Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Fewer fat peasants with too much hand luggage. Seriously, control the hand luggage before people bring it aboard."
Pros: "Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc."
Pros: "Food was great! Crew was excellent and I loved entertainment choices!"
Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."
Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."
Cons: "Boarding by bus - not my favorite way of getting on a plane. Probably not the airlines's fault."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "Food was excellent. The built in entertainment from movies to games was amazing! It saves you space from having to pack a bunch of electronics."
Cons: "I always enjoy a window seat but the people next to me didn't get up at all! So I was stuck sitting and didn't have a chance to stretch my legs. Not the airlines fault of course. If you put your seat back a little, it just pushes your knees farther forward."
Cons: "Same problem as the first segment (see above)"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight were good and the entertainment was good"
Cons: "The boarding procedure is chaotic and the boarding crew were rude and yelling at passengers. No organization skills and poor communication as we were delayed over 90 minutes at the boarding gate to add salt to injury"

Cons: "No leg space in economy."
Pros: "Will never buy ticket with you"
Cons: "Bad service and flight"

Pros: "On time departure and landing"
Cons: "My mother was not provided with wheelchair at the Istanbul airport"
Cons: "flight sells man were horrible. they were not helpful nor caring, and didnt help me with my problem."
Pros: "Seat space continued to be better than BA. Nice surprise to get an evening meal on the last leg to Rome. I actually was able to sleep a bit on this smaller airplane as well. Crew went out of its way to help people board and load bags overhead. They seemed very attentive, and tried to provide extra drink options even."
Cons: "Boarding process at IST was a challenge. We left from a remote gate, and the agent didn't seem interested in the boarding process. I heard no announcements, maybe because it didn't matter as everyone was crowding the door 15 minutes before boarding began. The agent seemed perturbed, but I've seen it on almost every Italian bound flight. No one wants to wait. It is actually a bit amusing to watch the struggle between boarding policies and a group of people who seem determined to ignore them. The buses were also pretty well packed. More so in Rome than IST. Not much organization in loading at either place. After all the passport control they left us to walk outside to wait for the bus. Maybe you can tell I'm not a fan of remote gates."
Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats, no individual entertainment systems. Long boarding without a lot of staff facilitating extra coat/overhead luggage storage because of winter, then we sat on tarmac for two hours because they missed their slot to take-off."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process -- did not matter what Group you were in. Also instructions at gate were not said clearly in English nor were they repeated."

Cons: "Seats was a lil tight , food was a lil warm not hot"
Pros: "Turkish crew members are usually very friendly."
Cons: "This flight was pure misery. In the Istanbul airport flight gates are not announced until an hour before your fight. This would be fine if Turkish Airlines would also allow us access to our flight at that time. The gate had been announced and we had to wait for them to set up a security checkpoint before we could even sit at our gate. This security checkpoint was set up at a point where nearly everyone on the flight was waiting. This caused it to be a huge delay of people concerned about missing their flight. Little did they know that they had nothing to be concerned about because our flight would eventually be delayed two hours. We were eventually loaded onto our plane which apparently was having some technical issues despite just landing in Istanbul. There were people who had rode in on the plane that was eventually deemed unsafe to fly because of an error with the steering mechanism (which we were not even told what was going on until we boarded a second plane). While they determined this we sat on a hot, non air-conditioned plane full of screaming children. I understand why they were screaming and wanted to join in. We eventually had to deboard the plane and wait for them to secure us an alternate plane. They attempted to deliver the plane to the gate, but were unable to steer the first plane away from it, so we had to be transported by bus to the open tarmac. There was no order or organization as to how people were loaded on to either the bus or plane and it was pure and utter choas that delayed our flight even further. The plane we boarded did not have inflight entertainment so we sat on our four hour flight to London left to our own devices. When we arrived in London it was pat the point of public transportation trains running and I had to reroute to a bus. By the time I arrived at my flat it was 4 in the morning. Turkish Airlines has been the most chaotic, unprofessional, disorganized, and inefficient airline I have ever traveled on. My tale will continue with my return flights and how they lost my luggage and it hung out in Istanbul for a few days before being returned to me. I can not stress enough to others to never travel with this airline. The cheaper price is not worth it."
Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."
Cons: "I could not find a way to ask for cancellation or reschedule"
Pros: "Very spacious, lots of room, on time. A nice experience overall."
Cons: "Snacks weren't free. No entertainment, but to be expected on domestic flight."
Pros: "Food was very good. Cocktail service was very good. Free checked bag was nice."
Cons: "Still a tight space. US to Europe by going several hours out of the way to Istanbul still doesn't make any sense."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, once I paid for it a second time!"
Cons: "We missed a connection on our flight out, so the airline decided to cancel our entire flight home! They didn't even notify us they were cancelling it. We found out the day before we were supposed to leave to go home, when we tried to check in online and couldn't. I spent hours of the last day of our vacation trying to figure out what was wrong, then searching for a rebooking a new flight. It cost us more than $1000 USD extra, just to get home. NOT the way we envisioned ending our vacation. I'll never use this airline again!"
Pros: "Nice new plane, decent food, friendly staff, incredible selection of movies. Appreciated the fact that the cabin wasn't freezing for once."
Cons: "Terrible, slow checkin process. Some people treated the checkin counter as their personal therapist, coffee house, I don't know what.., they held up the line for ages and staff was doing nothing to speed them up and move them along."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been onl."
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "The transfer flight was also very nice."
Cons: "The only thing that was a bit annoying was the delay - it was delayed for almost 1 hour."
Cons: "they have no good service at all, no smile face at all. they treat customers like as if we are traveling for free. checking counter are all look like they have bad day, they are in a bad mood."

