Checking in was smooth.They can offer more options for food.
Flight was delayed by few hours
Pros: "The planes took off and landed smoothly"
Cons: "Short connection time - way too short for this size airport. Never book a transfer in Istanbul with less than 2.5 hrs connection time. The airport adherence to covid social distancing rules was a joke. I think it was the worst experience and provoked a lot of stress. The boarding was also chaotic and business class did not board separately. The Meals on board were poor - fish or lamb (smelly) they quickly run out of pasta in business class. This whole experience was bad."
Pros: "I was smacked in my knee I need surgey on my minsicus for by the person serving the food and never got apologized too. Then later he elbowed me in face and acted like it didn't happen. I liked nothing."
Cons: "Not getting hit twice by the crew serving food and at least an apology."
Pros: "It was ontime"
Cons: "Plane dirty toilets disgusting, much to warm in cabin, very tight seats and Turkish doesn’t enforce their carryon luggage regulations do boarding takes ages"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats were comfy."
Cons: "Check in is insanely long. Terminal 1 at JFK as usually Absolutely terrible. Line to go thru TSA is exacting 40 min at 12 am Midnight. We pay so much (in the price of our ticket) to be treated as cattle !!!"
Pros: "Crew was good but could be better...timeing was very good."

Cons: "The plane was a little too cold.i noticed that 90% of the people on the plane had covered themselves in blankets."
Pros: "The flight was slightly comfortable, there were more food and snacks options than in other aircraft companies."
Cons: "Some of the crew were very rude, making a point to show you that they were hassled by serving you. I thought that was poor service. The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."
Pros: "Combo deal....It might not sound funny to many but my 21 hour lay over gave me an opportunity to visit instabul and that was great."
Cons: "Last minute gate assigned and then changed"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food and crew language proficiency."
Pros: "Generally roomy and comfortable... smooth travels"
Cons: "Second leg of trip had no werking monitors. no WiFi on any flights...."
Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful, and a couple was very helpful in getting me a better seat because I'm 6'4", and for some reason, the ticket people feel it's ok to put me in the middle between people when the extra room seats seem to be given to short people. 3 Flight Attendants worked hard to find me an open aisle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Air's seats are too small, with horrible leg room, and they always have their planes too hot. They have to do something about it because if you're over 6' tall, it will be a horribly uncomfortable flight, especially when that flight is 13 hours."
Pros: "they do really their best- they have a good standard."
Cons: "english is hard to understand"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Flight time was changed 5 times."

Cons: "The gate was a good 15-20 minutes walk from the main duty free area of the terminal with not much signage indicating this. The touch function on my inflight entertainment screen lagged a bit and there was no USB charging offered"
Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."
Pros: "Cabin attendants tried to be helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "food was very unimaginative, way too much carbohydrates, and little attention to a healthy diet. Movies were constantly being interrupted by announcements - like 20 times per movie. This was on flight from Istambul to NYC, not the one from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The crew member that was in my area was really nasty, all the other ones where great! They had to cover for her ... she did a very bad job ."
Cons: "The pasta was hard , looked like cardboard. My daughters could not eat , they ordered that and by the time we had a chance to let them know it was not possible to eat , they run out of other option. The next meal was pasta again , no other option ... so they where not able to eat the whole 12 hours flight."
Cons: "My tv and monitor didnot work...10 hour flight was sooo awfull,pluss i couldnt charge my phone ...When i ask to find me a seat they couldnt and i asked for upgaded seat they have seats but they are not allowed to put me there......10 hour flight I staired at the black screen tv..I paid same amount of money as theothers but got less service and crew didnt even bother the help"
Pros: "good job rushing us to the correct gate"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Food was so so. Turkish offers free excursions into Istambul for passengers staying over 6 hours. The excursion departs at 12p.m. This flights arrives at 11.25 a.m., but the lines in immigration are stupidly long. We arrived at the counter at 12.15. In a very unfriendly way, they explained the excursion had left, and no possibilities for joining it in Town. So, we were stuck at the airport for several hours. How stupid is to offer an excursion to passengers in layover, but program a flight with 300 passengers to arrive just in time to miss the excursion? Somebody has to think this over. This excursion should leave at 12.30, and it would avoid dozens of passengers stuck and unhappy."
Pros: "Nothing important"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Overall smooth flight. Arrived time at Atarurk airport and well managed by flight crew and ground staff."
Cons: "They forgot to invite passengers with small children to board first. In flight service was good but seemed to be a bit slow as there was only one flight attendant serving half the economy cabin. They used to do a second drink service on this flight which was really nice before. Food was ok but TK has had better food on my other flights. The meatballs aren't as good as some of their more flavourful suppers."
Pros: "The crew in Nigeria were very helpful. Hated the food but hey plane food is always bad in economy. Loved the inflight movies"
Pros: "The Flight Attendants were really nice."

