Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "In this fairly new plane, the rows of seats are so close together, the leg room is minimal. When the tray is lowered, you feel completely squashed in the seat. The food trays are not picked up quickly after eating."

Pros: "The cabin crew was pretty good. This was the only saving grace in otherwise very poor experience"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and they changed the gate from one end of the terminal (A15) to the other (C1). The waiting area was cramped. This being the home of Singapore Airlines, the way managed this entire thing was pathetic. Boarding announcements were also confusing."
Pros: "Everything food was better selection and allowed me to taste bali food before arriving. The seats were comfortable on the last plane Thank god"
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."
Cons: "Very tight space"
Pros: "loved d bnew 787 dreamliner planes. loved d medium haul biz class seats."
Cons: "everything is excellent frm d check in to d lounge to the plane , crew service , arrivals and lastly baggage handling ."

Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "Ontime, airline stewards were excellent and tv entertainment very good"
Pros: "everything are okey"
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "boarding hall was very small, food was below average for Qatar Airways"
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Cons: "Food could have been better. Dessert was disappointing, more choice could have been good."
Pros: "Friendly staff not delayed excellent safe travel"
Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."
Pros: "Mi única incomodidad es que el vuelo iba repleto y fue imposible dormir en ese mínimo espacio de un asiento. Pero eso no es culpa de ellos, supongo..."

Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Pros: "All the service."
Cons: "We didn’t get tea or coffee :("

I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"
Pros: "I love Emirates airlines and I only registered once for diabedics food I always get it ,the service always consistent but could be better ,aiming for excellence"

Pros: "I really recommend this airline. Is worth every single dollar that you pay. Everything is exceptional, the service magnificent, the food is good but the beverage choices are great quality. We really love everything about to travel in Emirates. We are considering to use this airline every time that our destination works."
Cons: "Since they pick up at your house until we landing you feel VIP"
Pros: "Service is generally ok. Polite and ontime flight (infact ahead of schedule."

Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Very courteous and attentive And always with a smile! A great way to travel, it's hard to go back to other airlines after having experienced Emirates!"

I would have ordered that in a restaurant actually. The flight was long but not the seat not uncomfortable. Would try them again."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Emirates and it will not be our last. The staff, service and experience has been very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude on the Washington to Dubai flight"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."
Pros: "I felt that the crew kind of forgot about us; there were lots of trolleys going by with drinks but each presumed that we had been served. I also felt that the crew in this section weren't friendly. I know it was an extremely busy flight but there wasn't much eye contact with the some of the crew, I felt that the stewards (men) were the least friendly."
Cons: "The food was bland and boring but i do like having real knives and forks. The white wine choice wasnt good. The crew didn't seem that familiar with the types on offer, ie savignon blanc, chardonnay etc. They just handed you the wine and hoped it would be ok. I felt for such a long flight the crew could have announced that if anyone would like extra snax or drinks then feel free to call a member of the crew or even go to the kitchen and ask. Wifi was offered on the flight but it wasn't explained how to use it so I didn't have this facility as I couldn't connect! Once we asked it was explained but I still wasn't able to connect. Would be helpful if this could be explained / announced to the passengers."
Pros: "On time Excellent environment"
Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"
Pros: "Efficiency and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and the seats were not cleaned properly as well as well as the safety instruction booklets were dirty."
Pros: "Just the check in"
Cons: "was travelling with a 1 yr old. And it was really difficult. She was a bit sick. At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."
Pros: "Everything rom booking to boarding to reaching the destination."
Pros: "The ground and on-board staff was courteous and efficient. The specious seating and clean men's room were added bonus."
Cons: "Coffee was ok, but could be better."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "I found the crowded squashed seating very uncomfortable, , the 380 from Dubai to UK was wonderful, the relaxed atmosphere was great, more leg room, and the staff were extremely pleasant, not sure I want to fly in a 777 again terribly claustrophobic ."
Pros: "Warm hospitality and excellent service during connecting flights."
Cons: "The flight was little crowded but over all it was OK the food service was late and meal was delivered one hour late"

Cons: "food quality and entertainment system choices are poor - flight attendants constantly on the pa for meaningless messages that given in languages"

