Turkish Airlines service desk took the evidence (my ticket) and then refused to rebook me, forcing me to pay $600 for a new flight and for a visa to Turkey just so I could exit through security to book & pay for it.

We were not allowed to board our flight and the passport office is closed until Tuesday. As a result we lost $700 dollars to the hotel booked and Lufthansa may not reimburse us for the flights which were over $2000. Absolutely horrible service, no help.

Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Cons: "Adjusting the reading lights needs to be more straight forward. It is always hard to find out how to turn the lights off. I like to sleep on planes and every plane seems to be different."
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"

Pros: "No problems. I was satisfied"
Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Pros: "The food was great. The fresh bread is always wonderful."
Cons: "There were no free alcoholic drinks which help me to sleep. I changed seats and moved Mach further back in the plane. I don’t know if that contributed to it, but I was disappointed when I learned of this."
Pros: "That we had a bottle water"
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Pros: "Left on time. 50 minutes early in Copenhagen. Food was not bad."
Cons: "TSA at EWR was ridiculous. Slow lines and very inefficient."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew"
Cons: "I had a middle seat."
Pros: "All around everything was excellent. Will most likely always fly SAS between Riga and USA."
Cons: "late. support afterwards was awful."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Cons: "The flight from EWR to Oslo was delayed by over 2 hours which meant I would miss my next connection... and I understand that happens sometimes. But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"
Pros: "2 meals included for a 7 hour flight!"
Pros: "Internet not working. Horrible."
Pros: "Every one from the check-in counter to the baggage claim was gracious, courteous and very interested in my well-being. It was quite a lovely experience.."
Cons: "No problems at all... a wonderful trip"
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Cons: "I didn't get any veg options for my dinner at all"
Pros: "First time using SAS and very pleasant trip"
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Pros: "After four hours waiting on the tarmac, at 3AM in the morning, the flying attendants gave us free peanuts. That was very thoughtful."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. We waited on the tarmac for almost 4 hours, due a technical problem. Finally, they gave up attempting to solve the problem (at 3.30AM), and we disembarked. No assistance at all. No hotel. No meals. Rescheduling was a lengthy process. Staff was rude. Really a nightmare of an experience. Note to self: never ever fly again with SAS."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "Crew and plane good. Friendly and English was excellent."
Cons: "There was a delay because of a software issue. They had to shift people around manually because of it. Baggage Fee was extremely high (> $50)"
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "The food, the comfortable seats, boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment options, very few movies, limited kinds of music"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive. Seemed to care about the comfort of the passengers. Very inviting and gracious."
Cons: "Seats and pillows could be more comfortable. All airline food is not good so okay indicated above is above expectations."

Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Pros: "Introduce meals even to economy class"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Cons: "Not much talk from captain about local weather and time."
Pros: "No delays, early landing which made my 50 minute layover seamless."
Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "Excellent communication through email the few days before departures eg confirmation of flight,gate numbers ect. It was my first time with Kayak and will definitely not be my last."
Cons: "nothing !"
Pros: "Everything, especially the entertainment. Food was delicious as well and the flight attendants were very accommodating."
Cons: "Small screen tv's that were mounted on the bathroom walls at the middle of the plane remained on during sleeping time and were too bright. Difficult to sleep during this as the scenery pictures continually changed."
Pros: "Crew was great. Loved having the layflat seat instead of regular Saga seat. It’s a leased plane due to the grounding of the 737-max so we got layflat seats instead of WI-FI (which is way better in my opinion)"
Cons: "O M G! It was about 150F while we were waiting to take off and for some reason, business class doesn’t have overhead vents. I had rivulets of sweat dripping down my face and almost felt woozy. The plane was also a bit worn and dirty compared to the last time I flew Icelandair in 2016."
Pros: "It wasn’t full so we got a row to ourselves people were nice"
Cons: "TXL Airport is super slow with luggage."
Cons: "The crew barely came by, the seats were TINY and you have to pay for everything. It was really a bad experience"
Cons: "The seats are narrow whereby you are overlapping shoulders with the next person. Good leg room for short people. Food/beverage service is limited for a transatlantic flight. Outside of coffee, tea, and water, all beverages are at a cost and there is no snack (i.e., pretzels, nuts)."
Cons: "They downsized the plane and bumped me and my travel companion. Worse experience of my life."
Cons: "unexpected luggage charge for an international flight. $100 for each way!"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. Seat recline was reasonable comfortable and Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process in KEF. Everyone is rushed from a comfortable sitting area to stand in line. Then herded to a waiting area without seats to stand around for 20 minutes until a bus shows up to take you to your plane. Pretty poor system."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Charge got headphones???"
Cons: "The plane was late leaving Boston and again leaving Iceland. The seats were very uncomfortable on the first leg of the trip, and marginally better in the second leg."
Pros: "The USB plug and screen"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "Delay in Philadelphia affected this score"
Pros: "Everything but having to pay $69 for a checked bag was fine."
Cons: "Had to pay $69 to check one bag even though economy class is entitled to one free bag. We specifically brought a checked bag expecting it was free. Otherwise we would have only done carry on."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived to destination."
Pros: "boarding was easy and flight was on time"
Cons: "was a fortune to check a bag $95 .I travel a lot and have never paid more than $50 No snacks oferred at all. seats were awful-no room"

