Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."

Cons: "Boarding announcement and system were unorganized"
Cons: "Cabin service"
Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."
Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."
Cons: "It took 90 minutes in the line to check our luggage despite checking in on line. There were lots of Emirates personnel but only few at the counters, others were mingling among the passengers and being useful."
Cons: "Food was not provided due to shortage as per attendant."
Pros: "Everything from check in to arrival"
Cons: "Food , if you serve Indian food it should comes with chapati and not bread bun."
Pros: "Emirates has never disappointed me in service. They are consistent in upping their game in service and comfort to their customers. I have tried multiple airlines over the years to fly to India but nothing beats Emirates."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable seats. Great on board service"
Pros: "Flying with Emirates"
Pros: "Great Service! Will highly recommend to others!"
Pros: "good services...."
Pros: "Full flight, we got on smoothly and took off on time. The plane was clean and the pilots during abbouncekents were easy to understand and funny."
Cons: "I had to wait over 1.5 hours to use the bathroom because of the food and drink carts. The flight attendant would not let me use first clsss and told me I had to wait. That was way to long to make someone wait."
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"
Pros: "the price of the flight was the best part of the deal"
Cons: "have to pay for movies, and no good selection of snacks on flight."

Pros: "The boarding process was as expected and comfortability."
Cons: "I did not like the fact there was no in flight tv, while I brought my laptop the wifi did not work at all."
Cons: "The food was aweful."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"
Pros: "Crew kept passengers informed about changing information"
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Cons: "delay too long"
Cons: "Travelling with United Airlines company you have to know that you need to download the UA app before your flight otherwise you need to pay for the internet during the flight to download the app. Without this app any movie on your device wouldn't played."
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Pros: "Excellent attentive care."
Cons: "My first 5 hour long flight did not have a complimentary snack."
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Cons: "My flight was significantly delayed. They kept changing the departure time and we ended up getting in very late."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"
Cons: "they have the worst customer service."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight crew. The fight wasn't full to capacity so I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was not free."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Pros: "We had an empty seat between us which made the trip much more comfortable. The dinner service was pretty tasty actually. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Forcing people to use their own electronic devices rather than having in-seat entertainment is obnoxious. Insert typical complaint about tiny spaces on airplanes. The pre-landing snack sandwich was pretty nasty."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight had no flight crew, so I had to fly out the following day, missing important client meetings and losing money. I paid extra to fly out on Sunday so I would be able to make my obligations, but didn't arrive until Tuesday night. No refund or voucher was offered, although I asked. It would be nice if they at least paid the difference between the flight I paid for and the cheaper flight I received."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Cons: "The food was horrible. Even legroom in economy plus was cramped."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Won't let you check in in advance so they can give you a terrible seat for a 12 hour flight. They won't even let you check in from the point of departure if it's with one of their partners. They also will do everything in their power to not give award miles to pattern airline clubs. It doesn't matter if you give them your United number and even register your United number with the flight for United. They will apply it to the Lufthansa Club and pretend it was just in the state and never actually give you the miles no matter how many times you try. This is not from one experience with Lufthansa / Austrian. I've had this experience many times with every flight I take with these terrible Airlines. I would never fly lifthansa unless it's at least $200 cheaper than any of their competitors."
Pros: "getting there"
Cons: "getting there late"
Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "I ordered and paid for food that they forgot to serve me. I had to go to the back to ask for my food. When I did they were rude about it. UA has offered a coupon for 50.00 that I can use if I fly with them again-- which would cost about 1000. No thanks, United. I'll fly with China Air."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Missing my international connection, having to spend 24 hours in San Francisco, not able to reschedule on a different flight. United paid for my hotel and gave me three $7 food vouchers. They only gave me 4oz of soda...I asked for the can and the flight attendant was rude. I wouldn't pay $7.99 for 3 hours of wifi."
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
Pros: "My flights/trip to Billund were rebooked, because of Lufthansa's strike. So I travelled a different route; Sacramento to Houston, to Toronto, to Copenhagen and from there to Billund."
Cons: "There is a lot of difference between flights experience from San Francisco to Delhi and Delhi, India to San Francisco. India to San Francisco was little better. Service was very poor. Food was not on time and quality and quantity was poor. Get your own stuff to save yourself from starving."
