Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Every thing in airplane was wonderful. I would like to recommend this airline to my friends"
Cons: "You are best ."
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."

Cons: "Okay and not any issues."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Time check in maybe earlier."

Pros: "Beautifully presented and tasty Japanese food. Electronic windows."
Cons: "Not overly impressed with the 12:05am departure time. Western food not overly impressive. Having to travel from the plane to terminal by bus."
Pros: "While many other airlines are cutting down on their service quality and amount of food on their flights, Japan Airlines has done the reverse: offer excellent food and great service at every tier, including economy. We took a flight from NY to Tokyo and felt like it was one of the best long haul flights we have taken."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."
Pros: "Fast and eady"
Cons: "Couldn't pick seating or check in online so I was separated from my husband"

Cons: "Everything. Screens were small. Leg space was little to none. Food was trrrible. I will never fly with JAL again"
Pros: "The crew was always super polite and looked very professional and overall just great. The food was delicious, though the portions are small haha. I had my time behind and I was super late to boarding but the crew came looking for me and they were super nice. Definitely recommend them. Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "The seats were quite small but other than that it was a nice flight. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "I love flying jal"
Cons: "It's not so much the flight as it was the plane, the 787 seats recline too much for the limited legroom you get so if the person I front of you reclines all the way you will ride with there seat in your knees the whole way"

Cons: "Aisle seats not very private, remote control not intuitive to use"
Pros: "The flight from Jakart to Japan, Japan to Chicago, was not a problem. Although thr food was typical plane food."
Cons: "My brother and his wife had to wait 12 hrs for plane delay,just to hear that AA canceled all flight for that date. The crew told my brother and his wife to wait for another12 hours which is the next morning, for next flight. My brother decided to just take a rental car to KZO, and was going to just take their luggage from the airline, but the AA crew would not let them did so, and was really rude. It was very traumatic experience for the both of them and other passangers of how bad they treated this plane delay/cancellation issue. One passenger with baby was having a panic attack, but nothing was done. So far, no compensation, or apology email has been sent. Will never take this airline anymore. We are done."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "This was my first flight on JAL. Their customer service was especially good for English speakers. The food on the plane was good, but geared toward the Japanese customer. I must say that it was tasty, but unaccustomed to my palate"
Cons: "I think it would be good to put more food that is geared to a more international palate."

Cons: "Same thing as above"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent on my flight back to JFK. They were very attentive and kept a smile. There was never a time where I felt uncomfortable. There was open seating on the flight and the staff allowed passengers to relocate for increased comfort. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "The food on my flight was just ok. Going out to Japan the food was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I was a little disappointed on the way back."

Cons: "OLD PLANES Touchscreens won't 50% of the time"
Pros: "My son and I enjoyed the courteous and genuinely friendly service and attention from all flight personnel paid too us to ensure a wonderful experience to and from Japan. From Hawaii JAL manager upon check in concern for my son not feeling well to the attendant realizing we spoke no Japanese to apologize and begin conversing in English, every one was pleasant and professional in desire to please us and make our trip so comfortable."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Can't say because I was satisfied w/ my flight"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Having to leave a comfortable setting"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the sevices, food & entertainment were great. On 777 airliner, private entertainment system with wide movie selection. Seats have AC outlet and USB charging outlet."
Pros: "Very polite and fast service, international Languages"
Cons: "Food was a bit boring and bland, but since it was only from Seoul to Tokyo, it was okay. But I was hoping for Japanese food instead of that Egg dish, the entertainment system needs to be updated since the touch screens had a delay of about 10-15 seconds or didn't even function at all."
Pros: "Everything from check-in to boarding was easy, clearly outlined, and succinctly instructed. The attendants were very kind, attentive, and caring. Announcements were in multiple languages, and very easy to understand. The flight was only 2 hours long, but even during that short time, they maintained great professionalism and polish. They even retrieved and stowed a bag multiple times for an elderly passenger without complaint, and frequently checked on him to see if he needed anything else. Quite nice to see!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the random PA interruptions for nothing on the entertainment screen. a minor nitpick on an otherwise wonderful flight!"

Cons: "767 plane was obviously an older model... no USB ports"
Pros: "Very cramped for business class, old equipment. Poor quality food."

Cons: "Reservation online"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."

Pros: "Great entertainment system for a short haul fl flight"

Pros: "Modern aircraft , nice crew"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Could have had a better selection of movies"
Pros: "My wife and I flew from Los Angeles to Seoul. The entire experience was incredible. From check in to disembarking, we were well taken care of. Gracious service and complimentary drinks throughout the flight with a full spectrum entertainment system!"
Cons: "Food was very poor."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and good service."

Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"
Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""
Cons: "I had a long connection wait in Tokyo, but that was not too bad since I got a great price on the round trip ticket - less than $700!"
Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."
Pros: "Fast boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food was terrible even for plane food was unacceptable the headphones jacks are all half way working u have to wiggle the end to make it work the chairs are very stiff and uncomfortable next time looking for another airline"
Pros: "Awesome crew and food"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable.."
Pros: "I loved the touch of luxury, even sitting in the economy , the hot towels, the good food , attractively prepared , the free wine and the courtesy of all the team. This was my third time flying with Singapore Airlines and I hope not the last time. The big plane flew so quietly, it was a wonderful flight."
Cons: "Like in all airplanes in economy the seats are too close , but when you cannot afford to fly differently it was okay, there was at least leg room."
Pros: "Excellent service but old plane"
Cons: "Entertainment was that good"
Pros: "We lucked out and got seats with leg room! Yeah!!!! Thank you."
Cons: "Breakfast was very late into CPH and they only had one choice... Think maybe some ovens were not turn on!"
Pros: "The usual SQ charm was in effect during the flight - the crew was great, helpful without being intrusive, and the Krisflyet experience (albeit an older B777-300) was still good and enjoyable."
Cons: "The Milanese boarding crew was a little unexpectedly rude - the Milanese ladies were just kinda shouting at everyone and ordering unclear instructions. I also sat near the bathroom (seats 43A and C) and the smell was sometimes a bit strong. Also slightly disappointing was how quickly the chicken ran out on the way up!"
Pros: "I loved the entertainment, the kind staff, and the extras they gave out to try to make us as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "My boyfriend is very tall, 6'6. On the flights to and from, even though he was on he aisle side seat, it was very difficult for him to have enough room for his legs, thus making my space that much less. In the future, I think we would benefit from booking either the seat behind us for him that had more leg room, or the seats in front of us that were the first seats of all rows."
Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."
Pros: "Gate agent gave us extra legroom after our trip to Australia in the crying baby section. No one's fault, but a difficult 14 hour flight. Thank you again for your kindness."
Pros: "All is well"
Cons: "Everything is excellent"
Cons: "Too hot in the plane - was far too hot. too late the drink...after I eaten."

Pros: "Amazing aircraft! Amazing crew!"
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "The supervisor has a good customer care and all the crew are so wonderful. I was so pleased. Thank you."
Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."
Pros: "Qatar Airways could not be described except a FIVE STARS airline. Great hospitality and respectful crew"
Pros: "aircraft so silent"
Cons: "the flightvwas so turbulent and it was full. imagine standing 12 hoyrs next to some stranger who's Going to sleep and fell on you. Upgrade to Business class eas not available..."
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Improve your carry on lagguge policy. I was made to throw away some of my expensive clothes by the stuff to fit the weight, when it wasn't a problem when I was checking in ."
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "I am very pleased to travel with Qatar airways. Qatar airways and Singapore Airlines are the best companies."
Cons: "I was a little bit annoyed with the staff at the Doha airport at the boarding gate because she did not let me get in to boardin in priority even though with my privilege club card, I do have to insist after the call for zone 1 to proceed for boarding."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many flights"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."
Cons: "I was unable to get my food preference on line days before my trip. It kept telling me to try again. Fortunately the staff was very helpful when I got on board and were able to accommodate me. I hope not to have that same problem on my return flights"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant service. Some of the best airline food in the world."
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Pros: "price, comfort, food"

Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."
Cons: "My parents did not get wheel chair in Delhi after that long,tiring journey..this is the service airline provide,it's so disgusting..they didn't even get the porter..they had to carry the heavy luggage when they have problem in walking..I am so disappointed.what is the use of this survey."
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"
Cons: "15 passengers waiting in line for the bathroom"
Cons: "Such an uncomfortable flight. Poorly organized, was a total chaos. Will never fly Qatar again!"

