Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The check in process took a long time; longer than other carriers. In spite of so many crew members being there at the gate, there were no announcement of the boarding process. It used to be there before. When asked the staff is very politely responds on what is going on but the rest of the passengers do not know what's going on. Wonder why the staff do not follow the seating process by zone as mentioned on the boarding pass."

Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."

Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."

Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"

Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!

Never again. Lost my item because of their stupidity

Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email. Kind regards, Mohammed Sent from my iPhone

I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"

Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline. Refuse to give a wheelchair for an elderly claiming she has to book it in advance.. what if the person broke their legs that day??? None sense. And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."

Smooth boarding take off before time and arrived 23 minutes before TIME.

The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.

Flight got delayed and was declared before half an hour. It’s not fair with those who are loyal with Indigo.

Perhaps providing a menu would have helped as it was my first time onboard and I did not know what was being served.

No one seemed to bother about the pandemic and moreover no one checked if the passengers are fully vaccinated or not. Not a single pandemic rule is being followed.

Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.

Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Pros: "The seat was really bad and the crew didn't make any effort to dim the lights for about 75% of the journey. I would say an international flight on a low-cost carrier like Indigo should be avoided."
Cons: "if the cabin crew had been a little more cooperative, this flight could have been better"
Pros: "Amazing crew, clean plane and on-time and seamless boarding and arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment option via app."

Cons: "we lost our bags"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Delays to be avoided, Gate changes to be avoided, Boarding process was not properly streamlined."
Pros: "Service and staff were brilliant"

Cons: "Luggage lost. No apologies, no compensation"
Cons: "Lost my luggage due to mistake at check in desk"

Pros: "Friendly attitude"
Cons: "Charging for food or beverages"
Pros: "the airline manage the well UPTU issuing boarding pass."
Cons: "Airline doesn't provide inflight meals moreover they do not accept Indian currency, the currency half the country from which they are operating. They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted. There were many passengers who were not carrying case in Qatar Riyal and their cards work not successfully swipe,therefore they remained hungry. This is in human and no airline on international route is allowed to do so"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "My seat cushion was flattened but otherwise a nice flight!"

Cons: "Heat"
Cons: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."

Cons: "Slack enforcement of basic rules: wearing seat belts, not using phones in flight, not standing up until the plane has come to a stop."

Cons: "No refreshments available for the return flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
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."

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: "On time"
Cons: "Food choice"
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "This is the worst airline i have ever traveled. Indigo change their flight times many times and they canceled the flight twice hence i will never book this flight in future"

Airline deducted my money from the bank for particular seats but airline didn't give me that seats I was very upset .this air line make very sad when I was going to India it had technicall fault with airplane we have late for two days they didn't refund my money. And I have lost my only son due to late flight. O didn't like this flight

Good drinks with cordial staff. Very bad food served. Yea can’t have non veg options over when half the plane is yet to be served Very narrow seats.

Crew was great. Food is very boring. No liquor as usual they didn’t have stock. Always a problem with ccj airport with all flight companies.

Everything was perfect except options for entertainment

Both time Media not work on my sit.

Overall good

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor boarding process with unnecessary security checks at the gate with long lines, no priority for business class passengers, old dirty seats, had to ask for blankets and basic amenities, service was poor. Not up to standards for other airlines for business class travel"
Pros: "no"
Cons: "Everything can be upgraded as nothing works in air india. Bathrooms are always either flooded or so dirty. Need more hygienic way of traveling."
Cons: "Proper check in at the surat airport is requiresd"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Check in was completely chaotic. Many machines didn’t work."
Pros: "fastest SFO - DEL connection. Great aircraft, professional staff."
Cons: "Food was mediocre and several TV sets didn't work. My daughter switched seats (in economy) twice and both TVs weren't responding to touch or remote."
Pros: "Me and my wife paid for extra legroom seats but was denied seating to our assigned seats because the staff printed the boarding pass with the wrong seat assignment in them. The head of ground crew told us that either we fly or we need to onboard the plane.."
Cons: "I paid fee for preferred seating but airline did not allott the seating that I selected."
Pros: "Staff behaviour is good."
Cons: "The takeoff is always delayed. Food quality is substandard."
Cons: "Almost everything- uncomfortable seating, pathetic hosting, malfunctioning entertainment system, delays over 3 hours, missed flights and poor customer treatment. Not one thing went right."
Cons: "Food and crew are good"
Pros: "Good flight.....reached in time."
Cons: "Check in luggage in two belts at newark airport creats confusion.."
Pros: "The customer service and hospitality by staff"
Pros: "Fast check in and arrival on time."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Staff were very polite"
Cons: "I didn’t like the seats on the airplane. They weren’t leather or smooth at all. Instead, the seats had orange fabric material on top of them that was very old and worn down. Also the blankets appeared to be reused. I received blankets that were opened from the original packaging. I’ve never road on a plane and experienced this level of discomfort in my life. I normally don’t like to leave bad ratings about companies because the staff were very polite and warm welcoming. I just strongly believe that Air India could use some remodeling for their planes. The level of comfortability is a must for me and I am not booking with this airline again because the seats are so old and snaggy. There were actual cotton balls(lint) on the seats, and I had to place magazines on top of the seat, in order to avoid feeling uncomfortable. The seats looked dirty and felt uncomfortable. And the blankets were old. Honestly, I would’ve preferred impolite staff, rather than experiencing discomfort for about 3 hours. I couldn’t wait to get off as I was going to my destination. And I absolutely dreaded the plane ride back as I was coming from my destination. Air India needs leather, or smooth fake leather seats for comfortability. Also, they need brand new unopened blankets to give to their guest, along with plastic cups as well. I hope this helps, and I hope Air India improves on this for the future."
Pros: "We were delayed for so long we missed our connection. They did put us up in a hotel for the night, though."
Cons: "Every time we asked when the flight would actually board, they just added 15 minutes rather than give an actual time."
Pros: "I found the movie selections to be average in all genres. Although i am a person of Indian origin but i saw okay collection in all genres. I would rate it 3 out of 5. They could do better in some regional movies like Bengali and Punjabi and add some latest hollywood movies around 6 months to 1 yr old. Latest hindi movie selection was Good."
Cons: "The screen quality was very very bad. Neither the touchscreen nor the remote worked. I literally had to pound on the screen to make a selection rather than a gentle touch. The crew tried fixing by resetting it from some control they had but didn’t work. I somehow managed to play a movie by pounding on screen since I had nothing to do on a 16 hr flight from SFO to Delhi. I am a very frequent international traveler and have never seen a similar problem or issue with any other airline."

