Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."
Pros: "Attractive business class fares. Among the best business class."

Pros: "It was one of the best airlines in all respects. We flew economy and were treated very well. The stagg was lovely and the food plentiful and good. I will definitely fly them again. The website could be a little easier to navigate to check flight status and seat confirmation. They need to work on that. United airlines website would be a good place to start rheir study."

Cons: "The breakfast meal upon arrival to Houston was partially frozen. I guess this must have been a human mistake."
Pros: "A Lousy airline. Also for Americans: They don't issue visas to allow the passenger who lost their flight to go to a hotel. They stated that there was a diplomatic problem between Turkey and the US so they don't issues visas anymore to Americans. STAY AWAY FROM TURKISH AIRLINES!"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There should be more snacks during the long flight. Only one item was available and it was located in the rear of the plane. It was difficult for senior citizens to avail this service."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Nairobi due to a catering issue. Missed connection through Istanbul to Manchester. Placed on AF flight to Paris then Manchester. Paris flight was delayed. Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville. All expenses I can ill afford. Lesson learned...cannot afford to use Kayak anymore...sorry."

Pros: "The movie options and quality of the screens was excellent. That's what got us through the flight."

Cons: "Very good fantastic business class seats awesome legroom And again great service"
Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."
Cons: "Seating in the middle seat and 2 smaller people sat on the aisle and window seat"
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't give food 5 stars though, because compared to my previous experience, quality is less than usual. I always fly on Turkish airlines and I like it overall. Security at Istanbul airport is great. Better than anywhere else."
Cons: "Quality of food is less than the previous experience"
Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"
Pros: "A great crew"
Pros: "I have flown with all big airlines including Lufthansa, BA, Delta, American and others. This flight was by far the best experience I had. They have lovely serving crew so no one actually hesitates to ask or want something. They have helped me and my two toddlers along with 3 other similar families of an incredible amount to make sure they are all comfortable. No wonder that received the best airline of europe award for several years in a row...There was only a 20 minutes delay during take-off and we still arrived home a bit early... Very smooth flight, one that I still cant believe I had with my 2 toddlers. Strongly recommended."
Pros: "Love everything... i was actually surprised... The crew was the bes"
Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Disruptive child in seat in front of me"
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Pros: "I booked a round trip flight from IAD to NUE with stay over in IST. Try to make change flight date IST to NUE. I was told by the Turkish air agent to buy a new on way ticket from IST to NUE and use the origenal ticket from NUE to IAD and I did. The the nightmare begun when I try to get back to back to iAD. I was told my ticket was cancelled and have to buy new ticket. After 7 hrs exosting fight and inconvenience when they found out that I was not easily going to be hustled out $1100+ they finally reissued my tickets. During this time I witnessed how 10-20 customers old and young were being hustled for more money and some crying out of frustration. It was one of the worst experience I've had in my 45+yrs traveling experience."
Cons: "Customer service training. Mgmt must be involved in problem solving rather than sending customers to a phone both some of it that doesn't work to talk to folks that don't know what they're doing nor have the authority to mak decision."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."
Pros: "Crew was brilliant"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Good crew, comfort and timing"
Cons: "I got what I expected"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was delayed because the crew was caught in traffic. Should have a rule in place that all crew are at the airport 2 or 3 hours before the flight is to leave."
Cons: "The flight was good. Landing at the airport expect 2 hours through customs getting into the airport. Since you have to take a bus when you exit the plane."
Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."
Cons: "The food was sub-standard, though it was described accurately as a snack."
Pros: "The bus was one of the most comfortable international flights I have ever been on."

Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"

Pros: "Service leg room and service with a smile"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Pros: "Actual flight, staff, food, beverages."
Cons: "Altho I checked in on line in advance, i was unable to print my boarding pass . Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage. I did so. Wait was not too long. Security was fast by comparison."
Pros: "Height Space, good pilot and some of the food. Good landing and overall pilot skill."
Cons: "For the whole journey I had a small child kicking, knocking, tapping behind me. Kept waking me up also nearly ten hours of whining. I was genuinely uneasy and uncomfortable for the whole trip. I think there should be a designated child with adult area as I really don’t think this is acceptable. It is stressful enough traveling for 30+ hours this really is not welcome."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 1 hour before departure... customer service was appauling"
Pros: "Nothing. Will never travel with airline in the future. Definitely will not recommend."
Cons: "Flights are delayed frequently which resulted in missing connection from Frankfurt to New York. On arrival, passengers are herded like animals from one point to the next with no explanation as to what resulted in the delay or given sufficient supplements for food etc."
Cons: "Too few water servings. Made me sick."
Cons: "Attitude of staff very poor at a request for a drink of water"

Pros: "Everything as expected."
Pros: "The staff was good to me when I became ill on the flight with a migraine."

