Review of Turkish Airlines


Reviewed 23 September 2018

After booking a cruise from Hong Kong to Bangkok, we looked for reasonable business class fares round trip. Most of the airlines we researched were very expensive. How surprised we were to find Turkish Airlines and their VERY reasonable pricing. Also, once on the flights we were very impressed with the lie-flat beds, the service, food, and amenities. We had long layovers in Istanbul, but their incredible business class lounge helped pass the time. Flights were on time, and we were more than happy with this new-for-us airline. We will certainly fly them again.

Date of travel: February 2018

This was a long haul flight - Kuala Lumpur to Istanbul and then to Berlin. We had to change aircrafts for the Istanbul ( smaller aircraft).
Food served in both the flights was great - not often one can say this about airlines food. Overall quite comfortable though the aircrafts were not very new especially the one for the shorter haul was quite rickety.
Toilet cleanliness could be improved especially after 9 hours in the air.
The biggest issue however was with the behaviour of the flight attendants. They lacked the warmth and friendliness. Mind you they were quite efficient but their attitude and rolling of eyes gave the distinct impression that they were doing you a favour and as a result should not be disturbed beyond what they were already doing. And this was common for both the flights.

During 6 months residence in Istanbul I flew several times with Turkish and was always impressed. In business everything works well. The bed is comfortable, the food great, service is quite exceptional. Two reservations. The departure time is uncivilised (0120) which applies to all flights to the Far East presumably to accommodate those transiting from Europe. There is only toilet for 30+ business class passengers. The two at the back of the business cabin seemed to be used by economy passengers

Food and service, both excellent, although we flew on economy class. Took the flight back and it was excellent also. Leg room for us were not a problem. Check in in New York was average and from Istanbul to New York wasn't as good as in US. All passengers were revised 3 times and the ones with the US passport were revised again. Don't know if it was because something fishing was going on, but it was not well received by the passengers.

Overall my flight was good except the baby that was crying a lot during the flight, obviously there is nothing much the flight attendants could do with it, unfortunately. Overall The airlines has the nice service
