Cons: "Its sad to see that only the female flight attendants look after the restrooms, no male attendants were seen doing it on both flights. Disappointing in this day and age this still exists."

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Food was less than marginal"
Pros: "Flight time"
Pros: "I do like Singapore airlines and all the rest of the airline stuff apart from the entertainment system was great!!! (Unfortunately since there was no USB or seat power my iPad fairly quickly ran out of juice...)"
Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "I don’t see anything I didn’t like"
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"
Cons: "They seemed to miss a whole section with immigration cards which delayed my party of travellers when we landed. The recline of the seat is huge, great for those wo recline, not so great for the person behind them"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Very poor on board entertainment"
Pros: "Everyone was very attentive and nice. The leg room is decent ."
Cons: "Some of the food didn't taste amazing, would've like maybe a different choice other than salmon or curry pork"
Pros: "Menu cuisine is customized for country of travel and food was hogh quality. Staff was very courteous and responsive."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The cabin crew was awesome.. they are for sure the super stars of the company... I wish all of them all the very best for a very bright future"
Cons: "The service of the airlines is impeccable. But the ground staff near check in were not so. I hope they were a little considerate as I was travelling for a family emergency and had to take all my stuff back as I wasn’t sure what date I would return back. I was over weight but wish they had considered a lil as had to pay an other $300 extra.."
Pros: "Comfortable, full service through the night.."
Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "Expected to have more indian movie choices."
Pros: "EVERYTHING was great...from check in to the entire experience on board. Extremely friendly staff to delicious food and a great choice of beverages! Clean and tidy aircraft with lots of extra amenities. Pleasant flight, pleasant arrival. Always a great way to travel!"
Cons: ""Customs" at JFK came to an entire halt. All passengers where stuck in the welcome hall for 1h, without any information, why held there and why nothing was moving forward. All CBP booths were closed, but 8 (eight!) employees, who normally direct arriving passengers to the kiosk-machines where hanging out in two groups sharing private stories and having laughs instead of at least informing passengers, what was going on. Lots of passengers where outraged...a couple in their mid 70s in front of us had to sit down on the floor, since they had circulation problems from standing in line so long. Sadly, JFK isn't what it used to be anymore."
Pros: "Entertaiment"
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "the flight schedule are very good"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Pros: "New plane- Airbus A350 with latest in seats, entertainment system, and cabin fittings. Decent wine. Highly courteous, attractive and attentive crew."
Pros: "Superb service throughout from check in to on flight."
Cons: "Seat on outbound had a slight issue."
Pros: "New movies! Yes!"
Cons: "I asked for one of the crew to help me bring up my carry-on luggage, as i'm just recovering from a flu at that time. Instead the FA looked at my bag and asked me in an irritated tone if my bag was really that heavy? I said I was recovering and I just need an extra push once I lift it up into the cabin. In the end she did help but i did not appreciate her attitude and felt disappointed my whole flight."
Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"
Cons: "Economy class isn't great for a long haul flight but the staff make it much more bearable."
Pros: "Not much turbulence"
Pros: "Service was best in class"
Cons: "Planes are old. They never seem to use newer planes on the Brisbane leg."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "I was travelling with a toddler and they did not have a toy or activity to give her on a 15 hour flight. We were told to keep our seats upright during meal times and to keeo our window shutters down during other times. This made sense. But there were passengers right in front of us who had their seats reclined during meal time and the crew did not tell them anything."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"
Cons: "Business cabin is not as good as the Air France one"
Pros: "Aircraft was OK."
Cons: "Cabin crew service can definitely be better. Should offer more snacks for long flights."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "nice food, plenty of water, good service, quite comfortable & on board wifi if you need it"
Pros: "Comfortable, warm with food you could eat! What more could ask from standard economy class"
Pros: "I like that I could check in 2 suitcase and able to choose my sitting when it's available."
Cons: "charge a few $ more but serve some food on a 5 hour flight. very cold feeling"
Cons: "delay for 2 hours without notice"
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."
Pros: "Friendly and approachable cabin crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not good. No clear announcement. No special boarding for star alliance gold member."
Pros: "On my flight back I got to sit in premier economy and that was amazing !! I want to fly like that all the time! The leg room and space was perfect. The comfort of the chairs recline and foot rest that raised up was great. The big tray table that tucked away was nice. And side pockets for your stuff was great. The comfort of the bigger seats was just excellent and they looked newer. On my flight back from Frankfurt to NYC that was the best flight I ever have taken."
Cons: "The only thing was the food wasn't the best. But I did have Ice cream and that was good. The rice was good and beverages was good. The rest wasn't the best."

