Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Every thing amazing"
Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The Ground crew didn’t know how to add a bag"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was late and they change the number of the gate without telling the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "good company"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food and entertainment selections, care package/pillow/blanket provided, comfortable flight"
Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."
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: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."
Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"

Pros: "Friendliness, attentiveness, food, clean bathrooms, and great wine selection. I would fly Turkish Airlines anywhere!!!"
Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."
Pros: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so that's it!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"

Pros: "Loved the leg room and movie/live TV selection"
Pros: "Had emergency exit row with plenty of leg room"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."
Pros: "The food was great, had a chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."

Pros: "Very good food. Quite an extensive movie selection. Staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "It takes a bit long to complete all processes"
Cons: "The service is slow and flight crew do not go out of their way to connect or provide extra service. In fact they"
Pros: "Smooth. Polite. Delicious"
Cons: "we never ended up taking the flight. delays in istanbul had everything backed up. the customer service was entirely ineffective...no lines, no plan, no information. after waiting forever with zero assistance, we bypassed the airline completely and booked a new flight in order to make sure we were able to return to work on time."
Pros: "The crew, leg room with seats! The flight crew was extremely nice!!!!"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant....I wouldn’t change anything."
Cons: "Food is a joke"
Pros: "Comfort of A380 Legs space"
Cons: "Terrible Connecto in Frankfurt We had to run for 15mn to get our Singapore flight with no help from Lufthansa: poor service"
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable plan. crew, at least in our section of the plan was minimally attentive."
Cons: "crew could have been more attentive. other then the basic services no one made any effort to see if we wanted anything else."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in time took a very long time with a boarding pass."
Pros: "I was seated in Row 18 (comfort economy?) and my seat was relatively comfortable. The cabin was clean and pleasant. The crew was friendly, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "My family was seated in the economy section and their seats were extremely uncomfortable. I had the pasta dish for dinner and it was mushy to the point of being inedible."
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Spacious seating, easy access to charging plug and good movies."
Cons: "Boarding is never fun, why not do back first?"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "Good, friendly crew"
Pros: "Great hospitality"
Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Getting a text alert so I didn't waste my time going to the airport"
Cons: "The fact that Sunday morning my flight was cancelled Saturday night with no apparent reason or explanation given."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Food was great. Good movies. Friendly staff!"
Cons: "The television screens were very old and discolored."
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Pros: "Water bottle when we arrived at our seat."
Cons: "Paying 8 euros for premium movies AND if you wanted earphones (I had my own), you would need to pay 2 euros more. Excessive. Choice of movies was rather limited even in premium. In regular, it was quasi non-existent (2)."
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "The flight was on time enough that I comfortably got to my connecting flight. It was still late and some other passengers were anxious they wouldn't get theirs. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seats were regular seats with the middle seat unused. The "meal" on this early flight (had to leave the house around 4:30am to get to it) was light. I'm glad I had the time to stop at the business lounge first. I don't recall any entertainment system, which isn't a big issue on this short flight."
Pros: "made sure we didnt miss our connecting flight to denver after flight from paris was delayed. met us at landing and took us to immigration and gate"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "On time, nice staff"
Pros: "We were delayed but better that than bump around in a thunderstorm. Food good"
Cons: "Would like to see more selection in movies"
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Pros: "The flight was only about half full. Plenty of space, room to nap. Captain kept you advised and seemed to change altitude to avoid turbulence."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Seats are old and worn. Pitch is Ok. BEG is bad, at least if you connect there to the JFK flight. You have to go to different desks to verify passport (!) and pass additional security control where they don't let you carry in any tax free purchases you make at your originating airport although you never leave the transit area. Boarding is chaotic with no staging."
Pros: "The actual takeoff and landing with this airline is usually smooth"
Cons: "Airline is always late with no layover time making journeys stressful. The food and drink is only available for pay. There is no entertainment. There is a small snack which has been expired cookies on all flights I’ve experienced, and the staff seems reluctant to provide it. Boarding involved making everyone wait standing up for more than twenty five minutes corralled into as corner."
Pros: "Comfortable, on time, smooth boarding"
Pros: "It was okay, I mean, for a short-haul flight, nothing more is required. Except for accuracy."
