Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "food is ok"

Pros: "I enjoyed everything! My first flight was a little over 10 hours, but it didn't feel that way. I was very comfortable and the crew took very good care of all of the passengers. Japan Airlines is Ichi Ban!!!"

Pros: "As expected everything was not overly done nor less of comfort and services. The food was Excellent quality and prepared with care. The airplane was new types and flew fast and smooth."
Cons: "The Kansai airport was huge and super fancy. Shere number of people were like the Zoo and its designed to move people through all the retail shops to get to my gate."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."

Pros: "Food was really good!!! It was way"

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat felt stiff but felt well rested after flight"

Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."

Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"

Pros: "Japan airport is big and too much shopping needs to be done, and liked the fact that boarding started just 15 minutes before departure which gave me ample amount of time."
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't the greatest. The mid-flight meal was a burger instead of the beloved ramen."

Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 787 and very comfortable. Uneventful flight."
Cons: "Menu in business class."

Pros: "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."

Pros: "Yes, it was great."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, eager to help. Flight arrived on time."

Cons: "if the seat can be reclined a little more"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The food was really great! And the entertainment was fantastic! I would absolutely fly with them again the next time I book a trip."

Pros: "The staff of ANA are so friendly and accommodating. When checking in, the woman at the counter moved me to a window seat from the middle, free of charge. They were very patient and helpful."
Cons: "The food was a little strange, I had salmon and rice as “breakfast” with iceberg lettuce side salad. The pieces of salmon were little shreds with a funky taste. Not bad, but not what I wanted on a long red eye flight. Also I wish there’d been more Hollywood movie selections."

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"

Pros: "Crew was prompt and courteous Entertainment choice was good"
Cons: "1. The seat width is small for comfortable sleeping 2. Choice of non-Japanese food can be enhanced 3. Flight boarding was delayed beyond announced delayed departure also"

Pros: "The service was exceptional"

Pros: "Your crew.they are wonderful,we are flying with ANA this morning we hope to have the same experience.thank you."
Cons: "There isn't a bad comment."

Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."

Pros: "The crews' smile and politeness were excellent."
Cons: "The line was way long to check in at the Narita International Airport."

Pros: "The 787 was awesome. Very comfortable. Great staff and service."

Pros: "The service...the food...the entertainmrnt....tq tq tq"

Cons: "Seats are almost impossible to sit comfortably for such a long flight. Not nearly enough legroom."

Pros: "Ground staff and in-flight crew were excellent. The food was very good. The business class seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Got flagged for secondary screening prior to boarding, although it probably wasn't ANA's decision. Video quality of the In-flight entertainment wasn't that great. The AC power plug could have been in a better spot. My power adapter would not fit."

Pros: "I traveled with my wife and twin sons who turned two last month. It was our first time to fly with the boys, and we were nervous about the flight for this reason. Thanks to ANA's staff both on the ground and in the air, everything went very smoothly. When we arrived at Haneda Airport (around 1:30pm), we went to the Special Assistance counter to get a stroller. The staff was friendly and patient, and didn't rush us at all. (It took a little while to get our things in order.) I was surprised to learn that we could check in from there, drop off our checked luggage and receive boarding passes, as well as an airport stroller. In addition, the boy who was awake at the time received an ANA airplane clip. We didn't get to the gate in time for pre-boarding. I was dismayed to find out that we'd have to take a bus to the aircraft. We had the maximum number of carry-on bags, plus two babies, only one of whom was in a carrier, and we learned that the stroller couldn't go on the bus. A gate agent brought our carry-ons onto the bus. She found priority seats for us and a place nearby to fit a bag that couldn't fit on one of our laps. On board, the cabin attendants were attentive and friendly, and gave toys to the boys. When we arrived at Hagi-Iwami Airport, two of them even carried all of our carry-on bags off the plane for us. (They also helped with our carry-on luggage upon returning to Tokyo. In fact, we had forgotten to reserve a stroller for when we deplaned, and a flight attendant tried to find one near the gate, to no avail.) When I think about all the positive experiences we had in a span of about three and a half hours, I am amazed at all the different people who helped to make our journey easier. I cannot imagine it happening in my home country or on most airlines I have flown."
Cons: "Only the fact that we had to take a bus to the aircraft at Haneda, but the gate agents made it very easy for us."

Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."

Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."

Cons: "Lack of airline professional staff at lax airport. There's no set person in charge. We had an emergency return and no one can explain or give us answers for rebooking our flights."

Pros: "The flight was extremely comfortable. Entertainment was 10 on a scale of 1 to 10."
Cons: "Only one entrance into the plane. I was in the last row. Had to walk the length of the plane. Having a second entrance could rapidly reduce boarding time."

Pros: "Overall experience was excellent. Seating as spacious in economy as I have had in some airlines' premium economy. Food was fresh and quite tasty although nothing to rave about. The staff are always a delight on ANA."
Cons: "The Hollywood entertainment options were limited and not very interesting."

Pros: "Food was good also"

Pros: "Very good experience with ANA."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "More of an movie selection. Maybe up date movie ever 2-3 weeks as they become available for the company"

Cons: "Wifi is a rip off. I bought 1 hour of wifi and didnt last for 1 minute. Really hoping that i can get a refund for it"

Pros: "Clean, friendly and the 787 Dreamliner was great, be sleep with 2 different families little ones keeping me awake."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Interior show signs of aging"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Although flight was delayed slightly with boarding, flight crew maintained same flight time, thus not adding any further delays."
Cons: "Meal options and/or supplied should be expended to expend options passengers have, especially if one option runs out."

Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful, I was having a sore throats and asked for a candy if possible, the crew answered immediately yes and came back with throat candies that I exactly wished for."
Cons: "The flight was having pretty bad turbulence but there was no explanation from the pilot or anything. Also I also took the same flight on my way to Mexico from Tokyo about 10 days ago but there was better food and beverage sevice."

Pros: "Movies!"
Cons: "Vegetarian food options."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, clean toilets"
Cons: "Flight attendant missed our breakfast and when reminded didn't even apologize. old aircraft"

Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."

Pros: "service and comfort in Premium economy"
Cons: "ANA's food quality went down so much. Its basically as bad as united meals. Very sad."

Pros: "Smooth operations, friendly crew, clean plane, free booze in coach!"
Cons: "Nothing really when flying coach. Second meal now like a box lunch instead of full meal. Cost cutting I guess. Seats are small but not as bad as United domestic. No major complaints."

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."

Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"

Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"

Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Pros: "Staff was reasonable"
Cons: "Little to no leg room on a 15 hour flight while travel with kids was an extremely difficult/painful experience. International airlines have to stop squashing people in the economy class. That is insane."

Pros: "boarding process was efficent"
Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"

Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"

Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."

Pros: "All good thank you + food and crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good thanks"

Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."

Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"

Pros: "Access to entertainments"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"

Pros: "i had to wait for a wheelchair a long as i requested long time ago. i hate this flight"
Cons: "i had to wait for a wheelchair a long as i requested long time ago. i hate this flight"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Cons: "There's not food which was on menu I did not eat"

Pros: "It was comfortable flight with a friendly crew."

Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."

Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."

Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."
Cons: "Dnt have anything to say what I dnt like. Everything is great."

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

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: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"

Pros: "Respect the scheduel and well organize."

Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"

Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"
Cons: "Cost of extra bag. Also size limit for overhead carryon"

Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."

Pros: "Nice and attentive crew Big a330 plane with great business class"

Pros: "The crew were outstanding. They fulfil my needs when I need it and they were very polite and professional. Smooth boarding and flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"

Cons: "We had a huge delay"

Pros: "Friendliness"
Cons: "The boarding by groups could improve the process"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"

Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"

Pros: "Nice crew, lot of space"

Pros: "After having read Swiss Airline reviews I was prepared for a difficult and uncomfortable trip from BOS to ZUR. I was pleasantly surprised to the kindness and comfort I found in the economy class of Swiss Airline. Bags were checked in, flight was timely and legroom was satisfactory. I would highly recommended Swiss Airline due to my overall experience."