We flew economy. These days, there no longer seems to be any attempt by Emirates to provide a superior flight experience to the budget airlines. Noisy families were crammed into the cabin, many bringing with them more hand-luggage than could be fitted into lockers, some passengers too wide to fit into the seats! There was nothing specifically wrong with the flight, the crew were friendly & professional and the in-flight entertainment provided by Emirates is always really good. But flying economy with Emirates nowadays feels much like flying with the cheaper competition.

It was lovely.

Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "Crew were rude and kept ignoring me"
Cons: "Crew member needs to be more friendly and accommodate when things go wrong"
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."
Cons: "there was a delay in Munich by Emirates which led to the flight from Dubai to Kuwait, which took off from below, leaving us at Dubai airport"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I did not get the seat that I booked online. This made things a little hard for me."

Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Delayed departure. Unable to catch up time. Landed late. Bus took a very long time. Missed the connecting flight"
Cons: "Hotel with all meals provided."
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: "Breakfast and lunch were both tasty"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour for our bags at BHX"
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: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was forgotten and when I asked for it I received dried red cabbage and a dried up tomato and a grated carrot and something I didn't know what it was. The bread was not gluten free on this meal so I couldn't eat it. Unlike the first leg of my journey this meal didn't have my name or seat number on. I feel like it was put together once I asked where my meal was. Snacks offered but not gluten free so was very hungry from previous flight."
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"
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Very polite & helpful crew & agents.... both at Dhaka Airport & the flight. Conditions to work in Dhaka Airport are difficult & yet your ground personnel were calm & helpful with a smile on their faces!"
Cons: "Very little isle space!!! Now I know how sardines are packed!! Did you put in more seats? Seems like you have!! With no consideration for the simple, basic comfort of your passengers!! Just because most of the passengers were Bangladeshis you DID NOT have to serve only what was a very poor excuse of Bengali food!! A choice or better quality food would have been appreciated!!"

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: "Nothing much."
Cons: "There was no hotel reservation and I have to pay out of pocket. Why? I need a refund. You guys are responsible for that."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"

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 plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."

Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."

Cons: "The check-in staff"

You have set and are maintaining excellent standards; keep it up!!!

When leaving Florence we arrived at the airport 2 1/2 hours before our flight. There were 100's of people waiting to check in for several different international flights and only 2 people working at the check in counter issuing tickets and checking bags. Many people were missing their flights and trying to figure out how to get home. We waited over 3 hours on the lines along with most of the other people on our flight. There were several altercations between travelers and ticketing agents. I am not sure if they held the flight or if we put on a later flight running through the airport to board. There were no other people in the airport at security or shops or anywhere just the crazy international flights area. When we arrived in Switzerland for our connection we were very late and again running through the airport to barely make our connection. When we did arrive in Newark our luggage did not. Also I had ordered a gluten free meal when I booked the flight and they did not have my request so I was unable to eat on the plane. If you are asking about allergy meals they should be available or I would have brought my own food on the plane. On a positive note, the blankets and pillow were a nice comfort for the long flight. They also checked our carryon for free so on our sprint through the airports we weren't dragging bags with us too.