Pros: "Crew were really responsive"
Cons: "Entertainment never worked. They couldnt turn of lights due to technical problems Delayed by 2 hrs due to fuel loading issues No toilet essentials available from first hour of the flight"
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Cons: "Air craft quality: terrible. Entertainment system: didn’t work (flight attendants say.. sorry not all of them work!!)."
Pros: "Comfort of non-stop flight from SFO to Delhi. Good Food."
Cons: "Poor entertainment system during the return journey."
Pros: "Overall it wasn’t that bad"
Cons: "My entertainment set was broken so I was suffering for 15 hours"
Pros: "As I boarded Air India New Delhi to San Francisco, I felt it like a "senior citizen " flight. Most of my time went into connecting with elderly people around. Most of them were first time travelers. Curious ,anxious , innocent and slow learners ; I enjoyed helping them out with tinny tiny tech bits. The collection of Indian music , movies was good to , suiting to Indian taste ! And the food was good !"
Cons: "Boarding the Air India New Delhi to San Francisco was one of the most adventurous experience for me! The Mumbai - New Delhi journey was short and sweet ! As the connecting time was around 2 hrs , I had to rush to board the next flight. The connecting bus to the airport made me wait for a long time and I reached the gate quite late after the boarding was over! And after all this drama where I rushed and ran through ,crossing the domestic airport ; there was a long queue for general security check. I ran to the immigration , rushed through the security check. And finally reached the gate. I forgot , I am pregnant ! I was told there , I will have to shift to another seat due to "emergency" exchange reason ! Oh gosh ! I felt , I deserve a round of applause for making it there and I was offered an exchange ! It's unbelievable, but the flight got delayed by 3 hours! Yes, you read it right , by three hours ! The crew members were not that prompt and welcoming ! The flight toilets weren't sufficiently equipped with the necessities. They was no hot water flowing through many taps, seat-covers were missing, even the basic toiletries were."
Cons: "Entertainment systemwas not working through out the flight"
Cons: "They were skimpy on giving food. For 2 adults and two paid kids, they were trying to get away with 2 peanut pouches! Requested special kids meal, did not receive it. Crew could not help with frozen screen, so over 15 hours no entertainment"
Cons: "Overhead reading light and TV display were broken rendering me without entertainment for 16 hours. I couldn't event charge my electronics to use them as a flashlight to read my books as the USB chargers were broken for the whole row. I couldn't even get the attendant's attention for a while since the attendant call-button was broken. By the time she walked by next (hours later) she restarted it but it didn't fix the issue and I had no way of getting her attention again for a while. Really awful experience."
Cons: "Food was cold"
Cons: "Horrible ....very poor in flight services. Outdated aircraft untrained crew .worse in flight experience I ever had .i will never ever fly again with air India .if you are thinking about booking with air India please don't. they will be named worst airlines in the world . I recently fly with air India from san francisco to delhi and back and I regret my decision .unfriendly crew and food quality is very poor they only served beverage one time in 16 hours flight. So learn from my mistake do not book with air India."
Pros: "Friend staff, and food"
Cons: "Long lines for bathroom. One bathroom was out of order!"
Cons: "TV did not work both ways. Poor selection of content."
Cons: "I had no entertainment. They didn't do anything about it"
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."
Cons: "Tv was not working. It s really old technology. Should use air freshener frequently. Can work on toilets."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Customer service was ok, and seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Excellent courteous service, frequently serving food, nice decor"
Pros: "direct flight save time"
Cons: "plane condition was bad . broken seats , missing screw under seat shield . personnel entertainment system don't work , headphone jack broken. No alcoholic drinks offered. Overall very bad experience. even the toilet ran out of water and no cleaning."
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Crew is not interested in visiting the cabin at all. Half of the on seat entertainment screens do not work. The selection is poor."
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken didnt work at al"
Pros: "Direct flight Good service"
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."
Pros: "Despite the plane not taking off on time, we were able to arrive per schedule. Flight crew was good. Helped as necessary. Will get you there on time."
Cons: "Food. Seats and entertainment screen was okay. Plane was good, but not that well maintained."
Cons: "The food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."
Pros: "First of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flFirst of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flight arrived in Delhi.ight arrived in Delhi."
Pros: "The timing and comfort is good."
