Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding and arrival was on time."
Cons: "Crew unprofessional, gave my vegan sister a chicken sandwich, forgot to serve some guests, they were unpolite and inpatient."

Cons: "It was a 10hr flight and we were fed only twice... full meals at the top & bottom of the flight. There were no snacks or drink service in-between... a 6hr stretch. I fly a lot internationally and that was quite unusual and unwelcome. They also ran out of food"

Pros: "Excellent food on time departure and landin excellent fare."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"

Turkish airlines changes 6 hour transit time we purchased to more than 24 hours transit time and they refuse to help us when we try to change the flight to other day. Because of that we are forced to stay in terminal for morethan a day with out any hotel arrangment. I wouldn't recommend their service to any one. So sad"
Cons: "Good floght"
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."

Cons: "The food was horrendous. Had to buy food when I landed in. Istanbul."

Pros: "The boarding process was very good."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm."
Pros: "The seat was comfort"
Pros: "The people and service and food were all excellent. My only problem was missing the connecting flight. See comments on the right."
Cons: "The flight was late in leaving, so I missed my connecting flight and had to stay overnight in Instanbul. It would have been nice if they were more organized and could have postponed the flight, or made arrangements for those who were on a connecting flight to be driven over there quickly."
Cons: "There was a gate change shortly before boarding but it wasn't ever announced on the loudspeaker. I was sitting at the original gate and by sheer lucK happened to get up and walk past the departures info screens only to see that my flight was listed at a totally different gate. I feel I could've easily missed my flight even though I was sitting right there at the gate that had been listed when I first arrived to the airport."
Pros: "Food and service in the cabin"
Cons: "Service in IST was very slow. We could not find wheelchairs for two family members even after ordering it months in advance."
Cons: "Actually we were denied at Istanbul to get on this flight because they said they have closed the gate,even if they knew we were coming with the transfer from budapest.after that they made us pay almost 900$ for a reboking fee in order to get us on the next flight,huge amount for a reboking fee which I am trying to get back at least half of my money,terrible experience,in Istanbul at the airport nobody wanted to help us,they don't speak english,I ended to pay almost 2500$ for me and my husband for the tickets"
Pros: "Everything aboard the flight was great - roominess, comfort, punctuality, etc. Getting to the plane was another story."
Cons: "Boarding process in ISt was a zoo. Crazy check-in process, leading to a 3-flight set of stairs down to tarmac - crowded coach was hot - long (10-minute) coach ride from one end of ISt to the other - then climb a tall stair case into a 777, one of the largest aircraft around. Did it not qualify for normal direct boarding via a jetway?"
Pros: "I have no complains."
Cons: "I love this air line, thank you for your service."
Cons: "F u forget or lost something in the plane just forget about it the crew gonna stole it,, they usually have a bad organization in the baggage claim so the probability to get ur stuff less than 50% Istanbul airport was terrible most of the employees don't speak English also u need at least 1 hrs in the line just for inquiries in the Turkish information office I don't recommend it at all"
Cons: "Booked ticket via Kakak (Vyoma). It was an horrible experience to change ticket probably Vyoma tried best but Turkish would not allow to change the ticket and I had to buy another ticket for return journey."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Delicious Turkish Delights and hot towels served after takeoff. The best features though were how they handle long layovers in Istanbul. If it's during the day there's a free tour of the city and overnight we were given a fantastic hotel with shuttle and wakeup calls. That made the long flight much easier."
Pros: "The food on the way over"
Cons: "the lack of legroom"
Cons: "the hot meal was not hot, it was actually less than warm. the stewardesses had difficulty understanding english and they didn't once asked ( except for the welcoming drink) if i needed anything or offered a drink or water or tea for the duration. the bathroom run out of towel paper and was not refilled. throughout the flight the hosts were all congregating in the front of the plane and were not visiting passengers."
Pros: "Great customer service. Comfortable arrangements. Good food. Nice toiletries. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like the boarding process @ Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Nice upgrade on a full flight for me as a United Milion miler! Smaller plane but modern and well equiped. Food and service were great."
Cons: "Boarding situation again.....mayhem at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "My wife and I recently travelled to Istanbul on Turkish airlines. We travel quite frequently and had a great experience. The staff was friendly, the food and entertainment options were exceptional. We would definitely fly on this airline again."
Cons: "The process of checking our bags in and printing our boarding passes took ten or fifteen minutes due to an incredibly slow computer system. The agent seemed competent, but complained that the computer kept freezing on him."