Pros: "Friendly staff amazing boarding experience"
Cons: "No vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Just a shirt flight, no problems"
Cons: "Just talked to my parents who were traveling and they had no help at FRA. It was very disappointing and something they said they do not want to go thru ever again."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Check in 2x and security 2x Then rushing about"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff Efficiency"
Cons: "Overall a very good service and no complaints but if In House entertainment was provided it would enhance the experience."
Pros: "Online check in worked well through app."
Cons: "If you leave something on the plane, don't expect for it to be handed in. My iPad disappeared on the flight. The woman at the boarding gate in Bham kept shouting at everyone, she was really rude, both flights were late taking off."
Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Pros: "Got off to a late start, should have been an omen."

Cons: "Everything.UEverything.United is suck"
Pros: "On time and straightforward - unlike the previous night when an Air Traffic Control weather delay prevented a connection at Chicago (no fault of Lufthansa). So I stayed over in Arkansas at home as there was no offer of compensation (hotel or $) for the delay."
Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"
Cons: "Was an on time departure. Quick. Uneventful. We did have to board a bus when we landed, which took a long time."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "The cabin was warm and couldn't control temp."
Pros: "Boarding was okay, we still had the rush towards the beginning and the concern is always finding overhead space"
Cons: "Apparently if you're not awake when they ask you your choice, and it comes time to pass out food and you're awake... You don't get any. Really horrible. Food being handed out, you're hungry and not even an offer. They simply skip you."
Cons: "Needed entertainment"
Pros: "Very professional. Excellent service. Very good food (for a flight)."
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "The fine print on the flight pass-- didn't notice that my request for flight change did not go through. Am stuck in the airport!"
Cons: "We couldn't check in for the next flight when we departed from Oslo. Disappointed we had to wait until arriving in Frankfurt. Something about not being partner airlines."

Cons: "Comfort mostly"
Pros: "Very smooth boarding on both flights, a smooth transfer between flights, and comfortable seats (especially nice flexible headrest on longhaul flight). Very friendly and helpful crew."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants,"
Cons: "They lost our bags, twice! We had 4 pieces of luggage that were checked together. They flew out of the same airport we did. They lost 3 out of the 4 bags, but assured me all 3 were on the very next flight. The next flight came in but only 2 more had been put on that flight. Still waiting on 4th..."
Pros: "Leg room was good. I am 6ft 2in"

Pros: "Flight was relatively empty today, therefore boarding was smooth and easy. I had a row to myself.. Smoothest landing ever... just a lucky day"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Cons: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"
Pros: "The wafer bar. Pilot had a good landing in high winds and snow."
Cons: "Nothing to complain."
Pros: "Seats more comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left late. Unboarding took a long time. Didn't hold connecting flight, missed it. Now on 5 hr wait and may miss airport transit."
Pros: "Fast, organized boarding, on time departure. Crew was courteous. Good food for airline food. I have only had positive experiences with this airline."
Cons: "Can’t like it if you missed it!!"
Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "Our luggage did not make it in a 2nd flight. We had to fill out many many many oaoers st Odessa airport It took 1,5 hours & our ride to hotel did not wait for us & left. Some other taxi driver gave ya a ride & charged ys $50 rather than $20 that ya the cost of our reserved ride. When we got to our hotel, we had to pay $20 for the transfer to hotel even though he left. Now we have no toothbrush or any change of clothes & hopefully we will get our luggage tomorrow after 2pm"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time flight. Nice refreshments"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Pros: "I watched three good movies during the flight to London. I enjoyed them."

Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"
Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. Smiling and confident in their jobs. (The complimentary wine didn’t hurt either!)"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. We took off a bit late, but landed on time. Staff was responsive."
Cons: "Mediocre breakfast. Entertainment wasn't great."
Pros: "Leg room, kind staff in the airplane"
Cons: "Staff at service desk -unprofessionalism, never on time. Charged 3 times for infant ticket because of computer errors but lack of human factor explaining why, just completely horrible explanations."
Pros: "I like that flight boarding was quick and in time.it was a short flight My name is Hispary."
Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. Food was good and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "I was generally pleased with the value and qulity received."
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane seemed a bit old as it made weird noises at certain altitudes"
Cons: "Initial flight was late taking off for no reason except they scheduled too many incoming flights. Made my second flight but my bag did not and had to wait over a day for it while missing a day of work."
Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss."
Cons: "the passenegers - too much farting"
Pros: "The crew worked so hard and were always ready to do more for any problem that arose, be it, mothers with babies, the elderly and infirm, the less than gracious occasional passenger, or younger children. The entertaining things on the individual screens also helped make the long periods of sitting more manageable for young and old."
Cons: "I didn't like how the passengers in general, left the cabin of the plane in such a mess! The crew came through several times for refuse, so I couldn't understand. Leaving pillows and blankets should be the only thing to clear out. Maybe a note on the TV screen could say, "a tidy plane helps flights be on time :-)""
Pros: "Comfort seat. Good mouvies"
Cons: "The aircondition was to high. I was almost frozen."
Pros: "The flight was good, the food was good, the crew was excellent"
Cons: "The wheel on my luggage was broken (it was fine the whole trip). I had to throw out my bag after I got it home"
Pros: "The service on board was fantastic. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground at London for what seems like ages."
Cons: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Cons: "My row was bypassed a couple of times for food/beverage service even though we were wide awake and looking expectantly at the flight attendant. Sometimes she asked me if I wanted a drink or something and as I was answering she looked away and moved on. I couldn't believe it. Then after pressing the service button and waiting a long time for her to return, she acted like it was a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Not at all a comfortable experience, but I suppose it served its purpose."
Cons: "Seats in economy class are way too crowded, plane was too warm and air was stale (and had an odd odor). Choices of dinner selections ran out quickly, and serving any type of curry (the only option left) on an 8 hour flight is a very questionable choice.... Staff gave some people the full can of drinks, while others only a half glass. Also, even though there was not much turbulence throughout the flight, the plane was still VERY shaky for the majority of the time in the air. Not very comforting for those who are not frequent flyers. In the future, I plan to stick with British Airlines."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly. The food was delicious and really appreciated the extra rolls!! Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment selection for adults was very good (really liked the documentary section and Asian movie offering). However they need more films or programs for ages 2-10 .... There is a section for family and kids but almost all of the movies are more appropriate for ages 9 and up."
Pros: "Reasonably on time. Food and service were passable."
Cons: "Very old plane, the entertainment system was awful. Wifi did not work at all."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Food & extremely old plane with no electrical outlets no Wi-Fi and the entertainment system was rubbish . The food was terrible. One passenger mentioned that the bathroom was in terrible shape. I actually tidied up the bathroom before I left cause my bathroom was also in terrible shape or getting there. This plane needs to be retired it is so old! United Airlines should be embarrassed! I can't believe this plane is still in circulation at least the inside of it! How about updating it to modern times?"
Pros: "Served a lot of food. Most personnel friendly and helpful. Enjoyed entertainment selections. Plus this flight was $300 cheaper than the others. Convenient times and choice of airports."
Pros: "I liked the service and the polite staff. Timelyness also we liked.I will use united again."
Pros: "The flight was quick, food good, crew friendly. we landet earlier than expected."
Cons: "This was an older plane and even I paid for economy plus, there was no outlet, no on ddemand movies and the seat was not as comfortable as in a newer plane. Very little space in the overhead departments, even for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Everything was fine — but every bit of this flight was managed by United — the aircraft, the crew, the check-in desk — never encountered anything related to Austrian Air the whole time."
Pros: "We liked that the boarding process seemed to have been streamlined and organized from other flights (this was a UNITED flight which we flew through Austrian Airlines). It was efficiently done. We thought the selection of movies to watch were terrific. So glad to have caught up on several I had wanted to see. Considering we had a 3 hour delay, I got to catch up on ALL the movies I wanted to watch!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed just over 3 hours by a mechanical problem with the radar. We taxied to a remote gate while they tried to fix it. Original estimates were an hour, but it ended up being 3 hours. We stayed onboard which was probably best in this case - but having been trapped by United on a flight many years ago from 4 pm until midnight with 3 small children and then told to come back at 7 am the next day - I am very wary of the airline now and actually drive from Washington to Chicago as we could have done that in the time they trapped us! This flight was practically empty however, so unlike many transatlantic flights, we could spread out and were more comfortable than usual. So that was lucky for United otherwise my scores might have been a LOT worse! Also, we hadn't eaten, figuring that we would eat dinner on the flight. So after 3 hours we were a bit peckish! The crew came around with a cookie and water. Really think that might have been a little more especially considering the flight had so few passengers. So we arrived back in DC just about 10 pm and, after clearing customs and getting bags, were home to Arlington about midnight - 5 am our time! Given the conditions and circumstances, the crew did a good job. I would like to think that Austrian Airlines would have some input with United. The outbound daytime flight from Washington to London had been simply terrific with a wonderful crew - new to the route I think. They gave as pointers as to what we were seeing out the window, which we always appreciate. Just as my daughter wondered what we were seeing out the window, the captain would tell us. So in short, the outbound flight was in a different league to the return flight. But that's down to United and not Austrian Airlines. And these things happen and I'm glad we didn't have to change planes or make other plans."
Cons: "I paid for extra leg room to sit in economy plus. My friend who paid the same price as me for our original ticket, but didn't upgrade was put in the same row at no additional cost. The seatting pricing is rigged."
Pros: "Getting off the plane! Never to return!!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for an over seas flight. Cramped and uncomfortable . Had to literally climb over the seat to get out of a seated position."
Cons: "I am charged twice/ one from united and another from Austrian airlines and at this point trying to resolve that. Very disappointing at best. The seat upgrade for $139 was a rip off."
Cons: "My flight had been rescheduled without my knowledge. Therefore, I had to rush to the gate to make the flight."
Pros: "Seats are way more comfortable than other flight companies"
Cons: "Crew could have been more patient"
Pros: "The entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. From check-in to boarding to flight."
Cons: "The crew not sympathique"
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness of flight."
Cons: "Both flights did not have any general vegetarian options in snack or main courses. There was no option online to submit a meal request and as booking last minute travel and in a foreign country, it was not possible to contact Air Portugal via phone. If the flight offers snack and two meal options, at least one should be vegetarian to accommodate this common population of passengers."
Pros: "Nothing! Horrible!"
Cons: "I had small carry on And there were nowhere to put them. The cabin for the carry one were full and my carry on had to be placed somewhere else, and knowing I had personal information in my bag. Very disappointed"
Pros: "The food and crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "My eyes were closed and the crew passed by while serving food but did not wake me up. As a traveller I been woken up while food was served or food was kept on the seat tray."
Cons: "Overall the flight was good but I dont know why the crew was like that, and the flight seats ain't comfortable and were to close to each other. I legs wasnt comfortable"
Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent during the flight."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight because our first flight was delayed. Despite getting to the desk when there were still people queuing he refused to let us board. We are now delayed for 30 hours with no money or clothes. TAP staff were horrible- no sympathy or even an apology. Just awful."
Pros: "In time. Plane half full. Perfect."

Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."

I called TAP (before the flight) and they would not change the flight because I went through a travel site. My $240 ticket was lost, and I had to pay over $900 for a new one. I doubt I will use an internet site again because I will unlikely get a refund and it was impossible to change the ticket. Feel awful!"

Pros: "Easy trip from London"

We called them and they said, "we cancelled your tickets and only have business class seats available for you and your toddler." We said no thank you. If we were going to spend 1k on a return flight, we were going to take British Airways. TAP, never again."
Pros: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."

Cons: "Didn’t get to it"
Pros: "The employee were professional and nice. Every thing went smooth"
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine with the flight"
Cons: "Have never seen this happen elsewhere, but shortly after boarding, the crew announced they had to do a safety check, which required all the passengers to collect their personal items (i.e. everything from the overhead bins) to hold with them in their seats, as the crew 'checked' the bins and aisles. The procedure didn't seem to delay the flight, but just seemed a little pointless and a waste of effort. Thankfully there wasn't anything found or any other cause for alarm, but it just seemed odd."

Pros: "We got where we were going safely"
Cons: "My knees were actually pressed up against my he seat in front of me even though I had my butt all the way back. So, thankfully I had an aisle seat so I just stuck my knee out to the side...this was a partial solution only as the crew came by at least 5 times on a 2 hour flight with the service cart, smacking my knee each time. No complementary snacks or beverages... not even water. Somewhat surprised that they didn't charge to use the lavatory."
Cons: "1 hour queue to check in due to mixed international flights and not enough desks open. No room in overhead lockers, people seemed to have much more than their allowance. Didn't get to buy duty free items on-board as they ran out of time."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Fight was delayed by about an hour. Information screens at DUS airport did not work. Seat backrests were WAY too short, so I couldn't lean back. My back and neck still hurt because of that!"
