Airline reviews

Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"

Pros: "Boarding its took along , food it's bad"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Great service."

Pros: "Everything."

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "Excellent service. Very comfortable business class seat. Arrived early"
Cons: "Boarding & disembarking was via bus & stairs."

Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive especially effective helping a mother with a spoilt screaming child!"
Cons: "The food was very mediocre!"

Pros: "The crews are very friendly and seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "There nothing could have been better cause everything is perfect"

Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"
Cons: "Food can be adjusted to the cuisine of the destination."

Pros: "Crew was good and helpful. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They could have given me an other flight so that I could attend the wedding I was going for. I gotta flight after 12 hours and 10 hours lay-off in Doha. Even if I didn’t get that long layover, I could have been able to attend the wedding."

Cons: "Low cost airline so they charge you for everything. I had to pay $159 to check a bag for a 1.5 hour flight. That nearly doubled the cost of the original ticket. By the time they charge you for everything, you don't save any money. And they even weigh every purse, backpack, handbag, etc. at the gate and start charging customers for carry on. Don't fly with these guys. And because their customers are dissatisfied, all the employees I encountered were rude."

Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."

Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "They are the best"

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Pros: "The crew was FANTASTIC!! SO kind and helpful, and went out of their way the whole flight to assist us with anything and everything we needed! :)"

Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"

Pros: "The staff wad nice"
Cons: "I have requested sea food and I was told that no request was made and they do not serve it any more."

Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"

Pros: "Superb service. Excellent quality of food. Flexible dining time. World’s best business class!"
Cons: "More shower stalls in the business class lounge."

Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Just bathroom in end"

Pros: "Friendly service, and comfortable ride, will gladly fly again"

Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"

Pros: "Qatar has one of the best service in the world"
Cons: "Nothing that I ca th think off"

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"

Cons: "they pot me in another flight"

Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest. Thank you for your kindness and help when I couldn't eat some of the foods on board. Whom can I write an email to so that I can be sure that she gets noticed for her work? Thank you"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"

Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and seemed very accommodating. The flight was on time to leave, or maybe even a few minutes early. The food was very good. Overall it was a very comfortable flight.Oh and the little toiletry bag was a very nice touch. I for sure used the socks in there and the toothbrush was bonus."
Cons: "I didn't have any issues on this flight. Everything was great for me."

Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."

Cons: "They changed my seats twice and it was near the bathrooms and I hated it. They refuse to give me a better place when I requested. I didn't choose the seats they put me in and the crews couldn't handle the other passengers attitued and actions. I asked for a below but they didn't bring it to me."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."

Pros: "Good leg space and entertainment options"
Cons: "I was eligible for a complimentary hotel for my connection. However, in none of my correspondence was mentioned that I'm supposed to request a hotel ahead of departure. No emails from Kayak and neither Emirates. This is extremely disappointing and unnecessarily costly"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Flight was on time. Seats were good per economy class"
Cons: "Food could have been better"

Pros: "Yes crew was good. But the seats being economy, were very congested having very less leg space."
Cons: "Can't say."

Cons: "Evrything was fantastic"

Pros: "amazing customer service. great seats and interior. well on schedule."
Cons: "no window seats were available just some time after check in was open(at least when i got notification). Got airplane ears- pressure issue. This has never happened to me before."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Food is good."
Cons: "Seats could have worked well. Infotainment could be better"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 6 hours while we are in the plane, on top of my 13 hour flight"
Cons: "letting people know that flight will be delayed ahead of time"

Pros: "Leg room was excellent I even enjoyed the meals nice to have real cutlery rather than plastic Very efficient and smooth boarding Return of checked luggage upon arrival was prompt and efficient Flight attendants were super conscientious, friendly and VERY professional"
Cons: "Everything was GREAT"

Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"

Pros: "The entertainment system was excellent and the free WiFi was good. The food was good, it was a bit more than expected as were the numerous beverages. The service was excellent."
Cons: "The free WiFi was limited to a small amount of data or two hours."

Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, seats in bad shape, screen not working, ......"

Pros: "The comfort and smooth boarding procedure"

Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"

Pros: "departure on time, seat comfort, service okay at time when I expect to have it."
Cons: "Departure and arrival at almost mid night which difficult for reach home at night, kids can't wait at airport."

