Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Customer service on point. Great food, comfortable seats. Availability of 2 check in bags is helpful for those who traveling for a longer time."
Pros: "appetizers excellent"
Cons: "steak was overdone."
Pros: "Perfect. 10/10"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and pleasent"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Mumbai was not that great. Leg space was not that great. Food overall was pretty same across the 3 meals. Expect more variety which I have seen on other airlines like Emirates and Etihad."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth. The food was also good."
Cons: "The passenger next to me in the middle was hitting his arm rest on my leg and made my flight uncomfortable because he would not sit still. I think crew needs to do a better job of making sure everyone stays seated when the plane is still moving before jumping out of their seats and grabbing their luggage. Passengers should be able to exit out of more than one door same as entering."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "I was served Butter chicken after confirming with the flight attendant whether it was an ASIAN VEG MEAL which I had requested. On being confronted about the issue, the flight attendant gave a cold response saying they were out of asian veg meals. One of the worse airlines and should not be a part of Star Alliance."
Pros: "Nice plane , nice crew. Ok food , not as good as Sfo to Ist ."
Cons: "We left delayed as it seemed they were waiting for someone. Older 777 wich shows wear."
Cons: "Too warm, chaotic boarding, not enough baggage space, airline couldn’t upgrade me at the gate with miles."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Same comment as above."
Cons: "No gangways."
Cons: "gate was announced at the last minute, and within 5 or 10 minutes of the announcement, the plane was boarding. the boarding process was not handled well. the entire hallway leading to several gates was blocked off for checking boarding passes and passports. it was not at all clear what was going on. no explanations were offered, and there was a huge crowd stuck in the hallway."
Pros: "Overall the experience was good. Cabin crew helpful."
Cons: "while going to US from Mumbai -Wheelchair service at Istanbul was found unsatisfactory. The attendanct was unfriendly adamant and rude. overall the wheel chair persons were neglected by the airlines (even at Boston ) but the cabin crew took care of all wheel chair persons."
Pros: "The amount of food and drinks we got was perfect, the movies, shows and other entertainment options were plenty and they had a great selection, and the sleep kit (slippers, socks, lip balm, etc) was very much appreciated and helpful. The staff were nice and professional."
Cons: "Boarding at Ataturk Istanbul airport was happening randomly. They did not follow the group boarding like in IAD airport."
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover. The airport is not organized. It was impossible to find any Turkish Airline help desks and personnel. I definitely would have expected to see more ground personnel helping travellers."
Cons: "I was in the middle seat next to a very big man. His belly and arm was spilling over to my seat. I could not even pull out my food tray from inside the arm rest. Had to eat with my food on my lap. Throughout the long flight his arm on my side and his elbow was hurting me."
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Value, food"
Cons: "For a ten hour+ flight the economy seats were very tight, but that is probably the industry standard"
Cons: "Staff at Business Class checkin walking off the desk when we tried to check in. The on-line check failed and that was the only reason to go to the counter, but, alas, it then took an hour to get things sorted because the single staff person just walked off because no one was there to relieve her."
Pros: "The entertainment and services of crew"
Cons: "The vegetarian food was not that good..it can be made better."
Pros: "Excellent Service & On time Schedule"
Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Cons: "Departure is 4 hours late. Missed connecting flight at Istanbul. Asked us to pay for Visa to stay in hotel. Did not have money. Also forgot to take Credit card from USA. As per the rule Airlines has to pay for Visa. They never paid. Asked us to pay. Totally harassment. Never book Turkish Airlines in my remaining whole life. Also will this incident to all my friends after going back to USA. Very very bad experience. Sat down 24 hours at Airport without food and sleep. Mostly will file a case against Airlines."
Pros: "same as my experience to Istabul, ths was a connecting flight, I saw their Ad in their inflight magazine, didn't know they were rated #1 6 years in a row. Was pleasantly surprised on how good they were. Comfortable seats, excellent on board service, food better than average, pleasant and professional staff. Try them, you won't be disappointed"
Cons: "Sits are uncomfortable and very tight compare to other delta for example also the food quality is poor, the quality and ingredients are cheap."
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."
Pros: "Flight itself was comfortable even though it was very full. Good, well maintained airplane. Great pillow and blanket. Somewhat hard seat. Love the newspapers they give us to read - what a selection."
Cons: "Istanbul airport really lacks seating for its passengers in the general areas. You need to sit in a restaurant to rest your feet as waits are quite long between flights. Another problem is the lack of internet for passengers without Turkish cell accounts. This should be corrected. Finally, lack of water fountains in the airport is also a problem."
Pros: "Food was good , crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "They lost my bag, no apology until I had to write a complaint, no reimbursement of anykind for bag arriving 3 days latter, and I can go on...."
Pros: "The overall experience was good but small gestures by crew can improve the same significantly."
Cons: "Crew slow to respond or non responsive even for a glass of water."

