Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was able to get rest"
Pros: "This was not to positive off a flight."
Cons: "Boarding easy, I am Handicapped, but arrival was a joke. Was never offered assistance. After 12 hours on a plane with braces on both legs you have to walk about a half mile to baggage and stand in lines to get out."
Pros: "Crew was friendly food was great, flight was safe."
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "Good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I liked sleeping"
Cons: "The flight attendants don’t understand English well so asking for water or some items I was completely ignored. To make up for lack of WiFI actually the entertainment system is awful. They ran out of food items and did not return to replenish drinks or remove waste"
Pros: "Great crew, good food, easy to watch entertainment , and food better than most airlines"
Pros: "Everything, from boarding to departure, the service is excellent! The staff was attentive and very welcoming. Spending a few hours reminded me why I fell in love with SK in the first place."

Pros: "Got me there and back on time!"
Cons: "Could've had a larger movie selection"
Pros: "Very clean and polite flight crew."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose my seat at 24hr check in so I was stuck in the middle and getting out was awkward as I would have to wait for person in aisle seat to eat, wake up or get up themselves."

Pros: "On both of my long haul flights I had very nice, new planes to fly on which were very clean. Staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating despite having a huge number of people to attend to. Food was good when I ate it. Seats reclined very nicely and there was the most room I've had on a flight ever. Still cramped, but you take what you can get! Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "2 complaints I would pose. 1. If we're flying on a super long flight overnight, do you have to turn on every light in the pane to serve food? Can we not keep it kind of dim while literally everyone is trying to sleep? Also, why are you serving a meal at 3AM?! I know we took off 2 hours ago and people may want food before we get into the bulk of the trip, but it's 3AM! Everyone just wants to sleep and now the lights are on and you're offering me a full meal?! Believe me, it's great that you're trying to keep me fed, but come on, we've got 12 hours of flight left to go! 2. The movies offered were really sub par. The "new releases' only had a handful of movies I'd even heard of before and only like 3 I even cared to watch. The "movie classics" were the same way. Gotta step up your movie options when I'm trapped in your plane for 14 hours."

Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been. I thought it was a one time issue but it was also hot on the flight back as well."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."

Horrible."
Pros: "comfortable seats, pretty good food, extremely gracious cabin crew."
Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the flight."
Cons: "TOOO long."
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Pros: "Stewards and Stewardess were very prompt and always had a smile!"
Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."

Pros: "Flight service"
Pros: "Nothing. As flight was rerouted and airline changed"

Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."
Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"
Pros: "Crew were nice as always and the toilets were clean."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't that great and food was disappointing. My meal was cold and unappetizing. Vegetarian food can be delicious and vegetarian meals used to be good in QA. I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Flight. Conections"
Cons: "Change flexibility, helpfulness"
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Pros: "Intertainment was very good"
Cons: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"
Cons: "Other passengers pushing, coughing & sneezing without proper sanitary measures; dirty toilets. This reflects on the education level of passengers, not the crew, but it still makes flying into Jeddah on packed flights particularly miserable."
Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Food was above average."
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush. No entertainment guys? Really?"
Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "it is a nice program it's wonderful for flying out good price on for totally is excellent website"
Cons: "Not much leg room on economy class. 200 $ extra makes the trip better"

Pros: "I cancelled flight and you charged full amount as cancellation amount."
Cons: "The are not nice at all"
Pros: "شكرا لكم"
Pros: "Just needed a chance to rest during this long trip and that was possible. Slept well, had a nice meal and arrived ready to go. First trip on Turkish Airlines but will absolutely be back. Crew was great!"
Pros: "The crew handled 2 incidents exceedingly diplomatically with an impossible man seated next to me. The incidents had nothing to do with me. At the beginning of the flight he was refusing to close 4 window shades that were bothering someone on the other side of the plane, and at the end of the flight he refused to return his headsets as we were landing. The crew were amazingly polite with him. He was completely out of line."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection in Istanbul due to late arrival from Nairobi."
Pros: "This flight on an A330 had big touch screens which worked well. Seats were spaced apart with good room and were fairly comfortable. Nice, friendly crew."
Pros: "The New York operation seemed much better. Our flight arrived late and was met by airline representatives looking to help passengers with tight connections. Arriving transfer passengers must go through Turkish airport security. Turkish security did set up an operation right at the gate. This both expedited things and relieved the stress of going through the process far from the gate."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The plane was an older Boeing 777 (it had no winglets) and I think the seat cushion was the original one. Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information."
Pros: "Food personnel"
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"
Pros: "Check in process, helpful ground crew and airplane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats are horrible for a trip so far, they need more cushion."
Cons: "Plane was hot on the flight going TK 6. Flight on the way back TK 5 was much better."
Pros: "Everything! Thanks"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to get a simple luggage name tag after asking several staff employees. That’s crazy."
Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."
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."
Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"
Pros: "The service, food,seats,crew,hot towel, slippers & more."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "I have a trip from Manchester to Riyadh and I have a stop in Istanbul.

They told me that the sestem moved your seat to the second plane but now the plane is open. ? I waited 6 hours at Ataturk airport and had a working meeting I could not attend"
Cons: "Even though it’s only a 4 hours direct flight, They lost my baggage!!!"

Pros: "Ground and air staff"
Cons: "Seats a bit too crowded"
Pros: "One of the best airlines over the world"
Pros: "The food on Turkish is excellent, and it seems they come through every hour to offer water, coffee or tea between meals.

Cons: "Plane was really old. They desperately need to upgrade their fleet."
Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"

I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!!

I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."
