Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew"
Cons: "Keep going same detection"
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

This, in turn, caused a domino effect for the remainder of my flights and travel plans. I had to PURCHASE brand new tickets and go through a refunding debacle, not through Kayak but another third party whom actually held the tickets. FIASCO is the word!

Pros: "the flight and service were good"
Cons: "after the ooup d'tout there was a period of chaos and i had to stand in line for 11.5 hours straight to get a new flight boarding pass.l They could have maybe come up with a different system for this considering the 2 or 3,000 people who had their flights canceled. that was incredibly unpleasant...herded in like cattle for 12 hours with i don't know how many thousands of people trying to get a flight out. It was like being in a refuge camp."
Cons: "We had two separate tickets: Istanbul-Odessa-Istanbul and Brunei-Singapore-Istanbul-Singapore-Brunei. Turkish Airlines refused to check our luggage to final destination, so we had to go out in Istanbul, take our luggage and do check in for SIA flight to Singapore.

Pros: "Comfortable cabin temperature, food was great."
Cons: "Not sure whether it was because my flight was short haul, but the plane didn't have in-seat entertainment system (i.e. TV screen for movie watching). The first half of my journey was delayed by 1.5 hours, which meant that I had to rush from the gate I landed in (after the lengthy airport bus ride from the plane to the gate) to my departure gate for my connecting flight, which was already on final call. I found out after my journey that TK is apparently notorious for its flight delays."
Pros: "Food Entertainment"
Cons: "Small seats No aircon!! Boiling"
Pros: "One price no extras, good service"
Cons: "The bloke sitting next to me."
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"

Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"

Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "seats and food"
Pros: "Boarding was fine and crew was trying to facilitate and speed up the procedure."
Cons: "Food was gross , extremely uncomfortable seats, asked for blanket and airhostess said that’s it’s only for kids, unprofessional cabin crew, speaking too loud and candid with each other, they need to teach their cabin crew how to speak gentle with the passengers."
Cons: "Any other Airline first of all one hour late departure the airplane was way too hot ventilation did not work water leaking from the roof during the flight the food was worst I ever experienced on any Airline and overall will never ever fly that airline or recomend to anybody"
Pros: "All fine"
Pros: "Was a short flight and was on time"
Cons: "The Airline was cheep to offer some soft drinks or coffee for the price we paid"
Pros: "Nothing! It was terrible"
Cons: "Service. FOOD IT WAS SO DIRTY! FLY ATTENDANTS DIDN'T DO ANYTHING ! FOR 10 HOURS OF FLIGHT THEY DID NOT OFFER EVEN WATER You have to look FOR them They're was sitting and reading books Never ever again I will fly by this airline I forgot TO mention about extra money for seats and check in"
Pros: "We waited in line and on the aircraft after boarding for an hour because we were waiting for flight documentation or something??? This should not happen, everyone knew when the flight was leaving and the airline should have all of this taken care of ahead of time."
Cons: "Is not comfortable plane also old .I never had again Ukrainem airlenes"
Cons: "All baggage cost 60 E at the airport. No food at all"
Cons: "Airplane seemed outdated, with no individual televisions, and some strange movie selections, which I could not see over the seat/hair in front of me. The flight was very long, so individual entertainment would have made the time pass a little more quickly. The main meal entree was okay, but the bun and brownie was stale. The snack was inedible, despite being quite hungry (stale bun with very little chicken, no seasoning or lettuce or mayo, very dry). Did not see the crew very much after the initial meal was served, but that was okay as I did not require assistance."
Pros: "Planes cleanliness, professional flight attendants"
Cons: "No jetway, crowded buses to and from terminal, no A/C on the bus Airline did not send a check-in email, forced us to pay for check-in and language."
Pros: "Ukrainian International Airline charged me 475 UAH for boarding pass. No communication, no warning. Very unhappy with Ukrainian International Airline for doing deservice to their customers"
Cons: "Delayed, caused me to miss my connection flight. Had to stay in the airport for hours. They told me I had to wait 2 days for the next plane, so I paid for bus to drive 6 hours"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "I went to desk for check in and they told me l have to pay 15 euro because that l didn’t check in on line before l get to the airport. They wouldn’t check and give me boarding pass till l paid 15 euro. Horrible airline. After that they wanted to charge us for food and drinks on a international flight. Never again !!!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Computer wouldn't let me check in online so I had the pleasure to pay them for the inconvenience I caused them for printing"
Cons: "Seats, food, drink option( I had to pay for a coke), entertainment system all these were terrible. Plus we're delayed 7 hours on top of 3 hours layover it was just a bad airline company"
Pros: "The UIA crews were very kind and attentive, responding to passengers in a matter of time :-)"
Cons: "Nor meals niether snacks of any kind, it was understandable due to extra expenses and economical issues the Airline faces. But I am sinserely appreciated UIA, its kind crews as well as Airport Boryspil Airport. Wish them all the best and success! I hope see you all on board soon :-)"
Pros: "Crew friendly I like Ukraine Airlines"
Cons: "Nothing compared to most Airlines I know"
Cons: "No ice for drinks"
Cons: "I don't like that I have to print my boarding pass from a spicial machine, all over the world boarding pass may be scanned from the phone, it saves my time if I don't need to look for these machines in the airport and not to try find a way how to manage it, operating of these machines is not perfect as well"

Pros: "Efficient and quick boarding ,great service!!!"