Pros: "The crew on the plane was superb and service excellent"
Cons: "The ground personnel in Istanbul were rude and prevented us from boarding before the general boarding even through we were business class passengers. She made us wait till all economy passengers were boarded before permitting us to board the plane. When the business class passengers requested to know the reason she just said this the way she was going to do it. She yelled at the business class passengers for no valid reason. I have travelled business class and never been put to such humiliation!!"

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."

Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"

Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"

Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. People still crowd around the boarding area despite there being row for the zones. Why they don't board from back to front is beyond me. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "The CDG airport is very bad in terms of finding your connections, the flight to CDG from LAX had a very old entertainment system and was hard to use."
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "Over all everything was great, except the bags check in"

Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"

Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "Tv screen is resolution is to low. Hard to see details."
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Cons: "No offer of snack with no egg in it."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"

Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "Smiling, quick, courteous"
Cons: "Had to pee right after turbulence no time for bathroom"
Pros: "Our flight from Prague to Paris was on time, very comfortable and inexpensive. Crew members were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overcrowded a flight in the middle of a global pandemic which shows they do NOT prioritize the health and safety of their customers."
Cons: "The controls for entertainment are on the arm rest so next passenger always hitting volume and channels"
Pros: "Everything was fine, I would probably take the flight again but nothing was above average"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized"
Pros: "Comfort and way treated"
Pros: "The premium plus seats are quite nice! Excellent movie selection too."
Pros: "The crew and the food was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and one of our bags was left in London."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "United crew were incredibly kind and accommodating. We had 2 lap babies and a 3 year old. They took our carry-on suitcases and checked them through to our destination without charge -- freeing up valuable hands in the process. They also arranged seats to make sure there were enough air masks for us and our 2 lap children. Our 3 year old had his own seat. In doing so, they moved me and 2 others so that my wife and I were in adjacent rows and there was an empty seat next to each of us (where our babies ended up sleeping). They were very kind and helped us in every way. Overall this was the best experience I've ever had on a flight, period."
Pros: "Leg room was good in economy plus but no entertainment. Flight ran on time though."
Cons: "WiFi was broken and only refreshments offered! No meals for purchase only snack boxes that were horrible."
Pros: "On time, plane in relatively good shape."
Cons: "The entertainment system is of low quality and kept freezing and needing reboot. It is almost impossible to hear the movie sounds. Somehow the food served was truly disgusting, like an horrible TV dinner. United always stands out on international flight for having the worst dinner served. Always take your own lunch with you! Finally it has been my consistent experience on United that the stewardesses are really unfriendly. They do their job just fine but do they look so miserable compared to other companies. Do the airline treat them real bad?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Short fly nothing fancy made it safe and in time."
Pros: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. Plane was old and dirty. Super crowded. Staff was unhelpful and rude at checkin and messed up my reservation."
Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "I’m still hungry. Walking halfway round the airport to get to my connection destroyed my eating time. I hate that food has been removed from domestic flights. Another long walk from landing gate to transportation while still hungry."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever Not enough overhead space"
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for 30-40 min"
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "No selection of drinks. They offer only wine. Also, no food for almost 10 hrs of the flight. They make you starve for food."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. I got to watch 2 movies which made the time fly by."
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Pros: "On time. Friendly employees"
Cons: "The snacks"
Cons: "Food sucks. Looks very cheap. Tasteless. Entertainment is so outdated. Cerws are so rude. I'm not flying with them ever."
Pros: "An empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined further than all the rest and the new seats that United has installed are incredibly uncomfortBle especially for a long international flight!!"
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work, After repeatedly asking for an aisle seat - I was asked to pay $200 for a seat selection."
Pros: "goos seat"
Cons: "There was no food what so ever while business got full dinner and the entertainment was very poor"
Pros: "The flight was fine once we were airborne."
Cons: "The flight was delayed SEVEN times. After boarding, we sat on the ground another hour. We didn't take off until almost 5 hours after the expected departure. Baggage claim took over 30 minutes, as well, which was exhausting after midnight when we were supposed to get in at 8."
Pros: "The staff gave out free snacks and were friendly"
Cons: "Too loud and the delay was an inconvenience"
Cons: "Two hours late!"
Cons: "Crew remained their usual ignorant, uninterested , back-of-the-plane kitty party groupies"

