Two big hot meals served throughout the flight and plenty of drink service. lots of leg room and could recline comfortably. Flight attendants were wonderful and very helpful. Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."
Cons: "Flew economy for the 2nd part of my trip and the seat was very hard and was impossible to get comfy. Same meal service as premium economy and was once again delicious. Much colder on this flight and the thin blankets do very little to help."

Pros: "Crew was really professional and friendly, I sat beside a mom with 2 kids and the crew really helped her in her needs and made sure we were all okay. Food was good and I loved the movie selection, watched all the Oscar movies I've missed."

Pros: "Very clean and modern aircraft. Staff were friendly and attentive. They provided directions and a guide for travelers transitioning from domestic to international flights. Strongly recommend Japan Airlines."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight attendants were very..attentive!"

Pros: "The courtesy and professionalism is a 10."
Cons: "Checking in with Japan Airlines was a serious hassle. I had my e-ticket but they kept asking me if I had already paid. The flight was apparently overbooked but than at the last minute, they gave me and my girlfriend seats separated from each other. I sat in the back, she sat in front. The tickets also had trouble scanning and kayak isn't a known agency."

Pros: "Still, love JAL's customer service from the cabin crew. The flight attendants are always friendly, courteous and professional. They do a great job of meeting and exceeding passengers expectations"
Cons: "The cabin area was extremely warm; at one point, I had to take out the safety card and fan myself. There was no explanation why the approximately 5-hour flight was uncomfortably warm. During the flight, I woke up from a sound sleep because of the heat in the cabin."

Pros: "The thing I value the most is customer service, and JAL did a great job! The crew was pleasant, always quick to respond to passenger needs and were interested in quality service."

Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."

Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service by JAL check-in people and the flight crew. Also, for a standard economy seat, I found the seat spacing and resulting legroom was generous - and I'm 6 ft. tall."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, really."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "There were so many people who walk around an aisle but the flight attendant didn't control them. They kept pushing my seat and hit. I was so uncomfortable."

Pros: "The flight was great! Premium Economy on JAL is worth the price. The leg rest was a huge perk and luckily nobody was sitting next to me so it felt extra roomy!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection wasn't as robust as other flights. I had to make sure and "save" things for the flight back so I wasn't bored. I always pack a book or game along the way, so it really wasn't that much of an issue."

Cons: "Same thing as above"

Pros: "excellent foods and services, spacious seats, crews speak english, flight is landing is smooth"
Cons: "seats need a bit more padding"

Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."

Pros: "The excellent service and courteous staff."
Cons: "Three babies were crying throughout the flight which made the flight in uncomfortable. The flight attendants were spending a lot of time accommodating the babies and parents requests."

Pros: "Amazing customer service, flight attendants could not be more welcoming."

Cons: "Could not enjoy the music and NHK news on the plane."

Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."

Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."
Cons: "The JAL first-generation 787s don't provide the great legroom that newer planes do, but is still infinitely better than older 767s and 747s."

Cons: "Having to leave a comfortable setting"

Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"

Pros: "The staff was very friendly was nice trip"
Cons: "The food was not great"

Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"

Cons: "Great service."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The inflight entertainment was down for 2/3 of the people flying. And it was a 14 hour flight... :/"

Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"

Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."

Pros: "Exceptional service!"

Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"

Pros: "Website and in-flight service is quite good. Flights take-off and land on time. The crew is international and quite professional."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment system is not quite good. The touch screen is not responsive and the movie selection is not very good. This is where Emirates excels."

Pros: "The entertainment selections and the comfort of my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours without any warning, despite being registered for the airline's flight notification system. Service was terrible. The flight crew did not offer any kind of apology or explanation for the delay. Food and beverage service was delayed and the staff was forgetful of guests' requests. Upon our arrival in Doha, checked bags did not arrive until 2 hours after we landed! How does an airport receive a 5-star rating, but takes 2 hours to return baggage to its guests? Overall, a poor experience from Qatar Airways."

Pros: "Good staff and service."
Cons: "Too long a flight and require more leg room and reclining seats to be more comfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment is always highlight"
Cons: "Crew services- trying to put my backpack up the space on the rack. But the crew says it is better to put my backpack under the chair. He explain it is more convenient to me. What's the reason he think it is more concienent to me. I dont understand his thought. I feel disappointed with the services. The crew are no professional. Please provide more training to these people"

Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"

Pros: "not a full flight so obviously more comfortable"
Cons: "did not like having to deplane then reboard"

Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"

Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."

