Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage.

Cons: "See literally everything above"

Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"

Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed."

Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"

Pros: "Once on the plane everything was fine."
Cons: "My first flight was changed. Only one email was send about that change. It got lost in some other emails so I didn't see it. But I did not receive any other update or reminder. So I had figure out how to change all of my flights from there to Kansas in the States. All with bad internet service and unhelpful costomer service. And having to deal with two unexpected long layovers. All that to say, sending periodic emails is important especially if the flight had been changed."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I liked the space I had in my seat."
Cons: "Being surrounded by 8-10 babies who were consistently crying, being delayed almost an hour, my TV didn't work, and the food was terribly bad more so than usual."

Pros: "Service Good Clean On time"
Cons: "Price is high"

Pros: "Pillows"
Cons: "No vegan good woithout order"

Pros: "Crew was very nice though took very long to clear after meal. I love flying with Turkish Airlines on my business trips I guess August is not the best time .."
Cons: "Flight was very full yet boarding was done with bus not a walk trough gate Screaming children and loud parents made the short fligh literally a nightmare. This is not in the airline control unfortunately yet impacted badly on my flight experience."

Pros: "It was a quick 2-hour flight with a delicious meal."
Cons: "I sat in the only seat that didn't have a working personal entertainment system."

Pros: "'we took of late. I WAS PROMISSED ON THE PLANE THAT SOMEONE WILL ASSIST ME TO GET TO MY CONNECTION . IT DIDNT HAPPEN . I LOST MY CONNECTION AND WAS TREATED AT THE DESK AS A VAGABONED. THE PERSON WAS RUDE AND HE YELLED AT ME ! IWAS AFFRAID TO GO TO THE CITY AND STAYED IN AN HOTEL IN THE AIRPORT THAT COST ME 138E SHAME ON THEM ZEHAVA TELEM GILLADI"

Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."

Pros: "Liked that the flight was on time and the plane clean. Online seat selection and check in was helpful but there was no wait at the airport either."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Food was poor, but it was only a short flight."

Pros: "Very comfortable, lovely stuff, the vegan food was good"

Pros: "Excellent service. Food was great too!"

Pros: "I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked decent."

Pros: "Spaced seats, kind crew"

Cons: "Flight was very late departing, despite arriving on time. No excuse other than simply inefficiency. No drinks offered, during 45 min flight. No headphones given for entertainment."

Pros: "Food is fresh and tasty. Safe landings and overall flight experience is very pleasing."

Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."

Pros: "the boarding was fine, we were on time and the staff was pleasant."
Cons: "the food was ok, they played one movie for everyone to watch and our screen was not the best, small seats with no leg room, filthy greasy window i had to clean to look out of."

Pros: "Check-in counter staff"
Cons: "boarding process"

Pros: "The seat was comfort"

Pros: "Great chairs"
Cons: "Great flight company"

Cons: "There was a gate change shortly before boarding but it wasn't ever announced on the loudspeaker. I was sitting at the original gate and by sheer lucK happened to get up and walk past the departures info screens only to see that my flight was listed at a totally different gate. I feel I could've easily missed my flight even though I was sitting right there at the gate that had been listed when I first arrived to the airport."

Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding process. Lunch o.k. but nothing special."
Cons: "My husband is 5'11' tall and was extremely uncomfortable because his knees were right up against the seat in front of him. The man on the other side of me was also very uncomfortable because of the same reason. I am only 4'11" and so I didn't have a problem. I would have rated this trip excellent except for the uncomfortable seating. I know this is done to cram in as many seats as possible into the plane, and thus sell more tickets, but from a passenger's perspective, this is a terrible practice."

Pros: "Only check in with business line and fast track"
Cons: "Same bus with economy passergers there are not Enugu room for my hand bags the crew wait all economy passengers to load and close the doors the they start to serve us and there r no interterments on the aircraft Business class in Turkish air line worse the economy class in qatar airways or Emirates or ethad"

Pros: "New plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "No choice on the food because the other option ran out."

Pros: "This flight was short and easy. Easy to board. Served an awesome cold breakfast. No problems."
Cons: "No personal screens."