Cons: "The sits where very uncomfortable. And the snack is awful."
Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Pros: "Boarding was a smooth process. Seating was comfortable for economy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to maintenance issues. My entertainment screen did not work the entire flight. FA stated that the issue couldn't be fixed since i didn't notify them while we were still on the ground. Granted he was a friendly FA, I was only offered a "wine" for my troubles. One FA was very rude. Seem like she didn't like her job."
Pros: "I thought the whole experience was unorganized. The staff attempted to keep their calm but in the end they sounded just as organized as the flight line. (Referring to the trip as a whole)"
Cons: "I received 10 flight delayed notices on this trip. Five of the flight delayed notices were flight 6047. I missed a whole night in Oregon because of the delays and got in at 2 am into Charleston.. which was not ideal. I will not be recommending United Airlines. Also, for some reason the last flight was the coldest flight I've ever been on? I was tired, cold and miserable by the time I got to Charleston."
Cons: "The fact I had to purchase an entertainment package when I didnt previous flights. I felt as if the airline was takeoff advantage of a technical glitch."
Pros: "Staff are nice and helpful."
Cons: "Everything is an additional cost! Food, tv, beverages and that is not how it is anywhere else unless you are on a budget airline or flight which this was not."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Husband who is 6'1" had pain in his knees after flight."
Cons: "Due to my initial delayed flight I got to O'Hare during a drastically busy time. Due to the amount of people, noise, and dishevelment my PTSD became aggravated and I found myself having an attack. I chose the initial early flight to ensure this would not happen. I am aware of what causes my PTSD to become aggravated and I take that into consideration when I make all plans."
Pros: "Had no issues"
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Cons: "Had to pay if you wanted to watch regular tv."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super."
Cons: "Nothing really. I would like it if pilots would be more interactive. Tell passengers landmarks and cities/states they pass over. Seems no one does that."
Cons: "Do better for the meal according to the health safety."
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Cons: "cramped boarding space and Addis airport. Inadequate space for volume of traffic. Capital investment in expansion required if Ethiopian to compete!"
Pros: "Yes, the crew were nice and amazing"
Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"
Cons: "It was over booked. I wasted my precious time in the airport for half day... and the staff of ethiopian were not kindness."
Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."
Pros: "After the Kigali Addisababa segment this was vastly superior with a newer aircraft"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Pros: "Very conformable and quiet."
Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."
Cons: "There was a disruption with the audio system."
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "The crew were quite homely."
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."
Pros: "Not stopping in Blantyre"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Pros: "Seat layout-767 has only two seats across on the side sections, much better than three, which most planes have. Crew was courteous, captain explained reasons for delay. Plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours by weather. Ground operations seemed slow. All planes were delayed by weather, but ours took longer to get ready once weather cleared. Passengers were bussed to the plane for both boarding and disembarking while other planes used jet bridges."
Cons: "Not very clean Several used towels noted in seat"
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants and desk staff that were not trained to do check in well. No entertainment available."
Pros: "Nightmare , I am separated from my baggage since 28/Feb. until now and the airline is incapable of providing the real status of my baggage."
Pros: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."
Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it."
Pros: "The staff where so dedicated. The food was very real and crunchy. Go for the beef instead of chicken. I had both. Was a ten hr flight."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse)"
Cons: "The entire flight was fully booked and plane full of people with bad hygiene whose smell was so offensive that I was nauseous. My friend and I were the only two Western people on the plane and forced to sit in the last row of the plane next to the toilets. Passengers were rude and pushed us during boarding, on the bus, and when leaving the plane. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"

Pros: "aircraft was clean and excellent condition, crew friendly"
Cons: "pre flight information unclear, changing gates and unorganized boarding could be improved."
Pros: "Was lucky to be able to get 3 seats in a row, so could sleep.. They were able to put me in 3 seats again on return, so all good for me... Crew nice, leg room decent, entertainment was fine... Movie choices were not best I've seen, but first world problem... Overall I would recommend.."
Cons: "The return journey time from Dublin sucks... 6am flight, so u have to stay up all night pretty much... If they could change that, it would be amazing... Food not great, so you would be better off bringing your own stuff..."
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."
Pros: "Dreamliner was awesome"
Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"
