Airline reviews

Cons: "Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and courteous"
Cons: "More fruits and non-starchy vegetables would make food more enjoyable"

Pros: "Food was really hot and good customer service"

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. Seats were pretty comfy."
Cons: "Food was ok. We could have been accommodated a little more. We lost a lot of money bc of the delay."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Superb crew; surprisingly delicious food (better than some first class meals I’ve had in the past)."
Cons: "The seat was remarkably uncomfortable. I fly business or first class when traveling overseas (prefer business class) specifically to be able to rest - this was the most uncomfortable I’ve experienced in the last few years."

Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"

Pros: "Amazing crew/ food/seats very comfortable! Very relaxing ride !"
Cons: "It was perfect !"

Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."

Pros: "On board is pretty good except that the seats are pretty narrow compare to our previous experiences. As a reference, I am 5‘3“ and 110 lbs."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."

Pros: "Swissair seating is cramped with 10 across in coach in Boeing 777. The only reason for not giving "poor" rating on this particular ZRH-SFO flight, was the empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Next time, I will give Turkish Airlines a chance, because their aircraft seats only 9 across in Boeing 777 coach. On the SFO-BUD flight, the connection is through Istanbul, but the flight time is the same 15 hours, as on the SFO-ZRH-BUD route. In addition, two checked bags are free in coach."

Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on my flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."

Pros: "The. Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Lpst my luggage"

Cons: "Terrible movie selection"

Pros: "The food and beverage service in Coach was great as usual ... The new 777 ER 300 was really a nice improvement over the aging Airbus planes previously flown Entertainment systems in coach were top notch with great entertainment choices to view ..."
Cons: "3 4 3 seating results in very narrow isles ... during the longer flights on the 777 the isle seated passengers lean into the isles making going to and from the restrooms in ( coach) a bit of an obstacle course"

Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable considering they were middle seats. The food was quite good and the entertainment selection was also good."
Cons: "Boarding was later than initially said and I did not know why"

Pros: "crew very nice and helpful. great service. food was very good and good portions. very nice entertainment system."
Cons: "unable to choose seat without paying extra."

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("

Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was difficult to see when the person in front of me reclined because the screen was not perpendicular to my line of vision. I survived based on the other qualities of the flight."

Pros: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Cons: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."

Pros: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"

Pros: "There was metalic box underneath the seat in front of me (entertainment box), that did not leave any room to stretch my legs"
Cons: "This box blocked any room to stretch my legs. The flight was full and I did not have the chance of changing seats. Flying 13 hours in this situation is unacceptable."

Pros: "It takes two minutes to get to a live operator when you call. Simply amazing."
Cons: "The flight from Nairobi to Zurich starts in Nairobi, flies an hour south to Dar es Salaam, you then sit on the tarmac for an hour, then you fly north for an hour until you get back to the starting point. I would think they would save money if they flew an empty plane down to Dar es Salaam, picked up those passengers and then flew back to Nairobi. No way should an 8.5 hour flight take over 11.5 hours. Plus my screen didn't work for one of the flights, nearly 12 hours without entertainment was BS. No real variety in their meals either. The first leg had a main meal of beef and potatoes as the meat option, same option for the second leg."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. So patient and accommodating, even when passengers were a bit impatient. Cabin was clean, and it was good to have blankets and pillow on a long flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Food was okay but not substantial. Comfort was terrible in my seat - for some reason I had a seat with a metal box underneath so I could not stretch my legs. And the fellow next to me, in the middle, was over 6 feet and was VERY uncomfortable, even though he had legroom. There were good options for entertainment, but it was unreliable and had to be restarted once. Also, the screen was terrible quality and I could not see no matter how I adjust the screen angle or the light."

Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The Swissair website did not have my information available. Stood next to Passport Control for an hour (!) for a glitch they couldn't resolve before boarding. Flight was delayed 90 minutes. Worse quality beef on a flight ever, and that's hard to do. In my 1.5 million miles flown, these were the least comfortable, cramped seats I have ever experienced. I am only 5'7", 150lbs, but for the first time ever could not reach my belongings in the under-the-seat space in front of me. Seriously, it was that cramped."

Pros: "Courtesy of crew."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, very hard. The cabin was cold and there was no possibility to adjust blowers. Old entertainment sets with poor variety of choices to watch."

Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. The seats were too small. It was torture for a 12 hour flight. Need more space and padding in the seats."

Pros: "Great crew service, attention to detail, very responsive and efficient"
Cons: "1 hour departure delay from Zurich and did a poor job explaining the cause ?? Movie options available for passengers were limited and not very interesting to watch?"

Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."

Pros: "Very good service on board"
Cons: "Crammed into middle seats both way. Many/Long lines in ZRH/SFO"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."

Pros: "Ft"
Cons: "The lack of food choices. Even if you must buy them tgere should be choices"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Excellent Amount & Quality of Asian Vegetarian Food"
Cons: "Due to a glitch in the webstei, I was unable to check in online, and therefore did not get a window seat for an 11 hour flight - very frutrating and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "The flight crew were great very friendly & service oriented as far as getting your food & water"
Cons: "My partner & I were given separate seats. We tired to reserve our seats online according to instructions & time but the online registration wasn't working properly. We had to wait til we were at the airport to do that. When checking in we were told we had to wait til onboard? Then once on board told no. So we were not able to sit together & weren't even in the same area of the plane. We also had an old plane & seats very uncomfortable. The movie screen was barely visible so basically u could just listen."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"

Pros: "food was good and crew service courteous and attentive"
Cons: "Plane was very old. No leg room. Seats recline way too much until you can't even see the image on the screen anymore when the person in from decides to recline all the way let alone how uncorfotsblr it is to have the back of the front seat almost touching your face and serously limiting ability to move on the seat. Entertainment has super old interface, software."

Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."

Cons: "seats not too comfortable, if seated right next to the toilet I should pay a lower fare!"

Pros: "We were fed constantly, which is nice because on a longer flight you never feel hungry. The staff was great."
Cons: "More space would be nice but I guess you can't ask for too much on flights these days."

Pros: "Wonderful, friendly staff. Can't say that enough. Food was pretty good, and I really appreciate the small gestures throughout. Love going direct from SFO to Zurich."
Cons: "All airlines are doing this—we're seated closer and closer together, but the seats are the same. They recline just as much, and the screens pivot as little. And when you have screens that darken at an angle, when the person in front of you leans back, not only is their head in your lap, but you can't see your screen at all. I hate that it's on passengers to decide that it's rude to lean back, when it's the function of the chair. Besides, barely anyone considers it rude. So I was uncomfortable and cramped (and yes, I asked the kid in front of me if she would please move her chair up just a little bit as a favor, but she said she leaned back because the guy in front of her leaned back). Nice kid. I'm not a big guy. Finally home with a horrible neck cramp and a sore tailbone."

Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "The flight is rough. The ascend and descend pattern too abrupt that causes nausea. I wish the pilot need to be a passenger once in awhile to feel how others doing their job so he himself learned to adjust his ways."

"Boarding was straightforward in IST, but security was strict (everyone's passport, boarding pass, and Covid tests were checked and re-checked 3 times within about 40 ft by 3 different sets of TK employees), with a final carry-on bag check with bomb nitrates swab for every passenger. And that was before boarding passes were scanned to step onto the plane. I first flew Turkish Airlines in 2005 and was extremely impressed. (The strict security process for flying to the US was much the same then as now, when they flew from the old Istanbul airport.) I have flown TK several times since and seen improvement, but not at the rate of its competitors, especially in the region. However, for my last trip (with a long leg between IST and LAX) they were half the price of other flagship carriers. Food quality, quantity and variety have declined, although that may be due to Covid restrictions. The lavatories remained clean but at least one ran out of TP & all other paper supplies half way to LAX. A couple of passengers (in economy, with me) took to using the business class lavatories and got into a dispute (real shouting match) with the flight attendants about it. (The passengers were in the wrong and escalating with unreasonable demands, but one flight attendant let his temper get the better of him. I didn't count but it seemed that there were fewer flight attendants on duty, with one being a fully robed "hygiene officer".) They did take Covid seriously, and distributed hygiene kits with masks, wipes, etc. to every passenger. If transiting through Istanbul before a long flight leg, consider using the airport hotel (YotelAir) within the terminal for international transfers (behind security). Reserve a room, as it was booked out when I last flew through. Otherwise, there are few places to sit down or rest once through to the International Transfers area."

Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I've been on in years."
Cons: "The food was awful, the lounge was worse than the free ones, and the service was absolutely the worst I've experienced in years."

Cons: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."

Cons: "Better food options but that’s for all airlines!"

Cons: "Little more comfortable seats. However, allowing to check in two bags free of extra cost is great!"

Pros: "I like everything about this airline... from the ticket prices, to their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service."

Pros: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "More cushion"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Yes amazing"

Pros: "second time my flight was delayed for no apparent reason"

Pros: "The crew handled 2 incidents exceedingly diplomatically with an impossible man seated next to me. The incidents had nothing to do with me. At the beginning of the flight he was refusing to close 4 window shades that were bothering someone on the other side of the plane, and at the end of the flight he refused to return his headsets as we were landing. The crew were amazingly polite with him. He was completely out of line."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection in Istanbul due to late arrival from Nairobi."

Pros: "Excellent food and service.Very comfortable flight.Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in staff not so friendly but process was OK"

Pros: "Entertainment package"
Cons: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."

Pros: "Like flying first class"

Pros: "Excellent Staff very courteous and professional 5 star +"
Cons: "The Internet is complicated and not working all the time. Business class seats are dated need to be upgraded, comparing to other airlines."

Pros: "It was the best"
Cons: "The best"

Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"

Pros: "Only two thing. The bathrooms and the intertainment"
Cons: "Seats are very compacted, lack of space and so close to reduced leg room resulting an agonizing experience to a new level of torture, unnacceptable on 14 hrs of imtercontinental flight. One word “horrid”"

Pros: "The food was good and the entertainment was fine."
Cons: "After missing our connecting flight in Istanbul on our Turkish Airlines flight on January 9th from LAX-Addis Ababa (due to a nearly 45 minute delayed flight), my sister and I had to spend 24 hours in Istanbul and still pay for a night in our 4 star hotel in Addis, despite the fact that we weren't there. So, in preparation for our flight back to LAX, I spent hours on the phone with a Turkish Airlines representative to ensure that we would not miss our connecting flight on the way back to LAX on January 29 (Jomo Kenyatta-IST-LAX). The TA representative spoke very little English and became incredibly frustrated with me when I expressed my concern about how closely scheduled our connecting flights in Istanbul were. The representative said she could "help us" by seating us at the back of the plane from Jomo Kenyatta-IST, as she was "mostly sure" that our plane would deboard from the back of the plane once we arrived in Istanbul and, in theory, we wouldn't have to wait behind all the other customers to exit. This was totally incorrect: our plane only deboarded from the front exit door and the seats she selected at the back would surely have caused us to miss our next flight were it not for the fact that the plane wasn't full and we arrived only a few minutes late. Still, by the time we got off the plane in IST, our connecting flight was already 15 minutes into boarding. We showed the TA attendants our boarding passes at the long security line, and at first they both said, "don't worry, it will be fine". I had to convince them to let us skip the line as we would clearly have missed our flight. Once we finally made it through security we ran through the ENTIRE Istanbul airport to get to our gate, as we could hear them calling the final boarding call for our flight to LAX. We literally ran as fast as we could for almost 20 minutes straight, with all of our bags, which ended up being over a mile, I would guess. When we got to our gate, we had to go through yet another security line - WHY??? Apparently there was a celebrity in front of us, and while we were sweating and nervous about missing our flight, the security agents were taking selfies with the celebrity. It was insulting and rude and totally unprofessional. The take away for me is that Turkish Airlines should NOT be allowed to sell flights to people that give them less than an hour to make international connecting, especially in an airport as large and disorganized as Istanbul, and especially when Turkish Airlines flights are often late or delayed. This was one of the most stressful flying experiences of my life."

Pros: "Surprisingly good food. Great in flight movie selection."

Pros: "The crew is always very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food is very delicious and you can always get either one of the options, whereas, in other airlines, you have to settle for the least favorite one if your seat is closer to the tail. They have sandwiches and cakes available during the whole flight."
Cons: "The seats are cramped just like any other airline."

Pros: "All was perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours before take off."

Cons: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"

Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."

