Pros: "The flight departure was on time"
Cons: "I didnt like this flight at all. I got delaied 2 hours at the turkish airport plus the 7 hours lay over, total 9 hours, the gate travel service didnt give us any reason for the dealy, the customes gathered us in a small area where there is no seats and the bathroom was smelling so bad, we were stsrving and not even water been served to us, i missed my ride to the hotel in Amman, and missed my work breakfast orientation."
Cons: "Seats are hard as a a rock..it was like A cattle car, no ability to check in on line, service at the counter horrible, baggage ridiculous my 30.L duffle definitely qualified for carry on but my tiny backpack (10 L) small as a purse) made the guy say check the duffel...others had huge rally bags plus back pacjs"
Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."

Pros: "Really good food, good movies, overall nice feel."

Pros: "the seats were more roomier than the flight to istanbul."
Cons: "One of the other passengers was being difficult and irritating on the flight."

Pros: "Enhanced security screening is great."
Cons: "Their website reports INCORRECT departure times for their flights!!! BEWARE I travel frequently and Turkish Airlines is posting WRONG information about their flight departures, causing people (like myself) to miss their flights!!!"
Pros: "i like because can interline from qatar airways and baggage through as well. so i do not need to check in again."
Cons: "Worst customer service."
Pros: "Seat space continued to be better than BA. Nice surprise to get an evening meal on the last leg to Rome. I actually was able to sleep a bit on this smaller airplane as well. Crew went out of its way to help people board and load bags overhead. They seemed very attentive, and tried to provide extra drink options even."
Cons: "Boarding process at IST was a challenge. We left from a remote gate, and the agent didn't seem interested in the boarding process. I heard no announcements, maybe because it didn't matter as everyone was crowding the door 15 minutes before boarding began. The agent seemed perturbed, but I've seen it on almost every Italian bound flight. No one wants to wait. It is actually a bit amusing to watch the struggle between boarding policies and a group of people who seem determined to ignore them. The buses were also pretty well packed. More so in Rome than IST. Not much organization in loading at either place. After all the passport control they left us to walk outside to wait for the bus. Maybe you can tell I'm not a fan of remote gates."
Cons: "WHEN i MISSED MY FLIGHT FROM ISTANBUL TO JEDDAH I DID RECEIVE ANY HELP NOR ANY CARE"

Pros: "I already posted my remarks above"
Cons: "Same wrote above"
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew, food and entertainment"
Cons: "Connection time between arrival time from Tel Aviv to Miami was very short. We had to sprint from the transit security area, through the crowded main terminal, to gate 705 to our sole connecting flight to Miami. A bus or other form of transportation should be provided to gates that are very far away. We were the last ones to board. Private security staff at the gate prior to boarding the bus to take us to the plane confiscated my Bluetooth headphones under the assumption that they fell under TSA's prohibited electronic devices (which they do not). When on board the plane, I noticed another passenger with similar headphones which were not confiscated- selective enforcement."

Pros: "Exceptionally nice crew, outstanding amenities, best food I've ever had on an airplane. I especially liked having the option of traditional Turkish fare."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been more organized. I had a business class ticket and could not find the priority boarding line. The first ground crew member I asked was abrupt and sent me to the back of the long line. I caught the attention of a different crew member and he motioned me to the front of the line--it was a little awkward saying "excuse me" to each person that I passed. (I am not used to being a priority passenger!) Once my documents were cleared and my carry-on was inspected at the gate, it was not clear whether to take a seat or to go somewhere else."
Pros: "The flight crew on my side was great!"
Cons: "There was one stewardist not on my row but on another row that I witnessed getting very frustrated and was rude with a few customers. It was uncomfortable to watch her be that way. I'm glad it wasn't me but I feel bad for her and the others."

In flight service was good but seemed to be a bit slow as there was only one flight attendant serving half the economy cabin. They used to do a second drink service on this flight which was really nice before. Food was ok but TK has had better food on my other flights. The meatballs aren't as good as some of their more flavourful suppers."

