Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces.

Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed connection in Istanbul and had to spend a day in Turkey before next available flight"

Cons: "Long delays, poor information, cold food and an entertainment system that wouldn't play films properly."

We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."

Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Cons: "Need More premier economy seats"
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."

Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Cons: "Turkish Air lot my suitcase. I will never travel with them again"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
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. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."

I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "The food was better than on the flight from LA. But wine was bad to say the least. Rest same as in the Flight from LA."
Cons: "The same as above and misguided by crew with regards to connecting flight. We had a bad time catching this connection. Even after disembarking the crew outside sent us on a wild goose chase. Airline representatives should be informed and helpful, which was not the case. Insufficient helping of food. Poor quality of wine and Vodka."
Cons: "boarding was messy at IST"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"

When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"

Cons: "There was no amenities pack given in Premium economy. The food was ok. It would have been nice to have been offered another bread roll. Seat comfort was fine, but I kept getting hit by the separating curtain as the flight attendants went back and forth from economy."
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"
Cons: "I not get to go my flight, I couldn't get reimbursement"

Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in.

Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."

Pros: "Intranet wifi meant I could watch entertainment on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Pros: "The staff..the attentions..food."
Pros: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."

Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."

Cons: "I was treated like I am not supposed to ask for food and they had one choice of meal for me while they had 2 for the rest."

Cons: "AirIndia did not support me at all in this emergency situation of corona. very disappointing."
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "The business seat was not comfortable. They serviced food from midnight until 1:30 am on a night flight. With the lights on, you cannot really sleep. The sleep mask provided can’t cover the light properly. It was just a horrible flight."
Cons: "I didn't like flight from Del to LHR as my seat didn't have the light switch working. So I had to ask stewardess 4 helkp 7 she forgot. asked for 2nd time some body else switched on from cabin. to switch off to sleep had to call back staff. pl repair it."

Pros: "Food was very good"

Pros: "I really enjoyed these seats, my only fault was there is nowhere to put anything but will know next time, the legroom was great, albeit right by the toilets it did not bother me too much, I knew when the toilets were empty and I could just get up and go.There was no real pooling around the toilet area, at least not when I was awake. Flight time 12 hours 35 mins Flying Sydney to Delhi, I found the crew member for our section most willing and helpful, few issues with the fold away screen, not staying upright and not wanting to twist and be flexible to let you out of your seat! As an International passenger I should have had a landing card but the crew member did not give me one as I was travelling onto Mumbai where on the internal/domestic flight they do not issue one so I had to complete one at Immigration...(that's another story!)"
Cons: "I feel the toilets could be serviced on a more regular basis. With 250 plus passengers and I don't know how many toilets maybe 8, they certainly need regular servicing. Towards the end of the journey they were starting to smell and became very untidy with paper being trailed around the cabin on the bottom of peoples shoes. Maybe a two line guide on the door for passengers who do not take notice of the green and red lights for vacant and engaged. I saw many people just standing there waiting outside the toilet for someone to come out before they went in. Other passengers savvy to this just jumped the queue in front of them thinking they may just be stretching their legs."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "For the price I paid for this trip, I think it’s acceptable and I will fly them again in the future. On time flights, polite cabin crew. Don’t expect over the top services . Limited choices in in flight entertainment system. I’m not used to Indian food so can’t comment much. Didn’t quite like it."
