Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The service was outstanding! All of the flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "Crew miss my drink"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Pros: "Amazing crew! They handled a full flight with screaming indisciplined kids and clueless adults with grace. Entertainment was great as usual"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Efficient service and good boarding. Seemingly wider seats than the newer A350s."
Cons: "Positively ancient entertainment system with poor selection and bad visual quality. Ads pop up every time you go into another menu. If you're flying SIN->BNE I'd avoid the 7.20am departure, you'll get the old 777-200s rather than the A350s they run on other departures."
Cons: "Please don’t use just fly.com ever. They cancelled my tkt and never accommodated a new one"
Pros: "I liked the food that was provided and the range of entertainment is up to date anencephaly plentiful, spoiling you for choice. The flight crew were very friendly and prompt to serve which was amazing"
Pros: "It’s worth it to pay a bit more for the extra legroom seats."
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Very poor entertainment. Upgrade options at the transfer desk not very clear and the staff present there not courteous"
Pros: "Efficient, comfortable."
Cons: "Hostesses not so pleasant"
Pros: "We love Singapore Airlines, seriously it's not hard, you just have staff that care, clean comfortable air craft, good inflight entertainment. Are you listening American and British Airways?"
Cons: "Please move this service to DFW and displace the rubbish transatlantic service that is there"
Pros: "Service is always excellent"
Cons: "Food however was very disappointing. Surprising as Singapore Airlines pride themselves on quality and the food was poor :-("
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The seat is good. Entertainment is good."

Cons: "Expected to have more indian movie choices."
Pros: "great crew service. my first time flying with singapore airlines. they delivered!"
Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."
Pros: "SQ did a great job again. I plan to fly them in the future."
Cons: "My only criticism is that the flight attendants didn’t pass through the cabin with water during the 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."
Pros: "Excellent crew services"
Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Pros: "Even though the flight was just 45 mins, the crew were able to pop out a beverages round"
Cons: "Nothing to mention, all was good"
Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"

Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."
Pros: "Food, movies, support, were all wonderful."

Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking dealt with poorly"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."
Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"
Pros: "Just OK"
Cons: "Airport lounge at Ahmedabad"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Crew were fine."
Cons: "Food was terrible."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Dulles airport - yes, not directly related to the airline but Dulles is over capacity. Some should consider BWI - Baltimore Washington International that is little further but still a good airport."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."
Cons: "The flight is too long"
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Pros: "Amazing except for the entertainment it was horrible"
Cons: "Entertainment system , 6 hours flight without entertainment is tough"
Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "Food was delicious as always the crew never disppointed me always made me happy there’s very very good trained"
Cons: "I have nothing I dislike from Chennai to Doha it was only 5 hour journey so I was so comfy"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Terry was wonderful"
Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"
Cons: "Same no in flight wifi"
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "crew servious and food quality."
Cons: "not so many Hollywood movie choices."
Cons: "this time food was not that good which when traveled before."
Pros: "the attendants were always on top of things. One of best overall flights ever."
Cons: "Meals & Snacks Meals served on board and in the lounges need improvement."
Pros: "Food, seat, overall comfort and timeliness."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working - on a 12+ hour flight..."
Pros: "Great food etc"
Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "Lo mejor de estos vuelos es sin dudad el servicio del personal de vuelo, son muy amables y se esmeran en mantener cómodo a todo el mundo, te dan botellitas de agua, jugo, hielo, lo que pidas."
Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."
Pros: ". ."
"Less meat food"
Cons: "Everything was great food and the plane great people"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been nicer. Seats were not that comfortable."
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room and the crew were very helpful and attentive."
Cons: "None which I can recommend."
Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."
Pros: "I did like the cleanliness ."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all . Stewerdess did not smile at all .. only to their “favorite “ 2 or 3 passengers. I can’t believe I did not receive a hot tea on the way to Athens or the way back to Newark."
Pros: "I like the professionalism of the crew. Lots of shops to visit in Athens Airport."
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "The crew was up during the whole trip, offering refreshments and taking a really good care of all passengers"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "I loved the crew. Very helpful. Katarina was very helpfull"
Cons: "I sat next to the bathrooms"
Pros: "Good service and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No seating accommodations for disable passengers. I am hemiplegic and had a middle seat that made it impossible to get out of the seat for bathroom break."
Pros: "Emirates service is always top notch. I am proud to fly them!"
Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."
Pros: "The service the movies the food"
Pros: "everything was very nice!"
Pros: "Layout of plane is very convenient , bathroom acessable, no crowding in isles. Love the dining cards & choice of meals, and the comfort features ( blankets , pillows , toiletry bag) The entertainment center is also amazing! Perfect for long flights. So many choices & also power usage also great for the passengers on long flights. Also, normally I try not to use the lavatory, they are usually awful, but these make the most of their space, warm water, nice soap,colognes,seat liners."
Cons: "Apparently, operational issues in Athens, no information of why we had to go to an additional security at the gate, including a litmus test, go through our bags again & a light pat down! They also wanted us to board separately, which made my travel partner even more anxious than she already was!"
Pros: "Typical Emirates excellence"
Cons: "Space very cramped."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable for a transatlantic flight"
Pros: "Meals and free wine were positives. Also the travel toothbrush and toothpaste were nice. Entertainment with movies and tv had a lot of variety also."
Cons: "It took 45 minutes to get out bags! Crew bags came out immediately but customers stood around the luggage belt for more than 45 minutes b/c thats how long it took to get our bags and many people were left. Very annoying after a 10-hour flight that lands late at night."
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Pros: "The fligh went smooth"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."
Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."
Cons: "Food baf"
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "The fleight was great too"
Pros: "Overall was good"
Cons: "Didn't live up to expectations. Halfway through a 10 hour flight the entertainment system went down. It took a few times of calling the stewards to actually communicate the issue and inexplicably the system was never reset until 15 minutes before landing. I understand things happen but communication was lacking and slow."
Pros: "Everything felt like first class, in coach"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "Staff very nice. Food good. Loved the stewardesses outfits!"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Everything you lol for and want in a Quality Airline, You will discover with Emirates Airline"
Cons: "Top Quality - Service, Friendly Crew, Helpful, Confort, Ambience. A great flying Experience."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
"Everything was outstanding"
"Some passengers paid no respect for seating comfort, they reclined fully which made it difficult to eat and flight attendants didn’t pay attention to crying babies and never tried to help the mothers caring for the child… attendants where missing for over 3 hours once they turned lights off.."
Pros: "The planes took off and landed smoothly"
Cons: "Short connection time - way too short for this size airport. Never book a transfer in Istanbul with less than 2.5 hrs connection time. The airport adherence to covid social distancing rules was a joke. I think it was the worst experience and provoked a lot of stress. The boarding was also chaotic and business class did not board separately. The Meals on board were poor - fish or lamb (smelly) they quickly run out of pasta in business class. This whole experience was bad."
Pros: "The Turkish crew is very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines is perennially late. I’ve either missed my connection or had to run to my gate every single time I’ve flown internationally with them. This seems to be pretty well known among the travelers that use them often."
Pros: "Athens to Istanbul is a short one hour flight, made very pleasant by the attentiveness of cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."
Pros: "Service and attentiveness"
Pros: "Crew efficient and tried to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "On the runway, the crew upgraded a family with two small toddlers. They cried on and off non stop and walked back and forth in business class. I pay for business class so I can have some peace and quiet ! Crew informed everyone that they switch this family seat due to the safety of this family seat. I understand they need seats but crew should upgrade another couple with no toddlers and maybe a star alliance gold member rather than give this family with the toddlers the upgrade. No one wants to pay for business class with 2toddlers crying and up and down aisle ."
Pros: "Great crew, good entertainment, nice planes."
Pros: "Great service, incredible food. To give it a quick one: we ate the fish. ON AN AIRPLANE. I never eat the fish on a plane, but the chefs were great. Everything we ate was exceptional. Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. Plenty of movies, games, & tv shows available. Food was good - two full meals during 10 hr. Flight to and from Chicago. Seats, even in economy, were comfortable. Was very happy to learn that baggage would be checked thru to Denver from Athens, even though plane changes were made in Istanbul and Chicago. The two bags did not make the Chicago/Denver transfer, but were on the next United flight an hour later."
Cons: "Boarding process in Athens and Istanbul was confusing. Although boarding groups were assigned, none were used that we could tell. Just mass lineups, with little or no organization that we could see."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."
Cons: "Crew members form the plane need to speak better english and be more courteous.need to have a smile to help passengers. Flights are delayed for no reason."
Pros: "The customer service was top notch!"
Cons: "Could have used a few more air conditioning vents"
Pros: "Liked the movies and entertainment selections."
Cons: "They didn't have a vegan menu. I had requested vegan and called over the phone a month before my flight and they said they understood. Then on the flight I was told they only do vegetarian which was not good enough. After food was passed out to guests the flight crew dissapeared and never came to collect food trays till about 2 hours after and guests were starting to make a mess leaving food trays on the ground and isles. I had already selected my seat prior to boarding which I paid hundreds of dollars for. Then after boarding the flight crew asked me and the gentleman sitting next to me to move our seats to accomodate for another man that wanted to sit next to his wife. Then I was stuck in a middle seat and I paid for an isle seat. I thought this was rediculous. No one offered me a discount or anything! And the man that wanted to sit next to his wife wouldn't let the plane leave till he was sitting next to his wife. What was I supposed to do? Hold up the plane even longer? This was so crazy!! Outrageous!"
Pros: "On both flights: -Friendly crew -Flights left and arrived on time -Clean cabin"
Cons: "On both flights: -Cabin was a little too warm, don't like that you can't control temperature at your seat -Only 3 rounds of beverages were served for a 9.5 and 10.5 hour flights- that is less than one drink per every 3 hours and I was very thirsty. It is annoying to have to get up to ask for additional beverages. - Good was ok overall, but better on Istanbul to Boston than Boston to Istanbul"
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Leg room is too narrow and seat cushion is too harsh to sit on for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew,boarding,comfort,entertainment and food."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants, the movie selection is good. They also provide a nice pillow and blanket in coach."
Cons: "The plane was older, I had difficulty reclining my seat, the flight attendant had to help me, the seat across the aisle from me was broken. Several customers on the flight were crabby and difficult, I think all the crowding makes them like that. Just a fact of airline travel."
Pros: "Staff was nice and the food was good"
Cons: "We were 2 hours late taking off with no communications. The seats aren't strongly comfortable either"
Pros: "excellent service, nice crew, seats are comfortable no complaint on that front Airport check in crew very professional attitude and cooperative I had no glitch whatsoever the whole journey starting in Los Angeles Luggage was promptly taken care of upon arrival"

Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "Food and service were fine, plenty of movie choices on the screen, nice goody bag with slippers, ear plugs, eye mask, etc . . ."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines website is the worst I've ever used. Embarrassingly bad, really."
Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines . Good that on this occasion I had sufficient time and did not miss the LH flight ."

Cons: "Even though Turkish has a clearly outlined boarding process on their boarding passes, boarding announcements were so unclear that boarding was just mass chaos"
Pros: "Business class did have their own line."
Cons: "It did not matter where you were on the flight, last row or business class, you all boarded at once. It was a big free for all. And usually business class is given a given special treatment as soon as they are seated but it was not the case. The short flights are not worth the price of the business class."
Pros: "Great staff!!"
Pros: "Everything was good and smooth"
Cons: "When arriving to instabul. I had to go through security twice. Once to transfer to another gate which is fine and then right at the gate I had to go through security which was really weird. It made the flight delay thank god because I thought the plane would leave because the line was long and super slow"

Cons: "These was a delay on my first flight, and i almost lost my connecting flight. The had us running like crazy on instabul airport, and the employee didnt even know which gate we were supposed to go. This is the second time i had the same issue with turkish. The seats were very narrow and it was impossible to fit on there. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I reported my bag was broken on arrival to Athens.. I reported it through fb but have not heardfrom you.. I only have the picture of the damage.. I did not see anyone to report this .. My flight was Sept 4 and arrived Athens sept 5"

Cons: "the food offered ...disgusting ..........the airline knows this but continues to serve the customers horrible quality food ."
Pros: "My seat was comfortable, the food and drink were good. In flight entertainment options were plentiful and satisfactory."
Cons: "Boarding started on time, but took far longer than necessary. Plane took off an hour after schedule which caused us to have to sprint through the Istanbul airport to meet our connector. And once we arrived in final destination, our baggage never made it onto the connecting flight.."
Cons: "The sears are so uncofortable. Leg space tragic!!"
Cons: "I was not allowed the cancel my flight. I lost a lot of money and I will never book through or fly Turkish airlines again. They were rude and had terrible customer service."

Cons: "Smal seats, little leg room."
Pros: "The Turkish Airlines Boeing 777 was beautiful. And so was the cabin crew and the service they provided. Entertainment System was fantastic. TA puts U.S. airlines to shame."
Cons: "My connections in Istanbul (which is huge) were a little chaotic and stressful. Most flights seem to be deplaned are boarded using transit busses - didn't really care for that - but the international terminal was pretty spectacular. Though there weren't enough places/outlets to recharge electronic devices and finding free WiFi was tricky - finally found some in a nice little cafe! Overall, I'd rate IST 4 Stars outta 5..."
