“The most unfriendly staff”
Review of Turkish Airlines


Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Pilots turn on the seatbelt lights when thr flight is full and crew forces everyone to sit down so that its easier for them to serve meals. A lot of turkish folks fighting with people around them on issues like cramped seats with reclined seatbacks. I asked a crew member for a headache pill and a pen and both times the rude crew guy shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Turkish airlines is trying to compete hard with aeroflot i guess.

    • Value for money

For my excess luggage, I received an email from Turkish Airlines office confirming for an extra bag it would be 100GBP per bag.
When I told them two days in advance that I had two extra bags, the guys bluntly refused saying that this amount was incorrect and it was 25EURO per KILO.
I had to run around at the last minute trying to pack everything and ship it separately.
I was leaving the country so it was a very stressful time trying to do the house and the last of paperwork and to add the stress even this?

Turkish Airlines,this is a very poor response from you. Will consider never recommending you in the future.

This much less expensive than any other option, they feed us often, and the entertainment options were great. Nothing to complain about on this from us.

We all have had a bad experience at one or the other airlines, however very rarely does an Airlines has such good customer service, entertainment, food and beverage, legroom and friendly staff that the usual mundane and stress of air travel is more of an delight.

I am now reconsidering switching from Miles & More to Miles & Smiles
