Pros: "Get crew, very friendly. Food is amazing and movies are latest"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."
Pros: "The price the food okay. The leg room seemed more in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "Not just your airline but a cultural differences how westerners take how they are talked too"
Pros: "The crew didn't their jobs well. They got everyone into the late arriving plane in no time. On flight service was good."
Cons: "Food was kind of bland, not living up to the level I experienced on the first leg. No personalized entertainment systems."
Pros: "Had to request a wheelchair at the last minute. Staff was swift and courteous. During the flight it was rather bumpy so drink/snack service wasn't as often. Flight attendants were minimally invasive for safety belt checks. Food was decent. For the price I paid, at the last minute, I cannot complain."
Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Pros: "Excellent all around. AFAIK no other airlines offers the 5 course meal Eva does in business. The seats are spacious reverse herringbones. Crew is friendly, and service efficient. Anyone coming from a Western carrier would be impressed."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is a bit weak. Doesn’t bother me as I bring my own entertainment, but may bother some."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "Staffs are all very polite and well mannered"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment options, overall smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "Lots of kids screaming and running around the plane."

Pros: "Entertainment was nice, food was good. When asked for a second blanket, it was given to me shortly after, washrooms were great"
Cons: "The flight attendent did not let me move to an available seat but the next two people who asked were allowed. I was very uncomfortable and freezing the whole time."
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: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."
Cons: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Pros: "There’s a reason Qatar Airline is one of the top 10 airlines! Other airlines feed you pretzels and charge you for a blanket. Qatar feeds you numerous times throughout the flight and everything is as great as travel today can be."
Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"

Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted. Pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food The cabin temperature was close to freezing on the GOi-DOH international flight. No blankets provided when asked for blankets was told by the Indian air hostess on board the Qatar Airways flight that there is a shortage of blankets and they had to give children first Flight was at 3:50 am at this early tme pls provide blankets for all specially if it is freezing"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
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,"
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: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides."
Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."

Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."
Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."

Pros: "Yes & yes"
Pros: "Entertainment system is nice with recent movies and many other selections."

Cons: "The premium economy cabin configuration - it was a full flight, I was seated at the right-hand side of the cabin, and the toilet is at the left, and it was not easy and having to step on people's feet to go to the tooilet."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused a lot of problems and charges for us"
Pros: "Small leg room, seat don't decline enough,"
Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"
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: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"
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"

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."
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."
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."
Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
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."
Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"
Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"

Cons: "For a long international travel, there is nothing bad to say. They are superb!"
Cons: "Turkish airlines from Istanbul to Nairobi Announcement for medical personnel or doctor to come help. We pushed the button and the flight attendant came to our row. We unbuckled and we’re ready to get up and he said “ I have an elderly woman but first I need to see your license. In shock we said you need the license for us to be able to help? He said unfortunately that is our policy. I happen to have mine because I brought it along for the medical mission. I showed it to him then he gave some detail still not allowing us to see the person that needed attention:"

Cons: "Passport Control at Ataturk International was a nightmare with hundreds of people ahead of us in the queue. No Police to secure the area, so people rushed the line pushing us aside and jumped the queue, this happened repeatedly. I would advise people NOT to fly into this airport and expect to make your connecting flight, because it doesn't play out well at all. We were in line for 2 hours and witnessed people pushing, shoving, yelling at strangers and generally acting like animals. I found the whole experience highly disturbing."

Pros: "It seems like the company and crew go above and beyond for its passengers. Even those in cabin. We still get treated like first class. That's awesome."
Pros: "This was the best coach experience I've ever had. Food was great, tv screens were large, little bags with earplugs, slippers... were provided. Other airlines could take some pointers on how to treat passengers on long, overseas flights."

Cons: "The airplane was old, seats were uncomfortable. Ataturk staff, Turkish Airline ground staff is so HORRIBLE, we are never traveling with Turkish Airline again."
Cons: "I travelled in Business Class from Istanbul to Chicago. The service was not at all impressive and the crew were not very helpful. I asked for water and champagne with my dinner. Champagne never arrived, even after I asked for it again. My half-full glass of water was taken away halfway through dinner with no explanation and never replaced. I asked for water five times before I was finally brought a bottle of water over 30 minutes later when they were being passed around to everyone. Meanwhile, the two flight attendants I asked for water walked by several times picking up trash... not sure what was so difficult about bringing me a glass of water."
Pros: "Very little. I had heard that the food was better than United but I do not believe it is now that I have made six legs of travel and two of them over 13 hours."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines basically give minimal benefit to Star Alliance Gold members. Access to the lounge was given finally after I produced my physical Gold card even though I gave them my UA number. There are no ticketing agents in the Istanbul Airport within the secured area. I was not comfortable going outside security and then back again through security to upgrade my ticket. Agents at Turkish Airlines CIP NOT helpful."
Pros: "I had an idea of what Turkish Airlines was going to be like and was totally wrong. I was on Turkish airlines. They have excellent food, very good friendly service, even real silverware. I got a full meal on both a two hour and a four hour flight."

Pros: "The service, food, efficiency"

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."
Pros: "Spaced seats, kind crew"
Pros: "All very nice"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized."
Pros: "There was free movies to watch along with a travel bag."
Cons: "The food options were not good for vegetarians or vegans."
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work and the crew did not do anything to try to fix it"
Cons: "I did online check in the day before, but the planes switched. wouldn't you just try to keep people in the same relative spot rather than having everyone repick the seats?"
Pros: "The Turkish Air staff were very patient and accommodating to the Nigerian passengers around me, many of whom seemed to not know the norms of travelling internationally. They were patient and calm, never losing their cool when the passengers were demanding or spoke negatively towards them. I applaud the Turkish Air staff for their flexibility."
Cons: "Travelling with Nigerians."
