Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

Pros: "ICE is amazing, excellent food also in economy, comfortable seats."
Cons: "If you sit on the double seats in the back you have to wait a lot to get off the plane."

Cons: "Maybe the only thing the tea was not hot enough."

Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash"
Cons: "We were offered no form of refund, miles, or anything after a 6 hour layover. We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

Cons: "IAD-->DXB--?AMM; Airlines took my stroller from me before boarding the first flight to Dubai(at gate), and they gave it to me in Amman. WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"

Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."

Pros: "Comfortable and Well cared for during the flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair help in Dubai is horrible. They need a disabled or aged person on their staff to understand our problems Too many carriage changes and unnecessary location changes. We do not need a guide to understand where to go and lead us along. We need physical help."

Pros: "The seats were good, more reclining than Etihad, Luftansa and United airlines and a good leg space, although I'm 5'4. Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "Cleaniness was really bad. There was a puddle of water in the washroom and even after informing the crew twice noone cleaned it."

Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"

Pros: "1. Check-in counter staff is nice 2. Entertainment systems are nice."
Cons: "1. Issue with crew, one of crew member forgot to serve food and after reminding they did not have vegetarian option hence have to stay without food, disappointed with kind of service even after booking ticket with competitive price and providing meal choice in advance. Somehow they managed a vegetarian meal but didn't provide any cutlery to eat which is highly unacceptable. Apologies don't serve any purpose if the passenger remains hungry just because of ignorant staff. 2. About entertainment option, less new bollywood movie choices"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "None"

Pros: "Confy"
Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"

Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse.

Pros: "Service was great, choices for each meal were plentiful, flight was smooth..pilot alerted you when slight turbulence would occur"
Cons: "Wish the first class pods weren't only for first class"

Pros: "Nothing at all,I had a horrible flight"
Cons: "timing and be more respectful to the costumers, and be nice"

Pros: "I like that the FAs gave us all the things needed for a comfortable flight...thanks."
Cons: "Flight from Copanhagen to Istanbul was delayed for an hour...computer malfunction was the reason. I was a little bit stressed because I had a connecting flight to Manila, was afraid i wouldn't make it. And also, no gate assignment yet for Istanbul to Manila. Since it was my first time to travel via Turkish Airline, not familiar with Istanbul airport."

Pros: "Not too long of a flight. Clean toilets and nice smelling soap and lotion. Decent entertainment selection."

Pros: "Food was good. One thing I like about Turkish Arilines is that the plastic containers they use for food are a variety of shapes and sizes. This really helps the food service seem less industrial."
Cons: "Check-in was ludicrously slow, though that may have been due more to customers than to staff... Entertainment system at my seat not functioning."

Cons: "My taxi crashed on the way to Izmir, I missed my flight to Istanbul and my connection to Dublin in still stuck in Istanbul"

Pros: "leaving and arrival on time."
Cons: "No leg space in economy."

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Would highly recommend"

Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"

Pros: "Overall the experience was good. Cabin crew helpful."
Cons: "while going to US from Mumbai -Wheelchair service at Istanbul was found unsatisfactory. The attendanct was unfriendly adamant and rude. overall the wheel chair persons were neglected by the airlines (even at Boston ) but the cabin crew took care of all wheel chair persons."

Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 40 min."

Pros: "Ground & air crew was very nice on all steps."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I was woken up for food but I like to eat so it didn't bother me much. Another airline I flew before left a note one my seat informing me they came by and to ring when I awoke for food, that was even better maybe try something like that for sleeping guests."

Cons: "Yet my flight coming in had delays and again this flight was delayed. In addition, when I approached the ticket counter to inform them of the delay cutting close to my connecting flight, the response is "you're fine...you'll make it". During the deplaning process no announcement to have those with critical connecting flight was made to expedite the process."

