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"

Плюси: "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."
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: "Runny yogurt, hard bread, meals are served to late, not enough water given while flying No space between chair No snacks in between meals No communication in Istanbul for connecting flights They don't smile or greet on Istanbul very official"

Плюси: "On time, hard working staff."
Мінуси: "The usual dislikes: economy seats, crying babies, body odor of other passengers."
Плюси: "didn’t like anything"
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."
Мінуси: "Have yet to arrive"
Плюси: "The best trip! Thk"s! Good luck,T.Airlines!"
Плюси: "Food was great so was service"
Мінуси: "All was good"
Плюси: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "It was a short flight. Lemonade"
Плюси: "Great entertainment options. The food was very good for a relatively short flight. Definitely will keep flying Turkish Airlines."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "highly organized boarding process. I wish other airlines would adopt it. courteous, helpful staff, both on the ground and in the air."
Мінуси: "everything was very well done"
Плюси: "Very professional and very convenient."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS THOUGHTFUL AND EFFICIENT."
Мінуси: "ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND, THE WAIT WAS LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED"
Плюси: "Early arrival by full 30 minutes--great."
Мінуси: "Crying babies, but not airline's fault."
Плюси: "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."
Мінуси: "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!"
Плюси: "Average good service, food"
Мінуси: "Entertainment. Poor movie choice, headphones not good"
Плюси: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "It was a smooth flight."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "Staff was great."
Мінуси: "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."
Плюси: "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."
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."
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"
Плюси: "The flight attendants were pleasant and very attentive. Great meals."
Мінуси: "Had trouble with the seat leaning back on one of glights"
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: "The provide very good service."
Плюси: "All the movie options, the great food, the great service, and the timeliness of arrival."
