Qatar airlines is good to me. No complaints. Great service and great people

Disorganized and lacking courtesy in Nairobi JKIA. Business travelers counter not displayed. We paid about $5000 for return tickets because they rudely locked us out saying “you are late.” They had sent us for a new 24 hour COVID test having rejected the 72 hour we had. We did not understand their logic because passengers were still in line. We were in line from 4pm, the flight was after midnight. At PHL, being American citizens, we were not required to present a 24 hour C test! We feel robbed!

great

Pros: "The crew was very good. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom."
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Everything was great, as the flight wasn't full, so we could relax"
Pros: "The airplane trip was ok"
Cons: "I had 14h of layover in Doha and I did not have a hotel to sleep that night."
Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"

Pros: "The service was perfect the aircraft was clean and tidy. The pyjamas were a great added bonus and comfortable."
Cons: "There was nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Pros: "The service was great and was on time"
Cons: "The service and was"
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"
Pros: "legroom"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "they need to do family section"
Pros: "All crew were nice"

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Flight was on-time, crew was very friendly. The entertainment was very good, the food was o.k."
Cons: "Everything overall was very good, the only issue was that we tended to sit with our dirty trays and empty cups for quite long periods of time."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Stewardesses were more helpful on this flight than we had experienced on the previous flights. However their resources were limited. landed safely."
Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Food serving took a while. And need improvements."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness including restrooms, excellent food selections comfortable seats including head support and friendly professional attendants."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Pros: "Crew were nice and courteous. Quickly boarded passengers and deboarded passengers upon arrival in Qatar."
Cons: "Late departure from Amman without update as to reason."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The seats were not the best and it would have been nice to have a meal other than just a small breakfast."
Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"
Pros: "Same again. A good flight and well fed."
Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "Not much food to eat."
Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety."
Cons: "none"
Pros: "I had plenty of space"
Cons: "There should be more vegetarian options available. Crew were very slow in responding to my requests."
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
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: "Crew were friendly Entertainment was good"
Cons: "My meal was awful the only option for me was raw vegetables in order to have vegetarian and gluten free... It was carrot, cucumber and celery sticks and some fruit. I had the same meal twice it was very sad meal for 17.5 hrs with no snacks offered either. My partner and another man were forgotten as the meal rounds were being done. The crew seemed a little disorganised. The adverts on the entertainment were annoying."
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "Consistently good service from emirates crew"
Cons: "Too much meat in the dining options Boarding was slow"
Cons: "Food was not awful and most item not available in Fist Suites"
Pros: "Dinner meal. Seats"
Cons: "Bed, breakfast"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."
Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "Great legroom, quiet plane, seat free next to me"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Checkin services Staff attitude"
Cons: "Crew were rude, kept knocking customers. no vegan meal No drinks offered for majority of flight poor quality entertainment, screen didn't work properly."
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"
Cons: "Chinese passengers passing gas!"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "The 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."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"
Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
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."
Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."
Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"
Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."
Cons: "Wish that the airline would have told me in advance that I need an Australia transit visa before I went to the airport."
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."
Pros: "A passenger was felt sick ( breathing problem?? ) and crew members were very responsive to attend to him, by bringing in O2 bottle etc. Very impressive."
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Great flight and service"

