Excellent experience. On board chef. Overall will definitely fly Turkish again.
The bathroom were very clean, crews were very courteous, vegetarian food was good. Only issue was legroom. I will travel again by Turkish Airlines. It was the very first time travel by the airlines
Turkish airline crew did not give us the boarding passes to our entire trip and we have run around in Istanbul to get the remaining boarding pass and no friendly crew. Prefer not to get on this airway next time.
What an awful experience flying Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Miami. The crew were rude, unresponsive, and my food was raw and cold. I did not even eat in business class. I will not be flying Turkish Airlines again.
My experience with Turkish airlines has very disappointing. The crew members were not polite during the flight, I had kindly requested for a cup of water, three times! But I had not received a single cup, I will not be flying Turkish airlines again.
I got confused about flight time and day missed my flight and rescheduled it for another day they charged me again $260. Even I tried to call the airline 4 hours before nobody answered me . I don’t have time now to fight this case but I think it’s not fair…
Cons: "everything...terrible airline"
Pros: "Both friendly and professional"
Cons: "All is perfect! They couldn’t be better"
Cons: "I loved everything about Turkish Airlines. Their food is one of the best! You can eat it all and actually tastes good! The level of individual service, unbiased service, is amazing. The crew is polite, well kept, and dare I say very good looking. All my flights with them departed and arrived as scheduled, always!"
Cons: "the wait for 9 hours at the airport is horrible with the airport being bad and no place to relax"
Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"
Pros: "Boarding couldn’t be easier. The crew is very attentive and nice!"
Pros: "I would recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone. Excellent food and personnel"
Pros: "excellent crew work"
Pros: "Screan for every passenger to play"
Pros: "Excellent service. Even the food was great :-). The bathroom cream and parfume were a nice touch. Nice hot towels, Nice touch to provide a menu! Check-in was a breeze"
Cons: "Total chaos during boarding..no organization"
Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"
Pros: "Food & Wine"
Cons: "10hrs of screaming kids in row 12! Ta RDG"
Pros: "Quick boarding , the crew was awesome and very helpful. Great service all around"
Cons: "The flight was delayed but they couldn't tell us how late it was , but thanks to Kayak knew it was 40 mins delayed."
Pros: "All of it best flying experience to date"
Cons: "Did not like the long connection to Rome from Istanbul. Otherwise the accommodations were good and clean, and the crew friendly."
Pros: "The crew in the flight is amazing! Very attentive"
Cons: "The Tel Aviv airport check in is a nightmare!! We were there 3 hours ahead of our flight and the line would not move. Finally made it to the front 20 min before our flight!!! The people in the check in bags did not care if we missed our flight, was very rude and sloooooowwww!!! I have been to many airports and this is by far the worst! I had to run to my gate and ran into another check where they let me pass bc my flight was about to close! Made it 2 minutes before the bus left! Nightmare!!!"
Cons: "We were flown by AnadoluJet which is a fully owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines. We were notified of that change until checking in time. The seats weren't comfortable and leg space was too small. The food was poor. A chess sandwich and nothing else."
Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."
Cons: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Boarding ontime and hospital crew. I appreciate and big thanks to the transfer desk at Istanbul."
Cons: "I was about to loose my walker which I was supposed to receive when I get from the aircraft in Istanbul but the lady at the transfer desk helped me find it. After I bought the ticket it was offered 24 hours later at very much Lowe price ( 25%less than what I paid for). I contacted the Turkish airlines but they never give me any credit or compensation."
Pros: "Great food, comfortable seats, Caring staff, Good TV quality and programs."
Pros: "Service by the onboard crew was flawless. Food was excellent, and fully reclining seats in Business Class made a 13+ hour flight very comfortable."
Pros: "I liked the space I had in my seat."
Cons: "Being surrounded by 8-10 babies who were consistently crying, being delayed almost an hour, my TV didn't work, and the food was terribly bad more so than usual."
