Overall VERY impressed. Food was absolutely top notch, service was good. We transferred in Istanbul and this is a gorgeous airport. It's a bit far from the city but everything else was great. Turkish Airlines Airlines put us up on a hotel since we had a long layover. Very impressed and would certainly look forward to another flight with them. 10/10 and the price was right
Long trip not enough snacks for the kids , crew are not very helpful
Pros: "Turkish airlines is reaaly good"

Cons: "Foot rests in economy - better ventilation options airflow"
Pros: "nice that food was provided."
Cons: "boarding was delayed, then we were also delayed on the tarmac. some out of the plane/crew's control but after a long flight from US, this felt extra long."
Cons: "Hi, Your company lost one of my check-in bags. I am in Bucharest now, still waiting for my bag. Nobody knows where my bag is. Please, help find it! Under Doinita M Toranzo's name, big red bag! under Thank you!"
Pros: "everything . also very spacoius restrooms. it deserves vest airtline"
Cons: "hmmm the flight is slightlt longer . hopefully one day soon there will be ditect flight to Malta"
Pros: "Enhanced security screening is great."
Cons: "Their website reports INCORRECT departure times for their flights!!! BEWARE I travel frequently and Turkish Airlines is posting WRONG information about their flight departures, causing people (like myself) to miss their flights!!!"
Pros: "MOST OF THE MEALS ARE VERY GOOD EXCEPT PASTA DISHES."
Cons: "PASTA DISHES ...MAIN AND SNACK ARE TRULY BOTTOM OF THE BARREL. TASTELESS JUNK. WHY NOT FIND SOME OTHER DISHES IF YOU CANNOT MAKE PASTA EDIBLE"
Cons: "Very limited selection of movies."
Cons: "Haphazard boarding"
Pros: "Overall it was ok. I enjoyed the leg space."
Cons: "I suppose it's just a matter of different manners"
Cons: "they delayed the flight so i lost my checked in connection"
Pros: "Quality of Service"
Pros: "the entertainment options were plenty and the crew was very warm"
Cons: "The leg room was not sufficient"
Pros: "I'm still in turkey. Never flying your airline again delayed missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything it was awful. Late"
Pros: "Great food, great service and a wonderful experience in business class compared with most of the big European airlines. Will definitely fly again Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "The business lounge in Istanbul was a great facility, but a little bit of upkeep will be a plus."
Pros: "the staff was so polite and helpful thank you"
Pros: "Service-crew, food, entertainment variety; good value and connection options"
Cons: "1. Seat did not seem to maintsin incline. NOT an issue out bound. 2. Consider it takes 11 + 2-3 ours to transit from European locations. 3. Flight delayed 50 min"
Pros: "Staff were all amazing, meals pretty good for airline food, plenty of tv, movie and music options to stay occupied for the long trip."
Pros: "Everyone did a great job handling the new ban of all large electronics. This new rule imposed by the US is completely ridiculous and rather illogical; however, Turkish Airlines did a great job of making it as minimally burdensome as possible."
Cons: "Splitting passengers up into male and female lines in order to be processed before boarding the flight seemed to create a lot of anxiety for passengers traveling with their significant others. I would advise figuring out a way to efficiently process groups without having to split them up by gender."
Pros: "Food is decent. Entertainment is above par."
Cons: "This was 2nd out of three Turkish flights I've taken that was delayed causing me to run to catch my connection. Also, there was some sort of dilemma or drama with the in flight staff. It took an hour at least from when the drink cart came out until I was actually served a glass of water. The staff kept discussing something at the cart, then leaving the cart, then returning for another discussion, etc..."
Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."
Pros: "Food is good; service is good. Boarding times were later than expected and left late but didn't arrive lat. Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "more food options would be good; also include decaf coffee or green tea as options"
Pros: "Crew was professional, pleasant"
Pros: "Safety and service"
Cons: "There was no ayran for drinks"
Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Pros: "Food, value"
Cons: "My personal tv did not work for the entire 11 hours flight"
Pros: "Crews were very good.On my trip from SF to Mumbai, I requested Veg food, it was confirmed by your office, but in flight me and my wife did not get veg food.For 13 hours we were left hungry. I did not get whatever I paid for. I want monitory compensation for that."
Cons: "As per the comments above"
Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."
Cons: "seats in economy far too close together ... nose to back of seat in front of me about 9 inches. when seat back was back."
Pros: "Turkish Airways service is very good -- good staff, clean airplane, attentive service"
Cons: "The airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Service was good, customer helping line was not that good"
Cons: "The worst part is food, they need to serve some good food for such long flight, Specially Istanbul to Islamabad and Islamabad to Istanbul, was the worst service and worst food , I will be think a lot to travel next time with turkish airline, due some bad service and food"
Cons: "The seat Screen did not work."
Pros: "they are good thank you very mush"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."
Pros: "Despite all other issues I got to Vienna on time."
Cons: "- there was a gate change less than half an hour before boarding, which was not announced via speaker or on the screen in the previous gate - therefore most people were still in the previous gate and only because one of the passengers realized and communicated the change everyone else became aware of it as well -> then everyone ran to the new gate, which did not have enough seating and where children were crying because they did not understand the hectic - On board - just before departure - two families got into an argument and yelled at each other and the crew. They were very loud and aggressive. - Usually I love the food Turkish Airlines serves, but this time I had dry and oily pasta and a very strange and too sweet chocolate mousse. I did not enjoy eating this and it did not taste fresh at all. - There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The bread service"
Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."
Pros: "enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and on-time"
Cons: "Seats too close together. Also -- and VERY important -- they are so close together that they shouldn't be allowed to tilt back and press further into the person n the back's knees. NOTE: Turkish Airlines is, by far, not alone with this problem. Airlines have jammed too many seats in the plane. Increase fares a tad and give more knee space."
