Superbe Service

Very friendly crew and nice comfortable seats for coach even.

Pros: "Great flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No need for improvement"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Cons: "You are a wonderful service"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Actually, pretty all right, so no recommendations."
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "All the teem all the services"
Cons: "Non"
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Operating remote control wasn’t working well ! It was frustrating !!"
Pros: "Fabulous cabin crew. Found me celery sticks for my Bloody Mary."
Cons: "Ran out of second meal option pretty quickly."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "—-"
Cons: "Water leaking into 52 and 53. Wet socks"
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Love the outfits the flight attendants wear Love the attention they give to all ...and basically everything else was above GOOD"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."
Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."
Pros: "Great service! While first time, I had a great experience."
Pros: "Service, food, beverages and entertainment are good with Emirates. Also boarding procedures are good."
Cons: "Seats in Emirates keep getting smaller"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Caring crew"
Pros: "Emirates staff gone out of way to accomodate my seat. Even all the counters were closed. Excellent passenger service."
Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
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: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."
Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"

Pros: "I was very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."
Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "they are a bit expensive compared to other airlines but given the service cant complain. hopefully they start A380 from SEA"
Pros: "They have several older planes. Horrible entertainment system. Picture quality is very poor. Screen doesn't respond to touch...overrated airline...."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Good value"
Pros: "The crew were lovely. Great service from crew and good food."

Pros: "Business class on A330. Service excellent."
Cons: "Crowd control at gate kind of chaotic. Colombo Airport rather disorganized."
Pros: "Super friendly and professional crew, clean airplane and great entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding in Colombo was typical for a lot of these airports I guess but I hate it. Go outside, cram in a bus, drive to the airplane and everyone fights to get in at once. Talking about an Airbus 330-300. Took an eternity to load"
Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "The boarding pass checker at the gate was all grumpy! Do folks in South Asia lose anything if they smile and greet a passenger? Perhaps she hates her job?!"

Cons: "Online check in system kept hanging, was worse than useless, I had to mske an international call to reserve my seat. Same issue with customer satisfation survey sent by airline..the links to the system continually hung and did not respond. I would never recommend thus airline until they solve this problem."
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "all the crew are very friendly and smile face"
Pros: "New biz class lay-flat seats were nice, though inconsistently-wide--I am 74 inches long, so was looking forward to the advertised 76-in layflat seats, but it turns out that when laid flat, the last foot or so of the seat is crammed in to a tiny cavity underneath the seat in front of you, so the only way to take full advantage of that length is to lay completely still on your back as if you were in a coffin."
Cons: "The crew woke me up multiple times despite my using their "only wake me for meals" sticker, and was generally a little brusquer than typical for biz class."

I was excited to fly Gulf Air as it was a new addition to Manchester. Unlike the airport they did not disappoint . Very attentive crew on 3 of 4 flights. Onboard not as nice as say BA 787 in my experience but okay. Staff were great and friendly . Only complaint was outbound from Bahrain. Plane half empty 😀 Staff AWOL most of time, Food edible (mostly) Definitely better than BA and American. In all a good experience. Good low prices considering post covid Excellent baggage allowance . I have booked again with them but NOT booked through last-minute.com despite return trip going to plan I will NEVER use LM con and advise you to avoid them even if they offer low prices I have reported them to Kayak Thousands of passengers can not be wrong about LM con

Lost my luggage I’m very disappointed

Very disinterested crew and poor service throughout flight.

Never again. Lost my item because of their stupidity

Never again

all good. crew wasnt attentive to the announcements they were making about the flight. made several mistakes at several tines while announcing destination, arrival time. first officer made this mistake too.

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

Pros: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal. My ticket was from Riyadh to Bahrain, but when I went to the airport, I could not get on the plane, and the reason was that the flight was going to Dubai, not to Bahrain. Is there any solution to this issue, And where is my money? I will send you the ticket in the e-mail, and at the airport they said that it is not strange on your site that the traveler falls into this problem, how can you sell tickets to a particular destination without making sure, who bears the responsibility now?"

The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Next time try to provide a good offer.

Everything fast.

Good

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

Excellent service provided!

Clean, timely, professional.

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.

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."
Pros: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Good airline. Flight was delayed due to weather"
Pros: "Budget Indian airline so was good. Good crew .Bus on and off tarmac , Basic food and paid for but fine. Good legroom in XL seats and std seemed ok too compared to some Australian airlines .Was on time so thats all that really mattered"
Cons: "I got sick so I had to leave India. I tried for 5 days in a row to cancel this flight but the cleartrip.com website is just a bad labirinth. You are not able to cancel the flight from mobile( when I was in India), you are not able to access the website from Europe."

Pros: "Punctuality and professional service."
Cons: "All good."
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."

Cons: "No comments."
Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Seating could be better. the cushions would come off"
Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"

Flight is very nice

International passengers were asked to claim their baggage and walk all the way to domestic departures and with elder people it became more worst journey to take the connecting flight to Hyderabad. other flights does have this sort of process, the checking baggage goes to the destination location rather than having it claimed at delhi. Air India earlier did not have this process, but with new management they made it worst nightmare for international passengers. we decided not to fly with Air India anymore inspite of our 20years of bondage. All the best Air India, with your current process, looks like you cannot compete with other airlines who give more options and better process.