Cons: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Cons: "We were packed like sardines, it was very uncomfortable. And, by the time they got to me, they were out of the fish I wanted for my meal."
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Cons: "very upset about fee i was charged for overweight luggage, and the unclear wording on their sites baggage allowance rules."
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."
Pros: "Good service, good entertainment options, modern aircraft"
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"
Pros: "Clean plane, esp. the bathrooms. Sufficient bathroom amenities. Attendants always checking bathrooms for cleanliness. Very friendly attendants yet not overpowering. This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"
Cons: "Not interested in the menu's main courses. Fruits were not sweet at all. Must improve on your cappuccino. Nobu's seafood soup noodle did not come with chopsticks."
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "Everything was taken care of and I never had to worry. I felt well treated, important, my things were taken care of and respected, the plane was clean and had great in flight options for food and entertainment. The staff was respectful and nice."
Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"
Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"
Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."
Cons: "Qantas need to improve thier overall customer service"
Pros: "Crew were lovely. Boarding was quick. Flight landed early."
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"
Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."
Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"
Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"
Cons: "Great! On time"
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"
Cons: "Food was awful."

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"
Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"
Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"
Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Typical great Qantas customer service and safety"
Cons: "I don't understand why the fourth busiest route internationally is still so expensive.."
Pros: "Liked service and entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"
Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."
Pros: "Nothing is better service, food , beverage, everything is not good"
Cons: "Change with food quality"
Pros: "No sops followed"
Cons: "Food is really bad and they never even bother checking with any one same burger which is cold dry"
Cons: "New Istanbul airport requires kilometres to walk and then take a super crowded bus. Insane"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Pros: "The new aircraft is well put together and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking delays on both sides."
Pros: "Better seats clean bathroom"
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants, simple check-in, good service."
Cons: "I wish the flight attendant brought more water from time to time, as the flight was long."
Cons: "Every flight is late boarding and taking off, connections are too close together and the set up of Istanbul's airport is nonsense. If you don't miss your connection it's because you ran and the flight took off late. Boarding is rushed because they started late"
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "Entertainment, and the plane which felt really new and comfy."
Cons: "Food was a bit boring (because it was such a short flight, I suppose)"
Pros: "Excellent respect of timing : check in , take off and landing and delivery of luggage. Crew professional and quicly available Connecting flight was possible thanks to respect of time. I have tried number of companies I can tell Turkish airline is committed to time and staff are well organised and professional."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable in this kind of plane. As we were doing a connecting flight we were also tired."
Pros: "They allowed me to change my flight for free because I could not get a visa to Turkey. Thanks!"
Pros: "crew, food, entertainment was great. Seats were terrible"
Pros: "Service and people"
Cons: "Long lines and security pat downs...."
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Went smoothly!"
Pros: "Smaller aircraft but better seats, comfortable"
Cons: "The air conditioner stopped working it was in incredibly hot on the aircraft cabin"

Cons: "The food was not good"
Pros: "Food is excellent."
Pros: "Food is better than most and the personal touch screen entertainment center is top notch"
Cons: "When the person in front of you lounges back it's near impossible to eat your food or see the screen comfortably"
Cons: "The transfer at Istanbul airport was somewhat chaotic and disorganized."
Cons: "It was an hour late arriving!"
Pros: "Everything about this airline is really good. We will flight again as much as possible using Turkish Airlines. Thank you crew and onboard for the great service."
Cons: "Long layover wait in Istanbul"
Cons: "Seating in the middle seat and 2 smaller people sat on the aisle and window seat"
Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."
Pros: "Half of the plane was empty so most passengers were sleeping"

Pros: "see above"
Pros: "The entertainment was great Wifi at the terminal was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, no lines were formed, people were not kept in order People were boarding with oversized luggage and it was allowed by the crew People were talking at a very loud voices across the cabin and staff never intervened Many people were standing during the landing and were opening the overhead compartments, staff never intervened I am allergic to cheese and there was no replacment"
Pros: "Clean and computable plane, very good meals and quick handling for departure"
Cons: "Nothing !"
Pros: "The crew and the service. Plus the choices for entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was great, very friendly"
Cons: "Everything else. Small space, food was not very good, bathrooms were dirty."
Cons: "They left my bagage in Estambul"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Free checked bag was nice. Food was very good. Cocktail service was very good."
Cons: "Still a tight space. US to Europe by going several hours out of the way to Istanbul still doesn't make any sense."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Pros: "A three hour flight and they gave us a very nice meal and beverage selection. Never happen in the U.S. unless you are flying first class, and even then they wouldn't exceed Turkish Airlines. When did you last have metal eating utensils with your meal..... if you even got a meal. Plus multi channel seat back entertainment on a three hour flight. I wish the U.S. would open domestic markets to foreign carriers."
Cons: "Really tight seats. Almost impossible to eat your meal."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding and the food"
Cons: "The planes interiors could use some updating"
Cons: "My food was allready open. And the flight attendant who gave it to me was ride throughout the plane ride. No USB. :("