Cons: "We didn't fly to Zurich. Instead, we flew from Berlin to Frankfurt to San Francisco to San Diego. Although the alternate airlines did a fine job and we had nice flights thanks to them, we only found out about the change when we arrived at the airport and it caused us multiple inconveniences throughout the day. Our flight from Berlin to Zurich was scheduled to board at 9am, so we left our accommodations at 6:30am so we could arrive at the airport around 7am. It was a rushed, hectic morning and we stayed up late preparing for it the best we could. When we arrived and found out our flight was canceled, we learned our new flight wouldn't board until 11am. So we rushed for no reason and had to spend a considerable amount of extra time at the airport that we could have spent enjoying coffee one last time at a local cafe or something. We planned to fly straight from Zurich to San Diego so we could participate in an interview for our Global entry application (which you can only do when arriving in the US from an international flight). Because we had a brief layover in San Francisco instead, we had no time for this and were unable to do the interview when we arrived in San Diego because it was a domestic flight. The change also caused issues with our luggage. We're not used to checking bags when we fly OR flying internationally with layovers in the US, so we asked the agent at the Swiss desk in Berlin how it would would with both of those aspects in our travel with the itinerary changes. The agent told us our luggage would follow us all the way to San Diego and we didn't have to worry about it. However, we learned once we got to San Diego that our bags were left in San Francisco because apparently we were supposed to pick them up and recheck them, but we had no idea. It was a huge bummer and we wish we would have had more control over our itinerary that day. People book certain flights for certain reasons and need to have a say when their flights need to change."

Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."

Pros: "The plane we were on between Zurich and Copenhagen was comfortable and modern for such a short trip. This was a stark contrast to the old SAS airplane we flew in the opposite direction as a Swiss flight. The staff on the plane were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We missed our original flight due to connection difficulties. We tried to hold this flight (the return flight that we had paid for in our round trip ticket) but when we arrived at the airport we were informed that they had sold our seats. We had to pay $250 USD to fly standby (and "reissue" the tickets that we had already paid for) on a flight that was oversold by at least 6, and we heard other passengers also being told their tickets were sold. Their customer service for the ticket change and the phone calls made before hand where they promised to hold our tickets, were so disappointing, it was like dealing with any US based airline. We won't be flying with them again."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to Denver"

Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "All of the flight crew was personable and ready to accommodate any need we might have. Before we could ever get hungry, the staff was coming down the aisle with another serving of pretty good food!"
Cons: "We did have to wait on the plane for an hour after boarding, but I believe that was mostly due to wind."

Pros: "Quick trip :-)"
Cons: "45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable."

Pros: "Crew memebers were so kind at all times. Even thou’ it was a short flight they gave us a free snack and beverages AND a bonus chocolate!"
Cons: "Nothing it was all great! Even music was playing while we waited on the plane."

Pros: "The seats in exit row were large enough for me to straighten my legs"
Cons: "Very rude attendants. Also if you sit in the exit row they don’t let you put ANYTHING on your lap or by your feet, even a sweatshirt that you remove for a moment. I have never had this problem on any other airline."

Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."

Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"

Cons: "the boarding was weird because of the aircraft change and rearranging of seats. the computer reassigned us very strange, making us seating mostly in one are, while other rows were completely empty."

Pros: "Fast, on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, super uncomfortable"

Pros: "check-in at Kloten,wheelchair assistance, boarding, food, bar, general service, uneventful flight, in short: THE WHOLE TRIP Peter Hz"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth. The crew was friendly and attentive. Even though it was a short flight, we each got a piece of Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff at the airport were great. Once you get on the plane, where the Swiss are, it was awful. I can't believe that an airline from Switzerland knows less about the customer service than Serbs."

