Airline reviews

Pros: "Plane was modern and more comfortable than most"
Cons: "I do understand that it was an overnight flight but the crew came around only during meals and at no other time did they check on us. I hit the call button and nobody came - call button just went off. I was in the middle next to a sleeping passenger and could not get up."

Pros: "It was a less old plane than in my JNB-DXB flight, but still old."
Cons: "The outdated and unresponsive entertainment interface, the lack of legroom under the seats, and the fact that the already-limited legroom for middle seats must be shared, leading to tensions between passengers."

Pros: "The food was good. The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: ".If the seats recline to just a little bit more"

Pros: "The crew was great and the dinner was really good!"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been better and the seat was pretty uncomfortable"

Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."

Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "Food and the attendants"

Cons: "Not much food to eat."

Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight. It just seemed seamless and felt like it didn't take that long to get there. I will definitely be catching this flight, every time I return to NZ"

Pros: "Very welcoming. Coach made comfortable. Excellent movie selection"

Pros: "pleasant staff excellent movie selection decent food"

Pros: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."

Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."

Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"

Pros: "Great staff, great food, great entertainment, best possible international economy experience"
Cons: "Boarding process could have been a touch more organized, but not significant"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Legroom entertainment show selection remote control {very poor} Food"

Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"

Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."

Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"

Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian or vegan food options. The flight was crowded and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."

Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."

Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"

Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."

Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"

Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Pros: "Friendly staff and on time schedule"
Cons: "Tight leg room"

Pros: "Crew / service very attentive. Lovely appearance. Food very good , also the coffee! I also enjoyed the little comforts, pillows, blankets & the travel pouch with travel essentials. I also appreciate the cabin sizes & locations of the lavatories. And, love the ceiling lights!"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't responding well, which di annoy the passenger in front of me lol"

Cons: "I didn't like the food after I hate the fish with rice I got sick sweating cold!!terrible experience!!"

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"

Pros: "Food was great"

Pros: "Everything. The service, food, entertainment. This airline is phenomenal!"

Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"

Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"

Pros: "Food, comfort, service all excellent! Hands down best 8+ hour flight experience vis-a-vis other airlines."
Cons: "While there was much in the way of options for entertainment, navigating the system & touch screen was a pain. Often the mouse doesn't follow your touch and you end up clicking things you didn't mean to click + having to press multiple times."

Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."

Pros: "Cleanliness, customer service, rapidness"
Cons: "Entertainment was a little outdated"

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"

Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."

Pros: "First flying Emirates, non stop from NY to Athens, everything was very good."

Pros: "It's a classy, professional operation with new, comfortable, very well-equipped planes, high-end entertainment options, an international crew, and many small comforts that really add up to a better experience."

Pros: "My experience at the check in kiosk was very positive. Very friendly and polite employees."

Pros: "Friendly staff, great movies"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."

Pros: "The crew was not amazing, it was okay The cabin was clean. Food was dog food. The seat was uncomfortable but no different from other airplanes of other airlines. Entertainment (if the selection of senseless movies could be called that) was okay to boring."
Cons: "For the price, overall conditions could be better, at least the food and drink could be better."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "We were told by terminal staff in Istanbul that the fkught was on Turkish Airlines.We waited in line at the first ticket counter and then we were sent to a second ticket counter where we waited in line again. We were sent to a 3rd counter where the Supervisor was chatting with a lady for 20 minutes. When we reached the counter we were told it was too late to board and we had missed our flight even though there were still 35 minutes to flight time. Turkish Airlines staff would not help us any further and we had to go purchase another ticket."

Pros: "We arrived in Athens eventually"
Cons: "People were made to wait outside in the cold airport bus for half an hour. The ground crew gave no explanation for the delay. After heavy protests, they let the waiting passengers back into the terminal. Supposedly the pilot was sick, but there was no communication at all from the airline about the cause of the delay or how long it would last."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are economy in business class. Dont fly business no need tonpay extra"

Cons: "Missed this flight due a layover and had to wait in the airport overnight."

Cons: "The airport in Turkey had no a/c it was sweltering and packed. It smelled to high hell. Boarding was crazy with people shoving and pushing and cutting each other to get throug"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was decent."
Cons: "Delayed and baggage claim took over 45mins."

Pros: "The plane :)"
Cons: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"

Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."

Pros: "Food and seat comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "In flight entertainment and snack even for a short 1 hr flight"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process - seating assignments changed for lots of people last minute with no explanation"

Pros: "there was only single screen entertainment every four rows or so. Nothing interesting."
Cons: "There was no USB ports to keep a phone charged. There was no power outlets between seats to keep a phone charged."

Cons: "Last minute gate assigned and then changed"

Pros: "Comfortable seats..."
Cons: "It got a little hot and the tray table did not unfold to a level surface causing my drinks and plate to slide into my lap."

