Broken entertainment screen, would not stay upright, due to several hundred thousand past passengers bashing into it after having first trodden on the unfortunate passengers feet! Crew unresponsive with drink and food requests, I had to ask for services multiple times on several occasions. Pressing my 'attendant button' my light was lit for 10 minutes before a crew member noticed. My first trip on Singapore, my expectations were not met. Shame"
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"

Pros: "Flight Delhi to Singapore was uncomfortable. Flight to SFWas very comfortable. Roomy seats. Good service."
Cons: "Segment Delhi to Singapore."
Pros: "Best economy experience I've ever had. The cabin crew is very attentive, constantly coming around with drinks and water refills. They also had decent light snacks in case you were hungry between meals. I also loved the chairback setup and the entertainment unit. If flying economy, Singapore will be my airline of choice."
Cons: "Food was meh. Above average, but still not amazing."
Pros: "The sevice was on point. Flight attendants were beautiful and worked harder than any other airline I have been on. The uniforms were on point too. The television had every new movie you could watch. Food, for an airline, was great. All drink service was included. Best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "Wifi cost 12 bucks and hour."
Pros: "Before booking my flight on Singapore airlines, I took the time to read through some reviews and to be honest, the reviews left by previous passengers did not do the airlines any justice. I rarely, if at all, leave any reviews myself but my flights (from SFO - Singapore and vice versa) were AMAZING! I was sitting in economy and the level of attentiveness that we received, I could only imagine how great first class could be. if i could fly Singapore on all my trips overseas I would."
Pros: "Always great and efficient service. Comfortable despite the limitations of the plane itself (don't particularly like Airbus planes)."
Cons: "Wish the food could have been better and the choice for dessert wider."

Pros: "Great food and fantastic service"
Cons: "Needs more legroom"
Pros: "Everything about this airline was great. It would be impossible to go hungry on this airline. Half the time I can't get a bag of peanuts on a 6 hour flight. On Singapore airlines someone was always there to accommodate you. Best service I've had yet. Highly recommend this airline!"
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
"Coach seats are just too cramped for an 14 hour and 45 minute flight. Not the airlines fault, that is just the way it is today. Great incentive to upgrade to Business Class, but that would have been an extra $970, not in the budget for my company. I will say this, the meals and flight attendants are world class, even in Coach. I had a blind woman sitting in front of me and the genuine care that the flight attendant proactively provided was heartwarming and inspirational. I was moved by the personal touch and genuinely sincere interest by the fight attendant in this woman's experience and safety. Every aspect of the journey, this particular flight attendant made the airline proud."
"I liked the Crew . The food was terrible .I was starving. I couldn't eat the food."
"It’s good, thanks for all team members"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."

Cons: "The check in at JFK, too chaotic"
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "The airlines' film library offers plenty of movies to watch."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat. The crew pushed the service carts in the gangway and hit me a couple of times, and I was very much annoyed because I was waken up while asleep."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."

Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"
Pros: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."
Cons: "Seats are small and huge line for the toilet, but that is the nature of the plane and not Qatar's problem. Boarding was only good because passengers did not cooperate adn stood up when they were asked repeatedly not to."
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."

Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."
Cons: "I have booked the flight for my mom and I requested a wheel chair her, she Has a broken arm . And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"

When I went to the counter, despite being the one holding all the documents (and having organized the whole travel itinerary, the staff only spoke to my husband (Whi hadn’t a clue about the journey) in Japanese. They proceeded to check us in on their computer and insisted that we use their paperwork, not mine. What a farce. What a waste of paper and my time."

We had to sit on the aircraft for 5 extra hours on top of what was already an extra long flight. 21 hours on the plane - and there was no coffee! Being on a plane for that long, you should be able to get a cup of coffee. Staff seemed annoyed as well and were overall a bit rude. Wine tasted like acid."

Pros: "Everything was on time, with no hitches or major inconveniences."

Pros: "For a long flight, it was comforable."

She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"

As a pilot, i can tell you this can be avoided. Some of the crew were not friendly. Old movie library."

