Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Excellent flight!"
Pros: "The crew is outstanding. A girl two seats away from me barfed and two attendants were there immediately with a bag, cleaning wipes, etc. They are very friendly and patient with passengers. The next best part was the comfort. I got a good amount of sleep on my nine-hour flight."
Cons: "The movie selection and meals were not bad, but I've had better on other airlines."

Cons: "I dont have my return but you take it right away"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to lightning strike on arriving flight, we were transferred to non stop EVA Airline so we can get home and not need a connecting flight in Japan. JAL did all these arrangements without us requesting it. They also were very polite and got our luggage in time to be on the flight with us. JAL is truly a top airline in the world."

Cons: "Wish there was a vegetarian option too."
Pros: "The drink which call Kiwi which taste was so nice."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "From check in to final destination, customer service to amenities, Japan Airlines exceeded my expectations in every regard."
Cons: "The flights were everything I expected and more."
Pros: "Plane is modern with good in flight entertainment and a usb charger to keep your mobile devices charged."

Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight attendants were very..attentive!"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Too small, too hot. Not enough air conditioning. China air was better. Only one meal choice. No choice for vegetarians or allergies. Didn't warn about the rain, stairs were slippery"

Pros: "The seats were quite small but other than that it was a nice flight. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight attendants are consistantly helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."
Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."
Pros: "Airplane is well kept. Snacks are available near the beverage area."
Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."
Pros: "A meal on a two hour flight is an amazing perk!"
Pros: "It was anything very good, my trips on air are great. all flight attendant did good job.i got good slept well on flight JL 060.so I will choice Japan Airline next time. Thank you very much"
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "No clue when it's boarding time and no announcement"
Pros: "Free WiFi in flight!"
Cons: "In my email confirmation says Business class tickets but the boarding cards were "J" class which was not Business or economy so we had to fight to get in the lounge. They apologizedon't many times but no compensation, seats were first row but not first class, business, economy, or premium economy. They said it's called "J" class! You still get 3 pcs of luggage and pay business class price! Never JAL again domestic, maybe international or Never ever!"
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "I'm an entertainer, very well respected in Hawaii, Japan and the world. and has always traveled JAL. I travel with my guitar and has never had a problem carrying it on board. The staff will usually come a get it and put it in the closet if it didn't fit in the overhead. But I guess recently rules change, and was told I would have to check it in because the closet space is used only for staff and business people. Was told that the 737 was to small for my guitar won't fit overhead. I have taken 737's all my life with Aloha Airlines and told them that my guitar would fit. That gentleman was a JERK! and was'nt very helpful, and told me I couldn't take it on board and I would have to take it to the package store and have them box it up. That spoiled my whole vacation."
Cons: "My seat was not comfortable and it was uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "We left on time, we arrived early. The crew was very polite and helpful. The food was decent on board and the seats were comfy."
Cons: "I wish they flew all over the USA, American carriers should be ashamed"
Pros: "The cabin crew was lovely and ground staff equally so as I've come to expect from both ANA and JAL. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I think my negative impression of this flight was more due to the extreme turbulence and extra hour spent on the ground at Narita, which is always a challenging airport. The meals were passable, but hardly anything to be proud of, seats were cramped and flight was pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Our flight from Tokyo to Beijing was very pleasant. The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. There was a lot more leg room than most American/European airlines we have taken. The food was quite good and we even got Häagen-Dazs ice cream."
Cons: "I wish they had a larger movie selection, but they had most "New Releases"."
Pros: "It seemed more spacious. Food was pretty good."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Only 30 people were not priority boarding (including me). Not being Japanese makes you a second class citizen on Japan Airlines."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Even with the unusual dislikes on this particular trip I would fly again on JAL. I would give this trip a 9.4 / 10."
Cons: "Checking in 48 hrs in advance with no aisles or windows seats for selection. Being stuck in the middle seat 26F for 9 hours. Discovered in LAX that my luggage tags were improperly tagged in TPE. I had someone else's luggage tags on my bags going From TPE to KIX to LAX to Houston instead TPE - KIX- LAX- Austin."