Service of crews has improved after Tata group took over . Keep up the good work. Improve the food with healthy diet options. Good snacks provided . Over all very good service 👍👍

Overall quite helpful and easy travel. The aircraft interior required significant service. Poor functioning screens and erratic response to switches. Gave up on that!

Flight was very affordable and the airplane crew was professional. But the flight was dirty. Hadn't been cleaned properly. There was food waste from previous flight next to the seat. Entertainment/TV screens were not working for the majority of the passengers. No headset was provided on some seats. Food was okay. If you want to save money fly with them, but be prepared for compromises.

Both ways the food was terrible & entertainment was zero since the screens & remotes were broken. I advise do not fly Air India

Need more crew members

There was nothing that was a Wow factor. The plane was late by 3 hrs. Initially it was delayed by one hr which was moved to 2 hours. We boarded the plane with an expectation of 2 hours delay and then had to be in the plane for one more hour before it took off. I have travelled in Air India ( only because of patriotism!!!!) many times even though every time I travelled there was a problem. I travelled most recently in November 2021 and May 2022. Both times the plane was delayed. In November my return trip was delayed by 14 hours. The staff was totally unorganized and extremely rude. Same trip the connecting plane from Delhi to Jammu was cancelled. The planes are breaking apart and are dirty...... I still travel in Air India with hope and very high expectation from Tatas.......

It is 2hr 5 min flight and didn’t expected any entertainment.

Sr. citizen should get priority in boarding and vice eras. Wheelchair staff should be increased

Short flight. Very good food.

Luggage missing 😒😒

The flight was overcrowded, the pre-selected meal was not available and on top, it was delayed by more than 40 minutes

