Pros: "Flying Business with them couldn’t have been better. The 10 hours flight didn’t feel that long thanks to the first class service"
Cons: "Th flight from Istanbul to Saint Petersburg though was in an old Airbus 319-100 that should be retired or upgraded soon. Unfortunately I lost my Vaccination Card boarding this last flight. Is there any way I could get it back?"
Pros: "Crew was super 5 stars, airplane 0 stars, narrow and ugly, change planes , who gave any star to that Airline don't belief ."
Cons: "Bigger seats for 10 hour flights"
Cons: "Good food and entertainment. Flight started in delay as usual with Turkish"
Cons: "If they use the new business class seat."
Pros: "The crew and the food were amazing! The seats in Business Class were bery comfortable."
Pros: "The flight itself was good. Turkish airlines provides some nice amenities; which I don't actually use. But they're nice."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on its scheduled day. So I had to wait an extra day to get home."
Cons: "Food had only beef options"
Pros: "What did you like?yes"
Cons: "I get it. Delays happen. But they should be communicated, and ground staff shouldn’t just turn their backs on anxious passengers who have no idea what is happening."
Cons: "Had a missed flight due to weather delay. Made multiple calls to customer service. Multiple times the solution suggested was to go to a local Turkish Airlines office. How many companies are asking to visit a office for service in 2018? Issues were not still resolved. Aircraft seats were worn out and dirty on BOS to Ist and Ist to Miami route."
Pros: "Entertainment package"
Cons: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Cons: "They are not considerate at all . It was a pain till they find Me another flight. The flight won’t take off till the next day And the lay over in Los Angeles is 7hrs . It’s a 2 days flight. They didn’t even try to take the time to find me a sooner flight because there were other upset customers waiting. So disappointed on how poor the help desk at Turkish airline."

Pros: "Dinner served was very good, American Airlines need to learn from foreign airlines."
Cons: "Comfort of the seats."
Pros: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had internationally"
Cons: "The heavy turbulence but, that's beyond their control"
Cons: "had to go 6 times through securety check, had to get out of the airport, and then a bus had to take all the passangers to another terminal. it seemed as the airport staff was not aware that there is a connection flight."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "The entertainment system touch is poor. Unable to use when it does not respond correctly"
Pros: "wonderful staff."
Cons: "there was a delay we were not told about, we left an hour late, but we're not told anything, this is problematic as you pass through a second round of security to sit by the gate and can't even go to the rest room with out repeating the check. the landing was very rough but no ones falt"
Pros: "The flight was good. The food tasted great. They had some good movies I haven't seen yet. The flight attendants were constantly up and down the isles either giving you something or taking away trash. The leg room was sufficient."
Cons: "The customer service on the phone and in person was completely unprofessional, rude and a bit uneducated. They yelled at me when I asked them "is there anything yall can do to fix this?". And then in person I watched them get out of their seats and yell at this older woman."
Pros: "The comfort of the seats, entertainment, & food were great as always. The only Turkish Airlines flight I had during this trip that was not delayed, however needed to be due to the previous flight. The crew did hold the flight for all of us from the delayed flight from Athens."
Cons: "An elderly woman was booked in a window seat and she insisted she take my aisle seat without any additional available aisle seats. However, this would be better handled when she requested for assistance during her booking process. The crew should've anticipate her needs and booked an aisle seat, or even be the ones to ask me or another passenger if I would be willing to trade. I was placed on the spot and no courtesy was shown to me. My legs were completely swollen and in pain because I wasn't able to stand periodically. I too booked my flight early and requested my seats appropriately for my health needs."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Steward refused my wife beer or wine saying he was doing food while still serving other male customers alcoholic beverages, steward never told passenger in front of my wife to put up his seat at mealtime. Seat comfort and service in economy are below other airlines."
Pros: "Every thing was excellent"
Pros: "Almost everything from boarding till landing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that people need to wait in the bus shuttle too long. It's just better to let people wait at the gate and ride them to the plane when it's 100% ready."
Pros: "Crew did their utmost"
Cons: "Customer service said that I was confirmed on my new flight, after the snowstorm in NY caused a cancellation, and that I had a Kosher meal. Neither were true. Had to spend over an hour at the airport to get a seat and almost missed the flight. Something is wrong with the customer service."
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. the food was very tasty. i LOVE the little bag with slippers, socks and tooth brush and paste and other amenities."
Cons: "i got lucky and had multiple seats to myself, and it was still tight. i can imagine if i had only one seat i would be in a lot of pain coming off the flight. the bathrooms are very tight too,"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "1- bad service 2- bad attitudes 3- Always DELAYS 4- lost the bag"
Pros: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Pros: "I liked the aircraft. They were fairly new and well maintained. New inflight entertainment and movies. Fairly spacious for a medium sized person."
Cons: "I feel the food could have been better."
Cons: "It took 4 days to leave Arusha. I know there were other flight options on other airlines (e.g. Emirates) but Turkish wouldn't book us. I ended up eating the cost of a whole separate trip because I didn't get back until Saturday afternoon, despite communicating this multiple times to Turkish."
Pros: "Excellent service, food, entertainment & Aircraft! Need quicker updates in monitors - seem to redundant"
Cons: "My logged didn't arrived to Amman I received one and I miss one TAG number TK633655"
Pros: "Nice to have a meal on a short flight. Flight attendants were very cordial and their service was efficient. The shuttle service from the gate to the plane was very quick such that everyone was boarded in a timely manner."
Cons: "There was no entertainment media available. Flight may have been too short for entertainment equip plane."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"
Cons: "Basically the wifi doesn't work on these long haul flights. It's either not connected or extremely slow. I finally gave up and didn't bother"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were lovely. I did request a window seat at check in and the clerk said she had done it, however I was stuck in the middle of two people 16J so it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Two babies screened the whole way to Los Angeles I was ready to kill them. Babies on long haul flights should be strapped to the wings. it was ridiculous/annoying. No vegetarian option on the flight to LA which would have been nice. However the food is really good and I loved the eggs for breakfast."
Pros: "AS AN AIRLINE IWILL NEVER FLY AGAIN BECAUSE INSTEAD OF 5.5 HRS FROM STW TO ATH MY TRIP LASTED 14.5 HRS.THE CREW ON BOTH AIR PLANES EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Good service. Food was very good. Roomy seats and very good in flight entertainment system. Made the 12 hour flight very comfortable."
Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Turkish airline excellent"
Pros: "Very professional and helpful crew, food was above what was expected, and even during my short 1.5 hour flights to and from Athens from Istanbul, we were fed meals! I felt very safe and well-taken care of. I will fly Turkish Airlines wherever I go! Çok teşekkürler!!"
Cons: "Smal seats, little leg room."
Pros: "There was an amazing chef that specially made a meal for me since I am a vegetarian and there was not an option to order a vegetarian meal when I checked in."
Pros: "This rating is for a one hour flight from Istanbul to Ankara. Even so, Turkish Air provided a meal, not just a beverage. Seats were typical coach size, so a bit crowded but not bad. Crew were pleasant."

