Cons: "I would definitely have vegetarian food. 30% of population is vegetarian"
Cons: "Seat legroom"
Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."
Pros: "left on the, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit basic and in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, but on a 2 hour flight not a major problem"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly!"
Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."
Cons: "Ground crew was very poor at communication, no one warned us we would need a visa; we spent hours and hours queuing for what could have been sorted out in advance. Communication was terrible. The flight was delayed due to Pakistan closing air space. Turkish rescheduled but no real help in Istanbul."
Pros: "Great crew, confortable seats, free complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Even though the same plane was used, the Cuban authorities asked passengers bound to Caracas to deboard the plane, pass to transit, to have us waiting an hour to re board. Boarding was a complete chaos. We were not handed headsets, so could not listen to inflight entertainment. Food was not good"
Pros: "Amazing crew, confortable seats, great complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Food was not up to standards, the inflight entertainment does not offer enough film or TV shows, enough variety or latest films"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection in Istanbul and had to spend a day in Turkey before next available flight"
Pros: "Food and plane"
Cons: "IST transit"
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "All was really good"
Cons: "Long lines ( about 40 min) to get into transfer zone at the airport. I guess this is not aircompanu fault, but airport."
Cons: "The crew in Berlin gave me the last seat at the airplane which does not recline. I find this to be very unprofessional especially for some with Gold Status with Star Alliance. In addition, they assured me an aisle seat in the connecting flight, which was not the case, it was a middle seat. I felt cheated by the desk crew in Berlin."
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."
Cons: "Food may become better. Not twice meat, especially not late at night. Give an option for an omelet for example"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "good people /service, good food and comfortable seating nice experience all in all"
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good Turkish food, plenty of movie choices, etc. Overall good."
Cons: "Seating space just too small for tall people: elbow room and front distance (awkward eating with long arms in confined space). But This is standard for most airplanes in economy class."
Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"
Cons: "Stanbul didn’t let my carrier go on board with me saying little big for cabin n lost that bag with my expensive handbags n jewels . Once I got Düsseldorf reported n they said no information regarding that bag in their system . I gave them the tag of that suitcase n waiting for it"
Pros: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"
Cons: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"
Pros: "As always from Turkish Airlines, you get good service even for a relatively short flight. Puts other national carriers to shame."
Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Turkish Airlines and they are exceptional! The crew was very friendly and helpful and their food! It was delicious! They also have a way of making you feel like a first class passenger in economy! Will definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "For a long international travel, there is nothing bad to say. They are superb!"
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "kayak was poop for help for me."
Cons: "The flight from BTV to JKF was cancelled day of departure, within a mere 4 hours of take-off. I only received an email.... This, in turn, caused a domino effect for the remainder of my flights and travel plans. I had to PURCHASE brand new tickets and go through a refunding debacle, not through Kayak but another third party whom actually held the tickets. FIASCO is the word! Kayak did not even recognize the cancellation and continued to try and check me in to flights i was not on. Such a headache.. I will not be using this service in the future"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."
Cons: "Transfer desk in Istanbul is terrible. Poor customer service. It took 6 hours to get transferred from the airport to the hotel."
Pros: "We did not like anything about the flight."
Cons: "We did not like anything about the trip to Houston from Istanbul. To sart with, we were told by Turkish Airline staff to go to the gate more than 1 hour EARLIER than the flight to Houston. Once we arrived at the gate, we were told "I cannot help you with anything about your flight. That is another department" and we to wait our turn and wait for someone to take us down the jetway. We waited for 75 minutes (1.25 hours) until after EVERY OTHER PASSENGER was on board. The flight attendant was unresponsive to us, talked down to my husband and me in a way that was insulting, rude, demeaning and very nasty. When another passenger complained that he did not get the seat that the attendant just changed for him, FOUR flight attendants helped him - one person got on the phone with someone (I don't know who), another went down to his seat to see where he was sitting. Yet another came and tried to explain why they couldn't help and finally a fourth tried to speak with another attendant on board. Whether or not his problem was solved, I don't know, but this was in the middle of our conversation (with only one attendant, I will add), and so his attention was taken away from us and put on him. Our seats were changed from seats closest to the bathroom to the middle of the plane. My husband cannot walk so 14 rows walking was not possible. I will say that finally, it took three volunteers who offered their seats to us to sit near the much needed bathroom. Regarding being seated near the bathrooms, when we asked for an aisle chair (that they told us they had on board) we were told to "stand there. we will get one in around 10 minutes). And, the wheelchair was sent all the way to the BAGGAGE CLAIM and NOT GATE CHECKED, when we arrived in Houston, we can clearly see the frame is bent, the wheels are out of alignment and the brake is also bent out of shape. The wheelchair is a custom made chair just for my husband. We will be sending Turkish Airlines the bill for a new chair if it cannot be repaired. I hope you can see to address these problems. I am not hopeful it is not normally like this for Jews who wear their head coverings. We would welcome a further conversation about our experience in hopes that others do not have the same one we did. Vivian and Henry Blum"
Cons: "I missed my connection in Istanbul and got delayed until the next day. Because I’m a US citizen they couldn’t offer me a hotel room because US citizens can’t get visas there."
Pros: "The crew was good. Loved the mango juice and veg food."
Cons: "The seats are hard. More leg room please. Better entertainment with more recent clicks required. Toilet seat needs to stay upright. The eating tables should be straight. Should be able to recline our seats more."

