Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."
Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."

They gave her a toy, asked for her name, and checked on us often. They also gave my husband and I an option for early food service so that one of us could help our daughter eat. The movie selection was great. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. And we arrive half an hour early both directions!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane cabin, the ease of seat selection, friendly helpful cabin crew, quality and choice of food, facilities in the toilets (mouth wash, hand cream, etc), choice of entertainment, early arrival, the price."
Cons: "That I could not afford to travel first class! which must have been marvellous when economy so good."
Pros: "Consistently good food."
Cons: "Entertainment system sometimes froze, didn't remember where I was in the movie."
Pros: "Spacious, comfortable seat"
Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Pros: "They treat you very nicely on Singapore Airlines - from warm washcloths to wine with your meal. Seats are comfortable and the long flight not so wearing."
Cons: "My husband reacted to the spicy beef/rice dish served for breakfast."
Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."

it would have been great to be disembarked from an Air Bridge instead of being bussed around the airport after a 16 hour Flight.

Cabin services as expected from a reputed airline. Not impressed with the food though. Excellent ground service in Doha.

I changed the flight

Wheel chair arrangements was not unorganized & poorly executed at Doha Airport

The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution.

Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change of the flight"
Pros: "crews are ok. but they run out chicken entre. awful."
Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Boarding its took along , food it's bad"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Cons: "The 14 hour flight lacked wifi access and there was no sense of importance to investigate by the crew. In an era when downtime is utilized to stay ahead of work, strong wifi is one of the most crucial requirements for me to elect an airline. Even if all else is good, poor wifi is a deal killer."
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "The crew and comfort of the flying ship is excellent."
Cons: "No one stopped several children from screaming almost the entire flight. I’m thinking they need to put all families with children younger than 8 behind a partition. HAHA!! Just kidding. But that was very frustrating."
Pros: "The food was good. Supposed to be Halaal (Kosher) for the Muslim population who have dietary restrictions. The economy cabin was comfortable enough. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful. We had a very short connecting time (1 hour) at Doha. They put a ground staff to receive all the ten passengers who needed to make that connection."
Cons: "The check-in person could have easily been a little less difficult with the slight over weight of the carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
Cons: "My baggage was lost!"
Pros: "Nice touches like the giddy bag of toiletries and air freshener in the bathroom. I appreciated the multiple food offers"
Cons: "I would like more healthy food sides likes vegetables. There were a lot of carbs"
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "Nothing to be liked on this Flight"
Cons: "Poor Service, they were even out of food."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight crew are all amazing and provide excellent customer service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "Overall services"
Cons: "Checking in was very lengthy and boring. More check in counters could ease the situation."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "The flight attendants are always friendly and helpful"
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."
Cons: "Main course is not enough"
Pros: "The airline in general was good, provided a kit with socks, ese plugs,toothbrush and other essentials,good movie choices, overall customer service. They had free wifi which was amazing!!"
Cons: "We took 2 long flights one from morrocco to Qatar and Qatar to dallas. The food on the flights was not the best, one the first one they ran out of chicken meal and only had fish left which was gross, for such a big airline you would also think they give a snack in between meals but they do not.also after giving you the food it took a long time for them to pick up the tray which I thought was unusual"
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Cons: "Dirty old plane"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Pros: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Meal plan customer service"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "A couple more inches leg room than most airlines was welcome, They airline and crew were very good and the Doha airport very nice."
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Pros: "The personnel were at the CAI Airport and in the plae were just wonderful. I hope i will have the same experience the second leg if the trip from DOH to DFW"
Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Cons: "Seats very cramped, food was horrible glad I brought my own, passenger lights didn't work on whole row on a 13 hr flight. The tv on both flight cut out during middle of movie"

The wifi wasn’t working, waste of money. There was no space for carry in baggage, had to hold all the valuables and the carry in baggage was went to cargo

Great cabin crews, great service, great response from the officials!

