Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked decent."
Pros: "Very Modern plane, good seats an entertainment system, reactive crew."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The crew is excellent"
Cons: "The seats area are too small my knees hurt as they hit just the edge of the food tray, impossible flight with the seat other than straight as you will be disturbing a lot the other passengers, although unfortunately some people do not care about the confort of the others"
Cons: "I really found that the crew was rude, specifically on the New York to Istanbul flight!"
Cons: "Old-style video screen and console"
Pros: "Spaced seats, kind crew"
Cons: "I had two checked baggage a and o my 1 was delivered. I have reported this at the airport and have been following up with their customer service many times but no information is yet provided after days."
Pros: "Great crew. Pretty warm, helpful, friendly and very professional. Enjoyed the entertainment too n the flight arrived in good time."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"
Pros: "Food is phenomenal . Seat are so much more comfortable then delta, and I fly a lot overseas , where flights are 8h minimum , so it is a very important factor. Flight departed and arrived exacted at time schedule, and of course not to mention that the prices are good for their flights"
Cons: "The only thing I would say that it could be improved is that they leave you food tray on your laps for a lot longer that needed."
Pros: "On time boarding but stayed 20 minutes over time to take off."
Cons: "My flight dates were changed by the airline which made me change many of my plans. My son's seat was broken and Tv didn't work (13 hour flight). Overall uncomfortable seats with very minimum seat recline option. Poor food. Staff was little "cold" and not attentive."
Cons: "Several TVs were not working. While some were repaired the TV for my viewing did not work. Though it was set right it failed raw weal times."
Pros: "I had two short flights with Turkish Airlines and on both flights I received good meals and entertainment. Young children in the seats around mine received shrink wrapped comic books and stuffed animals. Headphones were provided to those who needed them. I definitely did not expect such good treatment on such short flights. I really got the impression that they are trying hard to keep the quality of their services as high as possible. I really recommend these guys."
Pros: "It was nice and easy trip to USA and back home to Moldova. Crew was attentive and helpful. Food was good and plenty to drink."
Cons: "It was red eye, and the light in the cabin did not turn off for a long time."
Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable and had more recline than most airlines."
Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff. This delay caused me and many others to miss connections in Istanbul. Also, the transfer process in Istanbul was very confusing; I was given wrong directions and waited twice in the wrong place before I found the right line to wait in."
Pros: "The comfort level was good. I liked the meal in economy and I was able to watch a new movie."
Cons: "The flight left late from Marseille, further diminishing the 4.5 hours I had to catch a flight on another carrier. The flight circled the destination and was then diverted to the second Istanbul airport, where we refueled and waited for another hour. People from the back of the plane rushed to the front of the plane while we were still taxiing on the runway at Ataturk, all to get to the front of the line. The crew was passive the entire time. Upon exiting we were herded onto busses (thus taking away the supposed advantage of those rushing the front). When finally in the terminal, I had to go through customs, purchasing a visa (for a country I did not want to visit at the time), and reclaim checked bags. I proceeded to the other carrier's counter, to be informed that the gate for my flight onward was closed. As the ticket was "promotional" I lost that ticket and had to purchase another - on Turkish! Also had to spend a night in a Turkish hotel, also on my dime."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "2.5 hours delay on Tarmac on outbound flight; 1.5 hour delay on Tarmac on return flight. Outrageous."
Pros: "The food was great, entertainment was excellent, flight crew was pleasant, seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late and I nearly missed my connection as a result."
Pros: "Helpful cabin crews"
Cons: "Interval between servings of meal is too long"
Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Disruptive child in seat in front of me"
Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Pros: "Movies selection and food was great"
Cons: "I was sitting in a row with 4 year old and her mother. It wasn't comfortable for them and for me at all, as the child was moving and talking constantly. Well, it's kid, I understand. But as I was going to use restroom I noticed that there was about 6-8 rows where there was only 1 person in 3 seats. Share and spread the space"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Food quality degraded compared to early years. I have been seeing the very same food for couple of yours- tasteless bland food did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Baggage handlers poor. One of my bags was dented and the other had a buckle broken."
