Flights Review

Dec 6, 2019

The only thing I wasn’t very happy with is the very long stretch and very long walk for my connecting flight to Malta following such a very long journey coming all the way from America and the fact that I could not locate any Turkish airline personnel to help with information about gates and connecting flights. Was quite surprised and disappointed for such sophisticated airline not to have such an important feature available. Thank you for listening.

It was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines and I had an amazing experience! I will definitely fly again as well as tell people about my great flight.

Jul 22, 2018

Swissport check in staff hassled me about baggage weight but let others go.

Jun 6, 2018

The sound quality was very bad. I watched a couple movies with subtitles only. One staff changed my headphones to no avail. They were so very busy, I did not want to distract them.

Beware of losing your phone on the business class seats. I almost lost mine!
