Pros: "Movies selection is great. Seating space is comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process could’ve been smoother"
Cons: "Nothing comment."
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "Seats and leg room not as comfortable as older plane. The entertainment system was confusing to use ( again older model) hence not as user friendly."
Cons: "Flat bed in business class was disappointing. No way anyone taller than 6’ could stretch out. Overall, it was an inferior experience to business class on Cathay Pacific, which sets the standard IMO."
Pros: "I like all"
Cons: "The layover in Singapore was a nightmare with insufficient hotel accommodation, nothing but Asian food and overly officious security staff."
Pros: "I reallyiked th service from the crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the silk air mainly on my itinerary. It was an old flight with cloth on the back of the flights a bit torn. No entertainment in flight for silk air. That was a bad flight."
Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable bed."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"
Cons: "The plane was freezing - absolutely freezing. Too cold. There were not enough fluids given out. Given we could not even take water brought in the airport into the plane there needed to be regular distributions of fluids on the flight as there was on the flight from London toy Singapore. It is a long flight and being dehydrated on a plane is not a good thing."
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "Great service and comfort."
Cons: "Food was bland and breakfast availability was a joke. On any flight, passengers do not want spicy or evening meals, and having a limited amount number of breakfasts available was not amusing. The crew had done 5 rows and we were 6 row from kitchen and they had run out ."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "I am disabled traveling with my 96-year-old father. the Singapore Air crew helped us beyond all expectations on our 3 flights: JFK-FRA, FRA-SIN & SIN-DEN. most especially in Germany!"

Pros: "Flight is comfortable, food is nice. Most importantly, the flight was on time."

Pros: "The staff are so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend travelling with the airline. The A380 is a great way to travel with more space in economy. I booked seats on the upper deck where there is a smaller economy cabin. Makes you feel a bit more civilised up the top!"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and good service."
Cons: "Crew could have asked the passengers whether they need snacks in between."
Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours. But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."

Cons: "Video screens were quite small and there were no USB charging."
Pros: "Great Atmosphere, people and delicious food. It's a pleasant flight"

Pros: "Great service & very comfortable lie flat business class seat for this red eye flight."

Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."

Pros: "on this trip, nothing."
Cons: "We had to walk from the one side of the airport to another, security check AGAIN (this was a transfer flight, why another check?), then we had to walk ALL the way back to where we just came from, as the boarding gate was close to where we got off. We wanted to go to the loo, but they said we are late. But we sat for another hour behind the gate and waited for the plane. At 01h00 in the morning after 12h of travel, not the best experience - and something that could be avoided."

Pros: "A380s are good aircraft. Emirates entertainment is second to none ."
Cons: "I'm the first leg 777 aircraft sat towards the back and my window seat was smaller than most seats. I had 1 hour 25 minutes connection in Dubai . But it was a VERY. Long walk from C3 to B14 . By the time for of the plane and reached my connecting gate t8gey were already boarding . Dubai is too big"
Pros: "Comfort. Service. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Hassle-free."
Cons: "Very small plastic cups of water. On-board on call crew service was slow."
Pros: "Breakfast portions were too small, and choices were not great. Boarding procedures were a little chaotic due to small space, and ground staff was not very polite when ordering passengers to board."
Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck.

The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "What I like is the food served, the entertainment, and the toilet."

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "To be honest I liked everything with this flight"
Cons: "I didn't get upgraded to business or first class ;) Maybe next time though"
Pros: "Good selection of movies and special menu for the festive season."

Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."
Pros: "Flight was quite empty and boarding was swift and easy."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "It took Emirates a while to let passengers out. 1 hr layover is just barely in enough, expect to run or fast walk to connecting flights. Not organize when boarding aircraft."
Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
Cons: "Bad seat"
Pros: "In flight meals were quite good. In fact, I would order the smoked chicken salad if I were in a restaurant. Service by cabin crew was excellent as well. Courteous, friendly and knowledgeable$o."
Cons: "In flight entertainment could have more recent movies."
Cons: "Seat a little uncomfortable even with mattress. Food not great."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Insufficient vegan option"
Pros: "food was ok service was excellent fiji airways good Emirates nice girls and good service"
Cons: "we did not like the long wait at Dubai 9 hours in airport is very painful i think that 9 hours wait took most of our energies ."
Pros: "The plane were newer. Larger monitor."
Cons: "THe Entertainment system did not work. which meant no tv, info or seat adjustment. this was in First Class. horrible"
Cons: "The touchscreens on the 777s were a bit unresponsive."
Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Cons: "Very bad change process, through vyaname It was impossible to change the flight although it was 5 days earlier And wr missed the flight"
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Smallest leg room ever"
Pros: "Staff Seats Food Cleanliness Good destinations"
Cons: "Boarding process is retarded. They do way too much, too many steps, too many checkpoints, stairs, hallways, people checking tix. Too much tea and not bringing the customer what they've asked for."
Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed ~10 minutes boarding and I would have appreciated announcements to update the passengers with what was going on / the status of the flight."
Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."
Cons: "The crew was very impolite."
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."
Cons: "Baggage took almost 2 hours to get out at return destination"
Cons: "My bag was lost and I was one of the many. Logistics at Heathrow were poorly executed to help people. It seems like they knew of the problem beforehand and didn't inform people effectively. I waited longer than necessary until I overheard that a lot of luggage didn't make it. I felt if they knew of the problem they should have gotten more people to help passengers and update them."
Cons: "There was a delay"
Cons: "Door could not be opened st LHR for about 20 minutes longer than usual"
Pros: "The media system was great. I enjoyed the food and the crew was very nice."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and attentive. Best in flight service I have received in a long time."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "No entertainment, un friendly crew, terrible food"
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew Big a330 plane with great business class"
Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."
Cons: "The seat bottom was very uncomfortable and made my bum sore the rest of the day."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of food and snacks available. Good wine."
Cons: "Delayed flight, almost missed connection, told on first flight had to check carry-on then they lost our luggage on the connection, cramped seats, but i did pay for the cheapest seats"
Pros: "Crew ignored my existence just because I sat on the window seat, plus I'm an asian, so I'm not sure which of the reason makes her to ignore me for serving my food. Luckily the guy passenger that sit beside me helped me to inform and made sure that she served the food to me."
Cons: "YEA, PLEASE TRAIN YOUR STAFF TO TREAT ALL PASSENGERS EQUALLY, NOT ONLY JUST TO CAUCASIAN, OTHER RACE AND ETHNIC ALSO DESERVE EQUALLY RESPECT AND TREATMENT. THANKS. SERVICE IS GOOD BUT ATTITUDE OF STAFFS ARE JUST MEH."
Cons: "My parents needed special assistance for boarding and changing flights in Zürich and SWISS was just phenomenal. Thank you very muc"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "On board is pretty good except that the seats are pretty narrow compare to our previous experiences. As a reference, I am 5‘3“ and 110 lbs."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the seats were narrrow."
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice cabin, clean . Friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good. The crew did a great job of keeping the lavatories clean and stocked. It was a 10.5 hr flight and they gave us one meal, a snack and a treat. Not a lot but since we were just sitting it was enough food. We had to stop for a meal on the way home from the airport."
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."
Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats that were still very tight."
Pros: "Spacious Aircraft, nice business class, friendly crew, punctual flight"
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "The gate agents, crew, and food."
Cons: "Entertainment monitor kept stopping, then going, fast forward, then fast reverse. Watched a 1 hour 10 minute movie that took 2 hours 40 minutes to view. I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."
Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."
Pros: "Friendly Crew , modern and spacious aircraft B777"
Pros: "Proper business service all the way."
Cons: "The seats did lay flat but were hard and uncomfortable in the down position. The breakfast barley was completely unappetizing."
Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Cons: "the boarding was weird because of the aircraft change and rearranging of seats. the computer reassigned us very strange, making us seating mostly in one are, while other rows were completely empty."
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."
Cons: "The trip coming back to Chicago was a bit longer than going. The excellent service tgay eas provided by the crew made up for tgay."
Pros: "short travel time"
Cons: "the landing was way too drastic. The pressure during landing was not gentle and I had a real hard time trying to allow my hearing to come back. The blood pressure in my head felt like my head would explode. My head hurt for a long time. Did not like the flight at all."
Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"
Pros: "I was upgraded for some reason and holy cow was it awesome. Amazing food with more choices of what to eat. Massager in the chair and it nearly lied flat. So amazing and the perfect way to travel on a long flight"

Pros: "Crew and people were fantastic!"
Cons: "LONG lines again. No luggage even with a 4 hour layover"
Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."
Pros: "The crew was entertaining and pleasant. The flight was short and easy."
Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."
Cons: "It was put on standby because of overbooking. My luggage did not arrive with me. Next day, getting luggage was a hassle, not convenient."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly Drinks quality is acceptable Comfortable airplane seats"
Cons: "Both flights from Swiss (from Münich to Zürich and the flight in the opposite direction) were delayed by 30 min and 1h, respectively."
Pros: "Crew were perfect food was fine"

