Food was unappetizing and would have just preferred more fruits instead of the bland meals"

Pros: "Air craft"

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . A350 was one of the best planes Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy Entertainment system was too good"

Pros: "Everything?"
Cons: "Nothing?"

Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"

Cons: "Snack options were a bit limited for such a long flight"

Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."

Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"

Cons: "Well I had 13 hours of layover. I was extremely tired and sleepy."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"

Pros: "I actually loved everything about the entire flight experience. Everything was awesome (Minus a 1-hour airport delay that was out of control of the airlines)."
Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"

Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."

Pros: "Excellent friendly service"

Pros: "Cabin was very nice with modern equipment and food and refreshments were provided frequently. Entertainment options were great too. Cabin crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "Connecting flight from Philadelphia to Doha was delayed by 5 hours due to some technical errors. By the time we arrived in Doha, there were no more planes heading to Manila. We did get booked a free night's stay in a hotel in Doha along with transport to the airport"

Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "As always the space"

Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "The service was okay"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "Journey was ok."

Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"

Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."

Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."

Cons: "Staff service was not good"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"

Cons: "I don't need to be forced to look at advertisement of Dubai airport and then Dubai itself right before landing, when I have 10 minutes of movie left"

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Comfortable airplane overall."
Cons: "There is no Wifi service during the trip !! And the crew says because it’s short trip there’s no Wifi!!! Not the acceptable excuse , food in business class could be much better"

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "I love everything and I will flight with them again . A very positive experience."

Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable because it did not convert into a completely horizontal bed. The small incline meant that I could not get comfortable and could not sleep. The screens remain on even when passengers go to sleep, making it very bright in the cabin. It would be good if staff could walk through and turn them off manually."

Pros: ",,"

Pros: "Everything was well done! Great customer service."

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Pros: "Really exceptional service! Very impressed!"

Pros: "My first and hopefully not last flight on one of the world's best airlines."

Pros: "Every thing about Emirates was first class Including the CREW!!"
Cons: "It was a bit too cold but it did get better afterwards"

Pros: "Layout of plane is very convenient , bathroom acessable, no crowding in isles. Love the dining cards & choice of meals, and the comfort features ( blankets , pillows , toiletry bag) The entertainment center is also amazing! Perfect for long flights. So many choices & also power usage also great for the passengers on long flights. Also, normally I try not to use the lavatory, they are usually awful, but these make the most of their space, warm water, nice soap,colognes,seat liners."
Cons: "Apparently, operational issues in Athens, no information of why we had to go to an additional security at the gate, including a litmus test, go through our bags again & a light pat down! They also wanted us to board separately, which made my travel partner even more anxious than she already was!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "on the plane the service was okay"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, barely got in. At the gate they checked carry on baggage weight and charged extra. They could have done it during check in.... pathethic"

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "It was ok, average."
Cons: "The reclining function of my seat was broken, smaller seats and too high air conditioning."

Pros: "THE ICE"
Cons: "Luggage handling for overwait hand luggages"

Pros: "Newer plane. Good options for entertainment."
Cons: "Again NOT impressed with busing out to plane and hiking up steep set of stairs in the heat of the day in Dubai. The bus ride was long and there were few seats for elderly, disabled, moms holding kids, etc."

Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."

Pros: "Overall feeling on board, comfy seats and leg room, high standard of screen and remote control, free 2h wifi for all, quality of food and drinks"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly. On my first flight I wasn't even asked if I would like to drink something even though not sleeping and waiting to be asked (I think my complete line was forgotten), there was no smile and kindness, when entering the plane 2 people in front of me did not need to show their tickets so I put mine away - of course I had to show mine a 4th time then and look for it. So annoying. They all look pretty but could definitely be more service orientated."

Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."

Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."

Pros: "It was good services"

Cons: "My baggage was ripped and the material inside was damaged. Never expected that from Emirates."

Cons: "Not having enough chicken food by the time they serve the last few rows."

Cons: "Seats are bit congestive, but ok"

Pros: "Entertainment screens good - good range of music and also internet accessible"
Cons: "Food not very appetising. I did not eat much of it."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and the meals were more than one would expect (still airplane food though). In flight entertainment was pretty robust and the inflight care packages (sleep mask, toothbrush/paste) were a nice touch. Although my wife and I were jealous of the business class luxury we were very satisfied with our 15 hour flight."
Cons: "no complaints!"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."

Pros: "Food, service and the crews behavior to be honest I'm very satisfied from that flight so I recommend all my friends to try once on Emirates. I really appreciate for the services."
Cons: "There is nothing to mention that I didn't like it everything was on time."

Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."

