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.
Flight was 20minutes delayed with no official announcements as such but not a huge deal. Smooth experience otherwise.
Cheaper price compare to Emirates and Qatar.
I was not a fan of this airline, we took off late the crew was bossy and the plane smelled.
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."
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: "Onboard service was good -breakfast served was good."
Contra: "The seats are somewhat uncomfortable but OK for only a 1 h and 40 min flight"
Pro: "the onboard entertainment system is poor: you don't have your personal screen, and the only programmes available are the saftey video and airline's ads. The flight was delayed for 20 minutes at the start however it arrived on time. So that was not really an issue."
Contra: "The crew are professioanl and the service is OK although you need to ask for your tea/coffee. The food isn't amazing but it meets my expectation about the short flight cuisine."
Contra: "Everything was good."
Contra: "Dismal customer service"
Pro: "The plane :)"
Contra: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Pro: "Better than all others at this time."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
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."
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!!!!"
Pro: "liked the staff, and the plane was nice"
Contra: "boarding was a little chaotic, and the plane was so hot. was sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes and it was unbearably hot!"
Pro: "The food and beverage selection, as well as the service in business class was excellent. Initially I dreaded the long layover of 8 hours. But I found the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge. It was so spectacular that I didn't want to leave it. I found a small movie theatre equipped with leather oversized recliners and slept. I was told that the 2 story lounge is 6000 square meters."
Contra: "The business class seating is old and not as comfortable as the newer herring bone configurations. Privacy could be improved."
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: "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: "The service and entertainment!"
Pro: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Pro: "One of the best flight experiences I have had in a long time."
Pro: "I loved that they give out the little packs of socks, slippers, ear buds, eye cover, and toothbrush with toothpaste. Also, the movie and TV show selection is excellent! It definitely kept me entertained for the entire 10 hour flight!"
Contra: "By the time the food and beverage cart got to my section of the plane, they were out of several items. It was a little disappointing. But the options that remained were still sufficient."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pro: "Comfort, good quality meal, on time"
Pro: "Is the number six flight with Turkish Airlines and what an amazing company. Great food, great staff, just an overall quality company."
Pro: "In flight entertainment system offered a wide selection of movies and games, as well as flight info. Good frequency of"
Contra: "Not much leg room in the seats. Bad gate setup, multiple security checks before boarding and having to go in a bus to the actual plane. This might be the airports fault more than the flight."
Pro: "Komforlu ve nezih bir ucus icin tesekkurler her sey o kadar guzelki ozellikle murettebat cok nazikti"
Contra: "Hic bir sey"
Pro: "The flight was quick and the food was good."
Contra: "They cancelled my original flight, which originally left at 7AM, and put me on a flight 12 hours later at 7PM to Skopje. So I had to wait in Istanbul for 14+ hours. They provided me with a hotel and free lunch, which was nice but it was a complete hassle to obtain these, and I was walking all around the airport, in and out of security, and waiting at hotel services for 4+ hours until I finally left for the airport. Turkish really needs to get its act together if it says that it is the best airline in the region."
Pro: "Professionalism of crew, efficiency of TA!"
Contra: "Lack of foot space in economy; hardly bearable when the person in the seat in front of you leans back and the tray is in your lap and the screen is hard to see!"
Contra: "Seats are old and worn. Pitch is Ok. BEG is bad, at least if you connect there to the JFK flight. You have to go to different desks to verify passport (!) and pass additional security control where they don't let you carry in any tax free purchases you make at your originating airport although you never leave the transit area. Boarding is chaotic with no staging."
Pro: "On time departure, and slightly early arrival. Everything ran smoothly. And seat spacing is quite generous!"
Contra: "It took a while to complete boarding, mostly because of carry-on luggage, but it did not delay departure."
Pro: "The flight experience was smooth!"
Contra: "A little snafu at the gate with everyone's carry on luggage could have been avoided with better communication."
Pro: "Crew was amaizing, yes, pilot was excelent, smooth landing and taking off. Great gift for kids to play onboard."
Contra: "Online adding kids meal, no meal appropriate for kids . No usb charging for phones and tablets, only US charger. More movies and games for kids and adults. It is very little."
Pro: "The actual takeoff and landing with this airline is usually smooth"
Contra: "Airline is always late with no layover time making journeys stressful. The food and drink is only available for pay. There is no entertainment. There is a small snack which has been expired cookies on all flights I’ve experienced, and the staff seems reluctant to provide it. Boarding involved making everyone wait standing up for more than twenty five minutes corralled into as corner."