Cons: "Very hot and stuffy Crazy cramped seats"
Cons: "Paid $20 for checking bag. Bag arrived Kiev opened and in a plastic bag. I don't carry any valuables in checked bags. So, I doubt anything is missing."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. This plane was most likely the same plane the Wright brothers flew upon their first flight. I am 5'4" and 104 pounds and I had a hard time fitting in the seats. Most domestic flight planes that I've flown are MUCH better than this; no TV, no legroom, and you had to buy drinks. The food looked like diarrhea and my grapes had mold on them. Also, the flight attendants were so rude to guests. I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "They dont even have a plug that we can charge our phones .Also they dont have a tv .It was a long trip so i must sleep because there was no other option."
Pros: "Pretty efficient boarding process (even in Odessa of all places). Price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Food options were pretty much non-existent."
Pros: "They compensated our wait with a sandwich and a drink."
Cons: "We boarded the plane to find out there were some technical problems. We then deplaned and waited several hours for a new plane. Little information was given to the passengers in languages other than Ukrainian. Re-boarding was not announced, it just happened. Seats were very uncomfortable and too close together."
Pros: "Everything was OK. Check in was smooth and except for the absence of jetways, it was OK."
Pros: "In business class there was excellent choice of food and beverages. Excellent meal presentation. Flight attendants were nice, very attentive and thoughtful."
Cons: "I bought business class ticket. Instead of business class seats on this flight they have regular economy seats without foot rest and minimal recline. In 3 and 3 configuration they do put anyone in the middle seat. No individual TV in business class. No access to business lounge in Astana because UIA does not have contact."
Pros: "The crew members are always nice and helpful (on every flight). Very professional. The flight from Kiev to Frankfurt was much better than the Astana-Kiev flight- more space, and clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Temperature- it was too hot on the plane."
Cons: "I had 1 bag 158 cm, I could check in with my flight frim tel aviv to Odessa.. I was forced to pay exra luggage for odessa to Kiev.. Although I checked before that I have this. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The second flight (operated by both Ukraine and Turkish was good."
Cons: "nothing really."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were one of the best I've ever seen."
Cons: "The ground staff in Kiev, they refused to help us with an issue. They were very rood, they treated us in a bad way. They aircraft was very old as well."
Pros: "Went well, landed. I wish there was kiosks to upgrade seating"
Cons: "I wish there were kiosks to upgrade your seat like klm or air France"
Pros: "Service staff was friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Expensive food with nothing for free included, no entertainment counsel"
Pros: "Hospitality of crew was on high level and with multy religions flying that flight they was doing there best"

Pros: "crew friendly and boarded us on time."
Cons: "When I got to the Odessa airport, they tried to charge me for my bags even though they were free under my ticket. I had to go see a manager to keep from paying over $100 extra."
Cons: "I don't have food in my flight from tel Aviv-Yafo to oddesa. And I have business class tickets."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Cramped seating, old seats with no amenities like personal viewing screen and USB charging. Dirty toilets and a general rundown appearance. Unless they make better pricing and appearance I will use another airline."
Cons: "I arrived on a Saturday and still have not yet received my luggage (it is 5 days later). And to top it off, the staff has been extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. I have not been updated as to the location of my bags and have been forced to repeatedly call for the status. Today I have called over 30 times and they have yet to answer the phone. Horrendous customer service. If you can afford it, do not fly Ukrainian Intl Air."
Pros: "Air crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Airline arbitrarily cancelled my return flight reservation, had to repurchase a seat at the airport. Steve"
Cons: "No comment overall good"
Cons: "Not related to the flight but many Airport taxi drivers are scammers. Especially the ones that approach you in the terminal."
Pros: "Plane left on time."
Cons: "It was raining the morning I left Odesa for Kyiv, and there was no protection for the baggage that was checked in. I opened my suitcase later to find wet clothes. There are vendors at the airport who "wrap" bags in plastic, and now I understand why! Also there are no escalators or lifts at the Odesa airport, so be prepared to carry your bags up the stairs, onto buses, up more stairs, etc."
Pros: "Comfortable seating Helpful crew"
Cons: "although it was a 3-hour flight, no meal or refreshments were offered!"
Pros: "The flights where on time, and there were not issues between transfers. They provided 2 meals on out 9+ hour flight that were unexpected as everything I read indicated that there would be no on flight meals provided, so that was nice. There was always one little thing in the meal that was a bit weird, but overall the meals were rather good. And once they put on the movies, they kept them coming, which really helped the time pass on such a long flight."
Cons: "It might just be a cultural thing, but the crew was less than friendly. They didn't appear to enjoy their job at all and rearly smiled, which I found odd as I took a total of 4 flights and only the male attendants on one flight smiled.... but after seeing the typical cliental they have to deal with I guess I can understand their dislike! (If I had to deal with people allowing their children to run around like animals for 10 hours with not a word against their actions I might be a bit pissed as well!) And with all airline, they shrink the seats to cram as many people on the plane as possible, so the seats were not altogether that comfortable, but again, that's all airlines. Other wise the only technical issue that I wish should have been disclosed is in Venice there is no Counter for Ukraine Air, they use another airline as their counter support so it was a bit confusing and frustrating when they where unable to print both tickets! Had to get in separate line in Kiev to get second boarding pass."
Pros: "Even though I only speak English I was able to find my way around."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and one even helped me find my way in the Kiev airport."
Cons: "The seats were very small and cramped. No pillows were provided for an overnight flight. Only blankets were given, so I had to roll it up and try to use it as a pillow. And my neck was very sore by the end of the flight. Surprisingly, for such a long trip, there were no personal screens, but three larger ones at the front of the cabin. Also, the flight was delayed because the crew was kate to board."
