The layover in Istanbul was 1 hour 5 mins. That is NOT ENOUGH TIME to get from one gate to another and go through security again. By the time my plane landed from Kiev to Istanbul, the flight to San Francisco was already boarding. I had to cross a very long airport, go back into security check and then run another 15 mins. I barely made the flight and they were about to close the door when I arrived. Turkish Airlines should NOT SELL TICKETS WITH SUCH SHORT LAYOVER WITHOUT ACCOMODATING US or helping us to get to the other gate faster. It was a very bad experience. Why sell tickets with unreasonable layover times? It is not fair for the customer and not feasible to make the flight.
Cabin crew in business class seem so rushed. Hurry up and serve food, hurry up and clear trays, hurry up and get things done. It felt frantic but overall it was okay.

Плюси: "Seats were confortable, new plane, the crew was attentive, food was great."
Мінуси: "Need to update the movie library, the category with the new movies is probably a year or morw old."
Плюси: "So far nothing. Plane from Ukraine was delayed by 2 hours and we missed our connecting flight to Washington DC. Now we have to spend a night in Istanbul and missing the event that we had to attend on Feb 26!"
Мінуси: "Would be better if flight waited just 15 min to let passengers from delayed flight to get on board"
Плюси: "Liked that in this day's of cost cutting by most airlines, Turkish decided to win customers with Quality! Premium liquid soap, cologne and moisturizer in the lavatories, fresh seafood in ordered special meals, friendly service and good entertainment. Thank you! Didn't expect..."
Плюси: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Мінуси: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."
Плюси: "Food, clean plane, Nice staff"
Мінуси: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"
Плюси: "Food excellent,crew are friendly, polite."
Плюси: "The food and the staff are excellent. 90% of the time I can get an exit row seat as I am 6 foot 2. I fly Turkish airlines frequently. This time the plane was full, so I understand that it was not possible."
Мінуси: "A passenger and his wife were not seated together, so the passenger wanted to stand in the isle and talk to his wife over the top of me for significant portions of the fight. In a full flight keeping passengers out of the isle os key. I know this was a difficult flight for the crew."
Плюси: "Boarding and arrival was on time."
Мінуси: "Crew unprofessional, gave my vegan sister a chicken sandwich, forgot to serve some guests, they were unpolite and inpatient."

Мінуси: "Very uncomfortable craft with not enough space, the man sitting in front of me was lying on my knees for the whole trip even during service. I couldn’t watch TV ‘coz it was just in front of my nose."
Плюси: "I've flown with Turkish airlines a few times and compared to other airlines they are amazing. Even on short distance flight (1 hour flights) the offer a sandwich and drinks. If there are delays the pilot explains what's happening instead of leaving us clueless."
Плюси: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had."
Мінуси: "They're wasn't anything I didn't like."
Мінуси: "Boarding time was supposed to be 19:10, we did not start to board until passed 20:00. Needless to say we were delayed. There was a woman at the counter,but there was no explanation given about the delay. Luckily it was the last leg of my journey and did not miss a connection flight,but being on an 11 hours flight just before, I was a little cranky. Overall I had a great experience."
Плюси: "It was a short flight. Lemonade"
Плюси: "Food, boarding"
Мінуси: "Tight seats"
Плюси: "CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS THOUGHTFUL AND EFFICIENT."
Мінуси: "ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND, THE WAIT WAS LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED"
Плюси: "Freebies gifts"
Мінуси: "The tickets were booked on Turkish air but serviced by Air Canada. Neither company could change flights, check in or check me out of each other's systems. This caused most of my late night delays and struggles. Beware when using either or other online companies serving other vendors"
Плюси: "Exxcellent food."
Плюси: "Early arrival by full 30 minutes--great."
Мінуси: "Crying babies, but not airline's fault."

Плюси: "Average good service, food"
Мінуси: "Entertainment. Poor movie choice, headphones not good"
Плюси: "Thanks for the homemade cookies :)"
Плюси: "Nice little commuter plane from one destination to another. Nothing particular fancy or negative to say other than a good charter plane to get to your layover for the final flight back home."
Мінуси: "Not having a jet bridge and having to board a bus to get to the plane."
Плюси: "The crew was nice"
Мінуси: "Noisy..people up in the isle, drinking...just being laud."
Мінуси: "Staff was rude, was so bad cannot even use word customer service to describe it"

Плюси: "Food was excellent. Service was awesome."
Плюси: "Selection of movies and other entertainment options"
Мінуси: "The distance between seats is pretty small. It was very uncomfortable 11 hours flight for a 6 foot tall individual. On our flight back I called flight attendant several times, however no one came and each time "call attendant" light was turned off remotely."
Плюси: "It's been few years that I took Turkish Airline flight, but the service and crew and the aircraft were top notch. It felt like Virgin Atlantics flight and better. I flew with my 3 yo and the stuff kept spoiling him with goodie bags. On the way there (it was overnight flight) I'll give it 5 out of 5 and on the way back - it was a bit cold on the flight, it might be just me, however. The food also seemed better on the way to Turkey; on the way back I found myself hungry more often and the food was not as good (day flight). Excellent, will definitely fly again, just for the service and the experience!!"
Мінуси: "On the way back - it was a bit cold on the flight, it might be just me, however. On the way back I found myself hungry more often and the food was not as good (day flight)."
Плюси: "The provide very good service."
Плюси: "The flight was fine, the crew courteous and everything was ok until I got to my destination."
Мінуси: "It turns out my checked luggage never made it to Budapest and the people at the airport did nothing to help with the fact that I had nothing on me because of that. They took my information to deliver the suitcase but since the luggage would not reach me for at least a week they did nothing to compensate for the fact that all I had on me were some books and my computer. I had to buy all new toiletries and since I am travelling for work basically had nothing to wear for my meetings. This was a really bad experience"
Плюси: "Aircraft was new and clean, and the crew was both professional and friendly. The food was excellent and it was a surprise to be served a full lunch on a 2-hr flight in coach class. All in all a great experience."
Плюси: "Turkish Airlines were a great surprise - everything was much better than expected. Highly recommend flying with them."
