Flight Review

Feb 24, 2020

Turkish Airlines usually assigns me a seat next to an empty seat for my overnight flights, which is very practical, because I can stretch out and sleep comfortably.

Feb 20, 2020

Got a row to myself on this flight, which was nice

Feb 18, 2020

Everything was fine. No frills but no problems.

Feb 18, 2020

I had been wanting to try Turkish Airlines and when my previous flight to Miami got cancelled I had no other choice.... EXCEPTIONAL!!!!

Feb 15, 2020

The attendants were a bit too curt. I had to go to the bathroom but my food tray wasn't picked up. So I nicely asked if she could dispose of my tray so I could use the restroom. Reluctantly she took it, but She made sure I knew she had to walk all the way to the back of the plane, and the inconvenience it would cause her. I offered to take it back for her, she scowled.

Feb 14, 2020

1st flight with Turkish and it won't be the last. Only downside is that whilst booking this flight I wanted to join miles&smiles, but there must have been a problem with the site even though I tried many times.

Jan 19, 2020

he food offered on Turkish Airlines is always the best! I declined the standard breakfast because I don't eat meat and the stewardess volunterily offered me a veggie alternative. I was so surprised!!

Jan 16, 2020

enforce the rules about Carryon luggage. 1/2 the people on the plane pushed 2,3 pieces bigger than the one I checked. It jammed up everything. The rules are written right by the jetway and eveyone (except me) ignores them.

Jan 16, 2020

Food quality to improve. Check-in baggage considerations within overall allowance limit.

Jan 13, 2020

I was very pleased with my experience. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again.

Jan 7, 2020

Great airline. Very helpful flight crew. Great food. I will definitely use Turkish Air in the future.

Jan 4, 2020

I enjoy Turkish Air.

  • You'll have to pause the tunes for a short while. Earphones must be removed and put in a tub to be X-rayed. The same goes for items such as belts and heavy jackets.
  • Laptops and other electronic devices must be placed in a bin to be X-rayed.
  • When it comes to traveling with gels or liquids, each passenger is allowed a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to transport containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Give some thought to the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they're a piece of cake to take off for the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • Stash any pocketknives or other dangerous items inside your checked luggage. Security personnel don't allow these aboard the aircraft.