Cons: "Customs when we arrived in MPLS. Around 300 people get off the plane and they have 1 TSA agent checking passports. Terrible staffing and management on their part. Pretty sad!"
Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Boarding on time and announcing changes to the bowrding schedule instead of leaving customers guessing."
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Cons: "... on top of that I kindly requested to speak with a supervisor and i was denied it. As a customer I deserved that. I would a ticket with Aerolineas and nowhere it said it was delta. I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."
Cons: "No usb or electric socket to charge mobile phones Landing was very rough"
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not much space for Carry ons. Much smaller than most aircrafts"
Pros: "Pilot welcome to the plan was very nice seats was comfortable food was good"
Cons: "Crew attaitude is not really pleasant with passengers"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "It was very good flight"
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Cons: "Too cramped. No leg room"
Cons: "Flight delay 5+ hours poor Service"
Pros: "The friendliness of the flight crew and professionalism"
Cons: "The seats in the Boeing 717 or way too cramped. You would think there will be more legroom in the exit row but there is not"
Pros: "The flight is short"
Cons: "Delayed from 930pm to 6am. Didn't tell us till almost midnight. Because of scheduling issues not weather or anything. The check in people had no idea what I was talking about when I tried to check in for my 6am rescheduled flight."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Movie selection and cable channels"
Cons: "My connection was abruptly changed, it took a long time to straighten out, but they eventually did."
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours late leaving due to frost on wings. De icing truck wouldn’t work so they waited until sunrise and parked the plane in the sun. Real hi tech solution."
Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."
Pros: "Landed from Sydney at 8am. Flew to San Francisco at 4pm. Long wait. Not good."
Cons: "Landed in Los Angeles at 8am. Left for San Francisco at 4pm. Aweful."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."
Pros: "I'm very satisfied."
Cons: "No comemt"
Pros: "2 hour delay.. had requested when I originally booked the flight an isle seat. I did not get it. The flight was long and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "Helpful crew, more food than usual, entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Didn't get meal request even though we did on flight to Europe and despite phone agent working to generate and verifying them before both flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "It's hard for me to write this review as the first 4.5 hour leg was incredible. Staff was very friendly and did a great job. Otherwise, the equipment was old and dated. Good thing it's only an hour-ish flight."
Cons: "Old plane, hard seats designed for humans less than 3 years old."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "They got us from A to B without any problems."
Cons: "Efficient to the point of robotic."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and plane was on time."
Cons: "Seats were old and dated and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "Crew was not helpful. Our flight was diverted to Memphis to refuel due to bad weather in Atlanta. The crew would not contact the Atlanta base about connections. Although I ended up making my connecting flight (as it was delayed 2 hours) my baggage has yet to arrive."
Pros: "The staff is very nice and helpful"
Cons: "When i booked i chose my seats ahead of time and they got switched. both flights I was put in seats i did not choose."
Pros: "The plane looks nice from the outside."
Cons: "Was not made aware check in closes AN HOUR before flight. Missed entirely. No one to help me at desk."
Pros: "I liked the free Wi-Fi"
Cons: "The seats are cramped! You pack in people like cattle unless you're in the overpriced 1st class section! The flight attendant were rude, they looked like they hated their jobs. Of course the first class attendants were always smiling. The whole de-boarding process is awful there needs to be more organization rather than everyone trying to get up and get their bags at one time!"
Pros: "Everything. !!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No cell charger. The return policy should match swa, I'll never prefer delta until the return policy matches swa. No fees. Credits can be split between flights. One year to use credit."
Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Excellent take off and landing. Liked the extra legroom in coach for a bit more $$. Super friendly & professional crew. PA system was very difficult to understand."
Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours. Made me miss my connection. Also it is far too cramped for anyone who is tall. We need more leg room"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew was excellent! Very impressed"
Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"
Pros: "Clean, modern place. Professional staff."
Pros: "HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE"
Cons: "Dropped us off in random country for two days with no information and missing 3 days of our trip and losing money on the trip we paid for. Limited information given to us once they abandoned us following the “emergency landing” that the pilot was “sick” stuck here over 24 hours and now my new flight is overbooked and my boyfriend has a seat but I DO NOT."
Pros: "The staff was good to me when I became ill on the flight with a migraine."

