Airline reviews

Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and served snacks and beverages at regular intervals. One of the fellow passengers was over reacting to some minor unintentional neglect by an female crew member and told her to shut up when she was trying to understand the issue. But the crew handled the situation very professionally."
Cons: "Food could’ve been better."

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."

Pros: "All great experience!!!"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Very happy on Doha to ORD"

Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

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: "nice crew, great service"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing for kids. First time i have seen that no toys for kids. No tv and entertaiment for adults"

Pros: "Awesome leg room in economy. Helpful staff."
Cons: "Main courses weren’t all the great."

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

Cons: "TOOO long."

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"

Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."

Pros: "Food and flight attendants were excellent in Business Class"
Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"

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: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Cons: "Too many security screenings including the airline’s itself.!!!"

Pros: "The service on board is excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight crew was quick to provide food and drinks but quality of the food was not as good as Emirates."
Cons: "-carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways, which then takes up space for other passengers. Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes. Basically, carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on purpose or by engineering error, and this makes me not want to fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class."

Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"

Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."

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: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."

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: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."

Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"

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."

Pros: "The classy servieces in the plane..the plane it selfe is excellant"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "timing"

Cons: "My overhead light didn't work, my tray was broken, my headset was faulty (they replaced it on my 3rd request, my luggage didn't appear on the carousel for 1 hour and 50 minutes."

Pros: "Great service by the flight crew! Friendly and competent. Food is decent but not quite up to Emirates. Kudos to QA for investing in the A-350. Quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."

Pros: "The entertainment was great."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I was disappointed when i tried to change my departure date. I was told one price and was charged a full round trip price at the end."
Cons: "Be more clear when explaining charges and fees including taxes"

Pros: "Very nice crew."

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as passport security had reported that I was intoxicated. I was badly injured in the armed forces and have lost my hearing which affects my balance. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy as s personal trainer. But was given seat E. Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too. Totally disgusted with the whole flight and crew when everytime I've used the same company before it was excellent."

Cons: "Crew missed our rows a couple of times with drinks. Seat on flight from Dubai to Sydney not vey comfortable,"

Pros: "Just such a smooth journey."

Pros: "Crew were excellent"

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: "Very efficient. Fab selection of movies."
Cons: "I am lacto vegetarian but my only option was vegan. Second meal was a banana and some tired bits of pepper and carrot. Surely an airline like Emirates can offer a meat-free option!"

Pros: "Excellent service with very friendly staff. Everything ran so smoothly. For such a large aircraft I expected to have to queue up for boarding and exiting. No queuing, everything was so coordinated."
Cons: "There was nothing that displeased me on this trip."

Pros: "Crew was excellent but seemed stretched ."
Cons: "Overall ICE was great but didn't seem to have many new films"

Pros: "Friendly, capable crew. Seats very comfortable - properly flat/horizontal beds."
Cons: "Connection was too rushed in Dubai. It seemed odd that they treated it as a night flight (dark cabin), given that it left at 10am - is this for the convenience of the staff?"

Pros: "The ground staff at Gatwick was friendly, helpful and efficient."

Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."

Cons: "length of flight...."

Pros: "Pleasant staff, good lounges"

Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."

Pros: "Nice ontime flight."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. All of them. They gave me great service. It was once of the best long haul flights I've had in economy. Fantastic. I was seated in seat 80H. Please see to it that the cabin crew who serviced this area are well rewarded. If every flight had crew like these guys and gals then flying would be a lot more enjoyable."
Cons: "I really can't find anything to complain about."

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: "380's mostly comfortable serious entertainment system and well trained,efficient ,friendly staff."

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: "Price."
Cons: "Crew attitude. Business seat was broken and they could have cared less. Business Class on A380 is a joke. Narrow seats, too few disorganised crew arguing amongst themselves and a bad attitude off at least three of them."

Pros: "Excellence !!!"

Pros: "So easy to check in and tranfer at Dubai"
Cons: "Quite difficult at times to manage the film options on screen"

Pros: "The staff is super friendly and professional."
Cons: "I paid for an assigned window seat (18K) at the front of the plane. However when I arrived to my seat I was told that there is a handicap person in my room and I can't sit there and was offered a seat in the back of the plane. Yes of course I understand and wouldn't want to move a handicap person to get to my seat but at the same time I believe the seat assignment fee which I paid in advance should be refunded."