Pros: "I liked my second flight from istanbul to munich, great food, good seats and a private tv"
Cons: "I didnt like my first flight from tel aviv to istanbul, horrible airplane, no place for legs, bad food."

Pros: "The food is always good!"
Cons: "Thry promide Wifi but it didnt work Touch screens- the touch works really bad"

Pros: "Tv and food also attendants"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and easy to communicate with. The Food was average, but better than other flights I have taken. The Entertainment system was stellar, new, large screen, tons of choices. This flight really went quickly for me."
Cons: "I had a big problem with the Baggage allowances on this particular flight. I was only allowed 20kg on a long (8hr) international flight, one which I was moving around the world for. If the policy was more like 40kg, there would have been no problems whatsoever and my trip would have been the best I have experienced in a long time. I suggest they improve their regulations quickly to widen their customer base."

Pros: "The meals were superb as was the selection of Turkish wine and spirits, Flight crew was warm and very attentive and the in-flight movie selection was stellar. Can't find a single negative thing to say. I love Turkish Air."

Pros: "The crew and food were good"
Cons: "Overall a bad experience both ways: Flight from TLV was cancelled. 48 h delay. Seats lost. Handling by both the ground crew in TLV and the Turkish Airlines customer service was poor. Plane in TLV parked in Terminal 1 but boarding was in terminal 3. A long bus ride was needed to reach plane. Connection in Istanbul is bad. Lines were long and not orderly. Bad experience overall. Flight out of Istanbul was late. The reading light did not work. The crew was very nice and service was good. Again, luggage did not arrive. This time 2 out of 2 pieces. One piece arrived a day later the second took more than 48 h."

Pros: "Great customer service, great food, great entertainment, and comfortable. Highly recommended."
Cons: "The worst that happened all times I've flown with them was a 40 minute delay."

Pros: "Good short flights"
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "The airline didn't let me go on the flight and I had to buy another flight with a different airline. I am asking for a refund. Please contact me Regards Dotan"

Pros: "Delayed for several hours before departure, plane was too hot, there was a glitch in the movies, AND they lost my bag."
Cons: "Sucked"

Pros: "The hospitality"

Pros: "the food is fantastic. even though the flight was short they still gave us food. In the US they don't even give you peanuts unless your flight is over 5 hours. We loved the freshly squeezed orange juice and the lemonade was to die for"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't make the connection from our earlier flight from Tel-Aviv which is a total pain. We landed at our final destination (Salt Lake City Utah) on Thursday December 31, but our luggage didn't arrive in Salt Lake until last night (Jan 2nd) at 11pm MST. Thankfully the luggage was lost on our way home and not on our way to our vacation, but it is always really frustrating."

Pros: "Food fine."
Cons: "Crew was polite, but knew nothing about what we should do when we landed in Istanbul. Given that we circled for an hour and then sat on the tarmac for TWO hours, they had plenty of time to ask what passengers should do about cancelled flights. Very discouraging. Video system never worked."

Cons: "The crew was extremely rude."

Pros: "The flight was ok overall, we don't like to complain :)"

Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"

Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."

Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."

Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, each arrival was not too late."
Cons: "Had to check a bag at the gate, despite being under the two-bag limit. However I was not charged (as my destination was intercontinental)."

Pros: "This time I found an ail place"

Pros: "Very good pilots, good flight without any noise or air pockets."
Cons: "The flight back departed in a delay of 40 minutes, we lended very late."

Pros: "the crew was friendly and helpful. it wasn't such a long flight and despite that, they still had smiles on their faces when you needed something."

Cons: "We were delayed. I was also asked to switch seats and was placed next to an ultra orthodox family, who was NOT happy to be seated next to a woman. This put me in an extremely uncomfortable situation, and the crew was not helpful in helping me resolve this. I basically had to go back and undo the switch myself - I would like to point out that the airline has just as much responsibility to protect me and my rights as they do to protect the other passengers, and I feel they fell short."

Pros: "Check-in smooth. Flight attendants pleasant, professional and service-oriented."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment offered a very conventional set of movies from which to select."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "We were forced to pay for our checked bag and it felt like a scam. We even showed the staff the website where it said free 1st checked bag and they said we don't work for LOT we work for airport. Very scammy to me. Felt very unfair."