Pros: "Went smoothly and without delays"
Cons: "Did not like them charging extra for a seat assignment."
Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."
Cons: "Flight was continually delayed, 15 by 15 minutes until 4 hours had elapsed."
Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, we all had a bottle of water at our seats, we were immediately served drinks and snacks, the meals were really nice (haven't had this in years). Plane crew were friendly and helpful. Kids loved the entertainment selection - it kept them occupied throughout the flight in spite of their young age (3yrs and 5 yrs)."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Pros: "all on time"
Cons: "seating very cramped"
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew, service was excellent"
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Blasting speakers for announcements, should have served a quick drink"
Pros: "Just a normal trip"
Cons: "My male neighbor was hanging in my seat :( No normal milk for my coffee - only cream and I don't like cream"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "Airline crew very friendly and courteous throughout entire flight"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "Lack of good movies"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Pros: "leg room"
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Pros: "Very accomdating crew"
Cons: "The screen was really close got me dizzy when I had to put my seat back to upright position for meal and drinks"
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
Pros: "Big plane and there is a lower level for toilets that makes it easy for passengers to access and not be close to bathrooms"
Cons: "Movies choices were not current. Haven been on Delta and United, the choices on Lufthansa were not that good."
Cons: "thet lost my bag. two days later still not reunited. pasta dinner was horribly pasty"
Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
Pros: "seats were a bit bigger, ,more leg room, fewer people"
Cons: "The snack was not very natural...... could have been simpler with pure, non chemical ingredients......Organic would be best"
Cons: "747 with 10 across seating in cattle car class. Seats way too narrow and the pitch was way too short. NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "food service ,"
Cons: "passengers are the ones looking for overhead space , one of the crew instead of assisting a passenger , told the passenger to go up front of the plane to look for overhead space. boarding on some airlines are called out according to your seat assignment except the first class ."
Pros: "The cabin crew was particularly attentive"
Pros: "Everything was acceptable."
Cons: "The snack option could be better since it was around lunch time but oh well nothing to complain in specific."
Pros: "So enjoyed the hot towel and beverage service. Lots of leg room!"
Pros: "Best on flight meals I've had. Great crew. USB charging."
Cons: "The economy class on a 747 is way too crowded. Internet access was very expensive (€17/day). I wish the on board TV, which showed live soccer could have had a way too see live news: specifically the presidential debate."
Pros: "New plane, new seats, new entertainment system. All very goo to great. The dinner was above average in terms of taste but the breakfast was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Breakfast food wasn't very good."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process meant passengers were all boarded in a timely manner and the flight departed on-time."
Pros: "Lie Flat Seats were awesome. Service was excellent."
Pros: "It was great that there was a vegetarian food option for everyone; I forgot to call ahead to ensure that I got one"
Cons: "The TV screens on the seat backs were old; gave a fuzzy low-res picture. The audio in the headphones was never correctly left-right balanced. The controls for movie/audio playback were slow to respond and clunky."
Cons: "As a Delta Elite member I was not impressed that the First Class section had only 1 person in it. Should have been some people upgraded."
Pros: "Delft-themed safety briefing was lovely. Excellent flight."
Pros: "2-4-2 configuration was ideal, because we had a pair of seats on the side"

I was fine with that especially since I saw it was a smaller plane and I could not maneuver the steps with both my carry-on and my personal item. I asked if I could also check my computer bag and she said no. The fact that I have trouble walking and maneuvering and she wasn't willing to help me out just seemed like very poor customer service. Had I known about trying to maneuver the stairs I would have been more prepared."

This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."

Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane.

Pros: "Crew was very nice."

Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