Cons: "They should finally replace old ATR-72."
Cons: "Check in was slow but not crowded and they lost my and other 20 passengers’ suitcases! No information was given about why and we still don’t have any information. AirSerbia does not respond do emails or calls."
Pros: "the boarding was smooth, the bus to the plane wasn't crowded and the plane was flying low so you could enjoy the sceneries and still get cell phone reception."
Cons: "the overhead compartment was a bit small and there was almost no leg room but both of my flights were short. I booked my flight through an app and it didn't give me any checked baggage so I tried to modify my booking through airserbia website but I couldn't so I ended up paying 60 euros for my bag at the airport."
Pros: "Food was fantastic. Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "This flight is apparently consistently late"
Pros: "The plane was an airbus, nothing to rave about nothing also to complain about. It got us there safely and relatively speaking on time after a later inbound arrival."
Cons: "The process of check in was terrible could not do so on line at least in Berlin. It is possible elsewhere in the system. Long and slow line for check in and then long and slow line for passport control and security, but we survived it. Advice is arrive early, you will need the time."
Cons: "The worst airline ever. CUSTOEMR SERVICE IS AN UNKNOWN WORD TO THEM. I WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE AGAIN AND YOU SHOULD REMOVE THEM FROM YORU PROPOSALS."

Pros: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Cons: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crew attitude , allowing oversized baggage in the craft, no food service though it's not LCC."
Pros: "On time flights both directions"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges (40-60 euro each way per bag), so buy the ticket that includes the baggage"

Pros: "Quick and short flight. Plane was clean and comfortable"

Cons: "Arms rest are pretty small"
Pros: "Seating was excellent good leg room for a tall person like myself. Service on flight wad great. Boarding and checkin were a bit of a mess but were quickly resolved"
Cons: "They were very unpolite. They completely ignored multiple requests. I was ignored and not even asked get a drink (I just needed some water). They said they offer the food and drinks to others because they paid. Money wasn’t an issues. Besides I wasn’t even offered a drink neither asked for money. I found it really rude."
Cons: "Same moves for months.no new choices Small sandwich for lunch, not near Seet in front of me broken an d. In my nees"
Pros: "Me gustó que tienen un buen sistema de check-in, embarque y desembarque."
Cons: "El avión era un ATR-72 algo viejo, no era cómodo por dentro. Tampoco me gustó la atención de la tripulación, no pasaron por mi puesto ofreciendo el mísero vaso de agua que daban. En otras aerolíneas de este estilo por lo menos dan café."
Pros: "Title says it all"
Cons: "Title says it all"
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "the Air Serbia magazine was the only entertainment available."
Pros: "It was great experience clean, new plane, smilung staff, flight on time. Quick boarding although the flight was full. Much nicer than Swiss"
Cons: "Afrer a day I am still in Pittsburgh!!!"
Pros: "Service was friendly and we were served drinks and a sandwich. The view from the window was good. Arrival a bit before scheduled time."
Cons: "It's a bus transfer to and from the terminal and the boarding bus transfer takes too long to load. I don't like the passport checks at the boarding gate - inefficient and inconsiderate."
Cons: "My luggage was lost."
Cons: "Not a orginized airline at all!! I flew my whole trip with the same 50+ people. We had 2 connecting flights, all the stops that we did was always behind schdual, staff was nice but late! the worst part is, our final destination 20+ people lost there luggage including me! My dad and aunt flew with are serbia aswell and they also lost there luggage..! My dad and aunt got there luggage after 1-2days after ther flight but its a big inconvenience i have no update on my luggage yet hopeing it will be here tomorrow."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and advised passengers they can move around once boarding completed."
Cons: "The flight was operated by a avery small plane, so we were advised to leave the carryons outside to be put in the hold. Once on the plane, I thought my bag would fit in the overhead bin. Also, was annoyed that flight attendants would approach you speaking Serbian, which I don't."
Pros: "The food was good as always, the crew is nice."
Cons: "It's not really comfortable, but I guess that's because of the plane model and the economy class, so not much to do there. Boarding was delayed, and they put too many people on the bus taking you from the gate to the plane. The entertainment system should have more content."