Cons: "More service with flight attendants walking around to offer drinks would have been better"

Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"

Pros: "Eat fare , amazing customer services . Turkish airlines s pretty good. And affordable .."
Cons: "Nothing , it was all good"

Cons: "Boarding in Turkey was a bit unorganized. Bathrooms on board could be better and the crew should come pick up the food trays soon after."

Pros: "The comfort of the seats, entertainment, & food were great as always. The only Turkish Airlines flight I had during this trip that was not delayed, however needed to be due to the previous flight. The crew did hold the flight for all of us from the delayed flight from Athens."
Cons: "An elderly woman was booked in a window seat and she insisted she take my aisle seat without any additional available aisle seats. However, this would be better handled when she requested for assistance during her booking process. The crew should've anticipate her needs and booked an aisle seat, or even be the ones to ask me or another passenger if I would be willing to trade. I was placed on the spot and no courtesy was shown to me. My legs were completely swollen and in pain because I wasn't able to stand periodically. I too booked my flight early and requested my seats appropriately for my health needs."

Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."

Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."

Pros: "Free movies that are current, Free food/drinks/alcohol, Pillow, blanket, eye blinds, slippers, socks. The flight was 12+ hours long, and the ability to watch movies, tv shows, play games, listen to music on the large pad in each seat was pretty amazing. Free over the ear headphones... Very amazing flight"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a bit dirty...but there was a lot of people on the flight and they didn't start dirty."

Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."

Pros: "The food on Turkish is excellent, and it seems they come through every hour to offer water, coffee or tea between meals. The entertainment is also the best system, with the most options I have seen on any airline. And the seats are much more comfortable than most planes- the headrests bend so much, you can actually sleep without your head rolling off the headrest!"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The food service was really bad. Not happy with the meal choice."

Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"

Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."

Pros: "Good entertainment, food was satisfactory (as much as can be expected in economy class)."
Cons: "Boarding was significantly​ delayed (because of the laptop ban search). Seats were more narrow than usual economy. Service was very slow since they only used one attendant per cart (instead of one in the front and one in the back)."

Cons: "since Jan 17 TK stopped providing meals during the flight , just sandwich and drinks."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, that's fine! I never found out till I had to contact the airlines and verify of this piece of information after I heard it from news. Kayak never notified me, nor offered any alternatives!! Poor service!"

Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"

Pros: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."

Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"

Pros: "One stewardess was very helpful, even though she could not speak English."
Cons: "13 1/2 hour flight three rows from the rear of the plane. I feel and smell like a sardine. The food was horrid. I tasted it, but thought best of eating it for fear of food poisoning. It also looked disgusting. Couldn't understand any of the announcements."

Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Not having extra legroom is one thing but not having enough space to fit ones leg reminded me of the slave ships where slaves were placed so tight that they did not have any moving space. I am not even a tall guy - just 5'10". It was bad especially when one travels internationally for 14 hours non-stop. There should be some federal regulation regarding this."

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."

Pros: "The food, the service and entertainment!"

Pros: "As before, as far as airline food goes, Turkish has above average meals."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours and there was no representative from Turkish airlines there to answer questions. Again for someone 6'2", this plane had seats a little smaller than usual. On the way out, my knees never hit the seat ahead of me, this time they were constantly up against the back of other seat. Also this flights entertainment controls were terrible, constantly went back to home page while trying to select movie."

Pros: "Two really good meals and there were snacks in the back for the time inbetween. The crew was friendly. This was the best flight I've experienced in a few years."
Cons: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front."

Pros: "the food is good"
Cons: "the bathrooms need to be cleaned"

Pros: "Crew was good, food was very good,seats were fine."
Cons: "Entertainment options could be better. The entertainment system needed reboot."

Pros: "Very limited (basically 2 times) food were provided over 16:40 hrs flying time. Kids were hungry. No tea/coffee were provided. After distributing warm clothes, we got food almost one hour later."
Cons: "They should add one more meal and drinks more frequently."

Pros: "Flight was canceled without notice"

Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "The electricity plug was not working so I couldn’t charge my mobile although it is a new plane and the hostess tried his best but no luck"

Pros: "Boarding counter team"
Cons: "keep flight on time, online check in was not working, Less damage while handling bags"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew is amazingly kind. The seats on the flight have a good amount of recline and the entertainment system is good, though you can't turn off Arabic subtitles."
Cons: "I would not recommend flying through Jeddah. Any time there is terrible. The airport is not equipped to handle the volume. There is only one restroom for 3000 people, no seats. An attendant was using the bidet hose from the pit toilet to spray down the floors and the entire bathroom was wet."

