Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half. The system kept throwing my son and I out of two different movies every five minutes. I got fed up and decided to listen to music.

Pros: "The quality of every aspect of this much shorter flight on a smaller plane was not diminished from the good experience we had on the overnight leg of our journey on a bigger plane. This has not been our experience on some other airlines."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Could not order my special meal in advance, because of turkish airlines website problems, and ended up fasting"
Cons: "Flight attendants are not very nice. Food got much worse compare to previous years Boarding was very long because of the crazy check"
Pros: "Flight itself was comfortable even though it was very full. Good, well maintained airplane. Great pillow and blanket. Somewhat hard seat. Love the newspapers they give us to read - what a selection."
Cons: "Istanbul airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected. Finally, lack of water fountains in the airport is also a problem."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "food was good."
Cons: "narrow seating space, no reclining. my entertainment system stopped working in middle of flight just after making my original playlist. also overhead bins were not enough."
Cons: "less seat space"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean. Food was fresh and tasted good. Entertainment included a wide variety of new movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Service was mediocre and poor at times. The staff did not communicate with the passengers. There was an hour delay in take off as we sat on the plane and no explanation. There was also some delay in landing which seems due to poor weather but not communication. They seem nice but could use better training."
Pros: "food was excellent"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport could not tell me the gate of my connecting flight in a timely manner."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "فى رحلة الذهاب فقدنا شنطة وكان الفطور جدا ضعيف لأ يلق بطيران وصلنا مطار اسطنبول تعامل سيئ جدا من الموظفين. هناك مشكلة في الدولة صحيح لاكن تعامل جدا سيء"
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "We had a connecting flight in Instanbul, Turkey, and a representative met us at our arrival gate from Rome and walked us through security and to our connecting flight to LAX. I thought that was great because we would've been completely lost if we had to do it on our own. Security check in was thorough. We had to go through security screening AGAIN (already did it in Rome and had to throw away our waters purchased in the airport), and two different lines for passport check. My husband had to go through a third security line because he had a carry-on. Boarding was well organized with passengers lining up by their boarding letter - no crowding - and people sitting at the back of the plane boarded first (after 1st class). The flight itself was great. The food was delicious. The orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. They gave us a water bottle, lots of current and blockbuster movies to choose from. They provided pillows, blankets, and earphones at no extra charge. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight. They woke us when it was time to eat. Not sure why they didn't just let us sleep, and then give us our food when we woke up. Not really a big deal since I wanted to stay awake on the flight home, but I may have wanted to sleep."
Pros: "Was lucky to be upgraded to Business and enjoyed the premium service and convenience . Being upgraded from time to time is the reward for loyalty and I appreciate the recognition"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, we wanted to get on the Skopje flight instead, but were told it's left already. We knew it didn't. After some back and forth we were put on the Skopje flight and arranged our own transportation to Prishtina. We learned later that the evening flight to Prishtina, which we were supposed to be put on originally, was also cancelled. If we didn't insist, we would have had to spend at least 24 hours stuck in Istanbul airport. If you've ever flown through there, you know it's one of the worst airports ever."
Pros: "awesome services and food"
Cons: "food services time"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. Stiching placement is very bad and hurts. We had to turn back and switch plane after some technical issue. We landed in Budapest with more than 3 hrs delay."
Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"
Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option! Amazing staff!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Having seen so many ads promoting the quality and service of Turkish Aurlines, I was quite disappointed in the end. Only the entertainment and seat facilities were good."
Cons: "The boarding was a mess in Istanbul. My pre-booked seat was changed in the last minute despite asking to be located in a similar area. The staff were not attentive."
Cons: "canceling our flights and lying to us on the phone after we pay extra for daytime flights"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"
Cons: "Travelling with my 70yr old mother.. Man sitting in front of her would recline and his head was practically in her lap. Neither of our seats reclined so it was upward bound only for almost 11hrs."
