Very rude and cheating staff. They never accept their mistakes and faults. No matter in Istanbul or any other cities around the world like Tehran, the staff are the same.

It was a great experiment and enjoyed a lot. Very comfortable business class with all their best services. It was a true value of money. Their ground staff, flight crew are highly energetic and cooperative. Great service they offered. Food was also awesome.

When I have the choice, I am flying with Turkish airlines. Food is generally of better quality than other companies. For me definitively in the discussion with Lufthansa for the best European company.

Traveled from Dubai to Bilbao with a 2 hours stopover in Istanbul. Perfect check in, both flights took off on time. Nice and friendly staff. My both flights were at early time, so I had breakfast, they were nothing special but enough for 2 five hours flights. The seats were bit small. Both flights landed on time

I'm travelling a lot around the world with many airlines and I must say that, in many years, Turkish Airline is offering one of the best service, even if compared with the most famous ones, like Emirates. The best in Europe.
