In terms of comfort and service, both legs of this journey were fine. Food & drink were quite good, if a little slow (I was in row 13, very much closer to the front of the cabin, but was still last to be served). But ... my baggage stayed in Istanbul, and was delivered by courier to my home address...

Left SFO late so missed our connection from Istanbul to Zagreb. Terrible directions given to us by TA representative. Took us over 2 hours to find out what we needed to do TA was helpful after we purchased a visa (the hotel was off the airport property) and left the secure area to get to the TA hotel desk. They...

The flight was on time both on departure and arrival or my rating would have been lower The meal offered was dreadful Inedible apart from the tiny salad and the bread roll We were given one small beer and one cup of coffee during a...

Turkish doesn't have the glamorous reputation of Emirates or Singapore but they are not far behind. Seat comfort is decent, food is quite good, cabin crew mostly make you feel like a human, in-flight entertainment is above average and all this at a decent price.

Better than many land-locked restaurants, Turkish Air offers an elegant aerial treat! While the seats themselves are rather narrow - not as comfortable as the shorter ride taken from Lisbon to Istanbul in wide leather seats, the food was excellent. Great presentation and quality, the gourmet dishes exceeded my expectations. In addition, the staff was highly attentive, offering a first...

Nicely done, Turkish Air. The wide leather seats were both comfortable and roomy. While only a 5 hour ride to Istanbul, it was made all the more enjoyable by the great service and attention by the staff.

Smooth flight, very much on time. Comfortable, relatively spacious seating. A relatively rare example of an airline still offering meals included in the price. In this case a pre-ordered special (low fat) meal was brought to my seat without without having to be reminded. Cabin crew very helpful.
