I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert.

The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."

My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical difficulties"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Great experiencing getting on and off the plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "I have never had a problem with this airlines. This flight was no exception"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"

Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Cons: "Seats way to close together"

Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."

Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"

Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "The food was excelent"

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."

Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"

Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."

Pros: "The only thing to like was for the transatlantic flight they have a pretty nice selection of moves and show to watch."
Cons: "Not enough space to write all the thing wrong here. I will never fly Aer Lingus again."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "We arrived late to Dublin because of weather and we’re going to miss our connection to Leeds so they rerouted us via Manchester but our bags, though tagged “Rush” did not make it on the new flight and we were without them for five days! we still had to get to Leeds so we had to pay for train tickets"

Cons: "The floor plan on Aer lingus website for seating was did not match the actual plane iwe were on so the legroom was not as good as what the website illustrated when we boarded."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "When I checked in, I was asked if I would consider taking a United flt instead of aerlingus. I agreed but the flight had already filled up so the woman checking me in offered to seat me at an exit row. However on check in I realized she gave me someone else’s ticket. It was disappointing. My first f"

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Food alright"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. The flight staff was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good. The plane arrived late, as a result we missed our connecting flight."

Cons: "This was not a British Airways flight. They should have done a better job of communicating that. I wasn't informed until I tried to check in online 24 hours before my flight."

Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Very punctual."

Pros: "Plane, crew"
Cons: "Boarding agent took too long to load the plane which caused a delay which ultimately had us miss our connecting flight Didn't like that Aer Lingus didn't wait for us at Dublin when they knew we were going to be a few minutes late"

Cons: "The plane departed late from DUB in spite of an unusually very weather. It landed 40 minute late in Lyon"

Cons: "We boarded okay but then we had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we actually took off. So arrival into Lyon was late. Also had to buy any food or drink if we wanted anything."

Pros: "Almost everything was good. Friendly crew, easy boarding, safe flight even with lots of air gusts (thanks to the pilots!)."
Cons: "Whatever fare Kayak provided was the worst seat (last row next to bathrooms). I wouldn't book through Kayak again and instead would go through the airline directly."

Pros: "Crew were efficient and courteous. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken and leaned back too far. Audio plug wouldn’t accept two prong headset. Video screen was nonfunctional on flight to Dublin."

Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."

Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."

Pros: "The crew were very professional and courteous"
Cons: "No USB ports and no way to plug in one's personal earbuds. Sounds quality on the airline supplied earbuds was horrible. Gave up on the entertainment offerings and watched movies I had stored on my iPad. And really the worst food I've ever had on a flight."

Cons: "The most uncomfortable plane that I have travelled on. Seat - unbearably uncomfortable. Toilet falling apart, parts of seats falling off."

Pros: "Boarding made sense. They boarded the back of the plane first. Kudos for that."
Cons: "The seat cushions were nonexistent. Less legroom than a mini backseat and no way to upgrade since I purchased on kayak...unless I was willing to pay $4000 more to get premium coach seats. Will not use kayak again."

Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."

Pros: "Goo entertainment on Dulles Dublin sector."
Cons: "It would help if ba would hilight fact that this is a code share with are linguistic. Seat were unbelievably small and had to walk to ends of earth for both the gate in Dulles and Dublin. No free food or drink on Dublin madrid sector but thankfully not full so I could stretch out. New planes on both sectors."

Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."

Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"

Pros: "Staff was very cheery and thoughtful! Made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "No boarding gate was ever given to us, nor available by looking up online. Caused us to almost miss our flight. Very frustrating to be running around and even the information desk couldn't locate our boarding gate! Aircraft also old and worn down."

Pros: "the service was very friendly and the food was very good. Checking in was easy and they were very helpful."
Cons: "the only complaint I have is that on the info page on the screens the maps doesnt work."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "What I didn't like on the transatlantic flight was not available on the Venice flight."

Cons: "Dodgy electronics, had to reset screen in headrest several times and never really worked. Sat 30 + mins in tarmac after landing waiting for a stand."

Cons: "Smell the smoke from outside while boarding or landing. Pay for wine Luggage allowance, NO PERSONAL bag?? Movies not so many options"

Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage did not initially transfer from the first leg of my trip to the second leg of my trip. I received my luggage by the end of the day, but it was somewhat inconvenient to not have a lot of my personal effects for several hours."