Pros: "The flight was amazing. The crew was nice and professional. They constantly checked up on us, as well. The food was good for food during a flight and there was nothing lacking in the entertainment department either. There is really not much Emerates could do to make the flight more pleasant."
Cons: "The check in experience is the worst I have ever had. One bag was a little heavy so I had to pay the fee which I was happy to do. But, they took me out of line and up to the office, I then had to wait 30 minutes to be helped only to then learn that the credit card machine was not working. So, I had to get cash from an ATM, which charged a fee, and there was no change available so I ended up paying more than the fee actually was. Then, I had to go back through security and stand in line again just to get my boarding pass. I was at the airport 3 hours early and this disorganized system almost caused me to miss my flight. It was just unprofessional all around."

Pros: "Seating was good in business class"
Cons: "Toilet signs not working , food , service ,"

Pros: "plain was big and clean entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "they lost 2 pieces of my luggage one of them was a wheelchair and there was a delay in takeoff"

Pros: "comfortable and new airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude with a very bad attitude and not friendly."

Pros: "service"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "I flew Business and it's like first class all the way. Seats are so comfortable-entatinment and a lounge area that feels like a top one With drinks and food-you can almost forget you're on a plane. Helpful. Flight attendants and great food and wine meal selections Fabulous airline I chose for long flights. Incomparable"
Cons: "I loved it all!"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "I have heard my friends complain about the baggage check in process for the middle eastern flights was worst..but emirates were actually very helpful with the procees."

Cons: "Great flight. No issues."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Luggage that had to be checked at the gate was not immediately available when we landed."

Pros: "N/a"

Pros: "The crew was nice. They did a very good job under the circumstance."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour because of an error on Delta‘s part. They did not verify people as they were boarding. Further the person in 17 F was doing video chat as we were preparing to take off and he had very foul language throughout the flight. The crew never said anything."

Cons: "Delayed flight ruined it."

Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give back money"

Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Landed early."

Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The temperature, it was kind of hot."

Pros: "Not much I liked"
Cons: "The crew were the worst Delta crew I’ve ever had. Sat 1st class and waited 1 hour from sitting in my seat untill I was offered a beverage. Asked for a snack and was told to wait until the basket was brought around, 20 minutes later. Asked for coffee, it was terrible and served with attitude."

Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."

Pros: "small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "respectful size seat"

Pros: "On time this time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No video screen"

Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"

Pros: "Good customer service in person"

Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."

Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"

Pros: "Not like"
Cons: "I have Sky Team Elite Plus Platinum but not fare anything!"

Pros: "Ease of check in and friendly people"
Cons: "Marta"

Pros: "Did not wait for luggage."
Cons: "Food was marginal. Equipment had low ceiling under carry on shelf. No entertainment."

Pros: "Delta provided great entertainment options and it felt like endless food and drinks. The seats were also a bit more spacious than usual"

Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"

Pros: "The exit row seat on this leg out of PHL to SLC did recline! No need for Delta Comfort+ unless you want to get off of the plane ... faster."
Cons: "For some reason, the pilot couldn't figure out how to adjust the cabin temperature for the first hour or so. This made the flight (and I was sitting in an exit row seat, right by the door which is usually cooler) uncomfortably hot and muggy. Food? No food. Thank goodness for Delta Lounge (even if it was the one in PHL). Just snacks make this a poor option for many. I don't know what is up, but the USB charger on the two monitors didn't work and neither did the outlet between the seats. And I have two different sets of cables "just in case" and they're the 3-in-1 so I can try to charge multiple devices (Apple, Android and Samsung) but nothing worked."

Pros: "Staff personalities"
Cons: "Waited extra 20 mins after door closed to-complete loading luggage"

Pros: "Staff was very courteous, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "There was no TV's on this flight."

Pros: "There was one helpful lady"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted and rebooked twice. I’m stuck in Detroit overnight, and won’t be getting to Monterrey until tomorrow afternoon. Thanks, delta!"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Uneventful flight - boarding was great and there were no hassles."
Cons: "No food. No onboard entertainment."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."

Pros: "Flight attendants were really kind"
Cons: "We were an hour late to leave so I missed my connecting flight and am currently stuck in Minneapolis for nearly 8 hours now"

Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."

Pros: "We were probably in the air for 30 mins; great short flight. Plane wasn’t filled so had plenty of space."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."

Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"

Pros: "Flight attendant insisted to take my jacket. She didn’t return led. I forgot jacket in Cincinnati"
Cons: "I need my jacket"

Pros: "As usual, Delta staff and crew did their best to make the flight quite enjoyable and smooth."

Pros: "one i got to gate i could relax"
Cons: "scary making connection from AA flight arriving int'l terminal"

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."

Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."

Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."

Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."

Pros: "Service was great. Seating was OK. It was a brand new vehicle, so the (climate/air handling) was great."
Cons: "Boarding was not well organized."