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "Crew always very friendly"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and amazing. The food was healthy AND delicious. Very interesting selection of movies, music, games. A small pillow and blanket was provided to everyone."
Cons: "The first few rows of my section received drinks in the first round, but then the attendant ran out and forgot about the rest of us. I am tall, so the seat was not very comfortable for 13 hours of flight--had neck pain afterwards."
Pros: "crew was great!"
Cons: "Incredibly slow wifi"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was ok"
Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "We liked the spaciousness and overhead bins."

Cons: "Volume of sound on movies should be increased to off set the plane’s. The viewing screens should be increased in size."
Cons: "When offering drinks, the steward didn't give passengers enough time to make their selection. Offerred snack in the dark when most people were asleep. Understand that the attendants are trying to carry their tasks in a specific time frame but there must be a better way to serve your customers, such as announcing that snack can be brought to you upon your request."
Cons: "1. Not enough movie selections; same selection on both legs of the trip. 2. Bathrooms were dirty. 3. I was very disappointed that I was forced to check a carryon due to weight limits when it was under the size requirement. The weight limit doesn't make sense if it was going on the same plane anyway for free. 4. It is utterly ridiculous not to give full mileage for economy tickets anymore. Out of all the programs to cut, the loyalty program? Really? 5. Flight attendants were not particularly friendly."
Pros: "I️ loved the mall in Taipei!! It was fun to browse around the different stores while waiting for my flight. I️ also loved how easy It was to fall asleep on this aircraft."
Cons: "I️ didn’t like how close the seats are to eachother. I️ slept fine however I️ often found myself leaning on the person next to me . Also my neighbor kept coughing but that’s out of talks controll. Overall this was an amazing experience and I️ am happy. With yalls service."

Cons: "since I flew EVA both there and back to the states, I quickly ran out of movies to watch but this is such a minimal complaint"
Pros: "I love the price, all staff was kind and helpful and the seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. Most of it made my stomach upset so I didn't finish and landed very hungry. The entertainment was limited as well. For a 13+ hour flight I was disappointed with the amount of TV shows and movies I had access to. I would still recommend EVA to friends and family with a warning to bring approved food and entertainment."
Cons: "crew very bad. Act like they didn,t want to be bothered. Never smiling."
Pros: "Crew was most helpful and gracious."
Pros: "I got to Houston earliet than posted"