Pros: "The service and food were good."
Cons: "As a petite person I find the seats in economy class small and cramped. When passengers in front of you recline their seat backs, there is very little room to move, making it difficult to get up and out of your seat."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They left snacks and drinks out in between service."
Pros: "I was in business class and it was great. The staff the food and the seats were awesome."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak and when I arrived at the airport Swiss air had no seat available for me. I was forced to upgrade to ensure a seat."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of food and snacks available. Good wine."
Cons: "Delayed flight, almost missed connection, told on first flight had to check carry-on then they lost our luggage on the connection, cramped seats, but i did pay for the cheapest seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours leaving from Delhi to Zurich and by more than an hour leaving Zurich to Chicago. The service on the Delhi Zurich flight was minimal, inflight entertainment did not work in spite of the crew trying to reset, the bathrooms were AWFUL!"
Cons: "They charged about $230 to convey my skis, compared to about $80 for the first bag. This is such ab unexpectedly big difference as to be a trap. Swiss Air are, in my opinion, con artists. Do not fly with them."
Pros: "The flight waited for us as transit after delay of the firs flight from Munich"
Cons: "1. the food was a disaster. 2. The noise on the flight from a group of passengers was terrible, no way to sleep or rest. 3. The staff did not try to calm the people the steward laugh me when I complained.."
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"
Cons: "My only concern was that there were times when I felt a little too warm. The newer Boeing 777 doesn't have passenger controlled A/C."
Pros: "Flight attendants were cheerful and efficient."
Cons: "I'm not a terribly large person, but there is zero room in economy. When the person in front of me put her seat back the screen was literally 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and polite"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long and chaotic in Zurich The seats are uncomfortably close together and there is not enough room to move at all. I would say for bigger size people, they mau even be unsafe. I have had high regards for Swiss airline until my recent trip. I will definitely look for other options for my future trips."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Plane was clean"
Cons: "Tight space in economy class(to be expected)"
Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"

Cons: "I arrived on Thursday, today is saturday and I am still without my luggage."
Pros: "All good with this 1:20 min flight."
Cons: "Everything was good. Seats much better and bigger comparing with international flight what should have been opposite - on longer flight - more comfortable seats than for the five times shorter flight."
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."
Pros: "Basically the worst flight ever"
Cons: "Delays, tiny seats, terrible food, dirty bathrooms, no preparations"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "It was a fast flight. Less people on the plain."
Cons: "I did not like that I was in a Swiss airport for more then 13 hrs and the company did not offer me a hotel for the night. Two I did not like that at the airport in zerik they don't take coins."
Pros: "Service wa a ok."
Cons: "I didn't get on the flight because they lost my luggage and they refuse to give me a new ticket. I was back and forth on the phone with Swiss and still no good word"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Short flight.."
Cons: "They gave me and the 2 other black people who were flying, the seats all the way in the back. I'm never telling the people at check in "just give me any seat" ever again! It was so obvious I almost complained to all the attendants! I just tried to keep my cool... HORRIBLE FIRST EXPERIENCE TO EUROPE!"
Pros: "Crew members are very professional and services are good."
Cons: "Very few selections of movies Seat are congested"
Cons: "Don't like to wait for no one 30 min inside airplane"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, friendly, timely service."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "The guy in front of me at the flight from Zurich to Newark..."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Seating is too tight and uncomfortable and I'm only 5'6"!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were perfect and very professional. I had a toothache on both flights back and forth. And on both flights, the crew members were always keeping an eye on me. Thanks so much. And also the pilots did an amazing job on making the flight as smooth as possible, love the 777! Thank you Swiss. I'm flying again to Athens this summer, I'm going with Swiss :)"
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "Plane was nice, lots of movies to watch, free wine"
Cons: "Seats to close together, crew a little snooty"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "EVERYTHING'S Good to come back home"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything was great.... The food , crew was fantastic , nice friendly stuff ! Very happy with the flights"

Pros: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm a pretty small person (5'4 and 110 pounds) and it was very hard for me to get comfortable. Not that you'd expect much out of an economy class seat."
Cons: "Boarding procedure for business class with being held up in a small holding space"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew, nice food."
Cons: "I found it uncomfortable to watch TV/movies when the seat in front of me was pushed back - the screen was too close."
Cons: "Not. Lot of room for legs. Slection of movies very poor. Very old movies mostly"
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"

