Pros: "I prafer Pakistani or Indian food so I can not enjoy the food and Alcohal should not be served being a great Muslim country. And seat gap was less for legs."
Cons: "Had a missed flight due to weather delay. Made multiple calls to customer service. Multiple times the solution suggested was to go to a local Turkish Airlines office. How many companies are asking to visit a office for service in 2018? Issues were not still resolved. Aircraft seats were worn out and dirty on BOS to Ist and Ist to Miami route."

Cons: "Boarding status changed straight from pre boarding to last call. No AC"
Pros: "Service and team"
Pros: "The Lounge at Istanbul airport is fantastic"
Cons: "Seating in Economy class is terrible. For tall persons like me it is a punshment to be squeazed in such a narrow space. Turkish airlines should add more space and comfort with their seating in Economy. Introduce a Premium Economy Class would solve that problem"
Pros: "The food was good and the staff very polite, but service seemed very slow."
Cons: "The seats rows were too close together. I am a short person and do not usually have issues with leg room on flights, but even sitting in an aisle seat, I found it very uncomfortable. In addition, the A/C seemed to get shut off when the lights turned out, so the plane was extremely warm for about 4-5 hours."
Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Pros: "Excellent service by good mood personal and cabine crew. I enjoyed the short flight."
Cons: "Service was terrible, crew was rude. Flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Tel Aviv and my luggage was not here when we arrived. They let us wait two hours for luggage before telling us it wasn't going to make it in. Frustrated and disappointed! Ground security in Turkey was rude and took my sons skate board which we had flown to Israel with and back to turkey, then they told us it couldn't come with us to miami although we flew Turkish both directions with no problem. In the end gate staff went and rescued his skate board from security as he got to the flight crying his little eyes out. Communication was terrible and staff was rude!"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew and quality of food and beverages served"
Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Cons: "Crew was ok"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has an excellent entertainment system"
Cons: "They used to have more legroom"
Pros: "Crew was top notch , food was great, loved the hot towels you get to freshen ourselves with, crew friendly and very patient. Loved that flight wasn't full and the three of us could spread out and be as comfy as possible."
Cons: "Very late 1.5 hours leaving JFK on way to Istanbul causing us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Arriving almost 2.5 later in the evening."
Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."
Pros: "food service and flight attendants were really nice"
Cons: "I travelled in Business Class from Istanbul to Chicago. The service was not at all impressive and the crew were not very helpful. I asked for water and champagne with my dinner. Champagne never arrived, even after I asked for it again. My half-full glass of water was taken away halfway through dinner with no explanation and never replaced. I asked for water five times before I was finally brought a bottle of water over 30 minutes later when they were being passed around to everyone. Meanwhile, the two flight attendants I asked for water walked by several times picking up trash... not sure what was so difficult about bringing me a glass of water."
Cons: "Turkish airlines do not care at all about passengers from other countries (other that western Europe and USA) - my flight was cancelled but the airline reps did not bother to tell 150 plus passengers until the end... passengers got angry and one rep took us to the hotel desk, confusing with boarding passes and passport control on the way - forcing us to waster 3-4 hours; we were provided hotel accomodation at midnight (flight was supposed to take off at 9 pm - maybe they were avoiding to spend on out meals???"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "As usual on Turkish Airlines, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the plane was not working. They woke people up to give us dinner at 1:00 am (Almaty time) and again for breakfast more than 2 hours before the flight ended. Let people sleep!!"
Cons: "The worst customer service ever. Turkish airlines changes 6 hour transit time we purchased to more than 24 hours transit time and they refuse to help us when we try to change the flight to other day. Because of that we are forced to stay in terminal for morethan a day with out any hotel arrangment. I wouldn't recommend their service to any one. So sad"
Pros: "The whole experience was ruined by the missed flights on both sides of the trip. My flight from IST to KHI was missed because my lay-over was only one hour, and my flight from IAD left hour and half late. I had to spend extra 6 hours on IST airport"
Pros: "Comfy plane overall, good and entertainment was good!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything! Extremely disappointed and not planning to fly with Turkish Airline again. I been flying with Lufthansa since April 1993 twice sometime 3 times a year and I don't remember ever being annoyed, disgusted, treated poorly and rudely and disturbed with any of their flights as I was on Turkish Airline! Ms. Meryam was the rudest human being/ female I met so far! Extremely rude , unprofessionally and very unfriendly Ummi G. Gunturk"
Cons: "I didn't like anything! My seat was broken, didn't move , the seat arm was broken , TV screen was broken and the crew didn't have the curtesy to even bother to upgrade me to a better seat. Instead the dumped me to the second to the last seat all the way in the way which the seat didn't work either. I been on the broken seat with my neck braces around my neck on (due to a neck injury) for 11 hours and the crew didn't give a damn about me!!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice though took very long to clear after meal. I love flying with Turkish Airlines on my business trips I guess August is not the best time .."
Cons: "Flight was very full yet boarding was done with bus not a walk trough gate Screaming children and loud parents made the short fligh literally a nightmare. This is not in the airline control unfortunately yet impacted badly on my flight experience."
Pros: "فى رحلة الذهاب فقدنا شنطة وكان الفطور جدا ضعيف لأ يلق بطيران وصلنا مطار اسطنبول تعامل سيئ جدا من الموظفين. هناك مشكلة في الدولة صحيح لاكن تعامل جدا سيء"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats and not alot leg room, the security itself wasnt great ..."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were great, entertainment available at seat back was excellent."
Cons: "By the time they reached my row (37), they had run out of lemonade, chicken dinner, and even customs card. That was poor stocking. The service was mediocre at best. When I asked for beer and a cup of water, the female flight attendant ignored my request and just gave me water. Chicken entree had run out. When I pointed out that I do not eat beef, I was given a half-eaten special-order vegetarian tray: the salad, dessert, bread were all missing. I had to ask again for the rest of the contents of the tray and the male flight attendant was none too happy. So much so that, come breakfast time, he deliberately skipped serving me breakfast - he served the people on both my sides, and just walked away without so much as an explanation. That is rude and obnoxious behavior not becoming of anyone in the service profession."
Pros: "Turkish delight and endless beverage service :)"
Pros: "The comfort level was good. I liked the meal in economy and I was able to watch a new movie."
Cons: "The flight left late from Marseille, further diminishing the 4.5 hours I had to catch a flight on another carrier. The flight circled the destination and was then diverted to the second Istanbul airport, where we refueled and waited for another hour. People from the back of the plane rushed to the front of the plane while we were still taxiing on the runway at Ataturk, all to get to the front of the line. The crew was passive the entire time. Upon exiting we were herded onto busses (thus taking away the supposed advantage of those rushing the front). When finally in the terminal, I had to go through customs, purchasing a visa (for a country I did not want to visit at the time), and reclaim checked bags. I proceeded to the other carrier's counter, to be informed that the gate for my flight onward was closed. As the ticket was "promotional" I lost that ticket and had to purchase another - on Turkish! Also had to spend a night in a Turkish hotel, also on my dime."
Pros: "It got me from point A to point B safely; it was a short flight. The overall price of my flights couldn't be beat."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 45 minutes or so and there were some boarding issues. Honestly, I could care less given the really low ticket price and the fact that the delay worked to my advantage but a lot of passengers were upset."
Pros: "Loved the food and crew--top notch."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "The staff was disorganized The boarding slow and the computer was the workings same as above"
Pros: "The service was great. The flight attendants are professional, accommodating and very helpful. Inflight entertainment is great."
Cons: "The temperature runs high on most Turkish Airlines flights that I have taken, especially the red eye flights. Every time that I have flown from Istanbul to Almaty, the plane is hot and people are sweating. This time I asked for the temperature to be adjusted, and after about 4 times, I finally felt a bit better - but still not comfortable. I don't know if this is a malfunction, or an opportunity to save money?"
Pros: "USB charger!!"