Cons: "flight delayed as usual"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"

Cons: "90 minutes delayed"
Cons: "Delayed without notice."
Pros: "Service and plane"
Pros: "SMS Informing new schedule of the flight"
Cons: "Please change the food"
Pros: "The upgraded seat to business class."
Cons: "Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "Somewhat disorganized bec. People lined up even if swat numbers have not been called."
Cons: "People trying to push their way in the line. Color coding of tockets associated with colored line coding may improve situation."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Plane from manila to hongkong left late and was transferred to a different flight for hongkong to Auckland .Seats not even together. Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."

Pros: "Cathay is usually a solid airline to fly with. It’s comfortable even in economy and the staff is pleasant and usually efficient."
Cons: "The delayed boarding process and the bottleneck once people were boarding didn’t allow for the flight to depart on time."
Pros: "Had a nice meal, 2 hours 20 min flight. very nice"
Pros: "Very efficient service and prompt arrivals unlike United Airlines.aircraft was modern and equipment was generally well maintained."
Cons: "What other snack options available other than Ramen Noodles. Maybe a low carb option is needed. There are some noodles made from soy products and these will be low carbohydrate. Seats in economy are ok for short people. All airlines should designate an infant seating area close to toilets. This way all infants will be restricted to these seats and the noise pollution in the aircraft is restricted to a small section of the ship.these seats can be specially configured to either seat a no rmal adult or a fast attachments for a baby carrier."

Pros: "Flying beats driving"
Pros: "Everything! Very organized!"
Pros: "The service, the plane, friendly staff all throughout"
Cons: "The particular flight we took lands in LAX at 1420 hrs,, height of arrivals. Immigration took us an 2 hours to clear. Perhaps CX can adjust their arrival time by an hour or so to avoid the peak arrival time of many flights."
Cons: "I was seated at the last seats and by the time it was my turn to choose from the menu, there was none left but just one option for me. Hope Cathay pacific will add extra food selections to accommodate passengers in the last seats."
Pros: "Crew is polite and always willing to serve. Cathay always boards quickly and is always on schedule."
Cons: "I just don't care much for airline food .....I'm 6-4 so I'm never comfortable on long flights. There needs to be more popular movie selections."

Pros: "I had only 70 minutes transfer time and had to spend almost all of that time standing in line to go through security after just arriving from another flight!! I ran to the gate and was the last person through before it closed. I asked about my two bags and was told they were accounted for. Hardly believing it but glad to at least have made it I boarded. When I arrived in Zurich, sure enough my bags arrived too! Was very pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "Though no fault of Turkish Airlines, having to go through security after just getting off one flight was stressful even if it might have been necessary. Almost missed my flight. The security area is not properly designed for accomodating many people at one time and the officials (actually two cleaning personnel) who did not speak anything but Turkish were manning the entrance. Even when I showed them my boarding pass they just rudely shooed me away!"
Cons: "Transfer desk in Istanbul is terrible. Poor customer service. It took 6 hours to get transferred from the airport to the hotel."
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "The flight was actually run by turkish airlines, not philippine air as stated in my confirmation email, so we were sent to the wrong terminal. Nothing in the email said which terminal the flight would depart from or that it was actually turkish airlines. Very irresponsible and communication for customers should be much clearer. Luckily we were very early for the flight or it could have caused a serious problem."
Cons: "Sloppy cabin crew at the time of embarkation. Bad entertainment system (horrible touch screen, earphones with loose contact), made a 7 hours trip an unforgettable experience. Food quality was marginal. A drastic contrast with the previous flight of the same airline company (but from Amsterdam to Istanbul), which was very good."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I didn’t eat or used entertainment so no opinion on that"
Pros: "Great crew and food"
Cons: "Seat comfort/space"

