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."

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: "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."
Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."
Cons: "Delayed yet again"
Pros: "Boarding procedure was not organized. Boarding of business class and special needs passengers was not prioritized and were boarded along with economy passengers. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "TV screen very far from the seat and could only interact with it via the remote control."
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!"
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "great company."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."
Pros: "Ground staff (check-in) not the happiest or most welcoming."
Cons: "Other airlines give a warm welcome. Getting to airport, plus the run up to a trip can be stressful. It is also where for me the holiday/trip begins and a smile, or even a 'have a good holiday/trip' said genuinely would really get things off to good start. I felt depressed."
Cons: "I paid for a carry on bag. Then at the airport in Kiev they charged me again (67 Euro) because I also had a small purse. This is a scam. Everyone should avoid flying Ukraine Airlines as long as they have this policy to cheat customers."
Pros: "Loved the food in the business class and the crew was awesome."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, overcrowded. They at least should give priority for business class ticket holders, and have some form of boarding criterial"
Cons: "Seat was changed during boarding"
Cons: "Non losing my baggage"
Cons: "Bag drop at Gatwick airport was dreadful!! Only one desk for the whole flight to check baggage. I was in line for one hour!!!"
Pros: "The baggage reclaim was the fastest I've ever had in all my years of flying."
Cons: "Their English is slurred, garbled, and I could hardly understand any in-flight announcements. Also, there is nothing for free on the flight except one small cup of water ."
Pros: "I liked receiving an extra food as we stuck on plan for extra 2 hours."
Cons: "As we had to wait 50 passengers from another flight we have to stay on plane for extra 2 hours and it’s was terrible experience"
Pros: "Flight was fine. No complaints there."
Cons: "I was slapped with a payment for baggage without knowing about it. I had gotten round trip tickets through kayak and for some reason one trip was allowed baggage but trip back was not. Tried to work it out but somehow kayak booked me for a round trip with bags going out but no bags coming in."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv was delayed and due to the short connection and overbooking we were transferred to direct flight with El Al at no additional cost. Have arrived to Vienna 3 hrs. Earlier."
Cons: "The flight was packed with Jewish people,unfortunately very rude and uncontrollable by the cabin staff,I could see there growing frustration,at telling them to sit down,or stay in your seats! This was relayed by conversations with the other passengers.No consideration for others!which overall ruined the flight"
Pros: "The flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "We fly a lot. But this was our first time flying UIA. Thank goodness it occurred to me to do the online check-in (which, by the way, did not work from my phone; I had to ask the hotel lobby to lend me a computer) because they charge you a fee if you do not arrive with a printed boarding pass. They also weigh your hand luggage and if it is over 7kg (which is nothing!) they force you to pay 70 euro to check it in. We had to pay 140 euro for our 2 check-in bags anyway, because apparently the tickets we bought did not include check-in luggage. Mind you, when I booked our flight nowhere did it indicate I would need to pay for luggage, and when I did the online check-in it also did not state I should or could pay for luggage. Other passengers said that their flight to Lviv included their checked bags, but they got charged for the luggage when flying back out of Lviv. One young man who was already ready to board was told to go back out to check in his hand luggage because it was too heavy (although he had already been allowed through to security with his hand luggage)... and the “scientific” method for showing it was too heavy was the man at the gate simply lifting it and deciding it was past the limit. The lady at the info counter, when we had to pay for our luggage, was extremely rude; in my husband’s words, she was “uniquiley unqualified for a position involving customer service”. So... the ticket itself from Lviv to Kraków might have been affordable, but the airline finds creative ways to make you pay through your nose. We would have actually saved money (and stress) by booking a direct flight with a different airline (or taking the train!). Hopefully UIA will ”get with the times” and become more transparent about their charges, as well as find more qualified customer service representatives. Ukraine is a lovely country and many of the people coming through are seasoned travelers. If the airline continues to make it difficult for flyers, many may choose not to return. This was a short flight, but not even drinks were served."