Pros: "I liked meals."
Pros: "The value for money is very good with EVA. The planes are modern and clean. The staff is very friendly. I will no doubt be flying with EVA again!"
Cons: "Nothing major to say here; just a few suggestions. I find the meals and entertainment to be a bit lacking compared to other airlines of the same caliber. With that being said, the value for the air fair charged is hard to beat."
Pros: "Food was actually OK and the alcohol selection was good."
Cons: "I was in the last row aisle seat 73H. Prior to take off I requested to move to the opposite side 73 A and B because they were empty. I had a passenger on the window side and this particular FA said said OK, but she said to do it after the flight takes off. Later I took my things and this time another FA rudely said I cannot move because the empty seats were required for FA's to rest on this 14 hr flight. Fair enough. But not once did they sit at those empty seats at all. When I had to continually get up to allow my window passenger who frequently uses the toilet. Why lie?"
Cons: "A little delay in boarding but after other airlines I flew this has been best by long shot"
Pros: "The fact the staff try so hard to comfort passengers"
Cons: "Cant fond any wrong doing"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Same issue i have on all Eva flights there dinner drink severings come in a small cup Thats not even half full."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited"
Pros: "I fly with family from Houston to Manila regularly. It's a long flight but both Eva and Korean Air always have better prices than other air lines, especially American companies. They are just more professional, have better service and are cleaner than American airlines. I will always fly Eva or Korean. I don't know what some of these people are talking about. EVA always offers tea, water, apple and orange juice."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew,food and entertainment was very good. It was not cramped."
Pros: "Everything superb"
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Cons: "Nothing to complain, simply perfect."
Pros: "The flight was SO OLD and uncomfortable which is absolutely ridiculous for a 16 hour flight. My screen did not work the entire time despite asking flight attendants to fix the issue. The flight attendant would not attend to me despite me pressing the button and twice skipped me while giving out meals. I had to call them back and ask for it. The bathrooms were SO dirty and yet no flight attendant took out the trash or cleaned it even though we are in the midst of a pandemic. We were also not given hygiene kits to keep ourselves safe. DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE."
Cons: "Love it! Next time, I will for sure buy tickets from Kayak"
Pros: "I don’t like it"
Cons: "They take my money because my flight it’s was over And they charge me twice"
Cons: "Offer cappuccino along with coffee, tea, and juice."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Costumer service"
Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The delay was very poorly handled. We had to go through security multiple times because delays would happen just before boarding and they’d change gates. Plus, meal vouchers were useless for us as Dubai airport is quite unfriendly to vegetarians. Never flying Emirates again."
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Cons: "Third time on emirates but this time it was the worst. Even worse service, seats, and food. While my kids ordered the regular meal I had ordered the Low Sodium Meal because of my health. The meal that I got was saltier than the regular meal!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Food as requested: Great Entertainment:great Crew: Nice 16 hrs flight didn’t seem boring at all"