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "Boarding crew was not helpful & food was bad"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours and the arrangement for luggages not ok."

Pros: "Excellent very happy"
Cons: "Security not organized took a long time"

Cons: "The hostesses in the my cabin (our seats were row 55) were extremely cery rude. One of the aged one litteraly acted like she was my mother in the sense of bossing around. They were not attentive to when people called them and they were really very rude to almost everyone that asked them for help. I had a 3 yr old who got tired of sitting so i took him around and took him to prayer area when no one else was there, and they came in telling us that it was not safe and i told them that he just wanted to walk around and we just got here iw will go in 2 mins and they were like no sorry its not safe, something with ocygen and everything and i was like if i pray here then it wudnt be dangerous? And they were like ur baby wont be here. Why in the world will my baby stay at his seat when his mother is away. And then I was really sick that day which is why i was drinking alot of tea that i do not even like, i was only drinking it bez it was hot and they were giving me attitude giving the tea. Also one time they did not have the tea so i asked them to give me hot water and one of them said u have to wait 5 mins when we start serving and at that time i really thought she just did not wanna give it yo me because they were just being mean. I did not know tht genuinly they were refreshing everything, so one of them brought me boiling hot water and then cane 5 mine later with food and taunted me that you did not finish your water. For heavens sake I was not gonna drink boiling hot water, i was waiting for it to get to the level ehetr i cud drink it. Overall extremely very disappointed"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The seats were bigger than average."

Cons: "Security check at entrance leading to delay over 2 hrs"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding started and ended early so I nearly missed the flight. Stick to the scheduled times. I was assigned a middle seat and was not able to change it even several days before the flight."

Pros: "Spacious seats and food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "1. There was no wi-fi at Jeddah or Riyadh, hence i was sitting idle almost 8 hours going back and come back without being able to do anything."

Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The fact Saudia lost our baggage and makes any claim for it next to impossible. keep asking us to fill in irrelevant forms. The food was hideous, the toilers never cleaned and I expected a better standard and quality of every aspect of the airline. Ethiopian airlines run a better service and don't have their budget. Would avoid at all costs"

Cons: "Crew was grouchy. The food was over cooked."

Cons: "Dirty"

Cons: "My flight has been canceled no one told me"

Cons: "Dirty rest room few houres before landing"

Pros: "-Same as above-"
Cons: "The transit time is rather long to Europe."

Pros: "Staff were friendly, aircraft were clean and comfortable, with the entertainment being as entertaining as it should be. Food was decent and baggage policy is nice and generous. Seats are comfortable with great legroom, and good width and pitch."
Cons: "Transiting at Jeddah (South terminal) on economy class is an AWFUL experience, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. It's just a small block with 6 or 8 gates inside it which is much too small for the amount of people who wait for those flights. It's really difficult to find anywhere to sit and there's no paid lounge in the South terminal. Facilities are very poor with no WiFi and filthy bathrooms. What's more, all parking positions at Jeddah are currently remote gates, so everybody is bussed to the planes. Hopefully this will all change, at least to some degree, when the rebuilt airport opens."

Pros: "It was not crowded. Found three seats across and was able to lie down and sleep"

Pros: "The crew treated well on airplane"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable as they were in Boeing 787 Dreamliner."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late and they let us queue for a long time just waiting and no reasons were given. The crew did not treat us well and they speak as if they don't want to do anything and in a rude way. For a domestic flight, the food was just a cheese sandwich. Also the pilot have no experience in flying with the plane as the plane vibrates strongly even while mid-air and at constant speed and altitude. The entertainment screen was always lagging and ads are everywhere."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The way they delt with the issue of flight delay, it was unprofessional"

Cons: "Screaming children; mothers seem oblivious that their children are impacting the flight experience for others."

Cons: "Recived the delay SMS after the flight landed"

Cons: "The special security screening needed for US bound flight boarding started about 45 minutes the international flight, that's the time when other operators normally start boarding. The entertainment system on a 16+ hour flight did not work for me so I was bored to death."
