Ok

Cons: "Food was okay, seats were less so. Not enough leg room."
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"
Pros: "Regular A330 was substituted for a 787 dreamliner."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "I was made to gate check my hand luggage."
Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."
Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"
Pros: "Crew is so helping and attentive , not like american or european carriers . Inflight dining options in economy was like premium economy"
Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"
Pros: "the staff were friendly and accomplished good travel nothing was too much for them."
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "Same as earlier flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."
Pros: "At gate boarding was I inefficient and managed professionally. On board entertainment was glitchy as the movies paused and skipped the entire flight."
Cons: "The staff were not trained well and unaware of how to conduct proper flow of customer screening."
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."

Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"
Pros: "Like before,Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this 4 hour long flight Made us feel really at home!"
Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."
Pros: "Stewards and Air hostess were great. The food was served well. The flight was kept clean and had a great entertainment system. Overall it was a great experience."
Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"
Cons: "One restroom was out of service"
Pros: "Leg room was relatively better than the Doha to Atlanta leg."

Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Have flown emirates and etihad business - now sampled the best by far. Qatar's a380 was incredible but the a330 on wind leg whilst not as nice was mademupmfor by the best crew I have experienced ever - WOULD NOT HESITATE TO FLY AGAIN"
Cons: "The Oryx system lackedmin recent movies ....that's the only complaint"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is excellent. Some of the grew also excellent. Had excellent seat 68d. Lots of leg room. Aircraft looked brand new."
Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation. No apology. Stuck in transit with nothing to do. Not impressed at all. Boarding also delayed. Food on this flight was very poor."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Pros: "Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)"

Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"

Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "Spacious single seat Plenty of handy storage Pajamas provided Quiet cabin Great service Lounge wonderful as ever Not woken until last minute"
Cons: "Boarding a bit haphazard"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Okay"
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "Better crew members"
Cons: "Seats and food.. This should be the last travel with Qatar airways."
Cons: "Chairs very stiff, tight smpace"
Pros: "Everything. The service, the staff, the comfort. It was just a pleasure flying with Qatar"
Pros: "Attentive service"
Cons: "The waiting room in Qatar airport was freezing! So many cold people who were not properly attired as you don't expect arctic conditions at 1am!"

Vistara had wrong information about the required pcr test I needed to transit Dubai. This cost me much stress and $40. Other than that, great experience on both airlines.

On landing, we had to wait for the bus while most of the aerobridges were empty. Bad experience

Make seat comfortable in premium economy ,food better!

Cabin temperature was too low and uncomfortable

The trip was booked on a Premium Economy, I was moved to standard economy with no compensation. When I boarded the flight crew had already made someone else sit in my place who were reluctant to give me my seat. Quite a few people were found not wearing masks and crew did nothing about it. No choice of food in spite of me with a standard economy ticket that includes the option of food.

Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.

No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change

Comfort and safety. At least packaged food could be served to Business Class passengers.

Surprisingly pleasant experience despite Covid-19 times. Food was too good!

Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee

Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."

Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."
Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"
Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"
Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."

Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"
Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."
Pros: "Not at all"

Pros: "All was okay and easy."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."
Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"
Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."
Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."
Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy is good"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."
Pros: "The air hostesses were very warm and friendly."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delay that was not good"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Wonderful staff and nice, clean airplane. I will use your airlines in the future now."
Pros: "I thought I was taking a budget airline but ended up feeling like I was on a top notch airline. Comfortable seats, good snacks, good services. No complaints and would definitely fly again"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"
Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."
Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."
Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."

Checkin receptionist people could have served better to customers. They won't care about customers . They think that their job is permanent. Service given while checkin process was very bad. Fire them from job