Pros: "On time, professional"
Cons: "food could be better"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Very responsive and real meal for short flight!"
Pros: "Attentive crew, decent business class amenities, food was hit and miss. The selection of domestic wines and spirits was okay."
Cons: "The incoming flight was delayed until next day, with no effort on behalf of Air Serbia to communicate this. No space left for reproach, no effort of any kind of compensation. Once on board, the staff were great and did their best to accommodate this business traveller. The return flight was standard on terms of food and service, nothing special, nothing bad. The checking was another story, with lots of confusion and missed opportunities to make a difference. Mixed bag, overall."
Cons: "Long Layovers"
Pros: "Good food, skillful pilot"
Pros: "traveler's assistance check in on time smooth flying. nice snacks"
Cons: "online check in is not available if starting out of Stuttgart !!!?"
Pros: "Huge legs space for economy class, great service!!!"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Pros: "Short flight. 50 minutes one way.there was no entertainment so I cannot comment on the entertainment."
Cons: "It was a propeller plane. It was very noisy. Our seat was number five. Next to the propeller. A lot of empty seats and we asked to be moved to a different seat but was not accommodated. I would suggest Providing earplugs to the passengers. On our return trip we were in route to. A little bit less noise, but still need your plugs. On our return trip the luggage took a long time to reach baggage claim, but 40 minutes. The flight was only 15 minutes long."
Pros: "Good company"
Cons: "The part of our luggage was lost when we landed in Ljublina but we got it next morning"
Pros: "Air Serbia has a great service and tasty menu"
Pros: "Good job"
Pros: "Food and comfort was good for the price."
Cons: "Had a horrible experience when my checked baggage was delayed on both my outward and return flights! And I got them after 2 day for the outward flight and after 3 days for the return flight. So that ruined my vacation. Very disappointed! :("
Pros: "Liked the blanket, the nice leather seats. I enjoyed the chicken actually and the breakfast roll."
Cons: "This is something that has happened to me on every flight/airline I have taken to India. I am sat next to some slightly older Indian nationals who I find inconsiderate. This again happened on this flight, the 'gent' next to me continually elbowed his way into my space, kicked me, fidgeted, pushed against me continually. when I asked him to stop kicking me and to move his feet back to under the seat in front of me, he tried to silence me as if I shouldn't be talking to him like that or that I had no right to be annoyed. I was in pain, couldn't sleep. He encroached into my space so that he could give his wife lots of space. Selfish. I do feel it's a cultural thing. It doesn't happen to me when I fly to other destinations and travel economy. I didn't feel safe at the end of the flight when it was taxing to the bay. Passengers turned on their phones the minute we hit the tarmac and were opening the overhead lockers and left them open even the plane was still moving at speed. I thought things were going to come crashing out. It just doens't feel save and controllled when fellow passengers do not follow instructions. I worry what would happen if there was an emergency."
Pros: "It was a good flight. nothing unusual."
Pros: "No customer service skills at all"
Cons: "Ukraine is great when it comes to taking your money, but when you have an issue or can't find your bag, they will not compensate you"
Pros: "Short layover"
Cons: "Airport staff cannot fix ticket issues Bag has been lost for over 2 weeks and customer relations office advised me to wait 3 months before any compensation is even considered. Had to pay extra $240 to get on the flight because on one was available to correct a ticketing mistake. Horrible airlines"
Pros: "Nice crew. Plan made it to the destination."
Cons: "Flight changed. Then late. My first experience could have been better."
Cons: "Terrible service and airline is unclear about services airline provides. Lots of hidden fees"
Pros: "Food was good. Some of the crew was very pleasant. 2 checked bags allowed with ticket price."
Cons: "Nicer staff especially in regards to baggage and helping people with different cultures/languages. They are beyond strict about baggage size. Nice to have endless movies to watch, but should be noted no individual movies. Unexpected fee for boarding pass and inability to check in online at airport."
Cons: "Bad airline"
Pros: "Nice friendly crew, fresh aircraft model, good ticket price"
Cons: "Boarding was sooooo long and slow. Bad shape of seats, I had really back ache while flying for 3 hours. I Had long trip through up the ocean for 9 hours right before that and I had no same problem"
Pros: "Speedy service and quick boarding."