Cons: "No room and very hard to get t your seat"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly. This was my first international flight and it was a very successful flight. I enjoyed the meals and the flight attendants were very polite."
Cons: "I did not like that the very impolite lady sitting directly in front of me reclined her seat as far as it could recline. As my seat was unable to recline this provided little to no leg room. She refused to compromise. Luckily, I was sitting next to a couple nice gentlemen who switched seats with me."
Pros: "Obviously, the chocolate."
Cons: "Seats are too close. I'm short, so don't need much leg-room, but I felt claustraphobic."
Pros: "Nice blanket."
Cons: "I told the stewardess I had 2 broken ribs and a badly injured leg. She seated me at my seat with - some metal box under the seat in front of me so I couldn't get my feet under it at all! Then she tells me not to put my feet in the aisle! That seat should only be sold to a child! Terrible food. I'm terrible "snacks" of pretzels, it was so insulting."
Cons: "Old business class seats, not comfortable when lying flat; small media screen"

Ease of boarding. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good. In flight entertainment great.

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: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "Good comfort service"
Cons: "Hour and half taking off, many seats were unusable because of a chute malfunction"
Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."

Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"

Cons: "No back-of-seat screen, overhead screens lacking enough contrast to see much. No matter, I looked out the window instead!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Flight was not comfortable, when seats are pushed back, there is no leg room left. Entertainment system and contents both were poor. Flight delayed by 4 hours."
Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."
Pros: "seats - very comfy flat bed to use on overnight flight"
Cons: "too warm, hard to sleep"
Cons: "Qantas is the source of unlimited frustration for us. We could not check in online, and it wasn't even possible to choose a seat before you got to the airport unless you wanted to pay a premium for it. To make matters worse, there is no transparency in the process; we had no idea what seats they were assigning us, or even whether the three of us would be able to sit together. And when we showed up at the airport, the last leg of my flight had been deleted from my itinerary (but not that of my family members). And guess what? They couldn't do anything about it until I was ready to get on that last flight! The crew were great, but all the behind-the-scenes aspects of Qantas were absolutely horrible. Two days later I'm still reeling from the experience. What a terrible way to treat customers."
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Pros: "in flight service"
Cons: "website down and couldn’t even checkin online"

Pros: "All the services"
Cons: "Felt squished"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Nice airline with lots of room for a very long flight. Seats next to me were empty so I could lay down but unfortunately a bad respiratory illness prevented me from doing that. But still comfortable. Nice variety of food."
Cons: "All good. Movie selection could have been a little better maybe."
Pros: "The flight crew allows you to sleep the majority of the flight."

Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."
Cons: "Delayed departure as usual unsuitable aircraft (737) for 5 hour flight. It's time Qantas steps up and puts a proper aircraft on the Singapore Perth flight. Even the budgets are more comfortable that this."
Pros: "A lot of snacks"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was very poor and the entertainment was awful. The touch screen barely worked and the sound system was hard to listen to. I was forced to use the airline headphones. I was always losing sound."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "Food was better than expected. Appreciate the multiple snacks in the middle of the flight. Appreciated the 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. The crew serving the food had excellent customer service skills. The movies listed on the website were different than the actual flight. I really wanted to see a couple that weren't available."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that was disappointing that stands out to me."
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."

Pros: "Cleanliness, really courteous staff, comfortable seats, entertainment from an app :-)"
Pros: "Always organised"
Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "Spacious, good food, attentive flight. I would fly again if I can sit closer up. Very generous and gave us a 20 dollar food and drink voucher because our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for 45 min before they let us out. The flight was delayed for about 2 hrs but they let us out and gave us a voucher to spend. We sat in row 73 from Sydney to SFO and it was really hot, the AC didnt really kick in. It was uncomfortable. But it did finally got colder. It just took a long time."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "I flew to Sydney from Dallas and back and I had no problems or issues. I would fly Qantas again."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."