Jammed full flights

Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"
Cons: "Older plane so entertainment system left a bit to be desired"
Cons: "Crew was extremely noisy and not mindful of most of the cabin sleeping. Speaking loudly, joking with one another. Very unprofessional. In some instances woke people up (in economy) and made them put their seat up because someone behind them wanted to eat at 23:20. Not friendly either."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful"
Cons: "The food must have been a bit off, though very tasty. Luckily had a 2 hou layover with nice lounge toilets"
Pros: "The flight was on time, service with a smile. Staff great."
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alot of the check-in consoles were closed when we got to Brisbane which is the only way to check if you can't do it on line."
Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"
Pros: "Great food, great service!"
Pros: "Not much to like other than access to Cathay pacific lounge at SFO Over booked about 50 seats fights in the aisles security on board blamed on a computer glitch delayed over 2 1/2 hours Business class old uncomfortable seats. After flying Singapore business last week I was appalled at what quantas had for the same price I’m dreading my flight back home on quantas I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."
Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and slow. So-so food. Air New Zealand was better than Quantas for similar journey at same week of year and about the same price."
Cons: "Great! On time"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"
Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Cons: "American airlines dont know what passengers need to enter a country and then rebooked me on new zealand air but quantos changed that and i dont know where my bags are. Does the insurance i bought cover any if not all of these inconveniences."
Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "Twice this trip, 2 qantas staff rectified our seating allocation so we could sit together as a family and i didn't even have to ask. The staff are always so pleasant and engaging."
Cons: "A mishap when allocating seats online, when i chose seats for us online (my fault i left it too late) there weren't any together...but the staff rectified this..."
Pros: "The variety of television/movies was fantastic."
Cons: "Overall, the crew was rude. Short answers, extremely long delays helping passengers. A different crew in the same flight was so much better! So I know it wasn’t “typical.” They ran out of 2 of the 3 dinner options before serving us. I assumed they would start with our row at breakfast to ensure we got first pick. Nope. Served last once again (and we were in the middle, so why last???)"
Pros: "Very nice and speedy check in. Boarding ok. Food good but no fruit."
Cons: "slow entertainment system. Some shows and maps unavailable"
Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"
Pros: "Customer service...very helpful and accommodating. Good food. Easy transfer from domestic to international. On one of our flights, a 39 minute one, they served a substantial snack (yogurt, breakfast biscuits, oj) and tea, coffee, etc. Amazing in that amount of time!"
Cons: "I tried to think of something but I couldn’t."
Cons: "Very hot in the Flight to LAX. Crew was trying to do a good job, just didn’t see them much. Food was bad. Will think twice about booking with quantas again ☹️"
Pros: "Decent plane, good staff, very clean"
Cons: "Food was only ok, limited entertainment choices"
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "The 3 Hour Delay in Sydney!!!"
Pros: "Service! Dinner was good, breakfast was a bit more hit and miss. Plane is quieter than most."
Cons: "Seats were like rocks. Business class, lay flat beds - even with the padded "sheet" they provide are abysmal. So much so that I cannot recommend the airline and will not fly them again."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "With an almost 3 hour delay the lack of information from Qantas staff was infuriating and we were held in what felt like a ‘holding pen’"
Cons: "floor of plane not clean full of crumbs"
Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."
Pros: "Flew over the Antarctic! Had an empty seat next to me Looking out of the window Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Not offered a drink until I asked on both meal services. 2hr late departing due to airport congestion due to to Qantas over Sydney centric focus. Food was good but maybe a bit sparse Evidence of of cost cutting. Long flight (14hrs)"
Pros: "Getting through airport at Sydney was nice and easy, and good overall at JFK."
Cons: "LAX was not an easy navigation from terminal to terminal, as there was little info provided in flight and a serious lack of good signage or information booths at the airport."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Cons: "The delay was just disappointing"
Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Good meal - pasta"
Cons: "Expensive flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."
Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
Pros: "Great service, great food"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Boarding food choices actually got drinks and food with Ticket price. Didn't have to buy extra food or drink They actually serviced toilets on flight. Got headsets and you could choose your own entertainment at your seat"
Cons: "There is no room between seat if person in front of you Puts their seat back. You have zero leg room and you can't Get out of your seat to go to bathroom. If all seats are taken in coach you are quite screwed"
Pros: "it was nice to get an early phone call about flight delay and given a food credit for the delay, pleasant check-in, smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "the poor boarding control and information. delayed boarding time and no-one from Qantas at gate until 45 minutes past the time scheduled on ticket and no communication of why nor when we would board. new passengers arriving were allowed to start getting in at gate before notifying us who had been waiting there to be told to get in or in what order. seat arm rest (between seat 58b and 58c) was wobbly. Entertainment movies need newer choices specially for people like me who can't sleep on long flights and have seen all this movies. where's the classical music?."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Pros: "Normal economy seat. It seemed as if there was a little more leg room than normal. Crew was very courteous and accomodating."
Cons: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."