Pros: "Getting off at the end"
Cons: "Food, seats, no entertainment the worse business class in the industry. Boarding was also a mess. Absolutely no redeeming features."

Cons: "We were charged extra 50$ for our bags despite of Terms said that one bag up to 23kg is free"

Cons: "No space"

Pros: "The service, 2 exits from the plain, blanket and pillow"
Cons: "No food and entertainment"

Pros: "Newer plane. More efficient boarding process."
Cons: "No entertainment system at all."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "ok"

Cons: "Extra 3 hours delay over the 9 hrs wait in Larnaca Airport. After 12 hrs transient, no accommodation (food or drink) at all on LAC - WAW trip. It is awful"

Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Slow cue at check-in. Boarding gate miles from Security, 25mim walk. Plane aged. No food, tea in a flimsy paper cup. No entertainment."

Cons: "This plane is never on time. Count at least 45 min delay. I avoid this airline. Take their tickets only if they are significantly cheaper than the competitors."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "We where more than 3 hours late. Crew couldn't care less about even saying welcome to you. plane was filthy"

Pros: "I wasn't late I was running in the airport to couch the flight & they close the bordering they didn't let me in & I have to pay extra ticket & staying in the airport for 20 hours I lost my laggegg they found it after 3 hours. It's really bad. U give us 30 minutes to cotch other flight. I lost money & I lost my vocation because this application it's really bad I felt for the first time I'm Gypsy homeless."

Cons: "U have to refund the money back this is worst experience I had in my life"

Pros: "Worst coustemer service"
Cons: "No one can offer help whether online or onboard"

Pros: "I liked having a backpack."
Cons: "My backpack went missing and I have not received any word as to where it is. I am very upset about this, and I will be calling the airline as soon as I return to the United States. I was guaranteed that my backpack would be sent to Warsaw and it was lost in transit. I am extremely angry about this."

Pros: "Since we lost our second plane due to an emergeny on the first flight, the airline put us on a nice hotel to spend the night and got us new tickets to our final destination."
Cons: "There were not many flights available so we had to stop in Stokholm and then fly to Oslo."

Pros: "There was an incident with a passenger. He had an emergency and the plane went back to Berlin and got him an ambulance. From my point of view, if it wasn't for the Doctor (passenger) on board, he wouldn't have made it. It could've been anybody, even me or my friend traveling with me so, Great job! Congratulations to the Pilot and all the crew!"
Cons: "WE tried to Check in online and it gave us a bit of trouble. I think it was because of the connecting flight, it kept checking us in to the second flight but not the first one."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "low cost service was good"

Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "LOT planes were late to both directions to the place and 2 weeks later from the place. When we flew with my little daughter - toddler to the destination the plane was late and as a result we were late to another plane, so they sent us to the same destination country but to the different place and then I had to find out were to go further while our luggage was lost (found in 3 days). When we flew back, the plane was late once again and I was told that we might will be left until next day morning, so lots of nervous and stress. The food provided was very poor as well - basically just small chocolate bar and water, tea or coffee, so if you are hungry it would not really help you."

Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "LOT planes were late to both directions to the place and 2 weeks later from the place. When we flew with my little daughter - toddler to the destination the plane was late and as a result we were late to another plane, so they sent us to the same destination country but to the different place and then I had to find out were to go further while our luggage was lost (found in 3 days).

The food provided was very poor as well - basically just small chocolate bar and water, tea or coffee, so if you are hungry it would not really help you."

