Very poor customer service Airport staff has no compassion Hotel stay was worst ever in my life Very rude hotel staff No food provided during hotel stay Flight connected delayed for 6 hours on outbound flight and missed connection due to flight delay on inbound flight

I got confused about flight time and day missed my flight and rescheduled it for another day they charged me again $260. Even I tried to call the airline 4 hours before nobody answered me . I don’t have time now to fight this case but I think it’s not fair…

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "If 5 pounds is over to figure it out and go thru and next time will doit Wright"
Cons: "Seats were torn and adjustments were malfunctional. No drinks were offered. Wifi did not work either."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Baggage payments n information"
Pros: "It was ontime"
Cons: "Plane dirty toilets disgusting, much to warm in cabin, very tight seats and Turkish doesn’t enforce their carryon luggage regulations do boarding takes ages"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "More space and room"
Pros: "Food, clean plane, Nice staff"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the best"
Pros: "Nice"
Pros: "The food was good. The staff very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Temperature way too warm"
Cons: "Very poor boarding conditions. The board only said "proceed to gate". Once at the gate, there was not one single boarding announcement. People next to the representatives started to get up and everyone else followed."
Pros: "Getting Home"
Cons: "Everything the seats were so close to the other seat forget it they Reclined. No service at all one bottle of water for about 6 hours they never passed by once. Flt. Att.’s were nice but no training no customer service. Like cattle I just want to forget the trip"
Pros: "The Turkish Airlines flight attendants are some of the sweetest people you can meet. Good souls and extremely dedicated to customer service."
Cons: "First, the Boeing Executives need to be punished by having to fly in the Economy section of their airplanes. Second, Turkish Airlines (a wonderful company) must impose hygiene requirements for their passengers. I sat next to a man that had insane body odor and when I let the Flight Attendant know she kindly reseated me... It was great until I saw the poor woman who took my place ALSO asked to be reseated due to the man's smell! Unfortunately, I was reseated in the middle of the row, which apparently is by Boeing design, none of the middle seats recline. Who makes an aircraft that handles long (13 hour) hauls with seats that do not recline and are too narrow for the average adult? It was such a painful and uncomfortable 13 hour flight. To add insult to injury, the plane was delayed and I missed my connection and had to sit in Istanbul airport for almost 8 hours."
Pros: "Fantastic journey no problems at all thanks kayak....."
Pros: "never go to turkey only few places are famous caz holiday but over all people are so selfish u can find the right place to eat or spend over night and all flight are always late when try to find out they always says on thier own language not even english we don’t care have missed my tow flight and couldn’t find anyone to talk as responeble person don’t got to turkey all pay ur money to some where better you can enjoy"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good personal movie choices"
Cons: "Taking a bus to plane"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"
Pros: "The security checks to board the plane were extensive and there was potential for the situation to be very stressful, but the personnel handled themselves very well under the pressure and stayed calm."
Pros: "Almost nothing specially the flight from Dhaka, If I known that the level of business class is like that, I would have bought economy"
Pros: "Their water was fine."
Cons: "They purposefully do not update their delays, which are frequent and widespread. They do this so their percentage on time looks better. Both my flights were over an hour delayed but Turkish Airline refused to update the status of the flight. They both came up as “on time”. My driver at my destination therefore waited an additional hour for me and I was charged 90 additional euros. The flight said it was on time online and at the gate it also read “on time.”"
Pros: "Enjoyed the service! Clean bathrooms with lotion! Good silverware for eating and nice tea!"
Cons: "USB did not work! Front of plane was boiling whereas back of plane was freezing. My friend was so hot she was sick many times because of the hotness of the plane."
Pros: "Crew, food, and beverages given were all excellent."
Pros: "The food is not bad, and the crew was good. The in flight entertainment selections were also good."
Cons: "The seats are too small to recline for someone who is about 185cm tall. I was not able to sleep, in spite of the late hour of the flight. Had a one hour layover in Istanbul, and the gates were at opposite sides of the crowded airport, which made the connection difficult."
Pros: "Best airline food . Great selection of movies And free drinks to boot"
Pros: "Good service, nice plane, comfortable"
Cons: "Took forever to clear out trays after meal. Istanbul airport was not nice, bathrooms wee disgusting and little to no air conditioning in airport"
Pros: "Nothing, sorry!"
