Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "there is little time for lay over in turkey going to Egypt one hours is not enough."
Pros: "Entertainment the most. Movie selection was fairly good for a 3 or so hours flight"
Cons: "The food. Same selection as my flight from the US to Istanbul. Please change menus once in a while. One of the Male flight attendants was not too friendly."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the best"
Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."
Cons: "Boarding by bus - not my favorite way of getting on a plane. Probably not the airlines's fault."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work"
Cons: "As a family it was a big disappointment that we got seated in a different row. The check in person didn’t even made an effort to put us together just suggested that we can ask to switch on a plane. Another big disappointment was food Please bring the food quality back"
Cons: "In Business Class, the seats did not recline all the way to become flat. Other airlines (including Qatar and Etihad) have seats which become flatbeds even in 3 hour long flights. Very disappointed that Turkish does not have that options from IST to ISB. The boarding experience from IAD-IST was excellent...but it was the opposite from IST-ISB."
Pros: "The food is ok as is the entertainment on board."
Cons: "The crew could be nicer and more responsive"
Cons: "Boarding crew were rude and unhelpful. They didn't check IDs which became evident when a passenger complained his passport was missing and the plane had to return to the gate so he could go back into the airport to find his passport. Had it been checked before getting on the plane we could have spared everyone the hour delay. really this was is the worst service ever. Avoid."
Cons: "Food was below expectation No TV or entertainment"
Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, comfortable seat."
Pros: "Almost every things"
Cons: "small plane, noisy! did not like business class. BUt overall ok"
Pros: "I really liked the whole experience and would only highly recommend Turkish airlines"
Pros: "Arrived on time. Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Too crowded Airport."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Pros: "Flight attendant in my section seemed annoyed with everything the entire flight. My interactions with her were all fine, but I saw her get obviously frustrated with multiple customers that weren't doing anything out of the ordinary. The rest of the crew seemed pleasant. Seats were incredibly tight for a ten hour flight. Loved the movie/show selection and the food was on the better end of any airline food I've had."
Cons: "A little turbulence"
Pros: "During 20 hours journey they have served rice for only one time and a little. The food quality and salad was also stale."
Cons: "Their food, quality and characteristics of food."
Pros: "Amenities. Flexible food options if requested ahead online. Bilingual staff."
Cons: "Less legroom than others. Small drink proportions."
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "Ground and air staff"
Cons: "Seats a bit too crowded"
Pros: "the in flight crews were great! Lots of things to watch, nice food and wine."
Cons: "Tight close seats, rather long line at check in."
Pros: "Everything is excellent.They are the best in the area of service."
Cons: "There is no bad thing worth telling regarding turkish airlines flight."
Pros: "I saw their Ad in their inflight magazine, didn't know they were rated #1 6 years in a row. Was pleasantly surprised on how good they were. Comfortable seats, excellent on board service, food better than average, pleasant and professional staff. Try them, you won't be disappointed"
Cons: "How come a Business Class doesn't have sleeping masks? Unbelievable."
Pros: "Food, crew, comfort, not a full flight, enough room for everyone"
Cons: "Plane was one of the old ones but I understand why it was used on small hauls, but it could definitely be upgraded to provide the top of the line service and luxury Turkish is known for and stands for."
Pros: "Flight any crew awesome"
Cons: "Parents who allow a child (not infant) to scream for 2 hours"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance is the worst when we fly with Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. the food was very tasty. i LOVE the little bag with slippers, socks and tooth brush and paste and other amenities."
Cons: "i got lucky and had multiple seats to myself, and it was still tight. i can imagine if i had only one seat i would be in a lot of pain coming off the flight. the bathrooms are very tight too,"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The moms with babies would do with a little help."
Pros: "Turkish Air has some of the best flight attendants in the business. The food is essentially gourmet (hot wrap, in this case), and the pilots are highly skilled."
Cons: "This is not a Turkish Airlines issue, per se, but an airport problem. Ataturk is very spread out and there are far more planes than gates. More often than not, the plane parks way out in the back 40, and shuttle buses take you to a processing point. If you have less than a 2 Hr layover, and you're switching between Domestic and International flights, you will need to walk at top speeds, or run. Passport Control and multiple security checkpoints could easily cause you to miss your flight."
Cons: "Canceled flight"
Pros: "Food, comfort..."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines still my pick for long haul flights. Stand outs are the meals followed by attentive crew. IFE also very extensive"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Pros: "The whole experience was ruined by the missed flights on both sides of the trip. My flight from IST to KHI was missed because my lay-over was only one hour, and my flight from IAD left hour and half late. I had to spend extra 6 hours on IST airport"
Pros: "Flight timing and the crew were excellent"
Pros: "everythings was fine almost"
Cons: "the service serving the food and beaverage, to slow and just once a while,"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class for this leg of my total journey. It was incredibly comfortable experience. The recliner seats with the massage feature add immensely to the overall experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hrs, no explanation given, the ground staff was no where to be found, finally one person showed up and he was not helpful. No formal announcement was made!"
Pros: "Nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed- late to my connection so luggage was lost and I was 3 days without luggage."
Pros: "I have to fly twice a year and I choose only Turkish airline! Best service, crew, comfort and food!"
Cons: "Food, service, comfort"
Pros: "Good food, great crew."
Cons: "Both coming and going my transatlantic flights were delayed. first time to address a mechanical problem with the heating/cooling system of the aircraft (1 hour +) and the return flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours with no explanation."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Free checked bag was nice. Food was very good. Cocktail service was very good."
Cons: "Still a tight space. US to Europe by going several hours out of the way to Istanbul still doesn't make any sense."