Pros: "The service and food was great"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle of the row"

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "They lost one of our two bags and were completely unapologetic about it. We had to cancel our car rental, the location we were planning to drive to where we had a reservation and get a hotel near the airport to wait for them to figure out where in the world the bag is."

Cons: "Added 12 hours to my trip and had to rebook on another airline for the second leg. The crew was unapologetic after sitting on the tarmac for three hours. Terrible airline"

Cons: "You can't get a seat assignment until you check in at the airport. I ended up in the very back row, right in front of the galley for a 7 hour flight. No sleep for me."

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Amsterdam. I wasn't offered any assistance and I had to wait a day to receive my luggage! My flight was an early flight so it,ales not sense why it wasn't brought to the same day"

Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."

Cons: "The call for boarding was hard to hear and disorganized. A very long line had formed and then a group of other people started another line near the beginning of the first line and were just jumping in. No staff members took charge and corrected the second line."

Pros: "Every single crew member on all 4 of my recent Aer Lingus flights, as well as the Aer Lingus staff at Dublin Airport were all very friendly and very helpful with catching our connecting flight. I've never met a collectively nicer group of people and wil definitely fly with Aer Lingus in the future. Food was also great."
Cons: "I didn't like that the arm rests do not extend all the way up. We were lucky enough to not have a full airplane coming home and we couldn't lay down because the arm rests don't stay up."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"

Cons: "Seat 31A: Headphone socket was not working properly, table was broken (didnt keep the food tablet), entertainment system crashed after pausing the movie. check-in baggage was lost during journey and still couldnt get found. Very annoying."

Cons: "Crying baby"

Cons: "The seats were constantly being switched without asking. The online boarding process did not work, so we could not get seats before arriving at the airport."

Pros: "The lady at checkin was very gracious and found seats for all of us together. I was also thankful that she gave us exit row seats"
Cons: "Aer Lingus website is difficult to navigate. Boarding passes do not transfer electronically to my smart phone. Seats are too hard and are therefore uncomfortable. Entertainment screen did not respond to touch very well. Screen crashed twice during the trip. Earphones only worked in one ear and had poor sound quality."

Pros: "Crew!"
Cons: "Seat spaces are so small for long flights. London Helsinki on the back seat was a torture."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived in Lyon early. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't go back."

Pros: "Impressed with food and crew!!"

Pros: "Amazing crew , very accommodating , and friendly , professional, excellent!"
Cons: "Perhaps slightly better food, however choice of liquor & beer was excellent with tremendous service. 5 star service across the board."

Pros: "We flew 1st class. The crew going over was AMAZING!!!!"
Cons: "LHR-ATL first class was awful. My spouse lost her seat to an aircrew member. (I'm very sick and we chose being across from each other for a reason). Boarding on both ends was horribly done. Last minute gate assignments, no crew, delay, boarded after coach. Hard bed, no service, crying baby"

Cons: "Simply everything"

Pros: "Things were pretty smooth."
Cons: "Could have done without the flight delay."

Cons: "BA is the worst airline ever I seen in my life. I will never fly with British Airways again! Never!"

Cons: "Delays at gate while on plane(2hrs), entertainment system non-functional, AC non functional, seat selection lost."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Plane was very old and incredibly hot. Uncomfortable all around. Plane was gross and falling apart. Barely able to sleep due to heat. Turbulent the ENTIRE flight."

Cons: "Delayed again. 3 flights in a row"

Pros: "Customer service was awesome"

Cons: "Ran out of food. Credit card machine didn't work,Crew can't take cash. Lots of shrugs and 'not our fault'. Better service from the low cost carriers. Expected better from ba."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They were late, once we were ready to board the plane it has been changed to another gate due to Brittish delay, so we had to do nother security review. We faced a bad attitude in the countter that was very dissapointing."

Pros: "Very comfortable as the plane was not full!"

Cons: "Old plane,panels falling apart,looked unkempt"

Pros: "Safe landing"
Cons: "Was charged 65 pounds for checking one bag. This was a big news to me. BA claims it was because I booked through Kayak. Would not have booked the flight. Luggage cost is almost superior to flight cost. Forced me to check my overhead luggage. Flight was delayed one hour because we had to go back to gate to rebLANCE WEIGHT"

Pros: "First time we upgraded to Business Class. It was fabulous compared to the cattle car we usually fine in/"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Again rude personnel. Paying for water after flying over 9hrs from USA was not cool."

Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."

Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"

Cons: "Food was terrible and ear plugs hurt and couldn't hear out of them."

