Cons: "Having been impressed on recent overseas flight using Turkish Airlines, I thought the standards they had previously practiced would have been implemented. Unfortunately, there were several customer service disappointments, from forgetting to include dessert with my and my daughter's meals to being made to wait nearly an hour for the interactive screen to be reset. And not a sincere apology or effort to resolve the problem."

Pros: "the food . the warm facecloth, and the attendants were very helpful the slippers and mask were a nice touch similar to japan air"
Cons: "the video on both 9 hour flights had problems. on the way to turkey it didn't work at all on the way back one of the movies took over the screen it thought it was displaying the whole movie but other than the progress meter there was nothing on the screen and you couldn t turn it off , hence no video for 2 1/2 hours not so good"

Cons: "Seating was a little cramped... Like all airlines today."

Pros: "Nice service! The crew was nice and food"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "friendly crew excellent service good food"
Pros: "Very accommodating staff."
Cons: "Temperature was up and down. Seats were small."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is the best. Great food. An entertainment system that is really in a class of its own, especially on this flight -- large, crisp screens with lots to watch. Wonderful service. Great prices. I'll be back!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled last minute on two occasions, without any prior warning given to passengers. Passengers only learned of cancellation at the airport. There were only two Turkish airlines representatives at the airport trying to sort out over 100 passengers. After two cancellations I was finally put on a flight departing 8 hours later."
Cons: "Canceled flight without notification, rude customer service."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is very comfortable and they go above and beyond to make their meals and flight experience wonderful!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, staff want out of their way to make the flight enjoyable. The stay at Istanbul airport was a nice experience."
Cons: "They lost half the bags on the plane, including mine, so there was a huge line to make lost baggage claims. Turkish Airlines pretty much runs ataturk airport ist. So they should make sure the Wifi there works. Which it never seems to."
Cons: "Turkish airlines has the most influence over Ataturk airport(IST). Thats why I hold them partially responsible for the WiFi not working at the airport. Taxi-ing of the aircraft at Ataturk was un-smooth. Often times the engines were blasting to get the aircraft moving again."
Cons: "The food, the seats, everything was good. Just even I have asked for a earings (headphones) to be able to watch a movie you have provided, nobody gave me any. 13 hours just sitting without doing anything. And yes, I have asked for!"
Pros: "It was nice, food on a short flight, friendly staff."
Pros: "good food, good service, comfortable large selection of personal entertainment personal toiletries friendly service usb ports on every seat"
Cons: "movies kept freezing or skipping even after restarting computers. slow boarding/gate security check in Istanbul caused significant delay"
Pros: "HD screens, blockbuster movies, good food, additional snacks, comfortable seats.It's like a fresh air after the other big airlines, especially the food and service!"
Cons: "I understand that an airline can’t control the weather, but they can be prepared for it. We arrived hours late and found chaos. Conflicting information from staff. Lines lasting HOURS, verging on mob behavior, some passengers shouting and crying. One very good agent got us into civilized lines, but it was still awful. Later that night, we found our second flight HAD taken off, despite every single airline and airport staffer insisting that all flights were cancelled. We could have been home for New Year’s Eve instead of stuck in an airport. The next day, we still got mixed signals about how to check in. Then we found we had been given seats rows apart, despite being one booking. To be honest, we haven’t even taken this flight yet. Our rebooked flight on the following day is hours late and we’re waiting for it now. But I already know enough to post that I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "I was impressed. It’s like ANA run by native New Yorkers - newish planes, really good food (including chefs running around in white uniforms with the tall hats!), solid in-flight entertainment, and no nickel-and-diming on drinks, but the staff can be cold. I would definitely fly again, especially if the alternatives are United or American."