Pros: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "Service on the plane was excellent."
Cons: "Long wait to get off of the plane in Reykjavik."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "They did not offer any complimentary snacks whatsoever on this international flight. They only gave out free water."
Pros: "On time, polite and helpful assistance at airport with seat assignmnent issue ( all seats on a four leg ticket had been unassigned after assignment three months prior), generous leg room, very good tea on flight. Slept in Reykjavik airport on long layover due to dreadful weather. More comfortable than most airports."
Cons: "All was fine."
Cons: "I wasn't on their passenger list. Wi-Fi is expensive for how unreliable it is. Sometimes it works flawlessly, sometimes it doesn't work at all. They also lost my luggage. Overall, a very poor showing."
Pros: "They brilliantly board passengers with window seats first! The seats are roomy and the lighting above the storage bins is a nice touch."
Pros: "Kindness and flexibility of staff with health concern."
Cons: "Luggage didn't make it"
Pros: "Movies choices, free checked bag"
Cons: "Lack of complimentary inflight snacks"
Pros: "The bump was easy and smooth. Got me to Paris at roughly the same time."
Pros: "The on demand movies and shows"
Cons: "Paying for headphones"
Cons: "No aircon, small seats and no snacks/food served on the flight. Also the entertainment offers were meager for moderately expensive tickets. The fun began in REK. We arrived on time but something at the gate was broken so instead of bringing stairs to the plane they kept us on the plane for an additional 45 min sitting at the gate. During the wait we asked the flight attendants multiple times to make sure our planes would be waiting and were told that Iceland air planes will wait. When we finally got off with stairs, most connecting flights, even from Iceland air, had already left and passengers were stuck in REK. We were then re-routed through Copenhagen after pressuring the gate attendants into making sure we would be arriving in Frankfurt the same day since we could not spend a day in REK as other passengers had to do. We spent an entire day in airports and planes finally making Frankfurt (including time changes) at 830pm, 9 hours later than planned. All in all I won't fly Iceland air again."
Cons: "We waited 4 hours on tarmac before they decided to cancel the plane. It's ok that planes have issues and unforeseen things happen, but the crew didn't do a good job at showing that they can handle unexpected situations well. There was little to no communication throughout the ordeal. The decision to board the plane then tow it to a place to work on repairs with everybody onboard for 4 hours, when we're sitting on all this jet fuel seems poor."
Pros: "Efficiency, attentiveness, and competency of the crew. ALSO: Baggage included in the fare - no surprises."
Cons: "The industry standard of cramming patrons into tight quarters. NOTE: These ratings and comments apply to all four flights between Boston and Stockholm."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "Broken seat. Couldn't recline. Another seat than that booked online."
Pros: "The crew staff was friendly and immedirabtlt found my a blanket when I requested one"
Cons: "39b is the last row and middle seat. What is there to like ?"
Pros: "On Time, efficient."
Cons: "The stewardesses disappeared and were hard to contact."
Cons: "crying baby"
Pros: "I was mistakenly told the middle seat 25B was an aisle seat which it would have been with 232 plane rather than the 33 seat g on my plane. This confusion should not occur."
Cons: "Lack of any real concern or compassion about the issue about my seat assignment."
Cons: "Didn't like the disorganization - didn't call passengers by rows or any other system - didn't like taking the bus to the tarmac"
Cons: "My luggage is missing"
Pros: "We were upgraded to saga- thank you!!"
Pros: "seats were hard and uncomfortable not enough leg room , seats are to narrow"
Cons: "bottle of water was pleasant surprise"
Pros: "Thank you for providing a group of 20 students with hotels and meals when they missed their connecting flight in Iceland!"
Pros: "They are very kid friendly, my daughter got a lunch and activity kit for free. The flight was super cheap which is why we chose it but I would pay more to avoid that airport again."
Cons: "older planes not enough recline or seat room. Border patrol in Iceland if you are connecting flights is tight and chaotic we almost missed out flight they had to hold the plane for us and other connecting passengers. One of the airline employees told us the customs people are purposely making it difficult for people due to unhappiness with their wages. I would not book going through Iceland again until this is resolved."