Pros: "Food was more than I expected!!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."
Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "The boarding to my connection flight failed due to unprofessional behavior of the airport staff. Likewise if many people. They did not allow us to board and closed the flight although we were on time"
Pros: "The first trip from Chicago to Istanbul they given us the first chair with bed for baby But the next trip they not"
Pros: "On time and comfortable flight"
Cons: "No suggestions"
Cons: "Room temperature control should be better."

Cons: "More choices of movies would be great for long hauls"
Pros: "The crew are very nice and the service is really good."
Cons: "The seats are not so comfortable, the leg rest is just in the way and not useful for me. The PA is overused which is annoying when trying to watch a movie."

Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Very nice love it"
Cons: "Very nice and love"
Pros: "Food was really nice"
Cons: "Crew wasn't caring, poor service"
Pros: "Better than all others at this time."
Pros: "We liked the ability to watch movies and television programs to pass the time."
Cons: "We did not like that to use Internet we had to pay an extra fee. We did not care for the food. We were not impressed with the cleanliness of the aircraft. We did not like that the bathrooms ran out of water to wash our hands. We did not like that flight attendants handled and served food with no water on the flight to wash their hands. Most flight attendants were unfriendly. The one gentleman that served us was pleasant. We really did not like that between the food service we saw virtually no flight attendants other than those sleeping in the area at the back of the plane. We did not like that we could not understand the announcements made. We did not like the fact that passengers were not reprimanded upon landing for using electrical devices and laptop computers even though an announcement had been made to turn all devices off and put them away. Once announcement was made not one flight attendant said anything to those people around us who did not follow the request. We did not appreciate the uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Almost Everything"
Cons: "NOT THE AIRLINE'S FAULT - There was a 2 hours line for Passport check in Venice. Uncertainty about missing the flight."
Cons: "Staff seemed to not care about passengers. Could partially be a language/cultural barrier, but i have consistently noticed staff just want to push through their tasks. Actual service is not a priority it seems. Another issue, often times they run out of food."
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"
Cons: "Y"
Pros: "Excellent service. Even the food was great :-). The bathroom cream and parfume were a nice touch. Nice hot towels, Nice touch to provide a menu! Check-in was a breeze"
Cons: "5 layers of security check for us bound flights. Group A, B, C & D almost boarded on the same time. Food was horrible."
Cons: "Boarding crew were rude and unhelpful. They didn't check IDs which became evident when a passenger complained his passport was missing and the plane had to return to the gate so he could go back into the airport to find his passport. Had it been checked before getting on the plane we could have spared everyone the hour delay. really this was is the worst service ever. Avoid."
Cons: "On our longest flight, we were put in a cramped plane with no entertainment systems. It's sad to see a company that has such potential blowing it with these sort of cost saving/ customer losing choices. Please upgrade your fleet to stay competitive with your surrounding competition!"
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "The seats and leg space very good. Flight clean ."
Cons: "Food served was poor in quality. Bread seemed to be stale and hard. Seems from the previous flight. Crew had poor service. Some food has fallen on the floor and she kept pushing to serve the same food and was reluctant to discard that tray."
Pros: "It was unfortunate that our flight was delayed by 7 hours. The crew was nice. The plane was small but it was ok."
Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is better than all airlines I have used."
Cons: "The entertainment system could be more user friendly. Navigating the movies could be better. I'm not complaining, however. All in all, Tk is very good."
Pros: "Being able to stretch out and get some real rest makes a huge difference for me when trying to cope with time zone change west coast to Europe. Overall great experience"
Cons: "What a mess!A woman was changing her baby's diaper by the food service area. A group of passagers lyed their babies on the floor to sleep and floor was full of food crumbs. Flight attendant were incapable of keeping passangers undercontrol. Food service was so poor. Going abroad they run out of fish almost after serving 50 passangers and we had no other options but pasta with cheese sauce. Attitude was 'you either eat or don't'. This has happaned twice flying out of US. Flight attendant said 'fish wasn't good anyways and food is much better on return flights'. On my return flight they once again run out the dinner with meat and I was served this time eggplant with rice. They served all the passangers but five row back from the exit doors and few row below from the restrooms received service 30-40min later. Others has already ate and their trays were taken away. By the time they served us my food was cold. Two scoup of rice on the plate was raw and the bread was stale. When I told the flight attendant she said 'she will let her supervisor know' but no body came to talk to me nor offered anything else to eat. Altough I have seen one passenger who got upset been served rice with eggplant received a service later with chicken which wasn't in the menu. Another passanger received two menus at once. Flight attandants are incompetant"
