It was a pleasure to travel with Turkish Airlines. Excellent food, entertainment, and staff, not to mention the little pouches with basic necessities for the flight and the safety bags. It really gives you the feeling that this company cares for the comfort and safety of their clients.
Pro: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Contra: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pro: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Contra: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pro: "Very professional !"
Contra: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."
Contra: "Cramped overhead luggage space. Delayed due to technical reasons. Previous flight was completely cancelled."
Pro: "The service and food are always fantastic. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The ticket price was fantastic too!"

Pro: "The plane :)"
Contra: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Pro: "Everything was great."
Pro: "Better than all others at this time."
Contra: "The grilled cheese sandwiches. They've been in the menu for a while but my family does not enjoy them at all. Tuna sandwich on another flight was much better. Also lack of entertainment. They allow you to access it, then they turn it off. Is such a tease. Plane left late and kept us in very hot cabin."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
Pro: "Staff was very helpful and kind. Very delicious food."
Contra: "Clientele on plane are junky. The crew is rude. Boarding is chaotic. No information about delays or why things are taking so long not shared. Planes feel old and dirty. Strongly do not recommend."
Pro: "On-time departure. very polite and friendly staff and we got there fast!"
Pro: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Contra: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Contra: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
Pro: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Pro: "Length of flight was very tolerable"
Contra: "Transfer was chaotic. The crew could have informed the passengers about the transfer better. They simply haven't help at all on guidance to transfer."
Contra: "Call or sms passengers . Waiting 4 hours and nobody at onboarding counter is not acceptable Plane acilities and meal under any expectations"
Pro: "Great seating & service"
Contra: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Contra: "The flight was delayed for 47 minutes and the boarding was a mess because they changed the plane at the last minute and everybody's seats were mixed. Then it was understood that there's over booking on the flight then they again lost time for searching for volunteers to drop their flight and take a further flight."
Pro: "Nothing. The flight never happened coastumwr service was very bad"
Contra: "The were not very helpful, I lost the plain and they refuse to change my dates. I am I elderly women and they took advantage. I was force to by one more ticket when I live from I very small income. So know my 3 months social security I have to pay the new ticket. No mony left for food or my medication."
Contra: "Lost the bag and will return it . Still discussing with them after five days. Promising to deliver each day but then not doing it. Miserable experience and do not recommend using this airline."
Pro: "The rear exit of the plane. The cabin crew were very attentive, almost too much. I brought my cat and she didn't get to sleep much. I appreciate that the attendants wanted to visit with her and give her their attention but it kept her from sleeping and woke me up. Since she had no proper place to use the bathroom she needed to be sleeping to keep her body clock in order."
Contra: "HOT AIRPORT AND PLANE...no overhead fan on the plane to cool off. Food not very tasty. My seat was switched after it was reserved to accommodate another passenger without my knowledge. The reason was not a valid one."
Contra: "leaving late"
Pro: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Contra: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Contra: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Contra: "Nothing :D"
Pro: "aircraft was clean and well maintained, generally good service on board"
Contra: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Istanbul, information provided to passengers about delay and options was nonexistent"
Pro: "The food was amazing."
Pro: "The crew was nice."
Contra: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Contra: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."
Pro: "Onboarding, crew attention, lounge access"
Contra: "Food was even better in Turkish Airlines before."
Pro: "The service and entertainment!"
Pro: "On Time, spacious, clean and well taken care of, very friendly and helpful crew. Entertainment is also excellent."
Pro: "The service was great and all staff were friendly."
Pro: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "Seats are spaced further apart than many other carriers"
Contra: "There's always a problem with people trying to sit in different (e.g., my) seats, and people get up and try to exit the plane before it has even taxied off the runway."
Pro: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pro: "They offered refreshments and sandwiches for such a short flight"
Contra: "did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"
Pro: "Comfort, good quality meal, on time"
Pro: "Flight was great, booking agents, flight attendants all superb."
Contra: "Airport in Istanbul could use an upgrade. Poor gate directions and signs. No jetways, meaning they bus you out to the plane each time. This adds to time needed to change planes and may be inconvenient for older people who struggle with climbing stairs or carrying bags."
Pro: "Comfortable, on time, smooth boarding"
Pro: "It was okay, I mean, for a short-haul flight, nothing more is required. Except for accuracy."
