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.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Istanbul

  • Have your travel ID and boarding pass within easy reach. They'll be the first things you'll be instructed to produce by airport security staff.
  • You'll have to pause the tunes for a short while. Earphones and headphones need to be taken off and put in a tub for X-raying. The same goes for items such as keys and coins.
  • Electronics such as laptops, cameras and phones will need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all creams, gels and liquids in a separate bin for inspection. Make sure they're all stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Construction boots and other cumbersome shoes are typically X-rayed by security personnel. It might be wise to wear lightweight sneakers instead.
  • Pack any multi-tools or other pointy items inside your checked luggage. Security won't allow these in carry-on baggage.
