My mom was travelling from Tehran(IKA) to Montreal (YUL) and the flight had 2 stops, one in Istanbul and one in Nice . The flight # TK873 (Tehran to Istanbul), #TK1813 (Istanbul to Nice) and #AC1933(Nice t Montreal). She was travelling with Iranian passport and she has a valid Canadian visa stamped in her passport . The Turkish airline agent issued two boarding passes in Iran for the flights from Tehran to Istanbul and Istanbul to Nice.Also, he checked my mom's visa in Iran and there was not any problem. The agent, in Istanbul, claimed that my mom needed a transit visa, however my mom got the exemption, since she has a valid Canadian visa. she doesn't need a transit visa . Then, the agent reported it as missing document and my mom missed the flight. I filled in the feedback form in their website and provided them with all necessary document ( Canadian Visa, boarding passes, ...). But they are not taking responsibility of their mistake.

will there be a problem at check in with turkish airline if the first and last name are interchanged on the ticket but spelled correctly

Its a big shame for Turkish Airlines that i forgot my paper notebook there in my seat while leaving the flight and just after that i had contacted with them but they were behaving like fools and even did not bother to reply us. After that we have sent an email to them them but no reply and they don't understand that notebook for me is so important. Really i have never ever seen this kind of pathetic airlines.

E-Ticket No 2351215379198 Reservation No 1JK9XM On July 29, 2017, Bykotabs Travels Ltd, booked a flight for Owoeye Azeez olaniyi and the Flight Ticket was issued by Cititravels July 29, 2017. The traveler was meant to travel on the 31 July, 2017 but he got late to Muritala Muhammed Int'l Airport, Ikeja, lagos and the departure date had to change from 31 July to 1 Aug, 2017 with reissued sum, which was handled by TK Airline over the counter. The reissue was done by Turkish Airline thereby, it has being collected from the Issuing Agent - CitiTravels. The Customer in Concern is seeking for the cancellation and refund of his return leg of KBP - LOS for 21 Aug, 2017. How can we resolve this please, The question is 1. Will TK Airline do the cancellation and refund? 2. Can CitiTravels the Ticket Issued Agent treat the cancellation and refund. We need your swift response on this issue, so as to treat before the return date of 21 aug, 2017.

Travelled RSA to Istanbul in July 2017. Rubbish airlne, rubbish service, drink served 3 hours into flight with disgusting food. Leg room minimal and when seat in front goes into recline position,,,claustrophobia ensues! Promises of accommodation to compensate for 11 hour stopover never materialize. Arrogant and rude. Will never ever travel Turkish Airlines again!

Hi! I have the same problem! How was your issue resolved?? Guest : I purchased a ticket for my wife and daughter through the Turkish Airlines website. I used SOFORT as the payment method. I was transferred to the payment website where I entered my bank details and the payment was successful. Now, upon directing back to the Turkish airlines website, I received no tickets or a booking reference. I got a an error screen. Money is transferred and deducted from my account but no ticket. I called the customer service, they told me no record of my booking. But, the money will be refunded withing 24 to 48 hours. Now 5 days still no money. I got an email asking for my bank info. I replied, then I got an auto response that the email is not in use !! I entered a message through their useless feedback system !! still no feedback or answer. I call they tell me wait we have no information in a very rude and condescending tone. They never acknowledge their mistake or apologise. I am considering my legal options and will start with lodging a formal complain with the consumer centre here in Germany !!

I tried to book a TA flight to Tashkent via Istanbul - so far so good till I got to enter 'passenger details' at which point i kept getting an error message. I phoned the office at Heathrow who told me they could book the flights but i would have to pay more - despite all the hassle I went through on line and having to make the call! My son eventually bought the tickets for me paying over £100 more! I made a complaint via their comments screen - response - i hadn't given them an error message number. I do have one recorded - of the many error messages, but i can't continue with the complaint as first they say the e-mail address no longer works and when I tried the new link it put me through to their comments screen. I entered my customer comment reference number - which - surprise, surprise - they do not recognise. Their customer service is abysmal! bottom of the league for the "europes favourite airline' - I don't think!

