Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My 12 hrs layover in Japan."

Cons: "Bad seat near bathroom. Smelled like pee entire trip"

Cons: "What did you dislike? I purchased our tickets back in November selecting which seats we wanted. When we arrived February 16th they stated we were "standby" after a debated discussion they found us some seats at the very back of the plane (not our selected seats). On our flight back they had us, my husband and I seating in separate sections on the plane (again not our selected seats) 6 rows away from each other. I will NOT recommend using Kayak in the future. Leslie Dickey"

Pros: "VERY FRIENDLY"

Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."

Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super helpful and lovely, couldn't have asked for better. Very pleasant experience. Plane was clean and tidy and they arranged us all so the majority of us had a spare seat in the middle which I'm sure everyone appreciated."

Cons: "No problems whatsoever."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."

Pros: "Good food and excellent service On time"
Cons: "There are not much choices for movies News uses Japanese only"

Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."

Cons: "My experience overall is fantastic"

Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."

Cons: "The lack of legroom in economy class is a serious problem on long flights. I am only 6' tall/145 pounds, Window and middle seats are are not an option for me. This fact Is a strong disincentive to travel (no, I am not willing to pay the upcharge for the minimal legroom increase, i.e. to make that charge worth paying considerably more room would have to be provided."

Pros: "Excellent service and flight experience!! Thank you."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff. The overall service was very nice!!"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. Normally I wouldn't care but it was a 12 1/2 hour trip. There wasn't a lot of good, recent movie releases. On other airlines there was more to choose from that were more recent releases. The food wasn't very good. It had all fish choices or beef tongue. I understand having an Asian meal, but maybe should be a more popular meal with different choices than a more eclectic menu. I noticed even the child's meal was not very kid friendly."

Pros: "Good staff and service"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "the returning flight from Doha to Chicago was absolutely old and small."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"

Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight to Doha was great! Enthused crew and Ey also kept ensuring bathrooms were clean. On way from Doha to Chicago it was disgusting"

Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"

Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."

Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"

Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."
Cons: "Long flight, infrequent water distribution, half the staff just chatting in the back. Filthy bathrooms not cleaned in flight."

Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy.

Pros: "Very good attentive service"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Connection"

Pros: "Plane is good, seats are comfortable, crew were ok"
Cons: "Food was aweful, you should have like fruiets or somthing for ppl who doesn't like the food, it smelled indian food to me both ways, asked for fruite or snack, they never got back to me after they said we don't have any, but will check, again never came back to me, went after an hr. to the kitchned to find out there was a tray of chips and chocolate, buttom line i was starving both ways from the food, was realy nasty (sorry). If your customers are lots of indians, maybe a reminder for hygiene and picking nose, the man next to me drove me crazy from picking his nose and i told him not to, bath room door they leave it open, limit the indians."

Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"

Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"

Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"

Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."

Pros: "My first flight with Emirates. Excellent all round"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Food was pretty bad."

Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff"

Cons: "cabin crew's service - men far behind women esp.when serving food. Not up to the mark."

Pros: "Excellent food, entertainment options, staff was great with the exception of one. Plane entertainment technology varies from route to route."
Cons: "Dubai airport is highly disappointing. The bathroom situation is atrocious! I am not exaggerating when I say I waited in line of 25 and 35 women two different times! The men’s situation isn’t ideal but is no where near the problem that is the women’s restrooms. The boarding process is mildly confusing - there is no public drinking fountains but if you buy water you are not allowed to take it to your gate. This info isn’t posted anywhere and makes no sense bc you purchased the water after you were checked through security. Also this rule truly only applies to women. A stewardess showed preferential treatment to someone who looked more native than us and then didn’t apologize. I understood the customer was upset so the flight attendant was trying to pacify the lady/couple but at least apologize for being rude. Dubai airport very much favors men and I would never travel without my husband. I would fly Emirates again but it won’t be my top choice and I won’t be going back to the Dubai airport anytime soon."

Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"

Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "No respect from other passengers, lots of kicking seats, pulling on seats, babies crying. I will not take an Emirates flight from Dubai to Chicago again. I will choose another airline."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not many old Bollywood movies to select from..."

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"

Pros: "The entertainment, seats, and food were all good."
Cons: "My only complaint would be that I didn't feel the crew members were around unless food was being served. I got up and asked for water twice, and at one point I woke up to find I had just missed the serving of a snack but when I rang my bell for a crew member to come over no one ever stopped by."