Pros: "I liked everything, Air Canada and Lufthansa did everything to facilitate travel for the passengers during these uneasy times. Everything is really well organized, on schedule, with outmost courtesy and effort"
Pros: "Quiet flight in fairly empty flight"
Cons: "food choices, no blanket"
Cons: "Food is awful if you compare with other major airlines products. Very old plane"
Pros: "The flight was on time, it was overnight - very convenient"
Cons: "I had very noisy neighbours, but it is hardly airline's fault"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "During serving food-i was sitting on the aisles in the middle chairs-some times they served me from the far away."
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "lots of leg room and entertainment program has lots more choices to choose."
Pros: "The ✈️ and timing"
Cons: "Amounts of food is ridiculously little for someone who gets hungry fast"
Pros: "Flying with Lufthansa as usual was another great experience! The staff at Pearson was helpful. The crew was awesome. Overall happy. But NOT with Kayak."
Cons: "The booking with Kayak was a disappointment! After booking, kayak informed me that I will receive confirmation from LH. I did. There it said 1 piece of luggage is free. However, at the airport I was told that bc I booked with Kayak there are other regulations. The LH receipt where it said FREE didn't count. I paid 60$ per luggage per person. I was mislead!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "The pods were great on 777"
Cons: "Couldn't plug in CPAP"
Pros: "The crew, the smooth safe flight, the cleanliness"
Cons: "The flight was delayed!! Very inconvenient."
Pros: "I liked the movie selection, the service, and food/drinks."
Cons: "With a 20 minute layover, I barely made the flight and my checked bags/luggage did not make it. This had a horrible influence on my trip and I am heavily disappointed in Air Canada."
Pros: "The tvs are awesome! They are new and have touchscreens that are actually well designed and can scroll etc. Resolution and sound are great, so I actually feel like I watched my movie and didn't just look at moving blurs with half the dialogue missing. Also the USB ports are great. And the brownie with the meal was delicious."
Cons: "Only one meal on a >9 hour flight, plus one snack which was an uninspiring-looking rectangle of cold pumpkin loaf (it tasted good, but after 7.5 hours in the air it'd be nice to get something more appealing). Other airlines give two meals. It's ridiculous that Air Canada insists on being so stingy with the food."
Pros: "Quiet night flight, friendly service and ok entertainment."
Cons: "No surprise but food definitely nothing special, disliked big fees for baggage."
Pros: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and that's understandable, my luggage however was lost and I was not fully informed about the delayed luggage process with Air Canada. Now I will be at least 4, maybe even 5 days without my luggage at an international destination."
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Littled staffed"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Departure lunge has bizarre layout. Most seating is in cafe's. No separate seatin area for boarding meant a melee around the gate blocking th path of people walking passed. Premium Economy seats were hard and uncomfortable, meals were below par and the entertainment system sound was shot. I tried three seats and each were unintelligible. Crew was less than stellar."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I was rebooked even though I could have make the connection. I had only a carry on so the luggages were not an issue."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable cabin"
Cons: "Brusque nature of some of the attendants"
Pros: "The staff is old school and very hard on single travelers who are not white Very rude when I asked some questions ,,.. They seem to think low bout the bout their Indian customers .. They need to be educated some of the Indians can be law abiding and decent people who Can be citiEns of Europe or the US Their thinkng is very racial or prehistoric Only reason I didn't make a scene of it is because I was jet lagged Be careful next time or just don't give me a ticket !!"
Cons: "Racist MF staff"
Pros: "Nice new plane Decent food Very clean Friendly staff Ok entertainment"
Cons: "People had a lot of bags, and their zone boarding concept means I got on last and little to no room for my one average carry on..."
Pros: "We got exit row seats and had tons of room - without an upcharge. We even got a hot breakfast in economy for free. Our first bad was free too - love Lufthansa (who operated flight fir air canada)"
Cons: "Need bigger coffee cups!"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Easy flight , no late"
Pros: "There we're many open seats due to a problem with connecting flights, so my son was able to stretch out across the middle chairs to sleep."
