Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Air India is the best. Highly recommend it"
Cons: "Not many movies available. The plane was old and the wear and tear was visible. There was loose connection between the headset and its input point."
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."

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 !"

Overall, I won’t be flying air India again."