Pros: "The entertainment consoles are great, plane is modern and clean, staff on board are very considerate and helpful. Flight left and landed on time and our luggage arrived intact. Everything that we paid for we got."
Cons: "The space between the seats is very small, and the seats recline very far, I found myself a bit too tall to fit in them comfortably, as even reclined my neighbors seat was nearly pressed against my nose. My much shorter girlfriend did not have this problem, and slept through the whole flight. SWISS only has one or two check in agents at LAX, and the wait was about 3hr to process the 300-odd passengers on our 777. I know they're only running a flight or two a day from LA, but I am sure there's a speedier and more efficient way to check us all in."
Pros: "entertainment system was good. Pilot was nice crew was pretty nice ."
Cons: "No leg room uncomfortable seats food has gone way down hill since 2 years ago. None of the good chocolates anymore. check in people at the gates were cold fish."
Pros: "I love the food and the movies"
Pros: "I never usually like plane food but liked Turkish Airline meals on all flights I’ve been on so far"
Cons: "I do like turkish airlines but wasn’t happy with this flight. On check in we were left with seats towards the back of the aircraft. The lady seated neit to us in the aisle seat was in a wheel chair so was a problem if having to get in and out. I didn’t think it was fair that a person who depends on a wheel chair sits so far back on a plane. She also had to deal with our crying baby"
Pros: "The plane was too hot"
Cons: "Plane too hot"
Pros: "three main dishes. chicken. pasta. beef. I donot eat beef and pasta. I request her to give me chicken, but she told me that the chicken is finished. and donot ask me to take any other item."
Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"

Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."

