Cons: "Food lacked flavor."
Cons: "Flight delays are always disappointing."
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Wonderful crew, wonderful food, love the chef program for meals which helped me feel more engaged in the JAL experience, and air mos burger for breakfast which made me feel as though JAL truly wants to show its passengers highlights of modern Japanese culture."
Cons: "Seat and seatback were so stiff and uncomfortable that my tailbone and neck/back hurt; I had fallen asleep and woke from the discomfort. Entertainment had censored versions of films that ruined the viewing experience. Music collection interface could be designed better."
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "I think everything was amazing"
Pros: "Sky Time drink was interesting. Flight was on time."
Cons: "More leg room. Better information on what is included as far as meals / drinks."

Pros: "Overall is good :)"
Pros: "Sturdest were very kind"
Cons: "There was 2 choices for food either pork or chicken But when I asked for chicken they told us no more chicken Then they took the pork from the tray and I had to eat the rest without the main course. Also all the seats were taken by the people who bought the tickets directly from JAL,but there was few seats left all in the middle for people who purchase tickets from travel agents."
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. Leslie Dickey"

Cons: "Old movies"
Pros: "Excellent flight and wonderful service!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I purchased a flight through one of the participating vendors on kayak for a major airline and accidentally chose the wrong departure date. I never received a confirmation email and therefore missed the flight. I understand and take full responsibility for booking the wrong departure date but when I tried to change it after missing the flight I was told that the airline policy was to charge a $300 change fee plus $30 for the third-party vendor. Because this was booked as a round-trip this vendor was attempting to charge me $330 plus the full price purchase of a new ticket as the "change fee". For some reason I was unable to explain to the person on the phone that it made no sense for me to pay full price for a ticket plus give that vendor an extra $330. I was forced to eat the entire round-trip ticket and of course save $330 by just hanging up and booking a new flight. I have course book a new flight directly with the airline. I could not even fly standby on the next flight with the airline because they told me they were unable to assist me in anyway because I booked through a third-party vendor. There were plenty of seats available on the next flight and I would've been able to fly standby had I purchased directly from the airline. Never again"

Pros: "Nice people, good food"
Cons: "Old-=fashioned business configuration"
Pros: "The personnel from JAL was excellent as was the flight, food, boarding and comfort."
Cons: "We were informed our flight was not to land in Haneda but at Narita. We specifically picked that flight pattern because of the ease of traveling from Hawaii to Haneda to Naha. We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"

I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her. When I asked where was mine they said they didn’t see my name when I was the one who bought the tickets. It was extremely frustrating. I will never fly on this airline again."

Pros: "no -all that was amazing was the complete idiocy of ana"
Cons: "virtually everything was a unacceptable starting with the gate staff ..."

Cons: "Service was extremely slow, it took almost two hours just to get offered a drink. There wasn't any offering after boarding and I had to ask just to get water.

