). I mean how difficult can it be to give a meal later, you leave the passanger hungry for crying out loud. And all the airlines in america do this curtesy of either waking a sleeping passanger or serve meal later to that passanger. Indian crew members are just waiting to leave the passager hungry and throw your stupid excuses. And I am an Indian, so dont call me prejudiced."
Pros: "The food and the comfertness is great"
Cons: "Staff and the cleanliness suckes"
Pros: "Direct non stop"
Cons: "Was told that my ex baggage would cost $100 but when I got there at check in was informed that it was going to be $200. T Totally unacceptable. I could have easily given the extra suitcase to my son in law coming a few days later who has a status on Continental & could take it for free for me!"
Pros: "Good crew . Helpful and polite . Smiling"
Cons: "Cleanliness to b improved in toilets . Seats were not in good condition . Place near window should be clean"
Pros: "Flight landed timely despite a late take off"
Cons: "Food quality very poor. Baggage claim took me over an hour.waiting after a 15hr flight was troublesome Flight attendants were not responsive Many of the entertainment systems didn't worked and passagers kept complaining"
Cons: "I did not like to complete immigration in Mumbai as my connecting flight to Hyderabad is in couple hours and I had to take my luggage and check in again and check out again in Hyderabad , very inconvenient process , doesn't make any sense to carat big luggage twice and stress level raises as the connect flight might miss , very poor coordination ."
Pros: "Seats are spacious , food was OK"
Cons: "The tray did not work , needed effort to fold n unfold, seats and carpets smelled of pesticides , movies and entertainment was not latest , it was 2014 ."