Pros: "Our seat in Economy plus was great. We were very comfortable."
Cons: "Two of the restrooms were out of order so there were only two available for Economy plus and Economy."

Cons: "Charged us for food and even soft drinks on an international flight! I haven't experienced nickel and diminig like this on a n Major carrier like this."

Pros: "The crew was perfect and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Limited entertainment options and no wifi available."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crowded seating at back, shaky entertainment tablet, worst plane food (pasta) I have ever eaten."

Cons: "The woman who worked the British Airways desk in Helsinki and checked our bags is not suited for a customer service position. The screens on the British Airways long haul planes are tiny and difficult to operate. A 2,5 h flight where you can't even get water complimentary is appalling. Honestly all of your competitors offer a snack and beverages complimentary even if the flight is only 45 min. The boarding for London to Dallas flight was very confusing and could have been made easier with grouping the boarding instead of tons of people piling up to rush in at once."

Cons: "Tight seats ,almost missed flight due to second security check at heathrow"

Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"

Pros: "Efficiente flight"
Cons: "No movies"

Pros: "I require a wheelchair for getting around the airport. When I first checked in at LHR, they claimed to have no record of my wheelchair request and my seat change, despite my very clear notations of who and when these were made. They did have a record of my paying for one suitcase. The agent at LHR promised to make these corrections so I would not have the same problem when returning to London. Furthermore, to turn this into a humiliating situation, at the gate I was informed that the jetway was broken and they would have to find some other way to get me onboard the plane. I cannot believe that British Airways has no contingency plan for a situation like mine. After many discussions between BA reps and ground crewmen they decided to bring me down in a lift at Gate 34, though my plane was at Gate 32. I was then loaded onto the freight platform of one of those food delivery trucks and driven over to my plane. The truck backed into place and again I hoisted up to the plane. However the plane door was locked and we had to bang on it for them to finally open it. To my great embarrassment I helped down the aisle to my assigned seat, looking back at the curious looks and glares from all those passengers who had no explanation for the delay and humiliating scene. Officially the flight was listed at 28 minutes late, when in reality it was 40 minutes till we taxied away from the gate My return flight from Brussels was little better because the changes that were supposed to have been entered at LHR never were and so I had to go through this whole routine again costing me over one hour in delays. Fortunately I was able to board the flight through the jetway and did not have to be hoisted up again, and delivered like freight. How would you rate these flights. I had problems with every single British Airways flight!!"

Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."

Cons: "It was 1.5 hours late and I didn't even get water"

Pros: "Crew was gracious and professional despite long lines of frustrated passengers. I was very impressed."
Cons: "Meals were tasteless."

Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "like all the other airlines you get nickelled and dimed to death"

Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."

Cons: "Charging money even for a soda. Seriously so cheap."

Pros: "Nothing in specific. But good service and people."
Cons: "The kids crying"

Cons: "Seats on the flight London to Barcelona weren't as comfortable but it's not fair as it's just the model of airplane. Although modern seats just weren't that good to try catch some sleep."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "We booked World plus, extra money, and they put us in the last row against wall where the seats hardly recline. I complained but we were well into our flight when we told the stewardess she did not get back to us regarding changing seats. She came back about 20 minutes laterwith unacceptable seats,far from our overhead and we could not sit together. We declined. My husband had to board early because his foot was in a special brace after recent surgery. They could only move him to a center seat where he would hae to risk someone stepping on his foot. We are 70 years old.We had one small meal on an 8.5 hour flight."

Pros: "Pleasant efficient staff. Flight on time"

Pros: "The staff was friendly. The food was great. There was plenty of entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "nothing the plane got delayed four times with no warning and then got cancelled when we all got lined up at the gate for the plane (we stood in line for 15 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE TOLD US SHIT)"
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane got cancelled after hours of sitting in the airport, I didn't like the lack of communication between British airways staff and (would be) passengers, I didn't like that it would've taken me literally three hours to speak to a representative, and I am going to get a refund. I ended up taking an 80 pound train to London that took two and a half hours, and I expect the airway to pay for that too. This was bullshit and I hate this shirt air line."

Cons: "Lost luggage for 25% of the flight. They say this happens often. spent 3 hours at the airport filing a claim. I hope I see my suit case again"

Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the overall experience was pleasant!"

Pros: "Excellent info provided on why we couldn't exit the plane."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they lost all our luggage"