Pros: "It was alright."
Cons: "Prepare to wake up with neck pain."
Pros: "The entertainment touch screen didn't work at first, but mentioned it to a crew, it was rebooted right away and worked fine after all. Thank you."
Cons: "very average"
Pros: "The crews on ANA (Flight Attendants) are the hardest working, most polite and service oriented of ANY carrier I can remember. When the cabin lights are ON, the crew is hustling to keep the passengers occupied and chewing. Free Beer, Wine and mixed drinks in Coach! Every Service - Snack, Drinks, Lunch, Dinner, Coffee/Tea, Second and Third rounds of drinks includes a cold towel to wipe your face and hands and most important, trash is collected promptly EVERY single time. WOW. I noticed that Flight Attendants take notes on sleeping passengers for every major meal service, and they take the time to revisit those customers when awake to check they might have wanted to be fed. I also noticed that the crew has special double sided tape to pickup crumbs and spills in the aisles so grime is not tracked into the carpet. Dont be surprized to see a flight attendant cruising the aisle after dinner with a soft cooler full of small vanilla Hagen Daz cups..."
Cons: "We flew from Bangkok to Washington Dulles with a connection in Tokyo. Snow in Japan caused crew shifts to max out and ultimately a dramatic change in flight departure. (Guaranteeing a missed connection) This caused multiple downstream challenges. 1. Original flight was scheduled for 00:30. (Half Past Midnight), rescheduled flight was scheduled for 12:30 (Half Past Noon) For Americans unused to a 24 hour clock, this made emails From ANA very difficult to wrap your mind around. Was it a typo? What happens when you miss your connection? (Turns out weather delays do NOT result in accommodations or meals being provided) Rescheduled flight should have been for 1231 with (AM/PM in Parentheses) 2. For passengers who spent their vacation/trip near the equator, the prospect of spending the night in snowbound Tokyo was simply not addressed in the cancellation email. The better option was to stay in your original point of origin and make the connection in one day, but email has NO telephone number for passengers to call to make these arrangements. (We ended up calling a toll California telephone number to be sure we got an English speaking agent) 3. Many SE Asian departing cities have a crazy baggage weight policy that allows for Two bags of 25 Kilos each , but if you have a single bag that weights 32 Kilos, you must pay excess baggage. Although the policy may NOT be specific to ANA, there are hundreds of folks of all nationalities repacking suitcases on the floor of the airport, to try to meet the regulations. As a traveler I understand this, but as an ANA customer it makes no sense, especially when the ticket agent cannot charge the overage to a credit card at the ticket counter. Instead sending you to a different location then waiting for you to return with a receipt. Its a huge scam and ANA can do better communicating the rules to passengers via email or their web site. Nothing starts a long trip off worse than arguments over arcane rules. 4. Changing a return flight arrangement as a result of weather happens at the last moment, but seat assignments apparently could not keep up. I would rather NOT fly than face a center seat in coach for 14 hours. I cannot explain what happened, but repeated attempts at advance check in showed NO assigned seats available, the ticket and gate agents could not improve on this, but BOTH flights ended up having empty seats and in the end we stressed for nothing. ANA must be able to do better, improving their IT systems to make advance seat assignments possible no matter how challenging the problem of "equipment" and other changes in the face of a canceled flight."
Pros: "Staff were friendly from check in to disembark. Food was quite good. Boarded on time and people were accomodating of one another in the entry and exit process."
Cons: "I was travelling with my twin 11 yr olds one of whom has limited sight. They normally only allow early boarding of young children, but we need extra time as I have 2 children to organise and my daughters sight dictates that i have to assist her. Other passengers were not impressed. I would like the airlines to take the initiative to have all children boarded early as if we board with everyone else, the aisles will be blocked as my children try to get organised."
Cons: "Food was not good, seats not comfy"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "crew was professional and very attentive and beer and wine on the flight."
Cons: "wish they had more movies choices from the u.s."

Pros: "5 stars all around 5 stars around"

Cons: "Very nice services"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was as expected"
Cons: "Plane was hot and a lot of food but it wasn't very good."
Cons: "United did not allocate to code share flight on correct date. I was rufused to be on the board at the ticket counter and ANA code share company ask to call to united 1-800 #. I missed the flight and ended up buying one way ticket from other air line with my own expense."
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent."
Pros: "2 inches more legroom in economy than other airlines on that route."
Pros: "Most all."

Pros: "On time, comfort, good food, good deal"
Pros: "Everything but the food menu. But it's okay. I usually order Hindu meal."
Cons: "Nothing except food menu. The standard menu does not change very much. It's always very similar."
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Cons: "Not ok"
Pros: "Delightful service, comfortable seats, delicious food... what a treat! It was a pleasure to fly ANA and I look forward to doing so again."
Pros: "Great service, everyone was happy to do their job"
Cons: "Sitting on the back rows , when I was served my food the lady said there was no more options I had to take what was left, meaning if I wanted the pasta I would Not get it because unfortunately I got a sit at the back of the airplane, but I paid the same amount of money for the ticket as the person sitting 20 rows in front of me It is outrageous"
Pros: "A N A Very good, space between chairs is very good, crew very professional and friendly"
Pros: "overall clean and comfortable, service is great"
Cons: "Limited movie and news programs"
Pros: "Business class is the best"
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "The service. The friendly crew. The clean airplane and bathrooms, the food and drinks. A1"
Cons: "Qatar airline is one of the best ways to fly!"

