Maximum experience.

The attendants could have come around a little more frequently. The second meal should have been served a little earlier.

The flight was 11 hours late. I expect compnensation

Aug 10, 2018

Not happy with lot luggage at the end.

Aug 3, 2018

Lost bag on connecting flight made a very stressful connection and customs process. Delayed arrival flight and no luggage. What started well, ended as a long and stressful ordeal.

Jul 16, 2018

Our first flight in United. Could not be happier. Best business cubicles with flat beds.

Jul 13, 2018

As I often do, I took an extra suitcase and was -- as always -willing to pay the hundred dollar fee for this, but I was shocked to see that I was ordered to pay an extra 220 dollars this time, once for United and once for Turkish Airlines, despite the fact that you are both in the same alliance and I was not expected to pay double before. In the future this will lead me to look into different alternatives for my annual trips between the US and Turkey.

Really great flight attendants. Very friendly and efficient.