Pros: "Friendly and at tentative staff. Being timely."
Cons: "That there was nowhere at the Berlin airport that we were told to drop luggage at B25....all we saw was to board at A4 which is where we sat until it was time to board. Then they guy said I could not carry on my bag, I had done so coming to Berlin from SFO, so made no sense to me. So we had to dash to B 25 and then back to A4. The other thing, having an extremely painful back, there was nowhere for me to sit during the time of going through security etc. All caused stress and enormous pain."
Pros: "The food was delicious. I like how whenever there was turbulence, it was announced and we were instructed to put on our seat belts."
Cons: "On my ticket, it said Philippine Airlines and there was no terminal mentioned. It's a good thing I didn't go to the Philippine Airlines terminal, which is in NAIA 2. I went to NAIA 1 because I checked the airport website beforehand. Once I was in the airport, people weren't sure if the flight mentioned in my ticket was the Turkish Airline flight because it said Philippine Airlines on my ticket. I also couldn't do an online check-in."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely, I really like the fact that they were friendly and made me feel safe!"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive in Atlanta and when I called to inquire about it , the lady I spoke to didn't have the info. She seemed ignored when I told her they said it was supposed to be here earlier."
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great. The crew were very courteous."
Cons: "It was so hot, nearly unbearable. Not sure why, maybe a one time thing, but definitely very irritating. The food was mediocre at best. As well, the tray of food kept sliding off the retractable table. Seats were pretty cramped."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable, staff were professional"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour"
Pros: "Was surprised to get a full meal on such a short flight. Very good food."
Cons: "Pretty average flying experience. The plane looked older, but that's nothing unusual"

Pros: "The attention from the crew and services"
Cons: "One of my lougage was left behind , I got after a week of stressing from one state to the other with lot of stress and unplanned expenditure I was not really sure whether it was their fault or air canada who charged me $225 for a little box mearnt to b a hand lougage. .. I was really pissed but on all the Turkish airline gave their best but the connecting flight air Canada has the worst services ever.... no food or drink was offered all through to Canada and their workers lack customer service"
Cons: "Seating in the middle seat and 2 smaller people sat on the aisle and window seat"
Cons: "I lost my connection flight because of TA, they lost my luggage + they almost lost my passport... (it goes much deeper but I don't wanna dig in it)"
Cons: "The delay, the service, the fact that my bag was only delivered to me two days after I landed, and after receiving the bag I discovered that it had been opened and things were missing."
Pros: "After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance! Wtf! We had to board next plane the next day, 24hours latet! One day of our vacation lost. Going back was no better since the plane from Manila had slight delay and we missed our connecting flight to Ljubljana for just few minutes. Disappointment again! We got home 15 hours later than we should have. Don't think we will fly with Turkish airlines ever again."

Pros: "Turkish staff places the comfort and convenience of their passengers high on their priorities. Crew is friendly and efficient, very helpful. I preferred it over my Emirates experience"
Pros: "Spacious, coffee actually tasted like coffee and not water like in other airlines. Everyone was very friendly"
Cons: "I brought a small suitcase and they told me I couldn't take it on the plane... when I got on the plane there was more than enough space. Everything was good afterwards. I was just hoping to not having my suitcase checked in so that I wouldn't run risk of losing it. I got my luggage from the pickup area with no problems!☺"
Pros: "Friendly comfortable service."
Cons: "Boarding could be a bit more orderly."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and service was great. They have entertainment options, and working plugs so I could charge my laptop (I often end up with one that doesn't work on other airlines). Would definitely fly Turkish again."

Pros: "I find the airline crew nice and accomodating. The food was fairly good compared to other airlines."

Cons: "No dicaff coffee"
Pros: "on time performance for flight"
Cons: "Cabin crew not very responsive on requests"
Pros: "I read a lot of mixed reviews prior to my long trip from LAX to Stuttgart through IST leaving me skeptical as to whether I made the right choice. I was pleasantly surprised! The flights departed on time. The crew was so friendly and accommodating on both flights. The food was better than most airlines and the movies offered kept me entertained for hours!"
Cons: "The boarding process in LAX was a little confusing and unlike any other airline. It made me think that it might be a bad start but that quickly changed once I got onboard."
Pros: "This rating is for a one hour flight from Istanbul to Ankara. Even so, Turkish Air provided a meal, not just a beverage. Seats were typical coach size, so a bit crowded but not bad. Crew were pleasant."