Cons: "I paid extra to have an exit row for this long flight. Just before taxiing a man moved seats into the exit row seat next to me (not paying for it like I had) and was intrusive and sprawling out over into my space the entire very long flight. I am extremely unhappy about this and the willingness to allow him to move seats that I had to pay extra for and then left me zero comfort on the flight."

Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I felt very pampered!"

Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"

Cons: "Shitty boarding like in all India airports"

Pros: "Just a fantastic crew, great airplane the Air Bus much more comfortable than the 777 .."

Cons: "This was a fraudulent charge!!"

Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"

Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"
Cons: "Trash was not picked up frequently enough. By the end of the flight the plane was a pig sty. Also there was no toilet paper in the bathroom at the deprting airport"

Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Pros: "The overall experience was good."
Cons: "The non-veg food option was limited to a prawn dish only which may not be a good option for all. Should have a chicken or goat meat alternative."

Pros: "Arriving at Perth is always a hassle with delayed baggage unloading. Can Emirates engage their own staff to expedite this activity. The Perth baggage handlers are too slow, particularly when on penalty rates on Sundays."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"

Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."

Cons: "Dubai to blre flight was better than IAD to Dubai as there was a chewing gum stuck over the window's edge next to my seat."

Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."

Cons: "The bus ride took over 10 mins. Why are flights to South Asia and other developing countries not given boarding via the bridge? Horribly long bus ride at DXB for flight to DEL."

Pros: "Service was wonderful people very kind enjoying them on the flight was quite beautiful soft and nice wish you good luck ."

Cons: "Emirates flight took me and my mom to Milan(Italy) on issued Dubai Boarding pass."

Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Insufficient vegan option"

Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."

Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Pros: "I like the meals"
Cons: "It is hard to request a window seat"

Pros: "Great service; wonderful crew; best food & entertainment!"

Cons: "Everything was well done and organized."

Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"

Pros: "All no!"
Cons: "Seats are too close!"

Cons: "Food Crew"

Pros: "Too cramped"

Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "Seats were spacious enough"
Cons: "Departed about 40 minutes late without an explanation, then had to take a circuitous route around local thunderstorms which added another 30 minutes, so that we arrived over an hour late. Deplaning was also very slow, such that we cleared the airport at 1:45 AM, rather than 11:35PM as scheduled."

Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"

Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."

Pros: "The crew was polite, caring and friendly towards passengers. I had a pleasant time during the long flight. The food options were good."
Cons: "Cup noodles were not really a good snack idea given the fact that we were sitting in a closed environment. The smell was too much for such a long flight..."

Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. The food was pretty good and the flight was so smooth that I slept for about 10 hours of our 16 hour flight. Can't wait to fly Cathay Pacific the next time I fly to Asia!"

Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."

Pros: "Flight from Toronto to Hong Kong was late departing due to a snow storm. Most on the flight missed connections. Cathay staff were waiting on the jetway with plans for everyone that missed their connection to Sydney. Just impeccable organisation and service."

Pros: "Everything thing worked out well except for the food for my wife. Sitting all the way in the back wasn't that bad because no one was behind us and we could fully recline."

Pros: "The airplaine Service Adequate food and good wines Very good entertainment"

Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, something was dripping on me by the end of the flight, could have been condensation? The passenger behind me had his shoes off the entire flight and put his feet in the space beside me near the window. His feet smelt like vinegar and sweaty socks. The passenger beside me was overweight and he spilled into my seat partially. All of this did not make for a comfortable flight but thankfully it wasn't too long."

Pros: "Business class service was the best I've ever experienced from any carrier."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"

Pros: "I liked the smothered flight and the management of time that the crew implemented"
Cons: "The food was almost not edible . I would feel guilty feeding it to my dog"

Pros: "Surprisingly the legspace was good enough. I am a 6 footer and i did not have much of a problem with leg space. With respect to entertainment , there were some good latest movies. The food and snacks were good."
Cons: "The crew needs to be little more polite. Except one girl rest of them , i felt was not as polite as they should be. The moat important thing about the flight is there was just one restroom in the center of the flight and obviously its always occupied. So most of the times you end up walking to the end of the plane to use the rest room."

Cons: "The blankets and pillows were dirty and worn out. The plane was the same."

Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"

Cons: "A solution to the seat problem. If the seat only reclined 1/2 the distance they do now, the flight would be enjoyable."