Pros: "The food was surprisingly good and the onboard crew was very nice and friendly. The seats seemed slightly more apart than on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The entertainment unit at my seat was really hard to hear, and from what I heard around me it seems like it's a problem at many if not most seats."

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."

Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Provided headphones are horrible and headphone jack only puts out mono when used with a regular set of headphones."

Pros: "Entertainment was great, planes was very clean, the food was excellent and the staff was friendly."

Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Cons: "The wine"

Pros: "Good product, excellent food, great and attentive service"
Cons: "Set quality for Business leaves much to be desired. Feels like sitting in Y with middle seat free."

Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"

Pros: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"

Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."

Pros: "Nothing! It was the first day of our honeymoon, and it was ruined by Swiss."
Cons: "This (attempted) flight was like living a nightmare. The aircraft had a problem with the A/C, so we sat in the extremely hot aircraft on the tarmac for 2 hours while they tried to fix the problem. Then, when we were finally told that the aircraft could not fly, the Swiss staff said that we were "not allowed" to leave the aircraft. After stressed passengers confronted the crew demanding to be let off the aircraft, we went back into the terminal to wait for hours in line as just two Swiss staff filled out hotel vouchers by hand for over 200 passengers. Adding insult to injury, we were then told to wait for a hotel shuttle at the curb, despite the fact that the shuttle had stopped running hours earlier at midnight. I didn't fly to Switzerland until the next day, losing hundreds of dollars on a missed hotel stay in Zurich, and travel plans. And it was an awful start to my honeymoon. The way the Swiss staff treated us was unconscionable and insulting. They have not responded to my several written complaints, so maybe Kayak can help!!!"

Pros: "Food was adequate for economy. Free drinks on trans-Atlantic flights are a nice perk. Cabin crew is friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to incoming aircraft. It was probably not the airline's fault. Berlin Tegel gate area is too small for international flight - not enough seats and nowhere else to wait after security."

Cons: "Very bad service, staff was not polite or helpful"

Pros: "i got a free upgrade to Business Class... which was super awesome! everything about it was great! the regular Economy Class i had on the way there was perfectly good as well. but Business Class was just the best all around."
Cons: "the ridiculous checking-in / boarding process. seems like showing my passport like once or twice would work. it did on my way there. for some reason it was needed like 17,000 times with ridiculously understaffed lines needing to service several hundred people on the way back. absurd."

Pros: "I only like the hand sanitizer and a mask that gave us"
Cons: "The food they service was bad"

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Good movie selections"
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as usual on Turkish flights."

Pros: "big screens, big movie selection, nice drink options, good menu"
Cons: "very small seats! hot on plane, with no optional vents, flight staff did not respond to multiple call button requests"

Pros: "Great options to watch on tv."
Cons: "Flight was late, horrible process at gate of checking passports and items. Should not happen during a layover. This process should take place when checking in."

Pros: "Liked everything about it new planes good food on time excellent crew"

Pros: "the food and service was outstanding as always on Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly Uncomfortable, and I was in Business Class. It seemed to be a newer plane. The seat was like sitting on a bench, not in a seat, and the distance between rows was almost non-existant; it was very distressing and disappointing...."

Cons: "being treated like a drug dealer at the boarding gate #312 and having passport / boarding pass checked several times"

Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."

Pros: "One of the ticket agents, Diego McNuss, was especially kind and helpful when we checked in. He is a credit to the company. Also, so many special touches on the flight, like the warm wipe and the bag with the socks, etc. Also very kind flight attendants."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food could be better esp snacks"

Pros: "To be honest nothing really."
Cons: "Quality of service and quality of plane. Seems most of the flight attendants could care less about the flight passengers."

Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "na"

Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."