Cons: "One of the crew hit and ran the food cart into my knee. Didn’t even bother apologizing."
Pros: "We waited in line and on the aircraft after boarding for an hour because we were waiting for flight documentation or something??? This should not happen, everyone knew when the flight was leaving and the airline should have all of this taken care of ahead of time."
Cons: "Is not comfortable plane also old .I never had again Ukrainem airlenes"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "I went to desk for check in and they told me l have to pay 15 euro because that l didn’t check in on line before l get to the airport. They wouldn’t check and give me boarding pass till l paid 15 euro. Horrible airline. After that they wanted to charge us for food and drinks on a international flight. Never again !!!!"
Cons: "They changed my flight to a different airline!!"
Pros: "See below."
Cons: "Starting off with checking in, it was packed. Hundreds of people squeezing into one line. It took such a long time to get through that the people at the end of the line were late catching the plane. Now to actually boarding the plane. None of this was anyone’s fault accept the actual passengers tat were being difficult HOWEVER there could have maybe been something done seeing that we left and hour and a half later than we should have because of said passengers. When you have a layover, that is an actual nightmare. Next, onto the layover. It was fine. Nothing bad happened on the flight itself. But here’s where it sucked. Everyone who flew from Paris to Lviv with a layover in Kiev lost their baggage. GREAT NEWS TO HEAR. I understand that this happens from time to time. But we were given hardly any answers as to when we would have our luggage back and we were all a part of a very important even where, oh I don’t know. Clothes would be nice to have. Anyway that’s it. Just a little chunk of our hellish travel day."
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "We were never notified that our flight had a 5 hour delay until we arrived to the airport. Additionally, the flight ended up being 7 hours late. There was no communication or accommodations, other than a free airplane meal. I missed my other transportation connections and there was no sympathy or compassion. I have flown across the world and never experienced such poor customer service and professionalism. I would NEVER fly with this airline ever again!"
Pros: "The UIA crews were very kind and attentive, responding to passengers in a matter of time :-)"
Cons: "Nor meals niether snacks of any kind, it was understandable due to extra expenses and economical issues the Airline faces. But I am sinserely appreciated UIA, its kind crews as well as Airport Boryspil Airport. Wish them all the best and success! I hope see you all on board soon :-)"
Pros: "Crew friendly I like Ukraine Airlines"
Cons: "Nothing compared to most Airlines I know"
Cons: "Service is terrible, nobody give you any information when we had a more than 8 hours delay. Flight attendants needs more training. Star with the smile"
Pros: "Great food and service .Very friendly personnel"
Cons: "The surprise hidden baggage charge of $60 for my bag. The surprise $25 charge because I forgot to check in online (I'm traveling to 23 cities and I forgot this time but $25? Really?)"
Cons: "THere was an unexpected extra charge for not having been able to do the airline check in through Internet."
Cons: "Both legs of the trip were delayed for more than an hour. One of the boarding staff was very rude and hate forigners ."
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Hidden charges: Usually, when you take international flights, one checked luggage is allowed. Here we had to pay extra EUR 100 per person to check in our luggage. It was not overweight, it appeared that our ticket included 0 checked pieces. We took a flight from Paris to Kiev, and I was thinking on the international flights one checked luggage is allowed. Also, there is a fee for printing boarding pass, which was also a surrise to me."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "I was booking a regular flight however, i was charged extra 50€ for one peice"
Pros: "I like it was 1 hour trip only."
Cons: "Was offered to pay 13 bucks to check in at the airport or to do it online muself. Not too sure if any other company offers that "service" Disrespect to their clients. Plus they lost my luggage and offered me to pick it up my self after 5 days. Is ok just 50 miles trip both ends on a taxi. Delivered it themselves onbthe 6th day."
Cons: "Rude costumer service back and forth Don't recommend at all"
Cons: "We couldn't fly because of serious health problem of my pregnant wife and no one cancelled our booking and even didn't provide partial refund. It is the worst customer service I've ever met."
Cons: "One hour delay without notice. Had a connecting flight which I could have missed."
