Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"
Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Cons: "My luggage is lost"
Cons: "The food is good k"
Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"

Pros: "The crew was great! The entertainment was pretty good too."
Cons: "The cabin was WAY too warm."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Pros: "On time! Courteous. Free meal! Even on flight less than 2 hours!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"
Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"
Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"
Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Everything except the seats."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."

Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."

Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "The plane was very clean the seats were neat and everyone was very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was professional and attentive. 55 minute flight so food was ice cream, beverages, and a piece of Swiss chocolate. Plane's entertainment system in my section did not work. I had to check my carry-on!"
Cons: "All of the above with the exception of crew & food comment."
Pros: "There was a half hour delay due to some no-show passengers. The flight was delayed while their bags were removed. The problem was explained well. The flight crew seemed to made up for much of the delay by flying faster or more directly so the total flight time did not increase by 30 minutes. Fortunately this was our final flight segment so the delay was not a problem."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"
Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Pros: "I had no idea i would be charged for just one check in bag!"
Cons: "I had no idea i would be charged for checked in bag! Scam!"
Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."
Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."
Pros: "Croissants and chocolate on an early morning flight"
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."
Pros: "Perfect service, on time"
Pros: "Nothing really, seems everyone is underwhelming in this market"
Cons: "Quality of food and service"

Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The scone and roll were blah and dry - and so much bread in one meal!!! My seat charger didn’t work :("
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "Amazing and helpful crew. Great seat."
Pros: "The crew on Virgin Atlantic was superb!"
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."
Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Cons: "Unfortunately because the flight was delayed 2 times I was going to going to miss my connect flight to London. So I canceled my trip. I would appreciate a refund as I don’t understand what all the delays were about"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."
Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
Pros: "Loved the food and ambiance"
Cons: "The on air entertainment was surprisingly low quality"
Pros: "I thought the airline amenities were excellent and it was a seamless process getting on the flight. The flight attendants were very warm and accommodating. I felt immediately welcome as soon as I got on the flight. I liked that they were playful with my son and engaged him."
Cons: "Nothing. We did leave a piece of luggage on the plane so hoping that things turn out okay."
Pros: "Entertainment Meal service and quality"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"
Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic continues to give great service. Their lounges are way above all other airline lounges. It is difficult to get well prepared and fresh fish in lounges, but Virgin Atlantic knows how to do it."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "The flight was a good flight overall. I was able to relax on the flight because I had the option of paying for a seat with more leg space. The cabin crew was pleasant and quite helpful"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that I had to pay for extra leg space. I’ve travelled with other airlines and had to option to choose my seat without any additional charge"
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Leg space was cramped. Parking was very far.food"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Button was stuck in so I couldn't keep the seat up. Also a light was stuck in the on position for the entire flight not allowing people to sleep."
Pros: "From check in to landing in London, the gracious, helpful crew impressed us with their attitude and service"
Cons: "Sound didn't work on some of the entertainment choices"
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "All the meals and movies included"
Cons: "the seats are not as comfortable as those on new planes"
Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff! Food was very good too."
Cons: "More leg room always desirable"
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"

Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."
Cons: "It was late leaving."
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Seems like they are always bringing you something. Very friendly. Great entertainment to choose from. Plenty of leg room even for a tall person like myself (at least compared to other airlines)."

Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "The flight was safe and efficient."

Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"

Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"

Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."
Cons: "It was too cold on the feet during the night. The blanket was not enough. The food lacked good vegetables. The asparagus was too tough. If you wanted to avoid sugar, you could not eat breakfast."
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Pros: "The food was good The crew was fantastic, friendly and accommodating Flight was on time"

Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."

Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."

Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."
Cons: "New Istanbul airport requires kilometres to walk and then take a super crowded bus. Insane"
Pros: "The flight was empty-ish in the back of the plane, & I was allowed to lie down across 4 seats. I liked that they allowed boarding from the back of the plane (along w/ front). I also liked that most of the food was vegetarian (& the crew pointed out what to avoid). I always forget to special order."
Cons: "The boarding announcements were not audible where I was sitting in the airport, so that should be better."
Pros: "excellent crew, food entertainment and seats"
Cons: "They were the best among the airlines I ever used"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."

Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."
Pros: "Food, drinks and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Before my flight I choosed my seat online and it was aisle seat. But when I checked in at airport they changed my seat to middle seat. I am not sure why there is a option to choose my seat if they are not going to honor it. Also seats were very little and there is not much room. I am only 5.4 and 140 pound. So not sure how big people can handle seating there for 10 hours."
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive to needs. I arrived safely at my destination so that’s all that matters."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed at CAI and no one informed us of this. I almost missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good meal, good video options, high quality crew"
Cons: "finding check-in area was confusing"
Pros: "Excellent all around"
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "The service, food,seats,crew,hot towel, slippers & more."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Excellent staff, everything very clean, smooth flight, good movies."
Cons: "The seats in Economy are too close together. A few more inches would make things better. The food was okay, some parts good, others so-so"
Cons: "There was a female attendant who as soon as I got to my seat asked me to stop blocking the aisle. I found this very annoying because I'd only just stopped at my seat. I found her manner disrespectful."

Cons: "Second leg of trip had no werking monitors. no WiFi on any flights...."
Pros: "Excellent respect of timing : check in , take off and landing and delivery of luggage. Crew professional and quicly available Connecting flight was possible thanks to respect of time.

Pros: "They allowed me to change my flight for free because I could not get a visa to Turkey. Thanks!"
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "With some reason, everything was smooth at Istanbul compare to SFO."
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Smaller aircraft but better seats, comfortable"
Cons: "The air conditioner stopped working it was in incredibly hot on the aircraft cabin"

Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"

Cons: "I hated my seat and was not given an opportunity to select one."
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "Foods are not so good, standard. Crews didn't smile. They don't smile why? They don't Greet. Very poor service."

