There were some Kazak people in front of me, it did not even take two minutes to bring their water. I don't understand, I guess staff is afraid of speaking in English. The aircraft was old and not comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delay and can't feedback the problem"

Cons: "Weather delays, however nothing anyone can do about that"
Pros: "Flight attendants were really warm welcoming and benevolent. Food and drinks are good"
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable."
Cons: "The transfer from international to domestic flights is not well signposted. It's also odd that even though it's the same building, you have to go outside, walk some minutes and then go back inside. At that time of the year it was quite cold outside!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Good food."
Cons: "Flight timing in the middle of the night was horrible. While the seat would have been fine for a day-time flight, it was most uncomfortable to try and sleep in for an overnight flight. What made it worse that the man sitting next to me spilled over into my area."

Cons: "Boeing 757. 1 movie on overhead screen.no power to charge devices"
Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "It is very nice"
Pros: "It was a short flight so not much to say. Crew was attentive to passengers and polite."
Pros: "Hot towel, candy, nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They did not even attempt to text, though they knew the flight would be delayed. When I asked the check in agents about this, they said what can they do? This is a serious lack of taking personal responsibility. What can they do? They work for the company! There are several steps they could take, but they chose to abdicate responsibility instead. Even though I'd been there for several hours and specifically asked for a window seat and been granted a window seat, during boarding, they changed my seat to a middle, which was the icing on the cake. Also, during announcements, the pilot did not even give an apology. This is poor management And I'm disappointed in Air Astana."
Pros: "Empty plane."
Cons: "Ran out of Sauerbraten."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room therefore comfort on the plane. The staff were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The selection of movies seemed on the whole dated."
Pros: "The first leg from Bangkok to Almaty was amazing. A great crew, a nice airplane and overall a nice flight in economy."
Cons: "The second leg was the total opposite. An old plane and a less than ideal flight. That airplane has to be taken out of service or upgraded. Its like we were flying on a plane that hadn't been upgraded since the day they bought it 30 years ago."
Pros: "Good ground handling staff that dealt with my special baggage requests well. Clean new plane. Pre-departure beverages even in economy class."
Cons: "No service offered. No drinks, nothing. Admittedly it was only a 35 minute flight but at least water would have been nice in-flight."
Cons: "No individual screens for movies for an Intl flight. I'd be better to fly Turkish Air instead"
Pros: "Ground crew in Bishkek are consistently excellent."
Pros: "All flights were on time! Thanks for that"
Cons: "Entertaining programs radio music is boring"
Pros: "Welcome crew"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, very small seats and no entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Business Class Lounge in Almaty is a joke,,,and if your flying Air Astana it's even more of a joke as you have to pay for anything you eat or drink. If you have other options avoid Almaty and Air Astana at all cost. This is the first Business Class lounge I've ever seen without Wi Fi ."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive cabin crew, very clean plane!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I just hate leather seats on airplanes"
Pros: "I always choose this flight since it coincides with my train booking upon arrival."

Pros: "I always choose this flight since it coincides with my planned domestic connecting flight."
Cons: "No seat entertainment. Public display or monitor for viewing flops down from above and strategically situated only. You cannot choose an entertainment."
Cons: "The transfer between flights at Astana was an absolute shambles and I nearly missed my connecting flight. None of he Air Astana staff at Astana airport were helpful or tried to help in the transfer process and different staff gave me conflicting instructions. This added a great deal of stress. For this reason, although all other aspects of Air Astana were great, the poor transfer process at Astana really let them down.and would make me think twice before flying with them again."
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was smaller than most other flights and the war phonejack didn't work and the video constantly paused every 30 seconds. Also the 1 8kilo bad allowance in the cabin is a bit unreasonable but I see why they need to because the overhead storage and under the sit storage was less than normal too."
Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."

Cons: "2 hours delayed"
Cons: "I can’t find my luggage"
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Pros: "almost nothing."
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat."
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."
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: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"
Pros: "Everything went well apart from my suitcase been lost on the connecting flights to Ercan."
Cons: "Eight hours waiting for a connecting flight at Istanbul airport."

Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"
Pros: "They keep time and any delay is explained. Otherwise a good airline which I can recommend and will use it anytime."
Cons: "The food is dry like rice and beef is dry and the the pasta is too plain, just pasta and some blended tomatoes is not balanced"
Cons: "Staff at Business Class checkin walking off the desk when we tried to check in. The on-line check failed and that was the only reason to go to the counter, but, alas, it then took an hour to get things sorted because the single staff person just walked off because no one was there to relieve her."
Pros: "Very good customer service and entertainment"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and they gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Pros: "Efficiency and customer service"
Cons: "I didn't get s pre ordered kosher meal on 2 nd leg of my flight"
Pros: "Crew are always available and helpful"
Cons: "Food was dreadful. I thought I had chosen a seat online, but discovered I was in a middle seat. Having 3 seats on the sides makes it very difficult for the window seat occupant to maneuver."
Pros: "The entertainment specially the Turkish airline safety part"
Cons: "for short trip no need for mugabelat before food"
Pros: "comfortable seats space for legs"
Pros: "Everything, it's just straightforward and good, the only thing I don't like it's no direct flights from my local airport, but if I have to go via Istanbul then Turkish airlines it's my preferred carrier."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, the crew was helpful."
Cons: "The entertaintment screen at my seat wasn't able to play videos. The comfort would be excellent if there would be a foot support."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Turkish crew members are usually very friendly."
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: "Staff was rude, was so bad cannot even use word customer service to describe it"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The grew was not very happy almost upset perhaps they were tired the ladies were okay but one of the men was very moody and unpleasant to be around"
Cons: "15 hour stop over in Istanbul with the rudest, prejudiced airport staff ever!!!"
Pros: "Doesn't matter where you're flying. If Turkish Airlines can get you there, even if it means overshooting your destination and backtracking, do it."
Pros: "They answered the phone quickly."
Cons: "I wanted to cancel my flight on Turkish as I was concerned about safety after the terrible attack there at IST. I was told that TK were changing tickets and issuing refunds for a period of 7 days after the attack - and I was scheduled to fly on day 8. They refused to refund or change - all they would say are 'fare fules' - 'fare rules'. When I passenger has a concern over personal safety, and in the aftermath of a large scale lapse in security at their main hub, they should be more understanding and not stand by their arbitrary 7 day rule."
Cons: "The flight tracker was the only thing we could watch on this flight."
Pros: "One of the best flight experiences I have had in a long time."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Clean. Efficient"
Cons: "No non dairy alternatives in food. Chicken was tough and stringy."
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?"
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"
Pros: "Loved this flight, crew was amazing!"
Pros: "quality of plane"
Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit clunky"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"
Pros: "The flight was quick and minimal turbulence. Crew was friendly"
Pros: "Seat and crew were amazing but obviously struggled to be proud and confident of their job, can’t blame them if the company cuts expenses all over."
Cons: "When you fly business class, you expect a different product than economy, because you pay almost double the price. All we got is the same lousy sandwich as in economy, neither are alcoholic or hot beverages available due to ‘shortage of staff’ as the crew announces. A flight far behind LH standards."
Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"
Pros: "The Munich airport presented a startling contrast to heathrow! Both the flight from London and from Munich were very nice. I was so tired that I am sure I missed a lot."
Cons: "On tome flight"
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"
Pros: "Lufthansa hands down is the best airline I have ever flown!"
Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "I’m not sure how I feel about the embarking and disembarking in the “presidential” style. (the use of the stairs outside of the planes, and the shuttle rides)."
Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."
Pros: "Staff were ok, did all they could"
Cons: "Not enough information especially for people with connecting flights"
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Cons: "After arranging seat and checking it over and over for months to be sure it was a right window, for medical reasons, they took it away from me and gave me one which bumped the nerve damage in my arm. They said it was their agent's error but did nothing about it."
Pros: "Only an hour and a half but perfect service and even a nice meal. Because of the delay there were a lot of questions to the crew but they managed to keep travelers calm and happy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that had nothing to with the crew and the service."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Cons: "No bridge in Frankfurt - long taxi and then 15 minute bus ride to the terminal; had to go through security again; mad dash to catch connecting flight (which also had the 15 minute drive to the plane - again, no gate in the terminal! Shambles!"
Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"
Cons: "The flight"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "It was cancelled and I had to wait in line for over one and a half hours to speak with someone to find a solution."
Cons: "Flight delayed because of a late/lost family, then made us late for connecting flight."
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Pros: "I arrived at the airport early and the check in staff offered an earlier flight so I wouldn't miss my connection. Crew was courteous and the sandwich on board was quite good"
Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Pros: "I upgraded to the premium food package for a small price. It was delicious and filling."
Cons: "The quality of the sound from the earphones was not very good so that made the movies less enjoyable."
Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Crew, food, service location of my seat."
Cons: "The entertainment was lacking. I fly a lot so more variety would have been nice in the movie selections."
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"
Pros: "Flight attendants were always there when you needed them and were super nice. The plane was very clean and orderly and the crew just made it a really great flight."
Cons: "I really have no complaints at all. It was a super great flight and I will choose Lufthansa whenever possible when I fly in the future!"
Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("
Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "Paying for wifi"
Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"

Pros: "Crew amazing .. seats not comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed boarding .."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The airline should at least provide a snack. It's 4 hrs of travel."
Cons: "Staff smile more. More room."