Pros: "I slept the whole trip"
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive. Second time running Air France and Air Ukraine lost my luggage."
Pros: "I like their food that they served because they were fresh and warm."
Cons: "They dont even have a plug that we can charge our phones .Also they dont have a tv .It was a long trip so i must sleep because there was no other option."
Cons: "They dont even have a plug that we can charge our phones .Also they dont have a tv .It was a long trip so i must sleep because there was no other option."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "They compensated our wait with a sandwich and a drink."
Cons: "We boarded the plane to find out there were some technical problems. We then deplaned and waited several hours for a new plane. Little information was given to the passengers in languages other than Ukrainian. Re-boarding was not announced, it just happened. Seats were very uncomfortable and too close together."
Pros: "Everything was OK except at frankfurt it took 25 minutes to get from the plane into the terminal. FRA airport operations was VERY VERY slow and seemed quite inefficient. I assume UIA does not have access to a gate and jetway at FRA, but the transfer from plane to terminal added about 25% more time to the overall trip time."
Pros: "Everything was OK. Check in was smooth and except for the absence of jetways, it was OK."
Cons: "Two hours delay, no plugs for charging no"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Not enough room. Uncomfortable"
Pros: "The second flight (operated by both Ukraine and Turkish was good."
Cons: "nothing really."
Cons: "no personal TV's on a 10 hour flight... thats absolutely ridiculous no WIFI on a 10 hour flight... again.. AWFUL! Why would I ever take this airline ever again? Worst 10 hour flight I've ever had. All of the other airlines (your competitors) have everything. You need to up your game"
Cons: "I paid for the flight (one way)over than 550$ to have a seat close to the toilets (line 30C)!!????. Does the flight defined : low cost I will never buy a ticket through your company!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff and the food, and the modern aircraft. Toilets were OK, but none in the rear of the aircraft."
Cons: "Economy class leg room for tall guys. Overhead light not directed correctly and couldn't be adjusted. Spent hours doing online check-ins and boarding passes, there was no counter to drop off baggage. Instead, had to check-in again. This caused an extremely long line. There was no provision for counter check-in for seniors, such as myself, and people with infants and young children. There was no electrical nor computer plug ins. Quick delivery of baggage at terminal."
Pros: "Service staff was friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Expensive food with nothing for free included, no entertainment counsel"
Cons: "I didn't find my bagage and the first flight was super late then I missed my second flight"
Pros: "Boarding in the plane on time and crew very good."
Cons: "No snacks and an entertainment"
Pros: "The service and the food was very good ."
Cons: "The seats is very bad and small and it was business class ."
Pros: "We were served drinks in paper cups! No plastic. Attendant said credit card machine did not work but then used it for others. Tried to overcharge by 12 euro and did not bring back change."
Cons: "Plane was too small for so many passengers. I asked for window seat and got middle! Airline people should speak better English as job requirement."
Pros: "Service was great, solid flight staff."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit small on the shorter legs of the flight."
Pros: "The flights where on time, and there were not issues between transfers. They provided 2 meals on out 9+ hour flight that were unexpected as everything I read indicated that there would be no on flight meals provided, so that was nice. There was always one little thing in the meal that was a bit weird, but overall the meals were rather good. And once they put on the movies, they kept them coming, which really helped the time pass on such a long flight."
Cons: "It might just be a cultural thing, but the crew was less than friendly. They didn't appear to enjoy their job at all and rearly smiled, which I found odd as I took a total of 4 flights and only the male attendants on one flight smiled.... but after seeing the typical cliental they have to deal with I guess I can understand their dislike! (If I had to deal with people allowing their children to run around like animals for 10 hours with not a word against their actions I might be a bit pissed as well!) And with all airline, they shrink the seats to cram as many people on the plane as possible, so the seats were not altogether that comfortable, but again, that's all airlines. Other wise the only technical issue that I wish should have been disclosed is in Venice there is no Counter for Ukraine Air, they use another airline as their counter support so it was a bit confusing and frustrating when they where unable to print both tickets! Had to get in separate line in Kiev to get second boarding pass."
Cons: "It didnt arrive my baggage until now terrible"
Cons: "Terrible burned luggage"
