Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "1.The crew was average. the seat comfort is different in different rows as far as legroom is concerned. 2. The crew member was not aware of the procedure involved in passengers involved transfers to various destinations after landing at New Delhi. They misguided some passengers(including me) directing them to exit through emmigration procedure, collect the baggage and report at domestic transfer desk. we had been issued Transfer Boarding Pass at Chicago itself for our connection flight to Bengaluru.There was no need to go through the emmigration at New Delhi and collect the baggage. The baggage collection procedure was a hell of a business. This can be verified from the various registers maintained at domestic transfer desk. it took almost 3 hours for getting the luggage going through the customs etc, 4. At the arrival lounge there was no AIR INDIA HELP DESK or representative to guide the passengers. Similarly, the sign board only displayed transfers/baggage claims arrows. and the suddenly one finds a sign board displaying domestic transfers. At this point confusion arises as the passengers disembarked from international flights are required to go to international transfers where there is no requirements for emmigration and baggage collection as the emmigration procedures take place at final destination if it has the facilities. 3, The numbers of passengers affected may be verified from the various registers at the airport. On three registers kept at various entry points, we had to make entries as regards passport No. baggage tag No. Fligh No. etc, etc."
Cons: "WE received an email from AIR INDIA that our connecting Flight AI 174 from New Delhi to Bengaluru has been cancelled due to operational reasons. The new connecting flight is AI 1174 from New Delhi to Bengaluru. 2. While checking in at Chicago we were issued Transfer boarding passes for second leg of journey from New Delhi to Bengaluru. It displayed Flight No. AI 174, instead of AI 1174. When this was brought to the notice of the official at the counter at Chicago airport he told in their computer there is no change. The baggage tags also displayed AI 174. 3. After alighting at New Delhi and going through all the hell when we checked in at domestic transfer desk, the official observed that out Transfer Boarding passes for Delhi-Bengaluru sector is for AI 174 and the luggage ( four bags) also contained the same flight number AI 174. 4, we were told we will now be issued new boarding passes for AI 1774 as domestic passengers. SIMILARLY, new baggage tags were placed on luggage. There we were also told that AI 174 a San Francisco to Bengaluru Flight via New Delhi is not cancelled and it is only delayed, Had we not been misguided at Delhi, we could have simply boarded AI 174 at Delhi and the luggage also could have reached Bengaluru in the same flight without we going through the procedure of baggage retrieval process at Delhi as it was along with other passengers luggage already kept AT DELHI AIRPORT departure terminal for uploading in AI 174. It is our humble suggestion that even by mistake if passengers go through emmigration procedures at one airport instead of the next port of destination, system should be in place to take care of the same by MARKING the person to again go through the emmigration procedure at the final destination.."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Yes crew members are all very kind and seats are comfortable"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. I paid extra for a window seat but someone else was also booked in that seat, so I was forced to move to an aisle seat in the middle. I will be asking for a refund for the upgrade. Not only was I denied the window seat, but the seat I was moved to had a broken screen."
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The plane was not clean and very little leg room."
Pros: "The cabbin crew they don’t even talk nicely to the passengers they have attitude, they don’t even provide extra pillows Food was bad Service was bad Airline is bad six hours delayed from delhi to Hyderabad two times security check that is unexpected. They don’t even realize new born babies, infants, old age and sick peoples are traveling. This airline is dumb, worst, poor, bad, I’m not going to suggest to my relatives and friends neighbors for air India airline."
Cons: "I don’t like food it’s not enough for one person if I ask extra they said we don’t have it, it’s ridiculous it’s long journey you should provide extra food, it was nasty food and not enough."
Cons: "The entertainment system never works. You will have your fingers worn out by trying out the touchscreen. Tried reporting this to the crew member and he just laughed indicating that the passengers on Air India dont deserve entertainment system. I have traveled twice in AI and both the times it didnt work. Even if you are getting some other mid eastern airways for additional price, please chose that rather than Air India."
Pros: "It was in time. No issues with luggages"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat reservation but they gave me just random seat not the one I picked."
Cons: "It was okay. Good crews."
Cons: "At the Chicago airport I have to plead for the seats together for my parents and after realizing that my mother had a broken arm ,they finally gave one. This situation became worst when the Air India Airline didn't provided wheel chair assistance to my parents at the destination airport in New Delhi. We had requested it way earlier with our Itinerary. This is one of the worst flight to book. If you are taking this feedback try to work on this and make other customers aware that beware of booking your flights with Air India when you need wheel chair assistance."
Pros: "Food Crew Service"
Cons: "During the time of boating there were two people who were randomly checking the passengers and having them weigh their cabin baggage and carryon bags. In my case I had some extra weight in my bags since I was carrying my work laptop and personal laptop with me. They didn't let me board until I talk to Manager. I wanted to file a complaint regarding it. Both my checking bags had less then 23Kg. No one at the checking told me to weigh my carryon bags. If they would have told me at that time I could have transferred my stuff. This was first and last time I was flying from Air India. I will tell all my friends and family members not to fly with Air India. TV monitor was not working in my whole flight. Even the next seat passenger had the same issues. My seat no was 37D Hope these issues will be resolved for future customers. Pradeep Bhatia"
Cons: "Delayed several times Overbooked Lavatories not working"
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken for most part"
Pros: "The only thing good about Air India today was that they were on time. As far as Business Class goes, there airplanes needed an update 10 years ago, and I'm still waiting. From Chicago, they are the only non-stop flight to Delhi, so there is little incentive for them to upgrade."
Cons: "Very tired cabin and the on demand video was awful..."
Pros: "Business Class"
Pros: "Air India is the best. Highly recommend it"
Pros: "Welcoming, food"
Cons: "The seats were okay but can be comfortable."
Pros: "Nice Everything is good."
Cons: "They can supply better food."
Pros: "The price and that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Video didn’t work and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "In flight service was simply outstanding. The crew was ever ready to assist and always smiling."
Cons: "Check in procedure was extremely slow and the person seemed rather cold. No special checked baggage allowance for First Class passenger. BA allows 3 bags. Would have been nice to see some leniency or formal change in their baggage policy."
Pros: "The fact that the plane worked and I was able to arrive in New Delhi safely."
Cons: "Awful service! The air hosts/hostesses don't care about you if you traveling economy. This was a 16 hour flight but they didn't even offer water for 6-7 hours. I used my attendant button at least 12 times and no one came to my seat. I had to hunt them down and found all of them holed up in the back of the plan gossiping and laughing. Adding to this, their entertainment systems were faulty and didn't work half of the time I was on the plane. The sound quality may have been alright but the headphones that they provided gave a really muffled sound so it was really hard to understand. I tried to use my personal headphones but the entertainment system would only allow for Air India's "special" headphones. The food was mediocre and they served their meals in spurts. Within the first two hours of the plane taking off, they served us one meal. Then there was no food or water service for at least 8 more hours. Then they gave us a meal 4 hours before we were supposed to land and then again a heavy snack an hour later. So basically, we were left to fend for ourselves for 8 hours with no food or water. I am dreading the journey back from Delhi to Chicago now."
Cons: "Crew folks are like bus conductors, bad food, screens dont work, seats not clean, junk in front pouches."
Cons: "Worst food I’ve ever had, highly salty and tasteless. And seats were literally falling apart. Even in upright position, they were reclining all the way under the weight of average passengers."
Pros: "Loved the leg room in the economy class seats, much more comfortable than other airlines. The flight crew was courteous, overall a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Boarding was surprisingly smooth and food, as anticipated was really good."
Cons: "Neither the touch screen display or the remote worked. Mentioned that to one of the flight attendant who told me that the system will be reset after the food service. That did not happen so after waiting for another 2 hours into the flight, I spoke to another attendant who did reset the entertainment system. It did not work. Brought it to her attention and the response I got was, "Sorry, the flight is full and there is no other seat available". I had to sit through 14 hour long journey looking at other passengers or hear babies cry non-stop !"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and helpful. Pilot was great."
Cons: "The seats were dilapidated, equipment didn’t work and the entertainment system was a mess. Movies kept on stopping and had to started again only to stop one more time."
Cons: "Seats were broken. Head lights were not working. Tv and its remote were not working. Cold food."
Pros: "The food was decent. That’s about it."
Cons: "Other than this, the on flight entertainment was broken for the 15 hour flight, and people and their kids became restless. The staff refused to do much about it. It was a really bad experience. Some of the lights weren’t working for people who wanted to read and they were told to stand near the bathroom area for light. Overall, I won’t be flying air India again."
Pros: "Very pour quality amenities, horrible food quality even for Indian taste. Most of the screens don't work, seat cushions very bad shape and untidy. Air hostess are useless, no body knows where they are most of the time. Only Reason We chose air India was due to convenient timings."