Pros: "such an accommodating airline. Great customer service"
Pros: "Food and tv"
Cons: "Crew was a little bit rude"
Pros: "The quality of service, food and beverage variety, entertainment selection, and overall aircraft condition were superb. From the fresh flowers in the toilet rooms to the selection of top shelf alcohol, it was all first class, and all of this in economy. People who have not flown them will be amazed."
Cons: "The only thing I was disappointed in was the fact that the aircraft was a Boeing 777 which is new, but less roomy than the Airbus A330."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Vegetarian meal remembered. Service was good, pleasant crew. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Late depature. Seats not that comfortable. Headphones are really bad quality. Touch screen difficult to use (not very responsive to touch)."
Pros: "Great food, awesome service, great movies, and lots of space. I wish airlines in the States were this good. Nothing else compares."
Pros: "The entertainment selection"
Seats had no padding. Uncomfortable. Everything was held up because of SLOW people with multiple children.
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed so missed the connection. Had to pay $120 for hotel because the next flight was next day. Had to pick up luggage from connecting city and re check them the next day. Seat tray was crooked in the plane."
Cons: "One cookie with tea is not enough at this time of day! Especially if there had no chance to eat dinner before the flight."
Pros: "Best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "A free upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Food and rounds for drinks"
Pros: "The flight crew & the flight itself was great."

Pros: "On time with excellent care by staff"
Cons: "Long walk on the airport for connecting flight"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Cons: "We had reserved a gluten free meal for my wife. When I went to check in it was gone from our reservation. The crew attempted to put something together so she would have food to eat but the response from their customer support team on the phone was not great. I recommend verifying all meals twice before 48 hours out. On a 7+ hour flight this is not fun."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good selections of movies for entertainment. Polite flight attendants. Overall a relaxing trip."
Cons: "Weak selection of TV shows for entertainment, but movies selections were very good so overall not a real problem."

Cons: "Not enough room for food tray to come down. Food was horrible."
Pros: "The crew was great. There was a nice amount of personal space. The movie and music selection was quite good. The food was decent for flight food."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The boarding process and the fees"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was pretty good,"
Pros: "Not much good to say about these connections when the Rome flight runs late."
Cons: "Way to close connection in Frankfurt to go from Terminal A through passport control and try to make it over to terminal Z- especially during spring break with all the school groups traveling. Missed my flight from Frankfurt to Houston."
Pros: "The staff was good to me when I became ill on the flight with a migraine."
Cons: "When I paid for my seat in advance it said I had an exit row, but when I got on the flight it was not. The food was also horrible."
Cons: "Worst hospitality. Asked for water, never came to serve. Had to remind and call couple of times."
Cons: "The food was a bit over cooked and dry but overall excellent service."
Cons: "Stroller damaged by cargo people"
Pros: "The boarding process was orderly, the seats comfortable, plenty of luggage space, excellent food -- one of the best economy class flights I've taken."
Pros: "Lots of room on a 747 - Lufthansa will probably retire them all soon. They handled my special meal request online and loaded the meals on the plane."
Cons: "The crew didn’t bother to confirm who had requested the special meals, and they perhaps were confused by the size of the wide body rows, so they served my dinner to the passenger in the window seat (seat K) instead of me (seat H) By the time I realized what had happened, my row mate had eaten half the meal. The crew also rammed my knee with a beverage cart while I was dozing. Not the best showing ever..."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No good food"
Pros: "They fed us eventually. We landed safely. Crew wasn't rude."
Cons: "I am only 158cm tall (5 feet 2 inches) and I had no leg room! My knees hit the seat in front of me. The seats were also so narrow that you could not change position at all, so it was very uncomfortable for a 8.5 hour flight. And I weigh less than 45 kg (100lbs). I can't imagine how anyone bigger than me felt. My seat was toward the back of the plane, and it took the crew over an hour to reach us once they started the drink and food carts. One time my row got entirely skipped for the drink cart, even though we were awake. This was a problem because they didn't come by for another 5.5 hours with more water/drinks, and they did not give us water bottles for that time period like Delta does. The food wasn't tasty, but it was eatable. The movie options were great, but that was all I could do on the screen because half of mine did not respond to touch, which meant no games and I could only select movies on the left half of my screen. Weird."
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
Pros: "waited for us to get to gate"
Pros: "Meals and service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was late, They kept us in the plane for 20min And bagages are delay...."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy"
Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great"
Cons: "Everything was good only scary part was when we where about to land the plane suddenly took off again it took everyone by surprise and we had to circle back around again."
Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."
Cons: "The seats are horrendous. I paid for extra room but the armrests don't move. Other airlines have armrest that move in economy seats. No opportunity to rebook online or at the airport. I flew in this route a month before, and since then I've been trying to change the seats. Lufthansa customer service never called me back. When I tried to call, I was put on hold for more than an hour every time. Never flying Lufthansa again."
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight and the movies."
Cons: "I didnt like the crew, they was very caold and not pleasant at all. didnt like the food."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"
