Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew was great"
Pros: "Crew was excellent.."
Cons: "For the passengers who have to go through for long hours layovers, airport must provide the access of lounge or hotel otherwise where the passengers will stay for 12 hours? The rule should be applicable for the passengers who upgrade to the Business class"
Pros: "the seats in couch wwere the narrowest we have experienced! Very uncomfortable and difficult to get out of"
Cons: "Better seats and the bathrooms were incredibly small. some of the lights did not work"
Pros: "Service was good. Staff was efficient."
Cons: "Cabin was overly warm. Sweatie hot."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been nicer. Seats were not that comfortable."
Pros: "Vegetarian food"
Cons: "If you provide blankets"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very friendly. The plane was very comfortable and made the international flight not feel as long"
Cons: "Not much to complain about"
Pros: "Easy transit. Plesant crew."
Cons: "Not much to add for an economy flight!"
Pros: "A vast amount of entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin crew was not the best. Some were very forgetful and did not return to provide us with drinks with our meal. Some did not ask passengers to raise their chairs during meal time and we were constantly forced to do it yourself."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The people sitting near me were crazy and it was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Wish there were more leg room"
Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."
Cons: "Longer wait for boarding. The assigned zones were the last possible ones. Zone F or something similar. Flight attendants were okay, cared less for economy class. Also, Bluetooth headphones pairing did not work."
Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."
Pros: "My seat mates were very nice about it when I had to climb over them; the food was fine and the staff all were great."
Cons: "Traveling in economy is torture but then it's over. The sound wasn't working at my seat and I got tired of reading lips on the movie I wanted to see. But reading and sleeping weren't bad ways to spend the time."
Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Cramped, terrible food."
Pros: "The crew was up during the whole trip, offering refreshments and taking a really good care of all passengers"
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian). Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "Service is very excellent."
Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."
Cons: "My 1 Bag was open. Lost few items. Not satisfied the luggage was handled by the crew. Overall Dissatisfied due to Bag was received in open condition. @ Amdavad Airport found issue by Crew but didn't take good care of it."
Pros: "Crewman friendly service and try to betas much as they can"
Cons: "My tickets say 1 stop in Dubai. However, I had 2 stop going and coming back. I had a stop at Athens For 90 minuets and then Dubai before I reached to my final destination. Also, going my audio was not working for Newark to Athens and Athens to Dubai. However it was working from Dubai to Ahmedabad. Also coming back they give me very hard time for my Camera bag. Somehow it’s free to fly from USA but you have to pay for the weight of camare coming back."
Cons: "The food selection was limited and not tasteful!"
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was amazing, from check in to deplaning. I’m going to sign up on their frequent flyer program."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Newark airport is depressing. Lighting in boarding area is simply awful. Also, cab fare to and from NYC is much too high. Midnight departure time of the flight to Greece is inconvenient. It is just too late. Getting through customs at Newark is a chore. There are not enough computers for passengers to report what they have to report. Also, many passengers I saw did not know how to use a computer."
Pros: "The service the movies the food"
Pros: "Flight tracker should be upgraded, I expect the mileage covered was way off. Also, I don't want to see commercials while I follow the flight. The forward camera was cool."
Cons: "Crew should keep eye on the toilets. The waste basket was backed up."
Cons: "Takeoff was a bit delayed, but the biggest problem is that we waited over an hour for our bags in Newark."
Pros: "Love it. Classy flight attendants, great service."
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth enough, take-off was roughly on time, and the flight as a whole was a bit faster than predicted. Friendly flight attendants. Plenty of entertainment options (movies, TV, music). AC outlet on seatback made it possible to charge devices in-flight."
Cons: "Food was so-so, and not particularly healthy and loaded with carbs (e.g. potatoes plus crackers plus pasta salad plus very sweet desserts), but overall somewhat typical for air flights in my experience. Seat pitch (aka leg room) was basically adequate for me (6' 4"), but not great. Touch screens on entertainment system on both outbound and return flights were a little wonky -- needed re-calibration, so it was impossible to activate virtual buttons near the edges of the screen."