Cons: "The middle seat that I got. The first 30min the plane was super hot plus it was very hot outside. When I boarded the plane, I asked if there were any exit row seats open. I was told no. I sat down 5 rows or so behind the exit. 15 min later the attendant started moving children from the exit rows to different seats. I raised my hand to be placed in the exit row but was ignored. The flight attendants were slow and rude. I asked for two white wines with my food, and was looked at with disgust. I was told that I can have one, and when I finished it, I could have the second one. I said ok. Well 30 MINUTES later I touch the attendant button and no one came. Finally after 5 min someone came to take my order. She quickly came back and said they were out of wine. This was a very disappointing flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "When I check-in for flight from Rome to Istanbul and Istanbul to Los Angeles, only the first leg of trip was confirmed correctly. For the leg from Istanbul to Los Angeles I confirmed a window seat when I checked-in online. However, when I arrived at the airport I has a middle seat and could not change it and the 15 hour flight was miserable. I also asked to be upgraded to business class and told it would be $3,500.00, which was ridiculous."
Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has an excellent entertainment system"
Cons: "They used to have more legroom"
Cons: "Airline should advise during check in- especially on line check in there are no electronics on board. This caused significant delay and annoyance for about 100+ passengers"
Pros: "Comfortable plane Good food Friendly service"
Pros: "Great seat (3A), great service and food. Very friendly crew. Entertainment is great with plenty of movies."
Cons: "Check in in Istanbul was long and confusing due to new safety measures. I had 4 different passport checks with one pat down search and carry on search. Not enough time to even enjoy the Turkish air lounge. However I do. appreciate the safety measures and the effort that come with it. I rather be safe than sorry. The security personnel was very friendly."
Pros: "Luggage left in Istanbul due to short connjection was delivered to my home the same evening. Check in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Seats too close together on A330 airplane, entertainment console difficult to use and flight attendent did not have patience to explain how to use it, ran out of main course and remaining chicken course was too spicy to eat, flight from Singapore was delayed in takeoff making it very difficult to make connecting flight,"
Pros: "I like the movies"
Cons: "boarding should be handled better than what i saw at Istanbul. a man checking every ticket manually which cause many long line and waiting to get to the bas"
Pros: "My JFK to IST flight on Oct 21st, the plane was nice and new. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was up to date. The food on this particular flight was good."
Cons: "According to the Turkish Airlines site they offer free accommodations to passengers who have over 10 hr layover in Istanbul if you are an economy passenger. I was under this impression that I would fall under this category because when I initially booked the ticket (JFK - IST - LIS and return LIS - IST - JFK) my layover back to JFK was 18 hours. Two weeks prior to leaving for my trip I received a notification saying that the layover will be extended to 34 hours. Seeing that my layover was extended, I thought that Turkish Airline would offer me accommodation for both nights. When I arrived to IST (10:30pm local time) I went to the Turkish Airline transfer desk in which they said they would not allow me to have the 2 nights accommodation. After about an hour and half of discussion they could only offer me one night accommodation and changed my flight to an earlier flight. The attendant who was serving me told me to wait by the kiosk until my name was called. At the 30 minute mark I tried to ask another kiosk attendant to see what the status was and he replied back in a very rude manner saying he has no idea what I'm referring to and that essentially was not his problem. After another hour and half of waiting and seeing other frustrated passengers going to the transfer desk and not being helped, I went on the queue to see what the status of my ticket was. They finally gave me my ticket and at this point it was close to 1am. Thankfully I did research before hand and under the assumption that I was going to spend a day in Istanbul, spent $20 and got a Turkish visa prior to my travel, which according the the turkish consulate website that you can no longer get a visa while in the airport. I finally reached the airport hotel at 2:30am but the airport shuttle was to arrive in 4 hours to shuttle all the passengers back. So not only did I deal with a rude staff, but I paid $20 to be in Turkey for about 4 hours in an airport hotel."
Pros: "Great value for the money. Excellent customer service."
Pros: "Friendliness toward kids was really good."
Cons: "The movies didn't work until an hour after the flight started. Really."
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "The movie selection was great. Flight times were right on track. No unnecessary delays. Food was good too."
Cons: "The incredibly long layover. 9+ hours. We were all cramped in this incredibly small space like sardines. Please don't decrease seat space more! Very uncomfortable seats. I could not get my seat to recline at all. Service was very slow. Especially clean-up of food trays."
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "uncomfortable for a long flight. could not get into a comfortable sleeping position for a long while."
Pros: "overall the flight was good. but it is unbelievable that someone else sat on my seat and the crew could not sort it out."
Cons: "the ground handling was not good."
Pros: "Friendly Staff Good Food On Time"
Pros: "Great food and crew"
Pros: "I liked the entire trip. The timing was perfect, service inside the aircraft and the pilots were all proffisional. So, every thing moved very well"
Cons: "My suitcase was broken and I don't know in which airport that has happened."
Cons: "Both my bags came back damaged--- one had the handle ripped off and the other the TSA approved look was jammed."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Pros: "On time and pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Rouge flights are not comfortable no room for your legs and on a four and half flight very uncomfortable. Soft drinks are free but not even a bag of nuts."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"