Pros: "Please give food preferences while booking ticket"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I haven't been informed about it AT ALL, only when I arrived to the airport. At the Turkish desk, they didn't manage to book me on another flight, so I had to purchase extra two tickets for approx. $600 from two different airline companies. BAD! BAD! BAD! From both Kayak and Turkshit airlines!"
Pros: "For a short flight, it was good. The seats were a bit bigger, and the crew was nicer. The food was ok."
Cons: "Again some attitude from flight attendants. The food is average but again subpar compared to previous flights with Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Seat reclined more than some. The food was really good!"
Cons: "No lemonade. There were a lot of steps of security at the gate."
Pros: "The best flight ever!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The entertainment package was good."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Very dry. Warm at best. The temperature of the cabin was too warm. Passengers were fanning themselves to try to cool down. Water should have been offered more frequently. The crew was noisy as they passed through the aisles, making it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "I liked the movie choices"
Cons: "The second pasta dish with red sauce gave me food poisoning. I threw up on the plane, at the airport, 9' the way home, and when I was at home. I had to miss work the next day due to your food. Also, there was not enough trash collection service"
Pros: "Crews were friendly, on time take of and arrival. food was good"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight. The meals were relatively tasty, and the in-flight entertainment was fun."
Cons: "Having been impressed on recent overseas flight using Turkish Airlines, I thought the standards they had previously practiced would have been implemented. Unfortunately, there were several customer service disappointments, from forgetting to include dessert with my and my daughter's meals to being made to wait nearly an hour for the interactive screen to be reset. And not a sincere apology or effort to resolve the problem."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the entertaiment was very poor..there wasn't at all audio - music or whatever the landing was harsh the boarding was late"
Cons: "The Kate arrival at the final destination."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "The security at the Turkish airport. There were very long lines, people pushing each other, screaming. Security put some extra stamps for particular people randomly. There were three women from the same country with the same type of passport who one of them happened to be pregnant. They put extra stamp on her passport. When I asked one of the security why her he said it was random and it was American procedure. The woman started screaming after she was checked twice more and they started to use a detector on her belly. It was all crazy when another family was checked and the security decided that the three kids were okay but the parents weren't. The security told the parents to separate themselves from the kids for double checking. The father started screaming as well. It was all horrible."
Pros: "The airline staff were professional and welcoming. The airplane was comfortable relatively speaking."
Cons: "From New York to Turkey, my connecting flight left before we arrived which made me almost a day late in reaching Cairo; big inconvience. They need to do a better job with timing connecting flights. Turkey to New York, the flight went smooth"
Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"
Pros: "lots of leg room good food"
Pros: "The overall service is excellent. Their culinary selection is superb with their only rival, in my opinion, coming from Kenya Airways."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was operated by United Airlines. Coach seating was uncomfortable after a couple hours despite moving around regularly."
Pros: "Lufthansa always great. Comfortable seats, good and safe service."
Pros: "The flight crew & the flight itself was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours. Not only did I miss my connecting flight, but I also missed my rescheduled flight. I had to wait another 7 hours in the airport waiting for a flight. And due to this I missed an important meeting."
Cons: "Late, missed connection"
Pros: "Great crew, food, entertainment and drinks."
Cons: "Only thing that could be improved is comfort. They provide a small pillow and blanket, but even with those, it is very difficult to sleep."
Cons: "On our layover in Munich, we were at our gate, then noticed about 30 minutes prior to boarding that they’d moved us to another gate quite far away, so we hurried to the new gate, only to discover the change was an error, and we had to run back to our original gate. Made it, but annoyed."
Pros: "Large entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort less than desirable. Not enough sitting space. Also my luggage was left behind in Munich."
Cons: "The problem is with KAYAK. KAYAK booked us a carrier light ticket and failed to inform us at the time of the booking that it was a tariff without checked in baggage that was being offered. Fortunately, LUFTHANSA informed us of this fact at checkin and we purchased carriage with checked in baggage. This makes me wary of buying tickets through KAYAK in the future."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times and we were kept waiting at the gate without knowing when exactly we will leave."
