Awesome crew! Highly recommended!
stewardesses that can actually understand spoken English
Food should be better. The service was good. The seat is comfortable.
The issues not caused by JAL but Americans airlines(AA). Since the ticket was purchased through AA we where froce by AA to use there baggage rules which are very restricted when you think of AA think Spirit Airlines. AA add $400 of baggage fee to ticket that would been free if we used the baggage rules of JAL. JAL siad they where froced by AA to collect the fee that was charged to AA.
My trip was very good on Japan Airlines. I used the wheelchair service and everyone was very helpful! The food was a step down from what I experienced before when a Japanese choice was offered.
Best leg room on their 777 we have experienced in Economy across the Pacific. A big plus since I am 6'1". The food was abominable on flights originating from Japan. Mainly mystery dishes.
JAL is a good flight to visit Far East, especially Thailand for a discounted fares:-)
Everything is perfect all staff in the plane is very good I will fly with Japan airlines every time if I go back Thailand thank you so much for perfect service
Most of my selected seats were changed to seats I did not want.
The flight departed on time and the flight crew service was absolutely amazing!
The flight departed on time and the flight crew service was absolutely amazing!
The airline wanted to charge me an additional $108.00 to check my second bag despite their policy stating that the first two checked bags are free. In order to not miss my flight, I had to leave one bag. Thankfully, I had enough room in my other bag and carry on to accommodate all my things.
The service of this flight was wonderful, I love all of them
The flight crew are great, boarding and staff at gate are meticulous and orderly. Comfort is good in economy, I'm 6ft and had decent room. The food is ok , it's a lot of little things that were fresh and different but not really a meal. My language is limited to English but for the most part I was able to communicate my needs thankfully to their understanding of English. I would fly this airline again I would think about the one step upgrade from economy if it was a busy flight especially over 5hrs .
The number of flights available from the west coast US to southeast Asia has been severely reduced to the covid pandemic so flyers do not have all the options as in the past. So I reluctantly flew on JAL despite all the negative reviews [Spoiler: the reviews were correct]. Although I was pleased with the efficiency of the flight, the sincerity of the crew, and the high quality meals, the substandard business class accommodations made the whole flight uncomfortable. The chair was small, cramped, lumpy, and offered little privacy. It by no means compares to business class on China Eastern or Singapore Airlines -- the groups I usually fly. JAL will need to significantly upgrade business class if I consider this flight in the future.
Overall, very good trip. I would definitely fly with Japan Airlines again. Food choices are Japanese-centric, flying back to Los Angeles after being in Asia two weeks, something different would have been nice. But overall, very good.

Pros: "Overall is good :)"
Pros: "Sitting in my seat I felt that I had wiggle room for my feet and my arms/elbows. Usually on American flights, I feel like a sardine packed in a can. Even though I was in economy I had plenty of space and was very comfortable during 9 hour flight from BKK to Tokyo."
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.

