Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The aircraft was very cold and chilly."
Pros: "I loved that the airline offered several meals, snack options and drinks. The attendants were amazing and would highly recommend Singapore airlines to anyone flying internationally"

Cons: "The food was disgraceful, the entertainment, the quality of the movies was poor.."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."
Pros: "Movies selection was great."
Cons: "Food and comfort were not as great as I thought they would be. Not bad, but not worthy of the brand Singapore airlines."

Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
Cons: "Cabin temperature too cool"
Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My seat was very hard"
Pros: "Everything SIA stood for, we experienced it, despite the unfortunate delay which the ground crew couldn't have done much about."
Cons: "Unfortunate delay caused by technical issues. I'm just glad we found it on the ground, instead of in the air. But the delay was REALLY long."
Pros: "Excellent service and attitude from ALL crew! Roomy premier economy!"
Pros: "Staff worked very hard and were very helpful."
Cons: "The staff were run off their feet trying to help the families with babies and toddlers. The flight was not pleasant because of the crying and screaming children around us."
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."
Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "I’ve flown with a lot of airlines in every class. This was an economy class flight and still the food was better than I’ve received in business class on American. The seat was comfortable, the entertainment options varied and extensive and the cabin team were amazing. They clean the bathrooms between uses. Seriously how do other airlines still exist?"
Cons: "No free upgrade? ;-). But that’s unreasonable. I love this airline having not flown with them for 4 years I don’t understand why!"
Cons: "This flight is on an old plane. The entertainment system was dated and the seats didn't recline properly. Food wasn't very good and they offered a very limited selection considering it is a 7-hour flight. Not worth doing Singapore Airlines business class for this leg."

Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Menu is average but get they need to cater for wide variety of tastes"
Pros: "The people were excellent."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The attendants are pleasant to the eye, thats about it."
Cons: "I heard so many good things and was left disappointed. The service from staff try to help and be nice but some of them do not care at all, things like too busy to bring a beverage etc was a tad annoying. dont know if i will use them again"

Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were efficient"

Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."

Pros: "All great experience!!!"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."
Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible. I lost $ buying, because custom in Doha had to take bottle. Its not right. Qatar custom could see in Belgrade and didn't tell me and the same in the Duty Free shop."
Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."
Cons: "The 14 hour flight lacked wifi access and there was no sense of importance to investigate by the crew. In an era when downtime is utilized to stay ahead of work, strong wifi is one of the most crucial requirements for me to elect an airline. Even if all else is good, poor wifi is a deal killer."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "The crew and comfort of the flying ship is excellent."
Cons: "No one stopped several children from screaming almost the entire flight. I’m thinking they need to put all families with children younger than 8 behind a partition. HAHA!! Just kidding. But that was very frustrating."
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."
Pros: "In time ,food"
Cons: "My baggage was lost!"
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Nothing to be liked on this Flight"

Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Checking in was very lengthy and boring. More check in counters could ease the situation."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."
Cons: "Seat not very good"
Cons: "Extremely small leg pitch"
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
Cons: "Main course is not enough"
Pros: "We enjoyed the comfort, food , staff and entertainment."
Cons: "The queuing for check-in, luggage control and plane boarding was much too long, 1 1/2 hrs +. The online check-in couldn't be used."
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."
Pros: "Crew attention and care"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats- Space between seats is very tight"
Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "they have a good movie selection"
Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
Pros: "Too narrow seats"
Cons: "The cabin crews were not supportive enough - delayed service and sometimes even denied service like drinks"
Pros: "Everything was good and easy"
Pros: "They were very supportive. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."
Pros: "Cabin crew services"
Cons: "Food could have better"
Pros: "Ladies worked hard"
Cons: "I now understand how the chicken and live stock must feel in their cages and stalls. Perhaps the CEO and management staff must be made to take the same flights in the same conditions in so called Economy class. So much greed! Hoping for the day, Air travel becomes obsolete."
Pros: "Everything about it"
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"
Pros: "Quality airline -new and clean plane with good seats and AV set up"
Cons: "length of flight...."
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!!"
Cons: "The flight attendances were rude. Lot of mosquitoes inside the aircraft. Mosquitoes were every where. The aircraft were dirty and did not clean. under the seat trash, passenger food table was dirty, I had to ask crew member for napkin to clean. I would not recommend any one to take emirates. certainly i would not fly emirates again."
Pros: "Good service upon check in and in flight."
Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."
Pros: "Onboard comfort and entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding from Dhaka in business is worst than economy class from most location. There were mosquitos in the plane, food quality was not thrilling and crew was caring but needs a little more experience for business class."
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: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "better than super stinky American carriers"
Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Pros: "Timeliness, behavior of crew. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Food quality, seat sizes, comfort of the seats is not good. There were belligerent passengers that kept on drinking alcohol on the flight and even lit up a cigarette in the restroom. The persons involved should have been arrested for causing a disturbance on the flight."
Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Pros: "Reservation and boarding process are good. The condition of the aircraft is excellent. Onboard service is also good."
Cons: "The taste of food served was far below standard. I had hard time eating their food. Emirates used to serve better food in the past but in recent time the quality has worsen."
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: "Crew is very friendly and fast when you turn on the help sig."
Cons: "I can't handle any kind of spicness in my food. I understand you guys try to give out food similar to the place your visiting, but I wish you guys gave out an option of non spicy food just like you do for vegetarians. I would also like to suggest that your crew members come more frequently to give out water. And the last thing I want to say is the most important, Boarding the plane was such a hassle. I would like to suggest that a crew member should come out and organize the way people are going to be boarding. They can say something like, "seats # A-C can you place stand on the left and Busniness Class on the right" instead of having everyone crowd to the front and be pushing each other. Or have those rope lines like they do at banks and make the people form a line."
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "I enjoyed excellent service of this airline"
Cons: "It seems to me that the flights to India are a little more cramped than the ones from the West to Dubai."
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Cons: "Crews were rude"
Pros: "Check-in counter associate was very rude and the wait was too long"
Cons: "The wait and the treatment without any greetings or respect"
Cons: "Boarding was so messy. Not organized at all. Discipline among passengers and ground crew is missing!"
Cons: "It was too cold and the blanket was too light"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "In flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Had requested for wheel chair assistance but was denied saying everyone was " too busy". When the passenger stated she cannot go without help, the flight attendant helped her out and to a bus. She almost fell while getting on to the bus. Assistance was requested because of her poor eye sight on the left eye and issues with mobility because of that. Although I'm glad nothing bad happened, denial of assistance and making her feel concerned and speak for herself for someone to help could have been avoided if Emirates could keep their promised support. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Pros: "Both the crew and the persons in reception were really helpful!"
Cons: "The bus connection from runway to dubai airport wasn't comfortable. It took 40 mins to get to the airport and still I didn't have a good support to hang onto during the journey (I was standing)."
Pros: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"
Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Pros: "Good crew lots of food and open bar."
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "Not much I liked at all for the rave I’ve been hearing."
Cons: "Crew needs attitude adjustments, as well as the whole aircraft could use a makeover - it’s completely outdated. Plus, the layover in Istanbul was horrible! There were people not wearing masks, and airport staff wasn’t even enforcing any safety even if they saw wrong things happening."
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Pros: "Crew are good ,seats were more than ok"
Cons: "Better seats and headphones to listen to the intertainmen system"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the extra care package and warm towels were a plus. The food was good too."
Pros: "Amazing crew, confortable seats, great complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Food was not up to standards, the inflight entertainment does not offer enough film or TV shows, enough variety or latest films"
Pros: "It was 8 hours late!!!! There was hundreds of people stranded at the Dhaka airport; elderly kids!!! The airline or the airport had no information on why there was this horrendous delay. No announcement- Nothing. I’ll never take Turkish Airlines again in my life."
Cons: "Some kind of announcement would’ve been helpful. There customer service: hire some people who at least knows and acknowledges that there is a delay."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good Turkish food, plenty of movie choices, etc. Overall good."
Cons: "Seating space just too small for tall people: elbow room and front distance (awkward eating with long arms in confined space). But This is standard for most airplanes in economy class."
Pros: "Sandwich was good and the seats had good padding and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "almost everything"
Cons: "Old entertainment system with no choice of movies"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible, flight was late, no communication from the crew. Captain barely spoke English"
Cons: "Check in process with unfriendly and unprofessional staff"
Cons: "Flights were delayed for 24 hours!!!! Do not take this airlines. Inside the airport they can't even speak English. They are rude and raciest. No wheelchair were provided for the old people."
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 8 hours. The food was horrible."
Pros: "Food, entertainment and service"
Cons: "No boarding in Turkey airport, difficult to get down and up after long flight, narrow sitting space"
Pros: "Entertainment, and the plane which felt really new and comfy."
Cons: "Food was a bit boring (because it was such a short flight, I suppose)"
Pros: "The security and service throughout the flight was very good for the price we paid."
Cons: "The transit time was a bit short for my trip from NYC to DAC."
Pros: "we ware attisefy for are first time in bisness clas"
Cons: "Clientele on plane are junky. The crew is rude. Boarding is chaotic. No information about delays or why things are taking so long not shared. Planes feel old and dirty. Strongly do not recommend."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Almost nothing specially the flight from Dhaka, If I known that the level of business class is like that, I would have bought economy"
Pros: "In economy class,was the best space and service I experienced so far! I was surprised by the level of service!"
Pros: "Food was good on both flights."
Cons: "Seating was terrible. We were in the 2nd row of the normal seats on the right side of the plane. The space between the rows of seats was much to tight, so I had to turn my legs to the side to fit into the space. I am 6'. However, I noticed that the row across from me had about 4" inches of additional space so I am thinking that the row I was on was set in error. This needs to be fixed. Also, they were much to late in turning on the air conditioning as we loaded and waited for takeoff."
Pros: "Clean, food ok but meed imp"
Cons: "Miss boarding bridges"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Price price and price"
Cons: "They should serve Asian food for asian flights"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, food was incredible, service awesome, awesome airline"
Cons: "The cushioning on 777-300 is too thin and not so comfortable for such a long trip but that is the price we have to pay for not being in business class"
Cons: "Economy isn't supposed to be amazing but those seats need help"
Cons: "Cabin temperature too high, the flight attendants borderline rude and always on a hurry, I mean what's the hurry durin a 12:30 hours long haul flight. Turkish airlines has decreased its quality of service."
Cons: "I asked for water but they didn't give it to me. They said they would give it water the same time when they gave tea"
Pros: "They were out of the chicken in meal even before they got to a quarter of people. They did neither had an option of vegetarian diet. So basically you cannot eat anything but the sandwiches if you don't eat beef."
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours. We got a few drinks and snacks while waiting. No real information was provided and the flight was delayed by one hour at a time. Kids were tired and hungry. Crew did not help. After a few hours we got some blankets. We had to sleep on the airport's floor. We had to buy food. We did not know what will happen with our connection flights that most of the passengers missed because of the delay. This was a nightmare!"
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "I didn't like the food, crew. Most crews didn't SMILE, din't greet properly. It is very disappointing. Why they don't Smile? During my trip to Atl to Istambul I asked one crew to give me some water. But she didn't give me. After then I asked another crew. It made me very upset. I am not satisfied about food. It is not standard. It needs to be improved. Train your crews how to SMILE and Greet."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and respectful"
Cons: "I asked to be upgraded to the first class since I wasn't feeling well. There were many vacant seats and I was willing to pay the difference but I did not given any response other than they couldn't do it while boarding."