Nothing

One hour is not enough to transfer between flights in Istanbul! It was a long run through the airport to make our flight on time. Then once we boarded, a lot of time was wasted with a woman who seemed to have been sick, yet the staff eventually let her stay on the flight. I hope that she was not contagious. Another problem on the long flight was that water was not available often enough. The flight attendants could have gone up and down the aisles with prefilled water cups a few times between meals. 10 hours is a long flight requiring more hydration. The flight crew was always courteous, friendly and efficient as we have found on all of our Turkish airlines flights. We appreciated the effort to accommodate English speaking passengers. We also find the entertainment options superior on Turkish Airlines. This was extra helpful on the long flight. My one complaint on the entertainment is that I could lower the music volume a bit more so I could have background music and sounds while trying to sleep.

The Turkey-dc leg was awesome. The Bangladesh-Turkey service could have been better. Smaller things. In the pack given, noticed there was no k95 mask. The US leg had it. The crew in the Bangladesh flight were also not the friendliest.

Pros: "Worst customer service ever no one ever answer the call also no one ever answer call from vayama DO NOT BUY FROM VAYAMA"
Cons: "Honestly never buy a ticket from a vayama or kayak worst companies to buy ticket from I wanted to extended my ticket and they were charging me $1200 for extending my ticket from Lahore to New York ... instead I just missed my flight and got new ticket for $500"
Pros: "TK Lounge in Istanbul"
Cons: "Business Class boarding process is not well setup. I expect that If you are paying significantly more for a business class, you would have priority boarding at least ... this didn't happen. We were asked to be there at the gate 1 hr before the flight of which 40 mins were spent just waiting in a room packed with people."
Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"
Pros: "Seats and bathrooms were big"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow. I kept having to ask for more water all the time. Flight attendants were nice, but not well trained. Food quality was pretty poor, especially for international business class"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Crowd highly liked company deserves crowd"
Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"
Cons: "Seats are too cramped and not enough leg room. Plus our seats did not recline which is painful on a 10 hour flight. The flight attendants and front desk workers had an attitude as well."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Unconfoetable seat for business class. No priority for boarding in business clas. Old plane."
Cons: "They took over 6 hours to decide if the missed and overbooked flight would be free or an additional $1000 (which they originally demanded). Spent over 30 hours in the airport with no help from the airline - NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "2nd time with Turkish Airlines; no concerns. Everything handled timely and professionally."
Pros: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Cons: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."

Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"
Cons: "Planes are a little small for a fairly long haul business service. Nice but small - so basic amenities."
Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"
Pros: "Entertainment is good and nothing else."
Cons: "Crew was helpful but with "I am doing you a favor" face which I didn't like. And then I found my instrument damaged which broke me."
Pros: "including new releases"
Pros: "Finally loved that they had a vegan sandwich for me!"
Cons: "We were supposed to land with an hour and a half till my next flight. We landed and they were already boarding my next flight. It was very slow getting off the plane also. Took forever to pull up to be able to let us unboard."
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The aircraft looks a little old."
Pros: "You guys are blessed and best of all of time"

Pros: "I already posted my remarks above"

Cons: "The security check at the Istanbul gate is haphazard and not to0 professional"
Pros: "amazing !!!"
Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "The ground crew couldn't speak English! I was part of a group and a friend of mine got wounded doing Ski. We simply couldn't communicate with the ground crew so they can arrange her with a seat that would match her medical condition. On board the plane, the (idiot) guy from the ground crew told us we can either take unfit seats or disembark. I find it very hard to believe I'll choose Turkish again..."
Pros: "Exceptional service and very friendly crew members."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and 36 hours later, I am stuck at a hotel with 100s of other people none of who have a clue how to contact the airline as all the phones are not being attended to. The Indian sales and reservation team as well as the Turkish customer care are not responding to the situation at all."
Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Cons: "less seat space"
Pros: "Friendly workers"
Cons: "I upgraded and paid for first class round trip but only got it for my flight to italy and not the flight back to miami. Economy is too cramped for such long flights and they are not as attentive as in first class"
Pros: "All amazing"
Pros: "Definitely would recommend Turkish airline Great experience overall"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"
Pros: "Love everything... i was actually surprised... The crew was the bes"
Pros: "To get a real meal on a relatively short flight is especially nice."
Pros: "The entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time. Fairly smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was quite strange. Hand checked some travelers but not all with no explanation. Breakfast was a bit "off""
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Cons: "I didn't even go"
Pros: "The aircraft were really nice and the service were great the air hostess were really nice"

Check-in in airport was painless with no queue and our queries were dealt with efficiently. Flight was comfortable. Food and service was not as good as outbound flight, but still OK.

