“Turkey is the worst place to travel to”

Written on: 07/08/2014 by Ogdenxl421 (1 review written)

Turkish airlines left 15 minutes early from Chicago. Flight was fine. They managed to hide my luggage, which has not been found. No one answers a phone, I would never fly them ever again. The airport in Turkey is one of the worst if not the worst. It is filthy, carpets are dirty, bathrooms do not have toilet paper, paper towels, have not been cleaned and the stench is horrible, male staff hide in the women's bathroom to avoid working, toilets did not flush. Most staff do not speak any… Read Full Review

“Great Experience”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by GaryfromTexas (1 review written)

I was a little hesitant to book on Turkish Airlines after reading some mixed reviews, but decided to try them because the fare was too good to pass up. WE took one flight from London to Istanbul, and another from Rome to New York after a cruise. We were pleasantly surprised with tasty hot meals and complimentary beverages including liquor, wine and beer. Very good selection of movies to watch on your own seatback flat panel display. Also a nice option of a "webcam" to get real-time views from… Read Full Review

“Unruly passengers didn't comply with the stewards.”

Written on: 15/06/2014 by xpBarnett146 (1 review written)

I have flown on this flight every year for three years. The staff is great, the food is delicious. However the airline is attracting a certain clientele that leaves their seats every 2-3 hours to pray. I pray, too but quietly in my seat especially when there is turbulence in the air. A group of at least 30 men go in one corner to pray, bobbing their heads up and down. It is very unnerving to witness this during a wear your seat belt sign alert. They would not listen to the stewards even after… Read Full Review

“Professional service, excellent experience.”

Written on: 05/06/2014 by wvCombs223 (1 review written)

Flew from Europe to the US recently and could not recommend Turkish Airlines enough. Wifi was great, excellent levels of comfort, staff were very professional and friendly at the same time, smooth flying and managed to sleep for a decent amount of the flight. Will be doing the same flight again later in the year and I will certainly book with Turkish Airlines again… Read Full Review

“Poor Customer Service”

Written on: 31/05/2014 by Maynard197 (1 review written)

Agent put someone else tag on my luggage so I arrived in Tel Aviv but my luggage didn't. They don't answer the phone I filed a complaint and they messed up again and sent the wrong luggage which I had to file another claim and on day 5 I finally received my damaged luggage. I was with a group and could not take part in some of the excursions I paid for because I didn't' have the proper attire. They have no real contact information either. I have been trying to get reimbursed for my expenses… Read Full Review

“Great International Flight Service”

Written on: 28/04/2014

I Flew From Washington Dulles to Rome Italy via Istanbul. I was very happy with all aspects of service. They provide 2 meals and continually make rounds offering coffee tea or water. They also provide you with a travel kit including eye shade, tooth brush, tooth paste, socks, blanket and pillow. On my flight individual tv's were available, with a selection of movies to choose from. Both arrival and departure flights were on time… Read Full Review

“WORST INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE EVER!!!! Had a horrifying...”

Written on: 28/04/2014 by Corinnet236 (1 review written)

WORST INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE EVER!!!! Had a horrifying experience where we were told that our luggage would be placed on a connecting flight (after we SPECIFICALLY asked if we needed to pickup our own luggage). When we arrived to our final destination, they never placed our luggage on the flight. You call customer service and you might as well be transferred to a wall. No one knows what their job is and no one can help, endless phone line transfers only to be transferred back to the original… Read Full Review

“I'll walk before I fly TA”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by PPPTTT (1 review written)

In forty-two years of flying, I've never experienced such a terrible time as I had with Turkish Airline. While returning to New York from Tel Aviv, my daughter & I had a 15 hour lay over in Istanbul. No problem right? We were told, that because of the length of the time, we would be accommadated in a hotel, ok? NO. The nasty representative, said that there was an earlier flight taking off in four hours. Alright, we'll take it. NO. I would have had to pay a "penalty". $213 each ticket!!!! I… Read Full Review

“Clocks on airport departure boards said different...”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by crCooley262 (1 review written)

Clocks on airport departure boards said different times.The clocks were due to change over night but in an airport you expect all clocks to say the same time to avoid confusion. Allow at least 2 hours to get through passport control and security checks when flying from Istanbul. We got to Gatwick but our luggage didn't. Don't know when we will get it as they didn't manage to get any ones luggage on board. Food was ok… Read Full Review

“Never flying Turkish Airlines again in my life!”

Written on: 28/02/2014 by James360 (1 review written)

LHR-IST-KTM on 9 Feb 2014 and KTM-IST-LHR on 22 Feb 2014. This will be the first and last time I will ever fly Turkish Airlines. First, there was a 4 hour delay on top of 3 hours layover. Then at the boarding gate, they tried to change our seats and separate me and my spouse. Our flight back was even worse. No flight entertainment from KTM to IST. Food was ok but no option. Then at the boarding gate for IST-LHR, the staff took picture of passports of people who looked Nepalese (I am a British… Read Full Review

“Lost baggage? We'll take our time.”

Written on: 26/02/2014 by Lovski (1 review written)

3 of us flew from LHR to SOF via IST on 15/02/14 flights 1980/1029. Flight service was good but the bags didn't arrive at IST. It was a skiing holiday so we needed suitable clothes. We didn't get our bags until Monday night (48 hours into our holiday, a day earlier than those delivered by Turkish Airlines), collected by our guest house owner in Bansko, so we wore the sames clothes that we traveled in for 3 whole days and couldn't enjoy our holiday. On the return flight we asked for an upgrade… Read Full Review

“Avoid Turkish Airline like a plague”

Written on: 06/02/2014 by robinhtd (1 review written)

The worst airline I have ever travelled in my 15 years of travelling. Okay where do I start... = The connecting flight to Kathmandu was delayed by 7 hours on the way out. We thought its okay we are on a holiday but there was no communication to say when the next confirmed flight is. Istanbul airport is being re-furbished and not many places to sit down. It is a crowded airport with very little facility. = On the way in to London from Kathmandu, our flight was delayed by 15 hours. We were… Read Full Review

“Worst experience EVER!”

Written on: 13/01/2014

I do travel a lot but what I experienced with TA was by far the worst travel experience EVER! Cancelled flights, lost baggage, crappy hotels, no serviuce whatsoever. They do not inform you properly so you have to ask for every piece of information. We had to stand in a que in front of their desk for three hours in the middle of the night to get the hotel voucher. The hotel was 45 minutes away from the airport so we only had 2 hours in the hotel, because 5 hours were lost for finding out where… Read Full Review

Horrible airline I will never fly Turkish Airline ever again in life. The flight attendants have terrible attitudes and the layover in Turkey was horrible as well.

“Chepaer fares translate to cheaper quality of service ”

Written on: 17/12/2013 by SaifulHasan1 (7 reviews written)

As there is no free lunch in the world, one can easily assume that if anything costs cheaper than expected, there's sure to be a problem with it. Turkish has been offering cheaper fares on many routes world wide but after taking two of their flights to/fro Dubai, I have had enough and I would like to get paid for taking one of their flights again. That's all I can say while keeping a stiff upper lip… Read Full Review
