Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."
Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "The flight delay forced us to run from one end of the Incheon Intl Airport to another to catch our connecting flight."
Pros: "Bags were not checked through to Cebu because of the 10+ hr layover. Had to go out to arrival area to follow up on bag transfer. Korean Air wouldnt issue my boarding pass for my INC to CEB flight at LAX so I have to get in line again at the Korean Air check- in counter in INC then was told to go to Jin Air since it was operated by them. Jin Air wouldn't issue a boarding pass because my flight was at 8 AM the following day. I ended up sleeping at the predept area until the counter opened."
Pros: "More than enough seat space I was on seat 28. I actually slept most of the time which usually doesn't happen so I guess it was just that comfortable. Attendants were great and food was fair but can't really expect much for airplane food. I would definitely fly Korean air again."

Pros: "I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels."
Cons: "The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well"

Cons: "On 2 of our 4 flights on this itinerary, we were last to be served meals and there was only the Korean meal left. My husband chose to eat it both times but I declined... need to provide more western meals."
Cons: "Boarding would have been fast if the passengers seating in the back rows were called first to board, followed by the middle rows, and last to board, people seated in the fron rows (after of course calling the priority passengers. Traffic on the aisle would be avoided"
Pros: "the amount of baggage allowed. the food. the people i was seated with. the flight movie selection. the staff. the beer. the free toothbrush, toothpaste, slippers, jeju island water"

They still gave us seats away from each other even if I explained that we have some health issues that’s why we need to stay together."
Cons: "The seats seemed like they had no padding and it kept stabbing me in the back. Seat belts were so thick and hard i couldn't lean in any direction to get comfortable as it would stab me. My partner and I were also seated separately. Painful flight, disappointed."
Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400.

Cons: "Too small seats I believe Kayak info was China Airlines allowed 55 lbs checked - China Airlines site says 50....so May be important to travelers to do their own verifications..."
Pros: "Nice attention to details like water periodically during flight and warm towels before our meal."
Cons: "The food was only okay. I ordered a special meal and it was bland with mushy veggies and unhealthy looking salads. I’m picky so I may get be a bit more judgemental."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was awesome."
Pros: "cheap ticket buf it comes with a cost-- a seat on the end rear section of the plane!"
Cons: "the cheap ticket that you reserved on line puts you at the tail portion of the plane where you will have to endure a 14 hours of turbulence. food is not impressive! the plane left lax so late that we have to run to our connecting gate in taipei!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants, great attentiveness. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat cushions were VERY hard."
Pros: "Overall, it wasn't a bad experience but it wasn't fantastic."
Cons: "The crew barely smiled."
Cons: "No choice for seats. The assigned seats was in the middle of four chairs. The alternative option was the same, but in different row. (Not sure if these kind of seats leave it to Kayak, or other travel company)."
Pros: "Food was pretty good (for airplane food), staff was friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable"
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."
Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less leg room than other airlines, food is not as good as other airlines. If only the seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "I fly to South East Asia quote often and have tried a a few airlines. China Airlines has been the most consistent in all aspects. On time, ease of flying, on board entertainment. I will continue to look to use this Airline in the future."
Cons: "The food could be better. Maybe offer an American choice?"
Cons: "One of the crew members was a little rude. I was sleeping and was forced to wake up and pull my seat back all the way forward so the person behind me could eat."
Pros: "Service on the ground and in the air was efficient, if somewhat cool and uninterested. (The exception was at checkin counter where the service was great.) options for entertainment were great. Food was decent, legroom was decent, plane was older but still decent...."
Cons: "The entire plane's group of passengers seemed to be lined up at the boarding gate - no explanation why, but they were checking ID's. Then the line just moved into the plane. I prefer boarding by rows, especially when traveling with my young son. Air crew seemed pretty uninterested in anything beyond the basic requirements of the job."
Pros: "Chair comfort (but no location) , food and partially the crew."
Cons: "Terrible procedure of getting the BORDING pass. I had to walk very long distance from arrival to gate 155 to find a CIA desk to get my boarding pass. The worst seat on the plane was assigned to me and CiA procedure didn't give me any chance for a normal seat. I had the bad chance to be served by a HIPER team of two flight attendants that rised my blood pressure. Their egarness to be productive and their rush were NOT justified, especially on such a long flight; low professionalizm."