Don’t ever fly with Lufthansa

Pros: "We were the only customers in business class, which was nice. Lots of attention from the crew, and food was good."
Cons: "Ummm, THAT was "business class"? Same seats as economy, with middle seat blocked off. Limited recline, no entertainment, no comfort seats. Nice meal, nice drinks, nice service...but I'm a little stunned that a European airline would call this kind of seating "business class". Only thing that separated it from economy class was a curtain, and middle seats blocked off."
Pros: "Less hand bags, a lot of people trying to put their hand luggage ans there was no space"
Cons: "Controll the quantity of packages per person"
Cons: "We had a three hour departure delay in Munich"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "having to come back from vacation!!"
Pros: "The flight was 1.5 hours late that almost caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. The service and plane was just OK."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was just fair. The plane was small and bathrooms options limited"
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"
Pros: "Crew, food and comfort was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost my luggage . I am in Madrid with no luggage."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Didn’t like the food"
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "Ended up flying out of London Heathrow, not Munich do to the cancelled Lufthansa flights. Very stressful and exhausting but did get back the same day as scheduled."
Pros: "Great entertaining system"
Pros: "Good variety of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "We were in last row of our section of the plane and space was very cramped, especially for my 6'1" husband. It was not a very physically comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Crew were good with serving food and drinks before our flight . We are sitting on aircraft for 1.5 hrs before departure stuff was excellent to keep us inform."
Pros: "service was very good,"
Pros: "Loved having a real glass and real stainless fork and spoon rather than plastics. Liked the better quality (heavier) blankets and pillows. Loved the cleanliness of the plane. Impressed with the space of the Premium seats even though I did not have one. Loved having warm bread/roll with evening meal. Seat head rests could be raised to help taller people."
Cons: "Headphones in the back of the seats were two pronged and did not fit the display. Attendants offered appropriate headphones at first of flight, but I did not understand what was going on. Seats were a little hard. Some of the mesh pockets on the backs of seats were not properly attached at the bottom and items placed in the them would fall through."
Pros: "There was plenty of room, great staff, no worries whatsoever."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; food was adequate"
Cons: "Seats seem a bit close to one another, with little knee room"
Pros: "Outstanding service in cabin service, on time, legroom in economy."
Cons: "Seats a little hard. Very good instead of great."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"
Pros: "Seats, crow attitude, on-time flight"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "We checked in online into row 12 without any error messages about the fact that kids cannot sit there. When we arrived at the airport we were given different e.seats and we could not sit together with our kids."
Cons: "No food, mixed up seating, no entertainment"
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Pros: "Getting off! Ok, i have to use 50 characters... i also liked the check-in counter staff in Orlando."
Cons: "I have flown on many budget airlines that were more comfortable than this flight. Hard uncomfortable chairs with a lack of leg space (and I'm only 1.70m). The food was poor and the service was worse- i pressed my call button for a drink mid-flight and it kept getting cancelled without a steward coming. Finally, after pressing the call button about 10 times a steward came and begrudgingly brought me a drink. Choice of movies was poor."
Cons: "Crying children!"
Pros: "all are O.k"
Cons: "delays"
Pros: "Awesome crew and service! I would highly recommend flying with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "I got 2 vegetarian meals on this flight. The first one was so mushy that it induced my gag reflex. I managed one bite and no more. The second meal had some ravioli that was much better but still was heated unevenly. But at that point I was so hungry that I ate it anyway. The boarding was chaotic because all economy rows boarded at the same time"
Pros: "Love the variety of entertainment options on such a long flight. The food is always so good, you make me feel so cared for."
Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "The on plane entertainment wasn't up to par. Not a lot of selection for sitcoms, if they had a sitcom it was only 1 episode. 12 hour flight I didn't have much to watch after the first 6 hours. Food was ok."
Pros: "crew interest and flight amenities; excellent meals"
Cons: "not applicable"
Cons: "Asked hor wheelchair assistance on the 3 connecting flight ... Never got one Weighing the carry on is ridiculous! Had to tortow away stuff because a couple pound over British allows up to 50 pounds on a carry on Asked to switch seats and hot terrible service Tried to get boarding pass 24 prior could not They lost my luggage got it 3 days later And other things that I was not happy about"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Plane was smelly and cramped for space. Air vents did not work."
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"

Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."

Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