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and helpful in getting you settled on the flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit Hectic in Bangkok."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Kuwait, due to poor condition for landing in Doha and we loose connection to Bucharest."
Pros: "Everyone at Qatar Airlines is amazing. The service and inflight accommodations are great, and they are always looking for how to make your travel more comfortable. I highly recommend!"
Cons: "It would be nice to have socks to put on for when I want to take my shoes off."
Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
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."
Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"

Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like but maybe that I wasn't in Business Class. Just joking!!!"
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"
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: "Crew was great"
Cons: "- The Flight was canceled to fly directly from DOH to PHL.... Our party was put on a transfer at ORD...added additional 8 hours of layover... flight itself wasn't terrible... but the bathroom situation could be hectic..."
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."
Pros: "Great flights. lots of room in economy."
Pros: "I don't like at all"
Cons: "Costumer service in Thailand was very bad and pool. Staff is so rude and looks down people."
Pros: "I was given great service by a Nadine in Detroit with JetBlue. She was very calm and helpful with me getting a baggage claim."
Cons: "My bag wasn't transferred to the next plane in Boston so I couldn't get my bags when I got off the plane. I wish someone would have told me because j waited in Detroit for about 1 hour for my bags without any mention of bags that didn't transfer."
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Customer Service was excellent. Very roomie, and comfortable. Plane was also very neat and clean. They also had all of the latest movies and other entertainment. I will for sure fly with them again."
Pros: "I like the space, equipment that work Space in comparison with other airlines but could be even better once human rights become more important than cashing in ( that is a comment meant for all airlines"
Cons: "The wifi was useless"
Pros: "I just flew from Bangkok to Miami, with a connection in Doha. The roundtrip ticket was about the weirdest one listed (less than $1000USD). For the price, it was a really good flight. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable, food was more than decent, and there was a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Earlier in the year I flew a similar flight for a similar price on Emirates. Emirates I liked more for one reason in particular. Emirates had one attendant whose job was solely to clean the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I love the idea of a constantly cleaned bathroom on such a long flight. Qatar didn't have this."
Pros: "Great service, smooth flight...on time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Some of the touch screens weren't working"
Pros: "Food options and timing options , Ambience , seats configuration, type of seats, extensive entertainment options"
Cons: "I was wholly satisfied , service was courteous , requests were carried timely and seamlessly ."
Pros: "Kept my Insulated tea mug filled with hot water."
Cons: "Plane left 1 hr late. Crew tried to make me check my carry on because it was a "full" flight and even though my medication was in it and I did not have a lock. Baggage handling bent my pull up handle - it no longer works - suit ace was brand new."
Pros: "on time, good planes, no problems, good food and service, bags arrived quickly, what else is there to hope for?"
Pros: "When my main, very large over-weight suitcase was not able to be accepted, the Qatar Airways check-in representative was very clear and helpful, in explaining what to do (purchase inexpensive box + tape, re-pack some items from the suitcase-->create two pieces of baggage at correct weight)."
Pros: "Their new fleet of A350 is modern, luxury, then top off with best crew services, this is one of the most comfortable flights I've ever had. Our flight was almost 14 hours, and it didn't feel too bad given the choices of movie and entertainment. The air crew were extra careful and caring about their passengers. They were also polite and very professional."
Cons: "Since the flight was long, the lavatory became a bit dirty, full and messy by the end of the flight. Food was ok, although I think they had better menu from PHL to DOH. They ran out of sausage and omelette choice towards the end seatings."
Pros: "This was our first experience with Qatat Airlines. The service, food and ample leg room was excellent"
Pros: "Airport is big and comfortable"
Cons: "1. Even though is a new airport, many times they still bus passengers to the terminal. Even a 777 with 300 persons cannot get a gate. 2. Monitors with flight departures are very hard to read. There are not enough monitors so the flights listing alternate, and you have to wait a long time for your flight to appear. 3. Font size in the monitors is too small. 4. The flight departures in the monitors should be sorted out by destination name and not by time. People always know where they are going but not necessarily the exact departure time. 5. Silent screens displaying news in the waiting areas are useless. They should have the captions on at least."
Pros: "the best airline"
Pros: "Brand new plane. Good entertainment systems. Food was decent."
Cons: "Beware of you have a short layover in Doha. I had 2 hour layover and it was barely enough time to make the connection. We were herded through security like cattle. Must have been several hundred of people in line. People kept cutting in line because they too had a very tight connection. Chos is what comes to mind. Not sure how this can be a 5 star airline. Maybe for those in business and first class. I think Turkish Airlines is easy better, and they Are a4 start airline and less expensive. Maybe if the chaos at the transition gate gets improvement I may reconsider. Also, I'm positive that the chair in front of me reclined more than the others. The guy slammed back his chair into my lap and my beverage spilled all over me. Inconsiderate people aren't necessary their fault, but people need to stop being idiots and think of others, especially during meal times. The reclining potion of the chairs need to be better controlled or fixed."
Pros: "Nice, pretty fly attendants. They worked all the time to respond to all passengers requests. Good service. Smile and positive attitude . Boarding on time ."
Pros: "What did I like? We arrived safely and I received an aisle seat."
Cons: "What didn't I like? There were far too many liberties taken to ensure the comfort of others at the expense of my comfort and that of my 13 friends. While we were not seated at the back of the plane, we were served last and never received the full choice of meal options."
Pros: "It was an alright flight. The plane was clean."
Cons: "They served the opposite aisle beverages, but neglected to do the same for our entire aisle. So I missed out on a cup of coffee. Not a big deal, but one that you wouldn't expect from an airline that prides itself on being world class. They also shut the entertainment down with about 40 minutes left in the flight."