Cons: "the food portions we're small, and we only had a small muffin towards the end of the flight. Ive never left an international flight hungry before. I was shocked that we did not have an actual meal at the end of the 8 hour flight."
Cons: "The seats were VERY cramped, especially for an overnight flight."
Cons: "Missed my conection flight Bitirsh airline miss id someone at boarding process , let fly under my name to budapest. Huge securty mistake. I stock in London for 6 hours. My luggage was not locatible for the airlines. No compensation was offered"
Pros: "good entertainment choices"
Cons: "I was on a transatlantic flight overnight, and in coach. Not enough room to get comfortable."
Cons: "I paid for a flight on a Lufthansa plane, not an Air Canada plane. There was a two hour delay on the flight that I was not informed about. There was also no organization for boarding the plane, and you had two flights going to the same place boarding at the same time."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The boarding was a serious problem as there were no well defined waiting areas for over 400 people to board, blocking the way for other people to walk around the gates. The Toronto airport decided to board two flights to Frankfurt by two different airlines directly next to each other at about the same time, leading to lots of confusion. My frustration was increased by the fact that the airline managed to forget my luggage at transfer, while my travel companions was "just" delayed. during flight while the service was good, the quality of food was very low. The frustration was even further increased , the through the delay of the plane and the luggage problems our rental car reservation was expired as they only hold cars for 1 hour after scheduled reservation. The later not the fault of the airline, but i will certainly consider other airlines and rental car companies in my future Travel consideration unless the return trip experience changes my mind."
Cons: "We left 2 hrs. late. I had only 45 min. to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Had to run through that huge airport with a broken toe!"
Cons: "Delay in Our connection in Toronto caused us to miss the connection in Frankfurt - not because we couldn't run, but because it left before our delayed plane arrived. Then they gave us Stand By tickets for their problem. No exaggeration: The crew rolled a beverage cart in front of the restroom while I was in there. I couldn't leave for about 4 minutes The food made me vomit. That's why I was in the restroom when they blocked me in My headset jack was broken. 500 movies aren't worth anything if I can't hear them"
Pros: "The selection of current movies was varied enough (the content got a little staler on the return trip). The hot food tasted good and was hot. The crew was not stingy with the drinks, which I always like even if they come around fewer times"
Cons: "How hard it is to be comfortable/sleep in the tiny seat."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The food was surprisingly good. Entertainment choices were varied and generous."
Cons: "My only complaint was that directions were unclear in the transfer flight. Travelers with a transfer in Canada did not have to go through the long customs line, but this was not at all clear, with signage or staff. It was a bit scary with a tight connection and a huge crowd at customs."
Cons: "They are so incompetent that they had us arriving in Germany on May 3 and connecting on May 2. We had to have the ticket rewritten TWICE."
Pros: "Crew very attending, helpful."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Lost luggage. Delayed flight. Routed via two stops. Requested for not provided. List is long"

Cons: "Was upgraded, so higher level of satisfaction"
Pros: "Service good"
Pros: "Nice for a long flight - attendants and entertainment was as nice as possible"
Cons: "What else can be said for airline food that has been left untold"
Cons: "Impossible to reserve seat when booking my f not booked on the air ananda website Very cheap food and no food selection on board ( intercontinental flights) I fly 25/30 intercontinental per year... I had never happened to find such a poor company around. very disappointing"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."
Cons: "My passport was still valid but didn't have the 3-6 months left on it (a rule I didn't know about) and was told about this at the air canada counter without any concern or direction. Was in shock."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Flight was smooth. Food and snacks were good."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not accommodating whatsoever. One almost ran my head over with the cart as I was leaning down getting something out of my bad when they were zooming by. She did not say sorry and another passenger said she was laughing after. Another attendant scolded me loudly in front of other passengers because I accidentally threw away a lid from the food tray into a garbage bag I put all my trash in and then wanted me to dig it out. I asked him if he could since he had gloves on and I did not and he scoffed loudly telling me to never do it again. Another passenger said to me while on the fligh that she saw how rude they were being to me and that she was sorry. I was almost in tears because I was so embarrassed."