Pros: "Just about everything"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "The crew and flights were very good,I could not find any fault with them."
Cons: "I require assistance due to a spinal injury which makes walking and standing difficult but not impossible. When we arrived at Dubai I was told my name was not on the list for assistance even though I had been taken to the flight in a wheelchair and informed check-in and flight crew. The Emerates assistance people made it seem as if they were doing us a favour by assisting us,made us stand around waiting for a buggy then for the train at no time did they show any respect or compassion for the people they were supposed to be assisting."

Pros: "So great to still fly with some comfort in this day and age, especially with the awful experience flying American carriers. Great crew, very friendly."

Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."

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: "I ordered Asian vegetarian food but was given normal vegetarian food. However, it wasn't a big problem. Apart from that, everything was fine."

Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."

Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

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: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"

Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Enjoyed my flight on both legs especially the Dubai to Durban. The crew were very attentive and helpful on this section of the flight."

Pros: "Overall, the flight was great!"
Cons: "The seats could have been wider, as they were a bit tight. Would have liked more leg room. My son got sick during the landing. I pushed the assistance button several time during and after landing and none of the crew ever responded, the just ignored it. That was rather disappointing..."

Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"

Pros: "Emirates was the referrer only. The flight was a Qantas flight hence same as any other Qantas flight. The fish dinner choice was over cooked."
Cons: "I like the luggage allowance-- more realistic than other airlines. The attendants were attentive but perhaps a little overdone on the fake smiles except for the main attendant who had the stressed/more straight-faced look for some strange reason. i probably should have been more tuned into the mechanical visual entertainment on board instead. Got to watch two movies which was great!"

Pros: "Great aircrafts, big screens, attentive personnel"

Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"

Cons: "Outstanding"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "Crew was awesome."

Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."

Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"

Pros: "Good seats, great staff, good food, luggage service on time, excellent price!!"

Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."

Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."

Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"

Cons: "I got in a car accident on the way to the airport for my flight. I went in an ambulance to the ER and had a doctors note that I was safe to fly the next day. When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"

Pros: "Entertainment options good"

Pros: "Largely pain free experience"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."

Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."

Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"

Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."

Pros: "It went all ok except the space between rows"
Cons: "Slow service by crew and space between seats"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "crew was excellent."

Pros: "Efficient and pleasant. Affordable and most importantly very clean!"
Cons: "Old style lie flat (but not horizontal) seats"

Pros: "We like that everything was on time. The food service was excellent and we enjoyed that entertainment was provided on such a short flight."

Pros: "Smooth and easy, pleasant staff and service flight."

Pros: "crew was wonderful."
Cons: "leg room slightly tight for 12 hour flight."

Cons: "Not enough movie varities."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "9 hours layover in Istanbul was too long ."

Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"

Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"

Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."

Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."

Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."

Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."

Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"

Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."

Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."

Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"

Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was no good. The airplane was so hot sometimes I couldn't breathe"

Pros: "Great flight. On time, crew was courteous and well trained. Seats comfortable with a good entertainment system. Good food."
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"

Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."

Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."

Pros: "Crew is great, Food is good. Overall experience is excellent. Recommend 100% ."

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"

Pros: "Pilot communication"
Cons: "Free snacks & drinks"

Cons: "More legroom."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Efficient speedy boarding but slow at Dubrovnik airport going through passport check"
Cons: "Free drink on board would have been nice as paid more especially for BA but apart from the baggage allowance and quick processing there was little to differentiate from a budget airline"

Pros: "Planes are well maintained"
Cons: "Rigid attitude of the staff that goes the extra mile to find ways to irritate and upset clients"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "Good flight, no complaints"

Pros: "See above, ditto."

Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."

Pros: "Everything it was painless"

Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"

Pros: "Check in staff and Crew are brilliant. Always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Some aircraft are a little ‘tired’ and a few things don’t quite work as they should. For example my wife’s headphone socket was broken, and therefore no in flight entertainment. But we managed. It was reported to the crew and they immediately set about recording it for attention at next maintenance and changed our seats, so no complaints there. A few of the entertainment screens are scratched, and the controls faulty. But still usable with a little perseverance."
Cons: "Seat row spacing too close. There is little point of a reclining seat because using it greatly inconveniences the passenger behind."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."

Pros: "fast efficient, lovely crew,"
Cons: "shame B.A. is turning into a budget airline, despite the high standards of service trying to be maintained by the excellent crews."

Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"

Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."

Pros: "The captain and first officer were extremely courteous and professional . I was impressed at the way the captain managed the delayed departure taking time to brief the passengers at the boarding gate. When we eventually changed planes and moved to another gate to board it all went without a hitch."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."

Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."

Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"

Pros: "see above"
