The flight was 4 hours late. We missed our flight to JFK.
I was in Seat 5K, Hand rest wont go down when on Sleep Flat Mode. Door opens slowly after closing. Even crew were surprised. Not cleaned properly. I have pictures of broken handle and old used tissues and covers if wanted.
Coach seats are just too cramped for an 14 hour and 45 minute flight. Not the airlines fault, that is just the way it is today. Great incentive to upgrade to Business Class, but that would have been an extra $970, not in the budget for my company. I will say this, the meals and flight attendants are world class, even in Coach. I had a blind woman sitting in front of me and the genuine care that the flight attendant proactively provided was heartwarming and inspirational. I was moved by the personal touch and genuinely sincere interest by the fight attendant in this woman's experience and safety. Every aspect of the journey, this particular flight attendant made the airline proud.
I liked the Crew . The food was terrible .I was starving. I couldn't eat the food.
Pros: "Awesome crew and comfortable flight. Food was good also!"

Pros: "The crew was good. Good movie selection."

Cons: "The check in at Denpasar is horrible. The airport services are very inefficient."
Cons: "It could be better if they serve food from Doha to Islamabad."
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Pros: "The service was super and the food was delicious even the seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was super"
Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"
Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"
Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"
Pros: "The crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
Pros: "Nice flight. Good service but it seems women dont get service men do. Ie my wife."
Cons: "Screening was arduous. Line for business class check in at counter was chaotic with no sense of order. A real mess. took over a half an hour and agents were processing coach passengers randomly and seemed oblivious to business class passengers who paid a significant price for the tickets."
Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
Cons: "On my flight from PHL to KHI, both legs had perfect head/necks that were adjustable. But on the flight from DOH to PHL, the neck rest was awful - it only adjusted vertically (unlike the other flights), and it was too thick so that my neck was in an extremely uncomfortable position for 14 hours - not fun!"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "A 350 was a very quiet plane, hardly any engine noise. Service was good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard."
Pros: "No proper meal provided"
Cons: "PROPER comfort zone not provided at all"
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."
Pros: "This flight failed its purpose of getting me there on time. The delay was not due to inclement weather. Paid more than other airlines charged to get a quick flight but ended taking longer than other flights."
Cons: "The flight left JFK almost an hour late so I missed my connecting flight to Kolkata. Was supposed to arrive Saturday morning for my Father’s funeral but would not make it on time now. A wasted and very disappointing trip! I bought a ticket which would get me there quickest but instead had an extra 8 or 9 hours with an extra stop in Mumbai and layover of 5hrs!"
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."
Pros: "Great food, great help when travelling with baby, affordable price. Entertainment system was a bit annoying with unusable unresponsive touchscreen and unintuitive menu."

Pros: "It was a direct flight with good food and movies to choose from"
Cons: "Small cramped seats in economy"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."
Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."
Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food and comfort."
Pros: "I wish this airline had more service within the US!! This airline is impeccable. We flew 16 hours from Doha to Miami and it was amazing. At the airport in Doha the flight representative went above and beyond to accommodate better seating for myself and my son. Luckily it was not a full flight and lots of the passengers had plenty of space. The staff is VERY friendly and VERY professional. I will definitely be giving this airline my hard earned money in the future for reservations as much as I can!!!!"
Cons: "Not one thing!!"
Cons: "A 7 hours trip from qatar to kuala lampur, and they serve only a sandwich which in the first place doesnt taste good."
Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"
Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"
Cons: "I had 2 checked in luggage, and both TSA lock on it was cut. Since it was TSA lock, I do not understand why both locks were cut instead of being opened with the international key. it cost me 10 USD it for the locks."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and decent crew."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food."

Pros: "This leg was generally worse than Boston to Dubai. The airline staff were less polite, borderline rude."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"

Pros: "Food, and space"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Dinner portions were too small."
Pros: "Same as first trip but this time the manager gave us some crackers and chocolate because we asked her to give us something to eat"
Cons: "Same as first trip but this time we were more mad and the food was like rubber we told the manager and she brought us some of the crews food and we still didn’t have any food because it smelled rotten"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick out seats and got stuck in a middle seat. No opportunity to change, even though I tried to do so a week before the flight as welll as once online check in opened."
Pros: "Traveling alone with a 1 year old the crew was fantastic. They gave me better seats with empty seats next to me. Helped entertain little one regularly on their own accord. Very friendly and helpful. Made a long exhausting more than trip doable"
Cons: "I didn’t like the airport in Dubai. Cleaners locked all the disabled toilets. I walked to 3 of them. Very difficult to use normal toilet and having to leave your baby & carry on outside when traveling alone!"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"

Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."