Pros: "Excelente atención, bebidas y comida durante toco el viaje"
Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"

Pros: "Great organization, very efficient"
Cons: "Bag fees were not made clear on Kayak or Swiss website, seats on Edelweiss A320 we’re spaced too close together for my legs, though was not a problem on the 777."

Pros: "I liked that it was a straight flight from SFO -ZRH. On board entertainment was great."
Cons: "Seating is way to tight. Service from crew is nothing at all like it used to with Swiss. Nearly a smile from crew ( both legs of flight) mostly just hand motion when serving food. Food was a big disappointment too. It feels like all the good service is reserved only for business and first class !"

Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, very good food, good entertainment"

Pros: "I was offered to check in my carry on, it was nice."
Cons: "I was told a wheel chair would be available to help me get to Terminal E in Zurich. I had literally TO RUN to catch my connecting flight to NYC since the chair was not their for me in Zurich. I almost missed my flight. I am a 79 years old woman. That was one terrible experience."

Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."

Pros: "The flight waited for us as transit after delay of the firs flight from Munich"
Cons: "1. the food was a disaster. 2. The noise on the flight from a group of passengers was terrible, no way to sleep or rest. 3. The staff did not try to calm the people the steward laugh me when I complained.."

Cons: "It was torture in the cramped seats"

Pros: "Our quick trip from ZUR to FLR was great! Flight was on time and pilot kept all passengers well informed upon our arrival in FLR."

Pros: "plane and crew were fine. Didn’t use any entertainment."
Cons: "checked baggage fee at airport exorbitant."

Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."
Cons: "Poor boarding process. Plane change caused poor seat selection after they changed the seats that we paid extra for. Very little leg room for an overseas flight."

Pros: "All good, just perfect and friendly crew. Great aircraft (B777)"

Pros: "Clean airplane and toilets Many entertainment choice No turbulence"
Cons: "3 separate passport control checks Last minute gate number announcement Very long flight 9.5 hours Tight seat room"

Pros: "The booking to a new flight was seamless."
Cons: "We had to take a different flight on Lufthansa which had a whole list of it's own problems."

Pros: "Everything was excellent from boarding with almost no delays to the service on board. We would definitely travel with swiss again"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and helpful."
Cons: "We were glad to have extra leg room at the bulk head, however, the seats themselves were extremely narrow. My elderly father found it exceptionally difficult to sit and stand from the seat. The seat table creates an ever tighter fit for someone with special needs."

Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, efficient, courteous Refreshments generous and excellent. Good movies."
Cons: "Rather than boarding economy passengers by row number, there is a free-for-all at the gate, and tedious blockage in the aisles as passengers wait for others to place carry-on luggage. More leg-room than United, but still a bit crowded for tall people. VERY BAD DESIGN of arm-rests, which do not go up all the way into the seat but instead jut out at an angle."

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Check in at Nuremberg terrible"

Pros: "Great flight. Lots of good food."

Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"

Pros: "Polite cree"
Cons: "Crowded plane, long boarding and waiting to be seated"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."

Pros: "Fast"

Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."

Pros: "Flight was overbooked so we were offered a cash incentive to volunteer to wait for the next flight, which we accepted. Boarding staff were great."
Cons: "Very long time to board which resulted in flight leaving late"

Cons: "Delayed flight and lost my luggage..."

Pros: "Generally clean environs and safe flight"
Cons: "Food was rather awful (other than the Movenpick ice cream). fold-out table and materials of seat seemed pretty cheaply made. Also not enough legroom. Hard to get service to come for your seat for extra water. Chocolate at end of flight was a cute touch."

Pros: "Too short to rate but good overall"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The chocolates shaped like soccer balls. The fantastic icecream"

Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious with ample leg room."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Timing of delivery could have been better balanced."

Cons: "Flight attendants blocked the aisle cleaning after meal service. The line of more than 10 people formed in the aisle trying to go to the lavatories, and the flight attendants would not move even after repeated requests by a parent who had a two year old needing to go. The lavatories were vacant at the time. Why can't they clear out and let people pass through. Never seen this type unaccommodating behavior."

