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: "Efficient flight, crew professional"
Мінуси: "Food. Very bad. Cold sack meals and basically just the same twice. Not good fir a 11 hr flight."
Мінуси: "Sometime complicated to buy tickets, its sending you to other websites! It would be nice to buy everything straight from Kayak"
Плюси: "Food was ok"
Мінуси: "Nicer personal at check in ,nicer crew,better food."
Плюси: "The aircraft is a marvel."
Мінуси: "The food is a bummer. No coffee, no tea, no beverages. What's the point? How eating a stew is different from eating a small sandwich? What's the reason? Nobody care to explain..."
Мінуси: "everything...terrible airline"
Мінуси: "No entertainment. New airport in Instanbul not efficient. 30 minutes everytime of taxi after landing and before take off. Flight as usual 40 minutes in delay."
Мінуси: "delayed flight management"
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."
Мінуси: "Sit in the plane too tight"
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: "Flight was badly delayed and they changed the gates 3 times with no proper announcements. As a result connecting in Istanbul after 23 hours flight from LAX I missed my flight to Baku. I was made to pay EUR 651 one way at THY transfer desk for another flight which was also delayed."
Мінуси: "For THY being more professional, taking responsibility for their mistakes and not punishing their customers for THY carelessness. As I understand this situations happen all the time."
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."

Мінуси: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"
Плюси: "The bathroom was clean in the beginning of the flight. Speak some English ."

By the end of the flight there was hardly any jews laughed and no Lamons. The plane was not ready to be full Of people."
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."
Мінуси: "Boarding was disorganized."
Плюси: "I was very much impressed with the care and attention of people concerned about me boarding my plane on time once I reached the boarding gate."
Мінуси: "The difficulty I encountered in discovering and finding my boarding gate in Boston."

Плюси: "Baku airport stunning. Better dessert. Helpful crew. Perfectly on time."
Мінуси: "Salad lame. Istanbul airport needs upgrade. Gate change twice in 2 hrs, no good announcement system. Baku airport baggage carousel not up to the standard of the Terminal glory."
Плюси: "CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS THOUGHTFUL AND EFFICIENT."
Мінуси: "ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND, THE WAIT WAS LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED"
Плюси: "Freebies gifts"
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"
Мінуси: "So far, it has been a horrendous experience with Turkish Airlines. Airlines don't know how to handle uncertain situation, whole system collapses. Total disaster!!!!"
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."
Плюси: "For a short flight, it was good. The seats were a bit bigger, and the crew was nicer. The food was ok."
Мінуси: "Again some attitude from flight attendants. The food is average but again subpar compared to previous flights with Turkish Airlines."
Мінуси: "Not having a jet bridge and having to board a bus to get to the plane."
Мінуси: "Staff was rude, was so bad cannot even use word customer service to describe it"
Плюси: "The sevicewas great! i liked their food. It was very fresh and testy. The tv screen had a lots of great movies. I enjoyed my flight. Thanks"

Мінуси: "Everything was really good"
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!!"