Pros: "good plane, good value for money"
Cons: "service was slow due to many transactions. would be better if the water were provided in parallel and more quickly than the for-pay service"
Pros: "Great food and service .Very friendly personnel"
Cons: "These guys are the worst. They charge you 10 euros if you don’t do the online check-in (which means you have to stand in two different lines). And they make you weigh your carryon (you’re only allowed 10 kilos). And the aircraft is hot and sweaty. The crew members seemed nice but their food was terrible."
Cons: "Website does not work for checkin on phones"
Cons: "The fact that they only take cash for any flight adjustment and they don t let you know in advance that it s cash only. So you miss your flight and you can t even fly back."
Cons: "Staff is unreasonable. Planes are old and outdated."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful"
Cons: "Assistance was booked but not very helpful"
Cons: "Kayak said there is luggage included however it wasn't included only in one way! In this case the icon should say there is NO luggage and the customer will look into it. In TLV they told me my bag is small enough to take in the plane but then in the connection all of the sudden they said I have to pay 60 euro for it!! Take responsibility for decisions your company took! You are embarrassing yourself and most important- your customers. The behavior of the staff was also ugly, disrespectful, meant to put you under pressure to pay instead of trying to help and understand."
Pros: "The worst flight in my life"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "they charged me 250$ extra 130$ for 1 piece. it was not at all clear at booking that price do not include luggage, they treat yiu as captive when u r coming to the desck charged me 10Euros for boarding pass this company is un honest and should be avoided at any cost both legs of flight where 1 hr delayed."
Pros: "The flight attendants are smoking hot ! Sexy and beautiful. They speak good english"
Cons: "Overall I am disappoint with Ukraine Airlines. I will give you several reasons. First of all I'm a frequent traveller of Ukraine Airlines because I had a business in Ukraine. I have use your Airlines more than 10 times. I fly internationally frequently and I also use several other International Airlines. Compared to the Airlines I would rank Ukraine Airlines at the bottom. 1) I have never been on one Ukraine airlines that has the ability for a passenger to charge a cellphone or any other electronic device in the seating area oh the plane. Ukraine Airlines might be the only International Airline that does not have this. How can you not have this option for passengers in 2018 when you know people are using laptops and cell phones more than ever? This is unacceptable. 2) there are no television options on the headrest for passengers. Again, I do not know of any other International Airline that is not allow each passenger the ability to watch movies in front of their seats. The movie option for Ukraine Airlines is extremely outdated. 3) when taking the international flight from New York to Kiev, the food option is not good. It is only one Hot meal served. To give passengers a cold sandwich as a first option on an 8hr international flight is acceptable. It appears to me that Ukraine Airlines is 10 or 15 years outdated. I travel to Ukraine often and I do as much as I can to avoid your airline. Also whenever I'm talking to passengers in other airports and even passengers boarding Airlines we all talk the same about your airline. Most people are disappointed with your Airlines but have to use it because scheduling etc."
Pros: "Pretty neutral"
Cons: "Pretty neutral - delayed an hour but whatever"
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Cons: "Boarding pass extra charges made the tekits cost more than other's"
Cons: "We could not get boarding passes in line due to internet connection. Had to pay! Couldn’t check one small bag they tried to charge 50 dollars so we had to carry. Flight attendants were incompetent. Moving the items on board all around to make room. Also, snack special was not available so they tried to substitute different sandwich without telling us and then did not know how to calculate refund. Very bad."
Pros: "They charge for everything except water. On the second leg of the flight the attendant skipped serving me."
Cons: "UIA doesnt offer any in flight entertainment on this and other international flights that I have flown with them..."
Cons: "That after waiting so long time for check in and they sent me to buy and pay for a seat & come back again.it’s not because 10 euro. I prefer to pay this with ticket price and not go and come.it’s make u nervous"
Pros: "bag lost in kiev food was cold and saggy flight left and came late after waiting outside in almaty in the freezing cold for a half hour because someone was sick only after i asked for them to bring the busses did they do so"
Pros: "I would prefer to do a regular check-in at the counter."