Pros: "The efficiency and kindness of the flight attendants made the trip enjoyable. The water service really helped with dehydration. Also, the food was EXCELLENT, which you don't often hear on a flight. My seat was comfortable and the movie and television selections was great. Will ABSOLUTELY fly with them again!"
Pros: "Flight Delayed from EWR. But the connecting flight to mumbai was not allowed to boarded. Since the gate closed even though the flight was still there. On top of it, the flight that was provided as an alternative was again with a stopover, so now, we had two stop over and extra 14 hours of layover time. Did not offer hotel stay or transit visa. was stuck in airport. Very much disappointed with Lufthansa. Will never take this flight nor will allow my friends and family to take one ever again."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew was excellent! Very impressed"
Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."
Pros: "Just fine."
Cons: "My eyes got so dry that I couldn't see very well for a few hours after landing, everything was hazy and glowing, like I had a film on my eyes. I've been on way longer flights before and I've never experienced this, it was scary."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pros: "They boarded back of aircraft first. They gave wine on demand. They were smiling and helpful and greeted us on entry and exit. The little things matter!"
Cons: "It was difficult to fall asleep in the seats. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "Screen monitor and flight map"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and it was kinda cramped"
Pros: "Excellent staff and organized service. Entertainment syst m standard but worked well without problems."

Pros: "Clean plan, attentive attendants, flight was delayed 15 minutes but notified us promptly."
Pros: "Seat comfort, easy of boarding."
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, we all had a bottle of water at our seats, we were immediately served drinks and snacks, the meals were really nice (haven't had this in years). Plane crew were friendly and helpful. Kids loved the entertainment selection - it kept them occupied throughout the flight in spite of their young age (3yrs and 5 yrs)."
Cons: "Baby kept most of the cabin up for three hours of a six-and-half hour flight. I know this isn't Lufthansa's fault, but they did little to help. Also, business class seats are too hard!"
Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"
Pros: "Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "Nothing to write ."
Pros: "The crew/ service was great & clean bathrooms on the flight"
Cons: "Terrible food quality. Zero leg space. The Newark terminal is ancient & fire alarm went off for over 20min before boarding."
Pros: "The convenience of an early arrival time in Frankfurt to catch another connecting flight to my final destination"
Cons: "Lufthansa was GROSSLY late to depart,for no apparent reason, causing me to miss my connection! Lufthansa then arranged for the cheapest and LATEST flight available as an alternate connection causing me to miss a very important family event.. Very disappointed.."
Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"
Pros: "Flight was on time and uneventful. Plane was a bit cool and most passengers were required to put their jackets back on. No complaints otherwise."
Cons: "Newark is not my preferred airport. We had to leave secure area between flights. Upon reentry, security stations were undermanned and wait times were long."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "Wine was nice. Great selection of movies. The crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Food was a bit bland. And there was no salt or pepper to be found."
Cons: "Seats were beyond uncomfortable unless someone was shorter than 5 feet tall. Zero amenities. I know it was the economy section but our 4 tickets were close to $6000.00. A few perks would have been appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, I waited on the service center line for over 3 hours and in the end had to take a 8hr train ride in order to get to not completly miss my sailing trip. I arrivd to my boat 10hrs late when I was scheduled to take a 1.5hr flight and would have arrived 5 hours early."
Pros: "Such a nice plane. So clean and new and professional staff."
Cons: "Boarding a little disorganized. But it was the airports fault I think."
Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."
Pros: "Great entertainment package. IFE was great, large screen, with a variety of choices. Lavatories are very spacious on A340-600 (lower deck)"
Cons: "The amount of space at the rear of the aircraft is incredibly limited. I was sitting in row 57 and due to the narrowing of the fuselage toward the back, the seats are narrower, some without arm rests and people going to the back of the aircraft keep bumping into seated passengers. Leg room as incredibly limited. This is not acceptable for a major airline. The terminal at Newark is rather old and not the cleanest. Due to the lack of clear communication, most passenger were confused at to the order of boarding."
