“Turkish Airlines is the only European carrier in the top 10 Airlines worldwide in 2016!”
Review of Turkish Airlines


Reviewed 30 August 2017

Hi. I have used this carrier many times because of work and they are consistently good. The plane from Istanbul to Beirut is spacious being a wide, 2 isle, 9 or 10 seat across, large airplane! The food is good for airline food and the service excellent. Each seat has a television with lots of choice ranging from recent movies, series, tv shows and podcasts to suit every taste! Departure time and arrival time were spot on. Service support is excellent too if you need it. Istanbul airport is busy, a bit expensive but comfortable. The TK website is a bit finicky but very complete and allows you to print out your boarding cards, etc., before travel and to change booking details if needed. TK is consistently rated very highly, e.g., one of the top 10 world airlines in 2016! Excellent experience and only wished the 2 hour flight was longer!

The flight was pretty comfortable , check in and boarding was smooth, the entertainment on flight is quite good, but can definitely improve on their food , also a very funny things happened when I was boarding the flight at JFK , the airline staff asked me since you are Indian why aren't you flying Air India, to which I replied that the timing of the flight was convenient to me , and also that he should be happy Indians are giving his Turkish airline some business..

Have used this carrier before because of work and they are consistently good. The plane from Dublin to Istanbul is usually full and a little cramped - plane too small for this long haul flight! The food is good for airline food and the service excellent. Each seat has a television with lots of choice ranging from movies, series, tv and podcasts! Departure time and arrival time were spot on. Service support is excellent too if you need it. The TK website is a bit finicky but very complete and allows you to print out your boarding cards, etc. TK is consistently rated very highly, e.g., one of the top 10 world airlines in 2016. With a bigger plane for this long haul route, I would have given it a 5-star rating!

Really good service, staff was nice, and the food was good. Even for short flights they give food. The only thing that I didn´t like it was the stop in Panama, so the flight became one of the longest that I´ve ever took.