Contra: "They should finally replace old ATR-72."
Contra: "For a long flight . Your entertainment SUCKS. Never again will I fly with you guys . Ever ever ever"
Pro: "The crew on board was helpful, but they can hardly make up for company’s atrocious policies."
Contra: "They made me pay $70 for my carry on luggage - the very same one that I didn’t have to check in on my way to Zurich. The company has obscure luggage policies that could easily qualify as hidden charges. I will do everything I can to avoid flying with Air Serbia in the future."
Contra: "The worst airline ever. CUSTOEMR SERVICE IS AN UNKNOWN WORD TO THEM. I WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE AGAIN AND YOU SHOULD REMOVE THEM FROM YORU PROPOSALS."
Contra: "the flight was lite more than 30 minutes. Economy class - you have to pay for the meal? Are they Low Cost Company or ? If so, just tell us like that. Prices are among the highest in the region and all you get is a glass of water and a small bag of snacks."
Pro: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Contra: "I didn't get to my AirSerbia flight."
Pro: "good service , everything good."
Pro: "My isle seat"
Contra: "Studardess were very unpleasant,2 times they passed my row,had to take out garbage by myself. Same movies were played on both flights (I had round trip)"
Pro: "Comfortable seats"
Contra: "Crew attitude , allowing oversized baggage in the craft, no food service though it's not LCC."
Contra: "5 hours delay"
Pro: "We received a voucher for food during our 4+ Hour delay before boarding on air serbia to Belgrade. Once we arrived in Belgrade, we stayed in the business suite before our flight and was provided with food and couches to relax on before our next flight. Also, on our connecting flight to athens, Aegean airlines was very professional and really wish I would have used their service instead of air serbia."
Contra: "Air serbia did not tell us why there was a 4+ hour delay to belgrade. Once we arrived in Belgrade, we had to wait 9+ hours for our connecting flight to athens when we were only supposed to have 2 hrs layover. Once we boarded the plane to athens, the workers at the airport had no clue were our luggage was and a lot of things were miscommunicated between them. They were very unprofessional and some of them were very rude. They had plenty of time to move our luggage to the next airplane, but too careless to do that. So now we have to wait a couple of days to get the rest of our luggages. We also missed our train ride in greece because of air serbia and had to pay for another train ticket and did not receive a refund"
Contra: "Flight was late and caused loss of connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pro: "Half way through the journey they wanted to charge me 40 Euros to check in my carry on because it was too big. They said they shouldn't have allowed it on the first flight."
Contra: "Half way through the journey they wanted to charge me 40 Euros to check in my carry on because it was too big. They said they shouldn't have allowed it on the first flight. Also security check was at the gate so no water was allowed or available to buy after it, so you were forced to buy on the plane if you wanted water"
Pro: "Quick and no fuss"
Contra: "No food and entertainment didn't work"
Contra: "Too hot temperature inside te aircraft. Seats uncomfortable"
Pro: "Me gustó que tienen un buen sistema de check-in, embarque y desembarque."
Contra: "El avión era un ATR-72 algo viejo, no era cómodo por dentro. Tampoco me gustó la atención de la tripulación, no pasaron por mi puesto ofreciendo el mísero vaso de agua que daban. En otras aerolíneas de este estilo por lo menos dan café."
Pro: "Departed and arrived on time despite boarding chaos."
Contra: "What was that stuff they served us to eat?"
Pro: "No complaints"
Contra: "Everything was OK"
Pro: "It was great experience clean, new plane, smilung staff, flight on time. Quick boarding although the flight was full. Much nicer than Swiss"
Contra: "Not possible for online check-in"
Contra: "Not possible for online check-in"
Pro: "I got to board first because I am wearing a cast on my leg."
Contra: "The plane was extremely hot the entire 5 hour flight and even though many people asked to make the air cooler, the flight crew did nothing. It was a 5 hour flight and only 1 water was served. It was hot and only 1 water was served. When asked for two waters because I was extremely thirsty, the flight crew looked annoyed and brought only 1 to me. I hope to never fly Air Serbia again."
Pro: "Flight was on time, nice plane with lots of leg room, flight was nice apart from near landing. Food was good with a free drink too."
Contra: "We were told to go to a desk for boarding car which we walked for some time to get too and were then told to go to the gate and they would give us a boarding card then. Much walking for no reason. They need to communicate with each other and customers more."