Cons: "General good!"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was okay. Changing planes in Taipei was enlivened by their funky themed lounges."
Cons: "The first meal was horrible. Things improved somewhat after that but it made a lasting impression."
Pros: "Nice crew, decent food"
Cons: "Very narrow seats, sitting between two mothers with crying infants"
Pros: "Service and flight was mediocre and flight time was longer than I thought."
Cons: "Economy chair doesn't recline at all. It was a minial space compare other airline's international flight."
Pros: "Airplanes are fairly new. Everything seemed fairly clean. Movie choices were good. The staff was really accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Narrow seats in Economy. With every move, I had to be careful not to disturb the person next to me. I am a fairly skinny guy. This was quite challenging when I tried to eat. It was too easy to trigger the flight-attendant call button by accident with the touch screen. The icon is not really obvious and it is close to the screen on and off icon."
Pros: "I am a vegetarian and they didnt have any options. Whatever options the crew could find, they said it was vegetarian but i dont think it was. The crew didnt understand english and couldnt speak english at all. Come-on you are operating an international airlines. The check in took good TWO hours- never have seen this delay in check in."
Pros: "I had to make an emergency trip back home ASAP, and China Airlines had the best schedule. It was my first time flying with them, and I was not sure what to expect. Some quick research about safety and traveler experiences - indicated it would be a reasonably safe and comfortable flight. It was - good seats, smooth takeoff and landing, diligent attendants, and meal service was decent (for example - on par with KLM, better presentation than Air India, not as good as Qatar or ANA). I would consider flying with them again."
Cons: "Lunch meal was a rice/chicken/vegetable/thick sauce micture. Decent, but I was a bit put-off by the soupy rice. Perhaps because I had the congee for the breakfast meal, and had had enough of rice porridge texture."
Cons: "Comfort was horrible! We were cramped in like sardines there was absolutely no room! To walk to rest for 13 hour flight. Crew is stiff a feels like they're paid to smile."
Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "The flight in Premium Economy is a good experience, worth the price of the ticket. I am accustomed to very long flights between Southeast Asia and Europe: this one compares favorably."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the flight. Being a frequent flier I used the very short line in LAX to get my boarding pass. All other passengers were queuing up a very, very, long line. Since every single passenger has to go through a face to face session with a physical person, CI should really have more personnel available at LAX for the check-in procedures. The business lounge, provided by Korean Airlines, is a big disappointment. Food not worth mentioning. Going through security at TPE for passengers in transit there is no short line. The only line is very, very long, although quick enough. The facility for this procedure should also be renewed."
Pros: "One of the beat flying experiences ever. China Airlines does cust at a high level"
Cons: "Nothing to report bad"
Pros: "The flight I was on was leaving at 1:45AM. It took about 15-20 minutes to check in our bags and there were about 75 people ahead of us. We didn't wait at all for TSA, just walked up and there was absolutely no line. The China airlines staff was very nice and helpful. Also, there were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free and they even provided earphones."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable but it wasn't unbearable."
Pros: "Staff was good & food was always on time."
Cons: "I didn't like how the flight felt too congested. Especially on a 13hr flight. There was no self checking in or online check-in available so I had to wait in a long line to check-in. The most negative part about this flight is the 10hr delay in Taiwan. Sleeping in the airport for 10hrs isn't easy and fun especially after a 13hr flight. Overall, not a good experience as I hoped it would be."
Pros: "Entertainment system and the interior of the plane cabin."
Cons: "Crammed seats and how one female flight attendant yelled at a passenger out of impatience."
Pros: "On time, friendly people, airplane not too crowded, vegetarian food was good, luggage unloaded quickly so little waiting upon arrival in Taiwan."
Cons: "Carry on luggage weighed 9 Kg and they told me I had to remove some things. Suitcase was standard carry-on size, fit well into the display frame. I had plenty of room in the two checked in bags but they had already been processed and moved out on the conveyer belt. Never heard of such as small allowance for carry-on luggage, at least on Delta, United and the other airlines I generally fly. My impression was that this rule was not much enforced since I saw many carry-on bags bigger than mine and judging by the effort I saw when people put them overhead, they likely were heavier than mine."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The attendants were very good on the flight and they made it worthwhile to fly there..."