Pros: "Professional and kind service. Leg room. In-service TV/movies. Toothbrushes. Food. Everything was outstanding."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Crew were too focused on being efficient and forgot how to relax and be nice. They march up and down, bark out commands at people but say "please" and "thank you". Words don't make up for the tone and the way they do things.
Smooth flight. Communications were good. Food quality was so-so.
Not a fan of given an iPad to watch movies. Trouble some to hold/place and eat.
The flight attendants are very professional and attentive. They care about the safety of every passengers all the time. I like the very organized way of getting passengers to board the plane by showing the label - economy class and business class clearly. The taste of the food can be improved. Perhaps more varieties and something more authentic.
The crew was fantastic. They did their utmost to accommodate our needs throughout the flight. Definitely Singapore Airlines is the best.
They lost my baggage, if that can be improved it would be 5 star
Boarding process could be improved by breaking the process into smaller batches in a organized manner. Discourage passengers from crowding the boarding area. Meals could be improved . Received identical Meal items on both flights - Diabetic
The crew was very courteous and helpful, great experience!
Delays were given at intervals. So we were informed
Pros: "The crew was excellent, respectful and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding by bus is poor"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Pros: "everything, the crew was efficient"
Cons: "more African entertainment to be added on the Johannesburg route"
Pros: "This was the most fabulous crew I have ever flown with on ANY flight in so many years of my travels! It was un-imaginable as to what they did, they left no stone unturned to make sure we were comfortable, fed us with awesome food every now and then. Were looked after like babies! Thank you SQ!"
Cons: "The A380 was probably SQ's oldest one, which that was a newer plane."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding was just ok, but departure delayed by half hour. Seats were really poor. Zero comfort.. felt like sitting on a cramped park bench. Entertainment system is ancient. Can't see and can't listen properly. Didn't expect this type of horrible aircraft from Singapore Airlines!"
Pros: "Seating was spacious, crew was attentive. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food choice was not pleasing to me."
Pros: "With Singapore Airlines the service is always good I actually paid extra to fly them after three weeks in India"
Cons: "Older plane with a fair amount of broken down details Plugs don’t all work, magazine pocket had rips, etc.... could be that they allocate resources to different markets"
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"
Pros: "Spacious and clean"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t attentive. Brought wrong order, forgot order, walked by hurriedly and hit passengers. Empty sauce on the Tray- when asked said it was for presentation!"
Pros: "It's not the cheapest way to fly but it's a great way to cross the Atlantic. Seats are big enough for 2, really. Lay flat beds make the night crossing east tolerable. You really can get several hours sleep. The cabin crew is outstanding, patient, and extremely responsive to requests. Two meals served were excellent. Entertainment choices were complete. After a number of flights in Economy on other airlines I'm spoiled by Singapore Airlines and also by Business Class. And their fares seemed much less than others for the JFK to FRA route. Had no idea this level of luxury existed on an airplane."
Cons: "My seat assignment was moved without explanation on our return flight, FRA to JFK. That was disappointing. The gate folks were apologetic but no real explanation given."
Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("
Cons: "Inflight entertainment wasn't as extensive as in previous years."
Cons: "Seats in economic class are not too contraint in space, food was good and entertainment system quite nice with large si play screen and large movie selection"
Cons: "The seats and there is not much leg room"

Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "Friendly, smiling staff, ever happy to help, nice food"
Cons: "Seats on the A380 upper deck economy are too uncomfortable, couldn't relax at all during the 5h red-eye to Singapore"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."
Pros: "New plane. Good entertainment. Seat reclined a lot but would not stay reclined."
Cons: "The food was horrendous. Worst airline food I've ever had. Check in and boarding area not great. Very overrated airline."
Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Bit on the cold side."
Cons: "Kids playing and out of control and the flight attendants wouldn't do anything."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Although we took of a little late but we landed as per schedule. Service was personalised! Great trip."
Pros: "Best serves ever will fly every time"
Pros: "Loved the crew. Really helpful."
Cons: "1) while boarding you should keep families with kids (at least till 6yrs of age or with disabilities) prior to other people... 2) food was ok ok"
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "SQ always has top quality service and that came through today."
Pros: "Nothing specific"

Pros: "They treat you very nicely on Singapore Airlines - from warm washcloths to wine with your meal. Seats are comfortable and the long flight not so wearing."
Cons: "My husband reacted to the spicy beef/rice dish served for breakfast."
Pros: "Extremely polite flight crew"
Cons: "-The food was pretty bad -Not much leg room"
The food was bad. Cold rice and dal and poor quality. I paid extra for sitting, but did not receive the service. It was 15.5 hours flight. When I ask for water, the air hostess answer was to wait. I had to get out to ask for water. They should be providing water or juice all the time. Hydration is important for everyone. The flight from Miami to Doha was good. Food should always include fruits and vegetables.
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."
Pros: "Excellent crew, quick serving a lunch on a 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Just don't like all the trips to and from flights on the bus at Doha."
Pros: "The service. The friendly crew. The clean airplane and bathrooms, the food and drinks. A1"
Cons: "I truly enjoy this airline! No complaints"
Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."
Cons: "Qatar airline is one of the best ways to fly!"
Pros: "professional and courteous staff. Food is even better than a Lufthasa flights"
Cons: "Great selection of movies and the food was really good as well."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"

Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "Everything was first class with excellent service"
Cons: "Long flight with long layover in Doha"

Cons: "Flight was diverted to Kuwait, due to poor condition for landing in Doha and we loose connection to Bucharest."