Pros: "I do however appreciate that the plane did wait for us"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and although my connecting flight did wait this was only because a large number of other people on that flight where not only on my flight but where coming in from other flights as well. this seems like really poor management and practice"

Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."

Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"

Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."

Cons: "The vegetarian meals were pretty bad and I felt like the entertainment selection wasn’t great."

Pros: "Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!"

Cons: "More new movies selection"

Pros: "I liked everything about the Flight, and Crew"

Cons: "Flight was delayed but no reason was given or announced."

Cons: "As with all airlines, the "the hurry up and wait" processes associated with getting onto the plane are tiring."

Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"

Cons: "Airplane use to fly from Taipei to Ho Chi Minh old and dirty."

Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "30min Delay boarding and 30min delay on take-off."

Cons: "The armrests don’t go up. Huge problem for kids trying to sleep on an overnight flight!"

Pros: "Staff was very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but fortunately not long layovers. Would probably upgrade my seat from economy next time for some extra leg room."

Cons: "I had preselected a window seat, but somehow I was “bumped” out of this preselected window seat to a middle seat. I informed this detail to the Air China rep at check in but she would not listen nor care about it. I tried explaining several times, but basically got nowhere. Thanks for listening"

Cons: "None."

Pros: "Your system Kayak in general"
Cons: "You do not know what has happend to the bookings of your customers. With some routes, I completed my trips, then, you still run marketing email on those. For cancellation, even you still hold my original amount of money once placing booking, then, you charged again the second time for cancellation fees"

Pros: "They were very kind when I had to miss my first scheduled flight."

Cons: "Really delayed, almost missed connecting flights. No way to contact them about this aside from a phone number that we couldn't call internationally."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour to allow delayed passengers to arrive but kept us on the plane the whole time which was very inconvenient"

Cons: "2 hours late because of mechanical issues. They offered food with no water or juice - later only coffee or tea on a 3 and a half hour flight. Staff was not the friendliest - asked for water twice, was told just a moment but was never brought any. How do you not give people water on flight over 3 hours? I would have even paid for it. I have a history of heart failure and was worried because my ankles were swelling and my legs were tingling. We missed our bus because of the delay, The airline staff in taiwan took all of our travel info and said they would help us book other transport to get where we were going in Cambodia. When we got to Cambodia the check-in desk was closed so info told us to go to the china airlines office - we waited almost an hour and still no one showed up (middle of the afternoon). Had to pay 6x the price to get to Sihanoukville plus we weren't able to get a refund on the bus tickets. Crying, screaming kids in front of us kept standing up on the seats so no one behind them could see the TV - staff said nothing. Terrible experience."

Pros: "They got us there. Good movie selection. Good wine"
Cons: "Normal Chinese airline seats are small and hard just lick setting on a rock. Didn't eat the food."

Pros: "The flight crew were extremely friendly and nice."
Cons: "I had a pleasant ride. So I enjoyed my trip"

Pros: "No issues, no delays, food and services on par."

Cons: "The layover was more than 10 hours and NO hotel was provided."

Pros: "Great service once again and comfort seating without paying more. Liking China Air more and more every day. Stewardesses are very pleasant and food on a short 1 hr flight was quick and decent. Great sunset above the clouds!"

Pros: "Nothing. Didn't make flight and tried to contact by phone multiple times via email and phone to switch and was ignored"
Cons: "Tried to change flight according to their policy but was unsuccessful in getting in touch or getting a response from anybody in their company after multiple tries via phone and email. Please help me rectify"

Pros: "great"

Pros: "flight was only 2.5 hours long, but very good service for such a short flight flight attendant attention to detail, and kindness were much appreciated. multi lingual was also impressive alcoholic drink selection very good seats quite comfortable"
Cons: "entertainment non-existent for business class, or for my row (row 1). flight only 2.5 hours so no big deal, but entertainment on longer flight would have been a problem (no personal screen) suggest something like a competitor airline does (american company name, begins with "U"). use on-board wi-fi and we stream in entertainment onto our personal devices...."

Pros: "The staff on this leg of the flight was very nice, however, the next leg they were very rude."
Cons: "It was way too hot on the flight and the smell was very unpleasant. The seats were too close together."

Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No customer service people to talk to about seating. No one ever answer the telephone"

Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago.

Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."

Pros: "The food and service were pretty good. The entertainment was good, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. We were checked out and processed 7 times! The questions we were asked were so ridiculous that at some point I started laughing. The official wanted to see my itinerary since I left the US, and all if the places I had visited! (That was a month after the start of my trip since I was on my way back from my vacation). The seats are made for people who are 5 feet tall and skinny. The airport was so busy that we had to Wait inside the plain for over an hour because there was (taxiing traffic) and could not get on the take off Lane."

Pros: "Flight itself is very nice. Good service and media selection."
Cons: "Trip from ZAG to IAH Business Class. At ZAG they told me it was fine to take my skateboard onboard. At the Istanbul layover they forced me to pay $160 or else my items wouldn't make it on board. With a business class I still had to pay extra for a carry-on they said it was okay but then they changed their tune. I get it's in a different location but the same company is telling me two different things that ended up costing $160. On top of that, when I finally arrived at IAH they didn't have my skateboards... so I paid $160 for them to lose my boards."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "More alcohol choices"

Pros: "Entertainment options good"

Pros: "Service great."

Pros: "The seats and leg space very good. Flight clean ."
Cons: "Food served was poor in quality. Bread seemed to be stale and hard. Seems from the previous flight. Crew had poor service. Some food has fallen on the floor and she kept pushing to serve the same food and was reluctant to discard that tray."

Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"

Pros: "I,d all the service and the food the drink"
Cons: "The crews are very helpfull an Cain yes I will recommend Turkish airline thank you to make my trip so placent"

Pros: "Food was good conpared to other airline companies. Entertainment was good too, lot of choice."

The WiFi is horrible and hardly works. There aren't any quiet places to sleep and many of the phone charging stations cost money."

Pros: "Price price and price"
Cons: "They should serve Asian food for asian flights"

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."

Pros: "Good and comfortable"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "It is just crazy the extra cost that a person needs to pay for each extra Kg he/she needs to have onboard along with their "free baggage." I had to pay 23 extra US Dollars for every Kg, summing up to $160 for 7 Kgs!! Those additional belongings were crucial and important to carry, it very well understood that a certain capacity is only allowed onboard, yet being considerate and understanding in terms of customers' needs and priorities is as equally critical and important. I think the way the airline approaches the "Extra Weight" issue needs to be revisited, keeping in mind both sides' interests and concerns."

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: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "You dont have your own air vent and regardless of how much money they make from your ticket, they try to conserve in air. Asked multiple times because myself and everyone around me were fanning themselves off, staff didn't care and temperature didn't change."

Pros: "Food, service, comfort packs."

Cons: "Headphone output didn't function so entertainment was pretty useless. Very slow food/drink service since only one attendant operates each cart."

Pros: "Crew was top notch , food was great, loved the hot towels you get to freshen ourselves with, crew friendly and very patient. Loved that flight wasn't full and the three of us could spread out and be as comfy as possible."
Cons: "Very late 1.5 hours leaving JFK on way to Istanbul causing us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Arriving almost 2.5 later in the evening."

Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"

Cons: "The boarding took too long, cabin service on the return flight was a lot poorer than I received on the initial flight. It questions my quality recommendation to other people."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."

Pros: "The flight on time"
Cons: "Nothing. A short flight, not much expectation besides on time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in late, rude staff, bad food"

Pros: "Everything was great. Would never fly another airline if Turkish was available."
Cons: "You must hear this all the time. An eleven hour flight is torture. Maybe a little more padding in the seat cushions. Still, You Are GREAT"

Cons: "It was hot on the airplane"

Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Boarding process was poor. CREW HAD NO CONTROL over passengers standing, opening overhead bins and walking around while plane was taxing. FOOD WAS POOR at best horrible at times."

Cons: "The sears are so uncofortable. Leg space tragic!!"

Pros: "I liked almost everything. The service is excellent."
Cons: "It would be great if the transfer flights would have shorter option"

Pros: "I had a great time during my flight from istanbul to Seoul . My seat didn't recline and cabin crew immediately helped and took me to a business class as an apology . They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."

Cons: "The seat was very worn and I was sitting on rebar. Thankfully it was a short flight."

Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing."