Pros: "Entertainment system Food Service Punctuality Space between seats"
Pros: "Polite, responsive employees. Great service."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "we were on the big airbus, I was flying economy but can't remember seats being so close together on other economy flights. I think that they've had the spacing made smaller so that they can have more seating."
Cons: "everything...terrible airline"
Cons: "Better food options but that’s for all airlines!"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Cons: "There was wery cold on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Transit process at Istanbul airport was not very smooth. Ground staff could have been more helpful."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
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: "Two things stood out. 1. The flight attendants were amazingly helpful in making sure the luggage was placed in overhead bins. 2. They gave out kits with a toothpaste and brush even for economy class! Nice service overall. Polite and efficient."
Cons: "Istanbul airport leaves much to be desired."
Cons: "Too warm, chaotic boarding, not enough baggage space, airline couldn’t upgrade me at the gate with miles."
Pros: "Entertainment screens good"
Cons: "On the flight from Istanbul to Malaga the entertainment screens were very poor."
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Pros: "Sandwich was good and the seats had good padding and comfortable."
Pros: "Service, flight and landing, exceptional!!!"
Cons: "No cons..."
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Food was good. One thing I like about Turkish Arilines is that the plastic containers they use for food are a variety of shapes and sizes. This really helps the food service seem less industrial."
Cons: "Check-in was ludicrously slow, though that may have been due more to customers than to staff... Entertainment system at my seat not functioning."
Cons: "Plane delayed Missed connection"
Cons: "Priority boarding was messed-up - no queue discipline was even attempted by the gate staff. The business class seats were uncomfortable and not comfortable to sleep in. The footrest was not long enough and the feet were dangling in the air. The blanket and bedding was provided almost 3 hours after take-off Worst of all was baggage handling. Our luggage was severely damaged. The handle to the suitcases was torn off. In addition the bags and the contents were wet when we received them in Boston. IT had been raining in Istanbul and it seems the bags were left out in the open. I've been trying to get Turkish to repair the torn-off handles but I'm constantly hitting a wall. I have filed a claim but the support staff sends extremely brief denials with no explanation."
Pros: "the personal screen is great, the crew were nice and plesent, nothing went wrong..."
Cons: "I had vigie meal and it was not so good. I wan't order it again, next time I'll order only fruit and vegetables."
Cons: "See above, very poor experience with Turkish airlines. On the flight to NY, I asked for some food (the cheese sandwiches) only to be told that they did not have enough for the flight and that they ran out. If you are going to offer something inflight, should you not make sure that you have enough of the item?"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable and pleasant and the crew helpful. Customer Service dept in Chicago was helpful when the flight arrived late and we had to be rescheduled."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving which means I and many others missed out connecting flights. However, Turkish put us up in Chicago overnight and provided us with food vouchers."
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "No space"
Pros: "Crew is super nice and helpful. Aircraft is pleasant"
Cons: "Food is okay but the portions are tiny."
Pros: "Service, timing of flight, entertainment system."
Cons: "There used to be more variety of food choices."
Pros: "El almuerzo fue muy rico y la atención del personal excelente"
Cons: "Un poco de calor en la cabina me pareció raro pero llamativo"
Pros: "The food was delicious. I loved that there were blankets, pillows, and headphones for everyone and they were not at extra cost. We also received care bags with lip balm, socks, slippers and a night mask as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. The flight did not seem like 12 hours. Thankfully."
Pros: "Fantastic food and service"
Pros: "Ozan was a perfect attendant. Always asked us how we were and helped us when we needed anything."
Pros: "Worst airline ever"
Cons: "Worst airline ever."
Pros: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth . Aircraft looks better than usual ones on this route . Istanbul -lagos though with very little leg room ."
Cons: "The food is a total zero. Food is presented to human being like begged on the street . Pasta with just tomatoes sauce ? No meat , chicken or fish absolutely empty . The chicken meal had like 2 spoons of riice thrown in . Food was very unappealing . For a flight of about 7hrs it could have been better. My flight from U S to Istanbul was perfect . Meals , service ,bathrooms all good . Please they need to improve on the African route or stay off the route ."
Pros: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."
Pros: "As always, great entertainment system. Constantly updating and improving."
Cons: "For some reason, I didn't get the option to choose a meal type at check-in, as I sometimes have in the past. Seeing as it's Passover, and I don't eat meat, I wasn't really able to eat much from the default meal I was given."
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."
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: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"
Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Pros: "very nice and friendly cabin crew that gives a great service. many new movies , music.. etc..very good entertainment! the seats are comfortable. the food was taisty"
Cons: "the bording took too long"
Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."
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: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Pilot announces that we will land 15 minutes early and to buckle and prepare to land in about 20 minutes. 40 minutes later, we were still on air, no explanation given!"
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."
Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized"
Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Cons: "Too short a connection between flights. Missed connection. No priority for those with connecting flights. No customer service to ensure passengers know which gates to go through and if passenger has chance of making flight. No recognition of time it takes to get through customs and security to make connecting flight. Actually any semblance of customer service was lacking for passengers to make connecting flights."
Cons: "The crew and the food, specially the food."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was OK."
Cons: "Individual space was tight made worse by some inconsiderate people who put their seats as far back as possible. This should be regulated."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."
Cons: "Hour late departure and still only loaded 1/3 of the luggage. Communication about the luggage problem was poor"
Cons: "Over 2 hours late, and this flight has been late 6 of the last 7 days"