I was waiting 8 hours for my second flight from Ataturk airport, and when the gate number came i went to the gate and asked a staff if this is the gate and he checked there and said yes. I sat there but it was too late when i noticed its not boarding and ran to the "information" and he said I've missed it so they made me buy a new ticket for the next flight for 400 Euros. I heard no announcement and the boarding list tv was too far away from the gate. but they said even though I had my flight card, I cant have any of my money back.

The support team of the Turkish Airlines is one of the most qualified supporting and effecting in the region. The maximum time allowed to response is 10 days according to the domestic procedure set in the Turkish Airlines staffing rules. The ICAO rules and the domestic Federal Republic law requiere a passenger to wait for the responce first prior to the intiation any claim to the official instance (body). If a passenger is able to prove a material or moral damage without the external support, go ahead for free!

The whole airport is a complete joke. I been to many airports over the years and this place is by far the worst place. Your treated like animals off to slauter. Rude staff right across the board.

THIS AIRLINE IS HORRIBLE. they don't admit their fault when the flight is delay due to which i got to book other flight at my own. The cutomer care is rude and insane and don't help their customers.

I've purchased a ticket from Turkish Airlines on the 7th of April - but something happened their your system, and I got something else than I've bought. In Turkish Airlines’ online system, I choose two return tickets from London to Bishkek. It departed London on the 28th of May, 17:00, and arrived to Bishkek at 8:45 (29th of May). Instead, after booking, I got a ticket that departs London on the 27th of May, 11:00. This is not what I choose in the online menu, and I checked numerous times the dates and the flights. I also read it out loud as I was in a Skype call with my boyfriend. Also, I purchased the ticket for two people: myself and my boyfriend. His name is Benedek Paskuj. I did check the name for typos and everything - I wrote it down correctly. But after I purchased the ticket, I got a ticket for myself, and someone called Feg Gerreheh. This is absolutely not what I wrote - I have never ever heard this name or knew anyone with this name. Also, this is not a small typo that could have been my mistake - this is a entirely different name from my boyfriend’s name. In addition, again, I've checked numerous times the price of the tickets - it was 628,20 GBP. I filled out everything concerning my bank card, accepted everything, and clicked 'BUY'. After I've done all this, the ticket says that the cost was 711,6 GBP. Again, this is not what I've purchased! I think all of these clearly show that there was something wrong with Turkish Airlines’ webpage or system. I instantly contacted customer support, and filled out an official complaint. Next day, I got the first reply which stated that they could not do anything about this, the only thing that they could offer is to buy a ticket which is more expensive that the one I payed for (which was already more expensive than the one I wanted!), and then they will reimburse me for the previous one. Again, I called the customer support, and the tone of the woman who spoke to me was absolutely outrageous - she was extremely rude and condescending, and she treated me as I was a liar. Since then, I escalated this further with Turkish Airlines, waited 7 days for their official response that I got a few hours ago and which stated the same - no problem with the webpage, period. As I’m sure that this is not true, so now I’ll try alternative ways to raise and find a solution to my problem e.g. customer protection bodies. Anyone had any similar experiences with Turkish Airlines?

nobody answers the the 866-810-7102 number for the damaged luggage. anyone has found the solution?

I had a flight on 20.03.2017 from Roma Fiumicino International Airport to Tbilisi International Airport with one stop in Istanbul Ataturk International Airport. My flight in Roma was supposed to be at 14:30 but due to the strikes in the Airport it was cancelled until 19:00. My next flight(From Istanbul to Tbilisi) was supposed to be at 23:40 and arrival to Tbilisi at 04:55 local time. In the end, I had a flight at 07:00 on 21.03.2017 and waited at the airport the whole night more than 8 hours. I arrived in Tbilisi at 11 o’clock instead of 04:55. I needed to go to Yerevan then by taxi. I booked it for 04:55, so the taxi drived from Yerevan to Tbilisi to pick me up. As there is no Internet connection at Istanbul Ataturk International Airport I had no opportunity to call to the driver to tell that I am late. In the airport no one gave an opportunity for this. The taxi couldn’t wait for so long just because no one knew when our flight will be arranged and no one was answering to this question. At the end I arrived in Tbilisi International Airport at 11 o’clock, took another taxi, paid more than it was supposed and came to Yerevan. Now, I have to pay also for the first taxi, because anyway it did its journey being already booked by me. In the end, I paid double for the taxi from Tbilisi to Yerevan. Not in Istanbul airport, not in Tbilisi airport they gave me information about compensation. They said that it is not possible. Turkish Airlines company does a service and I am a customer, I have my rights, which need to be protected. They even do not answer the emails I am writing.