No mouth freshnessner no moisturiser .our LCD wasn't working at all , even we couldn't off the screen , the whole journey in front of our eyes a bright screen so couldn't sleep and no eye pad provided , the flight was already delayed by 7 hours ...

Pros: "leg room, on time take off and landing"

Cons: "The woman who checked in our bags was very rude. She was not accommodating at all. I paid money to be on this flight, she was acting like she owned the airline and I was flying on the airline for free. Very rude. I will never fly Air India again."
Pros: "On time, convenient"
Cons: "The ticket with no seat assignment and was seated in children's isle that did not have TV entertainment, that's cruelty for a 16 hour flight!!"
Cons: "Equipment did not work well. Business class seat that would not return to upright position."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The air hostess was rude to the elderly passenger who might not have ever flew and in the other airlines the crew members are really very helpful, they give a smile all the time and give special attention to the elderly, this was missing in this flight."
Cons: "they use older aircraft. nothing works, the entertainment center, the touch screen don't work at all, if you want to look at the map, none of your neighbor passenger's screen is working, or you want to listen or watch something you will never get it, looks like only 30% of the economy class touch screen/entertainment center works. the food sucks. crew only serves food and do nothing more for passengers. most of the time they dont have non veg, they dont even ask for veg or non veg, they will give you what they have. they don't serve drinks, you have to get up and go to the crew to get drinks. once they serve food, they go back to their hole. they wont come to check the needs of the passenger - water or other drinks. you have to go and get it yourself. horrible horrible experience in a long haul flight of 16 hours."
Pros: "Food,was good and staff were courteous!"
Cons: "Check in at O'Hare was extremely slow due to carousel / roller belt malfunction! While the seats provided sufficient Kent legroom space, the pull out food trays were wobbly, unstable and uneve. It is time they need an overhaul! Entertainment was sub par compared to other airlines. Selections were old and meager. Cameras weren't working properly!"
Cons: "Entertainment services not working. Very disappointed"