Pros: "I liked that I didn't have to pay for a carry on and the blanket they gave me in flight to stay warm it was a great flight."
Cons: "Only dislike was that the flight was ending other than that no problems"

Cons: "We were late, no TV screens, bad food and I can go on and on"

Pros: "Horrible service, airline left passengers completely stranded after missing connection due to delay"
Cons: "Minimally caring about their customers doesn't seem too unreasonable an expectation, and yet no Turkish airline employee could be bothered to help."

Cons: "they allowed either carryon or a personal pack"

Pros: "Very comfortable seats & clean"
Cons: "Not applicable."

Pros: "Yes on your ticket you ask me to have one bag luggage 1 piece max 40 insted when I reach air port LHR they refused then it cost me 85£ extra to buy new bag I am sending my clam to soo"

Pros: "The seat is comfortable"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food was late and terrible seating arrangements were horrible they placed my infant in a different section don’t recommend it if you are old or traveling with family"

Cons: "Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information. Arrived in Istanbul with a very tight connection. Airplane was not given a gate so we needed to take a bus to terminal. The bus dropped us just about as far from our connecting gate as possible. Since it took four buses to transport passengers, one could have been designated for US bound transfer passengers (who were all leaving from same group of gates) and taken us directly there."

Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Pros: "Food was excellent. The built in entertainment from movies to games was amazing! It saves you space from having to pack a bunch of electronics."
Cons: "I always enjoy a window seat but the people next to me didn't get up at all! So I was stuck sitting and didn't have a chance to stretch my legs. Not the airlines fault of course. If you put your seat back a little, it just pushes your knees farther forward."

Cons: "Boarding took a longer time than normal"

Pros: "Movie options were good. Even though I didn't use it, they offer 2 checked bags for free in the economy class compared to the standard 1 that most airlines give."
Cons: "Nothing specifically. It was a pretty standard flight experience."

Pros: "Always excellent"

Pros: "Everything was exellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew - very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The food was Ok...the rice was a bit hard The sound on the entertainment system was not clear"

Cons: "I like everything"

Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Good enough food."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. No need at all for those foot rests."

Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"

Cons: "The flight from Antalya to Istanbul was late so we almost missed our connection flight. This story is repeating with your airline at 29th July our Turkish Airlines flight from Sarajevo was late for 3hours so we were running at Ataturk Airport to catch connection flight to Istanbul even though we booked 4 hours delay in Istanbul. Regards, Edin"

Pros: "No delays Courtesy of crew Very pleasant fly"

Cons: "Seats could be a little more comfortable, not enough legroom."

Pros: "this particular plane had PLENTY of leg room, I could really stretch out and take a nap. Just depends which plane you fly on Turkish. Food is good for plane food."
Cons: "I don't know if English speaking is a requirement for the crew, but it was difficult to ask questions to the crew in English, even simple questions like "Could I see what the cake looks like to choose my snack?" This didn't really interfere too much with the flight"

Cons: "Uncomfortable flight from LAX to Istanbul. No leg room at all in coach compared to many other airlines Ive flown."

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!"

Pros: "There is nothing bad that I can say about the trip. From the hot towels to refresh yourself to the friendly crew to the food. The entertainment choices were good and easy to use. I would defiantly fly with them again."

Cons: "Wheel chair flyers should get first assistant"

Cons: "after plane landed, we stayed one (1) hour on the run way till the plane could find a gate to pull into. After as 14 hour flights, this was the icing on the cake!!!"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."

Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my special dietary request"

Pros: "Excellent!"

Cons: "Flight left late, bathroom was very dirty, and for some reason everyone around me got a meal, but I did not! I usually really like flying with Turkish, but this flight was disappointing."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Pros: "The ride was comfortable and smooth. I loved the Turkish Air lounge in Istanbul and also the movie screen was easy to use, although there was a problem with the screen on my flight from Istanbul to Hong Kong."
Cons: "The food was good but some of the appetizers were not that good. The red wine was not so good, tasted cheap."

Pros: "Everything was top notch.. the food, the service, the overall experience."

Cons: "The plane was half empty yet they say everyone uncomfortable towards the front."

Pros: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."

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: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "Stewardesses were friendly flight and plane accommodation was great they fed us even gave us little things like a mask to sleep better and slippers for feet to make us comfortable and a blanket and a pillow to make us comfortable and the seats were comfortable and they fed us three times"
Cons: "It's a long flight but obviously there's nothing they can do about that"

Cons: "Flight was very late departing, despite arriving on time. No excuse other than simply inefficiency. No drinks offered, during 45 min flight. No headphones given for entertainment."

Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."

Cons: "old and boring entertainment movies for a 7 hour trip. The cabine had no USB port or electrical port."

Pros: "three seats for myself no security check between flights"
Cons: "interruption of sleep because of meals -serving earlier dinner and later snack would have been more restful"

Pros: "Great entertainment system. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."

Cons: "My food was allready open. And the flight attendant who gave it to me was ride throughout the plane ride. No USB. :("

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."

Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"

Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
