Pros: "Very efficient flight, quick and handy. No extra details, but have to say the breakfast they served was excellent. Probably the best I have had on such short 1hr flight."

Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."

Great flying experience."

Pros: "Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall"
Pros: "Food service was ok"
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable for an 11 hour flight with a 1 hour delay, the stewardess didn't address my issues, initially the foot rest didn't work and the guy behind me wouldn't allow me to push seat into recline position. They also lost my luggage but was found a day later."

Pros: "For a flight of 1 1/2 hours, we were served a delicious hot lunch."
Pros: "The crew was useless. They spent the duration of the flight gossiping among themselves in the galley. In fact one was close to believing they were the Springboks because they spent the whole time in a rugby scrum in the back galley. One had to constantly ring for them to get their attention."
Cons: "In addition, a male FA was so animated in conversation that his homophobic rant (not directly at anyone in particular) was particularly disturbing. Prior to check in, the heavily overweight female FA's brought on board absolutely humongous bags which they placed in the back luggage bins hogging at"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and hard working."

Cons: "Terrible entertainment. Unresponsive cabin crew member to fact that the whole right hand aisle of the plane had no overhead lights or entertainment that worked. She merely told people she had rebooted three times and there was nothing else to do. No apology. Headphones were faulty on both outgoing and returning flights."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely freezing even with a winter coat and two blankets. The website would not let me and my friend choose our seats prior to getting passes so we had to keep asking people to switch on both legs of the journey. The bathrooms were disgusting. Pillows are reused."
Pros: "Great spaced setting and the toilet clean and spacious"
Pros: "The food and entertainment selection. Wine selection better on inbound flight than outbound from Accra."
Cons: "Disinterested affectwhilst serving; not offering drinks othe than the initial one. It is nice to be offered more. Coats from women not collected automatically as for the men.

Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flights and the friendliness of the flight attendants."
Cons: "I did not like that there were no personal entertainment portals in each seat for the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was chaotic and very unorganized. After boarding business class and people with special needs, why can't they board from the back of the plane a few rows at a time? It would make more sense and there would be less pushing and shoving. A lot of people were rushing to get to the gate all at once!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, were so easy to talk to and they were so hospitable."
Cons: "But I do not have appetite of boarding it again due to the rudeness that I was shown by those who were at the terminal 5. I was coming from Washington State. I boarded a flight from Washington to San Fransisco then from there to New York but none of these charged me the carry on bag. When I reached at New York they said your laws (south african airways) does not allow a person to have carry on bag and laptop bag. At this time I had already extra lagguage which I paid $200 and they told me to pay another $200 dollars for carry on bag. They were so rude to me they told me to leave the bag if I do not have money. I was stranded. I tried to tell them that I boarded two flight which they did not charge me. They said the flights has different laws. But when I was going to New York i used the same flight with carry on lagguge and my laptop bag. So I paid $400. When I entered the flight I was shocked to find that almost everyone had a carryon bag. I felt that they did that to me because I was black and they wanted to find advantage on me. I was so stressful because I had no where to go. I used Delta flight when i was coming to new york but I have never experienced this charges. Now international flight experiencing this horrible situation. . True paying $400 because I had carry on bag?? Am still stressful they took a lot to me. They did not gave me receipt. I asked them to give me receipt all what they were answering me was like "just go." I have never been in a such situation. That is why I said I do not have appetite of boarding South African airways again. Is it true that your laws doesn't allow people to have carryon luggage? If it is true why some customers had the carry on luggage?? my carry was small it was not 23 pounds. Am still feeling pain for what they did to me. I know the name of the woman who was rude. If you treat passengers like that, there will be no good. The complain customer."

But the vouchers can't be used online or over the phone, you HAVE to go to the airport to the ticket office to use them. They must be used on the same destination flight and you CANNOT buy a one way ticket. But the amount was only enough for one way. Absolute dog show of a company run by completely senseless idiots."

There is not enough offering of water, in mostly all other long haul flights I have been, bottled water is offered several times throughout the flight There is not a final collection of garbage at the end of the flight and we end up with carrying it out or leaving it inside the plane.

As a result of the lack of communication and general lack of professionalism, staff refused to rectify the situation and take responsibility, and I was forced to stay overnight. Worst"

Mumbai staff was rude and inconsiderate. Addis Ababa team does not even make eye contact when talking to passengers. I could not wait for this travel to be over. Aircraft was mediocre.. During boarding, they don't seem to care about Priority passengers - despite my status with other Star Alliance carriers. Not sure I will fly by Ethiopian again."

Cons: "My flight was only for refugees and was delayed by 8 hours, however airport staff did not have it on their manifest, and Ethiopian never informed me of status. I just sat in the airport all night until I eventually got frustrated and went home. The airline had no idea I was in the airport and no Ethiopian staff were present to speak with. When I and my family called Ethiopian, they hung up on us, at least 6 times. This was my worst experience ever and I will never fly Ethiopian airlines again."

Pros: "Service & Staff"