Pros: "Flying with Swiss Air instead"
Cons: "Our connecting flight coming in from Crete was delayed and we arrived in Athens too late to make our flight home. The Emirates service desk offered no help in getting us on the next flight home. They were booked full the following day with the exception of business class seats and were going to charge us an additional $4000 which included $600 each for being a no show. They refused to waive any fees so it was drastically cheaper to fly home with another airline. I am most disappointed in their lack of effort to assist us in getting home and they really showed no concern. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "we were travelling with kids. They pulled us from the back and put us in the front since our group of 6 had two small kids. They were extremely nice to us in athens."
Cons: "I just wish there was a snack in the middle of the service."
Pros: "More legroom in economy class for the 10 hour flight between Newark and Athens."
Pros: "All the Air Team Crew were really friendly. On the first connection to from Nairobi to Dubai, I sat next to a fellow passenger who was nervous about the moderate turbulance that we hit. At the end of the flight, as we waited to disembark, a lovely Attendant stood next to us and we had the most warm friendly conversation I've ever had in all my years of flying. She made us feel like friends as she gave us an insight into her 'high flying' lifestyle while being professional. Unfortunately I can't remember her name as I would have loved to give her a special mention but she was so lovely."
Cons: "I didn't have much to dislike but I do recall not being woken up for a meal even though I had my sticker on the top of my chair. I was sitting on an aisle seat. Other than that, this was my first flight with emirates and it was truly awesome!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."
Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."
Pros: "Lots of movies to watch -- when the system was actually working."
Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, boarding was OK. Leg-room much better than on competing direct flight US carriers, and aircraft cabin better maintained."
Cons: "Food for kids terrible, just not edible taste-wise. Catering is better flying out of Greece than on same flight returning from U.S. Bathrooms need to be cleaned and restocked during flight."
Pros: "the attention, the comfort, the large amount and options of movies, shows, entertainment channels; the food was good. and most of all the smooth flight and experienced pilots"
Pros: "The food was good, the entertainment was good"
Cons: "There needed to be more snack options.. a mid-flight sandwich or cheese and crackers. There were only two drink carts that went by on a an 11 hour flight and these were with the 2 meals that were served. Alcoholic drinks were difficult to order except with dinner. Overall, there are more amneties, foods and drink on Delta airlines."
Pros: "The staff is super friendly and professional."
Cons: "I paid for an assigned window seat (18K) at the front of the plane. However when I arrived to my seat I was told that there is a handicap person in my room and I can't sit there and was offered a seat in the back of the plane. Yes of course I understand and wouldn't want to move a handicap person to get to my seat but at the same time I believe the seat assignment fee which I paid in advance should be refunded."
It's zero entertainment. Most of the TV are not mine. We are family of 3 people and no ones TV are working
Pros: "with 23 years old aircraft, I expected the seats are not comfortable. Same with the entertainment screen, it did not work for almost half the flight and after that, it started working like 1990s PC. The meal okay compared to other flights. From Ahmedabad to Delhi, there was no meal."
Cons: "The attitude of check-in staff. The Check-in lady was rude to talk, felt like she does not want to help me, answered my question after repeating it 3 times. Also, at the boarding gate, same staff."
Cons: "Worst ever customer service"
Pros: "Nothing was “great”. Food was reasonably good. The staff was courteous enough."
Cons: "Delay for 2 hours after boarding, with no Air conditioning.That’s unacceptable. The entertainment system not working even after resetting by the crew. I was told many seats had the similar problem !!"
Pros: "FOOD WAS OKAY"
Cons: "NEED IMPROVEMENT IN CUSTOMER SERVICE, I DONT THINK I WOULD EVER TRAVEL WITH AIR INDIA. VERY VERY VERY POOOOR SEVICE."
Cons: "pathetic customer service"
Cons: "The crew could be a bit more cheeful. A small snack would have been appreciated after spending a long time waiting yo board."
Pros: "Crew was ok , seat was ok. Thank you"
Cons: "Newark airport about 45 minutes delayed, we did not receive our luggage ( all three bags) Thanks"
Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"
Cons: "1) Fruits served as breakfast felt stale and smelled funny 2) I could see cracks in my meal table 3) The crew only came around once to collect trash which was too little in a 14 hour flight 4) The touch on the inflight entertainment system was not working 5) This is not specific to Air India but it's about Mumbai airport - there were no restrooms in the secondary boarding area (after the second check-in) and also there were not enough seats. This becomes a problem for elder people and also those traveling with families. 6) They split baggage claim into 2 carousels which was very confusing. We couldn't figure out which carousel to wait at. 7) The flight was delayed by an 45 minutes (while landing) but there were no announcements."