Pros: "The staff were very courteous, especially Iliya. The onboarding staff were very friendly. I will definitely fly emirates again"
Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Stawardess took too long to collect trays after we had eaten.at least two hours."
Pros: "After my request for vegan was apparently not put through, the crew bent over backward to find food for me. Unfortunately I only got fruit which is not very satisfying. . In addition, a kid was seated behind me and repeatedly (and I do mean repeatedly) kicked me in the back and slammed the tray table into my back. The crew found me another seat and were extremely nice about it."
Cons: "My request for vegan food was lost - it is hard to feel comfortable for that long of a time period just eating fruit. (This is even after the crew from the previous flight tried to remedy the situation by notifying them.)"
Cons: "I was supposed to get a room from Emirates since I had 15 hours stay in DXB but Emirates employees refused to give me room. F.Emal"
Pros: "Efficiency and personnel excelled in client service"
Cons: "Boarding was not organized Crew forget to return to you with your drinks The seats are NOT comfortable"
Pros: "I love the experience of fly with kayak and look forward to many more"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was expected from a good flight."
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "great ICE programming"
Cons: "very infrequent drink service and erratic requests response for drin ks"
Pros: "Would have been better if the Veg food was not of the saem menu as in the preceding flight"
Cons: "More varieties of veg food should be introduced. Seats have a bit of less leg space No wifi"
Pros: "Delay in first flight which caused me a day. But accommodation provided at Dubai is fantastic. Entertainment system not worked in flight and WiFi Audi not worked."
Pros: "The service was excellent good legroom for flying economy."
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: "The service was great and the comfort and leg space and need to mention the quality of food."
Pros: "Great entertainment choice on board. Free, cheap in-flight Wi-Fi."
Cons: "No free seat selection available anymore until checkin."
Cons: "India to dubai had poor Intertainment system"
Cons: "Not enough food and snacks"
Pros: "Low fat meal was great! (the salmon one)"
Cons: "They broke my checked in luggage!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and the meals were more than one would expect (still airplane food though). In flight entertainment was pretty robust and the inflight care packages (sleep mask, toothbrush/paste) were a nice touch. Although my wife and I were jealous of the business class luxury we were very satisfied with our 15 hour flight."
Cons: "no complaints!"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Food, service and the crews behavior to be honest I'm very satisfied from that flight so I recommend all my friends to try once on Emirates. I really appreciate for the services."
Cons: "There is nothing to mention that I didn't like it everything was on time."
Cons: "Old aircraft from Dubai to Houston. No power outlets. When I switched the light on for service. No body responded even after an hour. I turned it off. Food quality and service have gone down significantly."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and the entertainment system (screen, phone charger, etc) including all the entertainment (movies, music, tv shows) was exceptional"
Cons: "Handling Flight delays Management"
Pros: "This is the 4th times I use Emirates and they maintain their standards. The entertainment is very good, a lot of new movies and tv shows, in many languages. The quality of the plane is still amazing, I love Airbus even in economy class and I am 6'2 tall. So enough space for my legs, the plane seemed to be pretty new. Love it. No problem during the boarding. Staff very efficient at that time The same during the flight. they were there to provide us a high standards services. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "The food portion were pretty small BUT there were some leftover that the crew agree to give if you asked for. So at the end not too bad."
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding, seats were comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Cons: "it was perfect."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I was really thirsty and I kept asking for water. He should have just given me a small bottle. Also need more than 4 Bollywood movies. This was a returning flight after 2 weeks and it had the same 4 movies which I had already seen."
Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."
Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I had a very good experience with Turkish Airllines! crew was very friendly and excellent."
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Cons: "Please don’t be black and travel with Turkish Airlines. They are rude and racist. Over booked flights, chances of missing connections. My son ranged the bell to ask for water. When the hostess came, she spoke to the white lady sitting next to him, the person told her it is not be that ranged it is him. He wants water, she walked away did not speak to him and never gave him the water. The only food they served was pasta. If you don’t eat that no other options. They will pump you off a flight that you purchased because they are over booked and expect you to be ok with it. No customer service at all."
Cons: "Transfer desk in Istanbul is terrible. Poor customer service. It took 6 hours to get transferred from the airport to the hotel."
Pros: "After the first 2 1/2 hour flight this 777 had pretty comfortable seats for this 13 plus hour plane ride."
Cons: "Maybe charge just $10.00 more and serve a little bit better food."
Pros: "The best was the Seat and Leg space."
Cons: "Some food has fallen on the floor and she kept pushing to serve the same food and was reluctant to discard that tray. Very bad. Seems the whole crew has attitude problem in terms of Service. I would surely avoid using Turkish. This was my first time ever to use but poor experience."
Pros: "Movies, I had leg room. Nice friendly staff .."
Cons: "Internet would not work"
Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "The food was ok but I wish I knew a way to have vegetarian options. I would have liked some kind of fruit options as well."
Pros: "I got a return ticket from Houston to Lagos, the first leg of my trip went pretty well, no hassle at all, the staff and crew were great and professional."