Pros: "Nothing except the fast commute"
Cons: "Food was horrible, the air port and plain service was horrible"
Pros: "Missed the flight for 5 minutes because of wrong information being given to us then tried to get help and no one is there to help for Turkish airlines . Called multiple times and was being hung up on multiple times and after finally getting through the custimer service representative was extreamly rude and was threatening to hang up the phone because I was asking her what I should do next . At the end of the day no Turkish airline associate was able to help us and had to buy another ticket with Emirats . Tar table customer service and just took our money regardless of us flying with you guys. Coming back my mother was sick and we tried to get our ticket dates increased but still wasn't able to and now my mother has to buy another ticket with another airline just because Turkish airline was the worse experience we have ever had and we always fly international ."
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3 am. Not was delayed till 4:30. I had only 25 minutes to catch the other flight. I made it last minute. I asked the Turkish airline representative at the gate if my bag is on the plane. He said "yes". When I arrived to London I couldn't fibd my bag. I spent more than an hour looking for it since the employee assured me it was loaded to the plane, the person who was waiting to pick me yo had to pay around 15£ parking and wait for one hour and a half. I arrived without luggage. I have everything in the bag, my umbrella, jacket, cloths, pajamas, underwater, everything... the allowance that Turkish Airlibe said they will give allowed me to only buy a Pajama. I am totally NOT satisfied. I will not travel on this Airlibe again"
Pros: "For economy... seats were comfortable, great entertainment system, very good food with ample portions, very good service, good size bathrooms. One of the best experiences in economy for me and my wife (and we were on two Turkish flights for a total of 20 hours!) - and we travel alot!"

Pros: "Good airline. One passenger got sick from Dhaka to Istanbul flight and the plane had to make an emergency landing in New Delhi, India. We were en route again after couple of hours. However, we missed our connecting flight from Istanbul to IAD. But Turkish Airlines took care of us. Gave us hotel accommodation, food, etc. and even the visa fee. Also, being an elite member, was also able to use and enjoy the newly built CIP lounge at the Istanbul Airport while waiting for the flight to IAD."

It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"