Pros: "Flight timing and the crew were excellent"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were quite good. Flights arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "Our departure flight (BOS-IST) was changed 6 weeks after our booking, so our 2.5-hour layover became 10 hours. This happened before in my past experience with Turkish Airlines. There were many babies and small kids, so the noise level was high. Not ideal if you want to get some sleep on the flight."
Pros: "They had really friendly staff."
Cons: "The leg space between the chairs was really cramped."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Nothing. I’ll never do business with Delta again. Not even to make use of the $80.00 voucher credit they extended. Delta San Antonio manager Delphine is an awful representative of customer service, and a horrible person!"

Pros: "Pre-Boarding was very good"
Cons: "Meal service and trash pickup was poor. When meals were served, within 15 minutes food tray pickup was rushed making me feel like I had to cram the food down my throat. I did not and there was no further trash pickup for several hours. I initiated the attendant lamp and no crew responded."

Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Excellent leg room. Comfy seat"
Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight.

Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"

Pros: "Amenities, seating, plane was newer and nice"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't seem to want to work.wasn't attentive, seemed annoyed, by the time I could order breakfast in 31st class I only had 1 option left. Why wouldn't there be enough for all choices for all 1st class passengers?"

Cons: "Too short a connection between flights. Missed connection. No priority for those with connecting flights. No customer service to ensure passengers know which gates to go through and if passenger has chance of making flight. No recognition of time it takes to get through customs and security to make connecting flight. Actually any semblance of customer service was lacking for passengers to make connecting flights."
Cons: "Better entertainment selection"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "More support"
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother.

Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as we were waiting for documents required for our entry to the UK - surely these should have been ready in advance? Perhaps a taste of things to come if (when) we sadly leave the EU. Same poor sandwiches."

Pros: "Comfort and space"
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."

Cons: "A bit warm mid flight."
Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well, however both were approved for the cabine. For this reason I had to buy padlocks.

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight from Charlotte to Munich and then toMumbai was excellent. Punctual, Food and the Service was good.the"
Cons: "The Air India did not transferred my luggage when I reached there midnight. The Air India Ticket counter opened at 2:30 AM only then they booked my luggage to Bangalore.

Also, after arrival to Birmingham there was an unnecessary crowd created by releasing people from busses from 2 different flights simultanously."
Cons: "Rubbish boarding staff"
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."

I got to the place I was staying at 01.39am which was very uncomfortable. I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Cons: "The gate printed on my ticket was not the gate the plane departed from. Not only was it not, but there was no announcement or warning this would happen.

Pros: "Hope to make today's flight home! Time will tell."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The crew was not very outgoing at all and the seat was super uncomfortable."
Cons: "I had to run to my flight because United scheduled two flights literally back to back and was very nerve racking"

Cons: "I don’t think I’ve ever been on a United flight that wasn’t delayed for one reason or another."
Cons: "United's flight was delayed five hours going to Nashville and on the return flight was delayed over an hour. I have yet to be on a flight with United that was on time. I've learned my lesson and will NOT fly United again."
Pros: "I liked the flight was a fast one from San Antonio to Denver and that it wasn’t too crowded."
Cons: "I didn’t like all the excessive noise from the plane and kids."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was a smaller plane (4 seats across). Knowing this, they didn't bring enough luggage carts, so they only brought some of the luggage to the baggage claim and didn't tell us this. 5-6 of us waited and waited and finally asked someone who told us that they had to go back to the plane to get the rest of the luggage. Those of us still waiting got to wait another half hour for our luggage. Talk all they want, United just can't seem to get it right. PS: those of us who had to wait were the ones who got to the San Antonio airport the earliest and thus our luggage was on the plane first."

Cons: "En el manejo de mi maleta me rompierón una de las ruedas de la maleta."
Pros: "The space of the plane since I volunteered to be at the emergency door I felt comfortable..."
Cons: "Not giving me my seat number because my ticket was not a standby ticket and I seem to think that the agent thought that I was on standby but I have to go to him several time to make him understand that my ticket had a confirmation number and I did a reserve and I needed a seat number it was not on standby when he checked it he said okay and I also explained to him that I was a military personnel ... The agent should treat us with respect you should have gave me a better information and just throw me away then going back to him several times for the correct solution..."