Pros: "nice plane , good crew, on time,"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets way over 6 months in advance for our honey moon and they did not sit us together on our 8 hr flight to milan. I always hear how people get complimentary upgrades in such a situation. Apparently not for us."

Clean plane, professional crew, good food, comfortable seat,
Great service, nice crew, 777300 is a great plane. They offer a nice Swiss chocolate at the end of the flight. This trip was very good - except for the check in process in Miami for my outbound flight
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "More entertainment"
Pros: "More or less on time"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Flight took longer than usual."
Pros: "The kindness of all people working on Swiss was very special"
Cons: "The food was not very special, but the chocolates were awesome"
Pros: "The app from Swiss air kept me informed and provided Soto checkin and boarding pass. Food was good, crew were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was very good as well as the entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The plane was small, it rattled and shook a lot and the size of the seats is ridiculous. The bathrooms did not have warm water and the sense of comfort is to be found only in business and first class. We fly to Zurich a lot because we have family there and we always take SWISS for a direct flight. They have old planes, the little TVs by the seats may or may not work and although the crew is nice and well trained, they cannot substitute for the discomfort of 10 hours flights in a crammed place. Sorry SWISS."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good. The crew did a great job of keeping the lavatories clean and stocked. It was a 10.5 hr flight and they gave us one meal, a snack and a treat. Not a lot but since we were just sitting it was enough food. We had to stop for a meal on the way home from the airport."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Pros: "Good, in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "There must be a way for crew to intervene and help parents with screaming infants or disruptive children. The flight noise/comfort was miserable"
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Pros: "I love SWISS"
Cons: "The touch screens are outdated and difficult to operate, especially when it comes to games"
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Swissair. They are so much better than the other airlines on the Europe - US flight. Food was very good, we even received an ice cream for extra snack. Kids received nice activity books. The movie selection was huge."
Pros: "The crew was amazingly kind and hospitable. The captain kept us informed continually of any changes which is something that as a passenger one really appreciates."
Cons: "As always, the economy chair area are small but roomier than other airlines."
Pros: "Service was great and the flight very smooth. Great flight!"
Pros: "On time performance with better than average crew with standard service"
Cons: "The entertainment leaves room for improvement. Could not eat the italian snack before landing."
Pros: "Special GF meals care on board, friendly staff, good food and drinks"
Pros: "Amount of times drinks, water, was served."
Cons: "The person in front of me reclined seat the whole trip. Very, very uncomfortable for me."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Cons: "I was randomly selected for a second security check at the boarding gate in Zurich airport, the security staff were unfriendly, said it was a TSA requirement even though I stated I am a United States Citizen and That I have already passed through a complete security check Point, still they placed a metal & scanning detector on my feet, hands & belt. This was a complete violation of my rights. Never have I faced a humiliating situation at any other airport. If this was a TSA requirement then everyone should be subject to a second security check."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There was a one hour wait to get through passport control and go to the gate beyond the security check point."
Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "Seats too small. Staff not friendly"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Excellent service, comfortable, clean, on time."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the middle of the night the night before, forced me to find another flight and re-book my morning 6:45am flight tickets at midnight for next morning. Not fun."
Pros: "Almost nothing.."
Cons: "1) my seat was broken (didn't recline) 2) my USB charger... Broken.. 3) my food was in a metal container that was stamped and the ink from the stamp leaked and was pressed across my food. I was literally not about to eat the alphabet... (luckily, a nice attendant came by and apologized, as I know it was not her fault the food came out like this. 4) Rude attendant came over 25 mins after I had turned on my attendant button to ask for a bottle of water. (I turned it on while they were still serving drinks) (also forgot I needed water to take some medicine that required to drink a full glass) She came up to me and my fellow passenger, yelled at BOTH us while she was waving her hands our face. I mentioned to her "it's not polite to treat people this way" she moved her hands closer to my face thrusting her whole body over my fellow passengers face, and continued yelling at me about turbulence (while she's completely avoiding the rule herself.) He and I were both seated and buckled and not bothering anyone. She could've just taken her own lecture and kept ignoring the signal. I wrote about this in customer support letter that the 'NICE' and 'Helpful' attendant Gave to me that sincerely apologized for the previous attendants behavior."
Cons: "Everything was very good except the TV screen on my wife's seat malfunctioned after the first movie watched. The crew "tried" to fix it but nothing happened, not blaming them specifically but I don't think they were to concerned about one customer with no entertainment. After a long while it started working again. It was a long flight to not have entertainment the whole duration of the flight. Besides this little problem it was a very good flight. Crew very professional and nice."
Cons: "The bar between the seats is not going up all the way"
Pros: "Very accommodating"
Pros: "Comfortable and safe flight"
Cons: "Up grade to business was really expensive m,normally Good company's like Austrian airlines charge almost %50. I buy the internet service from the plane it cost more Then $40 but it was bad service connection and work Only for 10 min!!i contact with Swiss about this almost 3/4 Times..but no one contact me back..!not happy at all!"
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Cons: "They charge you an extra $ 100 DOLLARS FOR THE OPTION TO PICK YOUR SEAT AND WHEN YOU CHECK IN THEY SAY THAT IT WAS JUST TO SIT IN THAT SECTION OF THE PLANE. WE PICKED OUR SEATS BY THE FRONT BULKHEAD AND WHEN WE CHECKED IN THEY REFUSED TO GIVE US THOSE SEATS BECAUSE THEY SAID OTHER PEOPLE PAID MORE THAN US TO HAVE THEM. THEY SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED FOR THIS KIND OF FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY."
Pros: "Crew were organized and pleasent. Lots of food."
Cons: "Seats in economy are tight."
Pros: "We were worried based on negative reviews on SWISS we had read prior to our trip, but they were WONDERFUL!! We flew coach from MIA to CRETE, two stops and 13+ hours of flying. The seats were as roomy as coach gets, but comfortable, reclining further than Delta or AA in my opinion. The food, drinks and snacks never stopped and were tasty!! Including a delicious Swiss chocolate a the end of your flight! They were so attentive! The attendants were all kind and polite. In fact, we had someone sit in front of us on our flight home who culturally didn't bath/wear deodorant and VERY malodorous and we asked the flight attendant if we could move. As soon as everyone boarded and she found two open seats for us, she moved us right before take off and we had a wonderful, great-smelling 10.5 hour flight!! LOL"
Cons: "There seems to only be 4 (plenty) bathrooms right in the center of the coach area of the plane, but with the flight attendants constantly serving drinks and food, you really had to time it so you could get to the bathrooms when they weren't in the aisles. Trust me though, this is hardly a negative and I will happily fly SWISS over and over!!!"
Pros: "The flight was very good what I didnt like in that when i booked the flight it never said that my ticket wouldnt be able to add lifemiles for star alliance. That was only the reason i chose this airline. When i ask about my lifemiles the answer was that my class of ticket didnt get any lifemile. I felt cheated. You should put it somewhere visibly so the person knows before booking. If i knew it before i never chose this airline."
Pros: "The courteous and helpful crew. The food and snacks."
Cons: "The cramped seats and the poor leg room."
Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "Flight from Delhi to Zurich was on time but from Zurich to Miami it was delayed by 4 hours. We sat in a hot plan for almost an hour 30 minutes and then decided to let us off the plan. I would like to ask for some compensation for this delay. Please have someone from Swiss international reach out to me. Thanks"