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"
Contra: "Check in was slow but not crowded and they lost my and other 20 passengers’ suitcases! No information was given about why and we still don’t have any information. AirSerbia does not respond do emails or calls."
Pro: "Food was fantastic. Crew was attentive and polite."
Pro: "Crew was good, short flight on an older aircraft, everything was fine"
Contra: "Bags got left in Belgrade transferring from Helsinki despite this flight being delayed 30 mins, unsure how that happens..."
Contra: "This flight is apparently consistently late"
Contra: "My bag making it to my destination not broken."
Contra: "My booking reference code was delivered too late so I missed the check-in time and therefore missed the flight"
Contra: "Not enough time between the connecting flights. The terminals were too far apart, and the local airport transportation took too long to get me to a connection flight terminal."
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."
Contra: "No entertainment equipment, video or audio."
Pro: "good service , everything good."
Pro: "On time flights both directions"
Contra: "Excessive baggage charges (40-60 euro each way per bag), so buy the ticket that includes the baggage"
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"
Pro: "Timeliness, cleanliness and comfort."
Contra: "Inflight duty free closed too early."
Pro: "Comfortable aircraft"
Contra: "Same moves for months.no new choices Small sandwich for lunch, not near Seet in front of me broken an d. In my nees"
Pro: "Title says it all"
Contra: "Title says it all"
Pro: "Crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Contra: "the Air Serbia magazine was the only entertainment available."
Pro: "No complaints"
Contra: "Everything was OK"
Pro: "I like it was fun"
Contra: "I liked everything"
Pro: "It was great experience clean, new plane, smilung staff, flight on time. Quick boarding although the flight was full. Much nicer than Swiss"
Pro: "Nothing. Rude staff. Horrible food and service."
Pro: "I requested a special meal. It wasn't delivered. I had called Air Serbia days before my travel to confirm that, and the lady said it was. Unfortunatley, there is no way for me to lookbthat information online. Even the gate agent wasn't able to look that informationmout, and told me it will be there. I simply had to go with 'belief' that my special meal would be there. They did not have any other options . The food they served was so unpalatable that I threw up. I threw up in a plastic bag, as opposed to a barf bag. I didnt have time to get it out from the seat pocket. When I called the flight attendant for assistsnce, she was so rude in pointing that I should have used the barf bag and not a plastic bag. Very unempathetic. They did not check on me after that. The flight was so hot, and too crammed. Old plane. The entertainment was unentertaining. I would never fly this airline again."
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: "Quick flight"
Contra: "Time it took to board and leave"
Pro: "Free food + drink, smart uniforms, on-time departure and seat headrests with winglets to support your neck."
Contra: "The fact that I tried for nearly a week to CANCEL the flight. Yet was given no help, after sending email after email, making sure that I covered whatever was possible on my side. And of course, no response. Ended up forced to simply not attend the flight. Thanks a lot for a GREAT customer support, AirSerbia... (being cynical here, just making sure I do what I can so you get this)"
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."
Pro: "On time."
Contra: "Small and uncomfortable prop plane. Boarded from rear only."
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: "Attentive crew, decent business class amenities, food was hit and miss. The selection of domestic wines and spirits was okay."
Contra: "The incoming flight was delayed until next day, with no effort on behalf of Air Serbia to communicate this. No space left for reproach, no effort of any kind of compensation. Once on board, the staff were great and did their best to accommodate this business traveller. The return flight was standard on terms of food and service, nothing special, nothing bad. The checking was another story, with lots of confusion and missed opportunities to make a difference. Mixed bag, overall."
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: "Good food, skillful pilot"
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: "It was a good flight over all, the service was non-stop"
Contra: "At JFK our pre booked seats were changed , and I had them changed back, there was some BS excuse for that I was questioning a flight attendant as to why the plum brandy wasn't on the menu,(national drink) I was told to fly first class the next time The flight back from Belgrade to JFK. I was told by the same flight attendant (Ana) that I was holding up the line, I was trying to put the carry on luggage over the seats. There was a 40 min delay in landing, the bathrooms were locked, once again the same flight attendant made a big deal of this, that I have to make it quick. The signs for the 1st class , bathroom should not be visible from the economy class seats because it confuses passengers, in the economy class, some of the passengers were sent back and not allowed to use the bathroom."
Pro: "Baggage allowance"
Contra: "Too few movie choices."
Pro: "Good job"
excellent all round and check in luggage included
I liked that we could pre order and pay for meals. Crew was super efficient and got everything exactly right and of course we didn’t even have to ask it was all super seamless I wish other airlines would do this.
