Pros: On time, good service, clean aircraft, friendly staff, good quality food.
Cons: Neither Kayak NOR Aegean informed us in advance that the ticket purchase did not include EVEN one piece of checked luggage. Discovered this at the eleventh while checking in online.
Pros: Not much! Boarding was a nightmare, nobody knew which was the gate and actually they never put it up on the depatscreen. I felt like cattle!
Cons: Get organized! Let the passengers know the gate, board by zones instead of a cattle call 45min. before boarding and having to endure the pushing and shoving during this time. Getting in an airplane where people are trying to find a place for their belongings, not finding any and clogging the way.
Cons: I wasnt accomodated for my meal preference. The cabin was old and creaked alot. I was not informed by kayak of absence of luggage allowance
Pros: Crew were very helpful and courteous
Pros: Consistently on time flights, friendly staff, and comfortable planes. Great value for money!
Cons: The boarding Schdule
Pros: Took off on time
Pros: The tickets were relatively inexpensive.
Cons: However, for comparably-priced flights within the United States, we would have been given a snack and two beverage services on a four hour flight. This was international (turkey to spain) and we weren't given anything. We couldn't even get water without paying for it. Definitely one of the worst flights I've ever taken.
Cons: We were really afraid from istanbul to beirut.
Pros: The price. It was cheap this time around.
Cons: The staff isn't exactly friendly and the food is horrible. Do not buy food on the plane. Bottled and canned items are ok to buy, do not trust the rest.
Pros: Purchase value
Cons: Economy seats are a bit tight
Cons: The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic.
Pros: Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids.
Cons: Flight attendants are rude.
Pros: The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections.
Pros: The entertainment option was pretty good
Cons: There's very limited legroom on this plane.
Cons: On my flight, passengers were rude to the extent that a fist fight broke out and cursing amongst everyone occurred.
Pros: Nice and fast plane ride.
Cons: As an international traveler, I'm not aware of international flight times and rules when traveling. Thus, before my flight on the day, I tried to check-in online which was not available. I then checked check in times cut offs and on the website it clearly says in black and white that check in closes 45mins prior to departure. I made it to the Pegasus check in desk 55mins prior to departure, but it was already closed. In a complete frenzy, I ran to the one and only Pegasus agent and she absolutely refused to help me, saying "everyone knows it's one hour before check in". Uhm, no, everyone doesn't;t know, which is why they go and check it out on the website. That caused me not only to miss a flight and lose €120, but I then had to buy another flight for €370!!!!!!!! I now have to fight my way to the top to dispute this case.
Cons: Comfort and food
Cons: This is an international flight and the airline didn't even provide complimentary water or soft drinks
Pros: Very comfortable business class. Amazing food prepared on board. Flight crew was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The business class lounge in Istanbul was amazing as well, 2 stories tall with food, drink and entertainment everywhere. Golf simulator, slot cars etc!!!
Cons: Check in process was more disorganized than most business class .
Pros: Quick boarding , the crew was awesome and very helpful. Great service all around
Cons: The flight was delayed but they couldn't tell us how late it was , but thanks to Kayak knew it was 40 mins delayed.
Pros: Food and staff were good.
Cons: The seats were tight when the person in front leaned all the way back. His or her head was practically in my lap forcing me to lean back, to the annoyance of the person behind me. All was fine after the meal when everyone leaned back.
Pros: The customer service was top notch!
Cons: Could have used a few more air conditioning vents
Cons: Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines.
Pros: Crew were very helpful and courteous
Cons: The food honestly
Cons: Food was very small portion, chicken (2 little slices) with plenty of potatoes. Forgot to give me the tray with the food,didn’t apologize at all.then they told me i need to wait cause they ran out of food trays..
Pros: Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication
Cons: Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins
Pros: This leg of the flight we were pleased with after buying another ticket to Athens.