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food!"

Cons: "They didn't let me on the flight because I'm disabled pure disciminati"
Pros: "This was simply the best flying experience I have ever had in my life! From the courteous,professional and always available cabin crew to the comfort of the seat,from the quality of the food to the cleanliness of the craft, everything was just perfect. I traveled in economy class but it felt like king. I will make sure to fly SWISS again!Great great job!"

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work, my tv didn’t work either"
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Cons: "The food on the plain or snacks were to poor and not that tasty."
Pros: "WARDA at the Miami Gate H07 was awesome. She went above and beyond. Everyone else was very helpful but you can get tell she does more than the norm. LOVE LOVE LOVE the free entertainment in the individual seats. Perfect for families!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "If you can get it he people at the desk to stop making announcements while there are announcements being made over the airport PA system that would be great.

Cons: "When my flight with American Airlines cancelled, I felt so panicked because I needed to be in Florida on Saturday night. But thankfully, lady who works for American Airlines solved my problem on the phone in couple of minutes easily. After that, when we were boarding to the aircraft, there was a cabin attendant lady. She came to us and ask me and my mother if we can talk English.I answered her with yes we can, but she demands to talk with my mother. And English is not her native language, but it doesn't prove that she doesn't know it. She tried to ask questions to her like, "where were you today?" so we couldn't really understand the reason for her to ask those questions in the first place. So we couldn't really say anything. While we were talking about my mother's English, the all aircraft was watching us, and trying to figure out what was going on. After all, she made us to sit there and wait her to replace us with other passengers. We waited the whole aircraft to be seated, then she took us to another seat with my mother. I can understand that it is her job but I'm not sure, if it had to be that much discomfort. We got pretty upset about it and it affects our flight quality. Plus, while cabin crew serving beverages, they didn't really ask us anything. We needed to call them for our order. To be honest, I would never flight with Delta. It was a disappointment."
Pros: "Seating was very nice and a free move was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding is a free for all. People cannot find their seats and put their luggage in the overhead. Board the plane from the back first"

