I traveled lot with this airline and I have good experience. More than 20 flights give me right to conclude that this is one of the best airlines in the world. Good meals on board.

I was disappointed with this flight, simply because of the leg room. I am only 5' 2" and I found it a tight squeeze! This was particularily the leg to Istanbul! Its really my only complaint as the food was ok, the entertainment ok and the staff were lovely. There seemed to be more leg-room onfrom Isttanbul to antalya.

They are just horrible, from poor service, to rude stewards and bad prices. I recommend people to avoid them at all costs.

Immediately I boarded this flight I was disappointed. The plane was an Airbus 321-200 but configured poorly in Business class. The seats were the same poor quality as in economy with the only difference being that the middle seat was kept free and could be used as a table/tray. Rubbish legroom and really uncomfortable standard seat. There was no personalized...

Comfort, leg room, food and drinks included, plus the added bonus of touch screen computers with games, movies and music. Definitely a plus when you are travelling with children. Staff were very friendly and polite.

Turkish Airlines have been rated airline of the year in Europe for the last 5 years, and I have been flying with them up to several times a month, these last two years. They are however clearly losing their edge. The continuing downward spiral in the Turkish economy (as a result of unfortunate national government policies) is starting to make...

Poor service in general. Seat selection was not available for outbound flight; needed to call customer service for booking seats in advance, special meal selection was not available online. The online checking was not working for outbound flight, when called customer service- the advisor confirmed that you need to do online check in minimum (not within) 24 hours prior to...

Let me start with most important thing for tall people - plenty of legroom on all the flights. You are not forced in semi-embryonic position for the duration of your flight - you have an opportunity to feel comfortable even without using seat recline function. In-flight entertainment system keeps you busy for the whole flight duration with nice selection of...

This airline gives great value for in flight service. Their check in procedures are a bit erratic but the staff can be a bit more welcoming for travellers who are not very tech friendly. A welcoming smile would go a long way in relaxing nervous travellers. Although we printed our boarding passes we had to go through the whole process...