Pros: "Evry think"
Pros: "They delivered me my order sanwhich and flight was on time"

Pros: "Unfortunately, it's impossible to find a single positive thing to mention. I'd gladly pay more if needed and never fly with them"
Cons: "I took 4 flights with this airline. Each was at least an hour late in take offs and landings. Very unfriendly staff whether at the check-in or flight attendants. Incredibly uncomfortable seats (compared with same level seats with other airlines). They reminded me with outdoor vegetable and fruit markets where farmers and gypsies yell to sell their products; they charge for everything, offering nothing on a 4 hrs flight, not even water. Not sure if it is a language barrier, but they are very rude and impolite in English. I really wish there was a single good thing to say. Even the pilots are the worst i've seen. Very rough landing every single time"
Pros: "Nothing , It was veri terrible"
Cons: "The boarding pass , they opened my baggage like 3 times and start making chaos in it and ruin many things inside it , plus it always delayed in time"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "No one smiles or tries to help, the Baggage weighing is farcical as people get on in Turkey with three hand luggage’s. Flight was late, no explanation and no apology. Pre flight safety and general announcements are made as fast as possible. Unintelligible"
Cons: "They lost several passengers’ luggage including mine."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Oh wow there’s a long list: -flight was late -no food or drinks were offered -seats were dirty -plane was dirty -staff spoke very limited English -every single food we ordered was “sold out” -credit. At cpayments we’re not accepted -toilets were not clean I could continue but the above suffices."

Pros: "The air conditioning wasn't worked good"
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding."
Cons: "I've never seen so many young children on a plane. There must have been one child for every one adult. Worst of all, their parents didn't even attempt to make them behave themselves. And the crew just let the kids run up and down the aisles and climb on seats. What ever happened to "please remain seated with your seat belts fastened"? Additionally, when I checked in, I asked for a window seat, the agent nodded, and when I got on the plane I found I was stuck in a middle seat. It was the longest two hours of my life."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Checked in only to find out that someone checked allready with my name and he is sitting in my seat. The next bomber?"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and there was enough place in the overhead bins"
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul does not offer WiFi - which is unbelievable for 2017...."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "Connecting flight to Stockholm was cancelled. Had to fly to Copenhagen and perchuse another flight with SAS When complaining to their staff the answer I received was that no other airline would even give me an option to fly to Copenhagen (where I was not headed by the way) in short - paid another 300$, got to Stockholm 3 hours late and will never fly them againb"
Cons: "Flight took off late, no food or entertainment available"
Cons: "I want to make change flight but they where not helpful"
Pros: "it's fine. It gets you from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's almost outrageous that they don't give water."
Cons: "Terrible landing for last 15-20 min, pilot never spoke to reassure passengers whether or not it was okay."
Pros: "I never made this trip due to Pegasus delays - see above"
Cons: "Crew lacks professionalism and courtesy. Distance, between rows, is small, a few cms (5-7) more, will bring great benefit. The transfer, at Instanbul, was crowded, inefficient and noisy; it took too long. The bathrooms were filthy and stinky."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Oh, boy. First, this flight was super late and they wouldn't admit it. I went to the gate at boarding time, and the staff rudely pushed me away, saying I misunderstood the gate number. I double checked, and no, that was indeed the right gate. This lasted until the airport announced the final boarding call for my flight, and people started lining up.Then the staff had to admit that this was the right gate and the plane was just late. We didn't start boarding until way after the announced time (which they didn't bother to update on the screen until it passed. Extraordinarily disorganized. Second, the flight crew was loud and kept the lights turned way up on an overnight flight. Everyone around me was trying to sleep, and they were woken up by the crew yelling "DO YOU WANT COFFEE?" 5 rows away. Even when they finally dimmed the lights 3 hours into the flight, they kept the Tv's on, so the flashing advertisements prevented me from sleeping restfully. Third, you have to pay for coffee and tea. Who does this? They also begin their flight with loud, obnoxious music that jolts everyone awake (see above for this being an overnight flight). Overall, only choose this airline if you're okay with being kept forcibly awake and you don't mind the flight being late. Oh, and you have 2 euros to pay for simple tea."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, flights have a low bar for comfort and food. The seats were fine and I slept through the flight so I cannot comment on the food but everything was clean and the staff was polite. The style of the aircraft is what shocked me. It seemed modern and almost like they hired an interior design person for style not function."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. But hey, that happens with flights"
Cons: "Check in took 1.5h, that is why me and my wife werent seating next to each other, and also we almost missed our flight."
Cons: "Wasn't informed of any delays. Every flight was delayed or rescheduled! Nobody was informed of anything that was happening. I will never fly again with Pegasus"
Pros: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."