Pro: "Easy check in, flight was on time, crew were nice and free meal and drink."
Contra: "Check in was much slower that all other check in desks and was only 2 girls then 3 girls on check in."
Pro: "As mentioned many times, they are more professional than JAT, but still looong way to go."
Contra: "They upgraded their system, but it fails when it comes to payments. They should definitely replace turbo props with jets."
Pro: "The tiny plane was smooth in the air. Crew was nice."
Contra: "Only water and bread for the way back while we had full dinner service on the way there. chairs we older but fine."
Contra: "We boarded our flight from gate C7, which as is common in Eastern Europe, a bus gate. To enter the gate, we were completely rescreened, although we had been screened to go from Bucharest to Belgrade. We waited on the bus for 15 minutes. Only a few seats on the bus so it is a standup experience. Finally the bus started driving to the parked planes, but turned away and drove to a where you would exit the bus after arriving. They told everyone to go upstairs where they explained that there was a "technical problem" on then plane and it would be delayed an hour. They sent everyone to gate A4a, where everyone was prescreened again. We waited in a hot gate for an hour, then boarded the bus and to make a long story short, we arrived in Zagreb 1 and a quarter hours late."
Pro: "On time."
Contra: "Small and uncomfortable prop plane. Boarded from rear only."
Pro: "The flight attendants were courteous and advised passengers they can move around once boarding completed."
Contra: "The flight was operated by a avery small plane, so we were advised to leave the carryons outside to be put in the hold. Once on the plane, I thought my bag would fit in the overhead bin. Also, was annoyed that flight attendants would approach you speaking Serbian, which I don't."
Pro: "The food was good as always, the crew is nice."
Contra: "It's not really comfortable, but I guess that's because of the plane model and the economy class, so not much to do there. Boarding was delayed, and they put too many people on the bus taking you from the gate to the plane. The entertainment system should have more content."
Pro: "Very friendly staff"
Pro: "The seat, flexibility were great..and food are tasty and delicious"
Contra: "The crew was not friendly for the flight to Belgrade"
Contra: "It took 1:40min to go through the boarding process (drop luggage, get boarding pass). The actual flight is 1:20min. Total incompetence and lack of speed. This is how they worked it...They try to board multiple flights off the same counters. You stand in line for 1 hour and no movement happens- literally!?Then, since the next flight is about to be delayed - they announce for you to stampede forward, to make your flight. Then the process actually begins and 20min later and some bureaucracy on extra luggage you get your pass. Then you run through passport control and security, exhausted and frustrated (as was everyone else). Etihad should instruct Serbian Airlines in which they invested, how a plane (s) are to be boarded. After all it's over 100 years since the first commercial flight took place, its not that much of a mystery any more:)"
Pro: "On my two two hour flights, they fed us a lot, we're very attentive and very nice."
Pro: "Short flight so the lack of enterntainmet was not a problem. Clean airplane, tidy and very friendly staff. Food and drinks very fine compared to duration of the flight. Deparure on time, same with arrival."
Contra: "As I said this flight was on time, but the previous, CDG - BEG was delayed one hour."
Pro: "Flight crew are nice, reasonable service during flight"
Contra: "The flight was delayed at Rome, so the stop at Belgrade was short. Luggage did not arrive with the flight, only after two days they arrived to the destination. After two days the luggage arrived dirty and a bag of "Sephora" cosmetic company missing from one of the suitcase."
Pro: "Flight crew are nice, reasonable service during flight"
Contra: "The flight was delayed twice and while boarding was delayed an hour. This plug transfer our luggage for the flight from Belgrade to Tel Aviv."
Pro: "traveler's assistance check in on time smooth flying. nice snacks"
Contra: "online check in is not available if starting out of Stuttgart !!!?"
Pro: "Flight Crew and Ground service behavior during the problem with the plane damage."
Contra: "Poor capacity building of the lower service people at the ground level at Abu Dhabi airport. They should have proper information for all passenger's issues."
Pro: "Nearly all, but inadequate organisation a fuel leaking problem at AbuDabi airport on 10/02/2016."
Contra: "Passengers were kept 3 hours in the plane during the impairment."
Pro: "All good."
Contra: "They woke me up for a meal. My bad to forget earplugs or ask for some."