Worst transatlantic coach experience I’ve had in years, including budget airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Flight attendants were so attentive in Premium Economy. Entertainment choices were excellent. There was a USB charging port on the back of the seat. All good!"
Pros: "1.5 hour flight, on time and all that one should expect from a good airline."
Cons: "Passport control in Frankfurt was slow, very long linen under staffed"
Cons: "The cabin crew ignored my repeated calls for service. I willing gave up my seat so a couple could sit together with their kid and sat behind my wife and kids to be nice. They than reclined the seat back and my seat was broken do I asked them to put the seat forward and they ignored me. I informed the cabin crew that they weren't being considerate after all I gave up my seat to them. The cabin crew told me I could leave my 4 yest old and 3 year old alone and move to a new seat."

Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."

However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"
Pros: "I like on time departure, fast boarding and fast disembarkation."
Cons: "Flight attendants passed only one time with water!"
Cons: "Rude cabin crew, dirty plane, have to pay extra, they will accept USD but give you change in euros. Extra luggage fees and ridiculous weight limitations"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The plane was clean/as to be expected. Overall, the flight was comfortable (again, as to be expected)."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and unorganized. "Dinner" meal could have been served earlier and it could have been more filling (we were so hungry!) There could have been more opportunities to get water. They ran out of water bottles."
Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa airline has no intention to help their passengers and happily see their passengers suffer from the airline's mistakes"