Pros: "-Boarding was easy - The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- The leg spacing was not sufficient - The sandwich served was average"

Cons: "Flight to Istanbul was fine. The flight back was a terrible experience! During our connecting flight in Athens our boarding passes wouldn't print at the self service computers and there was no one to help us so we had to go back out to the front desk. The airline representative was extremely rude. There was 5 employees standing around the computer with NO customers and when we asked if this was Turkish Airlines and if they could help, the woman (manager) responded "this WAS Turkish Airlines" as if they were done helping customers for the day (it was 9AM and our flight was leaving in 45 min). We explained that we couldn't print our passes and she ROLLED her eyes as if it was an inconvenience to help us. THEN on our flight from Istanbul to Chicago, a passenger died an hour into the flight and they placed the body on the seats behind us for over 10 hours! Nobody even told us what happened! We didn't know if they died from natural causes or if it was something else! They didn't offer to seat us somewhere else or even inform us they were placing the body there. We were completely shocked and uncomfortable the whole flight home. We couldn't eat or sleep. We're completely disgusted and scarred from this overall experience."

Pros: "We received edit seats so we had more room which made the quick flight more comfortable."

Pros: "Very impressed! So impressed that actually called home to tell others to make sure they booked through Turkish airline for their travel next month!"

Pros: "Finally got a vegan sandwich that saved my life after the 13 hour flight before this one!"

Pros: "Arrived safely"

Pros: "N O T H I N G"
Cons: "Very unorganized and poor communication services"

Pros: "I liked everything."

Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."

Pros: "The airline crew excelent"

Cons: "Original flight was delayed and this was the next flight had to wait 6 hours"

Pros: "THis reflect in particular the flight from Boston to Instanbul, a long flight. I could see any movie (great selection) and had two full meals as well nice staff. I appreciate this in particular that many airlines cut on these cost/ anemities. Thank you"
Cons: "Not much!!"

Cons: "We were sent into the boarding tunnel before the plane was ready and ended up waiting 5-10 minutes in really hot weather."

Pros: "The food and amenities were alright."
Cons: "It left late, the plane lost my friend's luggage for a day."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."

Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."

Cons: "Boarding was devoid of any announcements or organization, and was just a gaggle of people shuffling towards a gate."

Pros: "At least one crew member made an effort to help."
Cons: "We ordered regular vegetarian food without any meat, fish or poultry. We had reserved it at least 2 weeks in advance. Again reminded them at the time of ticketing. Agent went to some one, there was some nodding of heads and we were told to tell crew member in advance. We did it in a written request to head crew. When time came other crew member served us completely ignorant of our request. We were served flash of some animal. We did not want to make a scene but people around were were also bothered. We came out hungry at the other end"

Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"

Pros: "Friendly crew. They even offered complimentary hot food on our 1 hour flight"

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Old plane. Boarding was not so nice."

Cons: "Flight left late, bathroom was very dirty, and for some reason everyone around me got a meal, but I did not! I usually really like flying with Turkish, but this flight was disappointing."

Pros: "Best air entertainment I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Boarding was very long. My flight got canceled and rescheduled. On my first flight I had made a reservation for an isle sit, and when my flight got reschedules no reservation was made and I ended up getting a middle sit, which is very uncomfortable for me."

Pros: "Promptness Courteous staff Personalized entertainment"

Pros: "I love how there is wifi on the long flights,great movies,food taste so good and the crew is so nice and helpful. I've tried Turkish Airline few years ago and since then I haven't changed my airline and I book with them to all my family :)"
Cons: "I always fly with my dog and he goes with me down by my feet so this could always be uncomfortable cause it's tight and not much place so I wish they give a little better seat for people who travel with their pets on board."

Cons: "They switched the gate without telling anyone"

Pros: "Clean airplane, food was better than the typical "pasta or chicken""
Cons: "Entire group waited to board at makeshift gate. No place to sit and minimal climate control. No word from the airline about when we would board or what was causing the delay. Very poor communication from Turkish Airlines overall."

Pros: "All was great as mentioned earlier."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags but I got it in the afternoon the next day."

Pros: "AS AN AIRLINE IWILL NEVER FLY AGAIN BECAUSE INSTEAD OF 5.5 HRS FROM STW TO ATH MY TRIP LASTED 14.5 HRS.THE CREW ON BOTH AIR PLANES EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Again, people were nice, food was good, and entertainment was still good."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized"

Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "In contrast to my trip from SFO, this was a delight. They use Airbus A330s, which are huge and very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the service quite warm. The boarding was again late --it is becoming a theme with this airline and of course, we were late taking off and arriving,"

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "there was no entertainment no pillows no blanket inside of the plane was kind of cold and the flight attendants were quite indifferent to your needs I couldnt lower the number of stars but I give it 1 star all around!!"

Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Staff was incredibly rude. There was no last call made for the bathrooms, I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant, before they announce our descent I get up to pee. I get yelled at. I sit down, 10 minutes later the guy comes up to me and asks me if I really need to go. I said of course. He opened the bathroom for me and as soon as I sit to pee a girl is knocking bloody murder telling me they're going to land the plane and I'm taking to long. I had been in there all of 30 seconds. I finished quickly and returned to my seat. We didn't land for another 30 minutes. Worst service EVER!"