Pros: "I was bumped up to Economy Plus which gave me lots of leg room on a half empty flight. New plane was great"
Cons: "You lost my baggage! I checked it over to domestic in Newark, but despite the 3.5 hour turnaround time you still managed to leave my bags, and those of several other people on my flight to CVG, in Newark"
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was easy, transfer in Munich very manageable"
Cons: "The seats are unusually narrow and there is no place to put your book and iPad in the seat pocket in front of you. Also, very unremarkable service"
Pros: "it was much more comfortable on the second part of the flight"
Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
Pros: "we were treated like royalty"
Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."
Pros: "Comfy new seats Plenty to watch on the free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Liked all"
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work part of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "The in-flight crew was nice and accommodating, to be expected after the delay. The entertainment system had many movies that were neither dubbed into nor subtitled in English or any other language I understood (such as Goodbye, Lenin, a film I love and have seen with subtitles). The gluten-free meal was bland, perhaps to be expected but as it was my first time ordering one, I wouldn't have known what to expect."
Cons: "Worst of all was the cold, unconcerned manner of a young woman who did most of the attending the crowd of delayed passengers at the counter. I don't ask for abject deference, but she seemed unmoved by our plight and was cold bordering on unpleasant when dealing with different passengers' delay dilemmas. This young woman was American of African descent; for the record, I am as well, which made me think she just took a dislike to me, but she didn't appear to be much nicer to anyone else and just could not be bothered in the midst of the nearly three-hour delay, a major hassle for everyone including the airline. For what it's worth, her name starts with an N. (I didn't have my contacts on) Another major fail was the Lufthansa crew's assurance ahead of the flight that we would be rebooked on later flights after missing our connections. This promise was made rather breezily; clearly those making it in New York didn't have to deal with the business end of a tired, disgruntled crowd trying to cope with the fallout of missed connections. Once we got to Frankfurt, there was one lady holding a sign aloft; the sign bore the names of presumably first or business class passengers who would be shuttled to their new gates. That lady impatiently waved people from the steerage (aka economy) mob away and towards three overwhelmed Lufthansa agents helping people locate their new flights and gates. The gentleman who helped me sent me, and, I'm guessing, quite a few of my hapless fellow travellers, to gate A13 to collect my new boarding pass. Not knowing the airport at all, I followed a set of signs that took me through a monorail to an access area that - surprise! - I could not enter with my outdated boarding pass. Finally an airport official helped the group of A13-bound passengers to the Lufthansa check-in counter, where yet another Lufthansa agent disappointed in his dealing of the situation. Had I not stated that I refused to queue up or to countenance my long-suffering fellow passengers doing so, he would have had us wait in line, including one young woman about to miss a second flight. The agent at the desk was very friendly, but all in all I found the airline's responsiveness to the evolving situations of its steerage passengers (a significant chunk of its income) a great disappointment. I don't expect I'll give the airline a second chance. There's too much good service to be had from Arabian Gulf-based airlines at comparable fares."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Pros: "Keep it up with great services. !! Thank you!"
Pros: "Was on time! Not croweded!"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. Missed the connection flight."
Pros: "calming environment, finnish style"
Cons: "on the flight to new york i got a game sandwich. i like that. brining finnish culture to us. but on the way from new york to helsinki i got a boring bagel."
Cons: "The plane landed much later than expected, and I missed my connecting flight to Moscow. While I was given another boarding pass, I had to have another layover in St. Petersburg, and fly to Moscow from there. The flight turned out to be much longer, and much more exhausting. My overall experience was unpleasant."
Pros: "Food was all right because the flight didn't depart from Finland and catering was from a non-Finnish supplier. Hurrah!"