Pros: "Service with a smile and very professional. Love the quality of food and entertainment on board."
Cons: "Last minute changes of aircraft that suddenly make what one thought to be an aisle seat a middle seat! Very annoying."
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"
Pros: "Entertainment system, food"
Cons: "Announcements illegible"
"My "virtual" flight was okay. In the real world BA cancelled my trip and refunded my $$ through Kayak before I left and I had to rebook a flight on a different airline through Kayak. I was and am surprised that Kayak thinks I am flying on the cancelled tickets that have been refunded. So my ratings of the trip are completely bogus. I would hope that Kayak would corect the flaw in the computer system that thinks cancelled tickets are still "flying"."
"It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket."
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Cons: "I was not able to make this flight due to many technical difficulties, waiting in lines at the airport for over 4 hours, and having British Airways automatically change my flight booking Gatwick (which is 45 minutes from where this second leg would have been!)."
Pros: "This was a connecting flight from London originating from SFO. There were delays after boarding so we departed later. But we survived."
Pros: "Check in was a breeze, and the food was good!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed d/t engine trouble, & we missed our re-booked connecting flights twice & finally our third flight was only available to a different city than originally planned.. (Newark, NJ instead of JFK) In compensation, we were offered a coffee voucher but had to dead run to catch the next flight. No time for coffee."
Cons: "On a flight to Budapest, budapest airport had issues that forced us to land in Austria. 5 hours later we’ve been completely abandoned in an empty airport while all the other planes that landed paid for their customers transport. It’s 4am, we have not been given food water or a plan as to how we will get to our destination. The plane crew basically told us we are on our own and left. This is straight up cruel, unjust and completely unacceptable considering we paid more than 2000 dollars for these flights"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind"
Cons: "Charge you for even instant coffee, the alla cart way of doing things is taking over the industry. all about making more money"
Cons: "Plane was cold and dirty."
Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Great crew. Smooth flight. Excellent timing."
Cons: "It’s been a while since I’ve seen a load out that old on BA. Almost 1st gen personal IFE. The plan as a whole was fikthy"
Pros: "Shorter flight--OK"
Pros: "I did not order food I liked the new safety Videos"
Pros: "Your teammates, Fatou and Sarah at the check in desk in charles de gaulle made our lives doo easy after a stressful and ling journey. Their kind service and forethought helped us a lot."
Cons: "BA's poor customer service team who don't explain extra baagge charges correctly and don't have the decency to say they were in the wrong for not dealing with my issue correctly ans giving the run around"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "A day before my flight it was already known that it is delayed (how possible...?) and it was delayed. Even though we were on time to board plane to Boston we had to wait for another flight."
Pros: "The crew was really nice overall and the entertainment system was adequate. The main meal was decent too."
Cons: "The flight was late (I was warned online but there was denial at the airport and gate) and further delayed in flight so I missed my connection. I didn't like the pods in business class. I had a forward facing seat at least, which are all by the aisles. They seemed narrow. I didn't sleep (never do). The breakfast was a bit lame. Getting into buses from the plane IS lame. It took a while to get to the terminal."
Cons: "You had to pay for everything and I do mean everything. Even a glass of water. There were no glasses unless you paid for a bottle. If I have a choice I won’t be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Pros: "First international flight. In flight entertainment was fantastic, plenty of new movie titles to view along with music, all complimentary. Staff was hospitable and frequently came by to reduce lighting and offer food and refreshments. I’m about 6’3” so my only complaint was no room in the middle seat but otherwise it was ok. I made it work."
Cons: "Not enough room between the rows for me to adequately stretch my legs out."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Boarding was late with no announcement. Entertainment was limited to none existent."
Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"

Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."
Pros: "The plane was new and everything was up to par."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like other than flying in coach!"
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Cons: "Space for legs"
Pros: "Boarding was exceptionally well-handled. Boarding passess/passports were checked prior to entering the boarding area and seating started when people came into the boarding area so passengers were finltering onto the plane immediately without the first calls for priority passengers."
Cons: "Short flight, not much to notice or complain about."
Pros: "We were lucky we boarded early because i had reserved the seats in Premium economy and had a baby with us. That's the only good part about the journey"
Cons: "Horrible food No USB or charging ports in aircraft. The plane felt like decade old. Crappy seats with shitty monitors, reclining mechanisms Crew kept disturbing us for food when we were sleeping and kept serving us the meal we didn't order. When u hit the call button no answer! Ba missed our bags stroller and car seat. Thanks but no thanks BA. No one at athe counter to answer"

Pros: "Flying on the 380 very smooth"
Cons: "Gate was not available at arrival"
Cons: "Paid extra for seat- seriously? why??? No one else did and there was no extra leg room~ Make it fair for everyone!"
Cons: "Flight crew was very aggressive and casual. Displays are ancient. Seat was broken."
Pros: "The food was quite good."
Cons: "The seat selection process is extortion. After paying thousands of dollars for upgrades, I still couldn't get a seat next to my spouse. Customer service didn't care, crew didn't care, but we cared. We also has to bus out to the plane practically in another city, then sat on the tarmac for 1.5 hours."
Pros: "staff were good"
Cons: "out of date entertainment food"
Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"
Pros: "Didnt travel"
Pros: "Especially a flight attendant...he was in the back of the plane, unfortunately I can't remember his name, he was so very nice , attentive to our needs and wants...what a difference it can make to have staff like him.And in general ell staff staff on board were very courteous and friendly...they were there not just to work, but to be kind and very pleasant."
Cons: "Hummmm I don't know. Liked everything!"
Pros: "Great service, wonderful food. Very little turbulence and about 30 minutes early."