Pros: "Turkish airlines is a very friendly airline. They did a good job of making sure people were taken care of."
Cons: "I was traveling with a group and wasn't able to be seated with my group for any of my flights including a 12 hour transatlantic flight. For whatever reason, I couldn't actually check in for my flight and select seats prior to arriving at the airport. This happened with each ticket I purchased through every other agency except for orbitz.com. Not sure if that was a Turkish Airlines issue or a kayak.com issue, but it was very frustrating. When we arrived at the airport, we could no longer be seated together because everyone else had already checked in online and selected their seats for an overbooked flight. One of my group members was issued a standby ticket and almost didn't get on one of the flights that we paid a lot of money for. I would call this travel experience subpar, but I don't entirely blame Turkish Airlines for this."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Rude customers in plane"

Cons: "The seats were hard and lacked legroom"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled without any notification and a choice to reschedule."

Pros: "It was a full plain but overall ok I will take this flight again"

Pros: "The plane has a lot of restrooms"
Cons: "he crew was not available at all Time"

Pros: "I got a special meal -- Asian Vegetarian -- and it was delicious. I have also had the regular Vegetarian on other Turkish Air flights and they have been great too. So congratulations on good food! I just have one suggestion about the food: Just because someone is vegetarian, it doesn't mean that they don't want dessert! I notice that where others have chocolate pudding, for example, I get fruit. I like fruit... but a piece of cake or some other sweet is good too!"
Cons: "The pull-down food trays are often angled down so that the food slips into your lap. I often have to hold the cup or glass so it doesn't slip off."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and interactive. Entertainment was preety good."
Cons: "long waiting queues for checkin even if you checked in online."

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Pros: "The crew were amazing.. very helpful and accommodating! The food was also 5 stars, and the entertainment was great! Enjoyed every minute of it!"
Cons: "Boarding was not really done according to groups A, B, etc, but it was only a small holdup.. really nothing much at all :) Comfort was great, although a little more leg room might have been nice. But again, not a really big deal!"

Pros: "am very satisfaction with my flight, Food was excellent .also the service to.I am so happy I chose kayak"

Pros: "Turkish airlines had great food, were very accommodating, the seats had plenty of space, and it was an overall great experience. I will definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "Overall it was a smooth flight except for few minor issues."
Cons: "I noticed there were one or two times where the host had a list of food specifications but the trolley itself didn't have the kosher or vegetarian meals as requested by the passengers."

Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"

Cons: "So far, it has been a horrendous experience with Turkish Airlines. Airlines don't know how to handle uncertain situation, whole system collapses. Total disaster!!!!"

Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."

Pros: "The food was decent, as well as the movie selection."
Cons: "The crew were incredibly rude, it was badly organised, there we delays on our flights, the boarding process was a nightmare. After booking both mine and my boyfriend's tickets we were later warned that there will be an 8 hour lay over instead of the expected 3 hour (as booked). I will try my very best to avoid Turkish Airlines in the future. After taking many long haul flights in my life, I can safely say that this was my worst and most disorganised travel."

Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."

Pros: "Standard business seats for short distance. Roomy seats ( business class) . Good service with breakfast."
Cons: "No entertainment system in seat"

Pros: "The entire trip was very good when though it was very long due to the stop over in turkey. The flight was very good ( business class). Service and food was outstanding. The seats were good. Laying down was still a bit tight due to the armrests remaining in the same position. The crew was extremely nice and always helpful. The Turkish Air lounge on Istanbul is great and makes the united lounge in SFO look like a soup kitchen. I would fly Turkish air again."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff were helpful, the food was it's usual high quality and it was possible to grab a a snack or drink during flight if you wanted one without bothering the flight crew"
Cons: "I found the announcements at the start of the flight a little annoying as they were timed to continually interrupt the films I'd chosen, but I prefer that to not being able to start a film while taxiing."

Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"

Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I missing my bag 10 days and no any details"

Pros: "fOOD WAS GOOD"
Cons: "didn't LIKE THAT I DIDN'T GET AN AISLE SEAT AS I WAS ASSIGNED."