The flights were good. service was good. food could be little better.

Meal portion used to be bigger.

It was really excellent!I suggest everyone should try Kayak.

Food was very bad.

Pros: "Too narrow seats"
Cons: "The cabin crews were not supportive enough - delayed service and sometimes even denied service like drinks"
Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "They were very supportive. Thanks."
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "The food and the crew way of speaking to people"
Pros: "Cabin crew services"
Cons: "Food could have better"
Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."
Pros: "Everything about it"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I felt very pampered!"
Pros: "Emirates is everything we can wish"
Pros: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Very polite & helpful crew & agents.... both at Dhaka Airport & the flight. Conditions to work in Dhaka Airport are difficult & yet your ground personnel were calm & helpful with a smile on their faces!"
Cons: "Very little isle space!!! Now I know how sardines are packed!! Did you put in more seats? Seems like you have!! With no consideration for the simple, basic comfort of your passengers!! Just because most of the passengers were Bangladeshis you DID NOT have to serve only what was a very poor excuse of Bengali food!! A choice or better quality food would have been appreciated!!"
Cons: "The flight attendances were rude. Lot of mosquitoes inside the aircraft. Mosquitoes were every where. The aircraft were dirty and did not clean. under the seat trash, passenger food table was dirty, I had to ask crew member for napkin to clean. I would not recommend any one to take emirates. certainly i would not fly emirates again."
Pros: "Good service upon check in and in flight."
Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."
Pros: "Onboard comfort and entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding from Dhaka in business is worst than economy class from most location. There were mosquitos in the plane, food quality was not thrilling and crew was caring but needs a little more experience for business class."
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "better than super stinky American carriers"
Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"
Cons: "I understand that the cabin crew’s job focus is not to serve drinks and food to passengers. However, I would’ve expected well-mannered employees from Emirates. I was on an aisle seat, a steward bumped on my arm quite roughly and he merely continued walking. Not even a word was said."
Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"
Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."
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: "Timeliness, behavior of crew. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Food quality, seat sizes, comfort of the seats is not good. There were belligerent passengers that kept on drinking alcohol on the flight and even lit up a cigarette in the restroom. The persons involved should have been arrested for causing a disturbance on the flight."
Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."
Cons: "I found out that my payment was not verified as I arrived at the airport and I wasn't informed my email or any kind of way about it. It was a total disaster. Deeply disappointed. Regards"
Pros: "The air conditioning worked properly"
Cons: "You asked for a drink and they never return☹️"
Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Reservation and boarding process are good. The condition of the aircraft is excellent. Onboard service is also good."
Cons: "The taste of food served was far below standard. I had hard time eating their food. Emirates used to serve better food in the past but in recent time the quality has worsen."
Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly and fast when you turn on the help sig."
Cons: "I can't handle any kind of spicness in my food. I understand you guys try to give out food similar to the place your visiting, but I wish you guys gave out an option of non spicy food just like you do for vegetarians. I would also like to suggest that your crew members come more frequently to give out water. And the last thing I want to say is the most important, Boarding the plane was such a hassle. I would like to suggest that a crew member should come out and organize the way people are going to be boarding. They can say something like, "seats # A-C can you place stand on the left and Busniness Class on the right" instead of having everyone crowd to the front and be pushing each other. Or have those rope lines like they do at banks and make the people form a line."
Pros: "I enjoyed excellent service of this airline"
Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."
Cons: "Crews were rude"
Pros: "Check-in counter associate was very rude and the wait was too long"
Cons: "The wait and the treatment without any greetings or respect"
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Cons: "Boarding was so messy. Not organized at all. Discipline among passengers and ground crew is missing!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "It was too cold and the blanket was too light"
Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "spray"
Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Need better training."
Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Better movies and free internet in flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Foods were not good. Tray and seat was dirty. Sri Lanka should put in International passengers to good hotel and not shady slum hotel."
Pros: "Flight attendant were amazing. My wife was not well and we ask for blanket. Cabin crew provided us with one."
Cons: "In flight food selection should have some variety for three hours flight. Should significantly improve Sri Lanka Lounge as the place was not the neat and clean, as it was run by one staff alone. Food in the lounge were sitting for hours and not freshly made."
Pros: "Had more room than on BA flight to London"
Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment. Some features, such as the flight tracker, didn’t work"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Business class seat is OK, not great - fine for 3.5 hour flight"
Pros: "Not bad comparatively morning flt kolkata to cmb.crew is good.clean"
Pros: "The staff was very helpings ."
Cons: "The way they are Waigh the luggage was like weighing gold."
Pros: "Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food."
Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."
Pros: "Super on time"
Pros: "Enjoyed the tasty food."
Cons: "gaps between seats were unbearable and have to think twice whether to travel again UL 208."

Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and attentive, I was quite impressed with the food, and they served a good white wine. I was happy to find an excellent choice of movies, tv shows and music with a simple, intuitive system for playing them."
Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."
Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."
Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2. Crew was asking options i food ( non veg ) but they ere delivering what they had , question is why they asked option when they don't have option of serving. 3. Crew was pathetic. They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."
Pros: "Courteous & helpful crew."
Cons: "Terrible seats and headrests. Highly uncomfortable for an 11 hour journey especially for senior citizens."
Pros: "Staff.. food"
Cons: "SEATS... I flew with other airlines also but this aero plane has worst seats I even sat on.. My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."
Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Flight started on time, landed earlier, nice crew and good food good food."
Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."
Pros: "Good veggie food, courteous and attentive staff and, quick transit"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could be improved - most categories fo TV shows had only 2 or 3 episodes"
Pros: "Great service and friendly people"
Cons: "The plane was late"
Pros: "Like fying in the dark ages. Our first leg crew did a great job and offered first person information about what not to miss on our tour. Pretty much everything else went from bad to worse!"
Cons: "Our bags got lost on arriving flight and in this day of advanced technology and airport security, no one could even tell “where” our two pieces of luggage was located for 4 days. Needless to say our one time trip to Sri Lanka didn’t happen the way we planned."
Pros: "Boarding by seat row, the cheats who tried to board ahead of their seat row were manoeuvred to the back of the queue. Splendid tactics!"
Cons: "Food and seating were reasonable for economy, that’s what I paid for."
Pros: "I liked the punctuality of the flight, the courtesy of the crew, the in flight meals, the comfort and the in flight entertainment with a good choice of movies and entertainment."
Pros: "Crew are very polite. Fast response."
Cons: "Entertainment for movies no so much update."
Pros: "Stuff is friendly, helpful and supportive. Both on the ground and in the plane"
Cons: "It would have been nice to be offered a lunch during the 2h transit in Colombo as it was lunch hours."
Pros: "They have great direct service, and moderately priced. And fantastic flight times."
Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."
Pros: "The staff was super friendly and professional, the entertainment was great for such a short flight and I felt like the airplane was cleaner than normal."
Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"
Cons: "Food of course"
Pros: "The staff were nice."
Cons: "Everything except the staff"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"
Pros: "Nice flight, attentive crew."
Cons: "My bags were screened three times. Really? Once through security, we were told the gate wasn't open so we were escorted back out. And then had to go through security again. Chaos. No lines just pushing and shoving, people crawling under the rope and cutting the line. No matter the flight, the airport over shadows every thing."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Bus boarding"
Pros: "the ladies were beautiful in their saris, flight left on time, boarding was easy, lunch was decent and price was good. would fly again!"