Pros: "I like the comfort, food and the entertainment."
Cons: "As much as I love flying Turkish Airlines, they have this problem of boarding passengers on time as they now feel like "hot cake." They need to improve in this aspect."
Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"
Pros: "I liked nothing about my flight."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on a 10-hour flight. Crew was not friendly, almost rude. Seat space was VERY tight."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat. Very narrow walk way to lavatory."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable and the crew as very warm"
Cons: "since i had a connecting flight and in changing timezones i as served breakfast in both flights in a duration of 12 hours. the food was also not according to my taste buds."
Pros: "I already posted my remarks above"
Cons: "Same wrote above"
Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."
Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Pros: "Your crewsom"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They accommodated my service dog even without being in the system.They are always very nice and look after me perfectly!I was super late for boarding on the way from NYC and they helped me out!"
Cons: "I called the Customer service to let them know I have a service dog and she wasn't in the system neither the way to Hungary or back!I had a little trouble because of that!I asked to sit at the isle for the same reason and they gave me a seat and then moved me because they said I cannot sit there with a dog.They wanted to give me a middle seat but fortunately a nice girl swapped with me for the Isle seat!"
Pros: "Everthing was great. I wish US domestic airlines were even half as good"
Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."
Pros: "Good service during the flight."
Cons: "The check-in and the boarding processes at Istambul were the worst I remember by far. Airline staff members were careless and even mocking about passengers."
Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"
Pros: "Sadly, nothing."
Cons: "Service Attitude of staff at Istanbul airport, no one wants to help Delays No options if a flight is missed Wrong information Visa machines at airport don't work"
Cons: "Boarding was "like a bar fight. After business clase call, they didn't even call star alliance etc. There was h"
Pros: "Took Turkish Airline from New Delhi to San Francisco. The flight is at 6:55am from New Delhi, so a little early start - but the connection in Istanbul is excellently timed. The aircrafts were 777-300ER on both legs, and rather new. The entertainment is great and the TV screens are 11inches. Could not complain at all. Food is fine, standard fare, and there are some snacks available through entire flight. Istanbul is a reasonable airport for a short connection. Turkish allows 2 bags of 50lbs free - yet another reason to take it along with the reasonable fares."
Cons: "The luggage delivery at SFO took forever! The flight landed at 4:36pm and I got my luggage at 5:40pm. This is something I have noticed on Turkish Airlines multiple times. They really need to work on their luggage workflow."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good. Being from the US I was not expecting food in a 2.5 hr flight!"
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as in the Airbus for the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "I woke up twice due to too warm cabin."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "1) The foot rest blocks the ability to stretch your legs. A very uncomfortable 12 hour flight. Cramped. As a result, I will probably go with another European airline on my trans-Atlantic flights. 2) You need to offer snacks between meals on a 12 hour flight (back in the galley). Every other airline I have flown offers these on long haul flights in the galley - usually a small snack like chips or cookies. Your flight attendant told me that she would be serving the second meal in about 4 hours. Really, I was shocked that nothing was available in between meals on such a long flight."
Pros: "Very professional, clean and excellent service, I will flight with them again"
Cons: "Called to change date. Thy did not take credit card payment over the phone for a stupid reason. Asked me to go to a thy office no later than 10.30 am the next day. Every airline grabs the money, these "very smart" thy admin has developed rules to make passengers' life's inconvenient. Highly not recommended. Lousy airline. Broke my luggage on top of this on my flight from Miami to Istanbul. NOT recommended. Refrain from even suggesting thy to your customers. You have a good name."