Cons: "I don't like that UIA checks me in automatically,then makes me to standon general line for baggage drop off and that I don't have any choice of seats at the registration."
Pros: "le didn't boarding,because it was no information about check in stopped 1 hr before departure. and I lost a many and time to get kiev next flyght."
Pros: "Nothing I liked honestly speaking"
Cons: "My family and I were treated badly at check in, refused to weigh my luggage, sent us off to another area to weigh things , then when we came back to the counter, working with different clerk he shouted over everyone head and shouting telling her be careful they have over weight , that was bad behavior and not professional, I asked for the supervisor and I waited for 30 min and no one showed up and I requested his name the Indian man to report him then he disappeared and no one helped me and I almost missed my flight and barely made it, I would never fly on this flight and I don't recommend anyone to use it , flight attendance are not qualified and poorly speak English"
Pros: "The food was good, thanks."
Cons: "No pillows."
Pros: "Only the fact that it got me from point A to point B, and was cheap."
Cons: "About an hour long line to check in, due to their only having a couple of counters open to check in a huge, and completely full, international flight. On both departure and return trips, flights were delayed. On our departure, this led to us not being allowed to go to our connecting flight (even though there was some time remaining and we had only carry-on luggage, but they didn't seem to understand that), and on our return we nearly missed our connecting flight, except for the fact that it, too, was delayed. On one fairly long flight, no refreshments were offered except for purchase, but there was no menu or price list provided, and the service took a very long time. The weight limit for carry-on baggage was different (less) for the return than for the departure. And so on. UIA simply doesn't seem to have its act together. Also, for our own case, our flights took longer than necessary due to UIA having to fly *around* Russia, rather than take a correct route that would go *over* Russia. While I'm sure they can't help this, it is a factor worth considering depending on your route. Overall, I can't recommend UIA. In the future, I will be taking other airlines even if it means spending a significant amount more."
Pros: "I must say that the boarding process was excellent and the landing was perfect; good job captain!"
Cons: "Service was horrible. I asked about a beer and the flight attendant said "international, 4Euros, Ukrainian 2Euro..." He turned his back on me saying "only water free..." I felt like since I was a foreigner, he didn't really want to talk to me. Hard to believe, racism exists here, but it is a reality. I guess that, at least the other flight attendant said, "welcome and goodbye", other than that, worst service ever."
Cons: "Flight attendant should smile and must be educated to say thank you and when giving the change to speak with costumer not to put on table !!"
Pros: "Staff and flight quality"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane and relatively limited space"
Pros: "The plane was probably the cleanest plane I have ever been on, modern and comfortable. The pilot and cabin crew spoke english which was also a big help. Flying on Easter Sunday morning, every passenger received an Easter cake which was a really nice gesture."
Cons: "The ground staff at the check in counter refused to print my boarding pass for my connecting flight in Athens which was a bit stressful. I also queued for 35 mins before being able to check in which was not particularly pleasant."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "No entertainment. Small seats."
Cons: "We couldn't come to our destination because the were late"
Pros: "It just worked out !!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "It's a discount airline, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The person at the check in counter helped put my friends and me together at the emergency exit, which made for a great and comfortable trip."
Cons: "No food offered, no entertainment."
Pros: "2 boxes"
Cons: "I was never able to get on that flight. IT DIDN'T EXIST! It was never booked, the people at the counter of BA didn't allow me to board because there was not such a thing as a "booked flight" I want my money back. Is that going to happen??? I had to buy a completely new ticket for me to travel to my final destination. WOULD I BE REIMBURSED? or is it best to kiss you good bye?"
Cons: "Boarding took so long. Food was average"
Pros: "To be honest I only "liked" that I could check in 2 suitcases free."
Cons: "People pushing to get into the plane,No individual tv's on an international flight,big tv's ONLY showed the map, food=bad."
