First time I have ever flown Turkish Airlines and they were fantastic. We had food and drink all at no extra cost the staff were terriffic nothing was too much trouble Fantastic Experience
I found women hair in my food
Could not upgrade my flight
Courteous, friendly staff; good variety of entertainment; real cutlery.
Every thing good
I need to make a formal complain
Annoyed that the PAID FOR meal on Pegasus flight did not have any drink (at least water) included, they offer you to buy a drink! Also gone off salad in the meal.
The trip on the whole was a pleasant one. In fact I was impressed with the Turkish Airline.
Good service and lovely food on board
I don't understand why there is such a long transit layover in Istanbul when Edinburgh is a large hub of Turkish Airlines
It was a perfect flight
delays on 3 out of the 4 flights I took with Turkish Airlines- was not happy about this.