Cons: "Stewardesses announced that only chicken is available, regardless of any special meal requests (vegetarian etc..). Eventually special meals were located, but not before passengers specifically demanding for them. WTF. Finnair generously pours you a half an glass of wine with meal, for anything more you have to pay for. Supposedly you can buy snacks with money, but there were no menus or pricelists to be found in the seat pockets. Touchscreen functions were barely working on my entertainment screen, the remote control didn't work altogether. WIFI didn't work at all."
Cons: "We missed are connecting flight"
Cons: "Late change gate number. Automatic info-terminal can't read my boarding pass. Not possibility enter flight number ( AY6 - only digits, no letters) Please make WiFi low speed free. Please be atention: more than half passengers russian - there no any muvy russian audio or subtitle on TV Don't show fly with short (30min) transfering"
Pros: "I liked service very much."
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Cons: "Usually, in the morning, a light breakfast is served. This time, there was none."
Pros: "I liked everything. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "Not that I didn't like, only some comments: Flight was 40 min late at arrival due to delayed start from JFK, the plane had to wait on runway before take-off. Not a problem for me as HEL was my final destination."
Cons: "I wish I had known this was an American Airlines flight. They're the worst. Delays all the time (including this flight), crew who couldn't care less, uncomfortable seats, general mediocrity. Next time tell your consumers what you're getting into!"
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Cons: "American Airlines charged me 100.00 dollars for 1 extra luggage, ridiculous! !!!! Also we took off 1 hour late without any notice..... Flight to Europe with AA sucks..."
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Very cramped"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Pros: "Power in every seat. Great headphones. Solid in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "It was delayed uncomfortable and terrible service"
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Pros: "Lenght of flight"
Cons: "Babies crying :("
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were noisy, walking back and forth, so it was hard to rest, more like stomping. Was not pleased with flight attendant who served me, was kinda cocky and not friendly, which spoiled the customer service experience. Not enough leg room, cramped. Wish they had decaf tea. Other than that we arrived safely, so I'm very appreciative."
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Crew was generally friendly. Leg room in coach was ok. The price was good."
Cons: "Kayak sent misleading check in announcements. Namely, telling us to check in with Finnair, where it would not let us check in on line and no one answered the phone. We ultimately checked in with American, which was operating the flight. Not a customer friendly process. American should be embarrassed to serve meals. We think people will eat the gruel because they paid for it. No choice of entertainment. How 1990s. If this is the new American Airlines Lord help us."
Pros: "Smooth flight given the tough turbulence."
Cons: "American Airlines caterers do not stock Tea on flight to London, UK (major up-roar). Staff was pretty grouchy."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."
Pros: "Liked the upgrade seat"
Cons: "Food was aweful both the dinner and the breakfast the following morning ."
Pros: "Got a very nice vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Cons: "Finnai leased this plane from EuroAtlantic. The seats were uncomfortable, entertainment system didn't work, crew was careless... It was a light from horrow! Plane was at least 20 years old!"
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "Great flight. Check in had to be done manually but the agents were plentiful and it was quick and easy. Great movie selection on the flight and the chicken and rice tasted great as well. Would recommend this airline."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Pros: "No one was traveling, airport calm, preTSE always nice This wasa codeshare--actuallyAA"
Cons: "no comp,lints"
Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."
Cons: "I flew American not finnair. Very confusing. I paid 65$ for a better seat. It was further forward but not worth the money and the others around me I don't think they paid extra. No movies. Couldn't see the screen."
Cons: "Small seats and no in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment on flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was very unorganized, no lines people were cutting each other, planes are old and dirty. Food and service was just ok."
Pros: "The entertainment was really up to date and easily accessible"
Cons: "My flight was delayed but I was able to catch my connection flight. (After running through the Madrid airport). Then when I arrived in Berlin I come to find out my bags were still in Madrid."