Cons: "The customer service guy was not professional at all...also he was very back stabbing in his dealing with the requests...cause there were many open seats in premium economy and he claimed there were none...very bad attitude..."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly, very little patience. Overall just the way they served us as passages. Had better crew service in other flights"
Cons: "Something must be done about how far a person can recline their seats. I'm a '6 with long legs, the flight to Taipei was 13 hours. The guy in front of me reclined his seat all the way down. Flight crew was helpless."
Pros: "Like the staff on board. Very nice."
Cons: "Too hot! No individual air vents!! Need that on those planes. Also could have had better leg room Could have been nice to upgrade to economy plus even at the last minute Line at boarding was horrible. Very long and 2hr wait. Almost missed plane trying to get to security even after showing up 2 hrs before flight"
Pros: "The food was pretty good , I sat in premium economy, a far better enjoyable ride to regular economy so paying the a few extra hundred bucks help make a long flight tolerable. Oh yea the plane was nice it was the Airbus 300-777 I believe, also this was my first time flying with China Airline and overall it was a good experience ."
Cons: "The stewardess' could of been a bit nicer and a little more attentive . They were just a few screws shy of being robots not the whole crew but most of them from what I've seen. If you didn't speak chinese it was hard to understand the announcements over the intercom from most of the crew in english, but hey what do you expect it's a chinese airliner. Other than that it was a decent ride."
Pros: "Seat, service, entertainment."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating is fit only for the wee people"
Pros: "Crew and flight where amazing. Thank you"
Pros: "The crews are always awesome. The food great especially since they always have cherry juice, my favorite!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and then seemed rushed at call Last Call. Also the ear phone jack was a double that even the TA ones didn't quite fit. Glad it was an overnight flight and slept most of the way."
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable.."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. Very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food is not that great. They served a beef dish as the second meal without a non-meat alternative. Seats are pretty tight and the movie selection was not that great, although they offered dozens of options so it could just be my taste in movies."
Cons: "Every stage took way too long. An hour to check in. and an hour to pass security. And the flight was obviously late."
Cons: "the flight delay the trip was unconfortable"
Pros: "Good Food. Polite treatment of Customers. Good Luggage allowance."
Pros: "Too many security checkpoints were annoying, but they were good when you follow the rules of what to carry and what not to carry. I also liked that this much security doesn’t allow easy access to the US."
Cons: "The airplane food was terrible. Extremely disappointed. It’s sad to see high quality ingredients be used in such terrible tasting meals."
Pros: "Not too long of a flight. Clean toilets and nice smelling soap and lotion. Decent entertainment selection."
Pros: "The food was nice, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Flight attendants never come back on my query, even after asking to 2 crews"
Cons: "Same problem as the first segment (see above)"
Cons: "I picked a window seat very early on through a phone call to a Turkish Airline agent in the USA, but when I checked in online, the seat assigned to me was gone and I was put in a middle seat while there were many other seats available. This erasure of the record and random seat assignment nullify the effort on the part of the passenger (making a call is not a trivial act these days because of the long waits) and generate uncertainty in the minds of the travellers. Hope you can improve on this point. That will make an even better impression on the passengers."
Cons: "Seat adjustments were not working on both seats in the Houston- Istanbul segment!!"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was horrible not friendly poor service"
Cons: "Flights were delayed for 24 hours!!!! Do not take this airlines. Inside the airport they can't even speak English. They are rude and raciest. No wheelchair were provided for the old people."
Pros: "The food was such a treat! Fresh and delicious. Bathrooms very clean for such a large flight"
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management. No care for customers."
Pros: "Stewards and stewardesses were friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "They stole Items from my bag"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "9 hours layover in Istanbul was too long ."
Pros: "A much nicer 777 on this leg."
Cons: "The lounge at IST is overcrowded and lacks sufficient showering facilities. There was leftover food everywhere that the overworked staff tried, in vain, to keep up with."
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"
Cons: "Little value for money. Meal, seat.. below expectations of premium economy"
Pros: "Great experience for my first international flight."
