Airline reviews

Pros: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."

Pros: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."

Cons: "Extremely bumpy take off and landing. The pilot could do better."

Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."

Cons: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"

Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "Boarding process at Hyderabad and disembarkation at Visakhapatnam. At both places bus ride was painful."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Co passengers"

Cons: "all ok"

Cons: "The staff at the aiport check in counter are not very well trained regarding visa requirements for other countries. The cabin crew needs to better train passengers regarding the amount of space allowed for their seat."

Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."

Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."

Cons: "Luggage lost. No apologies, no compensation"

Cons: "Check in was terrible. They had so much trouble with international credit card!!! Almost made me miss my flight."

Cons: "Limiting the free baggage allowance to 15 kg is quite difficult to meet when you are a foreigner visiting India. The cost for extra weight is very expensive."

Pros: "The airline was just fine."
Cons: "I was charged $100 for a checked bag when I was told by the airline that I could easily have two free checked bags with the fare that I paid. When I tried to get a hold of Kiwi I got no response. Also, the airline wanted another credit card number which was not mine. It was a very frustrating experience at the counter. Kiwi has questionable practices"

Pros: "Crew tried to be helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Difficult to find if in right line to check in. After asking many finally found a staff member who realized I had only a few minutes to catch my flight. Then given priority. IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"

Cons: "Flight missed & the passenger is traveling through bus from Bom to Hyd. Very Poor Service. Very disappointed. ☹️"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "The cabin crew didn’t even ask us for water. We were yelled at by Anoop T working for indigo airlines at Trivandrum airport. He was drunk and unnecessarily charged us for baggage check in when clearly our tickets stated that no extra baggage charges are applicable. The third party through which we booed our flight generated 3 PNRs and Anoop claimed that he will charge us for baggage check in. He was impatient, rude and drunk."

Pros: "Excellent condition and on time."

Leading aborted close to runway, took of again before touchdown at Chennai, then turned around and landed safely after 15 minutes. No explanation by the crew."

Pros: "Despite the weather being really bad, the pilots ensured a smooth flight. Kept updating the passengers which provided comfort and prevented any potential panic."

Pros: "Seats are very nice."
Cons: "Flight attendants do not have passengers obey flight safety rules. Passengers roam around plane when seat belt light is on. Talk on phone all the way thru take off. Very weak on enforcement of safety requirements."

Cons: "Food was strictly Indian, not for an international chooice"

I always prefer a window seat for the view but my window glass pane was terribly deteriorated from the outside. Didn’t inspire much confidence in the aircraft. Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."

Pros: "The Spicejet staff is very uncooperative . They failed to keep their promise to help change the departure date because of death in the family. They said they will help me change the ticket although I was willing to pay the penalty. Kayak should investigate this ad try to help customers PNR LDGLGQ Ref letter for complaint to Spicejet customers care 04972182 Mahfuzur Rahman Tel 901 2384134"

Pros: "No use of booking spicemax .. you are treated just like another passenger. No priority on anything."

Pros: "The flight was short."

Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"

Cons: "Quality of air is low to unhealthy."

Pros: "Punctual and safe flight. Regular service for a budget carrier."
Cons: "This is not a good choice for international travelers. Spicejet is a low cost carrier with a 15kg baggage allowance. I guess most international tourists like me have more to carry. I had 23 kg and ended up paying almost twice the amount of the ticket price. So I think it is better to fly with regular carriers such as Air India."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No in flight service. Crammed and small seats. Had to pay recess baggage fees since did not know that the ticket I bought via kayak was without any checked in baggage."

Cons: "The plane was old..."

Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