They don't answer emails or letters because they believe some customers are irrelevant. They will reconsider when customers will choose other airlines. Educated customers who are likely to spend more money might consider passing a clear message. Mike : A Great Flight and In-Flight Service but why does the Airline not answer emails or letters

I have a flight return from Kuala Lumpur to London via Istanbul departure 27 March. I want to not take it and I go at the airport in Kuala Lumpur on 20 March today with 3 hours before the flight. There are 20 seats free in the plane leaving at 23:45 (in less than 3 hours since the moment I asked to get on this 20 March flight). Turkish Airlines can choose to let me in the plane (even charge me 100-200 EUR, reasonable) and keep the flight I bought cheap on 27 March available for sale. Being 1 week from now, Turkish airlines can sell it at double price what it sold to me in the first place, so making much more money than what took from selling to me few weeks ago. Instead, Turkish airlines tell me that it costs me 700 EUR to change the ticket (more than if I would just pay on the spot for a new ticket now in the airport to fly in 2 hours). And keeps the seat booked on 27 March instead of trying to make more money on it. I choose to not fly tonight and just wait for 27 March. Turkish Airlines looses few hundreds EUR and gets 1 frustrated client with inflexibility and lack of logic. The frustrated client will go on every forum and write how little Turkish Airlines cares about its loyal customers. This is not only few hundreds EUR lost tonight, but a customer who frequently flies intercontinental flights. Revenue stream lost for following 1-2 years is in the thousands of EUR. Well done Turkish Airlines, unfortunately for you you're not the best airline in Europe. It's a pity, because there are times when it makes sense to be a little bit flexible.

Easily the worst Airline I ever travelled with once was enough, never again! lost our luggage, made us purchase Visas to leave transit to collect it but it wasn't there. Found ourselves without our baggage in Turkey with no accommodation, money or forward flight tickets, very scary, were they bothered? They could not care less. We arrived in Istanbul from Nepal 2-hours late missing our flight to Manchester for 6-months they said our flight arrived on time telling us we were a no-show. Once the Authorities got involved they changed their story our delay now became a planed delay and they admit we arrive in Istanbul around 2-hours late. They are truly unbelievable be warned you would not want to be with Turkish Airlines when things go wrong. A very minor complaint was as vegetarians we pre booked veg meals we got one veg meal between the two of us on our whole trip which included 5-flights all with Turkish Airlines and guess what we were told it was our fault, incredible!

I travelled to Africa on Turkish Airlines last 10th January 2017 on Turkish Airlines and have a 19hours lay over in Istanbul. When I arrived to Djibouti all my check in luggage did not arrived on flight with me and when I requested to create a PIR report it took me 1 day to generate the report. Until now 14th January the bag is still missing and everything I check with Turkish Airlines. The staff is providing me the same answer reflected on the world tracer system. Its like hopeless cases and I do not think I will use Turkish Airlines ever again..... This airline will be ban from our company.

I fly fr om Nice to Dehli last week on Friday 6 January with a connection flight in Istanbul , due to wheather condition ,( 10 cm of snow , nothing abnormal in winter !) our flight was cancel , by the time we where inform about the cancelation it was midnight and we where told that the hotel booking system and transfert to an hotel was not working !!! So as thousand of other people we had to sleep on the floor of the airport ! The next day after a three hour line ! We where driven to a dirty hotel of the center of Istanbul , we recieve no information , and had to find by our own , a place to rebook our ticket , it take us 48 hours to flight out of Istanbul , during this time we were not able to get our luggage !! During this two day we recieve no information from the airline , and we were lucky As my wife speak Turkish , I have never seen a so poor management of a crise . I am now in India since five day, and we were told this morning that our luggage was still in Istanbul ! And little cherry on the cake ... As we were waiting to declare our luggage lost , Some employee wh ere having fun in considering our situation ... Apparrenly this situation happens last winter as well , so I really recommend to avoid this airline and this airport as international transfert .