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Missing a bag , longer wait time at Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "in the AUH-MAD leg, i thought the headrests were great—perfect for sleeping"
Cons: "in the MNL-AUH leg, the touchscreen entertainment system didn’t always work"
Pros: "Departed on time. Seat was ok."
Cons: "Check-in and boarding was too long and confusing. Too much to walk between one place to next. Overkill on security and baggage check. Food was terrible. Second full meal was chopped up to just a salad and main dish...no bread or dessert. Air hostess could be more pleasant. Flight was late 1 hr."
Pros: "Only process of boarding."
Cons: "Everything else was not close to other comparative airlines. Food was horrible. Just FYI, cottage cheese is not the only food for Asian vegetarians. There actually are many other options. Not enough options for entertainment. The seats for economy class were way too crammed. With the growth in technology, it would be helpful to have a USB port to charge. ELL phones."
Cons: "Warm beer"
Pros: "Food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "The food wasn't great specially the breakfast vegetarian option . The staff should be more friendly and the options have a long layover"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "So i was with ticketing requesting for seating, and she said run run your flight is leaving , i did not get proper seat and i ran to find out it was NYC flight and not DC. I asked more than one Eithihqd personeel and they did not know the difference bewtween Nyac flight and DC flight . Then came back to request for seating and they again made believe my security will be declines if i waste timein requesting seating. Got a flight between 2 males for a 15 hour flight and a run across the airport with a heart problem . I will never fly Eithihqd and also will not recommend to anyone"
Pros: "The crew was very kind to my seatmate who needed help filling out some forms. Though they didn't speak her language they found someone nearby who could help."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess"
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "The food was not good. I had ordered low calorie and I got uncooked chicken and uncooked vegetables"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"
Pros: "The crew were outstanding."
Cons: "They only had two choices of food: either vegetarian or chicken. The number of dishes were small as well. The “salad” was horrible."
Pros: "The direct flight availability and price for a short notice."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Checked in online and booked seats that had extra legroom. When boarding the plane seats had been changed and we were separated. Not happy about it. Agree with other reviewers re Abu Dhabi, not the most pleasant experience in the connections hall. A bit all over the place!"
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks offered often and tasted pretty decent."
Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."
Pros: "Nice meals, good entertaintment, comfort sleep"
Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Cons: "Bad food"
Pros: "Travelled last minute since my mom passed away. Etihad upgraded us to Bussiness class for asking! It was a very comfortable journey in hard times."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was horrible"
Pros: "The head flight attendant went the extra mile to ensure we got aisle seats together after our seats had been changed since we checked in. Very happy that she went the extra mile to pull it off. Movies and food were very good."
Cons: "We didn't like that our confirmed aisle seat had been switched since we checked in and were confirmed. It was uncomfortable for a while trying to solve this with the ground staff, but they put the message through and I mentioned it again and it was resolved in the end."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Crew was a bit harsh."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish. A beautiful experience."
Cons: "Nothing-everything was amazing on this flight. We boarded a little late, but made up the time during transit. Ground staff in Perth airport was excellent."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "One of the flights ran out of blankets. It was freezing in the cabin"
Cons: "not a choice of Indian movies;"
Pros: "I never ever going choose and recommend any one for the airline"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "My bags didn't make it. I had to sit away from my husband as someone had sat in his seat and clearly wasn't going to move. You now have to pay to get an exit row like budget airlines and I had to go two days without my bag. Total nightmare. Then I couldn't recheck in to change seAts online. Food was disgusting."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food selection.in the morning, you don't want to eat dinner food. Should be breakfast."
Pros: "we like the services....coming from LA to ABU DHABI time between flight was only 50 minutes but security check was really fast....overall We liked ETIHAD very much...a hassle free experince"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The flight was awesome. A380 is thebest"
Cons: "They didnt have A380 from abu dhabi to SFO which was the longest part of my trip."
Pros: "Travel bag (with toothpaste, socks, etc) was given."
Cons: "1. Food choices from NYC to Abu Dhabi were only lamb or Indian cuisine (chicken kofta or veg), no seafood option. Very few extras were given with the meal or between meals (no fruit, candy bars, peanuts, etc. on the flight). 2. Entertainment was stopped 30 minutes before arrival."
Cons: "non-terminal gate (bus ride) boarding;"
Pros: "Seat was nice enough for coach. First flight did not have usb charging for phone / a big negative. Prescreening for US Customs in Abu Dhabi was excellent. Finished the flight and let right out into the airport terminal in San Francisco. A great investment."
Cons: "Food was MUCH worse than past Etihad flights. Entertainment was too thematic for the olympics - too many movies about sports. I ran out of things to watch, and, that rarely happens for me. Seems they're not paying for good films, or, their choices are off. Started feeling a little more like American Airlines, which I hate."
Cons: "Cabin luggage with sensitive/delicate items were forced to be checked in for 2nd leg of the journey. Cabin luggage upon retrieval at destination was scratched/dirty and one glass item inside was broken. Recommend Etihad provides complimentary luggage wrapping to prevent such issues. Additionally, crew was unable to manage noisy kids, and a request for ear plugs was ignored. Recommend Etihad provide affected travelers with ear plugs to manage the noise, and that the crew undergo training to better manage problematic parents w/kids."
Pros: "Nothing specific..."
Cons: "I know this sector is can be tough on the crew... But got a very routine service with not much eye contact... For my coffee was given one sugar/creamer... Before I could ask for another the steward moved away... Didnt bother to check if I am fine...., Also, they ran out of water around landing time :( Entertainment was not available until after 10 or 15 mins take off and cut 10 mins before landing... Felt like second class..."
Pros: "I got sick, and I felt faint and and nauseous. When I told a member of the crew, he took me back to the galley and let me lie with oxygen until I felt better. The rest of the crew continued to check on me the rest of the flight."
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good..."
Cons: "Nothing really.."
Cons: "Crew"
Cons: "We landed and then we stayed in the plane for another 45 minutes. Then we had to wait another 45 minutes for our baggage to arrive."
Pros: "Air crew was pleasant and polite. Only silver lining."
Cons: "Flight got held up due to bad weather at ABU and had to spend a few hours in the shabby airport before being boarded on a later flight that landed at 3:40 AM, instead of original 8:40 PM!!! Jet lag compounded due to screwed up timing. had to wait till dawn till family could pick me up. Etihad didn't load all my luggage due to transfer - so had to stand in line to file a report after a 34 h flight! Very unhappy about that, even though luggage arrived later on same day.. Boarding process was chaotic. Can you get Indians to form a line by zones, as all other airlines do??? Finally, I was cramped into a non reclining window exit row seat even though I had explicitly stated in my Etihad preferences that I preferred aisle. A most uncomfortable journey after a long wait. Almost decided I'll never fly your airline again. Just almost..."
Pros: "great"
Pros: "The flight was short so the food was just a snack. It was ok."
Cons: "The boarding tube was broken and the flight took off late. Boarding was not very orderly. It should be boarding from the back to the front for economy class."
Pros: "When one country allows the same size of lagguage one way .The other way down the other country doesn't allow in the last moment. They do not understand how inconvenient it would be for the travelers to adjust the lagguage ."
Cons: "It was difficult to leave planned lagguage in dust bin."