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "We were grounded in London for 4 hours with no explanation. We were not allowed to leave the plane. We were so delayed that they served us a MEAL on the ground. Even upon takeoff, no explanation was given."
Cons: "We were grounded in London for 4 hours with no explanation. We were not allowed to leave the plane. We were so delayed that they served us a MEAL on the ground. Even upon takeoff, no explanation was given."

Pros: "I was pleased with the free blanket and pillow, however it was hard to get sleep when the pilot kept interrupting to tell the cabin unimportant information every 30 minutes for 8 hours. Entertainment selection was sparse and food was dry. The crew however was incredibly responsive and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aircraft old, business class terribly dirty. Hostess did not serve drink on entry. Power outlet not working. Flight cancelled and everyone told to leave aircraft without any effort to rebook business class customers."
Cons: "good"
Pros: "Food crew etc"

Cons: "Need more spacing between seats"
Cons: "My flght shouldn't have been rescheduled.... M facing lot of problems"
Cons: "The crew could have been friendlier and nicer."
Cons: "The food ahould be better"
Pros: "I did not realize the flight was a Fly Dubai plane until I got to the airport. I intentionally bought Emirates Airline ticket so that I did not have to go Fly Dubai. Fly Dubai just plain sucks."
Cons: "Make it clear this is a Fly Dubai flight and not Emirates. I feel deceived and cheated."
Pros: "Ground staff and cabin crew."
Cons: "Flight was over 3 hours late. No reasons provided"
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised at the roominess of the aircraft. We went expecting cramped spaces, but this was comfortable, even for a nearly 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I'll never ever be involved with Kayak, FlyDubai, and that pathetic Flight Network again. In thirty-two years of international travel to 80+ countries, I have never dealt with such nonsense. Thanks to all for ruining my holiday"
Pros: "Service everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seats with extra leg room were good"
Cons: "You van only buy food and drinks when the crew do their service rounds of which there were 2 on a flight of nearly 6 hours. 2 toilets for over 200 customers meant long queues in the narrow corridor. Staff were very rude when I asked if I could order a drink. You can pay for entertainment which is fine but you need to have wired earphones with you."