Pros: "Boarding / deplaning process, well maintained aircraft, good food. Fair price."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Cons: "While waiting for boarding I overheard a young woman, who was traveling with several companions, screaming to her mother on the phone that she and her friends had all gotten bedbugs and were in agony! She was making plans to leave all of her bags in the driveway when she got home. I discretely let boarding staff know and was told there is nothing they can do about it. They also cannot change my flight, or my seat, in the event that I am seated next to the person with the issue. They did give me a bag in which to place my carry on before storing it overhead. But once on the plane, I realized that my checked bag would be thrown in with everyone else's. In addition, I had forgotten to preorder gluten free food. The airline had nothing gluten free to offer me on a prolonged international flight and did not even offer to produce any gluten free snack (peanuts? cheese?) to tide me over. My luggage is still sitting in my car awaiting a process. However, in the unfortunate event that it has come into contact with bedbugs it may be too late :("

Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect, sincere, and friendly. Great selection of free movies."
Cons: "I could not open my laptop and do any work once the person in front of me put their seat back. Big time bummer."

Pros: "I was not able to make the flight due to the coronavirus. The hospital I’m employed at banned outside travel. I tried contacting the airline and kayak to get a refund."

Pros: "Fast boarding and well maintained airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants could check on passengers more often. They seemed to just serve the standard drinks/meals and then disappear."

Cons: "This’s the worse airlines that I ever use in my life, in my way back to Boston I get to the airport 2 and half hours before my flight, it was so crowded outside the door, so I didn’t get to check in till like an hour and 10 minutes, Guess what! They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said?? They have me payed for another thicket to I take the next flight They are so weird, even when you called the customers service they will do nothing for you, like they don’t live in our planet!! Trust me stay away from this turkish airlines"

Cons: "I was first seated next to the two largest people on the plane, a couple. There was hardly room for me in the seat. I had the aisle seat. I asked the flight attendant if I could be reseated and she said the plane was full and there were no open seats. She eventually found me a middle seat in the back of the plane, which was so cramped I could harpy move. For a 10 hours flight, not good. I have gold status on Star Alliance, which got me an upgrade from Bishkek to Istanbul, but didn't help on this flight."

Pros: "Good food"

Pros: "Service was nice, crew was very respectful and the gift were well within accomidation"
Cons: "Leaving the aircraft by stairs to the runway"

Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "In contrast to my trip from SFO, this was a delight. They use Airbus A330s, which are huge and very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the service quite warm. The boarding was again late --it is becoming a theme with this airline and of course, we were late taking off and arriving,"

Pros: "EXCELLENT AIR LINE"

Pros: "The entertainment part."
Cons: "It wasn't comfortable. They never give you a gate number in your ticket and I had to go and ask for it many times.No Internet, you had to pay to get access, why should I when you pay a lot of money for your ticket. Food choices sucked because they said sorry we only have one item from the menu...really? You are making me eat something that I don't want to eat.."

Pros: "We flew during the first week of the Atlanta to Istanbul flight on Turkish airlines. The plane is new, seats were comfortable and in flight service meals were tasty. Good selection of food and alcohol. Also, new movies and good selection of top rated movies to keep us entertained for this 10 hour or so flight."
Cons: "Staff wasn't all that friendly. My husband and I fly all the time on domestic and international airlines ( American, Delta, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, etc). The flight attendants just do not seem happy at all. They hustle around and speak to passengers in a very brisk and cold manner. Customer service training is warranted if they truly want to be a best in class global airline."

Cons: "Rude stewardess"

Pros: "The crew works very hard to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable. I appreciate it very much. The food service is quite good and the entertainment is excellent. The price is excellent for the service you receive. I agree with other reviews that a tall person will be very uncomfortable with the leg room. I am 5'7' (170 cm) and my knees hit the seat in front of me when the seat was leaned back."

Pros: "Service and food was excellent"
Cons: "Cabin pressure was awful last 30 mins. My ears and teethical were killing me."

Cons: "The crew, was rude to passengers with kids"

Cons: "I didn't go and was refused my refund"

Pros: "Boarding and entertainment were fine"
Cons: "I'm so sorry to share a negative experience as my previous Turkish flights have been fabulous! This crew took more than 1 hr 15 mins to initially serve the meal and drinks. There were only 30 rows on the plane and two attendant groups doing serving, This is much slower than on other bigger flights with the same number of attendants. Pickup of trays was also slow. They spilled food on the floor more than once and on me during pick up of trays, without even excusing themselves to me or other passengers. It just seemed like an unusual Turkish Airlines crew. Crews are normally way more professional. I will continue to fly Turkish again and hope the next time will be a better experience."

Cons: "The tv did`nt work, both mine and my hosband. The seats were small and crowded."