Pros: "Seat comfort and some cabin crew we're really kind"

Pros: "Good Price with on first priority"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, comfortable seats. Drinks menu could have a little better variety (no Jack Daniels was a little surprising)"

Pros: "Once again, the food and entertainment selections were what I liked the most about the flight."
Cons: "The crew were a bit impatient with the passengers. There was a lady travelling with an infant, and she was not sure how to fasten the seat belt on the baby. It seemed to me that the stewardess was impatient in dealing with the passenger."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Economy Class was a bit tight for such a long flight. Still a great experience. Thank you."

Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"

Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment available."
Cons: "Seat space was very tight, and my seat was broken (would not recline). Also, a toddler screamed for over 6 hours straight with no intervention from the parents or crew."

Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Cons: "Leg space is very little.. Rest rooms were messy after a while."

Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Food portions and selections were great. We got slippers and eye masks for a ten hour red eye flight."

Pros: "Pilot was operating nicely, temperature was acceptable,"
Cons: "Cabin crews should pay more attention to elder people,"

Pros: "Price"
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."

Cons: "Security lines for US departure way too long. Turkish Airline needs more people to speed up process."

Pros: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Terrible in-flight service; flight attendants not corteous; limited seat space; bags delayed on final destination. Horrible!!!"

Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"
Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"

Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."

Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"

Pros: "The food was delicious. I like how whenever there was turbulence, it was announced and we were instructed to put on our seat belts."
Cons: "On my ticket, it said Philippine Airlines and there was no terminal mentioned. It's a good thing I didn't go to the Philippine Airlines terminal, which is in NAIA 2. I went to NAIA 1 because I checked the airport website beforehand. Once I was in the airport, people weren't sure if the flight mentioned in my ticket was the Turkish Airline flight because it said Philippine Airlines on my ticket. I also couldn't do an online check-in."

Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everyone did a great job handling the new ban of all large electronics. This new rule imposed by the US is completely ridiculous and rather illogical; however, Turkish Airlines did a great job of making it as minimally burdensome as possible."
Cons: "Splitting passengers up into male and female lines in order to be processed before boarding the flight seemed to create a lot of anxiety for passengers traveling with their significant others. I would advise figuring out a way to efficiently process groups without having to split them up by gender."

Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."

Pros: "Employees were very helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "One of my luggage bags was left behind and it needed to be shipped to my home 4 days later."

Pros: "Movies"

Pros: "Excellent!"

Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"

Pros: "am very satisfaction with my flight, Food was excellent .also the service to.I am so happy I chose kayak"

Cons: "Seating in the middle seat and 2 smaller people sat on the aisle and window seat"

Cons: "I could not figure out how to get a vegetarian meal."

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "as above"

Cons: "I stayed in Istanbul Airport for 16 hours with no hotel or even a meal."

Pros: "I didnt receive my baggage."

Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"

Cons: "I was supposed to be given two boarding passes through my check-in but I was given only one. This caused a lot of confusion on the Istanbul Airport. The staff there we unbelievably rude. They caused two passengers (on separate occasions) to miss their flight right in front of my eyes due to no apparent reason. They plainly refused to cooperate with passengers."

Pros: "Good food and plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped."

Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"

Pros: "Lending was excellent"

Pros: "Everything was the best! The food, the movies etc on board to choose from, the staff, everything was great. Turkish airlines is the best airline I've ever been on—US companies need to take note! Even on a 2:10 flight we got a full meal and many drinks."
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was perfect!"

Cons: "2 hour departure delay."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."

Cons: "I didn't received my luggage same day Ithat was not find it and I had to wait 4 days to get it"

Cons: "Crew seemed harried, and even ignored me at times."

Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."

Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"

Pros: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."

Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."

Pros: "Clean, efficient."
Cons: "Inexplicably, food choices ran out and the crew were basically like tough luck...no explanation, aporigins or anything. My fiance who didn't eat meat was left eating bread and crackers."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for over an hour and we had to stand in line in closed off secure room (without restroom) due to security issues. They should have had everyone sit down to wait rather than stand in the ABCD group lines."

Pros: "Everything was really great!"

Pros: "Security checks in a narrow area serving several flights to the USA took way too long time to board"