Pros: "Great airline with spanking new plans and top of the line service"
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."
Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."
Cons: "I was hoping to replace worldmate with you application. you got it wrong. I travelled from Doha to Guanzhou, Bangkok and back to Doha. I don't even know where Sohag is!!!!! Qatar airways did a perfect job as usual."
Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Cons: "I had to ask for wine to 3 different hostess's"
Pros: "Very comfortable, great staff, entertainment options were huge! New aircrafts with comfort in mind."
Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."
Pros: "Seats were to narrow for a tall person"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "No bad things"
Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Pros: "Great flights. lots of room in economy."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Pros: "I loved the entire experience. This flight was my second trip with Cathay Pacific and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Seats were clean and comfortable. They had decent leg room and great range of motion. The entertainment center was simple but sleek. I loved the extensive movie library. Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed but the crew did keep us updated and was systematic in boarding"
Cons: "Economy seating is extremely narrow!"
Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."
Pros: "Well fed and provided beverages on trip. Food not gourmet----but what do you expect? Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Sure could use a little more leg room. I am 6'2"--so know I am taller than the average bear, but I think even a 5"8" man or woman finds the legroom a little tight---especially on a 15hr flight. On a 3 to 5 hour flight--OK. The legroom was durable--but you asked waht could be better and that point sticks out in my mind."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly as expected from Cathay. The aircraft was substituted from the scheduled A350-800 to an A330 but it still had lie flat seats, just not as nice. The crew was very apologetic for the last minute schedule change."
Cons: "Nothing can be done about the aircraft swap, I’m happy they swapped with an aircraft with lie flat seats as I was exhausted and needed the rest before landing in HKG."
Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"
Cons: "Same as before. Dirty and smelly. Food was ok."
Pros: "was upgraded to a very comfortable flat bed seat been a very long while a cx flight was on time"
Cons: "food quality and entertainment system choices are poor - flight attendants constantly on the pa for meaningless messages that given in languages"
Pros: "Standard of the flight was good"
Cons: "Cabin personal was unengaged rude and everything than helpful"
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "Food extreamly salty and makes you gassy. Bathrooms were always dirty and out of items. Economy cabin was freezing cold and the blankets provided are paper thin."
Cons: "Ok perfect will do it again"
Cons: "They did not provide water very frequently in flight. Food was satisfactory."
Pros: "nothing to add"
Cons: "nothing to add"
Pros: "Good crew, very patient with the crowd. Food was very decent on this flight unlike the previous"
Cons: "Delayed without notice."
Pros: "Inflight crew"
Cons: "There was no wheelchair assistance for one of us ,while the other had.we we're told there was no staff to help with wheelchair! The inflight entertainment options are very poor when compared to Singapore and Emirates."
Pros: "Flight was not delayed"
Cons: "Economy seating needs more leg room and room to recline seats especially for 15 hr flight. Carry on baggage is only 15 lbs."
Cons: "Crew not helpful or particularly friendly not sure if it was because we were not Chinese!"
Pros: "The crew was totally professional, the food was good, but the passengers were horrible, which is not Cathay Pacific’s fault."
Cons: "The American films were good but they could be better."
Pros: "The food was great The staff were lovely"
Cons: "Not being informed that I could check in online Having a middle seat More movie choices!"
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever-"
Pros: "I love the food, service and comfort I want make sure to fly with Cathay Pacific in my future flights. It’s all excellent! And I will probably recommend it to my family and friends."
Pros: "16 hr flight on time despite 18 inches of snow in Boston."
Cons: "It was a long flight, and customer service not good."
Cons: "On time - all good."

Pros: "Seats weren't much comfortable."
Cons: "Food wasn't bad but above average."
Pros: "In flight service was excellent. Food was great. Good variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. Could not hear which rows were being called up and the line was really long."
Pros: "Airline staff were all helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Would have liked to have been offered a beverage more often"
Pros: "The tv had decent selection. Crew were nice. Priced good"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic, after standing in line then they call for other rows and my place in line didn't matter it was a free for all rushing to get in line. No water.....they took my water and have high blood pressure so need water and they don't give enough. Food is mediocre"
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Cons: "Being an experienced traveller, I am for the first tine encounter a female flight attendant who was not only impolite to passengers, and kicked toilet doors!"
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."