Contra: "Staff are not friendly, airplane was old and seats were very uncomfortable"
Pro: "Great boarding , on time! Friendly helpful staff . Just really good experience"
Pro: "The crews are friendly and smiling. Seat are comfortable"
Contra: "If they allow the family with young children to board first will be excellent"
Pro: "The on-board crew were friendly and professional. The in flight entertainment options were great. And the flight was mostly on time and easy."
Contra: "We had significant issues getting our one boarding pass from the computers and then the workers in the airport. We purchased both tickets together and the one had no issues. However, we got nonchalantly passed off from one employee to another without having anyone seem really concerned for us."
Pro: "Seats were comfortable, crew courteous"
Contra: "Good value for money"
Pro: "Was the Crew very rude"
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"
Pro: "The crew is good But the seats not comfortable .. it's like minibus .. no range of movement .."
Contra: "Toilet .. seats .. windows.. air conditioning must be stronger .."
Pro: "The price"
Contra: "Seats are impossibly close. Men's knees hit the back of the seat in front of them. Sardines accurately describes seating on this airline. No, and I mean No, room to move."
Pro: "Really easy experience - friendly, organized, on time and a great price!"
Contra: "Free food and alcoholic beverages"
Contra: "If it was on time. Over an hour late."
Pro: "Easy; fair prices; budget rates"
Contra: "no entertainment (N/A)"
Pro: "Free cup of ice."
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."
Pro: "The price. It was cheap this time around."
Contra: "The staff isn't exactly friendly and the food is horrible. Do not buy food on the plane. Bottled and canned items are ok to buy, do not trust the rest."
Contra: "seats are not comfortable at all"
Contra: "One hour flight from Dalaman to Istambul. that leaves with two and a half hours of delay. We arrived late to Istanbul. We ate dinner after hours and tired of Pegasus waiting. Without any explanation from anyone in the company. Never again will I fly with Pegasus."
Pro: "The seats and the food we prepaid were quite good. The staff at the airport were very kind."
Contra: "The flight was delayed more than 1 hour. The gate lounge didn’t had enough chairs for all the passengers. They had any entertainment on board and they make you turn off your mobile phone for take off and landing even if you have airplane mode."
Contra: "They stole my money"
Pro: "The worst airport ever"
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"
Pro: "The price"
Contra: "No one smiles or tries to help, the Baggage weighing is farcical as people get on in Turkey with three hand luggage’s. Flight was late, no explanation and no apology. Pre flight safety and general announcements are made as fast as possible. Unintelligible"
Contra: "first of all the prices of drinks are very high and they rip you off since there is no option. but with that i can live. what i cant live with they try to save on gas and till you dont yell they dont turn on the AC and then they try again to lower it and again you have to complain. i hope to never fly with them again and when you say something you get a sour face"
Contra: "Crew members are very rude"
Contra: "Late boarding for unknown reason."
Contra: "baggage allowance is 20kg and no free drinks and food and very expensive if you want to buy.. ie.. 35 euro for a sandwich and cola"
Contra: "We were delayed 7 hours without any explanation or compensation or apology."
Contra: "Plane was hot, ground staff were rude, airport outside of Istanbul is one of the worst I've ever seen."

Contra: "the flight was delayed without telling us why we were late from our next flight"
Pro: "Reasonable drink choices"
Contra: "Where is ayran?!"
Contra: "The boarding staff not helpful at all for bags and for the seats. The crew was very bad talking she was very bad. The meals were not as expected.. Very poor trip. It is different at all of the going trip!"
Pro: "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"
Pro: "The crew at the airport was incompetant. The service was appalling. I had to wait for over 30 minutes for bag drop off . I was very dissapointed. Also boarding was quite late and pushy"
Contra: "Problem communicating with counter crew who spoke none to little of English and probably because of me complainig about that they might have decided not to send one of my baggages. I finally retrieved it in different airport in three days."
Pro: "quick boarding at Sabiha Airport. At the airport, the free Wi-Fi connection didn't worked."
Contra: "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."
Pro: "Comfortable seats and very clean."
Pro: "it's fine. It gets you from point A to point B."
Contra: "It's almost outrageous that they don't give water."
Contra: "Terrible landing for last 15-20 min, pilot never spoke to reassure passengers whether or not it was okay."
Pro: "Nothing in particular"
Contra: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Pro: "Although the previous flight was late, the boarding has waited for us to come."
Contra: "The staff's English was not understandable at all even for a native speaker."
Pro: "Plane is ok, clean, good condition"
Contra: "Almost no service. Cheak in took 2 hours!"
Contra: "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."
