Pros: "Turkish airlines is better than all airlines I have used."
Cons: "The entertainment system could be more user friendly. Navigating the movies could be better. I'm not complaining, however. All in all, Tk is very good."
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
Pros: "Onboard service was good. Ben Gurion airport services were excellent."
Cons: "Departure was late by an hour which made me miss my connection. Because of this: I had to purchase a visa @$70 US Airport service in Istanbul was very bad. It took 2 hours before anyone would actually help me to organize my next flight to Milan. By the time I arrived in Milan, my family had left worried sick not knowing what happened to me. I then had to find a bus to take me to Lugano, another 25 Euros, and not to mention all the stress to me and my family. I then decided not to put myself through the same situation on my way back to Tel Aviv and purchased new ticket with another Airline company. Overall, the whole experience was a nightmare."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the entertaiment was very poor..there wasn't at all audio - music or whatever the landing was harsh the boarding was late"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Except the bad treatment in Istanbul connection to Tel Aviv which makes me reconsidering flying with the Turkish Air lines I have nothing serious to complain"
The bathroom wasn’t super clean
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."

Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, the service"
Cons: "The seats we were assigned ( we are two we'll feed person's and the seats are toooo narrow"
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pros: "Yelling, cheering and literally rolling in the aisle made for a really annoying flight"
Cons: "Infusions bad behavior. Also, flight number was changed and AF. Was understaffed to handle questions on squirrelly luggage check."

Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"

Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."

Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."
Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"
Cons: "Not comfatable very basic food"
Cons: "Online check-in didn’t work (and anyway there is no difference if you check-in online when you arrive at the airport). Security checks were very (very) tedious."

Pros: "The security and fast boarding"