Pros: "The crew at the Tokyo airport was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to checkin online.I called they said they assigned my chosen seats, I got to the airport and nothing was assigned. I wrote a formal complaint, all I received was "I am very sorry". And this happened on all 4 flights: Basel to Istanbul, Istanbul to Osaka, Tokyo to Istanbul and Istanbul to Basel. Just one of the worst experiences ever. The crew on the flight from Tokyo to Istanbul, also very rude and cold. The food was really bad, the egg was terrible!"
Pros: "The food and staff were great. The seats were rather comfortable and the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment system was of an older style wherein we had a choice of 3 movies and 7 "radio stations" across 15 or so "TV channels" rather than the fuller suite of entertainment options I'm used to on a Turkish Airlines flight."
Pros: "Great chairs"
Cons: "Great flight company"
Cons: "I am 200 cm tall and nobady ask me if wanna sit exit door .. some people 160 and 170 were there ..please next time to put tall people there .."
Pros: "The breakfast was very good, recent movies, and I believe the seats were quite comfortable for coach. Love the ability to see the outside view from the cameras, and following the progress of the flight! I don't think anyone else does it."
Cons: "Nothing. My favorite foreign airlines."
Pros: "I find the airline crew nice and accomodating. The food was fairly good compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The seats are very tight and does not leave much comfort. This is of course economy but new fleet of other airlines have a slighty added leg comfort."
Pros: "The food was good, as was the service."
Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."
Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."
Cons: "It was a pretty physically uncomfortable flight. My seat wouldn't recline even a tiny bit and it was a 9+ hour flight. The flight attendant tried to help but was unable to get it to move either."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew were good."
Cons: "I had checked in and had boarding passes with assigned seats. I need an aisle seat and JUST ASSUMED when the check in person at LAX; tore up our pre-boarding checkin with seat assignments that I was given an AISLE SEAT. I WAS NOT AND DID NOT KNOW UNTIL WE BOARDED. THE GENTLEMAN ON THE AISLE DID NOT WANT TO CHANGE. WE WARNED HIM THAT WE GET UP AT LEAST 3 - 4 TIMES ON A 12 HR FLIGHT. We did and woke him up at least 2-3 times. BAD FLIGHT FOR ME...I WILL DOUBLE CHECK NEXT TIME FOR AN AISLE SEAT FOR ME OR MY WIFE. jAMESDEAN BUCKLEY firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"
Pros: "food, enterttainment"
Cons: "too small legroom"
Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "The wide range of entertainment on offer, personal USB port,"
Cons: "Touch screen did not work properly although once I figured out how to use alternate controls it was fine, had an aisle seat center and there was no way to really stick my legs out withought them being cramped. Staff seemed hurried and more interested in talking with one another across the row I was in. They were not particularly friendly. My first couple flights with Turkish were much much better"
Pros: "The service was excellent The Pullman Hotel was an excellent choice for dissatisfied customers. The staff was friendly and understanding."
Cons: "Only an hour between connection so the connection was missed.Also the airline only gave a food vouchers for one restaurant. That restaurant has poor choices of items to select from ,food quality was substandard ,the choices of the items was to limited, and the people in the restaurant was rude."
Pros: "Very pleasant and accommodating staff."
Cons: "Very short flight. The meal service, while very good was quite rushed for the short hour flight. I barely got my food before the trash came around to be collected."
Cons: "Staff not fluent & clear in English"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Seat back entertainment systems were quite good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. Meal was OK, not great."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding process. Lunch o.k. but nothing special."
Cons: "My husband is 5'11' tall and was extremely uncomfortable because his knees were right up against the seat in front of him. The man on the other side of me was also very uncomfortable because of the same reason. I am only 4'11" and so I didn't have a problem. I would have rated this trip excellent except for the uncomfortable seating. I know this is done to cram in as many seats as possible into the plane, and thus sell more tickets, but from a passenger's perspective, this is a terrible practice."
Pros: "I liked the good timing and the comfort seats with good service."
Cons: "I wish if they give more than one bag with more weight to be 2 traveling bags and 40 kg for both."
Pros: "Good food & service."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating with inadequate space between knees & seat in front making the trip unnecessarily uncomfortable."
Pros: "Lots of nice little amenities (lip balm, sleep mask). Tons of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Seats were small, old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "I was so cramped and I'm only 6'. My back has hurt for days after that flight."