Cons: "On the way back from Istanbul to London the plane was old and small, the TV kept shutting down,even the earpiece were not working."
Pros: "The staff were very welcoming and the seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was a little delayed"
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Cons: "Have yet to arrive"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Cons: "I book flights and they toke money and last minute when i went to the airport is not existing at all"
Pros: "Food was great so was service"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Turkey as flight was delayed. It was my worst flight experience because nobody wanted to help me. It took an hour of being ignored by various TA staff to eventually get my boarding pass to the next available flight to London. I nearly missed that one as well because of it. The staff in Turkey was rude and unhelpful and most didn’t understand English properly. There were a number of others having the same issues, it was an awful experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Cons: "Not enough security staff at Istanbuñ and no one from the airline to assist. The queues were too long at security so I had to run to make my flight. Lots of other people had the same trouble and I believe my cousin missed her connection."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight."
Pros: "Seats comfy. Turkish airlines rep came to collect passengers as previous flight delayed."
Cons: "TV/Movie/music database was empty for my seat. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment options. The food was very good for a relatively short flight. Definitely will keep flying Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The passenger that did get seat for her child and herself next to each other. So I gave up my window seat because another premadonna would not give up his. That was the only bad part."
Pros: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "everything was very well done"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, crew always helpful and glad to please."
Cons: "Atatürk airport link too confusing and decreased my flight experience"
Pros: "Very professional and very convenient."
Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."
Cons: "Service on this flight was significantly better than the Cairo flight, probably just because this flight goes to London. Welcome drink were promptly served but the food choice was still a big no-no. EVERYTHING CONSISTS OF DAIRY PRODUCT THAT I M ALLERGIC TO. When I brought this to the flight attendant's attention, none of them was apologetic and none of them tried to find out another solution to me, who was flying their airline the first time and didn't know the not-so-diverse food option."
Pros: "I normally always like flying with TK - this was a clear exception. Unfortunately what normally feels rather enjoyable was today some 18 hours of suffering."
Cons: "My headphone - outlet did not work - had to hold the connector manually the whole flight tonhear something of the movie. But the boarding procedure was far worse - it took almost 1 hour standing up due to new rules of technical equipment and all bags having to be opened. I understand safety goes above all - but off you know You have this time consuming process - do it in an area where people can have a seat while waiting!"
Pros: "Service was ok"
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Food was so so. Turkish offers free excursions into Istambul for passengers staying over 6 hours. The excursion departs at 12p.m. This flights arrives at 11.25 a.m., but the lines in immigration are stupidly long. We arrived at the counter at 12.15. In a very unfriendly way, they explained the excursion had left, and no possibilities for joining it in Town. So, we were stuck at the airport for several hours. How stupid is to offer an excursion to passengers in layover, but program a flight with 300 passengers to arrive just in time to miss the excursion? Somebody has to think this over. This excursion should leave at 12.30, and it would avoid dozens of passengers stuck and unhappy."
Pros: "Luggage left in Istanbul due to short connjection was delivered to my home the same evening. Check in was simple and quick."
Cons: "Seats too close together on A330 airplane, entertainment console difficult to use and flight attendent did not have patience to explain how to use it, ran out of main course and remaining chicken course was too spicy to eat, flight from Singapore was delayed in takeoff making it very difficult to make connecting flight,"
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "the first flight (from Dhaka to Istanbul) was long, but great. full entertainment. the second flight from Istanbul to London had zero entertainment (the flight is obviously international and 4-5 hours long). there should be an easier way to request a vegetarian meal when i buy my ticket through your website. I shouldn't have to go through some convoluted way of contacting the airline to find if there is a veg option."
Pros: "No personal entertainment screen. No USB jack. These alone are unacceptable esp for an international flight. Food was terrible - vegetarian option was plain pasta!. Seats cramped and too close together. Crew didn't manage passengers putting luggage away so passengers did it very badly taking up overhead room with jackets and small bags. Gate was overcrowded and hot without enough seats. Staff was pleasant though and friendly and courteous and efficient."
Cons: "This flight was pure misery. In the Istanbul airport flight gates are not announced until an hour before your fight. This would be fine if Turkish Airlines would also allow us access to our flight at that time. The gate had been announced and we had to wait for them to set up a security checkpoint before we could even sit at our gate. This security checkpoint was set up at a point where nearly everyone on the flight was waiting. This caused it to be a huge delay of people concerned about missing their flight. Little did they know that they had nothing to be concerned about because our flight would eventually be delayed two hours. We were eventually loaded onto our plane which apparently was having some technical issues despite just landing in Istanbul. There were people who had rode in on the plane that was eventually deemed unsafe to fly because of an error with the steering mechanism (which we were not even told what was going on until we boarded a second plane). While they determined this we sat on a hot, non air-conditioned plane full of screaming children. I understand why they were screaming and wanted to join in. We eventually had to deboard the plane and wait for them to secure us an alternate plane. They attempted to deliver the plane to the gate, but were unable to steer the first plane away from it, so we had to be transported by bus to the open tarmac. There was no order or organization as to how people were loaded on to either the bus or plane and it was pure and utter choas that delayed our flight even further. The plane we boarded did not have inflight entertainment so we sat on our four hour flight to London left to our own devices. When we arrived in London it was pat the point of public transportation trains running and I had to reroute to a bus. By the time I arrived at my flat it was 4 in the morning. Turkish Airlines has been the most chaotic, unprofessional, disorganized, and inefficient airline I have ever traveled on. My tale will continue with my return flights and how they lost my luggage and it hung out in Istanbul for a few days before being returned to me. I can not stress enough to others to never travel with this airline. The cheaper price is not worth it."
Pros: "Blankets, pillow, being served food and drinks regularly on a long flight, great choice of new movies."
Cons: "Touch screen did not always work."
Pros: "What can I say, didn't much like anything"
Cons: "Cabin staff were blatantly prejudice, would not assist anyone who wasn't Turkish or of their color. I had an injury and surgery to my right foot, and as a result was using a walking can for m9bility. One my return flight to UK one cabin crew member decided in their wisdom to place said cane in the overhead bin. I advised her, I didn't like nor think this to be a good idea. Things move when taking off and my fair was if one wasn't aware the cane was there it may fall and injure someone. She insisted, and put the can into the overhead bin, and surprise, one of her fellow cabin members opened this b8n, and down came the cane on a passenger's head. For her injury, they offered her water and proceeded to hand the cane back to me. On flight TK 603 or TK 1983 we were assigned seats in economy row 20 A and b, well my son was seated in 20B, almost sliced his palm on the armrest, because the cover that should have been there wasn't, thus exposing jagged metal. I had to insist that we be moved and they should NEVER allow the cabin be loaded with such dangers visibly exposed. They didn't seem to show much concern, since the flight was full of "blacks"...! On our maiden flight on this airline, we had a 15+ hour layover. Couldn't get assistance from airport staff on simple questions such as where could one rest for the 15 hours, airport staff are busy riding around on automated wheel chairs, and when we asked them to assist an elderly lady who obviously could not walk the distance to her boarding gate in Istanbul, we were met with glares, or look of "they don't know English" or simply being miss directed, whilst my son carried this ladies heavy bag, including his own, and I on my walking stick, until we located the infraction desk, where a true gentleman, by the name of Mahmet came to our rescue, or more importantly took over the matter and assisted this lovely lady who was heading back to new york, to get her water for her medication, a chair to sit on until a wheelchair was brought to her. Honestly, in the many years that I've traveled, I've never seen or encountered a group of unprofessional, disrespectful and just downright prejudiced to visitors to their country! You couldn't pay me enough to visit Turkey or ever fly Turkish Airlines again in my life. So, so disappointed and disgusted by the whole experience it begs the question, how was this airline voted the 2nd best airline in Europe? You must have a very low ranking requirement, or my expectations are just too high for this airline, airport and the people I encountered."