The plane /seat/tray tables were very dirty The crew was friendly and nice but the seat area was grubby

Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Cons: "Armrests were broken. No outlets or USB ports to charge."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive"
Cons: "Gate confusion, boarding issues, company food policies"
Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"
Cons: "I was not notified that I needed a visa as of October 1st, therefore missed my flights. You suck"
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. Delayed about an hour."
Pros: "Nothing other than being able to get off this plane ride as soon as possible."
Cons: "Everything. Friendlier crew who could look like they enjoy their job more. Seat and comfort. Seat pitch was awful for a major airline. Some discount airlines seats were more comfortable w/ more space. Boarding was archaic. Climbing stairs down to tarmac, bus ride, climbing up stairs to plane."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "I was in business class and the individual cubicles were so comfortable. I slept well. The airline attendant was so attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Going through LAX what a mess"
Pros: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "On time. Friendly and attentive staff."
Pros: "On tume"
Cons: "American and all other airlines need to improve leg room in coach."
Pros: "Things were all right on schedule and the plane was very updated and clean. I was thrilled with the movie selections and the food was better than average plane food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were in rough shape, would have liked to see those serviced in-flight so those of us using the space to do night-time routines like brushing our teeth and washing faces didn't have to deal with someone else's mess."
Cons: "It was 3 hours late"
Cons: "."
Cons: "3 planes all with mechanical issues... numerous people left stranded, the whole thing was a nightmare. Finally got home around 1 00 AM. But the worst part was the gate agents I literally felt like I was disrupting their day! Email sent to American."
Pros: "Everything good. Flight on time, crew was pleasant!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."
Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable on American Airlines compared to Qantas"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."
Pros: "Was really good flight"
Cons: "Thought I would be flying on Quantas, not AA"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was efficient. Flight was fine"
Pros: "The crew were fast and friendly but maybe too fast. It felt a bit rushed."
Cons: "It felt a bit rushed."
Pros: "we paid $300 for more leg room on the 787...it was great....really comfortable seats."
Cons: "the volume on back seat screen....impossible to get right with the touch screen. GO BACK TO KNOBS PLEASE AS SOME AUTO COMPANIES ARE DOING."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The check in computer crashed before it started. Only manual check in available and the staff wasn't trained to handle it. It delayed the flight over 2 hours and then the process screw up someone visas and they had to be removed with their luggage. But you know this already! You need to implement a better secondary system and have your employees be trained to use it."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Cons: "I am an AA member and usually fly them domestic. The seats are horribly uncomfortable for an international flight. The flight attendants woke you up for meals. There is no space between you and the seat in front of you and they didn't tell anyone to put their seat up while you were eating. It was really difficult to get comfortable. I find it easy to fall asleep on planes and I couldn't fall asleep on this one."
Cons: "Felt as though some American Airlines crew members were abrupt. I've never experienced that with Qantas or Jetstar."
Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."
Pros: "- The boarding process went very fast and smooth for such a packed plane."
Cons: "- food was HORRIBLE. I asked for the chicken dinner and it was COLD and disgusting. There should always be a pasta option on a flight. Also, they ran out of red wine before dinner. - the staff skipped over me TWICE when handing out beverages. I had to remind them that I existed twice and they didn't apologize for skipping over me."
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Pros: "Good movie selection, decent food selection."
Cons: "Wifi was not free."
Pros: "We enjoyed the movies and games available, lots of leg room and had a lot of food to hold us over. The flight was long but very smooth."
Cons: "I did have to lay for my seat or I would have had to get a middle seat."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
Cons: "No personal screens on each seat-,makes international flight very long."
Pros: "Food was great and the service!!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours. When we landed we sat on the runway for another two hours due to no empty gates because American didn't move their planes from the flights that were cancelled."