Pros: "Very nice airline i like turkish airline clean best service"
Pros: "comfortable plane: new, new media systems, leg room. usb to charge my phone."
Cons: "I ordered a special meal, and I did not get it. The response I got from the crew was: 'so you refuse to take the regular meal? we will report you didn't get what you ordered'. and I stayed hungry. In general, the crew wasn't very welcoming."
Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"
Pros: "We loved everything about our flight, plane was so quiet and service was amazing"

Pros: "Smooth flight in general, nice staff"
Cons: "Food used to be better"
Pros: "Excellent service with comfort"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Crew in both flights were friendly. The service boarding etc was great. Flight was very turbulent."
Cons: "Passenger next to me wanted water constantly. The passenger on left of me constantly wanted wine. One got very little attention while the other treated like royalty. Unfortunately the African passenger who wanted water went thirsty a lot."
Pros: "I did not like anything."
Cons: "Everything. I will never book a flight from Kayak from now on. Kayak just charged us a lot of money and did not do anything for us."
Pros: "Good service and very smooth flight"
Pros: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Cons: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Pros: "Fantastic onboard entertainment. Lots of current movies and tv shows to watch. Music was available, too. Even a camera under the plane to see what you’re flying over...usually clouds. USB charging, big screens in the headrests, games, remote control with keyboard and game controller, network cable for laptops without Wi-Fi even. The had pillows and blankets on every seat when we arrived and handed out hot towels before the first meal. They also provided a kit with eye mask, toothbrush, cologne, and slippers. Far better than we expected."
Cons: "We were subjected to at least five security checks after our transfer in Istanbul. At the gate they checked our passports and boarding passes five times before boarding, every carry on bag was searched and every person was patted down. We even watched while one man held up his baby for a guard to pat the baby down! This was all after the security we’d received to get to our gate. So, if you left the gate to use the bathroom, you had to go through all the checks again."
Pros: "Food—though not much of it! If you’re asleep, good luck getting any food afterward. They were out of breakfasts after I awoke. Didn’t they count the reservations?"
Cons: "Restrooms dirty, cabin dirty—no owriodic seeeps, staff that makes no effort to interact. They appear frantic and overworked. sure hope the pilots are more engaged than everyone w Turkish Air"
Pros: "Service was excellent and plane very comfortable for the long journey."
Cons: "No vegan options. I thought I was getting a vegan meal that I called to request a month ahead of time and the flight crew told me they only had vegetarian. Needless to say my snacks were not quite enough to hold me for 13 hours."
Pros: "Food was good conpared to other airline companies. Entertainment was good too, lot of choice."
Cons: "Some flight attendants were impatient/looked unhappy."
Pros: "nothing really special"
Cons: "Food is very Poor Seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great but I particularly liked the meals. Many fine movies. However, The movie viewer on my wife's seat did not work."
Cons: "Flying from Barcelona to get a flight to Boston from Istanbul was a mistake on our part. We saved money but were awake for more than 34 hours"
Pros: "Organized and well prepared. No attitude from the flight attendants. Everything went smooth as it should be. We left a bit late and we got on time. Pilots exelled."
Cons: "On our way back to US, we were kept in a small area with no air conditioner for one hour."
Pros: "The food! So much food that at one point they were bringing more things and i just looked at them like are u crazy? It was tasty and warm."
Cons: "I liked everything."
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."
Pros: "Attentiveness Professionalism"
Pros: "This flight was more comfortable and has less overall radiating plane/ engine noise (it certainly could have been because of where my seat was on the flight). Again the food was delicious, and I appreciated just how often the crew came around to give out water (I get very dehydrated on flights so I appreciated that very much)"
Pros: "Food, Friendly and attentive staff and air hostesses"
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable, the economy legroom is only good for a person shorter than 5 feet, the seat cushions lack good padding and comfort."
Pros: "Pretty good quality for an economy class, including free beer and wine, and a variety of movies. Price was the best."
Cons: "The crew deodorizing the bathrooms every hour or so (overdoing ...)."
Pros: "Crew service, food and entertainment. Will fly again with this airline and recommend it to others."
Cons: "The lack of space, how small the seat is. On very long flights gets very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Headphone output didn't function so entertainment was pretty useless. Very slow food/drink service since only one attendant operates each cart."
Pros: "Loved the service, comfort, entertainment, etc. All of this was top notch and the 13 hour flight went by very quickly."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare. I blame my country more than the airline for the new security procedures needed but I literally went through 4 security checkpoints to get on the plane. Not only that, I had to give up my iPad and my $4000 camera to checked luggage at the gate (not my luggage but theirs). Again...not the airlines fault but it was an absolute cluster F...."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and high quality staff."
Cons: "Boarding procedures, especially owing to TSA requirements. difficult."
Cons: "the worst costumer service ever"
Pros: "On-line check, including seat selection, was easy. Requested vegetarian meals and got them! Food was quite good."