Pros: "Schedule Convenience"
Cons: "My seat would NOT recline. For a 15 hour flight with non-reclining seat was painfull. I complained to the crew member and he just passed it to someone who never came and checked. When I inquired again, he told me that it was a mechanical issue with the seat and they other with same issue. He said sorry, it will be repaired once on ground. Mu back is hurting after one full day of rest at home. Just they don't have any courtesy or customer satisfaction mind set. This is why they are loss making airlines. Next time will take another airlines."
Cons: "Quality n quantity of food. It can be improved.. as well as snacks or jalpan itmes should not be repeated in d same.flight."
Pros: "Food was better, seating and TVs seemed updates."
Cons: "the web check in doesn’t work. It was a nightmare trying to check in online and get seats. We set food preferences several times and in several ways (on phone , online and even confirmed it at check in) but we were not served the meals we ordered. This is a huge problem since we had the same issue going from EWR to BOM"
Cons: "My touchscreen was not working and many were having issues with movies not playing"
Pros: "Friend staff, and food"
Cons: "Long lines for bathroom. One bathroom was out of order!"
Pros: "Flight was basically on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic. Seats too small. Movie I was watching crashed, and USB port to charge phone didn't work. One restroom out of order. They served only tea and coffee before lights out, then provided alcohol at 5 am."
Pros: "Individually charming staff, but collectively the airline's organization sucks."
Cons: "1.5 hours to check in. Another 1 hour to board because of inefficient gate security. Partially collapsed seat. No legroom with huge video console under foot. It did not work anyway. No video or entertainment through the entire flight for many passengers. Tray table broken. Life jacket under the seat in front came loose further obstructing legroom. Call button? Forget it. No one ever responds. Old 777 aircraft maybe 15 years old. Food not tasty and under-salted in response to health fads. Timing of meals more for the convenience of staff than for the convenience of passengers."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour layover in Mumbai before 1:30am flight. They took us to a secured zone next to the boarding gate around 12:30am. The flight was delayed - no announcement, no water, no toilet facilities in that zone. Including kids and aged people -everyone in distress and Air India had no concern. Flight took off two hours late and not even some drink was offered. Very poor quality food. I called crew members for some help and they didn't show up. In the recess area also no food or drink was kept. We were kept hungry, thirsty and dissatisfied. Can't be worse than this."
Pros: "There is nothing to like as everything is horrible."
Cons: "Long check in lines. No web Check in. We were waiting at preboarding area and then gone through another security scan where they take away water bottle that was bought after the 1st security check. There was an issue of some kind and no one mentioned anything to anyone until people started complaining. We waited over 90 minutes past the departure time at the 2ns boarding area. There is no water nor bathrooms. What a way to treat your customers."
Cons: "Narrow seats/ lousy frequent meals/ Limited poor functioning entertainment"
Cons: "The flight from Newark to Mumbai was very uncomfortable with a rude staff"
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Pros: "The aircraft was good, it was Streamliner."
Cons: "Boarding was not well managed. While booking the ticket it said non stop, the flight actually stops at London airport Heathrow for 2 hours, and have to go for security check again."
Cons: "Going to India and coming back both times the TV wasn’t working. It was really hard to spend 17 hours in flight without it. Food was terrible ( but again can’t really expect good food in flights) rudest staff i have ever come across. I have Avoided this airline for 15 years, i thought it may have gotten better but instead it has gotten way worse!!!"
Cons: "Last moment gate change and no food for kid even though i requested."
Pros: "The comfort level of the seats is very good. There is enough space between the two seat which makes easier for people to move around and relax. It was also a kind of nice that my cabin baggage was sent with the checked one, this took away a responsibility from me to take care of my luggage."
Cons: "I did not like that during web check in it did not show me where the washrooms are located, and i ended up have seats by washroom, which ruined my trip."
Cons: "To call itself a national airline is a disgrace. The overhead lights would not work, the sound did not work, the television did not work. The crew was notified as soon as we boarded, but no action was taken. Not even a sorry. This plane should have been retired in the 70's."