Cons: "We spent more time than scheduled waiting to take off"
Pros: "Nothing. My flight got canceled."
Cons: "Delta offered nothing for canceling my flight, rescheduling me on one over 24 hours later with two layovers to Miami. I lost money on hotel reservations and never even made it on my trip. Couldn’t reach delta for over 24 hrs to confirm whether I’d get a refund or not"

Cons: "One boarding agent for the whole plane and he was slow. Started boarding fairly early but didn't finish until 15 minutes after scheduled departure. Very cramped for 5 hour flight. Older model entertainment center. Paying for usual amenities. Crowded gate set up. Grumpy crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Very poor assistance for special needs customers. Excessive waits for wheelchairs. Ignored in London waiting to be escorted to gate."
Pros: "The plane was changed so some people had new seat and some not. The crew assigned tickets quickly at the entrance. Arrived 20 min earlier, which is great!"
Cons: "The peanut bad is now contains 13 peanuts, I counted them :).Where is a good food for a 3.5 hours flight?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Sandwiched between 2 big guys 1 of which should be made to buy 2 seats!!!!!!!"
Cons: "the passenger next to me was sick and shortly after takeoff projectile vomited in the seat. The flight attendant did not seem to think that it was a big deal and took his time attending to the sick passenger and relocating me."
Pros: "Best food. Best service. 45"
Cons: "Flying out of the Istanbul airport was horrible."
Pros: "Check in process, helpful ground crew and airplane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats are horrible for a trip so far, they need more cushion."
Pros: "This was superlative in every way...."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "We liked the ability to watch movies and television programs to pass the time."
Cons: "We did not like that to use Internet we had to pay an extra fee. We did not care for the food. We were not impressed with the cleanliness of the aircraft. We did not like that the bathrooms ran out of water to wash our hands. We did not like that flight attendants handled and served food with no water on the flight to wash their hands. Most flight attendants were unfriendly. The one gentleman that served us was pleasant. We really did not like that between the food service we saw virtually no flight attendants other than those sleeping in the area at the back of the plane. We did not like that we could not understand the announcements made. We did not like the fact that passengers were not reprimanded upon landing for using electrical devices and laptop computers even though an announcement had been made to turn all devices off and put them away. Once announcement was made not one flight attendant said anything to those people around us who did not follow the request. We did not appreciate the uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "My bag didn’t come"
Pros: "We made it in one piece"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hour delayed while passengers were on the plane. There was no communication whatsoever. Once we left, tv and entertainment along with WiFi were never working during the flight. Very small and uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "The seats. You are real greedy."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was horrible not friendly poor service"
Pros: "Plenty of options for entertainment. Enough room to be comfortable in economy."
Cons: "My suitcase was lost. The crew were less than helpful on flight. Food choices were limited. Boarding process was chaotic and unorganized. Flight left an hour late."
Cons: "I have been told at the airport that I had an unconfirmed flight and was told that I could not travel to Istanbul. I am still at my departure city, in Chicago. I bought my tickets just like anybody would, go on the website, pick the flights and pay. But someone did not do their job correctly and did not correctly confirm my flight. I paid for this incompetence by missing Christmas and a business meeting. Do not think it will never happen to you, it is just a matter of time that this kind of bad service catches up to you. The system is so disconnected or careless that it can't even figure out I couldn't take the flight which it is is asking me a review for."
Pros: "From beginning to end - it was a great flight. Food was exceptional as well as service."
Cons: "Flights delayed, crew members from the plane need to speak better english and be more helpful with passengers."
Cons: "Customer service was very poor while we were struggling to get back to the US while the hurricane was coming to FL. We tried twice to fly home earlier because we knew the flights were going to get cancelled but the airlines wanted to charge us $1500 for that. So when the time came and the flights got cancelled they were trying to adjust the flights and we got stranded away from our kids. Overall it was not a great experience as far as their customer service and we were not happy with how they chose to handle things."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Cons: "I was happy with everything"
Cons: "The service was very professional."
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: "Food was fine"
Cons: "Plane left late."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew, food and entertainment"
Cons: "Connection time between arrival time from Tel Aviv to Miami was very short. We had to sprint from the transit security area, through the crowded main terminal, to gate 705 to our sole connecting flight to Miami. A bus or other form of transportation should be provided to gates that are very far away. We were the last ones to board. Private security staff at the gate prior to boarding the bus to take us to the plane confiscated my Bluetooth headphones under the assumption that they fell under TSA's prohibited electronic devices (which they do not). When on board the plane, I noticed another passenger with similar headphones which were not confiscated- selective enforcement."