Pro: "Service was very good"
Pro: "Baggage allowance"
Contra: "Too few movie choices."
Pro: "New interiors and uniforms for stuff , even the stuff is super smiley"
Contra: "Nothing , everything was just wright"
Pro: "Service was great on both legs of the trip"
Contra: "Not on time departing from Rome"
Pro: "Friendly staff both at the airport and on the plane. Clean airplanes, professionalism and excellent service. Not to mention, arrived 1 hour early on both legs. Excellent experience and I will be flying with Air Serbia again."
Contra: "Nothing bad to say about it."
Contra: "The seats more comfortable."
Pro: "Flight was on time."
Contra: "Check in line was very long and boarding was very unorganized."
Contra: "4 hours late - no communication Rude flight attendants"
Pro: "The meals we ordered were tasty and the leather seats and leg room are fair enough"
Contra: "Boarding is sooooo slow Entertainment facilities did not exist"
Contra: "I paid £275 for my TICKET ,after 2 min I rang them for cancel my ticket they said refund only £177 Then I said ok change the ticket they said still need to pay penalty charge as well, i wasnt happy then they call me back he said we cancel your ticket and refunds £240 , I lost £35 in 10 min ."
Pro: "The flight was very uncomfortable and dirty"
Pro: "Took off on time"
Contra: "Uncomfortable seats. No free WATER! Weight limit is ridiculous for a international flight. I will never travel with Pegasus again! I will try my best to spread the word on this airline."
Contra: "I was traveling with sports equipment and tried to pay for it online. I could not find a place to buy extra lugggage for sports only normal luggage, so I had 20kg. Then I was told at the airport I had to pay 100 chf extra for my surfboard. Don’t make the website difficult to use and then charge me extra. It feels dishonest."
Contra: "Wait time, customer service"
Contra: "They stole my money"
Pro: "Friendly crew. Pretty much on time departure. Comfortable."
Contra: "The boarding process was a nightmare. The gate agents did not make an announcement. Thus, people crowded the area. The gate agents then decided who could board and who could not -- based on their seat assignment. Terrible."
Pro: "Nothing , It was veri terrible"
Contra: "The boarding pass , they opened my baggage like 3 times and start making chaos in it and ruin many things inside it , plus it always delayed in time"
Contra: "delay, onboard service"
Contra: "Discomfort, very small airplane for a 4 hours trip. Crew is angry and rude. Food is expensive and not tatsy."
Pro: "The staff was friendly, efficient and professional. The plane was clean, and the flight on time. Was my first time to fly Pegasus, but will definitely do so again."
Contra: "The boarding process was unorganized and a bit frustrating."
Contra: "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..."
Pro: "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"
Pro: "I'm actually surprised about the flight. The pilot was good and I think he was a pro. For a budget airline, Pegasus was good."
Contra: "We had only problems with the delayed luggages. The boarding was not on time but I don't think it's a big deal because we arrived almost as scheduled. No entertainment at all and comfort was not a priority but it's okay since it's a budget airline after all. But it would be better if they consider comfort of flyers even if it is a budget flight because flying is a serious thing and can cuase a lot of anxieties to begin with."
Contra: "We were delayed 7 hours without any explanation or compensation or apology."
Pro: "As long as they are reverting a cheap ticket then the service is good"
Pro: "An early landing made my onward journey so much easier."
Pro: "Reasonable drink choices"
Contra: "Where is ayran?!"
Pro: "They changed my online check in into front window seats for free Was in time"
Contra: "It's low cost, it arrived in time. It's ok :)"
Pro: "Desk personnel who checked us in spoke Not One Single Word to us in any language. We were kept standing in line to board even though the plane was late."
Contra: "The plane wasn't cleaned and empty bottle, used tissues and remainders of the meal served on previous flight were on our seats. People were not helped to stow carry ons and many should have been requested to check large carryon bags. They were out of beer even though beverages had just been loaded. Attendants could not clearly communicate the price of a beverage."
Pro: "The seats are comfortable and there was enough place in the overhead bins"
Contra: "The airport in Istanbul does not offer WiFi - which is unbelievable for 2017...."
Pro: "The seats were not too tight and the food is not extensively expensive"
Contra: "No Internet access at Istanbul airport which isahugh issue nowadays!"