Pros: "This is a state run airline. The only thing that was good was the itinerary."
Cons: "The gentry always sucks"
Cons: "Better quality of food"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Crew was extra helpful and kept checking on me when I had a fever."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They are very active."
Pros: "We had taken extra legroom seats and so the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The audio system was very poor. Could not watch a single movie. On such long haul flights, the entertainment system needs to be proper."
Pros: "The seat could have been bit more spacious. The ground staff at New York were not cooperative."
Cons: "In flight crew needs to learn some manner not all but few crews were rude."
Pros: "Flight not full, so I had the row to myself."
Cons: "Seats are narrow and rows close together. Plane interior was dated and grungy."
Pros: "Seating space is good"
Cons: "Lack of professionalism in the crew. The food was mediocre"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They gave me a middle seat although I had been promised an aisle seat. They fumigated the plane with bug spray before landing and that made me nauseated."
Pros: "On time. Great service, luggage came early."
Pros: "Seating is okay"
Cons: "Worst entertainment - Touch won't work, Remote won't work, Crew was not able to fix this. Long flight Worst staff. Crew never care about to our requests."
Cons: "Never shows up on scheduled time. Consisten delays misleading the passengers"
Pros: "Web check-in helped as we did not have to wait in line. Food was better this time. Entertainment system worked for both of us except for my neighbor."
Cons: "Please check carry-on size as people bring large bags and then place Hem side ways as it will not fit straight in. People put their extra large purse, Hackett, sweaters in the overhead cabin instead of keeping it with them. This eats ups space for carry-on."
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."
Pros: "crew service"
Cons: "entertainment . TV was not working"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air India cancelled our flight out of JFK "Because of the weather" as i was looking at planes taking off there to a perfectly clear blue sky. They do not invest in deicing equipment, presumably. I received a generic auto-text that the flight was cancelled and told to call them. After waiting on hold for almost 30 minutes, I was told there was absolutely nothing they could do to rebook us anywhere within the next 5 days. Our only option was to accept their full cancellation of both the outgoing and return trips. Completely miserable experience."
Cons: "even at the start of the flight the bathrooms were extremely dirty"
Cons: "Out of every flight I take with Air India 50% of the time TV did not work.. which made me stare in air for 14 hrs.. and food is always very stale.. never feels fresh !!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. I didnt lose any bags."
Cons: "Everything else. Entertainment system was not working, food was ok. Old , filthy seat covers. Cabin started to give you a feeling that you are flying in a trash bin after a few hours into the journey. Not many options for drinks. Crew non attentive and callous. It really needs a facelift considering it is representing the country in some ways when operating abroad."
Pros: "food crew"
Cons: "not working earphones broken food tray"
Cons: "Additionally, my friend travelling with me got a business class upgrade for free which the agent did not entertain when I asked. The seat assignment was with a severely obese person and they did not change when I asked, though the flight was pretty empty and people were using 3 seats to sleep and fly all the way back."
Pros: "The schedule of the flight. Good legroom compared to other international airlines. Better elbow space."
Cons: "1. Very bad entertainment system. Unable to use entertainment system with remote or by direct finger clicks. The delay between clicks and the action response on screen is too huge...these look like systems from last century...please upgrade !!!! 2. Crew members are not courteous. They ignore requests made by passengers. Looks like they just hate all passengers in their hearts."
Pros: "Courteous crew, spacious with a lot of legroom. Comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Food was very soggy and mediocre. Toilets and nearby areas were smelly from the beginning of the flight. Miles to go with respect to cleanliness and food quality. Very basic and buggy entertainment system."
Pros: "Professional pilot, Direct flight ( less flying time)"
Cons: "Professionalism, crew, the airport manager Newyork, The food is no where stand in the international market. Lazy and old mentality of government based management overall from Head office to ground crew from every steps. As an Indian we want to see our Air line a five star."
Pros: "Air India did an excellent job and made the flight comfortable."
Cons: "Bag was wrongy tagged, received it after 4 days with $500 dollars worth of stuff missing. Seats are all broken, do not recline. TV systems do not work and are all stuck! Horrible never travel air india again"
Pros: "I liked the food served"
Cons: "No crew member came to collect the jacket from psgrs and finally I had to ask for it. Your inflight supervisor and at times even commander used to come around and enquirer about the passenger comfort quality of food etc. none this time. Seats do not recline fully some one needs to do a preflight check."
Pros: "It left close to on time"
Pros: "Since my lasr travel inn Air India 6-7 years ago, it has improved a lot. I travelled from chicago to Delhi (non-stop) in May 2017 with my family. Flight is on time. Crew is younger and energetic unlike my last trip. Food is fine. Toilets are clean. Couple of times, They were asking to provide feedback by filling some form which tells me they are genuinely trying to listen and improve further."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I had the worst possible experience flying Air India back from Delhi to NY. I was at the Delhi airport, cleared all the different levels of security and was provided with my boarding pass. After which I went to the gate looking for a seat during which time it was announced that the flight has been delayed by a few hours. I arrived at the gate and there was no more seats left, so I decided to go sit right outside the gate as I did not want to stand for 3 hours especially since I was unwell and was taking antibiotics for my severe cold and sore throat. I sat down on a reclining chair right outside the gate during which time Air India apparently preponed the flight and apparently announced my name on the loud speaker. I say apparently because I do not know if I possibly dosed off fora few minutes or this actually happened. The reason I say this is because after I missed my flight and went to the counter, the representative and even the manager repeatedly told me that the flight was never delayed. When, with a strong voice, I told them that how can they lie about that they apologized and said yes the flight has been delayed. The fact that hey can lie to my face makes me believe that they did not even announce my name. Furthermore, after they announced my name they even had time to unload my baggage from the flight. If they had time to do all of that, they they should have continuously announced my name. I was right outside the gate, I would have heard it! After all this, they refused to put me on the next flight. They said the next one available was in 4 days and would cost me $1,100! I had to run around at 3am in the airport trying to figure out how to get back home while I was sick! They refused to help me in any way. DO NOT FLY AIR INDIA, THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS!! How can you leave a passenger who has a stamped boarding pass and is sitting right outside the allotted gate! Did they expect me to stand outside the gate for 3 hours at 1am if their were no seats available there!"
Cons: "Seat changed by airline with out my knowledge"
Pros: "Crew served with grace. Your crew is doing whatever they can to serve best, but the poor plane infrastructure, indiscipline and chaotic boarding process is terrible at DEL. This part of the business process requires re-training, enforcement."
Cons: "Toilets did not have toilet seat cover papers, very limited supplies of tissue paper. Paper towels were provided instead of tissue paper and seat cover papers. No wonder these toilets clog so often. It's a long haul flight almost 161/2 hours; should attend this need. Upon inquiry from crew, I came to know that flight services from DEL to SFO does not provide toilet seat covers; while SFO to DEL does? Entertainment system hardly works; three of the entertainment systems at 34 row were not working. Infrastructure seating, cushions are old, suggest updating/refurbishing these for such a long flight. Food menu should be reconsidered, especially bread - I still don't understand why are you serving bread roll with Indian food, mismatch, and also would suggest executive management to make surprise checks on the food quality - hopefully they will understand."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Flight was, as usual, late - a typical of Air India. No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with no ground staff on sight. 10 minutes past the departure time, 2 personnel show up informing Pax that the flight was running an hour late. Food was stale. I would rather you not serve any food and knock off a few $$ from the fare, rather than serving distasteful and stale food. Overall, bloody pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing great about this flight. Seats were not clean."
Cons: "Seats are not great Could sure use better maintenance."
Pros: "i was under impression - kayak is booking the tickets"
Cons: "when i want to reschedule the tickets - vayama charged a lot of money, and my total booking amount just went into waste"
Cons: "Crew members did not do their job well. They were not in service continuously for 3-4 hours. Its like they will serve one meal and then passengers will be on their own for next 3-4 hours. They never repeated any alcohol or soft drinks. Just one time and that too at the beginning. The aircraft was out of water for last 4-5 hours. It was like hell and even restrooms were part of it. Complete mess it was and I will never go with air India."
