I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey.

Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."

Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "delays with little information and compensation"

The line was long, slow and uncomfortable and the airline did little to ease our discomfort. They refused to allow us use of the lounge in Bali. I had to talk to multiple people in Doha for access to the Oryx lounge there and they at the end, reluctantly let me use it."

Pros: "Staff were pleasant. Boarding was fine."
Cons: "It is tedious being woken up by staff in the middle of the night asking if you want to eat."

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."

Gave breakfast item for dinner time( omelete and sausage ) and gave rice and okra for breakfast to my co passenger. Th food was horrible tasting. Cold and frozen croissants. Very bad food and service. Did not get a pillow. The airhostess said there were few pillows and they ran out! Also did not have headphones. . Will not travel with Air India in the future. Did not take expect my mational airlines to be this pathetic. Also was an hour late . The arm rests are worn out. Dirty seats."

Pros: "Comfort of non-stop flight from SFO to Delhi. Good Food."
Cons: "Poor entertainment system during the return journey."
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: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it. All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Most of the passengers were seated separately from their families and kids. Very haphazard seat assignment. passengers were requesting each other so that they could sit with their young kids."
Cons: "TV did not work both ways. Poor selection of content."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working. Old plane, Bathrooms were not clean and soap dispenser was not working. I had to wait for a long time for special assistance."

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 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."
Cons: "Seat F37, entertainment system was not working. I see that AirIndia being an major Indian bran don't have major regional languages ? Singapore airlines, Emirates have lot of Kannada movies, why not Air India ?"
Pros: "Food was great, entertainment decent. LONG flight but it passed by without much drama."
Cons: "Really old and dirty 777-200 LR. Seemed that the attendant call button was deliberately deactivated, and for several hours didn't see any attendants in our area. Also reading light seemed to be deactivated. Bathrooms got filthy after a while and never got cleaned (that I saw)."
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."
Pros: "Convenient flight from Delhi to San Francisco, however our entire entertainment system was not working and the crew also misbehaved with us. I was sitting in 22H. My wife was in 22J and our other flight passenger in 22K also had issues with their system."
Cons: "Bad service, bad crew and also misbehaved with us. When we complained they said we can't do anything. It was a 16 hour non-stop flight. all systems should be checked before you leave the ground. Or you provide a capability of refunding your passengers."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seats malfunctioned. Food terrible. Drink selection low quality for business class. Service apathetic. Movie selection terrible. Headsets with unbearable static. Lounge dirty. For the price, you can fly Thai, Cathay or Singapore - only drawback is they require 1 stop."
Pros: "Crew inside flight was fine."
Cons: "Check-in counter crew was not friendly. Aircraft that flew from Chennai to Delhi was in bad condition. Please perform maintenance and upgrades on the aircraft."
Pros: "Priority Boarding for families, on schedule. Food ok for indians."
Cons: "Entertainmaint system does not work. To boaring to fly 15 h without that."
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."
Pros: "They send me last minuite 4 hour delay from Amritsar while I was sleeping. I couldn't get the connection to Varanasi.I had to cancel the trip. But I had to pay hotel charge I think it is very unfair"
Pros: "on-time....no issues. Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Less selection on english movies.... little wider, flat business class seats like other airlines have."
Pros: "Reading material s handed out were good."
Cons: "Made to sleep most of the 16 hr flight"
Cons: "just 1 drinks service on a 16 hour long flight"
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: "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: "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)"