Pros: "This was one of those flights where everything was easy. Boarding was on time, relaxed. In fact, everyone was relaxed. We were ready to fly early, passengers spread out in the empty plane with lots of pillows and blankets, food was given immediately to accommodate passengers who were fasting for Ramadan. The screens worked well, lots of game and movie options. Only problem... No gin and tonic! In fact, no alcohol at all on this route."
Pros: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to delayed flight coming into Muscat."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines did not transfer my bag. I am still waiting to find out if it has been routed to MLX."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."
Pros: "Loved the service, comfort, entertainment, etc. All of this was top notch and the 13 hour flight went by very quickly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare. I blame my country more than the airline for the new security procedures needed but I literally went through 4 security checkpoints to get on the plane. Not only that, I had to give up my iPad and my $4000 camera to checked luggage at the gate (not my luggage but theirs). Again...not the airlines fault but it was an absolute cluster F...."
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: "The seats seemed further apart, thus more leg room for my long legs. I was lucky to have all 3 seats so I could lie down and get some much needed sleep. New seats seem flatter and more comfortable to lie upon if one is lucky. Crew very personable and helpful"
Cons: "I had FOUR TKA flights in my travels to and from Madagascar last month. Nearly EVERY seat I tried did NOT recline, nor could crew fix any! Most unpleasant to sit for 13 hrs. behind large man whose seat did reclione and mine could not. 2 yrs. ago I flew to Niger on TKA and I found the food better back then. Please keep the delicious Turkish food I fear a down grading for economical reasons. Don't do it."
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."
Pros: "newest airbus aircraft with good entertainment system. touch panel worked well. duty free shops at ataturk was great. wide range of choices."
Cons: "had to take a bus trip to a plane. while outside was very windy and cold."
Pros: "Giving the kids a gift"
Cons: "Worker the didn't smile and not helping very well and getting angry when I asked for help or even they didn't know how to serve people. Airline to bad 2 airlines I go with them is very hot inside. Having bad AC. Thanks"
Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the entertainment"
Pros: "Standard business seats for short distance. Roomy seats ( business class) . Good service with breakfast."
Cons: "No entertainment system in seat"
Cons: "No TV's, but ok it was a short flight."
Pros: "The food was good for an airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "It was a long flight in coach."
Cons: "There wasa cue 100 m before the gate at Istanbul Airport. The cue became a crowd ahead 4 gates, everybody nervous, pushing, no order, late for boarding, no information. Never seen such nervous crowd."
Cons: "We travel very frequently and each time the food same (meatballs) And the air conditining is terrible."
Pros: "The service was great non stop and the goodies for the kids was amazing."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Nice onboard entertainment system"
Cons: "Extremely rude flight attendants. Did not care at all for customer service. Do not expect western standard service ! Service is 3rd world."
Pros: "The food was good, the flight attendants were mostly friendly and normal."
Cons: "While the flight attendants and crew inside the airplane were all friendly and nice , I can't say that for the employees inside the airport!!! They are the WORST employees I've ever seen! Multiple times, when I was trying to ask for help, they barely made eye contact or rudely ignored me! I was shocked! Never have I ever seen airport employees act so rude! One girl even was half asleep when I went up to her to ask for directions. She just pointed to the direction and didn't even look at me or say anything ! Never again will I fly with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "In general I like all the comfort that offers Turkis Airlines to their customers."
Cons: "There are some employees there are not so kind. When ever a customer request for assistance."
Cons: "Security going from venice to Istanbul then israel could have been better"
Cons: "flight left about 11 pm, after dinner service was over the crew never offered water/juice at all until breakfast was served, hard to stay hydrated!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late by over 2 hours and we missed our onward flight to San Francisco. At Istanbul, Ataturk Airport, Turkish Airline did not provide a Visa although they gave hotel and boarding passes for next days flight. At Istanbul, Ataturk airport it was a nightmare for us, as senior citizens. Why should we buy the Visa when the flight was delayed which is no fault of ours. Of the 4 automatic e-visa machines onlyEv 1 was working and there was a long queue. In between the machine stopped working for a long time and no one was there to assist or restart. They gave our boarding passes for the next days flight and their responsibility was over. We had to wait for over an hour to get the hotel. Overall it was a bad experience."