Purchased a Seat by the exit for extra money the Seat was very tight not comfortable at all Some of the crew was real sour no smile no Kind word like a robat Some of the russian passangers has behaved like no man Kind ."
Pros: "I just had a bad experience with the person seating next to me"

Pros: "Aeroflot was a classy airline, I didn't expect it but appreciated it"
Pros: "Cabin staff sometimes curt and unfriendly."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The plane was in good shape but there was no entertainment. Departure gate was changed fairly late and the information given was incomplete."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed and delivered only 3 days after the flight. Moreover, messages sent to the airline seeking information about the missing luggage were never answered"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Cleanness has to be better. Toilets were old and dirty and smelly. Also cleaning crew did not clean the trash before us as I found trash in the pockets of the seat. Overall I could feel that the plane was too old and dirty. Also they can change the food quality. Too poor."
Pros: "Flight is over. Dreading return"
Cons: "Vulgar rude cabin attendants. Careless ground crew baggage arrived broken dirty and scratched Bus to plane stuck behind a plane in the snow. Not safe and led to over an hour delay. Cheap airline."

Pros: "Staff, flight attendants, aircraft and most importantly the flight itself."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was fine for such a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was not well-organized. Specifically, there was no announcement of the boarding starting or continuing. You just had to know when it's supposed to start and show up at the gate. Boarding is general, without any division by rows or groups, which means people in row 6 and in row 20 board at the same time, creating a long line. This slows down the boarding process and causes frustration in less patient people."

Pros: "Clean nice excelente seat"
Cons: "Very difficult airport No information"

Most of JFK phone numbers listed at aeroflot.ru are not working, there was answering machine working on one and I left a message, still waiting for call back (it's Monday now); 4.

After flight from Saratov I discover that my suitcase was badly cracked, so I will have to by a new one."
Pros: "Great food, stuff and free movies"
Pros: "Staff, comfort, food"
Cons: "Crew didn't offer beverages!"