Cons: "But the second leg of my trip which was Lagos back to Houston was horrible, the Turkish Airlines employees at the Murtala Mohammed International airport Lagos were the worst ever, unprofessional, rude and lack basic knowledge of boarding. Decided to do their own thing rather than what the airline allows. It's almost like they lacked training or just don't want to learn. No accountability whatsoever as one of the employee said "it's not like it's gonna affect my job anyways". Poor poor terrible customer service, no courtesy, no etiquette. I can go on and on but ain't nobody got time for their negativity."
Cons: "Tried to cancel due to flooding in home and they would not refund my ticket. Neither would airfare.com, whom I purchased the ticket through."
Pros: "Service, hospitality, free internet movies food unlimited sandwich and cake, usb charging, clean restroom"
Cons: "Wi fi"
Cons: "Ok service , staff were not too polite and slow with requests."
Pros: "I love everything, the crew was amazing ,very helpful and always with a big smile on the face. Also I love the food, my wife and I are vegan and we requested a vegan menu in advance before the fly and the menu was delicious, fresh and healthy!! I would definitely recommend this airline to everyone!!! Way to go Turkish airline!!!!!"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Cons: "Wheel chair flyers should get first assistant"
Pros: "Meals, friendliness and warmth of staff, restrooms were routinely maintained, movies."
Pros: "The security measures"
Cons: "They made us choose an alternate schedule and offered our money back completely 1 week before our trip. This change by Turkish Airlines cost me $610. I had to rearrange the flight schedule for the person dog and house sitting for me. We had to spend an extra vacation day from work. The hotel Turkish Airlines put us in had terrible food and was so isolated that you could not walk to a restaurant. This airline was the lowest price, but I will definitely be looking for a different way for my next trip."
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Pros: "good movie selections"
Cons: "We were pushed to stand-by at the check-in and were told that seat number would be available at the gate. However, this never happened. At the gate, we (30+ people) were told that there are no more seats available on the plane and we have to go to their customer service for another flight. There are no Turkish Airline staff at the gate to explain why this would happen and provide any assistance. We spend the next 2 hours trying to get boarding pass for the next day's flight and the hotel. Again, no apologies nor explanation were given. Thank you Turkish Airline for wasting 1 day of my life. I will try to avoid this airline in the future."
Cons: "Their audio system is very bad."
Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."
Pros: "Same asabive"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Did not fly"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."
Pros: "The free hotel provided by Turkish airline is very nice too."
Pros: "Crews were friendly, on time take of and arrival. food was good"
Pros: "Staff courtsey"
Cons: "Some of the food"
Pros: "price and food"
Cons: "Customer service need to get way better"
Pros: "Space inside the plane. There were empty seats that increased the comfort."
Cons: "Lack of courtesy inside the airport and in the plane. Countless passport checkups, poor communication during the flight."
Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"
Pros: "Cost / value, part of Star alliance group, nice lounge at Istanbul. Decent food, drink and entertainment on board."
Cons: "Boarding a bit of a zoo. Long lines at passport control."
Pros: "Boarding was tedious with like 6 checks of your passport but being safe is never a bad thing. No cost alcohol is always a plus and the food was good. Staff was super nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I intentionally chose an empty row but people kept shuffling. so many folks were standing blocking aisles. I think staff could do a better job to prevent that."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."
Pros: "Love the "welcome aboard" Turkish delight. Enjoyed the pide sandwich snack."
Cons: "Offer water or any drinks instead of us having go to the kitchen area. Would be better to offer drinks in bottles instead of a glass. Also, bring snack offerings throughout cabin. I was traveling with 3 children. Could you think about offering food to the passengers with children first? This would help in getting them settled into the plane instead of waiting for their food -- which for them seems like an eternity."
Pros: "very professional, great entertainment"
Cons: "13 hours from Istambul is very very long."
Pros: "Great customer satisfaction reach on time"
Cons: "Great customer satisfaction reach on time"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Allowed people to deplane while waiting. Sitting on a plane during a two + hour delay is the stupidest thing ever."
Cons: "The gate was occupied when we landed on schedule."
Pros: "Seats were ok"
Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "The connecting BA flight from Houston to LHR was an old 747 and my broken window blind didn’t go down. The worst part was I paid for a bulkhead seat and once we got on the plane it turned out the configuration was different and the seat was not bulkhead."
Cons: "Accurate configuration. A more modern plane."
Pros: "Crew was ok. The basics. No issues."
Cons: "WiFi and better entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"
Pros: "Everything was good. Bear in mind flight was under 1 hour and I slept the whole time."
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "There seemed to be some passive aggressiveness present on the flight to Houston. Passengers seemed to be defying in small ways orders from the staff, standing etc. The staff responded quite severely in my opinion, repeating the safety video to everyone’s annoyance because some passengers were talking out loud."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Cons: "The turbulence st the end made me puke."
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "Bad bad"
Cons: "Bad bad"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and my luggage is coming in the later flight. I need some form of consolation for this pathetic service."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "Missed flight"
Cons: "No tv. Small aircraft."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. No food offered."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."
Pros: "I was in group 2"
