Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice crew and good service"
Cons: "The other passengers are not very orderly when boarding. Passengers could have been more spaced out."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Turkish was phenomenal. FareScan could have definitely been better. After booking they called demanding another $145 for my seats. They said they couldn’t complete my reservation without it and needed an email confirmation from me to approve the new charge. Seeing I was short on time, I didn’t have a choice. Will never do business with them again."

Cons: "God knows"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled"

Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"

Pros: "Service food timely departure"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines apparently cancelled the trip for us. They blamed Justfly and Justfly blamed Turkish airlines. Problem is still unresolved. I am stranded in a foreign country with my family including 2 small kids. Vacation is ruined. I booked this flight on Kayak with Just stfly. Awful, awful experience and no one seems to care. And problem is still unresolved. So thanks for asked for asking but better to fix the problem!"
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."
Pros: "I was very disappoint with this time using turkish airline5 services. I paid fir my seats with my ticket and they don't give it me and service was not as same as used it before. Wasn't happy at all. I don't thing i will used it again."

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "Happy staff"
Cons: "The food was low quality and delivered in a demeaning fashion."
Pros: "Everything was superior from A to Z there is no room for complains"
Cons: "They have lost our luguage and up to this minute, we dont know where they are and when we are getting them. They are not even answering our calls or emails. Very bad airline with very unprofessional people. Will never fly aith this airline again."
Pros: "Everything this airline goes out of their way to make the flier happy and pleased, food and entertainment superb and American Airlines in general should learn from them"
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Cons: "Boarding was devoid of any announcements or organization, and was just a gaggle of people shuffling towards a gate."
Cons: "It is just crazy the extra cost that a person needs to pay for each extra Kg he/she needs to have onboard along with their "free baggage." I had to pay 23 extra US Dollars for every Kg, summing up to $160 for 7 Kgs!! Those additional belongings were crucial and important to carry, it very well understood that a certain capacity is only allowed onboard, yet being considerate and understanding in terms of customers' needs and priorities is as equally critical and important. I think the way the airline approaches the "Extra Weight" issue needs to be revisited, keeping in mind both sides' interests and concerns."
Pros: "I like everything the staff, the food, the plane was very clean and the entertainment was very nice with lot of options."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "The people at Attaturk Airport Information Desk were not helpful. 6 hr wait with nothing to do."
Pros: "In time"
Cons: "They did not give me window seat"
Pros: "Istanbul airport with shops and new food court area is excellent"
Cons: "Newer fleet. Good service and entertainment system."
Pros: "Quite good. For an international flight, the comfort and service could be better. Eg foot rest, a pouch for socks , ear phones"
Cons: "No foot rest, help the short people to store luggage."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled due to weather conditions in Turkey, a snow storm that caused the Istanbul airport to be closed. I tried to reschedule my flight but was delayed 4 days which meant I was going to miss my work for 3 days."
Cons: "The crew is really rude and unhelpful and the seats not clean"
Pros: "Nothing. Had to cancel didn't go"
Cons: "That they changed the flight schedule twice making it impossible to go."
Pros: "Food; power outlet."
Cons: "Most concerning aspect is security. Very unlikely that I will choose Turkish airlines in the future"
Cons: "The service is slow and bad. Very unaccomodating from the first person at the airline desk at the airport tonthe hosts on the plain."
Pros: "Nothing, just the price"
Cons: "I had 2 flights and both were late, the plane seats is really not comfy and the plane has no entertainment"
Pros: "I thought the food was remarkable. The cabin crew did a good job saving my mood after the nasty agents on the ground and during the check-out process."
Cons: "Absolutely all of the agents I dealt with during check-in. This was true for especially those checking in at the business class line for some reason. She was really rude."
Pros: "So I never actually flew with Turkish this trip, but I can write about my rerouting experiences. Inbound my first connection to Istanbul was cancelled due to technical problems. Fortunately I was second in the ticket office line and was promptly rebooked with Lufthansa. My return flight was cancelled because of the coup, and again I was rebooked with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Overall Turkish Airlines did well in a difficult situation. But a few concerns. On my inbound flight, the agent servicing us was amazing and I was fortunate to be second in line, but the airline was ill prepared for the situation and the agent was being hung out to dry by his colleagues who kept calling him and wouldn't let him do his job. On the return flight, I was frustrated the agents at first pushed me to take a refund rather than letting me rebook with a partner. I ended up having to leave a day later than expected, and didn't get an itinerary till the morning after my original flight. This was all very stressful. Lastly, you have to think twice about flying through Turkey. Although this coup is over, the next crisis will be over whether President Erdogan creeping authoritarianism."
Pros: "It is very bad all flights been cancelled!"
Cons: "Didn't like any thing zero bad I wanna come back to the state! I'm was born in 1946 I couldn't stand on my feet any more!"
Cons: "The staff at Istanbul offices are mostly very rude and disrespectful. They don't care much about the customers and gave me and others a hard time. Racism also came out strongly and I wish they would assess situations before jumping into conclusions."
Pros: "crew was friendly, I slept through most of the trip."
Pros: "I paid for seats"
Cons: "Sure many"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and willing to serve."
Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable (it is thin) and more space/pitch between the rows of seats."
Pros: "Crew extra nice"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. They seemed to care about the passengers' comfort. Also, even though the flight left late, they made up the time while in the air. They are the reason with I gave the excellent rating, despite some other misgivings."
Cons: "Lufthansa food service seems to have been deteriorated somewhat over the recent past. Especially the snack before landing seems laden with mayo (plain bread might have been better!)."
Pros: "Super confortable"
Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour."
Pros: "I loved the Awesome Check in lady from United airlines, her name is Sandra and she is pure awesomeness. I also loved the air hostesses for the care they have given me from the time I set foot On the plane until I left."
Cons: "The attitude of the Lufthansa gate staff was anything but welcoming. Reaching the gate for the Lufthansa flight was greeted with my name shout from a distance, and my apologise for being late were met with shrugs! Not only that, but my 3 checked bags are still in at IAD, I didn’t receive in CAI!"
Pros: "Spacious seating, easy access to charging plug and good movies."
Cons: "Boarding is never fun, why not do back first?"
Cons: "Better food/choice-make it on time....and its quite cold in the plane-not sure why."

Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "The staff is good"
Cons: "The service for a wheelchair is extremely bad"
Cons: "Business class is a rip off. They are economy class seats. They don't recline. No entertainment whatsoever!! Horrible experience."
Pros: "Flight left on time and as I was traveling alone I was upgraded to upper economy, which is a fantastic experience. Very smooth and stable flight. One of the best landing I even experienced. The flight inbound and outbound were on time both ways. Congratulations Lufthansa: I will definitely use this airline again."
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Cons: "They skipped me when passing out the food. They probably thought that I was sleeping, but they didn’t stop to ask."

Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Cons: "We were 24 hours late for departure without warning. We only found it out at airport. Air attendant didn't take customer's complain seriously. When we asked if there were a choice for food. Answer was YES - to eat or not to eat."
Pros: "The trip from frankfurt to boston was amazin"

Pros: "every thing was good, so comfortable for a long flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Safety and ease of flying- cleanliness too"
Cons: "No food at all! The system for getting food was unclear."
Cons: "The offer to travel the next day by giving up the current reservation for a price, making us wait for almost two hours and then telling us that we will be travelling the same day instead of the next day. Initially they requested us to help them as they were over booked with an offer and we informed all our relatives, later with the withdrawal of the offer we had to call everybody again. A whole lot of confusion , discomfort and mental torture."
Pros: "Even I fly Lufthansa all the time with miles and more it makes you IT'S LIKE TOILET PAPER...VERY DISAPPOINTED...."
Pros: "This flight from Munich to Charlotte was operated by Lufthansa. To my surprise (and a little help from a friend) I was upgraded to business class. does not get much better than that !!"
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."
Pros: "Excellent steward."
Pros: "nice personality"
Pros: "Courtesy and friendliness of staff."
Cons: "The cheapo headphones"

Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "Good Airline, perfect service"
Pros: "The amenities were a nice touch (headphones, blanket, pillow) and nice selection of current movies. The captain made timely announcements to update us where we were flying over and what our expected arrival time was in German and English."
Cons: "I was surprised that there were at least four dogs on the flight, some without a carrier. I didn't care for one of the meals which was mixed peppers with onions, cheese and potatoes. I thought the meals were overly salted but what airline's meal isn't."
Cons: "Not enough space. Seats are way to small. No tv's on plane"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Lost my bag. See previous comments."
Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
Pros: "I was comfortable, not affraid."
Cons: "No leg room for a long 4 hour flight!"
Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."

Pros: "Both flights were equally wonderful"