Cons: "Long wait to board then to take off...why can't we bring water on board for this Fifteen hour flight????"
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Cons: "My Son's water bottle was emptied despite my protests that nobody at any airport has ever done such a thing. The water had even been okayed by the Hongkong airport 1st security point after we landed in HKG from Delhi. But the there was additional checking of handluggage again just before boarding and they threw away my Son's water. This is unacceptable. Also the food was not up to quality. I got practically the same food in both meals."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good tasting meals, and excellent service!"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty...Given the quick flight change over it was not an issue. That's my only complaint!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "I fly CP to Bangkok because they have best schedule and shortest trip from Hong Kong to Bangkok - have flown 15+ times"
Cons: "The food is AWFUL - the menu is geared to chinese (I guess) and the flavors are undesirable but I don't fly for the food; the english entertainment selection is limited but adequate"
Cons: "We were unable to check in online two days in advance as we were supposed to. Thus we almost did not get to sit together in a 16-hour flight."
Pros: "Boarding was fast seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The food was very minimal"
The flight and the staff were really nice but not what I expected.
Cons: "Nothing could have been better. Turkish airline is the best and the VIP loung is heaven on earth !"
Pros: "The food was finished by the time crew came to serve me and actually said sorry we have no food left for you. Due to flight delay missed connection and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul was extremely rude and downright unhelpful"
Cons: "Turkish airlines really needs to train crew in how to behave under difficult circumstances"
Pros: "The crew was very hospitable. Good food."
Cons: "The champagne should be served more chilled and the bottle should be stopperd to preserve its bubbles through the end of the flight. Avianca lounge at MIA is subpar."
Cons: "My luggage was lost during transit even thout it was a 1h 50 minute layover."
Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"
Pros: "Great helpful staff, nice cabin layout with lots of space to sleep, excellent food, free internet, Live TV - what else could you ask for."
Cons: "There was nothing really to dislike here."
Pros: "Best food. Best service. 45"
Pros: "Food and service in business class were exceptional."
Cons: "Lie-flat seats hard as plank boards!"
Pros: "Entertainment screens good"
Cons: "On the flight from Istanbul to Malaga the entertainment screens were very poor."
Pros: "We made it in one piece"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hour delayed while passengers were on the plane. There was no communication whatsoever. Once we left, tv and entertainment along with WiFi were never working during the flight. Very small and uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was horrible not friendly poor service"
Pros: "Excellent customer service from boarding to landing"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Cons: "Sears in Boeing 777-300 are amaño and marroquí, Edith feedback space and unconfortable, worse if being sittedbin the Baco of the aircraft rows 40 yo 54"
Pros: "The crew and the food were great."
Cons: "There was a dispute about a seat assignment and the flight attendant stated that she did NOT have the authority to decide the outcome. One passenger was in another passengers seat and refused to leave because it was next to a relatives seat."
Cons: "Customer service was very poor while we were struggling to get back to the US while the hurricane was coming to FL. We tried twice to fly home earlier because we knew the flights were going to get cancelled but the airlines wanted to charge us $1500 for that. So when the time came and the flights got cancelled they were trying to adjust the flights and we got stranded away from our kids. Overall it was not a great experience as far as their customer service and we were not happy with how they chose to handle things."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Cons: "You could be choose food... one of the dish was only pasta... what about the people who's allergic? I am... The business class crew was very stuck up! Totally looked down at people who wasn't in the business class... The Aircraft has no AC that you could adjust air blowing on you! It was incredibly hot the whole time !"
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew, food and entertainment"
Cons: "Connection time between arrival time from Tel Aviv to Miami was very short. We had to sprint from the transit security area, through the crowded main terminal, to gate 705 to our sole connecting flight to Miami. A bus or other form of transportation should be provided to gates that are very far away. We were the last ones to board. Private security staff at the gate prior to boarding the bus to take us to the plane confiscated my Bluetooth headphones under the assumption that they fell under TSA's prohibited electronic devices (which they do not). When on board the plane, I noticed another passenger with similar headphones which were not confiscated- selective enforcement."