Pros: "Service and people"
Cons: "Long lines and security pat downs...."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines did not transfer my bag. I am still waiting to find out if it has been routed to MLX."
Pros: "Crew was generally clean and professional but not necessarily super alert."
Cons: "They did not regulate seating ruled well enough which led to others in the plane wondering around drunk during seat belt on moments and falling on me twice while I was trying to sleep. Not only was that frustrating but it is not safe to have people up and about when the captain requests seatbelts."
Cons: "it was so HOT!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Please give food preferences while booking ticket"
Pros: "Cleanliness, wonderful crew,"
Cons: "The TV on my seat was not working"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "On board entertainment."
Cons: "Customer Service. They cancelled my flight in the middle of my vacation and just sent me an email moving my flights to next day. Unacceptable!!! I paid for it 4 months in advance. One cannot change my arrival from Sunday night to Monday night. Called Customer Service 20+ times to have it fixed. They are all outsourced incompetent and unprepared. Good planes overall, but horrible customer service. I will never fly Turkish again. I prefer to pay more and have decent customer service and no flights cancellations in the middle of my vacation."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Friendly workers"
Cons: "I upgraded and paid for first class round trip but only got it for my flight to italy and not the flight back to miami. Economy is too cramped for such long flights and they are not as attentive as in first class"
Cons: "The plane was half empty yet they say everyone uncomfortable towards the front."
Pros: "I have flown with all big airlines including Lufthansa, BA, Delta, American and others. This flight was by far the best experience I had. They have lovely serving crew so no one actually hesitates to ask or want something. They have helped me and my two toddlers along with 3 other similar families of an incredible amount to make sure they are all comfortable. No wonder that received the best airline of europe award for several years in a row...There was only a 20 minutes delay during take-off and we still arrived home a bit early... Very smooth flight, one that I still cant believe I had with my 2 toddlers. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "Boarding was fine in Istanbul. Go to toilet before going through security check in the gate."
Cons: "Poor crew service--amazingly slow (my general THY service experience has been great, but in this leg crew did not respond to calls for almost 20-30 minutes). After meals, most people took their own empty trays to return them behind (because the crew had not picked up after 30+ minutes). The meals arrived cold as well. My entertainment set froze after 4 hours in a 13 hours trip, and was not attended to after repeated calls. One conscientious Turkish stewardess was very helpful in the 9th hour (literally), even if the entertainment did not come back on. To top these, I was sandwiched between a teenager on front and teenagers on right, who were loud and generally weird (obviously not the airlines fault). So, it ended up being a mediocre experience overall."
Pros: "The desk personnels from the Philippines (flight from Phils to Istanbul) were very accommodating when I requested if the plane was not full that I could be seated on an area where the other seat was not occupied. Very professional with smiling faces."
Cons: "So now, this would be the opposite (big time), this lady personnel on the desk (flight from Istanbul to Miami), when I asked her for the same request, she did not even look on the computer and quickly stated that the plane was full. I travel a lot so I just know that this person was lying and sure enough when everyone boarded, they were empty seats. I should have gotten her name because she was just plane lazy and unprofessional, it showed that she did not like her job. I paid an expensive Turkish plane ticket, so I deserve that courtesy and I would fully understand anyway if there were no seats at all but please don't even take your costumers like a fool."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Food and drink was OK"
Cons: "No AC while passengers on board waiting for take off. It lasted about half an hour. people were forced to use airline magazines as fans. No TV news or sport to watch Toilet was not clean. My seat can recline easily without pushing the recline bottom. This was a connection flight. Passengers had to go through 4 check points. Too much redundant. At the last check point, 4 gates shared the same check point. We saw a line but no sign for it. So we went to the front to find out what the line was for and went back to join the line for security check. There were people who did the same thing but tried to cut in the line right at the check point, creating chaos."
Pros: "It's the first time we use Turkish Airline and ,the ride was pleasant and comfortable, crew is friendly , meal was tasty ..."
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Seats handles were too low--could never sit fully upright and rest my arms. Not a comfortable flight."
Pros: "awesome services and food"
Cons: "food services time"
Pros: "same as above with fligt from Mumbai to Miamis"
Cons: "same as the return flight.Did not like the food"
