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.
I got confused about flight time and day missed my flight and rescheduled it for another day they charged me again $260. Even I tried to call the airline 4 hours before nobody answered me . I don’t have time now to fight this case but I think it’s not fair…
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."
Contra: "Just to improve on the services and hospitality but there are really good"
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!"
Contra: "Foot rests in economy - better ventilation options airflow"
Contra: "I was in economy. But the legroom was very poor. The next leg of my trip was also in economy, but was much more comfortable with seats further apart and more room under seats. So, you're taking a chance."
Pro: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"
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"
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."
Pro: "The food was ok."
Contra: "I lost my suitcase or had it stolen!"
Pro: "Friendly crew Good food Clean plane"
Contra: "The boarding process was odd. The gate agent herded us all toward a set of doors but didn't open them for about 5 min."
Contra: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
Pro: "wonderful staff."
Contra: "there was a delay we were not told about, we left an hour late, but we're not told anything, this is problematic as you pass through a second round of security to sit by the gate and can't even go to the rest room with out repeating the check. the landing was very rough but no ones falt"
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: "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: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Contra: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."
Pro: "Food served two times and amazing guys helped us during flight. They're very respectful not like united airlines beat the guy."
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."
Pro: "I liked the entertainment- plenty of things to watch and listen to. Food was good. I also enjoyed the service, hot towels and friendliness of staff. Overall, it was a great experience!"
Contra: "Sitting next to many kids who were very noisy and messy. They completely trashed the bathrooms which did not make it fun for me to use after them. This is just what I did not like- I understand this is no fault of the airlines or their staff. I am just more aware that several Turkish families may fly back and forth with their children and as a passenger, you may be seated close to them on the plane- just a thought."
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"
Contra: "It didn't happen and I wasn't notified"
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: "Comfort, service, entertaiment features and food."
Pro: "The provide very good service."
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."
Contra: "The staff at Istanbul offices are mostly very rude and disrespectful. They don't care much about the customers and gave me and others a hard time. Racism also came out strongly and I wish they would assess situations before jumping into conclusions."
Pro: "Service with a smile and very professional. Love the quality of food and entertainment on board."
Contra: "Last minute changes of aircraft that suddenly make what one thought to be an aisle seat a middle seat! Very annoying."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
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.
Pro: "The flight from Istanbul to Prague was fairly basic but everything worked well and was comfortable. The flight was on time. The bags were delivered quickly. There were no problems on the flight as it was relatively quiet. Overall, no complaints."
Contra: "The boarding in Istanbul was via bus, which is not only uncomfortable but impossible to socially distance on. In Prague we deplaned via a jetway. In Istanbul the gate control person was overly vigilant in checking documents. It was very disturbing :("
Pro: "Great boarding , on time! Friendly helpful staff . Just really good experience"
Pro: "Nothing no drinks, food entertainment nothing"
Contra: "No services and not polite"
Contra: "It’s stupid Airlines. He give me brooding pass and make security check everything at final he didn’t make me fly to London because they sey u need transit visa. Why not they inform early so I can get online visa. And airlines don’t help anything finally i buy new tkt by myself ....."
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: "Customer service is awful I will never fly Pegasus again"
Contra: "They flew me from Madrid to Istanbul with a replacement passport knowing my final destination. Was Bahrain but would not let me board the plane in Istanbul. Now I’m stuck here with no money, credit card, or flight and I’m completely screwed because of Pegasus"
Contra: "The boarding Schdule"
Contra: "If it was on time. Over an hour late."
Contra: "The set it was so bad"
Pro: "Nice and fast plane ride."
Pro: "They delivered me my order sanwhich and flight was on time"
Contra: "The seats doesn’t have a jacket hanging hook.. so I had to hold my suit jacket all the way . And the seats didn’t have proper head rest so couldn’t sleep as well on the plane but the seat was not congested and was comfortable if day flight"
Contra: "No tv screens. Have to lay for food. Seats dont recline"
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."
Pro: "Easy smooth boarding. Peaceful flight."
Contra: "But confusing arrangement of ‘international ‘ and ‘domestic buses at the airport"
Contra: "1 hour + Late departure both from Copenhagen and from the connection in Instanbul"
Pro: "The tickets were relatively inexpensive."
Contra: "However, for comparably-priced flights within the United States, we would have been given a snack and two beverage services on a four hour flight. This was international (turkey to spain) and we weren't given anything. We couldn't even get water without paying for it. Definitely one of the worst flights I've ever taken."
Contra: "Typical Pegasus. One of the worst airlines of the world. I typicall try to avoid Pegasus, but sometimes I dont have other choice."
Pro: "Cheap ticket"
Contra: "Worst airline ever, no water or juice even when one of the passengers had diabetes and needed sugar."
Pro: "Ontime departure and arrival. Friendly crew. Comfortable."
Contra: "Not the fault of the airline but I travel a lot and I've never seen so many rude passengers."
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: "Easy flight and friendly staff."
Contra: "Space for the leg"
Contra: "delay, onboard service"
Pro: "I like to travel always travel with KAKA"
Pro: "From clealininess of the planes to the professional and sincere approach of the cabin crew, Pegasus is by far the best budget airline I have ever flown in the world. Their in flight menu prices are much affordable compared to most European airports (water is cheaper on the flight, compared to Berlin airport for example) For these prices, and this quality, they are uncompeted. I really hope they can maintain these cheap prices all the time."
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: "good crew."
Contra: "very not comfortable chairs"
Pro: "You get what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less."
Contra: "Almost on every other airline you can check using the self-check-in computers at the airport; on Pegasus you can't, which caused unnecessary queues at the check-in desks (both there and back)."
Pro: "Everything was on time, crew was nice, a lot of empty seats"
Contra: "Noisy children..."
Contra: "Every service bad"
Pro: "The aircraft chair are comfortable"
Contra: "Check in desk refuse to speak with me in English or maybe she doesn't speak English"
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!"
Contra: "A failed flight canceled the flight without compensation and we lost hotel reservations in Sarajevo"
Contra: "The seats were very tight. The crew at the airport was terrible. The security staff didnt know english. The bis to the plane was crammed which was quite dangerous"
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: "No problems at all, everything was OK and most important, on time"
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."
Contra: "The plane was stuck on the ground 1.5 hours approximatly in Istanbul, and nobody had told me why?!"
Pro: "Nothing in particular"
Contra: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Pro: "smile of 1 crow chair not bad"
Contra: "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"
Contra: "The flight got delayed. One of my loggage didnt got to bucharest only at the evening of my second day."
Pro: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."
Contra: "We arrived late and had to run over the airport to not missing our next flight. Arrived from Paris and had to take flight Istambul to Antalya."
Contra: "How luggage was treated"