Cons: "Toilets smelled terribly"

Cons: "No food"

Pros: "On time and a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Simple, quick service."
Cons: "Very basic service but not really any issues."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Cabin crew were at least apologetic after the delays and shambolic boarding process (see below)."
Cons: "Chaotic flight that was delayed due to overbooking and the failure to deal with it in any competent way. An apparently overbooked flight led to a cascade of errors - there seemed to be a total breakdown in communication between the gate/services team and the ground crew, etc. as to where the extra passengers came from and what could be done with them. They even admitted to their being many misunderstandings among the LOT staff themselves as they struggled to rectify the situation. The worst outcome was that we got trapped in the bus, right outside the plane, for 30 minutes. They had sent us to board while back at the gate they were still arguing over who should actually be on the plane. During this time there was no sign of the cabin crew at all. After 10 minutes or so the driver left to go and have a chat with some of the ground ops team and we were left on our own as the windows steamed up and small children started to cry. The whole thing was an appalling exercise in miscommunication - both between staff themselves and between staff and passengers."

Cons: "We orderd the two tickets with 1 luggage for each person. When we got to the airport they told us that the luggage is not included and we had to pay additional 91 dollar per each luggage. They just tricked us."

Pros: "Crew were really helpful and it was great as we travelled with infant."
Cons: "Nothing really to complain. Perhaps the only negative thing is that the plane was a little small."

Pros: "Boarding was relatively quick"
Cons: "After the first hour when food/drinks were handed out, the cabin crew (Economy) seemed to disappear entirely to the back of the plane and spend the rest of the flight chatting with each other until the final meal just before landing. I don't expect champagne service in Economy but the flight attendants could have been more proactive in walking down the aisles occasionally rather than just when handing out meals. If you needed a drink the best option was to head to the back of the plane and pour it yourself. In fact, most of the passengers did precisely this!"

Cons: "No good meals available in the flight."

Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Seats are for small legs No food No water to drink"

Cons: "Food could have been better than just sugar wafers."

Pros: "The fact I could get off the plane quickly. And that was it."
Cons: "Boarding-crowded people with very poor management. No separate queue for status members (in theory there was but you had to fet through lone of people anyway). Pushy selling gate upgrades for ridiculous prices. Flight was almost full so I asked for an upgrade but obviously was refused (which doesn't really surprise me) but when I asked if there would be any discount for StarAlliance gold status member they said of course... Not. Plane was disgusting and filthy. My traytable was dirty underneath and I had to clean it myself as crew did not respond for 7 call bells over around 60 minutes. A/C vents were dirty and there were clusters of dusts visible. One of my co-passengers was a dead bug between the inner and outer window. First drinks were served after 1.20h and food 2.50h. You can only get cheap wine or beer for free. If you fancy not-so-fancy Gin and tonic you need to pay separately for both. Entertainment was very limited. No WiFi. With my breakfast I got a piece of foil packaging served in-between leaves. Food was edible but of a quality of convenience store ready meal. Only 2 cabin crew were nice and competent. Rest was total opposite. LOT should call they B787 a Dreamfailure or Nightmareliner rather than a Dremliner."

Pros: "the return flight"
Cons: "I was told that I needed a card. I told them I had the number, and they said NO SUCH number. Then the card was found (witht he same number I gave them) but the card didn't work. The workers were extremely mean."

Pros: "It got me there safely"
Cons: "No free drinking water and it wasn't that cheap of a flight to say it a budget airline."

Cons: "Old plane, really crowded seats, the air crew doesn’t bother to clean the lavatories. Those who are working that is as the toilets up front were out of order..."

Cons: "Almost one hour delay to board and take off!!!"

Cons: "My bag did not arrive"

Pros: "price good -- and it worth try again -- get more from this price"

Pros: "Flight started late and even I was threatened not to be boarded and to be moved to a later flight (midnight) because "I had arrived late at the gate" which is twice absurd because: 1st I arrive slightly late - but still on time for the regular borading - only because the previous flight - operated by the same company was LATE 2nd the flight left 1h and 1/2 late, so my delay - if any - in coming at the gate was irrelevant"

Pros: "The flight was delayed, presumably due to weather conditions"

Pros: "As noted above"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice, a lot of empty seats"
Cons: "Noisy children..."

Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airline stuff was bad in palne which not care about undisable boy was travel with me"

Cons: "Every service bad"

Pros: "Did not like anything about it,"
Cons: "My luggage is lost I am in Erbil just me and my passport !!! Hello no compensation no sorry !! Just fill a form and put your name and bye !!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were delayed 7 hours without any explanation or compensation or apology."