Boarding was NOT good enough. Our cabin luggage was pushed back to check-in in the pretext of packed flight. But eventually there were empty seats on the flight. Also, we booked seats on exit rows... But seems something got changed and we got same seats alright, but they were no longer on exit row (& that was empty eventually). Flight claimed to have a travel time of 1 hour 50 minutes, but it took around 2:20 minutes (seems Indigo has a different clock). 😂

Bag check is not as smooth as can be at CST Terminal 2. Passengers are advised to print out and attach boarding passes at home in a bid to avoid crowding at self-service kiosks given the Covid-19 public health crisis. However attendants then say tags need to be re-printed at the counter as the ones provided by the airline at the airport are more secure. While the check-in process is aided by the helpful staff, Indigo Airlines could do a better job of providing more self-service kiosks and clearer guidance during the online purchase process. Suggest calling ahead to confirm situation on the ground.

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Cons: "Extremely bumpy take off and landing. The pilot could do better."
Pros: "We arrived at the departure gate at 8 am, to be told it was closed for a flight at 8:25 am. We had to purchase a replacement flight 12 hours later. Same airline indigo. Flight 6E6314. Two tickets"
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: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Good airline. Flight was delayed due to weather"
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: "Boarding"
Cons: "Co passengers"
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Better comfortable plane"
Pros: "Punctuality, cabin crew and cleanliness."
Cons: "Check in at Mumbai needs to be better coordinated."
Pros: "Cleanliness, and punctuality."
Cons: "Choice of food available. Since it was lunch time, proper lunch type food should be available, and not just snacks."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"
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: "No, not really, especially the boarding crew. Where was chaos and signs of lack of planning. Gate changed towards the end and sequential boarding wasn’t done properly."
Cons: "1. On time performance, flight started 1.5 hours late, 2. Boarding procedure was unplanned and the gate resembled a fish market."
Cons: "cost of the seats can be reduced or it can be free"
Pros: "Excellent ground crew and flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Seating could be better. the cushions would come off"
Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"
Pros: "6E Prime was value for money. But food promised was not given as a part of it despite asking."
Cons: "Worst crew. Very arrogant"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Offers"
Pros: "Ground reservation and check in crew were amazing."
Cons: "Waited close to an hour for collecting baggage at the terminal"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and caring towarda a patient."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 mints"
Pros: "Ok time"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Crew was professional and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "The seats are very weak and anyone touching on the backside would feel as if they are directly touching you."
Pros: "Time from landing to collecting our luggage was the fastest we’ve ever experienced."
Cons: "Ran out of food options by the time the trolley reached us. This was a problem as we hadn’t had time for lunch"
Cons: "Flight delayed and no info"
Pros: "Good and friendly staff.Food is good"
Cons: "Need to get more organized with lines. Discipline at lines should be followed . They kept on changing gates once I understand twice is okay not 4 times . Also no point on charging outrageous amounts for excessive baggage for international customers."
Pros: "Flight Stewart’s Response"
Cons: "Ground staff highly untrained & indifferent"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Small and hard"
Cons: "Boarding process can be improved. Clarity of announcements from crew needed as well"
Cons: "Nothing to remark"
Cons: "delay"
Pros: "Very smooth trip. Efficient control"
Cons: "Boarding was late so flight was 20 minutes late at Delhi"
Pros: "I flew from Kolkata to Bangkok on 14D. The service was on time."
Cons: "LImited selection on their menu, and what they have were very overpriced, even more expensive than on European low-cost carriers"
Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink. I understand it's a cheap airline and that happens, but would have appreciated telling us ahead of time. Also couldnt get boarding passes online. Will avoid this airline in the future."
Pros: "Cabin staff very efficient and pleasant. Very punctual flight times. What food I purchased was fresh and reasonably priced."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "What a great airline! On time, safe, good service, and really cool brand."
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed repeatedly, so I never got on board. I drove to Delhi instead to catch my flight from there. Indigo made no arrangements to help anyone get anywhere that I could see."
Pros: "Nothing much. Typical low cost airline with low level of customer care and interaction"
Cons: "I have already stated what I felt."
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: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"
Cons: "the wait in the hall at the gate in Jaipur was not very comfortable"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