Pros: "Service and people"
Cons: "Long lines and security pat downs...."
Pros: "Food and movies where good"
Cons: "I paid for internet and it didn't work. Was told that I disntvoay, so I paid a second time still didn't work. Was billed twice and never was able to connect."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I was not bothered by any background sounds while listening to a movie on the Turkish Airlines headphones. The crew was very nice, and the food was fantastic."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit unorganized and took a long time as a result."
Cons: "Cabin temperature too high, the flight attendants borderline rude and always on a hurry, I mean what's the hurry durin a 12:30 hours long haul flight. Turkish airlines has decreased its quality of service."
Cons: "it was so HOT!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."
Pros: "Cleanliness, wonderful crew,"
Cons: "The TV on my seat was not working"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, great service and very kind attendants, great food, accommodating comfort for the long trip I had. Definitely the best airline experience I have ever had and all for an incredible price, under $600 to fly from Miami to Rome!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."
Pros: "Very nice and corteous crew"
Cons: "The papers in the bathroom toilet should have been cleaned out to allow more space in the bin.. All the toilets were packed"
Pros: "The space was incredible had enough leg room, the food was delicious, the amenities like the movies and music and games made the flight feel a lot quicker loved this air line!!!!"
Cons: "The bathroom needed a little more maitence that's all!!"
Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process in BKK was haphazard due to non-calling to board by Group number."
Pros: "Very pleased with the entertainment on board, the crews was very helpful and efficent"
Cons: "my meal from BKK to Istanbul was served cold ( eggs and spinach ) they forgot to heat it up."
Pros: "TV accessories - socks, blanket"
Pros: "I like Turkish Airlines. The flight was good. I thougt only food was somewhat not as good as usual. I flew with TA many times and the food offerings always had stood out from other air companies. In general it was great flight."
Pros: "Good seats, good food, and good entertainment options. I liked how many things were include for the price, such as headphones, blanket, and pillow. Also, one seat in our row was empty and that gave us a bit more room."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and my baggage never made it to my final destination from connector"
Pros: "I have flown with all big airlines including Lufthansa, BA, Delta, American and others. This flight was by far the best experience I had. They have lovely serving crew so no one actually hesitates to ask or want something. They have helped me and my two toddlers along with 3 other similar families of an incredible amount to make sure they are all comfortable. No wonder that received the best airline of europe award for several years in a row...There was only a 20 minutes delay during take-off and we still arrived home a bit early... Very smooth flight, one that I still cant believe I had with my 2 toddlers. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "The desk personnels from the Philippines (flight from Phils to Istanbul) were very accommodating when I requested if the plane was not full that I could be seated on an area where the other seat was not occupied. Very professional with smiling faces."
Cons: "So now, this would be the opposite (big time), this lady personnel on the desk (flight from Istanbul to Miami), when I asked her for the same request, she did not even look on the computer and quickly stated that the plane was full. I travel a lot so I just know that this person was lying and sure enough when everyone boarded, they were empty seats. I should have gotten her name because she was just plane lazy and unprofessional, it showed that she did not like her job. I paid an expensive Turkish plane ticket, so I deserve that courtesy and I would fully understand anyway if there were no seats at all but please don't even take your costumers like a fool."
Pros: "My suitcase was delayed, but I'd like to notice and appreciate efforts taken by Turkish airlines rep. at MIA to get it found and delivered in a timely manner. She also followed up asking if everything is fine with it. Thank you, guys!"
Cons: "Rude young lady security officer in Istanbul airport, who forced me to start my laptop working like it's forbidden item to carry on. She talked with intonation like I did something wrong and she is thereto discover it. I believe better workplace for her would be to supervise some prisoners, not welcoming guests at international airports. All other officers (including other security control ones) were looking overwhelmed by work flow, but still polite and friendly."
Pros: "For such a long flight, I appreciate the airline's consistent service and determination to make sure everything was pleasant as possible. By the way, it was an 11 hour flight to Atlanta. I have no regrets on choosing Turkish airlines for my trip and I look forward to my remaining trips with this airline."
Cons: "I do not believe it was the fault of the airline, but I was unable to access Wi-Fi at Ataturk Intl. Airport."