Cons: "the flight was delayed without telling us why we were late from our next flight"

Pros: "Fast boarding on time departure nice crew"
Cons: "really narrow seats no options to lower the back of the seat Water cost money no TV"

Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly"
Cons: "I expected to atleast get a glass of water"

Pros: "Firstly, Overbuggage limits were put into practice with a mindset of just to f* the customers and consequently almost every single passenger has to end up paying at such overated fees that were equal to a level of a business ticket of any well known first class airline company.I , myself, had to pay 450£ in total for the ticket , just because of 34 kg of a luggage weight though 20 kg of this amount was included in the ticket. Sirs, if you really will only take this complaint as just to watch and say that this was a company policy then i will definetly never choose your services either again.Also, from the bottom of my heart, i will never feel tired to share and spead around this nasty experience of mine on each and every social media occasion , when i will have a word to say. Within only one flight on that day ,the total buggage revenue of the company was equal to a sum of 23,000 £ in total, despite the plane was ridiculously abit bigger than a small box. Sirs, Pls rethink over what i said. This is far beyond to accept and fit into any int'l trade rules.17£ fee for 1 kg !?? Best Regards"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"

Pros: "This was a domestic flight, only hour and 30 min. Same aircraft as from London to Istanbul, nice and comfortable seats with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was only hour and 30 min, so I have no criticism for this flight"

Pros: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"
Cons: "Transfer between flights was on a short timescale and I received several warnings from pegasus about delays at the airport, because of this I purchased a fast track via their site. This was a total waste of money as there was only one Peterson dealing with fast track and long queues, this meant that ordinary queue was dealt with faster."

Pros: "Connecting flight to Stockholm was cancelled. Had to fly to Copenhagen and perchuse another flight with SAS When complaining to their staff the answer I received was that no other airline would even give me an option to fly to Copenhagen (where I was not headed by the way) in short - paid another 300$, got to Stockholm 3 hours late and will never fly them againb"

Pros: "All was good but I thing thy need to give food with no pay 3.30 h fly thy need something free"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor everything is poor, they are very bad specially the crew when u check in they will let u pay even for the hand baggage extras kg even if u did shopping from the duty free they will let you pay for the weight. The worst crew ever."

Cons: "My tent poles, which were attached to my bag were lost. I am hiking in Switzerland and have no tent now!!!"

Pros: "Great team and great pilot everybody to the baggage people were excellent!"

Cons: "All they wanted was money. It was a scam. What is 8kg for a canyon? They would have charged me $75 for 5 kg! The only reason they didn't is because their system was down. They tried my credit cards and when that didn't work, they asked for cash. I never carry more than $5. There was no order in the airport and it was absolute mayhem. I went from line to line. I will never use this airline aha in! TWO hours to get my boarding pass? Anthony Gallo"

Pros: "Was first to check-in and received exit-row seat with its extra leg-room."
Cons: "Exit row seats do not recline .. so could not lie-back on this overnight flight."

Cons: "the staff at the disk was so bad they charge me for extra weight more than what it should be they try to change the currency from turkish lira to euro then to my country currency just to collect more charge???. also when I paid by my visa card they didn't give me my recipt which mean they did something dicey."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."

Cons: "It took me two hours in line just to print my boarding pass even though I checked in online. Many of us thought we would miss the flight. Terrible customer service. I'm never flying with them again"

Pros: "smile of 1 crow chair not bad"
Cons: "timing check in boarding landing I had 2 flights and both we boarded late and arrived late of course. I will never use this air lines again in my life"

Cons: "Check in took 1.5h, that is why me and my wife werent seating next to each other, and also we almost missed our flight."

Cons: "Not even refreshments or a glass of water, almost all flights were delayed, no entertainment, lousy experience..."

Cons: "We wait 1.5 hour....no good air conditional....no water and no juice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I was lucky enough to have the seat next to me free, so I was comfortable during the flight itself"
Cons: "The ground service was really bad and even insulting. I was a little overweight and the girl at the counter was very rude, and eventually made me through away snacks I was keeping for the flight. Also, the weight limit is ridiculous if you're travelling for more than a weekend (I went on a 3 weeks trip with camping). On the flight itself there's nothing provided, even when I asked for water they charged me for it (no option for just a glass of water)."

