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."

Cons: "We had several friends who made the same trip on other airlines and were not hassled about visas. We had all of the documentation that we were told to have by our friends and by travel agents... Emirates did not accept this and did not let us travel and refused to refund or change our tickets. Disappointment does not even begin to describe the emotion of losing this once in a lifetime opportunity."
Pros: "Times were great! Food was decent for airline food comfortable seats great selection of movies"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Not having an aisle seat made it very difficult for my handicapped husband to get in and out of his seat. We had to wait for our neighbors to step out of their seat and take advantage to do the same. Felt very claustrophobic. Service was not good, we rang the bell several times to get some help and no one came to our assistance and we gave up after that. The crew told us they had run out of some juices that we would have liked."

Pros: "The great customer service once on board was outstanding... great amenities and prompt return of requests..."

I can give you flight details of my last flight takken .. What do you say..?"
Pros: "380's are superb"
Cons: "Flights returning to US have an expectation of poorer service. No amenities like the out-going flights (sleep mask, socks, toothbrush, etc)"
Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"
Pros: "Every opportunity I get when traveling will fly with Emirates. The flight staff have always provided excellent service regardless of of being in economy class. The restrooms are always clean. I also enjoy being advised by the flight crew of any impending turbulence before we encounter. Emirates has always provided me an excellent flying experience despite my fears of long distance traveling."
Cons: "Flying east from Brazil by Emirates to join my friend in Dubai and then not allowed on the aircraft because I missed the gate by 5 mins. The next flight was two days later!!!"
Pros: "Emirates crew have been amazing in every point of our journey!"
Pros: "Good service on the plane. They pretty much gave you whatever you asked for. No charge for beverages, etc., even alcohol. The food provided was very good."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the seat bottom was very hard as if the cushion had deteriorated. My behind was killing me very shortly into the 7+ hour flight and I sat on my neck pillow, which wasn't ideal but helped a little. The seat on the return flight was more comfortable."
Cons: "There was a delay in landing that resulted in missing my next flight to Dallas. I had to book another ,really expensive air ticket immediately for the next available flight myself. No assistance was provided. Incurred huge loss and inconvenience due to the delay. The staff was very inconsiderate."
Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."
Pros: "They got us there safely"
Cons: "We did not get the seating booked online The room in the terminal at the boarding gate was extremely small and inadequate. It created much anxiety and discomfort among the passengers. Some were disgruntled."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, I managed to watch a couple of movies I have been meaning to for a while, the vegan food amazing. Being able to charge my phone from my seat was a bonus."

Cons: "Very old plane with no AC"
Pros: "enjoyed the flight this time around. my last experience in Emirates was not good. happy this time."
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."
Cons: "Again, I was requested to move seats midway through a flight. A mother of 4 was separated from two of her kids in the flight. About 7 hours into the 14 hour flight, I was asked to move so that one of the children could be placed closer to his mother. Again, I was put in the situation of giving up my own comfort and moving to a middle seat, or standing my ground and disappointing/frustrating the mother. I made the choice to move. But it was disappointing that there was even a need to make these changes. There should be clearer ways for families to book together online."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing was amiss"
Pros: "On time and good price"
Cons: "food, seat size"
Cons: "Please improve food. Same cold sandwich was given again and again. There was no tea, coffee, cold drink, fruit or chocolates. The menu was very bad. We are disappointed with food."
Pros: "The crew was polite but did not enforce social distancing when boarding. Disembarkation was chaos with everyone pushing to get off the plane."

Cons: "The place's we are sitting can be better"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too warm"
Pros: "Everything was great one of the best airlines I've flown on"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is my favorite airline going to Europe. We even did the 20 hr layover in Istanbul and had a great time staying for a couple of nights going and coming back. Staff is always friendly and the food is amazing. The food in coach is as good as first class on some US domestic flights"
Cons: "It's an airplane, there's not much to make it better besides giving more seat room. TA gives free drinks, a couple of meals, blankets, and the travel bag, only a snobby priss would gripe about flying with them. I've flown enough budget airlines that give you NOTHING that I love flying TA!"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late from Karachi to Turkey and again 2 hours late from Turkey to Houston.The plane was super crowded, the seat was very uncomfortable. Turkish airlines need to reduce their ticket prices because they provide poor services to their passengers."

Cons: "Flight coordination should be better"
Cons: "On time"

When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"

Cons: "Turkish airways is becoming delaying flights without any justification, that makes that every flight connection That I tried to make the laat two trips were lost , nobody tell you , unfortunately the poor client oriented services do not provide other alternatives, you as a passenger must be advising them how to solve your issues. Shame that they are loosing passengers based in their total lack of support"
Pros: "Turkish is always consistently excellent"
Cons: "I liked everything. They are very accomodating towards passengers with special needs."
Pros: "The staff was nice & the food was pretty good for airline food. Good movie & entertainment selection. The usb charger at each seat was extremely convenient & helpful. The provided slippers, socks, lip balm, tooth brush, tooth paste & sleep mask were a very nice touch."
Cons: "The plane was extremely hot upon boarding & stayed that way for quite some time. People in our group thought they might pass out from the extreme heat. Once it cooled down, it was much more comfortable & bearable. Wish they offered more food items for those allergic to dairy/gluten."
Pros: "I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best."

Pros: "Loved the food and staff"
Cons: "Thermostat in the plain"
Pros: "Best food ever on plane"
Cons: "The crew offered no help or solutions when I was denied af security and had to return to ticketing to check a bag. They refused to check the bag and caused me to miss the flight, and offered to rebook me for over $2000. Shady. Most unhelpful agents. You'd just better hope you don't have an issue, because the customer service is some of the worst I've experienced. Won't fly them again."

Pros: "Boarding experience was chaotic however that wasn't due to Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "great airline, warm and friendly service"

Cons: "During boarding they do not always board the Gold members first and in some cases when they do it is only to go on the bus before the others.

Cons: "There is nothing I've didn't like"
Pros: "Same as above."

Cons: "always same food and poor conditining"
Pros: "I like the fact that for almost 11 hours I was fed, entertained, and was able to rest. The flight crew was very hospitable and I would very much recommend it to others. The price was also very reasonable, unlike United or some other major carriers. It says something about your airline when I decide to fly through Istanbul, coming from Rome, to go back to the US. It's a longer flight but it's a worthwhile one. Thank you and keep up the good work."
Pros: "Ability to choose my seat when I checked in online, ability to get a free hotel stay for my overnight layover"
Cons: "Food was so-so; the specific flight attendant's service could have been better; the multiple security checkpoints; checking passports before the gate was completely unorganized; the flight was slightly delayed (reason unknown) - didn't help that we had to be bussed to another gate to reach our actual airplane"