Pros: "Again a good solid basic service with good food well prepared and agreeably served by a pleasant staff. Thank you"
Cons: "Planes are a little small for a fairly long haul business service. Nice but small - so basic amenities."

Pros: "Comfortable and uneventful flight - just the way it should be!"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Turkish Airlines is a wonderful airline. They treat all there passengers well. The food was excellent and the cabin crew was multi lingual, pleasant and helpful. They made a long flight very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "I wish the seats had more legroom in economy class."

Pros: "Friendly crew Good food Clean plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. The gate agent herded us all toward a set of doors but didn't open them for about 5 min."

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"

Pros: "As usually, the crew, good, entertainment, and comfort were all marvelous."
Cons: "The boarding process was slower than normal though it seemed out of control of the Turkish Airlines staff."

Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The aircraft looks a little old."

Pros: "You guys are blessed and best of all of time"
Cons: "I didn't hate nothing it was the best"

Pros: "Excellent Service & On time Schedule"

Pros: "They are literally the BEST airline I have every flown! All the crew are so nice and it is their policy to give you all of the comforts - pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including alcohol), movies, musics, games, meals, snacks and probably more! I don't think they have a way to take money! This was the best flying experience I have ever had! The plane itself was also very nice. There was touchscreen in front of me with all kinds of entertainment plus a USB charger for my phone. They also made sure the closest connecting flight folks had gate attendants waiting for them. The service is phenomenal all the way around!"

Pros: "Very friendly and willing crew."
Cons: "Sound through headphones could be better. Hope to have free onboard internet one day!!"

Pros: "The food and amenities were alright."
Cons: "It left late, the plane lost my friend's luggage for a day."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"

Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite. Free alcoholic drinks helped with the long list of negatives aspects of the flight."
Cons: "Every flight was 30+ minutes late. Crew members at the gate were consistently on their phones and delayed service substantially. Not only am I incredibly frustrated that I could not bring my laptop onboard to do work, but the fact I wasn't told until right at boarding and it took extensive time to reclaim it makes Turkish airlines on par with Ryan Air for inconveniencing its customers. At baggage claim, the crew loaded our baggage on the incorrect track, making it take even longer to receive it. Seats and leg room are sub par. As someone who is 6'3, when the person in front of me put their seat back, I was forced to take a metal bar on the back of their seat to my knees (no matter the position). I will be recommending to both family and friends that they should avoid this airline at all costs."

Pros: "Very good legroom"

Pros: "Short"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"

Cons: "Stop over in Istanbul, flight to US. Had to go again through security with not enough staff, stood around 40min in a messy line with no air-conditioning​ or water to go thorough security again. There were elderly people having to do the same. Later, after landing, there was no parking for the airplane, so after 10 hours flight we we're held for 25 minutes inside the airplane. New regulations will make me reconsider using Turkish​ airline for US bound flights, although it's a great company, unless they find a more comfortable and organized way to do the security check."

Pros: "food"
Cons: "leaving late"

Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"

Pros: "Good entertainment system and overall crew"
Cons: "The flight was over booked and got delayed due to issues around seating. The team on the ground in the additional security check knew no English and it was ceothic."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my baggage. And i have all my medicine in it."

Cons: "There were issues with the entertainment system. It had to be restarted by the crew a number of times and lots of people didn't have fully functioning entertainment for the flight."

Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"

Pros: "The service was great and all staff were friendly."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Food, entertainment wery friendly staff"
Cons: "It was to hot in the airplane"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."
Cons: "The air condition of the two planes I used was very bad. There is only one type of food for breakfast. There is no much more to watch besides movies; no sitcoms or decomntries found"

Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "Turkish delights on-board and relatively pleasant crew."
Cons: "Ok overall"

Pros: "Service and food was excellent"
Cons: "Cabin pressure was awful last 30 mins. My ears and teethical were killing me."

Pros: "Departure and arrival were on time. Fairly smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was quite strange. Hand checked some travelers but not all with no explanation. Breakfast was a bit "off""