Cons: "When waiting for the bus to take us to the airplane, there were no signs which stated when the bus would come, which flight it was for. We had to constantly ask people and felt like we would miss the flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the domestic airport initially because it was a flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai (domestic). Took us a while to figure that out with the language barrier and lack of internet at the airport... next we took a rickshaw to the international airport which put us just passed 45 minutes early for the flight itself. Apparently that is the limit that we didn’t know about. So we were there 40 minutes early instead of 45 and they wouldn’t let us check in even though we only had carry ons with us. Next we had to buy another air India ticket 12 hours later to Mumbai which cost us 150 dollars per ticket and made us sit at the airport for the interim. Terrible experience for us... never using air India again!"
Pros: "Liked everything except seats."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient, cabin comfortable (by 2017 standards) ... and the food puts United to shame."
Cons: "Check-in process was a total nightmare, bathrooms not the cleanest and tidiest"
Pros: "I travel on AI because the flight timings are convenient."
Cons: "The toilet near my seat was leaking urine onto the floor from the start of the flight. The attendant's solution was to spread newspaper on the floor to soak it up! The food is terrible so I carried my own. Why an Indian airline does not serve yogurt/dahii beats me, while almost every other airline does. Entertainment? Forget about it! I sat in the same seat going to Mumbai and returning. When the attendant is told that the entertainment system does not work they just shrug and say they are sorry."
Cons: "Our AI flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai was delayed by more than 3 hrs. Though I had access to the Business Class passenger lounge, the one at the AMD airport is less than mediocre. Finally, when we reached BOM, it took the wheelchair service nearly an hour to get me and other wheelchair dependent passengers off the plane. This nearly caused us to miss our connecting flight to Newark. We also did not get to use the lounge in BOM as a result of the delay in AMD and BOM. I was travelling in Business Class due to my severely bad health condition. My husband was travelling in economy. AI ground staff was so arrogant and inconsiderate that they would not help my husband get a seat (within economy class) close to the Business Class section so he can attend to me periodically on the 16-hour long flight to Newark. In addition to the ground and flight staff being inconsiderate, the interior of the plane and the food service (in the economy class) are less than mediocre. We had choice of other airlines, but being proud indians, my wife and I decided to give AI a chance. Next time, we will find other ways to show our love for India than patronizing AI."
Pros: "the 787 is a wonderful aircraft."
Cons: "Very few entertainment choices. (though this isn't particularly common these days): no way to make inflight phone calls. No Wi-Fi. Flight was delayed due to the airline's incompetence. Flight attendents were very unusually rude. Airline FORGOT THE CUSTOMS FORMS, forcing us to wait for them to be retrieved from the airport upon landing. Further, we were then not allowed to disembark the aircraft until they were filled out despite being at the gate. Worst of all, nearly half the suitcases didn't make it to our destination. Half the passengers then had to fill out forms to make a claim. Even worse, this process alone took an unreasonably long amount of time. General logistical nightmare. Very poorly executed operation."
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "Everything else. I hope this airline goes out of business."
Cons: "I had middle seat which didn't incline. I was never informed about this nor my seat was changed. It was a full flight but I have lower back issue which got aggravated due to uncomfortable seat. I was sitting straight through out the flight. it would have been better if I was informed about it in advance. I was never even able to do web checking due to their system error neither at home nor was able to use self checking system at the airport and was informed by staff at airport it's recurring problem. It surprises me that it's not fixed causing passengers pain at the airport and flight."
Cons: "Air india was awful! The water on board didn't work, the flight entertainment didn't work! Overall horrible experience"
Pros: "It is slightly cheaper than other airlines. Luggage allowance is 2 bags without additional charge."
Cons: "TV was not working and crew did not help to correct it since it was broken. All seats around had broken plastic, maintenance of the equipment was extremely poor. Toilets were not clean and even after placing a call for attendant, no help was forth coming. Crew member response to the call from the seat ( calling button) was non existent. wheelchair passengers were very poorly treated. They provided snacks at night and then breakfast and in the early morning they provided lunch. The sequence should have been reversed. Choices for food were very limited. Chicken was served as only non-veg item. Fish or anything else was not a choice. Bottled water was provided and in the lunch item instead of yogurt or anything else, they provided another small container of water. Food quality and quantity was insufficient."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was, as usual, late - a typical of Air India. No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with no ground staff on sight. 10 minutes past the departure time, 2 personnel show up informing Pax that the flight was running an hour late. Food was stale. I would rather you not serve any food and knock off a few $$ from the fare, rather than serving distasteful and stale food. Overall, bloody pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "Am a loyal air india flier from last so many years.But from last 2-3 years disappointed with the services."