Cons: "No warning or info when we hit a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "all movies offer subtitles, can't turn off which some people might feel disturbing"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."
Cons: "They left my bagage in Estambul"
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Pros: "Seats were roomy. Plenty of movies."
Cons: "Long gap between meals, they didn't walk thru and offer enough water or sandwiches. No sandwiches even once? Sometimes cabin was warm."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Cons: "There seemed to be no check in which confused me a little. The luggage pick up was more of a zoo than usual and plenty of suffocating dust from construction while we waited."
Pros: "A three hour flight and they gave us a very nice meal and beverage selection. Never happen in the U.S. unless you are flying first class, and even then they wouldn't exceed Turkish Airlines. When did you last have metal eating utensils with your meal..... if you even got a meal. Plus multi channel seat back entertainment on a three hour flight. I wish the U.S. would open domestic markets to foreign carriers."
Cons: "Really tight seats. Almost impossible to eat your meal."
Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."
Pros: "Loved the food service."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot? How do they work like that? I'm surprised the flight attendants didn't get heat stroke. Anyway, I suppose its cultural as I noticed a lot of places overly heated in turkey."
Cons: "My food was allready open. And the flight attendant who gave it to me was ride throughout the plane ride. No USB. :("
Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Staff helpful"
Cons: "We booked our seats online and later at check in received boarding passes with totally different seats. Ordered kids meals and was informed that they dont have any for our kids :("
Cons: "The food was so cheap... pasta and a muffin. I’ll be looking around for another airline."
Cons: "The crew dropped the bottle to the head of my son."
Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."
Pros: "Service, yr air hostesses are so polite."
Cons: "Food was too little for dinner and breakfast both"
Cons: "Passengers should be notified of the process of changing airplanes at Vienna. What a nightmare. We were scheduled for 50 minutes between flights. Not really enough. If we were aware of what was required it may have helped, however the distance we had to walk was rather extreme."
Pros: "From start to finish there were no hiccups. It was a pleasant journey."
Pros: "Everything was awesome best flight i had in my life."
Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Pros: "Very good drink service (one cold and one hot drink)"
Pros: "Absolutely fantastic service from the check in counter until deplaning. Delicious food, snacks & even wine & other alcohol included. The staff is super friendly & very tentative. It was really a treat to fly Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "This is just nit picking and if I absolutely had to I’d just hope for a more of a variety of movies, TV shows & music if possible."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Delayed at boarding Delayed inside plane No entertainment No room for my long legs - no option"
Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."
Pros: "Great airline, everything on time,exelent service, great staff, good food"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"
Pros: "Flight was good and everything worked out perfectly."
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent. Better food in coach than I get on first class domestic flights. Also, the in-flight entertainment was very good. I watched a couple of science shows and extreme sports shows that I truly enjoyed."
Cons: "There wasn't much I did not enjoy that could be changed. I chose to go coach and had to put up with seating that was more cramped than I like, but I expected that."
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "We had to stand around for a long time waiting for a bus to take us to the plane. The bus was horribly crowded. Then we arrived at the plane and had to walk up the stairs to get on. There was no food served---just a cracker and some juice or water. After we arrived in Paris we waited a long time for the baggage to arrive."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding area cramped, all classes and rows boarded at same time."
Pros: "The actual flight was professionally well-handled"
Cons: "Someone from the airlines needs to help people transferring at Paris airport. I was sent to three different terminals (which required two different bus transfers) to get to my United flight to the states. I had been warned by a friend that the Paris airport is the worst. It is! And the airlines should bear some responsibility for the lack of clear information. I could write about this for a long time."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy. Will fly again."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant, calm, and efficient."
Pros: "Good movie selection on flight"
Cons: "Got bumped from the seat I reserved after boarding without explanation and when I explained I was traveling with a group was simply told that's too bad. Their customer service is awful and had already submitted a complaint for a return flight which was never followed up on."
Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "to small seats"
Cons: "The delay in take-off"
Cons: "At 11h30 of 14/9 we (HOANG MINH CHAU and NGUYEN SI THANH) were standing at the ticket counter in Vienna and we could not check in due to no payment yet for the ticket and so the reservation has been cancelled. Due to this reason we had have to buy new tickets at the airport ticketing counter. So please sort out your problem with the airline and get back to me. From my bank the payment has been done yet to you. We had have double pay for one trip."
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "Excellent personnel. Will use Austrian Airlines again!"
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "Seat was small and narrowed with no leg room at all Worst I've ever seen"
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Pros: "Overall the flight was better than most. The crew was friendly, competent and as attentive as coach allows these days. I appreciated the attendant who asked the man in front of me to put his seat back up during the meal. The little red pillows were great - big enough to be useful and comfortable. Although we chose not to watch a movie, we were impressed with the offerings. Comfort on a long flight in coach is a thing of the past but we knew that when we chose to fly that class."
Cons: "Most of the crew was great (hence the five star rating) and the flight in general was at least on a par with competitive airlines but we did have an unpleasant encounter with a young man who we were told was the purser. When my husband asked about what seemed to us like a very high level of security (including dogs on the gangway as we boarded the plane), this young man replied in a very condescending manner,"It's America. You tell me". Well, we are Americans, not always in agreement with our country's actions and attitudes, but that comment was needlessly dismissive and hostile."
Pros: "More organized boarding, crew, piloting"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Great plane good price for plane ticket."
Pros: "Everything was very good with an exception of being very tight space wise"
Cons: "no leg room, tight rows"
Pros: "The staff were kind"
Cons: "The seat was worn down and very uncomfortable. The screen was super tiny and terrible quality. Everything was caked in old dirt"