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines' hub airport, Ataturk International in Istanbul, is a chaotic, surly mess. Part of this relates to the fact that it is simply too small for the volume of traffic it handles, but I also believe airport management deserves some blame. Problems include: * Most arriving Turkish Airlines flights empty out on the tarmac, and then you are bussed to the terminal, adding at least 20 minutes to the process. Some departing flights to North America also require bussing from a distant gate. * Rescreening is inconsistent - once it was some guy standing by a door giving a cursory glance to passports of transfer passengers. Another time, hundreds of people going through a full laptops-out-of-bags-take-off-your-belts xray procedure. * Signage is terrible. Arrows pointing where to go are insufficient (such as exiting the international terminal from the transfer area) and most gates do not automatically show the next flight scheduled to depart. * Gates are shown on the main displays only 2 hours in advance max, and even then seem to change — I saw several people miss their flights for this reason. * Not enough toilets in the terminal and lounges. * Airport staff and concessions workers are surly. I would like to stress that Turkish Airlines (the dominant carrier at Ataturk) is actually pretty good when it comes to the flights themselves. But the airport experience really brings down the brand, in my opinion. My advice to those who have a long layover: Spend $25-$40 dollars to hang out in one of the paid lounges, which have more space, free food, Wi-Fi, etc. You need an oasis in a place like Ataturk."
Pros: "The seats were very small. Luckily I had no one sitting next to me."
Pros: "Courtesy of crew and excellent service"
Cons: "not much variety of movies"
Pros: "Amazing food: large meals, fresh Orange juice, homemade lemonade,"
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old, the picture was not clear at all, grainy and colours were washes out. The touch screen barely reacted, but at least there was a large variety of travel shows to watch, and at least one movie I did watch."
Pros: "Food is the best ever on a airplane."
Cons: "I liked everything about flight. Food"
Pros: "Crew and boarding good. Entertainment was ok... personal entertainment devices are good, but the movies (aside from Godfather) were not a quality selection. Recommend a few more outstanding classics and lesser new releases."
Cons: "There were way too many babies on this flight, including two in my row of four middle seats. Please keep in mind that the best flight experience for your passengers involves no babies on a plane, and work towards this goal. Especially 10 hour flights. The food and drink on Turkish Air are usually excellent. We had one meal that was only rice and peppers.. I was unusually disappointed."
Pros: "Nice clean new plane, professional, friendly flight attendants, nice amenities."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic, gate did not have adequate seating, seats on plane were a bit cramped."
Pros: "I slept through much of the flight. Probably the only way I could have survived this flight without getting abgry. Boarding was more organized than previous flight."
Cons: "The crew was unbelievably rude. They were rude and racist.Differential treatment for Indian and other passengers (read white people) was meted and was very obvious. The crew seemed to be serving just white people. There was an attitude problem with almost all the staff. The crew needs an urgent lesson in hospitality. Food: Our menu options were some chicken and beef items. The crew served me some food without telling me what it was. As I was about to eat I realized that i was about to eat beef. I am a Hindu, I don't eat beef. I wasn't upset the crew served me beef. I am upset with what happened next. When I called her back to tell her I don't eat beef her response was "We don't have anything else " and she moved on. She never offered/served anything else. Not even a sandwich. And I was left hungry for the rest of my 10 hour flight. The 2nd meal that was served was vegetarian I assume buy I wasn't sure because the crew never told me. For most parts I was not offered anything to drink and I had to ask the crew for drinks. I travel internationally from the US every month. I go to India at least 4 times a year. However I have never been this badly treated by any airlines.Turkish airlines staff are racist which is really insane considering they are running international flights. If you don't want to serve Indians and other non-whites you should not operate out of these countries. We have plenty of other options. This was my first time travelling Turkish Airlines and there is no doubt in my mind that it will be the last."
Pros: "Great service and food. We were able to spread out and relax since there were empty seats nearby on return flight."
Cons: "The length of layovers - we had a 5 hour wait in Istanbul before the connection to Rome. The wait area was very uncomfortable and chaotic - so no way to relax after an overnight flight from USA."
Cons: "I ORDERED A WHEEL CHAIR FOR MOTHER. THERE WAS NO WHEEL CHAIR. I HAD TO GO TO SOS OFFICE A LONG DISTANCE AWAY TO GET HELP."
Pros: "food crew service drinks movie selection"
Cons: "Seat Size-width TV Touch Screen is hard to punch Seat Room- Forward-Backward"
Pros: "see the above"
Cons: "see the above"