Cons: "The person at the chek-in counter was so slow n rude.Even for 1kg of extra weight I was asked to remove.I flew with the same bag from delhi to mumbai n it showed as 23.3.The scale at mumbai showed 1kg more.Very few movie choices.Remotes never seem to work.Food quality goin down."
Cons: "Old and poorly maintained plane with half of the touch screen entertainment systems not working on the flight between Mumbai to Newark. Call buttons for calling the cabin crew did not work. Remote controls did not work. The seats are all broken and cracked at different places. Poor attention by staff. There was also a delay in our flight of which even the pilot was not made aware of by the maintenance team until the last moment. Poor and failing company. Would never fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was not managed well by Ahmedabad Airport. Two toilets had faults. Faulty tap and toilet seat. Lacking choice in in-flight entertainment despite high quality system. Air India should offer free water at the seat every 2 hours instead it's a help yourself service which is less good. No wi-fi services."
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage check in part. I had 2 check in baggage with almost 48 kg weight. However, it was showing 47 on another scale (very next weighing scale) and the person was so persistent about weight that he made me remove 1 kg from each bag. My question is how could you expect my weighing scale so perfect when yours are not perfect? it seems they don't care if air india lose a customer for just couple of kg weights. Also, no announcement for boarding, people started making their own queue. Flight was delay by almost an hour however, no courtsey to inform passanger or no monitor/tv to show at boarding gate that flight is delayed."
Pros: "Food tasted really good, hospitality, cleanliness"
Cons: "Inadequate toiletries in the toilet, a couple of fellow passengers were quite rude regarding an issue with keeping my bag on my allotted place."
Cons: "seats were a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after sitting in the plane for three hours. Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The complete and utter unprofessionalism and inexperience from airplane crew to ground staff. The flight got cancelled after we were sitting in the plane for three hours. We were told we can go to a hotel and wait for plane to be fixed by the next day or re-book. A majority of us wanted to get to NY that day so we wanted to re-book. When we get to the Air India desk there was one sweet old Indian lady working there, completely unaware of what is going on: that our flight got cancelled, that we sat in plane for three hours, that we wanted to re-book. It took hours and many arguments with various staff of Heathrow to get us re-booked to other flights. Our flight was scheduled at 12:30pm; I finally got re-booked at 5:00pm, and left Heathrow at 10pm! Longest day ever! I have flown across the world in less time than what it took me to fly from London to NY."
Pros: "I was pleased with the free blanket and pillow, however it was hard to get sleep when the pilot kept interrupting to tell the cabin unimportant information every 30 minutes for 8 hours. Entertainment selection was sparse and food was dry. The crew however was incredibly responsive and helpful."
Pros: "The flight from India to London was already two hours late, but I was forewarned, so left me home in the south of England later, and got to Heathrow in time for the later take-off. Once on the plane, technical difficulties were found, which kept us on the ground or another three+ hours. Arriving in Newark at 8:30 p.m. instead of the 3 p.m. expected made it a very long, uncomfortable day. Again, not Air India's fault. Going to London from Newark on Air India five days earlier was one of the best flights I've had. The crew on both flights were great, and the food and drink were surprisingly good."
Pros: "There is nothing to like only non stop flight bom to ewr"
Cons: "Rude attitude staff . Food v don't need 3 times 2 times proper n good food enough one time proper coffee n tea v need . Air India should think about staff . Internationally our brand name is going low because of staff they r not responsible. Entertainment there is no regeional movies old movies that to one movie r two compare other flights it is 0. Please go to privatisation otherwise this brand never change air India always in loss. Bathrooms more than worste . Head phone won't work . It's a hell man but because of easy traveling v choose AI, govt should think about this flight attendants old n rude fellows. They r not friendly m a frequent flyer trust me officers . This is the time u should think iam a film actor from AP ."
Cons: "Online check-in didn't work; physical check-in process was exceptionally long. No beverage service on the flight. Took 6 hours to find out they had some sort of cart in the back that you could visit for drinks. No diet soda at all, and the soda I did get came in a dirty can. It looked like it was covered in dirt or clay, or something that resembled rust. Will not fly again unless absolutely necessary. The only positive aspect was the star alliance affiliation so I could get my miles to my account."