Cons: "Long haul airlines across Atlantic charging people for drinks and food on flights !! Best call yourself as cheap budget airlines and stop the pretence . Would be useful if this information was shared at booking plus “drip cost feeding” policy is appalling! Frequent traveller and have never seen such an appalling behaviour on long haul airlines"
Pros: "Love the new premium plus. Comfortable."
Cons: "777 overhead bins suck."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process, awful food, rude staff...literally one of the worst flights ever"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "Leave on time"
Cons: "More layover time. We bare made our connection to Milan because of need to clear passport line."
Pros: "Food was better than expected"
Cons: "I always wonder why they load planes front to back, seems it would be more efficient back to front"
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Good seat pitch in economy. Food and beverages included and tasted good surprisingly. Crew were helpful and efficient. Plenty of entertainment options for film, TV and music."
Cons: "Do not like the process of boarding by group number. Another way of squeezing money out of the consumer. Also causes chaos when trying to board. Seats too narrow in economy especially if your broad shouldered."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Everything could be better. From the boarding process to the on board service."
Cons: "My luggage is missing. It would be better if it was not missing"
Pros: "Excellent on board cabin service"
Cons: "Gate boarding announcements we're difficult to hear and understand."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The delays"
Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."
Cons: "Don’t use United out of Charlotte"
Pros: "Simple fantastic"
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Cons: "Food was horrible! Vegetables so overcooked they were almost liquid. Overly salted. Best thing was Chobani yogurt... pre done by Chobani."

Pros: "Actually managed to sleep!"
Pros: "One of the stewardess was very kind"

Pros: "Ontime and excellent service. No complaints at all."
Cons: "Person at ticket counter was rude did not want to wait in us when we was 1st in line. Did not greet and say good morning"
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"

Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."
Pros: "Good functioning audio visual system and seat was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Same computer glitch problem. Agents even needed help with my ticket and boarding passes. I was in the system but something was scrambled in the computer confirmation codes. Lufthansa said United failed to update their code key. Scary."
Cons: "We requested Asian vegetarian meal but messed up. That was very pain."
Cons: "United service was uniformly poor. When we checked in at Dulles Airport, we had to go to two different counters to send our luggage. The United check-in / baggage attendant determined that two of my bags were 'oversized.' I have travelled dozens of times with these same bags, including on this trip, and none of the airport determined the bags to be oversized. The United seats, which we had purchased as "Premium Economy" from the Lufthansa site were "Economy Plus" and not worth the extra $ 275 per seat. The United plane was not well-maintained and had several obvious defects. If United wants "Star AlliNCE" to mean something, they need to do as well as Lufthansa."
Cons: "no crew visible after dinner service"
Pros: "Lufthansa fueron súper amables. Todo bien agradable. Buena comida."
Pros: "priority boarding; screen size of monitor"
Cons: "seat width (too narrow)"
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "Outstanding service. Very comfortable economy plus. Lots of legroom."
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Pros: "The communication was great. The taking off and landing was great"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and I was not given a choice. They ran out of chicken and the only food they had left was pork that seemed like can food. Breakfast was dry croissant with yogurts."
Pros: "I had to get my luggage in Frankfurt and was almost denied access to it in the airport because the airlines don't have agreement together."
Cons: "Luggage transfer"
Cons: "-It said you can watch the movie using your personal device using WIFI; 99% the WIFI will drop or not working at all."
Cons: "Economy configuration has become so cramped that most full sized adults can't possible be comfortable."
Cons: "I have a very strong advice to United: do not take off late! Period! Another one: people who bought their tickets together want to sit together. And ,yes this is YOUR responsibility, and not the customer. Remember this and your company may survive."
Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"
Pros: "Two out of three pieces of luggage lost. You fall out of love after that. No matter what they do."