Cons: "When sear assignment was done for aisle, still I was given a middle seat. Registered for non vegetarian meal but was given vegetarian"
Pros: "Only good thing about this flight is that it's not stop flight to Delhi."
Cons: "Planes on San Francisco to Delhi route are really old and smaller than most of the international flights. The interior of ppane has really old look and feel. Most of entertainment screens don't work as expected. Seat cushions are really old and worn which makes 16 hours for flight even more uncomfortable. Food is ok quality as well."
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: "The only 2 crew members that made me want to review "Excellent" instead of Poor, were inside the aircraft."
Cons: "Bullshit boarding process that left me furious! I had a family of 5 that all had seats together. I specifically requested for extra leg space chairs as I have someone in my family who is 6'+ and another member who recently had knee replacements and thus needs extra leg space to allow more knee flexibility. My seats were all good to go, and I arrived at the airport 8hrs prior to my flight and was able to check in and print boarding passes. When I was boarding the aircraft, the gentlemen crossed off my families seats and re-wrote them in PEN right at the gate. I told him I did not approve, and he said "it is to make all your members together". I had told him we were already seated together and I did not like him switching my seats last minute. Turns out when I went in the aircraft that my seats were given to other members, and my family was forced to sit in another row. The team in the aircraft called the guy from the gate and asked why this was done. He gave me all sorts of bullshit excuses, none which made sense. He said it is "Impossible" to give me my original seats back. The other issue occurred from SFO-DELHI where the crew was incredibly rude. They would walk away in the middle of someone speaking, and wouldn't stand to listen to the full request."
Cons: "just 1 drinks service on a 16 hour long flight"
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: "Non stop less fly hours."
Cons: "Air hostess appearance"
Pros: "Timing - good landing time at SFO"
Cons: "Old aircraft Dis-interested flight attendants"
Pros: "Food served was good"
Pros: "Waited 1 hr. to check into my flight even though only 4 people were in front of me in line. Waited another hour after boarding time to get on the plane. Two of the bathrooms were broken on the flight, leaving only two bathrooms for the entire flight, so had to wait in a half-hour queue each time I had to use the bathroom. Seats were uncomfortable and staff was inattentive and didn't seem to care."
Pros: "It was relaxing."
Pros: "The price, the route, the scheduled departure time. Food and entertainment did not apply. YOu do not offer N/A as an option ."
Cons: "Late departure from AMD . Lack of clarity from the announcements at AMD airport."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Food is terrible Beverage service was slow Garbage everywhere TV not working"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Even though the flight was delayed at Delhi airport we reached 20mins early at SFO. Flight arrived early Good food !!!"
Pros: "Decent food with vegetarian option and shortest flying time."
Cons: "Very old flight, bathroom had soap bar ( don't know who uses them), bathroom had thousands of security clearance stickers, food cart had local news papers as table top cover, rocking chair, my screen audio and control was with next seat and vice versa. The worst experience is check in process. There are 2 checkin .. one when u do flight transfer and the other before the gate.. the flight was at 2 30am and we were asked to stand in the line at 1am including old folks and family with kids. When I questioned the benefit behind the second checkin, the airport rep and security threatened to not allow me to board the flight. When I said I will take this to social media they said to have my passport marked so that I can never enter india. These folks are taking things for granted and misuse their power. I am not flying with Air India anymore."
Pros: "The food was nice"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work The crew was very unprofessional The plane was quite old and things were falling out"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flew the AIR INDIA direct flight from SFO to Delhi with return. None of on-board services were in working condition. The in-flight entertainment system did not work at all - neither the touch screen mode, nor the remote controller mode. In fact, multiple buttons had come out of the remote controller - even the button to call flight attendant had come out. The headset was broken. I thought atleast food will be better than other flights, but it was sub-standards. Stiil, if you like to take advantage of the flight being non-stop, plan your journey with a book or two, an ipad and a headset, these were my saviour."
Cons: "aircraft pretty old, most seats have some problem or the other. crew wasn't the most friendly. juice not served only once. (only had 2 options)"
Pros: "The crew was attending all well."
Cons: "After the breakfast lunch was served almost after 10 hrs. It was rather too much."
Pros: "Air hostesses appearances"
Cons: "Quick boarding great services."
Cons: "On board service of crew members and the plane itseld was extremely old."
Pros: "Hospitality Overall at home feeling"
Cons: "Seat width"
