Emirates now started with popup adds in ICE for duty free discount which is very annoying

Pros: "Supportive to my family needs traveling with 2 babies"

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."
Pros: "Everything except food"
Pros: "The flight was not packed so I got three seats to myself to sleep. Emirates has a lot of little touches like glow in the dark stars stuck to the cabin roof."
Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "Crew is friendly, flight was smooth and timely."
Cons: "Why doesn’t economy class have a passenger lounge for passengers with really long layovers? I had a 15 hour layover and nothing to tide me over during that time. Ridiculous. Every half decent airline out there caters to all classes of passengers. This is an extremely elitist airline. Will definitely try to avoid"

Cons: "The cuatomer service at checkin was rude and the gate staff in dubai was also very rude i will never fly with them again."

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Nothing i like even."
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive staff who made the flight as pleasurable as possible for us. One of the staff helped me switch from the full row I was in to an empty row which made the long flight so much more comfortable."

Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"
Pros: "Courteous in-flight staff, delicious food."
Cons: "Long distance travel at single stretch on Chicago - Dubai sector."
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Pros: "nice plane , good crew, on time,"
Cons: "I booked 2 tickets way over 6 months in advance for our honey moon and they did not sit us together on our 8 hr flight to milan. I always hear how people get complimentary upgrades in such a situation. Apparently not for us."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."

