Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "Super service clean nice airplane ✈️ departing arriving on time"
Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"

Pros: "Excellent food Friendly staff who are willing to help"
Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"
Pros: "Planes are clean, crew are remarkable professional and attentive. Entertainment center is comprehensive"
Cons: "I requested a wheelchair at the airports but didn't receive that service."
Pros: "The flights themselves were fine"
Cons: "However, having a long layover in Istanbul airport was a problem as there are no seats available to sit it for hours. If Turkish Airlines wishes to continue to be a major travel hub they will need to cater to transit passengers."
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers and economy feels like business with the hot towels and good food!"
Cons: "Quite a full flight and no extra accommodation for families."
Pros: "Friendly & helpful crew, very clean, spacious, great entertainment options for all ages. I would book with Turkish Airlines again!"
Pros: "One of the best airlines over the world"
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: "Amazing food! Very nice crew and excellent flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Good food Great entertainment options USB to charge phone at the seat"
Cons: "Late boarding Late arrival"
Pros: "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you guys for the affordable luxury that your airline brings to the everyday traveler. Your food is delectable and your service unmatched."

Cons: "There was a problem with conecting the headphones. The chicken dish wasnt good."
Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "The security at the Turkish airport. There were very long lines, people pushing each other, screaming. Security put some extra stamps for particular people randomly. There were three women from the same country with the same type of passport who one of them happened to be pregnant. They put extra stamp on her passport. When I asked one of the security why her he said it was random and it was American procedure. The woman started screaming after she was checked twice more and they started to use a detector on her belly. It was all crazy when another family was checked and the security decided that the three kids were okay but the parents weren't. The security told the parents to separate themselves from the kids for double checking. The father started screaming as well. It was all horrible."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and on time. My congratulations to THY for the management of the situation so well right after the confusion brought about by the coup d'etat attempt in Turkey. Thanks a lot!"
Cons: "The Sabiha Gökçen airport in Istanbul is discrageful, and changing flights there is always a horrible experience. But this is not, of course, the fault of THY. The airport is simply too small for the current number of flights."
Pros: "Nice food for 80 minites flight"
Cons: "Crew should be a bit more friendly"
Pros: "Liked that the flight was on time and the plane clean. Online seat selection and check in was helpful but there was no wait at the airport either."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Food was poor, but it was only a short flight."
Pros: "They answered the phone quickly."
Cons: "I wanted to cancel my flight on Turkish as I was concerned about safety after the terrible attack there at IST. I was told that TK were changing tickets and issuing refunds for a period of 7 days after the attack - and I was scheduled to fly on day 8. They refused to refund or change - all they would say are 'fare fules' - 'fare rules'. When I passenger has a concern over personal safety, and in the aftermath of a large scale lapse in security at their main hub, they should be more understanding and not stand by their arbitrary 7 day rule."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we lost an entire day of our vacation (apartment rental, car rental, etc). Before leaving to Istanbul when we were in New York we asked if they would reroute our flights from New York City to Naples, Italy since the terrorist attack occurred in Istanbul causing the airport to be shut down. We were reassured that there would be no problems and we would be rerouted once we landed in Turkey, and lo and behold our flights were canceled. We had to spend the day in Turkey, pay for our own food, and pay for the visa €30 per person. This all could have been avoided had they rerouted our flights to another city."
Pros: "Organized boarding relatively on time take-off. Clean lavatories."
Cons: "The seating arrangements were awrful. The flight was not full passengers flying solo, like myself, could have benefitted from better seating arrangements. for example some passengers had an entire row of seats to themselves while people like me were stuck next to a window seat with a talkative passenger for 11 hours"
Pros: "- Hospitable staff and crew - Despite their relative difficulty in communicating in English, they did their best to communicate and in the end we were able to understand each other - Very generous day tour in Istanbul in between layovers - Accommodating of my seating requests"
Pros: "Food was wonderful, technology helped the flight "fly by", and the plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was different in every city we stopped in - mainly due to other countries' airports and regulations. I believe this was not a problem due to the airline, but boarding groups weren't always adhered to."
Pros: "Sitting was small"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and on-time"
Cons: "Seats too close together. Also -- and VERY important -- they are so close together that they shouldn't be allowed to tilt back and press further into the person n the back's knees. NOTE: Turkish Airlines is, by far, not alone with this problem. Airlines have jammed too many seats in the plane. Increase fares a tad and give more knee space."
Pros: "Comfortable seats (good space for legs), good entertainment (big variety of new movies) and friendly boardpersonal"
Cons: "Online check in was easy but impossible to print my eticket via my iphone (no mobile version for eticket) After Online check in, still had to cue because there was no single drop off available. So no time saving"
Cons: "Turkish airlines lost my baggage, each time I call them they blame ground handling personnel"
Pros: "Food & metal utensils,, courtesy, 5-star hotels on my two 14-hr layovers with meals as appropriate.,"
Cons: "Being asked to raise my seat back so that I woman behind me would find the positioning of her magazine more comfortably read. The space was mine. I am 78 and need all the backward lean (which is not much in economy) for my back that I can get. I finally said so. But my discomfort should not be asked in such a case....when at first I though it might have something to do with some expected chop or the like."
Pros: "At Lisboa airport, I was checked in by Antonio. Most helpful checkin guy I've ever spoken to in my years of traveling. The food is always impressive (for airline food) and they give you a lot to drink. The last time I flew, there was an Autistic passenger throwing a fit and no one seemed to do anything. This time, a person was really upset with his companion on the flight and began screaming. The attendants helped calm him down and fixed the situation quickly. I guess last time they must've just let it happen because of the disability so there's not much they can do in that situation."
Cons: "Not a big ran of the Turkish Airport. Everything is pretty cheap for an airport though if you bring Turkish Lira. They tend to round the price up a bit if you pay in USD or Euro."