Pros: "Good quick service from the flight crew."
Cons: "No airline food is really good but this one seemed really unsubstantial."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Couldn't access the website to add luggage. Couldn't choose seat on check-in - even though I strongly prefer aisle (and my frequent flyer preferences show this) I was assigned a window seat on the way back and couldn't change it. Seats are very cramped. When the person in front of me reclined I coul"
Cons: "Neither you nor pric line mentioned the fact that the return round of a round trip ticket did not include luggage disgusting."
Pros: "service good , food good flight smooth"
Cons: "they lost 3 of our suitcases took 3 days to get 2 and one is still not accounted"
Pros: "They let people with kids board first"
Cons: "Had the worst seats on the plane. we were in the back row next to the bathroom and by the flight attendants. The flush of the bathroom was so loud that it kept waking my kids and I up...also the flight attendants constant scurrying around our seats made it impossible to sleep. Not looking forward to the flight back"
Cons: "El Al switched the flight to IsraAir and the plan was very old and the most uncomfortable I ever was on."
Cons: "I ordered and paid for one backage to send and I was asked to pay becuse was not updated"
Cons: "Kosher food is very meager."
Pros: "Excellent condition excellent comfort"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "It's the 2nd time my luggage has been delayed/lost, and I really needed it for the next day since it had my work clothes/hospital info/stethoscope in it. The person at the lost and found counter was really great and helpful, I'm just upset since I only have travel clothes on now and can't show up to the hospital those"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "no entertainment in long flight small leg room kids in especial seats disabled the option of moving the seat in front row food - taistless"
Cons: "Spent most of the flight watching a good film but the system was shut in the final scene So annoying!!!"
Pros: "The crew were fine, Katia is EXCELENT."
Cons: "The poor chief stewardess was arguing for 1/2 an hour (!) or more with someone who sat in an empty seat next to emergency door. I understand that she has to do this - give her a break!! Big deal! You are SO small minded - charging 3$ for snacks that cost you 40 cents at most, in order to earn you... what - an extra few hundred $'s in the flight? Isn't this rather stupid of you? p.s. Katya is a wonderful stewardess"
Pros: "on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "old plane, no GPS, tiny video screen far away, revolting food both ways"
Pros: "I liked the security, and the Crew, they were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "There is no entertainment system. Kids didn't like the kids menu. Vegan dish was Great. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Lowest expectations"
Pros: "20 Years I avoided this airline due to lousy service. the team on this flight and previous one from Tel aviv to BCN were A OK"
Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"
Pros: "i like that I arrived safely. No delays."
Cons: "I didn't like nor appreciate how the staff interrogated me and treated me prior to boarding the flight. I understand that they have high security, but their attitudes are nasty and inhumane. So therefore I will never fly them again. Not to mention my luggage didn't make it. I had to go on without my luggage. They inspected and reinspected every single item on my carry on for like an hour in a different room. Kinda scary.! Other airlines check the bags in front of the passengers. Horrible experience and I travel a lot and had never experienced anything like that. Almost didn't feel welcome to be traveling to Israel. The flight attendants have attitudes and they yelled at me because I didn't speak or understand hebrew. Food on the plane is horrible too."
Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."
Pros: "Crew was kind."
Cons: "My husband and I never want to fly El Al ever again because the planes are completely outdated and somehow tickets are still full price. Every time we fly El Al the entertainment doesn't work, the screens are ridiculously small, the seats are cramped and the bathrooms are a mess. Every other airline we have used that costs the same or less is a completely different, and better, experience."
Pros: "Checking in. There was a problem with the tickets we ordered but there was a man named Joshua Dadana who was compassionate, helpful and professional who worked his best along with others whose names I did not write down to catch the flight to Israel. I would highly recommend your airline."
Pros: "Well, they were on time. Shockingly."
Cons: "I don't know how El Al gets away with serving people their so-called nightly "meal". They have the audacity to tell passengers it's a "tapas" meal. Tapas has nothing to do with it. You can choose between tuna salad (tuna drowned in mayo with mostly peppers) or chicken with tahini (mostly peppers again, with two small cubes of chicken drowned in tahini). They give you this with a small salad, pita and industrial hummus which is probably the best thing about this meal. Having being burned by this meal last time - they ran out and I got a "glatt kosher" meal - I took the vegetarian option, which was roasted peppers, salad made from 80% lettuce, 20% peppers and no dressing and an inedible cookie. I am allergic to peppers. There is no entertainment to speak of, because El Al sees no reason to update its planes, and there is no personal entertainment system. You can download an app to your phone called "Dream Stream", and stream some options from El Al, but then you have no where to charge your phone, so what's the point? The seats are ridiculously close together, and if someone leans back you really can't eat. Finally, I have no idea why they do this - but El Al flights from Europe don't attach to the terminal via ramp. You get out of the plane on a staircase, in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain, and then have to take a bus to the terminal. It's not like all ramps are busy at 4AM..."
Pros: "The food was good, it arrived on time. The film was interesting. The temperature was pleasant"
Cons: "I did not like the seat It was hard to watch TV, I had to bend my neck all the time. I had pain in my neck all the flight. I wish the chair could have been less erect. It was easier to put my head on the chair in front than on the back of my chair"
Pros: "The fast of Taanis Esther started at about 4:30am in the morning. The crew was kind enough to serve breakfast earlier than usually to accommodate those who were fasting. They probably had to sacrifice an hour or two of their own sleep, but it was really appreciated by the passengers. The crew should be complemented!"
Cons: "I sat in a seat with something under the seat in front of me. I couldn't completely turn off the screen in front of me."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable sitting in coach sitting. El-al should replace the seats for this plane. It felt almost like sitting on a piece of wood. Also entertainment options were very poor for a 11 hour flight from Boston."
Pros: "new entertainment system was nice"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive, and late to take off, plane was full and crowded. no leg room. food was rather poor"
Pros: "They had the perfect shows on the plane, the crew was very nice and positive"
Cons: "In both flights they had a problem with times and scheduele"
Cons: "Early chekin system deliberately alocated separat sieats for me and my wife, despite I cheked in 23 hours befor take off. The cabin crew was very unfrendly. The bording prosses was slow, messy and unplesent."
Pros: "Personal is very good. Helped us very quickly to change sits to something more preferable for us."
Cons: "Chairs are not comfortable at all. Food is low quality"
Cons: "Crew at the check in were rude, would not let us return the same handheld suitcases we came with, required we check them in, one which they did let us take was required to be measured again with the "cage" at the gate. The temperature on boath flights was very high even with max airflow. We were not allowed to bring abroad bottled water which we had bought at the duty free at the airport, and the aircraft chair would not recline and was extremely crowded with almost no leg space. Will not recommend!"
Cons: "time table was created to keep it it is not working with elal"
Pros: "We paid a full price and received a service of a low cost flight. Airplane was extremely uncomfortable, food- instead of breakfast- poor sandwiches with no choice for vegan. No earphones or music. It's a shame for el al to charge so high for such a chip and uncomfortable flight and service."
Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."
Pros: "My name is irit marko 0502931085 Please call me The crew was not nice"
Cons: "You charged my suitcase that was empty.i checked on line i did not see any thi g i tried to call no answer.i explain them that the suitcase was empty .my daugter start school there and we brought a lot of thing.the staff was impatient and not nice.we flew with other airline to larnka they were nice and understand the problem.my daugter is going to school there to medical school she and our family are not going to fly with you.they charge me 60 u more then the flight.very grify"
Cons: "Same movie in the flight to FRA and back.... Also there was no sound channel which sounded normal. all of them had some strange overlay of translation in foreign language and crew did not know how to fix it. My kids did not like the food at all although it was pasta with bolognese source that every kid likes - don't know how they messed this up. Flight was delayed by 1:15 hrs. Luggage took very long time to get out."
Pros: "It eventually ended."
Cons: "Someone on the previous flight threw up in my seat, it was never cleaned, it just soaked in. Flight crew swapped out the cover after 10 min of arguing with them but it stunk horribly. Mid way thru the flight I got up and when I lifted the seat belt I realized there was more vomit in the latch. No power adapters. Movies were super old and my screen was broken so I couldn't watch anyway. Music loop included Dolly Parton!"