Pros: "Prices and service"
Cons: "Everything its perfect service"
Pros: "business class seats at the time of the sleep was very uneven and uncomfortable, foods and coffees were cold."
Cons: "Everythings ........"

Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."
Cons: "The flight departed over 3 hours late. Rather than communicating a realistic departure time, the flight was delayed 6 times in 20-40 minute intervals."

Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "The stewardess was super nice! On time and no problems."
Cons: "Bad gate idea to have so many flights going off at once. Very confusing when the intercom would get cut off because another plane would start boarding."
Pros: "Non stop. Easy boarding and de-planing. Good food"
Cons: "I am claustrophobic and the only opportunity I had to select a seat was when I checked in 24 hrs before the flight. The only aisle seat left was in the back row of the plane. Between the person in front of me fully reclining their seat and my inability to fully recline my own seat (airplane design) and with pepole standing in the aisles waiting for the toilets - I was very uncomfortable for most of the flight. United also had problems with their entertainment system so for an 8 hour long flight, there was much room for improvement."
Pros: "Great experience from A-Z!!"
Cons: "Flight over 5 hours late."
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "That goodness it was a short flight. Seats are small."
Cons: "I was supposed to land in denver by 930 and did not end up getting in until 140. We sat on the tarmac at ohare for 20 minutes because they did not plan the gates well then there was a plane blocking our gate customer service lines were absurd. The flight attendant to o hare was very unprofessional"
Cons: "United just did not do it for us on either end of the trip. Miscommunication and 3 hour delays on this flight before we could board. The poor girl at the front desk had to take verbal abuse because the higher ups don't give her any truthful information t work with. Terrible."
Cons: "My TSA pre number wasn't included in my ticket and I was delayed for over an hour"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seating is incredibly cramped now. I'm not a big guy by any means and I couldn't sit without touching the person next to me or even rest my head on the tray table, and the seat backs reclined barely 6 inches. That made it pretty much impossible to sleep on a red-eye. And there were no entertainment screen, though we had them in the EWR->SFO direction. All in all bottom 10% of flights I've been on. Do better."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"

Cons: "I was delayed /cancelled 12 times due to air traffic and arrived 27 hours after I was suppose to. Instead of 1 connecting flight they made me take another connecting flight.

Cons: "What does a girl have to do to get in a boarding group that isn't LAST?"
Pros: "Arriving early in LA"
Cons: "No head phones. toilet sink blocked paper bin not emptied check in at Rochester was a horror show. In end supervisor had to help. He said United wasn't connected to Air NZ star alliance. Also wanted to charge $35 for extra bags when we were flying business class from LA to Auckland. We are both currently Gold elite with Air NZ Cant use money to buy glass of wine or buy food. On way from LA to Rochester , 2 stages nite lights didnt work so couldn't read as window passenger pulled the blind down, it was night time."

Cons: "Seat next to bathroom"

I think, United knows that there are not many options for New Jersey residents to fly anywhere, without being on UA flights so they take customers for granted.......Well, it won't be for too long, if they don't get their act together.......People will start driving to Philadelphia and find themselves other choices......"
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Cons: "Second time in a month my united flight to ewr was cancelled. Will never fly with them again"

Cons: "The seat felt hard, not cushioned enough, especially the back area"
Cons: "The flight to New York was delayed over 6 hours and we did not get anymore information than "air traffic control." A very upsetting experience overall."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The plane the service and overall United as an airline"
Pros: "Predictable flight; service was fine, food/bev was standard for a european carrier and better than an American carrier. Seat pitch seemed slightly below average for transcontinental. Boarding was fine. IFE works great. Quick flight. Really liked the little tiny separated economy section in front of the bathrooms. Felt like the economy cabin you find in the upstairs of a 747 or A380."