Pros: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."

Pros: "It was a smooth ontime flight, helpful customer service."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, plane was clean and tidy."
Cons: "People were able to bring on oversized checkin luggage which reduced cabin space and forced people to gate check."

Pros: "Nothing at all . The only reason I get ticket from Pegasus was because they are landing near my house in stanstead airport"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "Seats look congested. The noise of plane was very high which is not like others. I m frequent flyer even I travelled with Pegasus in November last year 2015 for Istanbul. Maintenance of plane to reduce the noise"

Cons: "2 hours delay"

Pros: "we arrived the airport late but luckily the counter close 30 minutes before flight departure the ground staff help us check through baggage to our final destination-Milan"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After the experience with the Pegasus flight from Kuwait to Istanbul I didn't expect anything hence was not disappointed. Right before the boarding was finished the boarding lady came into the plane looking for me, checking my passport one again and even taking a photo of it (with my consent). She left with no single word of explanation. Once again: this is a joke but definitely it's not customer service."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Totally useless. Dirty plane, lousy service. Was ready to pay for refreshments as I had to take this low cost airline for time reasons. When trying to pay with a credit card the stewardess was telling me it was a debit card (as if I didn't know what my cards are) - after a while it appeared she mixed online and offline cards for credit and debit cards, yet she was increasingly arrogant while trying to convince me my card is a debit one. So I tried to pay cash with 100 EUR bill and she told me she was going to return the change in Turkish lira! The male steward was just standing next to the trolley without saying a word, looking afraid of his aggressive lady colleague. That's what I call customer service! The particular flight was PC861 Kuwait - Istanbul on June 17."

Cons: "not direct fligth"

Pros: "The actual flight to Turkey was ok. nothing horrible happened."
Cons: "I came four hours before my flight, about 4 a.m.. two and a half was spent sending me back and forth because they couldn't agree on what was an appropriate price to charge me for extra baggage. The girl at the baggage counter called Pegasus and they told her the amount. When I got back to the baggage counter, the man there started checking my bags then the supervisor started yelling at me and him, because of a "miscommunication" between the other girl and Pegasus. I heard the other girl explain, and it was no communication. The supervisor as she called herself was extremely rude and short tempered with EVERYONE. Plus, they wanted to charge me 215 dollars for one extra bag. Really? I finally took a few things out and got away with under 90 dollars from the 20 dollars they were going to charge me before. I would have been happy to book with another airline that would have easily come under that price, and I barely got to my gate on time. I booked with Turkish air prior and it was 200 dollars round trip and I was very happy. My bags and food were free. When I got to Turkey to change flights, we had to get off the plane we were on and get on another, and my flight was over two hours delayed. We had to stay at the gate, and so I couldn't buy food at the airport. I would have gotten to Frankfurt at two so the small breakfast I had would have been ok, and now I had to buy food on the plane because I had planned also to meet a friend for dinner outside of Frankfurt before another flight (actually the entire reason I was flying with Pegasus in the first place) and now I wouldn't make it. Can you imagine spending all that money plus a hotel and the entire reason you went is just gone and you have to deal with all of this? So I go to buy food on the plane and I'm told my credit card doesn't work. The funny thing is, previously I checked my bags with the same credit card, and afterwards I rented a car and hotel with the same card. I knew my credit card worked. I made her try it again and nothing. So I just had to live on the small amount of yogurt I had had that morning. There was no apologies or anything for everything we went through except when my credit card wouldn't work the flight attendant gave me some coffee for free. I'm not a complainer and actually travel quite a bit (I've been traveling for 3.5 months straight all over europe and the middle east). This has been the only negative experience I've had. I truly believe that Pegasus does not care about keeping customers. I really feel like I've been treated like dirt, and that I was tricked into booking with them. I've always booked with Kayak and will continue to, but I would reconsider working with Pegasus if I were you. The other discounters like Ryanair are just fine. But this experience made me extremely angry and I will never book with Pegasus again."