On time flight, baggage came out fast. Overall good experience

Clean, timely, professional.

Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Cons: "The boarding was poorly managed."
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: "Boarding"
Cons: "Co passengers"
Pros: "nothing, they did provide us with refreshments for flight delay."
Cons: "everything has to be improved"
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."
Pros: "Professional and on time. 2 best things about Indigo"
Pros: "Punctuality, and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Pros: "Service and staff were brilliant"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment . Plastic pot noodles and rice could be changed to something more environmentally sustainable. Seats not very comfortable."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Worst crew. Very arrogant"
Pros: "I liked the total travel time the flight took."
Cons: "The boarding suddenly changed the gate just within minutes of the departure & informed none."
Cons: "Flight 6E 188 to Chennai supposed to leave at 6.20 AM got cancelled by airliner. Lot of discomforts faced. Indigo should pay me penalties to me by three times the charge."
Pros: "Ground reservation and check in crew were amazing."
Cons: "45 minutes in the checking queue. And long queue at the boarding gates. Please get your act together. All it takes is a little forethought and efficiency — not many people looking busy and doing the same thing."
Cons: "."
Cons: "Waited close to an hour for collecting baggage at the terminal"
Cons: "Could have been on time"
Cons: "I wish Indigo flight get in-flight internet."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and caring towarda a patient."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "People requesting to switch seats"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Time from landing to collecting our luggage was the fastest we’ve ever experienced."