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Apparently something was wrong with the plane. And then we waited for a mani tenancy log to get signed. Typical American Airlines garbage."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the ease of boarding and how smooth the flight went. The airline crew was friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "I wish that I was informed ahead of time that SAS GO LITE flights do not include check-in baggage. I ended up paying $109 instead of $60 because I was unaware that the fees change the day of departure. This upset me."
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: "On time. Arrive early. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "More meal options. Only chicken for dinner. I’m vegetarian."
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Pros: "My flight has been cancelled"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
Pros: "Great food and service as always"
Pros: "The airplane clean ,Food good etc."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Copenhagen to Geneva since flight from Newark left over an hour late.. They booked me on a flight to Zurich and then to Geneva. Had a connection to France booked separately that I had to move."
Pros: "Plane seemed new and modern. Friendly staff, attentive."
Cons: "Only one side of my headphones worked, seats not very comfortable."
Pros: "Great legroom for premium seats. Even though not an emergency exit, bags need to go up, which doesn’t make sense at all."
Cons: "Seats itself uncomfortable for long flights. Boarding process could be better."
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: "Very accommodating crew"
Cons: "I had a middle seat."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and Newark airport is very inconvenient. No signs to terminal B and the sky train with the compartment system is not very functional. I am tall person and sitting in the middle of the middle row was very inconvenient wilh not enough leg space."
Pros: "Efficient crew, food served at proper temperatures Good movie selections"
Cons: "My seat could/would not recline, passenger in front of me had his seat in recline for most of flight. it was a long uncomfortable flight."
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: "Efficient processing of passengers onto aircraft."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight from Newark to Copenhagen was on new aircraft A340-300 I believe, it was very nice and comfortable even in coach as long as you have a compact body."
Cons: "That my Silver Star Alliance status got me nothing with SAS, no early boarding, no ability to select a seat until 24 hours before without paying an extra cost, if you wanted a beer you had to pay, this is a no frills airline now, pay as you go."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled the morning of."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "Nice TV's. Good selection"
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude to English speakers."
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"
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Cons: "We were unaware of the need to buy an infant ticket on international flights. When we checked in to our SAS flight in Newark, we were given a boarding pass for our infant without any heads up about the issue. We also got help with ordering bassinet from the gate agent, all without anything surfaced. It wasn't until we were boarding that we learned that we needed to buy a ticket and pay $400+ and nearly didn't make the flight. Can someone follow up now, as we need to make sure this issue has now been resolved for our return flight to SFO on Thursday July 6th"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
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."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
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..."
Cons: "They changed departure gate, we sat at wrong gate for most time"
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
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"
Pros: "We were within a reasonable range of on time arriving, although we were delayed 30 minutes at the start due to fueling issues. Crew was average: no problems, no extraordinary acts of kindness. Great selection of movies to watch onboard."
Cons: "Tight seats, lousy food, even for airplane food."
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."
Cons: "Nothing! This was one of my best flights ever."
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: "It was great! Thank you!"
Everything good except comfort of seat.
Due to terminal renovations, there was inadequate seating. Couldn’t understand the gate agents announcements with her mask on. Could use more legroom in seats
Got passed over during the first drink service. Second service was more agreeable. Passengers are allowed to prop their feet up on the backs of the seats in front of them and to play their devices without headphones so everyone has to listen to it?For 4 hours. Why does this go unchecked? Is the comfort of a single passenger more important than all the others? I normally have nothing but good things to say about Air France but they missed the mark today by a wide margin.
Wrong advice was given by AF counter for the boarding by asking me to exit airport and then enter again , otherwise was ok .
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "More leg room"
Pros: "The crew did its best to make up for the fact that the special meal I ordered was inedible."
Cons: "See previous"
Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"

Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"

Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"

Cons: "Late leaving and arriving."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Cons: "The food is awful The entertainment, i.e. movie selection, is not very good and doesn't change very much. The seats are not comfortable and my chair did not recline."