Pros: "The Airport handling staff I happen to deal with in Chicago and Dubai were very courtios and helpful . Same goes with the in flight crew ....too good ."
Cons: "There's nothing I can think of EXCEPT , they did not give disembarkation cards to fill in the aircraft befitting landing which caused everyone lot of inconvenience after landing at Hyderabad airport ."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, service, food, drinks, entertainment Dubai terminal is amazing & stopover was worth it"
Cons: "10-across seating in a 3-4-3 layout on a 777 is unbearable for a 13.5 hr longhaul flight like Chicago to Dubai Passengers' arms ended up on top of one another in this totally full flight--hence "Armsie" class if you like to play armsie with strangers Fly only if you are very thin with narrow shoulders + hips"
Pros: "Food was great."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane well maintained"
Cons: "Delay, poor boarding"
Cons: "I was not notified, until I was already at JFK, about a 3hr50min delay in departure from JFK due to mechanical that happened in Istanbul many many hours before. Then the connecting flight at 11:15am IST/TLV was fully booked and I was booked only at 13:30 IST/TLV and therefore arrived more than 7 hours after my original schedule - due to a mechanical. According to IATA and international rules I am now due a full refund on my flight cost and will start proceedings against Turkish Airlines for this money. It was a nightmare for all the hours waiting. We also had to deplane in IST from the JFK flight on steps rather than into a gate!! Same with the TLV/IST flight. Terrible."
Pros: "Excellent service. Very tasty food."
Cons: "Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system."
Pros: "Food and service in business class were splendid."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "I was impressed by how Turkish Air treated me when I missed my connecting flight in Istanbul It was confusing to say the least but once I got to the right location they could not have been any friendlier, kinder, or gracious My hats off to Turkish Air THANK YOU"
Cons: "It was a tight space and they kept giving me things (pillow,blanket, slippers and socks, and headphones) that I didn’t need or have room for I appreciate the thought Return trip I’ll be more aware and decline what I don’t need"
Cons: "Connecting flight From plane to the gates"
Pros: "The food, comfort and wine on Turkish Airlines was wonderful."
Cons: "Turkish Airline’s needs to improve their online experience. Please just pay someone to fix it - you don’t have the city of Los Angeles as a option for home address. In case TA’s web developers are reading this, Los Angeles is the city with LAX in it. I guess you don’t have to know every city, but maybe download a complete list of cities and use that? There are lots of open source options and I can help you, if it gets confusing. Or, alternatively, allow users to type their city with a keyboard. Scrolling through every city in the state of California is not easier than typing Los Angeles. Especially when arriving at Los Gatos and thinking “wait... did I miss it?” That’s not the only thing wrong with your website, but start here. Look Turkish airlines is wonderful, I’m just saying that it was hell actually buying a ticket and signing up for your rewards program."
Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"
Cons: "The seat are not comfortable for a long flight, I felt I was on a city bus it's very cramped and tight and I'm a medium size person, totally not recommended for heavy people"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"
Pros: "Some of the crew members were sweet, and helpful. I liked that the bathroom had soap and lotion as well."
Cons: "The security was rude when we were getting into our gate. They humiliated a man because he didn't understand their accent. There was a group of young employees and they came off as very immature. There was a crying baby next to me for the majority of the 13 hours. They ran out of food, and I had no choice but to eat the pasta option even though I do not eat pasta in my normal life. My knees hurt from not having space to stretch out for such a long flight. It was freezing cold and they did not have extra blankets. It felt like my section kept getting skipped over for everything (food, liquids, general checking in to make sure people were okay). We boarded late, and left late. When I arrived the luggage took VERY long - almost an hour - to come out."
Cons: "seats a bit tight"
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Pros: "Best food ever on plane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving NY"
Pros: "Everything was great. Service. Very comfortable. The staff was great"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my flight scheduled to go Mykonos"
Pros: "the staff was so polite and helpful thank you"
Cons: "The plane was 2 half hours late departing from JFK to Istanbul and the customer service in Turkish Airline in the beginning did not give me a good service I believe this will be the first time and the last time"
Cons: "seat 53 B is not a seat for human beings on a plane. this is the last seat on the plane. next to food area and bathroom. seat back does not go all the way back. it is not built for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "More than 90 min delay in the flight from NYC to Istanbul. Caused us to get late to the next flight. The replacement we got was after more than 6 waiting hours although earlier flights took off to the same destinatiob."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great flight overall. Comfortable, nice amenities. Staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Did not like the carry on being based on weight instead of size. Also did not like that there was not a self check in kiosk."
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor. Very few staff new how to manage the situation, which resulted in long delays, very frustrated passengers and an overall very negative experience. I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Pros: "The service I received on Turkish Airlines was excellent. I live in rural Rwanda and it was really nice to actually sit back, relax, and not worry about getting to where I was going. The staff was courteous and friendly and even let me keep my can of tomato juice. These may seem like small things to you but it made me feel at home for the first time in over a year and I want you guys to know I truly appreciated it. In addition to that, the flight was actually affordable and I was able to make it to New York to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday. Job well done! Thanks again and best of luck! Sincerely, Emily Hardy"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey"
Cons: "I hate that KAYAK sells me this package and after collecting their commission the only customer support is to direct me to subcontractors which in turn direct me to the airline which in turn NEVER PICKS THEIR F*CKING PHONES UP!!! BAD BAD BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE #NEVEREVERKAYAK"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled. There was terrible communication from the Turkish airlines staff and a complete inability to handle the situation. The entire flight was stuck in the airport for while without any information. The customer service hotline was unable to help anyone because there was a miss communication from the staff in the airport and our flight hadn't been canceled in their system yet. It's was my worst flight experience to date"
Pros: "Wifi when I get to turkey, without needing a fan sim"
Pros: "They didn't want to go to work today. And it's your fault. So they will punish you."
Pros: "They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all)."
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Pros: "Boarding and entertainment were fine"
Cons: "I'm so sorry to share a negative experience as my previous Turkish flights have been fabulous! This crew took more than 1 hr 15 mins to initially serve the meal and drinks. There were only 30 rows on the plane and two attendant groups doing serving, This is much slower than on other bigger flights with the same number of attendants. Pickup of trays was also slow. They spilled food on the floor more than once and on me during pick up of trays, without even excusing themselves to me or other passengers. It just seemed like an unusual Turkish Airlines crew. Crews are normally way more professional. I will continue to fly Turkish again and hope the next time will be a better experience."
Pros: "Connecting flight was not waiting from Instabul to Athens since the airplane from JFK left with a 1h 20min delay ."
Pros: "Food was great! Drinks was varied The crew was very nice and thoughtful"
Cons: "There was no entertainment since the system didn't work all the flight. All the boarding things was very poor both sides of flight. Big delay!!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines never gave me notice or explanation. At least Kayak gave me notice and i appreciate."
Pros: "I really enjoyed this flight. The seats were comfortable and clean. They passed out headphones and travel kits, including sleeping masks, earplugs, and toothbrushes. Each seat had its own screen with 200 movies and probably just as many albums. They started the flight off with warm towels, then Turkish delight, before having dinner, a middle set of drinks, and then breakfast. I felt like I was almost in business. Plus the crew were very friendly and accommodating. The boarding was smooth though a bit delayed but that was probably more dependent on the airport than the airline."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. Great food, great service, and great crew. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."
Cons: "It seemed difficult to get the attention of a stewardess for another drink. I guess I could have hit the button calling for someone, but I always feel like too much of a diva by doing that."