Cons: "A little rough air, but all was good"
Pros: "That flight was sublime.The 787 business layout excellent,the crew excellent as well as the food and drinks.Again very surprised after previously read bad reviews...."

Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"

Pros: "Good news, the checking in process was so delayed as there were so many people, they made sure all who checked in, got on the plane, no hitches on the lugguages either. I got my lugguage in Singapore."
Cons: "JFK to Singapore through Abu Dhabi. The checking in process at JFK was a mess, it was a full flight. There were many people, trying checking in. Two lines, (1) checking in. (2) checked in, dropping off bags. Some of us who had checked in online was trying to drop off bags only. After waiting 1.5 hours, this line isn't moving at all, while the checking in line was moving. Tried telling the gentlemen in charge who worked there that the checked in line dropping off bagguage was not moving, he didn't really care, they made all kinds of excuses saying other people were waiting, so they were completely clueless as to what was going on. I have never experienced this ever and I fly massively each year. First and last time in Etihad. JFK to Abu Dhabi is a good 13 hour flight. NO SNACKS. SG/BA, or any other airline really has nice sandwishes, ramen, chocolate, cookies, chips. Etihad has NOTHING. Not that I snack but still with a 13 to 14 hour flight, airlines should have something to eat during long flights. Really. Etihad who brands and advertises brilliantly, was extremely disppointing to actually be on the flight."
Cons: "The main meal was ok but that was it. If you can't do food to a standard them dint do it at all. A piece of fruit would have been better"
Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"

Pros: "Comfort in the plane and hospitality from the crew"

Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Cons: "Seat was damaged, not conformed and dirty, like it wasn’t cleand after previous flight. Pillows was used before us. Business calss should be nice"
Pros: "That there was a vegetarian meal on the second leg of my travel. And that the journey is over. Besides that, not much"
Cons: "1 hour delay to begin with. Then trasfer area at Abu Dhabi was utter chaos. While it's suffocatingly crowded, there was no A.C! No vegetarian option for meal on the flight from Brussels to Abu Dhabi. The seats hurt by bottom. One of the worst flight seats ever. All in all, a totally underwhelming experience."
Pros: "Legroom Entertainment Airport onboarding exp"
Cons: "- horrible crew, many crew members were just rude to many passengers. Often rolling their eye and making overt gestures to passenger questions - one crew member just threw the food tray down and it all spilled over another passenger - they also struggle with english and so is hard understanding both ways - abslote the worst food selection and quality in my experience. Better pack your own food from home"

Pros: "They were strict about people changing seats to exit rows without prior permission"
Cons: "Food, cleanliness, boarding, timeliness, both etihad flights were late."
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"

Pros: "As above"
Pros: "The USA immigration at Abu Dhabi is an advantage"

Pros: "SERVICE WAS PERFECT"
Cons: "FOOD WASN'T GOOD"
Pros: "the nice crew- the relative speed of boardinf"
Cons: "compared with Emirates, the movies/Tv choices are very limited and in addition, only available -after take off and stop being available 30 min before landing. very disaappointing compared with emirates when we can start watching content from the minute we are on the plane until the very last minute. also, the plane had very limited space dedicated to stretch legs compared to other A380 from other companies."
Pros: "Staff was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just did not care for the meal that had spicy taste and no meat. Did like the chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans."
Pros: "Great cabin staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Entertainment was unwatchable. In physical pain from poor seating."
Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