Cons: "Flight not in time and as its operated by fly dubai we are only allowed for one water otherwise you should pay"
Pros: "Flydubai does a great job overall. Food pre-ordered was decent--they've improved things."
Cons: "The little kid behind me who kept kicking the seat back."
Pros: "I had to stay forceibali at Dubai overnight they did not give my boarding pass earlier."
Cons: "Also flight attendant did not serve water or snack in time we had to call attendant many times."
Pros: "Nothing to mention here."
Cons: "I booked my flight with Emirates and their flights were good, food and crew was awesome. But I got surprised when flying back from Delhi, ground staff told me to board with Fly Dubai instead of Emirates. Why I wasn't got notified while booking the flight that there will be multiple airlines flight?"
Pros: "It was a short quick flight."
Cons: "It took a long time to check in and they lost my son's luggage."
Pros: "I made it to my destination safely and planes appeared to be new."
Cons: "Crew was late and unorganized in both Amman and Dubai. Entertainment system onboard did not work. Touch screen was inoperable. We waited on the tarmac shuttle nearly 15minutes because plane wasn't clean. Check-in line was ridiculously long and only one person working. Boarding zones we're ignored a crew member just yelled the name of the flight to signal boarding."
Pros: "It was on time, which is always a good thing!"
Cons: "The check in agent was not very helpful. He said, "Would you like window or aisle?" I said, "Window please". He says, "there are no windows. I can give you an aisle." I said, "but you asked me if I wanted a window." He said, "you are too late" (as though it's my fault... but I was one of the earlier ones at check-in and was not able to check-in online!). He continues, "I can give you an aisle in row 23". I say, "okay". Then after I leave the check-in counter and look at my boarding pass it says I have seat 11B. Neither window or aisle! In addition, I flew this flight as part of an Emirates ticket and it was not cheap, and yet the FlyDubai segment did not include a meal."
Pros: "No entertainment or beverages served."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The price and the service"
Pros: "All the notifications"
Cons: "Your notifications"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "My in-seat entertainment did not work."
Pros: "The seats are very bad. There was a problem between the navigator and the passenger because of the seats"
Pros: "everything went fine"
Cons: "food should be included"
Pros: "FlyDubai knows customer service. I would have given 15 stars out of 10 if it let me. I flew economy but was treated like first class. I will only book with FlyDubai for all trips. See you guys next month when I return to Dubai."
Cons: "One family 2 person!!! One in row 20 & the other row 32 very crazy"
Pros: "40 me on the flight knowing that that my connecting flight was cancelled stayed in Dubai for a day and a half without anyone helping me because I did not fly with Emirates to Alexandria horrible service customer service no one held I would never fly with this company ever again. Martha milagros Rivera"
Pros: "offers transit areas"
Cons: "not comfortable ..time-chairs. 1- chairs- hard and tight . 2- time-late always. not on the time like we are comming in 2 houers before debarture and waiting 2 or 3 houers more gust to inter the air plain.and take off.exp time to flay 1 .writen in the ticket take of effectlvely at 2 or 3 .this is haben to me in the last time i flay with this air line. 3- entrance suddenly changed. exp wrtin 11 in the ticket chang to 3 in the air port. and this openion for most people who tray flay d. thanks for your attention."
Cons: "They didn't even offer water. Worst hospitality. Ground staff have knowledge of anything. Worst experiance with Fly Dubai. Never recommend anybody."
Cons: "The best service"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing,"
Cons: "The seat was soaking wet due to faulty air conditioning. The screen was broken so I did not enjoy the TV that I paid for. Many of the menu items were not available."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had an emergency and wanted to delay my flight, but they asked me to pay for a penalty that was almost the tickets prices."
Pros: "The flight, crew members, pilots were amazing. Take off and landing couldn't be any smoother."
Cons: "This is second time I land in zone B, terminals F. The worst terminals and airport treatment by the staff ever. You can never get a complete answer or help, staff most don't care about your concern. No help can be assisted in any way possible. Few of the staff are professionals and know what their job is, others not at all. Bathrooms are disgusting, I have 12 hour layover, to sit in a lounge I need to pay 120$ , just to sit on a proper chair. In short you have money they welcome you, you don't , too bad find your way they don't care. Very over rated airport. Should be considered one of the worst, or maybe this terminal is made for unnecessary people, when their entrance phrase clearly states Dubai connecting the world. Connecting nothing. Simple money transfer isn't available, in case of emergency you need money, too bad sit yourself down and do nothing. Once again very over rated, and I will publish my review in all travel guides."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everthing"
Pros: "Flight attendants are so cheerful and helpful. Economy class is like business junior on every other airline."
Pros: "there was nothing special to like words "cheap airlines" got a really true meaning with Flydubai i will use then only if there will be no other possibility it is not about the crew it is about the "politics" of it"
Cons: "i am 6'8 tall so normal seats are not for me just wondering why having a free row ( no 15) of exit seats in the flight from Dubai to Zanzibar i needed to pay for it and on my way back row 15 was free of charge? one way charge one way not? something is far from easy to understand..and why having a combined flights (Emirates and Flydubai) i couldnt check in online? and will i get any response?"
Cons: "They failed to alert me that my flight was overbooked and that I would be moved to the next later flight. Need to sort out an sms or email alert system like other modern airlines."
Pros: "because of the low class airline I miss my connection to dallas with emirates airline ."
Cons: "Did not like any"
Pros: "I asked one of the flight attendants to let me sit closer to the bathroom as I needed to use restroom often and didn't wanted to bother other people. Once we took of she provided and open seat. That was really helpful"
Cons: "The checking in desk representatives had no authority to change or modify any seating arrangements. Also, the first row seats are left open so the flight attendants can charge 100 aed to anyone wants to seat on those seats. I found this to be silly. Also, their baggage policy is ridiculous. No baggage authorization for international travel! One have to buy it separately."
Pros: "Customer Services"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was okay - most flights don't include food, we were given a $12 box of food for free since it's a 6 hour flight. It was worth about $1"
Cons: "None of the touch screens functioned, but they did show ads There is literally no leg room for a normal person, but seats still fully recline (crushing your neighbors) They play a loud ad for their inflight entertainment before the flight (even though it was not working) They started drink service and then called the flight crew back - no water/drinks for 6 hours Announcements on the PA were totally inaudible"