Pro: "Efficient and polite crew, nice flight, nice take off and landing."
Contra: "Delayed for 30 minutes."
Pro: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"
Contra: "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."
Contra: "This experience was absolutely horrible for my wife and myself both. We understood that being among the more "budget friendly" airlines, we would have to sacrifice some comfort. But this airline is beyond atrocious to say the least. There is no terminal exit, but rather we had to walk down steps from the plane, walk in the rain to a stand-up bus, and ride it to the airport. How on earth are you supposed to make close connecting flights with those conditions? We barely made it only because they let us skip the line for security. Save yourself the misery; dig deeper in your pocket for a better airline."
Pro: "No problems at all, everything was OK and most important, on time"
Contra: "The way of talking to the passengers."
Contra: "Late in time"
Pro: "generally the boarding and crew were acceptable."
Contra: "A week before my flight, the flight changed and I was emailed. It had me arriving in Istanbul 2 hours later. They essentially changed my flight to another flight. And then Pegasus Plus frequent flyer never recognizes my PNR number when I try to get credit for my flights. I have flown 6 segments with them and none of the flights are recognized. When I try to do live chat, it only accept Turkish language. I am very disappointed in this airline's pre and post flight services."
Contra: "It's the worst airline ever, delays (NO EXCUSES), non-comfortable seats, very bad customer experience..."
Pro: "Seating is comfortable enough with sufficient leg space."
Contra: "As there is no entertainment nor food served on board the grade has to be the minimum score. Precisely that there is no entertainment system."
Contra: "the air conditioner didnt work in the plane and they took very high rate for extra bag of 180 Euro!"
Pro: "Nothing in particular"
Contra: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Contra: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Contra: "There was no entertainment and no food"
Contra: "The flight was canceled only after checking in and going through immigration. I am stuck in limbo due to visa expired and can not go back into Dubai. Had to remain inside departure terminal by gate for 18 hours. Ended up rebooking flight with another airline and delaying my arrival into Turkey by two days."
Pro: "I was lucky enough to have the seat next to me free, so I was comfortable during the flight itself"
Contra: "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)."
Contra: "The problems began around 2 am on 12-July at the Dubai airport. Our flight, originally scheduled for 4:20 am, was delayed until 6am. I attempted to inquire with the Pegasus staff about the flight delay, and what this would mean for my connection, but no staff were even available at the airport (all check-in activities etc were handled by airport staff). Even after the flight got delayed again until 7am, there were no Pegasus staff available to speak with. The Dubai airport staff assured me that someone was on their way to speak with the passengers, and that since our connecting flights were also on Pegasus, they would be sure to hold the flights for us. We were told that we would definitely make our connections. When we asked about the reason for the delay and to speak with a Pegasus staff member, we were told by airport staff that the Pegasus team had been called repeatedly and nobody was picking up the phone. There was a supervisor that was somewhere in the airport, and they had been told that she would be coming to the information desk to speak with passengers, but I waited for 2 hours for her and she never showed up. We were given no information on why the flight was delayed and what the plan was for our connections. Even at the gate there was not a single Pegasus staff member to assist us. We finally arrived in Istanbul and were directed to the transfer desk, where the Pegasus staff were rude, physically forceful (pushing and shoving), and could not communicate in English. The entire situation was extremely upsetting. Nobody was apologizing for the misinformation or lack of accountability. Nobody simply said, "I'm sorry." I was continuously shouted at in Turkish, I was pushed by Pegasus staff. I was simply trying to find out if my flight had left and if I could be rebooked on another flight. They were insistent that there was one flight a day and they could not book me on an alternative airline. For me, this meant that I missed an important meeting in Germany that afternoon, and that I had to forfeit money that I had put down for a hotel in Hamburg (Euros 124). They told everyone that the flights had left and that we should go upstairs to the hotel desk. However, even to do this, I was forced to purchase a visa (USD 30) to go through passport control. Pegagus has not reimbursed me for these expenses, despite emails, speaking to a supervisor at the Istanbul airport, and filing a complaint in the portal online. Again, at the hotel transfer desk, the staff was rude and unhelpful. We were treated like animals to be herded, and not like humans. Needless to say, I will never be flying with Pegasus again, and I will not be recommending it to anyone. The treatment of paying customers was horrible, and the service was terrible."