Cons: "Because of the coup in Turkey, I had to cancel my flight. I'm still trying to get my partial reimbursement. It been two weeks!"
Pros: "The one episode of Modern Family from the one of the old seasons"
Cons: "The fact that it took 4 (in 4 hours) attempts and a request to fill out a complaint form that got the staff to switch the air back on on a flight to AFRICA!!! I was about to undress myself to stop sweating!! Seats are uncomfortable and TV selection outdated."
Pros: "I loved it from the second it started, I didn't want to get off the plane. The service and comfort can't be beat. You get alot more than what you pay for."
Cons: "The entertainment was a little out of date and lacking but everything else makes up for it"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable. I wasn't sure what to expect from the airline, I'd never heard anyone who flew with them before but it was a pretty good experience especially being my first trip to Europe"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Pros: "In general, service was of good quality. Crew very attentive. The film selection was outstanding. Routing was good. I would not hesitate to take this flight again. Seat are comfortable, although somewhat old-fashioned. In general, I think that this is an excellent airline, my choice for the future."
Cons: "There was some confusion in boarding, due to a gate change not clearly announced ahead of time. But I do not wish to overstate this, since I was satisfied in general."
Pros: "One of the best airlines I've ever flown. Would definitely recommend."
Pros: "Plane itself was nice with very comfortable seats. Good selection of movies and shows to watch in flight."
Cons: "For a flight from IST-NPL they only had beef options for food. Nepal is a Hindu country and majority of people on the flight were Hindu. It's very inconsiderate for them to bit have planned for more non beef food options. I turned on the service button 3 times within an hour. No one came. Separately I also asked 3 flight attendants for some water. None of them got me water! There were at least four parties with kids younger than 3 and a few older people. It would have been nice if boarding call was made to allow these people to board first so they could settle down camly, without stressing the kids and everyone else behind them!!"
Cons: "foot and smile face"
Pros: "Very friendly crew relatively comfortable airplane some of the best food up in the sky"
Cons: "had to board bus from terminal to airplane. too many checkpoints from security lines to the plane. some of those you can understand in a plane heading to the US. BUT some of them are totally useless and unnecessary. alos putting too many stickers on your passport. Turkish have to keep in mind that if every airport has done the same my passport will be covered up with stickers by now."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good. The economy seats were decently spacious and the food was good as well. If I would fly Turkish again, I would fly specifically because of these reasons."
Cons: "The pre-boarding experience was bad and at times a little arrogant as well. I boarded Turkish three times, once in San Francisco, second in Istanbul and third in Barcelona. While the experience of boarding the flight was good in Barcelona, the crew sitting at the flight information desk in Istanbul and the crew sitting on the counter wasn't very helpful and plain arrogant at times. This was the crew providing information in Istanbul: Me: Hi, could you please tell me the meal plan selected for my next flight? Crew: (shouting) You dont have a connecting flight hence no meal is provided to you. What are you doing here you should be at your terminal immediately. Next!! (I was 8 min away from my terminal and asking this question 30 minuted before my boarding time). After handing her my passport, this was the lady who greeted me at the check-in counter in San Francisco: Lady: Is Istanbul your final destination Me: Actually I have flights from Istanbul to Barcelona and then later to (interrupted) Lady: Sir, your final destination is Istanbul (harsher tone). Me: (Not sure what to make out of that information) Could you check because I have booked some more flights later. Lady: (laughing at me now) Do you understand what I said, your flight destination is Istanbul. Lady: (Now I was a little angry because of the language and the tone) Ok whatever check me in. She now starts processing my check-in. Suddenly starts smiling to the other passenger on my right. Gets up starts talking to them. Comes back after a couple of minutes. Then she checks the other flights Lady: You have a flight after two days to Barcelona. Do you have a visa for that? Me: Yes. And then we just leave without saying anything else. I later found out what she meant. Rule says I have to check-out my bags whenever I have a flight after 24 hours and therefore my final destination was Istanbul. There was a better way to tell us about this for sure."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment selection on Turkish Airlines is good."
Cons: "Boarding procedures were not directed in an organized manner by Turkish Airlines staff. The gate staff need training in how to direct the boarding session i.e. passengers needing assistance first (seniors, families with children under 6), then business class, then Group A, Group B etc. These categories are used by other airlines for good reason - they regulate the flow of people onto the aircraft and prevent out-of-control crowding at the boarding counter. People with legitimate right to board first understandably become irate. In addition, on the flight from Istanbul to Abuja there was an unexpected stop in Tunis. Passengers were not advised of this stop in advance. Even upon arrival in Tunis it took about 15 minutes for an announcement over the loudspeaker system to explain what was going on and the new arrival time in Abuja etc. This is not acceptable as all passenger need to advise those meeting them on arrival of any delay. My office staff waited at the airport in Abuja for 3+ hours which would have been unnecessary with sufficient notice. Airline staff and crew also need more English training to properly serve passengers going to international destinations."
